Coming off of an awesome Takeover (which I highly recommend watching), we're in the Capitol Wrestling Center for NXT.

We start with highlights of NXT Takeover: Vengeance Day. Commentary welcomes us to the show and HERE COMES KYLE O'Reilly to no entrance music. He says we all saw what happen at Takeover. He keeps replaying the moment but can't make sense of it. O'Reilly is shocked, confused, disappointed, and pissed off. O'Reilly says they were special and suppose to be unlike any other group but Cole ruined it. Cole kicked him in the face and stabbed him in the back. O'Reilly calls Cole his brother and is willing to forgive him. O'Reilly wants Cole to come down to the ring and explain himself! O'Reilly says he'll probably punch Cole but he wants to hear it from Cole. HERE COMES RODERICK STRONG. Strong says they are special. Strong knows Cole and what he did was because of emotion. O'Reilly is pissed! O'Reilly screams at Strong and says he wants to hear it from Cole. O'Reilly warns Strong not to get in the ring. O'Reilly doesn't trust Strong because he doesn't know who to trust. O'Reilly demands Cole bring his ass out here!! HERE COMES FINN BALOR!! O'Reilly tells Balor that he doesn't win him here either.

Strong tells Balor O'Reilly didn't have anything to do with it. PETE DUNNE, ONEY LORCAN, and DANNY BURCH ARE HERE TO ATTACK!!!

Commentary says the Undisputed Era appears to be crumbling.

William Regal says he received a message from Santos Escobar earlier today. Escobar says no one threatens Escobar. Escobar claims he's going home so he's no longer threatened. He'll fight on his terms.....not tonight. Regal says the match will take place next week. Regal says if Escobar doesn't show up, he will be suspended and stripped of his title. Regal announces that tonight's main event will be Pete Dunne, Danny Burch, and Oney Lorcan vs. Finn Balor, Kyle O'Reilly, and Roderick Strong!
