*Spoilers* WWE NXT Taping Results; The NXT Title Tournament
World Wrestling Entertainment taped three more episodes of NXT Thursday night from the campus of Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida. Thanks to Wrestling News World Orlando correspondent Scott Brooks for the following results:
Jim Ross, William Regal, and Byron Saxton arrived for commentary.
* Alex Riley defeated Antonio Cesaro w/Aksana via the TKO.
* A video is shown featuring the participants in the NXT title tournament. They are Bo Dallas, Richie Steamboat, Jinder Mahal, Tyler Reks, Drew McIntyre, Michael McGillicutty and Justin Gabriel
* Richie Steamboat defeated Leo Kruger with the Sling Blade to advance in the tournament.
* Big E. Langston squashed Adam Mercer.
* Raquel Diaz defeated Audrey Marie via Gory Bomb. After, Raquel drew an L on Audrey’s forehead with lipstick.
* Mike Dalton & Jason Jordan defeated Hunico & Camacho via Dalton countering Hunico tossing Dalton in the air towards Camacho for a powerbomb attempt, but Dalton countered the powerbomb with a hurricanrana pinfall.
* Seth Rollins defeated Drew McIntyre via the Blackout to advance to the semifinals of the tournament.
* Michael McGillicutty defeated Justin Gabriel via McGuillicutter to advance to the semifinals in the tournament.
* Kassius Ohno defeated CJ Parker via Rolling Elbow.
* Jinder Mahal defeated Bo Dallas via Camel Clutch to advance in the tournament.
* Paige & Tamina Snuka defeated Kaitlyn & Kaylee Turner via Small Package by Paige on Kaylee.
* Heath Slater came out to issue an open challenge which was answered by Orlando’s own Scotty Too Hotty
* Scotty Too Hotty defeated Heath Slater via The Worm.
* The Usos beat Kenneth Cameron & Conor O’Brian by DQ when Conar pushed one of the Usos of the top rope to the floor when he wasn’t the legal man. After, they hit Total Elimination on the other Uso.
* Jinder Mahal defeated Richie Steamboat via Camel Clutch to advance to the finals of the tournament.
* Seth Rollins defeated Michael McGillicutty via Blackout to advance to the finals of the NXT Championship Tournament.
* Afterwards, Jinder Mahal came out and stared at Rollins. Dusty came out and said the finals are set as Jinder attempted to attack Rollins but Rollins got the upperhand.
* Kane defeated Cody Rhodes via Chokeslam. Kane appeared to have tweaked his knee at some point during the match.
* Next taping is July 26th featuring the NXT Champion being crowned in a match between Seth Rollins & Jinder Mahal.
* Commentary did not seem to be going on for Kane/Cody so I’d assume that’s a dark match for the live crowd. Slater/Scotty might be as well seeing as Scotty is from here, but they may end up airing it due to the reception he received.
* Due to the way they have been airing the episodes, some matches may be on at different points than I am thinking they will air between the three. There is no real distinguishable stop time between episodes so I apologize if it is not 100% accurate.
