NXT Takeover: 5/20/15 Unstoppable

Tonight, Kevin Owens puts the NXT World Title on the line against Sami Zayn.  We will also see Sasha Banks put her NXT Divas Title on the line against Becky Lynch.  Rhyno Vs Barry Corbin.  This and so much more.

Unstoppable is now.

We are live in Full Sail University, and our first match is Finn Balor Vs Tyler Breeze.

Rich Brennan, Corey Graves, and Byron Saxton welcome us to the show.

Before the show, Hideo Itami was attacked in the parking lot by an unknown assailant.

Hideo has a torn rotator cuff, will be out for a while.

Finn Balor wins the match with a Coup De Gras, after doing a dive off the top of the stage, outside of the ring.  Good match between these two, as always.

Balor is now the Number One Contender to the NXT Title.

Kevin Owens is watching backstage.  Either he’s not impressed with Balor, or he is but seems concerned.

A big dude from “Game of Thrones” is with Stephanie McMahon right now, watching the show.

Footage from NXT on tour is being shown now.

Emma and Dana Brooke are going to face off against Charlotte and Bayley.

Charlotte and Bayley win when Charlotte pins Emma with Natural Selection.

I just think Charlotte is ready for the main roster.

3 weeks ago, Sami Zayn wrestled on Raw, in front of his hometown crowd of Montreal.

Sami is backstage, getting himself ready for the main event.

The newest signees of WWE hopefuls are at ringside.

Rhyno Vs Corbin is now.

Corbin wins the match with End of Days.

This past Monday night, we see the impact Owens made on Raw, with John Cena.

The interview guy wants to get thoughts from Kevin Owens.

Kevin made sure Cena found out NXT Title is the real prize, over Cena’s title.  If Sami believes he will take his title from him, then Owens has some veteran “advice”, if he steps in the ring, he will show that this would be the final time we “see” Sami Zayn.

NXT Tag Title match is up now.  Cass and Enzo Vs Blakley and Murphy.

Murphy and Blakley win when Alyssa Bliss come out to distract Enzo. If Carmella doesn’t want to be the girl, then Alyssa accepted it.

She’s now with Blake and Murphy.

Eva Marie is in attendance, and nobody cares.

Coming up next, NXT Women’s Championship is on the line. Sasha Banks Vs Becky Lynch.

Sasha wins the match with Bank Statement submission, making Becky tap out, after Becky had an Armbar on Sash, but the Women’s Champ escaped to the ropes.

I loved the presentation of this match, filled with dram, excitement, and it started with something so simple, a champions/challenger entrance backstage, in the Gorilla Position.

Great job by both women here.

Becky Lynch is getting a standing ovation from the crowd.

Owens Vs Zayn, for the NXT World Title is up now, our main event.

The match ends in a no contest, after Owens just pummel Zayn. Sami Zayn was nailed into the post by Owens, and Kevin saw blood in the water so to speak.

William Regal came out and tried to stop Owens. This had Owens attack Regal, and gave him a headbutt.

Then we hear some new music, and it’s Samoa Joe. The beginning of his music was a resemblance of TNA theme. The crowd loved him, he was wearing a new Samoa Joe and was referred as Joe, so that’s the name he is using.

The two men had a stare down, with Owens leaving. Joe salutes the fans, and Owens comes right back, and the show ends with the two confronting each other.

Kevin’s Thoughts:

I generally don’t like no contest finishes in main events of a PPV. It doesn’t bother me on a TV show, but a PPV? I hate them, but in something like this, where we get a debut of a new superstar, a major superstar that the fans knew, going in. I loved it.

It sets the future up, because we know Balor is getting the next title shot, but you can’t forget about Joe Vs Owens, down the line.

Something NXT does very well, that WWE does not do is plan in advance, so not only do you see the current product, but you also see what the future lies too.

Things are looking good for NXT.

But the best match of the night is the women’s match. Sasha Banks is making me a believer of her, as is Becky Lynch.

Overall, this was a good show, with the ending making the show better.
