The following matches were taped on June 13 in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University for tonight’s NXT television show. The match comments are from Zack Zimmerman’s (@DotNetZim) in-person report on the taping.
-Tyler Breeze pinned Jaxson Ryker (w/Steve Cutler, Wesley Blake). Breeze got the win with a surprise roll up. Afterwards, he got beaten down until Fandango made his return for the save. The crowd danced and sang like it was Raw-after-Mania 2013 as the babyfaces stood tall.
-Cameron Grimes pinned Bronson Reed in the semifinals of the Breakout Tournament. Malcolm Bivens (formerly Stokley Hathaway) was brought into the arena and seated in the front row to observe this match. Decent match. Grimes won with the Caveman Stomp.
-NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler came out for a promo. She addressed Mia Yim, who apparently cut a promo on her and attacked Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke (none of which the live crowd saw). Mia Yim came out and said that Baszler looks a bit out of her element without her usual backup. Baszler called Yim street trash and held her title up to close the segment. It looks like that’s the Women’s Championship match for Toronto.
-Pete Dunne over Roderick Strong by submission. Good match, but not quite as good as one might hope for. Afterwards, Velveteen Dream came out to face off with Dunne. Dunne snapped Dream’s finger and laid him out with the Bitter End to close the show.
