Six Man Tag: Imperium VS Kushida & ???
When NXT UK’s dominating force invaded NXT USA, it was interfering with the Time Splitter’s schedule. Then after a quick brawl between them and Kushida, a challenge was issued. Alexander Wolfe, Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner stand united, but who has Kushida recruited to this sudden brand warfare? It’s… Breezango!

Another great NXT right here, with both hours being equally strong again! And I really like the changes to the set, such as putting commentary off to the opposite side of the ramp and having a balcony right up above them. That was a great way to debut it, too, with Undisputed Era walking out to view the fans. And I can’t wait for the day that the balcony is used in some form of Falls Count Anywhere match, because you know it will be. Lee VS Dijakovic III was rightfully the best of the bunch, and it was great for Lee to finally win. And of course Lee wins so that we can have the true tiebreaker in their fourth match overall! And that match should totally be as a #1 Contender’s match, it’s only logical. Dakota Kai did great in her return, though obviously fast to not risk her legs.
Rhea Ripley also did great in her match in the second hour, but I’m sensing Rhea might be leaning back to Heel just so she can still go after the NXT Women’s Championship regardless of who wins next week. Dakota would be in the running if Shayna wins, but even Candice VS Rhea would make for a good match at WarGames III. The Street Fight match was amazing! That was almost TakeOver worthy, but definitely contender’s match worthy. And how great it was for Riddle to win, and then give Adam Cole the what for. Their match happening next week is making that episode feel like a pseudo TakeOver in itself! And we all know why: it is to counter the AEW TV debut. The NXT Championship, NXT Women’s Championship and NXT Tag Team Championships are all on the line in the first actual two hours on TV episode, with limited commercials so that we get a touch closer to the WWE Network runtime. It’s all going to be really great.
Lorcan & Burch are back on a roll and that is great. While Oney still wants the Cruiserweight Championship, it would be great to finally see him and Burch have tag titles on NXT where their run began. Grimes VS Mendoza was great, and certainly the right move to follow up Grimes crushing Sean Maluta. Grimes of course wins to keep his story going, and this has to lead to at least a North American Championship shot in the future. And then we get a great Six Man Tag, and while I wasn’t sure who to expect to join Kushida, it was a natural move to go with Breezango. Fans love Breezango, Breezango is working to show they can be serious threats in the Tag Division, and it works to anger Imperium since they hate even remotely comedic gimmicks. The Faces win to show Imperium isn’t quite ready as a unit, but Walter attacking was also perfect. He and Kushida have to be facing off at some point, and maybe even during the big episode next week to further hype it up.
My Score: 8.9/10

PLAY BY PLAY
Ilja Dragunov is here!
The Czar of NXT UK made his shocking return last week to close out NXT, and he’s here again to open this week’s! Fans are fired up to see him as he gets the mic. They chant, “Welcome Back!” and he says, “Last time I was in NXT, I conquered an unbeatable machine to become champion! I walked into this place like it’s a coliseum. I suffered, I struggled, I endured, but I succeeded in front of all of you with a heart like a gladiator!” Fans cheer that! Dragunov was armed with nothing but a burning will and an inhuman perseverance. He became a Czar, because pain has always been his best friend.
Dragunov returned again to repeat history and achieve his destiny! One more time, he will beat an unbeatable machine to reclaim gold! Fans cheer that, too! Dragunov says this time, his name is not GUNTHER. This time, it’s BRON BREAKKER! But wait! Here comes JD McDonagh! The Irish Ace has a mic of his own, and he tells Ilja that the fans don’t know him as well as JD does. JD knows that Dragunov is “a sneaky, dirty little rat.” JD isn’t surprised Dragunov followed JD to America. Well, JD, Dragunov seems to remember beating JD and forcing him to leave NXT UK. JD admits, that is right, that did happen. But that’s not the end of the story, is it?
No, no, no, because what happens next? Dragunov’s body was so broken up, so battered, that he had to give up the title anyway! JD joins Dragunov in the ring as fans boo. JD asks how the ankle’s doing. Dragunov better hope JD doesn’t get to find out. Fans chant, “He Still Won!” as JD gets in the ring. JD makes one thing clear to Dragunov: “This is not your time. This is MY time. So if I was you, I’d stay just exactly where you’ve been these past few months: on the sidelines. Because if I need to stop you one more time, just once more, I swear to GOD, I will end your career.” But that only seems to pump Dragunov up.
And wait! Now BRON is making his way out! The NXT Champion has his own mic and says, “With everything going on, I was wondering when you were gonna show up. Welcome to NXT, Ilja. You’re a warrior. But with all due respect, my man…” Bron gets in the ring as the fans bark. “This NXT Championship isn’t going anywhere.” JD has Bron stop right there. Bron, use your brain for once! JD Is the #1 Contender to the title! And he just had a great idea. Fans chant ‘TRIPLE THREAT!” but JD says, “Do not make me laugh; I earned my shot.” But maybe these two Alpha Males should beat the snot out of each other, and then after that, JD takes his shot.
Fans boo but Bron says, “Really? You really think we’re gonna fall for that? After all the props I’ve given you for having such a high ring IQ…” But Bron says he’ll help JD out. Bron is champion, JD is #1 contender, but Ilja never lost his UK Championship. So the way Bron sees it, if his math is correct, which it always is… “You have a 33 and a third percent chance o’ winnin’!” Fans cheer the “Breakker” Math. Bron says there’s three of them, so make it a TRIPLE THREAT! JD is the only one upset by this. Bron tells them he’ll see them at HALLOWEEN HAVOC! Bron holds up the belt in a recreation of last week. Will the Big Booty Nephew make sure the numbers spell disaster for JD & Dragunov?
A brawl is going on backstage!
Gallus and the good ol’ boys aren’t waiting for later! They’re fighting NOW! Security does their best to break this up, but that’s easier said than done! Will these teams even wait for the main event’s Pub Rules Match!?
Toxic Attraction walks ‘n’ talks to gorilla.
Mandy Rose knows Alba Fyre is watching, so she tells her that Fallon Henley is about to find out what happens when you cross “The Baddest Bitch in the Game.” So Fyre can put down her bat and start taking some notes. Will the Toxic Goddess sting the Cowgirl and check her off the list? Or is Mandy already going to get burned?
The Schism speaks.
Joe Gacy tells Cameron Grimes, “we tried to show you that the solution to all your problems lies with us in the shade under the Schism’s tree. You refused our embrace. Now the same limbs that reached out will bind you in helplessness.” Jagger Reed says Grimes has been warned. Grimes brought this upon himself. It didn’t have to be this way! “But to change the world for the better, we have to make an example out of you.” Rip Fowler says, “The wrath of The Schism is imminent.” And Grimes, when you wake up tomorrow, both physically and spiritually decimated, just know that as The Schism continues to grow, Grimes will be right back where he started: alone.
Mandy Rose w/ Toxic Attraction VS Fallon Henley!
The Toxic Goddess has held onto her title by hook AND by crook for almost a year now, perhaps even getting lucky here and there. But with Fyre blazing a trail up to her throne, can Mandy focus on Fallon? Or will this Rose’s thorns not matter when trampled by some Cowgirl boots?

The Toxic Goddess turns things around in a blink of an eye, and she conquers another filly. Mandy gets a mic to call out Fyre! “I know you’re jealous that I conquered two continents and unified two titles while you were too busy throwing another log on a fire. You may keep the fire going, but you’re looking at the woman who starts them. So this is your last chance.” But then Fyre tells Mandy from the tron that while Mandy is Women’s Champion, Fyre doesn’t do verbal warnings. Fyre is more of a visual person. Fyre has a fire to light the words, “AND NEW!” Mandy is afraid, is she about to have a meltdown against Fyre?
Apollo Crews speaks.
“It is said that revenge is an act of passion, but vengeance is an act of justice. Last week, Grayson Waller got a small taste of what vengeance means. He tried to permanently blind my vision. But in his match, my mere presence blinded him from having an opportunity at the North American Championship. Everything still has a haze to it, but one image sticks out crystal clear.” Apollo envisions Grayson Waller with red eyes! “See you on the other side, Grayson. Keep an eye out, Grayson, because I’m not done with you yet, b*tch!”
Dragunov crosses paths with Xyon Quinn backstage.
Czar, meet The X-Factor. Quinn’s heard a lot about Dragunov. All the hype for nothing, eh? Uh, thanks? Quinn says “In the Book of Xyon, you couldn’t even carry all the weight that’s needed to be champion, let alone get a second chance.” Quinn’s yet to get his first chance to “carry the ball.” Maybe because if he did, no one would take the title from him. Xyon Quinn, right? Dragunov’s also heard a lot about him! Just look at him. Unlimited potential, but a total mental moron. Quinn says Dragunov can’t carry the burden of being a champion, but to Dragunov, no one will ever even call Quinn a champion. But we’ll see who’s right. The ball is in your court, Quinn.

Lee seems even more deflated than Tony. Lee wanted to earn the spot in the match, but it seems that drop toehold did the damage. Will Lee just have to accept this and fight to earn that North American Championship?
Backstage interview with Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams.
McKenzie asks the former North American Champion how he feels that Wes Lee now has an equal shot at the title. Melo says he doesn’t care about Lee. Go ask Lee how he feels after Melo & Trick put his head in a locker and slamming it shut. But then Oro Mensah walks over to introduce himself. Trick, Melo, it is Oro’s pleasure meeting them. Oro looks forward to facing Melo, Wes, and whoever else qualifies for the ladder match. Melo knows who Oro is. He respects the drip. They can hang out, put Oro’s face on a shirt or something, but at Halloween Havoc, make no mistake, it’s every man for themselves, playboy.
Oro takes off the sunglasses to get serious as he says, “Looking forward to it.” Melo & Trick head out, but will The A Champion still become a champion with the competition stacking up?
It’s A Day in the Life of Pretty Deadly.
AKA “A Day in the Life of YOUR NXT Tag Team Champions.” Elton Prince 7 Kit Wilson, the “tastiest snacks in the whole universe.” To maintain their physiques, it looks like they rise at 4 AM to hit the gym, but they don’t.

They always make sure to take a few extra minutes to make sure they look ravishing.
At 2 PM, they’re almost ready to go. They take an hour each to brush each other’s magnificent hair. Then the stop for a quick cup of tea, and then they hit the gym. When they work out, they don’t lift weights. They’re not animals. They’re works of art! They are the yin to each other’s yang, using each other as the equipment. Then after training, they bask in the wonderfulness of each other. Two to three hours of appreciating what makes them the greatest tag team in NXT history, and two of the most handsome creatures to ever walk the earth. #YesBoy.

Backstage interview with Grayson Waller.
McKenzie asks if Waller saw Apollo’s “vision.” Of course he did! You think he’s pacing around for cardio? Apollo isn’t Naz-tra-dumbass, though! You mean Nostradamus? Yeah, whatever! Did you see what Waller’s eyes looked like in that vision? Waller can’t let that happen to his beautiful emerald green eyes! And if you look closely enough, you can see there’s just a speck of sky blue in them. Do you know how rare that is? But y’know what color they aren’t? RED. If he’s so nervous, then he can just stay home next week.
And what? Deprive the fans of the second episode of The Grayson Waller Effect? He already has Roxanne Perez and Cora Jade booked as guests! Those two in the ring together, it’s gonna be fire! But Waller says he’ll just get extra security. No way that vision comes true with extra security! No stress, he’s Grayson Waller.

Chase U forever! Chase now opens things to questions from the press. Dave has a question: How confident is Chase going into his match, having never beaten Von Wagner before?
“Who the **** have you ever beaten, Dave?! You think that was a five star question!?” Has Dave ever even gotten in the ring? When Chase punches Von, he’ll be thinking of Dave’s stupid, smug face! Now THAT is a #TeachableMoment! But will Chase be the one to fail the test against vicious Von?
Nathan Frazer speaks.
“This isn’t the first time I’ve been tied at one-all. When I was playing soccer, I was always the guy that my team turned to when we needed to pull ahead. Me and Axiom, we’re all square, and headed into extra time in the decider. But now, the stakes are even higher: a place in the NXT North American Championship Ladder Match at Halloween Havoc. With everything level in a Cup Final, and the minutes ticking down, every player on the field tightens up. But that is when I’m at my most outrageous and dangerous. The ball came over my head, and I volleyed it to the goal from like 30 yards to propel us to the championship.
“I’m sure Axiom is gonna pull out moves that we’ve never seen before. But so am I. This is the biggest match of our careers. We’re gonna empty our playbooks, because it’s win or go home. And I just got the ball with the clock ticking down and the game on the line.” Will the British Prodigy score a game-winning goal? Or will he be denied his chance at gold?
Ilja Dragunov VS Xyon Quinn!
The Czar is back in a big way! He’ll be part of a Triple Threat at Halloween Havoc, against a great rival in JD McDonagh and a great champion in Bron Breakker. But will he prove Xyon isn’t either of those things in this return match? Or will UNBESIEGBAR fall to “The X-Factor” of NXT?

NXT hears from Wendy Choo and Lash Legend.
“When I hear Lash Legend speak, it’s like listening to nails on a chalkboard. I don’t apologize for sticking up for myself. And I’m not letting Lash Legend and her huge ego interrupt my ego.” Lash says she has no problems with how Wendy dresses, does her hair or anything like that. “You do you, boo.” But when Lash has something to say, you get up out the way. It doesn’t matter if you’re Wendy Choo, Doja Cat, Beyoncé, Lizzo, you move! Buh-bye! Wendy says Lash thinks she can pick on her. But why? Cuz she’s smaller? Not as loud? Not as obnoxious? Well, that last one is impossible.

If Wendy wants to see this next one coming, no problem there. Wendy’s face can kiss the heel of Lash’s boot again. Mwah. Wendy says she gets it.

NOTHING. Because Wendy’s gonna shut up the biggest mouth in NXT history!
Lash says get Wendy’s bed, hug pillow and nightlight, because she’s putting Wendy to bed, OKAY~? But just who is going to take a three second nap at the end of their match?

Sanga heads out, and Xyon enters in. Quincy wants him to hold on. Remember that talk they had last week? Quincy watched Quinn’s match, and that X-Factor thing Quinn keeps talking about… Yeah, Quincy just doesn’t see it. Teehee, laters.
Quinn’s even more upset now. Will he look to ruin Quincy’s good times for his honest opinion?

Those titles are coming home with them soon enough. “You guys can’t be serious.” Toxic Attraction walk over and Jacy says Stark & Lyons are nowhere near ready for their titles. Uh, their titles? Didn’t Gigi & Jacy lose? Oh yeah, they did! So those are NOT their titles.
Gigi says those titles look good on them, not on Lyons & Stark. Ew, could you imagine? Mandy says Lyons & Stark should just shut up right now, cuz it’s 3v2. Oh, really? You think they’re scared?

Well, not for long as Mark ROCKS Jensen. Wolfgang bumps Briggs off buckles, the hands fly more, but Jensen throws body shots. Wolfgang shoves Briggs out, he takes Briggs’ rope and LASHES Jensen! Mark goes out after Briggs to CLUB him down! Wolfgang digs his boots in on Jensen while Mark throws more hands.
Wolfgang fishhooks Jensen so he can watch Mark throw hands on Briggs. Mark grabs a trash can lid, but Briggs kicks him first. Briggs gets a trash can lid now, but Mark kicks back. Both men stagger, and Briggs CHUCKS the can at Mark’s head! Down goes Markus while Wolfgang CHOKES Jensen! Wolfgang stomps Jensen but Briggs CLUBS Wolfgang. The good ol’ boys hit back, double whip Wolfgang to ropes, and they double shoulder tackle Wolfgang down! They bring Wolfgang up, but Mark CLOBBERS Briggs! Mark BOOTS Jensen, Wolfgang throws hands on Briggs. Fans rally with “USA! USA!” but the brawl still goes Gallus’ way.
Jensen and Briggs hit back, Mark knees low and Wolfgang claws Briggs’ eyes! The Gallus Boys each whip Briggs & Jensen, but Briggs BOOTS Wolfgang and Jensen WHEEL KICKS Mark! Gallus bails out to regroup and fans fire up! Mark and Wolfgang go under the ring to bring out a TABLE! Fans love that, and Jensen hurries to match them! There’s another table in play as Jensen puts it in the ring. Briggs helps set the table up in a corner, and both teams dare the other to bring it. Briggs & Jensen go out but Gallus hurries around the way. Gallus gets the trash can lids, and Briggs has Jensen stand down so he doesn’t get clobbered.
Briggs & Jensen nod at each other and go looking under the ring. They bring out chairs! Fans fire up as the chairs and lids clash! The chairs win out, Briggs & Jensen SMACK Wolfgang & Mark on the backs! And again! And then they focus on Mark as Wolfgang bails out! Mark bails out and the fans fire up for the good ol’ boys as NXT goes picture in picture.
Briggs & Jensen dare Gallus to get back in the ring. Mark paces while Wolfgang checks his hands. Gallus starts throwing trash cans and lids into the ring, but Briggs & Jensen easily catch those and set them down. Gallus is annoyed as Jensen throws a can back! Gallus go to commentary to complain, and they hurry with trash cans, but they get DOUBLE DROPKICKS! Gallus hits the desk, then Briggs & Jensen put Wolfgang in! Briggs & Jensen corner Wolfgang to forearm and clothesline! Then they double whip Wolfgang to atomic drop and- Mark CLOBBERS Briggs! Jensen DECKS Mark, but Wolfgang CLOBBERS Jensen!
Wolfgang drags Jensen up and POSTS him! Wolfgang then fires off on Briggs at the apron. Briggs hits back, and now they brawl on the edge. Wolfgang kicks Briggs down but Briggs ROCKS Wolfgang back. They brawl more, Briggs gets the edge, but Wolfgang ROCKS him back. Briggs BOOTS Wolfgang down! Briggs then LEAPS at Mark, but Mark DECKS him out of the sky!
NXT returns to single picture, Mark whips Briggs to Wolfgang for the scoop. GAMANGIRI to POWERSLAM! Gallus stands over Briggs, and then they go after Jensen. Jensen throws haymakers! Fans fire up but Mark knees Jensen low. Mark whips Jensen to kitchen sink knee! Wolfgang SENTONS! Cover, TWO! Mark drags Jensen up to Backslide, and then Wolfgang KNEES a chair into Jensen’s face!! Jensen flounders and writhes in pain but Mark covers, TWO!! Jensen survives but Mark covers again, TWO! Gallus is annoyed, but they drop knees on Jensen. Wolfgang covers, TWO!

Winners: Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen, by pinfall
The Pub Rules Match turned more into a slobber knocker, and we saw that country boys can survive! Will Gallus not leave it at this? Just how much wilder can this one get? Well, speaking of, Gallus isn’t letting security push them back, Wolfgang DECKS one! And then refs rush out, only for Joe to DECK one of them!! That’ll be a mighty big fine! Well now police storm in! They ARREST Gallus for disorderly conduct! Will not even the law stop this firm from taking over?
A great NXT with a lot of great things set up for Halloween Havoc. For one, great vignette from Nathan Frazer to frame his rivalry with Axiom within his favorite thing outside of wrestling in soccer. As if Frazer VS Axiom Round 3 wasn’t going to be great already, making it a qualifier for the North American Championship Ladder match is going to boost that into something amazing. Either guy can win and either guy will make an awesome addition to that ladder match. Chase U has a great “pep rally,” and we got another classic Andre Chase outburst. Chase VS Von definitely feels like Von’s to win, but I would love if Chase got another shocker upset.
Wes VS Tony was really good, but I feel like that had to be a legit injury for Tony D. There’s no way NXT would intentionally make that part of story, but they can definitely spin it for story. Wes has to prove to everyone, including himself, that he deserves to be in the ladder match, so he might go above and beyond with wild spots. Given that, maybe Wes dooms himself and overdoes it, allowing someone else to win the title. Melo & Trick also keep hating on Wes so whether it’s Melo or Wes who wins, they can have an awesome feud going into the Fall and whatever NXT special parallels Survivor Series this year.
Great segment from Dragunov, JD and Bron with great use of continuity from NXT UK. And while I personally don’t think a Triple Threat is best for this, obviously the fans all wanted it, and Bron even played along by doing his own take on Steiner Math so that was fun. I just hope that this Triple Threat doesn’t go the way of Mandy Rose using Blair Davenport and Meiko Satomura against each other to win. Bron has had a great time in NXT, but he could easily move up to RawDown. My main thing is, Dragunov cannot, should not and better not be fed to further boost Bron. Dragunov can pin JD so that Bron loses without losing, clean exit and finally NXT UK gets some respect over here.
Mandy VS Fallon was a solid opening match but of course Mandy wins. She calls out Fyre, but then Fyre throws it back at her, obviously we’re getting that title match for Halloween Havoc. Lyons VS Kayden was a great match but it makes sense for Lyons to win since this was 1v1. Lyons, Stark & Fyre have a great confrontation with Toxic Attraction, that is definitely a Six Woman Tag to help factor things in for the women’s title and women’s tag titles. I almost feel like we’ll get a Triple Threat Tag for the women’s tag titles just so we get another situation of one side losing without really losing any power levels. Lyons & Stark can pin Toxic, they can pin KC Squared, the other goes after Lyons & Stark for the Fall season.
Decent promo from The Schism and a really good match from Grimes VS Gacy. The Dyad of course make the difference and Gacy wins, and I further believe this is leading to a Six Man Tag of The Schism VS Grimes, Edris & Malik. Good promo from Apollo and good response from Waller. I have a weird feeling Apollo VS Waller can end up an Eye for an Eye match like Seth Rollins had with Rey Mysterio a couple years ago. Waller also having Roxanne AND Cora on his talk show, he’s of course going to stir the pot, but we all know Roxie VS Cora II was going to happen at some point, so this is a good way to get multiple stories going at once.
Good debut match from Sol Ruca, and with her athletic background, there are parallels between her and Tiffany Stratton, so I’m almost expecting Sol’s first feud to be with Tiffany. Wendy and Lash have a good promo segment, their match will be very good, and it could go either way. Wendy kept her feud with Tiffany going even after losses, so whether Wendy loses or Lash does, they both have that character where they’ll just go back for more. Dragunov has a great return match with Quinn, and of course Dragunov wins. Sanga, Quincy and Quinn had a good segment backstage, and Quinn is a good foil for Quincy to feud with.
Really good match from Brutus and Kemp, but obviously Kemp wasn’t worried about winning, just hurting Brutus. Mission accomplished there and obviously we’ll get Julius VS Kemp next. It’s just rather odd that Kemp still wears the singlet he spray painted last week. I’m sure Kemp will have his own, non-Diamond-Mine ring gear soon, and since Damon Kemp is a former Minnesota wrestler, I’m hoping for gold and maroon. That’d look pretty awesome, especially to contrast the blue and white of Diamond Mine.
We got great segments from Gallus and the good ol’ boys all night, especially with Gallus pushing the limits with NXT security. That main event was awesome stuff, and I’m a bit surprised Briggs & Jensen won, but HHHBK seem to really like those guys. But I feel like having Gallus arrested is actually the wrong way to go about this. Hank Walker should’ve stormed out there cuz he’s basically alpha security guard. Also, Hank has felt like the third man in the Country Boys stable since he showed up on Level Up months ago. Maybe that still happens next week, with a segment where Gallus is released on bail and Hank gets in their face. Then we can get Briggs, Jensen & Hank VS Gallus in a huge Six Man Tag for Halloween Havoc, whatever wild stipulation attached to it you want.
My Score: 8.8/10

The #INHUMAN Dante Martin is ready to shine in the Dark! Will he fly high against one half of the Workhorseman as AEW continues in Orlando?
- Fuego Del Sol VS Jay Malachi; Fuego wins.
- Leila Grey VS Tiara James; Grey wins.
- Jeeves Kay w/ The Trustbusters VS Gus De La Vega; Jeeves wins.
- Jora Johl VS Blake Li; Johl wins.
- Anna Jay A.S VS Kelly Madan; Anna wins.
- Ryan Nemeth VS Arjun Singh; Nemeth wins.
- Leon Ruffin VS BSHP King; Ruffin wins.

- The Renegade Twins VS Mila Moore & Mylo; The Renegade Twins win.
- Nick Comoroto w/ The Factory VS Shaheem Ali; Comoroto wins.
- Dante Martin w/ Matt Sydal VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; Dante wins.
Solid line up, and it is great to see Fuego Del Sol back in action. He had that scary situation months ago about the hole in his neck, so he’s clearly made a great recovery. I’m sure he’ll get a great win tonight, but I’m wondering where he’ll go in AEW now that he’s back.
