We got a full card and a full house for NXT this week.

Latino World Order versus OTM – Tag Team Triple Threat Qualifier

It is the battle of the acronyms. OTM attacks the LWO as they are making their way down to the ring. The official still rings the bell and allows the match to go on. Joaquin Wilde is cut off from Cruz Del Toro. The LWO battles back but the OTM is just so much stronger throwing them around like rag dolls. Price lands a cheap shot when the official ain’t looking. Bron Breakker and Baron Corbin are seen watching from the gantry above. Del Toro tags in really taking it to OTM. His momentum doesn’t last long though when he is caught in mid-air and slammed. Wilde pulls off a crazy move jumping off his opponent’s back over the top rope and onto everyone on the floor. Nima is all by himself and gets pinned by Wilde’s assisted 450 splash. The champs mock the LWO.

Winners: Latino World Order
