Previously on NXT, some people thought that they had what it takes to challenge NXT Champion Seth Rollins. Dusty Rhodes decided that since there were four men who think that they have a chance, they should meet in the ring and the one man who is left standing at the end of the night will be the man who gets their shot at the title. It is time for NXT, eef ya wheel.
