WWE NXT Live Results
July 7, 2016
Ft. Pierce, Fla.
Report by Tom Gibson, PWTorch correspondent
Andrea di Marco and Charly Caruso were hosts.
(1) Hugo Knox beat Patrick Clark. Good opening match. Knox used a lot of cruiserweight-type moves, and Clark using more mat-based moves. Knox was almost counted out of the ring at one point before returning to get the pin.
(2) Carmella & Bayley beat Daria & Mandy. Initially Daria and Mandy ganged up on Carmella, but Bayley arrived and they cleared the ring. The match then started and Bayley eventually pinned Daria.
(3) Dan Matha beat Bronson Matthews. They stared at each other before starting slowly. It developed into a high-impact match with Matha getting a chokeslam and pin. Matha got a lot of “Mr. Clean” chants.
(4) No Way Jose beat Angelo Dawkins. A lot of fiesta-ing to start with and a long build-up to the match. After sustaining some light damage to the ‘fro, NWJ got Dawkins’s headband, which Dawkins then won back with Dawkins controlling the match. NWJ finally got the initiative to get the pin.
(5) American Alpha beat TM61. Great match. Even action to start before TM61 isolated Jordan. He eventually got the tag for Gable to take the initiative and double-team one of TM61 for the pinfall win.
(6) Mojo Rawley beat Wesley Blake. Unexpectedly short match but pretty good. Blake’s new attire has some similarity to Wonderwoman’s and the crowd let him know. Rawley won by pinfall.
Promo from Steve Cutler. Well-executed, with a grievance over indy stars and athletes coming in and being fast-tracked.
(7) Alexa Bliss beat Ember Moon. Even match with a lot of skill on both sides. Alexa won by pinfall.
(8) Hideo Itami & Oney Lorcan & Andrade “Cien” Almas beat NXT tag champions The Revival (Dash & Dawson) & Austin Aries in a six-man tag match. Long match with Lorcan isolated for a big part of it. Andrade and Itami then came in with some high-flying kicks from Andrade and Itami pinning Aries.
