This pretty good episode of SmackDown set up two title matches, one surprising and one not so much.
This edition of NXT was taped before Takeover: Orlando, and it very much felt like a pre-show. The matches were short, and the show was packed with clips and interviews from the big event. Not the best episode of NXT, but there’s still a little fun to be had here.
The 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic starts with one squash and one good match, Samoa Joe ruins Dan Matha’s debut, Patrick Clark debut’s a new look when he faces Rich Swann, and Peyton Royce beats up a new girl with her friend Billie Kay by her side.
The first round of the tournament ends with a great, emotional match between tag team partners Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa.
