It’s HBIC VS EST to see who is worthy of the NXT Women’s Championship! Will Mia finally end Bianca’s Un-De-Fea-Ted mindset? Or will Bianca seal her next shot at Shayna Baszler with a kiss (of death)?

The bell rings and fans duel. Bianca and Mia circle and tie up, and Mia gets a headlock to takedown. Bianca headscissors but Mia pops out. Roles reverse as Bianca headlocks but Mia headscissors. Bianca pops out and they trade arm-drags. They both go for one at the same time, and then both go for dropkicks. Bianca knips up but fans applaud this even exchange. Real recognizes real, but Bianca kicks Mia low and throws her down by her hair! “Gurl, Uh-Uh.” Bianca insists she’s Un-De-Fea- But Mia kicks her away! Mia dropkicks Bianca down and then shouts, “Who you think you talkin’ to?!” Things speed up and Mia trips Bianca up to then hit a basement dropkick. Bianca’s up but gets haymakers and kicks. Mia adds knees and more kicks, then a falling Pele!

Bianca rolls to a corner but Mia runs in, only to miss her cannonball! Bianca drags Mia out onto the apron to slam her into the edge! The ref counts but Bianca gets in to throw Mia into buckles.

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

The EST isn’t just the strongest or fastest, now she can be seen as the sneakiest woman in NXT! Bianca gets away with one, but will she really become a champion like that?

 

NXT shares shocking security footage!

Just as the NXT Tag Team Champions were taking their leave, a truck pulls up in their way. It was Jaxson Ryker being a distraction for the other Forgotten Sons! Wesley Blake, Steve Culter & Ryker would beat down the Viking/War Raiders right there in the garage area! What will the response from Erik Rowe & Ivar Hanson be when they return next week?

 

NXT shares footage from Shayna & The Horsewomen.

The Queen of Spades was overseeing her friends’ sparring session in the WWE Performance Center when the Genius of the Sky suddenly attacked! Io Shirai got some revenge on Shayna before Jessamyn and Marina yanked her off. But to back Io up was Candice LeRae! Mrs. Wrestling has had her own issues with the Horsewomen, but before anything more could happen, other training staff and young superstars hurried over to get Io and Candice out. Io wants revenge for Kairi Sane in the worst way, but when and where will she get satisfaction?

 

Raul Mendoza VS Riddick Moss!

Completely healed and no longer attached to Tino Sabatelli, the “Riddick Regimen” makes his NXT return. Will Moss’ refreshed new self be what he needs to rise up to the top?

Kushida will return to NXT!

The Time Splitter made an incredible debut against Kassius Ohno, but he’s only just getting started. Who will be Kushida’s next opponent to be sent Back to the Future?

 

Matt Riddle VS Adam Cole!

The Original Bro and the Panama City Playboy are both hungry for NXT gold, but had a verbal disagreement about who was next. Riddle didn’t beat The Velveteen Dream while Cole couldn’t crush Johnny Gargano, so now they’ll look to beat each other. Who takes the next step towards a title match with Johnny Triple Crown?

The bell rings as fans duel, and Riddle stares down with Cole. Cole and Riddle circle and approach. Riddle gets Cole with a waistlock and slam! Cole scrambles but Riddle keeps hold to slam him again.

Cole fires off furious forearms in return but backs off at the ref’s count. He comes back and drags Riddle up. Cole turns him for a neckbreaker! Riddle writhes while Cole seethes. Cole gets Riddle in a dragon sleeper, but Riddle moves around to resist. Fans rally up and Riddle manages to knee Cole in the head! Cole scrambles away but dodges Riddle to elbow him down. Fans decide instead of dueling, they’ll cheer “Both These Guys!” COle trash talks Riddle that he’s a joke. Riddle CHOPS Cole! Cole forearms but Riddle CHOPS! Riddle fires palm strikes but Cole ducks a kick to enziguri! But Riddle deadlift German Suplexes Cole!

And deadlift German Suplex again! Bridging cover, TWO! Cole survives and Riddle gets feeling to his arms.

Fans rally as Riddle drags Cole up. Cole powers Riddle to a corner then baits Riddle into a fireman’s carry. Riddle fights out and CHOPS Cole. Riddle runs but into a boot! Cole fireman’s carry, Ushigoroshi! Cover, TWO! Cole drags Riddle up again and suplexes, but Riddle denies the brainbuster to give a Bro Trigger! Riddle drags Cole to a fireman’s carry but Cole pops out to a backstabber! Cover, TWO!! Riddle survives on instinct and Cole is beside himself! Cole crawls over to Riddle to throw haymakers. Riddle CHOPS back, and now they brawl on their knees. They slowly stand as they throw more hands, but then Riddle grabs Cole by the chin. But Cole stomps Riddle’s bare foot! Cole superkicks, into an ankle lock!

Cole flails and reaches but Riddle drags him away from ropes! But Cole turns and kicks, only for Riddle to reel him into a Bromission! Cole counters to a cover, TWO! Riddle roundhouses Cole! Fisherman Buster and float over, to another! But Riddle goes for another hat trick, only to get Last Shot brainbuster! Cover, TWO!! Riddle survives and Cole is in shock! Full Sail hopes they “Fight Forever!” but this has to end somehow. Cole crawls away to a corner while Riddle slowly sits up. Cole comes back but gets more of those palm strikes! He shoves and fakes Riddle out to mule kick a knee!

Cole hops up, leaps, Panama City Sunrise denied! But Riddle’s Dude Buster is denied with a sunset! Riddle rolls through but misses the kick. Cole rolls him again but Riddle rolls through to powerbomb lift. Cole slips out and ducks a kick to SUPERKICK Riddle in the back! Last Shot shining wizard!! Cover, TWO?! Only Johnny Gargano has done this! Fans cheer for “NXT! NXT!” while Cole has flashbacks to New York. Cole and Riddle slowly stand, and Cole brings down the knee pad. But Riddle reels Cole in, only to get an enziguri. Cole runs but into a Bro Trigger! Bro To Sleep! Powerbomb, to Kami-BRO-ye!

But Cole flops out of the ring! And the Undisputed Era finally arrive to help. Strong helps Cole up despite being dead weight, but Riddle hops on the apron. Riddle Penalty Kicks Strong down, then gets Cole back in. Riddle slingshots, into a SUPERKICK!! Cover, TWO!? BROMISSION!! Cole taps, Riddle wins!!

Winner: Matt Riddle, by submission

The Undisputed Era is furious! How did Strong’s help backfire?! But that’s besides the point, as the Original Bro now rolls on with another win. Will this give Riddle pole position towards NXT TakeOver XXV?

Cole is obviously upset with Strong but Strong says he was just trying to help. Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly keep the peace, but the cracks in the team’s foundation are clearly getting bigger. Some fans wants to see this Undisputed Civil War, while others want them to #HugItOut. Strong leaves one way while Cole leaves the other. Is the only thing undisputed right now is that things are falling apart at the seams?

 


 

My Thoughts:

This was a great episode of NXT! Very little time wasted, as always, and Mia VS Bianca was a great match. Bianca is clearly leaning back to Heel with that dirty pin. She may have won but unless Io gets that belt, Bianca’s not getting a match yet. The WWE PC vid segment was great, though Io could’ve been smarter about that attack. She should’ve waited for Jessamyn and Marina to be out of the way. It was good to throw Candice in, too. I’m hoping she and Kacy Catanzaro can move up in the Women’s Tag Division, possibly with a match against Marina and Jessamyn, to then go after the IIconics and the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Though, Candice really should’ve been in the mix for the Women’s Championship by now.

Good to see Moss back from his injury, but it was even better to see Mendoza get a big win! Mendoza’s hovered in that lower mid-card, hopefully they can start thinking about bringing him up a little higher. I’m sure something can bring about a rematch, or even multiple rematches, but I’m thinking that’ll end up going Moss’ way. It’s disappointing to see NXT being affected by the name changes to the War Raiders, but it was bound to happen with Vince being the WWE overlord. Forgotten Sons are obviously going for those tag titles, and they’ll probably win (with cheating) so that the Raiders can go full time on Raw.

The main event was amazing! Riddle VS Cole was definitely worthy of at least title contention, and it did some great story-telling with the parallels of Riddle and Gargano surviving Cole’s moves. The Undisputed Era dysfunction is growing and that just has to result in Cole VS Strong at some point. And with TakeOver XXV announced, there has to be talk of Gargano’s opponent, or perhaps opponents. With Gargano going above and beyond his usual superhuman heart, it would probably take a Triple Threat or Fatal 4 Way to beat him. Plus, if this is the 25th TakeOver special and WWE is hyping it up like they are, going big for the NXT Championship is appropriate.

My Score: 8.5/10
