QSST win Girls 18’s final at NYC

first_imgTwo touchdowns to captain Emily Reed has helped QSST beat NSWCHS in the 18’s Girls final at the X-Blades National Youth Championships in Coffs Harbour. Reed scored one touch down in each half to lead her team to a 6-2 win at BCU International Stadium.QSST and NSWCHS were worthy of their places in the final, being seeded 1 and 2 respectively in the tournament. Leading into the game, both teams had set the benchmark in attack and defence, with QSST only letting through 8 touchdowns in the carnival and NSWCHS only letting through 10.NSWCHS started the game off strong, with Melissa Peters scoring in her first set of six.QSST retaliated and were on the scorecard within the next set of six, scoring through Reed.The opening exchanges were intense, with plenty of ground being made by both teams. However, there was a lot of dropped ball early and QSST gave away several penalties, giving NSWCHS a great opportunity.Despite having several sets of six close to their line in the early stages of the game, NSWCHS were unable to capitalise and QSST pounced.QSST’s Alika Bedford put her team in front for the first time in the 13th minute, scoring in the corner to give the Queensland girls a 2-1 lead.Kirsty Quince scored for QSST 3 minutes later, on the back of a penalty from the NSW team. NSWCHS fought back quickly to score through Rachel Beck in the next set of six.Desperate defence from NSWCHS player, Jordan McGregor in the 19 minute, stopped the score from blowing out and QSST went to the halftime break leading 3-2.Reed was in again for QSST in the opening set of the second half, scoring her second touchdown. Betty Mareko scored 3 minutes later, blowing the score out to 5-2.After a Latisha Gary intercept in the 5th minute of the second half, NSWCHS’ Eliza Naseby was sin binned after an attempt to chase her down.Although NSWCHS had many opportunities in the second half, they were unable to convert these opportunities into points, despite back to back sets of six and ample time close to their line.QSST’s Latisha Gary intercepted the ball in the closing minutes of the game, to put the game beyond doubt for the Queensland girls, with QSST winning by 4 touchdowns.  Kirsty Quince was named player of the match, and Alicia Quirk was named 18’s Girls player of the championships.last_img read more

NCAA vote may allow studentathletes in ads

Active Ohio State student-athletes have never been allowed to appear in corporate advertisements. That will change for the Buckeyes and all Division I student-athletes if the NCAA Division I Athletic Council passes proposed legislation, which would allow game clips of current players to appear in advertisements. The council is expected to vote today at the NCAA convention in San Antonio. The relationship between the corporation and the university would have to be clearly stated. For example, Nike Inc., which outfits OSU’s athletic teams, could use highlights from this football season in its ads as long as it included something like “a proud corporate sponsor of Ohio State athletics,” said Michael Rogers, NCAA Amateurism Cabinet chairman. The cabinet is in charge of drafting the proposed legislation to alter current standards of amateurism, but it is not the only council involved. “This is a highly collaborative process,” Rogers said. “You try to get all of the stakeholders involved.” In doing so, he said, the cabinet reviewed proposed legislation from previous years along with feedback from university presidents and input from student-athlete advisory committees. “I know the issue but I’m just going to have to think about that,” OSU President E. Gordon Gee said in an interview with The Lantern. “I’m not a corporate guy. I’m an old- school guy. I don’t believe in playoffs or anything. Anything that is a slippery slope toward professionalization I have to be very careful about.” Despite the reduced restriction on the use of student-athletes’ images, many limitations will remain. “Direct endorsement is clearly prohibited, (and) then there are some other limits and … consents that have to be obtained,” Rogers said. “The last thing we are trying to do is exploit student-athletes.” Others argue that the new legislation will do just that. Big Ten Commissioner Jim Delany firmly opposes the legislation and told The Chronicle of Higher Education it was “the essence of exploitation.” Rogers said he understands his committee’s decision will be controversial. With “something like this you are never going to come up with a piece of legislation that everyone thinks is perfect,” he said. “What you try to do is strike the right balance.” If the athletic council feels that balance has been struck and passes the legislation, it will move on to the Division I Board of Directors for final approval. The committee can also choose to defeat the rule change or send it back to NCAA members for further review. If that is the case, Rogers said he expects his committee to be responsive. “I’ll be interested to see what they say and respond accordingly,” he said. “If we need to retool it or tamper it in some fashion, we can certainly do that.” The OSU compliance office did not respond to multiple requests for comment on its stance on the legislation. read more

Parrot Analytics and Guinness World Records analyzed global demand for all series openers from April 2015 to April 14, 2019, the date of the Game of Thrones Season 8 premiere, to calculate the ranking.“Game of Thrones amassed a per capita global audience demand of 25.46 on 14th of April 2019, its Season 8 premiere day. Compared to its per capita global demand of 24.74 on the day of its Season 7 premiere, the latest and final season has premiered 2.9 percent higher globally,” Samuel Stadler, VP of marketing at Parrot Analytics, told Deadline in a press statement. “Premiere day demand has been particularly strong in the United States, United Kingdom, and France.”Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 1, which highlighted Winterfell preparing for a battle with the Night King’s Army, generated millions of viewers, said a Guinness World Records press release. HBO confirmed that 17.4 million people streamed the episode on their subscription TV services, and their HBO GO and HBO NOW streaming apps, within 24 hours of the Season 8 premiere.“It comes as no surprise. Game of Thrones has its fans tightly clenched in its dragon-like grip, and excitement for this final series has seen phenomenal engagement across every platform,” Craig Glenday, editor-in-chief at Guinness World Records, said in the press release. “It has broken records since it first aired – for its viewership figures, Emmy wins, and even its status as the most pirated TV show!

‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Kharacter Guide: Kitana

first_imgWho Are They?Kitana is the good and fair Princess of Edenia. Or rather she was until the fantasy realm was violently conquered by the villainous forces of Outworld. She then spent much of her life as the unwittingly “adopted” desert assassin daughter of the brutal emperor Shao Kahn, where her DNA was even stolen to create a monster clone “sister” Mileena. But Outworld’s struggle against Earthrealm in Mortal Kombat gives Kitana an opportunity for revenge against her “father.”Kombat KhronologyKitana was one of the major new characters in Mortal Kombat 2, giving the game more female representation beyond just Sonya Blade. And since then she’s remained one of the game’s most prominent female characters, the mold other fantasy women characters diverge from. She’s also become a bit of a love interest for Liu Kang in later games, with Mortal Kombat 11 especially playing up their bond both in the past and in the present as evil zombies.Koolest KustomizationsKitana’s face gets one of the better upgrades thanks to Mortal Kombat 11 now rendering the characters more like real people. So I go with her human form versus her rotting corpse form. As for moves, Kitana’s main gimmick is slicing foes with razor sharp fan blades. So I go for death by a thousand cuts with moves that increase how many fans I can throw out at once or summon around myself for a protective barrier.How Gross Is The Fatality?Kitana’s regal grace doesn’t make her fatality any less gruesome. She just doesn’t get her own hands dirty. Instead, she cut you open and uses her fans to summon a tornado that pulls your entrails out like a gory force of nature. Takes my breath (and everything else) away. Mortal Kombat 11 is available now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.

Since then the fighting game has become a gory institution as colorful ninjas and sorcerers and special forces agents collide to rip each others’ guts out in wacky martial arts tournaments.But in the past decade Mortal Kombat has gone from just a recognizable violent fighting game to a really good recognizable violent fighting game. And the recently released Mortal Kombat 11 brings the reboot trilogy home with a story mode stretching across all of history and new ways for customizing characters to your liking, with different skills and gear to make the accessible mechanics even more varied and deep.Expensive cutscenes and ancillary (arguably exploitative) side content aren’t worth anything though if your fighting game doesn’t have a solid roster. Fortunately, Mortal Kombat 11 gives you a diverse cast of kombatants on which to unleash your bloodlust. And we’re taking a look at every single one of them. Today’s fighter: Kitana.

Watch: Italy’s Mount Etna Volcano Erupts, Spews Lava Into Night Sky

first_img Italy’s Mount Etna launched streams of lava into the night sky in the early hours Friday.The volcano, located on the east coast of Sicily, began erupting at 3 a.m. local time following an increase in seismic activity over the last week.The eruptions sent rivers of smoking red lava streaming down its southeastern slope. The smoke did not affect nearby Catania airport and flight continued as normal, according to reports.Boris Behncke, from Italy’s National Institute of Geophysics and Volcanology (INGV), posted a series of photos on Twitter of lava taken from nearby towns. He said the eruption on Thursday night is considered a “subterminal eruption,” meaning it is occurring close to the summit craters, generally at an elevation of around 2900-3000 meters (9,514-9,842 feet).Scenes of #Etna‘s new, sub-terminal eruption, during the night of 30-31 May 2019, seen from Santa Venerina, Fiumefreddo and (last photo) Tremestieri Etneo. “Sub-terminal” means the eruption is occurring close to the summit craters, generally at around 2900-3000 m elevation pic.twitter.com/6uBXJTShkV— Boris Behncke (@etnaboris) May 31, 2019According to the INGV, the nascent eruption began on the night of May 29. Starting off by producing a thick column of ash rising from the New Southeast Crater, it gave way on May 30 to a far more lava-heavy display in the area, featuring two fissures blenching out lava.The northern lava flow extended toward the northern wall of the Valle del Bove and subsequently turned eastward, reaching a maximum distance of about 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) on the morning of May 31, at an estimated altitude of about 6,075 feet (2,050 meters).New eruption near the summit of #Etna: two eruptive fissures have opened early on 30 May 2019 on the northeastern and south-southeastern sides of the New Southeast Crater, producing modest Strombolian activity and little lava flows.

Hubble Detects Luminous Elliptical Galaxy in Space

first_imgStay on target The Hubble Space Telescope’s Messier catalog shows some of the most breathtaking objects that can be observed from our planet’s Northern Hemisphere, including a bright elliptical galaxy that might be a newborn star hub.Known as NGC 4621 (Messier 59), this galaxy is featured in the deep-sky objects catalog put together by French comet-hunter Charles Messier in the 18th century, however, Johann Gottfried Koehler, a German astronomer, is credited for finding the galaxy right before Messier listed it in 1779, said a NASA press release.According to modern observations, Messier 59 is classified as an elliptical galaxy, one of the three main types of galaxies including irregulars and spirals. Out of the trio, ellipticals tend to be the oldest and filled with ancient, red stars that show little signs of new star formation. Unlike other elliptical galaxies, Messier 59 might be on a whole new level: Astronomers say the galaxy shows signs of star formation, since there are some newborn stars that are present in a disk near the heart of Messier 59.Do you follow trends — or do you break them?This galaxy — Messier 59 — is an elliptical galaxy. Ellipticals tend to be full of old, red stars. Messier 59, however, breaks this trend, w/ some newborn stars residing near the core in this @NASAHubble image: https://t.co/mTvKMZpb5g pic.twitter.com/Tlpfu0ijt0— NASA (@NASA) June 2, 2019Messier 59 is positioned roughly 50 million light-years away from Earth and it’s located in the 2,000-strong Virgo cluster of galaxies in the constellation of Virgo. At the center of Messier 59, there’s a supermassive black hole, which is around 270 million times as big as the sun. According to NASA, the best time of year to spot it is in May, even though there isn’t much of a detail difference between observing it with smaller or larger telescopes.More on Geek.com:NASA Fits 265,000 Galaxies Into Single ‘Hubble Legacy Field’ ImageHubble Spots Stunning Spiral Galaxy 30 Million Light-Years AwayNew Hubble Measurements Confirm Universe Is Expanding at a Faster Rate Watch: Here’s What It’s Like to Fly Through the Orion NebulaHubble Spots Stunning Spiral Galaxy 30 Million Light-Years Away last_img read more

Watch: Bubbles Move Around and ‘Gurgle’ in Gel-Like Water at ISS

first_img Launchpad Blaze Postpones JAXA’s Cargo Ship Launch to ISSISS Astronauts Study What Happens to Concrete Mixed in Space Stay on target A lack of gravity could cause objects to act funky in space, and a recent video from Canadian Space Agency (CSA) cosmonaut David Saint-Jacques demonstrates how bubbles and water can behave differently when they are away from Earth.Shaking a plastic bag filled with water will generate a couple of tiny air bubbles, which head to the top of the bag, but if you do the same task in space, these bubbles act weird. Saint-Jacques’ footage captured different-sized air bubbles moving and gurgling around a bag with a gel-like substance, which is actually some H20, Space.com reported. With the air bubbles, scientists can better understand how items could change in zero gravity environments.“Odd behaviour of air bubbles in water in the absence of the effects of gravity.” – @Astro_DavidS#DareToExploreVideo: CSA/NASA pic.twitter.com/p3g1myuIua— CanadianSpaceAgency (@csa_asc) June 1, 2019Water has this bizarre “disguise” in space due to a lack of gravity. On our planet, air doesn’t weigh as much as water and this causes it to rise upward and break apart through water droplets. At the Space Station though, these air bubbles like to “hang out” in water because there isn’t a force holding the water below them.Saint-Jacques is scheduled to return to Earth on June 24, until then, he will take part in a couple of other experiments, including setting up the Bio-Analyzer, a Canadian technology that can quickly test blood, saliva, urine, and other body fluids, and finalizing the Bio-Monitor, a Canadian smart shirt system that can easily measure astronauts’ vital signs at the Space Station.More on Geek.com:Growing ‘Alien’ Exoplanets Circle Distant Star in New Astronomy Image‘Double Asteroid’ Speeding By Earth at 43,000 MPH Captured in PhotoStunning Images of a Sunset on Earth Captured From Spacelast_img read more

Amazon’s Prime Air Drone Will Make Same-Day Deliveries

first_imgStay on target Amazon Employees Join Sept. 20 Global Climate WalkoutGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls Amazon this week expanded its free one-day shipping service, promising to deliver last-minute products to Prime members the very next day.But what if you need sunscreen and beach towels now?The company on Wednesday unveiled its latest Prime Air drone: A fully electric device that can fly up to 15 miles and deliver lightweight packages to customers in less than 30 minutes.“Our newest drone design includes advances in efficiency, stability, and, most importantly, in safety,” Jeff Wilke, CEO of Amazon Worldwide Consumer, wrote in a blog.Wilke introduced the next-gen UAV at Amazon’s first re:MARS conference—a new global AI event examining machine learning, automation, robotics, and space.Boasting a hybrid design, the Prime Air drone makes vertical takeoffs and landings like a helicopter, while being efficient and aerodynamic like an airplane.It is controlled with six degrees of freedom—more than the standard four—for added stability (particularly handy when operating in gusty wind conditions).“We know customers will only feel comfortable receiving drone deliveries if they know the system is incredibly safe,” Wilke said. “So we’re building a drone that isn’t just safe, but independently safe, using the latest artificial intelligence technologies.”Amazon’s drone doesn’t simply rely on communications systems for situational awareness. Using diverse sensors and advanced algorithms, the aircraft can detect (and dodge) static objects like a chimney, as well as moving objects like a paraglider or helicopter.Upon descent, it leans on embedded stereo vision and artificial intelligence to identify a clear location for landing. Amazon even invented computer-vision techniques to help drones recognize and avoid clotheslines, telephone wires, or electrical wires.“We’re also thrilled about the potential environmental impact,” Wilke wrote.Prime Air is one of the company’s sustainability initiatives to help achieve Shipment Zero—a vision to make all Amazon shipments net zero carbon. In February, the e-retailer announced a short-term goal to reach 50 percent by 2030.“Today, most of us run to the store because we need an item now. With a service like Prime Air, we’ll be able to order from home and stay home,” the blog said. “This saves tremendously on fuel usage and reduces emissions.”Watch: Boston Dynamics Robot Is Now a Warehouse Worker<br />More on Geek.com:FAA Greenlights Google Wing Drone Deliveries in USDHL Kicks Off Regular Autonomous Drone Deliveries in ChinaUPS to Transport Medical Samples Via Dronelast_img read more

‘Game of Thrones’ Star Sophie Turner Gives Coffee Cup Dilemma Update

first_imgStay on target ‘Game of Thrones’ Targaryen Prequel Series Is Reportedly Coming to HBO‘Game of Thrones’ Star Kit Harington Joins Marvel’s &#… The Game of Thrones coffee cup dilemma continues: After the show ended last month, fans are still blaming Emilia Clarke and Sophie Turner for the object’s random appearance in a major scene. However, Turner claims that the incident was actually Kit Harington’s fault.In an interview with Conan O’Brien, Turner jokingly addressed the coffee cup controversy, which is still carrying on even though Game of Thrones ended last month, Fox News reported. Turner cleared the air and said Clarke wasn’t to blame either, since they both had to wear corsets during production.“I hear this every day of my life, this coffee cup thing. So it’s good to know that the coffee cup got more press than the final season altogether,” Turner told O’Brien on his show.She continued, “The coffee cup was where Kit’s  [Harington’s] chair was. First I blamed it on Emilia [Clarke], but I don’t think Emilia [Clarke] would do that. Kit [Harington] is lazy, and I think he would have done that. It was in front of Kit’s [Harington’s] chair and then obviously he moved, so this picture was taken and it looked like it was in my seat, but I wasn’t there either. It was Kit [Harington]. It was a 100 percent Kit [Harington].”Turner then went on to explain how she had a complicated costume situation that didn’t really allow her to drink a lot of beverages on set.“I wear a corset, so I either piss myself or I throw up,” Turner told O’Brien.The already infamous coffee cup has now been edited out of this week’s #GameofThrones if you watch it back(via @verge) pic.twitter.com/ePWkhuHt2l— Fandom (@getFANDOM) May 7, 2019The rogue coffee cup, which didn’t turn out to be an actual Starbucks cup, showed up in a key Season 8, Episode 4 scene, where Winterfell was celebrating a victory over the Night King’s army. Fans pointed out that the coffee cup was placed next to Daenerys Targaryen in the scene, and following major backlash, HBO apologized and eventually removed the coffee cup from the Game of Thrones episode.Game of Thrones is officially over, but none of the cast or crew members have come forward and admitted that they left the coffee cup there. So far, the out-of-place object remains a mystery and it doesn’t look like fans will receive any confessions soon.More on Geek.com:Emilia Clarke Responds to ‘Game of Thrones’ Coffee Cup Controversy‘Game of Thrones’ Deletes Random Starbucks Cup From Season 8 Scene‘Game of Thrones’ Left a Starbucks Cup in a Scene and Fans Are Freaking Outlast_img read more

‘Forza Horizon 4’s’ Lego DLC Makes Us Want More Wacky Racers

first_img Watch: Marvel and Square Enix’s ‘Avengers’ Gameplay Still Creeps Us OutPlay These E3 2019 Video Games Right Now Breaking from years of tradition now, Microsoft didn’t announce Forza 8 at its E3 press conference this year. Typically, the company alternates between announcing mainline Forza serious sim racing games and the more open-world arcade experiences of Forza Horizon. Seeing as last year gave us Forza Horizon 4, we figured this year would be Forza 8’s turn. At this point they’re probably just saving it as a launch title for the next-gen Xbox Project Scarlett releasing next holiday alongside Halo Infinite.However, we did sort of get a new Forza announcement for this year. Previously Microsoft has wheeled out actual sports cars on stage to celebrate their presence in the game. But this time the car was a bit more… blocky. Yes, Microsoft brought out a racecar made of Legos to celebrate the Lego Speed Champions DLC for Forza Horizon 4.Take a look!How awesome is that? As cool as the consistently enjoyable normal Lego games are (including the upcoming Lego Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga) they’re never exactly visual stunners. So seeing the gorgeous Forza engine render racers and tracks made of out blocks so tangible you want to reach out and touch them just rules. The $20 expansion features new challenges, bricks to find, and Lego renditions of McLaren, Ferrari, and Mini Cooper cars to add to your collection.And really, this just makes us wish that racing games were wackier in general. Forza Horizon 3 also got some toy-based DLC with its Hot Wheels expansion. But as fun as that was at the time, I couldn’t shake the nagging feeling that it was more for nostalgic adults than actual kids? For as open and accessible as Forza Horizon is compared to regular Forza, the spin-off still has a foot firmly in that hardcore sim racing world, to its detriment. It’s just a little bit too fiddly and realistic to be as ridiculous and relaxing as I want from an open world racing game. I want a more unrestrained arcade experience, Burnout Paradise basically.If you include stuff like Mario Kart and Team Sonic Racing and Crash Team Racing, there are plenty of racing games that don’t adhere to the rules of our world and its roads. But seeing Lego cars in Forza makes me wish these kinds of experiences weren’t limited to modest kart racing games. There’s no reason why our AAA racing games shouldn’t be absurd, too. Everything can be awesome.The Lego Speed Champions DLC for Forza Horizon 4 launches June 13. For more on E3 2019 watch these trailers. Stay on targetlast_img read more

NASA’s Chandra Detects Giant Coronal Mass Ejection From Active Star

first_img Researchers have identified a massive eruption in the atmosphere of HR 9024, an active star, for the first time.This eruption, which was characterized by a strong flash of X-rays followed by the emission of hot gas with charged particles, marks the first time a coronal mass ejection (CME) has been observed in a star other than the sun, said a Chandra X-ray Observatory press release. The researchers, who published their findings in the journal Nature Astronomy, used data obtained by NASA’s Chandra X-ray Observatory to show that CMEs are generated in magnetically active stars and why they’re important to stellar physics.“The technique we used is based on monitoring the velocity of plasmas during a stellar flare. This is because, in analogy with the solar environment, it is expected that, during a flare, the plasma confined in the coronal loop where the flare takes place moves first upward, and then downwards reaching the lower layers of the stellar atmosphere,” said Costanza Argiroffi, who led the study. “Moreover, there is also expected to be an additional motion, always directed upwards, due to the CME associated with the flare.”Researchers studied a flare that took place on HR 9024, which is located roughly 450 light-years away from our planet. Chandra’s High-Energy Transmission Grating Spectrometer (HETGS), an instrument that can measure coronal plasmas’ motions at quick speeds, was used to observe the flare. According to these observations, during the flare, a super hot material that’s between 18 to 45 million degrees Fahrenheit, first goes up and then goes down with speeds between 225,000 to 900,000 miles per hour.For the 1st time, we’ve detected a coronal mass ejection from a star other than our own! This event, located 450 light years from Earth, was marked by an intense flash of X-rays followed by the emission of a big bubble of plasma. More on these phenomena: https://t.co/L1kULwOdVq pic.twitter.com/ft6S012aAa— NASA (@NASA) June 9, 2019Chandra’s data also enabled the studied CME’s mass to be obtained, which was roughly 10,000 times greater than the largest CMEs sent to interplanetary space by the sun. However, the CME’s speed was much lower than expected and might suggest that the magnetic field found in active stars could be less efficient in speeding up CMEs than the solar magnetic field.“This result, never achieved before, confirms that our understanding of the main phenomena that occur in flares is solid,” Argiroffi added. “We were not so confident that our predictions could match in such a way with observations, because our understanding of flares is based almost completely on observations of the solar environment, where the most extreme flares are even a hundred thousand times less intense in the X-radiation emitted.”More on Geek.com:NASA’s Chandra Spots Pairs of Stars ‘Banished’ From Galaxies Chandra X-Ray Telescope Uncovers Universe’s Missing MatterNASA Observes Mysterious Galactic ‘Jellyfish’ in Deep Space NASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This WeekendScientists Discover Possible Interstellar Visitor Stay on targetlast_img read more

Bayley says that Charlotte refused to shake her hand last week, but I earned this opportunity, I beat your former BFF, Sasha Banks, twice. Its time that you start taking me serious because at NXT Takeover, I am seriously taking your title. Bayley extends her hand and Charlotte asks if this is what Bayley wants. Charlotte then piefaces Bayley, but misses a clothesline and Bayley hits Charlotte with the Belly-to-Bayley. Charlotte leaves the ring as Bayley stands tall, holding up the NXT Women’s Title belt.We go to a promo from Tyler Breeze. Breeze says that its very simple as to why he will win the NXT Title at Takeover. How did Sami Zayn do at the last Takeover show? Not very well. Look at Neville & Kidd, do they look like me? They’re not “Prince Pretty” they’re not the “King of Cuteville”, the “Definition of Dellish”, they’re not the super good-looking piece of gorgeousness that you are ever going to see and you are gonna ask me why I think I’m going to win? Let me think about it, maybe its because I’m better looking than every single person in every single room that I’ve walked into in my entire life. Or, maybe its because that every single time I step into the ring, I get the job done, take your pick.CommercialBack from commercial, we go backstage as Devin Taylor interviews Sin Cara & Kalisto. Cara speaks in Spanish and Kalisto translates, saying that they have a great challenge in front of us tonight. Even though we have been teaming for a short period of time, we are confident that we can beat any tag-team in NXT.

Kidd says at Takeover, it will be a Fatal 4-Way match for the NXT Title. One of the competitors is one of the greatest highfliers ever, something that he developed while competing in the UK. One individual as the most heart, a greatest innovator in that ring, something that he honed while in Japan. One individual in this match, some say is arrogant, self-absorbed and cocky, but he looks like a million bucks and can get away with it. One individual in this match is hungry, determined, cold, callous, ruthless and is probably the most dangerous person in this match, something he learned in the Dungeon. And then there’s Sami Zayn, Adrian Neville and Tyler Breeze, they’re in the match too, that’s how I feel about my opponents at Takeover.CommercialBack from commercial, we go to video sent in by Enzo Amore. We go to Enzo & Big Cass, who are at a hair salon entitled “Hair.” Enzo says they got someone on the inside named Carmella, who got that Victoria Secret weapon, hair removal cream, for that sweet boy, Sylvester LeFort. Cass makes a joke about if Enzo’s mother uses this cream for her back and Enzo says Cass’s mother needs to use it for her mustache. They head into the hair salon and run into Carmella. Cass shoots at Carmella’s “assets” as she greets Enzo. Enzo asks Carmella for the bucket of hair removal cream. She comes back with the cream, then a guy walks in, asking if Carmella can take care of his dog while he goes to get a wax, something these two nethandrals know nothing about. Enzo scares off the guy, then he & Cass go back-and-forth, saying the other should try out the cream to remove their chest hair. They begin arguing and the bucket of cream accidentally goes all over the dog. Enzo apologizes to Carmella, but then takes a lump of hair off the dog, showing that the cream actually works. Enzo & Cass leave as Carmella yells that she is going to get fired, then the video cuts out.Tyson Kidd vs. Adam RoseCrowd chants for Rose as the bell sounds. Rose with a side headlock and a shoulder tackle for a 1 count. Rose with a side headlock takeover, Kidd counters out with a headscissors, Rose kips up.

Rose charges in, but Kidd catches him with a dropkick to the knee.Sharpshooter applied by Kidd, Rose taps.Winner: Tyson Kidd by submission (Sharpshooter)Kidd celebrates his win afterward.We go to a promo from Sami Zayn. Zayn says that the advantage of being a challenger in this Fatal 4-Way match at Takeover is that you don’t have to pin the champion. Now, I’ll win and pin anyone if the opportunity is there and there is the chance to win, but I’d be lying if I wouldn’t want to pin Neville because he is the champion. I don’t want there to be any excuses, I don’t want there to be any doubt, I want to beat the best man in the ring and the best man in the ring is the champion. That just so happens to be Adrian Neville, my friend, but he’s the guy I’d like to beat.CommercialBack from commercial, we go backstage as Veronica Lane interviews the Vaudevillains. Aiden English says that tonight, we prove that we a cut above Sin Cara and Kalisto and any other tag-team in NXT or WWE. Take me for instance, I am a man of artistic caliber and sophistication, as well as a physical specimen. And then there’s my partner, Simon Gotch, the strongest strongman in all of WWE. Where some men climb mountains, Simon Gotch is the only man that can actually move them. And so we take tonight to prove once again that we are superior.Sami Zayn vs. Marcus Louis w/Sylvester LeFortLouis works over Zayn’s arm early. Zayn reverses out, but Louis regains control. “OLE” chant for Zayn. Zayn reverses out again, but Louis then hits a slam.

Cass holds LeFort as Enzo goes to dump the bucket on LeFort, but LeFort is able to escape and runs to the back. The Jersey Boys stand tall with the bucket of cream.We go to a promo from Adrian Neville. Neville says that the obvious disadvantage with the Fatal 4-Way is that I don’t have to be pinned to lose my title and that’s a fact and its a risk, but I chose this match for a reason and if you haven’t noticed, I like to take risks and all three of these guys, I have beaten individually and now all I gotta do is beat them at the same time. Come September 11, its a challenge I’m more than ready for and its a challenge I look forward to.CommercialWe see video highlighting next week’s Takeover live special, noting that it will also be the debut of international star, KENTA.“The Eco-Warrior” CJ Parker vs. NXT Champion “The Man That Gravity Forgot” Adrian NevilleParker comes out with a sign that reads “Fossil Fuels Fools.” Parker backs Neville into the corner, but Neville goes up & over and does 2 front kip-ups.
