Zayn thanks him for the analysis of his inner psyche. He says that he and Cesaro go back a long time. He respects Cesaro and calls him a workhorse and a true competitor. He says that it's strange Cesaro will fight anyone anywhere, but won't fight him. Cesaro asks how many times is it going to take him beating him to realize that he is better. Zayn says he just has to beat him once more. If Cesaro wins, he just confirms what he already knew, that he is better than Sami Zayn. But maybe it won't go down like that, and maybe Cesaro is afraid that since they bring out the best in each other, his best can't beat Zayn one more time.
Cesaro asks how Zayn's knee is. Zayn says it's fine. Cesaro asks if his knee is medically cleared. Zayn says he doesn't have to worry about it; it will be fine. Cesaro asks for Zayn's word that if he accepts the challenge there will be no excuses when he beats him. Zayn says he has his word and extends his hand. The crowd chants pinky promise, and Zayn extends his pinky. Cesaro does the same and says no. He kicks out Zayn's knee and leaves the ring. Triple H's music hits and he walks out.
Triple H addresses Cesaro as the crowd chants best for business. Triple H says that Cesaro may not want the match, but it seems as if the crowd does. More importantly, he wants the match. While it seems like Zayn's knee isn't 100 percent now, he has it on good authority that it will be by February 27th. Triple H says that for NXT's live special, Cesaro will face Sami Zayn because it's best for business. He leaves.
Back from commercial and Tye Dillinger is waiting in the ring.
Tye Dillinger vs. CJ Parker
They lock up and chain wrestle. Tye takes Parker to the mat. He has Parker's head locked in from the front. Parker gets to his feet and flips Tye off of him. He hits Tye with an airplane spin. Parker hits his palm strike to the face for the win.
Winner: CJ Parker
Parker takes up a mic. He asks why the crowd doesn't love him. He asks if they know what he does for them. He reduces, reuses, and recycles. He drives a fuel efficient Ford Fiesta because he cares about the Earth, and the people boo him for that. He should boo the crowd because they melt his polar ice caps, put holes in the ozone, and cut down his trees. The world is going down the tubes and it's the NXT Universe's fault because they're incapable of loving. They don't love him, the world, or themselves. From this moment forward, he doesn't love the crowd either.
Back from commercial and the Wyatt Family make their entrance.
Louis and Harper start off. Harper shoves him around the ring. He chops Louis in the corner and tags in Rowan. Rowan clubs Louis in the back. He tosses Louis behind him and strikes him in the corner. Harper tags in. He takes Jason Jordan out off the apron. Rowan body avalanches Louis in the corner. Harper hits Louis with the discus clothesline for the win.
Winners: The Wyatt Family
Bray gets in the ring after the match. Harper and Rowan hold Jordan, and Bray hits him with Sister Abigail. Bray picks up the mic and says that souls cry at the thought of their presence being felt. They haven't forgot where they came from. NXT has and always will belong to the Wyatt Family. Follow the buzzards.
