As Balor reveals a smile at Nakamura’s popularity, we head to break before the bell rings. This show has done a fantastic job of making this feel like a huge match.

 

A “this is awesome” chant breaks out as we return. The lights lower and we get full blown ring announcements for both competitors.

 

Balor and Nakamura trade lockups as they feel each other out early. Nakamura rests his head on Balor. Finn doesn’t take it lightly and does “too sweet” right in Shinsuke’s face. Lots of stiff kicks and strikes from both men as the pace remains methodical to this point. We head to break.

Nakamura delivers the patented knee lift to Balor for a two. Balor hits a shot that sends Nakamura to the outside. Balor sends a swift kick to Nakamura’s face as we head to break.

 

We return with Balor delivering a double stomp for a two count. Balor applies another submission to Nakamura’s left leg but reverses. Nakamura sneaks into an arm bar and then a triangle choke! Balor gets his leg to the rope to break the hold. Nakamura gets in a flurry of strikes to weaken Balor. Balor recovers and does a reverse version of his “1916” for a 2! Nakamura regains control and lines up the “kinshasa” but Balor counters with a double stomp. The crowd begins chanting “fight forever,” and well they should.

Nakamura delivers a big knee from the second rope. Nakamura lines up Balor and hits “Kinshasa”! One, two, and three! Nakamura defeats Finn Balor in the battle of NXT icons.
