NXT's Kushida and Breezango Beat The Imperium But Walter Delivers a Knockout

Last week we saw Walter and the group known as The Imperium make their NXT debuts, and it didn't take them long to make an impression on the roster. Not only would they get into a full-on brawl by the show's end with the entire locker room, but early on in the show they were challenged by Kushida, and tonight we learned he brought along Breezango for a match against the powerful group. By the end of the match, Kushida and his new teammates came out the victors.

It definitely surprised Imperium that Breezango (made up of Fandango and Tyler Breeze) was Kushida's partners, but they quickly tried to assert themselves in the ring. Luckily Kushida's new partners were up to the task and had his back throughout the match.

Later in the match Breeze would suffer a great deal of punishment, even taking double kicks in a pseudo tree of woe. Eventually, he was able to make the tag, and Kushida and the crew pulled out the win.

Unfortunately, the victory didn't last long, as Walter then came out and knocked Kushida off his rocker, leaving him stunned on the ramp.
