Corbin is backstage and says Aries knows that what happened to him last time will happen again. At Takeover he will lose. He should go back to the crowds of 50 whilst Corbin will continue being the hottest start in NXT. There’s no shame in losing to a bigger man. The End of Days is coming for him.

A video package airs ahead of the NXT Womens Championship match on Friday – Bayley vs Asuka.

Sami Zayn is backstage and says it feels great he finally has his chance to get his hands on Kevin Owens at WrestleMania, but he’s not taking his eye off Nakamura. He talks about how first impressions are important, and how he made his against Cesaro a few years ago. Zayn isn’t going to let Nakamura come in and outshine his legacy. NXT Takeover: Dallas will be the biggest NXT show so far.

It’s Main Event time now. The number one contender for the NXT Championship will be going up against Bull Dempsey.

The commentators say how this is this the Bull Dempsey of old that we are seeing tonight. Dempsey takes it right to Joe but he quickly turns the tables and lays into him in the corner. Enziguri in the corner from Joe. Joe hits an STO and locks in the Coquina Clutch for the win.

William Regal is also out and warns Joe not to do any more but Joe locks in the clutch once more. The fans chant for ‘Finn’ and out he comes and takes out Joe. Balor dropkicks Joe out of the ring and the two are brawling outside of the ring. Balor is getting the most offence in and drives Joe through a barricade on the outside. Balor continues to take it to Joe. Joe then throws Balor right over the announce table they were brawling in front of and he takes out Tom Phillips and Corey Graves. Balor stands on the announce table and runs across it, jumping onto Joe. They continue to brawl with the referees having no joy in keeping them apart. Joe is finally escorted away as Balor looks on to end the show.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
