PLAY BY PLAY

Drake Maverick responds to the ending of last week’s 205 Live.

Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy were putting on yet another amazing match, all for the chance to be simply considered for a WWE Cruiserweight Championship match. However, just as Ali was closing in on victory, Hideo Itami would attack out of nowhere! Itami feels he deserves respect and a title shot, but this behavior is “unbecoming”. A “No Contest” is unacceptable, and Maverick wants everyone to know that ruining matches will not be tolerated. Therefore, Hideo Itami is not going to be even ON tonight’s episode. Maverick will talk out things with Murphy and Ali, but he won’t let that get in the way of tonight.

The Heart of 205 Live wants more action, and it’ll be against Murphy’s buddy, the Premier Athlete, Tony Nese! Can Ali get past all that happened last week to check off another win? Or will Nese impress and be the one to take a step towards Cedric Alexander’s Cruiserweight Championship?

 

Six Man Tag: Lucha House Party VS Drew Gulak, Jack Gallagher & THE Brian Kendrick!

Kalisto, Lince Dorado & Gran Metalik have had their problems will all three Ungentle Men on the other side, but only because the Philly Stretcher, Extraordinary Gentleman and Man with a Plan looked down upon them. Will the luchadors fly above as the superior trio? Or will Gulak, Gallagher & Kendrick teach them the new law of the land-based?

Before making their entrance, Gulak and crew have a backstage interview. Why have these three decided to join forces against LHS? To Kendrick, LHS fired the first shot when they claimed to be the best team on 205 Live. Kendrick vows his team will go through them. Gallagher adds that the luchadors “have enjoyed an unfair numbers advantage”, but now their alliance has evened things. Gulak’s vision for a #Better205Live is not a flying fiesta, but a technical master class. He’s simply bringing in his fellow professors to teach the “hoochadors” how to tap out.

The teams sort out, and Kalisto starts against Gallagher. The two circle, then tie up. Gallagher gets the waistlock and slam, and then a partial crossface. Kalisto stands up but Gallagher throws him back down. Gallagher shifts to a clutch, then back to the waistlock. Kalisto moves around, and arm-drags out of the slam. Kalisto says “STOP!” and does a little dance. Fans join in on the “Lucha! Lucha!” chants, then Kalisto arm-drags Gallagher. Kalisto wrenches Gallagher’s arm then tags in Lince Dorado. Dorado climbs, and hits a double ax handle. Dorado wrenches Gallagher, but Galagher pulls the mask. Kendrick tags in, and he whips but Dorado reverses. Dorado drop toeholds, walks all over Kendrick, then dares him to do something. Kendrick rushes in but Dorado back drops him.

Dorado tags Kalisto, then Kalisto tags Metalik. Kalisto runs, and Dorado gives him the boost for a falling splash. Metalik climbs up while Dorado adds his plank splash, then Metalik springboards for his own splash! Cover, TWO! Metalik brings Kendrick up, and whips him corner to corner. Kendrick reverses but Metalik goes up and over. Things speed up, Metalik rolls off Kendrick’s back, then swings on Kendrick. Kendrick ducks but Metalik comes back to headscissors Kendrick down! Then Metalik dropkicks Kendrick down, and brings him up to tag in Dorado. Dorado and Metalik double suplex Kendrick down, then cover, TWO. Kendrick scrambles and tags in Gulak.

Gulak walks right up to Dorado to haymaker Dorado down. But Dorado responds with a takedown, then gets running. Things speed up, and Dorado springboards to arm-drag and headscissors Gulak. Gulak gets out of the ring, Gallagher runs in but he gets sent out. Lucha House Party combines and fires up the fans, and with Kalisto and Metalik stabilizing him, Dorado leaps up to springboard and FLY!

Down go the Ungentle Men! Fans “Lucha! Lucha!” with the House Party. Dorado puts Gulak in, covers, TWO. Dorado brings Gulak up, Gulak swings but Dorado ducks to dropkick him back down. He brings Gulak back up, and tags Kalisto. Kalisto kicks Gulak but Gulak pulls the mask. Gallagher tags in and they mug Kalisto in their corner. Kalisto fights back and jawbreakers Gallagher. Kendrick tags in but Kalisto still gets Gallagher with the tilt-o-whirl headscissors. Kalisto mule kicks Gallagher away, but then Kendrick trips him up on the ropes! Kendrick covers, TWO, but Kendrick throws crossface forearms right away. Kendrick mocks “Lucha! Lucha!” as he stalks Kalisto. He bends Kalisto back in an armlock and dragon sleeper. Kendrick snap suplexes Kalisto then covers, TWO.

Tag to Gulak, and Gulak stomps away on Kalisto. Gulak drags Kalisto up for a scoop, and carries him around before slamming him. Cover, TWO, but Gulak puts Kalisto in a half straitjacket. Gulak puts him in the full straitjacket, and bends him back while fans rally. Kalisto gets up and out to jawbreaker Gulak, then hits Kendrick and Gallagher for good measure. Gulak grabs Kalisto’s leg, but Kalisto keeps reaching. Kendrick distracts so that the ref doesn’t see the tag! Dorado is held back, and Gallagher goes after Kalisto in the distraction, putting the Lucha Dragon into the apron while Gulak hits Metalik. Gallagher feeds Kalisto to Gulak for a stomp and cover, TWO. Gulak drags Kalisto over, Gallager tags back in. Gallagher drops an elbow, then drags Kalisto up for a standing abdominal stretch.

Fans rally as Kalisto endures. Kalisto pops out but Gallagher scoops and slams him. Now Gallagher mocks the “Lucha! Lucha!” as he stalks Kalisto. Kalisto crawls, but Gallagher is on him again. Tag to Kendrick, Gallagher throws Kalisto for hotshot on the ropes, then Kendrick boots him down! Cover, TWO! Kendrick rains down rights, then drags Kalisto up to tag Gulak. Gulak hits Kalisto and puts him in an Argentine Backbreaker Rack. Gulak carries Kalisto around, then slings him down. He puts Kalisto in a hammerlock and half crab! Kalisto endures the bending and stretching while fans rally. Kalisto fights with his free leg but Kendrick tags in to stomp him down. Kendrick drags Kalisto up, whips him corner to corner hard, and Kalisto hits the buckles then the mat. Kendrick keeps on Kalisto with forearms, then backs off.

Kalisto kicks away on Kendrick but Kendrick powers him into the corner with shoulders. Kendrick backs off, then hoists Kalisto up top. He climbs up to join Kalisto but Kalisto fights back. Gulak comes over but Kalisto kicks him away. Kalisto leaps, for a tornado DDT! Both men are down but crawling. Hot tags to Gallagher and Metalik! Metalik springboards and crossbodies, then handsprings and chops Gallagher. He whips Gallagher but Gallagher reverses, only to run into Metalik’s SUPERKICK! Metalik hits the Sling-Dog, then runs the ropes to hit the missile dropkick! Cover, TWO, but Metalik brings Gallagher up to tag in Dorado. They double whip and Dorado holds Gallagher up, for Metalik to springboard dropkick down. Jackknife cover but Gulak breaks it up just in time.

Gulak helps Gallagher to their corner, then tags in. Gulak goes after Dorado, but Dorado knees out to huricanrana pin. TWO, but then the dragon’s lair, TWO. Dorado headscissors but Gulak shoves it away. Gulak then clobbers Dorado with a clothesline! Cover, TWO, and Gulak grows frustrated. Gulak gets up, drags Dorado up into a dragon sleeper, but Dorado resists. Dorado spins aruond and tilt-o-whirls to a waistlock. Gulak standing switches an drolls up, but holds the tights! The referee notices, and calls off the count. Gulak tries to explain but too late. Dorado rolls him up, TWO! Gulak boots but Dorado blocks to respond with a windmill kick! Cover, TWO. Both men crawl for their corners, hot tag to Kendrick.

Kendrick goes after Kalisto, then flapjacks Dorado on the buckles. Kendrick hits the headlock takedown and puts on the Captain’s Hook! Dorado endures, Kalisto saves him with a dropkick! Gallagher rocks Kalisto with a right, but Metalik SUPERKICKS Gallagher. Gulak boots Metalik, then helps Gallagher up. Dorado flies for a crossbody, but they both catch him. Dorado lands on his feet out of their throw, but they double whip him. He handsprings, for a double Golden Rewind! Gulak and Gallagher stagger, Kalisto and Metalik dropkick them out! Then, they build speed and DOUBLE FLY!

Dorado fires himself up, and waits for someone to stand. Dorado runs, but into a takedown, for the Captain’s Hook! Kendrick has him alone in the middle of the ring. He reaches, moves around, and crawls for ropes. Dorado fades, Kendrick rolls him but Dorado counters to his own cover! Lucha House Party wins!!

Winners: Lucha House Party, Dorado pinning

The flying fiesta leave Gulak, Gallagher & Kendrick furious in defeat. With this combination of skills and thrills, does this finally establish Lucha House Party as the best team in the Cruiserweight Division?

 

Hideo Itami speaks.

First in Japanese, then in English, the Don from Nihon declares that neither Mustafa Ali and Buddy Murphy are worthy of being in a main event or in a Cruiserweight Championship match. Itami believes he is the next champion, and believes he’ll make everyone #RespectMe.

 

Drake Maverick meets with Buddy Murphy.

The Cruiserweight Juggernaut only wants to talk a revenge match against Hideo Itami. If it’s anything else, he doesn’t care. Really? Yeah, and if Maverick was a good GM, he’d have already made that match. Otherwise, Murphy’s not competing. Is that so? Because Mustafa Ali made a request to wrestle Itami, too. He’s not getting that match, either, because Maverick isn’t going to let another main event be ruined. And if Murphy is going to visit a boss, bring a request, not an ultimatum. Everyone will get what they want eventually, when Maverick says so. “So until then, keep the peace.” Murphy nods, but will he really keep himself out of trouble?

 

Mustafa Ali speaks.

The Heart of the Cruiserweight Division knows he was on the verge of “stopping the unstoppable”, and beating Buddy Murphy in their match. But then Itami had to interfere. Itami may have made Ali #GoToSleep, but where Ali’s from, “when you get knocked down, you get back up.” Ali is up, and will get back in the ring to take on Tony Nese to take a step towards that Cruiserweight Championship. Murphy and Itami better watch closely.

 

Akira Tozawa VS Steve Irby!

The Stamina Monster and former Cruiserweight Champion himself wants to spring back from falling to Hideo Itami. Can he make a splash in Memphis to earn his way back to the title?

The bell rings and Irby swings on Akira. Akira ducks and chops away. He fakes a chop to hit Irby with a jab! Fans “AH! AH!” as Akira stomps on Irby. Irby blocks a stomp to spin Akira around for the mule kick. Irby runs, sunset flips but Akira rolls through to Penalty Kick and back senton! Akira starts up more “AH! AH!” but Irby gets to ropes. Irby sucker punches then boots Akira down. Irby stomps away on Akira in a corner, then drags Akira up. Akira fights back but Irby knees low. Irby whips Akira but Akira goes up and over, only for Irby to rock him with right hands. Irby whips but Akira slips free so Irby hits him again. The “King of Moonsaults” decides to run, but he runs into Akira’s headscissors! Akira fires up and shining wizards Irby.

Akira climbs up with “AH! AH!” from the fans, and hits a missile dropkick. Irby staggers up, Akira kicks, swings, slides under, and hits the spinning roundhouse! Irby goes down but Akira fires up as he climbs again. Akira aims, and hits the SUPER Senton! Cover, Akira wins!

Winner: Tozawa, by pinfall

The Stamina Monster makes gains with this win, but it’s only a start. Will Tozawa be able to battle his way back to the Cruiserweight Championship before someone else does?

 

The Man of the Hour joins the Cruiserweight Division!

Lio Rush has been waiting for the right time, “with a nice hook, with the right line. Fishing for gold, the right kind.” But to be honest, Lio is upset. He feels disrespected. “How can you have two Cruiserweight Championship Tournaments without having THE very best Cruiserweight in the world”? But it’s about time that things are put in order, that things are no longer misunderstood. And soon the world will know why Lio Rush is the right man in the right place at the right time. When is that time? And when that time comes, will Lio rush his way to the top in a matter of no time at all?

 

Tony Nese speaks.

“So Mustafa Ali wants back in the title picture?” Then he made a big mistake accepting Nese’s challenge. Ali isn’t the only one looking to prove himself, and tonight isn’t about him. The Premier Athlete says tonight is his night to make a statement at Ali’s expense. Can Nese jump ahead in line towards challenging the #AgeOfAlexander?

 

TJP speaks.

“What a surprise, another 205 Live without TJP in a high-profile match.” But that’s okay, he’ll just rack up weights and Instagram likes, and when this “Cruiser-Great” moves up to being a “Heavy-Great”, no one will know where TJP will show up next. And then Drake Maverick won’t just think of TJP as the superstar who carried the brand on his back, but as the superstar who got away. Will the inaugural (New Era) Cruiserweight Champion really make the move to another division?

 

Mustafa Ali VS Tony Nese!

If the Beacon of Light is the Heart, then the Premier Athlete is definitely the Abs of 205 Live. Not only do Ali, Hideo Itami and Buddy Murphy want a shot at the Cruiserweight Champion, so does Nese. Can Nese make himself the fourth man in the conversation with a win here tonight?

But as it’s well-documented, Nese and Murphy are clearly muscular pals, and the Aussie Antagonist is even being Nese’s corner man tonight. As Nese enters the ring, so does Murphy, and they flank Ali on either side. The referee tries to keep the peace, but luckily for the Heart, he has a friend in the Soul of 205 Live! Yes, THE Cruiserweight Champion, Cedric Alexander, appears and joins Ali in the ring.

The referee still stands his ground in keeping this the scheduled 1v1 match. Alexander and Murphy leave things to their friends, and the match begins.

Nese and Ali tie up, and Nese powers Ali back to a corner. Nese lets up but then body shots Ali hard. Ali doubles over, but Nese keeps on him. Ali hits back, but Nese fires off even more body shots. Nese throws Ali to ropes, then back drops Ali high. Cover, ONE, but Nese just flexes at Alexander. Alexander tells Nese to focus on Ali. Ali gets up, then goes up and over Nese. Things speed up, Ali cartwheels and dropkicks Nese out. Nese hops back but Ali sends him back down with a spinning heel kick! Ali goes out to fetch Nese, but Murphy shields his friend. Alexander stares Murphy down, but then Nese runs in with a forearm! Nese brings Ali up while the ref keeps Alexander and Murphy back. Nese throws Ali hard into the post!

Murphy taunts Ali but then the referee gives a final warning. Alexander and Murphy give plenty of space as Nese puts Ali in the ring. Cover, TWO, but Nese stays on Ali. Nese stands on Ali’s hand, mocking the Heart of 205 Live. Nese whips Ali hard into buckles while Maverick watches backstage. Ali staggers, Nese runs and runs Ali over with a back elbow! Cover, TWO, but Nese mocks him even more as he puts him in the bodyscissors. Nese squeezes Ali’s ribs, but Alexander coaches Ali. Ali endures as Nese adds chops, but fans build to a rally. Ali fights against the legs, then gets free, but Nese grabs him in the rear bearhug. Murphy likes what he sees, but the two then stand up. Ali elbows out, but Nese clubs him down.

Nese drags Ali up, but Ali counters the back suplex to a crossbody, TWO. Nese throat chops Ali, then runs for a hotshot! Ali snaps back, gasping for air, and Nese jumps up for the triangle moonsault. Ali narrowly avoids it, then slips out to roundhouse Nese away. Nese staggers, Ali slingshots in to hit the facebuster! Cover, TWO! Murphy is relieved but Alexander coaches Ali up. Fans rally as Ali and Nese stand up. Ali chops Nese, then again. He whips Nese but Nese reverses to slide under and pumphandle Ali on his shoulder. Ali slips out but Nese elbows him away. Nese runs into a back elbow, Ali hop up but the tornado DDT is denied. Nese goes Matrix to then kick, knee, kick and elbow Ali. He runs but Ali follows, they double clothesline themselves down!

Alexander and Murphy coach their friends, and fans rally up, too. Ali and Nese slowly stir, and Nese gets to a corner. Ali stands, and runs in, but into a boot. Nese brings Ali up in the corner, but Ali dropkicks him back! Nese teeters, and Ali climbs up, but Nese pushes him away. Ali back-flips and lands on his feet, but Nese clobbers him with a clothesline! Nese turns Ali inside out, then drags him up into the pumphandle scoop, and driver! Cover, TWO! Alexander is fired up for his friend while Nese grows frustrated. Fans rally again as Nese comes around to Ali. Nese drags Ali up and into a corner. Nese stomps, then runs, but into a SUPERKICK!

Ali goes up while Nese goes down. Ali aims, but Murphy saves Nese from the drop zone. Alexander comes over and jaws with Murphy. Ali builds speed and leap frogs the referee to FLY onto Nese!

They both go down, but then Murphy attacks Alexander! They go into the ring, but Alexander counters the boots with a back elbow. Murphy rolls out and Alexander builds speed to DIVE! Alexander sends Murphy all the way to the ramp, but then goes after him again to brawl. Ali returns, then Nese. Nese rolls Ali, TWO, deadlift buckle bomb! Cover, TWO!! And Nese cannot believe it! Nese glares down at Ali as he backs away. He stands up, and punts Ali right in the ribs! Ali ends up in a corner and Nese scrapes his boot into Ali as he shouts, “I’m better than you!”

Nese backs off at the ref’s count of 4, then brings down the knee pad. He runs side to side, but Ali dodges and sends the Premier Kneese into buckles! Nese crawls away, and Ali gets up, to springboard tornado DDT! Ali has Nese where he wants him, then climbs up again. Ali hits the 0-5-4!! Cover, Ali wins!

Winner: Ali, by pinfall

The Heart of 205 Live shows he has more than enough heart for Nese’s muscles. While there is unfinished business with Murphy and Itami, Ali surely impressed tonight. But he isn’t going to wait for Maverick, Ali takes the mic and speaks in the ring. “Drake, listen, I know you’re watching.” Maverick said that everyone would get what they want. Murphy, Itami and Ali all want to rip each other’s heads off. “So give us what we want!” Make it happen, next week, in a TRIPLE THREAT!

Backstage interview with Drake Maverick.

The GM of 205 Live has heard the request, and can see Itami has ruffled some feathers. Maverick’s job gets really easy sometimes, because yes, he WILL give us the Triple Threat! Ali VS Murphy VS Itami, who survives?!

 


 

My Thoughts:

Another great night for the Cruiserweight Division, with another great State of the Division Address from Maverick. I was expecting the Triple Threat of Ali-Murphy-Itami tonight, but I guess they want to save that for the post-MITB episode as opposed to a go-home for a PPV they don’t even have a part in. The Triple Threat will still be great, and that has to be what crowns a new #1 Contender to the title. I wonder if they can really stretch things so that Alexander and his challenger won’t wrestle until Extreme Rules, though. And I almost thought Ali VS Nese was going to become a tag team match, but perhaps it’s too soon for the Heart & Soul and the workout pals to shift from the singles title to the yet-to-exist tag titles.

Even then, it almost feels like the tag division is moving into a Cruiserweight Trios Division with Gulak joining Gallagher & Kendrick tonight against Lucha House Party. That Six Man was great, but it just seems like a lot too soon for 205 Live if they go for a true trios title. It’s obviously easier to do tag teams than trios, if WWE could just get the Singh Brothers/Bollywood Boys, the Daivari Brothers, and any other possible Cruiserweight tag teams going. Stables can still be possible, as I’ve said before. Gulak and Kalisto can be the singles competitors for their respective trios, the same way that The Shield or The Club would do.

My Score: 8.6/10

The NXT Cruiserweight Championship takes center stage!

It may be a new era for NXT, but the Cruiserweight Championship still belongs to Kushida! Will Roderick Strong break the reign and take over the division?

PLAY BY PLAY

NXT opens with a lot of new stars in the ring.

Carmelo Hayes, Trick Williams, Odyssey Jones, Bron Breakker, Joe Gacy, Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen are waiting as the  NEW NXT Champion walks out! Tommaso Ciampa, Goldie in his arms, fires up the CWC and he joins these new guns in the ring. Fans are fired up for the champ and he says, “908 days, man, and on day 908, I reclaimed my spot at the top of the mountain and took back the title that I never lost in the first place! It has been a long, long journey,” and from neck surgery to tonight, “it was worth every damn second!” This moment here makes it worth it. Ciampa gets to say to each and every man in the ring, fan in the arena and fan at home that once again, Ciampa is YOUR NXT Champion!

Fans chant “Daddy’s Home!” but Ciampa hushes everyone. “I missed you, too.” Ciampa loves what’s going on with NXT 2.0! The energy is contagious, there are fresh faces, and fans like this, too. These young men and women are busting their asses day in and day out, ready to show the world just how damn good they are! Ciampa looks at Melo, “when Melo shoots, he don’t miss.” Odyssey Jones, Bron Breakker, the list goes on and on. Then there’s Ciampa, and we already know he is, was and always will be Mr. NXT! Now they can all give themselves a fresh coat of paint and put on “2.0” but one thing that hasn’t changed is the passion.

Ciampa looks around, Alicia is NXT, Barrett is NXT, and everyone in the ring is NXT! And of course, there’s the fans. They are the heartbeat and the soul of this place! The fans are the reason Ciampa gets to do what it is he does. Ciampa is so damn happy to have fans back and holding the title to represent this brand! With Ciampa holding the title, NXT 2.0 just became THE A-SHOW! So do Ciampa a solid: tell the world, and make them hear you and feel you, “WE ARE! N! X! T!” But here comes Cameron Grimes! “All this energy has got ol’ Cameron Grimes fired up!” And that fire will build with that championship, and he’ll go TO~ THE~ MOON~!

But Joe Gacy asks “Mr. Grimes” that as charitable that would be for Ciampa to give Grimes a shot- LA Knight interrupts. “Lemme talk to ya!” He’s looking at a heap of happy hot garbage when all the incels know they should be chanting “You Deserve It!” to Knight. But Odyssey tells Knight, “Last week, you lost twice in the same day! What’re you talking about, man? Shut up!” But here comes Pete Dunne and Ridge Holland! The Bruiserweight and Northern Grit storm right up to the ring, but they have Briggs & Jensen in their face. “So here we are, NXT 2.0. All these fresh new faces. SO let me give you all a piece of advice that I got: make a name for yourself.”

But Dunne says the problem is, he looks and sees “a bunch of geezers who are scared to throw the first punch.” Ciampa throws a forearm! And a brawl breaks out! Grimes stomps Gacy, Holland goes after Breakker, other superstars rush out to get them some! Hudson is after Trick, Grayson Waller and the Grizzled Young Veterans grab at who they can, and the ring clears aside from Breakker, Ciampa, Dunne and Holland. Ciampa ROCKS then TOSSES Dunne, Breakker does the same to Holland! The champion stands tall, as does the brightest of the new wave. Will they be the ones to give Dunne & Holland the fight they want?

Meanwhile, the women’s division is heating up backstage!

Elektra Lopez and B-Fab are jawing, but Amari Miller isn’t backing down from Kay Lee Ray! The shoving begins and turns to scrapping! Security hurries to break this up before it gets any worse, but the brawling continues in the ring, too! Breaker and Ciampa again DECK and eject Dunne & Holland, but then Breakker asks, “Where ya going?” The fans want to see this fight continue, so how about the two bitches grow balls and face Breakker & Ciampa TONIGHT?! Fans like the sound of that! Will NXT General Manager, William Regal, make it happen?

 

NXT Cruiserweight Championship: KUSHIDA VS Roderick Strong w/ The Diamond Mine!

The Time Splitter and the Savior of the Backbreaker have waited for this long enough, so they’re going to keep the energy of the night going by opening the card! Will the Super Junior still be champion? Or will the Diamond Mine finally strike gold?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who cracks under the pressure!

Strong rushes in but Kushida avoids the knee. Kushida drops down to throw kicks but Strong stays just out of reach. Kushida stands back up, they tie up, fight for control, Strong blocks a takedown to get a takedown, but Kushida fights the lateral press. Strong facelocks, gator rolls, but Kushida gets a toehold. Strong fights back with a chinlock but Kushida fights free of that. Strong wants an arm but Kushida gets away and fans cheer as the two reset. They tie up with knuckle locks and have a test of strength, but Kushida gets a takedown. Strong fights the press so Kushida throws down hands. Kushida still goes in but Strong turns it around with a clinch.

They fight up, Strong headlocks and shifts, but Kushida powers up and out, only for Strong to run him over. Things speed up, Kushida hip tosses to an ARMBAR! Strong fights to get up and make it a cover, ONE! Kushida has a short arm scissor and turns it into an ARM TWIST! Kushida keeps the omoplata, gets the other arm and falls back to SNAP! Strong bails out and is furious as NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and the two clinch again. Strong knees low and puts Kushida in a corner, but Kushida kicks back. Kushida runs in after an arm but Strong turns that to an OLYMPIC- NO! Kushida arm-drags Strong away! Strong comes back but Kushida WRINGS out the arm! Strong gets to his feet, Kushida dodges him to SHOTEI! And SHOTEI! Atomic drop and a whip to a hip toss! Cartwheel basement dropkick! Fans fire up and Kushida winds up, FASTBALL! Strong is down, but he dodges the Penalty Kick to CHOP back! Kushida ends up in a corner, Strong hurries over and puts Kushida up top. Strong climbs but Kushida gets the arm for a KIMURA! FALLING ARMBAR DDT!

Fans are fired up as Kushida and Strong slowly rise. Kushida aims from the corner, PENALTY KICK to the bad arm! Strong staggers about, but he BOOTS back from the ropes! Strong hurries to bring Kushida in, BACKBREAKER, to the OLYMPIC SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Kushida is still in this and Strong grows frustrated. The Diamond Mine coaches him up, fans are rallying and dueling, Strong runs to give forearm after forearm. But the bad arm makes things worse! Kushida kicks, Strong fires off CHOP after CHOP, then another forearm! Back suplex, but Kushida arm-drags out of the slam to get the KIMURA! Not quite the Hoverboard as Strong moves around to change leverage!

But Kushida throws Strong over! Strong keeps moving, he gets up, but Kushida gets the body scissors! HOVERBOARD!! Strong is down, Bivens helps him get the ropebreak!! The ref sees it, he calls it and Kushida lets off. Kushida already suspects Bivens! The ref is busy with Bivens as Kushida runs, but the Creed Brothers drag him out! And Ivy Niles hits a SUPERWOMAN PUNCH! The brothers put Kushida back in for Strong’s KNEE! END OF HEARTACHE!! Cover, Strong wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW NXT Cruiserweight Champion)

The Diamond Mine might as well have all their names on that belt with all the assists Strong just got! But now that they have a taste of gold, how long until Julius, Brutus and Ivy all get something for themselves?

But wait, here comes Grayson Waller! “Hey, chill, chill. Let’s hear it for the new champ, yeah?” Waller says after what happened to his boy, Drake Maverick, he’s starting to realize that NXT 2.0 is a jungle. But if anyone was built to survive in the jungle, it was Grayson Waller. So instead of just sitting in the back and waiting, Waller’s here to take one. So what does Strong say to a match with him for the title next week? Bivens says, “How dare you interrupt the champion’s celebration?” If we’re talking next week… Oh, gotta check in with daddy first? Bivens mocks Waller’s taunt, then talks with Strong.

Decision made! Next week, Diamond Mine shows Waller why they run NXT! Will Waller be baller and make it a slam dunk on his first try?

 

NXT hears from Tony D’Angelo.

He talks about the years spent on the docks, watching his uncles make some handshake deals. Some “business arrangements,” if you will. The family made many investments up and down the Atlantic, and his Uncle Paulie always told Tony, “There’s two things we take seriously: business, and family.” When it comes to sports, they were dead serious. Add a new item to that list: Tony’s success in the WWE. D’Angelo is on his way, will any wise guys try to start something with him?

 

NXT hears from Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen.

Big bad Briggs first met Brooks at Johnathan’s Pub the same night Briggs lost in the Breakout Tournament. Briggs was just trying to blow off some steam. He got three deep when some idiot, aka Brooks, bumps into him and so they start swinging. They got black eyes, loose teeth, and there’s still some blood somewhere on the bar. Brooks’ hands are like bricks, so Briggs learned to respect him. Brooks says if you can knock him onto a pool table and beat him down off it, you’ve got his respect, too. From where these boys are from, you throw hands, shake hands, and become friends. They love to fight and love to drink.

In the 2.0 era, it doesn’t matter if it’s a street fight, bar fight or dog fight, you fight these two, you’re in for a bad night. If you start something, Briggs & Jensen are going to end it! Will they fight until they end up contending for the tag titles?

 

Kay Lee Ray VS Amari Miller!

The Scary Queen of Scots isn’t letting that confrontation with the new girl go, and now it’s going down in the ring! Will KLR show Amari and everyone else in the NXT Women’s Division why she was NXT UK Women’s Champion for so long?

NXT returns and Amari makes her entrance. The all star athlete from KC, MO is all smiles now, feeling the vibe, but will she learn why KLR is a killer? The bell rings, Miller dodges KLR then eggs her on as she fires forearms. KLR shoves Miller away but Miller elbows back. Miller reels KLR in for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Miller gets KLR up and whips, but KLR reverses and ROCKS Miller with a forearm! KLR whips, dropkicks Miller down, then stomps Miller around. KLR covers, ONE! KLR drags Miller up, CLUBS her down, then gets her up again for a GOURD BUSTER! KLR scowls as she kicks Miller to a corner.

KLR eggs Miller on now, drags her up to CLUB her down again, and fans rally up. Miller throws body shots, KLR CLUBS her again. KLR brings Miller around, but Miller jawbreakers free! KLR blocks the heel kick to the Gory Especial, GORY BOMB! Cover, KLR wins!

Winner: Kay Lee Ray, by pinfall

And that is why KLR is here in NXT prime! Will she keep climbing the ranks until she’s the one facing Raquel Gonzalez for the title?

 

Backstage interview with Bron Breakker.

McKenzie asks Bron about his huge tag team match alongside Ciampa. How is he feeling? Oh, tonight’s huge! He’s getting in the ring with the top three guys in the world! Bron heard what Ciampa said, and those words hold a lot of weight. Ciampa walks over to say it’s sink or swim. Ready to get in the deep end, big fish? Hell yeah! Bron’s ready to kick some ass! And who better to do it with than the champ? Bron gives Ciampa a smack on the shoulder, but will he watch where his eyes drift in regards to Goldie?

 

Xyon Quinn walks into the CWC.

He talks with a few female superstars about their training, and they ask him the next time he’ll be in the ring. He’s hoping very soon. They note how good he looks in the ring and he thanks them. He gets the door as a gentleman, but someone tries to cut them off. Quinn has the guy wait, ladies first. Chivalry’s dead, bro. Yeah? Quinn SMASHES the guy into the door! Quinn is a gentleman but also a warrior, will this be a lesson to everyone else?

 

Dante Chen VS Trey Baxter!

The first Singapore superstar in the WWE makes his debut as the 2.0 era ushers in more new names! But will #AllHeart rain on the parade as he still tries to make a name for himself?

The bell rings and Chen ties up with Trey. They go around, Chen powers Trey to a corner and fans duel. Chen lets off, Trey BOOTS him and then gets around to a BACKBREAKER to HALF ‘N’ HALF! Trey hurries to a corner and up top, but Chen anchors a foot. Trey kicks at Chen but Chen holds on. Trey gets Chen to let go but has to leap over him. Chen turns around into a cradle, TWO! Chen dead lifts Trey for a SIT-OUT CRADLE DDT! Cover, Chen wins!

Winner: Dante Chen, by pinfall

Trey may be all heart but Chen won in the blink of an eye! Will this young star take NXT by storm?

 

NXT has a message from “Chase University.”

Andre Chase welcomes students to day one of a place of higher learning. They’ve chosen his course to get ahead in the careers. The first lesson is on Odyssey Jones and how he failed to get ahead by losing the finals of the Breakout Tournament. Roll film. Chase didn’t take kindly to Jones embarrassing him at the #InDex Wedding, but look at how embarrassing this weak cover was. Carmelo Hayes easily rolled Jones up, and there is the face of a loser. Chase teaches the fundamentals: a lateral press with all the weight on the shoulders. Lights, please, there’s a question. Didn’t Jones beat Chase in the first round?

What’s your name again? Steve. Well, Steve, who did you ever beat?! WHO THE F DID YOU EVER BEAT!? Get the F out of here! Don’t you disrespect him! Chase throws chairs around, is class going to be canceled?

 

NXT has a medical update on Kyle O’Reilly.

His ribs are reinjured and he will be week to week on whether or not he can compete.

 

NXT also has an update on Triple H!

The Game tweeted himself that he has been “blown away by the outreach and support from so many people.” HHH is recovering, doing well and so very grateful for all the love in his life, especially from the NXT crew. Also, Steph and the girls loved the snacks they sent. HHH hopes to see us soon, and we hope to see him again, too.

 

NXT returns and Joe Gacy is in the ring.

“Tonight, this ring is a safe space. NXT 2.0 is full of conflict, from the smallest microaggression to the most heinous grudges. This is a place where we settle our differences.” Gacy comes to us tonight with a mindset of conflict resolution, where he doesn’t need to use “male privilege” to get what he wants. Gacy understands that life isn’t fair. But he believes we can achieve unity and tolerance for us all. Gacy can be the man that will show us we can achieve peace in this safe space. That starts tonight!

Cameron Grimes VS Joe Gacy!

The Carolina Cash Money Caveman is ready to take 2.0 #ToTheMoon, but will he have to resolve this conflict he started with Gacy? Or will Gacy’s old wild man antics find their way back to the surface?

QUICK NOTES

AEW is pumping up Dark again, but this is a pretty big week for them being in New York for Dynamite and Rampage and paving the way towards the anniversary and the start of “season three.” Great to see a lot of fresh match-ups just within the established roster, such as the various Dark Order matches. Garcia VS Angels is probably going to be a show stealer in and of itself. Kingston VS Bear Bronson sounds like another great one, and I like that former WWE Cruiserweights are showing up somewhere. Curt Stallion & August Grey deserved better chances than WWE’s Prick Khan gave them, so maybe Tony Khan can at least find them a place to be within the various partnerships, even if it’s with Impact or NWA.
