WWE NXT live results (July 27, 2016): #1 contenders named

Here's a place to check results and comment along with the latest airing of WWE NXT in its regular Wednesday night at 8PM Eastern time slot on WWE Network.

Check out our Wednesday morning preview post to get caught up on what's been happening, and what we expect this week.

We'll post match results here, and we will 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 - during its initial broadcast!

NOTE: Spoilers are out there for these pre-taped broadcasts (including here), but many Cagesiders 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!

- Facebook Live video from earlier today is shown with Blake & Murphy arguing about who bailed on who, was more responsible for their success as a team and who would beat the Japanese guy who was in the 2015 Match of the Year they're facing tonight

- Shinsuke Nakamura def. Wesley Blake via pinfall following Kinshasa

- General Manager William Regal comes out to announce Nakamura gets a shot at Samoa Joe for the NXT title at TakeOver

- Billie Kay def. Santana Garrett via pinfall following a Big Boot

- Quick highlight of Bayley at Battleground, followed by her asking Regal for her rematch against Asuka for Brooklyn. The GM says he'll speak to the Women's champ and draw up the contract if she doesn't object.

- TM61 def. Ryzin & Nails via pinfall following Thunder Valley

- Recap of No Way Jose & Austin Aries issues, followed by a teaser for Hideo Itami's return next week

- No Way Jose def. Steve Cutler via pinfall following a Half-Nelson Slam

- Kota Ibushi def. Buddy Murphy via pinfall following a Last Ride powerbomb

- Charly Carusa asks/informs Joe of his title defense in Brooklyn, who says he's going to talk to Regal and "fix this right now"

- Bobby Roode will be here next week

- The champ enters the arena, and says he won't face Shinsuke because he's "undeserving". Regal walks on stage, they argue and Joe eventually relents when threatened with having to forfeit the belt. He makes a veiled threat about taking Nakamura out before Brooklyn "if he sees him", which brings out the #1 contender to mock the champ from the stage while Joe seethes.
