Episode One (Airing Dec. 7, 2016):
NXT Tag Team Champions Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa came out for a promo but were interrupted by The Authors of Pain. Paul Ellering said he thought they should be champions from the top of the ramp when The Revival came out. Dawson talked about wanting a rematch but The Authors backed them down.

Trainers came out to check on the talent and Paul Ellering got on the mic and stated they didn't care who they faced -- The Revival or DIY -- they'll be winning the WWE NXT Tag Team Championship at TakeOver: San Antonio. We got word this was a pretty ugly spot that you can view below:
