Andrade "Cien" Almas vs. Tye Dillinger
The crowd is popping for Mr. "Perfect 10" as Almas makes his NXT debut.
Lots of impressive mat wrestling to start off, with both men displaying incredible athleticism. Andrade shows off his high flying moves, teasing Dillinger but getting caught with a superkick to the face in the corner. Cien with some flashy moves finishes off Dillinger with running knees in the corner. It was a solid debut for Cien and an impressive outing by Dillinger that got the crowd going.
Match Rating: 6/10
Winner: Andrade "Cien" Almas
