NXT live event results from Largo (Sept. 8): A perfect trio

Asuka on Twitter


The Minnreg Hall in Largo, Florida.

What happened?

- Alexander Wolfe & Sawyer Fulton def. Angelo Dawkins & Kenneth Crawford
- Oney Lorcan def. Dallas Harper
- Authors of Pain def. Niko Bogojevic & Tucker Knight
- Hideo Itami def. Buddy Murphy
- Mandy Rose def. Liv Morgan
- Tino Sabatelli def. Kishan Raftar
- Shinsuke Nakamura, Asuka, & Tye Dillinger def. Wesley Blake, Riddick Moss, & Billie Kay

What caught our eye?

Todd, or Phil... whatever... looked lonely:


Remember when we thought they were saving Itami’s GTS for a big moment (no offense, Largo)? Will we see this from Punk Saturday night (hehehe)?

Some good responses to the Mandy/Liv bout, and a bit of a surprise to see Rose get the win. She cut a promo afterwards calling herself “the golden gift” to NXT...

... Daria Berenato came out to trade words with her, and mockingly called her “All Gold Everything”. Mandy said that unlike the Red Goddess, she can actually wrestle - a line that got a good pop.

Interesting that they packed both champs into one match, but with a crowd-pleasing trio like Nak, Asuka & the Perfect Ten, I didn’t see any Floridian’s complaining.

There’s A LOT going on in this video...

My key takeaways were: (1) nobody wants Beautiful Blake’s kisses and (2) this is a nice spot for Tye, but he still doesn’t get to contribute to the signature moves parade.

What's next?

Friday night in Gainesville
