– We are officially welcomed to the show and the announce team runs down tonight’s loaded card. Let’s go right to the ring!
Street Profits vs. Kris Starr and Riley Apex
Ford starts the match. Leap frogs (one blind) from Ford opens up a shoulder tackle. Quick tag and tandem offense. Dawkins takes the young JBL down with a pop up spine buster. Tag made back to ford and he goes flying with an extremely aerial frog splash from Hell on JBL. One, two, party time.
Winners via Pin Fall: Street Profit
– After the match, they go in the crowd and start a little sermon. They run down the other teams in the division and say 2018 will be the year they conquer after they came and saw in 2017.
Ember Moon (c) vs. Sonya Deville–NXT Women’s Championship Match
Interesting that it seemed they overdubbed the entrances rather than doing the spotlight treatment in the ring. Deville with back control early on with a go behind. She looks for her leg submission but Moon quick to recognize and scoot out of the way. Hip toss is reversed by moon and hits an arm drag on the challenger. Both women well scouted and evades the others’ strikes. Deville hits the ropes, Moon follows and throws Deville off her timing, and hits a single leg drop kick. Deville heads out to recuperate. Moon heads to the apron and hits a cannonball to maintain control as we go to break.
We’re back and Deville quickly goes for a cover for a two. Deville now working over the champ in a variety of ways for an all around attack. Deville with a grounded bear hug squeezing the air out of the champ. Wheel barrel lift by Deville, but Moon dives under to throw Deville into the turnbuckle. Moon selling the ribs and Deville up first. House of fire from Moon with a barrage of strikes and gets a two count. Shot from Deville, but another kick out. Moon hits another level with a springboard drop kick. She quickly follows with The Eclipse. Textbook cover for the win. Not the best of showings, but cements the champion over a newly called up competitor.
Winner and STILL NXT Women’s Champion: Ember Moon
– After the match, Kairi Sane comes out and has her “eye” on the championship. As she states her claim to Moon, Shayna Baszler comes up from behind and puts Sane to sleep on the ramp. Officials break it up and check on Sane to end the segment.
– Paul Ellering cuts a promo for Authors of Pain. He recaps his team’s goals and WarGames. He says Undisputed Era doesn’t write the next chapter. He says UE is on borrowed time because they are the judge, jury, and executioners.
– Christy St. Cloud catches up with Ember Moon after the last segment. She says she isn’t hard to find and knew she would have a target on her back. She says if anyone wants the title, to meet her in the ring next time.
– Very good recap video of how each competitor in the fatal four-way got to the big match tonight.
– Two hour “year in review” episode next week with some special attractions.
