Complete Spoilers From Latest WWE NXT TV Tapings

Ciampa, Gargano, Ricochet and Black all involved...

The latest set of NXT TV tapings took place last night with a couple of big WrestleMania season rivalries seemingly set up. As those who saw last night's NXT network show will know, the big announcement that was teased turned out to be the return of the Dusty Rhodes Classic tag team tournament - some of those matches took place last night at the tapings as well.

Obviously, please do not read on if you want to avoid spoilers for the next few weeks of NXT TV

War Raiders defeat Vandal Ortagun & Chico Adams

Johnny Gargano arrives without the NXT North American Championship (which he was seen stealing back after losing it to Velveteen Dream last time around) and claims that it's been an interesting few weeks as he's not only shown the NXT Universe what he's all about, but he's shown the Raw and SmackDown Live rosters too.
Tommaso Ciampa then comes out to say that Johnny is at his best when he's aligned with him as we saw on Raw and SmackDown, but when Johnny on his own and refused help, he lost.
Ciampa then offers Gargano to join him in the Dusty Rhodes Classic as that's where it all started for DIY, and because the winner of the tournament gets a shot at the tag titles at TakeOver: New York, and that could be their moment. Gargano accepts and shakes the NXT Champion's hand.

Dominik Dijakovic vs. Keith Lee ends in double count out before a post-match brawl

Shayna Baszler defeats Mia Yim

Aleister Black & Ricochet defeat Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel – First-Round Dusty Rhodes Classic

Forgotten Sons defeat Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch – First-Round Dusty Rhodes Classic

Velveteen Dream comes out to remind everyone that he is the rightful NXT North American Champion, and just before he can get a second reminder out, Matt Riddle appears.
Riddle congratulates The Dream but then says he wants to challenge him for the North American title. Dream says he isn't Riddle's bro and the spotlight only shines on him. The lights then go out and when they come back on, Riddle has disappeared.

Mustache Mountain defeat Street Profits -  First-Round Dusty Rhodes Classic

Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa defeat Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish - First-Round Dusty Rhodes Classic. War Raiders come out to stare down DIY from the stage.

Luke Menzies defeats Eric Bugenhagen

Sasha Banks and Bayley make a shock appearance, with The Boss saying it's good to be back and you never forget where you come from. Bayley then mentions how the last time Sasha was in an NXT ring, it was the TakeOver: Respect Iron Woman Match.
The pair then say they want to share the newly minted Women's Tag Team Champions with NXT, so they will defend the titles on Raw, SmackDown, and the yellow brand.

Adam Cole defeats Punishment Martinez - Cole then says that he is the first-ever North American Champion but has yet to receive his one-on-one rematch. He calls Velveteen Dream "the biggest moron of them all" before the current champ appears to slap Cole. They then brawl, with Martinez getting involved as well. The sequence finishes with Dream giving Cole one of his elbow drops.

Forgotten Sons defeat Mustache Mountain – Dusty Rhodes Classic Semi-Finals

Io Shirai vs. Bianca Belair (number one contender's match) ends in a double DQ after Shayna Baszler gets involved. The champ chokes out both Io and Kairi Sane.

Ricochet & Aleister Black defeat Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano - Dusty Rhodes Classic Semi-Finals

Post-match, Candice and Tommaso are helping Gargano up the ramp. Ciampa tries to throw Johnny into the video wall but Mr. Wrestling is playing possum, reverses, and then beats the crap out of Ciampa (this is all very confusing after what we saw on Raw and SmackDown, isn't it?)

The final sight is of Johnny hinting that he's coming after the NXT title before posing with Candice.
