NXT is back in Winter Park, Florida for a show at their home base of Full Sail Live, where they'll tape matches and segments for their regular Wednesday night series on WWE Network.
Tonight’s show is the last announced taping before August's TakeOver: Back to Brooklyn event, so we’ll probably learn a lot about what that card will look like tonight. We’ll also get some more hints about which stars will be transitioning from NXT to Raw and SmackDown between next week’s draft and SummerSlam.
We’ll find out as the results start rolling in from Winter Park, Florida. We'll be updating those here live, starting at the scheduled 6:30PM Eastern bell time:
- Shinsuke Nakamura def. Blake Murphy. After, William Regal named him number one contender to Samoa Joe's NXT championship, making a match between the two for Takeover: Back to Brooklyn.
- Santana Garrett made her return, in an losing effort against Billie Kay.
- TM61 def. Rizen & Nailz.
- No Way Jose def. Steve Cutler before calling out Austin Aries.
- Kota Ibushi made his NXT debut in a match with Buddy Murphy. He won, of course.
- Samoa Joe came out for a promo saying he wouldn't face Shinsuke Nakamura at Takeover. He did eventually agree to the match, so it's on.
- Hideo Itami def. Meluta.
- Asuka def. Aliyah with the Asuka Lock and she wouldn't break it, so Bayley, who was on commentary, ran in to make the save.
- Bobby Roode showed up to say he will make NXT glorious.
- Revival def. TM61 with a DDT. They were then confronted by Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa, who apparently managed to get a "Pokemon" chant going before laying out the champs and standing tall with the tag titles.
- Mojo Rawley vs. Chris Atkins never happened because Samoa Joe ran everyone out.
- They did a contract signing for Bayley vs. Asuka at NXT Takeover: Back to Brooklyn.
- The Authors of Pain def. Rizen & Nailz before TM61 ran in on them. They were also beaten down. Ultimately, American Alpha made the save to a big reaction.
- Andrade Almas def. Angelo Dawkins before Bobby Roode showed up to challenge him to a match at Takeover: Back to Brooklyn, and it's on.
- Billie Kay def. Liv Morgan.
- Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa def. Patrick Clark and Tucker Knight. That would be Clark from Tough Enough making his debut.
- Hideo Itami def. Mustafa Ali.
- Daria Barento & Mandy Rose & Alexa Bliss vs. Carmella & Liv Morgan & Nikki Glenncross. That would be the debut for Daria, Mandy, and Nikki. Carmella submitted Mandy to give the good gals the win.
- Samoa Joe def. Mojo Rawley. Shinsuke Nakamura came out and taunted Joe, who was being held back. They didn't go at it, but Joe did destroy security to end the taping.
