By Brandon Albright, @B_Rock1978

NXT returned this week for more NXT action at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. This week, we were just three short days away from NXT WarGames live on the WWE Network this Saturday night.

** NXT TV Card **

- The Street Profits battled Tino Sabbatelli and Riddick Moss.
- Lars Sullivan battled Raul Mendoza.
- Ember Moon vs. Mercedes Martinez.

- NXT World Champion Drew McIntyre has a face to face with #1 Contender Andrade "Cien" Almas.

** NXT **

- Making A Profit: In the opening match of NXT, The Street Profits battled Tino Sabbatelli and Riddick Moss. Sabbatelli/Riddick and The Profits agreed to this match after The Profits had been mocking Sabbatelli and Moss on how they throw their money around on expensive stuff. The Profits defeat Sabbatelli and Moss after hitting spinning clotheslines on both men and then hitting their finisher.  

- Lars Sullivan Continues To Dominate: The undefeated Lars Sullivan stepped into the ring for the second match of the night against Raul Mendoza. Sullivan destroys Mendoza with corner splashes and a power slam. Sullivan hits the Freak Accident on Mendoza and gets the win. Sullivan continued the onslaught after the match until Kassius Ohno hits the ring and makes the save. 

- Mercedes Gets Eclipsed And A Stare Down Follows: The third match of the night saw Ember Moon battle Mercedes Martinez in a one on one match. Ember hits the Eclipse Stunner on Mercedes and gets the victory. After the match, Nikki Cross arrives from the crowd and stares down Ember. Peyton Royce arrives next and stares down Ember from the ramp. Kairi Sane arrives next and stares down Ember from the stage while pointing her elbow at her.

- McIntyre And Almas Face To Face: Drew McIntyre congratulates Andrade "Cien" Almas for the way that he got his title shot at NXT WarGames. McIntyre wonders if Almas can handle the pressure and wants Almas to come out and face him like a man, just as long as Zelina Vega let's him off his leash. Zelina arrives first, then Almas follows and then storms to the ring. Almas and McIntyre swing at each other with McIntyre gaining control. Zelina leaps at McIntyre, but gets caught in mid air and set aside. Almas sucker punches McIntyre and then lays him out with the Hammerlock DDT. Almas and Zelina pose with the NXT World Championship before tossing it on McIntyre's body to end the show.
