If you are hoping to avoid spoilers for future episodes of NXT you might want to avoid the internet. The brand taped a bunch of shows last night in Florida and spoilers are everywhere.

There was sort of a weird moment at the end of the show when the members of the Undisputed Era came on the ramp and were seemingly supporting Strong. Members of the faction could be heard saying that Strong should be the champion. Strong was confused by the whole situation.

William Regal announced a qualifying match for the women’s championship 4-way at Takeover. Liv Morgan, Nikki Cross, and Peyton Royce will meet in a 3-way match with the winner qualifying for the women’s championship match. So far, only Kairi Sane has been announced for the women’s title match at Takeover.

The Aleister Black vs. Velveteen Dream feud continued on this show as well. Black was scheduled to face the debuting Lio Rush, but the Dream interfered before the match could begin. This probably saved Rush taking a kick to the face.

Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross became a team for the second time this week. Riot looks as though she is starting to open up to the idea of forming an alliance with her one-time rival. NXT might consider adding tag-team titles to their women’s division soon. They have the Iconic Duo, Riot and Cross and a few others who could team up if a division was to be created.
