Baron Corbin vs Johnny Gargano – I love that Gargano continues to get matches in NXT. He had his best showing at least in terms of offense even if most of it was from a super kick that staggered Corbin. I don’t think Corbin’s End of Days finisher can be “Out of nowhere” frequently but worked well with Gargano charging into it. Good come back win for Corbin if they want to keep him in the upper echelon of NXT.
Sami Zayn isn’t happy about William Regal’s decision but understands it. He’s ready to fight more
The Hype Bros vs John Skyler & Corey Hollis – When I like someone, it’s easy to describe a squash match. When you don’t care about a team like the Hype Bros, it’s really hard. They win with the Hyper Ryder.
Bayley & Carmella do an interview. Their friendship is trying to reach Dean Ambrose & Roman Reigns levels.
Alexa Bliss vs Cameron – Bliss came out sporting a Freddy Kruger nuevo look. Blake & Murphy were with her. Cameron got in the early offense but Bliss brought it home with the Sparkle Splash. It’s not the best version of a splash but it is something different.
Enzo & Cass warn Dash & Dawson that they’re still aiming from them. Dan Gable & Jason Jordan interrupt them and tell them that it’s going to be their year.
Elias Samson vs Jesse Sorenson – Samson took part in his third consecutive squash match and yet again won with a swinging neck breaker. He looked more crisp and aggressive in this match than the other two so he’s improving in the ring. Now if only they could do the same for his character.
Apollo Crews doesn’t regret asking for his match against Finn Balor even though he came out on the losing end. He says that there’s going to be a new Crews when he gets into an NXT ring again.
Carmella vs Bayley for the NXT Women’s Championship – It is strange to me that validation of Carmella’s in ring skills came in this match. Her win last week over Emma should have been more convincing to it feel as if Carmella had a chance in this match. Bayley won with a reversal of a Carmella pin attempt. Eva Marie & Nia Jax attacked Carmella as she went to the back. Bayley tried to make the save but got clocked herself. After Eva & Jax tossed Carmella into the ring for more of a beating, Asuka showed up. She had a stare down with Jax. Eva & Jax left ring side. Asuka then stared down a recovering Bayley who checked on Carmella.
Samoa Joe thinks that Sami Zayn is an ungrateful person. Joe says that he’ll be the next NXT Champion. I’m not quite sure why that was saved for after the women’s big angle.
