We go Tom Phillips in the interview area with Dana Brooke and Emma. Tom wants to make sure that Dana has calmed down from last week and Dana says that she is fine. She is sure that Asuka will not be.
Tom asks Emma about her match against Asuka next week and if she is ready. Emma says the question is not is she ready for the match but why has Asuka had the red carpet rolled out for her since Day One because that was not done for her or Dana. Asuka was a big deal in Japan, but this is NXT. This Revolution didn’t start without the Emmalution. She paved the way before you heard about Bayley, Sasha, Charlotte, or Asuka. At Takeover, the Emmalution will be the solution to take care of Asuka.
Dana says they might take a closer look at Asuka’s match tonight because they can and they are in control. Dana tells Tom to get down so she can pat Tom on the head because he is so tall.
Asuka versus Deonna Purrazzo
Asuka with kicks to the back and then to the midsection. Deonna blocks a kick and connects with a forearm. Asuka with a running butt block and then Emma’s music plays and she comes out with Dana Brooke to distract Asuka and watch the action.
