PLAY BY PLAY

The Beast opens Raw!

With the Road to WrestleMania in the home stretch, the WWE World Champion returns once again! He successfully retained against Ricochet at WWE Super Showdown and Paul Heyman gives his usual introduction for himself and the reigning, defending, undisputed WWE Heavyweight Champion of the world, BRRROCK! LESNARRR! And Heyman apologizes because he “can’t do it.” This is literally their job to come out and hype the fans up on WrestleMania. Heyman gives credit where credit is due, and while this will be the most stacked WrestleMania in years, the main event “is a sham.” Fans can boo all they want, but we all know that “they” are trying to sell us on Drew McIntyre. Ladies and gentlemen, Drew McIntyre “is a hyped up fraud.”

Heyman wants us to understand why we cheer so much for McIntyre. At the Royal Rumble, Brock Lesnar didn’t just survive 15 “of the top stars in WWE,” he massacred those 15 consecutive top starts, only to get hit from behind in the balls by Ricochet. That left Lesnar vulnerable to McIntyre’s Claymore that sent Lesnar up and out, eliminating him from the match. Fans cheer that, “like the Pavlovian dogs I tell you you are.” But there are no excuses as to McIntyre kicking Lesnar in his face and out of the ring, “but how in the hell” does that prove McIntyre can pin Lesnar? HE CAN’T! How does that prove McIntyre can submit Lesnar? HE CAN’T! It just shows McIntyre can take advantage of a situation. And the next time Lesnar sees McIntyre, it’ll be over like that.

And why is that? “Because Drew McIntyre is nothing more than a stupid, big bitch that’s going to get squashed at Wrestle-” Here comes McIntyre! The Scottish Stud has that Terminator stare on Lesnar as he heads to the ring. McIntyre gets in the ring and in Lesnar’s face. Fans cheer for “Drew! Drew!” as Lesnar grins. Lesnar backs away, but what about Heyman’s promise? Lesnar rushes McIntyre but gets a CLAYMORE!! McIntyre kips up as fans lose their minds! Well, it was over “like that,” for Lesnar. Can McIntyre do that again at WrestleMania?

Heyman helps Lesnar out of the ring, both men completely shocked at what just happened. The fans troll with “You Deserve It!” and “Hey hey hey! Good-bye~!” as Lesnar and Heyman go up the ramp. Lesnar stares out at Brooklyn as he reaches the stage, but McIntyre runs back out! CLAYMORE AGAIN!! The Scottish Stud snatches up the WWE Championship to hold it up! Lesnar rises and fans want “One More Time!” CLAYMORE THE THIRD!! Brooklyn loses its mind all over again as McIntyre stands over his future opponent! Will McIntyre be the one to slay the Beast once and for all?!

 

Raw Tag Team Championships “Now or Never” Match: Seth Rollins & Murphy VS The Street Profits!

Super Showdown was their first chance, this is their last! If Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins fail to dethrone the “Monday Night Pariah” and “Murph the Smurf,” they can never challenge for these titles again, so long as they belong to Rollins & Buddy. Is this the motivation the Profits need to get the smoke?

“Where Brooklyn at? Where Brooklyn at?” Brooklyn lets the Profits know “We Want the Smoke!” Tonight is now or never! Ford & Dawkins have worked for YEARS to get this opportunity! If Rollins and Murphy get the win, then the fight is over. But the joke’s on them. When the pressure’s on, the Profits cook. So Brooklyn better get the Solo cups out because the Profits are up! The tag team champions make their entrance now, and we begin this all or nothing rematch!

Murphy realizes what happens and hurries up top, but Ford gets under the leap. Ford sends Murphy out, Rollins rolls him up, TWO! Ford spins Rollins to ENZIGURI! Rollins is down but Ford fires up as he heads up top! But Rollins shoves Ford down! Ford crashes ‘n’ burns on the floor and the AOP calm down. Rollins calls them over and they stalk up to Ford! The ref sees this before they can do anything, and EJECTS THEM! Rollins is furious but he puts Ford in for himself. Murphy and the AOP keep arguing, and here comes KEVIN! STUNNER!!

The ref never saw that, and Kevin gets away before AOP gives chase! Dawkins BLASTS Murphy into the timekeeper’s area! Ford hurries up top with Rollins in position, for the WORLD STAR SPLASH!! Cover, THE PROFITS WIN!!

Winner: The Street Profits, by pinfall (NEW Raw Tag Team Champions)

Now or never? How about NOW!? The Profits are at an all time high because they have the gold! Will the Road to WrestleMania become a red Solo cup party?

 

Raw returns as Rollins and Murphy regroup backstage.

Charly Caruso asks them about the defeat. “Oh good for you!” Rollins seethes as he reminds us that anyone who stands in his way will be eradicated! He is the Monday Night Messiah! Rollins and Murphy demand to take on the Profits, take DOWN the Profits and take BACK those Raw Tag Team Championships. As for Kevin Owens, he can name the time, the place and the stipulation. Because when Rollins gets his hands on Kevin, Kevin will be crucified. Will the passion of the Prizefighter cost him everything?

AJ Styles w/ The OC VS Aleister Black!

The Phenomenal One and his Good Brothers roughed up the Embodiment of the End, but now he’ll be the one to face the consequences. Will Aleister add on to the humbling The Undertaker gave Styles at Super Showdown?

Well Styles isn’t taking that stupid advice, because Styles is on a collision course with Taker. Hopefully Taker is watching tonight. After what Styles does to Aleister, Taker can consider it a warning. Taker may be a legend among legend, but he’s just holding onto a spotlight that isn’t his anymore. “It’s mine! It’s the Phenomenal AJ Styles!” But now, Aleister makes his entrance, and this payback match begins!

Styles wants Aleister to wait a moment. Aleister is getting the fight he wanted, but he didn’t read the fine print. To get at Styles, he has to first go through the “toughest man in the building, Karl Anderson!” What? Since when? The Machine Gun gets in the ring and this audible is approved!

Backstage interview with Ruby Riott.

After returning just to betray her former friend, Liv Morgan, she and Liv will now have it out 1v1, but with their one mutual friend as the special guest referee. Sarah Logan will be officiating, but did Ruby herself ever see the Riott Squad end up like this? Ruby says that people make and break promises on a daily basis. They show themselves to be loyal then disloyal in a single breath. The only person Ruby cares about now his Ruby. And in the Elimination Chamber, Ruby will prove she can strike whenever she pleases. And the WWE Universe will realize there are no friends inside the Chamber.

The Riott leader has only made enemies of her friends, and now Sarah shoves her down! Liv enziguris Ruby! But then Sarah KNEES Liv!

No Way Jose and his conga line are backstage!

But they encounter Erick Rowan. Why all the mystery on his pet? Can’t they just see what’s in it? They want to see? Yeah! Well he’s been waiting for someone to finally ask nicely. Rowan will do Jose and his amigos a favor, and show them the pet. Rowan pulls the tarp up, opens the door and brings out… a SPIDER!! “Don’t you want to see my friend?!” Everyone runs away from Rowan’s eight legged little friend and Rowan puts him back in the cage. Now that we know what is in the cage, there’s one more question we must ask: What is it’s name?

While the Empress of Tomorrow will meet the Riott Squad, the Queen of Harts and the Queen of Spades in the Elimination Chamber, the Pirate Princess revives a rivalry from her days in NXT! Will Kairi represent the Kabuki Warriors well against the bloodthirsty Baszler?

Before the match, Kairi and Asuka grab mics to give introductions. “Shayna, Shayna, Shayna. You are lucky tonight!” Asuka’s wrist is keeping her from competing tonight, which is upsetting. But Kairi says “I got this!” So at Elimination Chamber, Asuka promises to take out all her opponents, and get one more chance at Becky at WrestleMania! Kairi laughs and Asuka says she’s hungry for Baszler! But speaking of, Baszler makes her entrance and this NXT revisit begins!

Shayna and Kairi circle around the ring. Kairi teases Shayna then goes after a leg but Shayna throws her off. Kairi gets up and circles with Shayna again, and the two feel out the approach.

Shayna throws Kairi down again and Becky dares Shayna to try that with her. Will both women get their wish and have a WrestleMania showdown on the horizon?

There is blood between these four men. Bad blood, that is. Who wins this incredible lucha libre battle for the ages?

Raw returns from single picture as El Latino makes his entrance. From the entrances, La Muneca is back by El Idolo’s side, but will Garza keep from taking that personally?

Beth Phoenix returns to Raw!

The Glamazon goes to the ring and takes up a mic. “I really appreciate being given this time on Monday Night Raw. I’m here tonight to give a medical update on my husband, Edge.” But before she can, Randy Orton appears! The Viper has already decimated the Rated R Superstar and V1 Matt Hardy, “apologizing” but refusing to explain. Beth glares at Orton as he walks to the ring. Orton wants a hug but she keeps him at arm’s length. He offers a handshake instead. Beth can’t believe he’s even thinking she’d dare do such a thing after what the “son of a bitch” did? Orton paces, and then takes a seat in a corner to let her continue with her news.

Beth says she isn’t really surprised Orton is here. But this is great, because if anyone needs to hear this, it’s him. Beth is here as the wife of Adam Copeland who needs her husband. She is here as a mother of their children because they deserve a father. Maybe there is a possibility- Orton hops down off the corner and starts pacing again. Beth keeps her eyes on him as he gets himself a mic. “I know what you were going to say.” There is not a possibility but a certainty that Edge will never wrestle again. Orton owes Beth an explanation. He says he’ll give her one, but he’s not sure how to put it to words. Orton starts with a “little story.”

Back in the October of 1999, there was a live event in St. Louis, where Orton lives. Cowboy Bob Orton took Randy to meet WWE agents because Randy wanted to “Break into the business.” Backstage, Orton was just a fan despite growing up in the business. To see Austin, HHH, Michaels, Foley and others, that was amazing. But the one to show respect to Bob was Edge. Randy was so proud to be the son of a legend. Edge said Bob was one of the best Heels ever. Bob was one of the reasons Edge was in the business. Bob introduced Randy to Edge, Edge looked at Randy with all the sincerity he could muster as he wished Randy luck in making it to the same level. Randy used that as motivation to go from being insecure to becoming who he is today.

Then Orton and Edge were in main events for the WWE Intercontinental Championship stealing the show ever night. Then Rated RKO became a team and became tag team champions. Just when things were the best they could be, Orton flew too high, hit a rough patch and made some poor life choices. He dug a hole so deep that he should’ve been buried in it. But he wasn’t, because Edge pulled Orton out of it and saved him. Orton realized there’s more to life than wrestling! Orton found a wife, had kids and helped his kids through life! All of that is because Edge saved him! So what Orton was doing was returning the favor by saving Edge.

At the Royal Rumble, the fans were just SO excited to have Edge back, even Orton had goosebumps. It was an amazing feeling, but then Edge came back the next night. Edge thought he was back for good. Edge thought he was going to be full-time again. Orton knew better. Someone was going to make a name for themselves off Edge, and they were going to ruin Edge’s life. Orton says he was doing Edge’s family a favor. Orton wanted Beth to have her husband. He wanted their daughters to have their father home. How are they doing, by the way? Because thanks to Orton, Edge can go on hikes, ride bikes and take them to things. Orton did it out of love for Edge, Beth and their daughters!

Beth is getting emotional, but Orton points out the sad truth: “Everybody blames me for what I did.” They think Orton is selfish, but Beth knows that it isn’t that at all. The one to blame is BETH. She’s an enabler! If Edge was a drug addict, she wouldn’t give him those drugs. If Edge was an alcoholic, she wouldn’t give him a beer. But Edge is a junkie for the CHEERS! And Beth did NOTHING to stop him! Orton had to step in as a brother and did what he did so that Edge could be Adam Copeland! Fans are divided and Beth is conflicted. But Orton says that putting it into words, he realizes something. Orton loves Beth’s family more than Beth ever could! What?! Now fans are a bit upset with Orton, but “the truth hurts, don’t it?”

Beth glares at Orton and SLAPS him! Orton keeps his cool, turns back around, and stares Beth in the eye. Beth doesn’t back down, he calls her a “b*tch” and she kicks low! Orton RKO’s Beth Phoenix!! And then storms off. Referees rush out to check out on her and fans are speechless. The Viper crosses yet another line, but will he ever face the consequences? Natalya, Rey Mysterio, R-Truth, Zack Ryder, Curt Hawkins and even D-Von come out to check on a long time friend. Is the Glamazon going to be okay? Not just physically, but emotionally?

 


 

My Thoughts:

For Super Showdown not being the best, this Raw was pretty great! And that’s considering it had to go right into go-home mode at the same time. For one, Heyman gives another good promo, and McIntyre just decimates Lesnar! We’re still far out from WrestleMania so this shouldn’t affect McIntyre’s math. We need him to dethrone Lesnar in an epic showdown or it’s all for naught. Then the Raw Tag Team Championship match was great, much more worthy of a PPV. It’s so great for Ford & Dawkins to have the titles, but I really hope they aren’t just giving those right back to Rollins and Murphy at Elimination Chamber.

I do not get what Vince is doing to Ricochet. Lesnar squashing him easily was unfair but logical. Ricochet not beating Riddick Moss for the 24/7 Championship is just awful. For a title that has given fans a lot of laughs, and is now making a serious turn, why not give it to a seriously amazing wrestler? If Ricochet could shock the world leaping out of the ring and to the floor with ease, imagine what he could do as he runs around with this title just to avoid being rolled up!? VINCE!! Also, I was hoping Ricochet would reunite with Aleister in a more organic method than the Dusty Rhodes Classic and Vince’s lack of ideas. Aleister went through an OC gauntlet, but will now have a No DQ match with Styles. I hope Ricochet helps keep Gallows & Anderson out of it to give us that reunion.

I actually really liked how the Riott Squad segment went tonight. Sarah was trying to keep the peace during last week’s contract signing and tried again in the match, but of course the tension and such got to her, too. Liv getting the win tonight and then Sarah immediately turning on her was all good, and their segment in the Chamber match will be good all on its own. Sadly, we didn’t get quite the same build out of Shayna, Kairi, Asuka and Becky. Only Vince could ruin this rematch. The story beats were here, but not at all paced the way it should have been. Obviously Shayna was going to win, like she will on Sunday, but I don’t think it helped anyone. Becky doing her best Tyson Fury meets Conor McGregor was odd, too. Since when has The Man been flashy like this? VINCE!!

Thankfully, the last match and the last segment made up for a lot of that. The tag match was incredible! It was just so fast moving and rich with story, and how great for Carrillo to get the pin? I wish we were getting a United States Championship match for the Chamber, but there’s still Mania, obviously. If you put these four in a match together where now it’s every man for himself, maybe even add ladders, and the US Championship could steal the show. And of course, the closing segment with Beth and Orton was powerful. I think Orton got real cheers. But of course, we all knew an RKO was coming at some point. We never got the medical update, so I’m thinking maybe we get that next week, and it’s revealed Edge CAN wrestle, and is coming for revenge!

My Score: 8.5/10

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?

 

DIJAK VS ???

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.

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.

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 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! Fans fire up while JD hurries back up. JD drags Julius out and CHOPS! Julius brushes that off and says it’s go time! 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! Von runs but Malik avoids the knee drop! Malik storms up to whip, Von reverses but Malik goes up and comes back to LRAIAT Von down! Von gets up but Malik DROPKICKS him out! Fans fire up and Malik hurries out to CLUB Von on the back!

Malik SMACKS Von off the apron, ROCKS him again, then smacks him off the desk! And again! Stone can’t believe Malik is doing this! 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! Malik is still slugging, but he manages to SCOOP SLAM Von!? Fans fire up for Malik as he shakes out the stars!

Malik climbs up top, and FROG SPLASHES onto knees! Von then hauls Malik up, DEATH VALLEY BOMB! Cover, Von wins!

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?

BREAKING NEWS on that!

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! And then Katana PLANCHAS Jacy! Fans fire up as Lyons and the champs stand tall! Katana goes out, fetches Jacy into the ring, and she brings Jacy up, only for Jacy to wrench and DECK Katana! Tag to Mandy, she drags Katana up but Katana JAWBREAKERS back! Tag to Kayden and the tag champs double whip THE champ to a drop toehold, chancery and dropkick! Cover, TWO! Kayden fireman’s carries but Mandy fights free.

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!

Fans are torn as Gigi SWITCHBLADE KICKS! Tag to Mandy, she hauls Katana up, BACK SUPLEX SLAM! Katana sit sup, into a KNEE FROM- NO, Katana gets around to roll her up! TWO, CODE BREAKER!

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!

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?

AEW Coverage

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

Newark gets Dark!

Published

on

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?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • 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.

QUICK NOTES

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.
