Recap by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.com

Show opens with video from after last week’s NXT as Rich Brennan interviews NXT GM William Regal about Kevin Owens’ request to make the main event NXT Title match between himself and champion Finn Balor at TakeOver: Brooklyn. Regal says Balor is willing to adhere Owens’ request, so Regal grants the request for Balor-Owens for the NXT Title at TakeOver: Brooklyn will be a Ladder Match.

We see the usual intro, then commentary welcomes us to the show. We go to the opening match.

Tye Dillinger def. Solomon Crowe by pinfall with a Basement Codebreaker.

Video from earlier today with the Hype Bros. with Zack Ryder being a little annoyed at Mojo Rawley’s staying hype.

Baron Corbin def. Axel Tischer by pinfall with End of Days.

Afterwards, Corbin gets the mic and says that everytime he comes to the ring, he dominates. It will be the same, tired story. No one gets up from End of Days. Corbin goes back after Tischer, then Steve Cutler runs in to make the save, but he gets laid out with End of Days. Corbin grabs the mic and repeats what he said. Samoa Joe’s music hits and he makes his way to the ring. Joe says he’s impressed with Corbin, but he heard Corbin wants a challenge. You definitely won’t be doing that to me. Corbin says he do it to anyone, including you. Joe says how about you do it right now. Corbin says he just fought 2 guys, but we can do this, just not right now. Corbin shoulder-bumps Joe, then hits a series of right hands. Corbin goes for End of Days, but Joe counters it into the Kokina Clutch. Joe takes Corbin down and chokes him out. Joe stands tall over the fallen Corbin as he leaves.

We see another vignette on Bull Dempsey getting “BULLFIT.” Iron sharpens iron.

Tyler Breeze “selfie” promo about his match with Jushin Liger at TakeOver: Brooklyn. Breeze says like Itami, he will get rid of another Japanese star. Domo arigato, Liger, thanks for helping me become the face of the Rising Sun.

NXT Champion Finn Balor def. Marcus Louis by pinfall with the Coup de Grace.

Afterwards, Kevin Owens attacks Balor on the rampway. When they get to the ring, Balor fights back, but then Owens lays him out with the Pop-Up Powerbomb. Owens holds up the NXT Title belt and stands over the fallen Balor.
