Match Thoughts
This was kind of short, but it was very fun. Fandango looked great, and he was legal for most of the match. This was a great welcome back for Fandango and Breezango.

Match 2
NXT Breakout Tournament Final Match
Jordan Myles vs Cameron Grimes
(referee: Jessika Carr)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Jordan Myles wins vis pinfall after the Midnight Star (450 splash)
Time: 9:41

Match Thoughts
Good match. Myles had a game plan to go after Grimes’s knee, and he stuck to that plan for much of the match. Grimes just seemed to want to beat Myles down with a relentless attack, and that helped him take control of the match a few times. This was evenly fought throughout, and both guys looked good. Personally, I was 100% pulling for Myles in this match, though I hope we get to see more of both guys on NXT.


Ring Area
After the match, William Regal comes out to the stage and presents the winner of the Breakout Tournament with a contract for a title match of his choice.


Show Impressions
This was one of the few post-TakeOver shows that actually had a really important match on it. The matches are usually fun, but I was really looking forward to seeing Myles versus Grimes. They didn’t disappoint. Plus, seeing Breezango finally back in the ring together was a great bonus. Otherwise, this was basically just a recap of TakeOver: Toronto.

Match of the Night
Jordan Myles vs Cameron Grimes
I think they could have a good feud if they choose to go that way.
