Andrade "Cien" Almas def. Fabian Aichner
ORLANDO, Fla. — Fabian Aichner was aware of the magnitude of the opportunity to face NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas, even if only in non-title competition, and went full bore at El Idolo. The Italian-born Superstar hit Almas with a breathtaking, no-hands springboard plancha to the floor, followed up with a springboard tornado DDT and brutalized the champion with a powerbomb for a two-count.
Aichner couldn’t sustain his red-hot start, however, as Almas’ business manager, Zelina Vega, provided a costly distraction. That gave Almas his chance to pounce, and after running Aichner into the steel ring steps, Almas drilled him with the devastating Hammerlock DDT for the win.
Vega commandeered the announce desk following her client’s victory and boldly stated that no matter who wins the right to face Almas at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia, El Idolo will not be stopped.
