- Mojo Rawley defeated Wesley Blake

Blake got a good reaction as he is from San Antonio, but that quickly died as the crowd became firmly behind Rawley. Rawley got the win with a sick looking running haymaker.

- Bayley & Carmella defeated Daria Berenato & Mandy Rose

Bayley and Carmella won after Bayley hit the Bayley-to-Belly. Good match, and I was surprised by how good the heels were.

- Austin Aries defeated Tommaso Ciampa

This was a great match. The crowd chanted for No Way Jose and they both stopped to look at us, then Ciampa started doing No Way Jose's dance. Aries got the win with his feet on the ropes. He was great playing his usual heel role. The crowd started to chant for Ciampa when it was over, as that was a hell of a match.

- Finn Balor & Hideo Itami defeated NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival in a non-title match

Balor got the biggest pop of the night to this point, but the Revival got a good reaction too. Another really good match. Balor won with the Coup de Grace. A big welcome back chant for Hideo broke out, followed by the crowd thanking Balor as he does his final matches in NXT. Balor bowed to the audience.

- Johnny Gargano defeated Buddy Murphy

Gargano is really over and he won with the crossface in another good match.

- NXT Women's Champion Asuka defeated Nia Jax to retain her title

Asuka won with a kick to Jax's face. Jax is improving a lot.

- Shinsuke Nakamura & Andrade "Cien" Almas defeated NXT Champion Samoa Joe & Bobby Roode

Nakamura came out to the biggest pop of night, even surpassing Balor. He has great music and a great entrance. The match did not disappoint. Nakamura and Joe went at it with some stiff strikes. Nakamura hit the Kinshasa on Roode for the win.

Nakamura spoke some Spanish and thanked everyone for coming.

A great event, I've been coming to WWE events for over 30 years and this is in the top five. Everyone worked really hard.
