NXT TakeOver: Toronto results and video highlights
NXT TakeOver comes to us from the Great White North for the first time ever as we head to Toronto, Canada to kick off Survivor Series weekend. The show had a stacked card headlined by Shinsuke Nakamura vs Samoa Joe and Asuka vs Mickey James. We also saw the NXT Tag-Team Championships defended, the finals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag-Team Classic and the grudge match between Bobby Roode and Tye Dillinger. Read on for full results and recap.
Bobby Roode vs Tye Dillinger
The match started off with a back and forth between Dillinger and Roode but the fired up ‘Perfect 10’ soon got the better of the Glorious one. Dillinger clotheslined him out of the ring twice, back to back, before taking the fight to the outside.
Unable to keep up with Dillinger’s early story of offence, Roode tried to beg for a few seconds of mercy only to receive a swift kick before Roode finally got a break after sending Dillinger crashing to the outside. Roode followed him out and attacked him from behind before smashing his face onto the apron.
Roode followed it up by Irish Whipping Dillinger into the corner which he followed by a takedown. Dillinger briefly attempted a comeback with a roll-up pin attempt but Roode kicked out before getting back on top of Dillinger.
Roode followed it up with the corner punches which Dillinger countered into an Atomic Drop before hitting Dillinger with a rapid series of strikes and clotheslines. Tye the hit Roode with stomps in the corner before gesturing for his finisher as Roode rolled out of the ring and tried to walk to the back.
Dillinger chased him and brought him back, only for Roode to hit him with a spine buster as soon as he re-entered the ring. Roode then hit a superplex from the top-rope which only got him a 2-count from the referee. Roode then gestured for Dillinger’s finisher and mocked him before reversing a Superkick attempt from Dillinger into a roll-up. However, the referee saw Roode using the ropes to leverage his count and stopped it as an indignant Bobby Roode protested.
Dillinger followed it up with a roll up of his own followed by a Superkick. Both men were down after this as they got up slowly before continuing their barrage of strikes, Dillinger followed it up with a Sharpshooter but Roode eventually reached the ropes.
Roode then sent a distracted Dillinger shoulder-first into the ring post which he followed by his patented DDT to get the pinfall.

A great way to kick off TakeOver: Toronto by the Canadian natives.
