SMASH AND GRAB CHALLENGE
Brodus Clay beat Derrick Bateman and Johnny Curtis to earn 2 immunity points: Matt reminded the remaining three rookies of the prize, a tag team title shot with their pro, and then brought up the first stupid challenge of the week, a smash and grab. The rookies put on blindfolds and swung at a piñata while their pro screamed at them. Johnny did a horrible job and his blindfold fell off half way through. Johnny put it back on and knocked it off but got nothing. Brodus Clay went next and knocked it down with one second and started picking up the money while Ricardo screamed at him in Spanish. Brodus picked it all up and did some push ups. Brodus got 4800 NXT dollars. Derrick Bateman went last and pulled it down with his hands so he got disqualified.
Brodus Clay w/Ricardo Rodriguez defeated R-Truth w/Johnny Curtis: Brodus managed to defeat R-Truth with a big splash.
SAVE YOURSELF TRIVIA CHALLENGE
Brodus Clay beat Derrick Bateman and Johnny Curtis to earn 3 immunity points: The rookies sat on stools under a bucket filled with stool (or something less disgusting). There was a jeopardy like trivia board and the rookies had to answer trivia questions. I won’t recap the questions because no one cares, but Brodus chose the 80s category at one point and the question asked what year SmackDown! debuted on TV (wtf?). Brodus ended up winning so Derrick and Johnny were covered in green slime.
NON (WWE UNITED STATES) TITLE MATCH
WWE United States champion Daniel Bryan defeated Derrick Bateman: Bryan won when Derrick tried for a LaBell lock but had it reversed into a LaBell lock, causing Derrick to tap out.
