1. Riddick Moss (f/k/a Mike Rallis) beat Elias Samson.
August 19 Show:
The show opened with the contract signing for the NXT Women’s Championship match at Takeover Brooklyn. Bayley thanked everyone for their support and said without them, she wouldn’t be where she is, getting ready for the biggest match of her career. She said everyone can feel it including Sasha; it’s Bayley’s time. Sasha said they’re going to fight at NXT’s biggest show ever. She said she’s not ratchet and she’s the baddest diva in WWE. She admitted Bayley is good, but not at Sasha’s level. She said at Takeover, she’ll cement her legacy as the greatest NXT Women’s Champion in history.
Bayley said she’s ready to fight right now. Sasha said that Charlotte and Becky Lynch were the real threats to the NXT Women’s Championship and Bayley isn’t. Sasha said that there’s a reason she’s on Raw and Summerslam and Bayley isn’t, because Bayley is a loser. Sasha said she’s going to teach all the little girls that fairy tales don’t have happy endings. Sasha decided she wasn’t going to fight Bayley there, but Bayley attacked her anyway. It ended with referees pulling the two ladies apart.
1. Tyler Breeze squashed an enhancement wrestler. Breeze won with a superkick and then put Liger mask on his opponent. Then, Breeze hit the Beauty Shot and pinned the guy again.
2. Enzo Amore, Colin Cassady, Mojo Rawley, and Zack Ryder over Aaron Solow, Mr. 450, Jesse Sorensen, and a fourth enhancement wrestler.
3. NXT Tag Champions Blake and Murphy (w/ Alexa Bliss) beat Sawyer Fulton and Angelo Dawkins in a non-title match. Afterwards, The Vaudevillains came out and were about to reveal their plan to combat Bliss at Takeover, but she slapped English mid-sentence and he never completed the thought.
4. Samoa Joe squashed a jobber. Post-match, Baron Corbin attacked and laid Joe out with End of Days.
Kevin Owens came out with a ladder. He said Full Sail reminds him of John Cena because there’s nothing genuine about it or the fans who go there. He called the fans ungrateful. He said that they claim they want NXT to grow, but then they boo whenever Brooklyn is mentioned. Owens said his loss in Japan was a fluke and at Takeover it’s going to be a Kevin Owens that nobody has seen before. He said it will be “Climb Owens Climb” and he’ll get back what is rightfully his, the NXT Championship.
The lights cut out, and when they picked back up, Finn Bálor was perched on the top turnbuckle. There is a stare-down between Owens on the ladder and Bálor on the turnbuckle before it broke down into a brawl. Bálor ended up getting the better of Owens and said that at Takeover Brooklyn, he’s going to kick Owens’s ass and shut his mouth.
August 26 Show:
1. Sasha Banks beat an enhancement wrestler. Sasha had the NXT Women’s Championship with her, but that could be nothing.
2a. The Ascension beat Rhyno and Baron Corbin by DQ. The Ascension were crazy over with the Full Sail crowd, who met them with numerous “welcome back” chants. William Regal came out and ordered the match be restarted.
2b. Baron Corbin and Rhyno over The Ascension.
3. Alexa Bliss beat Blue Pants.
4. Apollo Crews def. Martin Stone.
5. Eva Marie beat Billie Kay (f/k/a Jessie McKay).
6. Chad Gable and Jason Jordan beat Neville and Solomon Crowe. This was said to be the best thing on the show by a wide margin. Neville was crazy over with the Full Sail Crowd as well.
September 2 Show:
1. Carmella submitted Peyton Royce (f/k/a KC Cassidy).
2. Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano beat Bull Dempsey and Tyler Breeze. You read that right. Gargano and Ciampa are doing freelance work and are not under contract. Camp got the surprise win on Bull when Bull accidentally ran into Breeze. Post-match, Breeze attacked Bull.
3. Dana Brooke pinned Billie Kay.
4. Neville defeated Kevin Owens by DQ. Notably, Kevin Owens came out with the NXT Championship belt, which could signal a real lapse in creative’s level of caring, or could just be a red herring. Owens was DQ’d when he hit Neville with the title belt. Finn Bálor ran out to attack Kevin Owens post-match, but Tyler Breeze hit the ring to take him out. Owens and Breeze got the better of Bálor until Neville fought back and the babyfaces beat up Breeze to end the show.
