Before his match at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia, The Velveteen Dream accepted the 2017 NXT Year-End Award for Rivalry of the Year.
His TakeOver opponent is Kassius Ohno.
The high-flying provocateur Dream predicted a knockout victory within 30 seconds.
Dream delivers with a right hook that levels Ohno and brings the NXT Universe into a frenzy.
Instead of going for the pin, Dream jumps for joy as he demands the referee count to 10.
As Dream basks in his greatness, Ohno answers the 10-count and levels his opponent with a huge right elbow, knocking out the flamboyant Superstar’s mouth guard.
The boxing-like match quickly turns to a wrestling match, as both competitors trade high-impact maneuvers.
