NXT Takeover Review: Top 5 Moments From ‘The End’

The Latest NXT Takeover Is The End Of The Beginning

The NXT Takeover PPV has been happening since 2014. After ‘The End’, it looks like they have finally taken over. A night filled with epic debuts and shocking wins, the future of NXT is looking even brighter than before.

Below are the top 5 moments from NXT Takeover: The End!

5. Former “La Sombra” Andrade “Cien” Almas Wins His Debut

-Mexican superstar Andrade Almas has made a name for himself in Japan & Mexico. He can now add the USA on the list as he had a strong showing at Takeover. His match against Ty Dillinger was the perfect way to showcase his skills.


Scott Dawson & Dash Wilder have reclaimed their championship gold. Probably the most cerebral tag-team on the NXT roster, their rivalry with American Alpha has been great. It looks like ‘The End’ was also the end of the feud as a new team attacked Alpha after the match.

3. Shinsuke Nakamura Exists

-Nakamura is possibly the best Japanese import since Hello Kitty.  I’ve personally been a fan of his work since his early days in NJPW so to see him at NXT is a blessing. At ‘The End’, he faced independent superstar Austin Aries in one brutal match. His win helps put him further up the rankings to an NXT Title match.

2. An Unstoppable Force Meets An Immovable Object

-Without a doubt, Asuka has to be one of the best wrestler on the entire WWE roster. She’s so quick and so brutal but also makes her opponents look so good. That’s what she did at ‘The End’; Asuka made Nia Jax look like the monster she needs to be. Glad to see Asuka retain her Women’s Championship as well.

1. NXT Has Their First Steel Cage Match

-We’ve seen ladder matches but NXT has never had a steel cage match till ‘The End’. The two competitors in the match were NXT Championship Samoa Joe and Finn Balor; two of the greatest wrestlers in the entire world. The action was back and forth but Joe walked away with the title. What’s next for the champion?
