NXT Coverage: Black Mass Puts Cole to Sleep

Four matches that built future storylines and plenty of vignettes (particularly the one for Shayna Bayzler) ensured that this was a beefy episode of NXT that didn’t let up.


NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas w/Zelina Vega vs. Fabian Aichner: Albas got the win with the Hammerlock DDT, thanks to interference from Vega, but Aichner was amazing and more than held his own in the quick bout.

Danny Birch and Only Lorcan vs. The Authors of Pain: Akam and Rezar w/Paul Ellering: Lorcan and Birch were stiff and strong, but TAOP fought back hard and fast and won with the Super Collider and Last Chapter.

NXT Women’s Champion Ember Moon vs. Peyton Royce w/Billie Kay: Royce got in some licks, but Moon won with the Eclipse. After the match, Kay and Royce beat on Moon, but Nikki Cross made the save.

#1 Contenders Tournament: Aleister Black vs. Adam Cole: Cole pandered to the crowd and nearly won on a few occasions with the Tye-Breaker and a Super Kick, but Black won with the Black Mass.
