Live report from the 5/24 NXT house show in Deland, FL

by Dennis Boyle

Deland, Florida. 5/24/2013

Brad Maddox introduced the show as the “Man in charge”. Very, very funny segment.

Alexsander Rusev won a 12 man Battle Royal to become # 1 Contender for the NXT Title last eliminating Sami Zayn & Xavier Woods. Other participants were Conor O’Brien & Rick Victor (who worked together the whole time.), Baron Corbin, Mojo Rawley, Colin Cassady, Knuckles Madsen, Jason Jordan, Jake Carter, & Dante Dash.

Leo Kruger def. Mason Ryan with a rollup/handfull of tights. An unexpectedly hilarious comedy match. Second live event I’ve been to where Kruger doesn’t play his creepy character, rather, he has a comedy match. So much fun.

Luke Harper def. Corey Graves with a spinning Lariat in by far the MOTN. They put on a hell of a match despite low attendance. Very good stuff here.

Emma, Charlotte, & Bayley def. Paige, Sasha Banks, & Kendall Skye. Really good stuff. Emma’s team played heels. Emma beat Kendall with her back bridge facelock submission.

Garrett Dylan & Scott Dawson (w/Sylvester LeFort) def. Aiden English & Mickey Keegan. Mickey used to be Axl, I guess the name change is because of “Curtis Axel” on TV. Good stuff here. Dylan pins Keegan following their tag team finishers. LeFort is SUCH a good manager. A real throwback.

NXT Champion Bo Dallas def. Alexsander Rusev with his catch/throw suplex to retain the Title.

A great night as usual. NXT Live Events are the best.
