Intro Video
“Resistance” by Powerflo

Ring Area
Tommaso Ciampa heads to the ring. He takes a moment to appreciate his new entrance music, then he begins talking about Velveteen Dream. Ciampa says Dream has his attention, but Dream shouldn’t talk about things that are none of his business. Velveteen Dream comes out to the stage.

Dream doesn’t appreciate Ciampa’s “little threats.” He thinks the NXT Title deserves a real experience, not an angry bald man hiding behind his own insecurities. Ciampa says he may be an angry little bald man, but his title belt is very shiny. Ciampa knows Dream wants his title, but maybe Dream just isn’t tough enough.

Dream enters the ring and tells Ciampa that he is more man than Ciampa can handle. Dream says he can prove it to Ciampa if he agrees to a title match. Before Ciampa can respond, Nikki Cross comes out and heads to the ring.

Cross jumps around while the crowd chants “triple threat” and “Nikki knows a secret.” Cross listens to the NXT Title, speaks to it, then knocks the mic from Ciampa’s hand. She says she knows a secret, kicks the mic out of the ring when Ciampa goes for it, and then leaves the ring. Ciampa is left in the ring alone, clutching his title belt.

Match 1
Keith Lee vs Kona Reeves
(referee: DA Brewer)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Keith Lee wins via pinfall after the Supernova
Time: 3:59

Match Thoughts
Good match. Lee finally faced some adversity in this match, and it made him look even more impressive. I liked Reeves in the match as well (more his attitude than anything in his wrestling in particular). The match was short, but it was good for both men.

 

Video
Shayna Baszler gets pissed when she see how people can’t see that her loss to Kairi Sane was Baszler’s fault and not Kairi’s success.

Outside the Venue
Kairi Sane is excited to compete at Evolution, and she plans to beat Baszler again.

Backstage
Ricochet heads toward the ring area.

Backstage
William Regal wants to learn Nikki Cross’ secret, but right now Kassius Ohno is blocking Regal’s way into his own office. Kassius still wants to know when Regal’s “shiny new toy” is going to show up. Regal barely pays attention to Kassius as he walks by and enters his office. Nikki Cross walks up and laughs.

Clips of the growing feud between the Undisputed Era and the War Raiders.

 

Match 2
Triple Threat North American Title Match
Adam Cole vs Pete Dunne (UK Champ) vs Ricochet (NA Champ)
(referee: Drake Wuertz)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Ricochet pins Pete Dunne after a springboard 450 splash
Time: 18:29

Match Thoughts
Great match! After a disappointing end to the title versus title match, this definitely made up for it. There were multiple great sequences, and the match built to a very exciting final segment. Even though I has a strong suspicion about who was going to win, they still got me at least once on a near fall. I’ll definitely be watching this a few more times.

 

Show Impressions
This was one of those shows that was built around one match. THe match delivered, so it was a good show.

Match of the Night
