WWE NXT Results – 8/16/2017

We are at Full Sail University and your announcers are Nigel McGuinness, Percy Watson, and Mauro Ranallo.

Mauro mentions the NXT Women’s Title match between Ember Moon and Asuka.

William Regal is in the ring with a table, microphones, and a contract. He introduces the two women who will battle for the NXT Women’s Title at Takeover. Out first is Ember Moon. She is followed to the ring by Asuka.

William presents the contract for Ember to sign and he wants to make this official. Ember says Asuka has an incredible journey in NXT. You are one of the most dominant champions to set foot in NXT or the WWE. You have beaten the best on Raw, Smackdown, and NXT. Your streak has surpassed Goldberg. One thing sticks out in that incredible journey, you have taken a shortcut with only one person, her. In Orlando, you had to push a referee in front of me to win. Then you injured me so I could not compete at Takeover Chicago. You made the biggest mistake of your life. Ember says she refuses to be a victim. She is faster and stronger than she has ever been. It is because of all of your short cuts. This is her way of saying thank you to Asuka. At Takeover, she will end your reign of dominance. She will end your undefeated streak. She will beat Asuka to become the next NXT Women’s Champion.
