NXT Women’s Champion Asuka’s win over Ember Moon at TakeOver: Orlando once again created an opening to challenge the titleholder.
With Peyton Royce and Aliyah battling to prove their standing within NXT’s ultra-competitive division, Royce claimed the all-important victory via a fisherman suplex (albeit with a small assist from her cohort Billie Kay).
Heavy Machinery continued their compelling introduction into NXT’s tag team division by crushing The Bollywood Boyz in dominant fashion.
Harv and Gurv Sihra did their best to try and slow down Tucker Knight and Otis Dozovic, but the size and strength disadvantage was just too much to overcome.
The colossal team of Heavy Machinery picked up the victory after Knight and Dozovic flattened poor Harv beneath their combined 650-pound frames. Now that’s how you win a match!
It turns out Oney Lorcan’s mystery opponent may be more of a familiar face than initially believed. Despite the mask, El Vagabundo certainly looked a lot like Elias Samson, who lost a Loser Leaves NXT Match against Kassius Ohno last week.
As if it wasn’t obvious enough when he walked through the curtain, the guitar and pre-match musical performance all but confirmed it. Lorcan wasn’t fooled, as he cut Vagabundo’s song short. However, a cheap shot from the masked Superstar allowed him to open the contest with the advantage.
Amid their hard-hitting showdown, Vagabundo’s mask came off, revealing The Drifter. Unfortunately for the former NXT Superstar, Lorcan hit a running blockbuster for the win just as Samson was bending down to pick up his cover.
Despite Samson’s desire to stay inside the ring, he was forcibly removed from the premises for the second week in a row.
