NXT mourns the loss of “Razor Ramon,” Scott Hall.


The Miz is here in NXT!

The Hollywood A-Lister walks out to the ring as this becomes a special edition of the Most Must-See WWE Talk Show, MizTV! And the only two-time Grand Slam in the history of WWE is on NXT 2.0! And it feels good! Fans chant for Miz, and Miz says another thing that feels good is that at WrestleMania, yours truly and the social media icon, Logan Paul, taking on Rey & Dominik Mysterio. But last week, one man turned WrestleMania Weekend upside-down. A good frenemy of Miz’s, it’s the NEW NXT Champion, DOLPH ZIGGLER! And Robert Roode, too. The Dirty Dawgs make their way out and Roode points to the Show-Off’s new title belt.

Roode wants people on their feet because the champ is here, but they’re booing instead. Ziggler and Roode go to the ring and even hug it out with Miz. Miz says they’re ready for it! Let’s not waste any time. How does it feel to be NXT Champion? After 15 years outmaneuvering everyone, this just feels right. Ziggler wants to be the first to welcome Miz and his talk show to HIS show, NXT! “We are NXT, brother!” Miz says the belt looks good on Ziggler. Miz loves how Ziggler waltzed in, went up to Bron Breakker, and Miz says that for those expecting Bron to show up and break things, he won’t do that! And here’s why!

Miz cuts it to a video, and as Bron was arriving to the Performance Center, hunting down Ziggler, he went after a car as it pulled up. The coaches got Bron to stop right there, and then Bron drove off. “Rookies.” What a sore loser! Roode says Bron has nothing to complain about, Bron agreed to the Triple Threat! And everyone knows, in a Triple Threat, there are no rules. Roode follows the rules. That’s why we’re sitting here with a NEW NXT Champion! Ziggler says Bron was smart to turn back and leave here. But let’s talk about something more important: Ziggler! Ziggler IS NXT Champion, and he IS a fighting champion. Ziggler loves wrestling!

Ziggler doesn’t do it for pats on the back or accolades or even the money. And they have lots of money! Miz has lots of money. But- L A KNIGHT appears! And fans go nuts for the Million Dollar Megastar! Knight gets a mic, has everyone calm down, and says, “Lemme talk to ya!” Ziggler, last time Knight ran into him at Raw, he said any given Tuesday, the door’s open! And look at him now. Ziggler is NXT Champion! And good on him. But if Bron can’t be here to challenge for the title, then Knight’s not gonna wait. Ziggler and the one and only, L A KNIGHT, YEAH! Ziggler wants the “kid” to get this right: Ziggler IS a fighting champion! But only against superstars.

Miz speaks up. Ziggler has a point. Knight is a great performer, and when Knight’s on the mic, everyone listens. Knight will be a major player. Just not yet. Knight takes off the jacket and says, “You’re right. I’m not a superstar. I’m a damn MEGASTAR! And what that means is any day of the week, I can take that title off of you!” Ziggler says this is his show? NAH NAH! Orlando, tell ’em whose show this is! “L A KNIGHT!” That means Ziggler has something that belongs to Knight! So if Ziggler is saying this is his show, NAH NAH! Show him!

Well, the world needs ditch diggers. So listen up: the NXT Champ only wrestles in the main event. And the day Knight figures out where that is, that is where Knight will find him. Miz says tonight will be history! Ziggler will defend his title against LA Knight!! And it will be AWWWWESOME~! MizTV finally delivers something big! Will Knight make this his night


Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams head to commentary.

The North American Champion and his right hand man want to be here to see things firsthand. That’s because the first North American Championship Ladder Match Qualifier is up next!


Backstage interview with Cora Jade.

McKenzie brings up Toxic Attraction hurting Raquel Gonzalez. But then Cora went after Mandy, what message was she sending? Simple: Toxic Attraction will have hell to pay. Raquel is out for four to six weeks, but Cora has a really good feeling that while she’s looking for them, Toxic Attraction will be looking for her. How exactly does she know that? Just look. She stole the belts! The one thing Toxic Attraction cares about is the tag titles, and above all else, the NXT Women’s Championship. They’re gonna be pissed. Cora has all the gold in her arms, but has she just put a huge target on her back?


NXT North American Championship Ladder Match Qualifier: Cameron Grimes VS Santos Escobar w/ Legado del Fantasma!

Melo is pitting Solo Sikoa against Roderick Strong, and Grayson Waller against the winner of A-Kid VS Kushida tonight! How will this ladder match take shape on the road to Stand & Deliver?


NXT hears from Io Shirai & Kay Lee Ray.

The Evil Genius says, “Next week is the finals of the Women’s Dusty Cup.” KLR says they have a mutual rule, and they made it very clear last week. They got in this because they wanted to destroy Toxic Attraction. And in their minds, there is only one way to do that. They don’t really like making friends, but they do have a common enemy. Wendy & Dakota will be tough to beat, but this tournament is theirs. KLR & Shirai teamed up because they have had and they want to have gold. Toxic Attraction’s reign in NXT will come to an end!


Wendy Choo & Dakota Kai meet backstage.

Wendy just got done watching Shirai & KLR say their part, but Wendy is more into her orange soda. Dakota saw that video, too, though. And she is panicking! There’s no way they can win! Wendy says Shirai & KLR are a tough team, but they can do it! Dakota agrees, she did win last year so maybe she can this year. But then Toxic Attraction barges in and asks if they’ve seen Cora. Seeing as how Cora took the belts and all, they’re going to get her and take her out like they did Raquel! Four to six weeks? More like eight to ten! But it doesn’t matter, they better make room in the hospital because Cora’s gonna be right next to Raquel.

Dakota says they didn’t have to do that to Raquel, Dakota & Wendy had the match won. A simple thanks would be nice. They did all the work for you! Wendy stands up for Dakota. They really didn’t have to, so why did they? Because they can. Listen, you two just get the job done, okay? Now let’s split up, find Cora, and whoever finds Cora first, make sure to leave something left for the other two. Done. Wendy gets these three are hot, but they’re so weird. yeah, really weird. Will Toxic Attraction track down Cora? Or will them splitting up play into Cora’s plan?


A-Kid VS KUSHIDA w/ Ikemen Jiro!

The Spanish Sensation made history in NXT UK as the inaugural winner of the Heritage Cup Championship, but is looking to do even bigger in NXT! But will the Time Splitter put him to the test in his first match across the pond?

What a way to show up in Orlando! And now, as Carmelo Hayes promised, A-Kid will be facing Grayson Waller in a ladder match qualifier! Will the Spanish Sensation get through the 21st Century Success Story to go to Stand & Deliver?


Backstage interview with Legado del Fantasma.

McKenzie congratulates Santos Escobar on qualifying, but he says he said it before, so he’ll say it again: Escobar is the greatest luchador of all time! The greatest the WWE has ever seen. Stand & Deliver will be his time! He will become the NEW NXT North American Champion! But then Rey & Dominik Mysterio show up! Escobar welcomes them to NXT, but then he hears Wilde & Mendoza mumbling about “greatest luchador of all time.” Dom says the greatest is the one standing right here, Rey Mysterio. Elektra says Escobar is the man who will break all of Rey’s records. Well, that’s an opinion. Because the one who is taking lucha libre to the next generation is Rey’s son.

Mendoza & Wilde don’t take that seriously. Dom says he’s not here to talk, he’s here to fight! So then he wants one of them? Yeah, whichever one is man enough. Then Mendoza takes that bet. Vamanos. Escobar tells the Mysterios that they just made a big mistake. Rey says Dom’s got this, but will the Mysterios have to watch out for all of Legado?


Sarray VS Tiffany Stratton!

The Warrior of the Sun wouldn’t let Daddy’s Little Rich Girl get away with bullying her, and she made sure Tiffany felt da feet last week. Will Tiffany feel them all over again? Or will she take being a Mean Girl to the next level now that she’s facing Sarray at full power?

Wait, scratch that! Tiffany attacks Sarray backstage before the transformation sequence can begin! Is she a bully or a supervillain? Tiffany clubs and stomps Sarray all the way up the ramp! Fans boo as she KICKS Sarray to the ring! Tiffany shoves Sarray into the ring, the bell rings, and Tiffany CLOBBERS Sarray! Tiffany fires off on Sarray, the ref backs her off and Tiffany acts like it’s not a big deal, But then Sarray drop toeholds Tiffany into buckles! Fans fire up as Sarray stomps Tiffany into ropes. Sarray runs in, but Tiffany moves and the dropkick tumbles out of the ring! Sarray gets back in the ring, Tiffany runs and handsprings to SPLASH!

Tiffany is seething as she goes up, TORNILLO VADER! Cover, Tiffany wins!

Winner: Tiffany Stratton, by pinfall

Sadly, sometimes the bully wins. Will Sarray have to be faster the next time she wants to take on Daddy’s Little Rich Girl?


LA Knight encounters Gunther backstage.

The Ring General says Knight getting his title match tonight is all good for him, but he didn’t earn it with skill. He talked his way into that match. Knight uses his voice a lot, but Gunther does not respect that. Knight says he doesn’t have to respect anything. Just know that Knight is about to become NXT Champion. So if Gunther’s asking for the next up, Knight has no problems with that! Gunther says Knight can’t be serious. Gunther doesn’t see a champion, just an embarrassment to this great sport! Well if Gunther is talking about Knight’s mouth, the word he’s looking for is “charisma.” If Gunther looked around, he might find some.

Because here’s the thing, this is sports entertainment. Gunther has the first part, but Knight has both. So if you’ll excuse him, he has a match to get ready for. YEAH! Knight walks off, but will Gunther teach him the Imperium way of doing things?


Jacy Jayne spots a tag title!

She doesn’t question that it’s hanging up above some shelves, she goes right for it. She taps it, nothing happens, so she pulls it down. A trap is sprung! Cora locks her inside! Cora taunts Jacy with the keys then runs off! One down, two to go!


Tommaso Ciampa goes to the ring.

The Pulse of NXT shouts out Razor Ramon with the swagger, then fist bumps some fans. Ciampa gets in the ring and gets the mic as fans chant his name. They also chant, “CIAMPA’S HOUSE!” while he sits up on the top rope. Ciampa says, “Tonight, I want to take an opportunity… I love you, too.” But he wants to talk to us about gratitude. Sometimes, Ciampa still to this day just looks around and takes it all in. This is his life, this has been his life. Fans cheer that sentiment and chant his name again.

Ciampa has been doing this for 17 years, and he remembers the entire time on the indies, he wanted to find a place he could call home, a place that would believe in him, and would give him the chance to prove he can be The Guy. It’s hard to explain it, because he’s always had this feeling that if he got that one chance to run with the ball, damn would he run with the ball. Luckily, that opportunity was here in NXT and WWE. For the largest freakin’ company on the planet! That right there is gratitude. He knows everyone knows, but since coming here, success wasn’t something that came immediately or easily.

But then again, things in life worth fighting for the most seldom come easy. But Ciampa’s been here since 2015. Together, we’ve been from… Fans chant, “Thank You, Ciampa!” “Please Don’t Go!” Ciampa says if we recap those seven years, you go from DIY underdogs to the glorious bombs to the NXT Championship to the Blackheart to the single greatest NXT Champion of all TIME! Ciampa would love to call it some sort of DIY story, but this never was about doing it by himself. He always had the fans to do it with him. He always had them to cheer him or boo him at his best. Fans boo for old time’s sake.

Ciampa still thinks to New Orleans, walking out to no music and just the boos and profanities. And in that moment, we all knew it, that was something special. We were creating a star! They were telling the others, “Ciampa can be the guy!” Fans chant, “You’re The Guy!” and Ciampa smiles. He says it’s been a crazy long journey of ups, downs, setbacks, surgeries, black ‘n’ gold to 2.0. But what remained the same was Ciampa never leaving, and the fans never leaving. That right there is gratitude. Now hear him out here. This is where he isn’t sure where he’s going.

For the last seven years, he thought that if this chapter was ever to close, Ciampa would know. And over the last few months, he thought more so than any time before, Ciampa wants to know what his fairy tale ending is. He has been thinking a lot about this. Walking into a show like Stand & Deliver on WrestleMania weekend, biggest stage of them all as champion, that would be the perfect ending. But the fact of the matter is, he had that opportunity last week. Three years ago, he was supposed to do that in New York, but he had to put that on hold because of neck surgery. He was to right the wrong last week, bring it full circle, to have his fairy tale ending, and he lost.

Now, Ciampa in these last seven days, he’s thinking, “What’s next then?” Is there a perfect way to close this out? Fans chant, “One More Match!” Ciampa hears them, and he says this much now. He doesn’t have an answer. He wishes he did. But what he does know is that not often do you get a chance to say thanks before it’s too late. This is his opportunity, he will not miss it. He means this from the bottom of his heart. The last seven years, to each and every fan here and at home, “Thank you.” Fans give Ciampa a standing ovation and chant, “Thank You, Ciampa!” But then Tony D’Angelo gets in the ring?!

Ciampa looks him down, and that is a BIG crowbar in Tony’s hands. Tony drops it, Ciampa thinks about grabbing it, but Tony says he could’ve done this, but Ciampa’s different. Tony respects Ciampa enough to talk to him face to face. Tony’s been thinking, “Who do I gotta beat to put Tony D’Angelo in the history books?” Who would make Tony the man in NXT? Who? And here he stands, in front of that guy. Ciampa’s been the face of NXT for awhile now. So it’d be an honor if Ciampa and Tony threw hands at Stand & Deliver. What does Ciampa say? Tony offers a handshake and fans chant, “YES! YES! YES!”

Ciampa thinks about it. He shakes Tony’s hand! Fans cheer, and then Tony low blows Ciampa! So much for respect! Tony says it was always Ciampa! Stand & Deliver, Tony becomes the new don! Tony gives Ciampa a kiss on the cheek, he’s marked for death! Will Tony D learn on the biggest stage in NXT history that you do NOT cheap shot the Psycho Killer?


Indi Hartwell VS Persia Pirotta!

Success, failure, and drama. Those things tore these two friends apart, and now they might tear each other apart! They oddly make their entrance together, too. Will they be able to stay friends after this? Or is this the end of an impressive team in NXT?

The bell rings and the two stare down. They shake hands, but then don’t let go easy. They start shoving, and Persia shoves harder! Indi gets back up, but Persia blocks the kick to knee low. Persia whips, Indi goes up but Persia stays back, Persia waistlocks, Indi throws elbows, but Persia shoves her again. Indi duck sand dodges but Persia BOOTS her down! Cover, TWO! Persia drags Indi up, scoops her and SNAKE EYES in the corner! Then she shoves Indi into a corner and SPLASHES! Cover, TWO! Persia clamps onto an arm but Indi fights up. Persia wrenches and CLUBS Indi’s arm then stomps the ring finger!

Indi snarls as she clutches her hand, and Persia mocks Indi that Dexter’s cut her off. Indi gets up to CHOP! And CHOP! And fire off haymakers! Indi runs in to clothesline then BULLDOG! Cover, TWO! Persia gets to a corner, Indi runs in but is put on the apron, Indi shoulder sin, but Duke Hudson appears Indi kicks at him, but Persia CLUBS Indi! Persia fireman’s carries Indi in, but DEXTER appears from under the ring! Maybe Indi should’ve just checked under there… Persia spots Dexter and freezes up, and then Duke sees him! Indi sunset flips Persia and WINS!

Winner: Indi Hartwell, by pinfall

#InDex is reunited! Persia and Duke can’t believe it! But then InDex both slither in the ring and stare them down. Persia and Duke try to outdo this with a kiss! So InDex kisses! Fans are loving this liplock contest! Indi even rips off Dexter’s shirt and pushes him to the mat! So Persia does the same! NXThirsty much? Will this weird contest through passion look to Stand & Deliver?


Gigi Dolin storms around the parking lot.

She looks inside car windows, but she spots the title in a dumpster. She storms up and reaches for it, but she has no choice but to get up in it. Whatever it takes to get her belt back, right? Even if it’s gross… Gigi grabs her belt, but then the fork lift shuts it closed and clamps down on the lid! Cora says hey, heard you were looking for her. Is Gigi talking to Cora? Didn’t know trash could speak. Blah blah, when you get outta there, yeah, Cora gets it. Two down, one to go! What trap will Cora set for Mandy?


Dominik Mysterio w/ Rey Mysterio VS Raul Mendoza w/ Legado del Fantasma!

The legacy of lucha is essentially on the line here! The son of the King of Lucha has his first NXT match ever, ready to defend Legado del Mysterio! But will Escobar’s technical assassin take care of Dom the first time out?

The bell rings and Dom circles with Mendoza. Fans are all on Dom’s side as he tie sup with Mendoza. Mendoza waistlocks, Dom wrenches out and they knuckle lock. Mendoza trips Dom but Dom monkey flips to his feet to then sunset flip! ONE, and Mendoza hurries to sweep! Dom headscissors but Mendoza handsprings through! Mendoza runs but Edom ducks the kick to handspring! Dom counter punches Mendoza, knuckle locks and CHOPS, then goes up and up and around to FLYING ARM-DRAG! Mendoza ends up in a corner, Dom dropkicks him down! Fans fire up with Dom as he runs in, but Mendoza dodges.

Mendoza comes back but into an elbow! Dom goes up but Mendoza YANKS him down! Mendoza stomps Dom, drags him into a cobra clutch and grinds Dom down. Fans rally, Dom fights up and throws body shots. Dom powers Mendoza into a corner then arm-drags free. Dom ducks and dodges to springboard CROSSBODY! And then tilt-o-whirl headsicissors! Mendoza ends up in a corner, he puts Dom on the apron, but Dom counter punches again! Dom goes up, but Lopez distracts! Mendoza handspring PELES Dom down! But wait, Fallon Henley trips Lopez up! Lopez is pissed, but here come Briggs &B rooks to back Fallon up!

Fans fire up, and Rey DECKS Escobar! Mendoza is freaking out, and he turns around into Dom’s wheelbarrow throw! Dom dials it up, 619!! Then to the corner, for some Latino Heat and FROG SPLASH! Cover, Dom wins!

Winner: Dominik Mysterio, by pinfall

Legado tried to use numbers, but numbers evened up! Dom gets a huge win in NXT, but is this battle with Legado del Fantasma only beginning?


WWE pays tribute to “Razor Ramon,” Scott Hall.

He proved it was good to be a Bad Guy. Hall made an instant impact in 1992 as the character, Razor Ramon. “You can’t teach somebody to be cool. And Scott Hall has always been cool.” It was finally cool to be bad. Hall would become one of the greatest WWE Intercontinental Champions, winning WWE’s first ladder match to become the undisputed Intercontinental Champion. And then of course, in WCW, Hall & Nash would add Hulk Hogan to the New World Order. “Hey, yo. Are you hear to see the nWo?” When your nWo, you’re nWo 4 life! The WWE family will forever remember Hall as a gifted entertainer, two-time Hall of Famer, a loving father, and a dear friend.

“Hard work pays off. Dreams come true. Bad times don’t last, but bad guys do.” – Scott Hall


Cora Jade walks around with the top title.

And she finds Mandy’s new Range Rover. It’d be a shame if it got lost, or a new paint job. Cora looks at the women’s title, the thing she wants. It could be hers. Let’s go for a ride, shall we? Cora hops into Mandy’s car, but Mandy’s already waiting! Mandy bumps Cora off the steering heel, then brings Cora around to smack off the hood! Cora hits back, Mandy knees low, CLUBS Cora down, then kicks her. “You think you can humiliate me?!” Mandy SLAPS then KNEES Cora down! Mandy says Lil’ Cora wants the title? Mandy will fight her and any other woman in the back! Cora’s not on her level and never will be!

Mandy then picks up Cora’s spray paint and sprays “T A” on Cora’s back. The others arrive, having been freed, and Mandy says, “Game over, bitch.” Will Cora get that title match, and then get that title? Or will Toxic Attraction run NXT forever?


The Creed Brothers get in the ring!

Julius brings up them getting blindsided before they could win the NXT Tag Team Championships. And until they find out who did, bodies will fly and heads will roll! If it was you, get your asses out here right now! Brutus adds that they don’t know who it was and it doesn’t matter! What matters is that they be men and face the Creeds head-on! They’re ready! They have all the time in the world! MSK heads out!? Was it Lee & Carter who attacked in the parking lot? MSK wears nWo shirts and Lee says, “Hey, yo. We really hope that y’all see we’re not the ones who attacked you last week.” Julius says BS!

Lee says he and Carter even made a point to stand up for the Creeds! Carter says they cost MSK the titles.  MSK even promised them to be first in line. But instead, the Creeds had to come out and crash the party, throwing it all away. Malcolm Bivens says no, MKS are the two who cut in line after the Creeds beat them to win the Men’s Dusty Cup! So no more of that around here until the Creeds get what they deserve. But here comes Imperium! Marcel Barthel shouts from the perch, “It is hilarious looking down there at you arguing about something that you’re never going to obtain anyway.”

Fabian Aichner says these four waste time talking when they know none of them have what it takes to take the titles. Bivens says Aichner is all the way up there, but how about he and Barthel come all the way down to the ring and give the Creeds their shot at those titles! MSK speaks up, saying they deserve a chance, too. And at least MSK is face to face with the Creeds. Imperium all the way up there, cuz they know they’d get bitch slapped. That much they all agree on! Aichner asks if they all really think they stand a chance, and that they’re all deserving. Well, they disagree. Imperium wants the world to see them fail to prove themselves!

Imperium is ready, for a TRIPLE THREAT at Stand & Deliver! MSK VS Creed Brothers VS Imperium! Little Bivens loves talking about reality and perception. Well the perception is that putting them in a Triple Threat will be a disadvantage. But the reality is, IMPERIUM FEARS NO ONE! See you at Stand & Deliver! They do say everything’s bigger in Texas, and that might just be the case here! Will Barthel & Aichner prove that the numbers will spell disaster for MSK and the Creeds in Dallas?


Backstage interview with Cameron Grimes.

McKenzie knows he lost, and must be disappointed. Yeah, “disappointing.” That’s all Grimes has been hearing. He keeps saying he’ll go to the moon but he just disappoints. He’ll be at home watching the biggest show in the business on his couch. He wants to be on Stand & Deliver. The last thing Grimes told his dad was that he signed to NXT and would be a champion. But three years later, he just keeps disappointing. Will Grimes be able to turn this around? Or will Stand & Deliver pass him by?


Malcolm Bivens interrogates teams backstage.

He wants them to shut up. Either they did it or didn’t do it. Let him know so he can cross their names off the list. Edris Enofe speaks up for his team. He and Malik don’t get down like that! They straight up. And to be honest, they  might’ve attacked someone last week, but it was Mandy’s waiters, cuz they were getting too close to her. And no one can fault Malik cuz Mandy smells like lavender. Bivens tells them it is only March. Zack Gibson speaks up for Grizzled Young Veterans. How can Bivens question them when these “creepy little simps” are rolling out evidence. GYV are stand-up gentlemen.

The Creeds storm in and confront GYV. They are adamant that GYV had to be the ones, cuz we’ve seen them do all sorts of underhanded schemes! They remember those accents, too! Gibson says if GYV knew they were just going to hand out title opportunities, GYV would’ve jumped the Creeds weeks ago! Bivens says we run it back. GYV VS Creeds, next week! Big money! Well if it gets GYV closer to the top, fine. But lightning doesn’t strike twice! Will Gibson & Drake look to take the Triple Threat to a Fatal 4?


NXT Championship: Dolph Ziggler w/ Robert Roode VS LA Knight!

The show opened with the Show-Off and now it’ll close with the Show-Off! But will his GLORIOUS tag partner help him win here like he did just last week? Or will this title soon belong to the Million Dollar Megastar? We find out, after the break, YEAH!

NXT returns as the Dirty Dawgs make their way out. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see just whose game this really is!

Ziggler and Knight circle, tie up, and Knight headlocks. Ziggler powers out, Knight runs him over! Fans fire up with Knight and he stares at Ziggler. Ziggler gets up and circles with Knight again. They tie up, go around, and Ziggler shoots in to get a leg. Knight floats around that, but they end up on ropes. The ref counts, Ziggler lets off but kicks low! Ziggler bumps Knight off buckles, then snapmares to clamp on a chinlock. Ziggler thrashes Knight, but Knight endures and fights up. Fans rally, Knight powers out, but Ziggler runs Knight over! Ziggler swivels hips, runs, but Knight CLOBBERS him! Cover, ONE!

Knight clamps onto an arm, kicks Ziggler in the ribs then CLUBS him down. Knight wrenches, Ziggler wrenches back, but Knight wrenches again. Ziggler ROCKS Knight with a right, ROCKS him again, then scrapes laces off Knight’s face. Fans rally and duel, Ziggler ROCKS Knight with haymakers. Ziggler brings Knight around to scrape with laces again, then he back suplexes. Knight lands on his feet, shoves Ziggler to buckles, then JUMPING NECKBREAKERS! Cover, TWO! Knight clutches ribs, still not 100% from the Last Man Standing. Ziggler escapes the scoop and rolls up, TWO!

Knight clotheslines Ziggler out of the ring! Fans fire up but Knight has to catch his breath. Ziggler gets back in, POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Ziggler gets away and NXT goes picture in picture.

Knight winches and grits his teeth, still hurting. Ziggler is down and the ring count is climbing. Knight goes out to bring Ziggler up, but Ziggler RAMS him into the apron! Ziggler pushes Knight in, stalks behind him, abut Knight fires off haymakers! Knight whips, Ziggler kicks the back drop then mule kicks the ribs! Knight drops to his knees and crawls to ropes. Ziggler storms over but the ref has him stay back. The ref checks Knight but Knight says he’s still in this. So Ziggler rakes Knight’s eyes! The ref reprimands and Ziggler lets off to then stand on the ribs! The ref counts, Ziggler lets off at 4.

Ziggler paces and soaks up the cheers and jeers before bringing Knight up. Ziggler has Knight in the corner, but Knight counter punches! Knight has Ziggler staggering, but Ziggler kicks the ribs again! Ziggler drags Knight up, clawing at his forehead. The ref reprimands but Ziggler wraps on a chinlock. Ziggler leans his weight on the hold and Knight endures as NXT returns to single picture. Fans continue to duel, Knight fights up and has Ziggler as a backpack! Ziggler claws Knight’s face again! Ziggler dropkicks Knight into the corner! Cover, TWO! Ziggler wraps on a sleeper hold and body scissors!

Knight endures and reaches out for ropes. Fans rally up, Ziggler squeezes tight, then rakes the eyes! Knight gets a second wind and gets to his feet! Ziggler holds on, but Knight RAMS him into buckles! Knight is free but Ziggler aims from the corner! FAMOUS- POEWRBOMB! Knight counters the Famouser and fans rally up with “YEAH! YEAH!” Knight staggers over and he DECKS Ziggler! And again! Knight stomps a mudhole into Ziggler, “YEAH! YEAH! YEAH!” Knight then runs corner to corner to KNEE Ziggler down! The bad ribs hold Knight back but he still gets Ziggler up. Knight whips, scoops, POWERSLAM!

Fans fire up and Knight runs, BIG elbow drop! Cover, TWO!! We cut to the parking lot, and we see BRON BREAKKER has returned! He doesn’t care what anyone told him earlier tonight, he wants after Ziggler! Knight gets Ziggler up at the ropes, but Ziggler cheap shots Knight away. Ziggler reels Knight in but Knight RAMS Ziggler into the corner! Knight drags Ziggler up to the top rope, throws haymakers, and then climbs up to join him. Ziggler resists, throws body shots and then he headbutts Knight! Knight holds on but one more body shot takes him down! Ziggler adjusts but Knight returns in an instant! SUPERPLEX!!

Both men are down and fans fire up! Knight crawls to the cover, TWO!! Knight was so close and fans are fired up for “NXT! NXT!” Knight gets up, catches his breath, and he drags Ziggler back up. Knight manages to lift, but Roode is on the apron! Knight runs Roode off, and avoids the superkick! Torture rack, BURNING HAMMER!! Ziggler gets the ropebreak!! “This is Awesome!” as Knight gets Ziggler up! Kick, but no BFT! But no ZigZag either! Knight runs in, but is sent into buckles! SUPERKICK!! Cover, Ziggler wins!

Winner: Dolph Ziggler, by pinfall (still NXT Champion)

Roode gets in the ring to help Ziggler up, but the celebration is cut short! Here comes the Big Booty Nephew! Bron gets right in the ring with the Dirty Dawgs, but he gets a mic first. “Screw it, I’m not gonna wait! I want my rematch for that championship at Stand & Deliver!” Roode steps up, Bron DECKS him! Bron asks Ziggler, “How ’bout it, Champ?!” Ziggler stares Bron down, and holds up the belt. “Any time, any place. Stand & Deliver sounds damn good to me.” Ziggler & Roode leave, will Bron break the Show-Off’s reign at just one month?

My Thoughts:

A great NXT and with a lot of great surprises! The Mysterios showing up and taking on Legado was great stuff, as was Briggs, Brooks & Fallon helping out. I really like that we’re getting this, an eventual Rey VS Escobar match is going to be amazing stuff. At the same time, I feel like Dom should be here in NXT to really sharpen all his skills. He’s pretty good in the ring but is still a bit awkward at times, and same goes for the mic, so being in NXT would really get him to that next level. We also got really good stuff out of the ladder match qualifier. Grimes losing was quite the surprise, but it seems to feed into his own crisis of confidence story, and perhaps even into Legado VS Mysterios.

A-Kid VS Kushida was a great match, very technical and quick so a bit hard to keep up with, but it is pretty big for AK to get the win here. At the same time, AK isn’t popping into NXT just for a one-off, so getting in on the North American Championship story is great for him. And possibly it’s to make up for Vince moving Pete Dunne away and making him “Butch.” Good on Melo to take credit for that on commentary, though. Solo VS Strong is going to be a great match next week, too, and could go either way at this point.

The one real letdown of the night was Tiffany VS Sarray. I suppose a sneak attack backstage should’ve been expected of a Heel, but I feel like stopping Sarray from transforming is almost too clever for Tiffany. At least, this first time out. Let Sarray transform and win here, but then Tiffany claims some kind of controversy, they have a rematch, and then we get what we got tonight. Indi VS Persia was close to what I expected, but maybe shorter than I hoped. Indi wins with help from Dexter, but then the make-out sessions were a bit much. I’m sure we’re still getting that Mixed Tag Match I’ve been picturing, but this is a bit more NXThirsty than I expected.

We did get a good story out of the women’s title scenes, though. Shirai & KLR have a good promo together, Wendy & Dakota have a good reaction to it, and then Toxic Attraction hunting Cora after she snatched their belts was a good threat through the night. Cora getting Gigi & Jacy but then getting got by Mandy was fine stuff to set up a title match for Stand & Deliver, but I have a feeling Mandy still finds a way to win.

MizTV was a very good opening segment, especially with it creating the main event for tonight. That’s very WWE formula right there. It was a good detail to have Bron barred from the building for the majority of the night, giving Ziggler a chance to get in his first title defense that he’ll win. Knight having an encounter with Walter-Gunther backstage was a good way to plan their feud for after tonight. Maybe Gunther VS Knight is also a North American title qualifier? We do need four contenders, and we’ve only heard of two other matches. Ziggler VS Knight was a great main event, but of course Ziggler wins and Bron shows up to get his match for Stand & Deliver. Bron is going to be the fastest to get to two-time NXT Champion.

My Score: 8.3/10

Mitchell’s WWE NXT Results & Report! (6/6/23)

Who earns some Tiffy Time?



NXT White 'n' Gold Era

Only one can be The Center of the Universe!

To earn a shot at Tiffany Stratton’s NXT Women’s Championship, the Women’s Division fights in a battle royal! Who wins a golden ticket to Tiffy Time?


  • Mixed Six Tag Match: Diamond Mine VS The Schism; The Schism wins.
  • Blair Davenport VS Dani Palmer; Blair wins.
  • Baron Corbin VS Trick Williams; Corbin wins.
  • Mustafa Ali VS Joe Gacy; Ali wins.
  • Eddy Thorpe VS Damon Kemp; Thorpe wins.
  • Dabba-Kato VS SCRYPTS; Dabba wins.
  • NXT Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Battle Royal: Thea Hail wins and will challenge Tiffany Stratton for the title.


Baron Corbin arrives backstage.

The Lone Wolf stares down Tyler Bate and Eddy Thorpe, chuckles at a poster of Carmelo Hayes, then stares down Hank Walker, Tank Ledger and some of the prospects. He tells staff to hit his music and they do as told. Corbin scoffs at the rest of the posters while he makes his entrance. Fans boo as Corbin makes his way to the ring, because we all remember him going after Melo after Melo retained the title against Noam Dar. Corbin gets the mic to say, “Y’know, I never thought I’d walk back through these doors. When I got the call, I cleaned out my locker and never looked back.

“Over the next eight YEARS, I ascended to the top of Raw and SmackDown. While I was main-eventing PPVs, NXT superstars continued to get called up to the main roster. When they got there, they were full of talent and hunger. And then something changed. I wonder what it was. Now, they come up full of ego and attitude. Hell, some of ’em sit in the locker room, twiddle their thumbs on their cellphone, acting like they got nowhere better to be. They act like we should thank them for coming up to Raw and SmackDown.

“Then I walk in through these doors. I hear superstars in the back talking about their legacy, talking about how they’re the next ones to be called up. Or, they’re complaining that they haven’t been called up yet, and it’s starting to make me sick! They walk through these doors to a championship team. They have guaranteed contracts, and they’re living in a house that I built! Me and all the other OGs started in FCW, and we took this train all the way to sell out Barclays Arena, with 16,500 people! Don’t clap for that now, you’ve never done it before, get off my bandwagon.

“I come through those doors tonight, and there’s superstars can’t even look me in the eye. They don’t show me the respect that I deserve. Now I had no control over that last Draft that came up. But you can make damn sure I got control of the next, because I’m gonna make every one of those superstars regret ever signing a WWE contract! Every single one of ’em is soft, every single one of ’em is weak, and they’re sure as hell not as good as they think they are. That all lies on the champion, the NXT Champion, Carmelo Hayes. Melo walks around here like his stuff doesn’t stink. Yeah, there you go. Cheer for him. Cheer for him!

“Cuz ol’ Melo got a taste of main roster reality when I laid him out, put him down, I took his title and I stood over his body, and I held it over my head.” Wait, ILJA DRAGUNOV is here! The Czar tells Baron, “Would you please, um, give me the chance to introduce myself. My name is Ilja Dragunov.” Fans cheer and Corbin says he knows who Ilja is, but what does he want? Ilja isn’t sure about the people Corbin saw in the hall, but Ilja is here to look him in the eyes to say, he’s NOT soft and he is NOT weak. He is the most animalistic, intense man in NXT! He’s beaten everyone put in front of him, and after Battleground, he is the first man in line to face Melo for the title.

Oh, here we go. There’s the NXT arrogance. Corbin has competed in SIX WrestleMania matches, he retired THE Kurt Angle, and he is the last man to pin Roman Reigns. Fans chant “BUM ASS CORBIN!” Ilja gets it, Corbin is targeting Melo to make some kind of point. But Ilja is targeting Melo for the title. And Ilja really doesn’t care how many Manias Corbin’s been to. If Ilja must ravage Corbin with pain to get what he wants, then so be it. Corbin tells the “kid” that there is a big difference between what he wants and what he’s gonna get. Corbin jumps the line cuz he says so, cuz he’s the biggest star in the building.

Ilja says Corbin is making assumptions, but Ilja makes challenges. So why not show everyone how much of a star you are, against Ilja tonight?! Fans love the sound of that! Corbin asks Ilja really wants “a piece of this” after Battleground. Well, there’s nothing Corbin can bring as hard as Dijak did at Battleground. Ilja shows off the NASTY bruise on his hip! Corbin says that’s cute. That’s one bruise. When Corbin’s done with him, Ilja will be covered in ’em. Ilja welcomes the challenge. Fans fire up, will the Lone Wolf be sent back to the main roster with his tail between his legs?

But wait! Trick shows up to start throwing hands! Fans fire up as Trick is after Corbin, Corbin shoves him back, but Trick clotheslines Corbin out! Fans fire up as the refs back Corbin off. Will Trick get payback on Corbin for that sneak attack on Melo?


Thea Hail finishes training.

She hobbles and says she can barely feel her legs anymore. Duke Hudson finds her but Charlie Dempsey says not bad. He better see her again tomorrow. Oh he’ll see her again! And he’ll see improvement! You bring your A Game! Wait, Duke is confused, what’s going on? Dempsey & Gulak are teaching her how to crunch people! It’s firing her up! Really? Yeah, she’s got all these great grappling holds now! Wanna see? She grabs Duke’s arm in a wristlock! OW! Sorry! But it works, right? Duke says she doesn’t even like those guys! Yeah, but you just gotta give it back to ’em, y’know? Thea shouts, “I’ma kick you in the ass, professor!”

See? They love it! Well, okay, as long as she’s learning. But you can’t just “crunch” someone over the top rope. It’s a battle royal tonight! Yeah, but she can still throw people over. He believes in her, right? Y-yeah… Then let’s go! Thea is fired up, will she crunch and toss everyone else in the ring to get that golden ticket?


Bron Breakker attacks Ilja Dragunov backstage!

The Big Bad Booty Nephew tells The Czar to keep “thinking” he’s the most intense guy in NXT. If Ilja likes pain, how’s that feel? The refs back Bron off, will Dragunov have to go after him and Corbin before going after Melo?


Mixed Six Tag Match: Diamond Mine VS The Schism!

Ivy Nile has had it with Ava Raine, and by extension, the Creed Brothers and the Dyad have gotten at each other. Now things will be settled as all six get in the ring! Will Diamond Mine crush Ava, Rip Fowler & Jagger Reed under the pressure? Or will the roots of Schism’s tree only grow and spread?

NXT returns as Diamond Mine make their entrance. The teams sort out and and Julius starts against Rip. They circle, tie up, and Julius wrenches an arm. Rip whips Julius away, things speed up, and Julius drops to fireman’s carry takeover into an armlock! Rip fights free but Julius just grabs the other arm. Rip fights to his feet, CHOPS, but Julius wrenches the arm. Rip CHOPS, Julius wrenches, but then Rip pulls an ear! Tag to Jagger, the Dyad mugs Julius, and Jagger ROCKS Julius with forearms. Jagger swings again, but Julius gets around to waistlock and SLAM! Jagger fights up, but Julius SLAMS him again!

Julius keeps hold of Jagger to SLAM him again, and KNEE him in the side! Tag to Brutus, and the Creeds pinball Jagger between knees! Brutus drags Jagger up, ROCKS him, and then clamps onto another arm. Tag to Julius, they mug Jagger, but Jagger ELBOWS him away! And then DECKS him! Jagger facelocks, but Julius deadlifts from the floor! Julius stands back up, walks over, and tags in Brutus. Brutus takes the handoff, fans fire up as Brutus keeps Jagger up! Brutus tags Julius back in, takes the handoff back, and then marches around before the SLAM! And then he kips up! Fans fire up, Julius whips but Jagger reverses

Jagger runs in, MONKEY FLIPS, but Julius lands through it! And he DROPKICKS Jagger! Julius whips Jagger, Jagger reverses and CLOBBERS Julius! And Ava tags in! Ava SLAPS Julius! Ivy steps in to calm Julius down, but then Ava tags out to Rip. The Schism trolls Ivy but Julius storms up to shoot in and waistlock, for a SLAM! And then he KNEES Rip in the side! Julius headlocks, Rip powers out but Julius goes up and over and keeps moving. Brutus tags in,. Julius ducks ‘n’ dodges, Brutus AX HANDLES Rip! And then shoots around, but Rips witches. TERMAN SUPLEX, but Brutus lands on his feet!

Brutus trophy lifts Rip, to DROP him, and STANDING MOONSAULT! Fans fire up with Brutus and Julius tags back in. Brutus cross-arm SLAMS Julius onto Rip! And Then Ivy snap suplexes Brutus onto Rip! And then Julius gives Ivy a boost for a SENTON! Fans are thunderous for the Diamond Mine’s combinations, and Ivy calls out Ava! Fans want to see that, too, but NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Rip has Brutus down in a chinlock. Brutus endures, fights up, and fans rally. Brutus pries the hold open, but Rip knees low. Rip ROCKS Brutus, but Brutus ROCKS Rip! And Jagger! And Rip again! Brutus staggers along ropes, but he ELBOWS Rip away. Jagger distracts, Rip shoves Brutus into the ropes! Brutus sputters off that low hotshot, and then Ava sucker punches Ivy! Rip BLASTS Julius, too! Fans boo but Rip tags Jagger. The Dyad whip Brutus into the corner hard, then hit an ASSISTED SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Brutus survives and The Dyad is frustrated.

Jagger tags Rip back in, the Dyad stomp away on Brutus! Fans boo but The Dyad drag Brutus up. Rip fishhooks Brutus’ face, lets off as the ref counts, and fans rally up. Rip drags Brutus up, suplexes, but Brutus blocks! Brutus suplexes Rip up and over instead! Rip tags Jagger in, Jagger keeps Brutus from the corner with a SLEEPER! Brutus endures, reaches out, marches forward, and fans rally behind him. Hot tag to Julius! Julius CLOBBERS Jagger, OVERHEAD Belly2Belly for Rip! Then an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly for Jagger! And a kip up! And then an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly for Rip! Kip up, and another OVERHEAD for Jagger!

Julius just keeps going, but The Dyad go after him together! SO they get a DOUBLE OVERHEAD SUPELX! Fans are thunderous with Julius, and he runs up the corner, to DOUBLE QUEBRADA! Julius scoops Jagger but Rip makes the save. Julius kicks Rip but Rip RAMS him into the corner! Jagger hits GRIT YOUR TEETH! But Brutus runs in, BRUTUS BALL! Down goes Rip! Jagger ENZIGURIS Brutus, runs, but Julius LARIATS Jagger! Fans fire up, but Jagger SUPERKICKS back! All four men are down and the fans fire up! Ivy grins as she stares Ava down. Julius crawls, hot tag to the Diamond Pitbull!

Fans fire up and even Ava smiles. The two circle, tie up, and they start throwing forearms! Ivy dodges a lariat, KCIKS and KICKS and ROUNDHOUSES! Fans fire up as Ivy runs, and DROPKICKS! Then she runs, but Ava SCORPION KICKS! Ava scoops but Ivy slips out, DIAMOND DRAGON!! But Jagger gets Ivy! So Ivy gets HIM in the DIAMOND DRAGON!! Fans fire up but the ref says Ivy has to let off, it’s only men against men and women against women! But Ava HEADBUTTS Ivy while wearing her plastic mask!! The ref missed that dealing with Jagger! Cover, Schism wins!

Winners: The Schism, by pinfall

Ava snatches victory away from the jaws of the Diamond Pitbull, the Schism gets a big win here tonight. Will we see their roots soon bear golden fruit?


Stacks visits Tony D’Angelo in prison.

Tony’s in the orange jumpsuit as he sits down to talk with Stacks. How’s he been? Good. But guess what? Knuckles is in here! The guy who- SHH! Oh, right. But yeah, Giorgio the Whale gets Tony his paper, and the guards even pitched in so Tony could have a subscription to The Peacock so he can watch the show the next day. That’s great! It’s almost like being in a hotel. Almost. But did Stacks get any more info on this rat? Stacks says he’s put in some calls. Miss Kim Cashstashian will get them off. Whoa, gotta reword that, Stacks.

But anyhow, Tony isn’t sure how he feels with his life in the hands of Cashstashian. Tony might as well play the lottery. Stacks’ gut says it’s Gallus, they didn’t wanna face Tony & Stacks at Battleground. But they’ve got a lot of enemies. This could be Legado, or, or- Is Stacks hearing himself? He’s on a wild goose chase! You’re going around the world to go next door. Trust your gut! It’s Gallus! Get those guys for all they’re worth! Tony swears on his mother’s eyes- Oh, don’t make a threat on the phone… But okay, listen. What Joe Coffey did last week, forget about it. But 3v1 ain’t cutting it.

Then what’s Stacks to do? Visitation time is almost up, so Tony tells Stacks that he’s the Underboss, he can figure it out. Tony leaves, and it is all in Stacks’ hands now.


Robert Stone & Von Wagner go to therapy.

They’re impatiently waiting in the lobby, and Stone tells Von that he hopes this all works out. They have had quite the week trying to find the right fit. Montage: one guy skips the breathing exercise to get to the anger issue. Von says he has no anger issue. But anger management is nothing to be ashamed of. Learning to control it can actually help him. Von tells this guy to GFY. Stone apologizes and pays in cash. Von says that guy was a jackass! Oh and the other guy? Von had that guy up against a wall! Stone again paid for that in cash. Von is on the verge of a breakthrough, so long as he gives things a chance.

One guy comes out crying. Von sighs. He doesn’t wanna do this now. Oh, c’mon, Von! NO! Didn’t you see that guy crying? Von is not a crier! What do you think Von’s dad would think seeing this? Von is NOT walking through this door. But then the therapist walks out. A very lovely lady therapist… Well, maybe Von can give this a shot. But alone. Von winks before the door closes. Is therapy going to be the solution after all?


Blair Davenport VS Dani Palmer!

Who was the assailant of the NXT Women’s Division? It was BLAIR, Dani! It was Blair all along! And now that she’s back, will she tear through what’s left of the roster to get at the title? Or can Dani avenge Sol Ruca, Nikkita Lyons and everyone else Blair terrorized?

The bell rings and Dani rushes in! They tie up, go around, and Blair puts Dani on ropes. The ref counts, Dani turns nit around but Blair turns it back around. Blair lets off at 4, to SLAP Dani! Dani SLAPS Blair! Blair kicks low, whips her to a corner, but Dani goes up and over and handsprings away. Blair chases, but runs into headscissors! Blair blocks to SLAM Dani down, then BOOT her out of the ring! Blair goes out after Dani, puts her in the ring, then CLOBBERS her! Fans rally for Dani but Blair drags Dani up to whip. Blair KNEES low, gut wrenches and GUTBUSTERS! Then she throws Dani into ropes!

Fans rally for Dani as she sputters, but Blair clamps on with a waistlock. Blair SLAMS Dani, holds onto the waistlock, and squeezes with a rear bearhug. Fans rally as Dani fights up, and she fights free with elbows! Dani switches, rolls up, TWO! Blair kicks Dani low! Fans boo but Blair whips Dani to kitchen sink knee! Blair soaks up the heat, she KNEES Dani in the side, then stalks her around the way. Blair kicks Dani around, KICKS her in the side, but Dani grits her teeth. Dani blocks the next kick, but Blair ROCKS her with a forearm! Dani hits back, kicks low, and UPPERCUTS! And CHOPS! And DOUBLE KNEES! Cover, TWO!

Dani goes to a corner and climbs up. Blair grabs Dani’s hair to TOSS her to the mat! Blair then sits Dani up, has the wrists, KAMI-GOYE! And then, FALCON ARROW! Cover, Blair wins!

Winner: Blair Davenport, by pinfall

Blair satiates her appetite for violence, and says she has just put the entire roster on notice! Will even Tiffany Stratton have to beware the heir?


Dana Brooke arrives?!

Another callback to NXT is here, and she wants in on the battle royal. There’s a lot of buzz in NXT now, so Dana will make her own opportunities when she is the last woman standing! Will the Flex Appeal grab that golden ticket for herself?


Backstage interview with Tiffany Stratton.

McKenzie Mitchell says the battle royal was Tiffany’s idea, but now Dana Brooke is here and wants in on the match. Tiffany stops McKenzie there. Tiffany would say she’s shocked, but she’s not. Of course Dana wants a shot at Tiffany’s title. Come one, come all. Sometimes the title makes the superstar, but in this case, Tiffany has made this title the most desirable belt in all of the WWE. And every single woman in that battle royal is envious of what Tiffany has. Are you kidding me? NO ONE was happy Tiffany won. But Tiffany has no problem proving she’s in a class of her own. So who does she think wins tonight?

“TBH, Lyra is the only one I can see pulling it off. I mean, she pushed me at Battleground. Like, damn, gurl, you were almost at the Tiffy Top. But it won’t matter, because the result will stay the same on the other side: And still NXT Women’s Champion, Tiffany Stratton! I just love the sound of that. Tootles.”


Baron Corbin VS Trick Williams!

The Lone Wolf is looking down on the new generation of NXT, and Trick Willie isn’t gonna stand for it! Will Trick represent for Trick Melo Gang? Or will Corbin bring about the End of Days for this new “arrogant” era?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally up, the two tie up but Corbin knees low. Corbin CLUBS Trick, stalks him to ropes, and puts him in a corner. Corbin throws body shots and CLUBS Trick again, to then whip corner to corner. Trick hits buckles hard, and then Corbin CLOBBERS Trick! Fans boo but Corbin stands Trick up to throw hands. Corbin CHOKES Trick on the ropes, lets off at 4, and argues with the ref. Trick drags himself up, but Corbin shoves him into ropes to CLUB him in the back! Corbin taunts Trick, stomps him, and then swings, but Trick counter punches! Trick fires off fist after fist, but Corbin knees low again!

Corbin CLUBS Trick, but fans taunt “BUM ASS CORBIN!” Corbin puts Trick in a corner, whips him corner to corner, and runs in to SPLASH! Trick sputters but Corbin stands him up. Corbin talks trash on Trick, but Trick ROCKS him with forearms! Fans fire up and Trick runs, but Corbin CLOBBERS Trick again! Corbin looms over Trick and he taunts the fans. Fans boo, Corbin whips Trick corner to corner again, then runs in, but Trick dodges! Trick fires off fast hands! The ref counts, Trick stomps away, but Trick lets off, and dodges Corbin to DROPKICK him! Corbin staggers, into a POP-UP HAYMAKER!

Corbin falls out of the ring and Trick dares him to come back for more as NXT goes picture in picture.

Trick storms out after Corbin, drags him up, and RAMS him into barriers. Trick stalks Corbin around the way, CHOPS him against barriers, and then brings him up. Trick RAMS Corbin into barriers, the fans rally up, and Trick CHOPS Corbin again! Trick refreshes the ring count, puts Corbin back in, but Corbin kicks the ropes! The ropes get Trick low, and Corbin fires off fast hands! The ref counts, Corbin lets off and he has Trick in a corner. Corbin reels Trick in for a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Corbin scowls as he looms over Trick. Corbin clamps on a half nelson and chinbar, and he thrashes Trick around.

Trick endures, fans rally up, and Trick fights up to throw body shots. Corbin shoves Trick away, Trick ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Corbin! Cover, TWO!  Trick fires off on Corbin at the ropes, drags him up, brings him in and suplexes! Corbin writhes, Trick pushes him down, and Trick rains down forearms! Then Trick covers, TWO! Trick clamps on with a headlock and he grinds Corbin down. Corbin fights up, and hits another BIG back suplex! Fans rally while both men are down, and Corbin crawls over to Trick. Corbin hammers away with elbows! Corbin hears the fans rallying, and he clamps onto Trick with the chinbar half nelson.

Trick endures as Corbin leans on the hold. Trick fights up, but Corbin wrangles him back down! Corbin thrashes Trick as NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally for Trick and Trick fights up again. Trick arm-drags free, runs in and ROCKS Corbin! Corbin flops to the apron, Trick BLASTS him off it! Trick goes out to SMACK Corbin off the desk! Corbin wobbles and flops over, Trick runs in, but Corbin moves! Trick knees only the desk! Corbin has his opening, he punches away on the knee! The ref has the ring count climbing as Corbin pulls on the arm. Corbin lets off, refreshes the count, and he drags Trick up.

Corbin RAMS Trick into the steel steps, making sure those knees hit hard! Trick writhes and clutches the leg while fans boo and gives Corbin thumbs down. Corbin puts Trick in the ring, and he stomps away on the bad leg! Fans chant “CORBIN SUCKS!” but Corbin stands Trick up to whip and SPINEBUSTER! Corbin has the leg for a HALF CRAB! Trick endures, fans rally, and Trick reaches out! Trick gets the ROPEBREAK! Corbin lets go fast, Trick kicks him with the good leg! But Corbin grabs that leg, so Trick EDDY GORDO KICKS!

Trick fires body shots and counter punches! Trick has Corbin in a corner and he fires off! Corbin shoves Trick, Trick comes back to DROPKICK! And then wrench and JUMP KNEE! Trick runs to FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE! Fans fire up with Trick and he runs in again, SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO!! Corbin survives but Trick stalks him to ropes. Corbin elbows low, choke grips, and CHOKE- NO, Trick fights out, EDDY GORDO KICK 2! Trick runs, but into DEEP SIX! Cover, TWO!! Trick survives and Corbin is beside himself! Fans rally as Corbin storms up on Trick. “This is Awesome!” as Corbin puts Trick up top.

Corbin climbs up but Trick CLUBS away on him! Trick sends Corbin away, hops off the corner, but Corbin returns. Trick dodges to POST Corbin! Trick fires off big haymakers! Fans fire up and Trick DECKS Corbin! Trick wants more, he waits on Corbin to stand, Trick spins but the leg gives out! Corbin kicks low, reels Trick in, END OF DAYS! Cover, Corbin wins!

Winner: Baron Corbin, by pinfall

Trick fought valiantly, but one miscalculation cost him. Corbin says he’s going back to SmackDown to go qualify for Money in the Bank, then he’ll be back next Tuesday. Will Melo be back to get back at Corbin directly?


NXT presents an all-new Hard Hitting Home Truths.

Nathan Frazer welcomes us back to HHHT. Now we’re nine days removed from Battlegrounds, and the landscape never stops shifting. Tiffany is the new Women’s Champion, Wes Lee is breaking every single record in the book, Ilja Dragunov is not human–though that’s not exactly news–and we have Free Agents popping up left, right and middle. But most importantly, Noam Dar has a new pack o’ friends who helped him hold onto his “precious baby,” the Heritage Cup. They were useful enough to help him retain, but not enough to gain another title, as “a couple of fine, handsome gentlemen” in Nathan and Dragon Lee saw to that.

However, Noam is still Heritage Cup Champion, and while Nathan is not really fond of this new Supernova group, he and everyone else will just have to “deal with it.” Speaking of, here is a special guest who feels the same way about Dar as he does. That’s right, HHHT is going global with their “Senior International Correspondent,” Mr. Dragon Lee. Dragon appears on set and he says mucho gracias, and (in Spanish) for this opportunity to be part of this premier show. Uh, si! Dragon does have in his hand a list of the top five names for Dar’s new super group.

CINCO: Two Awful Chat Show Hosts, Plus Two. QUATRO: The Oro Mensah Experience. TRES: The Jakara Jackson Five! Well, minus one. DOS: The Long Lost Legend of Lash Legend. And numero UNO: Noam’s Rent-a-Friends! Nathan says number one is the best because it is the truest. And after Battleground, Dar is running out of surprises, and needs new challengers. The hard-hitting truth here is that Dar is fragile and he knows it. Nathan beat Dar in a regular match, so here’s a proposal: Dar VS Frazer for the Cup next week! And Dragon will return the favor by being in Nathan’s corner!

Frazer thanks Dragon for that, and so, they will love ya and leave ya. They’ve been Nathan Frazer and Dragon Lee, and Dar… Ball’s in your court. Peace. Will the British Rocket get his shot at the Cup? Or will he not be able to reach the Scottish Supernova?


Backstage interview with Mustafa Ali.

McKenzie is with The Beacon, nothing how he shocked the entire world when he showed up during Bate & Wes VS The Dyad. What brings him here to NXT? He is Free Agent Ali, baby! He can show up wherever he wants! And now, Ali is the one riding the storm. The next chapter Ali will write is titled, “Mustafa Ali Finally Wins Gold.” Then before he faces off against Joe Gacy- Wait, Wes Lee walks in. Wes has to let everyone know how excited he is that Ali is here! And talking about gold, uh, well Wes wants to make sure- Ali stops Wes there. Don’t do that. Don’t hand Ali a chance. Ali wants to earn it, like Wes did!

And that starts with Gacy. Maybe down the road, it will be Ali VS Lee for the title. That is, if Wes is still champ by then. Jokes aside, Wes wishes Ali luck, but will The Beacon shine bright on the white ‘n’ gold brand? Or will The Schism’s roots continue to grow tonight?

Mustafa Ali VS Joe Gacy!

NXT returns as Mr. Inclusion makes his entrance. The bell rings, the two circle, and they tie up. They break, and then tie up again. Ali headlocks, Gacy throws hands but Ali ROCKS Gacy! Ali headlocks, Gacy powers out and then CLOBBERS Ali! Fans rally as Gacy fires off on Ali in the corner. Gacy whips corner to corner, runs in, but Ali goes up and over! Things speed up,. Ali ducks ‘n’ dodges and RANAS! Fans fire up as Gacy flounders. Ali storms up but Gacy dumps him out! Ali skins the cat, shoulders in, and ROCKS Gacy again! Ali slingshots but Gacy SHOVES him down! Fans boo as Ali crashes to the floor!

Gacy goes out after Ali, drags him back into the ring, and then hurries to cover, TWO! Gacy clamps onto Ali with a chinlock but fans rally. Ali fights with body shots, and a CHOP! Ali whips, Gacy reverses and reels Ali in, URENAGE! Cover, TWO! Ali is hanging tough but Gacy clamps on with a chinbar. Fans rally as Ali endures. Ali fights up, throws body shots, but Gacy CLUBS him o the back. Gacy back suplexes, Ali lands on his feet, but Gacy DDTS! Cover, TWO! Ali survives and goes to a corner but Gacy goes to the opposite. Gacy runs in, but Ali slips out and Gacy hits buckles! Ali ROUNDHOUSES, slingshots and BLOCKBUSTERS!

Fans fire up and Ali goes up the corner! Gacy hurries to ROCK Ali first! Gacy goes up after Ali, but Ali fights the superplex! Ali throws headbutts, then SMACKS Gacy off buckles! Ali stands up to SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB! Ali then skins the cat to the top rope, and fans fire up as Ali 450 SPLASHES!! Cover, ALI WINS!

But then The Dyad attacks! Rip & Jagger won’t let Ali celebrate, they stomp away while Gacy drags Ali down,. But then here come Wes Lee & Tyler Bate! They fire off, SUPERKICK Rip, Bop and BANG for Jagger! Gacy sees he’s surrounded, he turns around into a SUPERKICK from Ali! Fans fire up as the Beacon, the Big Strong Boi & The Cardiac Kid send the Schism running! Will they have to tear down The Schism’s tree before they can talk title matches?


Fallon Henley, Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs talk backstage.

Tonight, the main event is a battle royal for a shot at the women’s title. Jensen knows Fallon is ready, Fallon says she’s ready, she feels tonight is her night. But wait, Malik Blade & Edris Enofe walk up. They say Briggs & Jensen were “the ones who started all this.” Hank ‘n’ Tank fought each other to get closer, so now Malik wants to fight Edris! Fallon excuses herself to get ready, and the guys talk. Jensen says it really did work for Hank ‘n’ Tank, and Briggs says it really did work for him and Jensen. Did it really? Okay, let’s find out. What is Jensen’s favorite color? Blue. Yeah, right here on the shirt.

Okay, okay, that was an easy one. Edris then asks Jensen when is Briggs’ birthday. Jensen thinks back… March 5th. BINGO! See? They are good! Malik asks Edris if he knows his birthday. But then Hank ‘n’ Tank walk in, they’re talking country songs. Hank’s a Boy Named Sue guy all the way. Right! Johnny Cash is the man! But Tank likes the modern stuff, like Taylor Swift. Bingo! Tank is a big T. Swifty boy. What the what? But Tank says after Fallon wins that battle royal, let’s all go get some brewskis. Now he’s talking their language! But uh, do Malik & Edris want in? They’ll catch up later. Alright! Laters!

Malik asks Edris if he’s thinking what Malik is thinking. Well after this past week, clearly not! But then Gallus walk up. Don’t worry, lads. It doesn’t matter if you’re on the same page or not, because you’d never beat Gallus for the titles. Gallus Boys On Top, no one else has to play stupid games. Malik nods to Edris and Edris gives in. They’re doing this next week, huh? OH YEAH! Malik VS Edris is happening! Edris accepts his fate, and asks his phone when IS Malik’s birthday.


Backstage interview with Noam Dar and his crew.

McKenzie asks the Heritage Cup Champion about Nathan Frazer’s challenge. And also, what is up with his group? Oh, his group? No, this is THEIR group. When you’re the Supernova, you have to be surrounded by stars, and that is what he has here. This is a collection of shooting stars with unlimited potential! Starting with Dar’s main man, Mensah. Oro is underappreciated, undervalued, but no more! Dar is the one who believed in Oro, got him on a premium event, and has Oro flying in a new stratosphere. And that’s just the beginning. We have Action Ms. Jakara Jackson, a world class athlete who competed on the Titan Gams! And now she’s a titan in this game!

Jakara says she’s sugar, spice, and everything that ain’t so nice. Heard that? And last but not least. Lash THEE Legend! She will beat you physically, emotionally, mentally, she is a GOAT in the making! One of one! Does McKenzie not know what’s going on right here? The screen can’t handle all this brightness, they’re shinin’ shinin’. Five trophies, one picture, okay? But then about Nathan’s challenge. Ugh. If he wants a cup match, remember two things: Dar is NEVER losing the Cup; and there is no stopping… The Meta Four. CHECK PLEASE, bye bye!


Eddy Thorpe VS Damon Kemp!

The Alpha Wolf won once before, but it didn’t humble the Golden Gopher one bit. Will this be a clean sweep? Or will Kemp make Eddy feel like trash, and then make him pick it up?

NXT returns and Kemp makes his entrance. The bell rings, the two tie up, and they go around. Kemp puts Thorpe on the ropes, the ref counts, and Kemp lets off with a shove. Thorpe comes back, arm-drags, headlocks and hits the takeover. Kemp keeps his shoulder up and fights up, but Thorpe holds onto the headlock. Kemp lifts, but Thorpe still holds on! Kemp throws body shots, powers out, but Thorpe reverses the whip to SPINNING CROSSBODY! Direct hit, Thorpe drags Kemp around by his legs, but Kemp kicks free. Thorpe runs up to BOOT Kemp to a corner! Thorpe storms up but into a BOOT from Kemp!

Thorpe CHOPS in return! Thorpe whips, Kemp reverses, but Thorpe goes up, only to get caught! ROLLING DEATH VALLEY! Cover, TWO! Kemp stomps away on Thorpe, drags him up, but Thorpe CHOPS! Kemp ducks the next chop to RAM low, UPPERCUT, and shove, to then OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Fans rally, Kemp stalks Thorpe, and Kemp drops elbow after elbow! Kemp scrapes his sole off Thorpe’s face, then clamps on with a chinlock. But Thorpe fights with elbows! Kemp still hits an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Kemp talks trash, stomps Thorpe, and then pulls on Thorpe in a chinlock stretch.

Fans rally for “EDDY! EDDY!” but Kemp bends him back! Thorpe fights, but Kemp body scissors to keep Thorpe down. Fans still rally, Thorpe fights up, and Thorpe throws body shots! Thorpe is free, he bobs ‘n’ weaves and throws more shots! Thorpe CHOPS and COHPS and whips, to CLOBBER kemp! And DECK him! Kemp gets up, Thorpe blocks, SOBATS, and PELES! Thorpe runs, to ELBOW DROP! Cover, ROPEBREAK!! Kemp survives but Thorpe is on him. Kemp wrenches, Thorpe switches, they run into the ref! Kemp gets a cheap shot in, but Thorpe switches on Kemp to GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, Kemp’s foot is on the ropes, but the ref misses it! Thorpe wins!!

Winner: Eddy Thorpe, by pinfall

Kemp complains, he says Thorpe is winning by cheating again! The ref says the decision is final, but are we going to get a round three out of these two?


Gigi Dolin is on the phone.

She talks with her brother Miles and says this is her chance to finally be NXT Women’s Champion. The Weaponized Steel Cage aside, Gigi isn’t going to let anything stop her. She’ll be fine, he just needs to stay out of trouble, okay? Love you, bye. Kiana James walks over and says that’s the “before” phone call. Can’t wait to hear the “after.” Sorry, she came up short again. But they’re used to it. Oh so that’s how Gigi sounds to Kiana? Kiana tells Gigi not to put unrealistic ideas in her brother’s head, like her winning the battle royal. An outcast, with Gigi’s background and emotional instability, will always fall short.

Gigi would rather have her background, as bad as it was, over being a stuck-up elitist like Kiana. Gigi can’t wait to see the smug look on Kiana’s face as she sends her sailing over the top rope and wins. But then Dabba-Kato walks past and everyone clams up. Will Dabba destroy Scrypts for saving Axiom?


Dabba-Kato VS SCRYPTS!

NXT returns as Reggie- er, Scrypts makes his entrance. A wrestler by any other name still flies as high as him, but will he be able to get up and over the mountain of a main before him?

The bell rings, Scrypts dodges a lariat to mule kick, but Dabba barely budges! Scrypts throws a haymaker, but Dabba barely flinches. Scrypts fires more shots, but Dabba grabs him! Scrypts breaks free, runs, but Dabba CLOBBERS him! Dabba whips Scrypts to a corner, Scrypts goes up to AX HANDLE! Scrypts keeps moving, he kicks and CHOPS and runs, but Dabba BOOTS him inside out! Dabba drags Scrypts up to scoop and SLAM him! And then scoop and SLAM again! And then scoop and SLAM again! Dabba looms over Scrypts, drags him up right into a BEARHUG! Scrypts endures the squeeze, CLUBS Dabba again and again, and gets free!

Dabba wobbles but he gets Scrypts up, to TOSS him out of the ring! Scrypts tumbles to the floor, Dabba goes out after him, and drags him back up to CHOP against the desk! Dabba roars while fans boo, but he hauls Scrypts up again to scoop, but wait! AXIOM is there! Where’d he come from/ Dabba SHOVES Axiom down, puts Scrypts in the ring, and storms up to grab Scrypts with both hands. But Axiom is up top, he leaps, Dabba dodges, and then chases Axiom off. Dabba turns around, into Scrypts’ SLINGSHOT ELBOW! Dabba staggers around, he rushes in but into buckles! Scrypts table tops Dabba to cover, SCRYPTS WINS!!

Winner: SCRYPTS, by pinfall

But Dabba drags Scrypts right up for a TOSS! And he SWATS Axiom out of the sky! Dabba SLAMS Axiom onto Scrypts! Fans boo as Dabba looms over them both. Will nothing stop Dabba from storming his way up to a title?


The Schism regroups backstage.

Gacy is furious! “This phony friendship of Wes and Tyler makes me sick! It’s as pathetic as Ali’s positive mental attitude drivel! Next week, we will expose this union of convenience!” Rip says yes, they will! But don’t forget that tonight, The Schism reminded everyone of their strength. They secured a great win over Diamond Mine. Yes, that they did. They’ve pulled their weight, they’ve shown the world what The Schism can be. Gacy, however, has fallen short. He fell short tonight and lost at Battleground. He must reflect and rectify. Ava says one root cannot stabilize an entire tree, no matter how strong it is. Jagger says next week, they have his back.


Mustafa Ali regroups with Tyler Bate and Wes Lee backstage.

He appreciates them having his back, and Wes says it was them returning the favor. And Bate says next week, in a Six Man Tag, they’ll tear “that rotten Schism tree” out, roots and all. Wes tells Ali that Bate says stuff like that, just roll with it. Well, okay, that’s great, but Ali feels like there’s still some magic between Wes and Bate. At Battleground, it was all about the spirit of competition. And in a Triple Threat, luck is just as important as skill. They love this! They love competition! Everyone wants to see it again, and this time, it can be 1v1! Bate says it has crossed his mind. But he doesn’t want to jeopardize the friendship.

Wes says with Bate coming to him face to face on it now, he respects it. They secret handshake, Bate says that’s Wes’ weird thing you gotta roll with. Well, okay. Ali will be on SmackDown this Friday for an MITB qualifier, next Tuesday is the Six Man Tag. And then the Tuesday after that, we can figure out when Bate and Wes tear the house down. They’re all for it! Is the Summer already heating up for the North American Championship?


NXT Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Battle Royal!

Tiffany Stratton truly became the Center of the Universe when she become champion, but that also means she’s surrounded on all sides by those aiming for her belt. Who wins here to be the one with the golden ticket to Tiffany’s first title defense?

NXT returns and Roxanne Perez makes her entrance to join an already packed ring. And last but not least, Dana Brooke makes her entrance! The Flex Appeal is here as a Free Agent, will she be the wild card that wins it all? The bell rings, and the brawl is on! Cora of course goes after Roxie, but Dana helps Valentina Feroz fight Jakara Jackson!

Gigi drags Kiana up and over to join her! They brawl on the apron!

Fans fire up as Gigi UPPERCUTS Kiana down! But then Kiana kicks Gigi’s legs out! Gigi tumbles and hits the steel steps, then the floor! Kiana ELIMINATES Gigi! Kiana tells Gigi to go call her little brother. Jacy stomps Tatum, Lash fires off hands on Kelani Jordan but Kelani dodges, comes back, only to be clotheslined out to the apron!

Fallon puts Jakara out, fires hands, but Jakara HOTSHOTS! Oro says good work, but Fallon BOOTS Jakara!

Oro catches Jakara again, but then Thea hurries over! Thea SPRINGBOARD TRUST FALLS Oro and Jakara down! Thea ELIMINATES Jakara, but she is safe cuz she went under the top rope! Lash slides out to go after Thea, but ends up in a KIMURA! Lash scoops Thea, and SNAKE EYES her off the steel steps! The ref reprimands but there’s no disqualifications in such a match. Lash leaves Thea behind, only for Feroz & Leon to go after her! She BOOTS them away, but Leon gives Feroz the boost to RANA Lash out! Lash stays on the apron, fires back, but Leon ELBOWS Lashl! Leon goes up and out to go after Lash!

Las Latinas trip and DOUBLE BOOT Lash to ELIMINATE her! They celebrate, but then Lash & Jakara YANK them both off the apron to ELIMINATE them!! And now they brawl! Oro shouts for help, but the battle rages on in and outside the ring as NXT goes picture in picture.

Dana brawls with Cora, Dana BOOTS Cora, and Roxie stomps Jacy. Tatum brawls with Fallon, Elektra has Lyra in a corner. Cora fights off Dana and Kiana while Elektra digs a boto in on Lyra. Roxie throws Jacy up and out but Jacy holds on to fight her off. Lyra scoops Elektra?! What strength! But Elektra lands safe on the apron and tries to drag Lyra up and over with her! Lyra resists, throws elbows, and Elektra wobbles! Lyra WRECKS Elektra with a dropkick and ELIMINATES her! Tatum SLAPS Dana but Dana fires off forearms on her! Cora and Jacy mug Lyra, Kiana keeps on Roxie, and Fallon tires to help Dana.

Tatum fights them off, Dana DECKS Fallon, and then Tatum ROCKS Dana! Tatum bumps Dana off buckles, stomps away, and Cora stomps away on Lyra. Fallon bumps Jacy off buckles, stomps away, and Roxie holds onto ropes as Kiana tries to dump her out. Tatum and Dana brawl more, Dana kicks Tatum down, and NXT returns to single picture. Blair Davenport appears? She wasn’t officially in this match, is she going to insert herself into it? Roxie UPPERCUTS Kiana in a corner, she dodges Jacy to send her into Kiana, then UPPERCUTS them both! Roxie snarls, but Cora grabs her former friend, only for Roxie to turn it around! RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP!

Blair taunts Roxie, who was one of her targets, so Roxie goes out after her! THESZ PRESS and fast hands! Blair shoves Roxie away, whips, but Roxie reverses to send Blair into the apron!

Even Haley & Hanna Cavinder, NXT’s newest NIL prospects, are here to celebrate with Thea! Will Chase U finally have some gold thanks to their ultimate underdog?


NXT Media catches Bron Breakker as he is leaving the building.

NXT Media asks him why he attacked Ilja Dragunov. Why? He isn’t gonna let Ilja spit out garbage about being the most intense guy in the WWE. Bron is gonna hold everyone accountable, from top to bottom. And speaking of the top, how about the new WWE World Heavyweight Champion, Seth Freakin’ Rollins? The workhorse of the WWE? How about he proves it. Rollins knows how things are done in NXT cuz he was the first-ever NXT Champion! And Bron was the most DOMINANT NXT Champion ever! So Rollins should come back to NXT to put the World Heavyweight Championship on the line… against Bron? Will the Visionary accept that challenge?

My Thoughts:

A great episode for NXT here and we’re in some exciting times right now. Corbin isn’t usually must-see but he did show up last week so we gotta know what that’s about. He of course goes with the usual trope of “this generation doesn’t appreciate anything, they don’t understand,” which oddly was very much where they had JBL going with all his promos when he was Corbin’s manager. But I like that Dragunov got in Corbin’s face, and that Trick Williams took the fight to Corbin. I think tonight was the first time I heard a “This is Awesome!” chant during a Corbin match, but he and Trick were great out there. Corbin of course wins, he needs momentum going towards Melo and the title.

Bron attacking Dragunov was quite the surprise, but it seems the next chapter for him is to double down on the aggression and go after everyone who claims to be better at the things he claims to be. Calling out Rollins was an even bigger surprise, but I would love seeing Rollins having a return to NXT, as I know the live audience there would love seeing it. Could these “callbacks” and callouts be how NXT brute forces its way to being the third brand once and for all?

That question aside, great stuff building with The Schism and the North American Championship. Really good Mixed Six, and I loved that string of human weapon moves from Diamond Mine, especially Ivy suplexes Brutus. But of course The Schism cheats a win in that one. Ali VS Gacy was surprisingly short, but I suppose it builds towards story on both ends. Gacy feels like he’s letting the team down but they’re still standing with him, and Ali seems to be literally match making. The Six Man of Ali, Bate & Wes VS Schism is going to be great, and I bet we get Bate VS Wes on TV since Great American Bash is so far away still.

We got good matches out of Thorpe VS Kemp and Dabba-Kato VS SCRYPTS. A little surprised Thorpe won again with some controversy, I would’ve thought they’d go the other way and have Kemp win by controversy. And in Dabba VS Scrypts, I should’ve figured Axiom would show up. Scrypts gets the win but Dabba has the last laugh, so I sense a handicap match in the future. WWE has done 2 Faces VS 1 Heel before, but it never felt like it was a situation where the Heel was really so much more powerful. In this case, it will work because Dabba is as big as Scrypts and Axiom combined.

Good prison visitation promo, especially that Kardashian joke. Stacks keeps saying it’s Gallus but that just means it isn’t Gallus. But Tony is giving him permission to do what he needs to in order to bring Gallus down, I wonder if Stacks recruits people to the D’Angelo Family for a Six Man Tag. Also, good stuff out of the tag division with everyone doing the mind meld and irritating Malik. Malik VS Edris will be a fun match, who knows how that goes. I feel like NXT could even be building things to a massive NXT Tag Team Championship match for Great American Bash, like the Ladder Fatal 4 Ways of old.

Hard Hitting Home Truths was alright, but those names Dragon Lee came up with for Dar’s group felt more like something HBK and Road Dogg would come up with. But Dar and his group had a good promo in return, and their name, “The Meta Four” is much better than those five names. Frazer VS Dar is going to be great stuff, but with just Dragon Lee, I don’t see Frazer having a chance with Oro, Jakara and Lash all out there. But in tonight’s main event, it looks like they could’ve been building some women’s tag feuds. Lash & Jakara went after Yulisa & Valentina, that could be some good stuff, and we could see Yulisa & Valentina side with Dragon & Frazer as their own quartet.

And speaking of that battle royal, good promo from Gigi and Kiana beforehand, and same for Thea’s promo earlier on. Gigi and Kiana feuding seems to be the next move, helping Gigi build up momentum while Tiffany takes care of her first defense. Roxie brawling with Blair made sense, but I did not see Tatum joining Team Blair. Maybe Dani helps Roxie against them since she was also a target, and also lost to Blair tonight. Great moving of pieces to have Thea out of commission until the end and then finish it up with a big win over Dana and Cora. Thea got that like, Lex Luger beat Yokozuna celebration, where even future superstars, Haley & Hanna Cavinder, got to show up for it.

Now, Thea and Tiffany are going to have an awesome build to their match, they’re going to have an awesome match, but with this being Tiff’s first defense and there being the bigger Chase U story, I don’t see Thea winning. If only NXT had a women’s midcard title, Thea and a few other names could be fighting for that. Just not sure what to name it, as the WWE already uses the phrases Intercontinental, United States and North American, and they wouldn’t want to copy AEW’s International Championship. WWE hasn’t had a Television Championship in 20 years, so giving that concept to the women’s division would be pretty cool.

My Score: 8.8/10
