This week’s episode of NXT was a taped show, which allowed WWE to remove errors before it aired on the USA Network.
The pre-taped nature of the shows also allows them to let wrestlers do high-risk moves out of the ring without the risk of serious injury. There were several edits made during the WrestleMania tapings, including Ladder Match for a spot that featured wrestlers falling off a ladder to the floor.
Some of the edits are more obvious than others, including one from last night’s episode of NXT. As you can see below, Velveteen attempted a frog splash the top rope onto Adam Cole. There was a camera edit and somehow Dream landed with an elbow to Cole’s chest.
In reality, it looks like what happened was that they had Dream frog splash a crash pad and then they filmed the second part where he lands with his elbow.

Although it has yet to be announced, it’s looking like Dream will challenge Cole for the NXT Championship at NXT TakeOver: In Your House on Sunday, June 7. The only match officially announced for the show at this point is Karrion Kross vs. Tommaso Ciampa.
