Johnny Gargano def. Elias Sampson via roll up pin
This was Sampson’s first loss in NXT and he didn’t appreciate it. He attacks Gargano outside the ring. After the beat down, Apollo Crews comes down and makes the save. With Apollo Crews not having an opponent at Takeover, my guess is Sampson. They match up well.
Finn Balor def. Rich Swann
On paper you would’ve thought this was a squash match but it was far from it. Rich Swann kept up with Balor and could be the one of many of the next shining stars of NXT. Balor looks focused as ever as countdown to his match with Samoa Joe is in less two weeks.
Alexa Bliss def. Sarah Dobson
(Remember Blake and Murphy?)
Bull Dempsey vs Danny Birch never took place. Samoa Joe took both men out with the Coquina Clutch. Message sent as Samoa Joe is set to take that NXT Title away from Finn Balor.
An awesome video package was shown showcasing Chad Gable and Jason Jordan’s short comings in their collegiate and amateur days as they look to take the NXT Tag Team Titles from The Revival.
Asuka def. Emma
Great idea to have these ladies close the show. Asuka is great, as usual. Emma continues to impress in these battles with Asuka. She proves she can go with the best.
NXT is hyping up another superstar of the future. I’m going to guess his name is Jose. This is all we know but I’m sure we’ll get more information after NXT Takeover.
