WWE NXT Recap (8/26): 90 Minute Episode From Brooklyn, Fatal 4-Way Main Event, Enzo And Cass In NY

Welcome to our WrestlingINC.com NXT coverage. Tonight's episode features matches taped prior to this weekend's NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn special.

- We see highlights of the TakeOver special, and then Enzo & Cass come out to a giant reaction.


Enzo Amore, Big Cass & Hype Bros vs. Scott Dawson, Dash Wilder, Jason Jordan & Chad Gable

The Hype Bros double team Dash Wilder until he fights out and tags Dawson, who eats a beautiful Ryder second rope dropkick for two. Enzo is tagged in and gets a big pop as he dances in pinstripe pants. All 8 men end up brawling, and the baby faces dominate Wilder. Ryder gets a big reaction for his Broski Boot as well.

Enzo and Cass hit a breathtaking move where Cass chucks Enzo over the top rope onto all of the heels. We go to a commercial and come back to see Enzo getting worked over by Jason Jordan. Gable comes in and works over Enzo's arm, a duty he shares with Dawson and Wilder. Gable lands a cool one-armed monkey flip and the heels keep working Enzo over while the crowd chants "we want Cass."


Enzo hits a big DDT and makes the hot tag to Cass, who destroys everyone. Ryder hits the Rough Ryder, followed by a swinging slam on Gable by Cass. Enzo and Cass hit the Rocket Launcher for the win!

Winners: Enzo Amore, Colin Cassady & Hype Bros via pinfall (Rocket Launcher)

Carmella vs. Eva Marie

Eva Marie misses a clothesline and Carmella moonwalks around the ring. Eva applies a really bad headlock and gets hip tossed and dropkicked. Eva drops Carmella with a nice forearm, but only gets a two count off of a senton. Eva then applies a modified abdominal stretch and taunts Carmella.

Carmella fights back with a head scissors takedown and a few Thesz presses. Eva hits a jawbreaker and a rough looking Sliced Red for the win.
