WWE NXT Results
December 6th, 2017
Report by Doug Enriquez for ProWrestling.com

Tonight’s show comes again from Full Sail University and it is filled with a party for NEW NXT Champion, Andrade “Cien” Almas. Almas will celebrate his victory over Drew McIntyre and also speak to us about his upcoming opponent for Takeover: Philadelphia.

To find out who that opponent will be, NXT will be holding a series of Qualifying Matches to pave the way for a Fatal 4-Way Match that will determine the new number one contender. First on the list: Kassius Ohno takes on The Velveteen Dream, straight off their matches with Lars Sullivan and Aleister Black, respectively.

Also, we will see Killian Rain take on Trent Seven in the second qualifying match to see who will face the NXT Champion.

Lastly, we will see the newest members of the Raw and Smackdown rosters, Sonya Deville and Ruby Riott will go one on one in a No Holds Barred match that is a rematch from which Riott scored a victory the first time.

IN-RING SEGMENT

We start the show with NEW Nxt Champion, Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega who make their way out to the ring, Andrade with a swagger like we’ve never seen from him before. The crowd is booing him a lot and he is basking in it. Zelina Vega gets on the mic and says that everyone is now a witness to a historic championship reign. She tells everyone to respect the man, embrace the legend, and rise for the new NXT Champion, Andrade “Cien” Almas.

Almas (in Spanish) says thank you to Vega. Then screams out “I TOLD YOU!” to the crowd. He says that he is the champion over and over again until he just stops and basks in the boos of the crowd again. I says that he beat and hurt Drew McIntyre, and that we won’t see him for a long time. As for the number one contender, he asks them if they think they can hang with the Idolo.

VIDEO SEGMENT

Backstage, we see an earlier interview of Lars Sullivan being asked about his upcoming match with Roderick Strong to move towards the NXT Championship. Lars responds that Roderick Strong is a handsome man and a family man. But that’s not him. He doesn’t have a family. All he cares about is finishing Roderick Strong so he can claim the NXT Championship in Philadelphia. He says that nothing is going to stop him, not Roderick Strong, not Andrade “Cien” Almas, nothing.

TRENT SEVEN vs. KILLIAN DAIN

Trent Seven starts the match charging at Dain, but Dain knocks down Seven with a big forearm. Dain imposes his size and his will on Seven, and delivers a big body slam, but Seven is able to kick out of the pin at 2. Dain begins to wrench on Dain’s neck but Dain is able to get out and starts to light up Dain with chops. Trent Seven sends Dain off the ropes but Dain is able to hit Seven with a huge cross body. Seven regains control though, and hits Dain with a surprise Seven Stars Lariat. Seven tries to pick up Dain but to no avail and Gain picks up Seven in a fireman’s carry and slams him down to the mat, and immediately follows it up with a senton. Dain climbs to the middle rope and hits a Vader Bomb, pinning Trent Seven for the victory.

Winner: Killian Dain

    Im sorry, but I dont not see lars sullivan nxt champion anytime soon. Personally, I hope Cole gets beat by Black. I do see Cien being a one time defending champion.

    • Doug Enriquez

      He’s being pushed too fast too soon. Like a less interesting, less charismatic Braun Strowman. It’s a shame he beat Kassius Ohno.

      • Lee Walker

        I agree, I just don’t think Lars is ready for that big of a push yet. I think he needs a lot more mic time and to be involved in a few more story lines.

      • Justa Nother Guy

        For some reason they are high on him, not to say he is bad but he is definitely lacking that “It” factor. The nuts thing is they made him one of the downloadable characters for WWE 2k18 this year and I was like who is this. Realistically he give off the same kind of vibe as “The French Angel” Maurice Tillet, which is what I guess WWE is banking on. But I don’t think that kind of more carnival sideshow type vibe will get with today’s WWE casual crowd.

  • Doug Enriquez

    Johnny Wrestling vs. Kassius Ohno? Yes please.

    • Lee Walker

      That was a pretty good match I dont understand why NXT would have two wrestlers who are both face wrestle each other to make it in the fatal four way.

      • Justa Nother Guy

        Face versus face is a old school thing. Modern WWE doesn’t use it as much as they should honestly. But some of the most memorable matches have Face v. Face. Hogan vs Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania 6 from the Toronto Skydome comes to mind immediately.

        • Lee Walker

          I’m cool with face vs face if it’s a wrestlemania, or a survivor series match, or in the royal rumble but not for a qualifying match

          • Justa Nother Guy

            It makes less sense at PPV’s. PPVs are supposed to be about ending feuds. It shouldn’t be that an entire month long or in the case of old school WWF 3 or 4 month rivalry be face vs face. One off TV matches are the way to go, unless it’s something historic like Hogan v Warrior (champ vs champ). Otherwise it makes more sense to just have them on TV. Gone are the days where some faces we’re faces based on simply the thrill of competition and would take on all challengers, even other faces now it always has to be good vs bad. That’s why it’s so good to see things like like that Cena open challenge, it allowed him to take on all challengers not just “bad guys”.

          • Lee Walker

            I’m not saying have one on one face matches. I’m saying if they run into each other in the royal rumble, or at wrestlemania in a 6 man ladder match. Matches where it’s obvious two faces will have to fight each other, and lastly when on opposite sides of a traditional survivor series match.

          • Justa Nother Guy

            I am directly saying that have one on one face matches. Have the motivation be to see who’s better because you don’t need to be a heel to relish in competition.

          • Lee Walker

            I’ll agree with that. Make it about the competition instead of good guy vs bad guy
