1. Solomon Crowe beat Brian Kendrick. Crowe got the win with his slingshot splash. It seems Brian Kendrick has been brought in as a guest coach at the WWEPC.
The show opened with Adrian Neville coming out and talking about how he should be coming out to congratulate Sami Zayn on his title win, but Zayn couldn't be there to accept it because of Kevin Owens. Owens came out and said that he was there to get to the top and he'd fight anyone to get there. Owens presumed Neville wanted a fight and said now he's got one.
1. Becky Lynch forced Bayley to submit.
2. Bull Dempsey squashed an enhancement wrestler. The guy who lost was indie wrestler 'Mr. 450'.
3. Baron Corbin squashed an enhancement wrestler.
4. The Ascension over Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady (w/ Carmella). Post-match, The Ascension said that the war with Hideo Itami and Finn Bálor is far from over. Joy.
5. Adrian Neville vs. Kevin Owens ended in a countout or no-contest. Owens hit the apron powerbomb on Neville and medics tended to him to end close the show.
1. Charlotte submitted Sasha Banks to retain the NXT Women's Championship. Ric Flair made an appearance to introduce Charlotte before the match. Charlotte got the win with her Figure-Eight Leglock.
2. The Lucha Dragons defeated Jason Jordan and Tye Dillinger. Post-match, The Vaudevillains attacked the Lucha Dragons.
3. Blue Pants (a/k/a Leva Bates) beat Carmella (w/ Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady). Bates got the win after Carmella was distracted by Enzo. Post-match, Carmella attacked Enzo.
4. Baron Corbin over CJ Parker. Bull Dempsey watched from the crowd and after the match, Corbin asked if Dempsey was scared. He pulled Dempsey over the barricade and the two brawled until broken up.
Charlotte came out for a promo. She said that she's beaten everyone there is to beat in NXT. Sasha Banks and Becky Lynch came out and jumped Charlotte, but Natalya ran out to even things up and set up a future tag match.
5. Finn Bálor and Hideo Itami beat The Ascension. There was another GTS tease by Itami which once again popped the crowd big and enticed a "GTS" chant. Itami scored the win after a spinning roundhouse kick.
Sami Zayn came out to celebrate his NXT Championship win. He went into the crowd and celebrated with fans before entering the ring for a promo. He said that in anyone else's hands, the title means you're the best, but in his hands it means he can do it his way. He said it's not his, but ours. He said that Takeover should've been the best night of his life but instead it ended with Kevin Owens powerbombing him. He said it hurt him but didn't kill him. He said he's here and he's ready to defend the NXT Championship against anyone, anywhere, anytime.
Adrian Neville came out and told Zayn that he saw him as a new man; declaring that Zayn was in-fact the better man at Takeover. Zayn reminded Neville that he is entitled to a rematch when he wants one. Enter William Regal who thanked both men for their match at Takeover, calling it one for the ages. He announced that the main event of next week's show would be the rematch: Adrian Neville vs. Sami Zayn for the NXT Championship.
