NXT Coverage: Ciampa Makes a Statement

A handful of enjoyable matches and some of the best promo work from Finn Balor to date in the WWE made sure this week’s NXT was far from lackluster.


Io Shirai vs. Candice LeRae: An excellent match that saw Shirai use the heel tactics to her advantage and make sure that a chair became a factor after a LeRae missed Moonsault.

Shane Thorne vs. Bronson Reed: Thorne was game, but Reed won with the Splash.

WWE Women’s Tag Team Champions: The Kabuki Warriors: Asuka and Kairi Sane vs.Tegan Nox and Dakota Kai: The Mist, a Hip Attack and the InSane Elbow got The Warriors the win over a tough opponent.

Tyler Bate vs. Cameron Grimes: A distraction from Killian Dane allowed Grimes to win with the Cave-In. After the match, Dane beats on Bate to send a message to Pete Dunne.

Keith Lee and Matt Riddle vs. The NXT Tag Team Champions: The Undisputed ERA: Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish: TUE got the win, but the real action happened afterward when Tommaso Ciampa hit the ring to even the odds.
