WWE NXT Takeover: Phoenix Results, January 26th, 2019, Latest NXT Winners & Video Highlights
NXT wrapped up another incredible Takeover. As always, it's going to be hard for the main roster to top that with the Royal Rumble. Here's what went down to kick off the Rumble weekend!
The Undisputed Era (c) vs War Raiders
The War Raiders made an impressive entrance and when The Undisputed Era began before the bell even rang. The War Raiders stopped them on their tracks and attacked them before the match finally started.
The early going saw The War Raiders dominate. Hanson attempted a suicide dive but he missed and that was clearly a big mistake. Roderick Strong and Kyle O'Reilly began to isolate Rowe until he had an opportunity to tag Hanson in. The champions controlled the match despite this.
The deceptively agile Hanson made his way in and started to take out the champions. He would hit a running splash on both of them. He eventually got neutralized before both teams tagged each other. Roderick Strong would also show an impressive feat of strength as he suplexed Hanson.
O'Reilly splashed on Hanson but it wasn't enough. The crowd chanted "Fight Forever" and after their "High low" got kicked out of for the first time ever, Hanson used his agility to take them both down. Rowe had both of them up and they hit the fallout on O'Reilly to get the win.

Kassius Ohno vs Matt Riddle
Matt Riddle started off with a superman punch on the outside. Ohno took control soon after. Riddle made a comeback with open palm strikes but Ohno landed a series of elbows. Riddle ate a brutal knee to the face and was even thrown on the steel steps.
Ohno blocked a suplex and stomped on Riddle's bare feet. Riddle still managed to pull off the suplex and hit the Yes Kicks. Ohno landed an incredible moonsault but it wasn't enough. Riddle caught Ohno in a rear naked submission.
Ohno escaped and Riddle began to elbow Ohno until the veteran was forced to tap to strikes! We've never seen that before in WWE.
