WWE NXT Results (6/5): Keith Lee in Action, Mia Yim vs. Bianca Belair, More




NXT is back after another stellar TakeOver event! TakeOver XXV saw The Velveteen Dream and Tyler Breeze put on a clinic, Matt Riddle and Roderick Strong fought their hearts out and Adam Cole won the NXT Championship in an instant classic from Johnny Gargano!


This match began at a slow pace, with both men feeling each other out from the opening bell. The crowd was fully behind Lee, who took the advantage early on. Reeves faked a knee injury however, which gave him the upper hand on Lee. But Lee made his comeback and hit the Limit-Breaker for the pin.


A video rundown of the TakeOver XXV match between Shayna Baszler and Io Shirai was shown next, followed by a backstage interview with Shirai, who had no time to talk. A tag team match featuring Shirai and Candice LeRae versus Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir was announced for next week’s NXT.

A video package featuring the Tag Team Ladder Match between Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch vs. The Undisputed Era vs. The Street Profits from TakeOver XXV was shown next. It was followed by a backstage celebration with The Street Profits, who were enjoying their tag team title win.

Tyler Breeze’s TakeOver XXV match with Velveteen Dream was spotlighted next. Breeze’s interview from that night was shown afterward and Tyler said he’s officially back in NXT.


This main event was the rubber match for Belair and Yim. The two women started off quickly, trading offense back and forth until Belair took control of the match. Belair worked over Yim’s lower back while Mia kept trying to gain some sort of advantage.

Yim finally got that advantage, when she sent Belair face-first into the steel steps. A double count-out nearly happened, but Yim threw Bianca back into the ring, where she stayed on the offensive. Yim hooked Belair in the Tarantula, then hit the Code Blue, but Bianca kicked out at two.

Belair regained control of the match, nailing Yim with a scary midsection suplex, which sent Yim upside down, nearly slamming her head into the mat. Mia was glassy-eyed after that move but she was back on her feet. Belair went for the power-bomb, but Yim countered with a Guillotine choke, which led to another brief breakdown in the match. Yim hit her patented Protect Ya Neck finish from the second rope on Belair, giving her the victory.


Another flashback was shown, this time from last week’s NXT. The video featured Drew Gulak’s loss to Kushida and Gulak spoke about his loss afterward. Drew challenged Kushida to a Submission Match and that match will take place next week on NXT.

Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch vs. Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong was also also announced for next week.

The final video rundown of the night belonged to the TakeOver XXV main event between Johnny Gargano and Adam Cole for the NXT Championship.
