Gemini Man most demanding film of my career Will Smith

first_imgLos Angeles: Will Smith, who will be fighting his younger self in Oscar-winner Ang Lee’s Gemini Man, recently said the “emotional and physical challenges” of making the film have been the most demanding of his career. It is for the first time that Smith, known for his action-comedy roles in Hollywood has teamed up with Lee, one of the most genre-bending directors in the modern era. Billed as an innovative action-thriller, the Paramount Pictures film will see Smith as Henry Brogan, an elite assassin, who is suddenly targeted and pursued by a mysterious young operative that seemingly can predict his every move. Also Read – I have personal ambitions now: PriyankaThe trailer of the film, which dropped on Tuesday, shows jaw-dropping action scenes peppered with suspense and a de-aged Smith. The filmmaker and actor of Hollywood, Smith, who aged in reverse with the help of digital technology to play his 23-year-old version, called Lee’s direction “cinematic wizardry”. “Ang is pushing the limits to give people an experience in the movie theatre that you can’t get anywhere else. This is not only an action film, but an exploration of what one’s younger self can ultimately teach one’s older self. I’m 50-years-old now, and the irony of becoming 23-year-old Junior in this film is that 23-year-old me wouldn’t have been ready for this experience or to take on this role,” he said.last_img read more

Anurag Thakur treads path cautiously father backsup

first_imgShimla: The old saying – “once bitten, twice shy” can’t have the best frame-fit slot other than Hamirpur parliamentary constituency.A BJP stronghold for over two-decades, Hamirpur has much at stake for young MP Anurag Thakur, who fights Congress’s five-time MLA Ram Lal Thakur to defend a political legacy that opponents of his father and two-time Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal are trying to covertly question. Dhumal, who led the BJP to the victory in 2017 poll, lost his assembly election by a slender margin of 1,919 votes and missed his third Chief Minister term at a moment when things looked all done for him. Also Read – 2019 most peaceful festive season for J&K: Jitendra SinghThat’s why neither Dhumal nor Anurag Thakur is publically boasting of impending win except that BJP’s national president Amit Shah reaching out them to declare to the voters –a predictable “bigger role” for Anurag Thakur after his victory. “We are happy that Amit Shah acknowledged the potential in Anurag Thakur. It has boosted our prospects. But we haven’t forgotten how the finest victory turned bitter for people of Hamirpur on December 19, 2017, when sahib (Dhumal) lost his Sujanpur seat,” says Sanjeev Katwal, BJP leader and staunch Dhumal loyalist. Also Read – Personal life needs to be respected: Cong on reports of Rahul’s visit abroadThus, Anurag is playing safe and focussing on the campaign. The poll narrative is just confined to development issues. The constituency having a large presence of ex-servicemen and serving soldiers and para-military personnel has an advantage factor for the BJP. “We want Modi to come back. He has raised the morale of forces and hit Pakistan hard,” says Subedar (Retd) Harish Patial of Bhota, near Hamirpur. For Anurag Thakur stakes it’s not alone his victory but also to prove that Dhumal still commands his influence in the constituency, where he had won the elections in 1989,1991 and 2007. Anurag Thakur, 44, had stepped into the shoes of his father in 2008 when Dhumal had become Chief Minister. He won the seat with a record margin of 1.74 lakh votes and never lost thereafter. Biggest criticism about Anurag Thakur is his high profile image when he headed the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) but was removed later by the Supreme Court following a controversy for not implementing the reforms recommended by Lodha Committee. The young BJP politicians, however, is credited with building a world-class cricket stadium at Dharamshala, a landmark even his critics in the Congress appreciates. Challenging him is Congress’s former minister and five-time MLA Ram Lal Thakur, who had been his strong critics ever since Anurag Thakur became Himachal Pradesh Cricket Association (HPCA) president. Thakur alleges, “Anurag did nothing in the constituency. He is also jumblebaaz like Modi. Most of the time he had been travelling abroad or attending high profile parties. He (Anurag) has not replied to my single question as to why he was removed by the Supreme Court from the post of BCCI president?” Congress candidate told the Millennium Post. Ram Lal Thakur, 67, never wanted to contest the poll but the party pushed his name after former PCC president Sukhwinder Sukhu and Congress Legislature Party leader Mukesh Agnihotri declined. But Anurag says, “My work in the constituency and Modi ji’s five years are strong points. Hamirpur is the only constituency, which has got new projects worth hundreds of crores.” He counts on Railway expansion projects, AIIMS, PGI satellite centre, Central University, Medical college, IIIT and National Highways. My mobile ‘Sawsathya Sewa hospital’ has been a big draw, besides “cricket Mahakumbh” for youths and claims having fully utilised the MPLAD. His campaign is supplemented by social media war while Congress has a problem of resources and top campaign strategists due to factionalism in the party.last_img read more

Premonsoon rainfall deficit drops to 22 Met data shows

first_imgNew Delhi: Pre-monsoon rainfall from March to May, a phenomenon vital to agriculture in several parts of the country, has recorded a deficiency of 22 per cent, according to India Meteorological Department (IMD) data.The IMD recorded 75.9 millimetres of rainfall from March 1 to May 15 as against the normal rainfall of 96.8 millimetres, which comes to around minus 22 per cent. From March 1 to April 24, the IMD recorded a deficiency of 27 per cent. The deficiency this week seems to have fallen over the last fortnight due to rains over east and northeast India. Meanwhile, the southwest monsoon has advanced into South Andaman Sea and conditions are favourable for it to reach the North Andaman Sea and the Andaman Islands in the next 2-3 days, the IMD said. Of the four meteorological divisions of the IMD, the south peninsula, which comprises all the southern states, has recorded pre-monsoon deficiency of 46 per cent the highest in the country. This was followed by 36 per cent in the northwest subdivision that covers all the north Indian states it was 38 per cent from March 1 to April 24, but has dropped by 2 per cent due to rainfall across several parts. The deficiency in the east and northeast region that covers eastern states of Jharkhand, Bihar, West Bengal, Odisha and northeastern states was seven per cent. There was no deficiency in the central region which comprises states of Maharashtra, Goa, Chhattisgarh, Gujarat and Madhya Pradesh. However, from March 1 to April 24 the pre-monsoon rainfall recorded in the central division was five per cent than normal. The region has also been witnessing intense heat waves and several dams in the Marathwada region of Maharashtra have reached zero storage level. Pre-monsoon rainfall is important for horticulture crops in some parts of the country. In states like Odisha, ploughing is done in the pre-monsoon season, while in parts of northeast India and the Western Ghats it is critical for plantation of crops. Laxman Singh Rathore, former director general of the IMD, said in parts of northeast India and the Western Ghats, pre-monsoon rainfall is critical for plantation crops. There will be “moisture stress” incase of a deficit, he said. Crops like sugarcane and cotton, planted in central India, survive on irrigation and also require supplement of pre-monsoon rains, Rathore added. “In the forested regions of Himalayas, pre-monsoon rainfall is necessary for plantations like apple. Due to moisture, pre-monsoon rainfall also helps in minimising the occurrence of forest fires,” he said.last_img read more

Ohio State womens volleyball looks to get healthy complete season sweep of

Members of the OSU women’s volleyball team during a game against Michigan on Nov. 14 at St. John Arena. OSU lost 3-0. Credit: Giustino Bovenzi | Lantern photographerInjuries and illness have taken a toll on the Ohio State women’s volleyball team as the season has worn on, as it has lost five of its last eight matches.This week has been no different for coach Geoff Carlston’s team, as an illness has made its way around the roster. Nonetheless, the No. 16 Buckeyes (21-7, 10-6) will try to get back on track when they travel west to battle with Iowa (12-17, 2-14) on Wednesday at 8 p.m.“We’ve been trying to back off a lot,” Carlston said. “It’s hard to sharpen the blade when you can’t do it. As a staff, we’re trying to find a balance between trying to keep us healthy, but it hasn’t seemed to work.”Freshman setter Taylor Hughes has been in and out of the lineup since suffering an elbow injury on Oct. 21, while senior outside hitter Katie Mitchell has missed the last two games with an illness.To rediscover its form on the court after an ugly loss to Michigan on Saturday, Carlston said OSU just needs to get back to believing in itself.“I think we just have to remind ourselves that we’re a pretty good team and we’ve had a really good journey so far,” Carlston said.Much of the Buckeyes’ early-season success was fueled by the team playing with a chip on its shoulder. Senior outside hitter Elizabeth Campbell said “getting back to that underdog mentality” is crucial to get back to the winning ways. “We just need to get back to our fundamentals, stay focused,” junior outside hitter Kylie Randall said. “We still have a lot of games left … we still definitely have a chance to improve.”In the first meeting of the season between OSU and Iowa, the Buckeyes came out victorious in four sets, marking their 13th straight victory against the Hawkeyes.After posting a 10-3 record in nonconference play and garnering national attention in the form of votes in the coaches poll, the going started to get tough for Iowa in conference play, winning just two games against Big Ten foes.However, OSU has seen that records don’t mean much, evidenced by its Nov. 6 loss against a Maryland team that entered the game with a 2-11 conference record.“Especially if we’re kicking and scratching with our health, it’s a tough match,” Carlston said of the upcoming tilt against the Hawkeyes. “They run a very fast offense (and) they’ve given a lot of teams problems.”Iowa picked up its only two conference wins recently against Rutgers on Oct. 31 and Indiana on Nov. 4. Then, on Nov. 7, the Hawkeyes took then-No. 16 Purdue to five sets before falling.Campbell said she believes OSU will have its work cut out for it in defending the quick-paced attack of Iowa.“They have a pretty distributed, fast offense, so just being ready defensively in our blocking game to be up fast and challenge their tempos,” she said.The Hawkeyes currently rank third in the conference in service aces per set with 1.20. To combat that strength and bring home the win, Campbell said the Buckeyes are prepared to be “challenging the passing lanes” all match long. What’s next?A big rematch is set to be on tap for OSU on Saturday, when it is set to travel to Madison looking to complete another season sweep against Wisconsin. Back on Sept. 27, the Buckeyes defeated the Badgers in Columbus in five sets. The first serve is scheduled for 2 p.m. read more

California Wants to Limit Storage of Smart Speaker Recordings

first_img California lawmakers introduced a bill that would limit how manufacturers of smart speakers and digital assistants collect recordings.The Anti-Eavesdropping Act, which cleared its first committee this week, prohibits saving, storing, or sharing of audio recordings without explicit consent from the user.“Recent revelations about how certain companies have staff that listen in to private conversations via connected smart speakers further shows why this bill is necessary to protect privacy in the home,” Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham (R-San Luis Obispo), the bill’s author, said in a statement published by The Mercury News.Bloomberg last month shocked no one with the news that thousands of Amazon employees around the world listen in on Echo owners’ conversations (allegedly to improve the technology).More troubling is the fact that workers can also access location information of Alexa users and look up their home or office address.The California bill—introduced in February by Cunningham—defines “smart speaker devices” as a wireless speaker and voice command device with an integrated virtual assistant “that offers interactive actions and hands-free activation.”Should the legislation pass, it would severely handicap services like Amazon’s Alexa, Siri from Apple, and Google Assistant (among a handful of others).“We’re monitoring this developing legislation,” a Google spokeswoman told Geek in an emailed statement. “That said, we believe that the combination of strong and balanced regulations, with products that are designed with privacy in mind, will help provide individuals with confidence that they’re in control of their personal information.”As Digital Trends pointed out, California is not the first state to try to limit digital eavesdropping: Illinois previously attempted to pass a similar law, which Google and Amazon lobbied against.More on Geek.com:Stop Ignoring Your Smart Speaker’s Privacy FunctionsUK Gov’t Uses Alexa, Google Assistant to Dispense InfoAmazon Accidentally Sent 1,700 Alexa Recordings to a Random Person9 Times Your Smart Speaker Got WeirdEditor’s note: This article was updated on May 7 with comment from Google.

‘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.

Amazon to Showcase Small Businesses in UK Pop-Up Shops

first_imgStay on target Amazon is opening 10 brick-and-mortar shops across the UK in an effort to promote small businesses.The tech titan partnered with Enterprise Nation, Direct Line for Business, and Square to launch a new program aimed at boosting small-brand growth, in-store and online.A year-long pilot will enable more than 100 small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) to sell directly on the high street via Clicks and Mortar pop-ups.The first location opened today on St. Mary’s Gate in central Manchester, with more coming soon to the Midlands, Yorkshire, and across South East England, as well as Scotland and Wales.Each store will stock a range of brands—everything from homeware, health, and beauty products to food, drink, and electronics. That includes foldable Swifty Scooters for adults, leather Torro Cases for electronic devices, and Altr for Men skincare products.“The up-and-coming brands have all built successful online businesses and now want to explore physical retail for the first time,” according to a company press release.Amazon is not usually associated with small biz owners. In fact, it’s often treated as a big bad—a giant carelessly stomping on anything in its path.But the firm has been working with independent sellers for nearly 20 years, boasting tens of thousands of UK-based small businesses trading their goods on Amazon’s global sites.“Small businesses are one of our most important customer groups, and we’re thrilled to work with Enterprise Nation to design a comprehensive package to help entrepreneurs across the UK grow their businesses, both in-store and online,” Doug Gurr, UK Country Manager for Amazon, said in a statement.With that in mind, the company announced a new £1 million ($1.3 million) fund to train 150-plus workers through a mix of in-work, online, and classroom coaching.The so-called “apprenticeships” last 15 to 18 months, and are open exclusively to any brand-owning SME registered in England that currently sells on Amazon and has a turnover of less than £1 million.“From giving up-and-coming online British brands the chance to experience physical retail, to funding the training of full-time apprenticeships and helping to increase SME exports,” Gurr said, “Amazon is committed to supporting the growth of small businesses—helping them boost the economy and create jobs across the UK.”More on Geek.com:Amazon’s Automatic Packing Machines Could Replace 1,300 JobsAmazon Key Now Delivers to Ford, Lincoln VehiclesDrunk Shoppers Blow $48B Annually—Mostly on Amazon Amazon Employees Join Sept. 20 Global Climate WalkoutGeek Pick: Amazon Smart Plug Puts Alexa in Your Walls last_img read more

The deputy noticed the snake immediately.center_img The deputy “started to approach, he sees that it is a rather large rattlesnake. And of course, he stays very calm and as he approaches the folks, the snake is kind of slithering away,” Rowland said.Before the situation escalated, the deputy was able to direct the couple to safety.In a video shared Friday on the Maury County Sheriff’s Department Facebook page, the deputy can be heard waking the couple and then giving careful instructions. “Don’t move… Roll toward me,” the deputy instructed the couple.The man stood up didn’t exactly “roll,” though. He stood up and bolted.Fortunately, the rattlesnake didn’t strike.“So many life lessons to be learned in this video,” the Maury County Sheriff’s Department said on the Facebook post.“They didn’t follow it just exactly right, but fortunately it worked out,” said Rowland.Rattlesnakes are common in Tennessee. Of Tennessee’s 32 snakes, only four are venomous. The Timber Rattlesnake is is the largest, and the most dangerous, of the four venomous snakes in Tennessee, according to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency.

Irresponsible Video Game Predictions for E3 2019

first_img Are you actually excited for E3 this year? Normally, that would be an easy “Yes!” After all, E3 is that special time of the year when everyone in the whole video game industry gathers to show off its future toys. That includes the public now, too. But even with the extra attendees, something about the energy of this year’s upcoming show just feels… lower. Fewer folks are going. Bigger games are being shown off outside of the event. And really we’re just stuck in a bit of a limbo since no one is quite ready to talk about the next-generation Xbox, PlayStation 5, or even the upgraded Nintendo Switch that are all clearly in the works.Still, we expect to see plenty of awesome video game announcements at E3 2019. And here are some predictions, along with some rumors and leaks, about what those announcements will be.NintendoNintendo will still deny the existence of a Switch mini but seeing portable-friendly games like Pokemon, Fire Emblem, Luigi’s Mansion, Animal Crossing, and an actual remake of a Game Boy Zelda game all back to back will pretty much give it away.Super Mario Maker 2 is already shaping up great (aside from a weird lack of online co-op with friends) but the last-minute reveal of a new theme will put it over the top for the June Launch. And that theme will be Super Mario… Odyssey!Animal Crossing just barely makes its 2019 release window by launching in December. But the wait will be worth it when we see not just how big these new towns are but their intimacy as well. Politics are back, baby!Another surprising Microsoft game will wind up on Switch whether it’s Ori, Rare Replay, or the Halo Master Chief Collection.Now that 64GB cards are about to be a thing, even more surprising ports will wind up on Switch including, finally, Grand Theft Auto V.Retro Studios gets its old projects off its plate, Metroid Prime Trilogy HD and Star Fox Grand Prix, before fully committing to Metroid Prime 4.Pikmin 3 is our last Wii U port for a good long time. Retail listing leaks have already pointed to the existence of a new Contra, Witcher 3 on Switch, some kind of roller derby battle game from Ubisoft, Watch Dogs Legion set in London where you control strangers, a Darksiders reboot, and a post-Activision Destiny 2 expansion set on the moon.Square Enix’s Marvel’s Avengers project looks so much like Destiny/Anthem but for superheroes that it just raises hype for Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3.At Bethesda, Fallout 76 gets a massive overhaul on the level of Final Fantasy 14: A Realm Reborn, but Starfield and Elder Scrolls 6 hibernate until they can be fully introduced for next-gen. Doom Eternal makes this easier to swallow.Ubisoft’s next Nintendo collaboration is a Mario+Rabbids sequel with more Mario RPG elements alongside the tactics gameplay. Fire Emblem but for Mario.EA finally makes a Star Wars game that doesn’t break any laws.Cyberpunk 2077 steals the show yet again.Half-Life 3 is a Playdate exclusive. Watch: Marvel and Square Enix’s ‘Avengers’ Gameplay Still Creeps Us OutPlay These E3 2019 Video Games Right Now Third-Party SonyWhile many games shown off at E3 will wind up on PlayStation 4 (and probably the PlayStation 5) Sony itself has already said it won’t be attending the show this year. We already made our guesses as to why that’s happening. So Death Stranding, Ghost of Tsushima, and Last of Us 2 all being no-shows isn’t a prediction, it’s a fact. Hopefully Knack 3 somehow slips under the cracks though.For more on what to expect at E3 2019 check out this feature on our sister site PCMag.com Stay on target MicrosoftA Microsoft character will appear in Super Smash Bros.

‘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 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

first_img Jason Namako RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Google+ Now Playing Up Next Videos Articles WWE NXTSeptember 4, 2014Full Sail UniversityCommentators: Tom Phillips, Byron Saxton, Renee YoungRecap by: Jason Namako of Wrestleview.comWe see the usual intro, then go to the opening match.Alexa Bliss vs. NXT Women’s Champion “The Dirtiest Diva in the Game” CharlotteCharlotte with a side headlock takeover.

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. Cara again speaks in Spanish and Kalisto translates by saying that even though the Ascension is a strong tag-team, we are also a strong tag-team. We are skillful and we have that determination to become the new NXT Tag Team Champions. Cara says we look forward to the challenge.Tyle Dillinger vs. “Prince Pretty” Tyler BreezeBreeze works over Dillinger’s arm early. Dillinger counters out with a side headlock.

Dillinger with a forearm and a chop in the corner, then avoids another corner charge.Breeze misses a clothesline, but catches Dillinger with the Beauty Shot for the win.Winner: “Prince Pretty” Tyler Breeze by pinfall (The Beauty Shot)Breeze checks himself in his iPhone afterwards.We go to a promo from Tyson Kidd. 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. Kidd with a gut kick, followed by a series of right hands in the corner. Rose fights back with right hands of his own.

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. Louis with a series of gut shots, right hands and stomps to Zayn in the corner. Backbreaker by Louis for a nearfall. Chinlock applied, crowd wills on Zayn.

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.
