Jaxson Ryker def. Humberto Carrillo
In a battle of NXT newcomers, Jaxson Ryker (the heavy hitter of The Forgotten Sons) and Humberto Carrillo (a proud member of the lucha libre’s famed Garza dynasty) each looked to start his NXT career off on the right foot. Ryker succeeded.
The incredibly intense Ryker pulverized Carrillo from start to finish. He overwhelmed Carrillo with brute strength and used ruthless tactics, like scurfing Carrillo’s face on the canvas, to keep the upper hand. Carillo tried to turn the tide by launching himself off the top rope, but Ryker swatted him out of the air like a fly. Ryker then put Carrillo out of his misery with a slingshot powerbomb to score the decisive victory.
