Okey dokey, friends. That was a pretty dang good TakeOver. I enjoyed it a lot. You? 

We'll see you all tomorrow for WWE SummerSlam. Well, I mean, I won't be doing this, but I'll be around. Probably eating a granola bar and pointing at the screen and going "DUDE, WRITE ABOUT THAT!"

Seriously, though, everyone have a great night and thank you for reading. We appreciate you all. Full results coming in a bit.

01:28 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Anyway, enough rambling from me. Let's get those match results.

01:28 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Plus, since I do the NXT Live Card every week, if Kross as champion means I get to see Scarlett do that lip syncing to his theme song entrance thing at least once a week, then who am I to complain.

I'm not trying to objectify the woman, I just think it's cool when she does that.

01:26 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Let's be honest... it was TakeOver Thirty. It had to end with something major like that.

Do I think it was the right call? Not really? Am I going to throw a fit about it? Nah. Whatever. It's wrestling. 

01:24 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Well, let's let the "Lee to Main Roster" Internet talk begin!

01:23 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

01:22 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Whoa. Kross with a Doomsday Suplex off the second rope and... gets the win?

RESULT: Karrion Kross defeats Keith Lee to become NXT Champion

01:21 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

I like Kross a lot but if they give him the belt this early... that's dumb.

01:20 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Lee with the Spirit Bomb! Kross still manages to kick out.

01:20 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

01:19 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Ref does that whole "see if the arm drops three times" thing that was big in the 1980s and it doesn't drop the third time and now Lee has reached the ropes.

01:18 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kross sinches in the Kross Jacket, which is an awesome move and a stupid name for a move.

01:17 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kross with that Doomsday Suplex, but Keith STILL kicks out.

01:17 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Did Scarlett hand Kross something?

No.

01:16 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

01:16 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

I should clearly turn in my Internet Wrestling Writer card.

01:15 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

It wasn't nearly as good as JBL's.

01:15 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kross with a Clothesline From Hell, which was impressive but... I can't believe I'm going to say this....

01:14 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kross goes for his Doomsday Saito Suplex but Lee is all "nuh uh" or something like that and hits him with a regular suplex. 

01:13 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kross with an exhausted DDT and kick to the head (not in that order) but also only gets a 2.

01:11 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Lee with a powerslam and a pin, but only gets a 2.

01:11 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

This has been a really good match.

01:10 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Lee turns the armbar into a pin, and then a powerbomb.

01:09 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kross tries to get another armbar on Lee, but the champ has his hands clamped together.

01:07 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Scarlett yelling "you're weak, Lee!" which, let's admit it, that's not very nice.

01:06 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Lee charges, but crashes into the ring post. Cross goes for a pin and gets a 2.

01:05 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kross working on Lee's arm - an arm that got caught between the plexiglass and security wall.

01:04 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

01:04 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kross gets knocked out of the ring, but eventually gets control.

The challenger gets Lee against the plexiglass and goes for a punch - that lands right onto the plexiglass, as Lee dodges it. Lee turns his head slowly and glares at Kross.

Lee smashes the plastic panel in anger causing the plexiglass to come loose. Lee smirks at this, and even Kross finds it amusing.

01:01 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

First, the announcers call Lee and Dominik Dijakovic "rivals", then "friendly rivals" and now they're "best friends"?

01:00 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Bell rings and Lee attacks immediately, as has been the running theme tonight.

01:00 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

00:59 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Really? They're billing Kross from "Sin City"? No pun, like "Death Valley" or "Cleveland, OH"?

00:59 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

00:58 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Karrion Kross and Scarlett make their (admittedly amazing) entrance and, as it ends, the crowd gives it... polite applause?

00:57 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Karrion Kross vs NXT Champion Keith Lee for said championship is up now. 

00:52 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Damien Priest is celebrating in a hot tub with some ladies - I'm guessing he has ladies and a hot tub on him at all times in case he needs to celebrate something suddenly?

00:51 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Tomasso Ciampa returns to action this Wednesday.

Cesaro is in the crowd.

00:50 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Looks like NXT UK is coming back.

00:50 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

When the mess is all clear, Io is in the ring celebrating with her belt. Ripley stands on the stages and glares at her, as if Io just cut in line in front of her at Chik-Fil-A.

00:47 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kai pulls Gonzalez out of the ring before the two can come to blows.

00:47 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Staredoooooooooooooooooooooown

00:47 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

00:47 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Raquel Gonzalez attacks Shirai after the pinfall, but Rhea Ripley hits the ring to make the save.

00:46 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Shirai with a moonsault to the floor onto Kai and Gonzalez, then hits Kai with a solo one to get the 3 and the win.

RESULT: Io Shirai defeats Dakota Kai

00:45 (GMT)23 AUG 2020

Kai goes for that GTS but Io reverses it into a crossface. Ref is groggy, so Io just knees her in the face instead,
