Welcome to Wrestling Inc's live coverage of WWE NXT. Tonight's show features the return of Sami Zayn, as well as Chad Gable & Jason Jordan in action! Please enter your ongoing feedback of tonight's show in the 'Comments' section below.


Fatal 4-Way Tag Team
The Vaudevillains vs. Hype Bros vs. Blake & Murphy (w/ Alexa Bliss) vs. Chad Gable & Jason Jordan

The crowd chants for Gable and Jordan to the tune of the 1993 song "No Limit." Fantastic. Gable outwrestles Gotch, then Rawley tags himself in and kills Gotch with a shoulder block. The Hype Bros follow up with a suplex/dropkick, and Gotch is down. Everyone gets tossed out of the ring, but then run back in and square off as we head to a commercial break.

We come back to see Gable armbar Murphy over the top rope, but Blake stomps Gable to knock him off. Gable is worked over by Blake, Murphy and the Vaudevillains before getting his knees up on a senton. Jordan hits the ring with big dropkicks and four huge suplexes including one of the capture variety. Mojo takes advantage and clears the ring, then sends Ryder flying onto a pile of guys outside. Jordan tosses Mojo from the ring, suplexes Murphy onto the pile, allowing he and Gable to land Grand Amplitude on Blake for the win.


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

- We see Asuka tease Emma and Dana Brooke in the trainer's room last week. Dana Brooke says they have to get serious about teaching Asuka a lesson.

- We see NXT UK tour highlights.

- Tye Dillinger is backstage, where he says he's going to spoil Sami Zayn's big return tonight.

- Elias Samson vignette. Not much of a song this time though.

Bull Dempsey vs. Elias Samson

Dempsey gets some early offense, but gets dropped by a big knee. Samson hits a beautiful flying elbow drop for the win.

Winner: Elias Samson via pinfall (Flying Elbow Drop)

- Dash and Dawson are backstage, and say Enzo and Cass proved themselves last week and earned their respect.

Sami Zayn vs. Tye Dillinger

Dillinger works over Zayn's arm and does a cartwheel, a bad one. The cartwheel doesn't matter much, as Zayn arm drags him and does his dive tease spot. Outside, Dillinger pushes Zayn into the ring post as we head to commercial. We come back to see Dillinger working over Zayn's arm.

Zayn battles back with clotheslines and a suplex, and a dive to the outside before hitting a Blue Thunder Bomb for a two count! Dillinger comes back with a superkick for a two count. Zayn fires back with a corner exploder and the Helluva Kick for the win!


Winner: Sami Zayn via pinfall (Helluva Kick)

After the match, Zayn gets on the mic and says he's back. He gets emotional and talks about how incredible it is that NXT sold out Wembley. He says more of this will happen in 2016. He thanks the crowd before leaving.
