Tye Dillinger def. Eric Young in a Steel Cage Match
The lawless confines brought out a rarely seen aggression in the normally even-keeled Dillinger, but it also fit right in with Young’s reckless abandon, which the unhinged SAnitY member displayed when he launched himself off the top of the cage with an elbow drop. Young savored his upper hand for too long, however, and soon ate a Tye-Breaker from The Perfect 10.
Dillinger’s path to victory, an exit through the door, was seemingly clear until Young’s SAnitY cohorts, Killian Dain, Alexander Wolfe and Nikki Cross, stormed the arena. Cross jumped on the back of a referee outside of the ring, freeing Dain to lock the door and prevent Dillinger’s escape. Their interference prompted Roderick Strong, Kassius Ohno and Ruby Riot to enter the scene and even the odds, sparking a huge brawl among the six Superstars.
Dain eventually broke into the cage, but Dillinger had an answer for his intrusion, soaring off the top of the structure with a crossbody block onto both the big Irishman and Young. Just as Wolfe scrambled over the top of the cage in a last-ditch effort to stop The Perfect 10, Dillinger lunged through the door to snare the win.
As one last parting shot, Dillinger locked SAnitY inside the cage before being hoisted onto the shoulders of Ohno and Strong, looking out over the NXT Universe as it showed its appreciation with chants of “Thank you, Tye.”
