WWE NXT taping

Report by Dot Net reader Bryan Houghtling, Jr.
It was a good night. When I arrived to Full Sail last night there where signs stating the show was sold-out.n around 6:15 we were all inside. It was not very organized compared to normal WWE shows. They started off by announcing that tonight would start the tag team title tournament. The show started with two dark matches.
1. Antonio Cesaro defeated Justin Gabriel
2. Natalya defeated Emma
NXT Show One
1. The Wyatt Family defeated Yoshi Tatsu and Percy Watson in a first round tag tournament match.
2. Sashsa Banks defeated Alicia Fox.
3. Corey Graves defeated Jake Carter. After the match Graves called out Alex Riley and declared anarchy against NXT.
4. Oliver Grey and Adrian Neville (a/k/a PAC) defeated 3MB (Heath Slater and Drew McIntyre).
NXT Show Two
1. Big E Langston destroyed Axl Keegan. After the match, Connor O'Brian cut a promo telling Big E that he will be the next NXT champion.

2. Connor O'Brian defeated Mike Dalton.
3. Xavier Woods defeated El Locale (aka Ricardo Rodriguez in a mask and bodysuit).
4. The Wyatt Family defeated Bo Dallas and Michael Mcgillicutty in a tag tournament semifinal match. After the match, Bray Wyatt attempted to get Bo to join him. Bo refused and was distracted by The Wyatt Family. Bray then attacked Bo from behind and left Bo and Mcgillicutty in the ring.
Byron Saxton announced that the finals of the tournament and the NXT Title match between Connor O'Brian and Big E will be at the next tapings on January 31.
Then the moment that everyone was waiting for. Byron Saxton announced HBK!!!Shawn Michaels told the audience thank you very much for everything and that he watch the entire show and loves the fact that the future of the WWE is very safe. Chants of Triple H started next. Shawn said that Hunter is like his father in law and would not come out of the back.
A moment later Triple H's music hit. The DX chant filled the building. Triple H then immediately walked back into the back. Ten seconds later the DX music hit. Hunter came back to the ring and the fans chanted for Kevin Nash next.
Kevin Nash's music then hit. Nash said he was so happy to be an honorary member of DX tonight. Chants for The Kliq started next. Next out came X-Pac and Billy Gunn. Full Sail live was at a fever pitch.
Damien Sandow came out and asked for an apology for what happened at the Raw 1000 show. They all apologized to Damien and then Triple H asked him to do that awesome cartwheel he does. Damien goes for it and took a super kick for his troubles. DX celebrated in the ring for a few minutes and the crowd thanked everyone.
This was my first show at Full Sail but a very good one will definitely go back on the 31st. The crowd was pretty hot throughout the night and blew the roof off when DX arrived.
