Top 5 matches over SummerSlam and NXT Takeover 2015

SummerSlam and NXT Takeover invaded Brooklyn this past weekend, and while a review of both would be pretty exhautive, I've decided to instead give you a run down of my top five matches. 
5. Jushin Thunder Liger vs Tyler Breeze - This match was the first time Jushin has ever performed in a WWE ring. Going up against Breeze, these two perfectly complemented each other, with Jushin copying the cockiness of Breeze, even at one stage grabbing Breeze's selfie stick to get some snaps. The moves were solid and if anything this match needed to be a bit longer, but for the time they had they told a good story, with Jushin picking up the win after the Liger bomb for the pin.
4. Kevin Owens vs Cesaro - These two men are probably my favourite wrestlers at the moment, both can do things which makes you question how they can do these things: Cesaro being the powerhouse he is, and Owens with his agility and ability to do springboard moonsaults and flipping leg drops. These two should be fighting for titles and it won't be long till they are with matches like this. Owens won the match after hitting the pop up powerbomb.
3. Kevin Owens vs Finn Balor for the NXT Championship in a ladder match - Owens re-match against the demon Finn was awesome, with both men hitting huge moves and leaving everything in the ring. Some of the best spots were Finn getting power bombed off of the ladder, then getting super kicked two times in a row by Owens when he refused to stay down, and then the coup de grace from all most the top of the ladder by Finn, who then reclaimed the title.
2. The New Day vs Lucha Dragons vs Los Matadores vs The Prime Time Players in a fatal four way for the WWE Tag Team Championship - This match had everything and The New Day are the best tag team in WWE today in my opinion - all three are just so damn entertaining, then in the ring with Titus O Neill in my opinion the most improved wrestler in the business today (I use to cringe when I saw Titus in a match before he got back with Darren Young now I look forward to his matches). Throw in the High Flyer's of the Dragons and The Matadors this match was awesome with some great spots from Big E trying to pin his partner Kofi to get the win/loss which would have won them the titles, if the pin wasn't broken up Titus taking out everyone and any move performed by Big E especially the spear to Young through the ropes. New Day got the win after Kofi pinned Fernando following the clash of the Titus by Titus who got kicked in the face by Kofi taking him out of the ring.
1. Sasha Banks vs Bayley for the NXT Woman's Championship - The women wrestlers in NXT are out of this world, stealing the show every time they perform. The moves they perform and the back and fourth between the two was immense. Bayley showed she can be as physical as anyone, and Sasha played up the role of heel by focusing on Bayley's hand through out. This match also had some great mat work with the Banks statement being reversed into a Banks statement by Bayley. And the ending was awesome, with Bayley hitting a backwards hurricanrana from the top rope into the Bayley to belly for the pin. After the match Charlotte and Becky came to the ring to congratulate both women, showing the respect these four women have for each other. As far as I'm concerned, the sooner these four are in the main roster fighting for the title the better for the Woman's Division in wrestling in general.

So there you go guys and girls my top five matches of the weekend. What matches do you think should have made the list? Let us know in the comments.
