A wrestler from each team (three wrestlers) will be in the match at the same time.
A few minutes in, Io Shirai and Candice LeRae went down on the outside, off camera. Officials checked on them, then carried to the back. Michael Cole said he wasn’t sure what happened. Wtf… NXT is down two members, with no explanation of what happened. Io Shirai and Candice LeRae were out I guess…
Nikki Cross was eliminated via roll up by Bianca Belair, who used the ropes for help. Belair then hit a top rope 450 splash on Sarah Logan. Sarah Logan was eliminated. Carmella hit a nice middle rope Frankensteiner on Charlotte Flair, dropping her onto Bianca Belair, but she wasn’t able to get the pinfall. A minute later, Charlotte hit Natural Selection on Carmella to eliminate her. Carmella was eliminated. Kairi Sane hit an Insane Elbow on Toni Storm, but Sasha broke up the pin with a Meteora, then pinned Kairi. Kairi Sane was eliminated.

They faced off and the crowd popped. Meteora off the middle rope by Banks, but Ripley kicked out. Sasha tried again, but Ripley hit her with a big boot, then locked on her signature submission… but Banks broke free and locked on the Bank Statement.
Io Shirai and Candice LeRae suddenly ran out! They were playing possum earlier. They pulled Ripley to safety. Seems unfair… Shirai hit Banks with a springboard dropkick, then Ripley hit her with the Rip Tide. 1-2-3. This was a good match and the crowd was hot, but I didn’t like the whole fake an injury, then hang out backstage for the entire match only to return at the end thing.
Winners: Team NXT (Ripley, Shirai, LeRae survived) (28:00)
Backstage: Kevin Owens, Seth Rollins
Backstage, Kevin Owens was looking at a Raw armband. Seth Rollins came in (to boos) and said that he needed to know where Owens’ loyalty lies, since he showed up on TakeOver last night. Owens said that he just showed up last night to take care of Undisputed Era, and said that his loyalty lies with Raw because NXT doesn’t need him, but Raw desperately does. He then called Rollins a hypocrite for questioning his loyalty and walked off.
AJ Styles vs. Roderick Strong vs. Shinsuke Nakamura

Styles picked up Strong on his shoulders, and Nakamura flew off the top with a flying kick on Strong. Nakamura went for the Kinshasa on Strong, but Styles grabbed Nakamura’s leg from the outside. Sami Zayn then smashed Styles’ head into the ring post.
“Go to Sleep” by Nakamura on Strong. The crowd started chanting “CM Punk.” Nakamura went for the Kinshasa again, but Styles came out of nowhere with a forearm onto Nakamura. Cole keeps calling Nakamura “Shin” and it is pissing me off…

Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Daniel Bryan
Yes, there was red lighting in this match… Wyatt dominated Bryan for the first few minutes, with the crowd mostly dead. The red lighting is no good and is putting me to sleep and giving me a headache. Wyatt went for Sister Abigail on the outside, but Bryan shoved him into the post. Bryan then jumped off of the top rope onto Wyatt.
Yes kicks by Bryan as the crowd came to life. The Fiend sat right back up. More Yes kicks… and Wyatt got right back up again. A third round of Yes kicks, and he stayed down this time. Bryan stomped on his head repeatedly. Yes chant… Running knee by Bryan, but Wyatt kicked out.
Bryan went to the top, but Wyatt got up and locked on the Mandible Claw… but Bryan fell backwards and escaped. Bryan got back onto the top and jumped off, but Wyatt caught him and went for Sister Abigail, but Bryan escaped… but Wyatt locked on the Mandible Claw again… and pinned him to the mat… 1-2-3.

WWE Championship No Holds Barred Match
Brock Lesnar (c) vs. Rey Mysterio
Mysterio was dressed as a clown… The bell rang and Mysterio immediately grabbed a metal pipe from under the ring. Mysterio chased after Lesnar, but Lesnar was able to stomp on the pipe and take control of the match. He tossed Mysterio violently to the outside, then tossed him into the Spanish announce table, then hit him with an overhead belly to belly onto the top portion of the announce table.

The crowd was on fire and the air was taken out of them with Lesnar’s win. Really fun match.
Winner: Brock Lesnar (7:00)
Becky Lynch vs. Shayna Baszler vs. Bayley
The crowd sounds dead. Not sure about this as the main event, unless there’s some sort of angle planned for the end…
Very boring first few minutes and the crowd was almost silent. After a few minutes, Becky locked on the Dis-Arm-Her on Bayley, but Shayna broke it up. Bayley to Belly on Baszler out of nowhere, but she kicked out. No response from the crowd. Smatterings of “CM Punk” chants. Not good.
Later, Baszler locked on the Kirifuda Clutch on Bayley, but Becky broke it up. Becky locked on the Dis-Arm-Her on Shayna, but she reversed into the Kirifuda Clutch, but Bayley broke it up. On the outside, Baszler attacked both Bayley and Becky and dropped Becky hard onto the announce table.

Winner: Shayna Baszler (18:10)
After the match, Baszler celebrated on top of the announce table with her NXT Women’s title. Becky Lynch suddenly got up and attacked her and gave her a leg drop off of the crowd barricade through the German announce table. Becky grabbed her title and climbed on the other announce table as her theme music hit and the show went off the air. Very underwhelming finish to an otherwise really good PPV.
