NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II Results:
1. Austin Aries defeated No Way Jose. After a solid back-and-forth match, Jose fell victim to a sunset flip powerbomb into the Last Chancery. Aries continued to apply the submission post-match, which resulted in a run-in from Hideo Itami. The two brawled, and Itami hit Aries with a Go To Sleep.
2. Ember Moon defeated Billie Kay. The debuting Moon made quick work of Billie Kay, pinning her following a diving corkscrew stunner off the top rope.
3. Bobby Roode defeated Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas. Before the match, Roode entered the arena via a fully extended cherry picker. It was glorious. He pinned Almas after connecting with the Glorious Bomb.
Triple H unveiled the trophy that will be awarded to whoever is crowned the winner of the Cruiserweight Classic on September 14. It looked like…well, kind of sort of NSFW.
4. NXT Tag Team Championship Match: The Revival (c) defeated Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa. Scott Dawson made Johnny Gargano submit to a figure four leg lock after a lengthy match with a number of impressive false finishes.
5. NXT Women’s Championship Match: Asuka (c) defeated Bayley. Asuka retained her championship by kicking Bayley’s head off. Afterward, Bayley hugged the other three members of the Four Horsewomen and Izzy while receiving an extended standing ovation from the sold-out crowd inside the Barclays Center.
6. NXT Championship Match: Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Samoa Joe (c). Nakamura won his first NXT Championship after two straight Kinshasas to Samoa Joe.
