Bobby Roode def. Tye Dillinger
TORONTO — Bobby Roode’s night could not have begun in a more glorious fashion when he entered NXT TakeOver: Toronto to the amazing sight of a full choir singing his infectious entrance theme. However, the mood would shift serious very quickly, as he opposed Tye Dillinger in the opening contest in front of a hot Toronto crowd.
The two did not hold back, putting forth an incredibly exciting contest that saw momentum shift several times over. It seemed as though The Perfect 10 had Roode on the brink of defeat in the match’s final stages, until Roode was able to smash Dillinger into the post, then follow that up with a DDT to clinch a glorious victory and ruin Dillinger’s homecoming.
