I can confirm No Way Jose is as embarrassing live as on TV. #NXTBournemouth— David P Campion (@dpcampion) June 16, 2016
Of course, we seem to be in the minority:

Everyone loved Baymella, of course, but Nia & Alexa have come up for a name for themselves, too. It’s the usual awkwardness of Facebook Q & A, but watch Team Rude’s video if you want to be charmed by them:

Aries reportedly delivered a heel promo before his match with Almas, not that that’s exactly news, but with people paying attention to Cien (and Dillinger)’s alignment these days, thought it worth mentioning.
So much for concerns that Scott Dawson was injured, as Revival/AA and Nakamura/Roode were pretty universally touted as match of the night. I’m giving the nod to the tag champs for some quality banter:
Revival vs American Alpha— John L (@sarcasmisaverb) June 16, 2016
Crowd: Which one are you?
Dash: I'm the one who pinned Jordon at Takeover!
Changed things up in the main event, where the champ was DQ-ed for using a steel chair. Finn, of course, got his heat back and closed the show with a “We are NXT” message for the fans.
