Tonight’s episode of NXT ended with a mixed tag team match, where Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae took to the ring against Damian Priest and Io Shirai. Ahead of their respective championship matches at NXT TakeOver 31, Gargano and LeRae came out on top tonight, thanks to some late shenanigans from LeRae aiding Gargano.
Late in the match, Shirai found herself in the ring with a downed Gargano, and landed a massive backflip splash on him from the top rope. With things looking like they were about to end, Shirai tagged in Priest, who prepared to hit Gargano with a Reckoning. However, the referee began to look at Io Shirai, who was trying to prevent LeRae from getting in the ring. With the referee distracted, LeRae landed a massive low blow on Priest, knocking him down and allowing Gargano to land the One Final Beat on Priest for the win.
Following the match, Io came back into the ring towards Johnny, but was quickly hit with a backstabber by LeRae. With both Priest and Shirai down, Gargano and LeRae taunted the pair, grabbing both the NXT North American Championship and NXT Women’s Championship and holding them up in a pose.
