WWE.com: Bálor, Bayley and American Alpha Do Their Best Shinsuke Nakamura Impression At Last NXT Live Event Before WWE Draft

Though the news that six NXT Superstars will be selected in tomorrow’s WWE Draft has changed everything, some of NXT’s brightest stars can still manage to smile in the face of the unknown that lies ahead.

At Saturday’s NXT Live Event in Louisville, Ky., Finn Bálor, Shinsuke Nakamura, Bayley and American Alpha joined forces for a 10-Superstar Mixed Tag Team Match. After the huge battle, the six Superstars gathered in the middle of the ring for a celebratory “too sweet,” then ran to the ropes to unleash their own version of The King of Strong Style’s trademark pose.

After the celebration, Bálor grabbed the microphone and asked the NXT Universe in attendance if a window or door was open, because he felt a “Draft.” The quip drew a big reaction from the crowd, who were excited at the prospect of seeing their favorite NXT stars on WWE’s biggest stages.

While the future is unknown right now for Bálor, Nakamura, Bayley, Jason Jordan and Chad Gable and the rest of NXT’s roster, the prospect of among the six Superstars called up doesn’t seem to be weighing them down. Will any of them be among those chosen to join Raw and SmackDown’s roster? Find out during the WWE Draft, tomorrow on the debut episode of SmackDown Live, at 8/7 C on USA Network!

#6. American Alpha vs. The Revival — NXT Tag Team Championship Match – NXT TakeOver: The End…

Watching this match in slow-motion might be the best way to enjoy it: The action is so fast, furious and crisply executed that the finer details may be lost in the sheer speed at which it unfolds on the screen. With twin wrestling machines American Alpha defending their titles against satin-jacket bruisers The Revival, the NXT Universe expected a contest of the highest caliber, and they got one, plus a little history to boot: Revival’s eventual win made them the first team to hold the NXT Tag Team Championship on two separate occasions.

NXT Tag Team Champions The Revival def. American Alpha (2-out-of-3 Falls Match)

Tensions were running high as The Revival and American Alpha awaited the opening bell of their 2-out-of-3 Falls Match for the NXT Tag Team Championship. Dash & Dawson found themselves retreating quickly in the opening moments of the match, as Chad Gable slipped out of Dash Wilder’s clutches and applied an ankle lock that could have ended the first fall. American Alpha turned the tides of the fall in their favor, but Gable took a nasty fall to the arena floor that put The Revival right back in control.

Dash & Dawson did everything they could to put Alpha away in the first fall, whether it was bending the rules or crushing Gable with a Veg-O-Matic off the top rope. Nothing could stop Gable, and he finally tagged Jordan in. The red-hot Jordan injected some life into the match, bulldozing through The Revival and picking up the first fall by forcing Wilder to tap out to an ankle lock.

However, The Revival had targeted Jordan’s leg in the first fall, which paid off shortly after the second fall started, as Scott Dawson trapped Jordan in an inverted Figure-Four Leglock. Wilder prevented Gable from breaking up the hold, leaving Jordan no choice but to tap out.

With the bout even at one fall apiece, the third fall was electric from the start. Both teams threw everything they had at each other, trying to quickly put an end to this epic contest. Dawson went back to the submission that won the second fall on Jordan, but Gable saved the day with a diving headbutt from the top rope. The bout spilled out to the apron, where Gable tried to German suplex Dawson to the arena floor. In the end, Dawson emerged from the struggle with the advantage, with Dash creeping up behind him to deliver a bone-jarring Shatter Machine on the ring apron that sealed the third fall for The Revival, giving them a 2-1 victory and ensuring that they held onto the NXT Tag Team Championship.

The Revival find out when their next title defense will be

Immediately after their victory, Gargano & Ciampa made it clear that they felt an NXT Tag Team Title match with The Revival was theirs for the taking. However, former champions American Alpha begged to differ. Jason Jordan & Chad Gable, who are owed a rematch against Dash & Dawson, said that the line for a title match starts with them.

The Revival disagreed with both teams, declaring that they dictate when they’ll defend their titles. NXT General Manager William Regal quickly arrived, reminding Dash & Dawson that he runs the show. But while Regal agreed that Gargano & Ciampa are deserving of a title opportunity and will get one in the future, the score needed to be settled between The Revival and American Alpha first. That will happen next week on WWE Network, when the two square off for the NXT Tag Team Championship in a 2-out-of-3 Falls Match!

A disappointed Gargano & Ciampa shook Jordan & Gable’s hands before leaving the ring. American Alpha was ready for their title showdown next week, but unfortunately, not for the blindside attack from The Authors of Pain. The monstrous duo demolished Jordan, Gable, Gargano and Ciampa handily while Paul Ellering watched the carnage unfold. Whoever walks out of next week’s title match will certainly have to keep an eye out for the devastating Authors of Pain.

#7. American Alpha

Yes, yes, they’re new. Who cares? This team of wrestling machines has been pushing the limit in NXT for close to a year now, riding the wave of a fun catchphrase (“Ready, Willing and Gable”) and the kind of hybrid style that keeps opponents guessing – often fruitlessly – of ways to keep up. True, they aren’t much for high-flying, but Jason Jordan & Chad Gable are mat-game innovators, bending boundaries and opponents’ joints in ways never thought possible. We always used to wonder what would happen if there were two Kurt Angles. Now we know.
