WWE NXT Results (November 27th, 2019): Sudden injury changes NXT Tag Title match, Adam Cole saves Finn Balor?
Josiah Williams kicked off NXT with a celebration of the roster. The NXT Superstars ran through the Full Sail crowd as we saw highlights from the black and gold brand's dominance over RAW and SmackDown at Survivor Series.
An absolutely incredible performance, NXT trounced the other brands in a 4-2-1 victory, with the blue brand racking up two wins while the flagship show only managed to pick up a single victory.
The Undisputed Era cut the fun short, however, claiming that nobody in or around the ring actually did anything at Survivor Series. Adam Cole said that without them, none of this would've been possible. The NXT Champion claimed that they dominated at War Games, though a replay from Saturday's TakeOver would prove otherwise.
Tommaso Ciampa refreshed their memories about that night. That was the beginning of the end of the Undisputed Era. Tonight, the collapse of the group would continue when Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic captured the NXT Tag Team Titles. As far as Goldy's concerned, "Daddy Ciampa" has his eyes set on the prize once again.
Finn Balor appeared at the top of the ramp, walking in between the Undisputed Era. The former Universal Champion stepped up to Ciampa. The Blackhearted One responded by claiming to be the king to Balor's prince, and looked to set up a match between one another tonight.
Following that, Keith Lee beckoned the NXT Tag Team Champions, demanding that they enter the ring for their title match.
NXT Tag Team Championship Match: Keith Lee & Dominik Dijakovic vs The Undisputed Era (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) (c)
The champions jumped their challengers out the gate, sending Dijakovic outside. Lee withstood the pressure, standing up to the two-on-one assault. O'Reilly was knocked out to the floor where he was hit by a flying FIsh, courtesy of Lee.
The Era took time to recover outside before Fish rolled in. O'Reilly wanted the tag, though, and faced the Limitless One instead. Lee's powerful grip left O'Reilly writhing in pain as his wrist was twisted around the ring. Dijakovic tagged in, and caught the champion who ran in with a running crossbody.
A knee to the mid section and a toss sent O'Reilly flying into the challengers' corner. O'Reilly did manage to get back to his corner where he tagged in Roderick Strong, who replaced FIsh mid-match due to medical reasons. From what we saw, a bad landing on the outside saw Fish land knee first, forcing him out of the match.
Lee and Dijakovic weren't shaken by the switch-up, as they continued to dominate the era with their unbelievable combined power. However, we saw a little dissension between the challengers, as the former rivals seemed to both want to take the lead in the match.
They shook that off when the Era jumped them. Dijakovic stacked up Strong and O'Reilly and dropped Lee on top of them with a release suplex. Dijakovic wasn't able to brag for long, though, as the champions took out his left knee. Strong worked him in a single leg Boston crab before it was fought off. Strong responded with a leaping dropkick to the seated giant.
Back from the commercial break, O'Reilly was tearing away at Dijakovic's leg. The big man sent him flying into his corner where Strong tagged in. Strong and O'Reilly struggled to keep him from tagging, but Dijakovic managed to get his partner in.
The Survivor Series all-star rocked both members of the Era, battering then with elbow strikes and launching O'Reilly into Strong. Both men escaped Spirit Bomb situations, but were dumped overhead with double overhead exploder suplexes. They rolled outside and baited Lee to moving to the apron.
From there, Strong and O'Reilly took over, chopping him down and stunning him with a flying knee. Back inside, Lee avoided a splash from Strong and knocked out O'Reilly with a headbutt. Dijakovic tagged in and mauled Strong in the corner. A facebuster and spinning clothesline turned Strong inside out.
Strong went back to his left leg, taking him down to one knee. As O'Reilly tagged in, he was met by a chokeslam. He countered with a triangle choke, though. Dijakovic was able to lift him and catch Strong by the neck for a chokeslam/powerbomb combination. O'Reilly kicked out.
More shots to Dijakovic's leg allowed the champions to escape and try to back up the ramp. Lee stopped them, and though he was taken out by a chop block, Dijakovic launched himself on top of them with a springboard rolling senton.
Back inside, a double chokeslam bounced the NXT Champions off the mat. Cole tried to rush the ring but Keith Lee bounced him into the crowd with a massive pounce. Dijakovic was so stunned by that move that he didn't notice the Era set up the High Low.
Results: The Undisputed Era defeated Dominik Dijakovic & Keith Lee via pinfall.
