TONIGHT - the semifinals of the GOLD RUSH TOURNAMENT to crown the NXT Champion! In our main event, SETH ROLLINS takes on MICHAEL McGILLICUTTY! The other semifinal: JINDER MAHAL vs. RICHIE STEAMBOAT! ALSO TONIGHT: HEATH SLATER foolishly makes another open challenge THE ASCENSION meet THE USOS BRADLEY PIERCE talks to LEO KRUGER MATT STRIKER talks to HUNICO & CAMACHO AND a special word from RAQUEL DIAZ! BYRON SAXTON & WILLIAM REGAL (and sometimes JIM ROSS) call the action.

Batista/Punk would be a new dynamic with this version of CM Punk. Tailor made for months of "heh heh, I'm gonna BREAK you -- in HALF" / "oops I lost. rematch!" And their matches were surprisingly good.
