PLAY BY PLAY
The NXT Championship Celebration Tour BAYBAY, came to a screeching halt.
Adam Cole had a lot of fun rubbing his win in the faces of the Gargano Family and the Cleveland indie prospects, and even had a successful Download Festival match (not that anyone outside the live audience has gotten to see it…) But when he tried to make a pawn out of Twan Tucker, Cole got a rude awakening as Johnny Wrestling came to get even with him! The brawl that ensued would force NXT General Manager, William Regal, to give us a third match between Cole and Gargano for TakeOver: Toronto! But to make this trilogy truly epic, this time isn’t just 2 Out of 3 Falls, it is THREE STAGES OF HELL! Each man gets to choose a stipulation, and so does William Regal for the if-necessary third round. Who comes out of this finale finally THE NXT Champion?
NXT Breakout Tournament Semifinal: Jordan Myles VS Angel Garza!
As TakeOver: Toronto quickly approaches, this inaugural tournament with a golden opportunity at the end heats up! The third generation luchador leaped over Joaquin Wilde while the Austin anime action hero come to life overcame Boa. But now it is speed versus speed and stunning smile versus stunning smile in the semifinals! Who is first to qualify for the finals in Toronto?
The bell rings and the semifinals officially begin with fans dueling. Garza offers a handshake, and Myles takes it, only to be left hanging. Garza does some last stretches, but Myles shrugs it off. They tie up and go around. Myles waistlocks but Garza standing switches. Myles drops down and gets Garza in an armlock. Garza headscissors but Myles pops out, and the two stand off while fans continue to duel. Garza calls for a test of strength, and he wristlocks Myles around. Myles reverses and smiles as he wrenches Garza back. Myles switches to a short armlock but Garza uses ropes to flip through! Garza wrenches one way then the other to another wristlock. Myles rolls and slips through to another arm-drag takedown! Myles has the armlock and another smile as he grinds Garza down.
Garza endures as fans rally up. Garza fights up and whips out, but Myles reverses. Things speed up and Myles dodges a punch with a cartwheel. Myles back flips and dropkicks Garza down! Then he shoots that three pointer! Garza is on the apron and eggs Myles on. Myles runs over but Garza drops down. Myles jumps the sweep and wrecks Garza with a dropkick. But when he goes out onto the apron, Garza sweeps the skirt out from under him! Myles crashes and burns and Garza grins now. Garza then drags Myles up to throw him into steel steps! And into barriers! Garza leaves Myles behind in the ring, and tears off the pants! Fans fire up while Myles slowly stirs. The count passes 5, but Myles is in at 8, only for Garza to kick him back down! Garza rains down rights then toys with Myles.
Garza brings Myles up and underhooks, to lift Myles into a butterfly backbreaker! Cover, TWO! Myles writhes but he still survives, but Garza still grins. Garza looms over Myles to knock him down. Garza then drags Myles into a camel clutch. Myles resists but Garza clubs him in the head to finish the Caballo clutch! Myles endures the invention of Gory Guerrero and gets his arms out. He reaches for ropes but Garza grabs each arm to bring them back. Garza jumps to stomp, but Myles spins to sunset flip! Cover, TWO! Garza SUPERKICKS Myles right down! Cover, TWO! Myles survives again but Garza kicks him from the ropes. Garza grinds his feet into Myles but the ref counts. Garza backs off to then Penalty Kick Myles in the corner! Then he bumps Myles off buckles, and again!
Fans still duel as Garza stalks Myles. Garza eggs Myles on, then stands him up. Myles blocks the bump this time, and elbows Garza back. Myles gives Garza some buckles, and some kicks! He fires up and dodges, to run and rally with big forearms! Garza flounders and Myles sweeps the legs to then dropkick him down! Myles kips right up and fans fire up again. Myles runs in at Garza, discus corner clothesline! Garza drops down and Myles climbs up top, but Garza rolls away. So Myles springboards, but into Garza’s dropkick! Cover, TWO!! Garza is furiously shocked! But Garza drags Myles over, climbs up, and moonsaults, but lands on his feet as Myles dodges. Myles blocks, sweeps and SUPERKICKS! Myles fires up again, runs in, another discus clothesline!
But Myles isn’t done there, he waistlocks and deadlifts Garza for a bridging German Suplex! He also manages to hook a leg, and he wins!!
Winner: Jordan Myles, by pinfall; advances to the finals
Myles even shocks himself! He didn’t think he got Garza with that, but he did! And now Myles smiles all the way to the finals! Will it be Cameron Grimes or Bronson Reed that meets Myles in Toronto?
But wait, Shane Thorne shows up and goes to commentary?
“The Worst” doesn’t get what the point of debuting new stars is when he was here all along! Even on their best days, the Breakouts aren’t even on his level! They don’t have the talent, skill and good looks Thorne has on his worst day. Thorne has been here for three years, jumping off scaffolds while the others were stuck in obscurity. But Thorne doesn’t even care about this Breakout tournament, because he’ll find a way to breakout all on his own. What will Thorne do to be a thorn in the side of these new superstars?
NXT hears from Johnny Gargano.
Johnny Wrestling seems to reference Tommaso Ciampa with how he frames this video. “TakeOver: Toronto, Gargano-Cole III.” Cole involved Gargano’s family and made it personal. In New York, Gargano said he’d do whatever it took to finally be NXT Champion, and he did. Gargano won in New York, but that’s not even what this is about anymore. In Toronto, Gargano will do whatever it takes just to beat the hell out of Cole. Cole can bring weapons, his boys, but he just needs to bring that title. Because Gargano’s choice is a stipulation he knows very well, and has come to enjoy. Gargano’s stipulation… is a Street Fight! “Oh boy.” Will either man even have anything left after such a first fall to make it to the second?
Bianca Belair VS Xia Li!
The EST is back and takes on the spiciest superstar for the first time ever! Bianca wants to fight her way back to NXT Women’s Championship contention, but the martial arts expert wants to have her first taste! Who comes out of this match red hot in the midst of the summer heat?
The bell rings and Bianca tackles Xia right to a corner! She rams her shoulder in again and again until the ref backs her off. Bianca stomps Xia down then backs off again. Xia hits back but Bianca clubs her down. Bianca shows she is the fiercest right now as she throws Xia to a corner. Xia dodges but Bianca grabs Xia’s hair! Xia goes to elbow out but she gets chicken wings, for the Glam Slam! Shout out to Beth Phoenix, then a handspring moonsault! Bianca kips up to remind us she’s also the nimblest! Xia bails out while Bianca tells her to kiss this. Bianca then goes to fetch Xia at the apron. She hip tosses Xia in, and then stalks her to the other side. Xia elbows back, but runs into Bianca’s arms for a Fall Away Slam! Bianca doesn’t even need to fall with her to do it, because she’s also the strongest.
Bianca eggs Xia on, and toys with her. Xia shoves back, but Bianca clubs her down. Bianca drags Xia up for a suplex, and holds her up for some squats! But Xia slips out to kick away on Bianca’s legs! Then on Bianca’s chest in the corner! Xia whips but Bianca reverses, but Xia goes up and jumps over! Xia comes back but Bianca runs her over! Bianca drags Xia up, torture racks, and hits the KoD! Cover, Bianca wins!
Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall
The Kiss of Death puts another one away, but Bianca is not satisfied. She wants at the title, but when and where will she get her next chance?
Killian Dain is back in the film room.
“I’ve heard what everybody’s saying.” He wasn’t going to attack anybody from behind. But Matt Riddle isn’t just anybody. Matt Riddle is a “somebody.” A former UFC fighter, and the toughest in his world. The Beast of Belfast brutalized the Bro because in his world, there is no discipline, no weight classes and no rules. Putting Riddle through that stage was just a glimpse of Dain’s world. Dain can’t wait to show Riddle everything, and welcome him to his world. What will happen to Riddle when he enters Dain’s world between those four corners?
Mia Yim strikes again!
Jessamyn Duke was wrapping up in the WWE Performance Center when the Head Baddie in Charge got her just like she did Marina Shafir! A slam of the locker door, “Surprise, motha f****!” Mia would slam Jessamyn into a counter then kick her into the lockers. “You think this is a game?!” Mia uses a second locker door to SMASH Jessamyn’s arm! The HBIC ain’t nothin’ to play with, but will these guerrilla tactics force Shayna Baszler to give Mia a title match?
The NXT North American Champion, Velveteen Dream, is here!
Fans cheer as the Patrick Clark Experience makes his way out, sporting a new take on his Hollywood Dream jacket. Dream takes up the mic and says, “The only way that the Dream will step down as the NXT North American Champion is the day the Dream dies!” And that day the Dream dies, Dream will go straight to hell! Because that’s what it would feel like to be without this title. Because that’s what it felt like the day Roderick Strong sold his soul to Satan himself to win over Dream. Dream couldn’t even finish that sentence.
Strong is a hell of a man, and Strong can go all night. But no matter who or what Strong is, if he gets the Experience he wants, the same Experience everyone wants, it’ll be the same as before! “The spotlight will hit, the Dream will be over, and just like that, Strong will know he is not big enough to ride this ride.” Fans like the sound of that. But Dream does feel there is someone big enough and bad enough. If they’re within the sound of Dream’s voice, then Dream wants to experience them! But here comes Roderick Strong himself to respond!
“Oh, wow, Dream. Cool story.” But Strong doesn’t think Dream believes his own words. But at least now Strong knows why Dream’s been ducking him. “You’re scared.” Yes, he said it! Even with those glasses on, Strong can see it in his eyes. So Dream takes the glasses off to show his eyes. But Strong says he is not only the most deserving challenger on this continent, he is also the real deal and could take the title like that! So Strong wnats Dream to listen: “Give me what I want.” Dream VS Strong, TakeOver: Toronto! The result: The Experience DIES! And that is Undisputed.
But wait, is that… PETE DUNNE!? The Bruiserweight is away from NXT UK to be here on NXT Prime! And while the longest reigning WWE United Kingdom Champion finally lost that title, he has come back for a title he’s wanted ever since the One and Only had it. And he also gets some revenge on Strong by grabbing and SNAPPING the fingers! Strong goes reeling, and now Experience is alone with Bruiserweight. Dunne smiles at the title, but Dream holds it close. Dream leaves without a word, but will NXT GM William Regal have something to say about this potential Dream match?
Roderick Strong storms his way to William Regal’s office.
Just the man they each wanted to see. What is Dunne doing here?! And who does Dunne think he is staking a claim at Strong’s opportunity? Strong pinned Dream, so he should be next in line! Not Dunne! Regal does agree, but he was talking with Johnny Saint, the NXT UK GM. They’ve talked it out, and they agreed that Dunne would be part of the NXT Prime roster for a little while. Oh just great! But TakeOver: Toronto was going to be Dream VS Strong, as it should. But now it’ll be Dream VS Strong VS Dunne for the title! Oh of course! This favoritism again. But Strong will accept that, so long as he gets Dunne next week to make sure he doesn’t make it to Toronto. Regal will consider that, but for now he dismisses Strong. Will Strong and Dunne get even with each other on the road to their shared Experience?
Io Shirai VS Kacy Catanzaro!
The Evil Genius has changed just about everything, from her entrance to her gear to her attitude, after losing another NXT Women’s Championship match. But will this change of character change her luck and get her back on top?
The bell rings, and Shirai shotgun dropkicks KC down to a corner! THen corner to corner meteora! Shirai drags KC up, underhooks, and hits a butterfly backbreaker! But here comes CANDICE LERAE! Mrs. Wrestling wants revenge and she goes right at Shirai!
Winner: Io Shirai, by disqualification
Enziguri rocks Shirai out of the ring! Candice then DIVES and takes Shirai to the barriers! Fans are fired up as Candice grabs herself a chair. She chases Shirai into the ring but then Shirai bails out. Candice is furious but Shirai just shrugs this sneak attack off. Shirai no longer wants friends, but she’ll surely regret making an enemy of Candice. When and where will Shirai have to face the consequences of her actions?
NXT hears from Adam Cole.
“Once again, NXT Management trying to screw over the Undisputed Era.” First, Roderick Strong, the rightful #1 contender to the North American Championship, now has to face two men for no reason. Strong is one of the best, so Cole has faith Strong will walk out the new champion. Then the Street Profits accept the challenge of O’Reilly and Fish. Toronto is becoming the Undisputed Era’s prophecy of holding all the gold realized! Which brings Cole to him and Gargano. Gargano claims his fall will be the definitive one, but as far as Cole is concerned, what is definitive is just a classic wrestling match. You know, the stipulation Cole beat Gargano in at TakeOver: XXV. How fitting that Johnny “Wrestling” will lose and no longer be able to use that name anymore. And that is Undisputed. But will Cole really be able to repeat TakeOver: XXV knowing he’ll still have Gargano’s Street Fight to deal with?
Keith Lee VS Damian Priest!
The Limitless One has been in NXT for a full year already, but he doesn’t feel very fulfilled. Opportunities should’ve come his way but for some reason they just didn’t. And now he looks to ascend and become infinite! But can he do so against the Archer of Infamy?
The bell rings and Lee circles with Priest. Fans sing “Oh~ Bask in His Glory~” for Lee but Priest just smirks. Priest and Lee tie up, and Priest wrenches Lee to a wristlock. He reels Lee in for a headlock then shifts to a hammerlock and back to the headlock. Lee powers Priest up with one arm, but Priest holds on. Lee powers out and the two collide. Neither titan topples, and they both smirk. Lee wags his finger, but Priest says he’ll run again. Only to kick away on Lee! Lee shakes it all off and keeps his cool. The two put up their dukes, and Priest dodges those fast hands from Lee! Lee dodges Priest’s kicks but so does Priest, even as Lee leaps for a sabat! Fans are shocked but the two just smirk.
Fans chant for “NXT! NXT!” while Priest relaxes against ropes. But Lee has the fans chanting, and that annoys Priest. Priest rushes Lee but things speed up, Lee rolls over the back to run Priest over! Lee drags Priest up with one hand for a knuckle lock. Priest endures and pushes Lee, but Lee reels him in for a one-arm lift! Lee puts Priest down but Priest forearms free. Priest backs off, and baits Lee into a corner. Priest kicks a leg out then fires off strikes! The ref counts and Priest backs off, to come back and stomp Lee into the buckle! Lee is rocked as Priest brings him back up. Priest tries to suplex but Lee is too massive and mighty for that. Lee shoves but Priest counter kicks and clotheslines. Lee stays standing, but Priest kicks him again to then hit a discus clothesline! That takes Lee down! Cover, TWO!
Priest stays on Lee with a chinlock, digging his knee into Lee’s back. Lee endures and fans rally up for him. Lee pries free but Priest knees low. Priest goes to suplex again, but can’t get Lee up. Priest throws another forearm, but Lee blocks the whip. Lee reverses but Priest goes to the apron. Priest dodges then blocks, but Lee knuckle locks back! Priest powers back and climbs up the ropes, to go Old School for a crossbody! Cover, TWO and with power! But Priest isn’t upset, he actually seems to like Lee has this much left. Priest drags Lee up by his jaw, but Lee clamps on. Priest clubs Lee down, but Lee comes up. Lee denies the bow ‘n’ arrow pose, and holds on even as Priest clubs him again. Priest can’t break free or club Lee down. Lee clubs Priest down now! And again, and again!
Lee shoves Priest to a corner for a heavy left! Then runs to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Priest is dazed but he’s still in this. Lee drags Priest up again and into a bomb, but Priest spins out. Lee elbows Priest but Priest elbows back! And boots back! But Lee counters, swings, but Priest throat chops! Priest manages to hit the Falcon Arrow on Lee!! Cover, TWO!! Both Priest’s power and Lee’s resilience are incredible! But this is far from over as Priest drags Lee back up. Priest fires off hands and kicks, and a spinning elbow, but Lee gives that one back! Priest boots, Lee Grizzly Magnum CHOPS! Lee whips, runs, and POUNCES! Priest flew to the corner! Fans fire up with “Keith Lee! WOOP WOOP!” and Lee gathers their energy.
Lee goes over to Priest but Priest bails out. Lee follows and puts Priest back in. Priest knees Lee out, then catches his breath while Lee is down. Lee climbs back up as the count climbs, but Priest FLIES out, to be caught?!? Lee has Priest up for a bomb, but Priest slips out to ear clap and BOOT Lee into the steps! Priest grins as he watches Lee wince. But then Lee gets up with a glare on his face! Lee backs Priest down and they go into the ring. Priest uses the ref as a shield! For a sucker Cyclone Kick! And the Reckoning rolling cutter!! Cover, Priest wins!!
Winner: Damian Priest, by pinfall
The Archer of Infamy denies Lee from being infinite! Will Priest continue to #LiveForever by any means necessary?
A really good episode of NXT right here! This week’s Breakout Tournament match was great, even with it being less high impact and high speed. We get a lot of character out of Myles and Garza this time, which is perfect because these two guys have a lot of charisma. I was shocked Myles wins with a German Suplex, even if it had that modified bridge. This is going to be huge for Myles since the finals will be at TakeOver: Toronto. Bronson Reed VS Cameron Grimes next week might be the high impact match since both guys are big and bulky. Either guy would be a great test for Myles as far as clash of styles, but I feel it has to be Grimes that wins. I’m more aware of who Grimes was as Trevor Lee than Reed was as Jonah Rock.
I did not expect Belair VS Li tonight but they did really great, especially with Belair being so aggressive and dominant. Maybe Belair comes out after Toronto primed for another shot at the title. And it’d be great if it was Mia Yim as champion, because those two had a pretty solid series. Mia was amazing with this second ambush segment. This is a great way to write in how the Horsewomen won’t be able to help Shayna this time, and I expect Mia and Shayna to have an amazing match for that reason. I thought Shirai VS Catanzaro was going to be a squash, but Candice attacking was even better! Between this and Dain VS Riddle, TakeOver: Toronto might as well have multiple grudge matches to rev things up at the start. These just feel too important to make for the “post” TakeOver episode.
Gargano and Cole did great with their stipulation selection promos. I’m only a touch disappointed in Cole choosing a normal match, but he does have a point that the TakeOver: XXV match was that and he won. Their match has to go to the end, because then we can get the amazing moment of Regal announcing his stipulation is something truly wild, probably Last Man Standing. Dream, Strong and Dunne had a great segment together, and it’s pretty great that we’re getting a Triple Threat for the NXT North American Championship. Also this gives us an understanding of what Trent Seven has been talking about on NXT UK about Dunne being busy somewhere else. Dunne might very well be the winner instead of Strong, or he could technically be why Strong wins at all. I still predict Toronto is all or nothing for Undisputed Era’s prophecy.
The main event tonight was great! Priest VS Lee was so good, and it totally works for Priest to resort to cheap tactics to win. It will up his Heel status while also pushing Lee’s story of feeling down. Lee’s pursuit of “becoming infinite” is going to be a great story to carry him and NXT through the summer towards TakeOver: WarGames III/Chicago on Survivor Series weekend. If anything, Lee moves up to be in position for a title by then, and I really, really hope this year’s WarGames match has the Undisputed Era in a Winners Take All situation against big names like Lee, Riddle and maybe Street Profits in a rematch assuming they lose to reDRagon. I say Street Profits because I don’t see another new tag team springing up in the time between then and now.
My Score: 8.6/10

Kit Wilson & Elton Prince, in suits ‘n’ ties and wide brimmed hats, want us to sit back, relax, and get ourselves some delicious snacks, because this will be a one of a kind Stand & Deliver Pretty Deadly Preview Show. We just saw a wonderful performance from Axiom in that Battle Royale, earning the fifth and final spot in the North American Championship match. And what a gaggle of vicious competitors he’s joining. “The Mad Dragon,” Ilja Dragunov! “The Devilish Gentleman,” JD McDonagh! “The Audacious Champion,” Wes Lee! And finally, “The Masked Mystery from Mexico,” Dragon Lee.
“A match born from carnage comes full circle with an encounter that is likely to be as unpredictable as the events of its creation.” But Kit has a question. How does Wes possibly retain? Elton doesn’t think Wes will. His money is on the man as smart as them, JD McDonagh. So if Elton is going with intelligence, Kit is betting on Dragon Lee. We don’t know a thing about him, and that makes him dangerous. “Kitty” loves danger, doesn’t he? Yes! And they love YOU!, fans! They’ll be back with more hot takes throughout the evening as we’re on the Road to Stand…! And Deliver!
Chase U talks backstage.
Thea Hail says Tyler Bate’s fired up! Andre Chase asks if Tyler’s fired up and Tyler says he’s fired up! Can he feel it? He feels it! Chase says Bate did great in the Great Debate, and they’re just four days away from Stand & Deliver, where the of Chase University hangs in the balance! But tonight, the Big Strong Boi takes on big bad Von Wagner, who has talked trash on Chase U and Chase U has yet to beat. But Bate will beat Von, and they’re gonna ride that lightning bolt all the way to Stand & Deliver! Bate says with mass and speed on his side, momentum will be theirs! Bate will harness that momentum, he’ll bring home a win for the university!
Chase likes the way Bate’s brain works. Duke, you coming? He wouldn’t miss this for the world. Though he doesn’t look anywhere near as pumped as the rest. The team heads out, will the Big Strong Boi give Von a #TeachableMoment?
Briggs & Jensen talk backstage.
Brooks Jensen feels pretty good, because Kiana James responded to him after three voicemails instead of five this time. Kiana says they’re on their way, but what does Briggs thinks she wants to talk about? He isn’t sure, but whatever it is, they’ll get through it. The sun always comes up tomorrow. Um, okay. The ladies arrive and Jensen asks if everything is okay. Her message seemed a bit off. Kiana hesitates but Fallon tells her to tell Jensen. “These past few months, I’ve really gotten to know you guys. Especially you, Brooks. And what you guys have is special. I don’t know how to say this, I feel horrible.”
Jensen says it’s okay, she can get it out. Kiana feels horrible… That Briggs & Jensen aren’t part of Stand & Deliver! So she pulled some strings, and she has a match tonight. And if they win, that Triple Threat Tag Team title match becomes a FATAL 4! Fallon says, “What?” Briggs says, “WHAT?!” Jensen can’t believe it! Well hey, Kiana & Fallon are tag team champions, the boys should be tag champs with them! Fallon can’t stand- Surprises! Briggs knows that, but he loves ’em! Kiana just knocked this one out of the park! They could go to Stand & Deliver! Jensen cannot believe Kiana! Fallon can’t, either. Briggs says yes, because it’s unbelievable!
Jensen says first they’ll win tonight, then go to Stand & Deliver and become the NEW NXT Tag Team Champions! Group hug! Fallon is not happy that Kiana backed out of the truth. But will her keeping that buried only come back to haunt her?
Tyler Bate w/ Chase U VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!
The Big Strong Boi stepped up when Chase U needed him and won big in that Great Debate. But will he win even bigger against vicious Von? Or will Bate fail to stand and deliver before Saturday?
The bell rings and Bate circles with Von. Fans rally behind the Big Strong Boi and Bate headlocks. Von powers up, Bate holds on, but Von powers out. They RAM shoulders, but Bate DROPKICKS! Von comes back to BOOT Bate down! Fans boo while Bate sits up in a daze. Von pushes Bate down to drop an elbow! Von then stalks Bate, drags him up, and choke grips to trophy lift! Von DROPS Bate, and then soaks up the heat. Von waits on Bate to sit up, and he KICKS him in the side! Fans boo, Thea & Chase coach up Bate, but Von clamps on a neck wrench. Fans rally, Bate endures, and Bate fights up to his feet.
Bate pries free, throws a HEADBUTT into the ribs, then fires off body shots! Von shoves, Bate rebounds to sunset flip! Von stays up, but Bate avoids the elbow drop! Bate runs, but into a LARIAT! Von covers, TWO! Von snarls but the fans rally for Bate. Von puts Bate in a corner, clotheslines, and then throws back elbows. Fans obo but Von whips Bate out to throw him back into the corner. And then a BIG clothesline in the corner! Von mocks Bate, fans taunt Von. Von whips Bate corner to corner, runs in, but only gets buckles! Bate goes to another corner. Von runs in but into a BOOT! Bate runs to UPPERCUT! And UPPERCUT! And UPPERCUT!

Von whips Bate but Duke holds ropes down, and Bate FLIES out onto Stone!!
Fans fire up, Bate is fired up, he high-fives Duke but Duke doesn’t seem to care. Bate gets in the ring, dodges a boot and rebounds, LARIAT! Bate hurries up the corner, to SKY TWISTER! Cover, Bate wins!
Winner: Tyler Bate, by pinfall
Chase U is on a roll! Will all this help them hold onto the school? Wait, The Schism speaks! “Attention students of Chase University!” Joe Gacy stands at a podium with Jagger Reed, Ava Raine & Rip Fowler by his side. “As of this Saturday, The Schism will be in control.” Reed says, “The curriculum is changing. Time to open your minds to a different way of looking at the world through a different lens. Under the Schism’s tree.” The students wear yellow masks and Ava hands out a quiz. “Deprogramming starts now.” Rip says they don’t need to worry. There will be a place for delinquents in the Chase U Memorial Detention Hall.
Ava says at Stand & Deliver, “the world of Chase U will fall when The Schism takes over.” Gacy says, “When the bell rings, a new class begins.” Will The Schism graduate from a cult into a college?
Roxanne Perez is here!
She’s backstage and asks if Shawn Michaels is at gorilla. No, he moved to his office. Okay, she’ll go there. Thanks! The former(?) NXT Women’s Champion is here, but why? What business will she have with the boss?
NXT returns and Roxie knocks on HBK’s door. He welcomes her in and asks how she’s feeling. Does he have a minute to talk? Sure. What is it? Well, as of this afternoon, the doctors cleared her to return to action! Oh. That’s great to hear. Yeah! So they told her that basically, after all the tests, it was a mix of physical exhaustion and stress. It was all through the roof that night, but the only thing on her mind is her title and Stand & Deliver. Well, HBK wants to be the first to say that it is a relief to hear Roxie is better. And more importantly, that the doctors found out why she fainted like that.
But the problem is, Stand & Deliver… He isn’t sure. Her health is the priority right now. And he doesn’t think defending the title in a Ladder Match is the best thing for her right now. They can crown a new champion at Stand & Deliver, get a few matches under Roxie’s belt, and then right after Stand & Deliver, Roxie is the first to get a title match. Oh… Roxie won’t lie, being NXT Women’s Champion has been unlike anything she’s ever experienced. Saying you want to be champion and being champion day in and day out are completely different. But Roxie does struggle with anxiety.
This year has been incredible, but when you accomplish your dreams so fast, you wonder, ‘What do I do now? Is it all downhill from here? Did I peak at 21?” And then that anxiety goes insane! See, that right there! HBK knows Roxie’s all better physically, but mentally, emotionally, she’s just unsure. Roxie, you’re 21 years old! You’ve got a long, wonderful career in front of you. There will be other Stand & Deliver events. Will there? She can’t think like that! Did HBK think like that? WrestleMania was the most important night of the year for him, and she knows that he never had the mindset of, “Well, there’s always next year.”
HBK took it as “There’s here and now,” and he stole the show every time! That’s what Roxie wants to do! Roxie’s anxiety is crippling, but she can’t run away from it. She has to confront it, and that means facing it head-on. The only way she wins that battle is by climbing the ladder, winning back her title, the title she never lost. So please! Let her do this! Let her do this for her and for everyone who struggles with what she struggles with! To show them that they don’t have to be a prisoner of anxiety! Please, HBK! HBK says fine, but she has to get tests, meet with doctors, and follow-ups! Okay, yes! Thank you!
HBK says Roxie deserves the right to defend her title at Stand & Deliver. She’s in the match. Thank you so much, HBK! She’ll get all that for him! Okay, but now he’s gonna have a nervous breakdown. “Roxanne, you can beat this. Good luck.” Roxie thanks him again, then heads out. Will the Prodigy be able to overcome her biggest challenge mentally to then overcome the biggest challenge physically?
Valentina Feroz VS Elektra Lopez!
The Brazilian sparkplug has been doing things fair and square, even as La Madrina told her it was pointless. But Feroz made sure Lopez couldn’t cheat and that cost her against Sol Ruca. Will Feroz show Lopez she can win the right way? Or is it true that nice people finish last?
The bell rings and the two rush each other. Lopez knees low, fires off forearms and a HEADBUTT! Lopez whips Feroz to a corner and ELBOWS her! Lopez then shouts at Feroz for messing with her. Feroz blocks the buckle bump, and she fires back with forearms! Lopez staggers, blocks a kick and CLUBS the leg to then sweep the other leg! Lopez gets the leg to SMASH the knee into the mat! Fans rally for Feroz but Lopez puts on a standing toehold. Feroz endures, kicks with her free leg, but Lopez drops an elbow on the bad leg! Feroz hooks with the good leg but Lopez fights that off to pull on the bad leg.
Fans rally, Feroz fights, and she rolls with Lopez. Lopez shifts to drop another elbow, but Feroz dodges! Feroz dropkicks Lopez down, covers, ONE! Feroz goes to a corner, Lopez runs in but Feroz dodges. Feroz arm-drags Lopez, drags her up to arm-drag again, and then whips to run and SPEAR! Fans fire up, Feroz covers, TWO! Lopez is hanging tough but Feroz fires up. Fans rally, Feroz aims from a corner and goes up. Feroz leaps, into Lopez’s arms! Lopez swings Feroz around into the ELEKTRIC SHOCK!! Cover, Lopez wins!
Winner: Elektra Lopez, by pinfall
Lopez wins, but the irony? She won fair and square! Did Feroz win the moral battle? Or does only the physical battle matter?
Eddy Thorpe speaks.
“Music is celebration. When I make music, I can feel the spirit of my people behind me. It is my honor to lead the way. Like an alpha wolf, I will conquer this territory and everything in it.” Thorpe is ready to level up, his NXT debut is next!
Eddy Thorpe VS Myles Borne!
The heritage and history of the Native American people, the fire and energy of progress, the Alpha Wolf looks to be the hybrid that paths the way to the future! Will Thorpe be the future of NXT?
The bell rings and Thorpe ties up with Borne. They are in a deadlock, Borne wrenches an arm but the fans rally behind Thorpe. Thorpe rolls, wrenches and wristlocks.

Fans rally, Thorpe brings Borne up but Borne wrenches out. Borne waistlocks, Thorpe elbows free but Borne kicks low. Borne swings, into a SAIDO! Fans fire up as Thorpe tries again, TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, Thorpe wins!
Winner: Eddy Thorpe, by pinfall
Borne gave him a good, hard fight, but it wasn’t enough to stop the Alpha Wolf. Thorpe says he’s coming for everything, will he get everything he wants in NXT?
Pretty Deadly checks back in.
Kit says what a night of headlines! Elton agrees. An impressive debut win for Thorpe. But it isn’t all smiles, as they’re here on the Grayson Waller Effect set. Waller VS Gargano is far more than personal. They say never mess with a man’s family, and that front yard brawl sure gave a new meaning to the term “viral moment.” Gargano has now vowed to do everything in his power to get revenge on Waller, and he wants this as an unsanctioned match. Will Waller sign the agreement? Would either Kit or Elton do it? Would you sign the contract, knowing what is coming for you? This could be a match so brutal, it’ll take YEARS off your career!
Kit says he would! Only to defend Elton’s honor. Oh, Kit is so selfless and brave. That is his middle name: Kit Bravery Wilson! Elton’s here for it. And stay tuned for more Pretty Deadly Talk as we continue towards Stand… and Deliver!
Backstage interview with Gallus.
McKenzie is with Mark Coffey & Wolfgang, and says that while we saw the end result of everything that happened at the bar last week, what led to it? Mark says it was obvious they’re not interior decorators, and Wolfgang admits, they were pretty banged up after that fight. Then at this point, it is a Triple Threat for Stand & Deliver. But then, why’re they willing to defend against not just one, not just two, but up to three teams with this deal made on behalf of Briggs & Jensen? You’re asking them, “Why?” They thought, “Why not?” The Creeds made a good case. Tony D & Stacks made a good case. And Gallus is all about equal opportunity.
If Briggs & Jensen do win tonight, then the more the merrier! Four, six, eight guys, it doesn’t matter. Well, Wolfie does love a good fight. How confident is Gallus that they’ll walk out of Stand & Deliver still NXT Tag Team Champions? Wolfgang admits that Markus likes to wind Wolfgang up, likes to get under his skin. But they’re the champs, heading into the biggest show of the year, against a collection of guys all ready to fight. They don’t need that much riling up. The odds don’t matter, at Stand & Deliver, the Creeds, The Don & Stacks, and should Briggs & Jensen make it there, they’ll all find out the hard way that it is #GallusBoysOnTop!
NXT Women’s Championship Last Chance Qualifier: Indi Hartwell VS Sol Ruca VS Ivy Nile!
Tiffany Stratton, Zoey Stark and Lyra Valkyria won their way in, and now that Roxie is physically cleared to compete, so is she! Who will win the final spot to make the Ladder Match a Furious 6 Way for the gold?

#IndiWrestling is going to Hollywood! Will Indi finally have the top title? But speaking of, here’s Zoey Stark! And Lyra Valkyria! And Gigi Dolin! And of course, Tiffany Stratton! But also, Roxanne Perez! Roxie holds up the belt now, but who will bring it down from the sky in Hollywood?
Pretty Deadly checks in again.
They climb up a step ladder for this segment, and says Indi makes good on the Last Chance match. The field is now set. Six women put their bodies on the line in a match to crown a “new” women’s champion. Well, Roxie the plucky prodigy is back. And since she never lost the title, this becomes a title defense now. Who does Elton see coming away with the gold? Oh, so glad Kit asked. Because Elton recently had an epiphany. Los Angeles, the city of stars, Hollywood, and there’s only one woman suited for the City of Angels! #BuffBarbie herself! The most glamorous superstar in NXT, Tiffany Stratton! Yes girl!
Kit says this could be a show-stealer! If the fans wanna find out, join us on Saturday for Stand… And Deliver!
Grayson Waller speaks.
Via a Twitter video, captioned “Will I or won’t I?” Waller calls out “Johnny Cosplay.” He’s so close to finally getting what he wanted: him and Waller in an Unsanctioned match. In fact, Waller’s on his way inside right now. Waller had security do one last sweep of the perimeter, and because he knows Gargano’s “a sneaky little hobbit,” they’ll also be all around ringside. But Waller hopes Gargano tunes in. “Because you never know what I’m gonna say.” The 21st Century Success Story is trolling until the very end. Will he sign on the dotted line so that he and Gargano can go to the extreme?
NXT presents Prime Target: Bron Breakker VS Carmelo Hayes.
The NXT Champion says, “This match is like destiny. The youngest main event in WrestleMania Weekend history. Carmelo and I, we came in in the same class, these two alpha males that are just undeniable.” The challenger asks Bron, “Do you know what it takes to be a king? I don’t think you do. Heavy lies the head that wears the crown.” Melo is the 2021 Breakout Star, a winner of NXT WarGames (alongside Bron), the combined longest reigning NXT North American Champion, the one who unified the North American and Cruiserweight titles, and “HIM.”
Melo says this has been a whole different training camp to get ready for this match. He isn’t just doing his high-flying, his mat wrestling, he is covering every aspect. He hits the ropes harder, he takes less steps, he makes less mistakes. He worked out for four hours, partied for three, but skipped the afterparty. Trick Williams couldn’t believe it, but Melo has to put in the work to take on Bron Breakker. Trick and the others understood, and Melo let them go on. Melo didn’t need to go, he’ll celebrate when this is finished, when he has won, and he is at the top of the mountain. The job is not done, it is far from it.
Training montage as Melo pushes himself. But Bron chuckles. It’s funny because he’s been doing that and not going to parties since the first day. He works with weights two and a half hours a day. He runs the ropes another two and a half hours a day. Because that is what it takes to be champion, to be “The Guy.” Bron knows people think matches are won and loss in the ring or in the weight room. But Bron is of the opinion that they’re won and loss in the film room. There is nothing better than to watch film. Melo is fast, he will try to get in Bron’s head, gas him out, and get Bron playing Melo’s game.
You can take Bron to the deep water, but he’s been there so many times, it has become his home. Bron has carried NXT on his back for almost two years now. The NXT title is everything to him, this brand is everything to him. He respect everyone who has come before, but there is a difference. He is the most dominant of all time. This has been the path since Vengeance Day, and now, in LA, Melo vows to take that weight off Bron’s shoulders when he knocks Bron’s head off and takes the title. Melo is Him, and the kingdom of NXT is his, and he wants his effing crown!
Bron says that this one is a bit more special, it means a bit more to him. Fans are torn, but Melo says Bron doesn’t understands. Bron doesn’t want this like Melo wants this! Bron doesn’t wanna go as far as Melo is willing to go! But Bron says when he gets going with that 4.3 speed, hits those Steiner-lines, Melo won’t know where he is. Melo says at Stand & Deliver, he takes everything from Bron because everything is his! Melo is HIM! Bron has promised and continues to promise he will make it through as champion, but who will have the Hollywood ending to their story?
Isla Dawn & Alba Fyre speak.
The Firekeeper says, “When the sun goes down at Stand & Deliver, a darkness will rise over NXT.” The Wicked Witch says, “The eternal horror of gullible fools will not be contained.” The fate of Kiana James and Fallon Henley has already been sealed. Two spirits in turmoil do not deserve to be tag team champions. Fyre and Isla bond together to connect their past and forge their destiny. This Saturday, they burn their opposition tot he ground. And from the ashes, their message will spread far and wide. “It is always darkest before the Dawn, and where there’s smoke, there’s Fyre.” Will nothing stop this devious duo from ascending to the throne?
Hank Walker VS Drew Gulak w/ Charlie Dempsey!
The blue collar working man was already in the 20 Man Battle Royal, but so was the Philly Stretcher. Their fight that literally spilled out of the ring now returns to it, will the student avenge himself against his arrogant teacher? Or will Gulak show Hank he still doesn’t belong?
NXT returns as Gulak makes his entrance, the Son of the Gentleman Villain by his side. The bell rings and Hank rushes in! Gulak dodges, headlocks, but Hank slips out to hammerlock.

Gulak staggers up, but Hank hits a MONKEY FLIP, into an ARMBAR! Gulak flails, grapevines a leg and drags Hank into a camel clutch! But Hank slips out to put Gulak in the camel clutch! Gulak powers his way back and gets a leg, STRETCH MUFFLER!
But Hank trips Gulak to put on the STRETCH MUFFLER! And he lifts Gulak off the mat with it! Fans fire up, but Gulak kicks free. Gulak trips Hank, has the heel hook, and he turns Hank over for a HALF CRAB! Hank endures, powers Gulak down and gets the HALF CRAB for himself! Gulak endures, crawls forward, and he has the ROPEBREAK! Hank lets go quickly, Gulak goes to the apron but Hank drags him up. But Gulak HOTSHOTS Hank away! Gulak slides in for a NECKBREAKER! Then a knee drop! And another! And another! Gulak snarls but fans boo. Gulak drags Hank up and whips him to a corner.
Gulak runs in to clothesline! Gulak shoves Hank out to then BLINDSIDE LARIAT! Fans boo but Gulak tells Hank he doesn’t belong. Gulak goes up the corner, and FLYING LARIATS! Cover, TWO!

Hank endures, fans rally, and he pops out the back! Hank gets the legs again, wheelbarrows, into the ARMBAR!! Hank pulls on the arm but Gulak clasps hands. Hank powers it open!! Gulak flails, fans are thunderous, but Gulak scrambles over! ROPEBREAK!!
Hank lets go in frustration while fans boo. Hank hurries after Gulak, they’re in the ropes, the ref is busy with Gulak and Dempsey CLOBBERS Hank! Gulak cradles, Gulak wins!!
Winner: Drew Gulak, by pinfall
Fans boo as Gulak steals that one! Hank was about to beat Gulak at his own game, but Gulak needed the assist from his new friend! Will Hank get payback the next time they meet?
Pretty Deadly checks in again.
They’re having a couple mimosas at the bar and Kit says, “Ever since we joined the division, the tag team scene has been a bustling hive of competition.” Elton says that at Stand & Deliver, the NXT Tag Team Championships will be contested in a Triple Threat match. The Creed Brothers have got their mojo back, baby. #AustinPowers. Elton still can’t stand them, but he has to admit, Julius & Brutus have more personality then say this bar rag. The champions, Gallus, well, are the champions. Let’s move on, please. And the new team, Tony D’Angelo & “Stacks” Channing Lorenzo, show family loyalty.
Imagine if The Don & The Underboss win. Kit would love it! Or, speaking of love, Briggs & Jensen do have the opportunity to make this a Fatal 4 Way. Could you imagine if the foursome of Briggs, Jensen, Kiana & Fallon were all tag team champions together at Stand & Deliver? Aw, so magical. Such a perfect fairytale ending. But that’s just the thing about fairytales: there’s always a witch, or witches, right behind. Nice one. Isla & Alba are dangerous duo, and if they have their way, it’ll be a sinister Stand & Deliver. The fairytale could be of heartbreak and tragedy. So see you Saturday afternoon for Stand… And Deliver!

Fans rally, the ref reprimands, and Jensen fights his way around. Jensen stands, throws body shots, and is free. Stacks grabs at the pants, Jensen throws elbows! Stacks catches Jensen to a BACKBREAKER! And then a BLINDSIDE LARIAT! Tag to Tony, he drags Jensen up and facelocks for some hockey scrum shots! Fans rally but Jensen drops to his knees. Tony DECKS Jensen, then drags him back up. Tony whips Jensen hard into the corner, tags Stacks, and then Tony scoops. BACKBREAKER, and Stacks leaps in, ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO!! Jensen survives but Stacks clamps on with a chinbar and armlock.
Fans rally, Jensen fights up, and Stacks shifts to a headlock. Jensen throws body shots, powers out, but heads collide! Both men fall over and fans rally up. Stacks and Jensen crawl, hot tag to Briggs! Britts rallies on Stacks & Tony! Briggs DECKS Stacks, runs and BOOTS Tony! Stacks runs in but into a SIDEWALK SLAM! SPLASH for Tony! Briggs is all fired up and the fans are with him. Tag to Jensen, and Jensen goes up. Briggs Electric Chair Lifts Stacks, WHEEL KICK DOOMSDAY DEVICE! Jensen covers, Tony barrels through Briggs to break it!! Fans are thunderous as all four men are down!
Fallon & Kiana coach up their boys, Briggs and Tony stare down. They fire up and stand to throw hands! Fans fire up, Briggs gets the edge, but Tony dodges the boot to DECK Briggs out of the ring! Tony tags in off Stacks, then helps Stacks to go after Jensen. They double whip, to BADA BING, BADA BOOM!! Cover, Tony & Stacks win!
Winners: Tony D’Angelo & Channing Lorenzo, by pinfall (DENIES Briggs & Jensen a spot in the NXT Tag Team Championship match)
The Triple Threat stays a Triple Threat, and Stacks says it’s The D’Angelo Boys On Top! Will that be how it goes in Hollywood?
As for the others, Fallon grabs the mic. Fallon knows this isn’t a good time, but this has gone on long enough! There is something Kiana needs to tell Jensen! Kiana says that’s true. There is something she should tell him. But she’d rather just show him. Jensen is confused, but Kiana gives him a kiss! Jensen is over the moon, and Fallon still can’t believe it! Is there no end to the back-up plans Kiana has to cover her bases?
Grayson Waller heads to the ring.
Security is at the ready, just as he said. Fans boo as the 21st Century Success Story walks down the ramp, and then he goes to Vic Joseph at the announce desk. Waller takes the contract, looks it over, and then grabs a pen. Waller says, “Once I’m done, whatever happens in this match, I want to do it in front of you (Vic). Whatever happens to your boy is on your hands.” Waller takes the contract into the ring, and gets a mic. “Hey! You flops better watch my back, because Gargano’s known for his cheap shots. And he could come from anywhere, right?” Fans boo as Waller continues.
“I’m staring at this paper and… I still can’t believe it. Grayson Waller VS Johnny Gargano, at Stand & Deliver.” Fans taunt Waller, “You Can’t Read!” Waller says Melo VS Bron thinks it’s the main event. But it doesn’t matter when he’s on, Waller’s the REAL main event! Because this is a full circle moment. Two years ago, Waller was trying to stand out in front of the new wave. He was trying to build a relationship with the idiot fans! He was singing, dancing, all the things the fans pretend they don’t like but secretly love. “And then came WarGames. And at the time, I was considered the fourth best member of Team 2.0.”
Fans tell Waller to shut up, but Waller continues. He went out there, he stepped in that cage, and he jumped from the top! He put his body on the line because that was gonna be his “viral moment.” That was gonna be what launched him to superstardom. But he was wrong. “Because at the end of the night, after WarGames, all anyone could talk about was Johnny Wrestling. So two nights later, in a night I know you remember very vividly. You (Johnny Gargano) walked to this ring, and everyone couldn’t wait to hear what you had to say! And because you kissed his ass so much, Shawn Michaels gave you as much time as you wanted!
“But it only took me 30 seconds. I saw my mark and I hit it. And let’s be real, Johnny, you are the biggest mark in this business.” Waller stepped out there, hit Gargano with the chair, and sent Gargano home. Then Waller sent himself into the stratosphere. It’s funny, because Gargano told the world that you should bet on yourself. “And if you wanna talk about the last 15 months, no one has bet on themselves more than Grayson Waller! And if you want proof, my proof is right here! I have the greatest big match superstar in NXT history begging me to kick his ass at Stand & Deliver. Don’t forget that, Johnny: you’re begging me. I’m your golden ticket right now!”
Waller admits, Gargano is the greatest big match superstar in NXT history. Gargano’s done it all. The records, the titles, the matches, the moments. Johnny Gargano IS Mr. NXT. “But just like your idol, Mr. WrestleMania, Shawn Michaels, you are gonna lose at Stand & Deliver. You bleed black ‘n’ gold, lad? I bleed green. 15 months ago, I used you to put myself on the map. And at Stand & Deliver, I use you one more time-” GARGANO IS HERE?! But Waller told him not to show up or he wouldn’t sign the contract! Waller is ready for a fight, he dares Gargano to come for this fight, but where is Gargano?
HE’S THE CAMERAMAN!! Gargano sets the camera down, takes off the hat and mask, and he rushes Waller! Security finally realizes and they rush in! Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but security does its job in separating them. But then Waller and Gargano get loose to fire off hands again! Waller bails, Gargano pursues, and they COLLIDE! Waller tumbles over steel steps, Gargano goes after him, and the scrapping continues at the ramp! Fans rally behind Gargano but Waller TACKLES him on the stage! Security pulls them apart again, but Gargano gets free to LEAP onto the pile!
Fans fire up but the two are separated again. Johnny Wrestling and the viral villain are ready to stand and deliver, but who will be left standing at all in the end?
A great NXT and a great go-home, though still with the usual level of talking for NXT, which is a little too much talking. I do appreciate that Pretty Deadly was inserting themselves all over the show to give their thoughts and predictions. And they were entertaining each segment so it is still fine. Isla & Alba have a good promo to give their thoughts on Fallon & Kiana being at odds. And I’m glad we got Prime Target back since this isn’t NXT 2.0 but “white & gold” era. But none of these really change the math in those matches as I see it. Melo is still the proper choice to win so Bron can move on, and given Fallon & Kiana are so against each other right now, Isla & Alba are definitely taking those titles.
Speaking of that story, the romcom of Jensen and Kiana continues to take some really clever turns that also help tie into other stories. The tag team “main event” of Briggs & Jensen VS Tony & Stacks was a really good match, and it adds to story. Kiana uses the tag match and that public kiss to deflect from Sebastian. At this rate, Kiana is gonna marry Jensen before she tells him about Sebastian. Which honestly, would be a hilarious thing given American pro-wrestling can’t help but have weddings. And this win gives Tony & Stacks the momentum going into the Triple Threat. I’m thinking this all leads to Gallus finding a way to retain the titles.
Opening with the battle royal was the right move, as was making it chaotic like the rest of the North American Championship open challenge segments. Scrypts going after Axiom is good consistency, but I’m pleasantly surprised to see he didn’t stop Axiom from winning. I thought they were gonna put a giant over but nope, we got two Cruiserweights at the end. Also great detail was that the final three were NXT UK alumni (Axiom is A-Kid for anyone who still doesn’t know). And in the end, Axiom finally gets what he wants in getting this title opportunity. If Wes isn’t winning, this is anyone’s game, all of these guys are that great.
Though, I’m not sure we needed Gulak VS Hank here tonight after both men already competed in the battle royal. It was still a great match, with a strong showing from Hank and a classic Heel shenanigan for Gulak to win. But I would’ve waited to make this part of the aftermath episode next Tuesday to help bridge things into the Spring and Summer phases. Meanwhile, Eddy Thorpe has a good TV debut after a string of matches on Level Up. Formerly Karl Fredericks in NJPW as a Young Lion, Thorpe brings those basics and essential moves, but shows he can do the fancier stuff. The Twist ‘n’ Shout swinging neckbreaker is a great finisher, can’t wait to hear its finisher name.
Good match from Feroz and Lopez, and I figured Lopez would win, but I’m surprised Lopez didn’t cheat since that was kinda the whole point of their story. Maybe Feroz points that out to Lopez next week and Lopez starts to see things her way. Good stuff out of Chase U, especially the checked out attitude of Duke Hudson. I think Duke’s assist was meant to screw Bate but it ended up an assist because Bate jumped for the tope. And good promo from The Schism to bum everyone out after Bate’s win. Duke helping screw Chase U over seems a bit obvious but sometimes stories go in the obvious direction.
Roxanne being back before Stand & Deliver is quite the surprise to me. I really thought we were waiting for an Undisputed NXT Women’s Championship story, but I suppose putting that on just a TV special like Spring Breakkin’ isn’t enough. So instead, Roxie makes her return, she champions the fight of mental health and anxiety to still be champion going into Stand & Deliver. I’d somehow lost count, but yeah, a SIX WAY Ladder Match. That is wild, and much like with the North American Championship, I see it as Roxie retaining, or anyone’s guess of a new champion. Indi winning that great Last Chance Triple Threat was a bit of a surprise, but Stand & Deliver could be her good-bye match to NXT. Then she rejoins The Way on Raw in a big moment of some kind.
And speaking of big moment, great final segment with Waller and Gargano. Good promo from Waller showing us that indeed, this is full circle. Waller was honestly good at being a Face back in the days of 205 Live. But even then, there were hints of being arrogant and defying authority, Waller’s come into his own as a Heel, perhaps one the top Heel at this point. I thought Waller was gonna beat up Vic since he was to have Gargano banned from the building, but Waller said it himself, Gargano became “Johnny Cosplay” pulling off the covered up cameraman disguise. Great brawl, it was a wash so no one has the math behind them, but I would think that with Gargano on Raw now, Waller will use the fact this is Unsanctioned/No Disqualification to win and just have all the Heel heat.
My Score: 8.7/10
