NXT
April 5th 2017
Orlando, FL

Aliyah vs. Peyton Royce

Aliyah started the match strong, but interference from Billie Kay on the outside turned the tide of the match. Royce went on offence but Aliyah battled back and landed a series of nice arm-drags. She was looking to go for some type of leg lock but Royce countered, kicked her in the face, and gave her the bridging fishermen suplex for the win.
Winner: Peyton Royce

Heavy Machinery vs. the Bollywood Boys

For the second week in a row Heavy Machinery is showcased in a squash match. The Bollywood Boys did get in a small amount of offence, but for the most part this was a Heavy Machinery showcase bout. With the Revival getting a call up there is room for another team in the NXT tag team title picture.
Winners: Heavy Machinery.

  • a backstage interview with Drew McIntyre is shown. Drew says his aim is the NXT championship. Commentary mentions he will be in action on next week’s show.

Oney Lorcan vs. El Vagabundo

El Vagabundo was Elias Samson under a mask. Samson lost a “Loser Leaves NXT” match last week to Kassius Ohno. The crowd in Orlando loved Vagabundo, which was clearly not expected. After getting cheered he sang a song about how the fans should shut up. Lorcan stopped him and got booed for his efforts.
Oney Lorcan un-masked Samson during the match, then hit a running blockbuster for the pin. After the match security once again escorted Samson out of the building.
Winner: Oney Lorcan
