BOBBY ROODE VS. HIDEO ITAMI, LANA TESTING NEW GIMMICK?: 4/20 WWE NXT IN TAMPA, FLORIDA RESULTS

By Steve Whitmeyer on 2017-04-21 08:53:00

I caught the NXT show in Tampa, which featured the first-ever Itami vs. Roode match last night.  It was great.  Itami scored a number of two counts and had Roode rocking with kicks and strikes but was caught with a low blow and the implant DDT to score the pin. Really enjoyable.

Undercard results:

*Heavy Machinery defeated Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake. 

*No Way Jose defeated Tino Sabbatelli.  Sabbatelli has gotten really good since the last time I saw him.

*Kona Reeves pinned Dan Matha.

*Liv Morgan and Lacey Evans defeated Mandy Rose and Bianca Blair.  Rose is gorgeous.

Kassius Ohno & Roderick Strong & Buddy Murphy defeated Sanity.  Fun six man. It's about time Murphy had something of worth to do.

*Rich Swann defeated Noam Dar in a 205 Live match.

*Lana pinned Ruby Riot.   Lana was doing a dancing gimmick, making me wonder if they are preparing her for a new persona on Smackdown.  Mary Kate worked as her manager.
