New NXT Champion Adrian Neville wasted no time jumping back into action following his historic victory over Bo Dallas at NXT ArRIVAL. “The Man That Gravity Forgot” overcame an initial onslaught to defeat WWE Superstar Camacho with a championship-caliber Red Arrow.
After the match, the high-flying Superstar stated that the best part of being champion meant “No More Bo.” This incited the smug former champion to rain on Neville’s parade and announce it’s only a matter of time before he cashes in his rematch clause.
WWE Hall of Famer Ric Flair and his NXT Diva daughter Charlotte have been hard at work backstage planting the seeds of doubt into the heads of Emma and NXT Divas Champion Paige. The plan worked on this night, as the daughter of the 16-time World Champion faked an injury to her leg – catching a distracted Emma off-guard – to pick up the victory in their singles match. It appears The Dirtiest Player in the Game has taught his daughter well.
Before his match, Corey Graves voiced his disgruntlement with being left off the NXT ArRIVAL event in favor of Sami Zayn. The “Savior of Misbehavior” seemed to be in no mood to take on Yoshi Tatsu as he started to walk away from the ring. It turned out Graves wasn’t so shy about competing after all, as he attacked the trailing Tatsu to pick up a count-out victory. Luckily, Sami Zayn emerged to save Yoshi from Graves’ unrelenting attack and challenged his new adversary to a match later in the night.
Adam Rose made his highly anticipated NXT in-ring debut, taking the party with him all the way to the ring. The self-proclaimed conductor of the “Exotic Express” was impressive, making quick work of Wesley Blake after a Jurassic-sized clothesline.
Despite Corey Graves announcing earlier in the evening that he was more than capable of taking on Sami Zayn in the middle of the ring, the Canadian-born Superstar proved to be too quick for Graves. Graves was able to ground Zayn with his submission offense, successfully controlling the pace of the match for a time. However, with the NXT Universe firmly in his corner, Zayn walked out the winner after countering Graves for the pinfall victory.
