One week after Bobby Roode made his official NXT debut, the show opened with Roode and William Regal signing something official, much to Bobby’s delight. However, the central focus of WWE NXT was the contract signing between former NXT Women’s Champion Bayley and current champ Asuka. As the only attraction advertised on WWE’s official NXT preview, it’s no surprise that the drama was thick when Bayley and Asuka came face to face in the ring.
The WWE Network’s synopsis for this week’s episode of WWE NXT mentioned one match, completely unrelated to the NXT Women’s Championship.
“Mojo Rawley looks for revenge against NXT Champion Samoa Joe in our main event!”
After Samoa Joe attacked Rawley last week, Mojo tried in vain to even the score. But even with Samoa Joe’s attention on Shinsuke Nakamura, he was more than happy to make an example out of one-half of The Hype Bros.
Note: The following contains the full results and spoilers for the episode of WWE NXT that first aired on the WWE Network on August 10.
Bayley And Asuka’s Contract Signing
Bayley gave an impassioned speech about reclaiming the NXT Women’s Championship in Brooklyn and refused to shake Asuka’s hand, both before and after the champion signed her name on the dotted line. While they didn’t quite come to blows, the match at TakeOver should be explosive.
The Authors Of Pain Defeated Tom Risen And Adrian Nails
The monstrous duo flanked by Paul Ellering destroyed the repeat jobber tag team of Risen and Nails. As they began to issue a post-match beat-down, they were interrupted by TM-61. Shane Thorne and Nick Miller lasted only a few moments, however, before The Authors of Pain cleared the ring.
Andrade “Cien” Almas Defeated Angelo Dawkins
After making fairly quick work of Angelo Dawkins, Almas was confronted by recent TNA-transport Bobby Roode. He made the announcement that Bobby Roode vs. Andrade “Cien” Almas had officially been booked for TakeOver: Brooklyn II.
Austin Aries Vs. No Way Jose Booked For Brooklyn
After complaining that Samoa Joe, Asuka, and even Bobby Roode had matches booked for TakeOver: Brooklyn, NXT General Manager William Regal informed Austin Aries that he would be facing No Way Jose on August 20 at the Barclays Center.
Billie Kay Defeated Liv Morgan
Billie Kay has started to set herself apart from the rest of the new class of women on the NXT roster. Another win via Big Boot has to put Kay on the radar for future NXT Women’s Championship contests.
Tag Title Match And Ember Moon At TakeOver
After reviewing highlights of their phenomenal match against each other in the first round of the WWE Cruiserweight Classic tournament, Regal asked Tomasso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano if their match was going to cause any friction between them as a team. When they assured their boss that it wouldn’t be a problem, he officially announced that they would be facing The Revival at TakeOver: Brooklyn II for the NXT Tag Team Championship. After the segment ended, another vignette aired to remind everyone that Ember Moon would be making her NXT debut at TakeOver.
Johnny Gargano And Tomasso Ciampa Defeated Patrick Clark And Tucker Knight
WWE Tough Enough graduate Patrick Clark made his second appearance on WWE NXT (that’s two more than Tough Enough winner Josh Bredl), still sporting the ultra-patriotic tights. Tucker got in a little offense, but Gargano and Ciampa controlled the vast majority of the contest. They look very strong going into their match against The Revival at TakeOver.
Samoa Joe Defeated Mojo Rawley — Had To Be Held Back From Shinsuke Nakamura
Mojo Rawley put on possibly the best singles match he ever had while competing at NXT. Unfortunately, it just wasn’t enough to get past NXT Champion Samoa Joe. Rawley tapped out to the Coquina Clutch. After yelling “Nakamura!” straight into the camera after the match, he put Mojo in the hold once again. This brought out his TakeOver challenger, as well as about a dozen security guards. As the men held the NXT Champion back, Nakamura continued to taunt him. The payoff at TakeOver should be well worth it for this one.
These results have been confirmed by WWE’s official NXT page.
