Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament Group B: Isaiah “Swerve” Scott VS El Hijo del Fantasma!

The round robin continues into round two as Beth Phoenix and Mauro Ranallo return to commentary! Swerve fell to Akira Tozawa but there are still two more matches to rebound. Will he be able to recover against the Son of the Phantom?

The bell rings and Fantasma circles with Swerve. They approach and tie up to go around. Fantasma wheelbarrows to a takedown, cover, TWO! Fantasma says he was close but Swerve grits his teeth.

Fantasma survives and Swerve is frustrated again. Swerve looms over Fantasma and drags him into some ground ‘n’ pound. Swerve works to get a half nelson but Fantasma resists the lift. Fantasma blocks by grabbing his own leg, but Swerve clubs him on the back. Fantasma fights free but Swerve shoves. Fantasma goes up and over and dodges to huricanrana back! Swerve bails out, but Fantasma slides. Swerve dodges, goes back to the apron and BOOTS Fantasma down! The ref starts a ring count while NXT goes to break.

And with that, Swerve is back in the game! He and Fantasma are tied, and now it will come down to the final round! Who will take Group B as their own?

On-stage interview with Swerve.

Congratulations on a critical win in the tournament. “I told you!” Swerve has all the respect for Fantasma. They know each other from before the WWE, but Swerve has told us that he needs this more than anyone else. When the game is on the line, give the ball to Swerve. He just has one more to go to make the Cruiserweight Division into Swerve’s House.


NXT hears from Dominik Dijakovic.

Johnny Gargano is playing the victim, but Dijakovic isn’t sure what Gargano’s the victim of. Gargano wants to remake NXT in his image? That sounds awful. He wants to “revolt against the establishment,” but that establishment is what put him on 46 THOUSAND TakeOvers. Dijakovic’s family taught him to respect those who create and define him. The Garganos don’t want to do that. They rambled on and on about everything, but he never once mentioned how he’d back up his words. Dijakovic wants Gargano to back up those big words by taking on a big guy like him.


NXT shares what happened during commercials.

Fantasma was giving his own thoughts on the match with Swerve when the golden luchadors tried to strike again! Fantasma again ran them off, but this is starting to get out of hand! When and where will these mysterious masked men try again?


Candice LeRae w/ Johnny Gargano VS Kacy Catanzaro!

The #PintSizedPixie is now the Pint-Sized POISON of NXT! And Mr. Wrestling is hyping up the smartest and most thoughtful woman in the world. She steps in the spotlight she deserves, as Johnny puts it. Will Johnny’s favorite wrestler finally make her mark on the NXT Women’s Division?

The bell rings and Candice circles with KC. They tie up, and Candice pushes KC to a corner. The ref calls for the break and KC circles with Candice again. Candice calls for a test of strength, and the two lock up.  Candice powers KC back but KC bridges. KC keeps her shoulders up but Candice sweeps legs. KC kips up and arm-drags Candice away! KC waistlocks and O’Conner rolls, then handsprings to headscissor Candice away! Candice dodges in the corner to snapmare and neck snap! KC gets to the apron and shoulders in. KC sweeps the legs then slingshot sentons! Cover, TWO! KC drop toeholds, and then leaps for a corkscrew splash, only to land on knees! Candice pushes KC over for a cover, ONE! Candice grows frustrated but she drags KC up. She scoops KC for a sidewalk slam! Cover, TOW! Candice keeps on KC with a chinlock. Candice leans on KC but KC endures.

KC fights up but Candice throws her down! Candice drags KC away to cover, TWO! Candice gets KC in another chinlock and digs her knee into KC’s back. KC fights her way up but Candice whips. KC wheelbarrows but Candice throws her down! Gargano applauds while Candice puts on his hold. But KC rolls Candice up, TWO! Candice CLOBBERS KC with an elbow! Candice is mad now, and she CHOPS KC, then ROCKS her with a forearm! She fires off furious strikes in the corner! Candice lets up at 4 but rolls and clubs KC back down! Candice hooks the legs up in a deathlock, to then surfboard STOMP KC down! Cover, Candice wins!

Winner: Candice LeRae, by pinfall

The “Wicked Stepsister” gives the poisonous Candice her first win in a long time. But that’s not good enough for her, she puts on the GargaNO Escape! She tortures KC, and Gargano adores it! Will this twisted fairy tale have a happy ending for Mr. & Mrs. Wrestling?


Damian Priest speaks.

“It’s almost time. My moment has arrived.” Keith must be hurting after what Priest did to him. Must be hard to take a deep breath. But the running is over. Priest finally gets to finish what he started months ago. And when the night is over, Keith will be basking in the glory of the NEW North American Champion.


NXT returns to Matt Riddle and Timothy Thatcher on stage.

Riddle says there has been a lot of criticism on the WWE for putting random guys together in a tag team. But Riddle and Pete Dunne are a legit team, because they won the Dusty Rhodes Classic, and then won the NXT Tag Team Championships. But Riddle and Thatcher are a real team, too. Riddle knows Thatcher like the back of his hand. If he knew the back of his hand for two weeks. But they will prove to everyone why they’re the best tag team, on the first ever episode off. THE NEWLY-BROS SHOW! What? Thatcher has no idea what’s going on as Tom Philips introduces Byron Saxton as the host of this “show.” Riddle and Thatcher take a seat, and Byron introduces them both. Legend has it, Thatcher once pulled a man’s eye out of its socket. Canned audience laughter. Is that true? Yeah. Well okay! And then Byron talks to Riddle. Riddle loves hearing the sounds of the ocean in a seashell, and loves Pina Coladas and getting caught in the rain.

Moving on, Byron talks the rules of this game show. Now gentlemen, or bros, the rules are pretty simple. Byron will ask a question, one writes their answer on the whiteboard, the other verbally guesses the answer. They start with Riddle. What did Riddle have for breakfast? Thatcher’s just confused as to what’s going on here. He has no idea! “No idea, bro!” Correct! Huh. “Bro, I don’t even know what I had. I usually wake, the wife bakes, and she’s a really good cook. … What were we talking about?” Well good thing Riddle isn’t competing tonight. But now, what is Thatcher’s favorite TV show? Thatcher doesn’t even have a TV. Really? Yes. Then has he ever considered buying one? Well if the price is right. “The Price is Right!” Wow!

But if Thatcher doesn’t own a TV, does that mean he’s never Netflix & Chill’d? Thatcher doesn’t need Netflix to “chill.” Aww yeah, now that’s a stallion right there! Right? Well, Byron probably doesn’t know. Well thanks for that, Riddle. But on to the third question! Thatcher, as a pro-wrestler, where is the craziest place that he’s done it? Obviously in a ring. But there was one time where he had a Triple Threat in a laundromat. “3 sum on a washer.” Uncanny! Riddle’s mind went straight to the gutter. But the universe has big plans for them, bro. It’s destiny. Byron senses a lot of chemistry here. So you know what that means? Time to play for the big money! This is the SPEED ROUND~! Nah, bro, speed’s not really Riddle’s thing.

But speaking of speed, Imperium attacks fast and furious! Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner attack Thatcher & Riddle! They apparently aren’t fans of fun game shows. They RAM Riddle into railing and then beat him up even more! And back suplex him up and OVER the railing onto the floor!! Riddle is wrecked but Thatcher comes back for revenge! Thatcher throws Aichner into the ring and clubs away! Barthel runs in but gets clubbing hands, too! But the 2v1 is too much for Thatcher! They beat him down then drag him to a corner. Barthel climbs up and Aichner lifts Thatcher, EUROBOMB!! Imperium talks trash to Thatcher while bringing the NXT Tag Team Championship belts into the ring. Will they be the first to challenge the “Newly-Bros” for those titles?


WWE continues to team with Make-A-Wish!

When we come together, the power of a wish is realized. But help them make more wishes come true by donating to the cause.


Adam Cole speaks.

“Per General Manager, William Regal, it looks like next week, we’re going to get The Velveteen Dream VS Adam Cole for my NXT Championship.” The fact is, Cole is the reality, and Dream is an Experience no one ever wanted. Dream does NOT deserve this shot, but this is what Cole will do. Cole will show up, show out and leave as the longest reigning NXT Champion of all time. The Dream will end and there is nothing Velveteen can do about it. And that is Undisputed.


Charlotte Flair VS Mia Yim!

Five years ago, they were not the Queen or Head Baddie in Charge we know today. They have grown stronger, faster, tougher, sharper and better following their own paths. Charlotte says this match is to “thank” Mia for that match, but Mia wants to prove she’s not just a “good hand.” Will Mia refuse to bow down and start a one-woman uprising against The Queen?

The bell rings and the two circle. Charlotte grins as she and Mia tie up. Charlotte powers Mia to a corner but the ref counts. The break is clean and Charlotte still grins. Mia and Charlotte circle and tie up again. Charlotte headlocks and grinds Mia down, but Mia powers up. Mia can’t power out as Charlotte holds tight, and Charlotte eggs her own. Charlotte knees low then CHOPS! And CHOPS! Mia falls and Charlotte circles her. Charlotte brings Mia up to whip, but Mia reveres. Charlotte tumbles out then shoulders in hard. She slingshots to roll Mia, TWO! Mia dodges the boot and JABS! Mia kicks and knees and back kicks to PELE! Charlotte staggers, Mia CANNONBALLS! Mia steps in to tornado DDT! Cover, TWO! Mia keeps focus as she stalks Charlotte. She waistlocks but Charlotte elbows out hard. Charlotte throws haymakers and has control again.

Charlotte CLUBS Mia on the back then whips her to ropes. Mia holds those ropes all Spider-Man, then baits Charlotte in. She sends Charlotte out, but runs into a forearm! Charlotte catches her breath while NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Charlotte drags Mia up to throw her back out. Charlotte waits for Mia but Mia is in quick. Charlotte stomps away on Mia at he ropes! She stops at the ref’s count, to bend Mia back against the ropes! The ref counts and Charlotte lets up at 4. Charlotte puts Mia in a corner to CHOP again! Mia staggers away but Charlotte keeps after her. Charlotte wraps Mia’s arm on the ropes and pulls! She taunts Mia while slapping her around. Then she CLUBS Mia down again! Charlotte drags Mia up and whips her to ropes. Mia swings into a back suplex but lands on her feet! Mia staggers around but boots Charlotte back! Then knees! Mia goes up and catches Charlotte in the TARANTULA! The ref counts but Mia lets up at 4. Mia reels Charlotte in but Charlotte pulls hair! Charlotte elbows Mia down to the mat then takes a moment to catch her breath.

Charlotte taunts Mia as she kicks her around. “Bow down!” Mia hits back but Charlotte stomps her harder for that. Charlotte drags Mia up, but Mia counter punches! Mia forearms away but Charlotte shoves. Mia dodges to wrench and feed Charlotte SOLE FOOD! But she runs into Charlotte’s backbreaker and buckle shot! Charlotte has Mia int he drop zone and heads up top. But Mia trips her to the mat! CODE BLUE!! Cover, TWO!! Mia’s best moves aren’t enough and she can’t believe it! But she just keeps on Charlotte with kicks! This is her “welcome back” to NXT! Mia runs, but her code breaker is blocked! Charlotte has a FULL BOSTON CRAB! Charlotte says she MADE NXT! Mia endures, drags herself towards ropes but powers out of the hold! Cover, TOW! BOOT!! Cover, TWO!! Mia survives but Charlotte is smiling!

Charlotte drags Mia around, has the leg, but Mia cradle counters! TWO, and Mia grabs Charlotte for an STO! Mia keeps going, wrap the arm, but no knee smash! Figure Four to FIGURE EIGHT!! Mia taps, Charlotte wins!

Winner: Charlotte Flair, by submission

The HBIC didn’t bow down, so she got knocked down! But The Queen may see now that this NXT is tougher than she thought. And braver, too, because here comes Io Shirai! The Evil Genius is the #1 Contender and wants to make sure Charlotte knows that right away. Shirai talks trash in Japanese, and then says in English, “Next week, you are MINE!” The NXT Women’s Championship match is happening already! Will Shirai take Charlotte’s crown away already?


NXT, “We gave you fair warning.”

Scarlet says the reckoning is undeniable. You can’t stop what is unstoppable. And next week, time is up. The clock stops. Tick tock. Karrion Kross is making his in-ring debut next week!!


Kayden Carter is with Kacy Catanzaro backstage.

KC is being checked over by one of the medical trainers after what Candice did to her. What is the medical update after that match? It’s mostly her neck, but the evaluation isn’t over. Candice and Johnny come by to warn them. This is a new NXT, so get used to it. Will the other superstars listen to this ultimatum?


Finn Balor will return to NXT!

After the incident backstage last week, The Prince is FURIOUS that he could not have his #1 Contender’s match against Velveteen Dream. He will return to expose the culprit and confront them! Who attacked Balor? And for what reason?


Dexter Lumis VS Shane Thorne!

The eerie and sadistic superstar has only gotten stranger the more we’ve seen of him. He seems obsessed with the Undisputed Era and helped Velveteen Dream to defeat them. But can he focus on The Worst with that thousand yard stare?

The bell rings and Thorne is wary of Lumis. Lumis barely moves, he just stares. Thorne rushes Lumis, dodges the clothesline and CHOPS him! Lumis shrugs it off but Thorne throws forearms. Lumis just whips Thorne and swings again. Thorne dodges but Lumis hits a Thesz Press! Lumis hammers away but lets Thorne up to uppercut! Thorne staggers around but Lumis is on him in the corner. Lumis pushes and punches Thorne but the ref backs him off. Lumis goes back but Thorne pulls him into buckles! Thorne kicks and clubs Lumis in the back, then digs Lumis’ face into the ropes! Thorne lets up to hop up and drag Lumis in. He leaps for the tornado but Lumis powers him off the DDT! Throne goes flying! Lumis DECKS Thorne back down! And then he scoops but Thorne rakes eyes! Thorne throws hands, forearms, and an uppercut! But Lumis clamps on with a choke grip!

Throne breaks free and dropkicks Lumis to a corner! Thorne runs in to hit a big calf kick! Lumis is down but Thorne keeps going to CANNONBALL! Thorne is fired up as he takes aim. He runs in but gets a SPINE BUSTER! Lumis looms over Thorne, drags him up by his hair, and then reels him in, for the SIDE EFFECT! ARM TRIANGLE! Thorne flails and kicks but the katagatami is TIGHT! Thorne fades and fades, he’s out! Lumis wins!

Winner: Dexter Lumis, by submission

The Worst just got the worst treatment of his life! Lumis cradles and comforts his fallen prey. Will Lumis continue to make victims of the NXT locker room?


NXT has a Tweet from Jordan Devlin.

“Been watching the #nxtINTERIMcruiserweight Championship tourney & I’ve gotta say, some great heart on display. Lads fighting for their professional lives. Who will be crowned the ultimate sham? Who’s gonna want the REAL Cruiserweight Champ to sign their replica title?” The Irish Ace does not mince words! Will no one in this tournament measure up to Devlin?


NXT shares footage from after last week’s episode.

Jake Atlas beat Drake Maverick in the first round of said tournament, but didn’t want him to feel so low. Atlas says he still believes in Maverick, and still thinks he’s great. When he looks into Maverick’s eyes, Atlas knows he feels the same. Maverick thanks Atlas for those words. But will those words of encouragement help Maverick get that critical first win?


Keith Lee speaks.

“Damian Priest. You took your best short, bruised my larynx.” Priest is right, Lee isn’t 100%. But Priest likes to say he will #LiveForever. That he likes to live in infamy. “So, too, will the beating that I give you.” Is the Limitless One going to make Priest regret ever targeting his title?


Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament Group A: Drake Maverick VS Tony Nese!

The former GM of 205 Live and the former NXT Cruiserweight Champion both lost in the opening round. One man is going to go 0-2 and be all but eliminated from the running. Can Maverick not only win to keep his title chances alive, but win to keep his WWE career alive? Or will the Premier Athlete walk all over that for his own ambitions?

The bell rings and Maverick ties up with Nese. Nese throws him down and flexes on him. Maverick doesn’t care about that, he goes after the leg, then the waistlock and headlock. He wrenches Nese but Nese ROCKS him with that left! Maverick is furious as he gets back up, but that jaw is stinging. Nese says Maverick has to do better than that. Nese then powers Maverick to the corner and fires off with fury! The ref backs him off, but Nese gets around him to stomp and hammer away! Maverick sputters and writhes in the corner as Nese backs off. Maverick refuses to let this stop him, and he gets up on the apron. Nese waits for him to get in the ring, then snapmares him for a Penalty Kick! Maverick screams in pain but he refuses to stop here. Nese mocks Maverick, “I thought you were fighting for your life here.”

Nese stalks Maverick to a corner then drags him up. Maverick throws body shots but Nese CLUBS him down. Nese scoops and slams Maverick hard! He toys with Maverick and continues to mock him. Nese taunts Maverick’s story, but Maverick fires more body shots! Nese throat chops and the ref reprimands him. He drags Maverick up for the running bulldog hotshot! Maverick is gasping while Nese vows this tournament is already his. The ref checks on Maverick’s neck while NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Nese grinds Maverick down with a chinlock. Maverick sits up but Nese wrangles him back down. Nese keeps taunting Maverick as he grinds Maverick down. Maverick fights his way up and gets to his feet. They go around, Nese snapmares and KICKS Maverick again! Maverick grits his teeth and Nese mocks his pain. “Are you gonna cry?” Maverick crawls and Nese says people love watching Maverick cry. Nese SLAPS Maverick away from the corner. Maverick sits up and seethes and Nese mocks his anger. Nese throws Maverick into buckles, but the rage is building! Maverick glares at Nese, and he throws off the armbands! Maverick fires off with fury! He hammers away in the corner but the ref backs him off. Maverick basement dropkicks! Nese powers Maverick to the top rope but Maverick boots back! Maverick leaps to missile dropkick!

Nese flounders to ropes but Maverick is on him with the SLICED- No! Nese slips out to ELBOW! Nese reels Maverick in, to German Suplex him into buckles! Maverick clutches his neck, Nese brings down the knee pad, and he digs his knee into Maverick. Nese runs side to side, but Maverick dodges! The Premier Knee only gets buckles! Maverick cravats and runs up the buckles, for the CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Maverick was so close and yet so far! But he won’t stop here, he heads up top! Maverick is ready to risk it all, and he leaps! The Macho Elbow MISSES! Is his arm broken!? Nese hops up top now, but Maverick uses the bad arm to trip Nese up! Maverick fights through the pain to climb up top. Maverick brings Nese in, SUPER BULLDOG!! Cover, Maverick wins!!

Winner: Drake Maverick, by pinfall (moves up to 1-1; Nese drops to 0-2)

Maverick’s chances still live! Albeit, it is an outside chance, but can he make it happen?

In-ring interview with Maverick.

A crucial first win that is so, so sweet! Maverick vowed to do it, and he did doubt himself, but he did it! Now it’s just him against Kushida! You heard of the Wolf of Wall Street? Call Maverick the Wolf of NXT! “I’m not frickin’ leaving yet!!” He loves this and lives this! He isn’t leaving until he is NXT Cruiserweight Champion! Devlin says it’s all a sham, but will Maverick make a believer out of him?


NXT announces three BIG matches!

First, the NXT Women’s Championship is officially on the line! Will Io Shirai dethrone the Queen in their first-ever encounter? Second, Gargano has accepted Dominik Dijakovic’s challenge! Will Johnny Wrestling #FeastHisEyes on a defeat? And last but far from least, THE NXT Championship will be defended! Will Adam Cole end the Experience once and for all in this #UndisputedDream match?


NXT North American Championship: Keith Lee VS Damian Priest!

The Archer of Infamy has accused the Limitless One of avoiding those he knows he cannot beat. That goes back to Priest’s first main event match being a win over Lee long before Lee had the title. Priest aims to put a limit on Keith, but will he hit the mark? Or will even he #BaskInHisGlory?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and this grudge match a long time coming finally begins!

Priest and Lee circle and Priest gives testing kicks. Lee shrugs them off and swings a back hand. Priest ducks but Lee reels him in. Priest elbows free and dodges Lee, but Lee rolls and crossbodies! Lee stalks Priest to a corner but Priest elbows back. Priest goes up and leaps, into Lee’s forearm! Priest flounders about but Lee is on him with a waistlock. Lee brings Priest away from ropes but Priest elbows back. Priest hesitates and Lee clotheslines him out of the ring! Lee pursues but Priest hops the railing! Lee grabs him and drags him back, but Priest sucker punches him. Lee ROCKS Priest right over the railing! The ref wants this to return to the ring but Lee has to pursue Priest. Lee military presses and TOSSES Priest back to the ring from the crowd area! Luckily there were no fans, they might have been in the way.

Lee stalks up behind Priest and pushes him into the ring. Priest gasps and gets back out, and manages to elbow Lee. He goes to bump Lee on steps, but Lee blocks! Lee glares as he throws body shots. Lee wants to powerbomb but Priest powers away. Priest is at the railing, and Lee runs in, only to get railing! Lee has crashed down and Priest grins as NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Priest has Lee in a chinlock. Lee endures and fights his way to his feet. Lee pries the hold apart but Priest knees him hard in the back. Priest clubs Lee to a corner, then runs in corner to corner. He hits the big back elbow, then drags Lee out for a suplex. Lee is too much for Priest and Lee knees low. Lee dead lifts Priest, but Priest slips out to hit a stiff neckbreaker! Cover, TWO! Priest rains down right hands and elbows to make Lee pay. Priest drags Lee back up and wants to try again.

Priest tries again, Lee ducks the attack and GRIZZLY MAGNUMS! Lee hands the baton to the ref, powerbomb lifts Priest, for the SPIRIT BOMB! But not once, but TWICE!! Cover, Lee wins!!

Winner: Keith Lee, by pinfall (still NXT North American Champion)

Priest was proven wrong! He could not keep Lee down, and now he is one of the defeated. With Lee still champion, will NXT forever #BaskInHisGlory?

My Thoughts:

Another great episode, but with a lot of things going as expected. No offense to Mia, but of course Charlotte was winning that match. It was pretty good, but now we get Charlotte VS Shirai and that is going to be killer. In fact, next week’s episode is going to be incredible with both the Women’s Championship and top title on the line. Gargano VS Dijakovic should be good, and we’re also getting Karrion Kross’s in-ring debut. Balor revealing his attacker is going to be a great twist for his story, and whichever way they go with it is going to be good. Lumis gets another good win, I wonder if it was him. The Newly-Bros show was so odd, and would’ve probably been just as awkward with fans in attendance. Imperium’s attack was a nice way to wrap that segment up, and deepens the NXT Tag Team Championship story. The NXT Tag Division has always risen to the occasion, so maybe a Triple Threat or bigger gives us something to really get excited about.

Both Cruiserweight matches were great. Swerve VS Fantasma was great, and Swerve now having the direct tiebreaker over Fantasma is going to be pivotal to determining Group B’s finalist. Fantasma’s story is also clearly with these mysterious luchadors, but I’m hoping they don’t stumble when it comes to revealing the motivations behind all this. And as I said last week, Maverick’s story in the vacuum of kayfabe is going perfectly. He spoils Nese’s chances and is on the verge of success. But I’m thinking Kushida has to crush Maverick’s dream in order for us to see Kushida VS Swerve in the finals, as I’ve predicted since 205 Live’s Cruiserweight 5v5. I would think the story still ends with Maverick getting a new contract, even if that flies in the face of the real releases going on right now. Devlin’s tweet was a great little bit, too. Can’t wait for the “undisputed NXT Cruiserweight Championship” match to happen.

Candice’s new Heel persona has a good showing against Catanzaro. It’s a shame they didn’t really try that hard with the “pint-sized pixie” nickname, because it would’ve given her new “pint-sized poison” nickname more sting. But clearly they’ve borrowed the fairy tale motif from Ciampa with that and the name of Candice’s new finisher. I feel like NXT is actually doing something WWE normally doesn’t: we’re going to be having feuds of all Heels. Whether it’s Charlotte or Shirai, I’m not sure either counts as a Face, even against Heel Candice. And I rather like that. And last but not least, Keith Lee VS Damian Priest was incredible! Another great match from Lee, because I don’t think it’s possible for him to have bad ones. It feels like Lee has cleared out contenders, but perhaps Killian Dain comes back around, as they haven’t had a match with each other just yet.

My Score: 9.1/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Match Ratings & Results: 3.23.2023

The Go Home to Sacrifice! PPV this week, Mania weekend special next week! Fun times for Impact!



It’s the Go Home to Sacrifice! I think there’s definitely more than a 33 1/3% chance that I’ll at least tolerate the episode. But with all of the fun pairings with Sacrifice participants we get the potential for a ton of story beats. We also might get a clearer picture of whatever the endgame is for The Design (doubtful though).

With all that, let’s hop into the show and kick off with how Kenny King and Eddie Edwards are exactly feeling about their Frankenstein problem.


  • The Design (Deaner, Kon, Angels w/Callihan) vs Time Machine (Alex Shelley, Kushida, Chris Sabin): Kushida wins via Hoverboard Lock – *** 1/4
  • Savannah Evans w/Gisele Shaw & Jai Vidal vs Deonna Purrazzo: Deonna wins via Crucifix Bomb – ** 1/4
  • Masha Slamovich & Bully Ray vs Tommy Dreamer & Mickie James: Bully wins via Piledriver – ** 1/4
  • Dirty Dango & Joe Hendry vs  Brian Myers & Moose: Myers wins via Roster Cut – ** 1/2



The Design (Deaner, Kon, Angels w/Callihan) vs Time Machine (Alex Shelley, Kushida, Chris Sabin)

Well Kushida does enjoy mixing it up with Heavyweights…and he starts against Kon. Kushida tries to chop down the tree, gets stifled, Shelley tags in to try and assist but they both meet the brick wall of Kon. Kon tags in Deaner and Shelley is getting worked over. Blind tag from Sabin, Deaner gets spun around and kicked in the face for a quick near fall.

All six mix it up a bit before Time Machine gets the best of it, they post Angels in the corner, Hesitation Dropkick from Sabin while Angels is retrained and we get a quick tag bringing Shelley back in to work over Angels left arm. I guess you can see they made him a…one winged angel – okay no more FF7 references. I feel dirty. Kushida lays in the grounded Bow and Arrow Liger Style, and Angels is just get rocked.

Eventually Angels manages to get away from Sabin and tag in Deaner, then The Design start quick tags and stomping away on Sabin in their corner. The Design tries to set up a tandem move, Sabin manages to escape and tag in Kushida. Hot tag with a few quick spots, Running Crossbody, Pele Kick, and then Shelley comes in. They go for some Time Splitters action but Angels interrupts it, so he receives the Time Splitters tandem offense of the PK to the Arm and Kon stunned on the apron eating a Back Handspring Kick, big Dive from Kushida puts an exclamation point on the Time Machine momentum.

Commercial break, we come back to Kushida and Shelley going for the Enzuigiri/Shotei combination, but Deaner moves and Shelley kicks Kushida. Angels gets tagged in and we see The Design put some stuff together. After a Spine Buster/Frog Splash combo, they set up a Double Doomsday and finally the MCMG portion of Time Machine come in for the save. Things start breaking down into signature spams, Angels looks to have the advantage until her stumbles just a little and the triple team starts.

They look for Outatime, but Deaner breaks it up, then Callihan slides in to just protect Deaner. He even stands there and asks the Guns to hit him. So Callihan gets rocked and Kushida flies in with the Hoverboard Lock for the win.

There was a vignette for The Coven, which checks that weird IMPACT spin since they love to play in the Shadow Realm. Not bad, just not work showing in the article.

JESUS H CHRIST – they are rebranding Raj Singh as Champagne Singh? I hope this is a short lived attempt at relevance, because he is talentless. Raj was the worst part of the Desi Hit Squad and somehow he’s stuck around the longest. I don’t get it…he’s cringe, can’t cut a promo and wrestles like trash. 

Savannah Evans w/Gisele Shaw & Jai Vidal vs Deonna Purrazzo

Deonna takes the offense right to Savannah, which is dumb; but Deonna does love to be the female Minoru Suzuki. By that I mean, just fighting the opponents fight for a little bit until the gameplan eventually kicks in. So it looks dumb, but let’s see if it continues to be dumb.

The match has been fairly basic, but not awful, hence why its hard for me to really highlight anything. Savannah hits some nice power moves, Jai and Gisele tend to jaw and be petty distractions but never physically get involved. Deonna tries to fire up with a few quick Chops, but Savannah puts the brakes to the that and hits a great Snap Suplex. Deonna absorbs some offense, tries to use a little bit of join manipulation and momentum to give herself a few openings. Savannah stops Deonna, goes for a Backbreaker, but Deonna counters.

Deonna runs the ropes, hits a few big Knee Lifts, Russian Leg Sweep, float over, Fujiwara…but Savannah grabs the ropes. Savannah stalls Deonna’s offense attempts, catches her with a beautiful Northern Lights Suplex Hold for 2. Full Nelson Slam attempt, Deonna drops down, rolls through, tries to use the ropes to her advantage, but Gisele and Jai finally makes their presence really felt. Deonna hits the ropes, Jai grabs her, Savannah swings, misses Deonna and wipes out Jai, Gisele eats a Pump Kick from Deonna. Deonna flies through the attempts slam, Crucifix Bomb from Deonna, and Deonna gets the pinfall.

Post match 3 on 1 beatdown begins! Deonna has no friends left, so she eats a Full Nelson Bomb and Denouement, and she’s left laying. 

Flashback Moment: Sacrifice 2010, Team 3D vs Beer Money vs MCMG, #1 Contender for the TNA Tag Team Championship Match

Masha Slamovich & Bully Ray vs Tommy Dreamer & Mickie James

Dreamer and Bully circle a little, Bully tries to take a swipe at Mickie and then goads her to tag in. Bully keeps talking crap but Masha demands to be tagged in. So Masha and Mickie start off, while Mickie is trying to keep her eyes peeled for Bully while getting the best of Masha early after a Thesz Press, Sole But, Flapjack, Kip Up. But Mickie allows herself to be distracted a little, Masha returns the Sole Butt and clocks Mickie to drop her and tag in Bully. Bully talks too long before the Elbow Drop, so Mickie rolls away and Dreamer tags in. So the babyfaces are getting the best of the early going until Bully grabs Mickie’s hair as she runs the ropes while the ref is distracted.

Bully cheap shots Dreamer, tries to grab the Kendo Stick and threaten Mickie but the referee stops him. Bully starts man handling Mickie, tags Masha back in and Masha is literally whipping her around by her hair. Same time Lariats give Mickie the chance to tag out, simultaneous tags on the guys and Dreamer is doing…as hot of a tag as he can. 10 Count Punches, Bites his head, Cutter, but Masha breaks the pin. Flip, Flop and Fly in stereo, Dreamer calls for a WAZZUP, Mickie does a Diving Polish Hammer to Bully’s balls. Then Dreamer shoves Mickie and tells her to get the tables.

Masha does one of the ugliest dives I’ve ever seen on Mickie, but its effective. Bully hits a Low Blow while the referee is messing with the table, Piledriver from Bully and the Bully wins it for the team.

Masha tells Bully to set up the table after the match. Bully is about to Powerbomb Mickie, but Jordynne Grace hits the ring with a Kendo Stick. Bully turns, Jordynne hits the ropes for a Spear but Bully moves and Jordynne cuts Mickie in half.  

Next week is going to be more of a hype show for Mutiverse United. There will be a few never broadcasted matches, but since its WrestleMania Weekend, that takes precedence. 

Dirty Dango & Joe Hendry vs  Brian Myers & Moose

Joe Hendry’s doing his usual promo after his music, but Dango also grabs a microphone which throws off Hendry a little. So when Hendry says “Say the only two words that matter” – Dango interjects with SUCK IT. Fun ways to tap dance around trademarks. 

Hendry and Myers start off which actually plays nicely into the story. Hendry invoked Myers’ rematch clause, so of course he wouldn’t be opposed to mixing it up before the PPV. Dango gets tagged  and tries to get Moose to dance. Moose’s leg shakes a little like he has to fight the urge to dance, and then charges at Dango. Little things like that reminds everyone that Moose is a likable performer, he’s just a heel right now, so he’s trying to ignore his fun side. Myers comes back in, Arm Trap Suplex, Tornado DDT where he kicks off of Moose who’s trying to interrupt. They wipe out Moose and Myers, Hendry puts his hands in the air for the wave, but Dango thinks it should be something else. Moves Hendry’s hands a little and then does a SUCK IT.

Off the commercial, Falcon Arrow from Dango, he tries to go to the top but Moose distracts Dango and Myers throws him off the top rope to the outside. Dango tries for the Cradle Counter Roll, but Myers blocks long enough to tag Moose. So Moose blindsides Dango before the 1 count even happens. Myers Knee Lift, holds onto Dango’s ankle and reaches to tag in Moose. So Dango is just getting totally singled out. Dango kicks Moose away, Moose tries for Go To Hell, but Dango keeps swinging, rocks Moose a little and then the Diving European Uppercut gives Dango the space he needs for the tag.

Simultaneous tags, Myers gets caught mid Crossbody, Sack of Shit from Hendry and then Joe Kips Up. Hendry tries a Trust Fall, Myers slips it, Enzuigiri, but then Hendry hits the Pop-Up Powerbomb for 2. Moose is in, Dango is in, Dango gets dumped out, Moose hits the Lights Out on Hendry. Roster Cut from Myers, 1-2-3.

Josh Alexander walks out to the ring after the Maclin/Swann shenanigans. Josh punctuates his promo with saying Maclin is afraid of failure, afraid of being a man without a purpose, afraid of being a Forgotten Son. Maclin’s music hits and he chuckles at the line and gives Josh a little kudos. 

Maclin is cutting a perfect heel promo since he’s validating everything Josh said, and even presents video evidence of how much scouting he’s doing to avoid failure. However, through his validation he’s also poking holes in Josh’s confidence. Josh tries to say it changes nothing and he’s a fighting champion and tries to challenge Maclin now…because now Josh is scared. Like Frankie said, Maclin is doing it “My Way”. So he says no to the challenge and that he wants to take it in Josh’s home town. 


Overall Score: 7.25/10

Now I usually get bored with promos to close a show, but they both played their parts perfectly. Josh with the strong babyface opening trying to discredit the opponent as just another victim of circumstance; but Maclin bringing the receipts like he just walked into H&R Block was beautiful. I’ve enjoyed a lot of Maclin’s run in IMPACT, but this is the cherry on the top. He NEEDS to win the title, he’s perfect since you could see in Josh’s face and body language his confidence is a little shaken.

I also appreciated a few of the little storytelling beats, like in Hendry’s match. Opening against Myers plays into the story, and then Moose hitting the Lights Out and then walking out of the ring just watching his handy work as Myers hits the Roster Cut for the win. Proves everything both men said leading up through this story. Deonna also being the best wrestler in the Knockouts division, but still not capable of beating a 3 on 1 with no friends played well towards something. It’s either going to culminate in Mickie and Deonna burying the hatchet frenemies style, or we’ll see Deonna having to evolve into a more straight forward babyface since she can’t play the heel or tweener with no friends.

The Twitter feed didn’t have the segment with The Death Dollz, but potentially writing off Taya by bringing Su Yung/Susie/Susan back works well since it gives JesSICKa a chance at an angle, Su could always side with The Coven, they can play in the paranormal nicely for a few more months. I just really hope they don’t return JesSICKa to Havok. Havok got stale and pathetic, whereas JesSICKa is entertaining both in and out of the ring.

But hey, tomorrow is Sacrifice, so watch your Steiner Math promos and strap in for the PPV!

The Outcasts may have knocked her down, but Skye got back up! And she shows Frost respect by upholding the Code of Honor. Will Skye be reaching for the stars in the ROH Women’s Division?


Rush & Dralistico w/ Jose the Assistant VS Rhett Titus & Tracy Williams!

All the tag teams in ROH want to #ReachForTheSky, including these two teams. Will La Faccion Ingobernable keep things tranquilo? Or will The Professional and the Hot Sauce be just a little too much for LFI?

The Code of Honor is NOT upheld, so the brawl is on! The bell rings, the forearms fly fast and furious, and the former ROH Tag champs get the edge! They run, but into DOUBLE SHOTGUNS!

Rush CLOBBERS Rhett! Fans fire up, Rush runs at Tracy, but Tracy SPEARS first!! All four men are down and the fans are thunderous for “R O H! R O H!” Rhett drags himself up, Rush roars, Rhett runs in! Rush OVERHEAD suplexes Rhett into buckles! Dralistico FLIES out onto Tracy and Jose! Rush stomps around, aims at Rhett, “When you mess with the bull!” BULL’S HORNS!!! Cover, LFI wins!

Winners: Rush & Dralistico, by pinfall

La Faccion Ingobernable is on a win streak, but Supercard of Honor is coming. Will LFI be the NEW ROH World Tag Team Champions?


Caprice Coleman sits with Eddie Kingston and Claudio Castagnoli.

Caprice is with The Mad King and the Swiss Superman to talk about the last few weeks. Eddie challenged Claudio for the ROH World Championship, and Claudio denied it, saying Eddie is a man without honor. Can Claudio explain that? Well, it should be self-explanatory. But Claudio does want to apologize. Eddie does have honor, in his own way. Eddie has pride, something that has gotten in his way many times, but Eddie has honor. Claudio admits to being wrong on that. But he will still stand by his statement that someone like Eddie should not be ROH World Champion.

How does Eddie respond to that? Caprice knows all the years he’s put into wrestling, and knows that ROH is a prestigious title. Can Eddie shoulder that responsibility? Eddie says Claudio’s opinion doesn’t matter. The only thing that matters is beating Claudio for that title. A title that mentors of Eddie’s have held. Low-Ki. Xavier. Homicide. That lineage belongs to Eddie, the underdog, the fighter. Claudio’s not a fighter, not an underdog, he knows that, because they know each other. They’ve lived with each other, met each other’s families. Claudio’s a coward for not doing business, so Eddie will force his hand. And Mox can’t stop this.

Interesting that Eddie would use the words “underdog” and “fighter.” Eddie always sees himself as an underdog, as a victim. When it comes to being a fighter, who is the one who always quits? Yeah, they used to live together, but also train together. Who ran off when things got hard? Claudio stayed, worked every single day that Eddie didn’t while throwing a pity party. Guess who put the work in? Guess who is champion right now because of that? Yeah, for now. Talk tough all you want, Eddie, you don’t walk the walk. Oh, word? Well, Eddie promised not to get up and punch Claudio, it’ll stay civil.

Claudio says Eddie is always a tough talker, always loud, that’s fine. Claudio isn’t afraid of Eddie, he’s afraid for Eddie. Eddie cannot beat Claudio, he cannot reach Claudio. Never did, never will. Then prove it! Prove it by giving Eddie his shot! Claudio says that if Eddie wants the shot, he’s got it! But Claudio will tell us all what’s gonna happen, think of this as a spoiler. Claudio will beat Eddie and outclass him. Then Eddie will blame everyone but himself for the loss. He’ll throw a tantrum then quit and run away to implode. Claudio tells Caprice that this man, Eddie, is the biggest waste of potential Claudio’s seen in his life!

Claudio saw Eddie when he was young, he saw the fire in his eyes, and that Eddie could’ve had it all. But then he threw himself a pity party and threw it all away. So mark Claudio’s words. After he retains his title at Supercard of Honor, this will happen again. Because Eddie can’t handle it! Caprice says it is official for March 31st in Los Angeles. Eddie VS Claudio, sign, sealed and delivered. But who will fight and who will run when all is said and done?

ROH World Television Championship: Samoa Joe VS Cheeseburger!

The King of Wrestling Television is going to get a helping of Sussex County Chicken at Supercard of Honor, but he’s having quite the appetizer! Will Joe tear into the all beef body of Cheeseburger? Or will this be the biggest upset in ROH history?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is headed for the Supercard of Honor!

The bell rings and Joe fires off knees and JABS on Burger! Joe says, “You remember, Mark! You remember what you’re getting in the ring with: ME!!” Fans sing, “Joe is gonna kill~ you!” but Burger still fires body shots and forearms! Burger runs, into a LARIAT! Joe asks if Mark remembers. “I’m gonna remind you.” Joe drags Burger up, hoists him up top, HEADBUTTS him, then tucks him in! MUSCLE BUSTER!!! Cover, Joe wins!!

Joe then snatches Bobby Cruise’s chair away! Referees rush out to reprimand Joe, but here comes BRISCOE! Mark is here with a chair of his own! Mark runs Joe off, but the clock is ticking! Will Mark finally fulfill his destiny by dethroning Joe? Or will the King of Wrestling TV only shine in Hollywood?

My Thoughts:

A really good ROH here, lots of development towards Supercard of Honor, and surprisingly, only one promo. That one promo was a very good promo as Eddie and Claudio get at each other and make an official ROH World Championship match for the PPV. There’s a lot of continuity to call upon from AEW here, can’t wait to see which way this one goes. Given how much the Blackpool Combat Club is still doing in AEW, this would be a pretty good opening for Kingston to win and let Claudio focus on AEW for a minute. Eddie can then have all sorts of great matches with ROH stars both old and new as ROH reestablishes itself.

Good women’s matches tonight, with Skye Blue getting a great win off Lady Frost and Billie Starkz with the surprising win over Alize. Athena VS Yuka Sakazaki is set for the PPV but I don’t see Athena losing. That means there must be plenty of strong Faces ready to challenge her. Skye is also still part of story in AEW, so maybe after we see The Outcasts VS Team AEW Homegrown play out, Skye devotes time to ROH and challenges for the title. Really good stuff out of Taven VS Darius, but of course The Kingdom helps Taven win that. Top Flight and The Kingdom should both be in that Reach for the Sky ladder match to both settle their feud and perhaps crown one team the champs.

Great interweaving of stories when it comes to the ROH Six Man titles. Fox, Blake & Metalik win against Trustbusters to shut them up and be clear next challengers, which is also made clear by The Embassy jumping them. Great showing from Deppen against Cage but I figured Cage would win. And then great retaliation from Fox, Blake & Metalik, which are going to need an official trio name if they’re gonna stick together. It really is three big hosses against three lighter high-flyers, this clash of styles is going to make for great stuff, but I can’t be sure the Faces dethrone the Embassy.

Really good stuff from tag teams tonight, such as LFI VS Rhett & Tracy and Aussie Open VS Daniels & Sydal. LFI and Aussie Open each winning makes sense, both factions are going strong in ROH but also other companies (AEW for LFI and NJPW for Aussie Open), these teams should also get in on the ladder match. Not to be mean to Aussie Open, but they’re already set for the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, they don’t necessarily need the ROH titles. LFI would be a strong choice for the next ROH Tag Team Champions, and should think about bringing Preston Vance into ROH so they can really start to dominate a promotion.

Really good match from Silas VS Shane, both guys have been great mainstays of ROH, and great win for Shane. Depending how the titles go, I would love if Shane went after the world title in the next phase. I mostly say that because the fans really like Shane, and it’d be a shame if Shane had to face another fan favorite. Though that said, fan favorite Cheeseburger got squashed in a title match main event just so Joe could prove a point to Mark Briscoe. Mark had a great win to open tonight, and he made the save to close the night, I kinda hope Mark finds a way to get that TV title to “fulfill destiny” on the same night ROH honors the Briscoe tag team legacy with that ladder match.

My Score: 8.7/10
