Tag Team Championship Number One Contendership match 
 - Kassius Ohno and Corey Graves vs Scott Dawson and Garrett Dylan w/ Sylvester LeFort  
Graves won the match for his team by making Dylan submit to the 13th Step. 
Afterwards, the Wyatt Family attacked Ohno and Graves. Neville ran out to help but he was jumped by Dylan and Dawson. The five of them worked over everyone until William Regal made the save. However, Regal couldn't overcome their numbers either and was beaten down to end the episode. 

Post-Taping Segment: 
 - Ryback cut a promo initially putting over NXT. He got the crowd to chant Feed Me More, then said how easy it was to manipulate everyone. He talked about how he should be WWE Champion right now and will be after Payback. He then repeated half of his promo from Raw. Afterward, he put out an open challenge to anyone in the back. Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady came out to answer the challenge. They played off the crowd for a long time while making fun of Ryback. Ryback responded saying "You're mom and dad, who are clearly brother and sister, must clearly be proud of you two." Ryback laid Cassady out, leading Amore to try and fast talk his way out of a beating. It failed.

 - Zayn-Cesaro 2 and the six man tag match are well worth going out of your way to see. Really good stuff. Zayn-Cesaro 2 in particular was especially intense.
 - Tom Phillips and Brad Maddox did commentary for episode 1 and 3 while Regal and Tony Dawson handled 2 and 4.
 - The next taping is June 20 with Sheamus as the special guest.
 - It appears they may have turned Kruger face.
 - Axl Keegan was renamed to Mickie Keegan. Likely due to the Curtis Axel rename.
 - Dawson and Dylan remind me of an old 80s NWA tag team with their look and the way they work.
