The show began with a video package of the main event, showing the NXT Women’s Champion Asuka and her two contenders, Nikki Cross and Ruby Riot.
Drew McIntyre vs. Rob Ryzin
The show opened at Full Sail University with Drew McIntyre confidently striding to the ring. He had the early strength advantage, overpowering his opponent immediately. McIntyre dropped his opponent with a big boot, some massive chops in the corner and a massive belly-to-belly suplex that tossed him halfway across the ring.
Ryzin fought back with some stiff kicks, but McIntyre kicked out at 1. Incensed, McIntyre splashed Ryzin, splashed into him in the corner, went up to the top rope and came crashing down, but Ryzin still retaliated with a punch.
McIntyre unleashed a volley of punches and chops, knocking Ryzin out of the ring. McIntyre hit Ryzin with his finisher, a very stiff kick to the jaw, to pick up the win.
