Andrew’s Genesis Results & Match Ratings 1.9.21

The first Genesis since 2018! This one feels more like Destination X since it’s all around the Super X Cup! Do we get another solid ImpactPlus App event?

Published

on

Genesis this year feels like Destination X with having the entire Super X Cup as the main attraction! We also get a generational battle between Jazz and Jordynne Grace. Main evented with the blood feud I Quit match with Willie Mack and Moose!

Now much like I tweeted, Blake Christian is who I’m looking most forward to in this X Cup. He’s been a beacon in the murky landscape of NJPW Strong, and he’s had decent tournament runs this past year. Ace Austin will most likely win the tournament since he needs something to re-establish himself after a few tough losses to end 2020; but I can still hope for Blake.

Also I’ve really been enjoying Moose during this whole TNA Champion reign and since his interaction with EC3. He’s found a great persona and even stepped up his in-ring ability. So this could be a surprisingly fun event.

Let’s find out!

Ratings:

  • Super X Cup: Ace Austin vs Suicide: Ace wins via The Fold – ** ¾
  • Super X Cup: KC Navarro vs Blake Christian: Blake wins via Elia – ***
  • Super X Cup: Cousin Jake vs Daivari: Jake wins via Blackhole Slam – **
  • Super X Cup: Crazzy Steve vs Trey Lamar: Steve wins via King Kill 33 – *** ¼
  • Super X Cup: Cousin Jake vs Ace Austin: Ace wins via Springboard Corkscrew Fold – *** ¾
  • Super X Cup: Blake Christian vs Crazzy Steve: Blake wins via 450 Draping Splash – *** ½
  • Jordynne Grace vs Jazz: Jordynne wins via Reverse Cradle – *** ½
  • Super X Cup Finals: Ace Austin vs Blake Christian: Ace wins via Flash Fold – ****
  • I Quit Match: Willie Mack vs Moose: Willie Mack wins – **** ½

 

Results:

Super X Cup: Ace Austin vs Suicide

Part of the entertainment is that each X Cup participant get a promo before the match. But for Suicide it was a combination of D’Amore, Sabin and Shelley. So it was nice for some inside baseball, like Sabin saying he’s pretty sure it was Christopher Daniels and still might be!

As for the match, it starts off with Ace not realizing who he was facing. He tried to do the paper cut, but Suicide wears gloves so it didn’t do a damn thing. The action was back and forth with a lot of Fulton making his presence known but not physically getting involved, just being a constant distraction.

Hard to really say more than this was just decent back and forth, some nice spots, but Ace gonna be a heel and win thanks to a distraction from Fulton and then The Fold. So to no one’s surprise, Ace wins the first round.

Super X Cup: KC Navarro vs Blake Christian

The promos in the beginning really helped show Blake as the typical humble white meat babyface, and Navarro as the brash mouthy arrogant one. No one is really a heel, but Navarro came in with a Pringles can on his shoulder.

Early on we see Navarro trying to prove to Blake that he’s just as good, if not better than him with mirroring certain moves. Then we get some solid Junior style action with Blake doing a lot of standing acrobatics from Shooting Stars to Planchas, and Navarro was looking for openings. Blake’s style is very calculated Junior risks, and I love how he throws the hesitation Dropkick to a seated opponent. Navarro did well enough, but he was always punching a little above his weight.

Super X Cup: Cousin Jake vs Daivari

This was a match that Jake needed since Cody got some character progression and he got left behind.  The issue comes from the fact that this was a slower more classic style of match; which didn’t really work super well with the fact the first two were faster paced in the same tournament.

Slower work where Daivari took advantage of positioning and Jake’s over eagerness at times, but he started working on the legs too late. Jake had enough power to hit the Blackhole Slam and pick up the win.

Super X Cup: Crazzy Steve vs Trey Lamar

Trey did really good comedy work in this match. Crazzy Steve’s antics kept him rattled, the stuffed monkey had him freaked and Steve used that to his advantage. So early on there wasn’t much wrestling, but good entertainment.

Trey really showed up in this match. Steve had a few bigger moves than usual, like the Avalanche Russian Leg Sweep and a grounded Cobra Twist, but Trey was the star in defeat here. He looked great, his facials were solid (except for a weird tongue flick he did while having Steve in a headlock). But either way, this kid could be something special.

Super X Cup: Cousin Jake vs Ace Austin

Finally we get a great meshing of styles, with a little bit of a hint towards a possible future encounter with Madman Fulton and Cousin Jake. Watching Jake’s power and Ace’s ingenuity was fantastic. Buckle Bombs, catching Ace out of midair, big Slams and Michinoku Drivers, but the fact that Ace won with a variation on The Fold was really great from him.

This is just a really well wrestled match, Fulton did a great job playing bodyguard and not being as obnoxious in the wrong spots as the first match. Great stuff.

Super X Cup: Blake Christian vs Crazzy Steve

Steve utilized a different part of his crazy kit here by interacting more with his monkey than his opponent. Lots of conversations and even a friendly hug between Steve and Blake.

Blake seems slightly confused but it doesn’t really throw him too far off. Things start slow until Blake accidentally kicks the monkey out of the ring. Then Steve goes a little crazy…err…crazier? Steve did a great job in helping to display Blake’s kit, a nice Split Legged Moonsault and the 450 he used as the finish. Blake looks like a solid challenge for Ace, but you gotta wonder if they’re gonna continue breaking down Ace or if this was manufactured to get him some momentum.

Jordynne Grace vs Jazz

Things start off respectful, but then both women get to slugging it out. Some powerful charges to knock one another down, haymakers and we get a nice women’s Hoss fight. Jordynne has an early advantage, but Jazz trips her up on the apron, then starts laying forearms across her face and just dominates for a few minutes.

Jordynne manages to absorb a Butterfly Suplex and stop the follow up move, sweep the leg and now we get some high impact attacks from Jordynne.  Spinebuster, Vader Bomb, an Aja Kong style backfist, and really great power couldn’t quite finish off Jazz. Jazz drops Jordynne on her face (on purpose) and it’s really close in the waning moments of the match. Jazz runs Jordynne into the ropes, O’Connor Roll, Jordynne rolls through and picks up barely a 3 count! Hard hitting, and pretty fun honestly.

Super X Cup Finals: Ace Austin vs Blake Christian

Blake comes out holding his ribs, reminiscent of the Lion’s Break Tournament, so even though I would like Blake to win; it’s leading more to an Ace win.

Surprisingly, this is a hell of a match. Ace was on the receiving end of a ton of offense, even when there was a dodge, it was close and cool. Big high flying attempts like Corkscrew Sentons, 450 Splashes, Blake went for Elia again and missed. There was a really solid locomotion cradle spot, which has a small hitch but not enough to look sloppy.

At the end we see Ace go for the card, but Blake grabs the hand and crumples it between. They go back and forth trying to push one another off with their legs, in that Lucha rolling arm lock spot. But as Ace pushes back, Blake stands, and before Blake can do anything; Ace follows the momentum, twists and hits The Fold for a win out of nowhere.

This was a tremendously great match, showed a lot for Blake in the loss and validates some of Ace’s ego returning.

I Quit Match: Willie Mack vs Moose

This had all the tones and feelings of the grudge match that it was. Willie and Moose went hard early, kept trying to intimidate one another and get in each other’s heads to get a quick quit. But this was not going to be over quickly and it was paced well, and the moves were meticulous, and the way they went from calling the referee in early to pushing him out of the way; just trying to inflict more damage was great.

Moose hit an Avalanche Go To Hell through a table, but Willie wasn’t going to die. Willie got some momentum a bit later, told Moose he’d have to kill him and that was a bit of foreshadowing. Moose was covering the TNA title belt and just chucked it at Willie’s head to give himself some space. Moose did make a reference to his EC3 match when he flipped off Willie right before a chairshot, but the point was the ending. Moose takes control, wraps the chair around Willie’s neck and goes to kill him, chair into chair style.  Rich Swann runs out and screams “What do you want”, Moose stares at him blankly and Rich says he’ll give him a title shot if that’s what he really wants, just stop the madness. Moose puts the chair down, and says “Thank You, I Quit”.

 

Overall Score: 8/10

This card did a great job at slowly building up. First round matches got us to where we needed to be, and they were mostly serviceable. Jake looks to still be reeling, which makes for a solid story of him finding his stride and figuring it out through the year. Blake Christian is a damn star, even though he was runner up, he stood out the most. Ace gets back on track, but we need more Blake in Impact Wrestling.

Jazz definitely brought it tonight as well. The finish was close enough to still leave a small question, but she threw the stiff shots and made that match a hell of a fight. Moose however, proved why he was the main event and also why he’s one of the most improved wrestlers of the last year or so. Moose was never bad, but always lacked something and needed others to bring him to a good match. We got a grudge match, fantastic violence and the fact that Moose had a very specific goal, so once he got what he wanted, the match no longer mattered and he ended it on his terms. Just complete genius.

Surprisingly great ImpactPlus event from Impact Wrestling. Now we get to see if Hard to Kill lives up to Genesis!

Winner: Axiom, by pinfall (advances to NXT Deadline)

Professor Chase fought so hard, but in the end, the Undeniable Truth is headed for NXT Deadline! Will Axiom be undeniable and become the first ever Mr. Iron Survivor?

 

Cora Jade speaks.

“My track record has proven I am willing to do whatever it takes to become the number one woman in NXT. I ended friendships, targeted the meek, preyed on the weak, cheated when the opportunity presented itself. So just imagine what I’m willing to do to win at Deadline and have my name go down in history as the very first female Iron Survivor. There are no depths that I will not sink to. And if you thought I embarrassed Wendy Choo, just wait until I embarrass the other four women in this match and walk out of Deadline as the #1 contender. Because this is my generation. The Generation of Jade.”

 

The Diamond Mine meets with the trainer.

Julius Creed’s knee is good to go, he is cleared to compete. He’s ready, but Ivy Nile wants the ribs to be checked. Julius says they’re fine, they don’t need checking. The trainer says Julius never mentioned the ribs, but Julius says that’s because they’re fine. But Ivy insists they’re not. Brutus asks what Ivy is up to, and she says she’s “protecting her brothers.” The trainer checks and finds significant swelling. The trainer can’t let Julius compete like this. They’ll get some imaging and see what’s what. Julius frowns at Ivy, and Brutus asks, “What the hell?” Ivy insists she’s protecting them, but is it from Indus Sher? Or from themselves?

 

Bron Breakker returns to his boat.

The NXT Champion is about to set sail for another fishing expedition, but Apollo Crews walks over. “What’s up, champ? Got room for one more?” Bron asks if Apollo’s serious. Apollo says Deadline’s not until Saturday, so this might be their last time to go out as just two guys enjoying the water. Well, alright, but Apollo’s gotta untie the line. Sure thing. Apollo hops aboard and they head out. Apollo really likes the boat. Cuts through the water with precision, great acceleration with the dual engines, it’s wonderful. Bron says, “Kinda like taking my Spear, huh?” Apollo sees what Bron did there.

Bron gets to his favorite spot and they set up. Apollo says he needs a little help, he’s never actually been fishing. Bron gives him pointers about his fingers and the spool. Then just reel back and let it go. Nice first cast for Apollo! A natural in the ring, a natural on the rod, let’s see what we catch. Bron does respect the standing moonsault. Apollo just decided to do it one day cuz he’s always had the hops. But he sees Bron doing one, too. Bron saw Apollo do it, gave it a try, fell on his face, but that’s kinda the goal. Any other moves Bron is looking to steal? Just a few. Then Apollo will have to learn to counter his own stuff.

And since it’s just Apollo, Bron and the fish, if there are even fish… Does this really take the pressure off? Or just an excuse to be alone? Bron says it’s very peaceful out here. As soon as you hold the title, the pressure comes with it, including fighting the best of the best. Gunther, Gargano, Ciampa, Ziggler, just to name a few, is quite the list. Bron says every match is must-win. Make too many mistakes, you don’t just lose a match, you lose everything you’ve worked for. Apollo has to say, he has an idea. If Bron is tired of the grind, he can just hand the title over on Saturday and take that much needed break.

Bron will respectfully decline. Apollo gets a bite and he reels it in. They’re both excited to see Apollo with a big fish on the hook. And then, they let him go. Congratulations are in order for that, and both men are looking forward to Saturday. It will be a banger, but the game plans are pretty simple. Bron will use his power, speed and intensity, and Apollo looks to challenge each one of those. “May the best man win.” Bron didn’t catch any fish today, Apollo says it just wasn’t his day. And neither will Saturday. Will these respectful rivals look to catch the other slacking at Deadline?

 

Bryson Montana VS Javier Bernal!

Bryson is about as big as Montana, but- OH NO! SANGA splashes him! And then choke grips, for a SHOKE SLAM! Veer joins Sanga in the ring and they loom over Bryson. Here comes Big Body Javi, and he realizes what just happened. Javi fakes a big bad pulled hamstring and hobbles away. Veer gets a mic to call out the Creed Brothers! “We said we will not face you unless you are 100%. You have heart, but clearly you are not 100%.” Sanga says destroying the Creeds before they’re healed does NOT interest them. So respectfully, the challenge is declined. They will way until the Creeds are ready. Just don’t keep them waiting too long.

Indus Sher has spoken, but will they be gentlemen about waiting? Wait! The Creeds aren’t waiting, they’re storming out to the ring! But referees and Ivy Nile keep them both back because Julius is far from physically ready! Fans want to “Let Them Fight!” but will that have to be until after Deadline?

 

Chase U regroups backstage.

Duke sits with Chase and says the silver lining is that Chase didn’t get pinned in the match. But then Thea excitedly rushes in to say that she has a match tonight! Fantastic! Against who? Isla Dawn! Oh, no way. Yes way! No, sorry, Duke meant like, no way should Thea do it! Thea knows Isla is super scary, but Thea is super ready! Duke wants Chase to back him up on this, but Chase says Thea can do it. Thea is fired up and Duke wants her and Chase to reconsider. But Chase says she CAN do it! Thea says she’ll be fine! Thanks, Mr. Chase! Thea hurries off to get ready but Duke stays with Chase.

Duke knows Chase didn’t get into the Iron Survivor Challenge, but he has to- DAMN IT, DUKE! Chase has made his decision! Is Duke right that Chase isn’t the right headspace? Or will Thea prove Chase is right that she can fight the Wicked Witch of NXT?

 

Sol Ruca catches something on her TikTok.

She and Amari Miller are doing a dance backstage when Edris Enofe & Malik Blade encounter Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen, then start arguing! Hank Walker and others cool things down, Briggs & Jensen say they were just being good friends but it seems Edris & Malik don’t wanna hear about it. This moment sparked a match for tonight, will the good ol’ boys get through to their friends?

 

Tony D’Angelo w/ Channing Lorenzo VS Xyon Quinn!

The Don is back in action! Will he have any ring rust after being out for ten weeks? Or will Tony D be the one to “run it straight” against the self-proclaimed It Factor?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Tony headlocks, fans rally but Xyon powers out. Things speed up, Tony ducks ‘n’ dodges and he runs Xyon over! Fans fire up with Tony, but Xyon RAMS Tony into the corner! Xyon RAMS and RAMS again, then whips corner to corner. Tony rebounds into a fireman’s carry, but he slips off to LARIAT! Fans fire up again and Tony drags Xyon up. Tony throws hockey body shots, then a HALF HATCH suplex! Fans fire up as Tony throws more hands on Xyon. Xyon ends up in a corner, Tony storms in but into an elbow. Xyon throws hands now, then a HEADBUTT!

Xyon whips Tony to ropes, Tony holds ropes then elbows Xyon back! But Xyon fireman’s carries to SAMOAN DROP! Xyon kip sup while Tony bails out. Xyon hurries to the apron but Tony JABS Xyon! Tony gets in to SPINEBUSTER! Fans fire up and Stacks says to finish this! Tony reels Xyon in, back suplex to a SIDE SLAM! Cover, Tony wins!

Winner: Tony D’Angelo, by pinfall

“Look who’s back, baby~!” And Stacks, you see any rust? No rust, Don, you’re still good. Tony says he may not be the X-Factor or whatever, but he’s like a shiny new hubcap. This is why he is the Don of NXT! So during his physical therapy, Tony gained some new revenue, some new connections, right? But for him and Stacks, it always came down to Wes Lee and that North American Championship. Tony was gonna win, Wes took a cheap shot, and Wes has been living on that- But wait! Here comes Wes Lee!

“Welcome back, Tony D’Angelo! The Don has returned!” Wes goes to the ring and Tony appreciates him “paying tribute.” Uh, not quite. See, everyone knows Tony’s been eyeballing Wes and his title. Wes is here face to face saying he has his eye on Tony just as much. Not to mention someone else- Stacks interrupts and says Wes needs to smarten up right now. Wes needs to have his eyes on Tony, because there is nobody bigger than- Hey, Don. Have your man switch to decaf so he can chill. Wes says after he beat Carmelo, Dijak came out to drop Wes. As far as Wes sees it, he has unfinished business there. So if Tony wants after the title, wait until Wes finishes with Dijak.

Tony says, “Oh, Mr. High and Mighty! I’m pretty insulted that you think I’d wait in any line.” Tony doesn’t care about Dijak. Dijak plays by a different set of rules, good for him. Who cares. That business will have to wait. But then Dijak is on the tron! He tells Tony D that yes, Dijak plays by a different set of rules. Dijak tells it like it is. And while Tony is a scumbag from the streets, as long as he stays out of Dijak’s way, he won’t have to clean things up. As for Wes, Dijak thought Wes would crawl into a hole and never come back out. So his advice to Wes is to keep his name out of your mouth. Dijak has a very special way of dealing with repeat offenders.

“Neither one of you can or will do anything to stop me from decimating NXT.” Stacks wants Wes to listen to Dijak. The way Stacks sees it, there’s nowhere to run! Stacks shoves Wes but Wes CLOBBERS Stacks! Wes then bails out before Tony can get at him. Hard Justice has spoken, but Tony and Wes are still fired up. Who will come out of all this on top with the North American Championship?

 

NXT shares a confrontation from last week.

It was just after the Iron Survivor Challengers were named that the rest of the locker room voiced their opinions. Hank Walker saw Charlie Dempsey walk in and wanted to talk about how Dempsey looks down on him for being a security guard turned superstar. Hank knows Dempsey has lived the business, but Hank didn’t get in the ring when he was 4. Hank got in when he was 24. And Hank wishes he could follow in his father’s footsteps. Hank’s dad was a factory worker. But none of that matters here. Hank just wants the same respect as everyone else. If he has to earn that, then just say the word and they can make it happen.

So Hank wants to face Dempsey? Dempsey promises to show Hank he doesn’t belong. Dempsey headed out, but will he keep that promise? Or will Big Hank shock the world?

 

SCRYPTS speaks.

“What it means to be a star, the words you use ought to define who you truly are. That light comes so quick but then it’s gone. The language you write is more important than the canvas it’s written on. Mean what you say because there is weight in your words. I grew up in a place where everyone judged you on what they saw, and not what they heard. NXT is now my new home. Same culture just a different address, but a convenient one at that. There’s only a chosen few that get an unwanted pass. But how much longer can I truly last? I must follow those who broke through. But too much of the same thing makes the old things feel new.

“So on this journey, I must target the chosen ones, for all the rest will fall in the dark and not the light. This is why I write. Sincerely, SCRYPTS.”

 

Hank Walker VS Charlie Dempsey!

NXT returns as Dempsey makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two rush each other. They tie up, are in a deadlock, but Hank puts Dempsey in a corner. The ref counts, Hank lets off, but Dempsey knee slow. Dempsey ROCKS and SDLAPOS Hank, and that just pisses Hank off! Hank RAMS into Dempsey, and again, and again! Then he runs Dempsey corner to corner! Hank TOSSES Dempsey, then fires up! Fans fire up with Hank but Dempsey headbutts low! Dempsey headlocks, but Hank endures. Hank pries the hold open, but Dempsey knee slow and throat chops! Hank shoves Dempsey back but Dempsey swats the lariat!

Dempsey gets a KIMURA on the arm! Hank stays standing, he throws body shots, and he scoop SLAMS Dempsey down! Fans fire up as Dempsey staggers. Hank storms up to whip Dempsey but Dempsey blocks to ROCK and drop toehold Hank into buckles! Dempsey CLOBBERS Hank, UPPERCUTS, then GUT WRENCH SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Dempsey has the KIMURA back! Fans rally as Hank endures and moves around. But wait, DREW GULAK walks out? The fans fire up for seeing the Philly Stretcher here. Hank fights up, Dempsey ROCKS him back with close forearms! Dempsey CLUBS Hank on the back and cranks that Kimura!

Hank still endures, he refuses to fall. Hank fights up but that arm is being pulled way back! Hank throws body shots, then ROCKS Dempsey and whips. Dempsey ducks but Hank hits a THESZ PRESS! Hank fires off fast hands, then he runs in to SPLASH in the corner! Whip and SPLASH the other way! Hank scoops Dempsey for a SLAM! Dempsey staggers up, Hank ROCKS him with a forearm! Hank runs, but Dempsey blocks boot into a LEG WHIP! Dempsey has the leg but Hank kicks away with the other! Dempsey loses his grip but he stomps Hank down! Dempsey PUSHES the knee! Hank grabs hair but Dempsey turns Hank over!

Hank has the leg, he CLUBS Hank, and then he bends Hank in a BOW ‘N’ ARROW!! Hank taps, Dempsey wins!!

Winner: Charlie Dempsey, by submission

The British technician defeats Hank, but the American grappler Gulak doesn’t seem impressed. Will Dempsey have to prove to Gulak that he belongs?

 

Zoey Stark speaks.

“Timing is everything in this business, and there’s no better time for this Iron Survivor Challenge. Because this is MY type of match. Last week, I was unanimously voted in by the Hall of Famers. And whether I start it or come in at the end of it, it doesn’t make a bit of difference. Because the four other women, they can’t touch me. On Saturday, I walk into Deadline with no extra baggage, no dead weight. I don’t have to worry about being a mentor or a big sister. This Saturday is all about me. 25 minutes separates me from history.”

 

Backstage interview with Grayson Waller.

McKenzie Mitchell says he and the other four superstars in the Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge will be in the ring as he hosts another episode of The Grayson Waller Effect. What can we expect to see? Oh, McKenzie missed Waller, huh? But tonight has so much energy! We’re just four days away from the WWE’s last premium event of the year, and we’re going out in style with Deadline! But McKenzie doesn’t have to soften Waller up. We all know she hates his show. It proves that Waller can do what she does so much better and she can’t do his job because no one on this roster can do what he does! And that is why he’s the odds on favorite to be the inaugural Mr. Iron Survivor!

But tonight, in the main event, Waller wants to see where everyone is. He wants to size them up, get an edge, not that it’ll be that hard, because they’re already nervous. They all will feel the Grayson Waller Effect. Waller heads out, will he be the one suffering from nerves being in there with all four opponents at once?

 

Pretty Deadly is in the ring!

And while Kit Wilson is Santa Claus, Elton Prince is an elf. They have a Christmas tree, stockings, presents, lights, and a big throne. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, December is here! It’s time for a REAL Christmas story with your NXT Tag Team Champions! They get comfy and have a story book. Elton sits on Santa’s lap and opens up the book. “Now remember, we wrote this ourselves.” “We absolutely did!”

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the house, not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse. “The Kitster and Ellie” were tucked in and ready for bed, but those devilish handsome boys decided to stay up instead. Their bulging sacks overflowed with gifts for their fans. But they couldn’t bear to handle anything touched by the NXT Universe’s filthy little hands. The holiday season should be a time to give thanks. So please, to your knees if you please, and praise your glorious NXT Tag Team Champs. Back to the yuletide eve and those tasty British snacks, who won their gold by putting everyone on their backs.

They were waiting desperately and impatiently for the greatest gift of all. It’s not that you people are saying soccer instead of FOOTBALL!! Elton, please. It’s Christmas. Right, sorry. That’s an issue for another day. Pretty Deadly wanted something they craved for the longest of times, and it’s not just being on TV reading a story that rhymes. For the longest time, it was something that no one in NXT has been able to bring, and that’s a team that can match them blow for blow in the ring. Pretty Deadly begged and pleaded with Santa Claus, put it all in a letter. Good Ol’ Nick isn’t stupid, he knows no one is better!

So this Christmas, they are the greatest, tastiest gifts for you all, as the cold chill of Winter creeps in from the Fall. The Tag Team Champions who will never, ever, ever, ever, ever lose, who have beaten everyone without receiving even the slightest bruise. So Santa can’t save you, there’s no Christmas cheer. 2023 will be the same as 2022, a PRETTY DEADLY YEAR! They say Merry Christmas to each other and hug it out. But then THE NEW DAY is here?! The fans lose their minds, as do Elton & Kit! Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods have the mics as fans chant “NEW! DAY ROCKS!”

Kofi says firstly, what an amazing story! Was that not great? Woods says, “Boys, boys, boys. The story that we want to hear talks about who?” WHO WHO WHO will Pretty Deadly defend the belts against at Deadline? Because they said they beat everybody, right? Right? They did say that! They beat everyone except YA BOIS, the NEW~ DAY~! Woods & Kofi get in the ring and yes, boy, they should put the titles on the line this Saturday so that the New Day can become your NEW~! W! W! E! N! X! T! WORLD! TAG! TEAM! CHAMPION~! But Pretty Deadly rushes in, only for the New Day to clobber them!

Fans fire up as as the New Day takes the fight to the champs, then trade to back elbow the others! Elton gets sent into the tree! And Kit gets sent into a GIFT BOX! Then the New Day tosses Pretty Deadly, and grab some really big boxes! MERRY CHRISTMA, they get bopped! Woods counts it out: one! Two! Three! DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Fans fire up as the New Day pick up the NXT Tag Team titles! Will Kofi & Woods add to their already impressive accolades by becoming Tag Team Triple Crown Winners?

 

Isla Dawn speaks.

“Oh, my very first match in NXT. Oh, Alba Fyre. I hope you’re watching.” Isla blows out the candles and laughs in the dark. Will she extinguish Thea Hail’s light before dealing with the Celtic Fire Keeper?

 

Backstage interview with Javier Bernal.

McKenzie spooks him as she walks over. He says she can’t be doing that. Sorry, not sorry. But why was he looking around over his shoulder? Scared Indus Sher will come after him? Why would he be worried about them? And no, he wasn’t looking over his shoulder. Uh, yes he was. McKenzie, that is insensitive. He has a twitch. And Big Body Javi isn’t afraid of anything. But he was scared two seconds ago. Whatever, nevermind. Yeah, that’s what Indus Sher said looking at Javi! They saw him and were like, “Nevermind.” They don’t want none of him! That’s not how it looked to her. Well her opinion doesn’t count cuz she is clearly Anti-Javi. Javi needs someone more unbiased.

Then in that case… Oh, Ikemen Jiro! What’s up? McKenzie asks Jiro his opinion of Javier Bernal. Jiro looks confused as to who that is. Javi says that’s not a fair question. Javi asks Jiro about Big Body Javi. Hmm… More like Big Body Chicken. Exactly! Chicken!? Javi says McKenzie put Jiro up to that! Javi storms off, will he redeem his reputation?

 

Thea Hail w/ Chase U VS Isla Dawn!

Chase U’s most… enthusiastic student is more than fired up to face her opponent tonight. But considering the wicked ways of the Unholy Enchantress, will Thea wish she’d skipped school tonight?

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (12/6/22)

Atlantic City gets Dark!

Published

Anyone feeling luck in the Dark?

With AEW Dynamite tomorrow and ROH Final Battle this weekend, Dark brings out Dalton Castle & The Boys! Will the ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions find worthy opponents in time for December 10th?

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Brian Cage VS Leon Ruffin; wins.
  • Athena VS B3CCA; wins.
  • Six Man Tag: Dalton Castle & The Boys VS Justin Corino, Jaden Valo & Defarge; win.
  • Jay Lethal & Satnam Singh w/ Sonjay Dutt VS The Brick City Boyz; win.
  • Leva Bates VS Abadon; wins.
  • Trent Beretta w/ Chuck Taylor VS Anthony Henry w/ JD Drake; wins.

QUICK NOTES

A shorter card here, and from way back a month ago when AEW was in Atlantic City ahead of Full Gear. Dalton Castle & The Boys are in action on this episode because per last night’s Elevation, they more or less called out The Embassy. Castle & The Boys VS Cage & The Gates of Agony probably ends up a Final Battle preshow match, and I feel like that would/should be the time The Embassy takes those titles. Castle & The Boys have been great ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions, but The Embassy is going to look like a joke if they can’t get a pin off one of the Boys.
