WWE presented their second live NXT
special on the WWE Network Thursday (May 29). “NXT Takeover”
relied almost entirely on the company’s developmental talent, unlike the previous “NXT Arrival,” which heavily features WWE’s top stars.
The match results are as follows:
- Adam Rose beat Camacho
- The Ascension beat El Local and Kalisto
- Tyler Breeze beat Sami Zayn to become #1 contender for the NXT Championship
- Charlotte beat Natalya to become NXT Women’s Championship
- Adrian Neville beat Tyson Kidd
The match of the night was the main event of Adrian Neville vs. Tyson Kidd, but the NXT Women’s Championship bout was simply wonderful. Obviously, Natalya is a huge influence on that, as she’s a great wrestler. That said, Charlotte, daughter of Ric Flair, was a true surprise. She more than held her own in the ring with the veteran Natalya.
The next live WWE Network broadcast will be “Payback” on Sunday (June 1).
