While the first night of tapings for the Mae Young Classic was taking place at Full Sail University, tonight’s previously recorded episode of WWE NXT was on the air on the WWE Network. The main event of the evening saw Johnny Gargano take on Aleister Black, as Aleister looked to exact some revenge on Johnny Wrestling after he cost him the NXT Championship to Tommaso Ciampa a couple of weeks back.
Unfortunately, Black was unable to do that as Ciampa inserted himself into the fracas, causing the match to be thrown out. This would lead to a brawl around ringside between all three men which referees tried to break up, which in turn led to General Manager William Regal making his way to the stage. Regal spoke about how he couldn’t control the tempers of the three NXT Superstars, therefore he wouldn’t try to anymore, announcing that they they will meet at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4 on August 18th in a Triple Threat for the NXT Title.
Of course, Aleister was injured at a Live Event in Las Vegas after this match was taped and had to undergo surgery for a groin injury (read about that here). Today, multiple sites have jumped on our previous report that it’s very likely Black will not be able to compete at TakeOver, but for the time being the match is still official. Here’s a look at the updated TakeOver: Brooklyn card:
Triple Threat for the NXT Championship
(C) Tommaso Ciampa vs. Aleister Black vs. Johnny Gargano

Spoiler-free previews for tonight’s NXT and 205 Live!
After a couple of weeks worth of WWE’s NXT were held in San Jose and Los Angeles, California, last week the brand returned back to its home at Full Sail University as the final episodes of the year have already been taped.
Although tonight’s episode of WWE NXT was previously recorded at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida, we at The Chairshot realize not everyone likes a spoiler. With that in mind, here’s a non-spoiler preview of what’s happening on NXT, which airs at 8PM EST on the WWE Network:

Preceding NXT will be the high-flying action of the Cruiserweights at 7PM for 205 Live. While it was taped last night prior to SmackDown Live, here’s a non-spoiler preview for tonight’s episode of the purple brand:

WWE News: Another Match Made For TLC This Sunday
WWE has added a Chairs Match to TLC on Sunday!
Just as SmackDown Live is about to go on the air (keep up with all the action with Mitchell’s Live Report), another match has been made official for Sunday’s TLC pay-per-view featuring two of the blue brand’s top Superstars.
After their recent encounters and the shocking unmasking, Rey Mysterio will have his shot at revenge against Randy Orton when they go one-on-one. However, it won’t be just any match as the two will clash in a Chairs Match:
Rey Mysterio and Randy Orton will pull out a chair (or two or 10) to settle their scorching rivalry, and the time and place for the hard-hitting encounter will be at WWE TLC, where they will go head to head (and swing for swing) in a Chairs Match.
The bitter hatred between these two Superstars fueled several jaw-dropping moments, including Orton viciously unmasking The Master of the 619 during the Nov. 20 edition of SmackDown LIVE. Given their chaotic brawls in recent weeks, nothing will come close to the battle that awaits them in this steel sharpens steel affair.
Will Mysterio capitalize on his moment for redemption? Or will The Apex Predator claim another “victim?” Don’t miss Mysterio and Orton swinging for the fences in what promises to be a chaotic Chairs Match at WWE TLC, Sunday, Dec. 16, streaming live at 7 ET/4 PT on the award-winning WWE Network.
