|WWE NXT TakeOver: San Antonio 2017 Results|
Charly Caruso and Corey Graves are the panelists...just for a few seconds. Corey announces that he is no longer going to be doing NXT coverage. He gets a little emotional when announcing Nigel McGuinness will replace him with Tom Phillips (no mention of Percy Watson). Nevermind, McGuinness just mentioned Watson is staying on as well.

Now it's time for the actual event.
Tye Dillinger vs. Eric Young
RESULTS: Eric Young via pinfall
THOUGHTS: To be honest, I thought this fell rather flat. I didn't get into it at all.
Andrade "Cien" Almas vs. Roderick Strong
RESULTS: Roderick Strong via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: I couldn't really get into this one either, for the most part. I sincerely hope these were the two lamest matches on the card and it gets better from here. It just seemed like two indie guys going out there and putting on a generic fight.
NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: #DIY (c) vs. The Authors of Pain
RESULTS: The Authors of Pain become the new champions via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Better than the previous two matches. I'm totally game for the title change and keeping AOP looking strong.
Seth Rollins pops up in the ring to say he's calling out Triple H! The Game shows up, but just stands there, motioning for security. Three guards come. Rollins takes them out. Several more guards show up and with their powers combined, they form Captain Planet. I mean, they restrain Rollins.
NXT WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP FATAL 4-WAY MATCH: Asuka (c) vs. Peyton Royce vs. Billie Kay vs. Nikki Cross
RESULTS: Asuka retains via pinfall on Peyton Royce.
THOUGHTS: Fun match made entertaining mostly due to Royce and Kay. The spot with Nikki Cross going through the table was the best part.
NXT CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: Shinsuke Nakamura (c) vs. Bobby Roode
RESULTS: Bobby Roode via pinfall.
THOUGHTS: Yessss!!! I like Nakamura, but I was really rooting for Roode and I'm glad they did this the way they did. Nakamura puts up a good fight, Roode simply capitalizes on an injured leg. Best match of the night.
