Cameron Grimes def. Raul Mendoza
After coming up short in an impressive run to the finals in NXT’s Breakout Tournament, Cameron Grimes has torn through his competition.
In a hard-fought battle with Raul Mendoza, he resumed his winning ways this week. The bout featured contrasting styles between Grimes’ technical savagery and Mendoza’s aerial artistry. With a leaping double stomp attempt from the get-go, Grimes tried to repeat his quick-strike victory from a week ago, but Mendoza scouted it all too well.
Mendoza dazzled the NXT Universe and overwhelmed Grimes with a variety of spectacular offense, and temporarily put Grimes on dream street with several step-up enziguris. He even almost stole a victory following a Frankensteiner.
Grimes managed to shake off the cobwebs before uncorking his patented leaping double stomp out of nowhere to clinch the win.
