TakeOver Results: NXT North American Championship

Published

on

While the crowd was still buzzing over the appearance of Matt Riddle (check that out here), it was time for our next title match at NXT TakeOver: Brooklyn IV.

After Roderick Strong and Kyle O’Reilly successfully retained the NXT Tag Team Titles in the opening contest (read about that here), Adam Cole looked to keep another piece of gold in The Undisputed Era as Ricochet challenged for the NXT North American Championship. Cole looked to keep the pace slow to begin, grounding the high-flyer with a series of grapples and holds. ‘The One And Only’ showed he was more than just an aerial artist though, saving his gravity defying tactics before pulling them out to keep Cole off-balance.

Ricochet finally got caught however, looking for a springboard moonsault and getting clocked with a superkick in mid-air. Cole would follow with a suplex into a neckbreaker that shockingly didn’t put ‘The One And Only’ away and from that point on, the match was very back-and-forth with both guys hitting big maneuvers. Cole would attempt the running knee to polish him off, but got caught himself and the challenger ascended to the top turnbuckle for the 630 Splash. The champion wisely would roll to the apron thinking he was safe, but instead got dumped to the floor by a leaping hurricanrana.

After tossing Cole back inside, ‘The One And Only’ would go back upstairs and score with the 630 Splash to procure the championship.

Dean Malenko Reportedly Quits WWE

Favorite of many sadly departs WWE…

Published

on

Strong sources suggest Dean Malenko has left WWE after 8 years behind the scenes as a producer.

According to Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated, Dean Malenko has left WWE after 8 years with the company. The report doesn’t share any details, but noted that he has been responsible for many of the tag team matches. This is is the third high profile departure of a long-term backstage personality, with Arn Anderson and Road Dogg Jesse James both leaving in recent months.

Greg DeMarco’s Take

Obviously, we here at The Chairshot are bummed. Dean Malenko is one of my all time favorites, as he was one hell of an in-ring technician known for having “ice water” running through his veins. He brought a sense of realism to his matches, and that made up for any lack of size and charisma.

Also, hearing that he was responsible for producing the tag team matches has be double bummed. While it wasn’t a primary focus of the company, when given time their tag team division always kicks ass. No better time than now to hop on the #SaveTagTeamWrestling train!
