Roxie got it down, and proved you don’t have to bend the rules to get ahead! But is she going to make the cut? We see the WWE Hall of Famers gather backstage, will they choose the Prodigy to be an Iron Survivor Challenger?
Andre Chase reviews student papers.
Miguel should know better! There’s two B’s in Gobbledy and two O’s in Gooker! Dumbass… Google it! Thea Hail & Duke Hudson find him. Duke apologizes for the boot to the face last week. He booted the only man he’s ever looked up to in the face, with boots so big they could put out forest fires. And with pinpoint accuracy, as he could’ve hit Chase anywhere and got him in the chin. Yeah, Chase was there. But see, Kit Wilson moved, Duke couldn’t stop his momentum, and then he let the team, the school and Mr. Chase down! Chase deserves to be champion. But Duke has a list of signatures. It’s a petition for Chase to get into the Iron Survivor Challenge!
Duke wants to take this to Mr. Michaels, because Chase deserves to be in the match! Chase says he appreciates that, but then Grayson Waller walks in and laughs> Chase sure ain’t street smart, is he? What? Well c’mon, Duke’s been playing Chase since day one! Duke is always about Duke. Duke is fired up and says he’s had enough of this. Waller says he’d have had it by now, too, if he had to spend a whole week getting signatures for someone who’d never be in a title match, let alone be champion. Thea explodes with anger! Duke holds her back, and Chase says HE will whoop Waller’s ass! No, Duke says HE will whoop Waller’s ass. Is the 21st Century Success Story about to have a Teachable Moment?
DIJAK VS ???
The man once known as T-Bar is back in NXT, and is simply known as “Dijak.” Will he dish out more #HardJustice to those he deems guilty? Or will Dante Chen prove that Dijak is no hero?
The bell rings and Dijak circles with Dante. They tie up, and Dijak chinbars Dante around to CLUB him down! Dijak then sits Dante up and choke grips! Dante tries to break free, he throws forearms, and he fires off more, but Dijak shoves him out of the ring! Dijak goes out after Dante, but Dante RAMS him into the apron! The ring count starts, fans rally for Dante, but Dijak catches him as he slides into the ring! Dante kicks at Dijak, then runs and builds speed, but runs into a choke grip! SIT-OUT CHOKE SLAM!! Not quite South of Heaven, but Dijak rains down hammer fists of justice! Dijak then hammerlocks, CLUBS Dante, and stands over him.
Dante crawls to a corner but Dijak stomps him down. Dijak drags Dante up but Dante throws body shots. Dijak knees low, whips Dante to a corner and ELBOWS him! And ELBOWS! And CLUBS! Dijak reels Dante in, TIME TO FLY! Dante writhes from that suplex toss, but then Dijak stomps him more. Dante manages to stand up and throw hands but Dijak CLUBS away with more forearms int he corner! Dijak hammerlocks and CLUBS Dante again, but Dante throws back elbows! Only for Dijakc to back suplex! Dante lands on his feet! Dante throws body shots, dodges a lariat and DOUBLE CHOPS! Dante runs, and BOOTS Dijak down!
Fans fire up with Dante, but then Dijak rises and BOOTS Dante back down!! Dijak drags Dante around and hammerlocks him again. “JUSTICE IS SERVED!” HAMMERLOCK SLEEPER!! Dante is a ragdoll, but Dijak hoists him up, FEAST YOUR EYES!! Cover, Dijak wins!
Winner: DIJAK, by pinfall
Dijak gets the mic to say, “That is an example of hard justice! Unrelenting annihilation! I want you to look into my eyes. The only thing that you’ll see is the infliction of suffering. This place, NXT, this is a place of refuge. But not for me, no. I didn’t come here to reinvent myself, to discover myself, no. I came here to eviscerate a soft society and any man who stands in my way. Wes Lee, Dante Chen, Apollo Crews, Bron Breakker, it makes zero difference to me! Every last one of you is nameless, faceless men that will be brought to justice! MY justice.” Hard justice or just sheer brutality, it all seems to be the same in Dijak’s mind. Who will be next to face his law of the jungle?
JD McDonagh walks into the Diamond Mine Dojo.
He told Ivy Nile that she’s been right about her boys biting off more than they can chew. They all know Julius & Brutus are no match for Veer & Sanga. Those two are medical anomalies. Oh, speak of the devil, in walk the Creed Brothers. They ask why JD is here and Ivy says she has no clue. JD is hurt! He and Ivy were just having a talk about how silly it is to take on Indus Sher. Oh, is that so? Well, they don’t care. They know how Ivy feels, she knows how they feel, and they’re not backing down. Indus Sher is ready, but the Creeds’ wrestling skill is unmatched. Julius & Brutus will win this fight fair & square.
JD tells Brutus, “there is no such thing as a fair fight with these guys, and your wrestling isn’t gonna help you, either. These guys, it’s a matter of bone density. You guys are fighters, right?” JD uses the punching dummy as an example. We all know it takes 500 kilos of pressure to crack a human skull, right? Well with Veer & Sanga, it probably takes two or three times that minimum. Brutus says JD isn’t listening. The Creeds have proven doubters wrong their entire lives. Well, that’s cute but JD isn’t a skeptic, he’s an expert. JD is just telling them they can’t do this. It’s impossible. “Impossible” isn’t in the Diamond Mine dictionary. This is all they have, but it’s all they need! So get out!
JD says okay, fine, no problem. Good talk, Ivy. JD leaves, but does he have a point about the impossible odds Julius & Brutus are facing?
HBK and the Hall of Famers begin the discussions.
Shawn Michaels thanks and welcomes Alundra Blayze, Molly Holly, Road Dogg Jesse James & X-Pac for being here. The Iron Survivor Challenge is making its debut, and with Deadline being the final NXT premium event of the year, HBK wants to find the five superstars in both the men’s and women’s divisions that have had the best 2022. And not just from a wins or losses perspective. Road Dogg is grateful to hear that, because he was just wondering why he and X-Pac were here. Speak for yourself, Dogg! But X-Pac does admit, for being the former 1-2-3 Kid, he’s not a numbers guy. He’s had his eye on a few, though.
And that’s what HBK wants! Everyone in NXT brings something different to the table, and that’s why they’re all here. Molly keeps forgetting so many superstars have only had a few years in the business. Alundra remembers being here over the Summer, and seeing where the talent is now, that’s crazy awesome. Again why HBK asked them all here. He wants them all to share their opinions on who should get in. And HBK opens it up to the Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge first. Road Dogg jumps in with the top of his list. The quality of the year, not the wins or losses. CARMELO HAYES! X-Pac had him, too!
Melo is a bit cocky for Molly, but she can’t argue with his resume. Alundra says Melo dresses like a star, acts like a star, and passes the “airport test.” X-Pac says Melo is a Heat Magnet for sure. Alundra teases that X-Pac would know what that’s like. HBK does, too. HBK has talked with Melo, but he can’t not have him in the match. Alundra nominates Tony D’Angelo, and X-Pac is all for The Don of NXT. Dogg says that’s a spicy-a meatball-a! Settle down now. But that big moment beating Ciampa and his rivalry with Santos, but also his health… He might be a couple weeks out. Timing is everything, so maybe it isn’t Tony’s time.
HBK knows Tony would jump on the chance, but this is a case of protecting the talent from themselves. Okay, then X-Pac brings up JD McDonagh. That guy can go. He may not be 6’5″ but you don’t need to be, as these Hall of Famers can attest. JD is on another level. Dogg gets creeped out but JD can go. Molly says that from Halloween Havoc and on, to borrow a phrase from Sheamus, it has been banger after banger for JD. And the Irish Ace really has proven himself. HBK knows JD is in the zone. yes, he’s creepy, but he’s a surgeon in the ring. He has a body part and goes after it. That’s old school and Alundra likes it.
Another guy that has the creepy is Gacy. Molly knows The Schism is gaining momentum, so that would be an interesting element. Dogg listening to Gacy makes him question his own philosophies. Gacy is a leader, especially with Ava Raine in the fold and a big win on Cameron Grimes. Alundra says Gacy knowing who he is, he has to go for the kill, and that’s what we need in this match. Dogg says another guy who is in that position is Von Wagner. Fans may not like him, but he is a force to be reckoned with. X-Pac doesn’t want too many big guys in this. Why not? Is he jealous of the height? So then, is Axiom one Pac’s guys? Yes! Dogg’s too! High-five!
But Axiom isn’t cleared. Did you see how that leg was bent? HBK says going back to Von, what fans have seen has made an impact. Molly says Von has developed, going from main event of the first 2.0 episode and then that match with Bron. But Von hasn’t won the big one, so give him a shot. HBK gets it, the scoreboard hasn’t caught up with the development. Dogg asks about Waller. Yeah, no, he gets the award for the worst. But that makes him perfect! He’ll get heat. And if you’re not a fan of yourself, no one else will be. Is he popular? No. Is he able to win this? Yes! HBK has them all write down their top five and that will be a pool vote. Who will be the top five for the men of NXT?
Duke Hudson w/ Chase U VS Grayson Waller!
Speaking of the not popular Grayson Waller, he might have stepped in it all over again upsetting Chase U’s new star student. Will Duke prove he truly bleeds red ‘n’ black in the white ‘n’ gold? Or will he suffer the Grayson Waller Effect?
NXT returns and Chase U make their entrance. The bell rings and Duke circles with Waller. Fans rally and duel, but Waller dodges to mock the U and then say “SUCK IT!” Duke rushes in, misses, and Waller headlocks. Waller mocks Duke, but Duke powers out to run Waller over! Fans fire up, Duke headlocks and he does lunge steps to mock Waller! Waller pulls hair to get the headlock back, but fans rally for “Chase U! Chase U!” Duke powers out but Waller pulls hair to pull Duke back in! Waller dares Duke to do something shady, but Duke throws body shots instead. Duke powers out, scoops, but Waller slips out to pull hair!
Fans boo but Duke pulls hair back! Duke says Waller wanted it! Chase says no, no cheating! Duke stops, apologizes to Chase, but then Waller JABS Duke to a corner! Waller throws body shots, taunts Chase, then whips Duke corner to corner. Duke comes back to CLOBBER Waller! Fans fire up as Duke scoops Waller, for a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Waller rolls away to the apron, Duke storms over, but Waller shoulders into Duke! Waller slingshots but Duke stays up to sit on Waller! But Chase tells him no, so Duke doesn’t hold ropes for the cover. TWO! Waller gets away, Duke apologizes to Chase again, but Waller CLOBBERS Duke from behind!
Waller JABS Duke into the corner, throws elbows, but Duke shoves him away. Fans chant “Let’s Go, Chase U! Waller Sucks!” Waller whips Duke corner to corner hard and Duke bounces off buckles. Waller stands Duke up and CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Waller lets off and he wears Duke’s headband as his own! Waller mocks Chase U while fans boo. Waller drops knees, throws the headband off, then drags Duke up to a cravat. Fans rally as Duke endures, Duke throws body shots. Waller throws KNEE after KNEE and down goes Duke! Waller goes up the corner, walks the rope and mocks Chase U again, but Duke avoids the elbow drop!
Fans rally, Waller CLUBS Duke but Duke fires up! And again! And again! Duke is Hulking out! “U!!” Duke ROCKS Waller, and again, and again! Waller staggers about, into a scoop SLAM! Duke runs in at the corner to clothesline! And OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Fans fire up as Duke JABS, JABS, JABS and flips, flops, flies… “U!!” BIONIC ELBOW! Waller falls out of the ring and Chase keeps Thea back. Duke storms out after Waller, runs in, but Waller moves! The boot almost hits Thea, but Duke stops himself! Everyone calms down, Waller rushes in but Duke ROCKS him with a right! Duke says he can stop at any time now!
Duke gets in, but Waller SLINGSHOT STUNNERS!! Cover, Waller wins!!
Winner: Grayson Waller, by pinfall
Fans boo but the 21st Century Success Story may have just proven he deserves to be an Iron Survivor. “I told you! You know I’m right.” Chase looks at Duke, but is Waller right about Duke’s true colors?
Backstage interview with Javier Bernal.
McKenzie says that most days, she loves her job. But right now… She’s here with Javier Bernal. Hey, McKenzie. It’s the holidays. Let’s put the past behind us. That’s fair. Javi says good, because he loves Christmas. So here’s what the NXT wants and needs. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and now… BIG BODY TUESDAY~! That’s right! He has big body merch! Wow, really? Yes! Now, no one was going to bat for Big Body Javi to get TV time, but he stepped up to the plate and shows you can to! Introduction the Big Body Baseball Bat! Adam Judge slid into Javi’s DMs and asked him to endorse- Wait, does Javi mean Aaron Judge? Uh… Adam’s his middle name.
Anyway, here’s his next item. Big Body Javi is quite the sex symbol, he’s been told. By who? People… So when you can’t sleep with Big Body, sleep on Big Body with this Big Body Javi Body Pillow! So soft and handsome. Um, Big Body Pillows are trademarked. Uh, no, he knows everything about pillows. He’s been sleeping for five years. What? What? And finally… Men wanna be Javi, and women wanna be with Javi. Um, no… But here, smell like Javi with the BBC: Big Body Cologne. Spritz spritz. It smells like rotten eggs! McKenzie leaves before she barfs, but Javi says his BBC doesn’t smell that bad!
But in steps Axiom! Whoa, hey! What’s he doing here? Wondering what that smell is, for one. That’s the BBC, by Javi. Axiom is also here because he heard Javi’s been wanting to fight him. Javi says “Fight” is a strong, negative word. But even so, that doesn’t matter. Axiom isn’t cleared to compete, right? He is now. He just came from Medical. McKenzie says that’s great! Javi gets what he wants. Yeah, let’s make the match! Big Body Javi may have just stopped into something that smells worse than his cologne. Will the Undeniable Truth prove Javi’s not up to snuff?
Fallon Henley VS Kiana James!
Business is business, but this is personal as the Calculator has been insulting the Henley family every chance she can! And with Brooks Jensen tongue tied and googly eyed over Kiana, Josh Briggs brings him back to the back. Will the Cowgirl handle business all on her own? Or will Kiana make Fallon regret not taking that fat stack of cash she offered by taking the winner’s purse tonight?
The two stalk trash, Kiana pie faces, then the bel rings. The shoving starts, Fallon runs Kiana over, then tells her to get the hell up! Kiana stands, they tie up, and are in a deadlock. Fallon powers Kiana to the ropes, but Kiana turns it around. Fallon turns it back, the ref counts, they end up in a corner. The ref counts, Kiana pie faces, but Fallon pushes her back. The two tie up again as NXT goes picture in picture.

But Fallon bumps Kiana off buckles! And again! Fallon CHOPS Kiana, then snapmares her down to ghost pin! TWO! Kiana escapes but Fallon wrenches her arm to YANK it. And YANK it again!

Kiana is still in this but Fallon keeps on her. Fireman’s carry, but Kiana fights off.
Kiana wrenches the bad arm but Fallon DECKS her with the other! Fallon runs, baseball slides and ROCKS Kiana again! Kiana checks her jaw, Fallon gets in and BOOTS her down! Kiana bails out, Fallon gives chase, but then Kiana grabs her bag. Kiana gets back in the ring, Fallon storms up on her. Kiana throws the bag, Fallon swats it, but Kiana kicks the legs out!

Winner: Kiana James, by pinfall
A calculated move wins it for Kiana in the end! For Kiana, nothing is personal, it’s just business. But will business be booming if Kiana gets into the Iron Survivor Challenge?
Malik Blade holds up the torn sweater vest.
Odyssey Jones and Edris Enofe are there with him. Jones knows that sweater vest meant something special to Malik, but he cannot let Von Wagner get in his head. Malik is a better man than Von will ever be! Edris agrees, but Malik says this wasn’t even his. It was… his dad’s… This was the last thing Malik had of his. And he gets what they’re saying, but he has so much anger inside. Edris says to use that. Use that anger on Von! That pent up rage! And go whoop Von! They have an hour before that match, so Malik needs to get into the Freak mode! Malik is in that mode! Von better be good at taking an ass whooping, because one’s coming for him tonight!
But he also wants to handle this himself. Malik says Von made this personal, so Malik has to handle this on his terms. Malik’s friends understand. Will “Malik Da Freak” go wild on Vicious Von?
HBK and the Hall of Famers continue the discussions.
Now we move on to the Women’s Division. Same concept as the men’s, so they need a top five. Alundra starts and says this may seem bias, but she’s pulling for Roxanne. They had a moment at Great American Bash, and talk about development. That rivalry with Cora Jade made Roxie into a real threat. X-Pac can’t believe Roxie is only 21. We can’t even talk about what X-Pac was doing at 21. Dogg says they can’t even mention what he was doing at 31, or even last night. Molly says she was 21, she was just starting! She can’t imagine being in this spot at that age. There is so much potential here.
HBK says that’s the thing about the NXT Women’s Division. They’re all hungry, but they’re also frustrated when it doesn’t happen fast enough. Everyone is so impressive just to start at the ground floor. Well here’s the top floor: Zoey Stark. Dogg says she’s such an impressive athlete, it befuddled her that she wasn’t here sooner. And the Iron Survivor Challenge is tailor made for her. Alundra wishes in her prime that she could’ve faced her. But Stark probably would’ve won. X-Pac is surprised “Hunter” hasn’t called and asked to bring Stark over to Raw or SmackDown. Stark is primetime ready. HBK says it is only a matter of time.
But in the end, the job of NXT is to prepare the talent for RawDown. Molly says the internet says Indi is ready for that call-up. Oh, well, if the internet says, it has to be true. But Dogg gets serious and says there is just something missing in Indi. Maybe she doesn’t believe in herself. The fans do, but the superstar has to believe first. X-Pac says fake it until you make it, but there’s no hiding in this match. And someone who doesn’t hide is Cora Jade. Cora’s gotten better faster than just about anyone else in the Women’s Division. Molly says Cora really stepped into her own. When Cora said she is only about Cora, Molly believed her.
Dogg says Cora is also young, but who didn’t think about only themselves at that age? At the same time, Cora is dangerous. Alundra says Cora doesn’t have a problem being that, either. Who throws a title belt in the trash? Well, besides Alundra. That said, what Cora is trying to say is, “This is who I am, take it or leave it.” Dogg leaves it to take Fallon Henley. Fallon and the boys make a good package. She is a dark horse in this. Pretty, tough, and someone you can have a beer with. X-Pac feels a toss up between her and Kiana James, but we just saw Kiana beat Fallon, so he’s giving the edge to Kiana.
Dogg says what Kiana does outside of the ring clearly helps her in the ring. When she walks into a room, she owns the room. She has “It.” HBK asks for any other names we haven’t talked about yet, and Molly brings in Alba Fyre. Alba is perhaps THE best on the roster, and if not for Isla Dawn, Alba would be the champion instead of a contender. Everything is great about her character and her style of throwing caution to the wind. Dogg had Fyre on his list, but scratched it off because she wants after Isla Dawn. Then after that, Fyre can refocus on the title. X-Pac says Dogg is scared Dawn will curse him. Damn right he is! She’s scary!
HBK thanks the panel for their input, but again, time to put down the top five on paper and we’ll figure this out. Time to make some big decisions!
Cora Jade shares a TikTok video.
She mocks “poor Wendy.” It’s just like high school, getting bullied~! She feels so bad. NOT. But will the punk rock mean girl find out what happens when bullies push it too far?
Six Woman Tag: Toxic Attraction VS Kayden Carter, Katana Chance & Nikkita Lyons!
Mandy Rose is still NXT Women’s Champion, but Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne want the tag titles back! Will Toxic Attraction prove they are the top of the NXT Women’s Division period? Or will KC Squared plus the Lioness equal a force too strong for Toxic Attraction to handle?
Wait, ZOEY STARK attacks Lyons during her entrance! She stomps away on Lyons’ leg, but then refs and KC Squared rush over! Stark lets off, having done damage. Fans sing, “Oh~ Zoey is Angry!” Did Zoey’s grudge just ruin Lyons’ chance at getting after the Toxic Goddess? Mandy and her girls mock Lyons, “What a loser!” Will the match be off? Or will KC Squared find a new third before the night is out?
Aoife Valkyrie speaks!
“As a child, I would always watch the sky, watching the birds as they left Ireland for a new place. For a new life. Now I have left my homeland, channeling the spirit of the Morrígan. And as my old feathers fall to the ground, new feathers emerge, stronger. Who you once knew has shapeshifted to a new form, and is ready for a new battleground. Prepare yourself for Lyra Valkyria!” The Black Bird of NXT UK has finally landed in the US, who will she target first?
Backstage interview with Elektra Lopez.
McKenzie asks La Madrina how she feels about Indi’s loss, given their history. Lopez is feeling good, but why is Indi her return? “Biggest impact, lowest amount of risk. Indi has this connection with the NXT Universe which I don’t understand, but it seems like a trend to be an Indi Hartwell fan. But I’m La Madrina, I don’t follow trends, I set them. Whatever it is, Indi is the heart of this division, so if I take out the heart, then it’s mine for the taking.” Lopez didn’t come back to NXT to make new friends, no. She came back to build an empire all her own. If Indi wants to bet on herself, go ahead. But do not bet against La Madrina, or you’ll go broke.
Axiom VS Javier Bernal!
The number one name on the Big Body Files is back! The leg is 100%, so will Axiom be right back on track? Or will Big Body Javi show some big brains and go after that very leg the Irish Ace injured?
The bell rings and Axiom circles with Javi. They tie up, Axiom waistlocks, spins and snapmares Javi to then chinlock. Javi moves around, fight sup, powers out, but Axiom goes up and arm-drags Javi, to then DROPKICK! Javi bails out but Axiom hobbles a bit. Maybe the leg isn’t truly 100%, and Javi rushes in to go right for it as NXT goes picture in picture.
Axiom boots Javi away, then sprawls to turn Javi’s takedown into a facelock! Axiom shifts to half nelson and cover, TWO! The two stare down as fans applaud. The two circle again, tie up, and Axiom headlocks for a takeover. Javi rolls Axiom to a cover, ONE, and Axiom rolls from headlock to wristlock. Javi endures as Axiom twists the wrist and grinds the arm. Javi fights up, wrenches and arm-drags but Axiom holds on to wrench the arm and twist the wrist! Javi fights up, wrenches and wristlocks again, but Axiom rolls, handsprings and wrenches back again! Axiom hammerlocks the arm and grinds Javi down.
Javi sits up, Axiom chinlocks, but Javi fights up. Axiom whips, Javi avoids the roundhouse and bails out. Javi no longer wants this match, but Axiom DIVES to take him out! Fans fire up and Axiom drags Javi back up. Axiom puts Javi in the ring, stalks him, then catches him in a headlock. Axiom grinds Javi down, Javi fights up, but Axiom wrenches the arm again. Axiom wrangles Javi with the wristlock, bends that hand back, then pushes on the arm. Javi endures, but Axiom stays on him as he fights back up. Javi spins, monkey flips, but Axiom holds onto the wrist! Axiom continues to twist the arm as NXT returns to single picture.
Axiom pulls the arm back but Jav endures. Fans rally, Javi fights up and ROCKS Axiom with haymakers! Javi whips, but Axiom rolls and comes back to springboard, but Javi kicks the rope! Axiom falls and fans boo as Javi drags Axiom to the corner. Javi SLAMS the bad leg into the post! Fans boo more, the ref reprimands, but Javi SLAMS the leg against post again! The ring count climbs but Javi slides in at 5 of 10. Javi kicks the bad leg out! Axiom is frustrated but Javi just kicks the leg again. And then dropkicks the leg out! Cover, ONE!! Fans chant “YOU STILL SUCK!” as Javi hits a leg DDT!
Javi drops elbows on the leg again and again, then pulls on the toehold. Axiom endures, fans rally up, but Javi drags Axiom up. Axiom ROCKS Javi in return! And again! Axiom reels Javi in but Javi scoops and SLAMS Axiom down! Javi drags Axiom up, puts him in the corner and pulls the leg against the ropes. The ref counts but Axiom throws haymakers back! And BOOTS Javi down! Fans rally up, Axiom reels Javi in, but Javi lifts Axiom up! Axiom sunset flips, TWO! Javi grabs at Axiom, but ends up in a TRIANGLE HOLD! Fans rally as Axiom throws elbows! Javi throws shots back, fights back up, and deadlifts Axiom for a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!!
Axiom survives and Javi can’t believe it! Javi ties up the legs into a FIGURE FOUR! Axiom endures, his shoulders are down, TWO as Axiom sits up. Axiom slaps at the legs, but he falls back again. TWO as Axiom sits back up! Fans rally as Axiom reaches, turns, and turns the hold over! Javi endures the pain now! Fans rally, Javi crawls, and gets the ROPEBREAK! Axiom and Javi are separated, and Javi storms up to DECK Axiom! Axiom stands to ROCK Javi! And CHOP, and ROCK, and whip, and DROPKICK! Fans fire up as Axiom fights through the pain to GAMANGIRI in the corner! Javi flops and Axiom goes up! Springboard, FLYING LARIAT!
Axiom fires up and fans fire up with him! Axiom goes to a corner, shakes the bad leg, and runs in to- MISS as Javi dodges! Javi rolls Axiom to his feet to DDT! Cover, TWO!! Axiom is still in this and Javi is losing his cool. Javi goes to the corner, climbs up, but Axiom GAMANGIRIS! Axiom climbs up after Javi, brings him up, and HALF HATCH SUPERPLEXES! Fans fire up again as Axiom aims, GOLDEN RATIO!! Cover, Axiom wins!
Winner: Axiom, by pinfall
Big Body Javi didn’t just get what he asked for, he got what he deserved! Now that Axiom is back in action, will he make the cut for the Iron Survivor Challenge?
Nikkita Lyons gets checked by the trainer.
Is her leg in any pain? No, she’s good now. Well, nothing alarming then, maybe just some bruising. She is cleared, and Lyons says the only one who needs to start worrying about her health is Zoey Stark! Lyons stands on the leg and says nothing will stop them from fighting Toxic Attraction. Well okay then! It sounds like the match is back on, but will “The Hunter” just go after Lyons again?
Backstage interview with Pretty Deadly.
McKenzie says she’s got the NXT Tag Team Champions here, and they wanna hear that again! The what? The NXT Tag Team Champions. Kit & Elton love hearing that. There has been a lot, and they mean a lot, of Iron Survivor and NXT Deadline talk, but there hasn’t been enough Pretty Deadly talk! As an example, the whole world has been fixated, nay! GLUED to watching the World Cup. World Cup and Pretty Deadly are pretty even, but they’re going to fix that next week. It’s CHRISTMAS TIME! And so Pretty Deadly wants to tell the NXT Universe a little story. A Christmas story, Pretty Deadly style! #YESBOY! But just what does a Pretty Deadly Christmas look like?
Apollo Crews speaks.
“Less than two weeks to go and NXT Deadline is my time. My vision is clear.” But then Bron sits with him at the diner. Bron orders some coffee, and figured Crews would be here. What’s good here? The breakfast of future champions. Oh, yeah? Hmm… Bron doesn’t see that on the menu. Oh, sorry. No more fish to catch? Bron asks if Crews thought Bron didn’t want this match. Crews wasn’t the only one namedropping. Bron is pretty sure Crews couldn’t see past Grayson Waller there for a second.
Crews says looking back, it was actually worth the wait. Now that Crews has been around “the infectious environment” at the Performance Center, he wants a part of it. Crews wants that title even more now than he did when he first walked back in. And that isn’t good for Bron. Bron’s coffee comes and Crews offers him sugar. Bron accepts, and tells Crews that Bron may be “new” still, but when Crews came back and told Bron they’d bump into each other down the road, Bron believed that. Bron knows Apollo Crews is back, so he has to get in the gym at 6:15 AM to make sure his body is in tip top shape.
Crews says that’s why he stays later and later and then still gets there earlier than anyone else. He knows that it will take one hell of a man to take the title from Bron. And Crews is the only one who can do that. Crews watched and studied all of Bron’s matches. Crews can tells the grind is getting to him. Bron says the one who puts the most pressure on Bron is Bron. Crews says in two weeks, that person will be Crews. Being in the ring with Von was the first time Bron didn’t have the strength advantage. Still had the speed. But now, against Crews, on December 10th, Born won’t have either.
But that’s just it! Crews is the perfect balance. But he’s sitting across from a guy with that same skill set. Well, then something has to give. That is something they can agree on. Bron will let Crews enjoy his meal. Bron points out Crews hasn’t finished his sentence. Crews says it’ll finish at Deadline. Has there ever been a time one of Crews’ “visions” hasn’t come true? Nope. Well, there’s a first time for everything. Bron heads out, but will he be the one to write the final word on this showdown?
JD McDonagh VS Julius Creed w/ Brutus Creed!
The Irish Ace says he was just trying to help point things out logically, but there’s always a bit of snark and derision in how JD operates. Will he “help” Julius see what he was talking about in this match? Or will the Diamond Mine prove logic has nothing to do with heart?
Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (11/29/22)
Newark gets Dark!
Will Newark APPRECIATE Garcia, Menard & Parker?
AEW moves on from Thanksgiving and prepares for December! Winter is Coming, but who will be primed for golden opportunities?
- Hikaru Shida w/ Hagane Shinno VS Layla Luciano; wins.
- Six Man Tag: Hardy Party VS The Wingmen; win(s).
- Six Man Tag: The Factory VS Justin Corino, Ryan Mooney & Steve Josifi; win(s).
- Zack Clayton VS Chris Wylde; wins.
- Angelico VS Hagane Shinno; wins.
- Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tony Deppen; wins.
- Emi Sakura w/ Baliyan Akki VS Tiara James; wins.
- Six Man Tag: The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Tracy Williams, LSG and Jack Tomlinson; win(s).
Hikaru Shida bringing along Hagane Shinno (formerly known as Madoka) is interesting. More Japanese promotions seem to be willing to let talent work with AEW, and that of course helps AEW get recognition internationally, and helps those promotions get recognition in the USA. Shinno will definitely get a win off Angelico, but AEW’s already such a full roster, who knows if Shinno will see any TV time.
Good to see the Wingmen together again, even if it’s to lose to Hardy Party. But even the Trios Division needs its lower midcard, and that is where The Wingmen will be. Matt Hardy & Private Party might end up becoming The Firm’s Trios Championship contenders if they keep building up wins on AEW YouTube. They could give whoever comes out of the Best of 7 Series a great match, and we could see a lot of overbooked, “internal conflict” of whether Hardy Party is Face or Heel, same as we’re seeing with Death Triangle always resorting to the hammer.
