NXT Takeover



Evening folks. Jody Jamieson here with NXT Takeover: The End. 5 matches for the card tonight, which gets underway at 1am BST.

Main event is Samoa Joe defending the NXT Championship against Finn Balor in a steel cage match. We have Asuka vs Nia Jax for the NXT Women's Championship. Also American Alpha defend the Tag Team Titles against the Revival. Andrade "Cien" Almas makes his debut against my new favourite wrestler, Tye Dillinger. And of course, Shinsuke Nakamura vs Austin Aries in a potential show stealer!

Pre-show is on right now. If anything interesting happens I'll let you know, but most likely I'll be back in 15 minutes with the show!

We start with the video. It's a history of title reigns in NXT. They show Izzy bawling at Bayley losing to Asuka in Dallas. They show Joe winning the belt in Lowell. And then they play this wonderful old WWE classic.

And we're live in Full Sail. Opening with THE PERFECT TEN! I love Tye Dillinger.

Here's the promo video. Tye Dillinger meanwhile has the wackiest jacket/cape ever.

Andrade Almas is on his way. The former La Sombra is making his debut and what the hell is he wearing? He looks like Mexican a version of 90s "Ain't I Great?" Jeff Jarrett. Ok...

Luckily this guy can work like hell, so this should be good.

Bell rings. Andrade takes off all his Double J stuff and has some pretty sweet blue tights. Full Sail crowd is fully behind the Perfect 10. Quite right too. Unfortunately, they're likely to be disappointed.

They chant "he's 100" at Andrade. Yes. The crowd knows what cien means. Dillinger takes a hurricanrana and goes to the outside. Almas goes for a dive, Dillinger moves, but Almas sees it and just hangs out in the ropes. Cool spot.
