(3) The Drifter Alias Sampson defeated an unnamed team with no ring intro. The crowd hates the Drifter. Arena goes dark. He’s playing guitar and singing on stage. “Let’s go jobber!!” chants the crowd.

Video recap of Andrade Cien Almas heel turn on Cedric Alexander from “two weeks ago” So maybe this match will be inserted into another show?
(2) Andrade Cien Almas beat Cedric Alexander with a DDT after a low blow. Almas is much more comfortable as a heel. His best performance so far NXT. Longest match of the taping.
Contract signing for NXT Takeover Toronto between Nakamura and Samoa Joe. William Regal comes out to the ring with security. Nakamura out first. Joe drags his own table on stage, saying he doesn’t feel safe and he doesn’t want to hurt that “rabbid animal” Nakamura. After insulting and goading, Regal walks the contract up to the stage for Joe to sign. Nakamura then attacks the security guards in the ring, including a power bomb through the table. Nakamura signs and his music plays. Stare down between the ring and stage.
(4) Sanity defeated T.J. Perkins & Kota Ibushi (Alexander Wolfe & Sawyer Fulton) when Fulton pinned Ibushi after the double powerslam in a Dusty Classic quarter final match. After tag Sanity beats down Ibushi. Nakamura saves. Lays out Sanity. Wolfe takes Kinshasaa.
