Apparently, defeating Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II wasn’t enough for The Revival. With Johnny Wrestling at home recovering from a leg injury, Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson pounced on an unsuspecting Ciampa as he was being interviewed backstage.

The vicious attack moved out to the arena floor and eventually the ring as the NXT Tag Team Champions again proved they are the “top guys” by laying out Ciampa in dominating fashion.


Steve Cutler def. Kenneth Crawford

WWE NXT: August 31, 2016

Two of NXT’s up-and-coming competitors battled it out as Steve Cutler clashed with Kenneth Crawford. The high-flying Crawford showcased some spectacular athletic maneuvers, but it was the hard-hitting Cutler who picked up the win with a fisherman Michinoku Driver.


No Way Jose def. Angelo Dawkins

WWE NXT: August 31, 2016

Despite losing a grueling battle against Austin Aries at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn II, it appears No Way Jose is back on track. The fun-loving Superstar showed it’s not all fun and games, as he turned the fiesta into a fight against Angelo Dawkins, taking him down with a full-nelson slam for the victory.

With Bayley now a member of Raw, the spot of No. 1 contender to Asuka’s NXT Women’s Championship is wide open. That is why the matchup between Liv Morgan and Aliyah was so important, as both rising Superstars look to make a name for themselves.

Aliyah certainly put forth a strong showing, but she could not keep up with Liv Morgan’s energetic attack, which culminated in a spinning kick for the pinfall.

The new titleholder displayed appreciation for the warm response from the crowd as he also showed respect for his TakeOver: Brooklyn II opponent, Samoa Joe. Nevertheless, Nakamura made it clear: Joe’s reign is over. Now it’s time for “The Era of Strong Style.”
