WWE taped a full episode of WWE NXT for next week’s episode prior to tonight’s NXT Takeover New Orleans, which featured two matches and a major tag team debuting.
The company often tapes one episode of NXT prior to Takeover events to be used the week after before returning to Full Sail to record another bulk of episodes.
Below are the results of the taping, courtesy of PWInsider.com:
(1) Kairi Sane def. Lacey Evans with the flying elbow.
(2) Heavy Machinery vs. Tino Sabbatelli and Riddick Moss went to a no contest after War Raiders, formerly ROH Tag Team champions War Machine attacked both teams and left them laying.
Sane and Evans have been having a small feud lately, with Evans talking trash about Kairi on last week’s episode of WWE NXT.
This also marked the first TV appearance for War Raiders, who have undergone a slight name change from War Machine, which fans will know from their ROH careers.
