Drew McIntyre’s return tour continued and so did the Scot’s domination.
McIntyre laid a vicious beating upon Rob Ryzin, who made the suspect decision to egg on the Scottish brawler. As a result, McIntyre picked up another “w” after delivering a single-leg Yakuza Kick for the pinfall.
Only Akam was needed to absolutely destroy The Authors of Pain’s opponents and pick up the emphatic victory.
Rezar spent the contest standing outside the ring, talking with Paul Ellering, but made his way back inside the squared circle after the contest to deliver the Super Collider to the NXT Tag Team Champions’ unfortunate prey.
Akam & Rezar’s WWE Hall of Fame manager then stood in the ring with his monsters, calling Heavy Machinery’s challenges foolish. Tucker Knight & Otis Dozovic didn’t take long to respond, stomping out to the ring to go face-to-face with the towering pair.
Instead of letting the potential earth-shattering collision take place, Ellering stepped in front of his powerful tandem as they backed away from the tense confrontation.
The Velveteen Dream defeated former Cruiserweight Classic competitor Raul Mendoza and he did it in style.
Showcasing his unique combination of flash and hard-hitting offense, Dream earned the pinfall victory via a majestic top-rope elbow drop that conjured up memories of “Macho Man” Randy Savage.
Just weeks after battling in an epic NXT Women’s Championship Triple Threat Match at TakeOver: Chicago, Asuka, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot squared off again in a huge title rematch. However, this time, the contest had an added elimination stipulation.
Riot was ousted first after Cross perched Riot’s feet across the top turnbuckle and nailed her with a vicious spinning neckbreaker.
Cross and Asuka then proceeded to fight throughout Full Sail University as the referee called the match a No Contest. That didn’t stop the bitter rivals from brawling outside the arena and throughout the backstage area. The Scottish Superstar delivered the final blow in this wild throw-down with a cross body to The Empress of Tomorrow, sending both competitors crashing through a table below.
