The opening video is new this week and it features the regulars of NXT instead of the previous one, about time. Matt Striker welcomes us to the show and tells us that next week is NXT's 100th episode. He says he's been bringing back some special guests, and this week he's bringing back someone from season 3. He welcomes Alicia Fox, so I'm guessing she was a pro on that season. Fox purrs as Striker messes with her cat-tiger head thing. He says that Maxine has done so well since returning to NXT and that Maxine was Alicia's rookie on season 3. Alicia says something about EBay, but Maxine's music plays and she comes out in ring gear. Walking down the ramp, she acknowledges Alicia, and she says this is her ring as she gets in it. She says Alicia is a waste of space, and Alicia says Maxine was stubborn during the third season and she still is. Striker tries to cut in, but Maxine tells him to "shove it Seacrest." Alicia says she was rude and asks Maxine how she is doing, or "who she is doing." Maxine says she's sorry that Alicia gets lonely at night. Maxine says she always ends up on her feet, but Alicia says she thought Maxine was more comfortable on her back and pushes her. Maxine says she's usually on top and tackles Alicia. Striker calls for a ref as the two girls are fighting each other. This impromptu match is about to start now.
Alicia Fox vs Maxine
Maxine pushes Fox in the corner, and they lock up. Fox does the splits but gets caught with a knee to the back by Maxine, who then locks in a Sleeper, but Fox Snapmares her over. Maxine quickly hits a boot to the face, but only gets a one count. Maxine hits some shoulder thrusts in the corner, then throws Fox across the ring. Maxine hits a European Uppercut and starts choking Fox with her foot in the corner. Maxine then jumps on Fox's back and locks on to her face. Maxine then slides down Fox's back and rolls her up, but Fox flips it and pins Maxine for the three count.
Winner: Alicia Fox
Fox celebrates with the fans at ringside as Maxine looks frustrated in the ring. Striker and Regal announce on commentary that Johnny Curtis and Maxine will get married next week. Striker then plugs Trent Barreta vs Tyler Reks, which will be next. We go to commercial.
Back from the break, Trent Barreta makes his way to the ring to little reaction. Tyler Reks is out next, accompanied by the cane-welding Curt Hawkins.
Trent Barreta vs Tyler Reks (with Curt Hawkins)
Reks quickly takes control with a kick to the gut, then some more strikes. Reks then Irish Whips Barreta and takes him down with a back elbow on the rebound. Barreta is able to take control with a Dropkick, then he goes up top, but Reks rolls out of the ring and regroups with Hawkins. This doesn't stop Barreta however as he hits a dive over the top rope on both Hawkins and Reks. Barreta gets back in the ring, but is met with a big boot for a two count. We replay that amazing dive as Reks pounds on Barreta in the corner. Reks then hits a Reverse STO, slamming Barreta into the middle turnbuckle for a two count. Reks then locks in a Quarter Nelson on a downed Barreta, but Barreta gets to his feet quickly, only to be slammed down by Reks. Reks misses a knee drop and Barreta hits some strikes, but gets caught with a Clothesline for a two count. Reks locks in the submission again, but Barreta once again fights back, but he is once again met with a kick to the gut, and Reks follows it up with a Scoop Slam. Barreta gets to legs up in the corner to take a running Reks down. Barreta then goes for a corkscrew moonsault, but Reks sidesteps him, and Reks starts taunting in the middle of the ring before picking Barreta up. Reks goes for the Burning Hammer, but Barreta reverses it into a Backslide for the three count.
Winner: Trent Barreta
After the match, Barreta gets blindsided by Hawkins and him and Reks start attacking him. Hawkins uses his cane to his advantage, but Yoshi Tatsu comes out of nowhere to even the odds. He takes out Hawkins with a Spinning Wheel Kick, then Reks with a Roundhouse kick. We replay some of the recent events during and after the match.
Backstage, Justin Gabriel and Derrick Bateman are backstage talking about Maxine. Gabriel says he thinks Maxine is mad about the email he sent Teddy Long. Bateman looks through his phone and says he never sent that email. Gabriel said either he left his phone at the bar…again, or someone hacked his email. Gabriel leaves with the parting words, "Maybe your password shouldn't be 1234 anymore." Bateman has an angry looks on his face, then screams out Johnny Curtis's name. The announcers plug The Usos vs Tyson Kidd and JTG, which is next.
Back from the break, The Usos are on the ramp and they perform the Siva Tau as they usually do during their entrance. It seemed shorter this time. JTG and Tyson Kidd come out next to JTG's music. Regal puts over Kidd on commentary as one of the best in-ring competitors, agreed.
The Usos (Jey and Jimmy Uso) vs JTG and Tyson Kidd
Kidd and what looks to be Jimmy start the match off, and Kidd quickly locks on a Side Headlock, reverses a slam, but gets caught with a slap to the face. Jimmy tags in Jey and they hit dual Elbows for a two count. Kidd hits a quick Jawbreaker and tags in JTG, but JTG gets caught with a backhand, then a Northern Lights Suplex, which Jey bridged for a two count. Jey tags in Jimmy and Jimmy hits a Clothesline on JTG before tagging Jey back in. Jey hits a headbutt for a two count, and Irish Whips JTG, who reverses it. Jey knocks down Kidd, but JTG is able to hit a Neckbreaker for a two count. Kidd gets the tag and starts stomping Jey in the corner. Kidd distracts the ref as JTG attacks Jey. Kidd then hits some stiff kicks to the back before locking in a Rear Chinlock. Jey fights out, but Kidd hits a Spinning Mule Kick, only to be caught by a Flying Forearm by Jey. Both men tag in their partners, and Jimmy takes down JTG multiple times before hitting the Alley-Uce. Jimmy then hits a Running Butt Bump in the corner, but Tyson breaks up the pin attempt. He then takes out Jey Uso and goes for a Suicide Dive, but Jey catches him and hits a Samoan Drop onto the barricade in one swift motion. Jimmy then gets caught by JTG, but Jimmy hits a Savate Kick to an airborne JTG for the win.
Winners: The Usos
We go to commercial as the Usos celebrate their victory in the ring.
Back from the break, we go to the Raw Rebound. After the rebound, Aksana and Maxine are seen backstage in front of the Divas' locker room. Maxine talks about how tired of everything she is. Aksana says if she needs any help to ask her. Bateman shows up and sends Aksana away. Maxine makes Bateman shut up and tells him they are done. Every time Bateman tries to talk, Maxine interrupts him. Maxine says excuse her while she goes to watch her fiancé's match, and she walks off. Up next, Alex Riley vs Johnny Curtis.
Alex Riley's awesome music welcomes us back to NXT and he comes out to a pretty big pop for NXT's standards. Johnny Curtis is out next with his fiancée, Maxine.
Alex Riley vs Johnny Curtis (with Maxine)
They lock up as Regal and Striker make some pretty funny marriage jokes. Riley takes control with a Hip Toss, and Curtis rolls out of the ring and talks with Maxine. Curtis hits Riley with a Shoulder Thrust and then slams him down before sending him into the turnbuckle extremely hard for a two count. Curtis then locks in a Three-Quarter Facelock, but Riley fights out and blocks a right-hand with an STO. Riley then hits a Flying Forearm, then reverses Curtis's back body drop with a kick to the head. He goes to the ropes, but Maxine stops him, and the distraction allows Curtis to hit a Suplex Slam for the three count, and the incredibly quick victory.
Winner: Johnny Curtis
After the match, Maxine and Curtis celebrate with a kiss. Bateman then comes out and says he knows what Curtis did, and next week this all ends. Bateman then walks back to the back as his music plays, and the announcers question what he meant by that. Up next, Darren Young calls out Titus O'Neil.
Back from the commercial, Darren Young comes out in street clothes to what I guess is heat, but there's very little reaction. We go back to three weeks ago when Young faked the broken arm and took out Titus. Young says he's the most dominant individual on NXT. He says he's defeated Percy Watson, Derrick Bateman, and Titus O'Neil, so he's the baddest man on NXT. Young says Titus is here tonight, but he knows D-Young is unbeatable, so he won't show up. Young says he runs NXT, but Titus O'Neil comes out with a serious look on his face, also dressed in street clothes. Young says Titus doesn't know when to quit and he's just as much of a loser as the people here in Laredo. Titus says that there's actually a room full of dogs in the house. The crowd barks, but I like to think they're just booing Titus since it's similar. Titus says they are winners, unlike Darren Young. Titus says he wants to address this whole situation. He says they both wanted to prove they have what it takes, but along the line, throughout all the challenges and redemption points, which he says Striker has forgotten about, and that he doesn't care about this point. He says if you look around, there's no Percy Watson, or JTG, it's just Titus and Young. He says they need to deal with this situation right now. Young calls him an idiot because he's beaten Titus more times than he can count, and he stutters through telling Titus to shove it. He says this place was a lot better when Titus was complaining and apologizing to his "stupid" kids the past two weeks. Titus tells him to watch his tone, but Young obviously doesn't listen and continues. He continues to call Titus's kids stupid. Titus says he can talk about everyone all he wants, but he will not talk about Titus's kids without getting the hell beat out of him. Titus says that's two, and Young asks "Two what? The two times I've beat you inside this ring. No, it's the two little quitters you got at home." Almost instantly, Titus takes down Young with a right hand, and pounces on him. Striker says he wants to see a fight and that next week will have Darren Young vs Titus O'Neil in a no-disqualification match. Referees struggle with breaking up Titus and Young outside the ring. The show fades to black.
