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.

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’re back for another exciting episode of mixed tag team action. As always, our hosts for the evening are the team of Beth Phoenix, Michael Cole, and Corey Graves. They welcome us to the show and inform us that tonight we’ll see the last quarter-final match of the tournament with Lana and Rusev taking on the team of Bobby Roode and Charlotte. As always they show us how to use a phone before the two teams make their way down to the ring.

It’s Tuesday night which means it’s time for another action packed installment of Mixed Match Challenge. The commentary team welcomes us to the show and teaches us how we could use Facebook Watch if we happened to live in the only country in the world where that feature is available and then tells us that the team of Naomi and Jimmy Uso are chatting online right now.

Champions clashing! Every SmackDown title is on the line! It’s time for WWE’s Clash of Champions baby! We get a brief video package about champions clashing and the duo of Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn being shitheels before we head back to some arena in Boston for action! Our hosts are Tom Phillips, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton.

We start things off with a video package highlighting TakeOver: Brooklyn III while Code Orange plays. WWE always does a solid job of video packages and highlights and this is no exception.
We head to the Barclays Center for tonight’s wrestling action which means these matches were recorded prior to TakeOver and that they’re more or less going to be wrestling for wrestling’s sake, which is fine by me.

Time for a wrestling show! Time for NXT TakeOver! We kick things off with a band called Code Orange rocking out live while some sort of video package for TakeOver plays. Code Orange is pretty good and I’ll probably check them out at some point in the future.
It’s a fine way to open the show since it’s different and doesn’t really fuck with the flow of the show the way musical performances in the middle of wrestling shows generally do.

We start things off with highlights of Ciampa turning on Gargano at TakeOver Chicago as well as Ciampa’s promo afterwards. I had forgotten how angry I was at Ciampa, but this video package did the trick and my hatred came rushing back. Johnny Gargano will be here tonight!
We also see footage from last week of sad Roderick Strong hugging his mom and his fiancee after his loss to Bobby Roode in his championship match.
No opening theme song video this week since we go right to Full Sail for action!

After a hype package for tonight’s main event battle between Roderick Strong and Bobby Roode and the opening credits we see footage of Roderick Strong and his family arriving at Full Sail University earlier today. We then head down to the ring for tag team action.
