Obstacle Course Challenge:
Titus motored through that obstacle course and still had the slowest time of anyone who actually did the course (yeah Lucky Cannon, you're real stupid). Kudos to Darren Young for winning that. That was actually exciting.

NXT Thoughts:
This season of NXT is titled "Redemption," as six past NXT rookies get one more shot to be the WWE's next breakout star. I don't get why the winner of this season gets to be on season six. It makes no sense and frankly just tells me how much this show has gone down the toilet. "Congratulations! You've won a seat in next season's show!" To have this as a prize is a far cry from that championship match promised to the winner of Seasons 1 and 2. Heck, even the tag title match promised to last season's winner (Johnny Curtis) is still a decent prize.

What the heck are Redemption Points? Yeah, make it confusing.

I like Regal on commentary, I'll say that much. Maryse co-hosting, not sold on that.
