Finn Balor took on Damian Priest in the second match of the night on WWE NXT TakeOver: In Your House at the Performance Center in Orlando, Florida.
Here are some notes written, in real-time during the match:
Balor got in the early offense with chops to the chest and stomps to the leg that sent Priest out of the ring. Priest got back on offense when the action moved back into the ring. Several minutes later, Priest was able to hit the Broken Arrow but Balor fought his way out of a pin attempt and then nailed a double stomp. They traded strong style punches and kicks and Balor hit the Pele Kick for a near fall.
Priest turned things around and hit a Razor’s Edge on Balor on the ring apron. This almost led to a pin but Balor was able to kick out. Moments later, Priest hit a couple of roundhouse kicks but Balor was able to recover and he hit a running drop kick into the corner and then followed up with an attempt to do the Coup de Grace but Priest caught him by the neck and he launched himself and Balor off the top rope. Balor was able to kick out of a pin attempt. Priest tried to hit the Razor’s Edge on Balor on the steps but Balor slipped out and then hit a forearm to Priest and that knocked Priest off the apron and onto steel steps that were set up earlier at ringside. Balor followed by a Coup de Grace on the back of Priest’s neck and then he hit another one and then pinned Priest.
After the match, Balor did the double point in Priest’s direction.
