– WWE NXT Results – 3/5/15: Sasha Banks vs. Charlotte
The show kicked off with Alex Riley confronting William Regal and demands a match with Kevin Owens due to being assaulted by him last week. Regal says he will only make the match if Riley gives up his commentator duties. Riley says that’s not fair because he has seen Regal wear both hats simultaneously.
Regal reminds Riley that when he did commentary and wrestled at the same time, Cesaro made him pay for it when they locked horns. Riley says he is still in the prime of his career, but Regal tells him the immense amount of preparation for both jobs is too much and that Riley will have to decided which one he wants more.

Rose comes off the ropes and Breeze catches him with the Beauty Shot out of nowhere for the pinfall.
Winner: Tyler Breeze
