WWE.COM NXT REDEMPTION REPORT: REGALDEMPTION; A NEW LOOK FOR YOSHI TATSU BUT THE SAME TYPE OF MATCH WITH TYSON KIDD

By Richard Trionfo on 2011-09-06 22:47:41
We go back two weeks to start off tonight’s show with a look at Darren Young confronting Matt Striker at the start of the show. Young commented on how he has done against Matt Striker in the ring, but we saw someone else potentially throw his microphone into the ring. What will happen this week? Who replaces Todd Grisham tonight?

The introduction video with the theme song has eliminated all references to pros.

We are live on tape from Toledo, Ohio and your announcers are William ‘Tony Packo’s’ Regal and Jack ‘I only have to wear this dress because we are in Toledo’ Korpela.

Darren Young comes to the ring and he says that this is where he welcomes everyone to NXT Redemption. Darren says that he is not here to talk about Redemption. He is here to talk about how this is over. Darren says that he has already won because he is the best in the ring. Matt Striker would have been in the ring to talk about stupid challenges but based on the video, Striker won’t be here.

Darren says that he is out here to thank William Regal because last week, Darren could have gotten himself fined, suspended or fired if he did not come into the ring to save Striker.

Regal takes a mic and he enters the ring. He tells Darren that he believes that he has a future in the WWE, but Regal says that he has seen Darren take some liberties against the likes of Matt Striker. That isn’t the way to get ahead in the WWE.

Darren yells at Regal for talking to him that way because he invited him into the ring to thank him and Regal is stealing his spotlight.

Regal says that he doesn’t need a spotlight because people know who he is. Regal says that he is the diabolical Englishman who wears nice clothes and has beautiful hair and has committed more crimes in and out of the ring. Regal calls Darren ‘sunshine’ and says that he doesn’t have a clue.

Darren challenges Regal to a match so he can show William how much he knows.

Regal says that he is not doing this for anyone out here or Matt Striker because Darren needs to be taught a lesson. He is doing this for Darren.

We have a main event.

We have commercial.
