NXT Coverage: 1916 All Over Again

A handful of solid matches, but the continued drama surrounding the NXT Title made sure that the Yellow Brand stayed hot after Survivor Series.


Keith Lee and Dominic Dijakovic vs. NXT Tag Team Champions: Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong (replacing injured Bobby Fish): This was a war from start to finish and featured an interesting end as Lee pounced Adam Cole into the crowd, but left Dijak wide open for the Hi/Lo so Fish and Strong could retain their titles.

Shane Thorne vs. Mansoor: Thorne didn’t lay down, but Mansoor got the win with the Springboard Neckbreaker.

Candice LeRae vs. Dakota Kai: Kai has gone full heel and lost via DQ and continued to beat on LeRae before Rhea Ripley made the save.

Cruiserweight Champion Lio Rush vs. Akira Tozawa: Excellent match that saw a mistake from Tozawa cost him as Rush won with a pair of Frog Splashes.

Xia Li vs. Vanessa Borne w/Aliyah: Li won quickly with the Kick, but Shayna Baszler and her cronies hit the ring and beat on her before Rhea Riley said she wanted a piece.

Tommaso Ciampa vs. Finn Balor: Adam Cole ended up costing Ciampa the match and Balor finished him off with the 1916. After the match, Balor took out Cole as well.
