Non-Title Tag Team Match: The Ealy Brothers vs. Authors of Pain w. Paul Ellering (c)
Earlier today, the Ealy Bros get a chance to talk up their match, saying blood is thicker than whatever keeps the AOP together. AOP refers to the Authors of Pain, nXt’s Tag Team Champions and, last week, they attacked Gabriel and Uriel Ealy before they could start their match against The Revival.
The match starts with Rezar and Gabriel. Gabriel starts fast, pushing Rezar towards his corner. He tags Uriel in and the two men whip Rezar into the turnbuckle. Uriel goes off the ropes and kicks a bent over Rezar in the head. He bounces off again and Rezar replies with a vicious clothesline. Akam tags himself in. The two men each pick up an Ealy brother on their shoulders, meet in the centre of the ring and hit the Super Collider (simultaneous powerbombs). Final Chapter follows. 1-2-3.
Winners: Authors of Pain via pinfall in 2 minutes
Post- match, manager Paul Ellering says The Revival are the next name in his book. They may claim to be the best tag team in the world but the Authors of Pain have been created for tag team greatness. They are a team of destiny who will soon be a destiny.
Just then, Team #DIY’s music hits and out come Gargano and Ciampa. The two of them aren’t sure what algorithm means, but what everyone should know, including the nXt fans, is that if there’s a team who will beat the Authors, it’s #DIY. The Revival saved the Authors and if it wasn’t for them, #DIY would be the Tag Champs for the second time. They want a fair tag team championship rematch.
Now that brings out The Revival. Dash and Dawson ask how the Authors feel after receiving a Shatter Machine. Dawson says they never should have lost the nXt Tag Team Championships. They equate themselves to Tom Brady and Michael Jordan and say they do not watch from the sidelines. The Revival are the MVPs of the tag team division. Reality check to Paul Ellering, they are the greatest tag team of all time.
nXt General Manager William Regal arrives on stage to try and solve this dilemma where 3 teams are all deserving of a match. Regal asks what he should do. He says he will book a triple threat elimination tag match for Takeover: Orlando.
One cool point for the Authors who asserted their dominance over a rookie team, yet again. The post-match meeting of the 3 top teams was well-executed and, naturally, fans are excited for this match. It could steal the show at Takeover: Orlando.
Coming Up:nXt Championship match: Bobby Roode (c) vs. Kassius Ohno
Promo: A brief promo for the new tag team, Heavy Machinery is shown. They’re coming soon.
The third official theme song for nXt Takeover: Orlando is “Loud” by Motionless In White.
Promo:We see footage of Asuka at poolside mixed with match and interview footage of her run in nXt as Women’s Champion. It is combined with interview clips of Ember Moon saying she wants to be the one to defeat Asuka.
Singles Match: Macey Estrella vs. Nikki Cross w. SAnitY
Cross flies at Estrella, hammering her with lefts and rights. She flips her by the hair, face first on to the mat. Flying crossbody takes Estrella down. Swinging neckbreaker. Estrella’s in some pain. Cross picks her up again for another swinging neckbreaker. She gloats towards her stablemates as Eric Young says she knows what to do.
Cross picks up Estrella for a third swinging neckbreaker….and a fourth….and a fifth. The referee finally gets in there to check on Estrella. Cross laughs. She tells the referee to shut up. Estrella can’t even stand. Cross helps her to her feet and delivers a sixth swinging neckbreaker, putting her hands over Estrella’s face for the pinfall victory.
Winner: Nikki Cross via pinfall in 2 minutes
Post-match, it’s Tye Dillinger and No Way Jose, attacking SAnitY. It spills into the ring but the numbers advantage quickly overcomes the good guys. Young hits the wheelbarrow neckbreaker on Jose as Dillinger is forced to watch by Damo and Wolfe. Running senton by Damo on Dillinger.
Young yells at Dillinger that this is his fault. Your blood is on your hands, he says.
One cool point for Cross who made a statement tonight. She is still to be taken very seriously as a threat in the Women’s Division. The winner of the Asuka vs. Ember Moon match needs to be worried about what Cross can do.
Coming Up: Bobby Roode vs. Kassius Ohno for the nXt Championship
A promo is shown for a new wrestler but it is strange and provides no major details and no name.
Takeover: Orlando is quickly approaching and that means promotional theme songs! A fourth official theme song gets some airtime tonight and it’s “Shock Me” by Baroness.
Recap: Last week, Billie Kay was injured by Ember Moon’s devastating Total Eclipse move.
Earlier this week, Andrea DeMarco is trying to get an update on Kay’s condition when, behind them, a dispute breaks out between Cien, Lun and Oney Lorcan. Lorcan stepped in because Cien was bullying Lun.
Lorcan and Lun are best friends and nobody deserves that kind of treatment. Lorcan says if Cien wants to bully people, he can bully him.
Next Week:Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. Oney Lorcan and a Six Man Tag between SAnitY and Tye Dillinger, No Way Jose & Roderick Strong
Backstage, Kassius Ohno, wearing a 1992 USA Dream Team themed Ohno jersey, briefly shares how he plans to defeat Bobby Roode to win the nXt Championship.
Bobby Roode is asked about the match and he says Ohno is a failure. He proved it last time he was in nXt. Roode is going to prove to the entire world why this is HIS nXt.

He chokes Ohno with his boot by the bottom rope as the referee counts. Roode then chokes Ohno on the middle rope before slamming him into the turnbuckle again. The champion has slowed the pace of the match and is methodically working Ohno down.
From the second rope, Roode taunts Ohno then hits a flying elbow. 1-2- kickout by Ohno. Roode immediately tries to pin him again, getting an undesired result. After leaving Ohno to recuperate for a few moments, Ohno launches himself at Roode with a strong right hand.

Ohno’s back in the ring…whip is reversed by Roode and Ohno goes overboard to the floor below.
Back from the break, Roode is stretching Ohno’s arms behind him, driving that right knee into Ohno’s back. Fans kinda clap but don’t get fully behind the Ohno comeback. Dueling chants begin.

Both men are down and the referee counts to 7 before they rise.

Roode runs towards the ropes as Ohno holds on. Roode escapes and connects with the Glorious DDT! 1-2-3!
Winner and still nXt Champion:Bobby Roode via pinfall in 16 minutes
That means we’ll see a rematch at Takeover: Orlando between Bobby Roode and Shinsuke Nakamura. This time, Nakamura will be attempting to become the first 3-time nXt Champion.
Two cool points for Kassius Ohno’s in-ring work. He’s quite agile for a big man and he showed off plenty of variety in his offense. The fans were somewhat split as to their support, thanks to dueling chants on more than one occasion between the champ and the challenger.
One cool point for Bobby Roode’s scheming which forced him out of the ring on a few occasions but also spurred him on to victory tonight. Roode wins matches when he jumps on the errors of his opponent and makes them pay.
No surprise, really, that he’s facing Nakamura for the championship. That was Ohno’s first televised match in nXt and he needs time for the fans to get behind him and care.
Looking forward to your thoughts and cool point suggestions on tonight’s show
