WWE NXT TakeOver Rival results, live streaming match coverage tonight (Feb. 11, 2015)

WWE NXT TakeOver: Rival is all set to pop off tonight (Wed., February 11, 2015) from Full Sail Live, at 8 p.m. ET, live on WWE Network! will provide LIVE blow-by-blow, match-by-match coverage of NXT TakeOver: Rival below, beginning with the first match of the evening and right on through to the main event.

Tonight's show will feature Sami Zayn defending his NXT championship against old friend and enemy Kevin Owens.  Can KO make Sami's reign a short win, and claim the belt two months after he debuted?

Elsewhere, the tournament to determine the first challenger to for the winner of Zayn vs. Owens wraps up with a dream match when Adrian Neville and Finn Bálor square off.  Charlotte has taken on all comers for her Women's title, and she'll have to take them all on at the same time tonight, when she faces Bayley and the bickering members of Team B.A.E., Sasha Banks & Becky Lynch, in a Fatal 4Way.

The tag titles unexpectedly changed hands a few weeks back when Murphy & Blake shocked Lucha Dragons with a roll-up on Kalisto.  Tonight, the two luchadors try to reclaim the championship.  And Baron Corbin looks to put away Bull Dempsey once and for all in a match with no disqualifications.

We're also looking for Solomon Crowe's debut, Finn's theatrics and maybe a bout between the funniest foes on Twitter - Hideo Itami and Tyler Breeze.

Check out our match-by-match preview while you're waiting for the show to start!

And kick your off your shoes, relax, and enjoy all the action with your favorite pro wrestling website. And remember to keep refreshing!

Hey now, it's Sean.

Intro package is like Braveheart meets NFL Films, and it is good.  You know, for all the folks on the fence about whether or not they'd be into the show.

ITAMI TIME!  They run the YouTube post-match footage of Prince Pretty's attack.

Breeze has a faux fur Selfie stick.  And he's attacked by a blonde female fan - security has to intervene.  Being gorgeous is such a burden.

Hideo Itami vs. Tyler Breeze

Fast-paced open with Itami trying to land early kicks.  Breeze uses the referee as a screen and lands the first blow.  Tyler thinks he has his opponent stunned in the corner, but Hideo surprises him with a corner clothesline.

The chase continues, with Prince Pretty staying one move away from having his clock well and truly cleaned.  He plays possum on the floor to grab a leg and slam the knee over the apron.  Breeze sets to work on Itami's wounded limb - including wrapping it around the ring post, and a post-assisted Figure Four!

Back in the ring, the Mayor of Cutesville busts out a Triangle half-Crab submission, and the Japanese star guts it out to the bottom rope.  Breeze is stunned, and puts a fabulous boot to Itami.  While Tyler circles, Hideo pops up and we get our GTS TEASE!

They circle and Breeze lands a Supemodel Kick.  1 - 2 - NO!  Dueling chants from Full Sail Live, as Tyler takes a little bit too much time getting back to the assault.  The Gorgeous One connects with some closed fist strikes, but Hideo hulks up and lands some big kicks, and then more kicks.

Prince Pretty slumps in the corner, and takes the low drop kick!  Breeze stumble to his feet, but Itami's leg holds up for the sick kick and the win.

GM Regal is shown giving Kevin Owens a little talking to.

Here comes Bull.

Baron Corbin vs. Bull Dempsey in a No Disqualification match

Corbin keeps his new t-shirt on and charges right into assault the singlet-wearing throwback.  His aggression gets the better of him when Bull suplexes him on the ramp, and then whips him right into the ring post.

The crowd wants tables, and Dempsey goes under the ring to get something - but Baron stops him.  That just leads to more chops and strikes from Bull.  Back in the ring, Bull runs into a nice Spinebuster from Corbin, who definitely knows how to bust out a good looking power move.  Corbin goes for a big clothesline meant to dump both men, but something goes awry and the crowd lets hem know about.

Bull with a splash on the floor, and rolls Corbin back in to the ring.  He heads up top and hits the Flying Headbutt...but the Lone Wolf kicks out!  Dempsey is shocked, but doesn't wait long before he throws his opponent into the ring steps and grabs a chair!  He charges in, but Baron catches him with an End of Days for the win!

The victor grabs the chair, but just sits and kicks his oft-beaten opponent away.

Becky (in traditional, non-grunge/punk ring gear) and Bayley are shown warming up backstage.

Lucha Dragons vs. Wesley Blake & Buddy Murphy (c) for the NXT Tag Team Championship

Rich Brennan drops a Jon Stewart reference before Jason Albert quotes Sun Tzu.  I'm just saying.

And - my feed drops multiple times in rapid succession.

Don't know what I've missed, but Sin Cara is in with Blake when things settle down.  The match of botching takes it's toll on a hurricanrana, and Corey Graves cover by calling it a "great counter" by Wesley.  He ends dumping  Blake, and when Murphy attempts to break up a pin, Kalisto charges but slips when looking to springboard onto the floor.

Big powerbomb into a pin for Cara, and when he can't get three, and both men tag.  Fast-paced action from the Kalisto.  After another tag, the champs break out a tandem pop-up into a cutter move, but that's not enough to finish Sin Cara.  The Aussie tries to work over the Dragon, who slips away to get another hot tag to his partner.

Crowd has no idea what to make of this, which is unusual for Full Sail.  Big spike DDT from Kalisto, but he doesn't cover - leading to a weird series of reversals.  After a couple of nearfalls, they each tag and Sin Cara and Blake trade roll-ups.

Murphy gets in, but takes a clean one-armed powerbomb.  Announce is painting the picture that the Dragons are too concerned with flash and not finishing.  It finally gets the best of them when Murph hits a running suplex on Sin Cara, setting up a Frog Splash from Blake.

Afterward, our feed is hacked to tell us that Solomon Crowe isn't debuting tonight, basically.  Tune in next week (or read tomorrow's taping spoilers) (or is it just misdirection?).

A video package recaps the #1 contender's tournament, and gives us some history on the two finalists.  The Brit is out first, because...Finn brought the paint.

It's fairly identical, including the weird Jar-Jar Binks Rasta-ish wig.  Love Neville's "you done yet?" look.

Finn Bálor vs. Adrian Neville in the finals of the tournament to determine the #1 contender for the NXT Championship

Bálor charges in, and Neville sidesteps for a headlock tag down.  Some chain wrestling leads to a dropkick counter out of powerbomb, and Adrian starts rolling out to gain composure.  He comes back in before we get a suicide dive, but he does run into a standing dropkick before getting back on top of the action.

The former NXT champ keeps things grounded and slow-paced.  Finn creates some separation, but this time it's his turn to take a drop kick when he looks to hop back in from the apron.  Big delayed suplex from the Geordie, which leads to more ground work from Neville.

Finn finally gets going when he knocks Neville to the floor with an enziguri, and then finally executes and hits the dive.  Neville gets in first, but rolls back out.  The Demon stalks his opponent, hitting a two legged drop stomp into the barricade!

Rolling Adrian in, he goes up top and hits the Coup de Grace on the back of Neville's head.  1 - 2 - WHAT?

He sets up for a Bloody Sunday (I think), but Neville slips out.  Pele Kick from Finn stops his momentum, but Adrian answers with a Superkick.  Both men are down!  Two German Suplexes, including a second with a bridge won't stop Bálor - and neither will a second rope corkscrew splash!

A frustrated Neville gets caught in a sling blade, and then gets turned inside out with lariat.  Reverse Bloody Sunday!  1 -2 - NOPE.  The Irishman heads to the top, but Adrian grabs a leg.  Big enziguri stuns Finn, and Neville sets him up for his finisher.  He rolls away, but takes a stiff kick to leave him in position again.

Finn gets the knees up on Red Arrow!  Nearfall from that, but Bálor immediately hits the exploding corner drop kick.  That leads to the Coup de Grace (is it only called that when hit to the midsection?) and the win.

Post-match handshake, and Full Sail treats this as a goodbye for AN.

Our survey of the Women's match participants takes us to see Sasha Banks and Charlotte getting their minds right before a video package hypes the Fatal 4Way.

Entrance order: Bayley, Sasha Banks, Becky Lynch and then the champ last (what a concept).

Charlotte (c) vs. Sasha Banks vs. Bayley vs. Becky Lynch in a Fatal 4Way for the NXT Women's Championship

Melee to start, and then Team B.A.E. teams up on the champ.  She dumps them, and Bayley goes for a quick roll-up.  Those two square off for a while, and when the champ goes to the floor, Becks and the Boss drive her backfirst into the side of the ring.  Charlotte sells that, and they head in immediately to take out Bayley.

After working the knee for a bit, they both try to pin the Hugster and get into it.  Lynch acts like she's going to let Sasha cover, but hits her with a big suplex.  The Boss bounces outside, and she hits several leg drops on Bayley.

Dragon screw leads to a knee submission, but Sasha breaks that up.  The two partners wail on each other, and Lynch dodges the double knee drop before cconnecting with a big drop kick from the top.  The champ is back and she cleans house on Team B.A.E., almost ending it with a neckbreaker on Banks.

The Boss breaks up a cover after a neckbreaker to Becky, and works over Charlotte - including a mocking WOO.  She dodges a charge from the champ, who spears Lynch.  Bayley returns, but she and Beck are dispatched by the Nature Girl.  She goes after Sasha, but she dodges.   Lynch tries to break up the double knees, but Banks uses her to hit the champ in the midsection, and then knee her way through both of them!

The Hugster is back, and takes out the heels before charging into Charlotte with 4 back elbows!  She tightens the pony and goes for the top rope hurricanrana - and hits!  Bayley-to-Belly, but Lynch pulls her out before the three count.

She chases down Lynch and starts dishing out punishment on the floor.  Banks flies and takes out both women on the floor!  Charlotte gets to her feet, and slingshots herself onto all three competitors!  THE CARNAGE

Rolls in Becky, but on her way back in Lynch hits a high knee.  Suplex from the Irishwoman, but it's not enough.  Europeans to Charlotte, and she sets her up on the top rope.  Before she can do anything, Banks breaks it up.  Bayley pulls her down, and hits a top rope Hugplex!  1 -2 and her comes The Boss!  She can't cover, but she gets a crossface on the champ.

It's broken once to clear Lynch off the apron, and immediately locked back in!  Charlotte won't tap, but gets rolled up with a crucifix...THE CHAMP IS NOT RATCHET!

The Dirtiest Diva in the Game offers a hand to the third champ in NXT history, but we get a brief hug...before The Boss goes back into character and shoves her away.

We get the greatest promo video again, and then some big fight feel backstage footage before their entrances.  Champ second, because NXT knows.

Sami Zayn (c) vs. Kevin Owens for the NXT Championship

Staredown from the corners at the bell, with an evil laugh from Owens.  He bails out tand refuses to engage to keep the heat focused where it belongs.  Finally, Sami can't wait anymore and dives OVER THE REF to splash onto KO on the floor.

Back in the ring, Zayn is angry and lays into Kev with punches and kicks.  Finally, Owens has had enough and bursts out before destroying the champ with two big clotheslines in the corner.  It's throw Sami around like a rag doll time early, as a furious challenger sends his friend into bigger and bigger bumps before putting a knee into his shoulder blades and locking in the chin lock.

Everytime Zayn tries to gut it out and get some separation, he's put right back down, including with a big mid-section first drop onto the top rope and a huge back suplex onto the mat.  Sami rolls to fhe floor, but KO chases to hit some loud chops.  We get some hints of Wrestling's Worst Nightmare here, as he taunts the champ and is definitely enjoying hurting him.

He rolls in to break the count, but goes right back to inflicting punishment.  He eventually puts Sami in the ring for a cover, but the champ kicks out.  BIG gutbuster followed by a senton for two.  Graves compares this to what Brock Lesnar did to John Cena at SummerSlam.

A groggy Zayn hits some clotheslines, eventually dumping him to the floor.  He follows, and sends Owens into the ring post and steel steps.  He mirrors the roll-in to break a count, and when Kev thinks he gets a second by showing Sami back into the ring, he comes right back around with a clothesline.

Back in, Blue Thunder Bomb on Owens.  1 - 2 - no.  That looked great, though.  Zayn comes charging, and Kev hits a big kick square on the chin!  Cannonball!  That almost does it, but the champ won't quit.  Neckbuster!

Zayn reverses out of a pop-up Powerbomb, and hits a Half-in-Half!  Owens rolls away, and Sami follows to sling him headfirst into the turnbuckle.  Kevin snap his neck off the ropes, and rolls him in before going up top.  They battle at the top, but he puts Zayn down again.  He heads back up and spits on the champ before going for a big senton...but Sami gets the knees up!  Exploder suplex!

KO ducks the Helluva, and when Zayn chased, he goes for the Powerbomb on the side of the ring, but Sami grabs the ropes.  Senton on the ramp, and both men crack their heads on the steel ramp.  Zayn rolls in Owens, and neither man can get to his feet.  The champ is up first, and heads in for a Helluva but his knees wobble.

Owens charges and hits a Pop-Up Powerbomb!  1 - 2 - NOOOO.  Referee is checking on the champ as the announcers talk concussion.  KO charges in and lays in with fists to the head.  Big uppercut and shots to the back of the head, and the ref keeps pulling the challenger off.  Those two jaw while the trainer checks on Sami.  Owens charges in for a Pop-Up Powerbomb.  And another!  But Sami rolls a shoulder up!

The trainers are checking on the champ again when KO hits two more Powerbombs.  He goes for a third when the referee grabs him and calls for the bell.  The crowd is booing, but then he gets the belt and gives it to Owens.

TKO I guess?

Great match, interesting decision on the finish.  Owens cries while the trainers check on a non-responsive Sami.
