The folks at NXT have fun at every city they go to and the atmosphere around these NXT live events are certainly very different from the Raw and Smackdown tours.
Yesterday in a non-televised NXT event in Louisville, Kentucky the stars of NXT did just that – have fun. The show was main evented by a massive five on five match featuring Finn Balor, Shinsuke Nakamura, American Alpha and Bayley taking on NXT champion Samoa Joe, Bobby Roode, The Revival and Alexa Bliss.
One of the highlights of the match was the ending, where Bayley gave Roode the Bayley to Belly suplex, a suplex which Roode sold like a total pro and was followed by Shinsuke Nakamura’s Kinshasa finisher for the pin.
After the match, all five babyfaces stood in the middle of the ring and gave the Too Sweet hand sign to each other as Nakamura’s theme played in the background with the fans singing along. When time came to do Nakamura’s signature pose with the ropes, the YeaOh!, each member took a side of the ring to do it while Nakamura remained in the middle and used the referee to hold on to for his pose.
“I just had one of the coolest nights of my life,” Bayley wrote on Twitter afterward.
Meanwhile, Balor once again teased that he’s leaving asking the crowd if there was a window open in the arena as he was feeling a draft. Hah!
