NXT Chicago, IL, afternoon results: Finn Balor vs. Sami Zayn

Submitted by Charles Vail

- 1:00 pm card at the Portage Theatre

- Enzo and Big Cass over NXT Tag Team Champion Dash and Dawson via DQ. Ref was pulled out of the ring after Air Enzo on a pin attempt. Solid match, great starter.

- Tomasso Ciampa def. Bull Dempsey by submission. Split crowd, Bull was hilarious.

- Elias Sampson def. Tye Dillinger by pin. Dillinger was over, Sampson was booed.

- NXT Women's Champion Bayley def. Alexa Bliss. Bayley hits the Bayley to Belly for the pin and win.

- Apollo Crews def Baron Corbin. Standing moonsault to standing shooting star press into the pinfall. This was the best spot and match of the night in my opinion. 

- Nia Jaxx and Eva Marie def. Carmella and Peyton Royce. Leg drop from Jaxx onto Royce for the pin. Eve Marie didn't do a bad job at all. 

- NXT Champion Finn Balor def. Sami Zayn to retain. Balor pinned him after hitting the Coup De Grace. Multiple Bullet club references. Crowd was split. Awesome match.
