PLAY BY PLAY

The Undisputed Era is here!

The NXT Tag Team Champions, Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong–who stands in for the injured Bobby Fish–and the inaugural NXT North American Champion, Adam Cole BAYBAY are back at Full Sail. If they weren’t cocky before, they are now that they’re one man and one title stronger. Cole takes to the mic while fans chant “Undisputed! Undisputed!” They relish in this moment, and all this gold. “This is exactly what happens when you back the Undisputed Era into a corner.” Since first coming here, the Undisputed Era has been held back by NXT to prevent something like this from happening, and yet here we are. Fish speaks, saying “It’s no secret.” WarGames threw them to the wolves, and New Orleans tried the same. “But what you fail to realize” is that the Undisputed Era has been one step ahead. Look no further than these four “dripping in NXT championship gold.”

Strong speaks and fans cheer. He knows everyone wants to know “Why, Roddy, Why?” Strong isn’t the kind to pat himself on the back, that’s what his friends are for. For once, Strong did something for himself. He made the best decision of his career! Sure he could’ve won the titles with Pete Dunne, but Dunne would’ve turned on Strong in the end. Dunne only cares about the WWE UK Championship. But not the Undisputed Era. They take bullets for each other, and in that triple threat tag, Strong had an epiphany: Roddy VS The World, but why fight alone? Now they fight together to take over NXT! Kyle speaks, “We are done being backed into a corner.” It doesn’t matter what management tries, they can’t be stopped! “This is the Era of the Undisputed”, and they’re leaving everyone else in the dust.

Cole speaks again to say they’ll all prove it. Cole will defend his title tonight against Oney Lorcan, “right freakin’ now.” And on his own! He won this title on his own, so he’ll defend it that way. Just like his NXT Tag Team Champions. Honestly, he doesn’t need help beating Lorcan. Cole asks the others to find a seat and a drink to watch Cole at work. Their time is now, they will forever #ShockTheSystem! Cole is confident as ever, but will it cost him against the Boston Brawler in a matter of minutes?

 

NXT North American Championship: Adam Cole VS Oney Lorcan!

While the inaugural champion has confidence to spare, the #Starkiller never backs down from a fight! Can Lorcan shock Cole by taking that belt from him in his first title defense?

Fans duel between Cole and Lorcan. The bell rings and the two circle. Cole’s ribs are still heavily taped from TakeOver: New Orleans. He ties up with Lorcan, and moves to an arm wrench. Fans sing for “Oney~ Oney Oney Oney~” while he reverses and gets the waistlock. Cole hurries to ropes, and Lorcan lets go, so Cole kicks him low and puts him in a headlock. Lorcan powers out but Cole shoulders him down. The ribs slow Cole down but he still runs. Things speed up and Lorcan catches Cole into an abdominal stretch. Cole gets another ropebreak, then gets out of the ring. Fans applaud while Cole walks it off. The ref begins a count and Lorcan waits. Cole rolls into the ring, only to roll right back out.

Lorcan pursues him this time, and sees Cole’s ambush coming. Lorcan shoulders into Cole’s bad ribs, then drags Cole over. He wants to suplex Cole out but Cole resists for good reason. Cole enziguris Lorcan down! Lorcan gets to a corner, and Cole stomps a mudhole into him. Cole backs off at the ref’s count of 3, but Lorcan is still swinging. Cole kicks him down then hammers away. Fans cheer and jeer while Cole snapmares Lorcan. Cole digs his knee into Lorcan’s back while putting on a chinlock. Fans rally and Lorcan feeds off that energy. Lorcan works his way up and out, hitting those bad ribs with body shots. Cole still gets Lorcan up in a fireman’s carry, and hits the ushigoroshi!

Cole doesn’t cover, his ribs bother him too much. He instead catches his breath in a corner while fans cheer hm on. Lorcan stirs and Cole comes back. Lorcan throws body shots, Cole hits back, but Lorcan stands up to give European Uppercuts and chops. He whips Cole to the ropes and catches those bad ribs with a kitchen sink knee. Cole collapses but Lorcan fires up. Lorcan runs for a big EuroUpper, then the running Blockbuster!

Cover, TWO! But Lorcan fires up more while Cole gasps for air. Fans duel while Cole gets to ropes. Lorcan comes up behind and puts him in the waistlock, but Cole holds the ropes. Cole standind switches and shoves Lorcan, but Lorcan comes back with a EuroUpper on the rebound! He keeps going, but Cole is ready with the bicycle boot. Cole then goes to suplex Lorcan, but Lorcan suplexes him first, and hangs him up on the ropes. Cole tumbles to the floor, and fans rally for him. Lorcan climbs up and takes aim, but Kyle returns, a medic in tow!

Strong is also there, and Kyle throws up the X. With the referee focused on Cole and Kyle, Strong drags Lorcan out of the ring, for an apron back suplex!

He puts Lorcan in the ring, then “checks” on Cole, who is now “okay.” Cole sees Lorcan is vulnerable, Last Shot shining wizard!

Cover, Cole wins!

Winner: Cole, by pinfall; still North American Champion

So much for not needing the Undisputed Era’s help in retaining. Cole clutches his title, while Strong and Kyle stomp Lorcan out! The referee rings the bell more and more, but that doesn’t stop them from beating down poor Lorcan. But Danny Burch comes out to rescue his tag team partner!

Burch throws hands on Strong and O’Reilly, and even headbutts. But one SUPERKICK from Cole stops that! He then has Strong and O’Reilly finish off Lorcan and Burch, Strong gives Lorcan the knee strike while Kyle gives Burch the Ax ‘n’ Smash! Fans are a mix of cheers and jeers, but the Undisputed Era only care about having the titles. Will anyone be able to stop them from taking over all of NXT?

 

Heavy Machinery VS Tino Sabbatelli & Riddick Moss!

Tucker Knight & Otis Dozovic were having their tiebreaker tag team match with the Blue Chip Boys a few weeks ago, up until NXT’s newest tag team, The War Raiders, ran all four of these men over. The rubber is given a second chance, can one of these teams finally settle the score?

Tucker starts against Moss at the bell. They tie up, Tucker gets a headlock but Moss powers out. Tucker runs Moss over with a shoulder, Tino comes but Tucker ducks under for Otis to bulldoze Tino down. Tino and Moss both swing on Otis and Tucker, but Heavy Machinery ducks to then run them over with shoulders in stereo! Heavy Machinery flexes but the Blue Chip Boys make this a brawl. Otis throws Tino out while Tucker knees Moss. Tucker whips Moss and throws him with a back drop! He scoops Moss and tags in Otis, and Otis runs to the ropes. Tino returns with a leaping crossbody, but Otis catches him with ease! Tucker and Otis then ram Moss and Tino back against back, then stand on them while posing.

The referee counts, and they step off while the fans chant “Steaks and Weights! Steaks and Weights!” Tucker goes back to the corner while Otis ducks Moss’ forearm to give forearms of his own. Otis whips Moss but Moss holds ropes to club Otis. It only riles Otis up, and Otis throws haymakers. Tino returns only to get punched down, but Moss lifts Otis for a big back suplex! Moss glares at Otis as he throws right hands of his own. The referee warns Moss, but Moss brings Otis up. Tino tags in and Moss whips him in for the big forearm smash. Moss adds the shoulder tackle, Tino covers, TWO. Fans chant “Tino Sucks! Tino Sucks!” but Tino brushes it off to throw body shots on Otis.

Tag to Moss for another whip, but Otis puts Tino on the apron. Otis side steps Moss, so that shoulder tackle sends Tino flying into barriers! Otis tags in Tucker and Tucker rallies on Moss. Tucker even hits Moss with a dropkick! Tucker throws hands then whips Moss to a corner, only to run into Moss’ boot. Moss crawls towards Tino, but Tino leaves Moss high and dry!?

Moss can’t believe Tino is ditching him! But Tucker still hits Moss with a corner splash and trapped arm overhead suplex. Tucker gives Moss another corner splash and Otis tags in. Otis picks up Moss and Tucker runs, for the Compacter!

Cover, Heavy Machinery wins!

Winners: Heavy Machinery (Tucker & Otis), Otis pinning

One way or another, this rivalry ends. Tino dumped Moss but Heavy Machinery crushed him. Will this lead to big things for the big powerhouse duo? And will Moss get payback on the selfish Sabbatelli?

Heavy Machinery speaks.

Tucker calls out the War Raiders! “You think you can attack us from behind and make a name for yourselves?” Heavy Machinery is going to raid every buffet to take all the steaks, and raid all the gyms to lift all the weights. Fans agree, chanting “Steaks and Weights!” But Tucker & Otis want to know if War Raiders are man enough to stand face to face with them. Heavy Machinery is coming for war! Will Hanson & Rowe be ready to wage war with these bulldozers?

 

The Queen of Spades reigns with an iron fist.

The problem is, it only means the rest of the NXT Women’s Division looks to rebel against her. SAnitY’s Nikki Cross still wants the NXT Women’s Championship by any means necessary, while Aliyah has nothing nice to say about Shayna Baszler. If only she had a famous friend to ride the coattails of. The Pirate Princess is even with Shayna at 1-1, which means she knows the key to defeating. “It’s a secret.”

Dakota Kai is interviewed in regards to Shayna Baszler.

The Captain of Team Kick already knows how cruel Shayna can be, given her arm injury. And when it comes to the most recent incident involving the sadistic submission sorceress, Dakota does not feel comfortable talking about it. She’d rather just forget about it. And to make matters worse, Bully Baszler walks in.

The NXT Women’s Champion dares Dakota to look her in the eye. And when Dakota does, Baszler mocks Dakota’s sacrifices to live the dream. Because the reality is, a women’s division run by Shayna is Dakota’s nightmare. Baszler leaves, and Dakota is still shaken. Can Dakota, or anyone, work up the courage to put Shayna in her place?

 

Three more women of NXT speak up against Shayna Baszler.

Lacey Evans has been through worse than “a bully with a bad attitude.” She vows to be the legitimate role model that is the face of NXT. Vanessa Borne thinks she can beat Shayna, and when she gets the chance, she’ll get the title. Mrs. Wrestling, Candice LeRae, has what Shayna doesn’t have: heart. Shayna may have counters for submissions, but she doesn’t have a counter for Candice. Who will be the first woman to go toe to toe with the Queen of Spades for the title?

 

NXT Championship: Aleister Black VS Johnny Gargano!

The saying goes, “Ask and you shall receive.” Johnny Freakin’ Wrestling asked for another chance at the title, and the Dutch Destroyer honored his request. At the same time, Gargano is the only man to pin Aleister, albeit in a Fatal 4 Way. Can Gargano do the same now that it’s 1v1? Or will he simply #FadeToBlack?

But before the champion appears, the Psycho Killer does! And he ambushes Gargano all over again!

Tommaso Ciampa hammers away on Gargano at the ramp! He won’t let go of the grudge between him and his former friend! He drags Gargano from the ramp and throws him into the announce desk! Mauro, Percy and Nigel clear out as Ciampa storms over. Ciampa clears the top of the desk, then drags Gargano atop it. He clubs away on Gargano before climbing up to join him. He drags Gargano up, and shouts, “You think I’m done?!” Ciampa vows Gargano will never be rid of him! Ciampa lifts Gargano, preparing a reverse neckbreaker, but Gargano fights out! Gargano fights back, and SUPERKICKS Ciampa! Ciampa sits down, then hurries away from the desk. But that doesn’t stop Gargano, he LEAPS at Ciampa!

Gargano topples Ciampa and then hammers away with both hands. Fans cheer for “Johnny Wrestling!” as he bounces Ciampa’s head off the ramp. Ciampa shoves Gargano away but Gargano rushes right back. Gargano throws more haymakers on Ciampa, but Ciampa stops him with a low blow kick! Ciampa checks his eye while Gargano gasps for air. Ciampa shoves Gargano away, but the fans troll Ciampa with “You Tapped Out! You Tapped Out!” He doesn’t care, he has Gargano vulnerable on stage. Ciampa takes aim, and uses the Psycho Knee to ram Gargano’s head into the LED wall!

Referees check on Gargano while telling Ciampa to leave. Ciampa takes his time standing up, and walks towards the back, only to go back for more! He drags Gargano up, and jumps off the stage with an Air Raid!!

Both Ciampa and Gargano crash into the spare tables on the side, covered in spare production equipment! Ciampa doesn’t care that his head hurts, so long as as he leaves Gargano in the wreckage. He finally leaves Gargano, and Candice comes out to check on her husband. Referees call for medics while Ciampa stares down from the stage. Fans boo and jeer the Psycho Killer while medics carefully pull Gargano from the debris. They also chant “Johnny Wrestling!” in support, but the damage is done. Gargano groans in pain while the medics swiftly but carefully put him on the backboard. Candice is there to comfort and calm Gargano while the medics put the neck brace on him. They strap Gargano into the board and bring the stretcher over.

The medics carefully lift Gargano up and set him on, fans applauding the fact Gargano is still conscious and breathing. Candice holds Gargano’s hand while the stretcher is wheeled to the back. They make it backstage and Candice tells Gargano to relax. Gargano won’t stop fidgeting as he passes by the other NXT superstars. Kassius Ohno also assures Gargano he’ll be okay as the stretcher is turned around to go head first. Aleister Black watches the stretcher be loaded into the ambulance.

Candice rides with Gargano in the back. The ambulance pulls out of Full Sail, and Ciampa, atop a production truck, waves good-bye. Has the Psycho Killer finally gotten rid of Gargano for good?

Aleister Black still goes to the ring.

The Embodiment of the End won’t be having an NXT Championship match with Johnny Wrestling tonight, but he grabs a mic to speak. “Tommaso Ciampa, by eliminating my competition–” But wait! The champion is interrupted by SAnitY!

Eric Young leads Alexander Wolfe and Killian Dain down to the ring, where they flank Aleister on two sides. Eric speaks, saying that “Johnny Gargano provided hope. Chaos took away that hope tonight.” And out of the chaos, SAnitY will find greatness. So then SAnitY is looking for the title? Yes? “Then let’s do this!” Fans like the sound of that!

Aleister Black VS Eric Young w/ SAnitY!

The bell rings and this is official, but not for the title. Will the erratic Eric capitalize on a chaotic situation? Or will Aleister take his frustrations towards Ciampa out on him?

Aleister and Eric circle, then tie up. Eric wrenches the arm and brings Aleister to his knees. Aleister rolls and reverses the wristlock, then ducks the clothesline to waistlock and roll Eric to the mat. Eric stands up and grabs ropes for the break. Eric muddies the break with a back elbow, then picks the leg to go after Aleister’s head and shoulder. Aleister reaches and flails while fans rally for him. Aleister stands up and rolls Eric, ONE, and Aleister runs, only to run into Eric’s back elbow! Eric covers, ONE, so he stomps and drops elbows on the champ. Cover again, TWO, but Eric runs, only to run into Aleister’s sleeper hold! Eric powers out and shoves Aleister, but Aleister stops his momentum to sweep Eric’s legs!

Eric rolls out of the ring but Aleister runs, only to springboard back for the cross leg landing. Fans applaud while Eric grins. SAnitY regroups, and a ring count begins. Eric returns to the ring, then suddenly kicks at Aleister, but Aleister leans back to kip-up! Aleister arm-drags Eric, then puts him in an armlock. Eric endures as Aleister pulls on the shoulder. Eric stands up and pushes Aleister to ropes to then ram in a shoulder and throw forearms. He lifts Aleister but Aleister slips, only for Eric to hit him with another back elbow. Eric throws a punch but Aleister traps that arm, to then ram in a knee into Eric’s ribs. Aleister gives more strikes, topping it off with the knee strike!

Fans applaud as Aleister hoists Eric to the top rope. Big Damo distracts the ref while Wolfe rushes Aleister, but Aleister elbows him away. However, this gives Eric the opening to grab Aleister for the hangman’s dragon sleeper!

The referee catches this, and Eric lets go at the count of 4. Eric then jumps to drop an ax handle on Aleister. Cover, TWO! Eric double ax handles away on Aleister then covers again, TWO! Fans rally for Aleister while Eric drags him up, for the stiff neckbreaker. Cover, TWO, and now Eric grows frustrated. He drags Aleister up for a chinbar, but fans build to a rally. Aleister fights up and out, but runs into a back drop! Cover, TWO, but Eric puts Aleister right into a chinlock clutch. He stretches Aleister back while he fans rally again. Aleister stands up again but Eric clubs him back down. Eric runs, but into Aleister’s boot! Aleister runs, Eric back drops him but Aleister sunset flips to a cover, TWO! Eric clobbers Aleister with a haymaker! But Aleister rebounds off the ropes for the bicycle knee!

Both men go down but the fans applaud. The fans build back to a rally while SAnitY is angry and concerned. Eric and Aleister stir as a ten count begins. It reaches 5 before either man stands. Eric walks over but Aleister fires off punches first. Aleister bobs and weaves, and counters with several kicks to then rally with elbows. Aleister sweeps the legs, runs to strike with another knee! The champion is all fired up, and runs corner to corner to hit Eric with a forearm smash. He whips Eric out and back into the corner, to then springboard for the Quebrada!

Cover, TWO! Aleister won’t slow down, though. He brings Eric up but Eric powers him to a corner. Eric runs back in but Aleister goes up and over, then runs to roll off Eric’s back. Aleister tilt-o-whirls to catch Eric in a combination crucifix-octopus stretch!

Eric endures the unique hold, and pops out to hoist Aleister up for a Death Valley Driver!

Cover, TWO! And Eric can’t believe it! He prepares his elbow and climbs up top. Aleister stirs, and revives to club Eric. Eric hits back but Aleister climbs up to brawl with him. Eric punches Aleister off, but Aleister ducks under the missile dropkick. Aleister then side steps Eric to send him into the corner, but Eric tumbles to the apron. Eric sees Aleister coming and shoulders back in. He then slides under and runs back over, into BLACK MASS!!

Cover, Aleister wins!

Winner: Aleister, by pinfall

But the flood gates open as Wolfe & Dain rush the ring! Aleister ducks Wolfe to give him Black Mass! Big Damo scoops Aleister, but Aleister slips out, for a third Black Mass! The Dutch Destroyer pulls off a hat trick to wreck the wild trio! It wasn’t the match he wanted, but Aleister still stands tall. Will Aleister get revenge on Ciampa for what he did to Gargano? Will Gargano be able to return to do it himself? Or will Mr. Blackheart leave them both down and out to finally have his moment?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A great episode of NXT and again, almost a full hour. The Undisputed Era gives a great opening promo, each of them on point with their lines. Oddly enough, Strong had a point about Pete Dunne tending to be a backstabber. That and his frustrations over losing seem to be why he turned. The swerve on Cole not wanting/needing help from the others was actually pretty smart, too. Cole knows his ribs are still banged up, and did look to be in trouble, so in kayfabe, Kyle and Strong were likely waiting for the first moment Cole ended up outside of the ring. Dunne returns next week to take on Strong as he promised, this could lead to another WWE UK Championship match to at least tease the possibility the Undisputed Era members all having titles.

The tiebreaker of Heavy Machinery VS Sabbatelli & Moss was pretty good as a match, and better as setting up story. Tucker & Otis want revenge on Hanson & Rowe, that’ll be a fun match with all four big men barreling into each other. Moss and Tino can themselves move into a program, and I’d imagine with Tino being the traitor (and with fans always chanting “Tino Sucks!”) Moss makes the turn to Face. Depending on who Moss becomes without Tino, he could rise up in the ranks and–after a lot of big names clear out–be a contender for the North American Championship.

The booking of the NXT Women’s Division has been brilliant. Shayna plays the bully so well, and even Dakota plays scared victim well. The promos from the other women were great, but honestly, of the six that spoke, only Nikki Cross or Kairi Sane have even been booked as challenges for Shayna. Candice LeRae is still new to being on NXT TV, so she can make a case for herself, but Lacey, Vanessa and Aliyah haven’t really gained much ground in the Division. Then the entire final segment was great, even with Ciampa demolishing Gargano. This extends their story probably to the next TakeOver, for an even more savage blow-off that brings them both to the main roster. Aleister gives SAnitY their good-bye moment, as well as a great match with Eric Young. Aleister VS Ciampa makes for a great feud while Gargano “recovers”, maybe even for the title.

My Score: 8.5/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 6.30.2022

The Go Home to Against All Odds with the main event of Battle of the Futures Redux! TNA vibes and hype in the Asylum!

Published

on

Against All Odds is tomorrow, and the one thing IMPACT has excelled with are the quick turnaround angles. Plus we also HOPEFULLY get a real finish to the Battle of the Futures 2022 edition. Frankie Kazarian and Chris Sabin have a main event that could definitely be something special.

Ratings:

  • Fatal 4 Way: Steve Maclin vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Chris Bey: Trey wins via Meteora – ***
  • Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw: Gisele wins via Knee Strike – ** ¼
  • Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace: Jordynne wins via Muscle Buster – **
  • IMPACT Tag Team Championship: The Good Brothers (c) w/James Storm vs Vincent & PCO w/ Honor No More: Karl retains via Roll Up – ** ½
  • Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne: Ace wins via The Fold – ** ¾
  • Battle of the Futures Redux: Frankie Kazarian vs Chris Sabin w/Alex Shelley: Sabin wins via Cradle Shock – *****

 

Results:

Fatal 4 Way: Steve Maclin vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Chris Bey

Early on the smaller men gang up on Maclin, which of course is the smart thing to do. Trey and Bey trade a few shots, Laredo tries to interject himself but Maclin comes back in and starts taking over. Wipes out most of the guys then they start trickling in for pinfall saves and each guy chopping at the bigger man. Trey does however go for a John Woo, misses and Tree of Woes himself to set up for Maclin’s Caught in the Crosshairs corner spear.

Action continues to be pretty fluid, Trey takes out Maclin, Bey looks for an Asai Moonsault, but turns it into the 5 Hole Dive that MCMG do when Laredo Kid dives through Bey’s legs. Then Bey hits the Asai Moonsault and Bey brings Laredo into the ring and tries to find a winning angle. Pop Up Cutter from Bey, but Trey saves it. A little back and forth, Trey goes to the top, misses the Meteora, but lands on his feet and manages a Running Meteora for the pinfall victory.

Trey beat Speedball before Slammiversary, so Speedball has some payback in his mind.

Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw

Madison Rayne and Tenille Dashwood are at the commentary desk for this match since Gisele did offer to fill in for an injured Madison for the Knockouts Tag rematch.

Rosemary controls Gisele early and then bends her backwards and bites her forehead. Gisele almost starts taking back over, but then Rosemary gets out of a headlock the Crazzy Steve way. Rosemary takes some control early until Gisele powders and tries to find a way back into the match. Commercial break brings us to Gisele taking Rosemary’s head off with a Lariat.

Now Gisele is in control, throws Rosemary into a corner and starts pandering for a photo op and posturing to The Influence. Gisele strings together a lot of corner attacks, whips her into the corner again and lays her out with a Flying European Uppercut. Gisele tries to hit the knee in the back of the head, but Rosemary moves and starts her comeback. Big Suplex from the corner and Rosemary keeps her down for 2. Rosemary is in control until Gisele hits and Oscutter out of nowhere for 2. Reverse DDT from Rosemary for another near fall and then The Influence is on the move. They ambush Taya, Rosemary tries to go for her Spear anyway and Shaw kills Rosemary with a great Knee Strike. Rosemary is out, Gisele wins.

A small beat down, and then The Influence pause in the ring for a little, before posing with Gisele and seemingly giving their mark of approval on her being in The Influence now.

Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace

Savannah bulldozes Jordynne into the corner, but the power game is pretty even here. Savannah has some height, but Jordynne is quicker. Jordynne manages to turn the tables on Savannah, up and over in the corner and whips her into the ropes while setting up behind her causing Evans to trip and fall. Savannah powders, Jordynne tries to break up the discussion, but after a quick flurry, Savannah hits an Apron Chokeslam and takes over.

After some back and forth, Jordynne takes back over and then Muscle Buster on Savannah Evans and its over!

IMPACT Tag Team Championship: The Good Brothers (c) w/James Storm vs Vincent & PCO w/ Honor No More

Karl and Vincent start things off, and corner to corner we see the Machine Gun in control, but a thumb to the eyes and quick strike give Vincent the chance to tag in PCO. French Canadian Frankenstein starts beating on Karl, throws him into the ropes, Vincent kicks him and it just pisses off Karl. But Karl getting distracted gives PCO the ambush chance and Karl is just getting rocked. Vincent tagged back in, quick strikes including a corner Facewash with the elbow, sliding Flatliner and PCO is back in.

PCO goes Splash into dropping DDT before hitting the middle rope Guillotine Leg Drop. LG has gotten no action while Karl is getting killed. Deanimator set up looks to take out Karl even further, and it hits! Vincent tags in, and finally Anderson Spinebuster gets LG a hot tag. Big Boot takes out PCO on the apron, Superkick and flying Big Man flattens Vincent, tag to Karl, Magic Killer set up…but PCO with the save. Satellite Russian Leg Sweep from Vincent, RedRUM misses and Karl scoops the Small Package for the win.

Immediately Honor No More attacks. Chris Harris slides in and Honor No More choose to jaw and tease him instead of attacking immediately. HEATH’s music hits before they can attack Harris, and he comes loaded with pipes. Harris and Heath lay out Honor No More with pipes, Wake Up Call from Heath, Pump Kick, Gun Stun and then only Taven is left. Last Call Superkick sends Taven to sleep.

Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne

Zayne tries to start immediately, but Ace takes a page from the Jay White book and powders right away. Ace stays a step ahead until a nice Flipping Bodyscissors out of the corner keeps Ace rolling and eating some kicks. Ace tries a top corner move and Zayne flips into a Headscissors for the advantage before commercial. Coming back Ace is in control after driving Zayne into the post.

Ace and Zayne trade, we see Zayne finally get the best of the situations. Cinnamon Twist or Crunchwrap Supreme are hinted at, but Ace rolls away. Zayne tries to get Ace in position for his Taco Driver, but Ace has all the answers. Big kicks and strikes, Ace goes for the Outside/In Avalanche Headscissors, but Zayne mostly flips the through it, but eats a Triangle Kick for his attempted counter. The Fold – gets countered with a Sauce Trigger! Ace powders, Moonsauce to take out Bey and Ace, but Bey grabs his foot before he can get back in, Ace keeps the referee distracted…THE FOLD as soon as Zayne is back in the ring and Bullet Club wins!

Battle of the Futures Redux: Frankie Kazarian vs Chris Sabin w/ Alex Shelley

If this is as good as I anticipate…I may forget how to type. So fair warning if I get sucked in, this could be a short review.

We saw both men had a plan, Sabin went after Kaz’s legs early and often, where Kaz focused on the neck. There were great callbacks, classic moments, even the feint with the Flux Capacitor which is how Kaz won the original Battle of the Futures.

This was Brian Hebner’s final match, and hot damn was it a classic. Everything about this was great.

Overall Score: 9/10

Starting out hot with the X Division match, 2 solid Knockouts matches and a main event that could’ve easily been on any PPV over the last 20 years. This set the stage well for tomorrow’s Against All Odds and could’ve been one of the best Go Home episodes from any company in recent memory. Also it was really awesome getting the Raven vignette to hype the Clockwork Orange House of Fun.

My review of Against All Odds will be a little late since I had prior engagements because Fridays aren’t usually PPVs, but I’ll get to it on Saturday. Watch it live yourself, catch the run down Saturday, either way IMPACT is killin it with that TNA vibe. Maybe its time we go back to a certain 3 letters…a 6 sided ring, or hell, just announce Lethal Lockdown. Bring that back from the dead dammit!

Blair Davenport VS Angel Hayze!

NXT UK beware, it’s the return of the heir! The gothic gladiator is back after that freak accident during her NXT UK Women’s Championship match with Meiko Satomura. Will Blair prove that nothing will stop her from taking the throne this time? Or will Angel leave her in a haze in her first match back?

The bell rings and the two circle. Blair and Angel tie up, go around, and Blair puts Angel on the ropes. The ref counts but Blair lets off fast. Blair and Angel reset, tie up, and Blair shoves Angel down! Fans rally up as Angel and Blair reset again. They tie up, Angel gets around to waistlock, Blair arm-drags free and Angel flounders to a corner. Blair runs in but Angel goes up and over, TWO! Angel boots Blair’s punch away, sobats then runs, to SHOTGUN Blair down! Cover, ONE!! Fans rally, Angel drags Blair up and reels her in, but Blair fights the suplex. Blair powers up, wrenches out and WRINGS the arm!

NXT UK Media caught up with Sid Scala.

The Assistant General Manager returns to his office, and Kenny Williams is there waiting! Kenny says it’s about time Sid showed up! Kenny’s been working all night, as we can see by the conspiracy web taking over Sid’s office, and Kenny claims he has finally figured it out! Tiger Turan has to be none other than… Sid says Kenny needs to stop, this isn’t why Sid asked to meet with him. This is about next week, a match between Kenny and Tiger Turan! And just as Sid says that, Tiger steps in. Kenny says this is just who he was looking for. But here’s what will happen. Kenny will win, knock Turan out and take off his mask to reveal it’s Amir Jordan!

So right now, Tiger Turan can clean up this mess while Kenny prepares. Is the Scum of the Earth on to something? Is Tiger Turan obsessed with Kenny because it’s Amir Jordan, the man Kenny banished from NXT UK over a year ago? Or is he going to lose this match along with his mind?

 

Noam Dar & Sha Samuels enter the NXT UK Performance Center.

The Scottish Supernova isn’t sure why they’re here, but the East End Bookie/Butcher promises it is for good reason: they’re going to make some big money. Dar then sees the ring and the training session Mark Coffey is helping with. Dar & Sha taunt them and Mark walks over to ask, “What’s wrong? Run out of ways to cheat?” Dar says he never needs to cheat, and certainly not to beat Mark. Dar didn’t need to cheat to beat “Dog Man” Wolfgang, or to beat big brother Joe and run him out of town. Mark points out Dar only won because of his bookie at ringside. Mark guarantees that if Sha isn’t around, Mark wins the cup.

Sha says no way, Dar is the best ever! Mark says they can bet on it. Sha takes that bet! 100 to 1, Dar still beats Mark! Sha puts money on it quite literally, and says the market is open! Everyone else swarms Sha, wanting to put money on this, too! Dar looks worried with just how many want to join in. Are they betting all on Mark? Dar is a bit upset by that, but will he prove Sha right and take everyone, including Coffey, to the cleaners?

 

Emilia McKenzie VS Fallon Henley!

#SuplexMillie is still Meiko Satomura’s protégé, but she might be feeling the pressure as of late. The Final Boss demands the best out of her disciple, but will those expectations be met? Or will the Cowgirl rope herself a big win just like Briggs & Jensen did?

The bell rings and the two tie up. They go around, end up in a deadlock, but Millie shots around to waistlock. Fallon pries at the hold, standing switches, and SLAMS Millie down. Millie slips out to hammerlock and fans rally for Millie as she cranks the hold. Fallon fights to sit up, rolls out and has the wristlock. Millie slips through, wristlocks back, but Fallon pries at the hold. Fallon slips through, hammerlocks Millie now, but Millie works on the hold. Fallon rolls Millie up, TWO! Fans applaud the opening exchange as the two stare down. Fallon and Millie reset, tie up with knuckle locks, and they have a test of strength!

Millie wrenches the wrists, kicks an arm, rolls and trips Fallon to have a standing toehold! Fallon endures, uses her free leg to kick free, but Millie cartwheels through. Fans applaud again, and even Fallon offers a handshake. Millie accepts and fans cheer the sportsmanship, and the two tie up again. Millie powers Fallon back but Fallon turns it around to arm-drag Millie away. Fallon shoots in but Millie sits on the cover, ONE! Fallon sunset flips, ONE! Millie tries a jackknife but Fallon rolls through it, TWO! Millie has the sunset, TWO!! Fans fire up for that exchange and the two reset again.

Fans fire up as Millie survives! Fallon drags Millie up, fireman’s carries, but Millie slips off and shoves to then LARIAT! And again! Millie shoots around to get Fallon up for a BIG bag suplex! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and Millie snarls as she hauls Fallon up. Fallon fights the German Suplex, pops free to switch, but Millie elbows Fallon.

Winner: Fallon Henley, by pinfall

Millie showed her killer instinct, but maybe she let it get the better of her! Will this be the exact opposite of what Meiko wanted for Millie?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Oliver Carter.

They ask him if he’s been keeping in contact with Ashton Smith while he’s out with injury. Of course! Oliver has Ashton on speed dial. They are brothers, that’s never gonna change. But then Teoman and his Die Familie “brothers,” Rohan Raja and Charlie Dempsey slither in and say hi to “Oli.” They sit with him and they feel like this is deja vu. Oliver’s alone, no Ashton Smith, no titles. Oliver needs a family to watch out for him. It is a dangerous place out there. Join them! It’s in his best interest. They’ll let him think about it, and take their leave. Is there anything to think about? Or will the Hottest Superstar Under the Sun actually consider their invitation?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Sarray.

The Warrior of the Sun is about to get in a set of squats as they ask her how she feels after her NXT UK debut. Sarray says it was very good. She got a win over Nina Samuels, and she- “Aww~, look!” Xia and Eliza return to mock Sarray for simply training in the UK PC after her first win. It’s so cute. But has Eliza heard the good news? Sarray’s sticking around for a bit. Oh, is she? But then Meiko and Millie step up to back the bullies down. Eliza tells Sarray that she better just play by their rules, or they’ll be more than happy to teach Sarray a few things.

Meiko tells Eliza that she talks too much. If Eliza & Xia want a match with Meiko and Sarray, then Eliza & Xia will be the ones being taught a lesson. Millie seems a bit surprised Meiko didn’t choose her, while Xia & Eliza storm off, Xia complaining about who is teaching who lessons. But with that, Sarray finishes putting up the weights for Meiko to take a turn. Will Final Boss & Warrior of the Sun prove to the bullies the power of Joshi Strong Style?

 

Wolfgang VS Sha Samuels w/ Noam Dar!

The Last King of Scotland heard the East End Butcher talking some smack like he wouldn’t hear it. But since he did, it’s time for Sha to put his money where his mouth is! Will Wolfgang get a big win and cash in? Or will Sha find another way to weasel out another victory?

The bell rings and the two circle. Sha gets some last minute pointers from Dar. They say they can frustrate Wolfgang and get the edge. But then Dar needs to give Sha another pointer. The ref insists they get this started already, and Wolfgang rushes in. Sha dodges, then dodges again. Sha goes back to Dar for that last pointer but Wolfgang throws Sha out of the corner! Wolfgang fires off haymakers, then an arm-drag! Wolfgang keeps on the arm with a wristlock, then stands Sha up to RAM shoulders. And again! And then a straight arm lever and SLAM! Fans fire up and Wolfgang drags Sha up again to RAM shoulders again.

Wolfgang wrenches, and hits a straight arm suplex! Cover, ONE! Dar is upset but Wolfgang keeps on Sha’s arm. Sha ROCKS Wolfgang with his free arm, then bumps Wolfgang off buckles. Sha bumps Wolfgang off more buckles, then throws heavy back elbows. Sha runs in to SPLASH Wolfgang. Wolfgang shoves Sha away, runs in, but Sha sends Wolfgang into buckles! Fans boo but Dar wants to throw up the X. Sha grabs the bad arm for an ARMBAR DDT! Sha CLUBS the bad arm, uppercuts it, then hip drops on it! Wolfgang clutches that arm, tries to get it working, but Sha drops an elbow on it!

Sha clamps onto the arm, Wolfgang fights the cobra clutch and throws body shots. But Sha wrenches and WRINGS the bad arm! Dar offers a drink but Sha says no, he has to keep working. Sha throws down elbows into the bad arm, then stands on Wolfgang to say, “ON THE MONEY~!” Sha KICKS the bad leg, then shouts out “EAST~!” Sha stomps Wolfgang but fans chant, “You’re a Mug! You’re a Mug!” Dar says yeah, Wolfgang’s the mug! But that’s not who they mean. Sha RAMS Wolfgang into the buckles, stomps away on the bad arm, then runs in to stomp it again! The ref backs Sha off, and Dar SMACKS Wolfgang around with the papers!

Wolfgang gets mad and he CHOPS Sha! And CHOPS again! And counter punches! Wolfgang suplexes Sha, but Sha fights to get to the apron. Sha HOTSHOTS the bad arm! Wolfgang staggers away and Sha gets in to run and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Wolfgang is still in this, and Dar offers another drink. Sha says no, and he drops elbow after elbow on Wolfgang! Sha then goes up a corner, and leaps for a FLYING ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Wolfgang is still in this and fans rally up. Sha stalks Wolfgang, CLUBS him at the ropes, then pulls on the bad arm.

Dar fans Sha, but fans rally for Wolfgang. Wolfgang grabs at Sha on the apron, hauls him up the corner, but Sha throws body shots. Sha HOTSHOTS the bad arm again! Wolfgang is stuck up top and Sha ROCKS him with haymakers! Sha DECKS Wolfgang!

Sha climbs up again, for the FROG SPLASH onto knees! Wolfgang saves himself but both men are down and writhing. Fans rally up again and Wolfgang grits his teeth as he gets back up. Wolfgang rallies on Sha with the one good arm! Wolfgang whips Sha to then back drop him! Fans fire up, Sha gets to a corner and Wolfgang runs in to fire off forearms! Wolfgang howls and runs, to SPLASH again! Dar is up on the apron but Wolfgang BOOTS him down! Fans cheer and Wolfgang SLINGSHOTS to SPEAR!! Cover, Wolfgang wins!!

Winner: Wolfgang, by pinfall

Fans cheer as the Last King of Scotland stands tall! This Gallus Boy is on top, but will Mark Coffey be on top in two weeks after he gets one more shot at Dar and the Heritage Cup?

 

Trent Seven heads to the ring.

And what a strange thing, for all the fans to boo this Founding Father of NXT UK. He gets a mic and “thanks” us all for that reception. Seven heard the chant of “Why, Trent, Why?” Good question! He will use visual aids to explain just exactly why. The tron shows Trent giving Tyler Bate that truly underhanded low blow uppercut. Trent gets teary eyed as he says it is just beautiful. “It’s the best low blow ever. That’s what it is.” Just look at his positioning! A work of art, really. And more importantly, it represents a turning point. “That right there is the most important moment in British Sports.” Fans chant, “No it’s not! No it’s not!”

But he says yes it is, and we all know it is, “because it’s the moment that Trent Seven saved the industry.” Fans boo but Seven asks they listen. It is the truth “because this place was dead! This studio was a ghost town! And now look at you all! Now look at you all back! The largest crowd in NXT UK BT Sports history is here because Trent Seven is on top!” Fans boo more but Seven says, “It’s a fact. This is where I like to be. Right here. Right at the top, right in the middle, the CENTER of attention!” Fans chant, “We Want Tyler!” and Seven is annoyed. “Tyler Bate is done. Now I am the center of attention, and we were the center of attention as British Strong Style! And as Moustache Mountain.”

Seven goes on about how they were touring the world, selling out every arena, and promotors were begging them to even be on the shows. “Please~! We need you~!” Yes, they did. And that is why fans need to understand it isn’t Seven who changed, it’s Tyler who changed. Seven never lost the killer instinct, he never stopped doing what was needed to win, but it was Tyler who lost his nerve. That will to win is gone, because “it’s all that rubbish, sitting in a field, hugging a tree.” But Bate isn’t coming back, and we know he won’t because he won’t fight Seven! Fans chant, “Yes, He Will!” Seven says no, he won’t, because Bate lost his fighting spirit.

“Tyler Bate is the Little Weak Boy. And I am NXT UK! I am this brand! I am NXT! I am British Strong Style! Come here! Come here! I am Moustache Mountain!!” Fans boo as Seven sets down the mic, and Seven says everyone knows he’s telling the truth. Is he telling the truth about the future of NXT UK? Or will Tyler Bate prove Trent Seven is a liar and make a heroic return?

Wait, a fan gets really heated about Seven saying Tyler is weak and afraid. So much so, friends and security are trying to get him to calm down. But the fan jumps the barrier instead! Security rushes in to stop this man from getting closer and Seven says, “We’ve got a live one!” And then he LOW BLOW KICKS the fan!! Referees rush out and say Seven is out of line! Seven says the fan is the one who got up in Seven’s face. Is there nothing Seven won’t do just to make himself feel like the bigger man?


My Thoughts:

A very good episode of NXT UK with some good set-up for the summer episodes. Blair Davenport gets a good return match win, with Angel Hayze still looking very good in the loss. And Blair emphasizing “hope” at the end of her promo has to be her setting up something with Amale before moving on to the title again. Kenny and Sid had a good interaction to set up Kenny VS Tiger Turan. But sadly for me and my theories, if Kenny also thinks Amir Jordan is Tiger Turan, then that must mean it isn’t because they wouldn’t do that. They can’t let Kenny be right about this, right? It’d be pretty wild for Kenny to win and be right about who Tiger Turan is under the mask.

Millie VS Fallon was a very good match, but I feel like they could’ve played up more of Millie struggling to be aggressive before it backfired on her. But Millie losing does help build her story of disappointing Meiko and herself. Millie also had a very good bit of character work showing her surprise and bit of hurt feelings when Meiko chose Sarray to be her tag partner against Xia & Eliza. But that’s still going to be an awesome match with Sarray and Meiko side by side. Meiko & Sarray will surely win and that will surely set up Meiko VS Sarray for an awesome NXT UK Women’s Championship.

We got a decent interaction from Oliver Carter and Die Familie. I would think Carter rejects Die Familie’s invitation, and he could easily team up with other superstars who don’t like Die Familie, like Mastiff & Starz or even A-Kid. And we got a pretty good promo with Sha, Dar and Mark Coffey about how we’re getting that 100 to 1 betting odds Heritage Cup match. If Mark is getting one more shot in what Dar claims should be his “retirement” match, does that mean Mark wins? Someone from Gallus should get something more, and Dar losing will be his own reason for “not retiring.” Plus, if Mark wins, and Joe Coffey comes back, I’d love seeing Mark VS Joe for the cup.

Wolfgang VS Sha was a great main event match, and I figured Wolfgang would win to get Gallus back up. I don’t know what’s next for Wolfgang, but he’s always been a solid character and in-ring worker. And then, we closed with a very good promo from Seven, with him playing off the crowd’s chants and booing very well. That final bit with “the fan” was quite a surprise but it sure adds to Seven’s Heel heat. But obviously, Bate is coming back and he is going to have one hell of a match with Seven. Can’t be sure who wins that, but it’d make a lot of sense if Seven cheated to win, and then somehow, Seven uses that to go after Ilja Dragunov and the UK Championship.

My Score: 8.5/10
