They're showing videos before the show starts. Every time time Roman Reigns is show, he got booed.

- No Way Jose beat Angelo Dawkins in a fun opener

- Elias Samson vs. Andrade Cien Almas ended when Samson legit hurt his ankle. The ref stopped the match, but Almas refused to have his arm raised. Samson got a supportive "Drifter" chant from the fans as he was being led out.

- Tye Dillinger beat Tino Sabatelli in a decent match. Tino seemed nervous, but looked okay.

- NXT Tag Champions American Alpha beat The Revival to retain. Great, great match, and exactly what you'd expect from these guys. Gable and Jordan got huge pops for everything they did.

- Nakamura vs. Buddy Murphy was after intermission. Nakamura got an absolutely deafening reaction when he came out. The match was good as Murphy is underrated. Nakamura won with the Kinshasa.

- Carmella and Bayley beat Peyton Royce & Darla. Fun match, but not much to it. Bayley was very over.

- NXT Champion Samoa joe beat Finn Balor. Good match, ended with Joe pinning Balor with his feet on the ropes. Balor sent Joe packing afterward to send the crowd home happy.
