Yoshi Tatsu vs. Corey Graves
Graves picks up a mic before the match. He has something to say. In the event that this is the first time you're watching NXT on the WWE Network, he wants to introduce himself. They call him Graves. He wouldn't have to introduce himself if he had been invited to compete at Arrival like he should have been. Instead, he's forced to come out and fight a guy that still thinks he can be a WWE superstar. More importantly, there's something else that's been bothering him. That one thing is Sami Zayn. All he has heard about is Sami Zayn and his rematch against Cesaro. He asks when the last time was Zayn even won a match. Apparently all you need is heart to get chance after chance with people you can't beat. The fact is, he would only need one chance and he would beat Cesaro. Instead, he is here with Yoshi Tatsu, who hasn't been relevant since ever. He says let's just get it over with.
Graves gets in the ring. The bell rings. Graves rolls outside and picks up the mic. He says forget this and walks up the ramp. The ref starts the count. Graves back to ringside. Yoshi gets out of the ring. Graves clotheslines him and sends him into the steps. Graves gets back in the ring and the ref starts counting Yoshi out. The ref gets to 10 before Yoshi can get back in.
Winner via count out: Corey Graves
Graves attacks Yoshi. He sends him back in the ring and locks in his Lucky 13 submission. Sami Zayn's music hits, and he runs down to the ring. Graves slides outside, and Zayn checks on Yoshi. Zayn picks up a mic and says he didn't know he and Graves had a problem. If Graves wanted to face him, all he had to do was ask. He says that they don't need to wait. They can fight right here tonight. Graves backs up the ramp.
Then, footage of Devin Taylor last night is shown. She is backstage at an Adam Rose (formerly Leo Kruger) launch party. There is a bunch of people dancing, and Taylor says she wouldn't expect anything less from Rose. Taylor sits next to Rose on a couch, and he tells her to watch this guy twirling a big glow stick around. Taylor says everyone is excited for his in ring debut. Rose says he is excited because everything you know is about to change. He quiets her and tells her she is being boring at a party. Rose gets up and starts dancing.
