American Alpha def. The Revival to win the NXT Tag Team Championships
Adam: AA – 3.75/5 | John: AA – 3.5/5 | Katelyn: AA – 3.75/5
- Crowd clearly into this at the beginning
- Nice little exchange early on between Gable and Dawson
- Each team has a great section of offense, fans are super into this match
- Really bad botch though from Dash and Dawson, Botchamania bay-bay!!!
- Great tag breakups from Dash and Dawson
- And after an exchange of pinfall attempts, Gable finally gets the pin with their double team finisher
Austin Aries def. Baron Corbin
Adam: Aries – 3.25/5 | John: Corbin – 2.75/5 | Katelyn: Corbin – 3.25/5
- God damn it, Austin you’re distracting Katelyn with the sparkly shorts!
- Surprised the fans seem to be right down the middle between the two of them, I didn’t think there was much of a fanbase for Baron Corbin
- Aries really selling Corbin’s offense, flopping around like a fish in the ring
- Aries with the sudden win after a rollup from countering the End of Days
Shinsuke Nakamura def. Sami Zayn
Adam: Nakamura – 4.75/5 | John: Nakamura – 5/5 | Katelyn: Nakamura – 4.75/5
- Here we go, I’ve been waiting forever for this moment
- The theme: FUCKING AMAZING!
- The entrance: BADASS AS FUCK!!!
- The look: Nothing’s changed, perfect!
- Holy shit indeed
- The style is the exact same, I’m shaking watching this match
- Zayn turns heel by countering the foot shake in the corner
- Even Corey Graves is calling him Swagsuke
- They really are letting Shinsuke do all his offense, even those really violent knees on the ground
- Massive exchanges of blows, looks like Shinsuke may have gotten his nose busted
- Great near-fall with the Blue Thunder Bomb after missed Helluva Kick and Boma Ye attempts
- Finally, Shinsuke with the Boma Ye to win an incredible match
Asuka def. Bayley to win the NXT Women’s Championship
Adam: Bayley – 4/5 | John: Asuka – 4.25/5 | Katelyn: Bayley – 4.25/5
- The first five minutes are evenly matched, Bayley’s not getting dominated like against Nia Jax, Asuka’s looking a little more human
- Little things with Bayley’s foot being hurt, she loosens the boot a bit
- It’s so refreshing to see Bayley getting submission crazy too, focusing on Asuka’s knees
- Out of nowhere after fighting the Asuka Lock, Bayley passes out and doesn’t top out, we have a new champion!
Finn Balor def. Samoa Joe to retain the NXT Championship
Adam: Joe – No to Balor Club – 4/5 | John: Joe – Yes to Balor Club – 4.25/5 | Katelyn: Joe – Yes to Balor Club – 4.25/5
- Texas Chainsaw Massacre entrance for the demon and some new colours, a little blue in there this time around
- Almost immediately Joe with a massive cut over his eye
- Joe is fighting even harder now, it’s like they’re trying to kill each other
- Match is kind of stopped to fix the cut, Graves picks up on it well and the crowd with a “PG Sucks!” chant, doesn’t matter, he’s still bleeding like a stuck pig
- Match stopped again, fans are super pissed about this, now turning to “Fuck PG!” chants
- Muscle Buster for a near-fall, Coup de Grace doesn’t amount to anything but another rollup by Finn suddenly gets the win
Overall Score: 4.5/5
