The show opens with Johnny Gargano's in-ring return with a new and improved theme song.
1) Johnny Gargano def. Raul Mendoza via crossface chicken wing in 4:13.
We see replays from last week's clash between Sanity and The Authors of Pain. It is now confirmed that the behemoths will face off in a Tag Team Title match at TakeOver: Brooklyn. Backstage, Paul Ellering cuts a promo on Sanity.
NXT Women's Champion Asuka makes her way out to the ring in a suit. Asuka says she's beaten Ember Moon before, and she'll do it again. Asuka claims Ember is not ready for her, which prompts Ember to come out. Ember reiterates that she's ready. A brawl breaks out, which results in Ember nailed the Eclipse to lay out the champ. Ember eyes the title and then leaves.
Backstage, Bobby Roode does a sit-down interview. He first addresses beating Roderick Strong, yet Strong wants to play the lottery again. Roode talks about Drew McIntyre and invites him to meet him in the ring to talk next week. Roode starts to leave when Strong runs in and tries to attack. Strong and Regal argue about the situation.
2) Sonya Deville def. Jenna Van Bemel via triangle arm bar in 2 minutes.
Hideo Itami is interviewed backstage about his beat down on Ohno. Itami says he hasn't been respected, so why should he show respect to anyone else? Itami takes the mic, walks out to the ring and continues talking in Japanese. Itami doesn't care who's next... and then Aleister Black's music hits. Black drops Itami with a spinning kick to the face.
No Way Jose vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas has been confirmed for next week.
3) Aleister Black def. Kyle O'Reilly via Black Mass in 15 minutes. This was quite the physical bout.
