Since it was the first time that NXT held a live event outside of Florida, WWE decided to send a couple of their stars to help draw in the audience. The plan seemingly backfired. While the two of them worked what was said to be an above average match, the audience really laid into Big Show and Ryback. Some of the chants suggested that Show enter early retirement. Others chanted that The Big Guy was overly repetitive in the ring.

Through social media, Ryback revealed to fans that he was denied entry to a WWE live event in his hometown of Las Vegas over the weekend. He also stated that he purchased a ticket, yet was not allowed in. For clarification, this is simply a matter of him portraying his character and preserving the story line of him being fired by The Authority. The Big Guy is expected back on television soon. He is also scheduled for the Royal Rumble.
