The show opens with a recap video on NXT TakeOver: Orlando.

Tom Phillips, Percy Watson, and Nigel McGuinness welcome us to the show and hype the scheduled matches for tonight.

1) Peyton Royce (w/Billie Kay) def. Aliyah via pinfall in just under 3 minutes. Decent back-and-forth match.

We get a recap of Sanity overcoming Dillinger, Ohno, Strong & Riot in an impressive match. Asuka managed to retain against Ember Moon. Backstage, Asuka questions who's left to challenger, laughs, and walks off.

Aleister Black debuted and beat Andrade Almas on Saturday. We are shown a pic of Almas partying after TakeOver. The commentators question whether he is too worried about his social life and not his in-ring career. (Hmmm..?)

2) Heavy Machinery def. The Bollywood Boyz via pinfall in 3:20.

Backstage, Oney Lorcan says he doesn't know who his opponent is, but he's here to compete and win.

We see a recap of the epic triple threat elimination NXT Tag Team Championship match that saw The Authors of Pain overcoming The Revival & #DIY. Backstage, Paul Ellering calls this vindication and confirmation for the Authors. They proved themselves.

Footage of Bobby Roode retaining against Nakamura airs. After the lengthy package, Roode promises this is only the beginning and asks Dasha if we are ready for Roode's NXT.

In an interview with WWE.com, Drew McIntyre confirms he has signed with NXT. He'll be on next week's show.

3) Oney Lorcan def. El Vagabundo via pinfall in 6:15. The masked star was Elias Samson under a mask. Vagabundo cut a promo and sang a lovely song before Lorcan cut him off. Before hitting the running blockbuster to finish the match, Lorcan pulls off the mask to reveal it's The Drifter.

Security forces Samson to leave as Lorcan celebrates to end the show.
