NXT held its live TV tapings at Full Sail University on Wednesday night for the remainder of episodes in August, and the beginning of September. Here’s everything that happened, and everything you need to know. You can read results from night one here. These episodes (in whatever form they take) will air on August 21, August 28, September 4, and September 11.
Please be aware that everything you read in the subsequent paragraphs is an actual, massive, legitimate spoiler for what will happen over the next several weeks of NXT television. You may read on only at your own risk. But if you’re the sort of person who just simply cannot wait until it happens on WWE Network to find out what happens next, congratulations! This post is for you!
– The tapings opened with a recap of NXT TakeOver: Toronto, which you can read about here.
– The Undisputed Era starts the show by complaining about how the North American and Tag Team Championship matches at TakeOver: Toronto turned out. Jordan Myles interrupts and announces that he’s cashing in the title shot he won for winning the NXT Breakout Tournament later in the night.
1. Damian Priest defeated Mansoor. Priest won with his version of Cross Rhodes.
2. Mia Yim defeated Vanessa Borne. Yim won with a Codebreaker version of Eat Defeat. After the match, Shayna Baszler offers Mia a spot in the Horsewomen. Mia attacks instead of joining them, and gets beaten down.
– A Keith Lee/Dominic Dijakovic video package aired including footage from EVOLVE.
3. Killian Dain defeated Matt Riddle. Dain won a competitive match after three Vader Bombs. After the match the brawl continued, with Dain hitting a senton onto a ladder laid across Riddle on the floor.
4. Io Shirai defeated Cami Fields. Squash win for Io. After the match, she tries to attack Fields with a kendo stick until Candice LeRae makes the save.
5. Dominik Dijakovic defeated Keith Lee. Said to be a great match. Lee hit a Spanish Fly at one point, but Dijakovic ultimately won with Feast Your Eyes.
– A Shayna Baszler was interrupted by Rhea Ripley. Ripley says Shayna’s beaten everyone but hasn’t beaten her, and they have a staredown.
6. Breezango defeated Chase Parker and Matt Martel, the new names for Team 3.0.
7. Bianca Belair defeated Taynara Conti. Belair won with the KOD.
8. NXT Championship Match: Adam Cole (c) defeated Jordan Myles. Cole retained after a pair of superkicks and the Last Shot.
9. Damian Priest defeated Boa.
– Johnny Gargano cut a promo, but was interrupted by Shane Thorne. Thorne told Gargano to take a bow and leave. Gargano took a bow, but announced that he’s not leaving, and kicked Thorne. Looks like Gargano’s staying in NXT for the time being.
10. Velveteen Dream defeats Kona Reeves. After the match, Roderick Strong set Dream’s couch on fire to get his attention.

11. Pete Dunne defeated Angel Garza. Dunne won by submission with an armbar while snapping Garza’s fingers.
12. Cameron Grimes defeated Raul Mendoza with a double stomp.
13. Shayna Baszler defeated Rhea Ripley by disqualification in a non-title match. Baszler grabbed a chair while Ripley fought off the Horsewomen, but Ripley took the chair and used it herself, drawing a DQ. Ripley then sat in the chair and challenged Baszler again.
14. NXT Tag Team Championship Match: Undisputed Era defeated the Street Profits (c). Montez Ford missed a frog splash, and UE were able to hit the High-Low on him to win the match. Fish and O’Reilly are your new NXT Tag Team Champions. Street Profits got a “thank you” send off from Full Sail after the match.
