Here is what happened, thanks to Jacob Cohen for the results:

– EC3 defeated Kona Reeves despite Velveteen Dream’s attempts to distract EC3
– Shayna Baszler defeated Candice LeRae. Baszler attacked LeRae after the match but Kairi Sane made the save. Baszler blindsided Sane and then ran off.
– Tommaso Ciampa defeated Aleister Black to become the NXT World Champion. Johnny Gargano ran in towards the end of the match after the referee was knocked out. Ciampa ended up getting the best of Gargano and then he went on to defeat Black to become the champion. It looks like we will be getting Gargano vs. Ciampa one last time at Takeover: Brooklyn 4.
