Two of the three titles saw the champions walked out unchanged. The women’s Tag team championship however, changed hands. Yes, that’s right. Io Shirai and Zoey Stark have defeated Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell to win the Women’s Tag Team Championships. Although, they may have had a little help along the way (Get it?).

NXT have been putting out a battery charging teaser for weeks now. The battery charger finally hit 100% tonight and out came Tegan Nox. Her appearance caused a huge distraction that allowed Shirai to take out LeRae and Stark to nail her finisher on Indi for the win.

Nox then attacked LeRae herself, chasing her all the way to the back while Shirai and Stark celebrated their victory in the ring.

Like most combat sports enthusiasts, his passion for watching people fight began with WWE when he witnessed a young Brock Lesnar massacre Hulk Hogan back in 2002. This very passion soon branched out to boxing and mixed martial arts. Over the years he fell in love with the theatrics that preceded the bell and the poetic carnage that followed after. Each bruise a story to tell, each wound a song of struggle, his greatest desire is to be there to witness it all. His favorite wrestler is Shawn Michaels and he believes that GSP is the greatest to ever step foot inside the octagon. Apart from wrestling, he is also fond of poetry and music.
