Austin Aries defeated No Way Jose via Submission – Singles Match
It’s “The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived” vs “The Dancing Man”. No Way Jose and Austin Aries have been engaged in a surprisingly decent rivalry, all stemming from the latter and his loss to Shinsuke Nakamura at the previous Takeover event. Aries and Jose would share a backstage segment, with Jose reminding Aries what wrestling is about; having fun. Aries would meet Jose in front of the Full Sail crowd to dance with him later that night, only to turn on him and brutally attack him. Jose would return weeks later to settle the score, attacking Aries and cutting a surprisingly passionate promo.

Aries spent most of the match punishing Jose, disrespecting the crowd’s passionate support for the Dominican superstar. Aries secured the win with a Last Chancery. After the match ended, Aries continued to apply the hold, until Hideo Itami made his presence known, by hitting Aries with the GTS in front of a poppin’ crowd. Aries vs Itami confirmed for the next Takeover.
 
Ember Moon defeated Billie Kay – Singles Match
If you’ve heard the name “Athena” before, then you’re in luck. If you haven’t, read on anyway. A series of mysterious vignettes have been airing on NXT TV for a couple of weeks now, and they’re for the newly named Ember Moon, the latest acquisition for the NXT Women’s Division. Known better from her time on the independent circuit, wowing crowds with her unique style of offense, Moon made her debut against Billie Kay, has been building up a series of impressive wins herself, looking to continue her momentum by toppling this new face.

A brief match ensued, with Moon collecting her first victory against NXT’s Australian femme fatale. Despite the short match, Moon got a great showing, and I look forward to her next match.
 
Bobby Roode defeated Andrade Almas – Singles Match
Hashtag, “GloriousBomb”. The latest acquisition to NXT’s roster, Bobby Roode, has caught the attention of many since debuting on NXT TV. Cutting a promo stating his intentions, Roode cemented himself as the next big heel in the show by proclaiming himself as “Glorious”, wanting to make NXT better than what it is now. The following week, fellow newcomer Andrade Almas, fresh off his debut at the previous Takeover, was confronted by Roode after a match. These two had never clashed before, leading to many big questions; would Almas fall to his second opponent, or would Roode be unable to conquer the Man of a Thousand Souls?

Amazing entrances aside, Bobby Roode had an awesome showing against Andrade Almas, securing the win with his new pumphandle slam finisher, the “Glorious Bomb”. A fantastic showing from Almas all the same, it puts both competitors on the map immediately.

The Revival (c) defeated Gargano & Ciampa via Submission – NXT Tag Team Championship Match
The Revival, the first ever two-time NXT Tag Team Champions, have been running wild over the division over the past few months. Conquering American Alpha, Enzo and Cass, and TM61, the team of Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder appeared to be on top form going into the event. However, there’s one team that’s beaten the champions since their second reign began… the team of Gargano and Ciampa. After campaigning for a championship match against their adversaries, their request was granted.

A fire underneath them, Gargano and Ciampa took it to the champions throughout the match. Ciampa took a finisher from Revival, and nearly got the win before the shenanigans of Revival prevented that. The Revival then took to Gargano’s injured knee, forcing a submission until Gargano would tap. The team soaked in an ovation from Brooklyn before heading to the back. Hopefully this won’t be the last we see of G&C in the title picture…
 
Asuka (c) defeated Bayley – NXT Women’s Championship Match
Going into this match, Asuka remained undefeated since her arrival to NXT. Conquering opponents such as Dana Brooke, Emma, Nia Jax, and the former champion Bayley, Asuka appeared unstoppable. As one of the Four Horsewomen, noted for starting the movement known as the Women’s Revolution, Bayley has been a mainstay of NXT for several years, winning over the hearts of the audience. Looking to regain her championship from the woman who defeated her for it in April, Bayley was focused and more determined than ever. Whilst Asuka enjoys instilling fear into her opponents, Bayley remained unaffected in the face of the Empress of Tomorrow. Tensions rose to maximum levels between the two over several weeks, coming to a head at this event.

With Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch watching from ringside, a brutal match ensues, with Asuka collecting the win over the valiant Bayley after a vicious kick to the head of the challenger. After the bell rang, Asuka hugged the former-champion, and seceded the ring to her to make her farewell. Could we see Bayley move up soon? Time will tell…
 
Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Samoa Joe (c) – NXT Championship Match
Well folks, I bet you didn’t think we’d ever see this match happen. After slaying the demon at the previous Takeover, Samoa Joe has proven himself as a vicious champion, defeating all opponents in his way. Meanwhile, after defeating Austin Aries at that same Takeover, Shinsuke Nakamura set his sights on the NXT Championship. But before he could face Joe, Nakamura needed to defeat the Icon of NXT: former champion Finn Balor. After prevailing in a MOTY candidate, Nakamura and Joe met for the first time.

After a very hard-hitting match, with Nakamura and Joe taking each other to the limit, Nakamura pinned Samoa Joe. After multiple Kinshasa knee-strikes, the King of Strong Style defeated the champion, ending the reign of Samoa Joe at 121 days. The battle may be won, but the war between Nakamura and Joe might have only just begun.
