GHC Junior HeavyweightGHC Junior TagGHC National and GHC Heavyweight Tag signings 

NOAH held the remaining GHC match signings in Tokyo on the 25th May 2021. However, it was only in the case of Takashi Sugiura and Kazushi Sakuraba, where both champion and challenger turned up. Yuya Susumu was absent as he is a freelancer and had another engagement, STINGER didn’t want to and so didn’t, although they did sign the contract beforehand and no one expected them to attend anyway, THE AGGRESSION didn’t even give an excuse and Mohammed Yone was “busy on a funky errand” according to Shuhei Taniguchi.

Atsushi Kotoge said he would inflict great damage on Yuya Susumu, even if it meant sacrificing himself at times, and acknowledged he would have to be wary of Susumu’s crossface which he knew he could do at any time and place.

Daisuke Harada and Hajime Ohara (Harada had knocked Yoshinari Ogawa out in the final pre-match in Niigata), have vowed to take the GHC Junior Tag from their hated opponents. Harada because this is an accumulation of what Ogawa has put him through these past few years, and for Ohara, who has no quarrel in particular with Ogawa aside from the belts, swore revenge on HAYATA for always standing in his way especially after taking the junior heavyweight from him in 2018. However, Ohara says that the tag with Harada changes nothing of their rivalry as singles competitors, and he still wants to defeat him in that. Ohara also spoke of the long absent SUWA, saying that SUWA always said “I want to repay Misawa”, and on SUWA’S behalf he hopes to do this at the Misawa Memorial when he goes to the ring with that in mind.

Ironically, it is not the ever chaotic NOAH juniors who cause trouble at press conferences, that sphere belongs to the heavyweights (usually Kenoh), and while there was no violence between them today, there was antics. Shuhei Taniguchi turned up in the funky shades and big yellow boa, and cut a rambling promo, which included talking about the martial problems he is having with his wife over being “funky”.

In true Sugiura Army style, Takashi Sugiura and Kazushi Sakuraba had a drinking contest. However, Sugi bought nonalcoholic beer, which Sakuraba didn’t like and refused to chug. Sakuraba said that perhaps if it was a Highball or Shochu he would have done, but there was too much there and he didn’t like the froth.  Sugi couldn’t quite understand why Sakuraba said he wouldn’t chug it, especially given his image in PRIDE and induction into UWF. Friendliness and jokes aside about Sakuraba chugging Shochu or Highball after the match, or this being Sugi’s win celebration, or Sakuraba saying it was his, neither had any illusion that come to the match on the 31st they would stop being friends and become rivals.

Chasing Tanaka, Yoshiki Inamura to participate in ZERO1’s Fire Festival

Yoshiki Inamura will participate in A block of the ZERO1 Fire Festival 2021 alongside Hartley Jackson, Masato Tanaka, Fuminori Abe, Tsugutaka Sato and Shinjiro Otani. Inamura stated his reasons are to “chase Masato Tanaka”, which is why he came to the Festival as he not only wants a match with him but he is also in search of strength.

ZERO1 have announced the schedule as being: 11th July, 17th July, 21st July, 22nd July and 24th July. The finals will be held on the 1st August. NOAH have events on both the 11th and the 22nd, so depending on how Inamura does he may miss a couple of events.

PLAY BY PLAY

NXT opens with a lot of new stars in the ring.

Carmelo Hayes, Trick Williams, Odyssey Jones, Bron Breakker, Joe Gacy, Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen are waiting as the  NEW NXT Champion walks out! Tommaso Ciampa, Goldie in his arms, fires up the CWC and he joins these new guns in the ring. Fans are fired up for the champ and he says, “908 days, man, and on day 908, I reclaimed my spot at the top of the mountain and took back the title that I never lost in the first place! It has been a long, long journey,” and from neck surgery to tonight, “it was worth every damn second!” This moment here makes it worth it. Ciampa gets to say to each and every man in the ring, fan in the arena and fan at home that once again, Ciampa is YOUR NXT Champion!

Fans chant “Daddy’s Home!” but Ciampa hushes everyone. “I missed you, too.” Ciampa loves what’s going on with NXT 2.0! The energy is contagious, there are fresh faces, and fans like this, too. These young men and women are busting their asses day in and day out, ready to show the world just how damn good they are! Ciampa looks at Melo, “when Melo shoots, he don’t miss.” Odyssey Jones, Bron Breakker, the list goes on and on. Then there’s Ciampa, and we already know he is, was and always will be Mr. NXT! Now they can all give themselves a fresh coat of paint and put on “2.0” but one thing that hasn’t changed is the passion.

Ciampa looks around, Alicia is NXT, Barrett is NXT, and everyone in the ring is NXT! And of course, there’s the fans. They are the heartbeat and the soul of this place! The fans are the reason Ciampa gets to do what it is he does. Ciampa is so damn happy to have fans back and holding the title to represent this brand! With Ciampa holding the title, NXT 2.0 just became THE A-SHOW! So do Ciampa a solid: tell the world, and make them hear you and feel you, “WE ARE! N! X! T!” But here comes Cameron Grimes! “All this energy has got ol’ Cameron Grimes fired up!” And that fire will build with that championship, and he’ll go TO~ THE~ MOON~!

But Joe Gacy asks “Mr. Grimes” that as charitable that would be for Ciampa to give Grimes a shot- LA Knight interrupts. “Lemme talk to ya!” He’s looking at a heap of happy hot garbage when all the incels know they should be chanting “You Deserve It!” to Knight. But Odyssey tells Knight, “Last week, you lost twice in the same day! What’re you talking about, man? Shut up!” But here comes Pete Dunne and Ridge Holland! The Bruiserweight and Northern Grit storm right up to the ring, but they have Briggs & Jensen in their face. “So here we are, NXT 2.0. All these fresh new faces. SO let me give you all a piece of advice that I got: make a name for yourself.”

But Dunne says the problem is, he looks and sees “a bunch of geezers who are scared to throw the first punch.” Ciampa throws a forearm! And a brawl breaks out! Grimes stomps Gacy, Holland goes after Breakker, other superstars rush out to get them some! Hudson is after Trick, Grayson Waller and the Grizzled Young Veterans grab at who they can, and the ring clears aside from Breakker, Ciampa, Dunne and Holland. Ciampa ROCKS then TOSSES Dunne, Breakker does the same to Holland! The champion stands tall, as does the brightest of the new wave. Will they be the ones to give Dunne & Holland the fight they want?

Meanwhile, the women’s division is heating up backstage!

Elektra Lopez and B-Fab are jawing, but Amari Miller isn’t backing down from Kay Lee Ray! The shoving begins and turns to scrapping! Security hurries to break this up before it gets any worse, but the brawling continues in the ring, too! Breaker and Ciampa again DECK and eject Dunne & Holland, but then Breakker asks, “Where ya going?” The fans want to see this fight continue, so how about the two bitches grow balls and face Breakker & Ciampa TONIGHT?! Fans like the sound of that! Will NXT General Manager, William Regal, make it happen?

 

NXT Cruiserweight Championship: KUSHIDA VS Roderick Strong w/ The Diamond Mine!

The Time Splitter and the Savior of the Backbreaker have waited for this long enough, so they’re going to keep the energy of the night going by opening the card! Will the Super Junior still be champion? Or will the Diamond Mine finally strike gold?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who cracks under the pressure!

Strong rushes in but Kushida avoids the knee. Kushida drops down to throw kicks but Strong stays just out of reach. Kushida stands back up, they tie up, fight for control, Strong blocks a takedown to get a takedown, but Kushida fights the lateral press. Strong facelocks, gator rolls, but Kushida gets a toehold. Strong fights back with a chinlock but Kushida fights free of that. Strong wants an arm but Kushida gets away and fans cheer as the two reset. They tie up with knuckle locks and have a test of strength, but Kushida gets a takedown. Strong fights the press so Kushida throws down hands. Kushida still goes in but Strong turns it around with a clinch.

They fight up, Strong headlocks and shifts, but Kushida powers up and out, only for Strong to run him over. Things speed up, Kushida hip tosses to an ARMBAR! Strong fights to get up and make it a cover, ONE! Kushida has a short arm scissor and turns it into an ARM TWIST! Kushida keeps the omoplata, gets the other arm and falls back to SNAP! Strong bails out and is furious as NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and the two clinch again. Strong knees low and puts Kushida in a corner, but Kushida kicks back. Kushida runs in after an arm but Strong turns that to an OLYMPIC- NO! Kushida arm-drags Strong away! Strong comes back but Kushida WRINGS out the arm! Strong gets to his feet, Kushida dodges him to SHOTEI! And SHOTEI! Atomic drop and a whip to a hip toss! Cartwheel basement dropkick! Fans fire up and Kushida winds up, FASTBALL! Strong is down, but he dodges the Penalty Kick to CHOP back! Kushida ends up in a corner, Strong hurries over and puts Kushida up top. Strong climbs but Kushida gets the arm for a KIMURA! FALLING ARMBAR DDT!

Fans are fired up as Kushida and Strong slowly rise. Kushida aims from the corner, PENALTY KICK to the bad arm! Strong staggers about, but he BOOTS back from the ropes! Strong hurries to bring Kushida in, BACKBREAKER, to the OLYMPIC SLAM! Cover, TWO!! Kushida is still in this and Strong grows frustrated. The Diamond Mine coaches him up, fans are rallying and dueling, Strong runs to give forearm after forearm. But the bad arm makes things worse! Kushida kicks, Strong fires off CHOP after CHOP, then another forearm! Back suplex, but Kushida arm-drags out of the slam to get the KIMURA! Not quite the Hoverboard as Strong moves around to change leverage!

But Kushida throws Strong over! Strong keeps moving, he gets up, but Kushida gets the body scissors! HOVERBOARD!! Strong is down, Bivens helps him get the ropebreak!! The ref sees it, he calls it and Kushida lets off. Kushida already suspects Bivens! The ref is busy with Bivens as Kushida runs, but the Creed Brothers drag him out! And Ivy Niles hits a SUPERWOMAN PUNCH! The brothers put Kushida back in for Strong’s KNEE! END OF HEARTACHE!! Cover, Strong wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (NEW NXT Cruiserweight Champion)

The Diamond Mine might as well have all their names on that belt with all the assists Strong just got! But now that they have a taste of gold, how long until Julius, Brutus and Ivy all get something for themselves?

But wait, here comes Grayson Waller! “Hey, chill, chill. Let’s hear it for the new champ, yeah?” Waller says after what happened to his boy, Drake Maverick, he’s starting to realize that NXT 2.0 is a jungle. But if anyone was built to survive in the jungle, it was Grayson Waller. So instead of just sitting in the back and waiting, Waller’s here to take one. So what does Strong say to a match with him for the title next week? Bivens says, “How dare you interrupt the champion’s celebration?” If we’re talking next week… Oh, gotta check in with daddy first? Bivens mocks Waller’s taunt, then talks with Strong.

Decision made! Next week, Diamond Mine shows Waller why they run NXT! Will Waller be baller and make it a slam dunk on his first try?

 

NXT hears from Tony D’Angelo.

He talks about the years spent on the docks, watching his uncles make some handshake deals. Some “business arrangements,” if you will. The family made many investments up and down the Atlantic, and his Uncle Paulie always told Tony, “There’s two things we take seriously: business, and family.” When it comes to sports, they were dead serious. Add a new item to that list: Tony’s success in the WWE. D’Angelo is on his way, will any wise guys try to start something with him?

 

NXT hears from Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen.

Big bad Briggs first met Brooks at Johnathan’s Pub the same night Briggs lost in the Breakout Tournament. Briggs was just trying to blow off some steam. He got three deep when some idiot, aka Brooks, bumps into him and so they start swinging. They got black eyes, loose teeth, and there’s still some blood somewhere on the bar. Brooks’ hands are like bricks, so Briggs learned to respect him. Brooks says if you can knock him onto a pool table and beat him down off it, you’ve got his respect, too. From where these boys are from, you throw hands, shake hands, and become friends. They love to fight and love to drink.

In the 2.0 era, it doesn’t matter if it’s a street fight, bar fight or dog fight, you fight these two, you’re in for a bad night. If you start something, Briggs & Jensen are going to end it! Will they fight until they end up contending for the tag titles?

 

Kay Lee Ray VS Amari Miller!

The Scary Queen of Scots isn’t letting that confrontation with the new girl go, and now it’s going down in the ring! Will KLR show Amari and everyone else in the NXT Women’s Division why she was NXT UK Women’s Champion for so long?

NXT returns and Amari makes her entrance. The all star athlete from KC, MO is all smiles now, feeling the vibe, but will she learn why KLR is a killer? The bell rings, Miller dodges KLR then eggs her on as she fires forearms. KLR shoves Miller away but Miller elbows back. Miller reels KLR in for a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Miller gets KLR up and whips, but KLR reverses and ROCKS Miller with a forearm! KLR whips, dropkicks Miller down, then stomps Miller around. KLR covers, ONE! KLR drags Miller up, CLUBS her down, then gets her up again for a GOURD BUSTER! KLR scowls as she kicks Miller to a corner.

KLR eggs Miller on now, drags her up to CLUB her down again, and fans rally up. Miller throws body shots, KLR CLUBS her again. KLR brings Miller around, but Miller jawbreakers free! KLR blocks the heel kick to the Gory Especial, GORY BOMB! Cover, KLR wins!

Winner: Kay Lee Ray, by pinfall

And that is why KLR is here in NXT prime! Will she keep climbing the ranks until she’s the one facing Raquel Gonzalez for the title?

 

Backstage interview with Bron Breakker.

McKenzie asks Bron about his huge tag team match alongside Ciampa. How is he feeling? Oh, tonight’s huge! He’s getting in the ring with the top three guys in the world! Bron heard what Ciampa said, and those words hold a lot of weight. Ciampa walks over to say it’s sink or swim. Ready to get in the deep end, big fish? Hell yeah! Bron’s ready to kick some ass! And who better to do it with than the champ? Bron gives Ciampa a smack on the shoulder, but will he watch where his eyes drift in regards to Goldie?

 

Xyon Quinn walks into the CWC.

He talks with a few female superstars about their training, and they ask him the next time he’ll be in the ring. He’s hoping very soon. They note how good he looks in the ring and he thanks them. He gets the door as a gentleman, but someone tries to cut them off. Quinn has the guy wait, ladies first. Chivalry’s dead, bro. Yeah? Quinn SMASHES the guy into the door! Quinn is a gentleman but also a warrior, will this be a lesson to everyone else?

 

Dante Chen VS Trey Baxter!

The first Singapore superstar in the WWE makes his debut as the 2.0 era ushers in more new names! But will #AllHeart rain on the parade as he still tries to make a name for himself?

The bell rings and Chen ties up with Trey. They go around, Chen powers Trey to a corner and fans duel. Chen lets off, Trey BOOTS him and then gets around to a BACKBREAKER to HALF ‘N’ HALF! Trey hurries to a corner and up top, but Chen anchors a foot. Trey kicks at Chen but Chen holds on. Trey gets Chen to let go but has to leap over him. Chen turns around into a cradle, TWO! Chen dead lifts Trey for a SIT-OUT CRADLE DDT! Cover, Chen wins!

Winner: Dante Chen, by pinfall

Trey may be all heart but Chen won in the blink of an eye! Will this young star take NXT by storm?

 

NXT has a message from “Chase University.”

Andre Chase welcomes students to day one of a place of higher learning. They’ve chosen his course to get ahead in the careers. The first lesson is on Odyssey Jones and how he failed to get ahead by losing the finals of the Breakout Tournament. Roll film. Chase didn’t take kindly to Jones embarrassing him at the #InDex Wedding, but look at how embarrassing this weak cover was. Carmelo Hayes easily rolled Jones up, and there is the face of a loser. Chase teaches the fundamentals: a lateral press with all the weight on the shoulders. Lights, please, there’s a question. Didn’t Jones beat Chase in the first round?

What’s your name again? Steve. Well, Steve, who did you ever beat?! WHO THE F DID YOU EVER BEAT!? Get the F out of here! Don’t you disrespect him! Chase throws chairs around, is class going to be canceled?

 

NXT has a medical update on Kyle O’Reilly.

His ribs are reinjured and he will be week to week on whether or not he can compete.

 

NXT also has an update on Triple H!

The Game tweeted himself that he has been “blown away by the outreach and support from so many people.” HHH is recovering, doing well and so very grateful for all the love in his life, especially from the NXT crew. Also, Steph and the girls loved the snacks they sent. HHH hopes to see us soon, and we hope to see him again, too.

 

NXT returns and Joe Gacy is in the ring.

“Tonight, this ring is a safe space. NXT 2.0 is full of conflict, from the smallest microaggression to the most heinous grudges. This is a place where we settle our differences.” Gacy comes to us tonight with a mindset of conflict resolution, where he doesn’t need to use “male privilege” to get what he wants. Gacy understands that life isn’t fair. But he believes we can achieve unity and tolerance for us all. Gacy can be the man that will show us we can achieve peace in this safe space. That starts tonight!

Cameron Grimes VS Joe Gacy!

The Carolina Cash Money Caveman is ready to take 2.0 #ToTheMoon, but will he have to resolve this conflict he started with Gacy? Or will Gacy’s old wild man antics find their way back to the surface?

The bell rings, the two circle and grapple. Grimes gets a leg, Gacy facelocks but Grimes wrenches and has a wristlock. Gacy powers Grimes to ropes, lets off with the ropebreak, but Grimes ducks the sucker punch! Pacifist, huh? Grimes arm-drags Gacy down, grinds the armlock, and wrangles Gacy down. Gacy headscissors, Grimes kips free and says #KissMahGrits! Gacy laughs that off, but then swings on Grimes again. Grimes waistlocks but Gacy bucks the O’Conner Roll, only to run into a BOOT! Fans fire up as Grimes runs in but into a boot from Gacy! Gacy whips Grimes in, corner splashes to a BIG Urenage! Gacy works to keep his cool but fans rally for Grimes.

Gacy wraps on a chinlock, grinds Grimes down, but fans rally up behind Grimes. Grimes fights up, throws body shots, then powers out. Gacy runs in but only gets buckles, Grimes runs to rally with forearm smashes! Grimes eggs Gacy on but Gacy dodges, handsprings and LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Grimes survives and Gacy is surprised. Gacy fires up, gets Grimes up but Grimes evades the powerbomb to ROUNDHOUSE! Gacy comes back to BOOT! Grimes stays up so Gacy runs to forearm smash! Gacy keeps moving, but runs right into a CAVE-IN! Cover, Grimes wins!

Winner: Cameron Grimes, by pinfall

Gacy didn’t find peace or victory tonight and Grimes has the momentum he wants! But then Gacy stands up, and offers a handshake. Grimes says no thanks, so Gacy hugs him! Gacy leaves it at that, is he going to keep preaching conflict resolution while Grimes goes for the gold?

 

NXT hears from Von Wagner.

“Last week didn’t go my way. You can either bitch ‘n’ moan, or you can put in the work.” He’s an unconventional man with unconventional methods. His journey in NXT has only just begun, will this towering man find his way back up to the top of the mountain?

 

Elektra Lopez w/ Legado del Fantasma VS Anna Scheer!

Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza accompany Elektra to the ring. Despite the scuffle with B-Fab in the back, that beef’s being put on the back burner for now. Will Anna be the one paying the price for the fire B-Fab’s lit inside Lopez?

The bell rings and Lopez takes her time with her jacket. She circles with Scheer, then kicks hard and CLUBS her down! Lopez CLUBS Scheer, runs and runs her over, then runs to do it again! Lopez drags Scheer up, throws her by her pigtails, then tells her, “You are nobody!” Lopez throws Scheer down by her hair, then looms over her. Lopez scoops and SLAMS Scheer, but Scheer throws forearms back! Scheer runs and leaps, but into Lopez’s arms! SWINGING SIDE SLAM! Lopez hauls Scheer back up to snap suplex! Roll through, wrench and BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, Lopez wins!

Winner: Elektra Lopez, by pinfall

Scheer felt the sheer dominance of Lopez, but Escobar gets a mic to speak. “Class. Elegance. Sophistication. Fuego! And raw power to command silence and respect. And all of this under the umbrella of one word: familia!” Escobar tells Lopez that she completes Legado del Fantasma. Lopez takes the mic to speak now, saying, “What I did here tonight was just a little taste of what the First Lady of Legado del Fantasma, Elektra Lopez, La Madrina, is going to unleash on B-Fab and NXT 2.0.” Fans like the sound of that! Lopez tells B-Fab that she can keep talking, “but we all know that that’s all it is.” And if B-Fab doesn’t like, then she can get her skinny ass out to the ring!

But speaking of Hit Row, here they come! But B-Fab isn’t with the boys. She rushes in from the crowd to scrap with Lopez! Lopez turns things around but B-Fab comes back! Hit Row and Legado separate the two but fans want to “Let Them Fight!” B-Fab says it’s cool, but then she fires off on Lopez again! Hit Row and Legado get B-Fab and Lopez to back down, but this has to explode some time! When will these two finally get to have it out in the ring?

 

Cora Jade checks in on Trey Baxter.

She gives him a big hug and asks what’s wrong. What, she didn’t see? Well how long have they been together? He knows she still loves him. Chen came in looking like a superhero but whatever. Chin up, Trey. Then she gives him a big kiss to cheer him up. Trey does have a reason to smile, and then thinks on “superhero.” Will #AllHeart show he can be super in the 2.0 Era?

 

The Franky Monet Brand walks backstage.

Franky and Jessi want Rob Stone to stop jabbering as they head for Mr. Regal’s office. As they round the corner, Raquel Gonzalez is in their way. The NXT Women’s Champion says she already took care of this. They finally get their match next week. Aw, well, in that case, enjoy your last week, Chingona. La Wera Loca is ready, but then someone new walks by. She congratulates Franky on her big title match, but it won’t be as big as her talk show’s debut! Lashing Out with Lash Legend begins next week, and that is something to talk about. Wait, who and what now? Will #BougieBad feel like lashing out against Ms. Legend?

 

2v1 Handicap Match: Cary Millman & Darren Chiappetta VS Odyssey Jones!

Sound the alarm! Though he called out the Million Dollar Megastar, and though Andre Chase has been barking at him, Jones is more than ready to step up his game against two young and hungry opponents. Will it be a two-for-one special on squash tonight?

The bell rings, Jones is fired up and fans are fired up with him. Cary & Darren flank Jones, get an arm each, but he blocks the double whip to double shoulder tackle them! Darren & Cary regroup, coordinate, and circle with Jones again. Cary gets a leg, Darren gets a headlock, but Jones TOSSES Darren away, then drags and throws Cary! BACK SPLASH for Cary, FRONT SPLASH for Darren! Fans fire up but Chase walks out and talks trash. Jones says he’ll break Chase soon enough, but he gets Darren up first. Cary CLUBS Jones and Darren goes after the leg! They mug Jones but Jones shoves them both away! Darren & Cary come back, Jones breaks the clothesline to DOUBLE CROSSBODY!

Jones is feeling it and the fans are fired up, too! Jones gets Darren up, scoops him, and gives him a SHOUDLER BREAKER! Darren ends up in a corner but Cary jumps on for a sleeper! Jones just RAMS Cary into Darren! Jones has them both stacked on the mat, and Jones goes to the corner to climb up! DOUBLE FROG SPLASH! Cover, Jones wins!

Winner: Odyssey Jones, by pinfall

Chase may have to rethink his classes, because we just saw one be greater than two! Chase gets in with a chair, but Jones blocks it and the chair falls apart! Jones steps and Chase bails out! Will Chase’s big brain tell him that he can’t take on all that power?

 

Grayson Waller talks with other superstars backstage.

Baller Waller is feeling good about his chances against Strong, and they tell him these chances don’t come along very often as it is. But then Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams walk in, and Melo says he would congratulate Waller, but he wouldn’t mean it. His Breakout Tournament contract guarantees that even if Waller won the title next week, he could lose it in the same night to ya boi, Melo. So we’ll just wait and see. Right, Trick? Yeah, keeping the options open! Waller says Melo can go ahead and do that. Waller heads out, will he be ready to pull a double header just in case?

As for Melo and Trick, the #ToxicAttraction of Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne walk by to say hey. Well, damn! They fine! And…

Toxic Attraction goes to the ring!

Mandy leads the way, we’ll hear from this newest trio in the NXT Women’s Division after the break.

QUICK NOTES

AEW is pumping up Dark again, but this is a pretty big week for them being in New York for Dynamite and Rampage and paving the way towards the anniversary and the start of “season three.” Great to see a lot of fresh match-ups just within the established roster, such as the various Dark Order matches. Garcia VS Angels is probably going to be a show stealer in and of itself. Kingston VS Bear Bronson sounds like another great one, and I like that former WWE Cruiserweights are showing up somewhere. Curt Stallion & August Grey deserved better chances than WWE’s Prick Khan gave them, so maybe Tony Khan can at least find them a place to be within the various partnerships, even if it’s with Impact or NWA.
