NXT St. Paul live results: Eight-man tag main event, Keith Lee vs. Balor


- Dominik Dijakovic defeated Damian Priest

Dijakovic won with Feast Your Eyes. The crowd was really into Priest's entrance.

- Bianca Belair defeated Kayden Carter

Belair got a nice pop from the crowd.

- Dexter Lumis defeated Rik Bugez

Lumis was cool and mostly dominated the match. He won with a roll-up while hooking the tights.

After the match, Bugez did his air guitar routine with the referee and ring announcer.

- Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez defeated Mia Yim & Tegan Nox

The heels got the win with a roll-up while having their feet on the ropes. Nothing special in this one.

- Finn Balor defeated NXT North American Champion Keith Lee by DQ

The crowd exploded when Balor's music hit. The fans were pretty split during the match, but I thought Balor was more over.

There was a cool spot in this match where Balor countered the Spirit Bomb into a double stomp. The fans turned on Balor when he hit a low blow after a ref bump. He grabbed the North American title belt, but Dijakovic came down, took the belt away, and superkicked Balor. The ref saw Dijakovic with the belt and disqualified Lee.

Lee and Dijakovic had a staredown and the crowd was booing Dijakovic as he walked away.

- Kushida defeated Cameron Grimes

Kushida won by submission. The match was okay but not great.

- NXT Women's Champion Rhea Ripley defeated Chelsea Green to retain her title

Green had a bit of offense, but this felt like a longer squash match. Ripley got a big pop.

- Tommaso Ciampa, Velveteen Dream & NXT Tag Team Champions Matt Riddle & Pete Dunne defeated The Undisputed Era (NXT Champion Adam Cole, Roderick Strong, Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish)

There were some fun spots in this one, including all four members of Undisputed Era taking a superkick at the same time. Everyone got time to shine. Ciampa hit the Fairytale Ending on Fish for the win. As he usually is in Minnesota, Velveteen Dream was very over.

After the match, Ciampa thanked the fans, roster, and Triple H on NXT's 10th birthday. He then led the crowd in a happy birthday song.
