NXT house show results, Sheffield 12/12: Balor vs. Zayn vs. Corbin for NXT Title

By Matt Barker

Arena was nearly full for what was put on sale as it was cut at the half way point with the top tier curtained off.

Ring announcer Brown Shoes welcomes us.

Match 1 Enzo and Cass beat Blake and Murphy. Crowd were massively into all the catchphrases of the faces.

Match 2 Bull Dempsey over Tye Dillinger with a top rope sit down splash.Crowd got into the perfect ten gimmick.

Match 3 Samoa Joe defeated Apollo Crews with a musclebuster. Good match.Lots of Uhaa chants for Crews.

Match 4 Bayley beat Emma with Baylay to Bayley.

Match 5 Dawson and Dash  beat Jordan and Gable. Match of the night a very good old school tag team match. Half way through some idiot jumped the rail and got in the ring. Security got him quick however. Jordan and Gable are just brilliant and were very popular with the audience.

Match 6 Asuka over Carmella via submission.

Match 7 Finn Balor beat Sami Zayn and Baron Corbin in a three way dance. Zayn got huge ole chants prior to his entrance. As Corbin was pinning Zayn,Balor came off the top with a coup de grace on him for the win.

Decent night of action, only downside was the trouble getting into the arena, queue was massive in the rotten UK winter cold and they were confiscating items including my pregnant wife's handbag and even fans umbrellas. I understand why with the heightened security issues but it was taken too far tonight.
