A quick recap of NXT Takeover: New York from this past Friday.
“All Out Life” by Slipknot
Candice LeRae vs Aliyah w/ Vanessa Borne
(referee: Darryl Sharma)
Result: Candice LeRae wins via pinfall after a springboard moonsault
Good match. Aliyah seemed to take Candice lightly throughout much of the match, and Candice seemed like she wanted to prove a point. Vanessa Borne was barely a factor at ringside, so despite one small distraction, most of the match was decided within the ropes. I liked the match, and I think Aliyah, could finally be getting good enough to be on TV more. LeRae is already ready to get into the title picture.
A recap of the North American Title match at Takeover between Matt Riddle and Velveteen Dream.
From Wrestlemania, Velveteen Dream talks as Buddy Murphy passes by after losing his Crusierweight Title. Dream wonders where Murphy’s title is, and the two men have some words with each other.
Before Takeover, Triple H and William Regal were with KUSHIDA as he signed his NXT contract.
Danny Burch w/ Oney Lorcan vs Jaxson Ryker w/ Wesley Blake, Steve Cutler
(referee: Eddie Orengo)
Result: Jaxson Ryker wins via pinfall after a sitout chokeslam
Burch started strong, but this match ended up a lot like Lorcan’s match against Ryker last week. It was fine for Ryker. I suppose he needed some strong wins if they’re going to make him a dangerous force.
After the match, Ryker starts to attack Burch. Lorcan gets into the ring, but all three of the Forgotten Sons beat up Lorcan.
A recap of the NXT Women’s Title match from Takeover.
Sarah Schreiber welcomes Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir, and Jessamyn Duke. Baszler says it doesn’t matter how many women they put in front or. Baszler will beat them all.
At Takeover after losing the UK Title match, Pete Dunne there will be a rematch.
A recap of the two out of three falls NXT Title match between Gargano and Cole.
After the NXT Title match, Adam Cole had some words with the rest of the Undisputed Era. He also didn’t want the camera to record them.
Street Profits vs Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel
(referee: DA Brewer)
Result: Angelo Dawkins pins Marcel Barthel after an electric chair blockbuster
Very good match. Aichner and Barthel dominated what seemed like at least two-thirds of this match. They looked great, and they quickly built up to what could have been a very good finish. But the match went on, and the Street Profits looked very good in the later part of the match. I liked this a lot. It’s just too bad both teams couldn’t win.
For a recap show, this was good. There were a lot of video clips, but there weren’t so many that I lost interest in the show. The three matches were good, and some of the backstage stuff, though often very short, was fun.
Match of the Night
Street Profits vs Aichner & Barthel
I think both of these teams are great. This match is one of many reasons why I think that way.
