We start off with a video package showing the domination of Titus O’Neil in the Redemption Challenge as he made it a win a number of times. We then see Derrick Bateman trying to cost Titus O’Neil two weeks ago. Then we fast forward to Derrick Bateman versus Titus O’Neil from last week when Derrick got help from Darren Young. What will happen this week?
We are live on tape from Lexington, Kentucky and your announcers are William ‘Is Ashley Judd here tonight’ Regal and Todd ‘What about Rex Chapman’ Grisham. Your hosts are Matt ‘Where is Pat Riley’ Striker and Maryse.
Matt Striker is in the ring and he welcomes everyone to NXT. He brings out Titus O’Neil. Regal and Grisham wonder where Hornswoggle might be. Regal says that Titus has redeemed himself after his performance last season.
Titus is asked about the alliance between Derrick Bateman and Darren Young. Titus repeats the question and then he says that it is cute. HE says that he has dominated this competition and he says that he is the most dominant rookie in NXT history. He understands why they want to double team him or form an alliance because they know that he is a threat. The only way they can win is to take them out. He doesn’t care about Young or Bateman or any of their family members. He only cares about himself. He barks but it is interrupted by Derrick Bateman’s music.
Derrick and Darren have mics and Derrick says that is big talk from a big man. With all of the hot garbage coming out of his mouth, you can’t look past the fact that last week, he beat Titus.
Titus admits that Derrick beat him, but he wants Derrick to beat that he can beat him in no way in possible hell in a one on one match.
Darren says that he has been dominating this season. Titus is dominating in the Redemption Points because Titus is pandering to the WWE Universe and Darren says that he doesn’t care.
Darren says that he is going to win NXT all by himself. He doesn’t need a pro or the WWE Universe because he is going to do it by himself.
Derrick says that they agree that Titus has reached the top of what he can do and he will be eliminated.
Titus wants a tag match and everyone appears to like it except for Darren Young. Darren says that the only way they will face Titus tonight is if they can choose Titus’ partner.
Titus is okay with that and Derrick and Darren says that they are going to take care of the most annoying and most contrite person on NXT, Matt Striker.
Matt says that he hasn’t wrestled for four years. Darren says that he doesn’t care because he has been embarrassed by Striker since Season One. They will take Striker to school tonight.
Titus says that they are going to take the wood to Darren and Derrick and they will also make it a win.
Titus barks as only Titus can while Matt tries to figure out what he got into.
