#DIY def. HoHo Lun & Tian Bing (Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic First Round Match)
ORLANDO, Fla. — The first round of the 2016 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic wrapped up this week with two big bouts. The WWE Network broadcast kicked off with the first of those, featuring #DIY taking on the duo of CWC participant HoHo Lun and WWE’s first Chinese signee, Tian Bing.
Lun & Bing showed great fire in bringing the fight to their opponents, but the experienced duo of Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa neutralized Bing and clocked Lun with their superkick/running knee strike combination to get the win. #DIY advances to the second round of the Dusty Classic, where they will square off with longtime rivals and NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival.
Aliyah def. Billie Kay
One week after putting Liv Morgan and the NXT Women’s division on notice, Billie Kay looked to make her and Peyton Royce’s message crystal clear this week against Aliyah. Kay seemed to be on her way to accomplishing that, until Morgan arrived on the scene to get a little payback on Royce.
The distraction allowed Aliyah to roll up Kay and earn the victory. After the bell, Morgan went right after Kay, but soon found herself fighting a two-on-one battle. Aliyah returned to even the odds, but Kay and Royce got the upper hand, overpowering the two and leaving them in a heap on the canvas.
Tye Dillinger def. Noah Potjes
With his TakeOver: Toronto showdown with Bobby Roode looming, Tye Dillinger looked to tune up for the huge battle against Noah Potjes. The Perfect 10 looked focused as he picked Potjes apart, getting the three-count after connecting with the Tye-Breaker.
However, Dillinger’s celebration would be short-lived. In the middle of a post-match interview with Mike Rome, The Glorious One ambushed Dillinger from behind, planting The Perfect 10 face-first into the entrance ramp with an implant DDT. Roode made sure to let Dillinger and the NXT Universe know that they can expect more of the same in Toronto.
Asuka def. Thea Trinidad and gets a warning from Mickie James
Seeing the NXT Women’s division as her personal playground, NXT Women’s Champion Asuka took to the ring this week and toyed with Thea Trinidad, letting the newcomer get a few shots in before steamrolling over her. After forcing Trinidad to tap out with a Fujiwara armbar, NXT General Manager William Regal arrived with a message for The Empress of Tomorrow from her TakeOver: Toronto opponent, the returning Mickie James.
James warned that though Asuka may have defeated everyone in her path, she hasn’t faced anyone like her. The former Women’s Champion and Divas Champion warned that an “international incident” was going down in Toronto, which brought a smile to The Empress of Tomorrow’s face.
