By Brandon Albright, @B_Rock1978

Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE, brings you this week's NXT recap.

This week's NXT featured DIY, The Revival and The Authors of Pain arguing over the #1 Contendership. No Way Jose and WWE Cruiserweight Champion Rich Swann battled SAnitY. Ember Moon battled Kimber Lee in Women's Division action. In the main event, Samoa Joe defended the NXT World Championship against Shinsuke Nakamura. 

** NXT **

- DIY Promo: Gargano and Ciampa immediately get interrupted by Paul Ellering and The Authors of Pain. Ellering reminds us that the AOP are undefeated and the winners of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament. The Revival interrupt next, state they are the rightful #1 Contenders and the only reason AOP won is because The Revival helped them. Both AOP members shove Wilder and Dawson to the mat. Ellering says the next chapter has been written already and it ends with the Authors of Pain winning the NXT World Tag Team Championship.

- No Way Jose and Rich Swann vs. SAnitY (Eric Young and Alexander Wolfe): Before the match, Young throws a jacket down in the middle of the ring, stomps on it, then tossed it out of the ring. The jacket is believed to be Sawyer Fulton’s and it appears he's been kicked out of SAnitY. The match closes out with Jose hot tagging and clearing the ring. Swann hits a corkscrew senton on Wolfe. Wolfe tosses Swann into the steel steps. Big Damo suddenly appears and attacks Jose. Young hits the wheelbarrow neck breaker on Jose and scores the pinfall.
Winners: SAnitY, by pinfall.

- Backstage, NXT GM William Regal announces that DIY will face The Revival for the NXT World Tag Team Championship with the winners facing Authors of Pain at NXT Takeover: San Antonio. Tye Dillinger interrupts and says he doesn't deserve to be in NXT. Regal announces that he's also booking a tournament to crown a #1 Contender to the NXT World Championship.

Ember Moon vs. Kimber Lee: The match closes out with Kimber missing a kick and Ember getting a near fall roll up. Kimber goes to the corner where Ember hits a front flip elbow on Kimber. Ember hits the O Face Stunner on Kimber to score the pinfall.
Winner: Ember Moon, by pinfall.

- "NXT World Championship Match": Samoa Joe (c) vs. Shinsuke Nakamura: The match closes out with Joe and Nakamura brawling on the floor. Nakamura blocks a Uranage Slam and hits the Kinshasa on Joe, sending Joe into the steel steps. Back in the ring, Nakamura and Joe trade strikes. Nakamura hits an axe kick, follows that with a knee to Joe's head then picks Joe up in a fireman's carry. Joe escapes, however, Nakamura hits a Super Kinshasa off the ropes on Joe. Nakamura hits another Kinshasa, covers, scores the pinfall and wins the title from Joe.
Winner: Shinsuke Nakamura, by pinfall, to win the NXT World Championship.
