The July 24 2019 edition of WWE NXT, out of the Full Sail Arena in Winter Park, Florida, just wrapped up. We’ve got the match results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #517 of NXT by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Angel Garza vs. Jordan Myles
NXT Breakout Tournament Semi-Final Match
After a brief stalemate to get us going, Jordan Myles‘ showboating finally cost him big time. He was too busy playing up to the crowd early on in the match, which gave Garza an opening to trip him up on the apron and allowed him to take over from there.
On the floor, Myles was tossed hard into the stairs, and then the barricade, by Garza. Garza slid into the ring and tried to win the match via countout, but Myles beat the 10-count.
Garza was really aggressive here, and it worked for him. It also forced Myles to retaliate with aggression as well, which is something he hadn’t shown yet on WWE TV.
Myles got the win via a German Suplex with a bridge pinning combo. He’s moving on to the finale to face the winner of Cameron Grimes vs. Bronson Reed, which happens next week.
Winner: Jordan Myles
The first two stipulations for the 3 Stages of Hell Match (we’re calling it that) between NXT Champion Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano, which will take place at TakeOver: Toronto, were announced. Gargano picked a Street Fight while Cole picked a normal one-on-one match.
This makes a ton of sense because Cole’s been screaming about how he would have beaten Gargano in the first 2-out-of-3 falls match if it was a normal match (he won the first fall). Also, Gargano’s good at Street Fights, so that works, too.
Mr. Regal has yet to announce what his stipulation for the third fall will be, assuming it’ll even be needed (it will be). Perhaps we’ll find out next week.
Bianca Belair vs. Xia Li
This was a dominating squash match in favor of Belair. Li literally didn’t get any offense in, which kind of took us by surprise.
Winner: Bianca Belair
Kacy Catanzaro vs. Io Shirai
Io Shirai, much like Bianca Belair did earlier, was about to run away with this one when Candice LeRae showed up with a chair and ran her off. Fingers crossed that this leads to some kind of No DQ match at TakeOver: Toronto between LeRae and Shirai because their feud is legit one of the best things going in NXT at the moment.
Winner: No Contest
Keith Lee vs. Damian Priest
After a slow feeling out process to start us off, Lee and Priest got into a fun kicking exchange, which gave both guys (especially Lee) a chance to show off their impressive athleticism.
After a few more hard-hitting exchanges, Priest somehow landed the Falcon Arrow on Lee, but it wasn’t enough to put Lee away for good. Lee then hit the Pounce, but Priest got back up rather quickly and dumped Lee to the floor.
Priest then went for a diving senton to the floor, but Lee caught him (!) and tried to powerbomb him on the ramp. Damian Priest blocked the powerbomb attempt and booted Lee hard into the steel stairs.
Back in the ring, Priest quickly hit The Reckoning to get the win.
This was a fun match and a great way to close out a solid episode of NXT.
