Welcome to our WrestlingINC.com NXT coverage. Tonight's show features a main event of Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss for the NXT Women's Title.

Carmella vs. Nia Jax

Jax immediately powers Carmella around the ring, and Carmella goes after her with forearms before eating a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Nia Jax applies the bear hug, but Carmella locks on a guillotine. Carmella lands a few kicks, but gets pushed down and planted with the spinebuster. Leg drop, finish. Nia Jax wins.

Winner: Nia Jax via pinfall (Leg drop)

- Alexa Bliss says she's what girls strive to be, and she's not happy just being there. A referee shows up and says that William Regal has ruled that Blake and Murphy are banned from ringside.

Chad Gable & Jason Jordan vs. The Ascension

"This is awesome" chants before the match starts. Konnor is put into the corner of Gable & Jordan, where he eats a double Northern Lights suplex. Gable is tossed into the Ascension's corner, where Konnor does the "yah" boots. Viktor comes in and leg drops Gable twice, but only gets a two count. Gable gets worked over in the corner, but lands a giant amateur wrestling arm drag.

Jason Jordan hits the ring and sends Viktor flying with a belly-to-belly suplex before clotheslining Konnor outside. Viktor drills Jordan with a knee, as Gable flips onto Konnor. Grand Amplitude on Viktor for the win.

Winners: Chad Gable and Jason Jordan via pinfall (Grand Amplitude)

- We see a video package about tonight's Bayley vs. Alexa Bliss match. Bayley is backstage and says she's going to give Alexa a wrestling lesson tonight, and make her earn respect.

Emma vs. Mary Kate

Mary Kate lands a big clothesline and forearm but ends up getting drilled by a couple of kicks from Emma. Emma stands on the hair of Mary Kate. Emma pummels Mary Kate before hitting the Emma Sandwich and applying the Emma Lock for the win.

Winnner: Emma via submission (Emma Lock)

Emma doesn't let go of the hold after the match.

- Baron Corbin is backstage and challenges Apollo Crews to a match.

Dash & Dawson vs. Corey Hollis & John Skyler

It's put over that these two teams faced off before getting to NXT. Hollis is quickly isolated and has his leg attacked, as is tradition with Dash & Dawson. This goes on for several minutes until Hollis tags Skyler, but Skyler walks right into the elevated Codebreaker.

Winners: Dash & Dawson via pinfall (elevated Codebreaker)

It was announced that the Vaudevilians will get their title rematch against Dash and Dawson next week.

- Asuka is backstage with her mask on, and Dana Brooke challenges her to a re-match. Asuka takes off the match is smiling, and says yes. Emma comes in and asks Dana if Asuka fell for it.

NXT Women's Championship
Bayley (c) vs. Alexa Bliss

Bayley is really aggressive to start off, but walks into a Bliss forearm. A snapmare sets up Bayley's seated clothesline and knee drop. A series leads to both women being outside, where Bayley is sent into the ring apron as we go to our last commercial break.

We come back to see Bayley fighting out of an arm scissors, but Bliss hits her with an overhead throw, Bliss keeps working over the arm, and clobbers Bayley with a big slap. The Glitz Flip only gets two, and Bliss goes up top. Bayley grabs Bliss and powerslams her for a two count. Bliss manages to pull a sunset flip out for a two count. Bayley gets the Bayley-to-Belly out of nowhere for the win.

Winner: Bayley via pinfall (Bayley-to-Belly) to retain the NXT Women's Championship

Eva Marie comes out, and calls the fans dorks and tells them to shut up. She says Bayley will defend the title against her next week.
