– This week’s NXT also saw Tye Dillinger defeat Eric Young, Bobby Roode defeat Oney Lorcan, Andrade “Cien” Almas defeat No Way Jose and Roderick Strong defeat Elias Samson to advance to a Fatal 4 Way Elimination match. That Fatal 4 Way will take place on next week’s episode and the winner will face NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura at “Takeover: Orlando” on January 28th during WWE Royal Rumble weekend.
Below are post-show videos with Almas and Roderick Strong. Strong says he feels like this is right. He said it was “Roddy vs. The World” when he came to NXT and to take NXT over, you have to become champion. Strong says he’s one step away from a title match and that feels great.
