Johnny does want the North American Championship. Ricochet comes out and says he wants to defend the title at Takeover: Phoenix and wonders if Johnny will fight him man to man or behind his back in the parking lot. Tomasso Ciampa arrives and antagonizes the situation, but Aleister Black shows up on the screen and says Ciampa will fade to Black. the lights go out and when they're on again, Black is behind Ciampa. They brawl as Ciampa runs off. Distracted by this, Ricochet is surprised by a superkick from Gargano.

Per WON

Spoiler

Dark match --
- Stacey Ervin Jr. defeated Shane Thorne

The now-solo Thorne had an old-timey piano song as his theme. Ervin was making his Full Sail debut and had the crowd behind him from the start. He impressed with his gymnastic ability, hitting a beautiful moonsault to win it.

Johnny Gargano cut an in-ring promo where he said Tommaso Ciampa may have willed a match between himself and NXT North American Champion Ricochet into existence. Ricochet interrupted -- but before he and Gargano could really get into it, Ciampa made his way to the stage.

Aleister Black then appeared on the big screen to tell Ciampa to shift his focus from Gargano back to him and their NXT Championship match. The lights went out, Black appeared behind Ciampa, and they brawled to the announce desk. Gargano took a shot at Ricochet to leave him laying in the ring as well.

- Bianca Belair defeated Nikki Cross

This was a physical match that got plenty of time. They teased a double count out after Belair crushed Cross on the ramp. Belair used a torture rack front slam to win it.

After the match, the crowd erupted in "Thank you Nikki" chants as she had a moment to soak it all in.

- Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner defeated an enhancement team

Kunsman and Watts were their opponents' names.

- Adam Cole (w/ The Undisputed Era) defeated EC3

Major distractions allowed Cole to hit the Last Shot for the victory. The beating continued until the War Raiders made the save to clean house.

Hell this episode was worth it for Ford's brunch outfit.

I have no clue how the Belair/Shayna match is going to work so I'm excited.

Everything else was ok.

Fabian definitely has the Cesaro vibe of a person who grew up on a planet with a higher gravity than earth so now that he's here he's just going to throw motherfuckers around.  He seems to have bulked up since he completed in the CWC.

I saw Barthel/Aichner team debut for for both NXTs, and I must say I like them a decent bit so far. Barthel shows more as Aichner's partner than he did on his own.

They mentioned that he cut wait to do the CWC in the first place so we may just be seeing him at where he was before then.

Aichner seems much better in this role than he did as a babyface and Evolve champ. The team has some potential. I am already imagining how fun a throw down between them and Lorcan/Burch would be.

Love the European Union. I hope they make them a throwback heel tagteam, they have just the right charisma for it.
