NXT TakeOver: Chicago Results:
1. Roderick Strong defeated Eric Young. Strong knocked Young off the top rope to take out the members of SAnitY at ringside, then hit a jumping knee strike and a suplex backbreaker to win the match.
2. United Kingdom Championship Match: Pete Dunne defeated Tyler Bate (c). Jim Ross made a guest appearance to call the match. Dunne hit Bate in the face with an elbow during a dive to the outside, then rolled him back in and connected with the Bitter End pump-handle reverse STO to win. Pete Dunne is the new United Kingdom Champion.
3. Triple Threat Match for the NXT Women’s Championship: Asuka (c) defeated Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross. Riot hit a wind-up overhead kick on Cross and went for the cover, but Asuka broke it up with a running kick to Riot. Asuka then pinned both of her opponents to retain the championship.
4. NXT Championship Match: Bobby Roode (c) defeated Hideo Itami. Itami connected with a GTS, but Roode fell out of the ring. Itami went for a second GTS, which Roode countered into a sunset flip. He went for a third, which Roode countered into rolling Glorious DDTs to pick up the win and retain the championship.
5. NXT Tag Team Championship Ladder Match Match: Authors Of Pain (c) defeated #DIY. DIY had their hands on the belts, but the Authors of Pain pulled the ladder out from under them. The Authors then pulled them down and hit a Super Collider before climbing and pulling down — and retaining — the Tag Team Championship belts.
After the match, just as the show was going off the air, Ciampa turned on Gargano, tossing him into the stage screen and kneeing him in the face multiple times. Ciampa then pulled Gargano onto the announce table and slammed him off it and the stage.
