I'm going to go with Neville/Zayn, Zayn/Cesaro Bayley/Sasha and last nights Dunne/Bate. Too hard to pick one.

In no particular order:

Zayn vs Cesaro
Neville vs Zayn (NXT Takeover R-Evolution)
Sasha Banks vs Bayley (NXT Takeover Brooklyn)
Nakamura vs Zayn (NXT Takeover Dallas)
Revival vs #DIY (NXT Takeover Toronto)
Pete Dunne vs Tyler Bate

I'm NEVER choosing a favourite

Top 5, in no real order:

1. Sami Zayn vs Shinsuke Nakamura - TO Dallas

2. Pete Dunne vs Tyler Bate - TO Chicago

3. #DIY vs The Revival - 2/3 Falls, TO Toronto

4. Sasha Banks vs Bayley - TO Brooklyn I

5. Neville vs Sami Zayn - TO Re-Evolution

HM: #DIY vs The Revival - TO Brooklyn II


*To answer the question, I'm gonna go with Bate vs Dunne. It was phenomenal in a way the others weren't, to me anyway. Just two guys without a "name" in the company, goin after each other with reckless abandon.

Impossible to pick just one imo

If I had to I would probabaly go with Sasha/Bayley but Zayn/Cesaro ( the 2 out of 3 falls and NXT arrival match), Zayn/Neville, Zayn/Nak and Revival/DIY (again both Takeover matches) all are great shouts to the crown.

Neville vs Zayn for me, rewatched it somewhat recently and went the full 5 for it. Definitely one of my all time favorites.
Now that I think of it I voted for that one. It was on another level

Bate v Dunne

I'm not saying this just because it's fresh in the memory or because I know these guys and have long championed them, especially Dunne who is an absolute professional and much wiser in putting together a match than guys twice his age but because it was an electric back and forth between two guys who knew how to implement solid "pro wrestling" moves with the diving stuff that's become so popular over the last 15 years.

That is how you make a match relevant.

In no order my top 3 would be:

1. Zayn vs. Neville
2. Sasha vs. Bayley
3. DIY vs. The Revival

All 3 were amazing matches and all 3 had a great emotional hook to them and all 3 had a satisfying conclusion.

Sometimes greatest means more than just what I'd objectively rate a match if I just happened to pop it in. Lasting impact on the business and opening future doors is a far bigger deal to me. With that being said, my answer is Sasha vs Bayley Brooklyn. It was probably the first time that a women's match was truly considered as a MOTY when voting against the men. When the history books are written years from now NXT's greatest accomplishment will be what it did for women's wrestling. I'm actually really happy to see Nattie vs Charlotte on the poll, too.

Zayn vs. Neville is still my favorite because it had the most outrageous ringwork for the time, the build to Sami Zayn's victory was excellent and Neville showed edge that we now see in the Cruiserweight Division. DIY/Revival/AOP nails a close second for me and as of last night, Tyler Bate vs. Pete Dunne at least crack the top 10 best NXT matches of all time.

Special shoutout to Sasha vs. Bayley for killing it for the Women's side.

Zayn vs Cesaro is probably the most important match in NXT history IMO as it really got people talking about NXT, but I have to go with Zayn vs Neville the match was incredible and the build was great. Banks vs Bayley in BKLN and Revival vs DIY are right up there as well. Dunne vs Bate was top notch, don't get me wrong, but where I think it loses in comparision to the others is the build and emotions around it. I think Dunne vs Bate is more comparable to Zayn vs Cesaro in stand out ring work of lesser knowns that made you sit up and take notice and really draw you in on ringwork alone. Nak vs Zayn was DAMN good as well - and first time seeing Nak's epic entrance.

Sami Zayn vs Nakamura. It was pure magic and reminded me why I love wrestling so much. A true masterpiece.
