WWE NXT tapings spoilers (29/11/2017) Big title change and TakeOver: Philly main event confirmed
What does NXT have in store for us going into NXT TakeOver: Philly?
Full Sail Arena was packed and ready to see what the next few weeks of programming would be like for the NXT Universe. As everyone is still shaking from the aftershock of NXT TakeOver: WarGames, the Philly TakeOver event is just around the corner and there needed to be some big movement toward that WWE Network special.
The only drawback I could pick out from this set of tapings is a lack of Velveteen Dream. After his insanely good match against Aleister Black at NXT TakeOver: WarGames where everyone was saying his name afterwards, he really should be featured a lot more. Let's just hope they're able to insert him into the episodes somehow via backstage segments.
Beware, this article is one big spoiler after another, so as long as you're prepared for that let's get right into it.
Wolfgang vs Kona Reeves
Kona Reeves is a guy with a huge upside, but he was unsuccessful against Wolfgang in the opening contest of the night. It's great to see Wolfie back to wrestling shape because he had to miss some recent events after he was injured in Aberdeen, Scotland and had to sit out the rest of that tour.
Winner: Wolfgang via pinfall
Andrade "Cien" Almas speaks
The new NXT Champion had a chance to address the Full Sail crowd and in a promo which was delivered in English and Spanish, he boasted about his ring ability and how he's the top star of the company.
Along with Zelina Vega, Almas drew a ton of heat while he took credit for injuring Drew McIntyre which is what you do if you're a heel like that. He said people needed to embrace the legend and rise for him.
He really does make a great champion, but I just wonder how long he'll be holding on to that title.
