* Nikki Cross defeated Vanessa Borne. I’m assuming this is a re-tape of the match they had last night, to air on February 21st. The same exact match, just a few tweaks. Nikki wins with the Swinging Fisherman Neckbreaker.
Airing February 28th::
* Shayna Baszler defeated Kairi Sane. Shayna lays in with knees and kicks. Shayna works over the arm. Shayna with a modified gut wrench suplex for a 2 count. Kairi gets a roll up for 2. Shayna misses a knee in the corner. Kairi hits a spear. Kairi with the baseball slide forearm. Kairi goes up for the InSane Elbow, but Shayna kicks her in the head and pulls her off the top rope and into her chokehold for the submission. Shayna jaw jacks with the announce table after the win
* NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega come out for a promo. Zelina calls Andrade the greatest NXT Champion in history, or Mr. 4-0 and runs down Gargano for losing again and again. Zelina says who cares about earning respect, and unlike most women, she doesn’t feed off her man’s success, she creates it. Andrade says Johnny tried again and again but lost. Andrade says he made him Johnny Jobless. Zelina asks what they call Andrade and he says “NXT Champion.” Aleister Black’s music hits as Andrade is on stage, and Black hits the ring. Before he can talk, Killian Dian’s music hits and he and Aleister square off. Killian hits a running crossbody and leaves him laying.
Airing March 7th:
* Bianca Belair defeated a local enhancement talent. Quick squash, nothing of note. Once again, no hair whip.
Airing March 14th:
* Dakota Kai defeated Lacey Evans. This was a quick match. Dakota wins with a roll-up. After the match, Shayna Baszler comes out, but NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon runs out before Shayna can attack. Ember says Shayna started it, but she’s going to finish it at Takeover: New Orleans. They brawl and Shayna knocks Ember with a forearm shot. Ember hits a boot and goes for the Eclipse, but Shayna kicks her. Shayna starts to lock in a kimura, but Dakota jumps on the apron and hits a boot to Shayna. Ember hits the Eclipse to leave Shayna laying.
* NXT General Manager William Regal out. Contract signing for the NXT Title match at “Takeover: New Orleans” — Andrade “Cien” Almas defending against Aleister Black. Andrade is introduced, but Zelina Vega says Andrade is not here tonight and if he was here, he would destroy Aleister tonight. Aleister is ignoring Zelina and looking under the table. Aleister moves the table, sits down and tells Zelina now they are on the same level. Zelina says Andrade is going to destroy him at New Orleans. Aleister says she’s concerned that Andrade will come up, like her, a little short. Zelina slaps him. Aleister stands up, signs the contract, and leaves the ring. He says he’s glad Zelina came out alone because he didn’t. Candice LeRae comes out who attacks Zelina all over ringside and lays her out in the ring. Regal comes back out and thanks us and that’s it for the tapings
* It should be noted that we’re really not sure where they are in the tapings, they’ve been filming randomly and with odd breaks
