We are almost up to the Royal Rumble and that is not likely to mean much around here. Aside from the fact that NXT does not tend to get a ton of representation in the Royal Rumble matches, it is hard to imagine anyone on this show getting s chance in the match. Maybe this week can be more of a full show, as last week’s was cut a little short. Let’s get to it.

Lash Legend vs. Fallon Henley

Henley is back and now she likes to dance. Legend powers her way out of an early waistlock to start so Henley goes after the arm. That earns her a hard shot to the face and something like a claw sends Henley into the corner. A belly to belly sets up a posing cover, followed by the chinlock to keep Henley in trouble. Legend sends her flying with a standing fall away slam but Henley is back up with a crossbody. That’s enough for Legend, who grabs her over the back torture rack to finish Henley at 4:27.

Result: Lash Legend b. Fallon Henley – Over the back torture rack (4:27)

Draco Anthony vs. Javier Bernal

This is Bernal’s debut and he grabs a headlock to start. That works so well that he does it again and then takes Anthony over. Anthony breaks it up with a belly to back suplex and we hit a seated armbar/chinlock. Bernal fights up again and hits some uppercuts, only to walk into a Rough Ryder to give Anthony the pin at 4:13.

Result: Draco Anthony b. Javier Bernal – Rough Ryder (4:13)

Here are Andre Chase and Bodhi Hayward for a chat. It’s time to add some hardware to their trophy case, because they’re going to win the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. They’ll start against the Grizzled Young Veterans and tonight’s preview is a TEACHABLE MOMENT! Cue the Grizzled Young Veterans to say Chase can’t teach them anything.

Bodhi Hayward vs. James Drake

Andre Chase and Zack Gibson are here too. Drake grabs a headlock to start but Hayward is back with a slam. Three straight splashes (ala the up downs exercise in football warmups) get two on Drake, who reverses a suplex into a chinlock. That’s broken up and Hayward hits some running shoulders to the knee but a Gibson distraction lets Drake kick him in the face for the pin at 4:36.

Result: James Drake b. Bodhi Hayward – Running corner dropkick (4:36)
