Tonight, NXT features a triple-threat elimination match for the Women’s Championship match. A video hyped it as the main event prior to the opening credits. Tom Phillips welcomes us to the show and we see Drew McIntyre make his entrance for the first match. His opponent was already in the ring.

Match 1: Drew McIntyre vs. Rob Ryzin.

McIntyre dominates early, takes Ryzin up and Ryzin goes over his back and lands on his feet. He shoves McIntyre only to get Drew mad and causing him to unleash a series of strikes on Ryzin. He nails Ryzin with a belly-to-belly. Ryzin hangs on to the ropes to try to get away from McIntyre. When Drew goes to get him, Ryzin takes out McIntyre’s knee. He nails a superkick to the face and goes for the pin but McIntyre kicks out at one.

Drew comes back with a running forearm in the corner and a forearm off the ropes. Ryzin recovers and tries to slap Drew who gets upset again. Drew hits his running Claymore kick for the three count.

Winner: Drew McIntyre

We are introduced to the announce table for the first time tonight on camera. Phillips, Percy Watson, and Nigel McGuinness show a flashback video from two weeks ago when Ember Moon was cleared to compete again. Next week, its announced that Ember Moon will face Peyton Royce. A graphic hypes the main event for later in the show. We head to break.

We are back to a video profile of Alester Black. The Authors of Pain and Paul Ellering make their entrance for the next match. Their opponents are already in the ring.

Match 2: Authors of Pain (with Paul Ellering) vs. Unknown Team in a non-title match

Akam starts the match as Rezar drops to the floor to talk to Ellering. Akam takes the match handicap style and quickly squashes the team.

Winner: Authors of Pain.

Rezar grabs one of the opponents as he leaves the area and the AOP perform the Super Collider.

Ellering takes the mic and runs through every team they have beaten as they right the first chapter in their Book of Dominance. He calls out Heavy Machinery and says they wont be a footnote. Machinery comes out and stands toe-to-toe with the AOP but Ellering thinks better of a confrontation and leads them away.

A second video flashback is shown involving the verbal confrontation between Bobby Roode and Roderick Strong. A tweet from Strong is shown in response that says Strong has seen a hundred Roodes but Roode has not seen one of him.

A graphic hypes the main event and that the Velveteen Dream is up next. As we go to break.

A Sonya Deville, formerly known as Daria Berenato, biographic video was shown. She will be in action next week.

The Velveteen Dream makes his entrance. His opponent is already in the ring.

Match 3: Velveteen Dream vs. Raul Mendoza

There was some nice back and forth action early as Dream took down Mendoza with a shoulder block. Mendoa fired back with some offense of his own, including a massive kick to the jaw.

Dream came right back though and dropped Mendoza, chest-first, to the mat. Dream took off his headband and whipped Mendoza with it. Mendoza tried another brief comeback and sped things up big time with some nice agility around the ring.

Dream hit a flapjack to take control and did a cartwheel slam. Dream finishes things off with a top-rope elbow drop for the three count.

Winner: Velveteen Dream

A flashback video is shown of the confrontation last week between former friends, Hideo Itami and Kassius Ohno. We go to the back where Ohno is being interviewed about the state of his friendship with Itami. Ohno says he doesn’t know the state of the friendship but thinks Itami is frustrated and needs to get over it. Ohno believes he will lead by example when he takes on Aleister Black next week.
