Shawn Michaels made his entrance and held the NXT Championship. He said people ask if he'll ever stop enjoying retirement. He said he's fat, out of shape, and doesn't have to adhere to the dress code. Michaels was thrown off when the fans chanted "HB-Shizzle" at him. He said they need to get that t-shirt made. He admitted he was thrown off by the fans. He said he knew about ladder matches, then said he had to hurry, an then pushed his DVD and gave a brief pitch for the main event… 

5. Bo Dallas vs. Adrian Neville in a ladder match for the NXT Championship. Phillips hyped that Dallas has been the NXT Champion for 260 days. Neville and Dallas had a staredown with the title belt hanging between them during intros. Once the match started, Dallas tried to flee, but Neville went right after him. Neville performed a series of gymnast flips across the ring in an impressive early display of his athleticism.

Dallas went on the offensive for a bit, but Neville came back with a great dive over the top rope and onto Dallas on the floor. Dallas came back with a ladder shot. Later, Neville performed a cool tornado DDT by running the ladder and then performing it off the top rope. A short time later, Neville took a hard shot to the head when the ladder bounced on him. The referee checked on him and the match continued. 

Regal said he couldn't help but root for his fellow countryman and rooted out loud for Neville as he was setting up a ladder at 11:50. Dallas was there to meet him on the other side. Dallas got the better of the exchange and tried to whip Neville to the floor, but he stopped on the ring apron and caught Dallas with a kick. Neville went to the top rope, but Dallas recovered enough to throw him to the floor.

Dallas crawled to the ladder and started to climb from the bottom when suddenly Neville springboarded over him and onto the ladder. However, Dallas grabbed him and threw him down to the mat. Dallas grabbed the ladder and tried to use it as a weapon, but Neville kicked it into him and then slammed him onto it. Neville went to the top rope and performed the Red Arrow on Dallas, who was still on top of the ladder. The fans responded with a loud NXT chant.

Dallas rolled to the floor and Neville scrambled to set up a ladder. The fans chanted Yes! as Neville climbed the ladder. Dallas scrambled and got back inside the ring and started to climb, but Neville pulled the title down to win the match and the championship. A dejected Dallas fell to the mat once Neville pulled the title down… 

Adrian Neville defeated Bo Dallas in a ladder match in 15:45 to win the NXT Championship.

After the match, Neville sat on top of the ladder with the championship in hand as smoke/fog machines shot off on each side of him. Cool visual. The announcers recapped the match as highlights were shown. Back live, Neville continued to celebrate as Phillips said Neville was the fourth ever NXT Champion. 

John Cena was shown clapping in the crowd and the show ended.
