Carmella on Twitter

Where? The University Area Community Development Center Gym in Tampa, Florida and the Palm Beach County Convention Center in West Palm Beach, Florida

What happened?

West Palm

- Bayley & Carmella defeated Emma & Billie Kay
- Tucker Knight Manny Andrade defeated Rich Swann
- Tye Dillinger defeated Riddick Moss
- American Alpha defeated the Revival (non-title)
- Nia Jax defeated Aliyah
- Sami Zayn defeated Samoa Joe
- Finn Bálor defeated Baron Corbin to retain the NXT championship


- Asuka & Liv Morgan defeated Mandy Rose & Daria "the Jersey Devil" Berenato
- Dylan Miley defeated Bronson Matthews
- Levis Valenzuela defeated Elias Sampson
- Mojo Rawley defeated Christopher Girard
- Patrick Clark & Kenneth Crawford defeated Blake & Murphy
- Austin Aries promo on Baron Corbin is interrupted by Steve Cutler; Aries defeats Cutler in a squash
- Apollo Crews defeated Angelo Dawkins
- Enzo Amore & Colin Cassaday promo and open challenge, answered by Aiden English & Simon Gotch; Realest Guys defeat Vaudevillains

What caught our eye? Some interesting losses on both cards, including Swann and Sampson, two guys I'm presuming factor into television plans soon (CORRECTION - Rich worked with Manny "La Sombra" Andrade, a guy who they DEFINITELY have big plans for, so that outcome makes a lot of sense).

Blake & Murphy seem to not only have lost the most over part of their act (no Alexa Bliss) but are also enhancement talent now. Joe's win/loss record in the Sunshine state is no bueno.

BIG ACTION debuted!

The champ's salsa moves are better than Andrea Ocampo's "Too Sweet"ing skills.

Shoutout to Cagesider Ryan Bergman for a report from West Palm, where he had the biggest pop/heat for: American Alpha, Tye Dillinger, Samoa Joe and Finn Bálor.

What's next? Saturday night in Wauchula and Cocoa.
