The Raw Women’s Champion has answered the open challenge and Full Sail is happy she did! Becky has the mic and hears the fans chant her name. “It’s been awhile.” Becky remembers walking down the ramp. She remembers sitting in the one corner, defeated, while fans sang her song. “It’s been awhile since you’ve watched me kick someone’s ass here live!” But the wait is over, because Becky is issuing an open challenge right back! HHH sent out the open invitation, but she was going to show up anyway.

WarGames history is being made!

That’s because a Women’s WarGames match is finally happening! Rhea recruited Tegan Nox, Candice LeRae and Mia Yim while Shayna Baszler has Io Shirai, Bianca Belair and NXT UK Women’s Champion, Kay Lee Ray. Shayna says everyone was picking a fight with her so bad, it has led to this. Rhea says that in Chicago, they’ll lock it down. The brawls we’ve had so far will not compare. Shayna equates it to a “two year old’s tantrum” but Rhea won’t be cutting in line in front of the Evil Genius, EST or KLR. Rhea says Shayna just thinks she has a tough team, but the Shiniest Wizard, Mrs. Wrestling and the Head Baddie have shown what tough means. Io Shirai is manic over this historic match! WarGames isn’t about friendships, it’s about risk versus reward. But it’s Rhea’s team that’s locked inside with Shayna’s, and her fearsome foursome hold the keys to the entire future of the NXT Women’s Division. “let’s make some history, and let’s go to war.”

But wait, the Princess of Staten Island is here! And she’s moonwalking on the apron! So that KLR doesn’t see Sonya Deville before the SPEAR! Meanwhile, Mandy Rose and Dana Brooke drag Dakota up. Dana sets Dakota up for a FABULOUS Kick! But here comes the rest of Team Shayna! Bianca Belair and Io Shirai go after Dana, Carmella and Fire & Desire!

Winners: The Viking Raiders, Erik pinning

This is one match Full Sail is happy to see the invaders win! The Raw Tag Team Champions had a victorious return, but will they continue that warpath through Survivor Series?


Cathy Kelley has big news!

The massive melee between Pete Dunne, Killian Dain and Damien Priest is going to come to a head at WarGames in a Triple Threat match, and the winner will be the #1 Contender to THE NXT Championship, at Survivor Series! But if you asked said champion, Adam Cole believes this is just “bad timing” for them. This run Cole is on is unstoppable. He will arrive at Chicago champion and vows to leave as champion. Who between Bruiserweight, Beast of Belfast and brutal Archer of Infamy will be the one to go after the cocky leader of the Undisputed Era?


Ladder Match: Adam Cole VS Dominik Dijakovic!

The Undisputed Era is the faction that practically brought WarGames back, as they’ve been part of the first two. The third time is no different, but it does help if the Undisputed Era can have the advantage. With Team Ciampa still not complete, can Cole put a nail in the coffin by winning this match? Or will the Croatian Colossus climb up higher than ever before to make sure their future fourth man will have an even bigger impact?

The bell rings and Cole goes right after Dijakovic! He stomps away on Dijakovic in the corner, then hurries away. But Dijakovic comes back with CLUBBING forearms!

Dijakovic clutches his own bad leg, but Cole takes it and swings it into the post! And again! And again! Cole shows no mercy to Dijakovic as NXT goes picture in picture.

Cole watches Dijakovic writhe while going for the big ladder by the ramp. Cole puts this ladder in, but then sees Dijakovic get up. Cole BOOTS Dijakovic down, and then folds up the standing ladder.

Fans chant “MAMMA MIA!” as Cole writhes in agony!

Dijakovic is up and he heads up top. Cole hurries to anchor a foot, but Dijakovic hops down to torture rack. Cole fights with fists, and then gets to the ladder! He is already halfway up and reaching for the briefcase! Dijakovic yanks Cole off, but Cole uses it for a PANAMA SUNRISE! Full Sail is fired up all over again as Dijakovic flops out of the ring. Cole sees his opening and scurries up top! Cole is almost there but Dijakovic returns! Dijakovic clubs Cole down and has the torture rack, FEAST YOUR EYES! But that turns out double-edged for Dijakovic’s bad leg! Fans rally up and Dijakovic hobbles up. The ladder bridge helps him get up part of the way. Dijakovic has to hop rather than climb, but Cole returns! Cole gets up and they both grab at the briefcase! Cole uses the case to SMASH Dijakovic in the head! And then Dijakovic falls through the ladder bridge!! Cole unhooks the briefcase, COLE WINS!

Winner: Adam Cole; The Undisputed Era have WarGames Advantage

And he didn’t even need the Undisputed Era to help him! Now Cole, Strong, Fish & O’Reilly will have the leg up on Dijakovic, Tommaso Ciampa, and Keith Lee. The Undisputed Era come out to celebrate with Cole, but the SmackDown superstars have regrouped. As have the Raw superstars, which include Zack Ryder and the Street Profits! The Undisputed Era is surrounded, and the fight is on! SmackDown and Raw put the Undisputed Era down, and then go after each other! But then more NXT superstars appear! This is a lot like what Raw was like! But wait, is that Drew McIntyre?! He gives Dijakovic a CLAYMORE!! And he says “SUCK IT!”

But Keith Lee gets in, and McIntyre turns around for a SPIRIT BOMB!! But Ivar circles with Lee now. But instead of brawling with each other, they both see the chaotic crowd of other superstars outside the ring. These two behemoths build speed and they BOTH FLY!! The Limitless One and the Warbeard bowl over Raw, SmackDown, and NXT! Cole pops out, grinning that he’s the last one standing. But then he turns around, and it’s SETH ROLLINS! SUPERKICK! Full Sail erupts with both cheers and boos as Rollins stomps “Burn It Down!” Rollins aims at Cole, but here comes Ciampa! The Psycho Killer is here, because this is Daddy’s Home. Rollins wants Ciampa to bring the fight, and Ciampa goes to the ring. But then he doesn’t get in, he gives Cole the PSYCHO KNEE! The Blackheart settles things with his enemy first, then gets in the ring with Rollins.

Fans feel “Seth’s Not Cool!” as he and Ciampa stare down. Rollins and Ciampa throw hands! Ciampa knees low, runs, but into a forearm! Rollins runs but into a back elbow! Ciampa sees Fish coming but gets him with Willow’s Bell, his draping DDT! NXT goes off the air, but thankfully WWE YouTube has the rest!

Roderick Strong gets in, but gets a Fairy Tale Ending! Rollins adds the CURB STOMP! Fans are cheering, and suddenly some think, “He’s the Fourth! He’s the Fourth!” Rollins leaves without confirming or denying, and Ciampa waves him good-bye. Rollins says “See you Sunday,” as he assumes Ciampa will lead Team NXT into the 15-Man Elimination match. If Rollins isn’t the surprise fourth man, then who is? It seems we won’t find out until WarGames has begun!



My Thoughts:

THIS is what a go-home should be! NXT may be pulling double duty for Survivor Series Weekend this year, but you’d think they’d done this before. Everything was smooth, nothing was outright filler, and it all works out so that the math keeps all three brands strong without weird finishes and inexplicable camera cuts. Becky starts things off with straight fire, her match with Rhea was great, and in this situation, an attack to end the match makes a lot of sense. Shayna doesn’t like Becky, she doesn’t like Rhea, of course she and her Horsewomen will take advantage of both women being down. Then later in the night, another great match for KLR and Dakota, but naturally the UK Women’s Champion wins to help Team Shayna. That brawl of all the women was great, and Nikki Cross is a Full Sail favorite so it was great for her to just wreck shop with that trash can lid. I really liked that Kairi and Shirai got a moment, too. Maybe that plays into the match, and either Kabuki Warriors defect to NXT or Shirai joins them. Either way I want them all to reunite now that they’re all Heels.

The men also had great parallels to such action, and played off it so it wouldn’t be an exact copy. Ricochet wrecking Kona Reeves was great, because it just felt like a set-up. Reeves wasn’t going to last against Riddle, and the match we got instead was great. The parallel being that superstars from SmackDown, or more specifically, Team Sami, attacked. The difference was them being thwarted and Riddle still getting a win. His brawl with Balor was great, their match is going to be an instant classic. We got an amazing match for The Revival and reDRagon, a rare Heels VS Heels. With talk of Revival still wanting out, why can’t they defect to NXT and be the new Gallows and Anderson for Finn? Then we got a great surprise match, Viking Raiders VS Forgotten Sons. Forgotten Sons may have red hot go-away heat, but they can put on a great match. Raiders win so that NXT isn’t pulling away in the race, and this ups things for the tag champions triple threat.

I am glad to hear that we are getting that triple threat of Dain-Dunne-Damien, and glad to know it will be to give Adam Cole a challenger. I still feel like WWE is having NXT do too much if it’s going to be Cole VS one of them at Survivor Series after a literally brutal match for WarGames. Hell, after what Cole just went through in the ladder match, I’m surprised his leg is okay. My guess is Dunne wins as the one Face in it all, and we can at least tease history being made, Dunne becoming first man to hold both WWE United Kingdom and THE NXT Championship in his career. Cole VS Dijakovic was great, because again, this match parallels Mia VS Shirai from last week, in concept at least. The execution was great, I was really impressed they didn’t parallel the interference. But then it all came out with yet another triple threat brawl to end the show.

I really expected A) Ciampa to be accompanied by the fourth man, or B) offer Rollins that spot after fighting off Undisputed Era. I feel like being in WarGames would’ve gotten Rollins his cool edgy quality back but no, Rollins needs to be able to compete at Survivor Series against NXT as enemies. Unless he defects, which is seemingly less likelier by the moment. My money is on Velveteen Dream being the fourth man because he’ll want revenge on Undisputed Era for (kayfabe) taking him out of action. And I would still hope NXT doesn’t directly copy and paste WarGames match competitors for the 5v5v5 matches, certainly not in the men’s. Use that match to highlight superstars still really great but not all banged up to hell. Now that Riddle isn’t in it, he can be on Team NXT with Ciampa, and perhaps get some NXT UK guys if possible so that it keeps continuity with the invasions. Walter getting in there with Strowman from SmackDown and McIntyre from Raw would be so good!

My Score: 9.2/10

Roxanne Perez VS Indi Hartwell!

The Prodigy and the Impressive One have disagreed on how to handle business outside the ring and in the back, but now we’re going to see who gets it done in the ring! Will Roxie continue to be the Breakout Star of NXT? Or will #IndiWrestling impress HBK and become an Iron Survivor?

The bell rings and Roxie offers a handshake but Indi slaps it away. Roxie gets around to waistlock but Indi headlocks back. Indi wrenches, fans rally for “BOTH THESE GIRLS!” as Roxie handsprings and wrenches back. Roxie wristlocks but Indi wrenches back. Indi whips, Roxie ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl and again, for a RANA! Fans fire up as Roxie hurries up top. But Indi trips Roxie up! Indi fireman’s carries Roxie for an AIRPLANE SPIN!

Roxie goes up but Indi SHOVES her down! Roxie takes a tumble and fans fire up!

Indi wants a ring count and the ref starts it. Roxie stirs at 3 of 10 but clutches her arm. Roxie crawls over at 6, gets in at 7, but Indi grins and stomps Roxie down. Indi drags Roxie up, scoops and SLAMS her, then scoops and SLAMS her again! Then she drops the elbow! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Indi bumps Roxie off buckles. Indi brings Roxie around to bump off more buckles, then she puts her in the ropes to UPPERCUT and BOOT Roxie down! Fans rally and duel as Indi pushes Roxie to a cover, TWO!

Roxie got it down, and proved you don’t have to bend the rules to get ahead! But is she going to make the cut? We see the WWE Hall of Famers gather backstage, will they choose the Prodigy to be an Iron Survivor Challenger?


Andre Chase reviews student papers.

Miguel should know better! There’s two B’s in Gobbledy and two O’s in Gooker! Dumbass… Google it! Thea Hail & Duke Hudson find him. Duke apologizes for the boot to the face last week. He booted the only man he’s ever looked up to in the face, with boots so big they could put out forest fires. And with pinpoint accuracy, as he could’ve hit Chase anywhere and got him in the chin. Yeah, Chase was there. But see, Kit Wilson moved, Duke couldn’t stop his momentum, and then he let the team, the school and Mr. Chase down! Chase deserves to be champion. But Duke has a list of signatures. It’s a petition for Chase to get into the Iron Survivor Challenge!

Duke wants to take this to Mr. Michaels, because Chase deserves to be in the match! Chase says he appreciates that, but then Grayson Waller walks in and laughs> Chase sure ain’t street smart, is he? What? Well c’mon, Duke’s been playing Chase since day one! Duke is always about Duke. Duke is fired up and says he’s had enough of this. Waller says he’d have had it by now, too, if he had to spend a whole week getting signatures for someone who’d never be in a title match, let alone be champion. Thea explodes with anger! Duke holds her back, and Chase says HE will whoop Waller’s ass! No, Duke says HE will whoop Waller’s ass. Is the 21st Century Success Story about to have a Teachable Moment?



The man once known as T-Bar is back in NXT, and is simply known as “Dijak.” Will he dish out more #HardJustice to those he deems guilty? Or will Dante Chen prove that Dijak is no hero?

The bell rings and Dijak circles with Dante. They tie up, and Dijak chinbars Dante around to CLUB him down! Dijak then sits Dante up and choke grips! Dante tries to break free, he throws forearms, and he fires off more, but Dijak shoves him out of the ring! Dijak goes out after Dante, but Dante RAMS him into the apron! The ring count starts, fans rally for Dante, but Dijak catches him as he slides into the ring! Dante kicks at Dijak, then runs and builds speed, but runs into a choke grip! SIT-OUT CHOKE SLAM!! Not quite South of Heaven, but Dijak rains down hammer fists of justice! Dijak then hammerlocks, CLUBS Dante, and stands over him.

Dante crawls to a corner but Dijak stomps him down. Dijak drags Dante up but Dante throws body shots. Dijak knees low, whips Dante to a corner and ELBOWS him! And ELBOWS! And CLUBS! Dijak reels Dante in, TIME TO FLY! Dante writhes from that suplex toss, but then Dijak stomps him more. Dante manages to stand up and throw hands but Dijak CLUBS away with more forearms int he corner! Dijak hammerlocks and CLUBS Dante again, but Dante throws back elbows! Only for Dijakc to back suplex! Dante lands on his feet! Dante throws body shots, dodges a lariat and DOUBLE CHOPS! Dante runs, and BOOTS Dijak down!

Fans fire up with Dante, but then Dijak rises and BOOTS Dante back down!! Dijak drags Dante around and hammerlocks him again. “JUSTICE IS SERVED!” HAMMERLOCK SLEEPER!! Dante is a ragdoll, but Dijak hoists him up, FEAST YOUR EYES!! Cover, Dijak wins!

Winner: DIJAK, by pinfall

Dijak gets the mic to say, “That is an example of hard justice! Unrelenting annihilation! I want you to look into my eyes. The only thing that you’ll see is the infliction of suffering. This place, NXT, this is a place of refuge. But not for me, no. I didn’t come here to reinvent myself, to discover myself, no. I came here to eviscerate a soft society and any man who stands in my way. Wes Lee, Dante Chen, Apollo Crews, Bron Breakker, it makes zero difference to me! Every last one of you is nameless, faceless men that will be brought to justice! MY justice.” Hard justice or just sheer brutality, it all seems to be the same in Dijak’s mind. Who will be next to face his law of the jungle?


JD McDonagh walks into the Diamond Mine Dojo.

He told Ivy Nile that she’s been right about her boys biting off more than they can chew. They all know Julius & Brutus are no match for Veer & Sanga. Those two are medical anomalies. Oh, speak of the devil, in walk the Creed Brothers. They ask why JD is here and Ivy says she has no clue. JD is hurt! He and Ivy were just having a talk about how silly it is to take on Indus Sher. Oh, is that so? Well, they don’t care. They know how Ivy feels, she knows how they feel, and they’re not backing down. Indus Sher is ready, but the Creeds’ wrestling skill is unmatched. Julius & Brutus will win this fight fair & square.

JD tells Brutus, “there is no such thing as a fair fight with these guys, and your wrestling isn’t gonna help you, either. These guys, it’s a matter of bone density. You guys are fighters, right?” JD uses the punching dummy as an example. We all know it takes 500 kilos of pressure to crack a human skull, right? Well with Veer & Sanga, it probably takes two or three times that minimum. Brutus says JD isn’t listening. The Creeds have proven doubters wrong their entire lives. Well, that’s cute but JD isn’t a skeptic, he’s an expert. JD is just telling them they can’t do this. It’s impossible. “Impossible” isn’t in the Diamond Mine dictionary. This is all they have, but it’s all they need! So get out!

JD says okay, fine, no problem. Good talk, Ivy. JD leaves, but does he have a point about the impossible odds Julius & Brutus are facing?


HBK and the Hall of Famers begin the discussions.

Shawn Michaels thanks and welcomes Alundra Blayze, Molly Holly, Road Dogg Jesse James & X-Pac for being here. The Iron Survivor Challenge is making its debut, and with Deadline being the final NXT premium event of the year, HBK wants to find the five superstars in both the men’s and women’s divisions that have had the best 2022. And not just from a wins or losses perspective. Road Dogg is grateful to hear that, because he was just wondering why he and X-Pac were here. Speak for yourself, Dogg! But X-Pac does admit, for being the former 1-2-3 Kid, he’s not a numbers guy. He’s had his eye on a few, though.

And that’s what HBK wants! Everyone in NXT brings something different to the table, and that’s why they’re all here. Molly keeps forgetting so many superstars have only had a few years in the business. Alundra remembers being here over the Summer, and seeing where the talent is now, that’s crazy awesome. Again why HBK asked them all here. He wants them all to share their opinions on who should get in. And HBK opens it up to the Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge first. Road Dogg jumps in with the top of his list. The quality of the year, not the wins or losses. CARMELO HAYES! X-Pac had him, too!

Melo is a bit cocky for Molly, but she can’t argue with his resume. Alundra says Melo dresses like a star, acts like a star, and passes the “airport test.” X-Pac says Melo is a Heat Magnet for sure. Alundra teases that X-Pac would know what that’s like. HBK does, too. HBK has talked with Melo, but he can’t not have him in the match. Alundra nominates Tony D’Angelo, and X-Pac is all for The Don of NXT. Dogg says that’s a spicy-a meatball-a! Settle down now. But that big moment beating Ciampa and his rivalry with Santos, but also his health… He might be a couple weeks out. Timing is everything, so maybe it isn’t Tony’s time.

HBK knows Tony would jump on the chance, but this is a case of protecting the talent from themselves. Okay, then X-Pac brings up JD McDonagh. That guy can go. He may not be 6’5″ but you don’t need to be, as these Hall of Famers can attest. JD is on another level. Dogg gets creeped out but JD can go. Molly says that from Halloween Havoc and on, to borrow a phrase from Sheamus, it has been banger after banger for JD. And the Irish Ace really has proven himself. HBK knows JD is in the zone. yes, he’s creepy, but he’s a surgeon in the ring. He has a body part and goes after it. That’s old school and Alundra likes it.

Another guy that has the creepy is Gacy. Molly knows The Schism is gaining momentum, so that would be an interesting element. Dogg listening to Gacy makes him question his own philosophies. Gacy is a leader, especially with Ava Raine in the fold and a big win on Cameron Grimes. Alundra says Gacy knowing who he is, he has to go for the kill, and that’s what we need in this match. Dogg says another guy who is in that position is Von Wagner. Fans may not like him, but he is a force to be reckoned with. X-Pac doesn’t want too many big guys in this. Why not? Is he jealous of the height? So then, is Axiom one Pac’s guys? Yes! Dogg’s too! High-five!

But Axiom isn’t cleared. Did you see how that leg was bent? HBK says going back to Von, what fans have seen has made an impact. Molly says Von has developed, going from main event of the first 2.0 episode and then that match with Bron. But Von hasn’t won the big one, so give him a shot. HBK gets it, the scoreboard hasn’t caught up with the development. Dogg asks about Waller. Yeah, no, he gets the award for the worst. But that makes him perfect! He’ll get heat. And if you’re not a fan of yourself, no one else will be. Is he popular? No. Is he able to win this? Yes! HBK has them all write down their top five and that will be a pool vote. Who will be the top five for the men of NXT?


Duke Hudson w/ Chase U VS Grayson Waller!

Speaking of the not popular Grayson Waller, he might have stepped in it all over again upsetting Chase U’s new star student. Will Duke prove he truly bleeds red ‘n’ black in the white ‘n’ gold? Or will he suffer the Grayson Waller Effect?

NXT returns and Chase U make their entrance. The bell rings and Duke circles with Waller. Fans rally and duel, but Waller dodges to mock the U and then say “SUCK IT!” Duke rushes in, misses, and Waller headlocks. Waller mocks Duke, but Duke powers out to run Waller over! Fans fire up, Duke headlocks and he does lunge steps to mock Waller! Waller pulls hair to get the headlock back, but fans rally for “Chase U! Chase U!” Duke powers out but Waller pulls hair to pull Duke back in! Waller dares Duke to do something shady, but Duke throws body shots instead. Duke powers out, scoops, but Waller slips out to pull hair!

Fans boo but Duke pulls hair back! Duke says Waller wanted it! Chase says no, no cheating! Duke stops, apologizes to Chase, but then Waller JABS Duke to a corner! Waller throws body shots, taunts Chase, then whips Duke corner to corner. Duke comes back to CLOBBER Waller! Fans fire up as Duke scoops Waller, for a SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Waller rolls away to the apron, Duke storms over, but Waller shoulders into Duke! Waller slingshots but Duke stays up to sit on Waller! But Chase tells him no, so Duke doesn’t hold ropes for the cover. TWO! Waller gets away, Duke apologizes to Chase again, but Waller CLOBBERS Duke from behind!

Waller JABS Duke into the corner, throws elbows, but Duke shoves him away. Fans chant “Let’s Go, Chase U! Waller Sucks!” Waller whips Duke corner to corner hard and Duke bounces off buckles. Waller stands Duke up and CHOKES him on the ropes! The ref counts, Waller lets off and he wears Duke’s headband as his own! Waller mocks Chase U while fans boo. Waller drops knees, throws the headband off, then drags Duke up to a cravat. Fans rally as Duke endures, Duke throws body shots. Waller throws KNEE after KNEE and down goes Duke! Waller goes up the corner, walks the rope and mocks Chase U again, but Duke avoids the elbow drop!

Fans rally, Waller CLUBS Duke but Duke fires up! And again! And again! Duke is Hulking out! “U!!” Duke ROCKS Waller, and again, and again! Waller staggers about, into a scoop SLAM! Duke runs in at the corner to clothesline! And OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Fans fire up as Duke JABS, JABS, JABS and flips, flops, flies… “U!!” BIONIC ELBOW! Waller falls out of the ring and Chase keeps Thea back. Duke storms out after Waller, runs in, but Waller moves! The boot almost hits Thea, but Duke stops himself! Everyone calms down, Waller rushes in but Duke ROCKS him with a right! Duke says he can stop at any time now!

Duke gets in, but Waller SLINGSHOT STUNNERS!! Cover, Waller wins!!

Winner: Grayson Waller, by pinfall

Fans boo but the 21st Century Success Story may have just proven he deserves to be an Iron Survivor. “I told you! You know I’m right.” Chase looks at Duke, but is Waller right about Duke’s true colors?


Backstage interview with Javier Bernal.

McKenzie says that most days, she loves her job. But right now… She’s here with Javier Bernal. Hey, McKenzie. It’s the holidays. Let’s put the past behind us. That’s fair. Javi says good, because he loves Christmas. So here’s what the NXT wants and needs. Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and now… BIG BODY TUESDAY~! That’s right! He has big body merch! Wow, really? Yes! Now, no one was going to bat for Big Body Javi to get TV time, but he stepped up to the plate and shows you can to! Introduction the Big Body Baseball Bat! Adam Judge slid into Javi’s DMs and asked him to endorse- Wait, does Javi mean Aaron Judge? Uh… Adam’s his middle name.

Anyway, here’s his next item. Big Body Javi is quite the sex symbol, he’s been told. By who? People… So when you can’t sleep with Big Body, sleep on Big Body with this Big Body Javi Body Pillow! So soft and handsome. Um, Big Body Pillows are trademarked. Uh, no, he knows everything about pillows. He’s been sleeping for five years. What? What? And finally… Men wanna be Javi, and women wanna be with Javi. Um, no… But here, smell like Javi with the BBC: Big Body Cologne. Spritz spritz. It smells like rotten eggs! McKenzie leaves before she barfs, but Javi says his BBC doesn’t smell that bad!

But in steps Axiom! Whoa, hey! What’s he doing here? Wondering what that smell is, for one. That’s the BBC, by Javi. Axiom is also here because he heard Javi’s been wanting to fight him. Javi says “Fight” is a strong, negative word. But even so, that doesn’t matter. Axiom isn’t cleared to compete, right? He is now. He just came from Medical. McKenzie says that’s great! Javi gets what he wants. Yeah, let’s make the match! Big Body Javi may have just stopped into something that smells worse than his cologne. Will the Undeniable Truth prove Javi’s not up to snuff?


Fallon Henley VS Kiana James!

Business is business, but this is personal as the Calculator has been insulting the Henley family every chance she can! And with Brooks Jensen tongue tied and googly eyed over Kiana, Josh Briggs brings him back to the back. Will the Cowgirl handle business all on her own? Or will Kiana make Fallon regret not taking that fat stack of cash she offered by taking the winner’s purse tonight?

The two stalk trash, Kiana pie faces, then the bel rings. The shoving starts, Fallon runs Kiana over, then tells her to get the hell up! Kiana stands, they tie up, and are in a deadlock. Fallon powers Kiana to the ropes, but Kiana turns it around. Fallon turns it back, the ref counts, they end up in a corner. The ref counts, Kiana pie faces, but Fallon pushes her back. The two tie up again as NXT goes picture in picture.

Kiana powers Fallon back but Fallon gets free to arm-drag Kiana down! Fallon grinds Kiana’s arm into the mat, but Kiana fights up. Fallon wrangles Kiana back down then grinds the arm again. Kiana fights up, puts Fallon in a corner, then bumps her off buckles. Fallon staggers, Kiana brings her around to bump off more buckles, then she brings Fallon to another corner. But Fallon bumps Kiana off buckles! And again! Fallon CHOPS Kiana, then snapmares her down to ghost pin! TWO! Kiana escapes but Fallon wrenches her arm to YANK it. And YANK it again! And then twist the wrist into a top wristlock!

Fallon brings Kiana down, wraps up the arm, but Kiana fights up again. Fallon knees low, snap suplexes, and Kiana flops out of the ring. Fans rally as Fallon storms over, but Kiana trips her up! Kiana drags Fallon out to CHOP! But Fallon turns things around to CHOP back! And CHOP again! Kiana is stinging but Fallon puts her in the ring. Fallon storms up but Kiana drop toeholds her down! Kiana clamps onto an arm now and grinds Fallon into the mat. Fallon endures, NXT returns to single picture, and Fallon fights to her feet. Kiana KNEES Fallon low, whips, but Fallon reverses to back elbow! Fallon runs, gets around and sits Kiana down for a CALF KICK!

Fans fire up and Fallon storms up on Kiana. Fallon whips but Kiana holds the ropes! Fallon DECKS Kiana, but Kiana goes to the apron. Kiana grabs Fallon’s arm to HOTSHOT it! Kiana drags Fallon up, CLUBS away on the arm, then brings Fallon over to SLAM the arm on the ropes! Fallon clutches the elbow but Kiana wrenches, hammerlocks, and RAMS Fallon into buckles! Kiana RAMS into Fallon, handsprings back and RAMS into her again! Kiana wraps the arm around ropes and pulls! The ref counts, Kiana KICKS the arm as she lets off. Kiana brings Fallon around, scoops and SLAMS her, then dusts herself off.

Kiana kicks Fallon, SLAMS the bad arm, then mocks her pain. Kiana SLAMS the bad arm again and Fallon screams in pain as she clutches the elbow. Fans rally for Fallon as Kiana kicks her around. Kiana drags Fallon up for an ARM CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO! Kiana is annoyed but she drags Fallon up by her hair. The ref reprimands but Kiana hooks Fallon’s arms up. Fallon endures the top wristlock, fans rally up, and Fallon fights up. Fallon throws body shots, ROCKS Kiana, but Kiana ROCKS Fallon! Fallon ROCKS Kiana, Kiana ROCKS Fallon! Fallon ROCKS Kiana, throws more hands, then runs, but DOUBLE FACEBUSTERS bring both women down!

Fans fire up behind Fallon while the ref checks her and Kiana. Fallon and Kiana stir, Kiana sits up first but Fallon goes to a corner. Kiana runs in but into an elbow! Fallon SOBATS, front kicks, but Kiana ducks the heel kick! Fallon ROCKS, ROCKS and LARIATS Kiana down! Fans fire up and Fallon runs into the corner for a back elbow! Fallon keeps moving but Kiana KICKS the bad arm! Fallon screams in pain again but Kiana drags her up. Scoop, but Fallon slips out to wrench and half nelson, BACKBREAKER, ripcord LARIAT! Cover, TWO!! Kiana is still in this but Fallon keeps on her. Fireman’s carry, but Kiana fights off.

Kiana wrenches the bad arm but Fallon DECKS her with the other! Fallon runs, baseball slides and ROCKS Kiana again! Kiana checks her jaw, Fallon gets in and BOOTS her down! Kiana bails out, Fallon gives chase, but then Kiana grabs her bag. Kiana gets back in the ring, Fallon storms up on her. Kiana throws the bag, Fallon swats it, but Kiana kicks the legs out! And she POSTS Fallon, to drag her back out and 401K!! Cover, Kiana wins!

Winner: Kiana James, by pinfall

A calculated move wins it for Kiana in the end! For Kiana, nothing is personal, it’s just business. But will business be booming if Kiana gets into the Iron Survivor Challenge?


Malik Blade holds up the torn sweater vest.

Odyssey Jones and Edris Enofe are there with him. Jones knows that sweater vest meant something special to Malik, but he cannot let Von Wagner get in his head. Malik is a better man than Von will ever be! Edris agrees, but Malik says this wasn’t even his. It was… his dad’s… This was the last thing Malik had of his. And he gets what they’re saying, but he has so much anger inside. Edris says to use that. Use that anger on Von! That pent up rage! And go whoop Von! They have an hour before that match, so Malik needs to get into the Freak mode! Malik is in that mode! Von better be good at taking an ass whooping, because one’s coming for him tonight!

But he also wants to handle this himself. Malik says Von made this personal, so Malik has to handle this on his terms. Malik’s friends understand. Will “Malik Da Freak” go wild on Vicious Von?


HBK and the Hall of Famers continue the discussions.

Now we move on to the Women’s Division. Same concept as the men’s, so they need a top five. Alundra starts and says this may seem bias, but she’s pulling for Roxanne. They had a moment at Great American Bash, and talk about development. That rivalry with Cora Jade made Roxie into a real threat. X-Pac can’t believe Roxie is only 21. We can’t even talk about what X-Pac was doing at 21. Dogg says they can’t even mention what he was doing at 31, or even last night. Molly says she was 21, she was just starting! She can’t imagine being in this spot at that age. There is so much potential here.

HBK says that’s the thing about the NXT Women’s Division. They’re all hungry, but they’re also frustrated when it doesn’t happen fast enough. Everyone is so impressive just to start at the ground floor. Well here’s the top floor: Zoey Stark. Dogg says she’s such an impressive athlete, it befuddled her that she wasn’t here sooner. And the Iron Survivor Challenge is tailor made for her. Alundra wishes in her prime that she could’ve faced her. But Stark probably would’ve won. X-Pac is surprised “Hunter” hasn’t called and asked to bring Stark over to Raw or SmackDown. Stark is primetime ready. HBK says it is only a matter of time.

But in the end, the job of NXT is to prepare the talent for RawDown. Molly says the internet says Indi is ready for that call-up. Oh, well, if the internet says, it has to be true. But Dogg gets serious and says there is just something missing in Indi. Maybe she doesn’t believe in herself. The fans do, but the superstar has to believe first. X-Pac says fake it until you make it, but there’s no hiding in this match. And someone who doesn’t hide is Cora Jade. Cora’s gotten better faster than just about anyone else in the Women’s Division. Molly says Cora really stepped into her own. When Cora said she is only about Cora, Molly believed her.

Dogg says Cora is also young, but who didn’t think about only themselves at that age? At the same time, Cora is dangerous. Alundra says Cora doesn’t have a problem being that, either. Who throws a title belt in the trash? Well, besides Alundra. That said, what Cora is trying to say is, “This is who I am, take it or leave it.” Dogg leaves it to take Fallon Henley. Fallon and the boys make a good package. She is a dark horse in this. Pretty, tough, and someone you can have a beer with. X-Pac feels a toss up between her and Kiana James, but we just saw Kiana beat Fallon, so he’s giving the edge to Kiana.

Dogg says what Kiana does outside of the ring clearly helps her in the ring. When she walks into a room, she owns the room. She has “It.” HBK asks for any other names we haven’t talked about yet, and Molly brings in Alba Fyre. Alba is perhaps THE best on the roster, and if not for Isla Dawn, Alba would be the champion instead of a contender. Everything is great about her character and her style of throwing caution to the wind. Dogg had Fyre on his list, but scratched it off because she wants after Isla Dawn. Then after that, Fyre can refocus on the title. X-Pac says Dogg is scared Dawn will curse him. Damn right he is! She’s scary!

HBK thanks the panel for their input, but again, time to put down the top five on paper and we’ll figure this out. Time to make some big decisions!


Cora Jade shares a TikTok video.

She mocks “poor Wendy.” It’s just like high school, getting bullied~! She feels so bad. NOT. But will the punk rock mean girl find out what happens when bullies push it too far?


Six Woman Tag: Toxic Attraction VS Kayden Carter, Katana Chance & Nikkita Lyons!

Mandy Rose is still NXT Women’s Champion, but Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne want the tag titles back! Will Toxic Attraction prove they are the top of the NXT Women’s Division period? Or will KC Squared plus the Lioness equal a force too strong for Toxic Attraction to handle?

Wait, ZOEY STARK attacks Lyons during her entrance! She stomps away on Lyons’ leg, but then refs and KC Squared rush over! Stark lets off, having done damage. Fans sing, “Oh~ Zoey is Angry!” Did Zoey’s grudge just ruin Lyons’ chance at getting after the Toxic Goddess? Mandy and her girls mock Lyons, “What a loser!” Will the match be off? Or will KC Squared find a new third before the night is out?


Aoife Valkyrie speaks!

“As a child, I would always watch the sky, watching the birds as they left Ireland for a new place. For a new life. Now I have left my homeland, channeling the spirit of the Morrígan. And as my old feathers fall to the ground, new feathers emerge, stronger. Who you once knew has shapeshifted to a new form, and is ready for a new battleground. Prepare yourself for Lyra Valkyria!” The Black Bird of NXT UK has finally landed in the US, who will she target first?


Backstage interview with Elektra Lopez.

McKenzie asks La Madrina how she feels about Indi’s loss, given their history. Lopez is feeling good, but why is Indi her return? “Biggest impact, lowest amount of risk. Indi has this connection with the NXT Universe which I don’t understand, but it seems like a trend to be an Indi Hartwell fan. But I’m La Madrina, I don’t follow trends, I set them. Whatever it is, Indi is the heart of this division, so if I take out the heart, then it’s mine for the taking.” Lopez didn’t come back to NXT to make new friends, no. She came back to build an empire all her own. If Indi wants to bet on herself, go ahead. But do not bet against La Madrina, or you’ll go broke.


Axiom VS Javier Bernal!

The number one name on the Big Body Files is back! The leg is 100%, so will Axiom be right back on track? Or will Big Body Javi show some big brains and go after that very leg the Irish Ace injured?

The bell rings and Axiom circles with Javi. They tie up, Axiom waistlocks, spins and snapmares Javi to then chinlock. Javi moves around, fight sup, powers out, but Axiom goes up and arm-drags Javi, to then DROPKICK! Javi bails out but Axiom hobbles a bit. Maybe the leg isn’t truly 100%, and Javi rushes in to go right for it as NXT goes picture in picture.

Axiom boots Javi away, then sprawls to turn Javi’s takedown into a facelock! Axiom shifts to half nelson and cover, TWO! The two stare down as fans applaud. The two circle again, tie up, and Axiom headlocks for a takeover. Javi rolls Axiom to a cover, ONE, and Axiom rolls from headlock to wristlock. Javi endures as Axiom twists the wrist and grinds the arm. Javi fights up, wrenches and arm-drags but Axiom holds on to wrench the arm and twist the wrist! Javi fights up, wrenches and wristlocks again, but Axiom rolls, handsprings and wrenches back again! Axiom hammerlocks the arm and grinds Javi down.

Javi sits up, Axiom chinlocks, but Javi fights up. Axiom whips, Javi avoids the roundhouse and bails out. Javi no longer wants this match, but Axiom DIVES to take him out! Fans fire up and Axiom drags Javi back up. Axiom puts Javi in the ring, stalks him, then catches him in a headlock. Axiom grinds Javi down, Javi fights up, but Axiom wrenches the arm again. Axiom wrangles Javi with the wristlock, bends that hand back, then pushes on the arm. Javi endures, but Axiom stays on him as he fights back up. Javi spins, monkey flips, but Axiom holds onto the wrist! Axiom continues to twist the arm as NXT returns to single picture.

Axiom pulls the arm back but Jav endures. Fans rally, Javi fights up and ROCKS Axiom with haymakers! Javi whips, but Axiom rolls and comes back to springboard, but Javi kicks the rope! Axiom falls and fans boo as Javi drags Axiom to the corner. Javi SLAMS the bad leg into the post! Fans boo more, the ref reprimands, but Javi SLAMS the leg against post again! The ring count climbs but Javi slides in at 5 of 10. Javi kicks the bad leg out! Axiom is frustrated but Javi just kicks the leg again. And then dropkicks the leg out! Cover, ONE!! Fans chant “YOU STILL SUCK!” as Javi hits a leg DDT!

Javi drops elbows on the leg again and again, then pulls on the toehold. Axiom endures, fans rally up, but Javi drags Axiom up. Axiom ROCKS Javi in return! And again! Axiom reels Javi in but Javi scoops and SLAMS Axiom down! Javi drags Axiom up, puts him in the corner and pulls the leg against the ropes. The ref counts but Axiom throws haymakers back! And BOOTS Javi down! Fans rally up, Axiom reels Javi in, but Javi lifts Axiom up! Axiom sunset flips, TWO! Javi grabs at Axiom, but ends up in a TRIANGLE HOLD! Fans rally as Axiom throws elbows! Javi throws shots back, fights back up, and deadlifts Axiom for a POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO!!

Axiom survives and Javi can’t believe it! Javi ties up the legs into a FIGURE FOUR! Axiom endures, his shoulders are down, TWO as Axiom sits up. Axiom slaps at the legs, but he falls back again. TWO as Axiom sits back up! Fans rally as Axiom reaches, turns, and turns the hold over! Javi endures the pain now! Fans rally, Javi crawls, and gets the ROPEBREAK! Axiom and Javi are separated, and Javi storms up to DECK Axiom! Axiom stands to ROCK Javi! And CHOP, and ROCK, and whip, and DROPKICK! Fans fire up as Axiom fights through the pain to GAMANGIRI in the corner! Javi flops and Axiom goes up! Springboard, FLYING LARIAT!

Axiom fires up and fans fire up with him! Axiom goes to a corner, shakes the bad leg, and runs in to- MISS as Javi dodges! Javi rolls Axiom to his feet to DDT! Cover, TWO!! Axiom is still in this and Javi is losing his cool. Javi goes to the corner, climbs up, but Axiom GAMANGIRIS! Axiom climbs up after Javi, brings him up, and HALF HATCH SUPERPLEXES! Fans fire up again as Axiom aims, GOLDEN RATIO!! Cover, Axiom wins!

Winner: Axiom, by pinfall

Big Body Javi didn’t just get what he asked for, he got what he deserved! Now that Axiom is back in action, will he make the cut for the Iron Survivor Challenge?


Nikkita Lyons gets checked by the trainer.

Is her leg in any pain? No, she’s good now. Well, nothing alarming then, maybe just some bruising. She is cleared, and Lyons says the only one who needs to start worrying about her health is Zoey Stark! Lyons stands on the leg and says nothing will stop them from fighting Toxic Attraction. Well okay then! It sounds like the match is back on, but will “The Hunter” just go after Lyons again?


Backstage interview with Pretty Deadly.

McKenzie says she’s got the NXT Tag Team Champions here, and they wanna hear that again! The what? The NXT Tag Team Champions. Kit & Elton love hearing that. There has been a lot, and they mean a lot, of Iron Survivor and NXT Deadline talk, but there hasn’t been enough Pretty Deadly talk! As an example, the whole world has been fixated, nay! GLUED to watching the World Cup. World Cup and Pretty Deadly are pretty even, but they’re going to fix that next week. It’s CHRISTMAS TIME! And so Pretty Deadly wants to tell the NXT Universe a little story. A Christmas story, Pretty Deadly style! #YESBOY! But just what does a Pretty Deadly Christmas look like?


Apollo Crews speaks.

“Less than two weeks to go and NXT Deadline is my time. My vision is clear.” But then Bron sits with him at the diner. Bron orders some coffee, and figured Crews would be here. What’s good here? The breakfast of future champions. Oh, yeah? Hmm… Bron doesn’t see that on the menu. Oh, sorry. No more fish to catch? Bron asks if Crews thought Bron didn’t want this match. Crews wasn’t the only one namedropping. Bron is pretty sure Crews couldn’t see past Grayson Waller there for a second.

Crews says looking back, it was actually worth the wait. Now that Crews has been around “the infectious environment” at the Performance Center, he wants a part of it. Crews wants that title even more now than he did when he first walked back in. And that isn’t good for Bron. Bron’s coffee comes and Crews offers him sugar. Bron accepts, and tells Crews that Bron may be “new” still, but when Crews came back and told Bron they’d bump into each other down the road, Bron believed that. Bron knows Apollo Crews is back, so he has to get in the gym at 6:15 AM to make sure his body is in tip top shape.

Crews says that’s why he stays later and later and then still gets there earlier than anyone else. He knows that it will take one hell of a man to take the title from Bron. And Crews is the only one who can do that. Crews watched and studied all of Bron’s matches. Crews can tells the grind is getting to him. Bron says the one who puts the most pressure on Bron is Bron. Crews says in two weeks, that person will be Crews. Being in the ring with Von was the first time Bron didn’t have the strength advantage. Still had the speed. But now, against Crews, on December 10th, Born won’t have either.

But that’s just it! Crews is the perfect balance. But he’s sitting across from a guy with that same skill set. Well, then something has to give. That is something they can agree on. Bron will let Crews enjoy his meal. Bron points out Crews hasn’t finished his sentence. Crews says it’ll finish at Deadline. Has there ever been a time one of Crews’ “visions” hasn’t come true? Nope. Well, there’s a first time for everything. Bron heads out, but will he be the one to write the final word on this showdown?


JD McDonagh VS Julius Creed w/ Brutus Creed!

The Irish Ace says he was just trying to help point things out logically, but there’s always a bit of snark and derision in how JD operates. Will he “help” Julius see what he was talking about in this match? Or will the Diamond Mine prove logic has nothing to do with heart?

The bell rings and the two circle. Julius rushes in and he picks JD up! They end up on ropes, go around, JD slips out but Julius waistlocks. JD moves around but Julius stays on him, and they end up on ropes again. Julius lets off and eggs JD on. Fans rally as JD steps up and shoots around. JD CLUBS Julius, headlocks to a takeover, and he grinds Julius down. Julius fights up, fans rally up, and Julius powers up but can’t power out as JD holds tight. Julius fights up again, lifts JD and hits a BIG back suplex! But JD still has the headlock! Julius tries again but JD hits a flying takeover! JD says Julius is in here with the Irish Ace!

Julius fights up, throws body shots, and he back suplexes to FLIP JD inside-out! Fans fire up as Julius whips JD to a corner. Julius runs in and TOSSES JD across the way! JD flounders to a corner, Julius runs in and clinches again, for another TOSS! Brutus cheers Julius on and Julius HALF HATCH SUPELXES JD! Then he clotheslines JD up and out!

Julius chases JD around the way, back into the ring, but then JD slips back out to trip Julius up! Julius hits the apron hard, JD goes into the ring to run and WRECK Julius with a dropkick!

NXT goes picture in picture as JD grins looking down at Julius. JD goes out to fetch Julius, RAMS Julius into the desk, then CLUBS him in the chest again and again! JD lets off to refresh the count, then he RAMS Julius into the apron! JD THROWS Julius into barriers, goes back into the ring to refresh the count again, then he drags Julius through the corner to bend against the post! The ref reprimands and counts, JD lets off at 4, and JD eggs on Brutus. JD dares Brutus to do something but Brutus says JD will get his. JD goes in and Julius CHOPS JD! Julius ROCKS JD, whips him to ropes, but JD reverses to kitchen sink knee!

Julius sputters while JD goes to ropes. JD runs and drops an ax handle! JD looms over Julius, KICKS him in the side, and stalks him to the ropes to KICK him again! JD bumps Julius off buckles, CHOPS and ROCKS and CHOPS! JD throws hands, but Julius tackles JD down! JD and Julius sit up, JD CLOBBERS Julius back down! Julius crawls to ropes, JD stalks him, and JD throws body shots. Julius drops to a knee and JD pushes him. JD hip drops Julius down, then stomps him! Julius clutches his gut as he goes to the far corner. JD is after him with more body shots! JD CLUBS Julius, then snap suplexes!

Julius writhes and sits up, but JD wraps on a body scissors squeeze. Julius endures, NXT returns to single picture, and fans rally up. JD keeps on the squeeze but Julius still endures. Julius sits back up, but Indus Sher has appeared! Veer & Sanga stare the Creeds down, Julius sits up but JD fires off clubbing shots! Julius hits a BACKPACK SENTON and gets free! Julius stands at the ropes, and he ROCKS JD with a haymaker! Julius LARIATS JD, DECKS JD, then whips JD to ropes for a POWERSLAM! Fans fire up and Julius drags JD back up. Julius suplexes and holds JD, but he drops to his knees! JD throws knees, but Julius keep shim up!!

Fans fire up as Julius stands back up to SLAM JD down! Julius roars and the fans are with him! Sanga smirks as Julius ROLLING SPINEBUSTERS JD! Julius wants JD to sit up, but JD bails out instead. Julius goes out the side, runs in around the way and he CLOBBERS JD! Julius makes sure Indus Sher saw that, and he goes back for JD. JD crawls back into the ring, things speed up, Julius hurdles but JD whips him. Julius turns hip toss into OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Julius has JD in a corner, another OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Fans rally, Julius stands and he stalks JD. Julius runs in but JD slips out, Julius hits buckles!

Julius runs in but JD dumps Julius out! JD aims from the apron to PENALTY KICK Julius right down! But then Julius springs right up!? Julius waistlocks but JD fights the German Suplex! JD headbutts Julius away, stands back up, and he ASAI MOONSAULTS Julius down! Fans fire up for “NXT! NXT!” as JD drags Julius back up and in. JD stalks Julius, CHOP BLOCKS a leg, then pushes on it like he did to Axiom! Julius endures but JD keeps pushing! Julius crawls, reaches out, JD loses his grip and Julius elbow shim away! But then JD trips Julius! Julius BOOTS JD all the way out of the ring!

Fans rally as JD sputters and stands back up. JD drags Julius out again and over to the corner to SLAM the leg on the apron! Julius flops out of the ring, clutching the knee. JD pulls the apron skirt away and brings out a chair! Fans boo and Brutus protests. The ref tells JD not to, and JD swings, but SANGA shoves Julius to take the hit!?

Winner: Julius Creed, by disqualification

The Fighting Gentleman still shows that honor, but now he shows that rage as he glares at JD! JD backs up and bumps into Veer! JD says he’s not their enemy, the Creeds are! Indus Sher walk over to Brutus & Julius, and Veer says he wants them at nothing less than 100%! The Creeds nod, and Ivy Nile comes out to check on Julius. Will this be the most savage and yet respectful battle either team has ever been in?


Alba Fyre speaks.

“Isla Dawn. The Unholy Enchantress. Your debut altered the course of history. But whatever spirits told you it was a good idea to target me must really have it out for you. Your actions have ignited a fury that you cannot contain. And keeping me from delivering my promises will lead to your ultimate demise! You wanna have fun, Isla? What I do to you will be anything but fun.” The Fire Keeper is ready to burn the Wicked Witch, but when and where will these two battle in the ring?


Dijak is heading out.

Channing Lorenzo asks if he has a second to talk. Who does Stacks think he’s talking to? The Don would like to have a word with Dijak. Tony D’Angelo walks over to say they come in peace. Introductions aren’t needed, Dijak knows exactly who Tony is. Terrific! Thanks for softening up Wes Lee, Tony appreciates that. Dijak isn’t here to do anyone favors. Wes Lee was just the first. Yes, and he won’t be the last. They know. Tony loves it. Dijak used to be a big deal around here, and Tony’s always had a good relationship with the authorities. Between the two of them, before this hits the web, Tony’s back in action next week!

So whether Wes is on the list or not, Tony will see to it that Wes’s days are North American Champion are numbered. Do they have an understanding? Something like that. Dijak leaves, but will #HardJustice be served on The Don as well as the Must-See Kid?


Malik Blade VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

All Malik wanted to do was have a good time, and Vicious Von had to go and literally attack him. Worse yet, he had to destroy an heirloom of Malik’s late father! Will Malik Da Freak be unleashed? Or is this still Wagner’s World, and Malik is just living in it?

The bell rings and Malik goes right at Von! He dodges a haymaker to fire off hands of his own! Fans fire up as Malik ROCKS Von, then has him in a corner for more! Von shoves Malik away, but Malik comes back to rain down more fists! Von shoves Malik away again, knees low, then scoops to SLAM Malik down! Stone says Malik doesn’t know what he’s messing with!

The ref counts, Von gets in the ring and Malik follows, but Von KNEES Malik down! Fans boo but Stone says that is what he’s talking about! Von drags Malik up, reels him in, but Malik sunset flips! Cover, TWO!!! Von escapes, Malik wobbles up, Von BOOTS him! Von knees low, knees again, and Malik is wobbling. Von whips Malik to ropes, but Malik KICKS back!

Winner: Von Wagner, by pinfall

Malik unleashed all that rage, but it just wasn’t enough! And now Von wants more! He trophy lifts Malik, but Edris runs in! Only for Von to BOOT him down! But now ODYSSEY JONES is here! Jones fires off haymakers on Von, then dodges Von to CLOBBER Von! Fans fire up and Jones clotheslines Von out of the ring! Von lands on his feet, though, but Stone has Von stand down. Jones is all fired up, will he #SoundTheAlarm on Wagner’s World?


HBK announces the Iron Survivor Challengers.

Shawn Michaels thanks the Hall of Fame panel to help make these decisions. The five men in the Iron Survivor are: Carmelo Hayes; JD McDonagh; Grayson Waller; and Joe Gacy. But the fifth and final man in that match will be decided next week in an Iron Survivor Wild Card match! And the five women in the Iron Survivor are: Zoey Stark; Cora Jade; Roxanne Perez; and Kiana James. And just as with the men, there will be an Iron Survivor Wild Card match to determine the fifth! Who will be the last ones into these high stakes matches?


For the men, it will be a TRIPLE THREAT! Von Wagner VS Axiom VS Andre Chase! Will Von make the most out of the momentum he just got tonight? Will Axiom’s return be even more spectacular? Or will Professor Chase make his students proud?

For the women, it’ll be another TRIPLE THREAT! Wendy Choo VS Fallon Henley VS Indi Hartwell! Who redeems themselves from recent losses to get in on this historic match?


Six Woman Tag: Toxic Attraction VS Kayden Carter, Katana Chance & Nikkita Lyons!

Let’s try this again! The Toxic Goddess and her girls are even more confident than earlier with Lyons taking damage from Zoey Stark. But will nothing stop KC Squared and the Lioness from taking the numbers game to Mandy, Gigi & Jacy?

NXT returns and the tag champs make their entrance, Lyons by their side. Lyons’ knee is taped and she has her head on a swivel for Stark, but the trios sort out. Jacy starts against Katana, and fans rally up as they circle. They tie up, Jacy knees low then CLUBS Katana on the back. And CHOPS her in the chest, then CLUBS her on the back! Jacy throws Katana down, then runs to SENTON! Jacy says, “And that’s why we’re THE attraction!” Jacy fireman’s carries but Katana fights free. Jacy whips Katana to ropes, Katana goes up and over and dropkicks Jacy down! Gigi and Kayden both get in and talk trash, but then so do Mandy and Lyons!

Fans fire up as the brawl is on! TRIPLE SUPERKICKS take Toxic Attraction down! Fans fire up as Mandy gets up, to get a BOOT from Lyons! Katana helps Kayden go up to SUPER CROSSBODY Gigi!

Mandy waistlocks, Kayden slips out and trips Mandy. Mandy ducks the buzzsaw but not the HEEL KICK! Cover, TWO! Kayden waistlocks Mandy, she switches but Kayden bucks the O’Conner. Kayden also dodges Jacy’s cheap shot! But then Mandy CLOBBERS Kayden from behind, Kayden ends up on ropes to get DOUBLE KNEE SANDWICHED from Jacy & Gigi! Mandy drags Kayden up, puts her in the Toxic corner and RAMS into her! The ref counts, Mandy tags Gigi, and Gigi stomps Kayden down. Gigi snapmares and KICKS Kayden, then taunts Katana and Lyons. Kayden throws body shots but Gigi CLUBS her back!

Gigi bumps Kayden off buckles, tags Jacy in, and Jacy taunts Lyons’ bad leg. Jacy runs to back body block! Mandy tags in, they mug Kayden, and Mandy pushes Kayden around. “You are nothing! You are nothing!” But Kayden fires off forearms on Mandy! Mandy knees low, scoops but Kayden slips out to shove and dodge, only for Mandy to SPINEBUSTER! High stack, TWO! Mandy wraps on a body scissors squeeze, but Kayden pushes back to a cover, TWO! Mandy runs in but into an arm-drag! Kayden jumps but Mandy catches her! Mandy keeps Kayden from her corner but Kayden sunset flips, TWO!

Kayden dumps Gigi out but Gigi drags her out to join her! They brawl, Kayden whips but Gigi reverses to send Kayden into steps! But Katana LEAPS off the steps to CROSSBODY Gigi! But KNEE FROM A ROSE by Mandy!

Jacy CHOP BLOCKS Lyons’, but Lyons avoids the super punch! GERMAN SUPLEX! Lyons fireman’s carries but Mandy saves Jacy! The ref reprimands, Lyons swings, but the bad leg gives up to ruin the heel kick! Mandy laughs at Lyons and Jacy CLOBBERS Lyons! Tag to Gigi and Toxic Attraction aims, TOXIC ANNHILATION!! Cover, Toxic Attraction wins!

Winners: Toxic Attraction, by pinfall

Give an assist to Zoey Stark from earlier tonight, Lyons’ leg did not hold up because of what she did to it. And Zoey is even watching from the perch to make sure everyone knows it. In the end, Toxic Attraction stands tall, but will they bring about another era of them draped in gold?

My Thoughts:

A great NXT here, but NXT feels so talky these days. Granted, the Iron Survivor Challenge panel discussion needed to be a lot of talking, but NXT has had a lot of promos lately. The panel discussions were good, felt very much like NCAA Football Playoffs talk. I didn’t expect them to weirdly not tie stories right into the match, such as moving Alba Fyre aside so she could focus on Isla Dawn, but in the end, that works out for story because now we can just have Fyre VS Dawn 1v1 in a huge match. I do like the four surefire names they put in for each, though the men’s feels rather Heel heavy. Given that, I think a Face wins the Men’s Triple Threat Wild Card, and I’m leaning towards Axiom.

I say that because not only is Axiom awesome and he would really do great in the Iron Survivor Challenge, but Chase has his own story to focus on with Waller planting the seed that Duke isn’t genuinely on Chase U’s side. Maybe something happens next week to make Chase doubt Duke more, but I hope in the end that Duke stays Chase U for life. In the Women’s Triple Threat Wild Card, Roxie just beat Indi and Lopez called Indi out, I feel like she’s not the one. Wendy will want revenge on Cora, Fallon will want revenge on Kiana, but I think Wendy’s grudge is stronger than Fallon’s, so I’d put Wendy in.

Speaking of all those names, good stuff in those matches that put over Waller, Kiana, and Roxie. Great return match for Axiom against Javi, that made Javi look really good even though he lost. Axiom also had a good tribute to Jason David Frank with that green ranger style outfit. I hope Javi ends up facing more names on that long list of his. Javi is quickly coming into his own as a character because I was cracking up with his Big Body botched merch. Great interview promo from Pretty Deadly, and I have no idea what to expect from their “A REAL Christmas Story” bit next week, but it’ll surely be hilarious.

Good stuff out of Malik VS Von, up until Malik drove his own head into the mat with that sunset flip. It was clear he knocked himself for a loop, but luckily he and Von were able to finish that off. Another reason Von isn’t getting into the Iron Survivor is because Odyssey Jones is coming after him for their own feud. Great stuff out of Julius and JD, as well as Indus Sher technically making the save. I like Veer & Sanga riding the Tweener line, being brutal in their matches, but respectful otherwise. They’re going to have one hell of a match with the Creeds, and I think Indus Sher takes it, but I’m wondering where Ivy Nile is going to be in the middle of all this. I just feel like Ivy is going to leave Diamond Mine to side with Indus Sher.

I didn’t know Dijak was going to just be called Dijak, I just put that there myself, and then it worked out. Hard Justice seems to also be a Tweener, since he called out Faces but also didn’t just side with Tony D’Angelo when talking about dethroning Wes Lee. It’s a bit early but I feel like we get a Triple Threat for the North American title so that no one is really hurt in the result. Dijak can be dominant but either Wes or Tony can capitalize on his work to survive with the title, and then we see Dijak take on the champ 1v1.

Bron and Crews had a decent diner promo, though it seemed rather odd that it was happening at all. Every time I feel it’s the right time to dethrone the top champ, they don’t do it, so I can’t be sure what I’m feeling for this one. Maybe Crews wins to achieve his goal and send Bron to RawDown, maybe we see Bron win and take on the inaugural Mr. Iron Survivor. Good stuff in the Toxic Attraction story, but also Zoey Stark’s story. Of course Stark attacks Lyons and delays the Six Woman Tag until it’s the main event. And of course that very same attack is why Lyons couldn’t capitalize and take out Mandy. Toxic Attraction winning sets up a tag title match for Deadline, and we could still see Mandy VS Lyons.

And as I just said, every time I think the top champ is going to lose, they don’t. For all I know, Stark loses the Iron Survivor Challenge and makes sure Lyons loses the title match in the usual Heel move. But since we just saw Isla Dawn do that, maybe that isn’t the route they take here. Great to see Aoife Valkyrie, now Lyra Valkyria, making her way to NXT USA. I hope she finally gets going like she was meant to in NXT UK before the injuries. Valkyria will take the long route but I expect her to be a contender by the time we’re talking about NXT Stand & Deliver: Hollywood.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (11/29/22)

Newark gets Dark!



Will Newark APPRECIATE Garcia, Menard & Parker?

AEW moves on from Thanksgiving and prepares for December! Winter is Coming, but who will be primed for golden opportunities?


  • Six Man Tag: The Factory VS Justin Corino, Ryan Mooney & Steve Josifi; The Factory wins.
  • Zack Clayton VS Chris Wylde; Clayton wins.
  • Hikaru Shida w/ Hagane Shinno VS Layla Luciano; Shida wins.
  • Six Man Tag: The Jericho Appreciation Society VS Tracy Williams, LSG and Jack Tomlinson; The JAS wins.
  • Brian Cage w/ Prince Nana VS Tony Deppen; Cage wins.
  • Angelico VS Hagane Shinno; Angelico wins.
  • Emi Sakura w/ Baliyan Akki VS Tiara James; Sakura wins.
  • Six Man Tag: Hardy Party VS The Wingmen; Hardy Party wins.


Hikaru Shida bringing along Hagane Shinno (formerly known as Madoka) is interesting. More Japanese promotions seem to be willing to let talent work with AEW, and that of course helps AEW get recognition internationally, and helps those promotions get recognition in the USA. Shinno will definitely get a win off Angelico, but AEW’s already such a full roster, who knows if Shinno will see any TV time.

Good to see the Wingmen together again, even if it’s to lose to Hardy Party. But even the Trios Division needs its lower midcard, and that is where The Wingmen will be. Matt Hardy & Private Party might end up becoming The Firm’s Trios Championship contenders if they keep building up wins on AEW YouTube. They could give whoever comes out of the Best of 7 Series a great match, and we could see a lot of overbooked, “internal conflict” of whether Hardy Party is Face or Heel, same as we’re seeing with Death Triangle always resorting to the hammer.

UPDATE: Welp, didn’t think Angelico would win but he did. I guess not ever new star that comes into AEW can just get a free win.
