Before this week’s episode begins we get a card dedicating it to the memory of Bruno Sammartino. We get the standard issue opening video and then it’s off to Full Sail for action. Mauro and Percy Watson are on commentary tonight with Nigel out due to the birth of his child.

It’s time for the finals of the Mixed Match Challenge. The commentary team of Michael Cole, Corey Graves and Beth Phoenix welcome us to the show and show us how to use our phones before throwing it backstage where Rusev and Lana are shown dicking around on their phones. Rusev is claiming that good ol’ Bob Roode is a cheater. Elsewhere backstage Big E and Lana are also dicking around on their phones and eating pancakes out of a little briefcase.

We’re at the Sugar Mill in New Orleans for this crossover event between Impact (née TNA) and Lucha Underground. Our hosts for the evening are Matt Striker and Josh Mathews. ECW ’09 commentary team all up in this mug!
Melissa Santos and some random blonde lady who is apparently Impact’s backstage interview lady come out to hype the crowd. Since this is on Twitch instead of basic cable Melissa Santos tells the crowd to make “some fucking noise,” or something like that before introducing the competitors for the first match.

We’re at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, LA for NXT TakeOver. The show begins with a shot of the crowd. A bunch of people have glowsticks for some reason. As has become the norm for TakeOvers we begin with a band (this times Cane Hill) playing live while a video hyping the show plays them. I think this is a pretty cool way to intro the show and is a better use of music than the random mid-show musical performance that will happen at Mania.

It’s time for the penultimate episode of Mixed Match Challenge. As is always the case we start things off with Michael Cole and company welcoming us to the show. Unlike past installments though this week things are a bit different as Cole informs us that due to an injury Charlotte Flair is not medically cleared to compete in action tonight and so a poll to determine her replacement went down earlier today and the WWE Universe selected Becky Lynch to fill in for her. So let’s get down to action between two teams, 75% of which were previously eliminated in this tournament!

We start today’s episode of Mixed Match Challenge not with Corey Graves demonstrating how to use a smart phone but rather a serious looking Michael Cole telling us about the attack on SmackDown General Manager Daniel Bryan by those dastardly Canadians, Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn.
EMTs load Bryan unto a stretcher and wheel him away and Michael Cole informs us that we can check social media for updates on Daniel Bryan’s condition in the days to come.
