Welcome to the Fightful.com live coverage for tonight's episode of WWE NXT! Tonight is set to be a good show as we get the Full Sail University debut of Bobby Roode against No Way Jose and much more so be sure to come back here at 8PM EST!
-We open with Samoa Joe coming out to the ring. Joe says that when you experience a loss, it makes you reflect and see what you've turned into. He says that all the ridicule from the fans is deserved; saying he doesn't regret it; seemingly turning face. He says that NXT is the best and he asks Shinsuke to come out so he can say something to his face. Shinsuke comes out and Joe says that he meant everything he said before their match. Joe reiterates that he was an undeserving contender, but says he is deserving and a worthy champion. Joe says as soon as he's cleared he wants a rematch. Shinsuke says that he accepts as Joe goes to leave, but then turns and offers his hand. They shake hands then Joe leaves then comes back and beats the hell out of Shinsuke on the ramp then they do a 5 minute bit where they cart Shinsuke out on a stretcher as we go to commercial.
They recap what happened as we come back. Regal goes to confront Joe, but he speeds away in his car.
