SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
WWE NXT Results
December 11, 2015
Report by Greg Watson, PWTorch reader
For perspective in the market, the ICW promotion sold out the SECC with a 4,000 crowd six weeks in advance last month. NXT had a 5,000-7,000 crowd at the Hydro tonight. ICW is running the Hydro in 2016.
(1) Enzo & Cass beat Blake & Murphy with Air Enzo.
(2) Bull Dempsey beat Tye Dillinger with a big splash. The “Perfect 10” gimmick was very over in Glasgow.
(3) Asuka beat Alexa Bliss with the Asuka Lock.
(4) Neville beat Baron Corbin with the Red Arrow.
(5) NXT tag champions Dash & Dawson beat Chad Gable & Jason Jordan via tights-assisted roll-up. Gable and Jordan were really over, with various soccer-style chants supporting them.
(6) NXT Women’s champion Bayley beat Emma with Bayley-to-belly. Bayley was ridiculously over with the somewhat smarky crowd.
(7) Samoa Joe beat Apollo Crews with the Muscle Buster. Good showing from Crews. He got some “Uhaa” chants.
Before the main event, Finn Balor did a Grado act, and sold the fans’s “ICW” chant before the main event.
(8) NXT champion Finn Balor beat Sami Zayn with the Double-foot stomp after avoiding the Helluva Kick. Zayn was hugely over; lots of “Ole!” chants.
There were two TLC promos. One got booed and was drowned out by an NXT chant. The other was the Roman Reigns video game one, which was also roundly booed, followed by big cheers during the section where the Reigns animation was Brogue-kicked by Sheamus’s avatar.
