The 06/05/19 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 #509 of NXT by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Keith Lee vs. Kona Reeves
Keith Lee was just toying with Kona Reeves early on in this match, much to the delight of the crowd. He had the advantage in every single department (except for maybe hair) and he knew it, so he played around with Reeves for a bit before things got serious.
Reeves eventually faked a knee injury, which opened up a window for him to come after Lee and rock his world for a bit. Lee did fight back rather quickly, but Reeves managed to plant him in the center of the ring with a beautiful Uranage, which earned him a near fall.
Lee, done with Reeves and his games, landed a few stiff forearms to the Reeves’ face, and then a big headbutt, before sending him crashing hard to the mat via The Pounce.
One Jackhammer later, Lee had the pinfall victory.
Winner: Keith Lee
NXT TakeOver: XXV Recap
Like any post-TakeOver episode of NXT, this week’s show was filled with highlights from TakeOver: XXV. If you missed Saturday’s show, stop whatever you doing and go watch it RIGHT NOW. Seriously, it’s as good as wrestling gets, at least in our humble opinion.
Bianca Belair vs. Mia Yim
The rubber match between Bianca Belair and Mia Yim closed out the show, and as expected, it very much ruled.
The two went back-and-forth early on, with neither gaining an advantage, due to the fact that they’re both so familiar with one another at this point.
Belair eventually knocked Yim down via a big lariat and proceeded to just club Yim with her fists for a bit. We touched on this last week, but she’s added another layer of nastiness to her offensive approach that is just so awesome.
Speaking of nasty, Belair had Yim all tied up with a bow and arrow submission hold at one point. Yim managed to get out of it and fall right into a pinfall attempt, which Belair kicked out of, and then immediately kneed Yim in the stomach afterward. Good stuff.
Yim locked in a submission hold of her own, a Dragon Sleeper, but Belair just powered out of it because she’s a beast. Yim followed that up with the Code Blue, but it wasn’t enough to get the win.
Belair then went for her powerbomb, and even put her hair up this time, but Yim countered it into another Dragon Sleeper. The two then made it over to the top rope area, where Yim eventually hit Seoul Food off the top to get the win.
Winner: Mia Yim
