SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
WWE NXT Results
February 27, 2016
Report by Tom Gibson, PWTorch correspondent
(1) Mojo Rawley beat Alexander Wolfe. Similar match to the Largo one last night.
(2) Peyton Royce beat Liv Morgan via submission. Back and forth action with Liv extremely popular and Royce getting the heat.
(3) Elias Samson beat Patrick Clark from Tough Enough. Samson entered the ring through the audience, sang a song about how bad Sebring was, and got the crowd mad. Boos from everywhere and growing into the character. Neckbreaker for the win win.
(4) Josh Woods & Noah Kekoa beat Blake & Murphy. Unexpected result with all four getting plenty of time in the ring before Kekoa got the pin.
(5) Apollo Crews beat Manny Andrade via pinfall. Another very impressive match from Andrade and worked well with Crews. Constant action and the crowd were really into it.
(6) Dash Wilder & Scott Dawson beat Tucker Knight & Rich Swann. Dawson and Wilder had most of the control with Knight coming in to even things up, but Wilder and Dawson eventually got the pin.
Short promo from Angelo Dawkins about being “The Curse of Greatness.”
(7) Sawyer Fulton vs. Chris Girard (Biff Busick) went to a No contest. Girard sustained a cut to the head after diving out of the ring towards Fulton. The match was stopped. He seemed to be okay.
(8) NXT Women’s champion Bayley beat Alexa Bliss, Asuka, and Emma in a fatal four-way match to retain the NXT Women’s Title. Pretty good match with Alexa and Emma teaming up initially. Bayley won, but strong performances from all four.
NXT champion Finn Balor and Samoa Joe did not wrestle for the second consecutive night after wrestling on the first show of the weekend tour.
