WWE NXT video highlights: Interim Cruiserweight title tournament finals


The final episode of NXT before TakeOver: In Your House was headlined by the finals of WWE's interim Cruiserweight Championship tournament.

El Hijo del Fantasma won the match and became interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion, but Drake Maverick has still been re-hired by WWE. The show ended with Triple H coming out to the stage and offering Maverick an NXT contract.

The mask kidnappers who have been appearing on NXT surrounded Fantasma near the end of the match but were taken out by a tope from Maverick and then fought off by him. Fantasma then capitalized on the distraction, hitting a superkick and the Phantom Driver to get the win when Maverick got back in the ring.

The final build to Sunday's TakeOver special included Prime Target special features building up Adam Cole vs. Velveteen Dream for the NXT Championship and Charlotte Flair vs. Rhea Ripley vs. Io Shirai for the NXT Women's Championship. A new match was also added to the TakeOver card, with Mia Yim, Tegan Nox & Shotzi Blackheart vs. Candice LeRae, Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez being announced after a brawl between them.

That brawl happened after Yim vs. LeRae ended in a double countout on last night's show. A mixed tag match between Yim & Keith Lee and LeRae & Johnny Gargano was then made. LeRae got the win by rolling up Yim, who was distracted after Gargano used his car keys to stab Lee in the eye. Lee is defending his NXT North American Championship against Gargano on Sunday.
