Winners by Pinfall: Breezango
Mike’s Thoughts: Fun tag team match, which was recorded this past Saturday in front of the red hot Toronto crowd. Fandango looked good in his first televised match back, including hitting an awesome summersault senton, something which I haven’t seen him hit before (that I can remember at least). The crowd was definitely into them. Breezango could be a good veteran-ish presence on the NXT show and will definitely be more valuable to younger talent down there than just existing on the main roster. I can see them doing main roster things because they are good as enhancement, but NXT should be their home for the foreseeable future, especially if NXT is moving to FS1 in the fall.
Video Package: Velveteen Dream retains the NXT North American Championship against Pete Dunne and Roderick Strong.
Pete Dunne was interviewed this past Saturday by Cathy Kelly. Dunne says he should be holding the NXT North American Championship. Velveteen Dream did what he had to do to retain, but he’ll do whatever he has to do to take that title from him.
Jordan Myles is warming up for the NXT Breakout Tournament Finals, which will be the main event of tonight’s show.

Corey Taylor from Slipknot says NXT TakeOver: Toronto was great. Taylor hopes everyone enjoyed the theme song, which was provided by Slipknot.
Video Package: The Street Profits retain the NXT Tag Team Championships against Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish at NXT TakeOver: Toronto.
Cathy Kelly caught up with Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly. They’re looking for William Regal. O’Reilly says he wasn’t the legal man in the match, but he still got pinned as if he was. They want something done because they’re tired of The Undisputed ERA getting screwed.
A slow motion replay is shown of The Undisputed ERA making a sort of tag on a whip into the ropes, but the commentators said that wasn’t enough evidence for NXT General Manager William Regal to overturn it.

Winner by Pinfall: Jordan Myles
Jordan Myles has won the NXT Breakout Tournament and will receive an NXT championship match of his choosing. NXT General Manager William Regal comes out to the stage to give Myles his contract. Regal shakes hands with him before holding the arm up. Myles gets a great reception.
Mike’s Thoughts: Good match to conclude the NXT Breakout Tournament. Jordan Myles, the former ACH, won the tournament and will get a championship match of his choosing. Myles looked good, but the smiling guy gimmick will get old real quick. Reminds me of what they did to Apollo Crews who incessantly smiles and gets nowhere. It doesn’t matter how athletic you are if you don’t have an actual character. Cameron Grimes looked good in this as well, but I don’t know how much upside he has overall in WWE. We will see.
Overall this was a typical post-TakeOver episode of NXT. A couple of good matches, but tons of video packages. Looking forward to next week’s show.
