We’re back at Full Sail this week and things should be getting interesting again in a hurry. The next Takeover has been scheduled for June 8 so they only have about a month to get wherever we’re heading. Samoa Joe is the new NXT Champion and tonight we may find out who he’s facing next. Let’s get to it.
Tessa Blanchard vs. Nia Jax
Nia throws her around a bit and drops the leg for the pin at 1:09.
Result: Nia Jax b. Tessa Blanchard – Legdrop (1:09)
Tye Dillinger vs. Austin Aries
Dillinger shoulders him down and shows Aries a 10 to start but Aries comes back with some armdrags into an armbar. We get the BOTH THESE GUYS chant as Dillinger starts in on the back with a few stomps and a hard whip into the corner for two. Aries claps his hands around Tye’s ears before sending him outside for the corkscrew dive. Tye raises a boot to block a dropkick and gets two off a fireman’s carry slam onto his knee. That’s fine with Austin as he forearms Tye in the face and hits a 450 for the pin at 4:37.
Result: Austin Aries b. Tye Dillinger – 450 Splash (4:37)
Revival vs. Hype Bros
Ryder and Dash get things going and I’ll give you two guesses as to who the fans are behind. Zack has to fight both of them off and is quickly pulled into the wrong corner for a tag to Dawson who pounds Ryder down. Dash puts on a cobra clutch as Corey continues his eternal hatred of all things Mojo Rawley by insulting his trunks. The hold is pretty easily broken and Ryder dives over for the hot tag. Mojo cleans a little bit of the house before walking into the Shatter Machine for the pin at 4:12.
Result: Revival b. Hype Bros – Shatter Machine to Rawley (4:12)
Alex Riley isn’t worried about Shinsuke Nakamura next week because he’s so small. Riley promises to be a maniac next week.
No Way Jose vs. Noah Potjes
The fans are WAY into Jose with Phillips saying it’s contagious. Graves: “So is the flu.” Jose dances a lot and mocks swinging a bat. A few armdrags set up the baseball punch and a quick full nelson slam puts Noah away at 2:17.
Result: No Way Jose b. Noah Potjes – Full nelson slam (2:17)
Aries says that was a perfect 20 but something seems a bit off. He’s been flying under the radar since he’s been here but that’s all about to change. Now if you’ll excuse him, he has a banana to eat.

Samoa Joe vs. Eric Young
Non-title. Joe works on the arm to start but they opt to just trade big shots to the face instead. A swinging neckbreaker gets one on Joe but he throws Eric out to the floor for a big suicide dive as we take a break. Back with Young eating a hard elbow to the jaw and the enziguri out of the corner. We hit the nerve hold as things slow down a bit.
Joe gets two more off a backsplash before elbowing Young’s head off to stop a comeback bid. Eric does the slide between Joe’s legs and scores with a running forearm, followed by the top rope elbow for two. The release Rock Bottom out of the corner plants Eric though and it’s the Muscle Buster into the Koquina Clutch for the submission at 14:20.
Result: Samoa Joe b. Eric Young – Koquina Clutch (14:20)
Nia Jax b. Tessa Blanchard – Legdrop
Austin Aries b. Tye Dillinger – 450 splash
Revival b. Hype Bros – Shatter Machine to Rawley
No Way Jose b. Noah Potjes – Full nelson slam
Samoa Joe b. Eric Young – Koquina Clutch
