The 05/08/19 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 #503 of NXT by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Bianca Belair vs. Mia Yim
After a stalemate to start off the match, Bianca Belair cheap-shotted Mia Yim to get things going, following it up with an alley-oop into the corner, which looked awesome.
Yim, not ready to give up yet, jumped onto Belair and locked in a guillotine choke, complete with body scissors, but Belair countered out of it with a snap suplex. Good stuff all around here.
Belair went for a standing frog splash, but Yim got her knees up. In the ropes, Yim locked up Belair with the tarantula (!), but after Yim released the hold to avoid a DQ, Belair rolled her up (with her hair wrapped around the ropes for leverage) and got the win.
Winner: Bianca Belair
Raul Mendoza vs. Riddick Moss
Riddick Moss is back, with a “Riddick Regimen” fitness-inspired gimmick, which is either going to be a huge hit or a colossal failure.
Raul Mendoza’s crazy athleticism was very much the story of this match. He hit a pretty springboard hurricanrana, following it up with a standing shooting star press for a near fall.
Riddick was probably too focused on getting every single fitness accessory currently on the market involved in the match to really do much offensively, and Mendoza eventually hit a springboard corkscrew splash to get the win.
Winner: Raul Mendoza
Adam Cole vs. Matt Riddle
Spoiler alert: this match RULED.
This one started off on the mat, where Matt Riddle had the obvious advantage. Cole wisely rolled out to the floor after getting out-wrestled by Riddle to regroup.
Riddle rag-dolled Cole with some vicious gutwrench suplexes. Cole fought his way back with a big neckbreaker, and then a Dragon Sleeper, but Riddle escaped rather easily.
After losing on the mat multiple times, Cole decided to start a striking exchange, which ended with Riddle planting him with a release German suplex.
Riddle followed that up with the Broton, and then a German suplex with a bridge, gaining a near fall. Cole came back with a nasty Ushigoroshi, earning a two count of his own.
Riddle, not to be outdone, nearly knocked Cole’s head off with a ripcord knee, and went for a GTS, but it was countered into a backstabber.
Cole tried for a superkick, but Riddle caught his foot and locked in an ankle lock. Cole escaped, and eventually attempted the Panama Sunrise, but Riddle blocked it. We then got another hard-hitting striking exchange, this time ending with Cole hitting the Last Shot.
Somehow it wasn’t enough, and the match continued.
Riddle, the master of combination offense, hit the GTS, a powerbomb, and a ripcord knee on Cole in a matter of seconds, but Cole rolled out of the ring and to the floor to avoid the pinfall.
Roderick Strong showed up at this point, but Riddle quickly took him out with a penalty kick. Riddle got back in the ring but was met with a HUGE superkick from Cole.
Cole quickly went for the pin attempt, but it was countered into the Bromission, which was how this one ended.
The Undisputed Era, who have been really struggling as of late, had another big argument in the ring to close out the show. It was notable that Cole and Kyle O’Reilly left together and Strong and Bobby Fish left together.
Winner: Matt Riddle
