The NXT Cruiserweight Championship unification match between Champion Jordan Devlin and Interim Champion Santos Escobar kicked off the main card for the second night of WWE NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.
They started the match by exchanging punches and then some standard pro wrestling. Minutes into the match, Devlin hit an impressive springboard on Escobar outside the ring. At this point, Devlin brought the ladder into the game and ultimately a second ladder.
From that point on, they did a lot of ladder points, including Devlin falling off the ladder and hitting a DDT on Escobar. Shortly after, Escobar took a running dive into the ropes which knocked Devlin down a ladder that stood at ringside.
Late in the match, Devlin hit a moonsault standing on Escobar from the top of the ladder in the ring. Devlin went for the title but Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza pulled him out and attacked him outside the ring. It was legal because there is no DQ in a ladder match. This allowed Escobar to climb but Devlin recovered in time so he could get up and throw a ladder at Escobar’s back. Devlin set up a second ladder next to Escobar in the ring and Devlin hit a Spanish fly to bring them both down the ladders.
The two men eventually climbed back to the top of a ladder, but Escobar pushed Devlin to send him crashing through a ladder. Santos went on to win the titles to become the undisputed champion.
