NXT Tampa, FL, live results: Joe & Nakamura face off in tag team action

I'm here in Tampa, FL for NXT Live. Expecting a crowd of 400 tonight

- Kenneth Crawford defeated Steve Cutler

New persona for Crawford as he had a white top hat and ringleader outfit on the way to the ring. He won via roll-up to further upset the angry Cutler

- Niko Bogojevic & Tucker Knight defeated Beautiful Blonde Blake & Adrian Jaoude

Before the match, Blake put over Jaoude as an Olympic hopeful and said he didn't need Murphy anymore. The powerhouse team won after Bogojevic hit a Vader Bomb on Jaoude.

- Oney Lorcan defeated Riddick Moss

Physical striking match, they worked hard until the finish where Lorcan hit a diving uppercut for the win.

- Andrade "Cien" Almas defeated Buddy Murphy

Very good match here as Murphy could work with Almas' lucha style. There were smooth wheelbarrow transitions and they exchanged near falls. Almas went for the running knees, but Murphy hit a superkick out of the corner. Almas was able to apply his key lock leg sweep DDT for the win.

- Austin Aries defeated Patrick Clark

Crowd had no idea how to react to this as neither are fan favorites at this time. Aries won with a brainbuster.

- In-ring promo with Jeet Rama where he said he's happy to be here and he has heart. He thanked the crowd.

- Ember Moon defeated Mandy Rose

Match started slow as Rose had control, but Moon hit a running corner forearm and the top rope stunner for the win.

- NXT Champion Samoa Joe & The Authors Of Pain defeated Shinsuke Nakamura, No Way Jose, & Tino Sabbatelli

Long match with a lot of different match-ups, Nakamura and Joe opened and went through a feeling out process. Once No Way Jose got in the match he was destroyed by the big men for an extended period of time.

Sabbatelli got the hot tag and ran wild with big stinger splashes in the corners, a high dropkick, and even a cross body on Joe. After everyone got involved and it broke down, Joe caught Sabbatelli in the clutch for the submission. Post-match, Shinsuke cleared house and even hit the Kinshasa on Joe. He proclaimed that he would take the title in Brooklyn.
