NXT Results and Highlights

  • Matt Riddle picked up a technical knockout victory over Arturo Ruas in the opening match. Referee had to stop the match after Riddle delivered a set of nasty strikes and took down Ruas. Post-match, a masked man emerged and attacked Riddle. He revealed himself to be Killian Dain, a former member of Sanity, and decimated Riddle with a running senton which sent both men THROUGH the stage. Absolute Carnage!
  • The Street Profits encouraged potential rivals to come find them if they want the smoke, in a special edition of Street Talk, and said they would still be champions after they do.
  • Breakout Tournament: Bronson Reed def. Dexter Lumis after delivering a massive splash.
  • Kushida defeated a returning Apollo Crews from SmackDown Live, by applying an armbar and then transitioning into a Hoverboard submission lock.
  • NXT Champion Adam Cole announced that he is going to put his NXT Championship on the line and called out rookie Twan Tucker for a match. Tucker, though, din’t come alone as Johnny Garnago marched to the ring along with him and started a brawl with the champion. Gargano beatdown Cole but NXT officials managed to break them up. Gargano managed to apply the Gargano Escape to Cole inside the ring but eventually released the hold and exited the ring.
  • NXT General Manager William Regal announced that Adam Cole will defend his NXT Championship against Johnny Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Toronto in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match.
