Now on to the show....
The intro rolls and we are ready for NXT!
The show begins with JBL in the ring alongside Johnny Curtis, Big E. Langston, and Maxine. Behind them there is a table with a cloth draped over it.
JBL: Last week, I made my long awaited return to WWE as the new general manager for NXT. However, I am not back because of you people. You people disgusted me a few years back and looking into the crowd, I see that nothing has changed. The real reason I have come back is the man to my left, Johnny Curtis. John, You have so much potential, but are forced to be on this sad excuse for television. That is where I come in. I will turn this show into must-see television, and people will notice Johnny Curtis. That brings me to what lies on this table.
JBL pulls of the cloth to reveal a glimmering title belt.
JBL: This right here is the first ever NXT World Heavyweight Championship. Tonight's main event is for this title, and it will be Johnny Curtis vs MVP vs Big E. Langston. And to make sure that the match is called right down the middle, I will be the special guest referee.
Johnny: I vow to you people that I will become NXT World Heavyweight Champion before the night is over. Montel, you are in for the biggest beating of your life! Together, Big E. and I will destroy you. And I will walk out as champion, because I am the real deal, I am real entertainment, and I am a real wrestler! De—
MVP's music hits and he comes out with Percy Watson.
Montel: Classy move. Once again Johnny Curtis can't face me like a man, so he hides behind his buddies. Curtis, you may be able to run for now, but this won't end tonight. It will never end. Curtis, I came back to WWE for these people. I want to give these people what they want. And these people want to see me kick your ass!
Johnny: That's too bad, because after tonight, you won't be kicking anybody's ass. You're nothing more than a small roadblock on my path to greatness. Step one is tonight, when I defeat you for the NXT World Heavyweight Championship.
MVP stares down Johnny Curtis as we head to a commercial break.
Match 1: Lucky Cannon vs Luke Robinson
The song Gone by Fuel hits and out comes the debuting Luke Robinson. He has a mic in his hand.
Luke: Ladies and gents, most of you already know me as the man that lost Tough Enough. You people know that I should have easily won and received a guaranteed contract. Instead, that sad excuse for a wrestler named Andy Levine came out the victor. Well where is Big Andy now!!! I am here to prove that Stone Cold Steve Austin made the wrong decision.
Lucky Cannon comes out and gets in the ring. The bell rings and the two men lock up.

Promo 1: Jacob Novak in-Ring Segment
Jacob Novak comes down to the ring and grabs a mic.
Jacob: I am sick and tired of you people looking down on me. Twice, I have been a part of this show, and twice, you people have voted m off before any other contestant. That is why I have come back. I am back on NXT to prove that you people don't know talent if it came up and bit you in the a--.
"Rise Up" by Disciple hits and Darren Young comes out alongside Dante Dash.
Darren: Jacob, you sound like a broken record. Time and time again, you come out here and complain about being eliminated. What you don't realize is that you got eliminated because you are terrible. I don't like these people either, but they made the right decision when they voted you off. I mean, last week you complained and said you would prove them all wrong, and then you lost.
Jacob: You know that Titus O'Neil got a cheap victory last week. I dominated him throughout the entire match, and destroyed him afterwards. Neither of you are anywhere close to as talented as me. I k—
Dante: Excuse me? Did you just say that you were better than us? You are a nobody! You made a big mistake insulting us, and now you are gonna pay for it.
Dante and Darren pummel Jacob to the ground. Dante then jumps on Novak and locks in a dragon sleeper hold, A.K.A. Dante's Wish. Dash doesn't release the lock unit Jacob passes out.

Sofia Cortez comes out and has a mic in her hand.
Sofia: Shaul, in case you haven't realized, I am your opponent here tonight. I have heard the hype about you and to be honest, I'm not impressed. I don't care if you're part of the legendary Guerrero family because tonight, I will put an end to your career as quickly as it started.
The bell rings and the match is underway. Shaul quickly hits a head scissors takedown. When Cortez gets back up, Guerrero hits a dropkick, sending Sofia to the outside.

Suddenly, Catholi-Funk hits and out comes D'Angelo Dinero.
Dinero: Austin, you make no sense. You claim to be the best and want to take out all of the failures on the roster. However, when a man such as myself wants to face you one on one, you go running for the hills.
Austin: I don't run from you Dinero. There is n doubt in my mind that I can beat you. However, you don't deserve a match with me. If you really do want to step in the ring with me, you are going to have to prove that you are good enough.

D'Angelo stares down Austin before heading to the back.
Promo 2: JBL Backstage

Todd: Um, my name is Todd. At the end of the night, who do you think will be NXT World Champion.
JBL: There is no doubt in my mind that Johnny Curtis will take out the incompetent MVP. Curtis deserves the title and he will get it tonight.
Todd: Well, it seems that you forgot about the third participant, Big E. Langston.
