WrestlingInc.com have reported that Bull Dempsey opens up the show where he takes on Riddick Moss. Dempsey picked up the win in a match which is said to have had some comedy moments which the fans enjoyed.
Moss looks like a real talent as well, he has a great look for a heel and he really could go to the top of NXT if he is booked correctly. He was also featured as one of our future NXT stars to keep an eye on. Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady were in tag team action next with Carmella by their side, managing to pick up a win over Corey Hollis and John Skyler.
Asuka was in action again after her match with Dana Brooke in the first episode didn’t go ahead. This time, however, she knocked out Deonna Purrazzo which is a great way to build her up as a solid striker.
After the match, both Emma and Brooke appeared on the stage to taunt her with Asuka expected to meet Emma in the ring at NXT TakeOver: London.
The Hype Bros were in action next as they took on Blake and Murphy. Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley picked up the win after Ryder hit a super Rough Ryder off the top turnbuckle to win.

The penultimate bout of the tapings and the final episode saw NXT Women’s Champion Bayley picking up a win over Peyton Royce in a non-title match.
After her win, both Eva Marie and Nia Jax made their way out to the ramp to a negative reaction – as expected – before Jax told Bayley she will see her in London.
So now it looks as if Nia Jax will challenge Bayley for the NXT Women’s Championship at TakeOver, despite all of the rumours indicating towards Alexa Bliss, Dana Brooke and Eva Marie.
In the main event, Balor and Crews teamed up to take on Joe and Corbin and the fans were left surprised with the outcome of the match.
Samoa Joe choked out the champion Balor and the referee stopped the match as the show closed out focusing on Joe who held the NXT Championship.
