* Rich Swann and No Way Jose defeated Tony Nese and Drew Gulak in a first round Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic match. Great match. Swann took out Nese with a crazy dive to the floor and Jose hits his finisher on Gulak for the pin. After the match, Swann & Jose cut a promo saying The Authors of Pain shouldn't look past them, and lead the crowd in dueling "Can you handle this/No Way Jose" chants
* "The Glorious" Bobby Roode defeated Sean Maluta. Okay match, Roode is over huge. After the match, Roode cuts a promo saying he and Tye Dillinger have a match at "Takeover: Toronto." Roode runs down Tye and claims he begged Roode to be his partner. Dillinger runs down to attack, and they brawl. Tye clotheslines Roode out of the ring and sends him packing to huge 10 chants from the audience
* Backstage promo with Liv Morgan recapping her loss to Billie Kay with Peyton's distraction. Liv gets jumped and laid out by Billie and Peyton and they drag her to the stage and lay her out. Billie and Peyton say they are putting the women on notice and the division belongs to them
* Austin Aries and Roderick Strong defeated Tucker Knight and Otis Bogojevic in a first round Dusty Classic match. Surprisingly good for the contrast in styles and weights. Roderick got a huge pop for his debut. Team Aries picks up the win when Aries hits his spinning forearm allowing Strong to hit Death by Roderick and the Sick Kick for the win
* Nikki Cross squashes Danielle Kamella with SAnitY at ringside. Nikki jumps Danielle after the match until Eric Young pulls her away. Nikki slaps EY and goes after Danielle again. They announce the referee has reversed his decision and names Danielle the winner due to excessive violence
* NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura is out for a promo. He tells Samoa Joe if he wants his title at Takeover he will be him with no mercy. Patrick Clark interrupts to huge, huge heat. Patrick suggests him vs. Nakamura, the Patrick Clark Experience. Nakamura kills him. Samoa Joe runs out, but stops when Nakamura turns around, and retreats. Nakamura hits a Kinshasa on Patrick while the refs are helping him up
