WWE NXT Recap: Striker Kidnapped, Regal Gets Foot Massage, Kidd Vs. McGillicutty
Curt Hawkins vs. Justin Gabriel
The two men lock-up; Gabriel gets the upper-hand. He whips Hawkins into the corner and follows-up with a splash. Gabriel then goes to the apron and springboards off the top rope with a high cross-body, but Hawkins moves, causing Gabriel to land face-and-belly-first on the mat. Hawkins capitalizes with a knee to the gut. Hawkins hits a nice bodyslam for a near fall. Gabriel works his way up and springs off the ropes but Hawkins baseball-slides under the bottom rope to the outside. Hawkins tells Regal he runs this show. Back in the ring, Gabriel moves as Hawkins charges him in the corner; Gabriel jumps on the second turnbuckle and hits a back-kick to Hawkins' face. Gabriel hits the 450 Splash for the win.
Winner by pin: Justin Gabriel (5:00)
Hawkins stares Regal down as he sells the move and walks away.
Kaitlyn and Bateman are backstage walking hand-in-hand. They run into Tamina; she is happy for them. The couple leaves. Titus O'Neil and Darren Young come into the shot. Titus is wearing a suit and he is doing his best Arsenio Hall-from-Coming to America-preacher-impression. He calls her a goddess and tells her that he's taken but Darren wants to take her out. Darren awkwardly begins to ask her out when the Uso's come into the shot and say no. The four men insult each other. The Uso's say they will see them in the ring and walk away. Tamina walks away with a disgusted look. Titus tells Young he needs to get with her but for now he should focus. Darren Young vs. Jimmy Uso is next
Darren Young vs. Jimmy Uso w/Jey
The two men trade elbows and chops to the chest. Jimmy stomps Young in the corner. Young tries to leave up the ramp but Jimmy catches him and sends him back in. Jey is on commentary. Young throws Jimmy over the top, to the outside.
Back in the ring, Young is punching Jimmy in the head down on the mat. Regal informs us that during the break the crowd was chanting, "No one knows you," at Young. Young is in full control of Jimmy. Jimmy counters Young on the turnbuckle and kicks him in the back of the head. Jey leaves the booth and begins and "Uso" chant with the crowd. It works because Jimmy hits 2 clotheslines and a back bodydrop on Young. Jimmy hits the running StinkFace. Young kicks out at 2. Young avoids a high-flying attempt from Jimmy and throws him shoulder-first into the turnbuckle. Young hits a modified GTS, where he falls to his back and puts both knees up, and letting Jimmy crash down on them. He gets the pin.
Winner by pin: Darren Young (5:00)
Jey checks on his brother. Backstage, Tamina is looking on, on a monitor while Young celebrates. Titus shows up and tells her to take the night off.
Josh Matthews gets a text on his phone saying his car is gone; he gets up and leaves.
They cut to Maxine telling Johnny Curtis that while Matthews goes to look for his car, she can get next to Regal; she wants off the show. Striker walks past them from around the corner and Curtis smothers him from behind with chloroform, apparently thinking it was Matthews. Maxine fusses at him. They dump Striker in one of those blue equipment crates. Maxine leaves for the announce booth and tells Curtis to stay put. Rhianna...err Alicia Fox walks by; Curtis hits on her; she is disgusted; he creepily follows her.
