WWE NXT results: Breakout Tournament finals

The finals of the Breakout Tournament and the return of Breezango were featured on an episode of NXT that also included fallout from TakeOver: Toronto.

Two matches that aired on this show were taped prior to the main card this past Saturday. Jordan Myles faced Cameron Grimes in the Breakout Tournament finals. Breezango also reunited in a tag team match against The Forgotten Sons.

Also included in the episode was a music video that focused on the new heel persona of Io Shirai. The segment dubbed “Descent into Darkness” showed clips of Shirai mixed into a video for the song “Scary Mask” by recording artist Poppy and the band Fever 333. 

The feature was reminiscent of music video packages from the original ECW as it mixed wrestling footage with contemporary music. Aside from the matches featured on this episode, this was arguably the best thing on the show.

Announced for next week is Matt Riddle vs. Killian Dain in a grudge match coming off their recent angle at TakeOver.

Highlights of matches from the supercard this past weekend also included several post-match interviews. Some of the recaps also included “exclusive footage,” which was mostly alternate camera angles.

Post-match interviews from TakeOver included Cathy Kelley being berated by Undisputed Era about their loss to The Street Profits. Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish insisted in their interview that the illegal man was pinned. An alternate camera angle backed up their claim, so a rematch is likely imminent. 

Other post-match interviews included comments from Pete Dunne and NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler.

Breezango (Tyler Breeze & Fandango) defeated The Forgotten Sons (Steve Cutler & Wesley Blake w/ Jaxson Ryker)

Fandango pinned Blake after a double-team finisher (pictured above). Breezango looked good in their return as a team. The comedic aspect of their team was seemingly gone as they had a serious match. Ryker interfered at one point, which led to him being ejected from ringside. 

Ryker first interfered early in the match without the referee seeing him. On his second attempt at interference, the ref caught him in the act. Ryker was then ordered to leave ringside.

The Sons worked over Breeze for a few moments before he made a hot tag. Fandango cleaned house and ran wild. He was cut off and The Sons got a near fall that was broken up.

Fandango did a tope con giro in the run-up to the finish. Breeze had Blake in a bridge over his knees when Fandango springboarded into a flying elbow drop that led to the pinfall.

Jordan Myles defeated Cameron Grimes in the finals of the Breakout Tournament

Myles pinned Grimes using a 450 splash. In winning, Myles gets an NXT title shot of his choice at a later date.

They started with grappling and soon quickened the pace. Myles targeted Grimes’ leg with a dropkick and kicks. The fight spilled outside, where Grimes cut off Myles.

Grimes then began working over Myles until he made a comeback.

Myles delivered a penalty kick as he ran down the apron. Back in the ring, Myles leapt off the top with a flying crossbody for a count of two. They began trading near falls in the latter portion of the match.

Grimes executed an Orange Crush for two. Myles countered with a modified uranage combined with a bridging German suplex for another near fall. A running Spanish Fly of sorts led to a double down. 

Grimes looked to finish, but Myles wagged his finger at him and fired up. Myles gave Grimes a brainbuster to set up a Midnight Star 450 splash for the pinfall.

William Regal came out to congratulate Myles, and Regal also presented Myles with a contract for a future title match of his choice. Myles celebrated with the contract as the show closed.
