We go to commercial.

We are back and NXT Men's Champion Tommaso Ciampa makes his way to the ring.

Ciampa tells the title belt he loves it and then he listened to what it has to say.  

Ciampa says that music is a personal message from the champ to each and every one of you.  That music is his way of saying to you in the most polite way, he knows how.  He has heard the whispers and he has seen the people pointing their finger.  They know who took out Aleister Black.  It was Ciampa.  Ciampa asks what do you base this on.  Your imagination?  He does not live in make believe, he is in the real world and he bases it on facts.  When he confronts someone he does it in front of an audience.  When he wants to do anything, he will do it in front of the biggest stage because he wants everyone to see their master work.

Ciampa says he will not stand in the ring and lie to you because the champ never lies.  Ciampa says he had all of the intentions in the world of taking out Aleister Black before Takeover, but someone beat him to the punch.  Ciampa says he wants to know who that somebody might be.  If he knew who it was, he would pat him or her on the back and tell them 'job well done'.   Do not confuse things for one second.  Even if Aleister Black had made it to Takeover Brooklyn, the result would have been the same.  Gargano loses.  Black loses.  He wins.

Ciampa says the title has something it would him to tell all of you.  It thanks Tommaso and says it felt good to be back in the main event of Takeover.  Ciampa says he is the champion and he talks the talk and walks the walk.  When he says he will do something, he does it.  That is what makes Tommaso Ciampa the greatest success story in NXT.  That is what makes Tommaso Ciampa YOUR NXT Champion.

Ciampa says he has one final thing he would like to address and he wants everybody to listen.  The fact is that you want to be a success.  If you want to be a winner.  If you want to be a champion.  Follow the lead of Tommaso Ciampa.

Ciampa leaves the ring and he takes a Gargano sign from a fan in the front row.

We go to commercial.

Match Number Two:  Shayna Baszler versus Violet Payne

Baszler with a take down and she punches Payne.  Baszler with a round kick to the chest and then she works on the wrist and manipulates it into unnatural positions.  Baszler stands on the hand and then stomps on the elbow.  Baszler with the Kirifuda Clutch and Payne taps out.

Winner:  Shayna Baszler

After the match, Baszler refuses to release the hold until she can apply more damage to Payne.

Baszler tries to get Payne to get up by slapping her to wake her up and then Baszler leaves the ring.

Baszler returns to the ring and reapplies the Kirifuda Clutch.  More officials come to the ring to point for Shayna to leave but that is not going to work and Baszler applies the Kirifuda Clutch one more time.

Baszler throws Payne to the floor and then goes to the back.

We have some footage of a confrontation outside Full Sail where Heavy Machinery were talking about their top suspect.  They talk about Tommaso Ciampa and they say they don't believe him. 

Ciampa shows up and says if you mention his name, say it with respect.  Otis tells Ciampa if he wants to get it on, they can get it on.

William Regal tells them this is not happening now.  William tells Ciampa he wants to see him in his office.  If they want to fight, they can do it another time.

Nikki Cross plays with some scaffolding while Bianca Belair does some push upsto get ready for their match.

We go to commercial.

We are back and Roderick Strong says he has to get something off his chest.  The War Raiders say that they can run but they cannot hide.  Strong says they are too famous to hide from anyone.  Kyle calls them the Sneak Attack Raiders and says that they are a few hundred years late making a fashion statement.  Fish wants to know where it is in the Viking papers that you hide before you attack.

Adam Cole mentions the match between Pete Dunne and RIcochet and calls it the Adam Cole Invitational because the winner will face him and lose the titles.  Adam says it is a review session next week.  None of them are on the level of the Undisputed Era.

Match Number Three:  Raul Mendoza versus Lars Sullivan

Raul avoids Lars on the initial lock up attempt.  Lars sends Raul into the turnbuckles but Raul escapes and hits a drop kick followed by kicks to the leg and chest.  Mendoza with a springboard round kick but Lars sends Raul to the apron.  Raul with an enzuigiri from the apron but Lars with a biel sending Raul back into the ring.  Lars biels Raul across the ring.  Lars with another biel as he sends Raul across the ring again.

Lars with a splash into the corner and then he tosses Raul across the ring again.  Raul with a chop but Lars with a clothesline to the side of the head.  Lras works on the neck and tries to compress the skull.   Raul with elbows and a jaw breaker to get out of the hold.  Lars runs into boots and then he moves when Sullivan goes for a shoulder into the corner and Lars hits the ring post.  Raul with kicks to the leg.  Lars with an Irish whip and Raul goes to the apron and hits an enzuigiri.

Winner:  Lars Sullivan

We take a look back at what happened when Ricochet and Pete Dunne faced the Undisputed Era a few weeks ago.

Pete Dunne was asked about Ricochet and their match next week.  Pete says his mindset is fine.  What happened two weeks ago was completely Ricochet's fault.  He got involved with Undisputed Era but Ricochet has a title that he wants.  Pete says that Ricochet has been champ for five minutes while he is the longest reigning champion.  He says he needs to find a way to fit both belts into his bags.

Ricochet is asked about Pete Dunne's comments.  Ricochet says he wants Pete to think that he doesn't have what it takes to retain his title in these high pressure situations.  Ricochet has been in high pressure situations his entire career.  Pete is another mountain he has to climb and another hurdle he has to leap over.  It does not matter how long you are champion and Pete will find out when he retains the North American Title and he will walk out as the UK champion.

We go to commercial.

We have a video package for the Forgotten Sons.  They mention being thrown aside and abandoned like garbage.  They are not alone.  They will be heard.  They were discarded once, but they will never be forgotten again.

We take a look at an incident between Aliyah and Dakota Kai when Lacey Evans stops by and so does Deonna Purrazzo.  Dakota and Deonna want to get it resolved now, but Lacey says they will have to wait.  

We are told that the match will happen next week.

William Regal is still investigating the attack on Aleister Black and he is done with Kairi Sane. 

Kassius Ohno enters and he gives his perspective on the attack.  Regal says he does not have to talk to him about this.

Ohno says Regal talked to Lars Sullivan and Heavy Machinery.  Is he invisible.  Regal says that Kairi Sane gave Ohno an alibi.  Regal asks Ohno about the perturbed look on his face.

Ohno says he was not perturbed.  If you paid attention to him lately, you would know that he was always perturbed.  You would be too if you came back to NXT as the hottest free agent only to be forgotten.  Kassius mentions how many people have come in and passed him.  Does he have to get a ticket to sit in the front row to be noticed?  He tells Regal to find him when his newest shiny toy shows up and he will deal with him . . . bro.

Match Number Four:  Bianca Belair versus Nikki Cross

The bell rings and Bianca wants Nikki to fight her.  Nikki crawls out of the corner for a moment.  Nikki shimmies to the crowd's chants.  They lock up and Biance sends Nikki to the mat and she likes it.  Nikki waves at Belair and crawls through her legs.  Cross screams and Belair falls back to the mat.  Nikki with a waist lock and Bianca with a shoulder tackle.  Belair with a handspring over Nikki and Nikki applauds her performance.  Cross with a monkey flip and head scissors take down.
