NXT and NXT UK have a collision course called Worlds Collide! A few championship matches and dream matches tonight! How’d it turn out?

Rhea Ripley and Toni Storm face off for the fourth time in the WWE machine, with Toni having the early 2-1 advantage. Will Rhea’s title reign get stopped before it really even gets started?

DIY versus Moustache Mountain should just be good fun. It will either steal the show, tickle us with amusing crazy spots…or…well…maybe both?

Plus we all want to watch WALTER slap the soul out of Adam Cole again! So let’s get to the show!

Ratings:

  • Pre-Show: Kay Lee Ray vs Mia Yim: KLR wins via Dirty Roll-Up @9:15 – **
  • Finn Balor vs Ilja Dragunov: Balor wins via Bloody Sunday @14:00 – ****
  • NXT Cruiserweight Championship: Isaiah Scott vs Jordan Devlin vs Travis Banks vs Angel Garza (c): Devlin wins via Devil Inside @12:05 – ****  – TITLE CHANGE!!
  • DIY (Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano) vs Moustache Mountain (Trent Seven & Tyler Bate): DIY wins via Meet in the Middle @22:55 – **** 1/4
  • NXT Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs Toni Storm: Rhea retains via Rip Tide @10:15 – ***
  • Imperium (WALTER, Alexander Wolfe, Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel) vs The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong): WALTER wins via Powerbomb @29:50 – **** 1/4

 

Analysis:

Pre-Show: Kay Lee Ray vs Mia Yim – This was a solid back and forth, with a little bit of history dating back to the WarGames lead up.Mia looked to be in control after Code Blue, Eat Defeat and a Canadian Destroyer. KLR had a few moments here and there, but she never seemed to be in control. Mia Yim looked to have a shot with the O’Connor Roll, but KLR rolls through and falls backwards using the ropes conveniently. Solid enough opening match, with the heel champion winning in a heel way.

Finn Balor vs Ilja Dragunov – Well..wow. Nigel did a great job painting the picture of Ilja’s backstory. Explaining how he was homeless and had nothing, added to excitement when he started coming back at different points. The dive fake, that turned into an interesting Bottom Rope Splash to the outside was really interesting. Dragunov’s Roman Style Deadlift Suplex Hold looks great, and Finn sold dead during the execution. Simple but exciting Splash style dives, the rope hung Coast to Coast looked good, and this really did a great job at getting Ilja over to a bigger audience. Finn was able to quell the younger wrestler and put just enough together to escape with the win and maybe a broken nose. Damn great match that helps Ilja build to future glory.

Cathy Kelly interviews the BROserweights and Grizzled Young Veterans. Amusing is the dynamic between Dunne and Riddle. Every time Dunne used weed wordplay, Riddle looked around like a dog who smells bacon. Good stuff. 

NXT Cruiserweight Championship: Isaiah Scott vs Jordan Devlin vs Travis Banks vs Angel Garza (c) – Usually multiple person Junior style matches have their issues, but this was surprisingly fantastic. The moves made sense, no real cliche spots and each man got a decent chance to shine. Travis Banks looked great, he had a decent chunk of time where he was taking people out and stacking them in the corner for a big Cannonball Splash. He also had a great near fall after Slice of Heaven and a Kiwi Crusher (is that just the move of New Zealand wrestlers). Scott had a few late moments to grab the win, but a Doomsday Dropkick/Poison Rana combo messed that up a bit. Garza hit the Wing Clipper on Scott, but Devlin slides in, breaks up the pinfall with a deliberate Headbutt. Devil Inside on Swerve and we have a new champion! Great stuff, fun match, innovative spots but never felt like gymnastics for no reason.

DIY (Tommaso Ciampa & Johnny Gargano) vs Moustache Mountain (Trent Seven & Tyler Bate) – So they really play up the nostalgia and dueling babyfaces for the first part of this match. Lots of respect, lots of old classics and playful spots before the match gets more serious. Nice callbacks to each team’s history when DIY had the stereo submissions, like when they beat The Revival, but Moustache Mountain fights out. Moustache Mountain hits the Knee Drop/Burning Hammer combo that won them so many matches early on in the WWE matches, but that gets broken up. Given that this was really just a dream match with a bunch of feel good/nostalgia callbacks, there’s not a ton to extract story wise; it was really just a great match between four guys who are pretty damn good at what they do.

Mercedes Martinez and Dakota Kai are spotted in the crowd, but as soon as they get to Dakota, Tegan Nox comes out of nowhere and beats the ever living hell out of Dakota. Sets up a little for their match on NXT, but a little unnecessary to be honest.

NXT Championship: Rhea Ripley (c) vs Toni Storm – With all the history these two have already, this was easy enough to get invested in, but it fell a bit flat. Rhea took that Release German into the turnbuckles and then the whole match took an odd pace. Rhea also working most of the match from underneath is counter productive for how they’ve been building her as a resilient power house. All in all the match was alright, but felt really awkward or slow or just paced poorly at different points. Thankfully, they’re both young so we’ll have plenty of future matches to keep this one under the rug.

Imperium (WALTER, Alexander Wolfe, Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel) vs The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Kyle O’Reilly, Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong) – Well now, holy different kind of a match Batman. Alexander Wolfe got knocked out of the match after a double team move from Roddy and Fish, and it looked legit. At that point the match felt a bit more on the fly/called in the ring, whatever you want to call it. Imperium was rattled early on, some moves weren’t perfect and there was a lot of talking between faction members which was either wonderful acting that they had to improvise, or them actually improvising. Either way, the fact that Imperium was a man down early, behind the eight ball and obviously shaken this made for an interesting story.

We saw the pack mentality of Undisputed Era in full effect, where Imperium stood strong to their gimmick of “the mat is sacred”. They never took shortcuts, Aichner and Barthel got a good amount of shine for themselves, but WALTER was the star of this show. Every time he got in the ring, he was a difference maker. So much so that Roddy, Bobby and Kyle all focused him to find a way to put him through an announce table. Era realized that they needed to win while WALTER was down, and that’s when Aichner and Barthel showed that the team wasn’t just all WALTER. Great pin break ups, double teams and awesome work from the main tag team of Imperium. WALTER is then seen on the apron, he gets the tag, we get a lot of chaos that ends in everyone except Fish and WALTER doing big wipe out dives. Fish attempts a Moonsault, misses, John Woo Dropkick from WALTER, Powerbomb and Imperium survives the deficit.

 

Overall Score: 8.25/10

Aside from the Ripley/Storm match, this was a pretty electric card from start to stop. DIY and MM I feel could’ve been better if they didn’t double down so hard early on in the obvious respect/comedy spots for nostalgia and waiting for the crowd to rally to be cute. Still the kind of match that showcases all four competitors even though there was no real story of the match beyond “we’re better”. Imperium and Undisputed Era was cool since the injury angle made it feel old school and new school all at the same time.

All things considered, damn good show. No real complaints, and they even moved TV storylines forward with the Tegan Nox moment and Bianca jawing at Rhea after she retained. Now for the best gif to come out of this show, and how many of us feel about things that happened tonight.

Join Sam Roberts and McKenzie Mitchell in discussing, analyzing and predicting all of tonight’s action.

 

NXT shares Team “Black ‘n’ Gold” meeting backstage after NXT on Tuesday.

Johnny Gargano apologized to the team for not winning the WarGames advantage, but they’ve been at a disadvantage since day one of 2.0. Pete Dunne says it doesn’t matter that Team 2.0 has the bloody advantage. Dunne’s been in WarGames before, those guys don’t have a clue. LA Knight says, “I dunno, man. Guys, I’m just not sure at this point. Word is on the street is maybe we bit of more than we can chew. I mean, look at ’em. They’re big, they’re strong. I mean, what can we do, right? WRONG! 2.0, let me talk to ya! Tonight, you got the advantage. Huh? I said, tonight you got the advantage, YEAH.”

Knight wants Team 2.0 to live that up, absorb it, let it sink in. That advantage, that illusion will get shattered. These four, when they are put to pressure, when they’re told no, when they’re told, “We don’t want you here anymore!” THAT is when they excel. Knight is with excellence! The Bruiserweight, one of the longest reigning NXT UK Champions. The FIRST NXT Triple Crown Winner, Johnny Wrestling. And the current TWO-TIME TWO-TIME NXT Champion? What does that mean? Dues paid in full, time and again. Some want to say that stuff doesn’t matter. It matters to Knight! It matters to them!

So for Sunday, you ain’t gotta like them or even respect them. Because once the cage comes down and the rings are in place, these four step into the ring, each and everyone of Team 2.0 gets the respect stomped outta their asses! That isn’t an insult, that is just a fact of life, YEAH. Tommaso Ciampa adds that Team 2.0 knows they messed up by looking across the ring and seeing DIY. Who? D I Y. Together again! Representing black ‘n’ gold. And there’s one thing they like to say about that: “WE are NXT.” The 2.0 boys better be prepared for war. Game on.

 

Team 2.0 talks backstage.

Trick Williams says, “Here’s what we gotta do. Strap up your boots, grab the protein shakes, because tonight, our lives are about to change forever! We goin’ viral tonight.” Grayson Waller likes the sound of that! But Andre Chase walks in and says if they’re not talking strategy right now, then this is a #TeachableMoment! Aw man, c’mon… Just hear him out. “You don’t go to war without a good game plan.” And who better to be the general than Andre Chase? Chase thinks Waller should start, then- Whoa, whoa, whoa. The A Champion, Carmelo Hayes, kicks things off. When Melo shoots, he don’t-

Bron Breakker shows up as he slaps Chase on the back. He asks how everyone’s doing. Good. Chase is calling the shots? Y-Yeah…? Hey, Tony, what do we call guys like that? Stunatz. They all laugh at Chase and Tony says they don’t need Chase’s help. But maybe Chase should walk or there’s gonna be problems. Alright, but don’t come asking him for help later. Who even is this guy? Chase leaves, Team 2.0 fist bumps all around. Will they be ready for what Team Black ‘n’ Gold brings to the cage?

 

NXT takes a closer look at the Women’s WarGames match.

Mandy Rose says Toxic Attraction has changed NXT, because Toxic Attraction is the attraction. That is why they are the faces of 2.0. And by the way, thanks, Dakota. But in regards to #CobraKai and Big Mami Cool, what started at Halloween Havoc could end here tonight. Common enemies make for unlikely allies, and Raquel Gonzalez says her team “is the definition of WarGames.” Cora Jade says this is the stage where she belongs. Kay Lee Ray says they have the advantage, and Io Shirai says WarGames didn’t change her, she changed WarGames. Mandy doesn’t get why the other team is so confident when her team has all the gold, plus the wild card in Dakota.

Gigi Dolin says there will be no mercy, and Jacy Jayne says, “Let the Toxic Games begin!” They are ready for war! Dakota smiles at the idea that they’ll all be trapped in the cage, like animals! Raquel vows her team will tear the cage down and kick some toxic ass. Who runs the NXT Women’s Division after tonight? That match opens the show!

 

The battle lines have been drawn!

The game has changed, but the mission is the same: win. The stakes have been raised, the gates have been opened, and bad blood will boil over. NXT is in a state of WARGAMES!

 

Women’s WarGames: Io Shirai, Raquel Gonzalez, Kay Lee Ray & Cora Jade VS Dakota Kai & Toxic Attraction!

The Evil Genius, Big Mami Cool, the Scary Queen of Scots & #GenerationJade have the advantage against #CapKota and the golden trio of women’s champions. But will that help Shirai, Raquel, KLR & Cora end the arrogant attitudes of Dakota, Mandy, Gigi & Jacy?

After all their entrances, KLR goes right into the cage, and she’s bringing her baseball bat! Dakota starts for her team, and she makes sure to bring some kendo sticks with her.

Then SMACKS her on the back! Mandy sees Cora in the other ring and goes right for her. Shirai grabs at Mandy’s leg but Mandy kicks her away. Mandy grins as she picks on Cora. “Does your arm hurt?” Mandy drags Cora by the arm! But Shirai CLOBBERS Mandy and kicks her away!

Toxic Attraction regroups with Dakota, but Shirai, Raquel & KLR stand in their way! WarGames truly begins now, in that it can finally end, and it is clear Cora is the target. Shirai and team dare Toxic Attraction to try when they all have a kendo stick. KLR looks at Cora, and creeps over. What is KLR thinking? Dakota jumps in and get a SMACK! KLR then tosses the stick to Cora so she can defend herself as the brawl breaks loose! Shirai is after Gigi, Mandy and Jacy mug Raquel and KLR avoids a DDT to chairs from Dakota, but she still gets knocked down by Gigi! Dakota covers, Shirai breaks it! Mandy pulls Shirai’s hair but Shirai gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, Jacy breaks it!

Jacy gets a chair, sets it down, Shirai runs in but FULL METAL SPINEBUSTER! Jacy runs but Raquel CLOBBERS her! Gigi runs at Raquel, tilt-o-whirls, but Raquel blocks the DDT with power! Raquel puts Gigi up top, SMACKS her off steel, then gets Jacy up. Raquel brings Jacy around, adds Gigi to it, but Mandy SMACKS her with a kendo stick! Toxic Attraction picks on Raquel, KICKS and SMACKS from all sides! Gigi RANAS Raquel into a chair, Jacy FULL METAL DROPKICKS! Double cover, but CORA smacks that apart! Cora has one arm to use that kendo stick with, but she retreats to the second ring as Toxic Attraction & Dakota regroup.

Cora fires off with the kendo stick on everyone! But she gets knocked down, and they sit her up for Mandy to stomp! Mandy runs, KNEE FROM A ROSE! Cover, TWO!! Cora survives and shocks everyone! Cora is surprised, too, but Mandy drags her up to go after the bad arm! Dakota keeps KLR down, Gigi & Jacy stomp Raquel, but Shirai springs up and has a kendo stick to SMACK Mandy! KLR schoolgirls Dakota into buckles! Jacy SMACKS Shirai with a chair, then Gigi BOOTS KLR against the steel. Raquel gets Jacy for a CHINGONA BOMB! Double BOOTS take Gigi and Raquel down! Cora is the only one up! She hurries to high stack Jacy, HER TEAM WINS!

Winners; Io Shirai, Raquel Gonzalez, Kay Lee Ray & Cora Jade, by pinfall

The underdog with one arm comes through for the team! What a big win for them all, will this lead everyone to bigger and better in the near future?

 

Team Black ‘n’ Gold meet in the locker room.

Ciampa says, “Boys. WarGames.” Huh? WarGames! YEAH! Gargano finally gets into a WarGames. Could also be his last, but he’s excited to be in one with these guys. Knight says it’s his first, too, but Dunne and Ciampa have been in this before, but one thing they’ve all done is have that big match feeling. In the other locker room is a bunch o’ boys because they ain’t ever felt this before. They have a glimmer of hope because of the man-up advantage. Well someone told them the wrong damn story, YEAH! Ciampa asks Bruiserweight his input, Dunne just shrugs. Beautiful. But this is big for them. Tonight, it isn’t just their moment. This is Gargano’s moment. Is that to say Gargano kicks off WarGames for his team?

 

NXT Tag Team Championships: Imperium VS Kyle O’Reilly & Von Wagner!

Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner do not respect the team of #CoolKyle and big Von Wagner. It may be that they’re still rather fresh as a duo. It may be that they do not show the same reverence for the ring. And it’s most certainly because as Europeans, they look down on Americans. Will the Impeccable German & Pride of Italy keep the mat sacred? Or will Kyle & Von make Imperium admit in all languages that they greatly underestimated them?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we’re about to see if arrogance gets in the way of dominance!

Aichner stomps Kyle around, rains down fists, then he talks trash to Von. Aichner drags Kyle up to RAM him into the corner. Tag to Barthel, Barthel whips Kyle again but Kyle ducks Aichner’s clothesline to BOOT Barthel! Kyle KNEES Aichner down, and Imperium both tumble to the floor!

Backstage interview with El Legado Del Fantasma.

McKenzie asks them about Santos Escobar’s huge match with Xyon Quinn this Tuesday. Escobar will put it this way, first in Spanish, then in English, “Xyon Quinn bit off more than he can chew.” Reality hits Xyon in the face. Then what about Elektra Lopez meeting up with Xyon last week? McKenzie, they are familia. Their affairs are solved behind closed doors. And just to be clear, Elektra is a grown ass woman. What she does on her time is none of your business. Elektra storms off, Legado follows after. But will that business be settled when Escobar takes on the Gentleman Fighter on NXT?

NXT Cruiserweight Championship: Roderick Strong w/ Diamond Mine VS Joe Gacy w/ Harland!

Apparently, a 205 pound weight limit is offensive? Well, NXT’s Mr. Inclusion does make a point that the world should be a better place for all.

Not only does Strong keep this title, he keeps it the Cruiserweight title! Will Diamond Mine never crack under pressure? Will Gacy stop trying to change the way things are done in NXT? Or will this only motivate him to try even harder?

 

Backstage interview with Kyle O’Reilly.

McKenzie asks what happened after their tag title loss, and Kyle says, “You know I’ve been in this business a long time, right? And Von Wagner, if you didn’t think I smelled that turn coming from a mile away, you must be stupider than you look!” This is the first time in five years Kyle wasn’t in a WarGames match, and he’s hungry for some steel. So if Von wants to finish what he started, they can leave that cage up for Tuesday, because Kyle wants him inside that steel! A vicious challenge has been issued to Von, will he have the guts to take on #KillerKyle?

Team 2.0 sends Tony D’Angelo! And Tony gets right in as Trick sends in kendo sticks!

Trick brings TABLES out! Trick passes those in to Tony and Waller, they get three tables in the ring! Melo SMACKS Gargano with the kendo stick, Trick adds trash cans to the mix! Lids included! Wait, a crutch!? Trick goes way under the ring, but LUMIS appears!! Dexter Lumis, bad hand and all, has just changed the vibe! Gargano DECKS D’Angelo, and gives Lumis a thumbs up! Tony uses a chain to DECK Gargano! Melo positions things, Tony uses the chain to shut the cage door?! Then how is anyone supposed to get in, Bron included?

My Thoughts:

I wasn’t sure what to expect from the first not TakeOver for NXT, but that change seems to only be in name only. Whatever anyone has been thinking about the 2.0 era, especially the 2.0 talent introduced, I feel like those featured on this card earned their keep. The Women’s WarGames was an awesome opener, BIG respect for Cora Jade doing the riskiest spot of the match. Great story telling with the bad arm, and I just had a feeling Cora would end up getting that pin. Not sure where everyone goes from here, though you can expect Toxic Attraction to put all those titles on the line as soon as New Year’s Evil 2022 in a month against any combination from the Face team tonight.

The tag title match was greater than expected, seems Von Wagner has come into his own at just the right time. I figured Imperium was winning, mostly because it was too soon for Wagner to hold gold, but also because of talk that Kyle O’Reilly has not signed a new NXT contract. Von turning on Kyle was more of a surprise, I thought this here was the “Good-Bye” match, but maybe Kyle VS Von in a cage match will be that farewell that puts Von over. Personally, I think a lot of why Kyle is moving on is because WWE didn’t care to keep Bobby Fish around to do a reDRagon reunion story so that they could be tag champions again. That and RawDown is not promising at all for Kyle. It isn’t all that promising for anyone, but especially not for the Undisputed Era boys.

Speaking of, Strong VS Gacy was a very good match, and it felt like a rare case where WWE did Heel VS Heel. Strong isn’t Face, he still has all of Diamond Mine at ringside. Gacy isn’t Face, Wade Barrett the Heel commentator was fully supporting him, and he has Harland. Harland and Niles interacting was an interesting way to basically tip things in Strong’s favor. But I figured Gacy was losing so that the NXT Cruiserweight Division and its title stays in existence. Now they just need to push some Cruiserweights to be viable challengers. Too bad WWE released a lot of good choices over the last few months…

Grimes VS Hudson was a really good match, and of course Grimes wins. All that hair, it’d be a shame to cut that all away. Though that makes this feud really one sided right now. Too bad they didn’t get to keep the Million Dollar Championship, Hudson would definitely want to hold that belt. And we got an awesome Men’s WarGames main event. I’m a bit surprised both teams with advantage won, but I suppose that Team 2.0 was going to win since we’re in NXT 2.0 and there’s no going back to the black and gold color scheme. Everyone got to look great in it, such as Waller doing the risky spot like Cora did, and then DIY getting to be DIY again. But Bron getting the win and the pin on Ciampa, that’s a big indicator that New Year’s Evil sees a rematch of those two. Maybe the new year brings a new champion?

“In a world where survival is everything, two sides prepare for battle.”

Who survives? Who owns the night? It all collides, and here tonight, anything can happen! “See? I told you it’d be epic.”

Big E VS Roman Reigns w/ Paul Heyman!

Raw has already won Survivor Series in more ways than one, but this isn’t about the brands.

Will the WWE World Champion make the Reigning, Defending, Undisputed Universal Heavyweight Champion ACKNOWLEDGE E?

My Thoughts:

A pretty good Survivor Series, but look at that. Another heavily Raw biased booking from Vince. Priest VS Nakamura was a good kickoff match but Nakamura didn’t even really win that because they wanted to push “The Damian inside” for Priest. I wish WWE knew what the hell they were doing with the King of Strong Style. Maybe the build to #WWEDay1 makes Nakamura and the Intercontinental Championship look good. Also they changed to logo for Day 1 so… Okay. Still would’ve rather had TLC. The Women’s Champions opening was a surprise, but what an awesome match! We may not have wanted a title swap, but we got a match that made it all pay off. Becky winning with ropes was a bit of a surprise but I suppose this was one way to keep things alive between the two.

I really thought the Battle Royal would be before the 5v5 matches, and I was wishing that the pizza boxes were closer to ringside so someone could be thrown out onto the pizza. At the same time, that’d be a waste of pizza and then the Profits wouldn’t get to be pizza Robin Hoods, throwing them out to random fans. Battle royals are definitely the perfect match for Omos because he’s so big. Then in the Tag Champions match, I did not expect RKBRO to win. I thought the Bloodline would’ve held it down for SmackDown, but I guess this goes with the Raw bias. At the same time, fans love RKBRO, I’m sure this win was to acknowledge that.

The Men’s 5v5 being first was another surprise, but it was a great match. Kevin walking out was an awesome Heel move, they cleverly gave us a double slingblade spot from Rollins and Balor, and Rollins being Sole Survivor is huge. I think that will feed a lot of momentum into his title match with Big E. Meanwhile, the Women’s 5v5 felt like a mess, and I’m pretty sure fans were either doing the wave or Beach Ball Mania off camera during the middle of it. It was too much story of the Sasha Shotzi dysfunction that wasn’t even consistent. At least copy the “misunderstanding” Sheamus had with Hardy for Shotzi and Sasha. Anything else was forced and awkward, especially considering Bianca makes a huge comeback to win as a sole survivor.

I know Red Notice is a hit with The Rock, Ryan Reynolds and Gal Gadot in it, but did it have to be integrated into the show? Of course, I’m remembering back to Batista’s move with the zombies influencing a match during ThunderDome Era so I guess this is just going to be a thing every time WWE can line up a PPV with one of their stars’ big movies. Makes me wonder what we’ll get when Black Adam debuts. That said, using that gold egg as a plot point is weird, and literally a Vince idea with Vince being involved in the promos. Couldn’t they just have used it for a Gobbledy Gooker gag?

Lesnar’s “suspension” being “lifted” is clearly an indicator that we’re on the build to the Royal Rumble where Lesnar will go after Roman. Roman VS Big E was awesome stuff, though the pacing was a bit slugging at a point. Roman winning cleanly was the biggest surprise of this, but I suppose it is better that we didn’t get something overbooked with the Usos and Woods and whoever else getting involved. Roman still wins, as expected, and he’ll definitely address Lesnar no longer being suspended on SmackDown while Rollins rubs in his win and Big E’s loss in on Raw.

My Score: 8.6/10
