NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida def. Santos Escobar in a 2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match

The potential x-factor of Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza at ringside was quickly neutralized by MSK, who fought them off before the referee ejected both duos. That cleared the way for Kushida and Santos Escobar to treat the NXT Universe to an instant classic.

Escobar claimed an initial advantage, planting NXT’s resident Time Splitter with a Phantom Driver for the first fall. But Kushida evened the tally just moments later, forcing Escobar to tap to a cross armbreaker.

The two warriors eventually found themselves on the top rope with Kushida applying the Hoverboard Lock before they plummeted to the mat. While The Emperor of Lucha Libre refused to submit a second time, and Kushida applied a picture-perfect bridging hammerlock suplex for the pin, retaining his title.
