Welcome to's coverage of NXT Takeover Brooklyn IV from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.  

In addition to the live play by play coverage, make sure to check out Dave Scherer's blog, preview audio, live thoughts, the Tip Sheet, post game audios, and more.

Your host is Charly Caruso and she is joined by Sam Roberts and Pat McAfee.

Sam talks about some of the match that have taken place at the Takeover shows in Brooklyn.

Charly mentions the injury suffered by Aleister Black and we take a look at the Who Attacked Aleister Black roster run down.

We also see some new surveillance video from the attack.  We also see an Instagram post from Aleister Black suggesting that he is coming for revenge.

Sam says that Black was sending a message to the entire roster.  

We go to Mike Rome outside the arena.

We take a look at the NXT Tag Team Championship Match.

We see Mustache Mountain winning the Tag Titles at Royal Albert Hall.  We then take a look at the Undisputed Era winning the tag titles back at Full Sail.

We see Cathy Kelley with the Undisputed Era earlier today.  They are asked if they thought they can leave this show without any titles.  Kyle says it was a year ago, they shocked the system and they will do it again tonight.  Roderick says they will show the world that they are on another level.  Adam says that Ricochet is good and can be great, but he is not special.  The titles are going nowhere.

Sam says that Mustache Mountain knows how to beat Undisputed Era.  Pat says it feels like the Undisputed Era are on a roll but he is looking forward to seeing Mustache Mountain win the titles.

Sam picks Mustache Mountain to win.  Pat goes with the Mustache Bearded Guys.

We go to commercial.

We are back with a look at EC3 versus Velveteen Dream.  We have a video package.

The Dream says he can hear the people buzzing about what the next experience is going to be.  EC3 says Dream claims the people are buzzing about the next experience.  Dream mentions Royal Albert Hall and he says he has no memory of that.  Dream says that instead of basking in the experience, you made an enemy.  Dream says he will embarrass EC3 in Brooklyn.  EC3 says Dream will realize the only experience is NX3.  Dream says it will be Dream Over.

Sam and Pat make their predictions.

We have a video package for the NXT North American Championship Match.

Ricochet is in the back and he joins the panel.  

Charly asks Ricochet about finally getting his hands on Adam Cole and if he is nervous.  Ricochet says he has been working on this his entire career.  He says he has been begging Adam Cole for this match because he knows he can win.  Sam asks if Ricochet is as special as Adam Cole.  Ricochet says that Adam Cole and the Undisputed Era are on a different level, but Ricochet says he is on a higher level than them.  Ricochet says he has some pressure with this being his first title match but he is prepared for it and he will treat this the way he treats all matches.  Ricochet says he has seen Adam hiding behind the title but Ricochet says that Adam has not been making the North American title as prestigious it can be.  Ricochet says he will return the prestige to the title.

Kairi Sane is shown in the back.

Shayna Baszler is shown walking in the back with Marina Shafir and Jessamyne Duke.

We go to commercial.

We go to Mauro Ranallo, Percy Watson, and NIgel McGuinness to talk about the matches on the special.

We take a look at the NXT Women's Championship Match with a video package.

We return to the panel and they talk about how much Shayna Baszler has improved.  Sam suggests that maybe Kairi will change up her look and appearance for tonight.  Sam predicts a win for Shayna and Pat agrees.

Mike Rome is now inside the arena with fans.

We see Johnny Gargano arriving in the building.

We also see Tommaso Ciampa arriving at the building.

We go to commercial.

We are back and we take a look at the NXT Men's Championship Match and all of the controversy over Aleister Black's attack.

NXT General Manager William Regal has joined the panel.

Regal is asked about any updates.  William says he spoke to Undisputed Era and they are no longer suspects.  That is all that he has at this point.  There is so much to study and take in.  When he knows, everyone else will know.

William says that they could lose a key member of this roster depending on the result of the investigation.  It can change the course of WWE.  Sam asks if William is worried that Aleister Black will take things into his own hands.  William says he has to deal with all of this to make sure that everyone knows the result of this investigation.

Sam says Gargano is too emotional and too angry so Ciampa wins.
