...
Samoa Joe defended his NXT Championship last night against Shinsuke Nakamura at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn last night. He fought valiantly but was eventually defeated by the King of Strong Style following twoKinshasa’s.Following the match, as Nakamura was in the ring celebrating his historic win, we saw the referee on the outside throwing up the ‘X’ while standing next to Joe who was clutching his jaw.

As TakeOver went off air, we could clearly see an enraged Samoa Joe being led out of the area by referees and medics.
