8/22 NXT in Brooklyn TV taping spoilers: Matches taped for TV prior to NXT Takeover: Brooklyn (spoilers)
NXT TV taping
Brooklyn, New York at Barclays Center
Report by Dot Net readers ThebDean and Kyle Petrano
The Barclays is packed. There do not seem to be any empty seats. There was a long line to get in, but the show got under way about 7:50 ET.
1. Enzo Amore, Big Cass, Zack Ryder, and Mojo Rawley beat The Mechanics, Jason Jordan, and Chad Gable. As expected, Enzo and Cass came out to a huge pop. No Carmela with them. Enzo was the babyface in peril for most of the match. At one point, Gable was bleeding from the mouth, but I'm sure how it happened. The good guys won after the typical flying Enzo onto Gable.
2. Eva Marie beat Carmella. Eva came out to some huge heat. She started the match with a few cartwheel type holds, which seemed very slow and clunky. A big "You cant wrestle" chant occurred (maybe they'll edit that out). This was a short sloppy match.
3. Bull Dempsey defeated Elias Sampson. Bull had probably the best video board. Every few seconds he appeared just growling and trying to look menacing. It's hard to tell how much his Bull Fit has done for him, perhaps he slimmmed down a bit. He won in relatively easy fashion with his top rope headbutt. He also did this Hulking up type of gimmick toward the end of the match. I'm not sure if this is new, but the crowd seemed into it.
4. Emma defeated Charlotte, Becky Lynch, and Dana Brooke in a four-way. The ring cleared out early to let Charlotte and Becky fight. They are clearly a lot better than Dana, which the crowd let her know. At one point, they teased heat between Emma and Dana...they seemed to makeup only for Dana to cheap shot Emma with an enziguri. Emma won kinda strangely on a cross-body block onto Becky. Even Emma seemed surprised she won. Post match, Charlotte beat down Emma. Dana came to attack Charlotte, and eventually Becky and Charlotte put their respective submission finishers on Emma and Dana. It was kind of confusing as to who was face and heel for a while, though clearly Dana is heel and not well liked either.
