Last night was NXT Takeover, the second live NXT special on the WWE Network. Here’s a recap:
– NXT Champion Adrian Neville successfully retained against Tyson Kidd in the main event.
– Charlotte defeated Natalya in the finals of the NXT Women’s Championship tournament to be crowned the new champion. Ric Flair was in Charlotte’s corner, while Bret Hart was in Natalya’s. Prior to the match, WWE Divas Champion Paige came out and brought the NXT Women’s championship to ringside.
– Tyler Breeze defeated Sami Zayn in a phenomenal match to become the #1 contender to Adrian Neville’s NXT Championship.
– The Ascension defeated Kalisto and El Local to retain the NXT Tag Team titles.
– Rusev (with Lana) came out during the show and dismantled Mojo Rawley.
– Adam Rose defeated Camacho in the opening contest. Rose was very over and showed a lot more potential in the ring than we’ve seen on WWE television since his debut.
– The dark match that took place prior to Takeover going live on the WWE Network saw Bayley defeat Sasha Banks with her “Bayley to Belly” suplex finisher.
– Michael Cole, WWE legend Haku (father of NXT star Camacho), former TNA Knockout SoCal Val, Cesaro and actor Kris Kristofferson (father of NXT star Garrett Dylan) were all in attendance.
– Overall, the event was seen as another huge success. The entire NXT roster was at Full Sail University watching the show on a big screen at the campus auditorium.
