NXT live event results from Orlando (Mar. 26): ZZ debuts

NXT on Instagram

Where? The Orlando Armory

What happened?

- Asuka & Aliyah defeated Billy Kay & Daria Berenato
- ZZ defeated Chris Gerard
- Bayley issued an open challenge for their last pre-WrestleMania show; Mandy Rose answered and was defeated
- Manny Andrade defeated Tye Dillinger
- American Alpha defeated Blake & Murphy
- Apollo Crews defeated Elias Samson
- The Revival cut a promo mocking Bayley's open challenge... Blake & Murphy answer so the champs can make fun of them, then Chad Gable & Jason Jordan come out and Dash & Dawson make excuses for why they can't face them yet... officials escort both sets of potential challengers to the back so Revival's hand-picked opponents can come out
- Revival defeats Patrick Clark & Kenneth Crawford
- Finn Bálor defeated Riddick Moss
- Afterwards, Samoa Joe attacked from behind, but the NXT champ fought of a Coquina Clutch; said there would be no cheap shots in Dallas

What caught our eye? He's here...

Per Wrestling Observer's NXT correspondent JJ Williams, this and Mandy's impromptu title shot featured a lot of headlocks and basic stuff from the Tough Enough alums. Unlike the Total Divas' star getting Hugplexed, ZZ rolling up the former Biff Busick is going to piss off many in NXT's fanbase.

I'm as excited about our American Alpha-dominated future as the next guy, but let's not sleep on the current tag champs all-around skills...

What's next? Fittingly for after what was kind of structured like a televised 'go home' show, Axxess and then a little show in the Lone Star state on Friday, April 1st.
