Bobby Roode and Hideo Itami Segment

Roode’s promo was directed at people who had been saying nice things about Nakamura following his departure from NXT. Roode reminds fans that Nakamura left because he beat him so badly. This brought out the returning Hideo Itami, who eventually gave Roode the GTS and knocked him out.

Jack Gallagher and Tyler Bate Segment

We get a short segment promoting next weekend’s UK championship match between 205 Live’s Jack Gallagher and the UK tournament champion, Tyler Bate. Things were kept on a sportsmanship level between the two later in the show when they were both interviewed backstage.

Andrade Almas and Drew McIntyre Segment

We see captured video of Drew McIntyre working out with Heavy Machinery when Almas enters the gym and gets in McIntyre’s face. The two will face each other in single’s action next week.

1. Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. Danny Burch

This was a showcase match for Almas, who won with his modified DDT. Almas is gaining steam as a heel, though his loss to Aleister Black at Takeover: Orlando set him back a peg.
He faces Drew McIntyre next week on NXT.
Winner: Andrade Almas

2. Liv Morgan and Aliya vs. the Iconic Duo (Billy Kay and Peyton Royce)

The babyfaces pull off an upset here, as Aliyah manages to score the sunset flip pin on Peyton Royce. After the match the Australian heels threw a tantrum in the ring.
Winners: Morgan and Aliyah (Aliyah pinned Royce)

3. Steel Cage Match
Tye Dillinger vs. Eric Young

Dillinger becomes one of the rare few to leave NXT on a winning note, as he defeated Eric Young in an exciting steel cage match in last night’s main event. Young seemed to get busted up hard-way, but no effort was made to clean up the blood.
Members of Sanity all rushed the cage, but the rest of the mid card babyfaces (Ohno, Strong, Ruby Riot) came out to even the odds.
Young hit an elbow drop from the top of the cage at one point. Dillinger also went off the cage and hit Young and another member of Sanity with a cross body. Finish of the match was Dillinger escaping through the cage door and locking the rest of the members of Sanity inside.
Winner: Tye Dillinger
