WWE NXT will be taping several weeks of TV tonight at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida tonight. Suffice to say, I think Samoa Joe will be there. Tonight's taping is sold out in advance.

Not to be lost in the excitement over Samoa Joe's debut, everyone reading this needs to go out of their way to see Sasha Banks vs. Becky Lynch. It was as great a match as anything we've seen in 2015 in any company. Kudos to them for their excellent work. Finn Balor vs. Tyler Breeze was also excellent.

Triple H held a meeting with the NXT crew after the show and praised them for being able to "keep a secret" in regard to Samoa Joe's debut not leaking online ahead of time. He was really proud of his crew last night and he should have been.

The belief among those I've spoken to is that Sami Zayn will be having surgery on his rotator cuff and the ending of NXT last night was designed to write him out of the storylines while putting additional heat on Kevin Owens. The injury is something that has been haunting him since his final appearance in Ring of Honor several years ago I am told.

Cable sent word that on the Periscope App, Tyler Breeze’s entrance last night peaked at 1,275.

NXT's merchandise truck were selling the Becky Lynch goggles at the end of the show last night.

Andrew Twiss noted in his excellent live notes last night that Cesaro was also there.
