Paul Heyman came out, saying he was here to scout a new Paul Heyman guy.
|"And for those of you who shout ECW at me, I can assure you that I am not here to live off the past, but scout for the future." - Paul Heyman|
|"Someone in that locker room can be the next Intercontinental Champion and that man is CURTIS AXELLL." - Paul Heyman|
|"Curtis Axel is better than perfect." - Paul Heyman|
|"I didn't say it was tonight. How about Thanksgiving? You can give thanks for me giving you an Intercontinental title shot." - Curtis Axel|
WWE Intercontinental Title - Curtis Axel vs Big E Langston
|"I just thought of something. If you put Paul Heyman's and Big E's hairdo's together, you'll have one complete haircut." - William Regal|
|"You wanna make this personal? Let's up the ante. Cesaro, let's make this a two out of three falls match." - Sami Zayn|
|"They wanna expose me? Cesaro, I'm gonna expose you for what you really are - a coward." - Sami Zayn|
Mason Ryan vs Scott Dawson
There was a funny moment on the commercials where they shilled Total Divas and Summerslam in the same block, even though both events are on at the same time. I'll be reviewing both shows, but Total Divas probably won't be up until Monday.
NXT Diva's Championship - Paige vs Summer Rae
|"It could be anyone. It could be the camera guy. Hello." - AJ Lee on her opponent for next week's Divas title match.|
|"Hi AJ, I'm Bayley." - Bayley|
|"Sorry to bother you, but I followed you from your car, then I followed you from the locker room." - Bayley|
|"Do you think you could wrestle me for your championship?" - Bayey | "Sure, why not?" - AJ Lee|
|"Maybe after I beat you, we could still be friends." - Bayley|
During the break, Emma attacked Summer Rae.
Corey Graves, Xavier Woods and Adrian Neville vs The Shield
- Dolph Ziggler comes to NXT
- 2/3 Falls - Sami Zayn vs Antonio Cesaro
- WWE Diva's Title - AJ Lee vs Bayley
Overall thoughts: The show wasn't that great. It was okay but the main and the women's match needed more time and the Big E/Axel thing was a waste of time. Too many bad finishes here too. I did like the Bayley segment though and I thought they did a good job in building up stuff for next week.
