Hey, Bleacher Report! This is a new show that the makers of Fantasy WWE have decided would be interesting for your readers to look at. Obviously, we are recreating NXT, but the new general manager, Raffaele Spano, is at a severe disadvantage.
Spano has to use a smaller group of superstars, as many of the top-flight stars are on SmackDown and Raw. Also, he is only using FCW/WWE talent rather than stemming out to TNA and RoH. The show may not have significant star power, but its feuds and well-written matches will more than make up for it.
There is no need to rate the show, as it would not be fair to try and rate it with such a weak roster. But please do leave a comment with any comments and possible improvements.
With that said, what's in store for NXT's third episode? Let's find out.
Editor's Note: Be on the lookout for more episodes of Fantasy WWE coming out soon.
Let's get to NXT!
The new NXT video package welcomes us to NXT. Standing in the middle of the ring alongside Ryback is Dean Ambrose with a microphone.
He goes to speak and the fans boo frantically. He raises the microphone back to his mouth and laughs like a maniac. The fans are going nuts!
Dean Ambrose: “Well, Well, Well…”
Dean Ambrose: “I seem to have been forgotten over the past few weeks, huh? Well I guess after last week, no one will forget Dean Ambrose anymore.”
The fans are livid, chanting ‘You Suck’ at Ambrose.
Dean Ambrose: “Smackdown is my show… You people think I care about this second rate show? No, No –
A little kid in the front row shouts ‘Go home then’ causing the people around him to laugh.
Dean Ambrose: “Shut up, you little bastard!”
Dean Ambrose: “You people will learn to shut up when Dean Ambrose is talking!”

Road Dogg’s music hits and the crowd goes nuts. Road Dogg stands on the stage with half a dozen security guards in tow.
Road Dogg: “Hell no boy, I’ll give you three seconds to get out of my ring or these boys here will escort you out”
The fans count along with Road Dogg and Ambrose sits on the top turnbuckle laughing. Road Dogg orders security to escort both men out of the arena. Ryback stands strong in the centre of the ring. Two security guard rush in and Ryback makes short work of them.
Ryback edges the others to come in and they oblige. Ryback destroys one with a boot to the face, he hits the second with a hard clothesline and one security leaves the ring. There’s only one security guard left and Ryback hits his Muscle Buster-like manoeuvre on him. Road Dogg looks on in awe.
Ambrose laughs as jumps down from the turnbuckle and steps out onto the apron facing Road Dogg. He claps in Road Dogg’s face and jumps down from the apron.
Road Dogg: “Whoa, since you don’t want to leave the building, you can compete here tonight.”
Road Dogg orders a referee to make his way to the ring. Road Dogg informs Ambrose that he is going to the back to find a suitable opponent for him and the match will take place after the break.
Derrick Bateman’s music hits and he makes his way down to the ring to a decent reception. Byron Saxton welcomes us to NXT and informs people of what happened before the break.
The bell rings and both men tie-up. Ambrose backs himself into the corner and slides under the middle rope and shouts at the ref to get Bateman away from him.
Ryback stands tall on the outside as he looks on. They go to tie up again but Ambrose smartly kicks Bateman in the midsection and backs him up to a turnbuckle with hard chops to the chest.
Ambrose now Irish-whips Bateman to the opposing side and follows up only to be met by a hard elbow. Bateman explodes with multiple clotheslines that Ambrose keeps bouncing up from and then finally knocks Ambrose to the outside with a dropkick.
Byron Saxton: “Well look at that, Dustin! Bateman gains the upper hand on Ambrose!”

Ambrose crawls over to the corner and asks for a microphone. Ryback climbs into the ring and helps Ambrose to his feet.
Dean Ambrose: “Smart, Road Dogg… I gotta give you that. But now you have pissed off the wrong person. Welcome to your own personal nightmare!”
We cut to commercial break.
Byron Saxton: “We are back live ladies and gentlemen and you have got to wonder what in God’s name was Ambrose talking about.”
Dustin Rhodes: “Yeah, the guy seems a little unstable if you ask me.”
Byron Saxton: “Yeah, it seems that way, but up next we have the monstrous Big E Langston in action!”
The local wrestler in the ring seems to have a bit of size on him as he bounces on his feet awaiting Big E Langston. Langston’s music hits and he gets a rough reaction from the crowd. He jaws a bit to the fans as he makes his way down to the ring.

Byron Saxton: “Yeah, well… anyway I believe we have something going on backstage.”
Damien Sandow is in a nice designer suit exits a black limousine. He orders the driver to collect the bags and take them to his locker room when Road Dogg rushes up to him.
Road Dogg: “Glad I caught you Damien. I have also run down the others and tonight’s main event will be a rematch of last week’s tag match.
Sandow smiles at Road Dogg and continues to walk. The interviewer manages to catch up with Damien.
Interviewer: “Wow, Mr. Sandow a rematch from last week is sure to be exciting. Your thoughts?”
Damien Sandow: “Of course it’s going to be exciting when you have an elite athlete such as me headlining yet another show in his second week of competing.”
Interviewer: “Right, so –
Damien Sandow: “I didn’t say you could talk! Wrestlers, announcers and commoners all wonder what it takes to be limitless. All I can say is watch and learn. And maybe one day you to could be Limitless… You’re Welcome."
We cut to commercial.
When we return we are taken to a bonfire amongst the cornfields. A man in an Aloha styled shirt and white silk pants is preaching to a group of people.
Bray Wyatt: “It doesn’t take an idiot to see the world we live in. We are a society that has given itself away to monsters that make us believe what they want us to believe. Whether it is right or wrong, you people follow what these monsters lay out.
"Many moons ago there was another man who wanted to save us and in doing so he gave his life. Sure people say that he was only a one off, there will never be another like him but I have news for you people… I am here to wash your brains of this said evil! Don’t fear, ladies and gentlemen for Bray Wyatt has arrived… And I am forever!”
A tall man in a black singlet is revealed as Eli, escorts Bray Wyatt to a pickup truck. The people in the group all seem to be in a trance. Wyatt and Eli look at each other before they both laugh freakily.
Byron Saxton: “Well that was freaky, Dustin.”
