The referee who officiated the match between Sami Zayn and Corey Graves explained his decision to stop the match, the week before. Graves was then interviewed. He advised Zayn to rest up as they were just getting started.
Sasha Banks vs Bayley
Bayley hit Sasha with a spinning elbow from the top rope. As she ran at Banks, she was met with a boot. In a quick turn of events, Bayley hit Banks with a belly to belly suplex and picked up the win.
Mojo Rawley vs Sylvester Lefort
Rawley quickly disposed of his opponent by winding Lefort with some big splashes and a ‘Hyperdrive’ to seal the deal.
After the match, Brodus Clay came to the ring and attacked Sylvester.Clay got on the mic and started saying that Adrian Neville wasn’t in his league and that he was the main event player on NXT. Neville said that he had wasted his opportunities in the WWE. They stared face to face, but Brodus Clay backed down.
As Oliver Grey was about to be interviewed, Camacho showed up in a suit. He said that he and Adam Rose were completely different and that he had sacrificed everything to get where he is. Grey, aggravated by the interruption challenged Camacho to a match the following week.
Bo Dallas entered the ring and said appealed to the “Bo-lievers” to occupy NXT as Daniel Bryan had done on RAW and is now WWE World Heavyweight Champion. Bo said that he deserved a shot. The audience chanted “NO”. Dallas yelled at fans after not hearing what he wanted. JBL came out and told Bo that it was the worst attempt to take over a show that he had ever seen. He then made a match between Dallas and Justin Gabriel.
Justin Gabriel vs Bo Dallas
Gabriel overestimated his chances of success and missed a springboard dive. Dallas took advantage of the opportunity and beat Justin with a double arm DDT.
NXT went off the air as Dallas reigned supreme.

Kofi Kingston vs Titus O’Neil
Kofi dropkicked Titus and levelled him with a leaping clothesline. Kofi hit the ‘Boom Drop’ on Titus O’Neil. He went for ‘Trouble in Paradise’ but ran into an uppercut. Kofi landed a flying cross body but seemed to injure himself. The former ‘Primetime Player’ gained some steam and hit the ‘Clash of the Titus’ for the victory.
