I caught the NXT show in Tampa, which featured the first-ever Itami vs. Roode match last night. It was great. Itami scored a number of two counts and had Roode rocking with kicks and strikes but was caught with a low blow and the implant DDT to score the pin. Really enjoyable.
*Heavy Machinery defeated Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake.
*No Way Jose defeated Tino Sabbatelli. Sabbatelli has gotten really good since the last time I saw him.
*Kona Reeves pinned Dan Matha.
*Liv Morgan and Lacey Evans defeated Mandy Rose and Bianca Blair. Rose is gorgeous.
Kassius Ohno & Roderick Strong & Buddy Murphy defeated Sanity. Fun six man. It's about time Murphy had something of worth to do.
*Rich Swann defeated Noam Dar in a 205 Live match.
*Lana pinned Ruby Riot. Lana was doing a dancing gimmick, making me wonder if they are preparing her for a new persona on Smackdown. Mary Kate worked as her manager.
