30 WTF Moments From WWE NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III


WWE Network

For the third year in a row it looks like WWE's developmental brand is going to completely steal the weekend from one of the main roster's supposed 'big four' as NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III provided another stellar night of action.

Right from the top of the show with the gritty, Attitude Era-esque performance from Code Orange, TakeOver: Brooklyn III will be remembered as a night with show-stealing matches coupled with a couple of monumental run-ins.

Johnny Gargano and Andrade Cien Almas kicked off proceedings with a pitch perfect opener that got the blood of all those in the arena pulsating. The Authors of Pain rather shockingly lost their Tag Team Championships to sAnitY in a different flavoured tag team bout to that we've come to expect from NXT with high risk very much on the agenda for all parties - even Nikki Cross.

Aleister Black and Hideo Itami did exactly what their match would have said if it had been on a tin, while Ember Moon truly arrived on the big stage in a valiant defeat to Asuka - with the record-breaking champion kicking out of Moon's Eclipse.

Finally, in what was a typical WWE main event-styled match, Drew McIntyre won the NXT Championship from Bobby Roode before Adam Cole arrived alongside Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly - who reformed earlier in the night while attacking both AOP and sAnitY - to Superkick the Fire Breathing Scottish Dragon before posing with the yellow brand's top prize.

Here are all the WTF Moments from a fantastic NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn III...
