WWE concluded its latest road trip Saturday night at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center. Included was Finn Balor getting his NXT Title re-match after losing the title to Samoa Joe at Thursday’s NXT live show…

(2) Bayley & Carmella beat Dana Brooke & Peyton Royce.

(3) Manny Andrade beat Tommaso Ciampa. Attendees said this was an excellent match.

(5) NXT tag champions American Alpha (Jason Jordan & Chad Gable) beat The Revival (Dash & Dawson) 2-1 in a two-out-of-three falls match to retain the NXT Tag Titles. American Alpha won the third fall with stereo anklelock submissions.

(6) NXT Women’s champion Asuka beat Alexa Bliss via submission to the Asukalock to retain the Women’s Title.
