This week's episode of NXT is a recap of the past year in NXT wrestling. Renee Young is the host.

The opening of the WWE Performance Center is shown, and clips of Triple H and Stephanie McMahon talking about it are shown as well.

Then, video packages featuring the various wrestlers (the Wyatt Family, the Shield, Fandango, Xavier Woods, Damien Sandow, Antonio Cesaro, Big E. Langston) that came up on the main roster this year are shown.

Big E. Langston is shown. He talks about how much of a whirlwind 2013 was for him. He says he couldn't have done it without the NXT Universe and the maniacal five count chants. He thanks them and says that it's just the beginning.

Antonio Cesaro is shown next. He says that out of the small crop of technical wrestlers he's admired, William Regal is the only one he's respected. His ruthlessness and evil genius was the inspiration for his career. He thanks Regal for helping him get a job in WWE, but there's only room for one of them.

Back from commercial and Renee Young talks about the two new titles that were introduced into NXT this year. Then, a recap of the finals of the WWE NXT Tag Team Tournament between the Wyatt Family and Adrian Neville and Oliver Grey is shown. Next, a recap of the finals of the NXT Women's Championship Tournament is shown between Paige and Emma.

Then, Devin Taylor is shown. Paige walks up and Taylor asks her what her thoughts were on winning the Women's Championship. She says that she respects Emma because she knows how to go in the ring. She says Emma gave her a hard fought victory. She says that the title means she's the best NXT women's wrestler (with lots of emphasis on wrestler). She says she wants more, and says this is a message to all the divas, even AJ. Sooner rather than later she will be the most dominant anti diva to walk through the WWE. She will make history as a wrestler.

Paige walks off and Bo Dallas walks up. He says he knows Devin wants to hear about all the hardships he faced with beating Big E. Langston and becoming the champion, but instead he has to talk about all of his bolievers and how important it is to bolieve in yourself; more importantly, Bolieveing in him. He talks about the moment that gave everyone a reason to bolieve in him, and then shows a recap of him winning the NXT Championship from Langston.

Back from commercial and a video of Bray Wyatt cutting a promo about his time in NXT is shown. He says they were defined in NXT on the principle of down with the machine, and have taken that principle over to the main roster.

Next, a video package showcasing the future stars of the WWE (Aiden English, Mojo Rawley, Bayley, Tyler Breeze, Alexander Rusev, Sasha Banks, Corey Graves, and Sami Zayn) is shown.

Then, Young talks about how the current stars of the WWE want to see all that the future holds in NXT, and a video that shows the various guest appearances throughout the year by Damien Sandow, Christian, the Bellas, Fandango, Santino Marella, Paul Heyman, Mark Henry, Dolph Ziggler, John Cena, Big Show, Sheamus, Rob Van Dam, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, AJ Lee, Ric Flair, and HBK is shown.

William Regal is shown, and he says he is in the late autumn of his career and questions what his legacy is about. He has been a vicious, spiteful fighter and a unique entertainer, but he never became the World Heavyweight Champion. He says that's his fault, because he has a knack for getting himself in trouble. He says that the people that know know he is a second to none world class technical wrestler. He knows that Antonio Cesaro is a better wrestler than he's ever been, and Cesaro knows that. He says Cesaro has an intense desire to prove it. He knows that the only way he has a chance is with a miracle, but that's not coming to an old villain like him. He's not worried though, and he relishes the thought. He is going to fight with all the venom and vile he has left, and if this is the end he can't think of a more noble way to go than by being beaten by the ultimate competitor.
