ADAM COLE VS SEAN MALUTA:

Maluta with a rollup for a 1 count, Backslide for a 1 count, he goes for a dive, but Cole blasts him with a Superkick, pulls the knee pad down then finishes Maluta with The Last Shot for the win

WINNER: ADAM COLE

Cole says he’s the most buzz-worthy superstar on any brand and that’s because of what he gets done in the ring, he defends his title across all of North America and even the UK, this kid tonight was looking for an opportunity so Cole give him one. So if anyone

Enter Ricochet, he says he owes Cole an apology, he didn’t even run from his competition, granted it was a non-title match against a guy whose name Cole can’t even remember. He says since joining NXT, Cole has taken the company by storm, but since becoming Champion the man who claims to shock the system, had done nothing but become a coward, but that’s just Ricochet’ opinion, Cole can change his mind though to prove how good he is by having a match for the North American Championship at TakeOver Brooklyn IV against Ricochet unless he was right about Cole

Cole says he is so good which is why he’s not going to diminish himself by fighting Ricochet in Brooklyn. Ricochet says to go ahead and leave just like the coward he thought Cole was

O’Reilly & Strong show up behind Cole and have his back, but behind them they’re being stalked by War Raiders they back The ERA up, but The ERA is attacked by Moustache Mountain

Regal has the contract signing for Baszler/Kairi in Brooklyn, he brings up it’s a re-match from last year’s finals of Mae Young Classic. Shayna says she’s beaten Kairi since then, she has a killer instinct now that she didn’t then, she goes straight for the jugular which is why she’s at the top of the division while Kairi hasn’t done anything since. Kairi doesn’t say a word and just signs the contract then speaks: she knows & Shayna knows it. Kairi can beat her. Shayna says she’s living in a fantasy world just like every woman in that locker room pretending to have what it takes: Dakota pretending to be tough, Candice who should be at home as a wife & a homemaker & Kairi pretending that she’s a pirate going after a treasure. Kairi says she knows it & Shayna knows it in Brooklyn Kairi will beat her. Shayna signs the contract & tells Kairi she doesn’t have to listend to her now, but she will in Brooklyn when she hears & still NXT Women’s Champion and storms off. Kairi re-iterates that they both know Kairi can beat Shayna

Next week EC3 vs Kona Reeves

TENILLA PRICE VS LACEY EVANS:

Price goes for a Handspring in the corner, but Lacey blasts her with The Woman’s Right for the win

WINNER: LACEY EVANS

Bianca Belair was asked about missing the match last week, she says she’s hurt, but shouldn’t be working 3 times harder because she’s undefeated and when she comes back she’s going to get what she deserves she re-iterates that several times before walking off

Candice confronts Shanya over her comments and asked if she’s so tough why doesn’t she say those things to her face, The Deebious One holds her back telling her now’s not the time. Candice says now may not be the time, she WILL get Baszler in the ring & we’ll see just how tough she is
