NXT Sanford, FL, live results: Matt Riddle debuts


Editor's note: This article references results from NXT's United Kingdom Women's Championship tournament.

Last night's estimated attendance: 350 people.

- Kassius Ohno defeated Stacey Ervin Jr.

This was the debut of Ervin Jr., an incredible gymnast who signed with WWE and reported to the Performance Center as part of the July class.

Ervin went for a corkscrew moonsault off the top rope and landed on his feet as Ohno moved out of the way. Ohno then hit a rolling elbow and a running senton for the victory. After the match, Ohno gave Ervin an elbow bump of approval.

- Io Shirai & Kacy Catanzaro defeated Aliyah & Kavita Devi

The crowd loved Shirai and Catanzaro here, and they showed top-tier athleticism. Shirai hit a moonsault for the win.

- Matt Riddle defeated Fabian Aichner

The audience erupted for the debut of Riddle. They had a great back-and-forth match with all the signature moves you'd see from Riddle on the independent scene.

Riddle hit running forearm strikes in the corner, a fishermanbuster, a running senton, and won with a powerbomb where he followed up with a knee strike.

- Vanessa Borne defeated Taynara Conti

Borne used a running swinging reverse neckbreaker for the finish.

- Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch defeated Kona Reeves & Luke Menzies

Lorcan and Burch picked up the win with their elevated double-team DDT.

- Adam Cole defeated Keith Lee

Great match between these two. Cole survived everything that Lee dished out and was able to lower his knee pad and deliver a shining wizard to the back of the head to get an impressive win.

- NXT Tag Team Champions Kyle O'Reilly & Roderick Strong defeated Humberto Carrillo & Raul Mendoza

Another great match on a show that had a high quality of in-ring action. O'Reilly and Strong survived countless topes, double-team maneuvers, and unbelievable lucha moves by this new team of Carrillo and Mendoza.

O'Reilly and Strong then used Total Elimination to get the win. The crowd gave a standing ovation to Carrillo and Mendoza following the match.

- NXT United Kingdom Women's Champion Rhea Ripley defeated Nikki Cross to retain her title

The crowd loved Cross' antics and really wanted her to win, but Ripley stole the victory while having her feet on the ropes for the pin.

- NXT North American Champion Ricochet & The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) defeated Dominik Dijakovic & The Mighty (Shane Thorne & Nick Miller)

Another great matchup on one of the best Florida loop house shows in years. Ricochet and The Street Profits won with a triple frog splash before going around ringside to celebrate.
