This week's NXT saw Oney Lorcan battle Andrade "Cien" Almas in one on one action. NXT Women's Champion Asuka battled Priscilla Zuniga in a one on one non title match. The main event of the show saw SAnitY battle Tye Dillinger, Roderick Strong and No Way Jose in a Six Man Tag Team Match.

** NXT **

- Oney Lorcan vs. Andrade "Cien" Almas: The match closes out with Almas countering a suplex and striking Lorcan. Lorcan plants a headbutt, but Almas hits a springboard Pele Kick. Lorcan lands more strikes, but Almas delivers a lariat. Lorcan ends up in the corner where Almas hits the running double knees on him. Almas plants Lorcan with the Hammerlock DDT and scores the pinfall.
Winner: Andrade "Cien" Almas, by pinfall.

- Backstage, #DIY state that they've been around the world, competed in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, defeated The Revival for the NXT World Tag Team Championship and now are dealing with The Authors of Pain, a team that has no love for the business. #DIY thank their fans and promise to have their moment at Takeover: Orlando.

- Asuka vs. Priscilla Zuniga: Before the match, Asuka sends a warning to Ember Moon and kicks Priscilla's head off. The match closes out with Asuka delivering a hip attack on Priscilla and then plants another kick to the head. Asuka covers, but pulls Priscilla up at two and a half, breaking the pinfall. Asuka finally locks Priscilla in the Asuka Lock submission and gets the tap out victory. After the match, Asuka sends another warning to Ember Moon in Japanese.
Winner: Asuka, by submission.

- Backstage, The Revival state that they've studied the greats and have brought the best of the past to the present. The Revival state that no one has fought as hard as they have to get where they are now.

- Backstage, Tye Dillinger, No Way Jose and Roderick Strong hype their match tonight against SAnitY and state that they have the numbers game evened out now.

- Interview With Kassius Ohno: An interview with Kassius Ohno took place last week after his NXT World Championship Match loss to Bobby Roode. Elias Samson interrupts singing Ohno a song about him failing and not belonging in NXT. Ohno challenges Samson to a "Loser Leaves NXT Match". Samson accepts the challenge.

- "Six Man Tag Team Match": SAnitY vs. Tye Dillinger, Roderick Strong and No Way Jose: The match closes out with Nikki Cross getting involved and grabbing Jose's leg, allowing Wolfe to land a big boot. Jose gets worked over by SAnitY until finally tagging Strong, who unloads on everyone. Strong hits backbreakers on everyone and gets a near fall on Young after Dain breaks the pinfall. All six men brawl, forcing the referee to throw the match out.

After the match, Dillinger mud hole stomps Young in the corner until Nikki jumps on Dillinger's back. NXT newcomer Ruby Riot debuts by hitting the ring and laying out Nikki. Dillinger sends Young to the floor, Wolfe gets tossed out and all three men drop Dain. Strong, Jose, Dillinger and Ruby stand tall to end the show.
Winners: No Contest.
