NXT Live Event
Plymouth, England
Report by Dot Net reader Steven Dunne

All in all, an incredible event and I would highly recommend going to see NXT live at least once.

1. Hugo Knox beat Wesley Blake. The crowd were solidly behind Knox, being from England, and were on Blake’s case the entire match. Notable chants were “Where’s Alexa?”, “What’s Your Name?” and “Robbie Savage” (a British soccer analyst who bears a striking resemblance to Blake. Knox seemed highly amused by this, being a former soccer pro himself. Knox got the win with a split-legged moonsault. I was pleasantly surprised by Knox, who has a lot of agility for a guy as ripped as he is.

2. Alexander Wolfe (w/Sawyer Fulton) beat Angelo Dawkins. For some reason, a D-Lo Brown chant broke out during this one. I presume because Wolfe’s ring gear looks a bit like a chest protector. Anyway, Fulton was ejected by the ref earlier on, but ran back down to distract the ref, giving Wolfe the chance to rake Dawkins’ eyes and roll him up for the win.

3. Bayley and Carmella beat Alexa Bliss and Peyton Royce. As you might imagine, the roof blew off for Bayley’s entrance. Bayley and Carmella then did Enzo and Cass’ “spell it out” bit that went over huge. There were a few chants of “Green Army” for the heels, who were both in green (a reference to the local soccer team, the mighty Plymouth Argyle). after some back and forth, Bayley got the win for her team after a belly-to-Bayley on Royce.

4. Bobby Roode beat No Way Jose. Roode got a huge ovation which was then overshadowed by that of his opponent, No Way Jose. Roode started with some classic heel stalling tactics before the match broke into some comedy with Jose and Roode popping and locking. Things soon got serious and Jose had a close two count with his baseball wind up punch. He went for his full nelson slam which was countered into a huge spinebuster by Roode which was good for the win.

5. Andrade “Cien” Almas beat Tye Dillinger. Dillinger was out next to extremely loud “10” chants. He took the mic and was buttering up the crowd with talk about how our energy was pumping up the talent before stating that he would never set foot in Plymouth again. Almas got a lot of “Sí” chants. Alma got the win with his double moonsault.

There was a brief intermission.

6. American Alpha beat The Revival by DQ in an NXT Tag Title match. American Alpha were over HUGE with the crowd, with the usual chants and one I hadn’t heard before based off the “Will Grigg’s On Fire” song that is inexplicably popular over here. The match was very similar to their contest from Takeover Dallas. The end came when American Alpha hit Grand Amplitude on Dash but Dawson crawled out from under the ring to pull the ref out before he could count the three, drawing the disqualification. Gable and Jordan were understandably unhappy with this but took their time leaving the ring as Plymouth absolutely loved them.

7. Asuka beat Nia Jax to retain the NXT Women’s Title. Again, similar to their match from the last Takeover with the same finish. Asuka hit a headkick, Jax screamed at her and then Asuka came back with another kick for the win.

8. Finn Bálor and Shinsuke Nakamura beat Samoa Joe and Austin Aries. Balor came out first to a massive pop before the lights went out and Nakamura’s music hit for the biggest pop of the night. The crowd chant “Balor, Balor, give us a wave” which he did to great applause. The finish came with Nakamura hitting Kinshasa on Aries followed by a Coup De Grace by Balor for the W. After the match, Balor took the mic to thank the crowd for their support and listed where they’ve been over the last two weeks. Nakamura took the mic and asked everyone to join in on his “yeaoh” victory shout, ending the show.
