*SPOILERS* WWE NXT TV Taping Results For July & August


Last night saw the latest WWE NXT TV Taping take place, with the company taping episodes for July and August heading into the next Takeover event.

Below are the results from the tapings courtesy of Jacob Cohen, and obviously from this point on the article is spoiler heavy.

-This set of tapings opens with a promo from a newly heel Io Shirai, and a recap of the steel cage match against Shayna Baszler. Shirai gets booed heavily, then says he doesn’t have any friends, and she doesn’t need any of us.

  • Matt Riddle defeated Arturo Ruas. Ruas is a rebranded Adrian Jaoude. Riddle wins by ref stoppage. After the match, Killian Dain returns and attacks Riddle, putting him through the stage with a running senton.
  • KUSHIDA defeated Apollo Crews. Another NXT return. KUSHIDA wins by submission with the Hoverboard Lock. After the match, the two men shook hands.

-Adam Cole cuts a promo and says he’s going to defend the NXT Championship against Twan Tucker, a Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae trainee. Gargano makes an appearance and brawls with Cole, culminating with Gargano diving off the stage onto Cole.

  • NXT Tag Team Championship Match: The Street Profits (c) defeated Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch. The Profits retained with their spinebuster/frog splash combination. After the match, the Undisputed Era appeared on the stage and clapped for them.


–The Cole/Gargano brawl continued, with Gargano tapping out Cole with the Gargano Escape.

  • NXT Breakout Tournament Semifinal: Jordan Myles defeated Angel Garza. Apparently the brackets have changed from the graphic shown during Wednesday’s taping. Shane Thorne stormed out to the commentary table as the match was ending.
  • Bianca Belair defeated Xia Li. Belair won with the KOD.


–Velveteen Dream cuts a promo challenging someone to step up and challenge him for the North American Championship. Roderick Strong steps up, but Dream tells him he’s not worthy. Pete Dunne interrupted, laid out Strong, and had a staredown with Dream.

  • Io Shirai vs. Kacy Catanzaro ended when Candice LeRae attacked and brawled with Shirai.
  • Damian Priest defeated Keith Lee. Priest capitalized on a referee distraction and used a spin kick and his version of Cross Rhodes to pin Lee.
  • Tyler Breeze defeated Jaxson Ryker. Breeze won with a surprise roll-up. After the match the Forgotten Sons attacked Breeze until a returning Fandango made the save.
  • NXT Breakout Tournament Semifinal: Cameron Grimes defeated Bronson Reed. Grimes won with a running double stomp. The finals at TakeOver: Toronto will be Cameron Grimes (Trevor Lee) vs. Jordan Myles (ACH).

– Shayna Baszler cut a promo on Mia Yim ahead of their NXT Women’s Championship match at TakeOver: Toronto. Yim interrupted, the two talked trash, and Baszler held up the NXT Women’s Championship.\

– Matt Riddle showed up for a match, but was attacked by Killian Dain again.

  • KUSHIDA defeated Scott Parker. This appeared to be a re-shoot from the previous night’s taping. KUSHIDA won by submission with the Hoverboard Lock.

– The Street Profits and Undisputed Era had a contract signing for the NXT Tag Team Championship match at TakeOver: Toronto, and it somehow didn’t end in violence.

  • Shane Thorne defeated Joaquin Wilde. Thorne pinned Wilde after a running knee.
  • Pete Dunne defeated Roderick Strong. Dunne won by submission. After the match, Velveteen Dream had a staredown with Dunne. Strong yelled at Dream that the title will be his at TakeOver. Dream posed, allowing Dunne to catch him off guard, snap his fingers, and hit the Bitter End.
