-Raquel Diaz Vignette; She Debuts Next
Raquel Diaz makes her entrance, mic'ed. She cuts a promo on the Divas and says she's here to give NXT a makeover.
Raquel Diaz vs. Paige
Diaz immediately hits a drop toe-hold and viciously and repeatedly slams Paige's head on the mat. Diaz gets 1. Paige fights up and hits a couple of clotheslines and a sidekick for 2. Diaz screams, a la her mother with every strike. Diaz catches Paige's boot and takes her down. Diaz picks Paige up in a powerbomb but instead drops Paige, face-first, off her (Diaz) back (Gory Bomb). She gets the pin.
Winner by pin: Raquel Diaz
Backstage, Alex Riley asks Aksana where catering is. She grabs his hand and says she can take him there. Cesaro shows up and asks what is going on. Aksana says that Riley was hitting on her. Cesaro says how American of Riley. Riley gives him the advice that you should never trust a girl, especially in this business. Cesaro says he's going to kick his teeth down his throat. They make the match for next week.
Heath Slater vs. Justin Gabriel
JR has joined commentary. The announcers play up the history that Slater and Gabriel share from Nexus. Gabriel hits a leg sweep for a near fall and then a quick armdrag into an armbar. Slater recovers into a headlock and Gabriel counters. Gabriel hits another armdrag and goes back to the armbar. Slater works up and hits strikes in the corner. Gabriel goes to the apron and tries to springboard in, but he slips/Slater pushes him and he falls backward onto the floor. This looked pretty nasty.
Slater is in control in the ring, he gets 2. Gabriel works up from a headlock but Slater hits a neckbreaker for 2. Slater keeps the pressure on. He whips Gabriel in hard and makes the cover but Gabriel gets his foot on the rope. Slater goes back to the headlock. Slater hits a swinging neckbreaker in the ropes and gets 2. Gabriel ducks Slater in the corner and Slater slams into the turnbuckle. Gabriel uses his educated feet to mount offense.
Gabriel hits a sit-down powerbomb and gets 2. Slater hits a vicious spinebuster out of nowhere and gets 2. Gabriel continues to sell the neck. They counter each other and Slater ends up with the upper-hand as he hits a reverse suplex on Gabriel for another 2. Slater hits a neckbreaker off the second turnbuckle for another 2. Slater places Gabriel back on the top corner but Gabriel fights him off and comes off with a hurricanrana into a neckbreaker for the win.
Winner by pin: Justin Gabriel
