Dusty Rhodes came out on stage to give a "State of the Union" address for NXT. He said that Vickie Guerrero has no jurisdiction here and that her bounty on Big E Langston was off. He ended his tirade on her by calling her a bitch; to which he quickly apologized and said "sometimes that old cowboy comes out in me". Camacho interrupted Rhodes to say that due to Hunico being “down in Mexico”, he needs the money from Langston’s bounty. Camacho said that either the bounty on Langston stays or he is going to put one out for Rhodes instead. Langston then came out, which led to Rhodes making a handicap match of Camacho and a partner vs Langston for the next episode.

The next taping will be Thursday, December 6. They didn’t announce who the WWE Superstar guest will be.
Michael McGillicutty seems like he is now a face now.
I am still unsure of what the official name for Paige’s new finisher is. However, before the tapings start they always air a recap video of the last taping. I think I heard JR call the move the “Paige Turner”. I’m going to use that for its name, unless I find out it is called something else.
There was a hilarious moment where Jinder Mahal's old music hit and he stared to make his way out. Then it stopped, he smiled and moon walked back behind the curtain. Then the 3MB music hit and he made his "proper" entrance.
