WWE NXT results, live open thread for Jan. 21, 2015: #1 contender tournament begins!

Here's a place to check results and comment along with the latest airing of WWE NXT in its new Wednesday night at 8PM Eastern time slot on WWE Network (the schedule indicates that WWE Network is doing away with the afternoon airing of NXT with the move to Wednesday, so 8PM will be the first time anyone gets to see the televised version of the show).

Check out our Wednesday morning preview post to get caught up on what happened last week, and what we expect this week.

We'll post match results here, and we'll also have our regular reactions post later. In the meantime, and most importantly, this gives you Cagesiders a dedicated place to rave and/or bitch about whatever goes down on the best show WWE produces on a weekly basis - as it airs!

NOTE: Spoilers are out there for these pre-taped broadcasts, but yours truly and many of our regulars don't partake.  If you are going to post or discuss spoilers for this show before they happen, or results of future shows, please use the spoiler bar in your comment.

Enjoy the show!
