- Samoa Joe def. No Way Jose via submission to retain the NXT championship

What caught our eye?

The least star-studded roster of the weekend for the biggest venue, but still sounds like a fun show.

Ember did not use the O-Face to finish, instead using a handspring elbow she rolled through into a cover.

One former champ rumored for call-up was conspicuously absent all weekend, but the former tag champs were there and the crowd loved Chad Gable & Jason Jordan as always:

Believe this is the first we’ve seen of Crawford since his injury scare. He claimed he’s what a “real man” should be. And THOSE SHOES!

Bringing his style and class to #NXTTampa, the NXT Universe just tuned in to @thecrawfordshow!

Here’s a slice of women’s tag action - and more excellent footware from Mandy:

Big spot for Jose... nice to see the weekend start with Oney Lorcan in a main event and end with this. Feels like they’re prepping the next wave, at least on the live events.

What's next?

Thursday a tour of Indiana & Kentucky kicks off, and next Saturday in Largo (after some Florida-types film more Cruiserweight Classic action at Full Sail).
