Comedy Part 536: I Scream Showcase

Location:  I Scream Cakes
Emcee:  Angel Kircher
After:  Bill Boll
Before:  Micaela Mohr

Angel invited me to perform at this show...I haven't done enough comedy lately and I need to get out more in general.  Considering my awkward performance last week led to someone asking me if it was my first time hosting...yeah, I needed to work the kinks out of my newer jokes.  I hadn't done a longer set in a while and this was a good test for me...my set lasted about ten minutes and I feel like I did well.  It's nice to be able to pace myself with a longer time period to perform...thanks to Angel for inviting me to appear on her show.

NXT + Superstars

WWE NXT

-Commentators:  Rich Brennan, Jason Albert, & Corey Graves.
-Adrian Neville started the show by admitting that the better man won in his title match with Sami Zayn last week.  He said it should be the next NXT Champion kicking off the show, but Zayn is still injured thanks to Kevin Owens.  Owens made his entrance and said that Neville's opinion was irrelevant to him...he cared about being in that arena and being the reason why Zayn was NOT in the arena.  Owens said that if Neville wanted a fight, he had one...so that set up the main event for the night.
-Backstage:  Devin Taylor interviewed Becky Lynch about her issues with Bayley...Sasha Banks opened her eyes and now she's focused on winning.
-Backstage:  Tyler Breeze informed us that he's taking a vacation from NXT to do some overseas modeling...

William Regal met with The Vaudevillains("The Artiste" Aiden English & Simon Gotch); they claimed the illegal man was pinned in last week's NXT Tag Team Title match against The Lucha Dragons(Sin Cara & Kalisto).  Regal granted them a rematch, but tonight's show is booked solid so it'll happen in a few weeks.
-Bull Dempsey d. Jesus DeLeon after the swandive headbutt (1:12).  Dempsey and Baron Corbin crossed paths in the aisleway again...
-Baron Corbin d. Rob Ryzin with the End Of Days(short-arm Blackhole Slam into a mid-air Flatliner) (0:12).  Dempsey watched the match and shoved Corbin before walking away from him.
-The Ascension(Konnor O'Brian & Rick Viktor) d. Enzo Amore & "Big Cass" Colin Cassady(w/ Carmella Van Damme) when Viktor pinned Enzo after an STO (1:01).  Afterwards, Konnor & Viktor vowed that their war with Hideo Itami & Finn B├ílor was far from over...
-"The Man That Gravity Forgot" Adrian Neville fought Kevin Owens to a double countout; Neville did a twisting somersault plancha onto Owens, but Owens rammed him into the ringpost before either man could beat the count (11:45 aired).  Owens powerbombed Neville into the ring apron after the match was over.
