Time for some NXT. This week’s episode starts with a video package detailing Hideo Itami’s quest for respect and how it led to him butting heads with Kassius Ohno. These two will collide in a No DQ match tonight!

We get the opening video and then it’s off to Full Sail for wrestling action. Mauro Ranallo, Nigel McGuinness and Percy Watson are calling the action.

“Ruuuby. Ruuuuby. Come out and play…”

Ruby Riot comes out to play. She and Nikki Cross head to the ring and have a stare down before they get down to the business at hand and start brawling.

Cross looks like she’s bleeding from the arm. Riot and Cross keep breaking free and brawling. Eventually the officials get things under control and they drag Nikki Cross to the back.

Welcome to NXT!
