What Happened at NXT: October 14th 2015

Tonight, NXT begins with a TakeOver: Respect recap video. The video focuses on highlights of Samoa Joe and Finn Balor winning the Dusty Classic and the thirty-minute Iron Man match between Bayley and Sasha Banks. After the Respect montage, the regular NXT opening video plays.

When the cameras focus on Full Sail, Rich Brennan welcomes us as Bayley’s music plays. Bayley comes out and makes her way to the ring. When Bayley steps through the ropes, the NXT Universe starts “Match of the Year” chants.

Bayley says NXT made history. She said the whole night was about respect. Not just her match with Sasha Banks, but also with the Dusty Classic. Bayley says that Dusty had a big influence on both her and Sasha and was big reason they had the main event match at TakeOver. Bayley says that being in the main event is what she and Sasha both had dreamed since they were little. Bayley continued that she and Sasha want women’s wrestling to be respected. She continued by saying that she felt the Women’s division looks like the future has been validated.

Just as Bayley was set to continue, Alexa Bliss, who comes to the ring flanked by Blake and Murphy, interrupts her. Alexa says what Bayley accomplished at Respect was incredible. She told Bayley that she was in awe. She also told Bayley nobody deserved to be champion more than her. She says that Bayley is an incredible champion. Alexa says that’s all she came out to say. She said that the future of the Women’s division has no limit. Alexa says she is excited to share it with Bayley. She raises Bayley’s arm then steals the championship belt.

As Bayley starts to attack her, Alexa hides behind Blake and Murphy. Alexa says they wont be sharing the title. Alexa said she didn’t write letters to herself when she was ten, but she wants the title too. She said people like Bayley aren’t meant to be champion and it will be easier when she takes the championship from her. She throws the belt back at Bayley then, the tag trio leaves the ring.

Brennan, Graves, and Saxton are shown and they talk the incredible event that took place last week. They hyped the Dusty Rhodes Classic. Brennan says their cameras caught up with the winners following the match. The show cuts to an interview from Finn and Joe recorded just after the trophy presentation. The interviewer asked them how they feel. Before either man can answer, General Manager William Regal comes out and offers his congratulations. Finn says they are both and honored. Joe says it was both a pleasure and honor to be his tag team partner in the classic. Joe tells Finn that, even he hates to spring this on him, but he has been undefeated in NXT, and Joe did come here for one reason, he wants a shot at the championship.

Balor responds by telling Joe that he knows him better than anyone. Balor says he is a fighting champion and if Joe wants a shot, he’s got it. Regal interjects however and tells the two gladiators that its not that easy. Regal says that so much time went into the Dusty Rhodes Classic, the company has lost on who the number one contender is for the NXT Championship. Regal says that, like the Dusty Rhodes Classic, he believes everyone deserves a chance. Regal announces that, next week, there will be a battle royal to name the number one contender. Joe pleads his case to be named number one contender, asking Regal if he has left any doubt? Joe points that he has beaten everyone Regal has put in front of him. Joe reminds Regal that he is undefeated in NXT and deserves the title shot. Regal is unmoved and tells Joe that, next week, there will be a number one contender battle royal and the winner will be the number one contender. Regal tells Joe that its time to focus. Regal leaves to close the segment. The battle royal is teased as the main event for later show as we head to the first break.

When we come back, Tye Dillenger is cutting a promo on the number one contender battle royal. Dillenger says that twenty-two other men will battle tonight to see who will be the number one contender to Finn Balor’s NXT championship. Dillenger says there can only be one number one contender, one winner, and that there is only one perfect ten.

Apollo Crews also cuts a promo regarding the number one contender’s battle royal. Crews says that, since he has arrived in NXT, that he wants to be champion. He says tonight, after he becomes number one contender, he will go on to become NXT Champion.

Rhyno also cuts a promo about the battle royal. Rhyno says that everyone is talking about becoming the new number one contender. Rhyno says, in his mind, he’s already there because he has already been the face of a revolution. Rhyno reminds us that he was the last ECW champion. He says tonight, he will be one step closer to being the face of a new revolution when he becomes NXT Champion. The battle royal is hyped for later in the show.
