Posted December 10th, 2015 by 1Wrestling News Team

The standard opening opens the show this week.  We are shown the crowd shot at Full Sail and Rich Brennan says he cannot wait for Takeover: London, just one week away.
Enzo Amore, Colin Cassady, and Carmella make their way to the ring without their usual entrance.  They look serious tonight.
Match 1: Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady (with Carmella) vs. Corey Hollis and John Skyler.
Cass starts against Skyler and drives him into the corner and works him over with fists to the gut.  Cass follows up with a back elbow to the face and a clubbing forearm.  Skyler is tossed from the corner to the opposite corner.  Cass goes in for a big splash in the corner.  Cass picks up Skyler and carries him to his corner to tag Enzo but Skyler escapes and moves as fast as he can to his corner to tag Corey Hollis.
Hollis charges after Enzo but Enzo ducks, comes off the ropes, and nails Hollis with a flying forearm.  Enzo connects with a standing dropkick and makes the tag to Cass.  Cass returns and throws Enzo onto Hollis in the corner.  Then, he knocks Skyler off the apron with a huge boot to the face.  Cass picks Hollis up and hits a sidewalk slam before launching “Air Enzo” for the three count.
Winners: Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady.
Post-match: Enzo & Cass cut a promo from inside the ring.  Enzo points to the carnage and says that is how we put food on the table.  Enzo calls out Dawson then Dash and says he will not let them interefere with how he feeds his family.
Enzo says that he and Cass have been together longer than any team in NXT history.  Cass is like family and if you take him out and mess with his future, you mess with my future.  Enzo continues and says that the only people that will mess with his future are standing in the ring.  Enzo says we can walk the walk and talk the talk because we know who we are and where we are going.
Cass takes his turn and says Dash and Dawson tried to take him out.  But, at NXT Takeover: London, they will get retribution, they will leave Dash and Dawson laying, and they will walk out the NXT Tag Team champs.
Backstage, Tom Phillips is standing with Emma and Dana Brooke.  He asks Dana if shes calmed down from last week.  Dana says I’m fine, but Asuka may not be.
Tom tells Emma that, next week, she finally gets her chance at Asuka.  Tom asks her if she is ready for that match.  Emma says the question is not if she’s ready but why Asuka has been given the red carpet treatment since arriving here.  She says she’s pretty sure that neither she nor Dana have ever had that.  Emma says she relizes she was big in Japan but this is NXT.  Emma says the “Diva’s Revolution” would not have happened without the “Emmalution.”  Emma says she paved the way long before you had even heard of Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte, or Asuka.  Emma believes that, at NXT Takeover, the Emmalution will be the solution to put Asuka in her place.
Dana concludes by saying that, just because they can, they will take a closer look at Asuka’s match tonight because they are in control.  Dana makes Tom bend down for a pat on the head.
Rich Brennan checks in on commentary along with Corey Graves and Byron Saxton.  They are talking about the match next between Asuka and Emma.  Rich says he cant wait to see it.  Byron says its like fight or flight syndrome.  Emma will either show up and get the job done or Asuka will tie her into a pretzel.  Graves thinks we will see the pretzel.
The announce team teases Asuka for next and also highlights Blake and Murphey against the Hype Bros for later in the show. They tease the main event as well that has Finn Balor and Apollo Crews facing Samoa Joe and Baron Corbin.  Asuka is in action next as we go to break.
As we return to Full Sail, Asuka makes her entrance.  Her opponent, Deonna, also gets an entrance.
Match 2: Asuka vs. Deonna Purrazzo
The bell rings and the crowd begins an “Asuka’s going to Kill You” chant.  The two ladies lock up and Asuka flips Purrazzo to the mat.  Asuka grabs an armbar that gets reversed by Purrazzo.  Asuka reverses back and turns it into a hammerlock.  Deonna powers up and Asuka takes her to the mat with a headlock takeover.  Deonna quickly grabs a head scissors and Asuka is, just as quickly, out.
Asuka takes Purrazzo to the canvas and quickly traps her in her arm bar submission hold.  Purrazzo is able to clamp her feet to the ropes and force a break.  Asuka breaks the hold but opens up with some hard kicks to Purrazzo.  Purrazzo is able to catch the leg of Asuka and nail her with a solid forearm.  She tries to whip Asuka to the ropes but Azuka reverses it and catches Purrazzo with a running hip attack.
Emma’s music hits and she and Dana walk to the stage and distract Asuka.  Deonna tries to take advantage.  She spins Asuka around but gets caught with a roundhouse kick to the head knocking her unconscious.  Asuka is declared the winner by knockout as Emma and Dana look on in stunned disbelief.
Winner: Asuka

We cut to Samoa Joe and Baron standing in the back, in what looks to be an equipment area.  Joe says he’s not pretending that he and Baron see eye-to-eye but, tonight, its not about them; its about Apollo Crews and Finn Balor.  Baron addresses Apollo saying that its no secret that he doesn’t like anything about him.  He refers to Crews as a nobody rookie.  Joe addresses Finn saying he gets blamed for betraying their friendship.  Joe asks if it was really him.  Joe says he fought by Balor’s side and did everything he was asked and, when Joe asked him for one favor, Finn could not do that for him.  Corbin says that, tonight, they will put a beating on them so bad, they will be lucky to make it to London.
