Medical update on Zoey Stark.
As she tweeted out herself today, she tore her ACL and meniscus in Toxic Attraction’s backstage attack. But the bad news for them is that Stark’s surgery went great and she’s already starting rehab. She vows to be back better and stronger, with those three as her prime targets. But for now, she’s cheering on the trio of Shirai, Kacy & Kayden! Speaking of which…

The numbers game still works out, as Gigi finds a way to win it for her team! Will the Toxic Era of the NXT Women’s Division continue on and heat up the winter?
Backstage interview with Pete Dunne.
McKenzie wants his thoughts on Tony D’Angelo’s comments. If Tony wants to make a name for himself, he knows where to find Dunne. When Tony’s ready, he can come chat with the Baddest Man in NXT. Trick Williams & Carmelo Hayes walk in, and Trick doubts Dunne’s the baddest man in NXT. But he is the baddest man on Twitter. Melo & Trick are in Dunne’s face, calling him a bum, his mama a bobblehead, and his daddy a boot licker. If you want to fight, strap up the boots and make the ring talk. They’re #BoutItBoutIt. What is he on about? Melo says that maybe Dunne will understand The A Champion better.
What part didn’t he understand? Where Melo said he doesn’t care what Dunne thinks? Or where Dunne can kiss Melo’s ass? How about the part where Dunne breaks their fingers. Go on, get outta here. Trick & Melo head out, will Dunne prove he’s worthy of the A Championship to the A Champion’s face?
MSK’s journey continues.
But they’re tiring out. Wes Lee asks if they’re there yet. Nash Carter knows they’re close. He can sense it. Look look look! “I have moved. You can find me at…” Wait what?! They have to go even further now?! Carter tries to get Lee to accept they still have to see the guru. Fine, fine. But they are NOT walking. Okay, they can get scooters. No way, this place is 420 miles away. They’re flying. Alright, Carter’s fly. Okay no more supplies for him. They also gotta shower, and get changes of clothes. Meet back at airport. Does that mean they join the Mile High Club? Is that what that means? Uh, only one way to find out!
Kay Lee Ray VS Sarray!
Toxic Attraction lingers on the ramp to enjoy their victory, but the Scary Queen of Scots blows right past them. Will KLR use the Warrior of the Sun as a stepping stone towards that NXT Women’s Championship?
NXT returns and Sarray has made her entrance. The bell rings and Sarray offers a handshake. KLR takes it, only to reel her in for a lariat! KLR stomps Sarray around and fans boo.

Winner: Kay Lee Ray, by pinfall
The vicious streak is still intact, will it lead KLR to another women’s title reign?
Backstage interview with Joe Gacy.
We saw Boa going through “some issues,” but why did Gacy want this match with him? “Every single one of us has to go through changes. We all hide our true feelings by hiding behind a mask.” Gacy sees what Boa is going through, and his heart goes out to him. It just seems that Boa feel she needs to hide his true self. That is a genuine tragedy. No one should have to hide, and hopefully through their match, Boa can see that. The same goes for Harland. Harland shouldn’t have to feel uncomfortable in his own skin. Gacy knows Harland is out there. Wherever he is, he should reach out to Gacy. Gacy is doing this for “us.” Will Gacy break through to Boa in their match? Or will Boa just break Gacy?
Bron Breakker speaks on being part of the WWE UK Tour.
It was an honor for him to perform in England. The fans all around the world made this the greatest time of his life. It was his first performance in front of a large scale crowd, and he got to talk and learn from a lot of big names from Raw and SmackDown. He’s getting that PhD Ciampa was talking about, and is planning on kicking Ciampa’s ass to become champion!
Boa VS Joe Gacy!
Xia Li has moved on to SmackDown, and Mei Ying has suddenly disappeared. Boa is the last piece of Tian Sha standing, but will Gacy’s message of inclusion show him he doesn’t have to do this all alone?
The bell rings, Gacy tries to reason with Boa but Boa kicks his handshake away. Boa kicks more, Gacy dodges, headlocks and holds tight as Boa tries to power out. Boa powers up to power Gacy to ropes, and Gacy lets go. Gacy then sucker punches Boa! Boa scowls, runs in but is put on the apron! Gacy storms over, Boa ROCKS him with a forearm then shoulder sin. Boa slingshots to sunset flip, TWO! Boa dropkicks Gacy down! Gacy wants Boa to wait, but Boa shows no mercy! So Gacy throws him into ropes! And scoops for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Gacy throws hands on Boa, then EuroUppers. Gacy drags Boa up to suplex high and hard! Cover, TWO!
Gacy clamps onto Boa with a neck wrench but fans rally behind Boa as he endures. Boa fights up, fans rally, and Boa powers Gacy into a corner! Gacy clamps on again but Boa rams him into buckles then arm-drags him away! Boa blocks the clothesline, then blocks the kick to spin Gacy and KICK him down! Boa clinches to throw knees, then whips Gacy to ropes for a KNEE! And then back the other way for another knee! Boa wrenches, reels Gacy in, BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Fans fire up as Boa roars and brings Gacy up. Boa whips, Gacy reverses, but Boa BOOTS back! Gacy is down, fans rally for Boa, but then the lights start flickering?
Boa raises a hand, and the power of Tian Sha is building! He choke grips Gacy and has him at the ropes! The ref counts, Boa won’t stop! The ref calls for the bell!
Winner: Joe Gacy, by disqualification
Boa lets Gacy go, and then leaves the ring without a word. Gacy smiles, because he and Harland did it. If by surviving, then yes, he did survive. But what exactly is going on with Boa? Will anyone be brave enough to find out?
NXT shares a Halloween Havoc interview with Kushida & Jiro.
While dressed up as amateur wrestlers to mock the Creed Brothers, they told McKenzie that they are more than ready to “CRUSH the Creed Brothers!” Jiro had a great idea! Since they’re both Japanese wrestlers, their team name should be “Japanese Japanese!” No no no, Kushida doesn’t like that idea. He is about time travel, Jiro is about jackets. They are therefore #JacketTime!
The Diamond Mine is watching this interview while training.
At this point, Malcolm Bivens is furious and he has them turn the video off. “Look at these Milli Vanillies impersonating world class athletes! While these dweebs were pretending to be at ComicCon, the NXT Cruiserweight Champion was beating Odyssey Jones as if Odyssey owed him money.” And maybe he does. But Julius & Brutus, you need to bring that same energy tonight against Jiro & Kushida. Because it’s Diamond Mine FOREVER. Will Jacket Time be over before it barely begins?
Backstage interview with Solo Sikoa.
A huge debut for him last week, but then Grayson Waller walks in to interrupt. Does Solo remember his debut at Halloween Havoc? Grayson gave him the intro but then Solo threw him out. Well Grayson heard LA Knight talking trash, saying Solo’s called that cuz he gets no girls. LA Knight walks in now and says Grayson’s spreading lies. Knight knows everyone knows that if he says something, he says it to your face! He’ll call out Grayson for wearing a jacket four sizes too big to the ring, and that Solo should put on shoes. Solo says he’s from the streets, where they handle issues like men. Three men enter, one man leaves.
Wait, three? Grayson got dragged into this by Knight, but Knight says this is Grayson’s fault! But will they both lose to the Street Champion of the Island?
The Creed Brothers w/ Diamond Mine VS Jacket Time!
Julius & Brutus already ruined the in-ring debut of this team over on 205 Live, but now it’s time for some payback! Will the Time Splitter and Handsome One make this their time to shine?
The teams sort out, Jiro and Julius start. Julius shoots in, picks Jiro up, spins around and TOSSES him down! Julius rains down hammering hands but Jiro gets a leg guard up. Julius drags Jiro over and tags in his brother. Julius feeds Jiro to Brutus for a SPINEBUSTER! Brutus stalks up to Jiro, waistlocks again, but Jiro drops and trips and handsprings to show off the jacket. Brutus gets mad, he gets another waistlock but Jiro headlocks. Brutus powers out, the two ram shoulders, Jiro ducks the punch to return with a shoulder tackle! Brutus doesn’t budge! Jiro counters to a wrench and wristlock, tag to Kushida for an ax handle on the arm!
Kushida wrenches to an ELBOW BREAKER! Brutus shoots in to fireman’s carry takedown! Brutus brings Kushida up, tags Julius, and Julius scoops for an EXPLODER! Julius brings Kushida around for a HALF HATCH! Julius tags Brutus in, they double whip Kushida to ropes, but he handsprings to DOUBLE BACK ELBOW! Hot tag to Jiro! Jiro unleashes JACKET PUNCHES on Brutus! Then the DISCUS JACKET PUNCH! Julius storms in but into a JACKET PUNCH! Kushida gets in, he and Jiro handspring kick the brothers down! Fans fire up as Jacket Time stands tall and NXT goes to break!
NXT returns and Kushida hits an AX HANDLE on Julius! Kushida KICKS and KICKS and whips, Julius reverses but Kushida CROSSBODIES! Brutus runs in but into a WHEEL KICK! FAST BALL for Julius! Then PENALTY KICK to the arm! Fans fire up as Kushida gets the arm but Julius powers him to ropes. Jiro tags in, Jacket Time double whips and handspring basement dropkick! Fans fire up as Jiro goes up to SWANTON! Cover, Brutus breaks it! Kushida throws Brutus out, Jiro powers up and runs in, but Julius ducks the slash! And throws the jacket at Kushida! But Jiro DECKS Julius! Jiro runs but Strong holds the ropes down! Jiro tumbles out to the floor!
Jiro staggers back up and into the ring, Julius gets him up for a GUT WRENCH POWERBOMB! Cover, The Creed Brothers win!
Winners: The Creed Brothers, by pinfall
Diamond Mine works together, but ODYSSEY JONES goes after Strong! He throws Strong into the ring, gets in and fights alongside Jacket Time! They clear out Strong and the Creed brothers and fans are fired up! Jones may be too big to be a Cruiserweight Champion, but will he at least make sure things are fair and square from now on?
NXT Media catches up with Toxic Attraction.
The champions are heading out but they already know what this is about. They want to congratulate the champs on their win tonight, right? If not, then get used to it, because they will be holding the titles for a very long time. You’ll have to pry them off their hot, dead bodies. Toxic Attraction is THE attraction. And KLR, if you think that stare down intimidates Mandy, think again. And if you think you’re next in line, take a number. As far as the tag champs, no one is next because no one on the roster is even worthy- Wait, who is this pulling up? Raquel Gonzalez! She tells Mandy to keep that title warm for her, she has something else to take care of first.
Raquel Gonzalez pulls into the arena!
Big Mami Cool storms right into the ring and gets a mic. “While Mandy is holding onto my title, I came out here tonight because I have one thing on my mind. DAKOTA KAI! Get your ass out here!!” Dakota does as asked, and is laughing as she does! “It felt so good to hit you with that shovel. Watching you lay there, motionless-” BLAM! Cora Jade is after Dakota! She has her own vendetta given how Dakota almost crushed her! Raquel walks up as refs separate the two, and Dakota scurries away. Cora almost swings on Raquel, and Raquel says she gets it. They both want a piece of Dakota, but Raquel goes first. Cora says alright. They fist bump on it, but will there even be anything left of #CobraKai after Ricky Desperado gets through with her?
Chase University is back in session.
Andre Chase welcomes another class to talk about mental toughness. “Two words that can mean the difference between success and failure.” From the classroom to the ring to even real-life, Chase U makes winners. Show of hands, who in here is a winner? EVERYONE should get their hands up. Everyone needs to visualize success and have mental toughness. Anything can throw you off at any time. Once you lose your mental toughness, you’ve lost the game. A student speaks up, and asks if that mic issue took Chase off focus and things went south? Another student defends that Chase was just trying to teach us how to show guts. He was doomed from the start, really.
Chase walks up to the second student, and says this guy has it right! He was going to say that very thing to the first student, Gabriel, the “dumbass.” How dare you come in here, half asleep with your head up your ass and question CHASE’S mental toughness. Get out of here! Quit lollygagging! And thank you, other student. Any further questions?
The Grizzled Young Veterans are on a trip of their own.
James Drake asks Zack Gibson where they’re even going. He’s starving! So he’s hungry, yeah? Good! That’s why they’re here. Gibson leads the way and they’re going to start urban training? Drake pretends to be hurt, they wait for someone to come along and help. Gibson asks to borrow their phone to make a call, but instead accesses the chump’s money app and then order some food, boom! Free lunch for them! Yeah, good idea. And it works out, too! But what does this have to do with training? If you can distract a complete stranger, you can distract a ref. Cheers, lads! Will GYV have many good days ahead with their #ScammyWham?
Cameron Grimes VS Ru Feng!
The Carolina Cash Money Caveman may have even more money now after his big win in Duke’s Poker Room. But will he win big again against his towering opponent?
The bell rings, they circle, and fans chant “TO THE MOON!” Grimes gets a leg, Feng kicks him away but Grimes ducks under the roundhouse to snapmare Feng down. Grimes taunts him with, “You can kiss mah grits~!” Feng gets up in a huff but Grimes ROCKS him, CHOPS him, then whips him to ropes. Feng kicks back, sobats Grimes off his feet, and strikes a martial arts pose. Feng whips Grimes to a corner hard and Grimes bounces off buckles. Feng clamps on a cobra twist and digs a claw into Grimes’ ribs. Duke Hudson walks out to watch Grimes, but Feng gets just as distracted. Grimes hip tosses out, gets to a corner, and goes up and over to dodge Feng!
Grimes rallies with big forearms! Fans fire up with Grimes, he hits a JUMPING BOOT in the corner! Feng staggers, Grimes goes up and leaps, BIG CROSSBODY! But Grimes ain’t done there! He stares Duke down, smiles and shouts, “TO! THE! MOON!” CAVE-IN!! Cover, Grimes wins!
Winner: Cameron Grimes, by pinfall
That’s another winner’s check for Grimes, but Duke steps closer to the ring. Duke tells Grimes, “Last week, you came into my poker room. You sat at my poker table. Played with my chips, my cards. The whole time, you were in your own little word, not even paying attention.” Grimes was flirting with the ladies and playing with his beard. Duke doesn’t know how but Grimes won. Was it dumb luck? Or did he dupe Duke? What? Grimes laughs and says yeah, he did won. Duke was there, Grimes was there, everyone saw it. Grimes beat Duke! “Wasn’t it so much fun?” No it wasn’t! You stupid little hick! Duke lost a lot of money!
But never again, will Duke lose to “someone who looks like an ugly, filthy, rotten troll living under a bridge!” Hey, what’s with the name calling? First easy money, and then hick and toll! But that’s okay, Grimes has been called a hick before. Maybe because he’s a little hairy. Maybe because he’s a little smelly. And maybe because he’s a little grimey. But Cameron Grimes holds it down! IT doesn’t matter if it’s in the ring or at the poker table. And it doesn’t matter if it’s at Wall Street! Grimes holds it down! Now, Grimes may like to play dumb, but last week, he played Duke. SO it was a hustle?!
Duke says no one out hustles him! He will NOT let this go! Grimes has no idea what losing to someone like him does to someone like Duke! So therefore, next week, in the ring, in front of all these fans, Duke Hudson VS Cameron Grimes, Poker Showdown. Grimes says, “You’re on!” Another round of cards? Will Grimes sweep Duke 2-0 now that both men are taking the game seriously?
Triple Threat: Solo Sikoa VS Grayson Waller VS LA Knight!
The Street Champion of the Island caught both the 21st Century Success Story and the Million Dollar Megastar off guard for Halloween Havoc, and now he’s looking to show both of them up again! Will that work out in his favor? Or will two opponents at a time be too much for Solo?
The bell rings, Knight and Waller argue with each other. Solo gets impatient and ROCKS Waller with an uppercut! Knight says that’s what Waller gets, but then Solo uppercuts Knight! Solo throws hands, Waller hits Solo from behind! Waller and Knight end up working together as they stomp Solo, and then they bring him up to double whip. Solo ducks their clotheslines to DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE back! Solo rains down fists on Waller, then runs to drop a headbutt! Waller flounders, Solo brings him up and Waller JABS! Solo runs, Waller ducks then hurdles, then dodges but Knight dumps him out! Knight DECKS Waller, smirks, but Solo gets Knight by his hair!
Solo drags Knight up to hip toss him into the ring! Knight staggers, Solo clinches for knees, then whips him to ropes, Waller dumps Knight out now and smirks, but Solo grabs onto Waller! Waller hotshots Solo, gets in and brings Solo around, but Solo blocks to suplex! Knight hits Solo down! Knight gets Waller to work with him again to DOUBLE SUPLEX! Knight rains down fists, fans duel for Solo and Waller but leave Knight out. Waller rains down fists, Knight runs to drop an elbow! Waller won’t be outdone, he shows his elbow drop! Fans chant “LA SUCKS!” but Solo ROCKS Waller! Knight splashes Solo, Waller adds a clothesline! Knight runs in but Waller puts Solo up top.
Knight pulls Waller down, but Waller returns the favor. They argue, but sort it out and both go up after Solo. Solo slips down to get them both for SUPER POWERBOMBS! Fans fire up with Solo, and Solo ROCKS Waller, CLOBBERS Knight, then fireman’s carries Waller. He BOOTS Knight down then hits the SAMOAN DROP! Knight and Waller end up in opposite corners, Solo HIP ATTACKS Waller! Then HIP ATTACKS buckles as Knight moves! NECKBREAKER! Knight fires up but fans boo. Waller gets Knight for cravat knees! Mule kick to Solo but Solo throws Waller out. Knight CLOBBERS Solo! Waller gets in with the SLINGSHOT STUNNER!
But Solo SUPLEXES Waller out of the ring!! Solo goes up top to FLYING SPLASH onto Knight! Cover, Solo wins!
Winner: Solo Sikoa, by pinfall
That was a big win for Solo, but he acts like that was expected of him! Will Solo defy all expectations and head for a title?
Backstage interview with Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta.
These two were so close to winning the tag titles, but what’s next? Persia says they were fingertips from the titles, as was Indi. She touched the titles like she does Sexy Dexi. No, pull back. Too much. Tony D’Angelo walks in and tells “Mrs. Lumis” he was hoping to find her hubby. But seems he and the “bahdest man,” Pete Dunne are all ducking Tony like his cousin, Andy, ducks metal detectors. But sorry to say this, but when he’s done pummeling Dexter next week, Indi will be back on the market. Speaking of, he got this at the docks today. A gift for Dexter. He’ll get the message. You ladies take care of the kids. Wait, a dead fish? Will Lumis have a message of his own to send to Tony?
El Legado Del Fantasma is heading to the ring.
And Elektra Lopez hopes Xyon Quinn is watching. She’s in action after the break, who will she look to break to get ahead in the women’s division?
Tommaso Ciampa was also part of the WWE UK Tour.
Ciampa defended the NXT Championship and won against Sami Zayn and Bron Breakker. That is the responsibility, that is the job, and there is no better man than to represent this brand than him. He’s looking around at some of the best young stars today, and then he sees Bron Breakker. Breakker is growing, learning, getting better. But there is nothing that Bron Breakker or anyone else can do to make up for 17 years of experience. It isn’t sink or swim, jumping into the deep end. You’re in there with Tommaso Ciampa! Will Ciampa be the one true measuring stick in NXT?
Elektra Lopez VS Erica Yan!
Legado Del Fantasma’s leading lady takes on newcomer Erica Yan, who we saw debut on 205 Live. Will Elektra make it so Erica wants to stay on 205 Live?
The bell rings, they tie up, Lopez powers Erica right to a corner! Erica turns it around, but lets off cleanly. Lopez smirks, but runs into an arm-drag! She blocks the next one, brings Erica up to throw her down! Erica gets up but Lopez LARIATS! Lopez stomps away on Erica, drags her up by her hair, talks trash and then puts her in the ropes to choke her! The ref counts, Lopez lets off to go outside and talk some smack. She SLAPS Erica down, then gets in to bring Lopez up and suplexes hard! Float over and then a wrench, to a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, Lopez wins!
Winner: Elektra Lopez, by pinfall
Fast and furious to say the least, Lopez gets another win for Legado. She then gets the mic to say, “What La Madrina wants, La Madrina gets. And what I want right now… is Xyon Quinn.” The Fighting Gentleman obliges and heads right to the ring. He stands face to face with Legado, and Lopez says he turned a lot of heads last week. Especially hers. He was very impressive. How would he like to join Legado Del Fantasma? Fans are divided on that, but Quinn gets the mic. “Elektra. You really are amazing. But I just can’t get down with Legado. I’m sorry.” Wilde gets mad, shoves Quinn, and then Quinn CLOBBERS Wilde and Mendoza!
Quinn throws off his jacket, DECKS Wilde right out of the ring! Mendoza runs in but is TOSSED out onto Wilde! Quinn is left with Lopez, blocks both her slaps, and then twirls her around! Lopez shakes free of his embrace, and then keeps Legado from going after him. Will La Madrina have to accept some things just don’t go her way? Or will she find a way to make Quinn join up?
NXT WarGames is coming!
Sunday, December 5th! Get ready for it!
Backstage interview with Kyle O’Reilly.
McKenzie points out his loss to Legado last week, but also the controversy of the ref not seeing Wagner’s feet in the ropes. Well, that was a mistake, but that’s okay. Kyle’s made mistakes in his career. And things are uncertain. Should he stay a singles competitor or go all in with Von Wagner? Well, there’s something special here, so they’ll go for the tag team titles. But speaking of, Imperium walks in and are chuckling at the idea of Kyle wanting the tag titles again. But then Wagner walks up and asks if they have a problem. With them? Not even on their best day. Imperium backs down, but will Kyle & Von force their hand?
Pete Dunne VS Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams!
The Bruiserweight may not have Ridge Holland by his side, but he doesn’t mind proving what he can do on his own. Will he break it to Carmelo that he isn’t the top guy in NXT?
NXT returns once again as the North American Champion and his best bud make their entrance. The bell rings, Dunne goes right at Melo and BLASTS him into the corner! Dunne stomps a mudhole in, lets off as the ref counts, but Melo comes back ot kic klow. Dunne powers out of the headlock and CLOBBERS Melo with a clothesline! Melo takes a moment ot catch his breath and even Trick is stunned. Dunne hammerlocks, chinbars and wrangles Melo down to the mat to stomp away on his head! Dunne then bends the pinkie! And the rest of the fingers! Then he isolates the arm to STOMP the hand!
Dunne drags Melo up, whips Melo to ropes but Melo rolls off his back to mule kick, front kick and dodge to spinrgobard lARIAT! Fans fire up as Melo rains down hands. Fans chant, “Whoop That Trick!” even though this is Melo and Dunne, and Melo KICKS Dunne’s arm! Dunne wrenches Melo to KICK the arm in return! Melo writhes, Dunne gets the arm again and wrenches. Melo pulls hair, pushes Dunne away, but runs in to be put on the apron. Dunne gets the arm to wrench and ELBOW BREAKER! Melo drops and Trick checks on him, but Dunne slingshots in! Dunne goes for the arm but Melo SMACKS him off the apron!
Melo brings Dunne around, but Dunne blocks to APRON X-PLEX! Trick is freaking out for Melo as Dunne looms over him. But wait! Lumis appears outta nowhere! And he’s… joining commentary?! What will Lumis have to say, if anything at all, while NXT goes picture in picture.
Dunne DECKS Melo and he flops to the ropes. Dunne goes after Melo but Melo bails out. Dunne pursues, and SMACKS Melo off the announce desk! Dunne and Lumis stare down but neither says a word. Melo CHOPS Dunne, Dunne CHOPS Melo and put shim on the apron to CLUB him in the chest! Dunne slides in, stalks Melo, gets the legs, and hooks Melo up to then pull on Melo’s hair. The ref reprimands, Dunne goes for the arms, and he wants the surfboard. Dunne pulls back, and again, but can’t get Melo up so he just STOMPS the knees. Dunne then turns Melo back over, ties up the legs, but Melo crawls to a ropebreak. So Dunne KICKS that arm!
Dunne drags Melo up, CHOPS him, but Melo grabs at Dunne’ s leg. So Dunne wrenches the arm and pulls back on it! Trick coaches Melo but Dunne pulls on the other arm! Dunne pulls on the fingers, traps the arm, and has Melo in a modified Rings of Saturn! Melo endures so Dunne lets him go to STOMP his head! Dunne drags Melo back up, Melo throws body shots then forearms, but Dunne DECKS him again! NXT returns to single picture and Dunne again traps Melo’s arms. Fans rally for the Bruiserweight, Melo endures, and then Dunne gets a leg. Dunne SMASHES the knee into the mat again and again and again!
Dunne lets Melo go just to loom over him, then KICK him in the side! Melo kicks back from below but Dunne eggs him on with a glare. Dunne drags Melo up to kick, run and KNEE Melo down! Melo flounders, Dunne aims from a corner, but Melo dodges the boot to CODE BREAKER! Both men are down and fans fire up! Melo crawls to a cover, TWO! Dunne gets to ropes, “This is Awesome!” as Melo rises. Melo runs in but Dunne BOOTS back. Dunne runs, Melo slips under and fireman’s carries, TKO KNEE SMASH and a LARIAT! Melo fires up, Dunne crawls to a corner. Melo whips, Dunne reverses but Melo ducks under the roundhouse to pump handle and back suplex! Cover, TWO!
Fans argue the count on Melo’s behalf but Dunne was a long-time United Kingdom Champion for a reason. Melo runs in but misses in the corner, Dunne GAMANGIRIS him down, then drops knees on the bad arm! RUNNING FOREARM! Dunne reels Melo in, SIT-OUT POWERBOMB! Cover, TWO! Melo is showing his own toughness and Trick coaches him up. Fans fire up, Dunne watches Melo rise. ENZIGURI! Melo rebounds to BOOT! Dunne checks his chin, Melo springboards again, into the HEAVY RIGHT! Dunne fire sup, but Melo suplexes to a CUTTER! Cover, TWO!! Dunne is still in this and Melo grows frustrated!
Trick coaches Melo up again, Melo fires himself up, and he drags Dunne up to throw a forearm! Fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” as Melo throws more forearms. Dunne SLAPS Melo, but Melo tilt-o-whirls for a fast takedown, into a GargaNo Escape?!? Melo’s copying Johnny’s over the shoulder chicken wing, but Dunne fights free of that! He JAMS Melo’s fingers into the mat! Dunne has blood in his mouth, drags Melo around for Kowata Kicks, then stands him up. Melo ROCKS Dunne with a forearm, but Dunne waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Trick slithers in but Dunne STMOPS his hands! STOMPS for Melo, BUZZSAW! But Melo whips Dunne into the ropes!
Dunne sputters, the ref keeps Melo back, but Trick has his shoe! But Lumis DECKS Trick! No more cheating for Trick! But Johnny Gargano slithers up from under the ring! He spooks Melo, Dunne gets him for a BITTER END! Cover, Dunne wins!!
Winner: Pete Dunne, by pinfall
The Way just helped the Bruiserweight get one over on Melo! And Gargano gives Lumis a thumbs up on the teamwork. But will this only complicate the title picture for the A Championship? Will Melo wish he’d miss just this once?
This was a pretty great NXT here, especially for the 2.0 era. The Six Woman Tag being the opener was a surprise, but I suppose it was fine. Shirai is a great wrestler, Kacy & Kayden are getting there, but Toxic Attraction clearly only have the titles for story reasons and Vince reasons. Mandy is doing well in the wrestling style she’s using, and Gigi probably just needs reps with these opponents because she was good as Priscilla Kelly. Jacy Jayne is certainly eager, but she keeps trying moves she’s not ready for. Her tope botch before Halloween Havoc, her sloppy slingshot this match, she’s the weak link of Toxic Attraction.
Raquel had a great bit that played off Toxic Attraction, though, and I like that both she and Cora want after Dakota Kai. I don’t see Dakota getting a teammate, but I feel like this is leading to Cora hanging around Raquel. After all, WWE cut her boyfriend, Trey Baxter, so she doesn’t have that story anymore. KLR also had a good match with Sarray, but again I’ll say Sarray has been pushed out of the way because of 2.0. Mandy calling out KLR definitely nods to those two being the title match, and I really hope they don’t do KLR dirty. KLR really should follow behind Rhea Ripley in being a woman who was both NXT UK and NXT Prime women’s champion.
I like that MSK’s journey continues just to make a nod that they need to go 420 miles. At this rate, it has to be someone like Rob Van Dam as their guru. GYV having their own on-the-town promo was pretty funny. It’s definitely a nod back to the bad reputation Liverpuddlians have, and plugs how they are going to get even sneakier as Heels now. Kyle O’Reilly is continuing to drop off from where he was just before 2.0 Era, I really don’t feel he and Wagner should be the ones to dethrone Imperium. Creed Brothers VS Jacket Time was good, but it should’ve been obvious Strong was going to help them cheat. Jones joining in sets up a big Six Man Tag, that’ll probably be Diamond Mine’s loss.
I find it interesting that this was where NXT looked to do both Boa’s story and Gacy’s story in one go. Boa apparently has the powers of Tian Sha, I have no idea where they’ll go with it but maybe he recruits people to make up for losing Mei Ying and Xia Li. As for Gacy, I do think the concept of him losing but gaining strength is fitting of this gimmick. I hope Chase University becomes a faction, too. That mysterious student who defended Chase and Chase accepted definitely needs to be a member, and they can add some more as they go, even if they become a jobber squad. Grimes gets a good win, but I’m a bit disappointed they’re having a poker rematch. I thought the next step would be a match, but maybe they’ll try and do this new card game more serious and dramatic.
I like that we got some video promos from Bron and Ciampa since NXT was part of the UK Tour. Still doesn’t seem to make NXT the third brand on par with RawDown but whatever. Solo Sikoa is building pretty fast, taking down Knight and Waller all by himself. Xyon Quinn is clearly starting something with Legado, but I don’t think we need more strange romance angles in NXT. With WarGames returning, I have a feeling Quinn gets allies to take on Legado. Hell, let’s go 3v3v3. Walter shows up, he and Imperium take on Legado and then Quinn, Wagner & Kyle. There can even be tag title contender stakes on the line at the same time, even if it’s unofficial.
Meanwhile, I am very happy they’re building the North American Championship scene back up again. Melo loses to Dunne but Lumis and Gargano were involved, and then we have Tony D’Angelo calling out Lumis. You could definitely make a big Six Man Ladder Match for that title like back in the day. Melo, Dunne, Gargano, Lumis, D’Angelo, maybe even Trick in there as Melo’s insurance, or one of the other fast rising stars like Solo or Gacy, that would be a pretty good match right there. There’s hope for 2.0 yet, if they can just iron things out and use this influx of new talent properly.
My Score: 8.8/10

PLAY BY PLAY
Kevin Owens is here!
The fans fire up as the Prizefighter heads to the ring, but it turns out, he’s not alone! SAMI ZAYN is here, too! The best frenemies reunited on SmackDown, so they’re rolling together here on Raw! Fans sing Sami’s song and then cheer for “SAMI! SAMI!” Kevin says, “I think they like you.” Fans then chant for “KO! KO!” Sami says, “Sounds like they like you, too, pal.” Kevin appreciates them cheering, and Sami says it feels really, really, really good to come out here on the same page with Kevin again. And he didn’t get a chance to say this last week, but Sami says he gets it.
After Elimination Chamber, for weeks Sami came up to Kevin, talking about not being friends and working together, he had it wrong. He thought of it as a business transaction, and that’s not how they’ve done this. They’ve needed each other their whole careers, whether as friends or enemies, they’ve always used each other to get to the next level, and they did it as brothers. Kevin says Sami is right about that, but here’s something Sami might not understand. For 20 years, Kevin’s been Sami’s biggest fan. Whether fighting each other or fighting alongside each other, Kevin’s been Sami’s biggest fan. Whenever he would be asked who is the best wrestler he’s been in the ring with, he’d say Sami Zayn.
So for the last six months, it was frustrating to see Sami in the Bloodline, being held under Roman’ Reigns’ thumb, when the truth is, Sami is better than all of them! He outgrew the Bloodline right away! Kevin knew it, the Bloodline knew it, and the FANS knew it! Kevin couldn’t take seeing Sami stay under Roman. But Sami got through to Kevin, and Kevin realized it was time to get over that and take down the Bloodline together. Sami says they both know what comes next. They look to the WrestleMania sign! And here come the Usos! Jimmy & Jey glare right at Sami & Kevin, and they have mics of their own to speak their minds.
Fans boo but Jey says, “Look at ’em! You see what I see?” Jimmy sees ’em, Uce. That right there is a backstabber! Sami, what you whispering about? Kevin’s Sami’s biggest fan, they like you, too! You two are just gonna backstab each other! They’re the kind of family that cuts at each other’s throats! Sami says they’re gonna talk about family with cutthroats and backstabbers, we all know it is Jey’s dream to get back at Roman Reigns! Jimmy says Sami’s the only one dreaming! Wake up! The two of them staring at the Mania sign like something’s gonna happen there. Nothing’s gonna happen there. NOTHING!
Kevin says let’s just cut to the chase. We all know where this is going, what they’re thinking. And by the sound of it, the fans are thinking the same thing! There’s only one way to settle this, and only one place to do it: The Grandest Stage of Them All! Jimmy & Jey as brothers VS these brothers, Kevin & Sami, for the Undisputed Tag Team titles at WrestleMania! Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!” Jimmy says the Usos are the greatest team in the world! Kevin & Sami don’t deserve anything! They’ve been on the same page for three minutes. The Usos have been down since day one! There won’t be a title match at WrestleMania!
Jey says, “To be honest, though… This might be our one shot to put this, uh, Sami Zayn & Kevin Owens problem in the dirt. So yeah! Brother VS Brother at WrestleMania! WE ACCEPT!” In fact, why wait? The Usos rush the ring and the brawl is on! Kevin has Jimmy. Jey has Sami, but Jimmy POSTS Kevin and Sami TOSSES Jey! Jimmy then runs in to TOSS Sami! Sami throws hands, the Usos mug Sami, but Kevin CLOBBERS Jimmy into the timekeeper’s area! Now the Canadians mug Jey! They put Jey in the ring, Jey runs, into a SUPERKICK! And then Sami sets up, HELLUVA- NO, Jimmy bails Jey out!
Fans boo but the Usos regroup and grab chairs! But refs rush out, and a SUV pulls up backstage. The rest of the Bloodline arrives! Solo Sikoa & Paul Heyman get the door for the Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns! Kevin & Sami dare the Usos to do something, but the Usos retreat to regroup with the Bloodline. But the match is made all the same! Will the Bloodline stand or crumble in Hollywood?
Austin Theory VS Montez Ford!
The Now United States Champion didn’t like all the jokes made at his expense, and he took it out on Angelo Dawkins. But will he be able to do the same to the other half of the Profits? Or will A-Town go down this close to WrestleMania?
Raw returns and Ford makes his entrance. Dawkins sees him out to the ramp then falls back, as Ford did for Dawkins last week. The bell rings and Theory circles with Ford. Fans chant, “We Want The Smoke!” Ford and Theory tie up, Theory headlocks, but Ford powers up. Theory holds on tight, but Ford tries again. Ford gets free, but Theory runs him over! Theory does the running man then says, “All Day.” Fans boo but Theory talks trash on Ford. Ford ties up with Theory, headlocks back, but Theory powers out. Ford leaps over Theory, then CLOBBERS him! Fans fire up while Theory is dazed. Ford says, “You Can’t See Me!”
Ford stalks Theory, but Theory throws body shots and haymakers! Theory CHOKES Ford on the ropes! The ref counts, Theory lets off, but Theory storms up to bump Ford off buckles. Theory stomps away on Ford, the ref counts, but Theory lets off at 4. Fans boo but Theory soaks it all up. Theory then brings Ford up, but Ford turns things around and gives all those stomps back! Theory dodges the haymaker to kick and whip, but Ford reverses and follows to LARIAT! Theory stands, Ford clotheslines Theory up and out! Fans fire up, and Ford TOSSES Theory over the barriers! Fans fire up more as Ford celebrates with them and Raw goes to break!
Raw returns again and Theory has Ford up top, but Ford fights back with body shots! Ford ROCKS Theory, Theory holds onto ropes to stay up, but Ford CLAWS his face then DECKS him! Ford stands up to CROSSBODY! Both men are down and fans fire up! Theory and Ford stand, Theory storms up but Ford counter punches! And again! Ford rallies with big clotheslines, then he dodges to UPPERCUT! Ford hits a BIG back suplex, to a handspring, “You Can’t See Me!” STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Theory survives but Ford has the fans behind him. Ford waits on Theory to stand, and then clinches, but Theory elbows free!
Theory brings Ford in, Ford wrenches out and ROCKS Theory! Theory rebounds to BOOT! Ford ENZIGURIS in return! Theory staggers, but he still fireman’s carries! Ford slips free to DDT! Theory bails out and sputters, but Ford kips up to then FLY!! Direct hit at the ramp and St. Louis is thunderous! Ford puts Theory back in, climbs up the corner, and FROM THE HEAVEN- NO, Ford has to roll through as Theory moves! Somersault SHOTGUN! Theory calls his shot, fireman’s carries, A-TOWN DOWN!! Cover, Theory wins!
Winner: Austin Theory, by pinfall
One miscalculation from Ford and Theory pulls out the victory! But as close as this was, will Theory find himself struggling against the living legend that is John Cena?
Theory gets the mic to say, “He didn’t believe in me, and now he does. And John, you don’t believe in me. But at WrestleMania, you will!” Theory points to the sign, will WrestleMania belong to The Now?
The Bloodline regroups in the private suite.
The Usos sit with Roman, and he says that wasn’t the best start to the night. Are they good? They’re good. Well, it looked like they took a beating. Well, yeah, a few shots. But y’know what? Nothing can hurt Jimmy or hit him harder than being torn away from his brother. Nothing! And then having to sit here and answer to it like it’s his fault! Is Jimmy standing up to Roman? “I will never forgive Sami Zayn for this.” At Mania, the Usos got him. Roman sure hopes so. He really does. “Wise Man!” “Yes, My Tribal Chief?” “Bring me Adam Pearce.” “Yes, My Tribal Chief.” Heyman heads out, as do Jimmy and Solo, but Roman tells Jey to stay.
Jey sits closer with Roman now, but what will the Tribal Chief have to say to him?
Raw returns as Roman and Jey continue to sit.
Roman says, “It’s been a minute. Haven’t seen you. Haven’t heard from you. I got to beg your brother to get some answers. And now you’re back, making decisions. In order to make decisions, you gotta be part of the Bloodline. Are you with us? Are you Bloodline? Are you still my family?” Jey says he is with Roman. He is Bloodline, Uce. The two look at each other, eye to eye, and Roman says, “I hope so. So I’ma let you do you. I’ll see you later.” Jey nods and goes to stand up, but then Roman puts a hand on his knee. “I love you.” Jey goes, and Heyman returns. “My Tribal Chief.” “Yes, Wise Man?” “Did you find out the answers you were looking for?” Roman says yes.
BREAKING NEWS for WrestleMania!
As first announced on SmackDown, there will be two Fatal 4 Way Tag Team showcase matches! While the women’s division is competing for their spots, the four men’s teams are decided! The Street Profits VS The Viking Raiders VS The Alpha Academy VS Braun Strowman & Ricochet!
Backstage interview with Adam Pearce.
Byron Saxton is with the WWE Official, and asks for some insight about this showcase matches. Yes, this is a great opportunity to showcase the best tag teams in the men’s and women’s divisions, and- Chelsea Green asks to talk to the manager. Hi, Chelsea, it’s him, Pearce. Then Chelsea wants him to know that she just made matching gear for herself and her tag team partner, Carmella, but Carmella isn’t available tonight! Yes, he knows, so- So he’ll have no problem to agreeing to this new tag partner she found, someone who has no love lost for Bianca Belair and Asuka. In comes Piper Niven!
Chelsea introduces Piper, and says she will help Chelsea destroy the competition. Talk to whoever you have to in order to make this official. For what feels like the thousandth time, Pearce is the one. He is the general manager, he makes things official, and he- Well if he’s so official, then go ahead and make it official that these two are in the Women’s Fatal 4 Way Showcase! That’s what he was in the middle of doing! Oh! Finalizing? Do you know who she is?! She is Chelsea green, she is a star, and you do not want to make her angry. Don’t make her go on social media and at WWE to put her on blast. Or worse, walk him! Put her in! ‘Kay, bye.
Pearce sighs, but at the very least, Chelsea and Piper are going to see if they’re a worthy duo against the EST and the Empress of Tomorrow.
It’s a tale of the tape!
“WrestleMania has played host to some of the biggest collisions in WWE history. And this year, two titans are set for a colossal showdown.” Brock Lesnar has used his natural physical gifts for roughly 20 years. He is 6’3″ and 285 pounds, with a wingspan of 81 inches, Lesnar has the ultimate tools to deliver suplexes and the F5. So it is no surprise that he has achieved so many accolades: seven-time WWE Champion, three-time Universal Champion, two-time Royal Rumble winner. He even dominated the octagon to become UFC Heavyweight Champion. It is clear that Lesnar is capable of decimating anyone he’s faced.
But he’s never faced someone like Omos. The Nigerian Giant’s sheer size made him a spectacle upon arrival. 7’3″, 416 pounds, making him dwarf even Khali, Kane and the Undertaker. The 87 inch reach gives him a foot of advantage over the average boxer, and his 14.5 inch hands are twice the size of a normal man’s. Omos has already cemented himself as a force of nature in the WWE. These two have all the components to overwhelm the ordinary competitor, but they’re both far from ordinary. This will be a battle unlike any other, on the only stage big enough to contain them!
Omos w/ MVP VS Mustafa Ali!
If that tale of the tape wasn’t enough for you, then prepare to see the Nigerian Giant in action! Will the Beacon be broken this close to WrestleMania?
The bell rings and Ali tries to reason with Omos. Ali believes in positivity now, and he will win with a smile on his face. Omos SHOVES Ali all the way to the corner! Omos talks trash on Ali, then CLOBBERS him! Ali flounders and Omos roars. Dolph Ziggler is watching backstage, he is not impressed by Ali’s overenthusiasm. Omos drags Ali up to MOUNTAINTOP SLAM!! Cover, Omos wins!
Winner: Omos, by pinfall
MVP gets the mic and says the Nigerian Giant fears no man, animal or beast. But Brock Lesnar will learn to fear the Nigerian Giant at WrestleMania! But will The Beast be able able to build Suplex City on the huge foundation that is this mountain?
Security knocks on Logan Paul’s door.
Logan Paul and his entourage head out, and Miz walks over for a handshake. Miz was hoping to go over the questions for tonight, since Logan will surely want have him, this year’s host of WrestleMania, as his guest on ImPAULsive TV tonight. Yeah, no, hard pass. Logan leaves Miz hanging and heads to gorilla, but will he regret showing up on Raw tonight?
Logan Paul heads to the ring.
Fans are torn as “the Maverick” is ready to host the Raw debut of his talk show. “EY YOOO, ST. LOUIS~! Ladies and gentlemen, let’s get a little ImPAULsive, shall we?” Logan knows last week, Seth Rollins said that the fans don’t want Logan here. Well too bad because tonight, you’re in HIS house! ImPAULsive TV, baby! Boo all you want, but here’s the reality, y’all. He doesn’t have to be here. He doesn’t. He’s made his millions off his name and his brands, but he’s here because he loves it. He hears you, and sadly, y’all don’t love him. Maybe two people do: his dad, who he dragged to St. Louis, and that kid who had the “Drink Prime” sign. Much love, kid.
But the rest of y’all, no matter how many times he gets on the mic for their entertainment, no matter how many of these “superstars” he beats up, the fans will never respect him. But guess what? He doesn’t care! It isn’t his fault you DORKS refuse to see the amount of talent standing in front of you! Logan is a 360 degree entertainer, there is nothing he can’t do, there is no seat he can’t fill, there is no person on this roster he can’t compete with. Whether you like him or not, yes, he IS that good. That’s why he didn’t invite anyone to be his guest tonight. Because he can do it all! And did you think any of his celebrity friends would come to a place like St. Louis?
“Two words: Get real!” They’d be outta here quicker than the St. Louis Rams! Oh, sorry, the LA Rams! In fact, he’s looking to joining the Rams back in LA when he challenged “your hear,” Seth Rollins, to a match at WrestleMania, April 1st, Logan’s 28th birthday. Happy birthday to himself, he gets to kick some ass. But jokes aside, the match will be great. Rollins is top three in the business. But Logan was talking with his brother, Jake, and Jake made a good point. It is hard to be afraid of a guy named “Seth.” Seths are nice guys. Seth Rogan, Seth Curry, though he’s not as good as Steph Curry, but hey.
And maybe, if Rollins hadn’t started this beef, they could’ve been friends! But now, Logan just wants to see himself knock Rollins out again. Actually, can we do that? Can we get a replay of him knocking Rollins out? It was two weeks ago, Rollins gave Miz a superkick and then Logan hit his One Lucky Punch. Do you guys like Rollins? Let’s see that again. Oh, so good! Rollins looked so dumb. Okay, one more time! Put some production value on it. BOP! SMACK! WHAM! Beautiful! Like watching Picasso paint. Logan could see that all day! But then Logan’s mic gets cut? Logan isn’t sure what’s going on here. Did the production team not get the mics right?
Fans cheer that Logan can’t be heard, but he just trades mic. But wait! Rollins is in the production truck! He “apologizes” to “Mr. Paul” about that. He isn’t sure what’s wrong. Logan’s audio isn’t working, the video isn’t working. What could the problem be? HAHAHAHAHAHA! Now the real question, Logan, is how on Earth are we gonna save this terribly awful episode of ImPAULsive TV? Any ideas? OH! Rollins has one. HAHAHAHAHA! “BURN IT DOWN~!” See you soon, Logan! HAHAHAHA! Rollins struts all the way from the truck to gorilla, in a leopard print outfit, too. Logan mocks the fans singing as tone deaf.
Rollins heads to the ring and fans sing more, “OH~ OHH~ OHHHH~!” Logan says St. Louis can’t keep a football team and they can’t keep a tune. And Rollins’ outfit is stupid. Rollins stands with Logan in the ring as fans sing, has the mic, but then TACKLES Logan! The two brawl, spill out of the ring, and Rollins throws hands! Refs rush in, as does Adam Pearce! Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” and the two get loose! They COLLIDE, and then Rollins TACKLES Logan over the announce desk! Logan scrambles away, but Rollins trips him on the desk!! Logan lands hard, Rollins wants more, but security drags him away!
Rollins rips up Logan’s set, and hurries up the corner! He SUPER CROSSBODIES onto the security! But Logan hits ONE LUCKY PUNCH!! Logan laughs more than Rollins and he takes his leave. Logan says that’s another one, so third time will be the charm. Will Logan get another lucky punch at WrestleMania? Or will Rollins finally burn this “tourist” down?
Dominik Mysterio w/ Damian Priest VS Johnny Gargano w/ Dexter Lumis!
“Ex-Con” Dom keeps pushing his father, Rey, to fight him, but Rey has not caved in. Will the “pathetic, punk-ass kid” take out his frustrations in this match tonight? Or will Johnny Wrestling slap some sense into one smartass before handling another at Stand & Deliver?
The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Dom gets around but Gargano wrenches to a wristlock. Gargano avoids the body shot to WRING Dom’s arm, then wrenches it again. Dom headlocks, Gargano powers out, and things speed up. Gargano hurdles, drops and CLOBBERS Dom! Dom flounders but Gargano puts him in a corner. Gargano climbs up to rain down fists! Fans count as Gargano goes WAY past ten! Gargano lets off and fans fire up, but Dom kicks Gargano in the ribs! Dom RAMS into Gargano in the corner, Gargano pushes past, but Dom whips him corner to corner. Dom runs in but Gargano goes up and over to schoolboy KICK!
Dom staggers, Gargano RANAS him out of the ring! Fans fire up, Gargano builds speed and DIVES! Direct hit at the ramp! Fans fire up but Gargano clutches his ribs. Gargano stands, Priest coaches Dom up, but Gargano brings Dom around. Dom RAMS Gargano into steel steps! Dom then RAMS Gargano into the barriers! Fans cheer Gargano on but Dom fireman’s carries to SNAKE EYES! Gargano falls to the mat and Dom soaks up the heat as Raw goes to break.
