WWE NXT 5-15-13: Conor O’Brian Conquers Two Men

On this edition of NXT, Natalya Neidhart went one-on-one with Summer Rae. Towards the end of the match, Paige came out and jumped up on the ring apron. While Natalya was attempting to lock Summer in her signature submission hold “The Sharpshooter”, Summer kicks Natalya away and Natalya inadvertently ends up bumping into Paige, knocking her off the apron. Summer then takes advantage and rolls up Natalya and pins her to get the upset. Summer, however, did not have time to celebrate her victory as Paige was hot on her heels heading backstage.

After the match, Sandow issued an open challenge to NXT Champion Big E Langston for his championship. Later on, the challenge was accepted and Big E will defend against Sandow next week on NXT.

After Paige defeated Bayley, Summer Rae came out and jumped Paige from behind in a hit-and-run attack. A little later on, while Renee Young was interviewing Natalya Neidhart, Summer Rae interrupts. Natalya then issues an open challenge to Summer for a match next week on NXT, which Summer accepts. Also, Briley Pierce went one-on-one with Mr. Sakamoto. I am not a fan of either one of these guys and wasn’t sure who to root against in this one. In the end, it didn’t really matter because during the match, Conor O’Brian comes out and attacks and lays out both men. Shortly after, during a backstage interview with Renee Young, both Pierce and Sakamoto …
