It’s time to get to Takeover. NXT is one of the most fascinating wrestling promotions in the world at the moment with all kinds of awesome things going on. It’s almost impossible to have a television show go on without seeing something cool or interesting taking place. That would likely be the case going forward with the upcoming television shows and now we can know for sure.

NXT was back at Full Sail University for a set of television tapings. These shows should air over the course of May 15, May 22, May 29 and June 5, though the next Takeover is scheduled to take place on June 1, meaning that some things may have to be changed. There is also the chance that these events may be airing out of the order in which they were taped. Here are the results, courtesy of

* NXT Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders open the show with an in-ring promo. Erik and Ivar talk about how they have gone to RAW to raid the show there. They call out NXT General Manager William Regal and offer to relinquish the titles but The Street Profits, Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins, interrupt. They may have lost the match a few weeks ago but they know they can beat The Raiders. The Raiders tell Regal to make the match and it’s on for later tonight with the titles on the line this time

* Keith Lee defeated Cezar Bononi

* Kushida defeated Kona Reeves. Drew Gulak watched the match from the top of the ramp

* Vanessa Borne defeated Jessie Elaban

* The Street Profits vs. NXT Tag Team Champions The Viking Raiders ended in a disqualification due to interference from The Forgotten Sons. Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch then hit the ring to continue the brawl. After the match, The Viking Raiders saluted the crowd and took a bow. They laid the titles down in the middle of the ring, apparently relinquishing them and saying goodbye to the brand. Fans chanted “Thank you Raiders”

* Xia Li defeated Rachael Evers

* The Undisputed Era’s Adam Cole, Roderick Strong, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish come to the ring. Cole says the rumors on their demise are not true and they are stronger than ever. Cole says at “Takeover: San Jose” in two weeks, O’Reilly and Fish will win the NXT Tag Team Titles, and he will win the NXT Title. NXT Champion Johnny Gargano interrupts and has words with Cole. Matt Riddle rushes the ring from the crowd and goes after Strong but they beat him down. Gargano hits the ring and makes the save, clearing the ring with Riddle

* Mansoor Al-Shehail defeated Sean Maluta

* NXT North American Champion The Velveteen Dream comes to the ring for a promo but he’s interrupted by Tyler Breeze. They have words and Breeze wants a title shot. Dream says Breeze has to get in line, but he will take a selfie with Breeze just because. They take the selfie and Breeze drops Dream

* Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner defeated Team 3.0

* Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch vs. The Forgotten Sons vs. The Street Profits vs. The Undisputed Era for the vacant titles will take place at Takeover

* Candice LeRae defeated Reina Gonzalez. After the match, LeRae is attacked by Marina Shafir, Jessamyn Duke and NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler. Io Shirai runs down with a kendo stick and makes the save

* Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish defeated Matt Riddle and NXT Champion Johnny Gargano after an assist from Adam Cole and Roderick Strong

* Mia Yim defeated Bianca Belair

* Kushida defeated Drew Gulak. After the match, Gulak argues with the referee and Kushida about the finish, claiming he kicked out just in time. This looked like the setup to a rematch

* Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch vs. The Forotten Sons ends in a disqualification when The Street Profits hit the ring. The Forgotten Sons turn things around with steel chair shots. All four members of The Undisputed Era run in next, beating everyone up. They brought a ladder into the mix and used that on the other teams. The tapings ended with The Undisputed Era posing on a ladder together

Maybe something can top this, though it’s going to be difficult. Check out something from the most recent episode of NXT:

Opinion: The schedule could be interesting going forward as they might move some things around to set them up for later. We now have some stories going forward as well, meaning some of Takeover is starting to be set up. If the show is anywhere near as great as the rest of the editions in its history, everything is going to be just fine. NXT has earned the benefit of the doubt and that is the case here too.
