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 happens on WWE’s third brand - 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!
- Bobby Roode walks into Full Sail with his belt, yelling at a lackey to speed it up, as we fade into the opening theme
- Drew McIntyre def. Sean Maluta via pinfall following Claymore
- Kayla Braxton catches McIntyre on the ramp to ask if he’s concerned about Wesley Blake’s attention. Drew says he’d be more upset if he didn’t have everyone in NXT’s attention. But if Blake wants to grab a piece of the spotlight, McIntyre will face him here next week.
- A recap of last week’s main event leads to the footage of SAnitY’s attack on Roderick Strong, and Roddy asking General Manager William Regal for a shot at Eric Young & company.
- EY’s outside with the crew. He wonders why Strong would ask for a showdown with SAnitY when he has a new baby at home and everything he wants in life. They don’t usually take requests, but Young will honor this one - they have a match at TakeOver: Chicago.
- Tom Phillips, Percy Watson & Nigel McGuiness discuss this Saturday night before kicking it to a video package reminding us of Hideo Itami’s debut on NXT when he took out The Ascension. The announce team comes back and runs down the rest of the card, transitioning to a video highlighting the UK title match between Tyler Bate & Pete Dunne.
- Teaser for the Velveteen Dream, then our next Itami video showing him hitting the Go 2 Sleep on Tyler Breeze in San Jose before WrestleMania 31
- Watson informs us that Regal has officially booked Strong vs. Young, then they hype the women’s title Triple Threat before kicking it to an interview with Asuka as she’s being driven to Full Sail. She blows off all the interviewers questions, then hams it up for the crowd waiting for her at the arena, but acts annoyed again once she’s out of view of the fans.
- Sonya Deville def. Lacey Evans via pinfall following a Shining Wizard
- Recap of Itami’s return to confront Roode and hit him with the GTS
- Kassius Ohno def. Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas via pinfall following two Rolling Elbows
- McIntyre vs. Blake and “Aleister Black in action” will air next week in an episode filmed before TakeOver in Chicago
- Another recap from last week of Itami’s win against Strong to earn the title shot
- Roode enters the ring to the strains of “Glorious Domination”. Everywhere he goes, everyone is talking about Hideo Itami and the GTS. The champ doesn’t get it... sure he’s knocked some people out, broken a few jaws. He can admit it, Itami knocked him out a few weeks back when he was minding his own business - in a $5000 custom made suit, he might add - and Hideo attacked him unprovoked. That will never happen again, though, because in Chicago, he won’t be standing around in a suit. He’ll be taped up and ready to go, and he’ll do to Itami what he’s done to everyone else - beat him, embarrass him and make an example of him. Roode makes fun of him being out injured so often, and says he didn’t even know Hideo was still employed here. He compares that to his run, elevating NXT to another level. Itami is going to have to go back to Japan and look his wife and kids in the eye and tell them he failed again - this time because of Bobby Roode.
- Hideo’s music hits, and he walks down the ramp glaring at Roode. Regal and several officials cut him off, and Itami makes like he’s going to leave, then slides into the ring. He takes down Roode before security pulls him off, but then he wipes them out and hits two of them with GTS-es. While he approaches the third, Roode attacks from behind, but Hideo turns the table and sends the champ to sleep again!
