Fabian Airchner def. Johnny Gargano
Johnny Gargano’s struggles continued as the embattled Superstar lost a hard-fought clash to the up-and-coming Fabian Aichner.
Aichner used his combination of speed and strength en route to the impressive victory. Gargano unleashed an all-out assault on Aichner, but the Italian-born Superstar withstood Gargano’s onslaught to roll up Johnny Wrestling for the pinfall to shock the former NXT Tag Team Champion.
Andrade “Cien” Almas made a statement while signing on the dotted line
The NXT Championship Match contract signing between the titleholder, Drew McIntyre, and the challenger, Andrade “Cien” Almas, ended up being an opportunity for the No. 1 contender to make an emphatic statement.
McIntyre signed the contract backstage with General Manager William Regal, but when the champion made his way out to the ring — presumably to call out his challenger — Almas blindsided him.
Standing over the fallen titleholder, Almas signed the contract, then used the gum from Zelina Vega’s mouth to stick the piece of paper to the chest of McIntyre.
NXT Tag Team Champions SAnitY vs. The Authors of Pain ended in a No Contest
Adam Cole, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly pounced on both tag teams, leveling a furious assault. Finally, the monstrous Killian Dain rushed the ring, helping slow the attack. However, even The Beast of Belfast couldn’t overcome the numbers disadvantage.
Roderick Strong then came to the ring, but pulled out an Undisputed ERA wristband as he appeared ready to join the renegade faction. However, instead of attacking Rezar, Strong unleashed a furry of right hands to Cole, Fish & O’Reilly. Strong proceeded to clear the ring of the trio of troublemakers alongside The Authors of Pain.
With a sea of carnage surrounding the ring, General Manager William Regal made his way out to the stage, announcing that SAnitY, The Undisputed ERA and the team of The Authors of Pain & Roderick Strong will do battle in a Triple Threat Match. But, it won’t be any ordinary Triple Threat Match — it will be WarGames!
