The Undisputed Era is back, but can they get on track and recapture tag team gold?
Dakota Kai defeated Rhea Ripley via Pinfall (Go To Kick)
Ripley began the match in full control and showing off her dominance that we are all used to seeing. Although Ripley showed her dominance, Kai showed off her resiliency by kicking out time and time again. At one point, Ripley had Kai in an electric chair on the outside, slamming Kai’s face on the apron. Eventually Kai gained control of the match (with a bit of help from Mercedes Martinez) and finds herself the number one contender to the NXT Women’s Championship.
That Robert Stone Brand just doesn’t seem to want to leave Rhea Ripley alone. After the match, Mercedes Martinez attacked Ripley, leaving her a bloody mess.
Before a commercial we saw the Undisputed Era making their arrival to Full Sail.
After commercials we saw Pat McAfee chatting with Shawn Michaels. We are told McAfee will be on commentary later in the night.
Bronson Reed defeated Shane Thorne via Pinfall (Tsunami)
Shane Thorne actually looked great in this match, but the Thicc Boi picks up some needed momentum heading into TakeOver 30.
After the match a video from earlier in the day of Breezango arriving to the building is shown. They are attacked by Legado del Fantasma. The new cruiserweight faction threw Fandango in the back of their car and drove off as Tyler Breeze gave chase.
A video hyping up the triple threat match between Damian Priest, Oney Lorcan, and Ridge Holland is shown before heading to commercial.
Returning from break, McKenzie Mitchell caught up with the Robert Stone Brand. Stone said that while Rhea Ripley may be done with the Robert Stone Brand, the Robert Stone Brand is not done with her.
A replay of Dexter Lumis’s win last week is shown.
Damian Priest defeated Oney Lorcan and Ridge Holland via Pinfall (Reckoning)
Holland looked to make a statement with his debut, but failed in the attempt. The match was hard hitting and super entertaining by all three men. In the end, Priest gave himself another chance for his name to live in infamy.
After a commercial we are shown photos of an apparent reconciliation between Pat McAfee and Adam Cole. We are told Cole is now focused on Undisputed Era getting back on track.
Keith Lee defeated Cameron Grimes via Pinfall (Spirit Bomb)
Before the bell Grimes was jumping around ready to go, but as soon as the bell rung and Lee turned around? To the outside Grimes went. Lee was in no mood for games and that meant bad news for Grimes. Grimes really stood no chance in this one.
After the match the lights went low and a voice spoke in a different language…possibly Scarlett? Then Karrion Kross came up on the tron. Since Kross has signed with NXT he has not seen William Regal around at all. Apparently Lee is the guy to make things happen and what Kross does is on him. The camera panned away from Kross and showed a few people laid out backstage. Tick Tock.
Before another commercial, we saw the Undisputed Era preparing for their match.
Returning from commercial we received news from William Regal regarding the ladder match at TakeOver 30. Dexter Lumis is injured and will not be medically cleared before TakeOver. Regal has taken under consideration complaints by Johnny Gargano and Finn Balor, both of whom were not pinned in their respective triple threats.
In two weeks there will be two singles matches between men who were not involved in the finishes of their triple threat matches. The winners of those matches become the last two entrants to the ladder match.
Legado del Fantasma then made their entrance to ringside. Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde are dragging Fandango to ringside, while Santos Escobar had the mic.
Escobar said that they come out here week after week to show why lucha libre is art and not just some gimmick. Escobar did not like the fact that Breezango mocked the lucha libre culture at the Great American Bash. He called for Mendoza and Wilde to beat down Dango, but Tyler Breeze tried to make the save.
Unfortunately for Breeze, he was taken out. Escobar then gave a warning to Isaiah Swerve Scott. He told him not to speak his name, otherwise he would end up beat down like Breezango.
A video is shown of the importance Undisputed Era has had on the NXT tag team division. It began with their debut at TakeOver Brooklyn in 2017 and showed a ton of their other victories.
Returning from another commercial, Damian Priest is being interviewed in the parking lot. He said that it is not a secret that he has been after the North American Championship for awhile and now is his time. Priest does not care who else is in the match, his reign of infamy begins at TakeOver 30.
Bronson Reed shows up to congratulate Priest. Priest let him know that he should get those championship aspirations out of his head, because there will be no flukes at Takeover. Then a one on one match is thrown out.
Pat McAfee is then introduced at commentary.
Tegan Nox defeated Indi Hartwell via Pinfall (Shiniest Wizard)
Hartwell began the match by bragging about her victory over Shotzi Blackheart, which got her a head butt. Eventually Hartwell did have control of the match by getting Nox in a few headlocks and gaining a big boot, but Nox came back with a vengeance. The Shiniest Wizard is sure to keep Nox’s name in the title picture.
We saw Imperium preparing for the main event before heading to break.
Once we returned from break, we are told that Kushida will be facing Cameron Grimes and a mystery opponent in the triple threat qualifier. We are also told that Bronson Reed will face Damian Priest and Danny Burch will take on Karrion Kross.
Imperium defeated Undisputed Era (Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish) via Pinfall (European Bomb)
Pat McAfee was still on commentary for the main event and there was a lot of talk of his history with Adam Cole. McAfee was adamant that their issues were water under the bridge, but his commentary seemed to state otherwise.
O’Reilly and Fabian Aichner began the match by trading hard hitting punches and kicks. The match was very back and forth, but the focus seemed to be on the commentary table (Beth Phoenix didn’t even finish the show). O’Reilly looked to have Marcel Barthel put away by putting focus on Barthel’s leg.
McAfee’s commentary though really bugged Adam Cole and he left ringside to confront him at the announcers table. Cole told McAfee to chill out and then splashed water on him. A whole mess of people, including Triple H and Shawn Michaels came out to diffuse the situation.
Meanwhile in the ring, Imperium utilized the distraction to their advantage and retained the NXT Tag Team Championships.
We ended the show with referees trying to get McAfee to leave. Unfortunately that did not work. McAfee told Cole he would be a tiny, itty, bitty, short little bitch. Cole then lunged at him, but McAfee was quick to punt him in the head. Triple H then shoved McAfee to get him out of there.
