I'm here at Full Sail Live in Winter Park, FL for NXT’s TV tapings tonight.

- Dark Match: Oney Lorcan beat Toni Sabbatelli

Oney reversed a suplex and got the pin.

**********

- Shinsuke Nakamura beat Wesley Blake after hitting the Kinshasa for the pin and win.

Post match, William Regal announces Joe vs. Nakamura for TakeOver: Brooklyn.

- Billie Kay beat Santana Garrett after hitting a big boot for the pin and win.

- TM61 beat Rob Rizen and Rich Nailz after hitting a double team spinebuster finish

No Way Jose

- No Way Jose beat Steve Cutler after the Fiesta Fireball and half nelson slam for the win.

Post match, Jose calls out Austin Aries and says he is going to whoop his ass.

- Kota Ibushi beat Buddy Murphy

Amazing reaction for Kota, won it with a big powerbomb.

- In ring promo with NXT Champion Samoa Joe saying he will not face Shinsuke Nakamura at TakeOver Brooklyn. William Regal says if Joe doesn't, he will strip him of the title. Joe says fine, he will face Nakamura and he will decimate him. That brings out the challenger out for an intense staredown.

- Hideo Itami def. Sean Maluta (Cruiserweight Classic) with a running kick.

- NXT Women's Champion Asuka submitted Aliyah with the Asuka Lock.

Bayley was at ringside for a closer look. Asuka wouldn't let go of the submission, so Bayley made the save.

- In ring promo with Bobby Roode who slowly turned heel on the crowd. It was excellent. He said he looks like a superstar and dresses like a superstar, and that he wants to take NXT to the next level and someday, he won't see all of us losers in the crowd. “This is the new NXT!" he exclaimed.

- NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival beat TM61

This was a great match that got a lot of time. Scott Dawson hit a DDT for the win. Post match, they ran down everyone they've ever beat until Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano came out. There was some funny comedy here as they called Revival "Ole and Arn", saying they don't care if they beat the Hollywood Blondes, Kermit and Miss Piggy, or even Pikachu...which got a Pokemon chant.

They then said Revival had not beaten them. The teams brawled and Johnny got a visual pin as Ciampa counted, and they picked up the titles.

- Mojo Rawley vs. Chris Atkins didn't kick off as Samoa Joe destroyed both men. Mojo tried to fight back but Joe brawled him away.

Bayley vs. Asuka

- We got a contract signing for Bayley vs Asuka to set up the TakeOver match in Brooklyn.

- The Authors Of Pain beat Rob Rizen and Rich Nailz

This was a quick squash before TM61 ran down, but were handled by the AOP. This prompted American Alpha to make the save to a huge reaction.

- Andrade cien Almas beat Angelo Dawkins after hitting the running knees with a new DDT finish.

Post match, Bobby Roode was out to inform Andrade that they have a match in Brooklyn and it will be "glorious".

- Billie Kay beat Liv Morgan after hitting the big boot for the pin and win.

- Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano beat Tucker Knight and Patrick Clark after hitting double superkicks for the win.

Hideo Itami

- Hideo Itami beat Mustafa Ali after hitting the running kick for the pin and win. Itami looked good here. 

- Carmella, Liv Morgan, and Nikki Glencross beat Mandy Rose, Daria, and Alexa Bliss

Action was all over the place, Carmella was able to get Mandy in the Code Of Silence for the win.

- NXT Champion Samoa Joe beat Mojo Rawley

This was a mean guy match that Joe finished after he locked in the Koji clutch. Post match, Joe continues to rough up Mojo until refs and security got involved. 

Nakamura made his way down and while Joe was being held back, he did the Got Your Nose bit to loud laughs and a pop. We got "Let Them Fight" chants. Shinsuke left Joe fuming. After Shinsuke left, Joe destroyed security and ended the go home show holding the title.
