NXT Live Event Results (12/12) Sheffield, England: Samoa Joe vs Apollo Crews, Zayn & Corbin Challenge Balor!

Enzo Amore and Colin Cassady

defeated Blake and Murphy

– Blake and Murphy received quite a lot boos. The atmosphere was hot with way more crowd interaction than any WWE Raw live event I’ve been to. Big Cass and Enzo were huge crowd favourites (how you doing chants). Cass is gonna kill you chants are really popular and they score the win great match.

Bull Dempsey beat Tye Dillinger

Samoa Joe beat Apollo Crews

NXT Women’s Championship

Bayley (c) defeated Emma (w/Dana Brooke)

– Huge pyro for Bayley, way more than a normal house show. Emma completely dominated the match, but Bayley kept the title with a win heading into London. Great match crowd. I loved every second, especially Dana being ejected from ringside.

  • Intermission. Every TLC advertisement received loud boos, which was so funny.
  • After a 15-minute break, William Regal came out and thanked the fans for turning NXT from 50 fans to the 5,000 here tonight. Huge pop for Regal.

NXT Tag Team Championship

Scott Dawson and Dash Wilder (c) 

defeated Chad Gable and Jason Jordan

– There was loud chanting for Gable and Jordan. Mid match, an intruder ran in the ring towards Gable, but he was apprehended before he could do anything. Security ejected the fan from the ringside to loud applause (it is worrying to see how easy he skipped past security to get in the ring). I genuinely thought Jordan was going to throw a punch at the fan. Dash rolled up Gable after interference from Wilder. Jordan and Gable stayed out after match and soak up applause great match again.

Asuka defeated Carmella

– Huge applause for both, but Asuka got the biggest pop. Asura won via submission. All hugs at the end. I’d say the show is running at least 20 mins late at this point, as it was advertised as a 9.50 p.m. finish and we are still awaiting main event two minutes before the scheduled finish time.

NXT Championship

Finn Balor (c) defeated Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin

Corbin was booed, Zayn got the biggest pop of night by far, and Balor got a huge pop. Balor won another great match. What a night. Forget Raw and Smackdown, this is the place to be. 10/10. Great show. After the match, Balor and Zayn danced together to close the show.
