No Way Jose was attacked by Eric Young at Axxess. He was stretched off and pulled from the eight-person tag team match. The match will now be 3 vs. 4. We here Triple H’s voice over as he talks about NXT returning home. Kassius Ohno appears to replace No Way Jose.
Sanity (Eric Young, Alexander Wolfe, Killian Dain, and Nikki Cross) vs. Tye Dillinger, Ruby Riot, Roderick Strong and Kassius Ohno
Nikki and Ruby start, tearing into each other. Sanity starts working over Ohno in their corner. Strong gets in and starts hitting different types of backbreakers. Wolf with a German suplex to stop Strong. Dain uses his power to keep Strong from making a tag. Tye wants in, but Sanity keep Strong on their side of the ring. Lots of talk about how Tye should have finished months ago. Young misses running knees into the corner and Tye is tagged in, who starts taking out all of Sanity. Tye with a DDT to Wolfe. Nikki tries to get in before Ruby spears her out of the ring. Tye flies through the ropes. Dain slams Ohno against the apron. Ruby tries to fly but gets tangle with Nikki. The legal men, Tye and Young are back in the ring and briefly brawl. Nikki jumps on Strong’s back and Ruby on Dain’s back. The numbers are too much for Tye. He gets caught by Dain for a three count.
Andrade Almas vs. Aleister Black
Aleister sort of sits up in his entrance and slowly walks to the ring. Arena is black and rock music is playing. They mention how he’s between heaven and hell; also, he’s about finding true will. Crowd doesn’t know what to think. Bit of chain wrestling mixed with stiff shots by Black. They mention Black’s MMA history. Almas is on the outside. Black jumps towards the rope, only to change his mind with a sitting moonsault back in the ring. Interesting spot, serves little purpose and extremely dangerous looking. Almas gets Black caught in an armbar on the ropes. Lots of stiff shots by Black to send Almas to the outside. Black with a moonsault and the crowd chants NXT. Almas keeps working on the arm. Both throw leg kicks and hit the canvas. Almas runs into an axe kick. Black picks Almas up with his foot; like in a video game. Black Mass, which a spinning wheel kick, hits for a three count.
Winner: Aleister Black
Nigel McGuinness stated Ring Of Honor instead of NXT when hyping Black’s future. Whoops.
