(1) No Way Jose pinned Murphy.
(2) Manny Andrade pinned Chris Girard (f/k/a Biff Busick).
(3) Austin Aries pinned Tye Dillinger.
(4) NXT Women’s champion Asuka beat Bayley and Alexa Bliss in a three-way match to retain the NXT Women’s Title when Alexa tapped out.
[ Intermission. The ring announcer said Salina wrong and got a “you F’d up” chant. Should have been “suh-lie-nuh” and he said “suh-lee-nuh.” ]
(5) Shinsuke Nakamura pinned Tyler Breeze.
(6) NXT tag champs American Alpha (Jason Jordan & Chad Gable) beat Alexander Wolfe & Sawyer Fulton.
(7) NXT champion Samoa Joe pinned Finn Balor with the Musclebuster to retain the NXT Title.
To close the show, Finn Balor called the ring announcer back into the ring to apologize for saying Salina wrong. He steered us into a “What” chant and then Finn did the Rock’s “It Doesn’t Matter” schtick. He finished by saying “We Are NXT!”
– Best match: Samoa Joe vs. Finn Balor.
– Worst match: Tag match, but no fault to American Alpha. Wolfe and Fulton were big, slow, lumbering jobbers.
– Biggest Pops: Finn Balor, Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bayley, Asuka, Tyler Breeze (entrance).
– Most Heat: Tyler Breeze (for the rest of his match), Alexa Bliss, Murphy.
