Aleister Black def. Hideo Itami
This highly-anticipated showdown involving two of the hardest kickers in the world of wrestling didn’t disappoint as both Superstars wowed the NXT Universe with a barrage of strikes that reverberated throughout Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.
This clash was not for the faint of heart as Black’s face would attest. Itami had Black grounded and busted open early on as he appeared ready to hand Black his first NXT loss.
This brutal bout would test both Superstars’ resiliency as they unloaded one devastating maneuver after another. Itami had Black on his heels, but his boisterous demands for respect and taunts would ultimately prove costly. As Itami charged, Black ducked out of the way before delivering a jaw-rattling Black Mass for the win.
This epic clash could end up proving to be a pivotal turning point for both Black and Itami who seem headed in opposite directions. For the extremely talented and highly-acclaimed Itami, will the Japanese Superstar be able to rebound from his latest high-profile loss?
Meanwhile, for Black, he picks up another decisive victory to continue his imposing undefeated streak as the number of Superstars left in NXT for Black to defeat is dwindling.
