EC3 def. Kona Reeves
The Finest gained the edge after snapping the top rope into EC3’s throat, and he wore down his opponent with the suffocating Kona Clutch submission hold. The Top One Percent eventually broke free and dropped the Hawaiian elitist with a somersault neckbreaker, at which point, Velveteen Dream — who abandoned EC3 during a tag team match in London in June — interrupted the proceedings. Dream told EC3 that if he wants to clear the air about their past problems, he’ll have to come to “the Dream’s world” to do so.
As soon as Dream exited, Reeves snuck up on EC3 and hit him with Hawaiian Drop, but EC3 kicked out of the pin attempt, leaving The Finest in total shock. He then began running his mouth, giving EC3 enough time to recover and stun Reeves with the One Percent for the win.
NXT General Manager William Regal announced later in the night that The Top One Percent will have his chance to get his hands on Velveteen Dream when they battle one-on-one at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn 4, streaming live Saturday, Aug. 18, exclusively on WWE Network.
