NXT TAKEOVER: IN YOUR HOUSE 2021 MATCHES

Bronson Reed (North American) and MSK (Nash Carter and Wes Lee) (Tag Team) vs Legado Del Fantasma (Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde, and Raul Mendoza). Winner Takes All Six-man Tag Team match for both the NXT North American Championship and NXT Tag Team Championship

OUR PREDICTION: BRONSON REED & MSK
WINNER: BRONSON REED & MSK
RATING: 7/10

This was a nice opener to the show. Both teams worked together well and there were lots of fun spots. Bronson Reed was booked to look really strong in this match and it worked. He looked like a top star out there. MSK were great as always, and Legado Del Fantasma is amazing and should be on TV every week winning titles. The only problem with this match is that it didn’t have a big match feel. It felt like something we would see on a weekly episode of NXT. Overall a good opener.


Xia Li (with Boa and Mei Ying) vs Mercedes Martinez. Singles match

OUR PREDICTION: XIA LI
WINNER: XIA LI
RATING: 5/10

This was a good match but it didn’t feel that important. We appreciate the long term booking, but other than that it was an underwhelming match. The match was alright but was the worst of the night for sure. Hopefully a new rivalry starts soon. Xia Li put on a good performance and won the match in around eight minutes.


LA Knight vs Cameron Grimes. Ladder match for the vacant Million Dollar Championship

OUR PREDICTION: LA KNIGHT
WINNER: LA KNIGHT
RATING: 8/10

This was a really good match and would have been the match of the night if the main event didn’t happen. A lot of great spots here, such as a neck breaker onto the ladder. A shocking winner made this match better as well. ,ost people assumed that Cameron Grimes would win but LA Knight shocked the world. Overall a great match and came so close to being the best.


Raquel González (c) (with Dakota Kai) vs Ember Moon. Singles match for the NXT Women’s Championship

OUR PREDICTION: RAQUEL GONZALEZ
WINNER: RAQUEL GONZALEZ
RATING: 6/10

This was a solid match – nothing great but nothing bad either. Just a good wrestling match between two good wrestlers. González won with help from Dakota Kai who placed her feet on the ropes. At the end of the match Raquel González hit Ember Moon with a powerbomb to retain. It was nice to see Ember Moon back in the title picture. A solid match overall.


Karrion Kross (c) (with Scarlett) vs Kyle O’Reilly, Adam Cole, Johnny Gargano, and Pete Dunne. Fatal 5-Way match for the NXT Championship

OUR PREDICTION: KARRION KROSS
WINNER: KARRION KROSS
RATING: 9/10

This was a great match with many spots and interesting match ups. A really fast paced match as well. Karrion Kross proved that he can be a dominant champion as well. The match ended after Karrion Kross made Kyle O’Reilly pass out. Hopefully Karrion Kross has a feud with Johnny Gargano next because that could be really good if done correctly. Overall a great match with little problems.
