NXT TakeOver V: Unstoppable is a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by WWE for its developmental division, NXT and is the 279th episode of NXT. It took place live on the WWE Network on May 20, 2015 at Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.


As the sold-out NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable took charge of the award-winning WWE Network, absolute bedlam rocked the NXT Championship Match, the NXT Women’s Title Match took the action to a whole different level and an earth-shattering new force stepped through the yellow ropes.

Following a mysterious attack on Hideo Itami in the parking lot of the NXT Arena, hours before TakeOver: Unstoppable, it was determined that he was unable to compete.

As a result, the previously scheduled Triple Threat NXT Title No. 1 Contender’s Match was transformed into a fierce one-on-one showdown between Finn Bálor (sporting an even more intimidating demonic look than ever before) and the extremely self-consumed Tyler Breeze. And in the height of the outrageous action, after leaping onto his opponent from high on top of the arena entrance way, The Demon finished him off with the Coup de Grace.

As the dust cleared, NXT Champion Kevin Owens was spotted watching his new No. 1 contender on from a backstage monitor.

In the final moments of an explosive tag team showdown between four of NXT’s most innovative Divas, Bayley drove Dana Brooke out of the ring, clearing the way for Charlotte to overcome Emma with Natural Selection. would like to give a special thank you to Motionless in White for "Unstoppable", the official theme song of NXT TakeOver: Unstoppable.

After answering the challenge by ECW Original Rhyno one week ago, lighting the fuse on an out-of-control brawl in the process – Baron Corbin conquered the legendary Man Beast in an all-out war with End of Days.

After leading the NXT Universe in the all-too-familiar declaration of their virtues, Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady – flanked by Carmella – prepared to take on Blake & Murphy for the NXT Tag Team Titles. It was just two weeks ago that the titleholders launched a backstage attack on the outspoken tandem and they were out for nothing short of absolute payback from the opening bell.

But just when it looked like Enzo and Cassady might be close the victory, Alexa Bliss appeared from nowhere and attacked Carmella. Then, in the chaos that followed, the scheming Diva pushed Enzo Amore from the top rope and sealed the fate of the No. 1 contenders.

With Total Divas star Eva Marie sitting in the crowd, Becky Lynch attempted to unseat NXT Women’s Champion Sasha Banks in highly personal, knockdown, drag out battle for Diva supremacy.

And only after the battling beauties left every bit of themselves in the ring, Sasha managed to knock her determined challenger off the ropes and forced her to tap out to the Bank Statement out of nowhere.

In a highly anticipated rematch, former best friends Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens went head-to-head for the NXT Championship.

The early mind games by the champion soon gave way to a true brawl, both inside and outside the ring and into the NXT Universe. Back in the ring, like a man possessed, Zayn seemed to have an answer for almost everything Owens threw at him – that was until the action moved back outside and Owens suddenly hit him with a Pop-up Powerbomb into the ring apron. From there, the vicious titleholder would not relent, refusing to let Zayn get checked out, unleashing an absolute onslaught on his defenseless adversary.

When Owens pulled the injured opponent back into to ring and a series of referees couldn’t get him to back off long enough to check out Zayn, NXT General Manager William Regal tried to physically interject. Owen responded by head-butting him before going for a chair.

Then, out of nowhere, Samoa Joe stepped into the NXT Universe! The tough-as-nails competitor climbed into the ring without hesitation and stood face-to-face with the brutal titleholder. Owens ultimately opted to back away from the confrontation, leaving the fired up NXT Universe to wonder what will happen next.
