Squash. Like, a two move squash.


Ring Area
After the match, Lars Sullivan says this match is a warning and an example of what will keep happening until he gets an NXT Title match. To illustrate how serious he is, Sullivan sets Murray up for another Freak Accident. Before Sullivan can hit the move, Keith Lee runs down to the ring. Murray is thrown from the ring, and Lee knocks Sullivan down to the mat. Sullivan rolls out of the ring and walks up the ramp as Lee smiles.

Match 3
Nikki Cross vs Candice LeRae
(referee: DA Brewer)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Nikki Cross wins via pinfall after a draping twisting neckbreaker
Time: 7:01

Match Thoughts
Very good match. As the announcer’s were saying, Johnny Gargano’s state of mind seems to be affecting Candice. She wrestled a strong, aggressive match. She was angry, and she took that anger out on Nikki. Nikki seemed a little surprised by Candice’s aggression at times, but it didn’t really affect Nikki too much. Nikki did have to fight hard to overcome the more aggressive Candice though.


Show Impressions
This was a Takeover wrap-up show, so except for the main event, there wasn’t really much worth watching if you saw WarGames.

Match of the Night
Nikki Cross vs Candice LeRae
This match is definitely worth watching though.
