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!

- Trainer won't clear Samoa Joe (watch it here)

- Tye Dillinger def. Buddy Murphy via pinfall following a Tie-Breaker

- Video recap of DIY's loss in Brooklyn and Johnny Gargano's loss in the CWC leads to an interview with Tommaso Ciampa about his condition. The Revival jumps him, kicking his ass all the way through the announce area and into the ring. While Scott Dawson cuts a promo, Ciampa crawls back into the ring, which leads to him taking a Shatter Machine.

- Steve Cutler (complete with cutaway promo during his entrance) def. Kenneth Crawford via pinfall following a Fisherman's Michinoku Driver

- Hideo Itami tells Dasha Fuentes he's disappointed in Austin Aries, and if he doesn't want to feel pain like the one in his ruptured eardrum, A-Double should stay out of Itami's ring or he'll go back to sleep

- Look back to Nakamura/Zayn in Dallas; a new Sanity vignette; TM61 promo video

- No Way Jose def. Angelo Dawkins via pinfall following a Full-Nelson Slam

- Andrade "Cien" Almas is talking to Charly Caruso about his loss in Brooklyn, but he's cut off by Aries. He talks trash about "sockless loafer boy" Itami and Almas says he wants to face him next week, but A-Double claims that was in his bad ear, so he couldn't hear him.

- Liv Morgan def. Aliyah via pinfall following a head kick

- Dasha catches up with Jose, who talks about getting a fresh start tonight. Bobby Roode walks by, looks him up and down, says "nice head" and keeps walking.

- Shinsuke Nakamura enters to huge applause. The new champ talks about coming to NXT to face the best and challenge himself. Nak puts over Joe and how tough their battle was, but says his era is over. This is the era of Strong Style... YEA-OH!
