PLAY BY PLAY

The NEW NXT Champion, Bron Breakker, heads to the ring!

The unbreakable Big Booty Nephew raises the belt high, his side plates put on it just today, and he gets the mic. Fans chant, “You Deserve It!” and Bron tells Tommaso Ciampa, “Thank you.” Ciampa is an unbelievable athlete, a great performer and an outstanding human being. Most didn’t see it, but after the match, Ciampa stood up and told Bron it was his time. Ciampa then paid respects to Bron’s father, Rick, who was watching live for the first time. Bron knows he has big shoes to fill, but he’s ready. And what he loves about NXT is that there are no bye weeks. They have to get up and perform for each and every one of the fans.

So to anyone who wants after Bron and the title, know this: Every day when you show up for training, Bron’s already trained; every day you watch film, Bron’s already watched it; every day you wanna leave early, Bron’s staying. Why? Because he’s THE NXT Champion! Bron will prove why he earned this title each and every week! Who will Bron prove that against next to build his legacy? Just as Bron makes his way out, Legado del Fantasma make their way in. The Emperor of Lucha eyes Bron and the title, but will he hold onto a different asset here tonight?

Xyon Quinn VS Santos Escobar w/ Legado del Fantasma!

The Gentleman Fighter has courted Elektra Lopez, but now is the finale of this NXTelenovela. Who wins and has both the heart and loyalty of Lopez on their side?

They’re familia, aren’t they? Quinn CLOBBERS Escobar from behind, puts him back in, but Escobar comes back! Quinn CLOBBERS Escobar, gives a look to Lopez, and she puts her hands on him to feel those muscles. But then she LOW BLOWS him!! She never loved Quinn, she just wanted to reel him in! Mendoza puts Quinn in for Escobar, PHANTOM DRIVER! Cover, Escobar wins!

Winner: Santos Escobar, by pinfall; Lopez stays with Legado

Familia is forever, and the façade finally brings Quinn down! He’s no longer undefeated, and no longer Lopez’s love. Will he ever get his revenge on Legado for this?

 

Tony D’Angelo speaks.

“Petey Poppins, there’s 16 different ways to use a crowbar. Tonight, I’m only gonna need, I dunno, like, three.” He wanted to let Dunne off with just a busted hand. But he’s coming back after Tony? Oh, ey, big mistake. Tonight, Dunne is done. Tony just wanted a trophy from WarGames, but Dunne doesn’t listen. He’s like Tony’s dog, having to be taught not to go on the rug. But tonight, everyone will learn Tony is in charge. Will the Bruiserweight be broken by NXT’s Godfather?

 

Mandy Rose has a photoshoot.

“After a successful title defense, this is how your champ celebrates. Boys, get my good side. Who am I kidding? Every side is my good side.” Mandy arrived in style and left with the title. They couldn’t touch her. Mandy makes this title look hot and fans tune in to see her. Why? Because NXT 2.0 is all about Mandy. So keep watching and staring, like she knows you will.

 

Update on Von Wagner.

After the outburst he had involving assaulting members of the live audience, Von Wagner has been fined an undisclosed amount of money, and suspended indefinitely! When and where will we see vicious Von make his return?

 

Cameron Grimes VS Damon Kemp!

The Carolina Cash Money Caveman is back in action! And as he said last week, his 2022 resolution is to get him some new gold! Will that journey to a title start here?

The bell rings, Grimes and Kemp circle, and Grimes gets a leg. Kemp powers through to a waistlock and a SLAM. Grimes gets up and gets free, to get the leg again. Kemp rolls to get Grimes’ leg, but Grimes gets up to roll and get Kemp for a victory roll! TWO, Grimes arm-drags and has the armlock. Kemp claws at the hold, and Malcolm Bivens appears.

Joe Gacy speaks.

“Harland and I want to express our sincerest gratitude to the tournament committee for allowing us to participate in tonight’s Dusty Rhodes Classic play-in match. This is an opportunity that will not be taken lightly, nor will it be squandered.” To allow them even this opportunity sis something they will remember for the rest of their lives. And they plan to use this platform to show that no mater one’s size, skills or experience, everyone has an equal opportunity to be winners of the Dusty Cup. Malik Blade, Edris Enofe, when you two step in the ring with them, you are still in a safe space. And though tonight they are rivals, Harland wants to let them know they are not rivals in life.

What does that even mean? Will it matter when the qualifier is over?

 

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Qualifier: Joe Gacy & Harland VS Malik Blade & Edris Enofe!

It’s the classic “win and you’re in!” But will Mr. Inclusion and his hulking protégé try to help Malik & Edris understand they’re still winners even in defeat? Or will Malik & Edris shock the world and go from a new team to top team?

The teams sort out, Gacy starts against Edris. Fans rally up for the Excellence of Execution as he ties up with Gacy, but Gacy powers him to a corner. Gacy lets off, but Enofe ducks the cheap shot! Enofe waistlocks, Gacy elbows free, and Gacy headlocks. Enofe powers out, Gacy runs him over, and things speed up. Enofe leaps but into a fireman’s carry! Enofe slips off, shoves, but Gacy whips Enofe to ROCK him with a right! URENAGE! Cover, TWO! Gacy keeps on Enofe and brings him over. Enofe keeps Gacy from tagging Harland with an arm-drag!

Malik dodges Gacy to arm-drag him for an armlock. Fans rally and Malik tags Enofe. They double whip, Gacy reverses to send Enofe to ropes, but Enofe hurdles Gacy and Malik hurdles Enofe. Malik goes to the side, Enofe comes back and holds Gacy, Malik hits a ROLLING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Harland seethes while Enofe fires up and runs at Gacy. Gacy dodges and Enofe hits buckles! Gacy drags Enofe over, tag to Harland!

Fans fire up, Enofe tags Malik, but Harland hits Malik first. Harland has a SLEEPER! Malik JAWBREAKERS free, but Harland just gets angrier! He waistlocks Malik to RAM him into the corner, then he digs his knee in! The ref counts, Harland lets off, but then digs his knees in again! Harland CLOBBERS Enofe, then drags him in to POST him! Harland goes back to Malik, dribbles his head off the buckles, but the ref counts. Harland keeps going, the ref disqualifies him!

Winners: Malik Blade & Edris Enofe, by disqualification (qualify for the Dusty Rhodes Classic)

Harland won’t stop torturing Malik in the corner! The ref gets his attention, but Gacy hurries in to keep Harland from attacking the ref. The ref says he’s just doing his job, and Gacy calms Harland. How is it Gacy can quell the rage of Harland? Can Malik & Edris rebound from this to take the Dusty Cup?

 

Imperium speaks.

Walter says the faction was built on three key principles: integrity, discipline and honor. “Every part of our many successes has been achieved through the glory of working harder than everybody else.” Barthel says it is impossible to explain the level of commitment to everyone here. Americans are imperfect specimens, living lives of gluttony and sloth, and are unable to imagine a world without entitlement and spoils. Aichner says when Imperium achieve success, they don’t celebrate and congratulate themselves or take time off. They just work harder. There is no easy road. Perfection is paved with pain and suffering. They don’t wish upon stars or believe in pipe dreams.

They look down on the unkempt, uneducated and unfashionable. They carry and present themselves with class, elegance and sophistication. They are Imperium, and they are not like you. To them, the mat is sacred. Will they build an empire here in NXT?

 

Crowbar on a Pole: Pete Dunne VS Tony D’Angelo!

The Bruiserweight doesn’t care that he has a busted hand, he’ll beat Tony D’s brakes off with every other part of his body. Will Dunne be done with Tony after this? Or will Tony take the crowbar and leave the winner?

The bell rings and the two stare down. Then they both look at the crowbar, and Tony heads that way! Dunne chases after, but Tony DECKS him! Tony says he outsmarted Dunne, he just wanted to bait Dunne in. But Dunne CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Tony knee slow, suplexes, but Dunne makes it a body scissors and double wristlock! Tony endures, powers out, but Dunne wrangles him down to STOMP the shoulder! Dunne then goes for the crowbar! Dunne climbs the corner, Tony drags him down and fires off haymakers! Tony throws body shots, clinches, but Dunne counters to a GUILLOTINE!

Dunne wrangles Tony down, to STOMP his head! Dunne then goes up the corner, but Tony again brings him down. Tony throws body shots like a hockey scrum, then runs into the corner. Dunne boots but Tony blocks to get the leg, SHOULDER CAPTURE SUPLEX! Fans fire up and Tony grins as he goes to the corner now. Tony climbs up, but Dunne drags him down now. Dunne pulls hair, keeps Tony down on the buckle and stomps away! Dunne sees the crowbar tilting towards him and he grabs the hook. But Tony kicks Dunne down! Dunne KICKS Tony back, brings him up, but Tony suplexes Dunn in! FALCON ARROW! Both men are down, NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Tony knuckle locks, lifts and SLAMS Dunne! We see ringside, a lot of other items were brought out but left there because the crowbar is the only legal weapon. Dunne fights Tony off with kicks, then stomps him down, before a PENALTY KICK! Dunne wrenches and has a half straitjacket for a NECKBREAKER! Fans fire up, Dunne gets the arm and bends it, isolates it, and STOMPS it! Fans rally up, Dunne looks to the crowbar, but he brings Tony up first to wrench and ELBOW BREAKER! Dunne isolates the arm again, to STOMP it again! Tony writhes, Dunne looms over him, and Dunne kicks Tony down.

Dunne climbs the corner! He gets a hand on, but Tony drags him back down for a waistlock, and GERMAN SUPLEX! Dunne lands on his face and stomach, Tony gets up to go for the corner! Tony climbs up, and he brings the crowbar down! Tony grins and he storms up, but Dunne dodges the crowbar! Dunne dodges again, the hook gets caught on the rope, and Dunne KICKS Tony’s arms! Dunne has the crowbar but Tony avoids getting smashed! Dunne shrugs, swings, but hits pole! Tony goes to the announce desk, but he says if that’s what Dunne’s got… Tony trips Dunne, drags him out and gives him an APRON BACK SUPLEX!

Tony gets the crowbar now, he stalks Dunne to the announce desk, but Dunne holds him off. This is just like last week, as Tony isolates the arm! Dunne slips away, then dodges, and Tony hits the steps! GAMANGIRI knocks Tony down! Fans fire up with Dunne but the ring count is climbing! Knee drop to the bad arm! Dunne gets in, the count continues but Dunne goes out to get Tony in. Dunne wants to finish Tony, and he has the crowbar! Dunne hooks Tony’s arm, and puts the crowbar against Tony’s mouth! Tony endures this CROWBAR CROSSFACE CHICKENWING!

Tony RAMS Dunne into the corner, is free of the submission, and he gives Dunne a CROWBAR NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Dunne survives and Tony is beside himself. Dunne grabs the crowbar but Tony grabs the hand! Tony STOMPS the hand! Then he digs the crowbar into the hand. Dunne headbutts but Tony holds on to SMASH the hand! Tony wraps Dunne up again but Dunne gets free to DREAM SMASHER ELBOW! GAMANGIRI after GAMANGIRI in the corner! KNEE DROP to the arm, BUZZSAW to the face! Dunne has the crowbar and fans fire up! Dunne swings, Tony gets around, GERMAN SUPLEX! Dunne lands on his feet, drop toehold, and CROWBAR STF!!

Tony endures as the crowbar is put in his mouth! Tony back headbutts Dunne away! The crowbar might’ve gotten Dunne on the side, too. Tony brings a chair in from outside, the ref stops him, and Dunne STOMPS the bad arm! Dunne wants the chair, the ref stops him, too! Dunne kicks, Tony blocks, but Dunne turns suplex into TRIANGLE HOLD! Dunne BENDS the fingers! Tony gets the ropebreak, the ref counts, Dunne throws elbows until he lets go. Dunne and Tony each grab the crowbar, and they start throwing forearms! Tony TACKLES Dunne onto the chair! Tony POSTS Dunne! Dunne flounders, Tony has the crowbar, and he CLOBBERS Dunne with it! Cover, Tony wins!

Winner: Tony D’Angelo, by pinfall

The Wise Guy of NXT got lucky with that chair placement, but he still brutally defeated the Bruiserweight. Will Dunne just have to fogetaboutit from now on?

 

Backstage interview with Grayson Waller.

McKenzie says tonight is the night he finally goes 1v1 against AJ Styles. Yes, in the main event. Where Waller is destined to be, where he deserves to be, and where he’ll stay after he wins. He’s everywhere right now! His social media is going off, he’s the face of NXT, he’s been on Raw, and he might even go to SmackDown, slap Roman Reigns around and hit Shinsuke Nakamura in the face. It is everyone’s dream to have a WrestleMania moment, but Grayson makes Grayson Waller moments. He jumped off the cage at WarGames, and had the Chairshot Heart Around the World, times two. And tonight, he’ll create another moment, just you watch.

 

NXT checks in with another Mandy Rose photoshoot.

“Toxic Attraction is made up of three sexy, self-confident, successful women. And we’ve got all the gold to prove it. Tell ’em, girls.” Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne being the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions, they know that women want to be them, and men want to be with them. And ever since Halloween Havoc, the thirst has been at an all time high. Mandy saw what no one else did: two women who kick ass in the ring and break hearts outside it. Don’t believe them? Ask the rest of the division, and the men they’ve ghosted. No one can hang with this trio. Mandy is at the top of her game, and there isn’t a tag team in the world that can touch Gigi & Jacy. If you wanna prove them wrong, you know where to find them. Follow the crowd, because they follow Toxic Attraction, the attraction of NXT.

 

Six Woman Tag: Indi Hartwell, Persia Pirotta & Wendy Choo VS Kacy Catanzaro, Kayden Carter & Amari Miller!

Persia & Indi are eager to get back at the tag titles, but it’s hard to say if Wendy is eager to do anything. Will Wendy wake up and bring the fight? Or will KC Squared plus the Vibe of St. Louis equal a winning combination?

The teams sort out, Indi starts against Amari and Wendy takes another nap. Indi and Amari tie up, Amari gets the arm and wrenches to a wristlock. Amari throws Indi, brings her back up but Indi powers out. Amari mule kicks and SHOTGUNS Indi out! Amari builds speed, Kacy tags in, Amari DIVES! Direct hit, Kacy tags Kayden, and they work together so Kayden can FLY and take out Indi! Kacy then TORNILLOS to take out Persia! Fans are fired up, Wendy wakes up to see what’s going on, and we see Brooks & Briggs watching backstage. Kayden gets in, Indi follows, and Indi whips but Kayden boots back. Kayden gets the arms, hammerlock to COMPLETE SHOT! Cover, TWO!

Fans chant, “NAP TIME!” for Wendy as Kayden keeps Indi from the corner. Indi kicks Kayden, Kayden gets an arm, but Indi keeps Kayden from her corner now. Indi whips Kayden to the corner, Kayden dropkicks Persia! Indi reels Kayden back in, Kayden sunset flips, TWO! Kayden and Indi DOUBLE FOREARM each other down! Wendy takes a sip of- Where’d she get that drink?! Hot tags to Wendy and Amari! Wendy dodges Amari just by stretching and bending back! Amari runs back in, Wendy kicks and kicks and LARIATS! Wendy fires up, she whips Amari to ropes, OVERHEAD Belly2Belly!

Winners: Persia Pirotta, Indi Hartwell & Wendy Choo, by pinfall

Wendy Choo, who knew? Will all of these women be making their way towards gold soon enough?

 

MSK talks backstage.

They’re feeling great, but wait. The Dusty Cup? She’s even more beautiful than they remember! The road to the titles runs through the tournament. And just as Shaman Bro Riddle said, the comeback is greater than the setback. History is gonna repeat itself as these two run through the field! Like the Grizzled Young Veterans, or the good ol’ boys, Briggs & Jensen. And also the Creed Brothers Creed Diamonds Diamond Creed. Dakota Kai walks in, marveling at the cup, too. She wants this, too. WE want it! Wait, we? Does Dakota have a new tag partner we don’t know about? “Nothing defers friendship more than success.” No! Don’t you put that evil on them!

 

Solo Sikoa speaks.

“Boa. You want to jump me in the shadows? You wanna fight? That’s a language I can understand.” And he doesn’t care which Boa it is, “Let’s get it.” The fight is coming, but will Boa be in control? Or will it be Tian Sha walking to the ring?

 

Kay Lee Ray walks in.

She’s looking for Mandy Rose but the photoshoot is done. So she can show up to do that but not to defend the title? KLR sees how it is. And she starts smashing everything! Mandy thinks she can do whatever she wants, huh? How about we get a shot of this? And she HOMERS the photo camera! “Sorry.” Will KLR look to break Mandy’s reign soon enough?

 

Solo Sikoa VS Boa!

The two are already in the ring as NXT returns, and the bell sounds. These two circle, and it is clear Boa is Boa with no face paint. Solo dodges him to CHOP and CHOP and bump him off buckles. Solo CHOPS again, then whips Boa to ropes. Fans duel, Boa wrenches to sobat! Boa CLUBS and KICKS Solo, then throws him out of the ring. Solo comes back. Solo ducks the roundhouse to trip Boa and rain down forearms! Solo switches around to headlock and punch away! Solo lets off to drag Boa up and CHOPS him off his feet! Boa gets up, Solo ROCKS him with an uppercut! Boa bails out, Solo follows him, but Boa hits back with body shots.

Boa POSTS Solo, the ring count climbs, but Boa puts Solo in at 5 of 10. Fans rally for Solo, Boa stomps away on a leg. Boa stomps Solo in the gut and again, then he drags Solo up. Boa has a cut on his forehead but he throws knees to whip and KNEE Solo! Then whip and KNEE again! And then again! Double underhooks, BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Boa sits Solo up and wraps on a modified cobra clutch. Solo endures, fans rally up, but Boa shifts to a chinlock. Solo endures again, blood in his mouth, but Boa leans on Solo. Fans rally up, Solo fights to his feet, but Boa wrenches to kick. Solo blocks, CLUBS the leg then elbows and and DECKS Boa!

Solo runs to drop the SENTON! Boa gets up, Solo fires up and fans rally as he clotheslines Boa and himself out of the ring! Both men are down, fans fire up for “NXT! NXT!” and Solo drags Boa up. Solo RAMS Boa into steel steps! The ring count is climbing, Solo stands Boa up but Boa SMACKS him off the desk! The count is 10!!

Double Count-Out

Boa still POSTS Solo! They brawl to the back from the crowd side, and Solo SMACKS Boa with a chair! They go backstage, is the battle going to rage on?

 

Backstage interview with AJ Styles.

The Phenomenal One says those two were going out it and that’s what he loves about NXT: the passion. It is infectious, to everyone but Grayson Waller. Waller is the opposite. We heard him, he his confident, but believes he has Styles where he wants him. That’s nerves talking. Grayson will step up to the plate, but the Grayson Waller Effect ends tonight. 2022 is Styles’ year. HIS Georgia Bulldogs won the NCAA National Football Championship, so Styles is going to ride that momentum to WrestleMania! That all starts here, with shutting Grayson Waller’s mouth. Will NXT truly be phenomenal in the main event?

 

Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams arrive.

THE North American Champion and his partner in rhyme roll up in style, and they tell security to keep it right here, they’ll be back soon. What will Melo & Trick have to say after ending Roderick Strong’s title reign?

 

Solo and Boa are still brawling!

Referees try to stop them bot Solo sends Boa crashing into trunks! And he throws chairs at Boa, then throws Boa into trash cans! But Boa RAMS Solo into spare girders! And SMACKS him with a lid! And smack shim off a lid! Solo hits Boa with that lid, then TOSSES Boa over trunks! Solo hurries after, but a FIREBALL erupts! Refs shout for medical, and from behind the trunks rises TIAN SHA BOA! Will Solo have to think twice before fighting this darkness again?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

Von’s suspension has been LIFTED! And his fine has been PAID! But why? And by who? Could Von have a friend in high places?

 

Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams head to the ring.

Fans are torn as the Face of the New School, the (self-proclaimed) A Champion of NXT and Trick walk out. They get mics, Trick says “First thing first, I need everyone to get out of their seats to make some noise for your North American Champion.” Melo, Trick is happy for you. When Melo has gold, they both have gold. See, Melo & Trick are like peanut butter & jelly, like Shaq & Kobe, like… Trick & big booty- Whoa, whoa, whoa, brother. Right, sorry. But it is what it is. Now to serious business. Set it up. Trick gets what Melo is talking about, and Melo says last week, he had one of the toughest challenges of his career against one of the toughest opponents in Roderick Strong.

So with that said, Melo would like to take a moment of silence for Strong’s Cruiserweight title reign. Trick holds up the shirt, and Melo says, “Rest in piss to all my ops.” He pours one out, then says on to the real celebration! Get fired up for your UNIFIED champion, baby! Melo is him! And since he’s had the ball, it’s been first downs and touchdowns, and he ain’t passing anytime soon. What, really? Trick knows what he means. Right, sorry. Talk your talk. Melo says he has more accomplishments than he does months in NXT. When it comes down to it, two things are true:  numbers don’t like, and Melo don’t miss.

And here’s the best part. Melo IS the walking cheat code. Melo IS the history maker in the physical form. And Melo IS the most scintillating champion EVER in NXT! Trick likes that, too. You can call it the NXT Unified North American we talk for a minute because I wanna know your name Championship. But with it around Melo’s waist, it is THE CHAMPIONSHIP! Step up and get stepped on. Because that’s all it is, and that’s all it’s ever gonna be. But here comes AJ Styles! Melo & Trick talk a little trash, but will they find they don’t want none?

 

Melo & Trick return to the parking lot.

But the security guard lost their keys?! Well who took them? Cameron Grimes asks if Melo is looking for something. Grimes says that in 2021, he would be doing donuts in this Bentley. But in 2022, he’ll keep it straight with Melo. He’s coming for that North American title. And then he’ll go TO~ THE~ Moon. Don’t miss! Melo catches the keys, but Trick keeps him from going after Grimes. Will Melo make Grimes regret calling the champ out like that?

 

AJ Styles VS Grayson Waller!

The Phenomenal One has been exactly that in his pro-wrestling career, and that includes becoming WWE Grand Slam Champion in the fastest fashion. But for the first time ever, he’s wrestling in NXT! Will it just be another in a long list of incredible accomplishments? Or will the 21st Century Success Story keep that success rolling?

NXT returns as Waller makes his entrance, to a chorus of boos from the fans. The bell rings and Styles and Waller talk trash. They circle, Waller gives a testing kick and jab, but Styles is more annoyed than anything. Waller goes to ropes for defense, but then comes back to tie up with Styles. Styles puts Waller in a corner, the ref calls the ropebreak, and Styles pushes Waller as he lets off. They go again, Styles headlocks, Waller endures and powers through to his own headlock. Styles endures the grind, Waller hits a headlock takeover but Styles rolls it to a cover, ONE! Waller still has the headlock but Styles wrenches out.

Styles hammerlocks, Waller drops back and slips free. Waller shows off with drop steps, but Styles KICKS the leg! Styles fires off in the corner, CHOPS, then follows Waller to another corner. Styles CLUBS Waller down, fans fire up and Styles bumps Waller off buckles. Styles gets the leg, Waller holds ropes, so Styles KICKS the leg! Waller hobbles, he forearms Styles back, but runs into a scoop and BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up with Styles, and Styles brings Waller up but bump him off buckles. Styles bumps Waller off more buckles, then scoops to SLAM him. Styles runs to drop a knee! Cover, TWO!

Waller gets away and shakes out the cobwebs. Styles storms over but Waller throws him into buckles! Waller CHOPS, and CHOPS, but Styles turns things around to CHOP and CHOP and facelock. Waller slips out to JAB! Then he runs, into Styles’ dropkick! Waller bails out of the ring, Styles aims, PLANCHA, but Waller moves so Styles goes to the apron. Waller trips Styles and Styles hits the edge! Waller gets in, drags Styles through ropes, and turns him for a NECKBREAKER HOTSHOT! The ref reprimands but Waller just builds speed, to slide, and LARIAT Styles down! Fans boo as hard as ever as NXT goes picture in picture.

Waller soaks up the heat, gets back in the ring to refresh the count, then he RAMS Styles into Plexiglas barriers! Waller pretends he can’t hear the fans as he steps on Styles. Waller puts Styles in, stalks him and throws kidney shots! Styles is in a corner, Waller elbows him down! Waller chokes Styles on the ropes, the ref counts, and Waller lets off. Waller drags Styles up, he whips him to a corner hard, and Styles slumps off buckles. Waller storms over, brings Styles up and cravats for a neck wrench. Styles endures, Waller throws short shoulders, then grinds Styles down. Styles throws elbows, Waller throws him down by his hair!

Waller looms over Styles walk talking trash to the fans. Styles goes to ropes, Waller CLUBS him, then Waller throws hands. Waller has the cravat again, grinds Styles back down, but Styles endures as NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally for Styles, Waller cranks the neck wrench, but Styles throws body shots! Styles gets free, but Waller LEG LARIATS Styles down! Fans boo, Waller kicks Styles around, and Waller drags Styles up. The ref reprimands, Styles ROCKS Waller with forearms and haymakers! Waller kicks low, whips, but Styles holds ropes to then BOOT back! Styles runs, but into a fireman’s carry! Styles slips out to fire off the Phenomenal Blitz!

Fans fire up, Styles tops it off with a BASEMENT FOREARM! Styles fires up now and fans are thunderous! Styles runs in at the corner, BIG clothesline! Fireman’s carry, USHIGOROSHI! Cover, TWO! Styles is surprised but he keeps his focus. Fans rally up, Styles reels Waller in, but Waller grabs ropes to fight the Clash. Styles puts Waller on the apron, ROCKS him with a forearm and Waller flops to the floor. Styles slingshots, for another big FOREARM! Fans fire up, Styles gets Waller up and into the ring, then he prepares the arm. Waller bails out, Styles goes after him, but Waller hotshots him! Waller gets in, ROLLING ELBOW!

Styles’ first match on NXT is his first win on NXT! And he gets a mic to tell Waller, “Now that I’ve given you that ass kicking… You’re good, but you’re not phenomenal. But your night is not over yet! I want to introduce you to one of my friends.” L A KNIGHT?! Waller freaks out as the Million Dollar Megastar returns to get his pound of flesh! Waller runs away into the ring, Styles is there, and Knight gets in to CLOBBER Waller! Knight fires off hands and then he DECKS Waller! Waller bails out, Knight pursues and TOSSES Waller over the announce desk! And he’s still after Waller!

They get back in the ring, Waller hobbles and Knight LARIATS! Then Knight clotheslines Waller out of the ring! Knight is all fired up and Waller crawls away as fast as he can. Knight and Styles shake on it, will Grayson realize the Grayson Waller Effect has backfired?


My Thoughts:

A great NXT to follow up New Year’s Evil last week, especially with things they managed to blend and link together. Bron had a good opening promo, but his exit overlapping with Escobar’s entrance was a great foreshadowing. Escobar winning because Lopez was leading Quinn on was a bit of a letdown but should’ve been expected. Escobar is now clear to be the next challenger to the title. He hadn’t gotten his shot during NXT 1.0, and he is a great 1.0 guy for Bron to prove himself against in his first defense. Similarly, we got a really good promo segment from Melo & Trick, and a great interaction with Grimes to set up that title match. Grimes himself is a great challenger, but I have a feeling Melo wins.

Mandy’s promos being via photoshoot (and swimsuit) were definitely in character, and even Gigi & Jacy had a good promo of their own. Not sure why they haven’t been on camera lately but as I said before, it could be about recovering from minor injuries and/or sharpening those in-ring skills. The Six Woman Tag was pretty good, and it was pretty great for Wendy Choo (Karen Q) to have a strong part in the win for her team. Indi & Persia are top choices for winning the Women’s Dusty Cup, but I’m very curious as to who Dakota Kai will have as a partner. She’s not exactly someone the others can trust. KLR’s response to Mandy’s promo was great, I hope we see that match for the next themed episode.

Speaking of, is that themed episode going to be the Valentine’s Day one? Valentine’s Day will be a Monday but NXT can still do Vengeance Day 2022. There are plenty of these love story angles floating around still. Brooks & Briggs watching KC Squared, they’re definitely going to console Kacy & Kayden while attempting to get a second date, but there’s a good chance it’ll get shot down. Speaking of them, I bet they find a way to tie the Dusty Tag Team Classics into this, too. Both Brooks & Briggs and KC Squared are going to be strong competitors in those tournaments, but probably not winners. Imperium had a really good vignette, I’m thinking they face MSK.

Gacy & Harland not being in the tournament was a surprise, but it fits in character that Harland goes too far and loses focus of what they were out there for. Malik & Edris needed to work on their timing and coordination, so who knows if they make it out of the first round. Maybe they’re to bolster up a Heel team like the Grizzled Young Veterans. Solo VS Boa was great stuff, and I like that they ended up with a draw and a brawl backstage. I was just waiting for that moment for Boa to change and have the face paint on. Those two should have some kind of No Disqualification match to really bring this to another level, and with Boa as Tian Sha the whole time.

Dunne VS Tony was a really good match, even for an Item on a Pole match. There’s a good chance Dunne is moving on after losing here, maybe even being called up through the Royal Rumble. Tony himself could move on to the North American Championship after this, without really having to worry about Heel or Face dynamics since his persona could play it either way. The main event was great stuff, and of course Styles wins. It is too soon for Waller to be better than Styles, and also he’s facing some comeuppance now that Knight is back. Knight VS Waller is going to be great stuff, and is itself a way to build someone towards a title.

My Score: 8.6/10

PLAY BY PLAY

NXT has a new look!

The logo changed first but now so have the graphics! And not only that, but Wade Barrett has TWO new commentary comrades in Byron Saxton and the new kid on the block, Suou Shah! They’re excited to be here because NXT is the place to be. They’re all ready to go, so what’s up first?

 

Pretty Deadly heads to the ring!

They’re dressed in their parliamentary best. They’ve got the powdered wigs, the make-up, the spotted capes and leather boots. They bow to the crowd and then to each other before going to the podium. They clack their gavels and bring the fans to order. Kit Wilson brings into session the Address of the NXT Commonwealth. Members present: Lord Elton Prince, OBE; and Viscount Kit Wilson. They are YOUR NXT Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly. Order! Order! First order: Do they look delicious? Like the two tastiest snack sin NXT! Nay, the whole WWE! And it is time for Ye Olde SIDE PLATE CHECK~! Look at those bad boys.

Now, to depressing matters. Once upon a time, brave pilgrims left the UK to the US and proceeded to make this a better place. Fast forward a few centuries and Pretty Deadly does the same thing to make NXT drastically better. Look at it now! They are the top of the tag team division as TWO-TIME Tag Team Champions! They rule over the fans with complete impunity. However! Order! There is the issue growing beneath them. They must search for new contenders! Wherefore art thou? Competent challengers! Seasoned veterans! Optimistic teams! Up-and-comers! All training in the PC, wanting a piece of PD.

Teams are hoping to be just as “effervescent” as the champions, but there is a problem. Pretty Deadly’s beaten EVERYONE~! Briggs & Jensen beat Gallus but Pretty Deadly has their numbers: 1-800-UGLY DENIM! Edris & Malik: One can’t keep a shirt on while the other needs to take his off. OHOHOHO! Yes, yes. Sweater vest and oil abs aren’t good enough. And don’t get them started on those “boring brothers.” You mean the Creeds? Yes! The Crrrrreeds! Damon Kemp might be closing the Diamond Mine Dojo forever. What about The Dyad? No, ew, skip them, they creep Kit out.

But that means there is no choice. Has it come to this? Yes. Order! Order! Elton Prince decrees that your TWO-TIME Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly, rulers of their domain with naught but a challenger in sight be awarded the titles forever and ever~! #YESBOY- WAIT! WHAT?! The Brawling Brutes are here from SmackDown! Fans fire up as Ridge Holland shouts, “Surprise, surprise, fellas! You two sounded pretty tough on social media talking about what happened to Sheamus this past Friday night SmackDown. So me and the Bruiser, we’re here tonight to see how tough you really are face-to-face.”

Dunne asks if there are any objections to kicking these two Muppets’ heads in! Fans shout “NO!” but Pretty Deadly panics! They were hacked! That was Kevin Nash! Kevin Patrick! Kevin Owens! Curse him! OH SHUT UP! Dunne & Ridge get in the ring but Ridge stops Dunne from tearing into Kit & Elton. Ridge says the champs sure like dressing up and prancing around like a couple of peacocks. But all they do is talk and talk about how great they are. All Ridge 7 Dunne ask is that they prove it. Because tonight, it’s Tuesday. That means it’s… FIGHT NIGHT! And then the brawl is on! Dunne DECKS Elton, Ridged CLUBS Kit and they both snatch the capes away!

Fans are thunderous for the Bruiserweight and the yoked Yorkshire, but we’ll have to wait as Carmelo Hayes makes his way out for his match. Will Melo remind everyone why he’s The A Champion?

 

Toxic Attraction arrives.

And they get attacked by Alba Fyre! She hits Jacy and Gigi then abducts Mandy! What’s going to happen to tonight’s Six Woman Tag? Well the math is simple: cut it down to 2v2, and make it a #1 contender’s match! Who will win here to head for Kayden Carter & Katana Chance at Halloween Havoc?

 

Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Oro Mensah!

The former NXT North American Champion wants that belt back but must go through a ladder match to do it. The Hottest Superstar Under the Sun has held NXT UK Tag Team Championship gold but never truly lost it. Who will have pole position going into the title race? And who will hit a major speed bump?

NXT returns as Oro makes his entrance. The bell rings and Melo circles with Oro. Fans rally, Melo shoves Oro, and then shoves him again. Melo says Oro ain’t ready, but Oro grabs the arm! Oro wrenches, wristlocks and grinds but Melo spins to wrench back. Oro rolls, headstands and kicks back. Oro then arm-drags Melo down to have an armlock. Fans rally while Melo fights up. Melo pulls hair, whips but Oro reverses. Melo stops himself, blocks a boot, but Oro tiger wall kicks him! Oro says he is championship material, then he arm-drags again. Melo fights up, knees low, and he throws Oro down by his hair. But Oro kips up!

Oro dropkicks but Melo blocks it. Melo dribbles, but Oro gets up to DROPKICK! That one hits and fans fire up. Oro runs, RANAS Melo, and then catches Melo for an EXPLODER! Cover, ONE!! Fans rally up, Oro aims from the corner and runs in, but Melo bails out. Oro stops, slingshots and PLANCHAS! Direct hit and down goes Melo! Fans fire up and Oro puts Melo in. Oro warns Trick and so does the ref. But Melo kicks Oro at the corner, then POSTS him! Oro staggers back, into a SLINGSHOT DDT TO THE APRON! Fans fire up and Melo high-fives with Trick. Melo puts Oro in, covers, TWO! Fans rally and duel while Melo grows annoyed.

Melo drags Oro up, whips him to ropes, but Oro ducks and comes back, into a FLAPJACK HOTSHOT! Oro sputters, Melo fires himself up, and Melo drags Oro up. Oro throws body shots but Melo CHOPS! Melo drags Oro up, cravats and snapmare rolls, but Oro blocks the superkick to roll up! TWO!! Melo escapes to SUPERKICK! Oro sits up in a daze but he grabs Melo’s arm. Melo breaks free, springboards and CROSSBODIES! Fans fire up as Melo covers, TWO! Oro shows toughness and Trick is furious! Melo CLUBS away on Oro, then twists Oro’s head in the neck wrench. Fans rally, Oro throws elbows but Melo smothers him.

Melo drags Oro up in a cravat, and then he runs for a corner. Oro turns that around to RAM Melo into buckles! Both men are down and Trick is worried. Fans rally, Oro staggers away but he blocks a punch to give a punch! And another! And again, and again! Oro whips and back drops Melo high and hard! Melo gets up, Oro rallies with big forearms! Melo swings but into a GERMAN SUPLEX! Oro kips up, fans fire up and Oro boots, but Melo blocks! Melo flips Oro but Oro AX KICKS out of it! Then he LIONSAULTS! Fans fire up with Oro more and he aims from a corner. Oro runs in at Melo, but Trick takes the WHEEL KICK for Melo!

Melo CODE BREAKERS Oro down! Melo hurries up top, shoots THE THREE POINTER! Cover, Melo wins!

Winner: Carmelo Hayes, by pinfall

Give Trick the assist, he helps Melo shoot and score again! Will Melo need Trick’s help again when the title is hanging high above the ring?

Carmelo gets on commentary to speak to everyone watching and in the audience. “They tried to say I was on a losing streak. Losing streak where?” While Trick gets helped out, Melo wants to watch who qualifies for his ladder match. And speaking of, here comes Professor Chase! Is it time for another TEACHABLE MOMENT?

 

Diamond Mine is with the medical trainer.

The trainer asks how Brutus Creed’s shoulder feels, and Brutus angrily shouts, “I’M FINE!” Ivy Nile & Julius tell him to chill. The trainer has to check Brutus in order to clear him. But the trainer says there is no way he can clear Brutus for competition. This is serious damage. But then Duke Hudson swaggers in, asking “Who’s crying this week?” Julius says he doesn’t have the patience for this. Duke, go away. Duke says he’s just here to see what TEN chairshots to the back looks like. Julius tells Duke to get walking or Julius will start stepping. And Julius won’t stop at ten chairshots with Duke. Oh, the older brother sticking up for the dumb one. Er, young one. Cute.

But if Julius comes at Duke while Diamond Mine is hurt, it’ll be Julius’ funeral. Oh, is that so? Yeah, Roddy’s still in the hospital, out of commission. Well Julius isn’t. If Duke thinks they’re vulnerable, let’s find out tonight. Duke will consider it. The doc should stay here, they’re both gonna need medical attention tonight. Ivy keeps Brutus back and Julius says she should stay here to keep an eye on Brutus. Brutus needs to chill, but will Julius turn up the heat on Hudson?

 

NXT North American Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Andre Chase w/ Bodhi Hayward & Thea Hail VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

Professor Chase may not have beaten Von Wagner before, but that was before and this is now! Will that golden ticket be motivation enough for the brains to beat the brawn? Or is this still Wagner’s World, and Chase U is just living in it?

NXT returns and Wagner makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two tie up. Wagner knees low, but Chase throws hands. Wagner DECKS Chase, Chase gets up and runs at Wagner, but Wagner picks him up to RAM him into a corner! Wagner RAMS in again and again, then throws elbows. Wagner stands Chase up, smothers him in the corner, but lets off as the ref counts. Chase dodges Wagner, blocks a boot and hits a KNEE JAMMER! Chase KICKS away on Wagner’s leg then CHOP BLOCKS it! Chase grabs the leg, Wagner pushes him away and LARIATS on the return! Fans boo but Wagner shakes out his leg.

Wagner storms up on Chase, SLAMS him off the mat then stomps away. Melo likes what he sees because he doesn’t like Chase after last week’s upset. Wagner digs his boot into Chase but the ref counts. Wagner lets off, he soaks up the heat while fans rally for Chase U. Chase blocks a boot to DRAGON SCREW! And then Chase YANKS the bad leg, drags Wagner up, but Wagner POWERSLAMS Chase for it! Chase goes to a corner, Wagner storms up and stomps Chase down. Wagner stands Chase up to whip him corner to corner, then he run sin, only to get buckles! Chase dropkicks the legs out! Chase runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges and dropkicks the legs out!

Fans fire up as Chase JABS away on Wagner! Chase ROCKS Wagner, whips, but Wagner reverses, only for Chase to reverse back into a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Fans spell out “CHASE U!” as Chase stomps away! But Stone gets on the apron! Chase chases him off, and THEA Electric Chair Lifts Stone! Stone fights free, but Bodhi is there! Stone snatches the banner and throws it down, only for Thea to scoop and SLAM Stone! Fans fire up and Chase is proud of his student, but Wagner CLUBS Chase from behind! Wagner back suplexes but Chase slips off! Chase body scissors and rolls Wagner, TWO!! Wagner escapes, and he BOOTS Chase down!

Wagner is furious, and he drags Chase up to the fireman’s carry! DEATH VALLEY NECKBREAKER! Cover, Wagner wins!

Winner: Von Wagner, by pinfall (advances to Halloween Havoc)

Melo mocks Chase’s loss as a “teachable moment,” but now a big, BIG man is in the match! Will Wagner finally back up his words and make NXT his world?

Melo talks trash more, saying it doesn’t matter if it’s Oro, Wagner, or “that doofus,” Wes Lee- WES LEE FLIES IN OUTTA NOWHERE! Wes CLOBBERS Melo off commentary, fires off on him around the way, but the refs hurry to stop this! Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but this will have to wait until Halloween Havoc!

 

Sanga and Nathan Frazer watch this all backstage.

The Gentleman Giant says he should’ve been in one of those qualifiers, but he lost against Von, too. And now Von beat Chase and is going on to Halloween Havoc. Frazer hears that. When he dropped the first fall to Axiom in their series, he was down. He has to win two matches in a row, and trust him, he was in his head about that. But Frazer blocked all the negativity out and he’s made it 1-1. Next week, Frazer has his chance in the tiebreaker. Sanga says if he can’t win it, then he hopes Frazer does. Well, cheers, mate! Thanks! Frazer heads out, and VEER walks in!! Sanga’s old friend is back, does that mean Indus Sher is back, too?

 

Lash Legend walks and talks to gorilla.

“Wendy Choo, I talk a lotta mess, but I walk it like I talk it like I drop it. Case in point: I dropped your ass. And I’m gonna do it again! Boot to face two, boo! Because when Lash comes around, it’s about to go down. Okay?” The Legend is ready to dunk on Wendy, but will she straight brick when taking on the Queen of Comfy?

 

Someone is handing out Schism’s happy face buttons.

It’s the same mysterious figure in the red hoodie. NXT audience members are a bit torn on accepting the free gifts, but Grayson Waller drives up in his yellow H2. Waller has security on hand and tells them they have one job: Make sure no visions of Apollo Crews’ come true. Crews is a coward, understand? Someone park the car. Waller brings the rest along to the arena, but will he not see Apollo Crews coming?

 

Wendy Choo VS Lash Legend!

Wendy’s shut up one big ego already in Tiffany Stratton in the Lights Out match, because she can bring out her dark side. Will she have to do the same thing again against Lash? Or will Lash’s legend grow at Wendy’s expense?

Lash snatches Wendy’s body pillow and BOPS her with it! The ref reprimands, Wendy is furious, and the bell rings. Wendy ducks Lash to fire off hands! Lash shoves her down but Wendy come back with more! Lash knees low, whips Wendy but Wendy reverses to CHOP! Wendy whips but Lash reverses, only for Wendy to DROPKICK her! Lash goes to a corner, Wendy runs in to BOOT her down! Lash bails out but Wendy goes to the apron to CROSSBODY! But Lash catches her with ease, and hits a SWINGING BACKBREAKER! Lash talks trash, brings Wendy up as the ring count passes 5 of 10, and she puts Wendy in at 7.

Lash stalks Wendy to a corner, drags her up and CLUBS her down! Lash talks more trash but fans rally for Wendy. Lash puts Wendy through ropes and CHOKES her while talking more smack. The ref counts, Lash lets off to then KICK Wendy down. Cover, TWO! Lash is annoyed but she drags Wendy up. Fans rally for Wendy but Lash runs to do her make-up and LEG DROP! Cover, TWO! Lash is even more annoyed but she stalks Wendy to a corner. Lash brings Wendy out, whips her into a corner and Wendy hits buckles hard! Lash stands Wendy back up to whip her back in. But Wendy BOOTS back! Lash throws Wendy down by her hair!

Fans obo, but Wendy avoids the elbow drop! Wendy hurries to ROCK Lash, then KICK a leg. And KICKS again! Wendy sweeps the legs, then SHOTGUNS Lash down! Lash crawls to a corner, Wendy runs in to handspring back elbow! Wendy goes up, BOOTS Lash out, and then leaps, but into Lash’s arms again! Lash swings but Wendy rolls to a cover, TWO!! Fans rally as Wendy goes to a corner. Lash runs in, Wendy dodges the boot and KICKS the other leg! Wendy goes up for a VADER BOMB! Cover, WENDY WINS!

Winner: Wendy Choo, by pinfall

And a big win for Wendy! Lash gets humbled, but will she stay humbled? Or is this just the beginning of another grudge for Wendy to deal with?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

Kelly Kincaid, another new addition to NXT, asks him about going after Melo. Was that a message he was sending back to the former champion? Wes says that wasn’t a message. That was a receipt. Melo smashed Wes’s head in locker. Melo tried to crush Wes’s head and end his career! Wes keeps calm and says he’s focused on the ladder match. Wes is going to go all out to get the title, but he’d be lying if he said he didn’t want to get his hands on Melo- and just- Channing Lorenzo walks in and says this is the real Wes Lee. That is a wolf in sheep’s clothing. Wes acts all sad and introspective with that lost boy look, going all, “My friends are gone…!”

But Stacks knows Wes is ruthless. Wes hit Tony D’Angelo’s leg so hard, The Don’s PCL is going one way while the rest of him is going that way. Wes defends that he didn’t wanna win that way. Sure, sure. But The Don knows how to make things look like an accident. Actions have consequences, Wes. Stacks leaves, will Wes have to watch his back from now until Halloween Havoc?

 

Gallus speak, though on suspension.

They assaulted referees and security, and now they’re suspended. They didn’t realize how soft everyone here in NXT was. But they’ll stay out of the ring until the suspension is lifted. So don’t worry, lads. They’ll be back soon enough. Briggs & Jensen, that scrap doesn’t prove anything. And Pretty Deadly, hold onto those titles tightly. And Bron Breakker, you watch yourself. When Gallus returns, they won’t just come back for tag gold. Soon, it will be Gallus Boys On Top!

 

Kayden Carter & Katana Chance speak.

A quote on screen reads, “Anything is possible when you have the right people there to support you.” It’s crazy that they’re even here! They shouldn’t even be besties! Look at Kayden and then look at Katana. Katana’s the “Goody two shoes.” Wow, really? Well, isn’t she? Katana’s nice to everyone and always tries to help out. Well Kayden can be nice sometimes. But the thing is, they’ve also had different paths here. Kayden’s known since she was a kid that she wants to be in the WWE. For Katana, her first love was gymnastics. She used that to win on American Ninja Warrior, and then she had a WWE tryout and fell in love.

It was a rough adjustment as the new girl. Katana had to earn respect, and a couple years back, she needed to step away. Kayden remembers that, and she holds hands with Katana. See? Kayden IS nice. Oh, stop it. But it was tough on Katana and she wasn’t sure where she belonged. Kayden was worried if Katana was ever going to come back. But Kayden being there for Katana helped in making that decision, and they both knew they had the same goal. They wanted to be champions together, and look at them now! They didn’t come together just for the gold, but because they wanted the best for each other.

Toxic Attraction thinks these titles are “on loan” to KC Squared. But no, the titles are where they belong, and Gigi & Jacy are crazy if they think they’re ever getting the titles back. KC Squared will never let go. As for Lyons & Stark, those two are great singles competitors, but as a team, they’re a question mark. KC Squared will be watching, ready for whoever comes out on top.

 

NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships #1 Contenders match: Toxic Attraction VS Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark!

Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne are surely worried what Alba Fire is doing to their Toxic Goddess, Mandy Rose, but they have to focus on getting themselves a second chance at gold of their own. Will they be able to finally have that rematch with KC Squared? Or will the Pride & the Fighter prove they are a dynamic duo to be reckoned with?

NXT returns and Lyons makes her entrance, followed by Stark. The teams sort out and Lyons starts against Gigi. They circle, tie up, and Lyons gets around to a waistlock. Gigi throws an elbow, snapmares Lyons, then KICKS! But Lyons blocks! Lyons stands, she pins Gigi around and backhands her! Gigi gets away and tags in Jacy. Jacy and Lyons tie up, Lyons gets an arm and she wrenches. Jacy gets away as Stark tags in. Fans rally for Zoey but Jacy tells them to shut up. The two tie up, Stark shoves Jacy away and dares Jacy to come back. Jacy runs in, they tie up again and Jacy puts Zoey in a corner.

The ref counts, Stark shoves Jacy back. Stark then rolls Jacy up, TWO! Jacy sweeps and covers, ONE! Stark trips and jackknife covers, TWO! Jacy gets around, schoolgirl with bridge, TWO! Stark CLUBS Jacy, ROCKS her, but Jacy shoves her into the corner. Tag to Gigi, she kicks but Stark blocks! Stark shoves Gigi down, but has to dodge a cheap shot. Stark elbows Gigi then springboard CROSSBODIES! cover, TWO! Tag to Lyons but Gigi tags Jacy. Lyons ROCKS Jacy with fast hands and a BACKHAND! Lyons FOREARMS Jacy in the corner! SUPERKICK! Jacy bails out but Gigi gets in, only for Stark to springboard MISSILE DROPKICK!

Fans fire up as Toxic Attraction bail out! KC Squared is doing as they said and watching this from backstage. Stark & Lyons dare someone, anyone, to get in the ring while NXT goes picture in picture.

Jacy & Gigi take their time given the sore spots Alba Fyre left them with. They talk and then Jacy gets in. Jacy and Lyons reset, but then Gigi tags in. Gigi storms up, Lyons blocks the punches to give punches. Gigi ducks, knees low, and she headlocks. Lyons powers out but Jacy tags in. Gigi sunset flips, Lyons stays up, but Jacy SUPERKICKS Lyons down! Jacy grins and runs in to back body block! Jacy snapmares and KICKS Lyons, then covers, TWO! Jacy snarls and she drags Lyons by her hair. Tag to Gigi, then Jacy feeds Lyons to Gigi’s BOOT! Gigi & Jacy then double suplex! Cover, TWO! Lyons is still in this and Gigi snarls.

Gigi drags Lyons away, bumps her off buckles, and then tags Jacy. They mug Lyons, Jacy stomps away then tags Gigi back in. The ref is busy keeping Stark back and that allows Gigi to bend Lyons back against the ropes! The ref notices and counts, Gigi lets off to tag Jacy. Now Toxic Attraction both pull Lyons back! They let off at 4 and Jacy throws Lyons down. Jacy drags Lyons up to tag Gigi, they mug Lyons more, then Gigi goes to suplex. Lyons blocks, throws body shots and she snap suplexes Gigi down! Lyons rolls Gigi up, TWO! Gigi BOOTS Lyons back down! Gigi wraps on a chinlock and she grinds Lyons down.

Lyons fights up, fans rally, but Gigi wrangles her back down. Gigi leans on Lyons but Lyons grits her teeth and fights back up. Lyons JAWBREAKERS free, then gets Gigi for an ARMBAR! NXT returns to single picture as Gigi reaches out. Gigi gets a ROPEBREAK with her foot, and Lyons lets off. Gigi hurries to stomp Lyons down! Gigi drags Lyons away from Stark, she tags Jacy in, and they double wrench to double KICK! Then BUZZSAW and SENTON! Cover, TWO! Jacy is frustrated but she clamps onto Lyons to half nelson chinbar! Fans rally up and Lyons fights up, only for Jacy to CLUB her! Jacy whips, Lyons reverses and rolls Jacy again, TWO!

Jacy and Lyons DOUBLE BOOT! Fans fire up as both women crawl, hot tags to Gigi and Stark! Stark rallies on Toxic Attraction, BIG elbow for Gigi! Gigi scurries to a corner but Stark runs in to uppercut! And GAMANGIRI! Stark whips, ROCKS, ELBOWS and MULE KICKS! Fans fire up, Stark runs, SLIDING KNEE! Cover, TWO!! Gigi survives but Stark calls to Lyons. Tag to Lyons and Stark hands off Gigi. SUPERKICK GERMAN SUPLEX COMBO! Cover, Jacy breaks it! Stark BOOTS Jacy! Jacy SUPERKICKS back! They both run, DOUBLE LARIATS collide! KC Squared likes what they see and so do the fans!

The teams regroup and then Lyons spots Gigi. They go after each other, the HEADBUTT is a bit double-edged. Lyons and Gigi fire off forearm after forearm then Lyons fireman’s carries. Gigi slips off, shoves Lyons and runs to STO! Gigi drags Lyons up, tags Jacy, and then wrenches for a ROUNDHOUSE! Jacy hits the NECKBREAKER! Cover, Stark breaks it! Jacy is beside herself and she tells Lyons that this is Toxic’s time! Jacy throws forearms, but Lyons ducks the elbow to HEEL KICK! Tag to Stark and she springboards! But Jacy moves! Stark rolls through but into a ROLLING ELBOW! Jacy DECKS Lyons and hurries to tag Gigi!

Toxic Attraction set up, but Lyons trips Jacy up! SUPERKICK for Jacy! Scoop and Z 360 for Gigi!! Tag to Lyons and then Stark PLANCHAS Jacy! Lyons roars for the LYONS DEN!! Cover, Lyons & Stark win!

Winners: Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark, by pinfall (NEW #1 contenders to the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships)

KC Squared can’t help but applaud. The duo was doubted, but Stark & Lyons pull off the victory! Will the Sin City Soldier & the Lioness bring that same energy to the title match?

 

Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“I have never feared pain. Pain makes you feel alive. But agony is a different type of feeling. When I injured my ankle, it was far, far more than just the searing pain of a snapped ligament. The agony I felt to vacate MY NXT UK Championship, a title I slayed an unbeatable force to win. A title I defended with pride and honor was taken away not by an opponent, but by circumstance. It was my privilege to shoulder the weight of an entire brand, but my biggest challenge was sitting and watching NXT UK breathe it’s last breath.

“I watched in frustration as worlds collided, titles were unified, knowing that it should have been me in that ring against Bron. Opportunities like that only happen once in a lifetime. I cannot change the past. But I can change the future. Bron Breakker is a great champion, but he’s a man. And at Halloween Havoc, he’s stepping into the ring with a machine. JD McDonagh likes to take credit for my injury, and my body bares the scars of our great battles. But JD knows in his heard that I stop at nothing to be victorious. I leave every ounce of myself in that ring, including days, weeks, months of my career! That is something that JD talks about, but he doesn’t possess.

“At Halloween Havoc, I will suffer, I will endure a great deal of pain. But it will be worth it, because I will once again become champion as the world says in unison, ‘Long Live the Czar!'” Will UNBESIEGBAR be the one to break Bron and trump the Irish Ace?

 

It’s the Grayson Waller Effect!

The 21st Century Success Story has the second episode of his talk show, “back by overwhelming demand.” There are millions watching, including Apollo, but he can’t do a thing, lad! Waller has security! Waller gets his split screen, he’s live on Instagram, and everyone already follows him. So get in the chat and get a “second vision” of this show. But let’s start off hot with his first guess, the Tony Hawk of NXT, Cora Jade! Jade makes her entrance and Waller moshes to her theme. Cora also has her kendo stick, and Waller introduces Cora’s opponent for Halloween Havoc, Roxanne Perez! Roxie makes her entrance and she smiles at her former friend.

Waller sits at the desk with the ladies, setting up his phone. Sorry, he meant to get a booster seat for Roxie. But Cora, Roxie, the rematch is coming and- Yeah, so Cora’s heard. But how many people did Roxie have to cry to in order to get it? Roxie says it was easy since everyone wants to see her kick Cora’s ass. Oh~, using everyone else to get what you want. Typical Roxie. Ladies, stop interrupting Waller. This is his show. But question: This is the second time Roxie is facing Cora 1v1. How is she feel- “I feel nothing. Because I’m going into this match with no emotion. Unlike at Heatwave, where I was full of mixed emotions-”

“Awww… Are you gonna cry?” Cora mocks Roxie’s “sob stories.” Fans boo but Roxie says this is no sob story. Maybe Cora doesn’t remember, but they wanted to break into the business together, rise to the top of the division and raise the bar together. They could be to new fans what the Four Horsewomen were to them! But the second Cora thought Roxie passed her, Cora threw this away. But that’s okay, Roxie will leave Cora behind to do what they wanted by herself. Cora says at Halloween Havoc, she will beat Roxie again, and the fans will all realize Roxie was a lot of hype and not a lot of talent. Fans boo but Cora says Roxie just isn’t good enough to be part of #GenerationJade.

Roxie says no, Cora. Now that the TRUE Cora is out, see it like it is: For one whole year, Cora put on this whole act that no one was buying. And the second Cora realized that, she blamed Roxie for it! And the fans! Waller agrees with that. Roxie tells Cora and her generation are full of- HEY! Do not use that type of language on this show! And that is the second time they’ve interrupted Waller. Just so you know, Waller has two huge scoops they don’t know about! First: in two weeks, they’ll be playing a game of Pick Your Poison. Roxie and Cora pick each other’s opponents, and the whole WWE roster is fair game! Instagram likes that! Roxie VS Omos!

But secondly- Cora interrupts and says that’s perfect! She’s already got a whole list in mind for Roxie. Well, Roxie does for Cora, too. Cora says Roxie won’t even make it to Halloween Havoc. Roxie says same for Cora. SECONDLY!! Waller please asks they stop interrupting him! Their match at Halloween Havoc is a SPIN THE WHEEL, MAKE THE DEAL! Now we’re talking. But what’s wrong, Cora? Scared? Waller points out some great choices this year: Buried Alive; Casket Match; Bar Room Brawl. How about a Grayson Waller Exclusive and give it a spin right now! And if it lands on Spinner’s Choice, HE chooses! Heh heh. Oh, right. Good one.

Y’know what? You girls both suck! Spin the wheel now! Security, watch the guests. Cameraman, follow Waller! See, this is what you get on the Grayson Waller Effect. You never know what he’s gonna do! This is exciting. Wait, who is that in the hood? Fans think it’s Apollo, but Waller takes a peek. Can’t see in there. He checks the guy’s arm under the sleeve. White guy, okay! Spin the wheel! Waller wants a Coal Miner’s Glove! He doesn’t know what that is but it sounds great. Oh, oh, here we go. And… it’s a WEAPONS WILD MATCH! Not bad! But wait, security! Cora takes a swing, but Roxie blocks it! Security rushes in before this gets worse!

Waller films the brawl with his phone, fans chant “JERRY! JERRY!” and Waller is all smiles. But then he can see in his own camera, it’s APOLLO! He was in disguise as security! And he drags Waller under the ring! Just what is gonna happen under there?! Cora and Roxie can’t get loose, but this isn’t going to end here! Just what won’t they use against each other in a Weapons Wild Match?

Wait! Waller emerges from under the ring, and his eyes are bleeding red!! That was Apollo’s gruesome vision, and it has come true! Apollo stalks Waller and asks where he’s going. Waller scrambles away to the back, but will Apollo get his own revenge match at Halloween Havoc?

 

The Schism talks with the red hoodie.

What have they been doing all day? They had ONE job. All of their time and energy is put into this mission, yet red hoodie kid can’t even take this seriously! Joe Gacy has The Dyad cool off. But red hoodie kid does need to understand: they’re not mad, just disappointed. “You need to be better.” The Schism leaves, will little red hoodie kid make things right?

 

Julius Creed VS Duke Hudson!

The Diamond Mine wants revenge on Damon Kemp, but it seems Julius will have to make it through the flop to get at him. Will Julius have a hot hand after tonight? Or will he bust and have to fold?

The bell rings and Julius circles with Duke. They approach, Duke knees low and CLUBS Julius hard. Julius goes to ropes, Duke knees and stomps and CLUBS away! The ref counts and fans boo but Duke lets off at 4. Duke dusts his hands off and goes back to Julius. Duke whips, Julius ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Duke! Julius then hits an EXPLODER! Fans fire up as the straps come down! Julius lifts Duke for the ROLLING SPINEBSUTER! And the SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, Julius wins!

Winner: Julius Creed, by pinfall

Blink and you might’ve missed that one! This is how angry Julius is right now, and Duke really did choose the wrong time to push buttons. But then BRUTUS gets at Duke! Ivy tries to stop him but he’s already in “Brutus Smash” mode! Brutus puts Duke back in the ring but Julius tries to stop him. Brutus hammers away on Duke! Julius and Ivy drag Brutus away, but then Damon Kemp talks from the perch! “Congrats on your win tonight, Julius. But at Halloween Havoc, things are going to be… a little bit different.” Brutus tells Damon to get down here so they can beat his ass! Easy, Big Brute, you had your match. Now it’s Julius’ turn.

Julius says that’s fine. Damon, Julius will be his brother’s keeper. Damon is so arrogant, Julius can’t wait to beat him down. Damon says damn right he’s cocky! You would be, too, if you were this talented. Julius might be his brother’s keeper, but Brutus is Damon’s BI*CH! And y’know what? Damon’s so confident, that if Julius somehow does beat him, he’ll give Brutus another match, “but under one condition.” Brutus says he doesn’t need another match! Just another five minutes! Whatever Damon wants, he’s got it! Julius says he knows how Damon does things. He probably wants like a million stipulations.

So what’s the deal, Damon? Loser leaves NXT? Julius has to retire? End his career? Damon says this is Julius’ downfall. It proves Julius is so self-centered. Not everything is about him! This whole stipulation isn’t about Julius, it’s about BRUTUS. Damon has things he wants to accomplish in NXT, and he cannot do that if he has to constantly look over his shoulder. Julius, when Damon wins, it isn’t Julius who leaves. It’s BRUTUS! Brutus is furious, but then he accepts for Julius! Julius doesn’t like to be cold hearted, but when it calls for it, there is no one and he means NO ONE colder. He has ice in his veins.

So it won’t be good enough to beat Kemp. It won’t be good enough to pin him. It won’t even be good enough to submit him! Julius has to send Kemp out the same way Kemp did Roddy. If Kemp likes stipulations, then at Halloween Havoc, Kemp VS Julius, in an AMBULANCE MATCH! Kemp loves it! And oh, tell Roddy to make room for Julius at the hospital. Julius says if Kemp calls for him, Julius answers on the first ring. So Kemp, get your s*it together, Julius is waiting! Will Julius save the Diamond Mine singlehandedly? Or will Kemp pick it apart piece by piece?

 

JD McDonagh speaks.

“I have a pretty unique perspective on my opponents at Halloween Havoc. I’m the only man on this planet to share a ring with both Bron Breakker and Ilja Dragunov. Dragunov is a former NXT UK Champion. He’s unorthodox, ferocious, very dangerous. We all know Bron: he’d run through a brick wall to keep the title. You can be forgiven for looking at these two guys and thinking they’re two wildly different athletes. But to the educated brain, you can see that these guys are exactly the same. Boundless energy, passionate, they both use their bodies as a weapon, and neither one of them have two brain cells in their heads put together.

“They’re gonna go out there and try to see who the toughest is, who can withstand the most pain. But what’s my plan? I’m gonna let them. The bait’s already out there, I’m just gonna let the two animals tear each other apart. Because you see, at Halloween Havoc, it isn’t the strongest man that’s gonna walk away champion. It’s not the most aggressive. It’s the smartest. And you can call me whatever you want. Call me a vulture, a jackal, a hyena. But by the end of the night at Halloween Havoc, when the lights go down, you will call me NXT Champion.” Will the Irish Ace’s opportunistic strategy help him take the title?

 

Hank Walker talks with his friends in security.

They’re all proud of him for making the jump to NXT Superstar, and he has a huge opportunity. His first match as a contracted superstar! But don’t blow it! They’re just razzing him. But Hank says Xyon Quinn won’t know what hit him. And then Quincy Elliot walks in to say hey! The Super Diva does wanna warn Hank. Watch out for Xyon. As much as Quincy loves those tribal tattoos, he kinda pissed Xyon off. What? Who could be mad at you, Quincy? Exactly! What’s with Xyon? But Hank appreciates the advice, and he’s gonna head out. They all cheer Hank on, and Quincy breaks it down. Will Big Hank get an even bigger win than the one that won him a contract?

 

Axiom speaks.

“Next week is the trilogy match between myself and Nathan Frazer. When you think of trilogies, some of the greatest superheroes come to mind. This story with Nathan is not playing out on a comic book page, it’s live-action. It’s intense. And I know he will bring out things we have never seen before. The first two matches were so close. It could’ve gone either way. And I expect this one to be even closer. But the cool thing about the trilogy story with Nathan is that instead of reading it on a page, I get to write the final chapter.” Will Axiom be undeniable when both his pride and the final spot in the NXT North American Championship Ladder match is on the line?

 

Hank Walker VS Xyon Quinn!

Hank Walker was a superstar prospect paying his dues as a security guard, and taking out his frustrations on “Big Body” Javier Bernal was just the thing he needed to prove himself to the WWE. Will he prove they made the right choice? Or will Xyon prove he IS the “X Factor” after all?

The bell rings and Xyon RAMS Hank into a corner! Xyon rams his shoulder in more and more, then whips corner to corner. Hank reverses but runs into a back elbow. Hank staggers, but he still arm-drags Xyon! And again! Fans fire up for Hank as he whips corner to corner. Xyon reverses but Hank comes back, only for Xyon to SPINEBUSTER! Fans boo while Xyon snarls and throws down knees at Hank against the ropes. Xyon lets off as the ref counts, to go out and CLUB Hank back into the ring. Xyon snarls, slides back in and he drags Hank up to bend him back against ropes. Xyon UPPERCUTS, then back suplexes! Cover, TWO!

Xyon clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Hank down. Hank endures, fights up and fans rally. Hank throws body shots, but Xyon CLUBS him! Xyon HEADBUTTS Hank, whips him to a corner, but Hank comes back to LARIAT! Fans fire up as the shirt comes off! Hank runs in to THESZ PRESS! Hank rains down fast hands and fans are loving it! Hank then bumps Xyon off buckles, bumps him off more buckles, and then more! Hank runs in to SPLASH! Xyon staggers, Hank runs in again, but Xyon dodges! Xyon KICKS the leg, runs and RUNS IT STRAIGHT! Cover, Xyon wins!

Winner: Xyon Quinn, by pinfall

Well, Hank won’t have a historic winning streak to start, but Xyon doesn’t look done with him! Xyon aims from the corner, wanting to hit Hank again. But here comes QUINCY! Fans rally for the Super Diva as he backs Xyon down. Quincy helps Hank up and they fist bump. Quincy even gives Hank an encouraging smack on the butt! Y’know, it’s a sports thing. Quincy dances and Hank isn’t sure what to make of it, but does Hank at least have a friend watching his back?

 

Cameron Grimes finds little red hoodie kid.

He doesn’t know who this person is, but they don’t need to be dealing with Joe Gacy. All Gacy does is talk out both sides of his mouth! “Listen, listen. The guy’s a hypocrite. And it’s already bad enough the guy has The Dyad-” BOOT! Rip Fowler kicks Grimes down, then he and Jagger Reed mug Grimes! They RAM Grimes into a trunk, then Gacy hands Jagger a trash can. “Let it out.” Jagger unleashes on Grimes with the can! Gacy smiles and takes the can for himself to SMACK Grimes on the back! The Schism smiles as they look to red hoodie kid. “Job well done! Welcome to the Schism’s tree.” They hug it out, but just who is this in the hood?

 

Briggs & Jensen find the Brawling Brutes backstage.

The good ol’ boys want Dunne to take it easy, they’re just here to wish them good luck tonight. And they also want to let the Brutes know that once they beat Pretty Deadly and become the NEW NXT Tag Team Champions, Briggs & Jensen want the first shot. Oh, is that right? But then Malik Blade & Edris Enofe walk in, and they say they know the Brutes are gonna destroy Pretty Deadly. Ridge takes a guess and figures these two want the first shot, too. How’d he know that? Briggs & Jensen tell Malik & Edris to get in line. Now they’re all arguing, and Dunne SMACKS the lockers with a chair.

Ridge tells Briggs & Jensen that if they want a shot at the Brutes, bring that same aggressive style they brought to Gallus. And as for Malik & Edris, they need to get serious for once. Dunne says he’s done talking! it’s fight night! Watch and learn. The Brutes put on banger after banger after banger! The other teams agree, that is true. But then they argue with each other about who really gets the next shot. But will it all be for naught if the Brutes fail to dethrone Pretty Deadly?

 

Backstage interview with Bron Breakker.

Kelly asks the NXT Champion his thoughts on what both Ilja Dragunov and JD McDonagh have said about their Triple Threat. Bron says they can watch as much film as they want, train as hard as they want, but Halloween Havoc’s gonna be a dog fight. But then in walks Javier Bernal. He introduces himself as “Big Body Javi” and says he’s a future NXT Champion. Bron’s already proven he can beat JD, and he probably could take Dragunov 1v1. But why make it a Triple Threat, the same kind of match that cost him at Roadblock? Javi remembers, he’s got the brain of an elephant. Bron has all the tools in the world, except up there.

But hey, not everyone can be Big Body Javi. Bron says, “Big Body Javi? Yeah, I can tell. Look, my temper got me into the first Triple Threat match, my pride got me into this one. And your stupidity is gonna make me request a match against you for next week!” Javi just realized he put his foot in his mouth. Will he end up an appetizer for the Big Booty Nephew before the feast that is Halloween Havoc?

 

NXT Tag Team Championships: Pretty Deadly VS The Brawling Brutes!

Kit Wilson & Elton Prince thought they were clear and free to be the forever champions of NXT, but then the Bruiserweight and Yorkshire Grit returned to the brand! Will the “commonwealth” soon have new nobles? Or will their lordships survive this Tuesday Night Fight?

NXT returns and Pretty Deadly makes their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if Ridge & Dunne can bring these belts to SmackDown!

The teams sort out and Ridge starts with Elton. They circle, tie up, and Elton headlocks. Ridge powers up and out then hip tosses Elton hard! Fans fire up while Elton scrambles to ropes. Elton BOOTS Ridge, tags Kit, but Kit runs into a hip toss, too! Ridge taunts Kit, but Kit JAWBREAKERS! Kit CLUBS Ridge, suplexes, but Ridge blocks! Ridge suplexes and SLAMS Kit down! Tag to Dunne and Ridge butterfly suplexes Kit, for the SHOTGUN DROPKICK! Dunne keeps Kit from Elton, hammerlocks one arm and pulls the other. Fans cheer as Dunne bends Kit’s fingers! And then bends some more! Dunne then goes after the other arm, isolates it, and STOMPS!

Kit clutches the elbow and fans rally up. Dunne drags Kit up, wrenches the bad arm, but Elton jumps in, to tag Kit? The ref says that doesn’t count by a long shot, but it is all a distraction tactic so Kit can throw Dunne by his hair! Now Kit tags Elton legally, and Elton stomps away on Dunne. Fans boo but Elton covers, TWO! Elton keeps an eye on Ridge and he headlocks Dunne. Dunne powers out, hurdles and drops to then CLOBBER Elton! Tag to Ridge, Ridge gets Kit and together, the Brutes give him BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN! Dunne runs to DECK Kit with the tenth! Fans fire up as Pretty Deadly flounders and NXT goes picture in picture.

Dunne and Ridge fall back while Pretty Deadly regroups. Elton is wary as he slides in, and he ties up with Ridge. Ridge RAMS Elton into a corner, EuroUppers him over an dover, then wrenches to whip corner to corner hard! Elton hits buckles then the mat, and Ridge storms over. Elton throws hands, CHOPS, and uppercuts! Elton whips, Ridge reverses and CLOBBERS him! Ridge drags Elton up, tags Dunne, and Dunne goes up while Ridge wrenches an arm. Dunne gives DOUBLE KNEES to the arm! Dunne then wrenches the arm, wrangles Elton to the mat, and he drops DOUBLE KNEES on the elbow! Dunne then runs in at the corner, but Elton dodges!

Elton tags Kit, They double whip Dunne into the adjacent corner! Then they get Dunne up in a Tree of Woe for Elton to BOOT Dunne down! Kit taunts Ridge, drags Dunne up, and wrenches for an ELBOW BREAKER! Kit wrangles Dunne now, and he drops knees, only to miss the arm! Kit clutches his leg, but he still BOOTS Dunne down! Kit rains down fists, smothers Dunne to a cover, TWO as Dunne bridges up! Kit wraps on a chinlock and makes it a cobra clutch as NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally as Dunne endures, and Dunne reaches up. Dunne gets Kit’s nose! The ref reprimands, but Kit lets go and Dunne CHOPS him!

Dunne CHOPS Elton, ROCKS Kit, ELBOWS Elton, but Kit RAMS Dunne! Tag to Elton, he runs in to UPPERCUT! Dunne flops down and Elton looms over him. Fans rally up but Elton stands on Dunne’s head and pulls the arm! The ref counts, Elton lets off, and Elton slaps Dunne around. Elton messes with Dunne’s hair, but Dunne stands up to ROCK Elton! Elton ROCKS Dunne but Dunne ROCKS Elton! The forearms keep going, Dunne fires off haymakers and CHOPS! Dunne CHOPS Elton off his feet! Dunne reaches for Ridge but Elton whips him away, so Dunne uses that momentum to DECK Kit! Elton runs in but Dunne dodges, hot tag to Ridge!

Ridge the Fridge runs and rallies on Elton with big shoulders! Ridge ducks ‘n’ dodges to FLYING SHOULDER! Fans fire up and Elton flounders. Ridge runs in to SPLASH Elton! Kit runs in, but gets a scoop and POWERSLAM for it! Elton swings but his arms get caught, for a HEADBUTT! Ridge then scoops Elton to POWERSLAM him on Kit! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Ridge and he drags Elton up. Ridge reels Elton in but Elton drops to KANGAROO KICK! Elton UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again! Elton runs but Ridge CLOBBERS him back! Fans are thunderous while both men are down!

Ridge and Elton crawl for their corners, kicking at each other. Hot tag to Kit, and he jumps on Ridge! Ridge carries Kit like a backpack but he’s fading in the sleeper hold. But then Ridge gets a second wind and he stomps his way to Dunne for the tag! Dunne goes up and he SUPER SUNSET BOMBS! Cover, TWO!! Kit survives but Dunne snarls. Fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” as Dunne grabs the arms. Dunne gives Kit DRAGON STOMPS! Then Dunne DOUBLE WRISTLOCKS the arm! Kit endures, reaches out, but Elton grabs his hand. Dunne lets Kit go to STOMP Elton! And then ASAI MOONSAULT! Fans fire up and Dunne goes back for Kit, SNAP GERMAN!

Dunne dodges Elton, SNAP GERMAN! Fans fire up again as Dunne runs at Kit to GAMANGIRI! Then he runs at Elton, but Elton dodge the knee. Elton runs to Kit, Kit goes up and over and gets the boost, FLYING CODE BREAKER! Cover, but Ridge breaks it! Kit DROPKICKS Ridge for it, and then tags Elton. Pretty Deadly aim at Dunne, DOUBLE SHOTEI! But Ridge returns, only to get DOUBLE BOOTS! Dunne ENZIGURIS Elton, but Kit yoyos to LARIAT Dunne! Cover, TWO!! Dunne survives and Kit is shocked! Fans are loving it, though, and are giving a standing ovation! But Pretty Deadly sets up, SPILT- Ridge CLOBBERS Elton!

Dunne gets an ARMBAR on Kit!! Elton DECKS Ridge but is also down! Dunne has the arm, but Elton pushes things over to a cover! TWO!!! Dunne is up, he blocks the haymaker and bends the fingers, to SNAP them!! And then the pump handle, BITTER END!! Cover, but Elton helps Kit with the ROPEBREAK! Fans boo but the ref can’t reprimand what he didn’t see. Ridge saw it, though, and he’s pissed! He chases Elton into the ring, Dunne is there, too! Elton swings at the ref! The ref dodges the haymaker, though, and Dunne ROCKS Elton! Ridge POUNCES Elton out of the ring! Then Dunne GAMANGIRIS Kit!

Tag to Ridge, the Brutes bring Kit around, scoop, ROUNDHOUSE NORTHERN GRIT!! Cover, but wait, IMPERIUM is here?! Giovanni Vinci gets on the apron but Ridge DECKS him! Dunne spots Ludwig Kaiser, goes outside and MULE KICKS him! But then Elton CLOBBERS Dunne from behind! Kit CHOP BLOCKS Ridge, tags Elton, and Pretty Deadly sets up! SPILT MILK!! Cover, Pretty Deadly wins!

Winners: Pretty Deadly, by pinfall (still NXT Tag Team Champions)

Another screw job, just like with the Undisputed WWE Tag Team Championships! But Imperium goes after the Brutes again, they all brawl to the back, allowing Pretty Deadly to celebrate surviving the night! But wait! Malik Blade & Edris Enofe storm out, followed by Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen! Pretty Deadly think they cleared everyone out but are proven dead wrong! Will they have to face all four men to prove they’re the best?


My Thoughts:

Great episode for NXT to introduce all the new aspects of this “White ‘n’ Gold” era. New commentators and interviewers (partially because Vic Joseph & McKenzie Mitchell are on their honeymoon) and the new look to fit the new logo, all good stuff. And a lot of great build towards Halloween Havoc, with that being NXT’s return to Saturday streaming events a la TakeOvers. Great vignette promos from Dragunov and JD, and a great interview promo from Bron where he actually used his “shoot voice,” not his “Steiner” voice. Javier Bernal stepping in it was also great, and he’ll be a good tune-up for Bron next week. Still personally hoping Dragunov wins, but I think Bron is finally finding himself as a character.

Great stuff for the North American Championship story. Melo has a great match with Oro but of course Trick helps Melo win, and we get a great transition right into Chase VS Wagner. Ironically, Chase U being ringside is what costs Chase and Wagner is going to bring some beef to the ladder match. That always seems rather standard for a multi-man ladder match like this, and Wagner is a natural pick. Sanga and Frazer have a good promo together, and I could’ve sworn Frazer VS Axiom was this week. But Veer showing up here, that’s great. He wasn’t really working out on Raw anymore, he was just another mean monster like Omos, so resetting his personality in NXT and reuniting with Sanga is great stuff.

Lash has a good promo going into her match with Wendy Choo, and it was a good match, and it was a bit of a surprise that Wendy won. It was also a surprise no Heel attacked her after. Maybe Lash will lash back at Wendy next week to set up a rematch for later. Then I loved that they decided to change things up from the Six Woman Tag. Alba “abducting” Mandy was a hilarious and aggressive way to push things to a women’s title match at Halloween Havoc, and we got a great #1 contenders match from Gigi & Jacy VS Lyons & Stark. KC Squared has a good promo to put their run together into perspective, but I have mixed feelings on Lyons & Stark winning.

I suppose it works that they’re proving people wrong by becoming a strong team, but WWE has done a lot of “the makeshift team beats the established team” these last few years. I’m sure Halloween Havoc’s title match will be awesome, but I would hope for KC Squared’s sake, they win in the end to reestablish that a long term team beats a short term team in the end. As for Alba and Mandy, I hope this is the moment Mandy loses to bring things full circle. She won the title at Halloween Havoc last year, she’ll basically get the one-year reign accolade and then she, Gigi & Jacy can be called up as SmackDown’s trio to counter Damage Control as Raw’s trio.

The inaugural Grayson Waller Effect talk show segment was a bit awkward, but I feel like they ironed out the problems and made this second one work. For one, Roxanne is finally showing some sass to match Cora’s, and I like that Waller kept getting annoyed by them. We got a good look at Spin the Wheel for this year, and I totally knew Roxie VS Cora II was going to allow weapons like Cora’s favorite little kendo stick. Cora won the first time so I think Roxie wins this one, and brutally. Also, great appearance from Apollo, of course Waller ends up with the “bloody” eyes from the prediction, and I would actually love if the blow-off for this is Eye for an Eye, because it just makes sense.

Good stuff from Hank, Quincy and Xyon. Xyon VS Quincy could make for a good match, but also maybe Xyon finds a tag partner to take on Quincy and Hank together. At this point, maybe it’s Duke since he likes picking fights. Duke gets SQUASHED by Julius, that’s good momentum for Julius. And while the promos weren’t the sharpest, Julius, Brutus and Damon Kemp set up quite the angle for Halloween Havoc. That Ambulance Match is going to be a lot of fun, but I don’t see the Creeds being split up like this. Plus, Kemp needs some comeuppance for what he’s done, this could be that moment.

There’s a lot of intrigue in this red hoodie kid and their connection to The Schism. I go with “they/them” because it’s hard to say who is under there. This could be Schism’s North American Championship member, or it could be their first female superstar recruit, it probably depends on what NXT is feeling. But “Red” setting up Grimes was good stuff, and thinking about it, Grimes confronting Red and perhaps revealing them could set up the twist that it IS a female superstar so Grimes can’t go after them. Maybe Grimes gets Chase U as an ally instead of Edris & Malik now that it looks like it could be 4v4.

And of course, great stuff for the NXT Tag Division. Pretty Deadly was so goofy in their “lordly” costumes, the Brutes showing up was a great surprise, and a great main event match out of them. Great interactions from the good ol’ boys, Malik & Edris and the Brutes that of course foreshadow the coming tag title match. Imperium screwing the Brutes over should’ve been expected, this just adds heat for their SmackDown/Extreme Rules stuff. Pretty Deadly VS Briggs & Jensen VS Malik & Edris is going to be great, would love if they decided to Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal for this match, too. Imagine a Triple Threat Tag Trick or Street Fight so they can all just go nuts.

My Score: 8.8/10

Good line-up here. I feel like the Trustbusters are gonna sweep the night because they’ll all be supporting each other with Heel tactics. Honestly, I feel Blake Christian and AR Fox would each win their match-ups if they didn’t have to worry about outside distractions. Good to see the former Bear Country, now Iron Savages, Boulder & Bronson, back in action. They’ll definitely get a good return win. And Dante & Sydal VS JD Drake & Anthony Henry is a great tag match, and I would think Dante & Sydal win that.
