HUGE win for Diamond Mine’s young tag team! They’re heading to Vengeance Day and the finals, will they be putting their names on that trophy’s plaque?


Backstage interview with Cora Jade.

After that hard fought match, Cora and Raquel are now a tag team, and they’ll be in the Women’s Dusty Cup in two weeks. Cora is excited to be teaming with Big Mami Cool, and they’re going to make a lot of noise. But then Valentina Feroz & Yulisa Leon say they will be winners. They have a lot to prove. Cora & Raquel have competition. But Raquel counters their Spanish with her Spanish. There can only be one tag team that wins, so Feroz & Leon better be ready. Only Raquel can call Cora that. Wait, what did they say? Well, at least Raquel has Cora’s back. Will they get the win over las Latinas lethal?


Amari Miller & Wendy Choo arrive.

And it seems Amari went with Wendy on that shopping spree. After all, Wendy has Mr. Stratton’s credit card. That was fun and all, but the card got cancelled partway. Wendy dumps it. But will Tiffany get revenge for Daddy here tonight?

Tiffany Stratton VS Wendy Choo!

The bell rings and Tiffany wants the card back! Wendy threw it away, though… Tiffany says she could charge her with theft! Wendy wrenches Tiffany’s arm to a wristlock! Tiffany goes up the ropes, handsprings and arm-drags Wendy away, but Wendy just lounges! Tiffany runs in but into a drop toehold! And then a sleepy headlock!

Tiffany then slingshots to dropkick Wendy down! And a basement dropkick to add on! Tiffany goes up for a CORKSCREW VADER BOMB! Cover, Tiffany wins!

Winner: Tiffany Stratton, by pinfall

She may be a brat, but she’s got skills. Will Tiffany make Daddy proud one way or another?


NXT shares Draco Anthony’s comments from last week.

A loss to Andre Chase is not how he expected his NXT in-ring debut to go. But then in walks Joe Gacy & Harland. Mr. Anthony shouldn’t be disappointed, he gave it his all out there. Keep your chin up, and just remember that you don’t have to do this alone. “Draco, I’m here to listen. Listen to not just your actions, but your words. Have a great night.” Wil


Backstage interview with Pete Dunne.

The Bruiserweight is making his return to action against Draco Anthony, but he has a Steel Cage match with Tony D’Angelo next week for Vengeance Day. Dunne says if there’s one thing we all know about Tony, it’s that he talks way too much. But it’s funny. Since Tony lost to Grimes, he’s gone quiet. Not even a post on social media. Well, it must be hard to tweet after getting his fingers smashed. Dunne promises Tony to finish this where it started: inside that steel cage! But then Draco walks over. Tony may not respect Dunne, but Draco does. It’ll be an honor to share the ring with him tonight. Whatever, mate. Dunne will still snap those fingers. Good luck.


Pete Dunne VS Draco Anthony!

Dunne keeps that cricket bat in hand as a reminder of what he’s willing to do! Will he make an example out of Draco? Or can the newest star redeem himself here tonight?

NXT goes picture in picture for the entrances, but the bell still rings. They tie up, go around, and Dunne wrenches to wristlock. Draco tries to fight free but Dunne wrenches him again. Draco spins, wrenches, and has the wristlock back. Draco spins around to shift the grip but Dunne slips through to get the armlock on Draco. Dunne drags Draco down, digs his knee into the shoulder, and he bends the arm from elbow to wrist! Dunne traps the arm in a hammerlock, steps over the other arm, and even chinbars Draco into the recliner cover. TWO, and Draco is free. The two reset, tie up with knuckle locks, and Dunne drops to trip Draco up.

Draco kicks Dunne away and the two reset again. They tie up collar ‘n’ elbow, Draco gets around to waistlock and headlock takeover. Dunne keeps his shoulders up, NXT returns to single picture, and we see Gacy & Harland watching from the perch. Draco grinds the headlock, Dunne fights up and fans rally. Dunne headlocks back, Draco powers up and out, then dodges Dunne to run Dunne over! Draco gets Dunne up in a facelock, suplexes, but Dunne throws knees. Draco keeps Dunne up for the SLAM! Fans rally and duel, but Draco stands on Dunne’s hands! Draco shrugs a la Dunne, but Dunne avoids the stomps!

Dunne kicks Draco down, and shows Draco how the STOMPS are done! Then BUZZSAW! Fans fire up as Dunne circles around Draco. Dunne hammerlocks the arm again, stands on Draco’s head and bends those fingers back! Draco endures, Dunne STOMPS his head! Fans chant, “Break His Fingers!” Dunne drags Draco up, wrenches, and bends the fingers more. Draco tries to fight free but Dunne isolates the arm! Dunne STOMPS the hammerlock! Draco gets to ropes, Dunne is on him again. Dunne wrenches, Draco fires forearms! Dunne DECKS Draco in return! Dunne then shrugs and clamps onto the arm again.

Dunne pulls the arm way back, twists the wrist, and even pulls on Draco’s ear. Fans rally and duel, Draco fights up, but Dunne CHOPS! Draco glares at Dunne so Dunne SLAPS and CHOPS him over and over! Draco still gets to his feet, and he LARIATS Dunne down! Fans fire up, Dunne goes to a corner, and Draco runs in to clothesline! Draco keeps moving, back elbow! Draco reels Dunne in, back suplex FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Dunne is still in this and Draco looks at Gacy & Harland. Gacy smiles, Draco runs in at Dunne in the corner. Dunne dodges the back elbow to GAMANGIRI! Draco goes down, Dunne drops KNEES On the arm!

Dunne gets Draco up, has the double wristlock, but Draco moves around. Draco whips Dunne away, gets under, BACK DROP! Dunne bails out, Draco pursues, but Dunne GAMANGIRIS him back in! But here comes Tony D’Angelo with a crowbar! Dunne dodges and POSTS Tony! Dunne DECKS Tony, gets in the ring and SNAP GERMANS Draco! Dunne pump handles for the BITTER END! Cover, Dunne wins!

Winner: Pete Dunne, by pinfall

Not even a distraction can stop the Bruiserweight! But Tony gets Dunne at the ropes with a sleeper! But Dunne pries free, and SNAPS Tony’s fingers! Dunne goes out of the ring to bring out trash can, lid and whatever else he can find! Dunne puts all of that in the ring, Tony doesn’t get it! Dunne even gets a TOOLBOX! Dunne spills the contents out in the ring then tells Tony, “You’re gonna need more than a crowbar at Vengeance Day! So how ’bout we take everything we can find, we attach it to that cage, and we have ourselves a WEAPONIZED Steel Cage match?!” Dunne just raised the stakes on Tony D, and he accepts! Will the Bruiserweight break the wise guy once and for all?


Zoey Stark sits with Io Shirai.

Stark says they need to have a serious conversation about the Women’s Dusty Cup. Raquel and Cora are a mismatched team, but guess what? So are Shirai & Stark. Now, Kacy & Kayden have amazing chemistry, Yulisa & Valentina are on the rise- So then why is Stark telling Shirai about this? Because Stark knows her. No she doesn’t! But Stark is sure Shirai wants those NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships, that they lost without being pinned. Okay, that’s true. Stark’s knee is keeping her out, but they need to find someone who is hard hitting, willing to sacrifice, and is just as crazy as Shirai.

Shirai says that’s fair. She’s in. Awesome! And Shirai already knows who to ask. Really? Will she say who it is? Nope. C’mon! It was Stark’s idea, though! Will Shirai get a new partner just as evil and genius as she is?


Wendy Choo finds Dakota Kai going through her shopping spree haul!

Dakota says, “You might have a new wardrobe, but uh, all these clothes won’t but you victories in the ring.” What is Dakota’s problem? And did she take anything for her own?


LA Knight VS Sanga w/ Grayson Waller!

The Million Dollar Megastar wants after the 21st Century Success Story so bad, he’s going to take on Waller’s towering insurance policy head on! Will Sanga deny Knight his shot at Waller? Or will Waller have no choice but to face the consequences of his actions, YEAH?

NXT returns and Sanga makes his entrance, Waller swaggering around behind him. The fans boo, Sanga angrily shouts, “NAMASTE!” and the bell rings. Knight talks trash to Sanga while Waller talks trash to Knight, Knight dodges the haymaker to give haymakers, but Sanga blocks the whip to reverse it! Knight dodges in the corner, fires off hands, then runs, to ROCK Sanga with a forearm! Knight runs to ROCK Sanga again, then dropkicks! Sanga stays up to TOSS Knight into the corner for knees and stomps! Waller is the only one cheering as Sanga CLUBS Knight down. Sanga gets Knight up to DECK him!

Knight bails out, Waller talks more trash, and Sanga pursues Knight around the way. Sanga scoops Knight, but Knight slips out and POSTS Sanga! Waller is panicking as Knight gets in the ring. Sanga gets in, Knight hammers away on him! Knight fires kicks and haymakers, then runs, ducks the boot, and kicks, only for Sanga to TOSS him off the cravat! Sanga drops a BIG elbow, then covers. TWO and Knight is still in this. Sanga looms over Knight, drags him up, and RAMS him into a corner. Sanga runs in, into a knee! Knight throws clothesline after clothesline but Sanga stays up. Knight LEAPS but Sanga only wobbles!

Knight hurries to a corner and Waller shouts. Knight springboards to missile dropkick Sanga down! Cover, TWO and Knight goes flying! Waller takes a buckle pad off while the ref is busy with Knight. The ref sees Waller, Sanga choke grips Knight! Knight rakes eyes! Knight runs Waller off, then sends Sanga into bare buckle! JUMPING NECKBREAKER! Cover, Knight wins!

Winner: LA Knight

Waller’s sneaky tactics cost his guy! Waller gets in and fires off hands with Knight! Knight gets the edge and CLOBBERS Waller! Kick and B F T!! Knight gets away before Sanga gets back up, but will Waller keep his word and remove the restraining order?


Backstage interview with Duke Hudson.

A man who wants revenge on Duke is one Dante Chen. Duke expected Dante to call him out but uh, haven’t seen him anywhere. Turns out saying it and doing it is completely different. The Singaporean Warrior isn’t as tough as he thinks it is. Duke will say that Dante’s not here for a reason. There’s your scoop. And Duke wishes Indi & Persia some luck in their tag title match next week. That wink surely means something, but will Indi keep Persia from responding?


NXT returns with the NXT Championship Summit.

Wade Barrett is in the ring, already joined by Legado del Fantasma, with Santos Escobar sitting at the table. Wade introduces Santos as the #1 contender to the NXT Championship, and fans are torn between cheers and jeers. Now, welcome his opponent for next week at Vengeance Day, THE NXT Champion, Bron Breakker! Bron makes his way out, title on his shoulder and fans barking in support. Bron takes his seat at the table and Wade thanks them for their time. Wade directs the first question to the champion, Bron. What makes him so sure that next week, Bron will walk out still NXT Champion?

Bron says, “Look, I’ll keep this short and sweet, alright?” He already said he respects Escobar, but he’ll beat Escobar and there’s not a damn thing Escobar can do about it! Fans cheer that on. Bron says they both know how contract signing type deals go, so let’s just flip this table and start fighting right now! Escobar laughs and says he expects nothing less from “smoeone so new, so young, but so naive.” When Escobar says things happen on his time, what he really means is that he’s pulling all the strings, and has everything under control. Bron doesn’t even realize it! So while people like Paul Heyman are calling Bron the future, Escobar is already planning ways to end his career before it starts.

Oh, so Escobar wants to do something? Wait, is that Dolph Ziggler making his way out here?! What is the Show-Off doing in NXT?! No one can believe it, least of all Escobar and Bron! Ziggler takes Wade’s place at the table as fans chant his name. “What a night! NXT on SyFy, what a moment! The NXT Champion and the challenger, ready to throw down right here. What a moment. Until I showed up.” Breakker, congrats. He knows how to use Twitter, he owns a smart phone, Ziggler’s a big fan. Chase the clouds, Ziggler will hang on to his money and titles. Now, it seems Ziggler works Tuesdays now. Paid, thanks to Johnny Ace.

But apparently… Time is money and Ziggler has a plane to catch, so he has one thing to say to Bron. “Who the hell are you?” Who is Bron? He’s the NXT Champion, the reason Ziggler’s even down here! Bron will handle Ziggler after he handles Escobar. Wow, that is an amateur hour move. That’s something Ziggler would do, but Bron’s not him. Ziggler could list his accolades and it’d take up the rest of the show. But Intercontinental Champion, United States Champion, Mr. Money in the Bank, Sole Survivor, World Heavyweight Champion. Ziggler is aware that every hundred matches or so, 99 don’t go his way. But we all know what Ziggler can do any day of the week.

Fans chant “Steal The Show!” and Ziggler says, “All those accolades I have, and yet… One title I do not. The NXT Championship.” Fans want a “Triple Threat!” but Ziggler says it doesn’t matter what the fans say. Ziggler doesn’t have to be better than Bron, which he is, or even smarter, which he is. He just has to be in Bron’s head and- TOMMASO CIAMPA makes his way out! “Damn, man. Dolph Ziggler in an NXT ring! Ain’t that something?” Fans are hoping for a Fatal 4 Way as Ciampa copies Ziggler saying, “What a moment.” But Ciampa will be honest here. Ziggler as NXT Champion is a hard pass from Ciampa.

Ciampa pulls up a chair right next to Ziggler, and says, “Listen, kid. Can I call you ‘kid?’ I’ll call you ‘kid.’ I love your spirit, but if you’re gonna walk into my home-” Ciampa stops this right here, asking what the hell is going on! First, Ciampa and Bron play frenemies and now Ciampa wants the title again? And then Ziggler, what is he even doing here? He doesn’t go here! He’s upset over some mean tweets? Now this is what’s happening: once Escobar becomes the NEW NXT Champion, he’ll handle Ziggler, and he’ll handle Ciampa. Ciampa tells homeboy that if he interrupts again, he ain’t making it to Vengeance Day, comprende?!

And as for Bron, Ciampa says once he’s dealt with all this, Ciampa’s next in line. Unless Mr. Ziggler has a problem. Ziggler says Ciampa calls NXT his home. But the same few hundred Florida people come out and clap like seals week in and week out, year after year, no matter what. And yet Ciampa thinks this is his home? When does it end? When does the helmet and the elbow pad come off? Ciampa BOOTS Ziggler down! Then chases him out of the ring to throw hands! They brawl to the ramp, Mendoza, Wilde & Escobar jump Bron! Legado mugs Bron, Ciampa fights Ziggler all the way to the back!

Mendoza & Wilde get Born up, but he fights them off, all while Escobar is gloating! Escobar sees he’s lost his pawns again, and fans are barking! Bron kicks Escobar, reels him in, but Legado return to save Escobar! DOUBLE BUZZSAW! They get Bron back up, DOUBLE SPINEBUSTER through the table! Bron is down, and Escobar says, “Everything happens on my time. And this? This is my time! See you next week, young champion.” The message was sent, but it had to be done by Escobar’s henchmen. Will Escobar be able to win that title when he has to do it himself?


Kay Lee Ray speaks.

“Mandy, you could’ve saved yourself a lot of trouble just giving me the match when I asked. But now I’m gonna make you suffer. Don’t worry, this’ll all be finished when I take my NXT Women’s Championship. I’ll see you in a little bit.” Is the Scary Queen of Scots only going to get scarier tonight?


Sanga and Waller head out.

Waller tells NXT Media that they saw what happened. Knight showed his true colors! He got lucky, but he’s a loser because he broke the restraining order. And Vengeance Day is fitting, because Waller is gonna get his vengeance. So, is that a match? NO! Knight’s getting arrested! In front of the entire world. He’s going to jail, YEAH! Karma is a BITCH.


Sarray VS Dakota Kai!

After being insulted and threatened by #CobraKai, the Warrior of the Sun is going to use all her power to put Dakota in her place! Will Sarray shine bright against Dakota’s darkness? Or will the sun set already on Sarray’s return?

NXT goes picture in picture for the entrances and the bell rings. Sarray offers a handshake, Dakota talks to herself, and the two approach. Dakota slaps the handshake away, so the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Dakota pulls hair to put Sarray in a corner. The ref counts, Dakota lets off at 4, but she tucked Sarray’s hair into buckles! Sarray gets free, they circle again, and they tie up. Sarray wrenches an arm to a wristlock, keeps Dakota from ropes, but Dakota rolls and handsprings up to wrench back. Sarray rolls, wrenches, hammerlocks, but Dakota spins around to get behind Sarray. Dakota bumps Sarray off buckles then digs her boots in.

Dakota lets off as the ref counts to snapmare Sarray down. Dakota uses a headscissor necklock to bring Sarray down, and even gets an arm for an inverted triangle hold! Sarray bridges back to make it a cover, TWO! Dakota BOOTS Sarray down, covers, Sarray goes Matrix to slip out! Dakota throws Sarray down as NXT returns to single picture. Things speed up, Sarray rolls Dakota up, TWO! Into a HALF CRAB! Dakota crawls to get the ropebreak! Sarray KNEES Dakota down, then runs the ropes. Dakota dodges the dropkick to BOOT Sarray down! Dakota bumps Sarray off buckles, goes side to side, BOOT WASH!

Dakota keeps going, another BOOT WASH! Dakota goes again, a third BOOT WASH! Dakota drags Sarray back, covers, TWO! Dakota laughs as Sarray stays in this. Fans rally up for Sarray but Dakota drags her up. Dakota BOOTS Sarray again, but Sarray fires up! Dakota BOOTS Sarray again, but Sarray gets back up. Sarray ROCKS Dakota with forearm after forearm! Sarray whips, Dakota reverses but Sarray wheelbarrows to a victory roll, DOUBLE STOMPS! Fans fire up as Sarray goes to a corner and climbs up top. Sarray hits a missile dropkick! Cover, TWO! Sarray grows frustrated and Dakota scrambles away.

Sarray storms after Dakota, but Dakota SCORPION KICKS! Sarray stays up, SCORPION KICK again! Then a dragon sleeper, TWISTING DDT! Cover, TWO! Dakota is growing frustrated and she’s talking to herself again. Sarray drags herself to a corner, Dakota stalks behind her. Fans rally up, Dakota drags Sarray up and whips her to a corner. Sarray goes up and up, sunset flips, TWO! Sarray Oklahoma Rolls! TWO, Dakota has the cradle, TWO! Sarray has the sunset again, TWO! Dakota has a prawn hold, TWO!! Sarray escapes, fans fire up, but Dakota BOOTS Sarray again! Dakota runs Around the World, but Sarray dodges!

Sarray SOBATS Dakota and she’s on the ropes! Sarray runs, SUNRAY DROPKICK! Sarray gets Dakota up, SUN PLEX! Cover, Sarray wins!

Winner: Sarray, by pinfall

Dakota’s doom and gloom couldn’t stop Sarray! Will the Warrior of the Sun shine brighter than ever before after this big win?


Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams hang out at the Cut Wiz barber shop.

Trick wants their boy, Josh, to fix up Melo’s mustache. He thinks he has a date with OllieJayy this week. C’mon, man, you know this is date number three. Oh? Well alright. But is Melo ready to defend his title? C’mon, Josh. Cameron Grimes stepped up, he’s gonna get stepped on. Trick isn’t so sure. He’s been checking Twitter, and people think Grimes stands a chance. What? No way! Not “To the Moon” guy. The one guy in the corner thinks Grimes has a chance. Who’s friend is this? Trick thought he was with Melo. But Melo’s going to check Grimes’ wiki. Two years in NXT, and what has he done? No accolades!

Richest man in NXT? His value gonna shot getting hit with the Melo Shot. Melo is Breakout Tournament winner. Ch’yeah! Melo is North American Champion! Ch’yeah! Cruiserweight Unifier! Ch’yeah! And on top of all that, his team won WarGames! YES, SIR! They did that, but Trick says this rise has been meteoric. Grimes has won matches, but none like this. Grimes is talented in the past. Melo is a top talent. No one was talking about Grimes before this. You do business with the A Champ, you become relevant. That’s just a fact: Melo does numbers. And at Vengeance Day, that’s all it is, and that’s all it’s gonna be! Ready for the haircut? Ch’yeah!

Will Melo be looking good with a title win on Vengeance Day? Or is the North American title finally going to the moon?


Indi Hartwell talks with someone on the phone.

She says she misses them more. Tonight, when she gest home, bubble bath together. Laters. Persia walks in and Indi welcomes her as future NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion. Persia asks who that was on the phone. Was it Duke? No! It was Dexter, duh. Well, Duke wished Indi good luck but not Persia. Indi knew he was trouble. Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne walk in, saying that going into the biggest match of their career next week and they’re having a toxic meltdown. Stop trying to mess with them. Indi & Persia are best friends. They’ve won against Toxic Attraction before, they’ll win again.

Gigi & Jacy roll their eyes, but Persia says they can go console Mandy after she’s lost her match, same as she will for them. Haha, good one. But here’s a better one: When Indi & Persia lose, who’s gonna console Indi? Dexter or Duke? Gigi has a photo of them in the past! Best friends don’t tell each other everything, do they? Persia DECKS Gigi and a brawl is on! Security and refs rush in to stop this, but it’s only a matter of time! Will Indi & Persia get the gold? Or will this weird love rectangle cause dysfunction between them?


NXT hears from Nikkita Lyons.

“You hear the phrase all the time, ‘Jack of all trades but a master of none.'” That doesn’t apply to her. She can sing and kick ass. Boxing, martial arts, nun chucks, and of course, wrestling. Life on the road made her grow up quick. She had to learn how to defend herself. Eventually, she was the one picking fights cuz she knew she could finish them. You could look at her and make assumptions, but you come at her with weak ass shit, watch out for this Lyons’ roar. Will Nikkita Lyons rock NXT when she arrives?


Brooks Jensen talks with Josh Briggs.

Brooks isn’t sure he can do this. Briggs tells him to rip the bandage off and ask Kayden out. She’s right over there. Brooks almost chickens out but Briggs makes him move. Brooks says hey, Kayden gives him a hug. Brooks asks them if they could all hang out for Valentine’s Day. Yeah, they’re always such fun. Maybe they can do something? More the merrier. See you then! Text them the details later. The ladies leave and Briggs asks Brooks what happened! He doesn’t know! He, she, we, it all just felt the same! But wait. Briggs can take Kacy somewhere, Brooks gets alone time with Kayden. The perfect plan! Here, here’s some money.

Uh, this is just $8, and kinda wet… Movies are like $20 apiece now. Briggs gives Brooks a push and Brooks says he’s not made of money. Can he at least figure out how to talk to Kayden? Or will he crash ‘n’ burn worse than ever?


2022 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Semifinal: MSK VS Malik Blade & Edris Enofe!

This is the moment of truth! Wes Lee & Nash Carter want to repeat not just as finalists but as Dusty Cup winners! However, their opponents have been busting brackets every round! Will Malik & Edris make sure no one ever overlooks them again? Or is this where the Cinderella story ends?

The teams sort out, Malik starts against Lee. Fans are fired up for the hometown kid as he circles with Lee. They tie up, Malik powers Lee to a corner. Lee goes up the corner, the ref counts, and Malik lets off. Lee shows punch but Malik asks Edris what to do. Lee leaps, Malik gets under, and Lee gest around to waistlock. Malik resists the lift, standing switches, but Lee pries free to switch back. Lee spins Malik, things speed up again, and Malik shows he can keep up. Lee still gets another waistlock, pushes Malik to the corner, but Malik puts him on the apron. Carter tags in, Lee ENZIGURIS, then holds Malik in for Carter’s BRONCO BUSTER!

NXT hears from Cameron Grimes.

“I know I come from humble beginnings. My time in NXT has been a roller coaster ride. No one has taken more body blows, had to adapt, and has grown more in NXT more than me. But through everything, I came out the other side a self-made man.” The big house, the fancy cars, and let’s not forget all that money. He has everything but what he got in the business for. He’d trade it all away and come back to the trailer park if it meant he’d walk through the front door to see a title on the mantle. Next week is the chance. Melo, everyone knows you’re on the fast track. But there are two ways a career can go in this business.

2022 is still gonna be Grimes’ year. The rocket boosters are ready, the fuel tanks are filled, and the coordinates are placed. Grimes has a one way ticket TO~ THE~ MOON~! Will the Carolina Cash Money Caveman finally achieve liftoff here in NXT?


Dakota Kai mutters to herself backstage.

She needs help, and Wendy Choo finds her. “Not as easy as it looks, is it?” Wendy walks away, but will Dakota’s voices in her head give her ideas of how to get back up?


NXT Women’s Championship: Mandy Rose VS Kay Lee Ray!

Toxic Attraction’s leader may have glossed over some of the details, but it is true that she found a way to win and to keep this title around her waist. But the Scary Queen of Scots set a record for longest reigning women’s champion in the modern era! Will KLR get started on her second Forever Champion Era? Or does Mandy find yet another way to win and keep this title?

As Mandy makes her way to gorilla with Gigi & Jacy, Indi & Persia jump them from behind! Talk about vengeance, Persia & Indi are making sure Mandy doesn’t have her minions ringside! Referees rush back in, they tell Mandy she has to have her match. Mandy doesn’t want to leave her team behind but she has no choice! The entrances are made, as are the introductions, and the belt is raised. We see if Mandy can focus after all that’s happened, or if KLR makes history at her expense!

The bell rings, KLR dodges Mandy to SLAP her! And then CHOP her! And then CHOP and CHOP and snapmare. Mandy gets up but KLR CHOPS her again. KLR hooks the arms but Mandy fights free to SLAP back! Both women are seething, Mandy hits a THESZ PRESS! Mandy fires off fast hands but KLR gets away. Mandy CLUBS KLR, drags her up, but KLR breaks free to CLOBBER Mandy! KLR drags Mandy up, ROCKS her with a forearm, and then again! KLR keeps on Mandy with more forearms, then a TORNADO DDT! Cover, TWO! KLR stalks Mandy to a corner, stomps her, then KLR goes up to the top.

Fans rally and duel, but Mandy bails out. KLR hops down, then builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit near the announce desk! KLR grins and she drags Mandy back up. KLR puts Mandy in, fans love “NXT! NXT!” as KLR covers. TWO, but KLR keeps on Mandy. KLR whips Mandy to a corner, ROCKS her with a forearm, then whips her back in. Mandy dodges this time, blocks a kick and throws KLR back against the buckles! Mandy stomps KLR, dribbles her off the buckles, but lets off as the ref counts 4. Mandy stalks KLR now, throws more forearms and body shots, then whips KLR to ropes. KLR reverses, Mandy gets under and SPINEBUSTERS! High stack, TWO!

Mandy keeps on KLR with body scissors. KLR endures as Mandy squeezes. McKenzie has an update on what happened in the back while Mandy CLUBS KLR over and over. Toxic Attraction, as well as Indi & Persia, were escorted out of the building, neither team will be a factor ringside. KLR bridges back to a cover, TWO and she’s free of the body scissors. KLR DECKS Mandy, but Mandy pops her to a cover! TWO, KLR prawn holds, TWO as Mandy bridges. Mandy spins, backslides, TWO! Mandy KNEES KLR low, reels her in and hits an INVERTED GUT WRENCH! Cover, TWO!

Mandy grows frustrated but fans continue to rally and duel. Mandy stalks KLR to ropes, talks trash then dribbles KLR off the mat! Mandy CLUBS KLR, drags her back up, then hooks her up for a cobra twist. Mandy drives elbows into KLR’s ribs but KLR endures. KLR fights as fans rally and duel. KLR hip tosses free! Mandy runs into back elbows, then misses in the corner. KLR CLOBBERS Mandy, dropkicks her to the corner, then runs in to ROCK her with a forearm! KLR GAMANGIRIS, Mandy flops down! KLR goes back up top, MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! KLR tries again, TWO! KLR gets a KOJI KLUTCH!

Mandy endures, fights up, makes it a cover, TWO! KLR lets Mandy free, but she spins Mandy around and hooks the arms! Gory Especial, but Mandy SUNSET BOMBS! Cover, TWO! Mandy is beside herself, and she drags KLR up by her hair. Mandy reels KLR in, underhooks the arms, but KLR fights! KLR wrenches out, and suplexes for the GOURD BUSTER! KLR waits for Mandy to get up, but Mandy deflects superkick to roll up! TWO!! KLR SUPERKICKS Mandy down! KLR covers, TWO! Mandy is still in this, but KLR goes to a corner. Fans rally up, KLR climbs again, but Jacy and Gigi show up after all!?

Jacy distracts the ref, Gigi shoves KLR down! Mandy runs in, KNEE FROM A ROSE!! Cover, Mandy wins!

Winner: Mandy Rose, by pinfall (still NXT Women’s Champion)

Once again, Mandy wins because someone else did the work! Jacy gets KLR’s bat, threatens the ref into backing off, and then Gigi drags KLR up. Jacy hands the bat to Mandy, Mandy says KLR’s gonna get it now. But here comes Io Shirai! The Evil Genius DECKS Jacy, dodges Mandy and SHOTEIS! FLAPJACK for Gigi! Jacy returns, Shirai blocks the kick to send it into Gigi! SHOTEI for Jacy! 619 for Gigi! Fans fire up, Shirai springboards, missile dropkick to Gigi & Jacy! Mandy returns to attack Shirai, but KLR gets Mandy up, K L R BOMB!!

Toxic Attraction goes into retreat as KLR & Shirai stand tall! Is this the kindred spirit Shirai talked about? Is Toxic Attraction running out of time as champions?

My Thoughts:

A very good episode here, especially as a go-home to Vengeance Day next week. Great Dusty Cup matches here tonight. Creed Brothers VS GYV got the fans fired up for this episode, and I should’ve figured Creed Brothers would win. GYV have really only ever been jobbers to the stars since moving over to NXT prime, and it seems NXT 2.0 is making the Creed Brothers into stars. MSK VS Malik & Edris was also really good, but I did figure MSK would win. Pitting MSK making history against Creed Brothers as rising stars is definitely how they were going to book this, and therefore makes the match hard to call. As a fan, I’m voting for MSK.

Amari Miller sticking to whoever had the credit card was a pretty good character bit, as was Wendy just trashing the card since it got canceled. Tiffany probably should’ve known that, though, cuz who would’ve canceled the card other than Daddy Stratton? Tiffany VS Wendy was a good match, but it was quite the surprise that Tiffany won. I suppose Wendy losing does set up things with Dakota Kai in what I hope is a rivalry, not a dysfunctional team. Dakota and Sarray have a great match, Sarray gets a great win, and Sarray is getting back on that slow burn to the singles title.

Cora, Raquel, Yulisa and Valentina have a good promo segment, though I suppose the punchline of “What’d she call Cora?” is why there were no subtitles. Cuz they have those at the ready for Imperium instantly, so they could have it for this promo here. Gacy & Harland look to be recruiting, which makes sense to me. Not sure if Draco Anthony is the guy, but maybe Draco becomes their next feud. Draco gives Dunne a real good match, but Dunne wins and now gives us NXT’s version of the Ambrose Asylum with Tony D’Angelo. Honestly, a Street Fight or something like that should’ve just been how they hyped this to begin with, but I suppose this is fine.

We got a good vignette from Nikkita Lyons, she seems pretty comfortable already in this character. Duke Hudson is stirring up trouble with Indi & Persia, so that’s a good way of using the story blending to its fullest. Melo & Trick have a good on-location promo, as does Grimes. Their title match is going to be awesome stuff, but I have a feeling Melo wins and we could be seeing Grimes moving up to RawDown at some point. The story of Brooks’ romantic struggles continues, but I don’t know where they’re going with it. I don’t see it being Brooks “getting the girl,” but I don’t like the idea of another guy coming in and swooping Kayden up. That’d mean that guy fights Brooks and it just feels cliché.

Knight VS Sanga was good, and I like that Waller cost Sanga this match with that buckle pad removal. But as I figured, Waller is not giving Knight a match, he’s just doubling down on his retraining order. Knight already feels like a mishmash of The Rock, Hogan and Stone Cold, seems he’s gonna get that Stone Cold treatment of being arrested on TV. That Championship Summit was great stuff, especially considering the surprise appearance of Dolph Ziggler. Fans were eager for more than just 1v1, but Triple Threats and Fatal 4 Ways are too big for just Vengeance Day. Ciampa VS Ziggler is going to be a great match, as will Bron VS Escobar next week.

And of course, all the things Toxic Attraction was up to tonight were pretty well done. Gigi & Jacy have a good promo with Indi & Persia, I like that Indi & Persia did their best to keep Toxic Attraction from helping Mandy. Mandy and KLR have good promos to hype up the main event, and then the main event was really good stuff, even with the overbooked finish. I thought Shirai was going to choose Sarray as her partner, but something makes sense about Shirai & KLR. They’ve been teaming with each other on and off since WarGames, I have a feeling they’re going to take the Women’s Dusty Cup to then go after Gigi & Jacy and those tag titles.

KLR making history as being the first NXT UK Women’s Champion to become NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion would be a great distinction for her, but I still kinda hope she gets that singles title. KLR becoming NXT’s first Women’s Triple Crown would be great for her, as well as for the NXT 2.0 Era. If the 2.0 Era is the one that gives us a stand alone achievement like that, I think it’ll be able to shrug off a lot of the criticisms fans have had for it.

My Score: 8.8/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 6.30.2022

The Go Home to Against All Odds with the main event of Battle of the Futures Redux! TNA vibes and hype in the Asylum!



Against All Odds is tomorrow, and the one thing IMPACT has excelled with are the quick turnaround angles. Plus we also HOPEFULLY get a real finish to the Battle of the Futures 2022 edition. Frankie Kazarian and Chris Sabin have a main event that could definitely be something special.


  • Fatal 4 Way: Steve Maclin vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Chris Bey: Trey wins via Meteora – ***
  • Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw: Gisele wins via Knee Strike – ** ¼
  • Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace: Jordynne wins via Muscle Buster – **
  • IMPACT Tag Team Championship: The Good Brothers (c) w/James Storm vs Vincent & PCO w/ Honor No More: Karl retains via Roll Up – ** ½
  • Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne: Ace wins via The Fold – ** ¾
  • Battle of the Futures Redux: Frankie Kazarian vs Chris Sabin w/Alex Shelley: Sabin wins via Cradle Shock – *****



Fatal 4 Way: Steve Maclin vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Chris Bey

Early on the smaller men gang up on Maclin, which of course is the smart thing to do. Trey and Bey trade a few shots, Laredo tries to interject himself but Maclin comes back in and starts taking over. Wipes out most of the guys then they start trickling in for pinfall saves and each guy chopping at the bigger man. Trey does however go for a John Woo, misses and Tree of Woes himself to set up for Maclin’s Caught in the Crosshairs corner spear.

Action continues to be pretty fluid, Trey takes out Maclin, Bey looks for an Asai Moonsault, but turns it into the 5 Hole Dive that MCMG do when Laredo Kid dives through Bey’s legs. Then Bey hits the Asai Moonsault and Bey brings Laredo into the ring and tries to find a winning angle. Pop Up Cutter from Bey, but Trey saves it. A little back and forth, Trey goes to the top, misses the Meteora, but lands on his feet and manages a Running Meteora for the pinfall victory.

Trey beat Speedball before Slammiversary, so Speedball has some payback in his mind.

Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw

Madison Rayne and Tenille Dashwood are at the commentary desk for this match since Gisele did offer to fill in for an injured Madison for the Knockouts Tag rematch.

Rosemary controls Gisele early and then bends her backwards and bites her forehead. Gisele almost starts taking back over, but then Rosemary gets out of a headlock the Crazzy Steve way. Rosemary takes some control early until Gisele powders and tries to find a way back into the match. Commercial break brings us to Gisele taking Rosemary’s head off with a Lariat.

Now Gisele is in control, throws Rosemary into a corner and starts pandering for a photo op and posturing to The Influence. Gisele strings together a lot of corner attacks, whips her into the corner again and lays her out with a Flying European Uppercut. Gisele tries to hit the knee in the back of the head, but Rosemary moves and starts her comeback. Big Suplex from the corner and Rosemary keeps her down for 2. Rosemary is in control until Gisele hits and Oscutter out of nowhere for 2. Reverse DDT from Rosemary for another near fall and then The Influence is on the move. They ambush Taya, Rosemary tries to go for her Spear anyway and Shaw kills Rosemary with a great Knee Strike. Rosemary is out, Gisele wins.

A small beat down, and then The Influence pause in the ring for a little, before posing with Gisele and seemingly giving their mark of approval on her being in The Influence now.

Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace

Savannah bulldozes Jordynne into the corner, but the power game is pretty even here. Savannah has some height, but Jordynne is quicker. Jordynne manages to turn the tables on Savannah, up and over in the corner and whips her into the ropes while setting up behind her causing Evans to trip and fall. Savannah powders, Jordynne tries to break up the discussion, but after a quick flurry, Savannah hits an Apron Chokeslam and takes over.

After some back and forth, Jordynne takes back over and then Muscle Buster on Savannah Evans and its over!

IMPACT Tag Team Championship: The Good Brothers (c) w/James Storm vs Vincent & PCO w/ Honor No More

Karl and Vincent start things off, and corner to corner we see the Machine Gun in control, but a thumb to the eyes and quick strike give Vincent the chance to tag in PCO. French Canadian Frankenstein starts beating on Karl, throws him into the ropes, Vincent kicks him and it just pisses off Karl. But Karl getting distracted gives PCO the ambush chance and Karl is just getting rocked. Vincent tagged back in, quick strikes including a corner Facewash with the elbow, sliding Flatliner and PCO is back in.

PCO goes Splash into dropping DDT before hitting the middle rope Guillotine Leg Drop. LG has gotten no action while Karl is getting killed. Deanimator set up looks to take out Karl even further, and it hits! Vincent tags in, and finally Anderson Spinebuster gets LG a hot tag. Big Boot takes out PCO on the apron, Superkick and flying Big Man flattens Vincent, tag to Karl, Magic Killer set up…but PCO with the save. Satellite Russian Leg Sweep from Vincent, RedRUM misses and Karl scoops the Small Package for the win.

Immediately Honor No More attacks. Chris Harris slides in and Honor No More choose to jaw and tease him instead of attacking immediately. HEATH’s music hits before they can attack Harris, and he comes loaded with pipes. Harris and Heath lay out Honor No More with pipes, Wake Up Call from Heath, Pump Kick, Gun Stun and then only Taven is left. Last Call Superkick sends Taven to sleep.

Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne

Zayne tries to start immediately, but Ace takes a page from the Jay White book and powders right away. Ace stays a step ahead until a nice Flipping Bodyscissors out of the corner keeps Ace rolling and eating some kicks. Ace tries a top corner move and Zayne flips into a Headscissors for the advantage before commercial. Coming back Ace is in control after driving Zayne into the post.

Ace and Zayne trade, we see Zayne finally get the best of the situations. Cinnamon Twist or Crunchwrap Supreme are hinted at, but Ace rolls away. Zayne tries to get Ace in position for his Taco Driver, but Ace has all the answers. Big kicks and strikes, Ace goes for the Outside/In Avalanche Headscissors, but Zayne mostly flips the through it, but eats a Triangle Kick for his attempted counter. The Fold – gets countered with a Sauce Trigger! Ace powders, Moonsauce to take out Bey and Ace, but Bey grabs his foot before he can get back in, Ace keeps the referee distracted…THE FOLD as soon as Zayne is back in the ring and Bullet Club wins!

Battle of the Futures Redux: Frankie Kazarian vs Chris Sabin w/ Alex Shelley

If this is as good as I anticipate…I may forget how to type. So fair warning if I get sucked in, this could be a short review.

We saw both men had a plan, Sabin went after Kaz’s legs early and often, where Kaz focused on the neck. There were great callbacks, classic moments, even the feint with the Flux Capacitor which is how Kaz won the original Battle of the Futures.

This was Brian Hebner’s final match, and hot damn was it a classic. Everything about this was great.

Overall Score: 9/10

Starting out hot with the X Division match, 2 solid Knockouts matches and a main event that could’ve easily been on any PPV over the last 20 years. This set the stage well for tomorrow’s Against All Odds and could’ve been one of the best Go Home episodes from any company in recent memory. Also it was really awesome getting the Raven vignette to hype the Clockwork Orange House of Fun.

My review of Against All Odds will be a little late since I had prior engagements because Fridays aren’t usually PPVs, but I’ll get to it on Saturday. Watch it live yourself, catch the run down Saturday, either way IMPACT is killin it with that TNA vibe. Maybe its time we go back to a certain 3 letters…a 6 sided ring, or hell, just announce Lethal Lockdown. Bring that back from the dead dammit!

Mitchell’s WWE NXT UK Results & Report! (6/30/22)




Artful Dodger or dastardly coward? You decide!

Last time he was on NXT UK, Trent Seven gave us crocodile tears and betrayed Tyler Bate! What will Seven say this week about what he’s done?


  • Blair Davenport VS Angel Hayze; Davenport wins.
  • Emilia McKenzie VS Fallon Henley; Henley wins.
  • Wolfgang VS Sha Samuels w/ Noam Dar; Wolfgang wins.


Blair Davenport VS Angel Hayze!

NXT UK beware, it’s the return of the heir! The gothic gladiator is back after that freak accident during her NXT UK Women’s Championship match with Meiko Satomura. Will Blair prove that nothing will stop her from taking the throne this time? Or will Angel leave her in a haze in her first match back?

The bell rings and the two circle. Blair and Angel tie up, go around, and Blair puts Angel on the ropes. The ref counts but Blair lets off fast. Blair and Angel reset, tie up, and Blair shoves Angel down! Fans rally up as Angel and Blair reset again. They tie up, Angel gets around to waistlock, Blair arm-drags free and Angel flounders to a corner. Blair runs in but Angel goes up and over, TWO! Angel boots Blair’s punch away, sobats then runs, to SHOTGUN Blair down! Cover, ONE!! Fans rally, Angel drags Blair up and reels her in, but Blair fights the suplex. Blair powers up, wrenches out and WRINGS the arm!

Fans rally as Blair snarls and stalks Angel. Blair runs in at the corner, Angel goes up and over again, but runs into a CHOP BLOCK! Blair DROPKICKS Angel in the back! Blair pushes Angel over to CLUB her on the back. Blair pushes Angel around, kicks her, and Angel gets to a corner. Blair is after her already and throws a heavy body shot! Angel hits back but Blair CLUBS her down again. Blair hauls Angel up, whips her to ropes and runs her over! Cover, TWO! Blair clamps onto Angels with a chinlock and she grinds Angel down. Fans rally as Angel endures, but Blair thrashes her around. Blair cranks the hold but Angel fights up to her feet.

Angel throws body shots, Blair CLUBS her again! Blair hauls Angel up to whip her to a corner. Blair runs in and GAMANGIRIS! Blair shoves Angel onto ropes, then runs side to side, SLIDING KICK! Cover, TWO! Angel survives and Blair is annoyed but the fans rally up. Blair shoves Angel to a corner, but Angel hits back. Blair CLUBS Angel, stands her up and whips her corner to corner.

Blair endures, stays up, CLUBS Angel and powers out with a BIG suplex! Fans fire up, Blair hauls Angel up for the FALCON ARROW! Cover, Blair wins!

Winner: Blair Davenport, by pinfall

And the heir gets right back on track! Blair gets the mic to say she is back! And she is here to crush all of your hopes. Is that key word a message to a certain someone? Or is it a message to everyone who would dare defy the heir?


NXT UK Media caught up with Sid Scala.

The Assistant General Manager returns to his office, and Kenny Williams is there waiting! Kenny says it’s about time Sid showed up! Kenny’s been working all night, as we can see by the conspiracy web taking over Sid’s office, and Kenny claims he has finally figured it out! Tiger Turan has to be none other than… Sid says Kenny needs to stop, this isn’t why Sid asked to meet with him. This is about next week, a match between Kenny and Tiger Turan! And just as Sid says that, Tiger steps in. Kenny says this is just who he was looking for. But here’s what will happen. Kenny will win, knock Turan out and take off his mask to reveal it’s Amir Jordan!

So right now, Tiger Turan can clean up this mess while Kenny prepares. Is the Scum of the Earth on to something? Is Tiger Turan obsessed with Kenny because it’s Amir Jordan, the man Kenny banished from NXT UK over a year ago? Or is he going to lose this match along with his mind?


Noam Dar & Sha Samuels enter the NXT UK Performance Center.

The Scottish Supernova isn’t sure why they’re here, but the East End Bookie/Butcher promises it is for good reason: they’re going to make some big money. Dar then sees the ring and the training session Mark Coffey is helping with. Dar & Sha taunt them and Mark walks over to ask, “What’s wrong? Run out of ways to cheat?” Dar says he never needs to cheat, and certainly not to beat Mark. Dar didn’t need to cheat to beat “Dog Man” Wolfgang, or to beat big brother Joe and run him out of town. Mark points out Dar only won because of his bookie at ringside. Mark guarantees that if Sha isn’t around, Mark wins the cup.

Sha says no way, Dar is the best ever! Mark says they can bet on it. Sha takes that bet! 100 to 1, Dar still beats Mark! Sha puts money on it quite literally, and says the market is open! Everyone else swarms Sha, wanting to put money on this, too! Dar looks worried with just how many want to join in. Are they betting all on Mark? Dar is a bit upset by that, but will he prove Sha right and take everyone, including Coffey, to the cleaners?


Emilia McKenzie VS Fallon Henley!

#SuplexMillie is still Meiko Satomura’s protégé, but she might be feeling the pressure as of late. The Final Boss demands the best out of her disciple, but will those expectations be met? Or will the Cowgirl rope herself a big win just like Briggs & Jensen did?

The bell rings and the two tie up. They go around, end up in a deadlock, but Millie shots around to waistlock. Fallon pries at the hold, standing switches, and SLAMS Millie down. Millie slips out to hammerlock and fans rally for Millie as she cranks the hold. Fallon fights to sit up, rolls out and has the wristlock. Millie slips through, wristlocks back, but Fallon pries at the hold. Fallon slips through, hammerlocks Millie now, but Millie works on the hold. Fallon rolls Millie up, TWO! Fans applaud the opening exchange as the two stare down. Fallon and Millie reset, tie up with knuckle locks, and they have a test of strength!

Millie wrenches the wrists, kicks an arm, rolls and trips Fallon to have a standing toehold! Fallon endures, uses her free leg to kick free, but Millie cartwheels through. Fans applaud again, and even Fallon offers a handshake. Millie accepts and fans cheer the sportsmanship, and the two tie up again. Millie powers Fallon back but Fallon turns it around to arm-drag Millie away. Fallon shoots in but Millie sits on the cover, ONE! Fallon sunset flips, ONE! Millie tries a jackknife but Fallon rolls through it, TWO! Millie has the sunset, TWO!! Fans fire up for that exchange and the two reset again.

They tie up, Millie headlocks, but Fallon powers up. Millie holds tight, Fallon pries the hold open and turns it around onto Millie! Millie endures, powers out but Fallon runs her over! Fallon does a two step then runs, but Millie keeps up with the drop, sidestep, but Fallon counters hip toss with a hip toss! Fallon arm-drags Millie away and Millie takes a moment to catch her breath. Fallon is on her but Millie EuroUppers! Millie kicks low, CLUBS Fallon on the back, and has her on the ropes. Millie CLUBS Fallon again, has her in a corner now and kicks her low. Fallon throws shots back but Millie CLUBS Fallon, into the TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO!

Fallon fights, Millie might just have it! Fallon is fading as Millie bends her backwards!! But Fallon gets a second wind and pries free to arm-drag Millie away!

Millie comes back to ROCK Fallon, Fallon ROCKS Millie! They throw hands, and Fallon DECKS Millie! Fallon fires up to back elbow Millie in a corner! And then a RUNNING FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up as Millie survives! Fallon drags Millie up, fireman’s carries, but Millie slips off and shoves to then LARIAT! And again! Millie shoots around to get Fallon up for a BIG bag suplex! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and Millie snarls as she hauls Fallon up. Fallon fights the German Suplex, pops free to switch, but Millie elbows Fallon. Millie whips Fallon to a corner but Fallon goes up and over. Fallon’s leg tweaks! Millie shows no mercy, CHOP BLOCK!!

Millie stomps away on Fallon’s leg and fans fire up! Millie drags Fallon up, reels her in, SHIN BREAKER! And then another SHIN BREAKER! Fallon hobbles, Millie gets her again, but Fallon sunset flips! FALLON WINS!

Winner: Fallon Henley, by pinfall

Millie showed her killer instinct, but maybe she let it get the better of her! Will this be the exact opposite of what Meiko wanted for Millie?


NXT UK Media catches up with Oliver Carter.

They ask him if he’s been keeping in contact with Ashton Smith while he’s out with injury. Of course! Oliver has Ashton on speed dial. They are brothers, that’s never gonna change. But then Teoman and his Die Familie “brothers,” Rohan Raja and Charlie Dempsey slither in and say hi to “Oli.” They sit with him and they feel like this is deja vu. Oliver’s alone, no Ashton Smith, no titles. Oliver needs a family to watch out for him. It is a dangerous place out there. Join them! It’s in his best interest. They’ll let him think about it, and take their leave. Is there anything to think about? Or will the Hottest Superstar Under the Sun actually consider their invitation?


NXT UK Media catches up with Sarray.

The Warrior of the Sun is about to get in a set of squats as they ask her how she feels after her NXT UK debut. Sarray says it was very good. She got a win over Nina Samuels, and she- “Aww~, look!” Xia and Eliza return to mock Sarray for simply training in the UK PC after her first win. It’s so cute. But has Eliza heard the good news? Sarray’s sticking around for a bit. Oh, is she? But then Meiko and Millie step up to back the bullies down. Eliza tells Sarray that she better just play by their rules, or they’ll be more than happy to teach Sarray a few things.

Meiko tells Eliza that she talks too much. If Eliza & Xia want a match with Meiko and Sarray, then Eliza & Xia will be the ones being taught a lesson. Millie seems a bit surprised Meiko didn’t choose her, while Xia & Eliza storm off, Xia complaining about who is teaching who lessons. But with that, Sarray finishes putting up the weights for Meiko to take a turn. Will Final Boss & Warrior of the Sun prove to the bullies the power of Joshi Strong Style?


Wolfgang VS Sha Samuels w/ Noam Dar!

The Last King of Scotland heard the East End Butcher talking some smack like he wouldn’t hear it. But since he did, it’s time for Sha to put his money where his mouth is! Will Wolfgang get a big win and cash in? Or will Sha find another way to weasel out another victory?

The bell rings and the two circle. Sha gets some last minute pointers from Dar. They say they can frustrate Wolfgang and get the edge. But then Dar needs to give Sha another pointer. The ref insists they get this started already, and Wolfgang rushes in. Sha dodges, then dodges again. Sha goes back to Dar for that last pointer but Wolfgang throws Sha out of the corner! Wolfgang fires off haymakers, then an arm-drag! Wolfgang keeps on the arm with a wristlock, then stands Sha up to RAM shoulders. And again! And then a straight arm lever and SLAM! Fans fire up and Wolfgang drags Sha up again to RAM shoulders again.

Wolfgang wrenches, and hits a straight arm suplex! Cover, ONE! Dar is upset but Wolfgang keeps on Sha’s arm. Sha ROCKS Wolfgang with his free arm, then bumps Wolfgang off buckles. Sha bumps Wolfgang off more buckles, then throws heavy back elbows. Sha runs in to SPLASH Wolfgang. Wolfgang shoves Sha away, runs in, but Sha sends Wolfgang into buckles! Fans boo but Dar wants to throw up the X. Sha grabs the bad arm for an ARMBAR DDT! Sha CLUBS the bad arm, uppercuts it, then hip drops on it! Wolfgang clutches that arm, tries to get it working, but Sha drops an elbow on it!

Sha clamps onto the arm, Wolfgang fights the cobra clutch and throws body shots. But Sha wrenches and WRINGS the bad arm! Dar offers a drink but Sha says no, he has to keep working. Sha throws down elbows into the bad arm, then stands on Wolfgang to say, “ON THE MONEY~!” Sha KICKS the bad leg, then shouts out “EAST~!” Sha stomps Wolfgang but fans chant, “You’re a Mug! You’re a Mug!” Dar says yeah, Wolfgang’s the mug! But that’s not who they mean. Sha RAMS Wolfgang into the buckles, stomps away on the bad arm, then runs in to stomp it again! The ref backs Sha off, and Dar SMACKS Wolfgang around with the papers!

Wolfgang gets mad and he CHOPS Sha! And CHOPS again! And counter punches! Wolfgang suplexes Sha, but Sha fights to get to the apron. Sha HOTSHOTS the bad arm! Wolfgang staggers away and Sha gets in to run and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Wolfgang is still in this, and Dar offers another drink. Sha says no, and he drops elbow after elbow on Wolfgang! Sha then goes up a corner, and leaps for a FLYING ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Wolfgang is still in this and fans rally up. Sha stalks Wolfgang, CLUBS him at the ropes, then pulls on the bad arm. Wolfgang ROCKS Sha and gives him a kitchen sink knee! BASEMENT SENTON!

Dar is worried as Wolfgang suplexes Sha for the CAB- NO, no toss! Sha slips off, CLUBS Wolfgang and has a top wristlock on the bad arm! Fans rally as Wolfgang endures, fights up, but Sha wants the arm! Wolfgang arm-drags free! Wolfgang goes to the corner, Sha runs in but Wolfgang sends him into buckles! Wolfgang bumps Sha off buckles, fires off haymakers, then keeps Sha cornered to CHOP! Wolfgang whips corner to corner, then runs in, into an uppercut! Wolfgang snarls, shoves Sha back in, and SPLASHES in the corner! Sha flops and Wolfgang is on the apron, working on the bad arm.

Wolfgang climbs but Dar distracts! The ref reprimands but Wolfgang leaps, into a SPINEBUSTER from Sha! Cover, TWO!! Fans rally for Wolfgang while Sha is furious! Sha hauls Wolfgang up, reels him in and whips, but Wolfgang slips off the scoop to POINT-BLANK SPEAR!! But the bad arm holds Wolfgang back from making the cover, and Sha crawls away to his corner. Dar fans Sha, but fans rally for Wolfgang. Wolfgang grabs at Sha on the apron, hauls him up the corner, but Sha throws body shots. Sha HOTSHOTS the bad arm again! Wolfgang is stuck up top and Sha ROCKS him with haymakers! Sha DECKS Wolfgang!

Sha climbs up again, for the FROG SPLASH onto knees! Wolfgang saves himself but both men are down and writhing. Fans rally up again and Wolfgang grits his teeth as he gets back up. Wolfgang rallies on Sha with the one good arm! Wolfgang whips Sha to then back drop him! Fans fire up, Sha gets to a corner and Wolfgang runs in to fire off forearms! Wolfgang howls and runs, to SPLASH again! Dar is up on the apron but Wolfgang BOOTS him down! Fans cheer and Wolfgang SLINGSHOTS to SPEAR!! Cover, Wolfgang wins!!

Winner: Wolfgang, by pinfall

Fans cheer as the Last King of Scotland stands tall! This Gallus Boy is on top, but will Mark Coffey be on top in two weeks after he gets one more shot at Dar and the Heritage Cup?


Trent Seven heads to the ring.

And what a strange thing, for all the fans to boo this Founding Father of NXT UK. He gets a mic and “thanks” us all for that reception. Seven heard the chant of “Why, Trent, Why?” Good question! He will use visual aids to explain just exactly why. The tron shows Trent giving Tyler Bate that truly underhanded low blow uppercut. Trent gets teary eyed as he says it is just beautiful. “It’s the best low blow ever. That’s what it is.” Just look at his positioning! A work of art, really. And more importantly, it represents a turning point. “That right there is the most important moment in British Sports.” Fans chant, “No it’s not! No it’s not!”

But he says yes it is, and we all know it is, “because it’s the moment that Trent Seven saved the industry.” Fans boo but Seven asks they listen. It is the truth “because this place was dead! This studio was a ghost town! And now look at you all! Now look at you all back! The largest crowd in NXT UK BT Sports history is here because Trent Seven is on top!” Fans boo more but Seven says, “It’s a fact. This is where I like to be. Right here. Right at the top, right in the middle, the CENTER of attention!” Fans chant, “We Want Tyler!” and Seven is annoyed. “Tyler Bate is done. Now I am the center of attention, and we were the center of attention as British Strong Style! And as Moustache Mountain.”

Seven goes on about how they were touring the world, selling out every arena, and promotors were begging them to even be on the shows. “Please~! We need you~!” Yes, they did. And that is why fans need to understand it isn’t Seven who changed, it’s Tyler who changed. Seven never lost the killer instinct, he never stopped doing what was needed to win, but it was Tyler who lost his nerve. That will to win is gone, because “it’s all that rubbish, sitting in a field, hugging a tree.” But Bate isn’t coming back, and we know he won’t because he won’t fight Seven! Fans chant, “Yes, He Will!” Seven says no, he won’t, because Bate lost his fighting spirit.

“Tyler Bate is the Little Weak Boy. And I am NXT UK! I am this brand! I am NXT! I am British Strong Style! Come here! Come here! I am Moustache Mountain!!” Fans boo as Seven sets down the mic, and Seven says everyone knows he’s telling the truth. Is he telling the truth about the future of NXT UK? Or will Tyler Bate prove Trent Seven is a liar and make a heroic return?

Wait, a fan gets really heated about Seven saying Tyler is weak and afraid. So much so, friends and security are trying to get him to calm down. But the fan jumps the barrier instead! Security rushes in to stop this man from getting closer and Seven says, “We’ve got a live one!” And then he LOW BLOW KICKS the fan!! Referees rush out and say Seven is out of line! Seven says the fan is the one who got up in Seven’s face. Is there nothing Seven won’t do just to make himself feel like the bigger man?

My Thoughts:

A very good episode of NXT UK with some good set-up for the summer episodes. Blair Davenport gets a good return match win, with Angel Hayze still looking very good in the loss. And Blair emphasizing “hope” at the end of her promo has to be her setting up something with Amale before moving on to the title again. Kenny and Sid had a good interaction to set up Kenny VS Tiger Turan. But sadly for me and my theories, if Kenny also thinks Amir Jordan is Tiger Turan, then that must mean it isn’t because they wouldn’t do that. They can’t let Kenny be right about this, right? It’d be pretty wild for Kenny to win and be right about who Tiger Turan is under the mask.

Millie VS Fallon was a very good match, but I feel like they could’ve played up more of Millie struggling to be aggressive before it backfired on her. But Millie losing does help build her story of disappointing Meiko and herself. Millie also had a very good bit of character work showing her surprise and bit of hurt feelings when Meiko chose Sarray to be her tag partner against Xia & Eliza. But that’s still going to be an awesome match with Sarray and Meiko side by side. Meiko & Sarray will surely win and that will surely set up Meiko VS Sarray for an awesome NXT UK Women’s Championship.

We got a decent interaction from Oliver Carter and Die Familie. I would think Carter rejects Die Familie’s invitation, and he could easily team up with other superstars who don’t like Die Familie, like Mastiff & Starz or even A-Kid. And we got a pretty good promo with Sha, Dar and Mark Coffey about how we’re getting that 100 to 1 betting odds Heritage Cup match. If Mark is getting one more shot in what Dar claims should be his “retirement” match, does that mean Mark wins? Someone from Gallus should get something more, and Dar losing will be his own reason for “not retiring.” Plus, if Mark wins, and Joe Coffey comes back, I’d love seeing Mark VS Joe for the cup.

Wolfgang VS Sha was a great main event match, and I figured Wolfgang would win to get Gallus back up. I don’t know what’s next for Wolfgang, but he’s always been a solid character and in-ring worker. And then, we closed with a very good promo from Seven, with him playing off the crowd’s chants and booing very well. That final bit with “the fan” was quite a surprise but it sure adds to Seven’s Heel heat. But obviously, Bate is coming back and he is going to have one hell of a match with Seven. Can’t be sure who wins that, but it’d make a lot of sense if Seven cheated to win, and then somehow, Seven uses that to go after Ilja Dragunov and the UK Championship.

My Score: 8.5/10
