WWE has taped several weeks worth of NXT tonight at Full Sail University leading up to NXT TakeOver: Chicago II. Spoilers below:
Airing June 6th:
* NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler comes out for a promo. She says she sent a message last week via Dakota Kai that she’s always tougher than the locker room. She says there’s always one person that thinks the laws don’t apply to them, and that person is Nikki Cross. Shayna says if Nikki ever gets in her face again, she’ll regret it. Cross interrupts. Shayna calls Nikki’s stunt last week a joke. Says the only place Nikki is better than her is in that wacked-out corner of her brain. Shayna asks what’s wrong with Nikki and asks if she’s crazy. Says Nikki needs to know she can put her to sleep in a heartbeat and throws the mic at her. Nikki picks up the mic and starts begging Shayna to do it. Nikki lunges at Shayna and Shayna flinches. Nikki then attacks Shayna, but gets distracted by the title belt and allows Shayna to throw her out of the ring. Nikki recovers and hits a crossbody on Shayna and sends her running.
* Dakota Kai, Steffanie Newell, and Kacy Catanzaro defeated Reina Gonzalez, Vanessa Borne, and Taynara Conti. Kacy is from American Ninja Warrior, and looked good for someone with only a few matches under her belt. Match was a little sloppy at times. Heels beat up on Nixon for a good bit, until she made the hot tag to Dakota. Crazy spot where Kacy does a handstand on the ropes into a headscissors on Reina, who knocks Taynara off the apron. Newell does a crossbody to the outside on them, and Dakota nails her new finisher, a flip backstabber, for the win
