NXT TakeOver XXV Results
June 1, 2019
— Mauro Ranallo welcomes us to the Webster Bank Arena for tonight’s show, joined by Nigel McGuinness and WWE Hall of Famer Beth Phoenix. The Undisputed Era’s music sounds as Roderick Strong makes his way out to the ring for tonight’s first match!
MATT RIDDLE vs. RODERICK STRONG
They go back and forth trying to wrestle each other down to the mat, but Strong’s usually superior ground game is easily stopped by the former UFC fighter. They end up fight to the outside and throw each other into barricades and ring steps, before Strong gets the first huge move of the match, with a nasty-looking backbreaker on the edge of the ring apron! Riddle tries to fire back with wild rights and lefts, but he gets caught yet again with a big backbreaker, and Strong immediately gets a rear mount and reigns down with blows to the back of the head.
Riddle eventually manages to fight his way back into the bout and delivers a Fisherman’s Suplex that looked a bit more like a Brainbuster, before connecting with a series of palm strikes and a big crescent kick. He hit an exploder suplex, sending Strong flying across the ring, followed by a running senton and the running PK, but only gots a two-count.
After a great back-and-forth, Riddle connects with the Bro-to-Sleep, transitioning into a German suplex bridge for another nearfall. Strong caught him with an enzuigiri climbing the ropes and sent him crashing with a thunderous superplex, but it wasn’t enough. Once again they go back-and-forth with rights and lefts. Strong goes for a lariat, Riddle rolls through into a powerbomb, Strong flips out of it and hits the V-Trigger! He runs the ropes delivering forearm shot after forearm shot until Riddle was on spaghetti legs, then nailed the Strong Breaker! 1…2… RIDDLE KICK S OUT!
Strong lost his cool and rolled out of the ring, but Riddle caught him coming back in with a knee to the jaw. Riddle followed up immediately with a serires of nasty strikes, a roundhouse kick, then hit a RIpcord V-Trigger, but it still wasn’t enough. Strong fired back with forearms as the crowd was going crazy, then destroyed him with even more kicks, before hitting a superkick, a suplex, the double knees lungblower and locks in the Strong Hold!
Riddle starts to fade, but somehow manages to get his feet free and kick his opponent in the head over and over again to release the hold. Bromission locked in with Riddle reigning down nasty looking blows to the side of the head, then releases the hold to deliver a Gotch-style Piledriver, shades of MInoru Suzuki! 1…2…3!
