This is an interesting time for NXT as one of their biggest stories isn’t taking place on NXT. Instead, NXT Champion Kevin Owens has been called up to the main roster and even defeated John Cena clean on pay per view in his debut match. It doesn’t help that he’s feuding with a bunch of people here in NXT as well. Let’s get to it.
The opening video is all about Owens beating Cena at Elimination Chamber.
General Manager William Regal has an announcement tonight.
Tyler Breeze vs. Adam Rose
Fans: “WE WANT KRUGER!” Rose takes him into the corner to start and nails some loud chops, followed by a headlock takeover. Back up and Breeze nails a great dropkick to put Rose on the floor. That goes nowhere as Rose backdrops him to the floor and we take a break.
Back with Rose putting on a sleeper for a good while until Breeze fights out and kicks him in the chest. Breeze, wrestling like a face here, nails some running forearms in the corner but gets caught in a spinebuster, which Rose transitions into a Boston crab. Breeze crawls over to the ropes and comes back with the Beauty Shot for the pin at 12:01.
Result: Tyler Breeze b. Adam Rose – Beauty Shot (12:01)
Solomon Crowe is glad Joe was there last week and promises to be back and better than ever.
Dana Brooke has been at the Arnold Classic and will be back soon.
Eva Marie is brought to the stage for a chat and the fans do not want to see her. The YOU CAN’T WRESTLE chants stop her cold but she says she’ll wait. Eva was at Takeover to watch the great women’s wrestling and that’s why she’s here now. She wants to compete with the best and they’re right here in NXT.
Regal’s announcement is that on the big 4th of July show with Brock Lesnar in action, Balor will challenge Kevin Owens for the NXT Title in Japan, and it will air live on the WWE Network.
Carmella vs. Alexa Bliss
Carmella goes right at her with three straight takedowns and right hands every time. Bliss manages to drop her face first onto the buckle for two before cranking on a cravate. Back up and Carmella hits some running forearms, only to get caught in a rollup with a hand grabbing the ropes to give Bliss the pin at 3:34.
Result: Alexa Bliss b. Carmella – Rollup while grabbing the ropes (3:34)
Rhyno says he’s back to go after the top contender in Finn Balor. Tonight he’s a Gore away from being one steps closer to being NXT Champion.

Vaudevillains vs. Jason Jordan/Marcus Louis
The crazy Louis starts with Gotch as the fans are very happy to have the Vaudevillains back. It’s quickly off to English for a manly knee to the ribs (Fans: “THAT WAS MANLY!”) but Jordan comes in for a suplex to take over. We hit the reverse chinlock on English to slow things down. Louis tags himself in, much to Jordan’s annoyance, and puts on a chinlock of his own. English fights up and makes the hot tag to Gotch for a quick Whirling Dervish and the pin on Marcus at 5:16.
Result: Vaudevillains b. Jason Jordan/Marcus Louis – Whirling Dervish to Louis (5:16)
Video on Sasha Banks.
Balor is ready for Rhyno.
Finn Balor vs. Rhyno
Feeling out process to start until Rhyno just runs Balor over with a shoulder. Rhyno goes up top but gets kicked out to the floor as we take an early break. Back with Rhyno putting on a body scissors to slow Balor down. Rhyno mocks Balor’s signature pose before putting on a chinlock.
That goes nowhere as Finn comes back with a middle rope forearm but the reverse lifting DDT is countered into a spinebuster for two. Frustration is setting in for Rhyno and the Pele makes it even worse. The Sling Blade connects but the Coup de Grace misses. The Gore misses as well though and Balor grabs a quick rollup for the surprise pin at 12:10.
Result: Finn Balor b. Rhyno – Gore (12:10)
Rhyno Gores Balor on the stage to end the show.
Tyler Breeze b. Adam Rose – Beauty Shot
Alexa Bliss b. Carmella – Rollup while holding the ropes
Vaudevillains b. Jason Jordan/Marcus Louis – Whirling Dervish to Louis
