The Man of the Hour’s time has finally come! Full Sail cheers as Lio fought the Law and beat the Law! Will the Living Piece of Gold’s net worth only grow from here?

William Regal appears to officially put the belt around Lio’s waist, but Gulak barges back into the ring? Gulak takes the belt from them both, so that he can officially give it to the new champion. Lio seems to have won Gulak’s respect on top of the title. Will this seal of approval help Lio truly take over where Gulak left off?

 

NXT looks back on the legacy of Finn Balor in Full Sail!

The Prince came to NXT and not only revolutionized himself, but he revolutionized action on this brand. Whether Extraordinary Man or Demon, he became the longest reigning NXT Champion along the way. But now that he’s back, will he revolutionize his legacy during this Era of the Undisputed?

 

Tegan Nox is back!

She’s already made a splash in NXT UK, but she’s ready to show NXT USA what the Shiniest Wizard looks like. She’ll make her NXT USA debut next week, but she’s also supporting her Team Kick Captain, Dakota Kai! Will Team Kick kick things up a notch as 2019 heads for the home stretch?

 

Rhea Ripley VS Aliyah w/ Vanessa Borne!

The Mosh Pit Kid is back in Full Sail, because she’s not done making her brutality international! Will she show #BorneBougie what it’s like to ride the Riptide?

The bell rings and Rhea circles with Aliyah. They tie up and Rhea shoves Aliyah with such force, Aliyah ends up in the corner! Aliyah uses the ropes as defense and the ref keeps Rhea back. Rhea still whips Aliyah corner to corner but Aliyah dodges to hop on for a screeching sleeper hold! Rhea throws Aliyah off then stomps her down! Rhea suplexes but Aliyah slips out to CLAW Rhea on the back! That only angers Rhea! Rhea reels Aliyah in for a short lariat, then another, then whips her for a BIG dropkick!

She holds onto the Cloverleaf, Aliyah taps, Rhea wins!

Winner: Rhea Ripley, by submission

Rhea rips through Aliyah, but she dares Vanessa to give it a go! Rhea grabs a mic and says, “There is no doubt that Shayna Baszler is the most dominant NXT Women’s Champion in history. She has tapped, napped or snapped every one of her competitors. But not me! Shayna, I’m coming for ya.” The Ripper is ready to rip the Queen of Spades from her throne, but when and where will we see it all happen?

 

NXT is under construction?

A duo walks out, ready with hard hats and tool belts. This new team looks ready to remodel Full Sail, but who are they? The lights come up, and the two ladies step aside to reveal BREEZANGO! Tyler Breeze and Fandango are ready to go to work, though Prince Pretty has to bring the Lord of the Dance away from the construction crew. Will Breeze & Fandango rebuild themselves while tearing down their opponents?

Breezango VS Ever-Rise!

Speaking of tearing down, the French Canadian connection is being dragged out by Jaxson Ryker! The Gunner dumps those two on the stage, and here come the rest of the Forgotten Sons! It looks like Steve Cutler and Wesley Blake want to rearrange the match card! Will they be #ForgottenNoMore after tonight?

The teams sort out, and Cutler starts against Breeze. The two go at each other and Breeze throws hands! Breeze hits Blake as he runs in, but Cutler kicks low. Cutler whips but Breeze kicks back.

Ryker gets away with throwing Breeze into a post!

Fandango sees what happened, and FLIES out at Ryker! But Blake DIVES onto Fandango! Blake puts Fandango in, Cutler tags in, and the Sons combine for a powerbomb to knees! Cutler hops back up while Blake dragon sleepers Fandango, Memory Remains!! Cover, The Forgotten Sons win!

Winners: The Forgotten Sons, Cutler pinning

The savage trio will not be stopped until the fans have no choice but to know who they are! Will they one day put themselves into the history books with gold?

 

NXT looks closer at the Limitless One.

Keith Lee always looks to be better than he was the day before. Win-loss records aside, his most recent match with Dominik Dijakovic was “a battle of wills.” It was a battle of hunger. And it was for the future. Lee is hungrier, has more willpower, and wants it more. When they meet one more time, Dijakovic will have to #BaskInHisGlory!

 

Boa VS Cameron Grimes!

Beijing baller meets Carolina brawler as the Breakout stars continue to work towards the top. Will Boa at least last longer against the #CountryConfident technical savage than Sean Maluta did?

The bell rings, Grimes spots something on stage and both Boa and the ref looks over. Grimes gives Boa the double stomps! But there really is something coming down the ramp, and it’s the North Ireland Nightmare, Killian Dain! Grimes covers, Grimes wins! Then Grimes gets out faster than his win!

Winner: Cameron Grimes, by pinfall

Dain is eyeing Grimes, perhaps on to his next target? He goes after Boa instead! VADER BOMB! Big Damo wants to crush Boa, another Vader Bomb! Dain drags Boa out to then bring him to commentary, for a torture rack TOSS! Boa crashes onto the desk, and Dain shouts, “This is MY NXT!” Fans boo as Dain leaves Boa for dead. Who else will become prey for the Beast of Belfast?

 

Damien Priest enjoys the spotlight.

As he arrives in his sports car, he welcomes the cameras being all on him. “That’s the reason why I laid out Pete Dunne.” The Archer of Infamy did in fact blindside the Bruiserweight, who made a name for himself throughout all of NXT, USA and UK combined. But that name is just a bull’s eye, and Damien took his shot. He will #LiveForever at Dunne’s expense, but will he soon pay the price?

 

Isaiah “Swerve” Scott VS Roderick Strong!

The Undisputed Era’s North American Champion returns to action against a man who has evolved many times throughout his wrestling career. The Savior of the Backbreaker doesn’t seem to sweat Swerve, nor Velveteen Dream’s issued challenge. Will Strong learn otherwise tonight?

The bell rings and Swerve ties up with Strong. They go around and Strong headlocks to the takeover. Swerve headscissors but Strong works on his way out.

Haymakers, CHOPS, and then Strong knees low. Strong lifts Swerve for a pendulum backbreaker! Fans cheer this great exchange as both men slowly rise. Strong elbows Swerve right in the head, then kicks him down. Swerve gets to a corner but Strong CHOPS more. Swerve shoves but Strong forearms. They brawl again and Swerve gets an advantage. Strong hits low to then whip Swerve, but Swerve reverses and clotheslines Strong in the back!

Strong goes down, Swerve slingshots and somersaults to jump, but Strong catches him! Cradling backbreaker! Swerve writhes while Strong catches his breath. Fans duel as Strong drags Swerve up. Strong CHOPS Swerve on ropes, then puts him in a corner. Strong climbs up to rain down rights and gets 8. Swerve haymakers back!

Strong sits Swerve up for a grounded cobra twist, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights against the hold but Strong jams a knee into Swerve’s ribs!

Cover, TWO! Strong keeps on Swerve with a grounded cobra clutch! NXT returns to a single picture, and Swerve fights his way up. Swerve elbows out of the hold but Strong anchor s a leg! Swerve kicks Strong away, but Strong comes back to reel him in. Swerve DECKS Strong with that right!

Fans rally up as Strong and Swerve stand. Swerve rallies on Strong with clotheslines, then a jawbreaker! European Uppercut in the corner, then second rope elbow drop to Strong’s shoulders! Fans fire up with Swerve as he starts kicking. But here come the rest of the Undisputed Era! Strong hops up but Swerve kicks out his legs, to SUPERKICK and draping DDT! Cover, TWO!! The Era shout at Strong to fight but Swerve is on Strong with a half nelson. Strong elbows free and then fireman’s carries, but Swerve slips out to the apron. Swerve ducks, slips in, GERMAN SUPLEX! Somersault COMPLETE SHOT! Step-up calf kick! Cover, TWO!! Swerve almost had that, but Strong survives the rally. Strong bails out to the apron but Swerve heads over. The two brawl, but Swerve sweeps the legs to mule kick! Strong is in an apron Tree of Woe, Swerve slingshots out for KILLSHOT STOMPS!!

The Era are furious but fans are loving this! Swerve puts Strong in, heads back in but the Era distracts as they lurk. Strong hits a jumping knee! Then the PSYCHO KNEE! Suplex, END OF HEARTACHE! But that’s not all, Strong makes Swerve suffer with the Stronghold! Fans boo but Swerve taps, Strong wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by submission

The Undisputed Era keeps all four pillars strong and are rolling through NXT’s new phase. Cole grabs a mic while they celebrate, to congratulate Swerve on the effort. Cole will admit, Swerve’s good, just not near the level of “Ol’ Roddy Strong.” But that’s what Cole loves about NXT: the best of the best come here to see how they measure up to the Undisputed Era. That’s why Finn Balor’s back. That’s why Ciampa’s back. They want to fulfill some “unrealistic dream” that they’ll be the ones to dethrone Adam Cole. “Guess what? That is never going to happen!” But wait, Velveteen Dream appears on the titantron, because he heard someone say, “Dream.” The spotlight shines on the Era, and here comes the Experience! Dream is on the new NXT balcony to speak to the Era.

“The reality is, Undisputed Era, some of you are great.” But Roddy Strong needs to allow the Dream to show him the reality. Strong is doing a Shawn Michaels Playgirl cover?! In two weeks, Strong will experience the Experience once again in a title rematch! And when Dream strips Strong of that North American Championship, “the world will see why you just don’t measure up.” The belt disappears and there’s a tiny, tiny censor bar! The Era is incensed, Strong is ready to rip into Dream, but here comes CIAMPA! And with his old friend, the crutch! Ciampa heads for the Era in the ring while Dream watches. As the song says, “No one will survive!” Ciampa also brings a chair! The Era retreats, but will they be able to run and hide for much longer?

Ciampa takes a seat and picks up the mic the Era left behind. “Goldie, Daddy’s home.” Fans echo “Daddy’s Home!” for Ciampa, but when and where will the Psycho Killer get back what he never truly lost?

 

NXT reviews what led to Time Splitter VS Ring General!

Imperium looked to invade NXT USA from the UK, but they did it by interfering with Kushida’s business. Kushida fought them all off, and would get a win over the soldiers, but Walter would attack Kushida directly! Now it is a dream match of global proportions!

 

NXT shares what happened backstage during the break.

Cathy Kelly was waiting to interview Ciampa, but instead got Angel Garza. Garza says the most handsome superstar in NXT is more deserving of air time. Ciampa walks by and Cathy still wants her interview, but Garza laughs. Garza trash talks in Spanish, but Ciampa DECKS him! Cathy asks what Garza said, but Ciampa had no idea. Will everyone new to NXT realize why no one messes with the Blackheart?

 

Dakota Kai VS Bianca Belair!

The Team Captain is ready to kick butt, but will she be able to beat the EST who is becoming one of the hungriest sueprstars in the Women’s Division?

The bell rings and Bianca ties up with Dakota. They go around and Bianca puts Dakota in a corner. Bianca pie faces Dakota then throws her down face first. Bianca claps back but Dakota slaps back! Bianca whips, Dakota goes up and over, but Bianca catches her! Bianca squats but Dakota slips out to trip her up! Now Dakota claps back, and even flap flaps! Bianca gets mad and she waistlocks Dakota. Dakota works her way down and bumps Bianca of her. Dakota runs, Penalty Kick! Double stomps! Bianca rolls right out of the ring but Dakota is on the apron. Dakota Penalty Kicks again! Dakota puts Bianca back in then covers, ONE! Fans rally and duel as Dakota is on Bianca. Bianca reverses the whip but Dakota dodges and runs back in. Bianca flapjacks Dakota onto buckles! Then runs in to ram her shoulder into Dakota! The ref counts as Bianca keeps on Dakota, but Bianca backs of at 4.

Bianca hip tosses Dakota then runs her over! Cover, TWO! Bianca keeps her cool and smirks as she pushes Dakota around. Bianca grabs Dakota’s hair and scoops her, then does more squats before she slams Dakota down. Bianca stands on Dakota but Dakota kicks out quick. Bianca puts Dakota on the ropes to then push her around. Dakota small packages, TWO! Dakota tilt-o-whirls into a gutbuster! Cover, TWO! Bianca grows frustrated but she’s in control while NXT goes to break.

Bianca rams her shoulders, but Dakota goes up and over to roll up, TWO! Bianca blocks a boot, chicken wings, Glam Slam! Then standing shooting star! Cover, TWO!!

Bianca is losing her cool and tries another cover, TWO! Exhaustion meets frustration and both women are down. Fans rally up as Bianca gets back up.

TWO, and Dakota tilt-o-whirls around to then dodge and BOOT! Bianca forearms, Dakota rebounds, but her boot misses! Torture rack, KISS OF DEATH!! Cover, Bianca wins!!

Winner: Bianca Belair, by pinfall

Despite Dakota’s determination, it was still Bianca’s win! Bianca grabs herself a mic to say, “So hold up.” She heard what Rhea Ripley said about beating Baszler. “Girl, uh-uh.” Bianca doesn’t care if Rhea was the first NXT UK Women’s Champion. Anyone who wants after Shayna has to go through the EST! Will Bianca make herself the hardest mountain to climb even before someone challenges the champ?

 

NXT now takes a closer look at the Colossus.

Dominik Dijakovic sees the parallels between him and Lee. It is as if they were meant to fight forever. They bring the best out of each other, but Dijakovic knows Lee has his limits. He has studied, plotted, and prepared. This fourth rematch might be their final. Will Dijakovic #FeastHisEyes on a victory?

 

NXT looks at Finn Balor’s WWE main roster run.

From the WWE Draft in 2016 making him a Top 5 pick, to becoming the inaugural WWE Universal Champion, the Extraordinary Man lived up to that nickname. Balor Club is fOreVER, but will he make it even greater than that with this return home?

 

Pete Dunne speaks.

“You want my thoughts on Damien Priest?” When Dunne first arrived in the WWE, Triple H himself encouraged him to make a name for himself. Dunne gets what Damien’s doing. But he won’t let Damien make a name of himself of the Bruiserweight’s back. The longest reigning and most dominant champion in modern WWE history, Dunne will not back down from a fight. The Archer of Infamy won’t be able to shoot his bow with broken fingers. Dunne and Damien face off in the ring next week!

 

KUSHIDA VS WALTER!

The Super Junior and the Austrian Anomaly are both undefeated since joining WWE and NXT! But only one can stand alone as THE undefeated! Who loses the 0 in the loss column in this international dream match that seemed impossible until now?

Breaking news!

Cathy Kelly has word from William Regal on big matches in the coming weeks. First, Ciampa makes his in-ring return against Angel Garza over that scuffle in the back, that is for October 16th. And in two weeks, October 23rd, Velveteen Dream gets his North American Championship rematch against Roderick Strong! NXT keeps on producing blockbusters, but who comes out of these matches with all the shine of the spotlight?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A pretty great episode here, even with less gold than last week on the line. Opening with the now NXT Cruiserweight Championship was a pretty great move, it gives that match plenty of time to breathe, and the results plenty of time to carry. The match was great, and it’s pretty telling of how Lio Rush has redeemed himself backstage to get the title here. It was also great for Gulak to give him that nod of respect, though I do imagine this all means 205 Live is done for. It was fun while it lasted, but the Cruiserweights will get the treatment they deserved as far as match time and placement. I just hope they don’t abandon the things 205 Live was doing, namely building up guys like Oney Lorcan and Humberto Carrillo. Carrillo and Lio can have an incredible match with all the speed and agility between the two. One thing I’m also hoping for is that the belt is redesigned. I never had anything against the shape or color, but being NXT now, I imagine the strap should at least go gold instead of platinum/silver.

Ripley did great in squashing Aliyah, and Dakota VS Bianca was a really great match. I didn’t expect Bianca to win, but maybe Dakota and Tegan can shift gears as far as NXT USA goes and try for WWE Women’s Tag titles? Team Kick VS Kabuki Warriors would make for a great match. As for Bianca calling out Rhea for calling out Shayna, Bianca VS Rhea will make for a great #1 contender’s match that will surely establish Rhea even more, given how strong Bianca has been booked. And when it comes to Rhea VS Baszler, of course Rhea needs to win. Baszler has had her run, and if it isn’t ending for the sake of underdog Candice LeRae, then it should end for the sake of giving Rhea a historic accomplishment of having been both NXT US and UK Women’s Champion in her career.

Grimes gets another fast win. Despite him being the runner-up in the Breakout Tournament, Grimes has gotten a bit more TV time than Jordan Myles. Meanwhile, Dain is moving on while still being destructive, beating up poor Boa. I would think Dain is after Grimes to go savage against savage, but who knows at this point. Speaking of savages, I actually liked how Ever-Rise was savagely beaten off camera for Ryker to drag out like sacks of potatoes. Forgotten Sons VS construction worker Breezango was a really good match, and it keeps the rivalry going if the Forgotten Sons win here. These two teams will surely keep fighting in the tag team midcard while things are figured out with the titles. Good to hear we’re getting more North American Championship stuff, too. Strong VS Swerve was so good, and Strong VS Dream II will be incredible in two weeks. Next week’s rubber match of Lee VS Dijakovic will be incredible, too, and could easily go either way.

NXT did a lot of work to remind everyone who Finn Balor is, since they seem to assume many fans watching are at least after Balor’s time in NXT. Ciampa also gets great stuff tonight with his simply put promo staking his claim at the belt. Ciampa VS Garza should be a good return for the former champ, and who knows what Finn does on his end. We’re at least getting Cole VS Ciampa, and who knows if Finn gets involved or is right after. Kushida VS Walter was borderline a title match in itself! It wasn’t quite TakeOver: Cardiff, Walter VS Bate, but it was as close as you could get on network television. For half a second, I thought Kushida would win and get himself a UK Championship match in the future, but there are still plans on the NXT UK side that need to play out. Walter stays strong and Kushida takes his first loss, but I would think at some point, Kushida will go after Walter again. Perhaps things on both brands steer towards WarGames III using the WarGames match for a crossover and it’s Imperium VS Team Kushida.

My Score: 9/10

PLAY BY PLAY

NXT has a new look!

The logo changed first but now so have the graphics! And not only that, but Wade Barrett has TWO new commentary comrades in Byron Saxton and the new kid on the block, Suou Shah! They’re excited to be here because NXT is the place to be. They’re all ready to go, so what’s up first?

 

Pretty Deadly heads to the ring!

They’re dressed in their parliamentary best. They’ve got the powdered wigs, the make-up, the spotted capes and leather boots. They bow to the crowd and then to each other before going to the podium. They clack their gavels and bring the fans to order. Kit Wilson brings into session the Address of the NXT Commonwealth. Members present: Lord Elton Prince, OBE; and Viscount Kit Wilson. They are YOUR NXT Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly. Order! Order! First order: Do they look delicious? Like the two tastiest snack sin NXT! Nay, the whole WWE! And it is time for Ye Olde SIDE PLATE CHECK~! Look at those bad boys.

Now, to depressing matters. Once upon a time, brave pilgrims left the UK to the US and proceeded to make this a better place. Fast forward a few centuries and Pretty Deadly does the same thing to make NXT drastically better. Look at it now! They are the top of the tag team division as TWO-TIME Tag Team Champions! They rule over the fans with complete impunity. However! Order! There is the issue growing beneath them. They must search for new contenders! Wherefore art thou? Competent challengers! Seasoned veterans! Optimistic teams! Up-and-comers! All training in the PC, wanting a piece of PD.

Teams are hoping to be just as “effervescent” as the champions, but there is a problem. Pretty Deadly’s beaten EVERYONE~! Briggs & Jensen beat Gallus but Pretty Deadly has their numbers: 1-800-UGLY DENIM! Edris & Malik: One can’t keep a shirt on while the other needs to take his off. OHOHOHO! Yes, yes. Sweater vest and oil abs aren’t good enough. And don’t get them started on those “boring brothers.” You mean the Creeds? Yes! The Crrrrreeds! Damon Kemp might be closing the Diamond Mine Dojo forever. What about The Dyad? No, ew, skip them, they creep Kit out.

But that means there is no choice. Has it come to this? Yes. Order! Order! Elton Prince decrees that your TWO-TIME Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly, rulers of their domain with naught but a challenger in sight be awarded the titles forever and ever~! #YESBOY- WAIT! WHAT?! The Brawling Brutes are here from SmackDown! Fans fire up as Ridge Holland shouts, “Surprise, surprise, fellas! You two sounded pretty tough on social media talking about what happened to Sheamus this past Friday night SmackDown. So me and the Bruiser, we’re here tonight to see how tough you really are face-to-face.”

Dunne asks if there are any objections to kicking these two Muppets’ heads in! Fans shout “NO!” but Pretty Deadly panics! They were hacked! That was Kevin Nash! Kevin Patrick! Kevin Owens! Curse him! OH SHUT UP! Dunne & Ridge get in the ring but Ridge stops Dunne from tearing into Kit & Elton. Ridge says the champs sure like dressing up and prancing around like a couple of peacocks. But all they do is talk and talk about how great they are. All Ridge 7 Dunne ask is that they prove it. Because tonight, it’s Tuesday. That means it’s… FIGHT NIGHT! And then the brawl is on! Dunne DECKS Elton, Ridged CLUBS Kit and they both snatch the capes away!

Fans are thunderous for the Bruiserweight and the yoked Yorkshire, but we’ll have to wait as Carmelo Hayes makes his way out for his match. Will Melo remind everyone why he’s The A Champion?

 

Toxic Attraction arrives.

And they get attacked by Alba Fyre! She hits Jacy and Gigi then abducts Mandy! What’s going to happen to tonight’s Six Woman Tag? Well the math is simple: cut it down to 2v2, and make it a #1 contender’s match! Who will win here to head for Kayden Carter & Katana Chance at Halloween Havoc?

 

Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Oro Mensah!

The former NXT North American Champion wants that belt back but must go through a ladder match to do it. The Hottest Superstar Under the Sun has held NXT UK Tag Team Championship gold but never truly lost it. Who will have pole position going into the title race? And who will hit a major speed bump?

NXT returns as Oro makes his entrance. The bell rings and Melo circles with Oro. Fans rally, Melo shoves Oro, and then shoves him again. Melo says Oro ain’t ready, but Oro grabs the arm! Oro wrenches, wristlocks and grinds but Melo spins to wrench back. Oro rolls, headstands and kicks back. Oro then arm-drags Melo down to have an armlock. Fans rally while Melo fights up. Melo pulls hair, whips but Oro reverses. Melo stops himself, blocks a boot, but Oro tiger wall kicks him! Oro says he is championship material, then he arm-drags again. Melo fights up, knees low, and he throws Oro down by his hair. But Oro kips up!

Oro dropkicks but Melo blocks it. Melo dribbles, but Oro gets up to DROPKICK! That one hits and fans fire up. Oro runs, RANAS Melo, and then catches Melo for an EXPLODER! Cover, ONE!! Fans rally up, Oro aims from the corner and runs in, but Melo bails out. Oro stops, slingshots and PLANCHAS! Direct hit and down goes Melo! Fans fire up and Oro puts Melo in. Oro warns Trick and so does the ref. But Melo kicks Oro at the corner, then POSTS him! Oro staggers back, into a SLINGSHOT DDT TO THE APRON! Fans fire up and Melo high-fives with Trick. Melo puts Oro in, covers, TWO! Fans rally and duel while Melo grows annoyed.

Melo drags Oro up, whips him to ropes, but Oro ducks and comes back, into a FLAPJACK HOTSHOT! Oro sputters, Melo fires himself up, and Melo drags Oro up. Oro throws body shots but Melo CHOPS! Melo drags Oro up, cravats and snapmare rolls, but Oro blocks the superkick to roll up! TWO!! Melo escapes to SUPERKICK! Oro sits up in a daze but he grabs Melo’s arm. Melo breaks free, springboards and CROSSBODIES! Fans fire up as Melo covers, TWO! Oro shows toughness and Trick is furious! Melo CLUBS away on Oro, then twists Oro’s head in the neck wrench. Fans rally, Oro throws elbows but Melo smothers him.

Melo drags Oro up in a cravat, and then he runs for a corner. Oro turns that around to RAM Melo into buckles! Both men are down and Trick is worried. Fans rally, Oro staggers away but he blocks a punch to give a punch! And another! And again, and again! Oro whips and back drops Melo high and hard! Melo gets up, Oro rallies with big forearms! Melo swings but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Oro kips up, fans fire up and Oro boots, but Melo blocks! Melo flips Oro but Oro AX KICKS out of it! Then he LIONSAULTS! Fans fire up with Oro more and he aims from a corner. Oro runs in at Melo, but Trick takes the WHEEL KICK for Melo!

Melo CODE BREAKERS Oro down! Melo hurries up top, shoots THE THREE POINTER! Cover, Melo wins!

Winner: Carmelo Hayes, by pinfall

Give Trick the assist, he helps Melo shoot and score again! Will Melo need Trick’s help again when the title is hanging high above the ring?

Carmelo gets on commentary to speak to everyone watching and in the audience. “They tried to say I was on a losing streak. Losing streak where?” While Trick gets helped out, Melo wants to watch who qualifies for his ladder match. And speaking of, here comes Professor Chase! Is it time for another TEACHABLE MOMENT?

 

Diamond Mine is with the medical trainer.

The trainer asks how Brutus Creed’s shoulder feels, and Brutus angrily shouts, “I’M FINE!” Ivy Nile & Julius tell him to chill. The trainer has to check Brutus in order to clear him. But the trainer says there is no way he can clear Brutus for competition. This is serious damage. But then Duke Hudson swaggers in, asking “Who’s crying this week?” Julius says he doesn’t have the patience for this. Duke, go away. Duke says he’s just here to see what TEN chairshots to the back looks like. Julius tells Duke to get walking or Julius will start stepping. And Julius won’t stop at ten chairshots with Duke. Oh, the older brother sticking up for the dumb one. Er, young one. Cute.

But if Julius comes at Duke while Diamond Mine is hurt, it’ll be Julius’ funeral. Oh, is that so? Yeah, Roddy’s still in the hospital, out of commission. Well Julius isn’t. If Duke thinks they’re vulnerable, let’s find out tonight. Duke will consider it. The doc should stay here, they’re both gonna need medical attention tonight. Ivy keeps Brutus back and Julius says she should stay here to keep an eye on Brutus. Brutus needs to chill, but will Julius turn up the heat on Hudson?

 

NXT North American Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Andre Chase w/ Bodhi Hayward & Thea Hail VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

Professor Chase may not have beaten Von Wagner before, but that was before and this is now! Will that golden ticket be motivation enough for the brains to beat the brawn? Or is this still Wagner’s World, and Chase U is just living in it?

NXT returns and Wagner makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two tie up. Wagner knees low, but Chase throws hands. Wagner DECKS Chase, Chase gets up and runs at Wagner, but Wagner picks him up to RAM him into a corner! Wagner RAMS in again and again, then throws elbows. Wagner stands Chase up, smothers him in the corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Chase dodges Wagner, blocks a boot and hits a KNEE JAMMER! Chase KICKS away on Wagner’s leg then CHOP BLOCKS it! Chase grabs the leg, Wagner pushes him away and LARIATS on the return! Fans boo but Wagner shakes out his leg.

Wagner storms up on Chase, SLAMS him off the mat then stomps away. Melo likes what he sees because he doesn’t like Chase after last week’s upset. Wagner digs his boot into Chase but the ref counts. Wagner lets off, he soaks up the heat while fans rally for Chase U. Chase blocks a boot to DRAGON SCREW! And then Chase YANKS the bad leg, drags Wagner up, but Wagner POWERSLAMS Chase for it! Chase goes to a corner, Wagner storms up and stomps Chase down. Wagner stands Chase up to whip him corner to corner, then he run sin, only to get buckles! Chase dropkicks the legs out! Chase runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and dropkicks the legs out!

Fans fire up as Chase JABS away on Wagner! Chase ROCKS Wagner, whips, but Wagner reverses, only for Chase to reverse back into a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Fans spell out “CHASE U!” as Chase stomps away! But Stone gets on the apron! Chase chases him off, and THEA Electric Chair Lifts Stone! Stone fights free, but Bodhi is there! Stone snatches the banner and throws it down, only for Thea to scoop and SLAM Stone! Fans fire up and Chase is proud of his student, but Wagner CLUBS Chase from behind! Wagner back suplexes but Chase slips off! Chase body scissors and rolls Wagner, TWO!! Wagner escapes, and he BOOTS Chase down!

Wagner is furious, and he drags Chase up to the fireman’s carry! DEATH VALLEY NECKBREAKER! Cover, Wagner wins!

Winner: Von Wagner, by pinfall (advances to Halloween Havoc)

Melo mocks Chase’s loss as a “teachable moment,” but now a big, BIG man is in the match! Will Wagner finally back up his words and make NXT his world?

Melo talks trash more, saying it doesn’t matter if it’s Oro, Wagner, or “that doofus,” Wes Lee- WES LEE FLIES IN OUTTA NOWHERE! Wes CLOBBERS Melo off commentary, fires off on him around the way, but the refs hurry to stop this! Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but this will have to wait until Halloween Havoc!

 

Sanga and Nathan Frazer watch this all backstage.

The Gentleman Giant says he should’ve been in one of those qualifiers, but he lost against Von, too. And now Von beat Chase and is going on to Halloween Havoc. Frazer hears that. When he dropped the first fall to Axiom in their series, he was down. He has to win two matches in a row, and trust him, he was in his head about that. But Frazer blocked all the negativity out and he’s made it 1-1. Next week, Frazer has his chance in the tiebreaker. Sanga says if he can’t win it, then he hopes Frazer does. Well, cheers, mate! Thanks! Frazer heads out, and VEER walks in!! Sanga’s old friend is back, does that mean Indus Sher is back, too?

 

Lash Legend walks and talks to gorilla.

“Wendy Choo, I talk a lotta mess, but I walk it like I talk it like I drop it. Case in point: I dropped your ass. And I’m gonna do it again! Boot to face two, boo! Because when Lash comes around, it’s about to go down. Okay?” The Legend is ready to dunk on Wendy, but will she straight brick when taking on the Queen of Comfy?

 

Someone is handing out Schism’s happy face buttons.

It’s the same mysterious figure in the red hoodie. NXT audience members are a bit torn on accepting the free gifts, but Grayson Waller drives up in his yellow H2. Waller has security on hand and tells them they have one job: Make sure no visions of Apollo Crews’ come true. Crews is a coward, understand? Someone park the car. Waller brings the rest along to the arena, but will he not see Apollo Crews coming?

 

Wendy Choo VS Lash Legend!

Wendy’s shut up one big ego already in Tiffany Stratton in the Lights Out match, because she can bring out her dark side. Will she have to do the same thing again against Lash? Or will Lash’s legend grow at Wendy’s expense?

Lash snatches Wendy’s body pillow and BOPS her with it! The ref reprimands, Wendy is furious, and the bell rings. Wendy ducks Lash to fire off hands! Lash shoves her down but Wendy come back with more! Lash knees low, whips Wendy but Wendy reverses to CHOP! Wendy whips but Lash reverses, only for Wendy to DROPKICK her! Lash goes to a corner, Wendy runs in to BOOT her down! Lash bails out but Wendy goes to the apron to CROSSBODY! But Lash catches her with ease, and hits a SWINGING BACKBREAKER! Lash talks trash, brings Wendy up as the ring count passes 5 of 10, and she puts Wendy in at 7.

Lash stalks Wendy to a corner, drags her up and CLUBS her down! Lash talks more trash but fans rally for Wendy. Lash puts Wendy through ropes and CHOKES her while talking more smack. The ref counts, Lash lets off to then KICK Wendy down. Cover, TWO! Lash is annoyed but she drags Wendy up. Fans rally for Wendy but Lash runs to do her make-up and LEG DROP! Cover, TWO! Lash is even more annoyed but she stalks Wendy to a corner. Lash brings Wendy out, whips her into a corner and Wendy hits buckles hard! Lash stands Wendy back up to whip her back in. But Wendy BOOTS back! Lash throws Wendy down by her hair!

Fans obo, but Wendy avoids the elbow drop! Wendy hurries to ROCK Lash, then KICK a leg. And KICKS again! Wendy sweeps the legs, then SHOTGUNS Lash down! Lash crawls to a corner, Wendy runs in to handspring back elbow! Wendy goes up, BOOTS Lash out, and then leaps, but into Lash’s arms again! Lash swings but Wendy rolls to a cover, TWO!! Fans rally as Wendy goes to a corner. Lash runs in, Wendy dodges the boot and KICKS the other leg! Wendy goes up for a VADER BOMB! Cover, WENDY WINS!

Winner: Wendy Choo, by pinfall

And a big win for Wendy! Lash gets humbled, but will she stay humbled? Or is this just the beginning of another grudge for Wendy to deal with?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

Kelly Kincaid, another new addition to NXT, asks him about going after Melo. Was that a message he was sending back to the former champion? Wes says that wasn’t a message. That was a receipt. Melo smashed Wes’s head in locker. Melo tried to crush Wes’s head and end his career! Wes keeps calm and says he’s focused on the ladder match. Wes is going to go all out to get the title, but he’d be lying if he said he didn’t want to get his hands on Melo- and just- Channing Lorenzo walks in and says this is the real Wes Lee. That is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Wes acts all sad and introspective with that lost boy look, going all, “My friends are gone…!”

But Stacks knows Wes is ruthless. Wes hit Tony D’Angelo’s leg so hard, The Don’s PCL is going one way while the rest of him is going that way. Wes defends that he didn’t wanna win that way. Sure, sure. But The Don knows how to make things look like an accident. Actions have consequences, Wes. Stacks leaves, will Wes have to watch his back from now until Halloween Havoc?

 

Gallus speak, though on suspension.

They assaulted referees and security, and now they’re suspended. They didn’t realize how soft everyone here in NXT was. But they’ll stay out of the ring until the suspension is lifted. So don’t worry, lads. They’ll be back soon enough. Briggs & Jensen, that scrap doesn’t prove anything. And Pretty Deadly, hold onto those titles tightly. And Bron Breakker, you watch yourself. When Gallus returns, they won’t just come back for tag gold. Soon, it will be Gallus Boys On Top!

 

Kayden Carter & Katana Chance speak.

A quote on screen reads, “Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.” It’s crazy that they’re even here! They shouldn’t even be besties! Look at Kayden and then look at Katana. Katana’s the “Goody two shoes.” Wow, really? Well, isn’t she? Katana’s nice to everyone and always tries to help out. Well Kayden can be nice sometimes. But the thing is, they’ve also had different paths here. Kayden’s known since she was a kid that she wants to be in the WWE. For Katana, her first love was gymnastics. She used that to win on American Ninja Warrior, and then she had a WWE tryout and fell in love.

It was a rough adjustment as the new girl. Katana had to earn respect, and a couple years back, she needed to step away. Kayden remembers that, and she holds hands with Katana. See? Kayden IS nice. Oh, stop it. But it was tough on Katana and she wasn’t sure where she belonged. Kayden was worried if Katana was ever going to come back. But Kayden being there for Katana helped in making that decision, and they both knew they had the same goal. They wanted to be champions together, and look at them now! They didn’t come together just for the gold, but because they wanted the best for each other.

Toxic Attraction thinks these titles are “on loan” to KC Squared. But no, the titles are where they belong, and Gigi & Jacy are crazy if they think they’re ever getting the titles back. KC Squared will never let go. As for Lyons & Stark, those two are great singles competitors, but as a team, they’re a question mark. KC Squared will be watching, ready for whoever comes out on top.

 

NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships #1 Contenders match: Toxic Attraction VS Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark!

Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne are surely worried what Alba Fire is doing to their Toxic Goddess, Mandy Rose, but they have to focus on getting themselves a second chance at gold of their own. Will they be able to finally have that rematch with KC Squared? Or will the Pride & the Fighter prove they are a dynamic duo to be reckoned with?

NXT returns and Lyons makes her entrance, followed by Stark. The teams sort out and Lyons starts against Gigi. They circle, tie up, and Lyons gets around to a waistlock. Gigi throws an elbow, snapmares Lyons, then KICKS! But Lyons blocks! Lyons stands, she pins Gigi around and backhands her! Gigi gets away and tags in Jacy. Jacy and Lyons tie up, Lyons gets an arm and she wrenches. Jacy gets away as Stark tags in. Fans rally for Zoey but Jacy tells them to shut up. The two tie up, Stark shoves Jacy away and dares Jacy to come back. Jacy runs in, they tie up again and Jacy puts Zoey in a corner.

The ref counts, Stark shoves Jacy back. Stark then rolls Jacy up, TWO! Jacy sweeps and covers, ONE! Stark trips and jackknife covers, TWO! Jacy gets around, schoolgirl with bridge, TWO! Stark CLUBS Jacy, ROCKS her, but Jacy shoves her into the corner. Tag to Gigi, she kicks but Stark blocks! Stark shoves Gigi down, but has to dodge a cheap shot. Stark elbows Gigi then springboard CROSSBODIES! cover, TWO! Tag to Lyons but Gigi tags Jacy. Lyons ROCKS Jacy with fast hands and a BACKHAND! Lyons FOREARMS Jacy in the corner! SUPERKICK! Jacy bails out but Gigi gets in, only for Stark to springboard MISSILE DROPKICK!

Fans fire up as Toxic Attraction bail out! KC Squared is doing as they said and watching this from backstage. Stark & Lyons dare someone, anyone, to get in the ring while NXT goes picture in picture.

Jacy & Gigi take their time given the sore spots Alba Fyre left them with. They talk and then Jacy gets in. Jacy and Lyons reset, but then Gigi tags in. Gigi storms up, Lyons blocks the punches to give punches. Gigi ducks, knees low, and she headlocks. Lyons powers out but Jacy tags in. Gigi sunset flips, Lyons stays up, but Jacy SUPERKICKS Lyons down! Jacy grins and runs in to back body block! Jacy snapmares and KICKS Lyons, then covers, TWO! Jacy snarls and she drags Lyons by her hair. Tag to Gigi, then Jacy feeds Lyons to Gigi’s BOOT! Gigi & Jacy then double suplex! Cover, TWO! Lyons is still in this and Gigi snarls.

Gigi drags Lyons away, bumps her off buckles, and then tags Jacy. They mug Lyons, Jacy stomps away then tags Gigi back in. The ref is busy keeping Stark back and that allows Gigi to bend Lyons back against the ropes! The ref notices and counts, Gigi lets off to tag Jacy. Now Toxic Attraction both pull Lyons back! They let off at 4 and Jacy throws Lyons down. Jacy drags Lyons up to tag Gigi, they mug Lyons more, then Gigi goes to suplex. Lyons blocks, throws body shots and she snap suplexes Gigi down! Lyons rolls Gigi up, TWO! Gigi BOOTS Lyons back down! Gigi wraps on a chinlock and she grinds Lyons down.

Lyons fights up, fans rally, but Gigi wrangles her back down. Gigi leans on Lyons but Lyons grits her teeth and fights back up. Lyons JAWBREAKERS free, then gets Gigi for an ARMBAR! NXT returns to single picture as Gigi reaches out. Gigi gets a ROPEBREAK with her foot, and Lyons lets off. Gigi hurries to stomp Lyons down! Gigi drags Lyons away from Stark, she tags Jacy in, and they double wrench to double KICK! Then BUZZSAW and SENTON! Cover, TWO! Jacy is frustrated but she clamps onto Lyons to half nelson chinbar! Fans rally up and Lyons fights up, only for Jacy to CLUB her! Jacy whips, Lyons reverses and rolls Jacy again, TWO!

Jacy and Lyons DOUBLE BOOT! Fans fire up as both women crawl, hot tags to Gigi and Stark! Stark rallies on Toxic Attraction, BIG elbow for Gigi! Gigi scurries to a corner but Stark runs in to uppercut! And GAMANGIRI! Stark whips, ROCKS, ELBOWS and MULE KICKS! Fans fire up, Stark runs, SLIDING KNEE! Cover, TWO!! Gigi survives but Stark calls to Lyons. Tag to Lyons and Stark hands off Gigi. SUPERKICK GERMAN SUPLEX COMBO! Cover, Jacy breaks it! Stark BOOTS Jacy! Jacy SUPERKICKS back! They both run, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! KC Squared likes what they see and so do the fans!

The teams regroup and then Lyons spots Gigi. They go after each other, the HEADBUTT is a bit double-edged. Lyons and Gigi fire off forearm after forearm then Lyons fireman’s carries. Gigi slips off, shoves Lyons and runs to STO! Gigi drags Lyons up, tags Jacy, and then wrenches for a ROUNDHOUSE! Jacy hits the NECKBREAKER! Cover, Stark breaks it! Jacy is beside herself and she tells Lyons that this is Toxic’s time! Jacy throws forearms, but Lyons ducks the elbow to HEEL KICK! Tag to Stark and she springboards! But Jacy moves! Stark rolls through but into a ROLLING ELBOW! Jacy DECKS Lyons and hurries to tag Gigi!

Toxic Attraction set up, but Lyons trips Jacy up! SUPERKICK for Jacy! Scoop and Z 360 for Gigi!! Tag to Lyons and then Stark PLANCHAS Jacy! Lyons roars for the LYONS DEN!! Cover, Lyons & Stark win!

Winners: Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark, by pinfall (NEW #1 contenders to the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships)

KC Squared can’t help but applaud. The duo was doubted, but Stark & Lyons pull off the victory! Will the Sin City Soldier & the Lioness bring that same energy to the title match?

 

Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“I have never feared pain. Pain makes you feel alive. But agony is a different type of feeling. When I injured my ankle, it was far, far more than just the searing pain of a snapped ligament. The agony I felt to vacate MY NXT UK Championship, a title I slayed an unbeatable force to win. A title I defended with pride and honor was taken away not by an opponent, but by circumstance. It was my privilege to shoulder the weight of an entire brand, but my biggest challenge was sitting and watching NXT UK breathe it’s last breath.

“I watched in frustration as worlds collided, titles were unified, knowing that it should have been me in that ring against Bron. Opportunities like that only happen once in a lifetime. I cannot change the past. But I can change the future. Bron Breakker is a great champion, but he’s a man. And at Halloween Havoc, he’s stepping into the ring with a machine. JD McDonagh likes to take credit for my injury, and my body bares the scars of our great battles. But JD knows in his heard that I stop at nothing to be victorious. I leave every ounce of myself in that ring, including days, weeks, months of my career! That is something that JD talks about, but he doesn’t possess.

“At Halloween Havoc, I will suffer, I will endure a great deal of pain. But it will be worth it, because I will once again become champion as the world says in unison, ‘Long Live the Czar!'” Will UNBESIEGBAR be the one to break Bron and trump the Irish Ace?

 

It’s the Grayson Waller Effect!

The 21st Century Success Story has the second episode of his talk show, “back by overwhelming demand.” There are millions watching, including Apollo, but he can’t do a thing, lad! Waller has security! Waller gets his split screen, he’s live on Instagram, and everyone already follows him. So get in the chat and get a “second vision” of this show. But let’s start off hot with his first guess, the Tony Hawk of NXT, Cora Jade! Jade makes her entrance and Waller moshes to her theme. Cora also has her kendo stick, and Waller introduces Cora’s opponent for Halloween Havoc, Roxanne Perez! Roxie makes her entrance and she smiles at her former friend.

Waller sits at the desk with the ladies, setting up his phone. Sorry, he meant to get a booster seat for Roxie. But Cora, Roxie, the rematch is coming and- Yeah, so Cora’s heard. But how many people did Roxie have to cry to in order to get it? Roxie says it was easy since everyone wants to see her kick Cora’s ass. Oh~, using everyone else to get what you want. Typical Roxie. Ladies, stop interrupting Waller. This is his show. But question: This is the second time Roxie is facing Cora 1v1. How is she feel- “I feel nothing. Because I’m going into this match with no emotion. Unlike at Heatwave, where I was full of mixed emotions-”

“Awww… Are you gonna cry?” Cora mocks Roxie’s “sob stories.” Fans boo but Roxie says this is no sob story. Maybe Cora doesn’t remember, but they wanted to break into the business together, rise to the top of the division and raise the bar together. They could be to new fans what the Four Horsewomen were to them! But the second Cora thought Roxie passed her, Cora threw this away. But that’s okay, Roxie will leave Cora behind to do what they wanted by herself. Cora says at Halloween Havoc, she will beat Roxie again, and the fans will all realize Roxie was a lot of hype and not a lot of talent. Fans boo but Cora says Roxie just isn’t good enough to be part of #GenerationJade.

Roxie says no, Cora. Now that the TRUE Cora is out, see it like it is: For one whole year, Cora put on this whole act that no one was buying. And the second Cora realized that, she blamed Roxie for it! And the fans! Waller agrees with that. Roxie tells Cora and her generation are full of- HEY! Do not use that type of language on this show! And that is the second time they’ve interrupted Waller. Just so you know, Waller has two huge scoops they don’t know about! First: in two weeks, they’ll be playing a game of Pick Your Poison. Roxie and Cora pick each other’s opponents, and the whole WWE roster is fair game! Instagram likes that! Roxie VS Omos!

But secondly- Cora interrupts and says that’s perfect! She’s already got a whole list in mind for Roxie. Well, Roxie does for Cora, too. Cora says Roxie won’t even make it to Halloween Havoc. Roxie says same for Cora. SECONDLY!! Waller please asks they stop interrupting him! Their match at Halloween Havoc is a SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! Now we’re talking. But what’s wrong, Cora? Scared? Waller points out some great choices this year: Buried Alive; Casket Match; Bar Room Brawl. How about a Grayson Waller Exclusive and give it a spin right now! And if it lands on Spinner’s Choice, HE chooses! Heh heh. Oh, right. Good one.

Y’know what? You girls both suck! Spin the wheel now! Security, watch the guests. Cameraman, follow Waller! See, this is what you get on the Grayson Waller Effect. You never know what he’s gonna do! This is exciting. Wait, who is that in the hood? Fans think it’s Apollo, but Waller takes a peek. Can’t see in there. He checks the guy’s arm under the sleeve. White guy, okay! Spin the wheel! Waller wants a Coal Miner’s Glove! He doesn’t know what that is but it sounds great. Oh, oh, here we go. And… it’s a WEAPONS WILD MATCH! Not bad! But wait, security! Cora takes a swing, but Roxie blocks it! Security rushes in before this gets worse!

Waller films the brawl with his phone, fans chant “JERRY! JERRY!” and Waller is all smiles. But then he can see in his own camera, it’s APOLLO! He was in disguise as security! And he drags Waller under the ring! Just what is gonna happen under there?! Cora and Roxie can’t get loose, but this isn’t going to end here! Just what won’t they use against each other in a Weapons Wild Match?

Wait! Waller emerges from under the ring, and his eyes are bleeding red!! That was Apollo’s gruesome vision, and it has come true! Apollo stalks Waller and asks where he’s going. Waller scrambles away to the back, but will Apollo get his own revenge match at Halloween Havoc?

 

The Schism talks with the red hoodie.

What have they been doing all day? They had ONE job. All of their time and energy is put into this mission, yet red hoodie kid can’t even take this seriously! Joe Gacy has The Dyad cool off. But red hoodie kid does need to understand: they’re not mad, just disappointed. “You need to be better.” The Schism leaves, will little red hoodie kid make things right?

 

Julius Creed VS Duke Hudson!

The Diamond Mine wants revenge on Damon Kemp, but it seems Julius will have to make it through the flop to get at him. Will Julius have a hot hand after tonight? Or will he bust and have to fold?

The bell rings and Julius circles with Duke. They approach, Duke knees low and CLUBS Julius hard. Julius goes to ropes, Duke knees and stomps and CLUBS away! The ref counts and fans boo but Duke lets off at 4. Duke dusts his hands off and goes back to Julius. Duke whips, Julius ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Duke! Julius then hits an EXPLODER! Fans fire up as the straps come down! Julius lifts Duke for the ROLLING SPINEBSUTER! And the SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, Julius wins!

Winner: Julius Creed, by pinfall

Blink and you might’ve missed that one! This is how angry Julius is right now, and Duke really did choose the wrong time to push buttons. But then BRUTUS gets at Duke! Ivy tries to stop him but he’s already in “Brutus Smash” mode! Brutus puts Duke back in the ring but Julius tries to stop him. Brutus hammers away on Duke! Julius and Ivy drag Brutus away, but then Damon Kemp talks from the perch! “Congrats on your win tonight, Julius. But at Halloween Havoc, things are going to be… a little bit different.” Brutus tells Damon to get down here so they can beat his ass! Easy, Big Brute, you had your match. Now it’s Julius’ turn.

Julius says that’s fine. Damon, Julius will be his brother’s keeper. Damon is so arrogant, Julius can’t wait to beat him down. Damon says damn right he’s cocky! You would be, too, if you were this talented. Julius might be his brother’s keeper, but Brutus is Damon’s BI*CH! And y’know what? Damon’s so confident, that if Julius somehow does beat him, he’ll give Brutus another match, “but under one condition.” Brutus says he doesn’t need another match! Just another five minutes! Whatever Damon wants, he’s got it! Julius says he knows how Damon does things. He probably wants like a million stipulations.

So what’s the deal, Damon? Loser leaves NXT? Julius has to retire? End his career? Damon says this is Julius’ downfall. It proves Julius is so self-centered. Not everything is about him! This whole stipulation isn’t about Julius, it’s about BRUTUS. Damon has things he wants to accomplish in NXT, and he cannot do that if he has to constantly look over his shoulder. Julius, when Damon wins, it isn’t Julius who leaves. It’s BRUTUS! Brutus is furious, but then he accepts for Julius! Julius doesn’t like to be cold hearted, but when it calls for it, there is no one and he means NO ONE colder. He has ice in his veins.

So it won’t be good enough to beat Kemp. It won’t be good enough to pin him. It won’t even be good enough to submit him! Julius has to send Kemp out the same way Kemp did Roddy. If Kemp likes stipulations, then at Halloween Havoc, Kemp VS Julius, in an AMBULANCE MATCH! Kemp loves it! And oh, tell Roddy to make room for Julius at the hospital. Julius says if Kemp calls for him, Julius answers on the first ring. So Kemp, get your s*it together, Julius is waiting! Will Julius save the Diamond Mine singlehandedly? Or will Kemp pick it apart piece by piece?

 

JD McDonagh speaks.

“I have a pretty unique perspective on my opponents at Halloween Havoc. I’m the only man on this planet to share a ring with both Bron Breakker and Ilja Dragunov. Dragunov is a former NXT UK Champion. He’s unorthodox, ferocious, very dangerous. We all know Bron: he’d run through a brick wall to keep the title. You can be forgiven for looking at these two guys and thinking they’re two wildly different athletes. But to the educated brain, you can see that these guys are exactly the same. Boundless energy, passionate, they both use their bodies as a weapon, and neither one of them have two brain cells in their heads put together.

“They’re gonna go out there and try to see who the toughest is, who can withstand the most pain. But what’s my plan? I’m gonna let them. The bait’s already out there, I’m just gonna let the two animals tear each other apart. Because you see, at Halloween Havoc, it isn’t the strongest man that’s gonna walk away champion. It’s not the most aggressive. It’s the smartest. And you can call me whatever you want. Call me a vulture, a jackal, a hyena. But by the end of the night at Halloween Havoc, when the lights go down, you will call me NXT Champion.” Will the Irish Ace’s opportunistic strategy help him take the title?

 

Hank Walker talks with his friends in security.

They’re all proud of him for making the jump to NXT Superstar, and he has a huge opportunity. His first match as a contracted superstar! But don’t blow it! They’re just razzing him. But Hank says Xyon Quinn won’t know what hit him. And then Quincy Elliot walks in to say hey! The Super Diva does wanna warn Hank. Watch out for Xyon. As much as Quincy loves those tribal tattoos, he kinda pissed Xyon off. What? Who could be mad at you, Quincy? Exactly! What’s with Xyon? But Hank appreciates the advice, and he’s gonna head out. They all cheer Hank on, and Quincy breaks it down. Will Big Hank get an even bigger win than the one that won him a contract?

 

Axiom speaks.

“Next week is the trilogy match between myself and Nathan Frazer. When you think of trilogies, some of the greatest superheroes come to mind. This story with Nathan is not playing out on a comic book page, it’s live-action. It’s intense. And I know he will bring out things we have never seen before. The first two matches were so close. It could’ve gone either way. And I expect this one to be even closer. But the cool thing about the trilogy story with Nathan is that instead of reading it on a page, I get to write the final chapter.” Will Axiom be undeniable when both his pride and the final spot in the NXT North American Championship Ladder match is on the line?

 

Hank Walker VS Xyon Quinn!

Hank Walker was a superstar prospect paying his dues as a security guard, and taking out his frustrations on “Big Body” Javier Bernal was just the thing he needed to prove himself to the WWE. Will he prove they made the right choice? Or will Xyon prove he IS the “X Factor” after all?

The bell rings and Xyon RAMS Hank into a corner! Xyon rams his shoulder in more and more, then whips corner to corner. Hank reverses but runs into a back elbow. Hank staggers, but he still arm-drags Xyon! And again! Fans fire up for Hank as he whips corner to corner. Xyon reverses but Hank comes back, only for Xyon to SPINEBUSTER! Fans boo while Xyon snarls and throws down knees at Hank against the ropes. Xyon lets off as the ref counts, to go out and CLUB Hank back into the ring. Xyon snarls, slides back in and he drags Hank up to bend him back against ropes. Xyon UPPERCUTS, then back suplexes! Cover, TWO!

Xyon clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Hank down. Hank endures, fights up and fans rally. Hank throws body shots, but Xyon CLUBS him! Xyon HEADBUTTS Hank, whips him to a corner, but Hank comes back to LARIAT! Fans fire up as the shirt comes off! Hank runs in to THESZ PRESS! Hank rains down fast hands and fans are loving it! Hank then bumps Xyon off buckles, bumps him off more buckles, and then more! Hank runs in to SPLASH! Xyon staggers, Hank runs in again, but Xyon dodges! Xyon KICKS the leg, runs and RUNS IT STRAIGHT! Cover, Xyon wins!

Winner: Xyon Quinn, by pinfall

Well, Hank won’t have a historic winning streak to start, but Xyon doesn’t look done with him! Xyon aims from the corner, wanting to hit Hank again. But here comes QUINCY! Fans rally for the Super Diva as he backs Xyon down. Quincy helps Hank up and they fist bump. Quincy even gives Hank an encouraging smack on the butt! Y’know, it’s a sports thing. Quincy dances and Hank isn’t sure what to make of it, but does Hank at least have a friend watching his back?

 

Cameron Grimes finds little red hoodie kid.

He doesn’t know who this person is, but they don’t need to be dealing with Joe Gacy. All Gacy does is talk out both sides of his mouth! “Listen, listen. The guy’s a hypocrite. And it’s already bad enough the guy has The Dyad-” BOOT! Rip Fowler kicks Grimes down, then he and Jagger Reed mug Grimes! They RAM Grimes into a trunk, then Gacy hands Jagger a trash can. “Let it out.” Jagger unleashes on Grimes with the can! Gacy smiles and takes the can for himself to SMACK Grimes on the back! The Schism smiles as they look to red hoodie kid. “Job well done! Welcome to the Schism’s tree.” They hug it out, but just who is this in the hood?

 

Briggs & Jensen find the Brawling Brutes backstage.

The good ol’ boys want Dunne to take it easy, they’re just here to wish them good luck tonight. And they also want to let the Brutes know that once they beat Pretty Deadly and become the NEW NXT Tag Team Champions, Briggs & Jensen want the first shot. Oh, is that right? But then Malik Blade & Edris Enofe walk in, and they say they know the Brutes are gonna destroy Pretty Deadly. Ridge takes a guess and figures these two want the first shot, too. How’d he know that? Briggs & Jensen tell Malik & Edris to get in line. Now they’re all arguing, and Dunne SMACKS the lockers with a chair.

Ridge tells Briggs & Jensen that if they want a shot at the Brutes, bring that same aggressive style they brought to Gallus. And as for Malik & Edris, they need to get serious for once. Dunne says he’s done talking! it’s fight night! Watch and learn. The Brutes put on banger after banger after banger! The other teams agree, that is true. But then they argue with each other about who really gets the next shot. But will it all be for naught if the Brutes fail to dethrone Pretty Deadly?

 

Backstage interview with Bron Breakker.

Kelly asks the NXT Champion his thoughts on what both Ilja Dragunov and JD McDonagh have said about their Triple Threat. Bron says they can watch as much film as they want, train as hard as they want, but Halloween Havoc’s gonna be a dog fight. But then in walks Javier Bernal. He introduces himself as “Big Body Javi” and says he’s a future NXT Champion. Bron’s already proven he can beat JD, and he probably could take Dragunov 1v1. But why make it a Triple Threat, the same kind of match that cost him at Roadblock? Javi remembers, he’s got the brain of an elephant. Bron has all the tools in the world, except up there.

But hey, not everyone can be Big Body Javi. Bron says, “Big Body Javi? Yeah, I can tell. Look, my temper got me into the first Triple Threat match, my pride got me into this one. And your stupidity is gonna make me request a match against you for next week!” Javi just realized he put his foot in his mouth. Will he end up an appetizer for the Big Booty Nephew before the feast that is Halloween Havoc?

 

NXT Tag Team Championships: Pretty Deadly VS The Brawling Brutes!

Kit Wilson & Elton Prince thought they were clear and free to be the forever champions of NXT, but then the Bruiserweight and Yorkshire Grit returned to the brand! Will the “commonwealth” soon have new nobles? Or will their lordships survive this Tuesday Night Fight?

NXT returns and Pretty Deadly makes their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if Ridge & Dunne can bring these belts to SmackDown!

The teams sort out and Ridge starts with Elton. They circle, tie up, and Elton headlocks. Ridge powers up and out then hip tosses Elton hard! Fans fire up while Elton scrambles to ropes. Elton BOOTS Ridge, tags Kit, but Kit runs into a hip toss, too! Ridge taunts Kit, but Kit JAWBREAKERS! Kit CLUBS Ridge, suplexes, but Ridge blocks! Ridge suplexes and SLAMS Kit down! Tag to Dunne and Ridge butterfly suplexes Kit, for the SHOTGUN DROPKICK! Dunne keeps Kit from Elton, hammerlocks one arm and pulls the other. Fans cheer as Dunne bends Kit’s fingers! And then bends some more! Dunne then goes after the other arm, isolates it, and STOMPS!

Kit clutches the elbow and fans rally up. Dunne drags Kit up, wrenches the bad arm, but Elton jumps in, to tag Kit? The ref says that doesn’t count by a long shot, but it is all a distraction tactic so Kit can throw Dunne by his hair! Now Kit tags Elton legally, and Elton stomps away on Dunne. Fans boo but Elton covers, TWO! Elton keeps an eye on Ridge and he headlocks Dunne. Dunne powers out, hurdles and drops to then CLOBBER Elton! Tag to Ridge, Ridge gets Kit and together, the Brutes give him BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! Dunne runs to DECK Kit with the tenth! Fans fire up as Pretty Deadly flounders and NXT goes picture in picture.

Dunne and Ridge fall back while Pretty Deadly regroups. Elton is wary as he slides in, and he ties up with Ridge. Ridge RAMS Elton into a corner, EuroUppers him over an dover, then wrenches to whip corner to corner hard! Elton hits buckles then the mat, and Ridge storms over. Elton throws hands, CHOPS, and uppercuts! Elton whips, Ridge reverses and CLOBBERS him! Ridge drags Elton up, tags Dunne, and Dunne goes up while Ridge wrenches an arm. Dunne gives DOUBLE KNEES to the arm! Dunne then wrenches the arm, wrangles Elton to the mat, and he drops DOUBLE KNEES on the elbow! Dunne then runs in at the corner, but Elton dodges!

Elton tags Kit, They double whip Dunne into the adjacent corner! Then they get Dunne up in a Tree of Woe for Elton to BOOT Dunne down! Kit taunts Ridge, drags Dunne up, and wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Kit wrangles Dunne now, and he drops knees, only to miss the arm! Kit clutches his leg, but he still BOOTS Dunne down! Kit rains down fists, smothers Dunne to a cover, TWO as Dunne bridges up! Kit wraps on a chinlock and makes it a cobra clutch as NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally as Dunne endures, and Dunne reaches up. Dunne gets Kit’s nose! The ref reprimands, but Kit lets go and Dunne CHOPS him!

Dunne CHOPS Elton, ROCKS Kit, ELBOWS Elton, but Kit RAMS Dunne! Tag to Elton, he runs in to UPPERCUT! Dunne flops down and Elton looms over him. Fans rally up but Elton stands on Dunne’s head and pulls the arm! The ref counts, Elton lets off, and Elton slaps Dunne around. Elton messes with Dunne’s hair, but Dunne stands up to ROCK Elton! Elton ROCKS Dunne but Dunne ROCKS Elton! The forearms keep going, Dunne fires off haymakers and CHOPS! Dunne CHOPS Elton off his feet! Dunne reaches for Ridge but Elton whips him away, so Dunne uses that momentum to DECK Kit! Elton runs in but Dunne dodges, hot tag to Ridge!

Ridge the Fridge runs and rallies on Elton with big shoulders! Ridge ducks ‘n’ dodges to FLYING SHOULDER! Fans fire up and Elton flounders. Ridge runs in to SPLASH Elton! Kit runs in, but gets a scoop and POWERSLAM for it! Elton swings but his arms get caught, for a HEADBUTT! Ridge then scoops Elton to POWERSLAM him on Kit! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Ridge and he drags Elton up. Ridge reels Elton in but Elton drops to KANGAROO KICK! Elton UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again! Elton runs but Ridge CLOBBERS him back! Fans are thunderous while both men are down!

Ridge and Elton crawl for their corners, kicking at each other. Hot tag to Kit, and he jumps on Ridge! Ridge carries Kit like a backpack but he’s fading in the sleeper hold. But then Ridge gets a second wind and he stomps his way to Dunne for the tag! Dunne goes up and he SUPER SUNSET BOMBS! Cover, TWO!! Kit survives but Dunne snarls. Fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” as Dunne grabs the arms. Dunne gives Kit DRAGON STOMPS! Then Dunne DOUBLE WRISTLOCKS the arm! Kit endures, reaches out, but Elton grabs his hand. Dunne lets Kit go to STOMP Elton! And then ASAI MOONSAULT! Fans fire up and Dunne goes back for Kit, SNAP GERMAN!

Dunne dodges Elton, SNAP GERMAN! Fans fire up again as Dunne runs at Kit to GAMANGIRI! Then he runs at Elton, but Elton dodge the knee. Elton runs to Kit, Kit goes up and over and gets the boost, FLYING CODE BREAKER! Cover, but Ridge breaks it! Kit DROPKICKS Ridge for it, and then tags Elton. Pretty Deadly aim at Dunne, DOUBLE SHOTEI! But Ridge returns, only to get DOUBLE BOOTS! Dunne ENZIGURIS Elton, but Kit yoyos to LARIAT Dunne! Cover, TWO!! Dunne survives and Kit is shocked! Fans are loving it, though, and are giving a standing ovation! But Pretty Deadly sets up, SPILT- Ridge CLOBBERS Elton!

Dunne gets an ARMBAR on Kit!! Elton DECKS Ridge but is also down! Dunne has the arm, but Elton pushes things over to a cover! TWO!!! Dunne is up, he blocks the haymaker and bends the fingers, to SNAP them!! And then the pump handle, BITTER END!! Cover, but Elton helps Kit with the ROPEBREAK! Fans boo but the ref can’t reprimand what he didn’t see. Ridge saw it, though, and he’s pissed! He chases Elton into the ring, Dunne is there, too! Elton swings at the ref! The ref dodges the haymaker, though, and Dunne ROCKS Elton! Ridge POUNCES Elton out of the ring! Then Dunne GAMANGIRIS Kit!

Tag to Ridge, the Brutes bring Kit around, scoop, ROUNDHOUSE NORTHERN GRIT!! Cover, but wait, IMPERIUM is here?! Giovanni Vinci gets on the apron but Ridge DECKS him! Dunne spots Ludwig Kaiser, goes outside and MULE KICKS him! But then Elton CLOBBERS Dunne from behind! Kit CHOP BLOCKS Ridge, tags Elton, and Pretty Deadly sets up! SPILT MILK!! Cover, Pretty Deadly wins!

Winners: Pretty Deadly, by pinfall (still NXT Tag Team Champions)

Another screw job, just like with the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships! But Imperium goes after the Brutes again, they all brawl to the back, allowing Pretty Deadly to celebrate surviving the night! But wait! Malik Blade & Edris Enofe storm out, followed by Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen! Pretty Deadly think they cleared everyone out but are proven dead wrong! Will they have to face all four men to prove they’re the best?


My Thoughts:

Great episode for NXT to introduce all the new aspects of this “White ‘n’ Gold” era. New commentators and interviewers (partially because Vic Joseph & McKenzie Mitchell are on their honeymoon) and the new look to fit the new logo, all good stuff. And a lot of great build towards Halloween Havoc, with that being NXT’s return to Saturday streaming events a la TakeOvers. Great vignette promos from Dragunov and JD, and a great interview promo from Bron where he actually used his “shoot voice,” not his “Steiner” voice. Javier Bernal stepping in it was also great, and he’ll be a good tune-up for Bron next week. Still personally hoping Dragunov wins, but I think Bron is finally finding himself as a character.

Great stuff for the North American Championship story. Melo has a great match with Oro but of course Trick helps Melo win, and we get a great transition right into Chase VS Wagner. Ironically, Chase U being ringside is what costs Chase and Wagner is going to bring some beef to the ladder match. That always seems rather standard for a multi-man ladder match like this, and Wagner is a natural pick. Sanga and Frazer have a good promo together, and I could’ve sworn Frazer VS Axiom was this week. But Veer showing up here, that’s great. He wasn’t really working out on Raw anymore, he was just another mean monster like Omos, so resetting his personality in NXT and reuniting with Sanga is great stuff.

Lash has a good promo going into her match with Wendy Choo, and it was a good match, and it was a bit of a surprise that Wendy won. It was also a surprise no Heel attacked her after. Maybe Lash will lash back at Wendy next week to set up a rematch for later. Then I loved that they decided to change things up from the Six Woman Tag. Alba “abducting” Mandy was a hilarious and aggressive way to push things to a women’s title match at Halloween Havoc, and we got a great #1 contenders match from Gigi & Jacy VS Lyons & Stark. KC Squared has a good promo to put their run together into perspective, but I have mixed feelings on Lyons & Stark winning.

I suppose it works that they’re proving people wrong by becoming a strong team, but WWE has done a lot of “the makeshift team beats the established team” these last few years. I’m sure Halloween Havoc’s title match will be awesome, but I would hope for KC Squared’s sake, they win in the end to reestablish that a long term team beats a short term team in the end. As for Alba and Mandy, I hope this is the moment Mandy loses to bring things full circle. She won the title at Halloween Havoc last year, she’ll basically get the one-year reign accolade and then she, Gigi & Jacy can be called up as SmackDown’s trio to counter Damage Control as Raw’s trio.

The inaugural Grayson Waller Effect talk show segment was a bit awkward, but I feel like they ironed out the problems and made this second one work. For one, Roxanne is finally showing some sass to match Cora’s, and I like that Waller kept getting annoyed by them. We got a good look at Spin the Wheel for this year, and I totally knew Roxie VS Cora II was going to allow weapons like Cora’s favorite little kendo stick. Cora won the first time so I think Roxie wins this one, and brutally. Also, great appearance from Apollo, of course Waller ends up with the “bloody” eyes from the prediction, and I would actually love if the blow-off for this is Eye for an Eye, because it just makes sense.

Good stuff from Hank, Quincy and Xyon. Xyon VS Quincy could make for a good match, but also maybe Xyon finds a tag partner to take on Quincy and Hank together. At this point, maybe it’s Duke since he likes picking fights. Duke gets SQUASHED by Julius, that’s good momentum for Julius. And while the promos weren’t the sharpest, Julius, Brutus and Damon Kemp set up quite the angle for Halloween Havoc. That Ambulance Match is going to be a lot of fun, but I don’t see the Creeds being split up like this. Plus, Kemp needs some comeuppance for what he’s done, this could be that moment.

There’s a lot of intrigue in this red hoodie kid and their connection to The Schism. I go with “they/them” because it’s hard to say who is under there. This could be Schism’s North American Championship member, or it could be their first female superstar recruit, it probably depends on what NXT is feeling. But “Red” setting up Grimes was good stuff, and thinking about it, Grimes confronting Red and perhaps revealing them could set up the twist that it IS a female superstar so Grimes can’t go after them. Maybe Grimes gets Chase U as an ally instead of Edris & Malik now that it looks like it could be 4v4.

And of course, great stuff for the NXT Tag Division. Pretty Deadly was so goofy in their “lordly” costumes, the Brutes showing up was a great surprise, and a great main event match out of them. Great interactions from the good ol’ boys, Malik & Edris and the Brutes that of course foreshadow the coming tag title match. Imperium screwing the Brutes over should’ve been expected, this just adds heat for their SmackDown/Extreme Rules stuff. Pretty Deadly VS Briggs & Jensen VS Malik & Edris is going to be great, would love if they decided to Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal for this match, too. Imagine a Triple Threat Tag Trick or Street Fight so they can all just go nuts.

My Score: 8.8/10

AEW Dark 2
Mitchell's AEW Dark Results & Report! (10/4/22)

Dark paves the way to the Dynamite Anniversary!

AEW is about to celebrate Dynamite’s Anniversary, but there’s plenty of action in the Dark! Will Dante Martin & Matt Sydal outwork the Workhorsemen?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Marina Shafir VS Sio Nieves; Shafir wins.
  • Ari Daivari w/ The Trustbusters VS AR Fox; Daivari wins.
  • Tony Nese & Josh Woods w/Mark Sterling VS Rohit Raju & Invictus Khash; Nese & Woods win.
  • Abadon VS Freya States; Abadon wins.
  • Slim J w/ The Trustbusters VS Blake Christian; Slim J wins.
  • Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi w/ Peter Avalon VS Eli Isom & Chris Farrow; Nemeth & Bononi win.
  • Parker Boudreaux w/ The Trustbusters VS Terry Kid; Boudreaux wins.
  • Skye Blue VS Robyn Renegade w/ Charlette Renegade; Skye wins.
  • The Iron Savages w/ JT Davidson VS Gus De La Vega & Levy Valenzuela; The Iron Savages win.
  • Dante Martin & Matt Sydal VS The Workhorsemen; Dante & Sydal win.

QUICK NOTES

Good line-up here. I feel like the Trustbusters are gonna sweep the night because they’ll all be supporting each other with Heel tactics. Honestly, I feel Blake Christian and AR Fox would each win their match-ups if they didn’t have to worry about outside distractions. Good to see the former Bear Country, now Iron Savages, Boulder & Bronson, back in action. They’ll definitely get a good return win. And Dante & Sydal VS JD Drake & Anthony Henry is a great tag match, and I would think Dante & Sydal win that.
