Tonight’s show kicked off with a brutal beatdown and ended with a promise of more Extreme things to come. I have everything covered from start to finish. Great night of action and a few big announcements too. As always Thank You for reading. Enjoy!
- Shayna Baszler def. Dakota Kai via referee stoppage
- Kassius Ohno def. Raul Mendoza
- Lars Sullivan def. Lio Rush
- NXT Tag Team Champions Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly def. Aleister Black & Roderick Strong to retain the gold
Shayna Baszler is a the Samoa Joe of the women’s division. She made Dakota Kai look silly and Kai is a very talented athlete. Shayna destroyed Dakota’s arm and the ref stopped the match due to obvious injury. Shayna wasn’t done though as she choked out Kai until Ember Moon came to Kai’s aide. Shanya is all business and has no heart. Ember Moon better get ready.
Ohno defeated Raul Mendoza in a back and forth match. This match didn’t do much for me really. I think Ohno will not make it to the main roster and if he does they will eat him alive. Raul Mendoza has potential but NXT is where he needs to be.
Lars Sullivan is a beast! I have said it before and I will say it again, this dude is strong! He tossed a great competitor Lio Rush around the ring like a rag doll. Lio did land some solid strikes early but it wasn’t enough. Not sure what’s next for Lars in NXT but I would love to see him enter the Royal Rumble.
The scheduled tag team championship match didn’t happen because Undisputed Era ambushed Sanity early in the night but GM William Regal made an impromptu match. The NXT Tag Team Champions Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly were now scheduled to face the unlikely team of Aleister Black & Roderick Strong. The two men who have been the biggest roadblock for Undisputed Era. This match was very entertaining and in the end Undisputed Era won the numbers game. The celebration was cut short when Regal came out to make a huge match announcement!
- Street Profits vs Authors of Pain confirmed for next week (#1 Contenders Match)
- Dakota Kai might have suffered a serious arm injury
- Aleister Black vs Adam Cole confirmed Extreme Rules Match at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia on Saturday, Jan. 27.
