** Mods I forgot to add the icon, could you please? **

From Winter Park, FL.
I'm going to blatantly rip-off the brilliant "Abridged" format (thanks to cmigbear over on Cageside Seats) for the recap since that's a lot less typing.

Tye Dillinger v Eric Young
SANITY enters. ERIC sends the crew back.
TYE: Yeah baby finally one on one.
ERIC: j/k
SANITY: Look what we found.
near-death RODDY enters. JOSE enters.
JOSE and TYE beat up on SANITY.
JOSE and TYE: We're getting it done!
SANITY: lol numbers game!
SANITY destroy TYE and JOSE.

BACKSTAGE
BILLIE and PEYTON: We're the iconic duo, and we have this award, and we're gonna rub it in everyone's face and put it on display in the Performance Center.
EMBER working out.
BILLIE and PEYTON: Working out when you don't need to! What a scrublord.
EMBER: I'm gonna kick your ass.
BILLIE and PEYTON: We'll see about that.

VIGNETTE
ALEISTER BLACK: I have a beard and tattoos and I'm dark and stuff and I will end you. Get it? *END* you? Okay.

Andrade Almas v Ho Ho Lun
NXT Universe: Oh Ho Ho you're so dead.
ALMAS: I'm prettier than all of you. I am EL IDOLO!
HO HO: Rollup!
ALMAS: Oh no you didn't.
ALMAS kicks HO HO's ass.
PERCY: HOW CAN HE CALL HIMSELF AN IDOL?!!?
NIGEL: You literally built your entire character on calling yourself Showtime.
PERCY:...
HO HO: I have offensive maneuvers too!
ALMAS: That's cute.
ALMAS: Hammerlock DDT.
ALMAS kills HO HO.

Billie Kay v Ember Moon
TOM: William Regal is watching this match to determine the next victim challenger for Asuka.
BILLIE and PEYTON: We're the best of friends!
EMBER: Eat a dropkick.
PEYTON: Distraction!
EMBER gets distracted.
BILLIE: Eat Defeat and pin?
EMBER: You're not Gail Kim, so no.
BILLIE: Punchy-kicks!
EMBER: Enough.
EMBER kicks BILLIE's ass.
EMBER: Eclipse!
BILLIE: ded.
TOM, PERCY, NIGEL: That Eclipse sure is a dangerous move!

The Revival v The Ealy Brothers
NXT Universe: The Revival and the who again?
OUTTANOWHERE: AUTHORS OF PAIN
EALY # 1: Oh hello Authors of P---
AUTHORS OF PAIN destroy EALY #1.
REVIVAL: Goodbye.
AUTHORS OF PAIN destroy EALY #2.
REVIVAL: Have fun with that.
PAUL ELLERING: *stern look intensifies*

BACKSTAGE
WILLIAM REGAL: Ember you will face Asuka at TakeOver.
EMBER: A new phase will start.
NXT UNIVERSE: Why in the blue hell are you smiling?!

TAPED EARLIER
OHNO: I'm gonna win the title because I've never doubted myself the way I doubted myself in NXT, and this is cool and also surreal, and when I win at WM weekend, all the doubt will be gone.
TOM: k.
SEPARATELY,
ROODE: NXT deserves a champion who looks like me, not like a hobo who stepped out of the 70s, and I will continue to make NXT Glorious(tm), and also you suck Tom.
TOM: k.

TJ Perkins v Shinsuke Nakamura
TJP: I'mma kick at your injured knee.
NAK: Nah, I'mma block.
TJP: Leglock! DAB!
NXT UNIVERSE: That never ends well.
NAK: I have my own taunt!
They go back and forth.
NAK: Have a big kick.
TJP: Nope.
NAK: Ow my injured knee.
TJP beats up on NAK for a bit.
NAK: I'mma slap my knee to get feeling back into it.
NAK: Have a running knee.
TJP: Nope.
TJP: I'mma fuck up your knee.
NAK: Ouch.
TJP: Kneebar! Surely you will submit now.
NAK: Do you know who I am?!
NXT UNIVERSE: Yeah really TJ.
NAK makes the comeback.
GHOST OF GRAVES: KINSHAAASAAAA!
NAK kills TJP.
TJP: ded.

Middling NXT episode, but it moves things forward.

This felt like a lot of show packed into an hour.

This probably bothers me a lot more than it should, but Billie Kay's ring gear is, IMO, the most unflattering of anyone on any of the roster. She's 27, but it feels like the velvet adds on a good ten years.

Thanks for the recap. I was late watching the show this week, so this really helped.

As for the show itself, well, it was a one-match show, but it was a pretty solid match. Would love to see TJP and Nakamura get another chance in front of a better crowd. I'm not sure what kind of crowd goes to an NXT show and can't get fired up for TJP vs. Nakamura. Also, I continue to be into Ohno, who is incredibly well-spoken and genuine in his promos. I hope they've figured out whatever the problem was the last time he left the company, because I'd love to see him succeed this time.

I remember reading at the time that he was asked to lose weight and was unable/unwilling to do it, which eventually led to him being let go. If that was the issue then, I don't know what's changed, because the former Chris Hero didn't look to be particularly slimmer this time around.

I actually went the other way on that promo - where you saw genuine, I thought he came off as too vanilla. It's hard to explain, I think I wanted him to sound more pro wrestler and less normal person, but looking back at it, I can totally understand how his style could be very endearing.

I think the story is it was less about the weight itself, but more that he wasn't following the rules (that would've including working on the weight) and WWE NXT management were eager to make an example out of a big name as a warning shot to others, current and future. That was during the DeMott days, and Ohno being back probably should be read as a sign of WWE's attitude changing more than his own.

Some of you have probobly read that Matt Hardy is on the advertized card of future Smackdown house shows. Which makes the big match kind of anticlimatic.
