NXT Des Moines, IA, live results: Asuka vs. Ember Moon; Nakamura in tag main event

NXT Des Moines

Submitted by Jared Walsh from the Hy-Vee Hall. Thanks to David Anderson for his report and main image.

Estimated attendance: 1000

- Rich Swann def. Tino Sabbatelli via pinfall

Short, fun opener. Swann definitely had some momentum after the Cruiserweight Classic and was quite over with the fans.

- Daria Berenato def. Peyton Royce via pinfall

- Tye Dillinger def. Riddick Moss via pinfall 

The people approved of the Perfect 10 in a big way.

- Hideo Itami defeated Austin Aries via pinfall. Crowd made a lot of noise after Itami hit the GTS to pick up the victory.

- NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival def. TM61 to retain

Lots of near falls, great back and forth action, and wonderfully entertaining heel tactics from the Revival. Dash and Dawson draw real hatred from the crowd -- a rarity today.

- NXT Women's Champion Asuka def. Ember Moon by submission

Fans were relatively into this match. The women embraced afterwards as the crowd cheered for what was a pretty good match.

- NXT Champion Shinsuke Nakamura & No Way Jose defeated Bobby Roode & Samoa Joe

The crowd was a big fan of all four men, and much of the match built around each man's particular pose. Some great action towards the end sent the fans home in high spirits as this match certainly received the biggest cheers of the evening. Post-match, Nakamura thanked the Iowa fans for coming out, and he received a massive ovation as he posed and made his way out.

WWE will return to Des Moines with the SmackDown roster on October 23.
