After the opening credits we head to Full Sail where Mauro gives us a run down of the matches we’ll see tonight. In addition Drew McIntyre and Andrade “Cien” Almas will sign a contract to make their championship match at TakeOver: Houston. Prepare to see a table get flipped over!

The show begins outside the Full Sail Arena. Sanity and security geeks are all laid out. People call for Regal who shows up and tells someone to get the medics as the unknown assailants run off into the night.

Inside the arena Percy Watson is like, “It must have been those ROH guys!” and Nigel McGuiness is like, “You don’t know that. It could have been anyone.” None of this matters though because the champ is here! Continue reading “NXT (August 30, 2017)”

Match 1: Killian Dain (w/ Eric Young) vs. Danny Burch

Danny Burch tries to fight Killian Dain at the bell, unloading with some strikes and kicks that Dain more or less shrugs off before he beats Burch down. He hits a slam and a running senton that lay out Burch.

The crowd starts chanting “SHAVE YOUR BACK!” at Dain. Audience participation I can appreciate. Dain does not shave his back, but instead hits some elbow drops.
