WHAT HAPPENED @NXT

Posted December 1st, 2016 by 1Wrestling News Team

Tonight’s show begins with the regular opening video. NXT comes to us tonight from Canada. Asuka makes her entrance for the first match. Her opponent is already in the ring.

Match 1: NXT Women’s Champion, Asuka vs. Nicole Mathews in a non-title match.

Mathews comes right out slugging Asuka. The champ, of course, took exception to this harsh treatment and answered back with a hip attack. She followed up with hard kicks to the chest that were so hard they caused Mathews to collapse. Asuka tried to lock in the Fujiwara arm bar and couldn’t quite get a good grip so she morphed it into a cross-arm breaker but Mathews was actually able to roll Asuka’s shoulders to the mat for a quick one count. Asuka was able to maintain control on the arm and locked in the Asuka lock for the submission victory.

Winner: Asuka

Asuka danced around the ring as the announce team hailed her championship reign of 243 days. She stood over her fallen opponent and raised the belt over her head.

Commentators Tom Phillips and Corey Graves welcomed us to the show and quickly turned their attention to Eric Young and Sanity. They threw it to a video of Sanity beating down No Way Jose and Rich Swann from last week. They hype the match between Eric Young and No Way Jose for next. The show goes to break.

We return from commercial and see the graphic of the championship rematch between Samoa Joe and Shinsuke Nakamura this Saturday night in Osaka, Japan. We go to a backstage interview with Joe. Joe is asked to comment on facing Nakamura in Japan for his rematch. Joe says its no surprise he has to face Nakamura so soon because General Manager, William Regal wants the title off Joe. Joe says he proved at Takeover: Toronto that Nakamura is not on his level. He was about to speak on beating Nakamura in his home country and how he’s the best when Tye Dillinger interrupts him.

Dillinger says he needs to prove himself against the best and wants a match against the best tonight. Joe responds that Tye is not on his level and he really doesn’t want to humiliate him in Canada anymore. Joe is hard pressed to think of any reason to step in the ring with Dillinger. Tye says he has ten reasons but will only need one and slaps Joe across the face. Joe screams at him that he will not be walking out of the arena tonight.

We go back to the arena as No Way Jose makes his entrance. The lights go out and Sanity makes its entrance. We are informed that GM Regal has signed Samoa Joe vs. Tye Dillinger as tonight’s main event.

Match 2: No Way Jose vs. Eric Young (with Sanity)

The bell rings and Jose comes out swinging and chopping away on Young. Young takes a high backdrop and takes a timeout to the floor. The other members of Sanity surround the ring but Jose does not lose focus and brings Young back into the ring. He whips Young up and over the corner to the floor as the show goes to commercial.

We are back to find Young dragging Jose to the floor. Young takes a shot but Jose blocks it. Jose tries to get back in but Alexander Wolfe distracts him allowing Young to hit a neckbreaker across the top rope to take control. Young goes for a pin off another neckbreaker but Jose kicks out at two. Young keeps the pressure on with a hard shot in the corner followed by a hanging dragon sleeper from the second rope. Young gets another two count then twists the neck of Jose.

The crowd starts to chant for Jose and he executes a jawbreaker to free himself. Jose ducks a charge from Young and opens up the offense on him. Jose hits a huge running clothesline for a near fall. Jose knocks Wolfe from the apron and nails Young with a pop up right hand for the possible win but Nikki Cross distracts the referee so he doesn’t count. Jose turns his attention to outside the ring and gets nailed from behind by Young. Young finishes with the wheelbarrow neckbreaker for the win.

Winner: Eric Young

Jose was recovering after the bout when Nikki Cross nailed him with a top rope dropkick before leaving the ring area. The main event is hyped for next as we take a commercial break.

We return to find out that, next week, we will hear from the new NXT Tag Team Champions, Johnny Gargano and Tommaso Ciampa, Team #DIY. In the locker room, Asuka is being interviewed and is asked about her apparent change in attitude. Asuka says there has been no change, she’s just the best and wants competition but believes there is none left.

We go back to ringside to see Samoa Joe make his entrance. Dillinger is interviewed backstage just before his entrance and is asked if it was an emotional decision to challenge the champ. Tye said he has been competing in a WWE ring for a while as come up just short. He says that if he can’t beat Joe, maybe he shouldn’t be here. So, he gave Joe a reason and now will go out and prove he belongs. Dillinger makes his ring entrance.

Match 3: NXT Champion Samoa Joe vs. “The Perfect 10,” Tye Dillinger in a non-title bout.

The bell rings and the two men trade chops early. Joe gains control briefly but telegraphs a backdrop and gets caught with a dropkick that sends him rolling to the floor as the show takes a commercial time out.
We return to see Dillinger in control and slamming Joe’s head to the buckle. Dillinger mounts the ropes and pounds Joe with nine fists to the head as the crowd counts along. On the tenth, Joe sets Dillinger on the apron but Dillinger nails him with a jumping right hand for a one count.

Joe grabs Dillinger and throws him to the outside but Dillinger is able to trip Joe and hit a splash onto Joe for a one count. Dillinger appeared to try to hit the Tye Breaker but could not lift Joe. Joe countered with a modified muscle buster that targeted Dillinger’s legs and knees. Joe remained in control and focused his attack on Dillinger’s weekend knees. Joe was able to catch Dillinger in the knee bar submission but Dillinger made it to the ropes to break the hold.

Dillinger made a brief attempt to fight back but Joe quickly cut him off and dropped a hard elbow for a two count. Joe lets loose with the right jabs and screams at Dillinger that this is what he wanted. Dillinger tried to fight back in center ring but Joe countered with a powerslam for a near fall.

Joe continues his dominance with a snap suplex before he mocks Dillinger. Joe sets Dillinger for the beginning of the end with the backsplash and enziguri in the corner leaving Dillinger to fall to the mat in a heap as the show heads to its final break.

We are back to Joe still in firm control of the action. Joe continues his attack on the knees of Dillinger before switching to a rear chinlock. The crowd starts a 10 chant to fire Dillinger up. Dillinger ducks a kick and hits a massive clothesline to try to make a comeback. Dillinger opens up the strikes and gains the upper hand by stomping Joe in the corner. Dillinger goes for the Tye Breaker but cant lift Joe. Joe tries to answer with the Coquina Clutch but Dillinger rolls him up for a two count. Dillinger follows with a massive super kick for a near fall.

Dillinger looks distraught that Joe kicked out as the crowd chants, “This is Awesome!” Dillinger sets for the Tye Breaker again, he gets Joe up but the champ escapes, hits the STO and locks in the Coquina Clutch causing Dillinger to pass out.

Winner: Samoa Joe

As Samoa Joe leaves the area, Dillinger came to as the crowd chanted, “Ten!!” Dillinger looked tormented as he rose to his feet, and waved to the Canadian crowd to close the show.
