NXT, WWE’s most popular brand, returned to the road last night to begin the first of several live events leading up to NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV on August 18.
In the wake of the Undisputed Era regaining the NXT Tag Team Championships from Moustache Mountain on Wednesday, arguably the most popular bloc in the company today headlined the event in Sanford, Florida, against the trio of the Street Profits and Babatunde Aiyegbusi.
While rumor states that Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong will defend the coveted straps against Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins at the upcoming pay-per-view, it was the trio of champions who prevailed on this night. In the Undisputed Era, WWE has four stars on which to build the future of the industry.
The rest of the show was somewhat a surprise. Instead of packing it with star names such as EC3, Ricochet, Johnny Gargano, Velveteen Dream and so on, the development brand decided to showcase a host of new faces and fresh signees among the known talent.
One of the happenings which stood out the most is Kassius Ohno competing and winning twice. Once against the excellent Danny Burch. On NXT television, Ohno has been on a losing streak, so this should serve as the foundations of an attitude and character change for the ‘Knockout Artist’.
In results from the rest of the show:
- The War Raiders rolled over Cezar Bononi and Adrian Jaoude
- Jessie Elaban and Candice LeRae cracked Aliyah and Reina Gonzalez
- Kassius Ohno best Mars Wang. Following the bout, Ohno issued an open challenge which was answered by Danny Burch.
- Kassius Ohno downed Danny Burch
- Christopher Dijak went over Brennan Williams
- Kona Reeves prevailed against Tucker Knight
- Kairi Sane whitewashed Taynara Conti
- Wesley Blake triumphed over Cheng Yuxiang
