NXT Women’s Title Match Qualifier: Ember Moon vs. Ruby Riot vs. Sonya Deville

Ruby gets two after a series of kicks ending with a dropkick. Ember returns and Ruby takes both over with a head scissors, but Ember lands on her feet. They go at it to a stand still.

Ruby reaches the topes but with no rope break, she pulls herself to the apron. Sonya pulls her back and locks it in again. Ember sneaks to the top and comes off with the Eclipse on Sonya! Ember covers Ruby to win.

Earlier this week, the Undisputed Era caught up with Roderick Strong outside of the Performance Center. It seemed friendly, though it was security footage so there was no audio.

William Regal is interviewed about how we’ll determine the final participant in the Women’s Title match at TakeOver. The Iconic Duo interrupt. Billie tells Regal he looks great and expects Regal to put her in the qualifying match. Regal agrees, but says it’s a battle royal also including the other women who haven’t qualified. Billie’s eye roll and groan were perfect. Peyton asks Regal, “HOW COULD YOU?”

Aleister Black vs. Raul Mendoza

Right after the bell rings, Velveteen Dream appears and hops on the apron. He puts on Black’s jacket. Raul jumps Black and hits a chop. Black escapes a suplex but eats a running knee. Mendoza delivers a while corkscrew plancha as Dream watches. Inside, he uses a springboard swanton for two. Black catches a kick and starts in with his own. He sweeps Mendoza to the mat and starts another strike combo. Quebrada connects and Black Mask finishes this.

Winner: Aleister Black in 2:10

Black still refuses to acknowledge Velveteen Dream. Black finally looks at him as Dream leaves.

Time for a sitdown interview with Drew McIntyre. He’s asked about being NXT Champion and he says it’s weird to say out loud. He speaks about getting signed at 21 and things not turning out how he hoped. He lost his dream job and had to explain to his friends and family that it was over. Drew says he lost himself along the way. The fire was gone, but it returned and he worked his ass off to get back to the top. Zelenia Vega interrupts to take over the interview. She tells Drew he and Andrade Almas have a lot in common because they both fell hard and worked back towards the top. She tells him that there’s no threat bigger than Almas. She says he’s avoiding Almas. Drew knows what she’s doing. He’s had his hands full, but is up to fighting anyone, at any time. Drew tells Vega to talk to Regal if Almas wants a shot. She says the champ has the most pull with the GM, but Drew suggests Almas come with Vega next time if he wants a shot.

Kassius Ohno vs. Cezar Bononi

Bononi comes out with left hands to send Ohno reeling. Ohno retaliates with chops but runs into a dropkick for two. Ohno quickly escapes a chinlock and eats some knees. My feed skips around and for some reason, it won’t play that portion of the match. I come back to see Ohno miss a senton and run into a boot. Ohno sends Bononi to the apron and boots him off. He follows with the wrecking ball dropkick and sends Bononi back in. Another boot connects inside. Ohno hits the rolling elbow to the back of the head and wins.
