NXT has put a bow around its TakeOver: Phoenix live event from Talking Stick Resort Arena as the promotion wrapped up the show tonight (Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019) with Tommaso Ciampa celebrating a hard fought, not exactly honorable NXT championship defense over Aleister Black.
Was it the best match on the card?
Ciampa celebrated alongside the new North American champ Johnny Gargano, who got dirty to beat Ricochet for that belt in a barnburner midway through the show. That followed a hoss fight-meets-athletic spectacle opener where War Raiders dethroned Undisputed ERA for the tag titles, and Matt Riddle earning a submission win over Kassius Ohno in a slobberknocker. In between Dark #DIY’s wins, Bianca Belair fought through adversity but took her first loss and failed to take the Women’s title from Shayna Baszler.
