Later tonight - TM61 vs. The Authors of Pain.
We see footage of Austin Aries beating No Way Jose in the opening match at TakeOver. I was really impressed with this bout. Jose showed he's more than just his gimmick. Aries had a great showing, and I'm glad he won. After the match, Hideo Itami came out and hits Aries with an epic GTS.
Backstage, Aries tells the interviewer to shut up. He's mad that he didn't get to celebrate like he should've. He says it's a reoccurring theme in NXT. Baron Corbin, No Way Jose, and now Hideo Itami. Aries says people won't make a name at his expense.
Graves tells Phillips that he thinks Aries has every right to be upset with Itami. Tom turns things over to the Women's Title Match.
We see the promo from Bayley from the contract signing a few weeks back. The next video package takes us through her match against Asuka, in which she came up short. This was a great NXT farewell match for Bayley, much like Sami Zayn's in Dallas.
Afterwards, Bayley says she felt like she had a home-court advantage or something in the air after winning her first Women's Title in Brooklyn last year. She discusses being able to escape the Asuka Lock. Ember Moon walks up and tells Bayley that she managed to take Asuka to her limit. Bayley says she can't wait to watch her grow.
As seen on Monday's Raw, Bayley made her official main roster debut, beating Dana Brooke. It looks like Bayley will be coming after Charlotte's WWE Women's Championship.
Corey Graves takes us through Gargano & Ciampa's NXT Tag Team Title match against The Revival. The champs ultimately retained in an amazing tag team classic.
