WWE NXT Takeover Results

August 22nd 2015

Report By Bill Pritchard for Wrestlezone.com

Jushin “Thunder” Liger vs Tyler Breeze

Breeze goes for a tie up but Liger evades him and taunts Breeze with his own corner taunt, then puts him in a surfboard stretch. Breeze counters but Liger kicks him in the stomach, then reapplies a surfboard stretch and takes a picture with Breeze’s selfie stick. Breeze catches him with a Supermodel kick for two, then he applies a front facelock and hits a double knee strike for two.

Breeze charges the corner but Liger backdrops him and connects with a rolling heel kick, then he follows with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker and heads up top. Breeze counters a splash with a knee strike on the way down, then catches Liger with a backslide pin for two. Liger comes back with a palm strike and heads up top, but Breeze rolls outside so Liger instead splashes him on the floor. Liger rolls him back in but Breeze escapes a hold, only to have Liger hit him in the corner and he wins it with a Liger Bomb. 

Winner – Jushin “Thunder” Liger
