Hello my friends and welcome to NXT Wrestling’s second special, Take Over! The past weeks have all been building up to this and we have some great Main events tonight! A new NXT Womens Champion will be crowned tonight as Natalya battles Charlotte, also Tyler Breeze and Sami Zayn battle over the number one contendership to the NXT title and in our main event Adrian Neville defends his NXT title against Tyson Kidd!
Adam Rose vs. Camacho
We start off the night with Adam Rose and his Exotic Express making their way to the ring from the outside of Full Sail University! It is honestly a brilliant idea to start off with Rose, since he can definitely get the crowd pumped up for the rest of the show! Camacho and Rose have been feuding for about two months now and it honestly has been a pretty decent feud! When I first began to review NXT, Camacho in my opinion was just a jobber, but recently he has been impressing me! These two had a match last week, and Camacho ended up walking out after Rose began to get back on the offense! Hopefully tonight, it does not end that way again! Rose started the match off with his usual games, avoiding any physical contact while making a fool out of his opponent! At one point Rose jumped into Camacho’s arms and just smiled at him until Camacho threw him down and started to bombard him with stomps to the chest. Camacho was not letting up in this match at all, as he heavily dominated the early portions of the match by hitting Rose with many strikes and even mocking the NXT Universe while hitting Rose with an impressive Underhook Suplex! Camacho continued with the stiff strikes, but he hit Rose one to many times and Adam began to power up like he usually does, but Camacho quickly shut that down with a Boot right to the skull of Adam Rose. Camacho locked in a basic headlock and tried to get Rose to pass out, but Adam found a rather interesting way to get out of the headlock. It wasn’t to long before The Party Pooper felt the wrath of Adam Rose! Rose began to hit many of his signature moves including Cho Cho, witch is kind of like a Bronco Buster, but just not with the extra stuff! Rose forced Camacho up and hit him with The Party Foul or Party Pooper(I’m not sure what the name is since the commentators called it both) and covered him for the three count!
Winner – Adam Rose
Rating – 6\10: The match was still a little short and I’m not to sure why! I believe both competitors can hold a longer match, but for what it was, it was still entertaining! Camacho really looked good here tonight as he not only got to show off his move set, but he was the dominate one through out the match! It was also entertaining to see him mock the crowd as well with remarks such as “Party Pooper This,” maybe not the most clever of come backs, but its a start! I fully expected Rose to win here tonight as he continues to win! The NXT Universe was really behind Rose here tonight, and that helps both superstars because it gained Camacho some much needed heat! Now if only Rose can get this reaction on Raw and Smackdown! I’m not sure if the feud between these two are over, but it would probably be for the best that these two find a new rival!
Sami Zayn Video Package
The commentators called this video “Sami Zayn’s Journey to NXT: Take Over.” The video highlighted his feud with Cesaro and there match at the last NXT Special, Arrival! He also talked about his opponent tonight, Tyler Breeze, stating that “He is not my kind of guy!” Zayn expresses that looks don’t matter and after tonight he will become the number one contender to the NXT Championship.
NXT Tag Team Championship
The Ascension (c) |Konner O’Brian & Rick Viktor| vs. Kalisto & El Local
I have been begging for weeks to see The Ascension have a fight! Despite how entertaining their matches tend to be, after awhile it gets boring watching the destroy every team they step into the ring with! Last week after The Ascension put away yet another tag team, El Local and Kalisto came out and challenged them for the tag titles tonight! Before either team made their entrance it was announced that Tyler Breeze is in the building! The Ascension is out first, and it is clear they are over with the NXT Universe as they chant “Ya Ya Ya” at them! Out next are the challengers and to my surprise they did garner some cheers! The crowd seems to be split between the two teams as half chant “Ya” and the other half chant “Lucha Lucha.” Before the match can even begin The tag champs rush at their challengers and begin to beat down on them! Konner and Viktor than bounced Local and Kalisto off the ropes in unison, but both the challengers counter into a head scissors sending both the champions outside of the ring! Viktor and Konner began to power up as Kalisto and Local looked to do an outside dive onto the champs, but they ran right into stiff uppercuts from both the champs! The match finally begins with Kalisto and Viktor in the ring, and things did not look good for Kalisto! Both Konner and Viktor took turns tagging each other in to beat down on Kalisto! After awhile Viktor tossed Kalisto out of the ring and tagged in Konner! O’Brian than began to show off his strength as he grabbed Kalisto by the throat and tosses him into the ropes surrounding the ring! O’Brian went to do it one more time, but Kalisto caught himself and kicked Konner off of him and manged to catch Viktor’s head between his legs and slammed him face first into the apron! Kalisto hurried to tag in his partner, but Konner rushed back into the ring and beat down onto Kalisto until he tagged Viktor! Viktor continued to dish out damage until Kalisto managed to get away and tag in El Local! Local came running in and used his Lucha skills to catch Viktor off guard and after hitting an impressive moonsault he covered Viktor! Konner quickly rushed into the ring to break up the pin, but he paid for it as Kalisto rolled him up and landed a stiff kick onto the neck of Konner! Viktor tossed Kalisto out of the ring, while Local climbed to the top of the turnbuckle and jumped over Viktor, but Viktor quickly turned around and hit Local with a hard clothesline! Viktor and O’Brian took their places in the opposite corners and began to scream before hitting El Local with The Fall of Man to retain their titles!
Winner & Still NXT Tag Team Champions – The Ascension
Rating – 6\10: I was really hoping to see The Ascension challenged tonight, and even though Kalisto and El Local put on a better performance than most, they were still dominated, especially Kalisto! Kalisto took majority of the damage and this match and in my honest opinion, that’s a huge mistake! I hate to say it but El Local is not going anywhere in the future, his name screams enhancement talent, but Kalisto looked promising, up until tonight! Tonight he looked like a rag doll to The Ascension! Either way The Ascension retains their titles and still look to be untouchable!
Tyler Breeze Video Package
Similar to Sami Zayn, we are shown a video package featuring his opponent tonight! We are shown how impressive Tyler Breeze has been as of late as he talks about his looks and how we have not seen everything he has to offer! When talking about Sami Zayn he calls him a loser and calls himself a success! He ends the video by saying he will become the number one contender tonight and he will when the NXT Championship and than NXT can have a champ who is…gorgeous!
Number One Contendership to the NXT Championship!
Sami Zayn vs. Tyler Breeze
It is now time to find how who will be the number one contender for either Adrian Neville’s or Tyson Kidd’s NXT championship! I’ll be honest I think I’m looking forward to this match the most! First out is Sami Zayn coming out to some new music, and I have to be honest! I hate his new theme! It honestly sounds like a Diva’s theme and the way he was dancing down to the ring, just doesn’t feel like Sami Zayn! I wasn’t that big of a Sami Zayn fan to begin with, but this just make me dislike him even more! Out next is Tyler Breeze who is also out to a new theme, and it is so much better than Zayn’s! I wasn’t to sure how I was going to feel about it since I was a big fan of Breeze’s old theme, but once I heard Breeze’s voice singing the song, it won me over. It reminded me a lot of Shawn Micheals who played a gimmick very similar to Breeze’s! I wonder if that is what WWE was going for. I want to apologize ahead of time, because I know I missed some parts of this match due to the WWE Streaming problem! The match began with these two being very careful as the circled each other and waited for the right move. Zayn got the first move in and we got to see some good old classic chain wrestling between these two! but it wasn’t to long until Zayn gained control over the match! At one point we saw Zayn do a Front Flip onto Breeze on the outside of the ring! He quickly tossed him back in and connected with an impressive flying crossbody from the top rope! These two went back and forth throughout the entire match! We saw Zayn hit some impressive moves that I’ve honestly never seen before! Breeze dished out his own damage as well! We saw Tyler hit some heavy strikes and target Zayn’s neck! but Sami Zayn was really impressive here! There was a point towards the end when Zayn did a Springboard Moonsault onto to Breeze on the outside of the ring. It looked like Breeze really hit his head hard against the steel! Zayn was fired about and was looking for that Running Boot into the turnbuckle, but Breeze ducked out of the way and put his hands up to protect himself! Unfortunately for Zayn he ran right into Breeze hands and got struck right into the man parts! The ref questioned Breeze and Breeze simply stated he was protecting himself, and that is what it looked like to me! Tyler Breeze took full advantage of the opportunity though to hit Zayn with The Beauty Shot to pick up the win!
Winner & Number One Contender for the NXT Championship – Tyler Breeze
Rating – 8/10: These two put on a fantastic match here tonight! Whenever Zayn is in the ring I honestly expect a great match, and tonight he did not disappoint! These two went back and forth and showed just how resilient both can be! Zayn pulled out some impressive moves here tonight, especially this one move that looked to be a suplex but turned into a power bomb! They told a story in the ring, and it showed just how bad both these men wanted it! A low blow did mange to aid Breeze for the victory, but it honestly didn’t look intentional to me. If you have the WWE Network, I suggest you watch this match! and if you don’t have the WWE Network, than I just have one question for you, Why? Tonight Sami Zayn and Tyler Breeze put on one hell of a match and I feel this is not the last time we will see them face off and I certainly hope its not the last time!
The Ravishing Russian, Lana comes down to the ring and does not take long to introduce the Super Athlete, Rusev! They make their way down to the ring and Lane begins to cut a promo about Russian and makes sure to bring up Vladimir Putin! It wasn’t to long before Mojo Rawley came out to a new and much better entrance theme! Mojo begins to promote The United States of America and tells Lana and Rusev that here and America we Stay Hype and than goes on to tell Rusev that he is going to come down there and stick The Russian Flag of his Putin! A Nice play on words there by Mojo, but the second he gets into the ring Rusev hits him with a superkick and follows up with a huge splash into the turnbuckle and ends it with The Accolade! After Lana instructs him to let go, he tosses Rawley outside of the ring! After Lana and Rusev pose for a bit in the ring she sends Rusev after Rawley again and this time he locks The Accolade on him again on the entrance way! I’ll admit I got a little excited about a clash between Rusev and Rawley, but after seeing how fast Rusev put away Mojo it may not be the best idea! but something tells me that the man who stays Hype won’t let that slide easily!
NXT Womens Championship!
Natalya W/Bret Hart vs. Charlotte W/Ric Flair
Before this match begins we are shown a well put together video package for this match that highlights both Divas wins to get here and even the family history between these two! Before either competitor can make their way to the ring The former NXT Womens Champion and current WWE Divas Champion, Paige makes her way to the ring! Paige gets into the ring and grabs a mic, she takes this time to thank every body in the NXT Universe and goes on to put over the NXT Womens Championship! She list what it takes to hold the NXT Womens Championship and even states that it holds the key to the future! I’ll admit it does feel a little weird how Paige, who is the youngest Diva on the roster is telling both Charlotte and Nattie how to be successful, but whatever! Out first is Charlotte who comes out to a new theme, that mixes Ric Flair’s theme with some generic rock music, kind of like Curtis Axel’s theme. The Nature Boy makes his way down to the ring with his daughter and I’ve got to say having both Flair and The Hit Man accompany their family to the ring makes this match feel more important than it did before! Out next is Natalya of course being accompanied to the ring by her Uncle Bret Hart! The two divas size each other up, but its not to long until Natalya takes over! Charlotte tried to escape Nattie many times, but Natalya countered every time and made sure she kept Charlotte in her grasps! Nattie was definitely looking to make Charlotte tap out, as she locked in many submission moves and hit Charlotte with many strikes, but The Daughter of The Nature Boy manged to get back into the match and turn things around in her favor! Charlotte used her legs to her advantage, something you don’t see many people do! At one point in the match it looked like Nattie hurt her knee after Charlotte twisted her leg to pull/slam her down onto the outside of the ring! Once the two were back in the ring, it was not long until Natalya was able to lock The Sharpshooter onto Charlotte! It looked like The Dirtiest Diva in the Game was about to tap out, but her leg strength came to the rescue when she managed not only get out of The Sharpshooter but to reverse it into The Figure Four Leg Lock as well! The two divas rolled around the ring turning the Leg Lock around on each other many times! The two rolled towards the apron, where Charlotte pulled herself out of the ring while still holding the submission hold despite Natalya being against the ropes! The ref forced Charlotte to let go, but the damage was done, but to add further pain to her knee, she slammed Nattie’s knee right into the steel steps. Charlotte tossed Natalya back into the ring and locked in The Sharpshooter! It appeared that Natalya was going to submit to her own move, but she got out of it the same way Charlotte did and attempted to lock in her Sharpshooter, but Charlotte kicked her up and rushed to hit Bow Down to the Queen to win the Womens Championship!
Winner & New NXT Womens Champion – Charlotte
Rating – 8\10: These two women went out there and put on one hell of a match! It was back and forth and similar to Zayn vs. Breeze earlier, these two told a story! The family rivalry between these two was the main focus and having both Ric Flair and Bret Hart out there added to it! This can be a feud WWE picks up later when Charlotte makes her way to the main roster! The after match was really special but also confusing! We saw Nattie, Charlotte, Flair and Bret celebrate in the ring and shake each others hands and it was honestly a feel good moment, but what confuses me is what Charlotte is now? Building up to this match Charlotte was portrayed as a heel and now it feels like she is a face, so I don’t know what group she falls under now! Either way Charlotte captures her first title in NXT and becomes only the second diva to hold the NXT Womens Championship!
Tyson Kidd vs. Adrian Neville (c)
Before the match begins, we are shown a video package hyping Adrian Neville! We see him win the title from Bo and defend it against Bo Dallas and Brodus Clay! Neville puts over the facing Bo is different than facing Clay he than goes on to say that him and Kidd are very alike, but he states that he is faster, stronger and more hungry than Kidd! Neville ends the video by stating the NXT Championship is his armor and no one is getting through it! Than we see Tyson getting ready backstage, when his wife Natalya comes up and gives him a hug and kiss and tells him she loves him before Tyson makes his way out to the ring. Tyson makes his way to the ring very quickly and serious! Out next is the NXT World Champion, Adrian Neville! Neville makes his way to the ring the same way he usually does, and after the introductions are done, the match is on! Tyson took advantage early on, reversing everything Neville threw at him and turning it into his own move! This was the theme throughout the majority of this match as Tyson controlled most of the match and whenever Neville tried to get back into control, Tyson quickly turned it into his favor! Tyson brought his A game tonight hitting an impressive Suicide Dive onto Neville and even reversing all of Adrian’s momentum as he his a Russian Leg Sweep on the second rope! Neville did get his own moves in as well, but it felt that every time he got back into the match, Tyson turned it around into his favor! Towards the end of the match Tyson climbed to the top rope and had to fight Neville off him many times, but Neville would not give up as he rushed Tyson one last time and hit a Belly to Belly Suplex from the top rope sending Tyson across the ring! Neville saw his opportunity and climbed to the top of the rope and hit The Red Arrow to pin Tyson for the three!
Winner & Still NXT Champion – Adrian Neville
Rating – 9/10: These two went out there and had one hell of a match! They really made the NXT Championship feel special here tonight! If I was a a casual fan I would think the NXT title was more important than most of the titles on WWE’s main roster, because these two men went to war tonight. Tyson looked great in the ring and honestly looked superior to the NXT Champion! Neville’s resiliency is nothing to laugh at, as you saw here tonight! No matter what Tyson hit him with, The Champ continued to kick out! After the match was over Neville extended his hand to Tyson and thanked him for a great match, but Tyson wanted nothing to do with the champ and simply walked away! I don’t know what is next for Tyson Kidd, but for Adrian Neville, its Prince Pretty himself, Tyler Breeze!
Superstar of the Night – Tyler Breeze
Tonight, despite the fact how Charlotte won her first championship, despite the fact how Adrian Neville retained his title, the one person I keep thinking about is Tyler Breeze! Breeze went in there tonight and showed there is more to him than meets the eye! He had the best match of his career tonight against Sami Zayn and he even won! Beating Sami Zayn is pretty impressive, given how popular he is! but not only did Breeze defeat Sami Zayn, but he became the Number One Contender for the NXT Championship! It is very possible that Breeze could accomplish his goal and become the face of NXT!
