Another NXT TakeOver special is in the bag, as The End has come and gone. Samoa Joe successfully defended his NXT Championship against Finn Balor in NXT's first ever cage match, surely putting the full stop at the end of their lengthy feud.

Elsewhere, The Revival regained the NXT Tag Championships from American Alpha, who were subsequently ambushed after the match by two large chaps seemingly under the tutelage of WWE Hall of Famer Paul Ellering. The former La Sombra made his debut as Andrade 'Cien' Almost, vanquishing 'The Perfect Ten' Tye Dillinger in impressive fashion. Finally The Coolest Man That Ever Lived defeated The Greatest Man That Ever Lived, as Shinsuke Nakamura overcame Austin Aries.

NXT TakeOver: The End... was loaded with questions going in, but now that the dust has settled have any of them been answered?
