WWE NXT Television Taping *SPOILERS* for Upcoming Broadcasts

NXT taped more television at Full Sail University tonight for shows that will air on future WWE Network broadcasts.  It’s not clear when these episodes will air, as there is another taping scheduled the day after the Cruiserweight Tourament starts.  The following are those results.  If you don’t want the shows spoiled, don’t read on!  Spoilers courtesy

If you were at the tapings and want to contribute additional information, feel free to email me at

Dark Match:  Tucker Knight def. Patrick Clark with a Thesz Press.

Samoa Joe cut a promo, saying he slayed the demon and tonight marks the beginning of Joe’s era.

  • Authors of Pain (w/Paul Ellering) def. enhancement talents.
  • Carmella def. Tessa Blanchard by submission
  • TM-61 def. Blake and Murphy.  There were some signs of tension between Blake and Murphy.
  • Andrade Almas def. Tye Dillinger.  Worth noting the fans were into Dillinger more so than Almas.

Finn Balor cut a promo, saying the first time he caught NXT on TV he saw Enzo and Cass and knew he wanted to be a part.  He said that he became part of NXT, and it became part of him.  He mentioned his title run and how he went to war time and again.  Now that he stands without the title, the fans want to know what’s next.  Fans chnted “Balor Club” and he made a quick “too sweet” sign.

He asked the question again only for Shinsuke Nakamura to come to the ring.  The fans popped and the two shook hands.  Nakamura said he watched Balor become an icon in NXT from Japan, and that even though Balor no longer holds the title he’s still an icon.  Nakamura said for him to become the NXT Champion he must go through the Icon.  Balor said Nakamura answered his “what’s next” question and the two squared off before shaking hands.

Bill Says:  Holy shit, that’s a huge match.

  • Ember Moon (f/k/a Athena) def. Mandy Rose
  • Oney Lorcan (f/k/a Christopher Girard or Biff Busick) def. Tye Dillinger.
  • No Way Jose def. an enhancement talent.  Austin Aries confronted him after, saying that he learned something from Jose and it’s about wrestling being fun.  They danced until Aries turned on him and kicked his ass to leave him laying.
  • Bayley def. Deonna Purazzo
  • Nia Jax def. Liv Morgan

Tye Dillinger came out to complain about losing two matches, and said he would go nowhere until Almas came back out.  They worked the body of a match with no start or finish.

  • Shinsuke Nakamura def. Buddy Murphy.
  • Alexa Bliss def. Carmella.
  • Andrade Almas def. Noah Kekoa.  The fans started booing Almas already.
  • Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa def. The Hype Bros (Zack Ryder and Mojo Rawley).  Afterward, Ciampa and Garagano staked claim to being the new #1 Contender, but American Alpha came out and said they will be once Alpha wins back the belts.  The Revival came out and said they call the shots on who their challengers are.  That brought William Regal out to remind everyone that he calls the shots and he booked Revival vs. American Alpha in a 2 out of 3 falls match.  Authors of Pain attacked American Alpha.  Garagano and Ciampa tried to make the save but couldn’t.  Jordan tried to fight back but quickly got overpowered.
  • Samoa Joe def. Oney Lorcan in a non-title match.
