On Saturday night, December 17, 2016, we attended a WWE NXT Live event at the Mandalay Bay Event Center. It was a good night as we watched the following matches:
- No Way Jose v. Andrade “Cien” Almas
- Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss v. Oney Lorcan & Patrick Clark
- Liv Morgan v. Aliyah
- NXT Tag Team Title Match: The Revival v. DIY’s Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano
- Tye Dillinger v. Elias Samson
- NXT Women’s Title Match: Asuka v. Ember Moon
- NXT Championship Match: Shinsuke Nakamukra v. Bobby Roode (Samoa Joe at ringside)
The NXT Tag-Team Championship match always delivers when The Revival and DIY are involved. This is probably one of the best rivalries in compared to all WWE tag-teams this year.
Asuka defending the NXT Women’s Championship against Ember Moon was probably my favorite match of the night. When WWE decides to move Asuka to the main roster, Ember Moon is the likely superstar to pick up the title…in my opinion. Two athletes giving us an amazing match.
Tye Dillinger had a good match against Elias Samson however, Tye’s post match event was hilarious. I definitely give it a “Perfect 10”.
Shinsuke Nakamura defending the NXT Championship against Bobby Roode was “glorious”. Samoa Joe decided to “enforce” the match at ringside. It was a very good match and I believe Roode is the heir-apparent to rival Nakamura after Samoa Joe is moved to the WWE main roster.
Again it was a good night and a great show.
