Last week at the Performance Center, Tino Sabatelli and Riddick Moss confronted Johnny Gargano and said they were the team that basically broke up #DIY. Gargano noted how they watched TakeOver from their couches and said he’d face one of them this week.

No Way Jose is interviewed about his issues with Lars Sullivan. Jose says he’s a little crazy and someone needs to teach him a lesson. He wants to be that guy, so he challenges him for next week.

Johnny Gargano vs. Riddick MOss w/ Tino Sabatelli

Big “Johnny Wrestling” chants. Moss starts hot, throwing Gargano around following a shoulder block. He has a clear power advantage. Gargano hops over him ad tries a rana, but Moss blocks and gets him on his shoulders. Gargano slips free, but eats a big back elbow. He delivers knee strikes and has control going into commercial. Returning, Moss works an abdominal stretch. Gargano fights free but eats a bunch of corner shoulder blocks and punches. Gargano gets whipped into the corner several times. Moss shouts “you’re nothing without DIY” and Gargano responds with forearms. He fires off a bunch, hops over Moss and delivers the rolling kick. A clothesline sends Moss over the top and Gargano follows with a dropkick. Gargano nails a somersault off the apron. Tino tries getting involved, but gets kicked. That does allow Moss to get in a shot, but Gargano evades his next move and spins into the Gargano Escape. Moss reaches the ropes to survive. Gargano looks on in disbelief and backs away after breaking the count at 4. He looks at his hands in shock, giving Moss the chance to clothesline him. Moss hits a fallaway slam and Gargano goes to the apron. He kicks an intervening Tino again and nails the slingshot spear to beat Moss.

Winner: Johnny Gargano in 6:44 [*1/2]

The Ealy Brothers vs. The Street Profits

Angelo starts with Yuriel. They lock up and Yuriel uses his power to back him in the corner. He does it again and steals Angelo’s headband, which got a ton of heat. Angelo laid him out with a right hand and tagged out. They hit their tandem dropkick/leg drop spot, and then busted out the old World Greatest Tag Team spot leap frog spot on both Ealy Brothers. They stop to do a handshake, allowing the Ealy Brothers to get in a bit of offense. Ford avoids their grasp and tags in Angelo, who hits a string of dropkicks and spinning elbows. He nails the spinning splash on both and tags out. Spinebuster by Dawkins and frog splash from Ford is enough.

Winners: The Street Profits in 2:48

A special farewell video package for Asuka airs, with several people putting her over like crazy. Corey Graves calls her the scariest star in NXT, while Bayley and others mention how tough she is.

After the video, William Regal was interviewed about plans for the future of the division. Regal says he’s figuring things out and he’ll let us know in the coming weeks about how a new Women’s Champion will be determined.

Three weeks ago, Wolfgang and Pete Dunne beat Trent Seven and Tyler Bate, when Wolfgang pinned Bate. Wolfgang earned himself a shot at the UK Title with that.

Next week, Aleister Black will speak for the first time.
