WWE NXT Live Event Results (1/11/20) - Warren, OH


Thanks to rajah.com reader Edward Rice for sending this in. If you are attending a future WWE house show, please send me the results - rajah @ rajah.com

Here are the results from NXT Live! At Packard Music Hall in Warren, Ohio on Saturday, January 11th.. Attendance was near a sellout at little over 2,000 in attendance (configuration I believe for wrestling is roughly 2,500)

Match 1) Kushida and Alex Shelley defeated Steve Cutler and Jaxson Ryker when Kushida pinned Cutler following double-team combination neckbreaker from Shelley then Kushida hit a moonsault for the 3 count.. easily the 1 match the entire night the crowd was most invested in; in my opinion could easily be a Takeover match

Match 2) Arturo Ruas pinned Denzel Dejournette following a roundhouse kick.. average match, they worked hard, not sure honestly who Denzel is; after the bout Arturo through his broken english was dissing the crowd and NXT locker room stating no one can beat him when Matt Riddle came out, did a slow walk around the ring greeting fans, then jumped over the top rope flipping his sandals off, annihilated Arturo with palm and knee strikes that sent him packing; but to be honest complete waste of Matt Riddles talents here

Match 3) Cameron Grimes pinned Bronson Reed; again pretty standard match here, nothing “must see”

Match 4) Keith Lee pinned Shane Thorn following the jackhammer, following the pin fall as Shane was trying to bring himself up with the aid of the ropes, Keith attacked him and hit him with a pop up powerbomb, Keith Lee didn’t turn heel just hit him with his finishing move; Keith Lee was OOOOOOOOVER in Warren, and surprisingly this was a very good match from the 2

Intermission

Match 5) Danny Burch pinned Raul Mendoza following a hanging top rope DDT (similar to what Randy Orton uses, with the obvious exception that Randy only utilizes the middle rope for this move); again in my honest opinion if not a takeover match, then definitely an NXT TV quality bout, easily the hardest hitting match of the night; following the contest in a “ROH type show of respect” between the 2 wrestlers they shook hands and raised each other’s arm afterwards

Match 6) NXT Women’s Champion Rhea Ripley, Mia Yim, and Kayden Carter defeated Shayna Baszler, Bianca Belair, and Taynara when Ripley pinned Taynara following the Riptide; when Shayna came out the fan response was louder than Matt Riddle, Keith Lee, and Kushida combined (seriously no joke!) then when Rhea came out, her ovation WAS LOUDER than Shayna’s, a lot of fan respect for these 2 ladies.. the match followed the typical tag match formula where Mia played the face in peril, finally got the hot tag to Rhea, then Mia took out Shayna with suicide dive and Kayden took Bianca leaving Rhea to finish up the match with the fall over Taynara

Main Event:
Tommaso Ciampa and Dominic Dijakovic defeated Finn Balor and Damien Priest when Ciampa pinned Priest following an inverted GTS from Dijakovic then Ciampa was able to hit the Fairy Tell Ending; again in my opinion another takeover quality match, full of false finishes and fantastic crowd reaction; I believe though the opening tag match had a hotter crowd than this, but both tag bouts were extremely good; also though as loud of an ovation that Finn and Tommaso got, I believe Shayna and Rhea’s ovation were louder than Finn and Tommaso whom got louder ovations than Keith Lee, Riddle, and Kushida.. also as a final tid-bit the only wrestler that for legitimately booed was Shane Thorn, but he got on the mic and antagonized the crowd before Lee walked out; while Arturo was trying to get booed, but no one could understand what he was saying anyways
