- Bobby Roode Promo: Roode takes full credit for NXT Takeover: Orlando being successful. Roode says he refused to be apart of Shinsuke Nakamura's goodbye last week because he didn't want to listen to Nakamura's lies. Roode mocks Nakamura and says he beat Nakamura twice and made him tuck tail and run out of NXT. Hideo Itami returns to NXT and interrupts Roode. Itami goes face to face with Roode and then lights Roode up with a slap to the face. Roode takes off his jacket, rolls up his sleeves and goes to attack Itami. Itami catches Roode and lays him out with Go 2 Sleep.
