Welcome to the Wrestlinginc.com WWE NXT Recap.
Striker says we'll see the tag match that didn't take place two weeks ago due to Percy Watson being attacked. Regal says he's spoken to Percy Watson and he doesn't believe Percy had anything to do with the attack last week. Regal has hired a security firm to watch things backstage. Striker says they're here and calls them out.

Reks & Hawkins say that they applied for new jobs and Laurinaitis hired them as security. They get on the apron and say they're here to serve and protect so little guys like Striker don't get kidnapped. Striker lunges at them but Regal holds him back. Regal says until he gets a chance to talk to Laurinaitis, there is not much he can do. Regal says nothing better happen or getting fired will be the least of their worries. Hawkins says he and Reks are the eyes and ears of NXT and there is going to be change.

She says she can take care of herself and Bateman apologizes and walks away.
Percy tells Kaitlyn not to worry and that he understands; he leaves to go talk to Bateman. Kaitlyn wonders out loud what is going on…Percy, AJ, Maxine, Bateman?

Kaitlyn finds Percy's red shades. Bateman says Percy never found him.
