The September 25 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 #526 of WWE NXT by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
The Undisputed Era is Here
The show kicked off with a neat shot of the Undisputed Era, holding all of the gold, looking down at the NXT Universe from atop the announcer’s perch. The Undisputed Era is officially here, to say the least.
Dominik Dijakovic vs. Keith Lee
This was a really fun hoss fight that somehow managed to top the previous encounters these two have had with one another. If you’ve seen Lee and Dijak go at it before, you know that they do some pretty crazy stuff to be big men.
This one was no exception to the rule, with the entire match feeling like one big high spot, which of course was a blast to watch.
At one point, Dijak hit Lee with a Canadian Destroyer off the top rope (!!!), which made Full Sail (and Twitter) go absolutely crazy. After a moonsault exchange, Lee hit a Jackhammer to get the win.
Again, check this one out if you missed it… it was easily my pick for “match of the night.”
Winner: Keith Lee
Dakota Kai vs. Taynara
Dakota Kai made her in-ring return to NXT after being sidelined with an injury. She actually got pretty emotional during her entrance, which was really cool to see. I’m glad she’s back, to say the least.
As far as the match is concerned, there was never any real doubt as to who was going to win. After a few kick exchanges from both women, Kai got the W.
I expect to see her (Kai) in a big spot in the very near future.
Winner: Dakota Kai
Killian Dain vs. Matt Riddle
NXT Championship No. 1 Contendership Street Fight
This one was a bit crazy, with tons of crowd brawling and fighting all over the arena, which was to be expected. At one point, Killian Dain sent Matt Riddle through a wall via a running crossbody, which was pretty awesome.
After some more brawling on the floor, these two eventually made their way back into the ring, where Dain continued to shine. He hit three Vader Bombs on Riddle, which of course is what he did to defeat Riddle a few weeks ago, but it wasn’t enough tonight.
Dain then went for another Vader Bomb, but Riddle countered with a powerbomb, and then a knee strike to the face (with a chair), which rocked Dain pretty good. A few moments ladder, Riddle had the submission victory.
Adam Cole then came out and got in Riddle’s face. Riddle put him in an armbar, and then ran away before the rest of the UE could make the save. Cole meets Riddle for the title next week, so be sure to check it out.
Winner: Matt Riddle
Kayden Carter vs. Rhea Ripley
Kayden Carter showed a few flashes here, but ultimately, Rhea Ripley was just too much for her to overcome. Don’t be surprised if Ripley and Dakota Kai go at it in the near future with title implications on the line.
Winner: Rhea Ripley

Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan vs. Ever-Rise
This was a fun little tag team match, which isn’t surprising considering the talent in the ring. But Ever-Rise just doesn’t have the crowd’s interest quite yet, which kept it from being something more. They need some promos (and new gear) before the fans can really get invested in one of their matches, but I’m sure that’s coming soon.
Much like last night on 205 Live, Team 1-2 got the win via the elevated DDT combo.
Winner: Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan
Cameron Grimes vs. Raul Mendoza
My second favorite match of the night. Raul Mendoza, in particular, really stole the show here (as per usual). In fact, the crowd was legitimately disappointed when he didn’t win.
Cameron Grimes is great, too, but don’t be shocked if Mendoza gets a bit of a push soon. Grimes got the win via that jumping diving double stomp… thing. But again, Mendoza looked really good and has the crowd behind him fully now, which is a good sign for him and his future.
Winner: Cameron Grimes
Imperium (Fabian Aichner, Marcel Barthel, and Alexander Wolfe) vs. Kushida & ???
6-Man Tag Team Match
Kushida’s mystery partners ended up being Breezango, which the live crowd absolutely loved. All six guys looked great in the match, but Breezango really stood out and continue to prove that they’re more than just a comedy act.
Kushida got the win for his team via an O’Connor Roll with a bridge. Post-match, WALTER nearly kicked his head off his shoulders, which means we’re one step closer to Kushida/WALTER on NXT TV. Get pumped!
Winner: Breezango & Kushida
