NXT live event results from Cleveland, Citrus Springs (Mar. 4): Tommaso Ciampa, Emma injured?

Where? As NXT continues to grow as a touring brand, they ran split shows on Friday night just like the main roster. One group worked Cleveland's Angora Theater on their way back to Columbus, Ohio and The Arnold Festival; the other stayed in the promotion's regular stomping grounds and hit Citrus Springs, Florida's Community Center.

What happened? The big takeways were, unfortunately, potential injuries in Ohio. We covered Emma's match with Asuka being stopped after a few kicks looked to land a little better than planned. Tommaso Ciampa was also helped to the back after he & hometown boy Johnny Gargano's tag loss to The Revival. The Sicilian Psychopath looked to suffer a shoulder injury after taking Dash & Dawson's Shatter Machine finisher.

What caught our eye? The show in the Sunshine state provided some scouting reports. Clark, Swann & Andrade are looking ready. Daria and the Ealy twins are showing promise. Sara still has a long way to go. A couple of internet whipping boys, Sampson & Riley, both drew good heel heat and positive remarks from those in attendance.

Up north, aside from the possible injuries, Aiden English & Simon Gotch's repackaging seems to be going well - although perhaps anyone can get booed opposite fan favorites Chad Gable & Jason Jordan. Bliss got good reviews for her performance in the Women's title match.

What's next? The crew with the champs heads back to Ohio's state capital to work as the WWE Experience attraction at The Arnold. In Florida, it's on to Bartow.
