Fish seems to be cleared for competitors now. Rowe tries to crawl to Fish, however Fish picks him up and it results in the champs hitting Complete Elimination. All four members of the Period pose within the ring as they’re proud of their end result.
Okay-Tank’s Take: I’m positive a variety of you’re getting a bit of uninterested in all of the unclean finishes we’ve gotten as of late on NXT. It does take away from how good a few of these matches are, however no less than every little thing is sensible, within the sense that everyone knows that is resulting in Struggle Video games. With Fish again, it appears like we’d get a standard four on four Conflict Video games as an alternative of a three on three on three like final yr. This match was nowhere close to on par to what Undisputed Period had been doing towards Lorcan/Burch and Moustache Mountain, however I don’t assume it wanted to be. These two groups may have one other battle for the title sooner fairly than later.
Nikki Cross is freaking out backstage saying she is aware of.
Britt Baker vs. Shayna Baszler
Britt Baker is presently courting Adam Cole, and most of you may know her from the superior 4 Approach ladies’s match that occurred at All In. They don’t present her full entrance, so no concept what sort of response she obtained, and I might assume that was finished on objective. Shayna with a fireman’s carry takeover after which instantly works on the left arm of Baker and twisting it in each approach potential. Shayna does her stomp on the uncovered elbow and the ref has referred to as for the bell after checking with Baker.
Winner: Shayna Baszler
After the match, the trainers go to take Baker out and Baszler decides to hit a step up knee strike to knock Baker out.
Okay-Tank’s Take: That looks like a waste for Baker. Contemplating the quantity of consideration she would’ve acquired for All In, it simply doesn’t make a lot sense. Actually, any lady might’ve carried out that. I’m not one for WWE conspiracies or something like that, however I can’t assist however join the dots a bit bit right here and marvel if that is WWE making an attempt to place their thumb down on one thing. Ideas? Am I over considering this? Pontificate within the feedback!
We go to William Regal’s workplace and he’s requested about what Nikki Cross might or might not know. Regal says he shall be speaking to her after her match tonight, as a result of Aleister Black is again quickly and he wants solutions.
Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch vs. Tian Bing & Rocky
Bing and Rocky are two of the Chinese language recruits WWE has developed on the Efficiency Middle. Bing and Oney begin the match. Oney and Burch with new gear, Oney in all blue with the USA flag and Burch in all pink with the Nice Britain flag.

Okay-Tank’s Take: All the time nice to see Burch and Lorcan. I really like their finisher. I don’t know once they’ll get again concerned within the tag title image, however I hope it’s within the playing cards for them.
It’s introduced that subsequent week, William Regal will make a serious NXT Championship announcement because it pertains to Takeover: Warfare Video games.
Bianca Belair vs. Nikki Cross
The gang is legitimately on their ft and going nuts for Nikki. It’s superb how in style she is. Bianca waits for Nikki to do one thing and Nikki explodes from the nook and takes down Bianca. They begin brawling to the ground and round ringside. Bianca tries to ship Nikki into the metal steps however Nikki reverses it. Nikki will get her within the ring and goes for a pin however solely a 1 rely. Monkey flip in the midst of the ring by Nikki. They go to the nook and Bianca begins to struggle again. Good fallaway slam by Bianca. Bianca with a neck vise of types as she tries to wear down Nikki. Nikki fights out after which comes off the ropes with a headscissors. Bianca comes proper again with a dropkick although. Bianca with a powerful handstand flip, utilizing Nikki’s physique as a base, after which coming proper again with a standing moonsault on Nikki’s again. Bianca lifts Nikki up in a double hen wing, maybe establishing for a Glam Slam, however Nikki rolls out and rolls up Bianca for a two rely. Bianca comes proper again although after which goes to the highest rope. Nikki cuts her off and places her within the tree of woe. Nikki simply stomps away.

Nikki as soon as once more kicks out although and Bianca can’t consider it. Nice facials by Bianca on this match. Bianca composes herself, and proceeds to pieface Nikki, telling her to remain down. Bianca as soon as once more exhibits off her power by gorilla urgent Nikki excessive over her head.

Nikki goes again to the highest rope and as she jumps off, Bianca with the large hair whip proper within the midsection of Nikki. Bianca now goes to the highest herself, however Nikki cuts her off. They’re battling on the second rope and Nikki manages to superplex her again into the ring. I simply now observed that Bianca’s glitter is actually all over the place within the ring. I don’t understand how I missed that.
As I sort that, the lights exit and Aleister Black’s music hits. The music stops and the lights come again on and Aleister has changed Bianca within the ring, sitting together with his legs crossed like he does. Nikki sees him and begins rolling round in laughter. Aleister motions her to cease after which summons her to return to him. Aleister tells her to inform him as she slowly crawls. Nikki will get shut in Aleister’s ear so nobody can hear. No matter she tells him has Aleister shaking in rage and anger as Nikki slides out of the ring. That ends our present.
Winner: No Contest?
Okay-Tank’s Take: Nicely there’s clearly so much to digest right here. First, for the precise match. These ladies actually have nice chemistry towards one another. I feel the non-finish right here will result in some kind of gimmick match at Takeover. With Baszler and Kairi dealing with off for the title at Takeover, there probably gained’t be a title match at Takeover. In order that leaves a chance for these two to face off once more. Bianca must let up on the glitter, however aside from that, she is so good within the ring and solely getting higher.
Now for the Aleister state of affairs. Did Nikki truly inform him? Is he indignant as a result of he is aware of now, or as a result of Nikki was enjoying her video games with even him? I can’t think about it’ll take lengthy to seek out out. Maybe with Regal’s huge NXT Title announcement subsequent week, that’s the place we’ll discover out for good. This storyline has been rather well carried out and the suspense has led to numerous nice tv, and even a pleasant elevation of Nikki Cross. I hope it’s a very good reveal and never one other, “I did it for The Rock.”
That’s it for this week! Till subsequent time, don’t do something I wouldn’t do… however when you do, identify it after me!
