AVClub: In case you were wondering, this week’s episode of NXT was filmed before this past Saturday’s Beast In The East WWE special. How can I tell? Well, most of this episode is pre-taped footage added to NXT as opposed to pre-taped footage that is a part of NXT. This episode was filmed before Finn Balor became NXT Champion—note the lack of Kevin Owens or Finn Balor in Full Sail—and for that, NXT tries to buy time by having the Beast In The East match for the NXT Championship air in its entirety (with commercial breaks that are unnecessary on a network you completely own). As great as it is to relive Owens versus Balor again (and if you haven’t watched it or the special as a whole, please do—even Kane’s match), that match is something special from something else. It’s not indicative of the quality of the episode, because it’s not even really a part of the episode.
