Crowd was rather light tonight for an NXT show, estimated somewhere between 1000-1500 people.
– Lince Dorado def. Wesley Blake in 7:45
Lots of comedy from Blake with some from Dorado. This was a Dorado showcase.
– Liv Morgan def. Aaliyah in just under 7 minutes
This crowd wasn’t into at first, but came around when the pace quickened.
– Authors of Pain def. TM61 in 8:41
Crowd kept chanting “D-Lo Brown” at AOP. It diidn’t seem like anyone was familiar with TMDK but they showed off some impressive work.
– No Way Jose def. Elias Samson in 10:10
Big pop for NWJ ollowing some heel mic work from Samson.
– Bobby Roode def. Cedric Alexander in 13:44
Huge pop for Cedric as he was a surprise, but Roode also got a great reaction. This was the best match of the night with lots of Cedric offense and 2 counts. Roode won after he distracted the ref and low blowed Cedric when the ref couldn’t see it.
– NXT Women’s Champion Asuka def. Peyton Royce in 12 minutes
Asuka took this one, even though we got more Royce offense than expected.
– Tye Dillinger and NXT Champion Nakamura def. Samoa Joe and Austin Aries in 17 minutes
Nakamura hit the Kinshasa to Aries for the pin. Dillinger took most of the match leading up to the Nakamura hot tag. We didn’t get much of the champ in this match as he came out in a neckbrace selling a neck injury. Aries was in there mostly for his team.
