After a week to look back at the Full Sail incarnation of NXT, it is time for some new matches to start off 2013.

We are at Full Sail University and your announcers are . . .

Before we know who is at the announce table this week, The Shield has attacked the two men in the ring and there is pandemonium in the NXT Arena. They continue their assault while the bell rings to get someone to the ring.

NXT General Manager Dusty Rhodes comes out and Dean Ambrose tells him that what he just saw was a taste of what the Shield is capable of. They have caused more waves and shattered more glass ceilings in a short time than anyone else in the business. It is in the name of justice and righting wrongs.

Seth says that they have taken over Raw and Smackdown. They are taking over NXT and there is not a damn thing that anyone can do about it.

Dusty tells them that they should make an impact, but not the way they did. They crowned Seth as the first NXT champion and the person to lead NXT to the Promised land. He has chosen another path. Seth will have a match tonight. He will defend the title against Corey Graves.

Dean tells Dusty that not him, not anybody tells him what to do.

Dusty tells them what they will do in his building. If Seth does not defend the title, he will strip Seth of the title. Dusty tells them to get out of his ring.

Seth tells Dusty that he is right. Corey Graves is a wrong they can right. He will defend the title against Corey. He tells Dusty to be careful what he wishes for.

Roman tells Dusty that it looks like he is paying the Shield rent if he thinks it is his house.
