Welcome to the WrestlingInc.com WWE NXT Recap.
Tonight, we will hear from NXT Champion, Seth Rollins.
Richie Steamboat vs. Kassius Ohno
We see a video of Steamboat saving Jake Carter from Ohno from 2 weeks ago. Steamboat applies a headlock and hits a shoulderblock for a quick 1. They get into a shoving match. Steamboat hits some chops to the chest in the corner. Regal says Richie has more of a mean streak than his father did. Richie sends Ohno in and follows but Ohno gets a big boot up. Richie quickly shakes it off and hits a series of offense but Ohno thumbs him in the eye. Ohno gets on one knee and pleads with the ref that it was an accident. Richie lands kicks from a seated position out of the corner but Ohno goes back to the eye and the bell rings.
Winner by disqualification: Richie Steamboat
Ohno kicks Richie out of the ring as he holds his eye. Ohno drops him across the security rail and throws him in the ring as the bell repeatedly rings. Ohno hits his patented rolling elbow to the back of Steamboat's head and laughs over his prey's carcass. Several refs call him off. Ohno smiles maniacally on the stage. Ricky Steamboat rushes to the ring from the crowd and screams at the refs. We go to break.
Audrey Marie vs. Paige
Paige gets some chants from the crowd. Audrey holds tight to a headlock and does a hiptoss. Paige reverses and steps on Audrey's hair as she pulls up on her arms. They start to catfight and Paige slams Audrey's head repeatedly on the canvas. They roll around a little and Audrey gets 2. Paige hits a knockout elbow and drops Audrey dead in her tracks. She gets on top and slams her head some more. Paige hits a strong clothesline and screams out before she hits a modified cradle-type DDT for the win.
Winner by pin: Paige
Ricky Steamboat is frantically looking for the trainer's room backstage when he runs into Ohno. Kassius offers his hand and introduces himself. Ohno says that Richie doesn't have a lot of potential and asks Ricky if he saw his son suffering. Ricky tells him how about attacking a man face-to-face. He turns Ohno's face to look at him and shoves him hard. Ohno starts to go off and several refs keep them apart. Ohno asks Steamboat if he's going to armdrag him to death and if he wants his career ended twice. He tells Ricky not to throw his back out. We go to commercial.
Percy Watson vs. Leo Kruger
Kruger crouches in the corner and smiles as he hands his necklace to the ref. The bell rings and Kruger comes to the middle of the ring in a crouching stance like Dhalsim from Street Fighter. Percy complains and the ref makes Kruger get up. Kruger rushes-up into a collar-and-elbow tie-up. He hits knees to the gut and clubbing forearms on the ropes. Kruger hits a snap-suplex and drops vicious blows to Watson's back. Kruger connects with a kick to the face and stomps in the corner and gets 2. Kruger continues his vicious streak. Watson gets in some moves and a couple of nice dropkicks. He connects with the Showtime Splash for 2. Kruger reverses an Irish Whip and drops Watson's neck across the top rope. Kruger uses a reverse rolling neckbreaker for the win.

We see a video of The Ascension's assault of the Uso's last week. The Ascension make their dramatic phenom-like entrance. The Uso's enter.
The Ascension vs. The Uso's
All hell breaks loose right off the bat and the Uso's throw both members of The Ascension out of the ring. We go to break.
Uso's are in control of Cameron in the ring. O'Brian tags himself in and hits a clothesline as Uso turns around. O'Brian stomps Jey in the corner. They make tag after tag and continue stomping. Byron Saxon says it's Jimmy in the ring. Ross can't tell them apart either. Ascension keep Jimmy in their corner and continue to slowly decimate. Jimmy gets a kick in on O'Brian but still fails to make a tag. O'Brian proactively takes Jey out on the apron to prevent it. More punishment and quick tags from Ascension to Jimmy Uso.
Jimmy gets a boot up in the corner and reaches his brother but Cameron tags in as well. Jey gets the best of Cameron and hits the Running Stinkface in the corner. O'Brian interferes and gets thrown out by Jey for his trouble. Cameron fights off a Samoan Drop but gets clocked with a Superkick as soon as he hits his feet. Jey goes up top, O'Brian tries to interfere but Jimmy leaps from half court over the top and hits an impressive splash to take him out. Cameron hits the ropes to make Jey lose his balance. Cameron hits an inverted neckbreaker for the win.
Winners by pin: The Ascension
JR's interview with Seth Rollins is next. We go to commercial.
Jim Ross introduces the NXT Champion Seth Rollins. Rollins comes down, swinging the title over his head. He gets in the ring and Ross shakes his hand and holds the title as Seth puts on an NXT shirt. Ross asks him how he survived his lower back injury to win the title. Rollins says there is always some obstacle you have to face on your way to the top. He says when Jinder Mahal called him a born loser, he used it as motivation. Ross says the hunter has become the hunted and Rollins says if there isn't a bull's-eye on his forehead then he'll put one on there. He says no matter who it is, if they deserve it, he will face them but "sooner or later everybody gets Blacked Out.
