The episode was a taped show that was filmed at the WWE Performance Center last week.

NXT finished 25th on the cable charts with a 0.12 rating in the 18-49 demo, down 14.3 percent from last week. That matches NXT's second-lowest rating in the demo since February.

There was no major sports competition on the night for the first time in months, though cable news was up from normal.

NXT also matched a record low with women 18-49 with a 0.05 rating, down 54.6 percent from last week. Men 18-49 were actually up 5.6 percent or the overall drop would've been even more.
