One week before the Season Finale of NXT, the twelfth week of NXT Season Two came to you from the Save Mart Center at Fresno State in Fresno, CA. One week before one of them is named the WWE’s next breakout star and receive a future title opportunity at a pay-per-view of their choosing, “The World Warrior” Kaval, the third-generation Michael McGillicutty, & “The Varsity Villain” Alex Riley would be looking to impress the WWE Pros and WWE fans into selecting them as the winner of NXT Season Two!
- "Dashing" Cody Rhodes def. MVP by pin following the Cross Rhodes.
The show kicks off with the introduction of the WWE Pros as Kofi Kingston, “The Long Island Iced Z” Zack Ryder, “Dashing” Cody Rhodes, the self-proclaimed “co-Women’s Champions” Layla & Michelle McCool, & “The Ballin’ Superstar” MVP take their seats on the stage! The three NXT finalists then take their spots as “The World Warrior” Kaval, the third-generation competitor Michael McGillicutty, & “The Varsity Villain” Alex Riley stand in the ring to deliver their thoughts on being a finalist in NXT Season Two! Michael McGillicutty was up first and McGillicutty stated that competing in the WWE is the “greatest job in the world” and it is the “greatest days” of his life and getting to compete in the same ring that his father, “Mr. Perfect” Curt Hennig, did makes it all “worth it”! Alex Riley is up and Riley states that he “expected” to be a finalist and that he is the “total package” because he “looks the part, walks the part, and talks the part” before warning WWE Champion Sheamus that, if he gets to his guaranteed title opportunity on pay-per-view, then Sheamus will be “dismissed”! Finally, Kaval was up and Kaval states that his celebration of becoming number one was ruined last week by Cody Rhodes because Rhodes’ Rookie was eliminated before stating that Rhodes should have done a better job of mentoring his Rookie! Kaval then states that Cody Rhodes did not earn his way into the WWE, he is there because of his father! Cody Rhodes responds by saying that Kaval believes in “booster seats” and “really bad promos” and a fired up Kaval responds by proclaiming that he is the “last of a dying breed” as he earned his way to where he is at before challenging Cody Rhodes to come into the ring! As he approaches the ring, Cody Rhodes calls Kaval the “gum” that he scrapes off the bottom of his boots and that Kaval is a Rookie while he is a Pro before walking back to the stage and saying his answer is “no”! Fellow WWE Pro MVP intervenes and asks Rhodes what is wrong with him for not accepting Kaval’s challenge and Rhodes responds by asking MVP if Kaval sleeps at the foot of MVP’s bed and calls Kaval’s Pros, LayCool, his “babysitters”! MVP responds by challenging Cody Rhodes to a one-on-one match, which Cody Rhodes accepts! Can MVP back up his standing up for Kaval by defeating Cody Rhodes?
One week before one of them becomes the WWE’s next breakout star, the three remaining Rookies, Kaval, Michael McGillicutty, & Alex Riley would compete in a WWE Trivia Challenge to test their knowledge of WWE history where questions answered correctly in the first round are worth 100 points and correct answers in the more difficult second round are worth 200 points! At the end of the WWE Trivia Challenge, it was Kaval scoring a total 700 points over Michael McGillicutty scoring a total of 500 points and Alex Riley scoring only 200 points! As the winner, Kaval earned a huge feature on WWE.com! Kaval is on the top of his game going into next week’s NXT Season Finale, but who will be the WWE’s next breakout star?
Then it was time for the main event as WWE Pros would face off as “The Ballin’ Superstar” MVP would go one-on-one with “Dashing” Cody Rhodes! At the end of a hard-fought match, it was Cody Rhodes hitting the Cross Rhodes on MVP en route to picking up the win!
