Tyler Bate makes his NXT debut and more.
NXT kicked-off with Tom Phillips who was flanked by Percy Watson and the outgoing Corey Graves. We were informed that WWE UK Champion Tyler Bate would be making his NXT debut in a match against Oney Lorcan.
Ember Moon vs Aliyah
The Texas crowd was firmly behind their fellow Texan, Ember Moon, who hails from nearby Dallas. Aliyah started the match with an early pinning attempt but Moon soon took firm control of the match. She hit Aliyah with stiff kicks before hitting a beautiful double underhook suplex before locking in a painful looking abdominal stretch.
Aliyah eventually managed to break out and hit a hip toss and followed it with a neckbreaker. Aliyah continued her momentum with a head scissors only for Ember Moon to hit back with a brutal clothesline. Ember made short work of Aliyah and followed the clothesline with an Eclipse (Twisting Stunner) before pinning her for the 3-count. Another impressive performance from Ember Moon.
