Amale VS Xia Brookside!

The French Hope was skeptical of the respect the spoiled second generation superstar showed her, but she still accepted this tiebreaker rematch. Will Amale take the win and head up the ranks? Or will Xia have quite the surprise in store for us all?

The bell rings and fans jeer, “Xia Sucks!” Xia and Amale tie up, Xia knees low and the fists start flying already! Xia kicks Amale to a corner, whips her to ropes, but Amale hurdles and runs Xia over! Things speed up, Amale ducks and whips but catches Xia’s crossbody for a SLAM! Amale then runs to rolling senton and basement dropkick! Xia scrambles to ropes while Amale fires up. Fans rally behind Amale as she CLUBS Xia down! Amale then stands Xia up to KNEE her low and hard! Amale gets Xia back up, BUTTERFLY SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and Amale keeps Xia. Amale scoops but Xia slips off and gets to a corner.

Amale runs in but into a DOUBLE STOMP! Xia is frustrated and she kicks and stomps Amale! Fans still jeer while Xia grits her teeth and stomps Amale more. Xia stands on Amale at the ropes and double stomps her, then stomps all over Amale’s back. The ref reprimands and Xia tells her to leave her alone. Xia stomps Amale to a corner, RAMS into her, then drags her up to bump off buckles. Xia RAMS into Amale again, then runs in for BLINDSIDE METEORA! Cover, TWO! Fans rally but Xia brings Amale up to snapmare and PENALTY KICK! Cover, ONE! Xia is furious about that, and she hip drops Amale down.

Xia pulls Amale’s arms back into a CAMEL CLUTCH! Amale endures, gets an arm free, but Xia CLUBS her down! Xia locks the arm back up but Amale continues to endure. Fans rally, Amale powers up to get her arms free and carry Xia as a backpack! BACKPACK SENTON! Fans fire up while Amale gets back to her feet. Amale counter punches Xia, then again! Amale ducks the kick to CLOBBER Xia! Amale starts to rally, kicks low and runs, KNEE LIFT! Fans stay fired up with Amale as she NORTHERN LIGHTS! Bridging cover, TWO! Xia escapes but fans still rally behind the French Hope! Amale reels Xia in and hooks the leg, but Xia sunset flips!

Xia gets the legs, turns Amale, but Amale powers out! Xia tumbles to ropes, and she gets to a corner. Anale runs in, blocks the boot, and KNEES Xia back! Amale goes side to side, but Xia dodges! Amale is furious and she follows Xia out, to BOOT her against the barriers! Fans fire up as Amale puts Xia back in, but wait! Someone attacks from the crowd! This mystery woman got a cheap shot in, then she CLOBBERS Amale with a clothesline! Fans boo but there’s nothing that can be done! Xia puts Amale in the ring, she grabs the arms, BROKEN WINGS! Cover, Xia wins!

Winner: Xia Brookside, by pinfall

Xia holds up the L with her finger and her thumb, but clearly her daddy got her an insurance policy. Just who was that helping Xia? She gets in the ring with Xia to celebrate! What will Xia and her new little friend do here in NXT UK in order to make Xia a champion?


Isla Dawn speaks.

Or rather, she sings “Meiko~” as she sets candles down by the stolen NXT UK Women’s Championship belt. “I have something that belongs to you. Oh, y’see, I’ve been listening. And it appears the bond between the two of you is quite unbreakable. But I have a plan. Meiko, there’s something I want from you. There’s something I need. And if you ever want to see your championship again, I think you’ll do exactly what I ask. Or else.” Isla blows out the candles, is she going to extinguish Meiko’s light one way or another?


NXT UK superstars discuss Dragunov VS Strong.

Amale says Strong is “going to have a taste of what we are worth here. And what better man to show that to him than the champion himself, Ilja Dragunov.” Nathan Frazer knows Dragunov “is a different animal.” After his match with the champ, Frazer’s a fan. And as a fan, Frazer knows this match is going to be unreal, hard-hitting, and brutal. Emilia McKenzie knows Strong VS Ilja is “going to be absolutely incredible.” It’ll do wonders for the NXT UK brand. A-Kid says if there is one man who can match Dragunov’s intensity, it is Strong. But he is hyped. Who wouldn’t be? The amount A-Kid has for both men is huge, and would love to get another match for that title against either one.

Tyler Bate says this could be the most ferocious match NXT UK has seen. Seven says if he was a fan, he’d buy a ticket. He might still. But Jordan Devlin doesn’t care one way or another. It doesn’t matter if it’s Dragunov or Strong, the Irish Ace is going to be breathing down that man’s neck. Czar of NXT UK VS Savior of the Backbreaker happens next week!


Ashton Smith w/ Oliver Carter VS Trent Seven w/ Tyler Bate!

The Hottest Tag Team Under the Sun is halfway to earning another NXT UK Tag Team Championship match after the shocker Carter pulled off over the Big Strong Boy. But will the Prestige be able to pull his weight? Or will the Artful Dodger really do anything he has to in order to keep these titles?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally and duel, Seven and Smith tie up, are in a deadlock, but then break. They go again, Smith uses height for leverage but fans sing for “Oh~ Trent Seven Army!” Seven starts to push Smith back, but Smith powers through to put Seven on the ropes. The ref counts and Smith lets off clean. Seven pushes Smith so they tie up again. Seven headlocks, Smith powers out, but Seven rams him. Smith rebounds to run Seven over! But Seven grabs Smith’s foot to keep him from running again. Smith throws down hands to get free, then runs, but Seven drops and sets up.

Smith whips the back drop away, Seven CROSSBODIES! Seven gets up but Smith blocks the hip toss to scoop and pop Seven up! Seven slips out to shove, big hip toss! And a scoop SLAM! Seven drops the leg, brother! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and duel as Smith gets up and staggers around. Seven follows Smith to a corner, and CHOPS him! Smith goes to another corner, kicks Seven back and EuroUppers! Seven CHOPS again! Smith staggers across the way, Seven runs corner to corner, but blocks the boot to CHOP! Seven suplexes high and hard! Cover, TWO! Seven clamps onto the arm and grinds Smith down.

Smith endures and fans continue to duel. Seven CLUBS the arm, CHOPS Smith again, then Seven CLUBS and CHOPS again! Seven CHOPS Smith off his feet, covers, TWO! Another cover, TWO! Seven hurries to go for arms but Smith fights off the cobra clutch! Smith fights up, fans rally and Smith throws elbows and forearms! Seven whips but Smith reveres, to POWERSLAM! Fans fire up with Smith’s showing of strength, and he scoops to SNAKE EYES! Smith runs and CLOBBERS Seven! Cover, TWO! Carter coaches Smith to keep him focused, and fans are dueling hard as ever!

Smith drags Seven up, CLUBS him down, then stalks him. Smith stands Seven up, whips, back drops, then omoplatas to TWEAK the arm! Cover, TWO! Seven sputters but Smith drags him back up. Smith whips Seven to a corner hard, and Seven falls from hitting buckles. Smith stands Seven back up, EuroUppers, and Seven leans against Smith to stay up. Smith whips Seven into the other corner, but Seven CHOPS back! So Smith BOOTS Seven down! Smith puts Seven up top, fires forearms and climbs up. Seven hits back, the body shots send Smith back down, and Seven leaps! But Smith catches him!?

Smith pops Seven up for the suplex! Cover, TWO! Bate gets a bit anxious while Seven is down. Smith goes up the corner, Seven hurries up to CHOP him first! Smith hits back, Seven CHOPS again! And again! Seven climbs up after Smith now, CLUBS him, and fans fire up as they brawl up top! Seven goes to the very top! He brings Smith up with him, SUPERPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Smith is still in this and fans are loving “NXT! NXT!” Bate coaches Seven, Carter coaches Smith, and both men slowly sit up. Smith is dazed but he gets to ropes with Seven. They both stand, and Seven storms over to kick low! Smith kicks back!

Seven forearms, but Smith forearms back! Seven hits again, but so does Smith! Seven shoves, then dodges the boot! Seven stays in ropes and the ref gets Smith back, but Seven then slips around to ref to sucker punch Smith! There’s that rule bending! Seven fires off on Smith in the corner, then SNAP DRAGON SUPLEXES! Seven hauls Smith up, EMERALD FLOSION! Cover, TWO!! Smith survives again! Fans are all fired up but Seven clamps back onto Smith. Ripcord and- NO! Smith BOOTS Seven first, then gets around to ripcord Seven out! Smith rams his shoulder, then steals SEVEN STAR LARIAT!! Cover, TWO!!

Fans are thunderous as Seven survives Smith’s take on his move! Smith drags Seven up, reels him in, but Seven back drops! Smith sunset flips but Seven stays up while reach for ropes! Seven drops, and holds ropes! But Tyler is looking right at him, so Seven lets off! Smith finishes the sunset flip, TWO!! Seven survives, hurries to high stack, but he has tights!! Seven wins!!

Winner: Trent Seven, by pinfall

Tyler isn’t sure what to think here. Seven still snuck one, but it only makes them and their challengers 1-1. Are Moustache Mountain really be able to say Smith & Carter don’t deserve another shot? What will management decide?


NXT UK Media catches up with A-Kid.

How is he feeling ahead of his match with Teoman? He feels great. It’s been a few crazy weeks, but he’s very excited for what’s next. AK says he’s back and NXT UK will always be his home. He can’t let people like Teoman get away with things, like what he did to AK, to Saxon Huxley, what he’s done to Charley Dempsey. So the Spanish Sensation is ready to step up to the so-called head of Die Familie. “Teoman, no pasadas.” Will A-Kid make The Babo pay for crossing the line?


Wild Boar speaks.

“Eddie Dennis. If you think I can’t handle anything you can throw at me, you really aren’t as smart as you think you are. Master puppeteer. You keep throwing your puppets at me and I’ll keep cutting their strings one by one. ’til I get my hands on you, you will see me. When you go to bed, you’ll see me. When you wake up in a cold sweat, you’ll! See! BOAR! BOAR! BOAR!” This wild animal is coming and he’s hungry for his pound of flesh! Will Dennis have no choice but to face what he’s done?


NXT UK Media interviews Smith & Carter backstage.

Carter is of course upset by how Seven won. The reporter brings it up and Carter says we all saw what it was. We all saw it! Smith felt it, everyone knows! Bate & Seven walk in now and Smith confronts Seven about it. What was that? Uh, it was a win, that’s what. No, that was a hand full of tights! Smith asks Tyler what he thinks, but Seven says that’s just veteran work. If you wanna get the job done, you gotta get it done. They’re all arguing now but Sid Scala barges in to shout down the bickering. This issue has not been resolved, so they’ll all discuss this issue in Sid’s office next week. For now, move on.

Seven says he’s looking forward to it. Then he and Bate talk about this. Seven could’ve held ropes, but he didn’t. But the tights! Seven says he cannot afford to lose the titles, Bate knows that. A win is a win. Seven gets Bate to move on, but will this fail to convince Sid?


Kenny Williams VS Tate Mayfairs!

The Scum of the Earth has for once been on the other end of mind games and mean pranks, and he’s not happy about it. Will he send a message to whoever it is through this debuting superstar? Or will the (self-described) “Greatest Professional Wrestler to Ever Walk Planet Earth” be off to a strong start in NXT UK?

The bell rings and even that spooks Kenny. Kenny and Tate approach, and then Kenny ROCKS Tate with a forearm! Kenny stomps away on Tate, the ref counts, but Kenny lets off at 4. Kenny “apologizes” then snapmares Tate to scrape his face with soles! Kenny stands Tate up, Tate throws a body shot but Kenny CLUBS him back. Kenny shoves, headbutts low, then stomps Tate down. Fans taunt Kenny Cockroach but he whips. Tate sunset flips, TWO! Kenny swings but misses, Tate fires off jabs and haymakers! Tate bobs ‘n’ waves, has his own cocky swagger, and he whips. Kenny reverses but Tate goes up and over!

Tate runs back in but into a CHOP BLOCK! Kenny gets the leg, stomps away on it, then YANKS the leg! Tate clutches the knee but Kenny CLAWS his back. Kenny pushes Tate down for a smothering cover, TWO! Kenny argues the count then he jabs Tate in the top of his head over and over! Then a BIG crossface forearm! Cover, TWO! Tate is still in this and that just upsets Kenny more. Kenny hip drops hard on Tate! Fans boo but Kenny soaks up the heat to then get Tate’s arms. Kenny digs his head into Tate’s spine to push on the motorcycle stretch, then Kenny sits on Tate for even more pressure!

Tate endures, he fights his way up, and fans rally up behind him! Tate rolls and kangaroo kicks Kenny away! Kenny swings but Tate blocks to CHOP back! And again to ROCK Kenny with a right! Tate kicks but Kenny blocks and twists the leg! Tate fights to step up and CLBOBER Kenny! High stack, TWO! Kenny survives but Tate gets him up! Tate tries to turn Kenny but Kenny resists so Tate CLUBS him! Tate ROCKS Kenny and Kenny flops to the apron. Tate goes out after, but Kenny gets the leg! DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Kenny kicks Tate out of the ring then goes out. Kenny drags Tate up, scoops and SLAMS him on the floor!

Kenny leaves Tate behind as the ring count climbs past 5 of 10. Fans chant, “You Suck!” but Kenny decides to go out at 8! Kenny fetches Tate back in, says this was the biggest mistake of his life! BAD LUCK DRIVER! Cover, but Kenny lets off?! Kenny just wants to make Tate suffer. Fans fire up for Tate but Kenny throws him out! Kenny makes the scissor motion, but Tate ends up under the ring? Kenny sees that and laughs. Kenny storms over, grabs a leg, but he can’t drag Tate out? Is Tate holding onto something? Kenny lifts the apron skirt, and SAM GRADWELL is there! Kenny freaks out and fans fire up!

Gradwell keeps Kenny back and he puts Tate in! The ring count is still climbing, and Kenny is too scared to get close to Gradwell! The count is 10, Tate wins!!

Winner: Tate Mayfairs, by count-out

And now Gradwell chases Kenny to the back! Tate gets his first win on his first day, and fans are loving it! Count-out or not, will this help Tate prove he is the greatest? And as for Kenny, will he have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide from the Thunderstorm?


NXT UK Media interviews Wolfgang.

They apologize for interrupting as he leaves the Gallus locker room, but how are preparations going for Mark Coffey for tonight? Oh, Mark’s ready to take that cup from Dar. The Heritage Cup is coming home to Gallus! But then Die Familie walks over and Teoman says, “Heritage? Charlie, listen to him. He’s talking about heritage.” Dempsey asks Wolfgang. Why is it that Gallus always gets to represent British heritage around here? Wolfgang says not to get it twisted. Heritage or not, he’s ready for a fight, and he doesn’t need a reason. Dempsey says he’s the same. Wolfgang says those guys act like they own the shop. Gallus Boys on top! But will Wolfie have to prove it to Dempsey personally?


Andy Shepherd sits down with Dragunov and Strong.

He welcomes both champion and challenger ahead of their highly anticipated title match. Andy starts with Dragunov. “What’s your opinion of Roderick Strong?” Strong looks forward to this answer. Dragunov isn’t sure what to say. Strong’s work speaks for itself. Such a fighting spirit, such a discipline, such a will to push a performance, to push a fight to the next level. This is something inspiring to Dragunov because it is what he aspires to do every time he steps into the ring. Dragunov wants to push things to the next level, too.

Then what is Strong’s opinion of Dragunov? “Honestly, I see a lot of myself in him. And it’s just as inspiring. The fact that this man wants to push himself to a level that he’s never experience before for growth… It’s very important to me.” And there is no bigger test than Dragunov. Strong has Dragunov on the top of his list, and that NXT UK Champion is on the top of Strong’s list to add to his achievements. That is why Strong is here. Dragunov accepts that Strong respects him, but Strong doesn’t know much about the path Dragunov has been on.

As soon as Dragunov became NXT UK Champion, he became the Czar! He became something that proves what Unbesiegbar is about. “Because a Czar, he takes care of the people that support him. The fans, the audience, they gave me all the energy because they saw I’m fighting for something they believe in.” Strong says right now, Dragunov is living in the glory of the moment of being champion. But he’s never felt the disappointment of losing something as big as a championship. Strong has been a multiple time NXT Tag Team Champion, the NXT North American Champion, and the NXT Cruiserweight Champion. Was.

“Nothing hurts me more than when I say I was. Have you felt that? Because after our match, you will feel that. And to me, that’s the true test. How will you bounce back from that?” Dragunov admits, he has fear. But he takes that energy and puts it into something productive. Strong’s predictions are one thing, but the reality is… Both men stand up and Strong asks what is the reality. The reality is, Dragunov is not going to be the person laying down, but the one standing up and standing his ground! And especially against Strong. Both men are deadly serious, but who proves to be deadlier when they finally clash in the ring?


NXT UK Heritage Cup Championship: Noam Dar w/ Sha Samuels VS Mark Coffey w/ Joe Coffey!

For the Scottish Supernova, it was way back on October when he beat Wolfie in the sixth, and he recently beat “Iron King” Joe deep into the fifth. But now, the younger brother gets his shot! Will Markus do what not even Joseph could and take this cup? Or will Dar continue to do what he’s always done and inflate his ego?

The introductions are made, the cup is raised, and we see if Supernova 11 has Gallus’ number!

Fans rally and duel as the first round begins. Mark and Dar circle, Dar talks smack but Mark mocks the bear claws. They tie up, Dar waistlocks and drags Mark down to then give him noogies! Mark grabs at Dar but Dar gets away and taunts Mark from a distance. They circle more, tie up again, and Dar goes after an arm. Dar wrenches to a wristlock, but Mark reverses back. Dar headlocks for the takeover then traps an arm. Joe coaches Mark and he pushes up to put Dar on ropes. Dar shouts for the ref, the ref counts the ropebreak, and Mark lets off clean. Dar shoves Mark then dodges the haymaker. Dar brushes himself off and has a laugh.

Sha gives Dar his flask to sip, then he splashes Joe some! Joe is mad but Dar gets away to his corner before Mark can get him. They keep circling, Dar gets a headlock at the minute mark. Mark powers up but can’t get free. Mark pushes Dar to ropes, now he’s free, but Dar holds ropes. Dar dodges and table tops, then he high-fives Sha. Dar has Sha put in the call for the after party because this is too easy! We’re at 30 seconds left, they tie up again and Dar trips Mark to then knuckle lock, omoplata, and grab at the leg for a HALF CRAB! Mark endures, last ten seconds, fans count it down, and Mark endures to the bell!

Dar: 0; Mark: 0

Dar pats Mark and mockingly applauds as he regroups with Sha. Joe helps Mark refresh while Dar and Sha mock “Baby Coffey” and prepare the party already. The second round begins now and Dar mockingly asks if Mark is good. They circle, knuckle lock, and Dar rolls and wrenches to wrangle Mark down. Mark fights up but Dar wrenches to ELBOW BREAKER! Mark rolls, wrenches, snapmares Dar and wraps on a chinlock, but Dar slips right out to get the arm again. Mark endures, fights up, but Dar wrenches again. Mark rolls, snapmares, wants the chinlock but again Dar slips out.

Dar has the wristlock again, but Mark breaks free and DECKS Dark! Joe likes that, but Dar avoids the sliding dropkick! Dar baits Mark into a cradle, and gets the fall!

Dar: 1; Mark: 0

That second went fast, and Mark is clearly upset with himself. Dar and Sha talk, Joe helps Mark cool off. Don’t let Dar in your head, get in Dar’s face and get it done! Round three begins already, and Mark DECKS Dar again! Dar is dazed, Mark covers, TWO!! Mark rains down fists on Dar, but Dar gets away. Dar grabs an arm, but Mark waistlocks. Dar throws Mark off, clinches, but Mark blocks the knee strike! Mark carries Dar to ropes, then TOSSES him over head! Sha freaks out while Dar flounder sup. Dar dodges again but Mark turns table top into a roll, and a HALF NELSON SLAM! Cover, TWO!

Mark keeps cool as Dar survives that one. Mark runs back in, clinches and whips but Sha drags Dar out! The ref reprimands but Mark just slides and WRECKS Sha with a dropkick! Mark then fires off on Dar, puts him in, and dodges the back elbow to POLISH HAMMER! Mark then whips and GAMANGIRIS! Cover, Mark ties it up!

Dar: 1; Mark: 1

Keep your eyes open, these rounds are going fast! Sha helps Dar get back to his corner, wanting more recovery time. Joe says that ain’t happening, and the ref agrees! Round four starts with Sha still in the ring. Joe and Mark talk, and Dar rushes over! Mark avoids the ambush to then duck the roundhouse, but not the BACK ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Mark survives and Dar is frustrated. Dar aims and KICKS as Mark sits up. Mark stands but Dar KICKS the leg, then KICKS the chest! Mark blocks the next kick but Dar elbows him away! Dar runs in at the corner but into Mark’s lift and BACK SUPLEX!

Dar hurries to a corner again, but Mark runs in to EuroUpper! Mark then whips Dar to the other corner, for a back body block! Dar crawls, Mark goes up, but Dar kicks the legs out! Mark falls, Dar runs side to side, BOOT! Dar keeps moving, Mark LARIATS Dar inside out! Both men are down and fans fire up! Sha shouts, Mark covers, TWO! Dar still survives, time is ticking away, and the pressure is on Mark. Mark gets up as the minute mark approaches, and he goes to suplex. Dar blocks, wrenches out and kicks the leg! Mark ROCKS Dar with a right! Dar hits back but Mark ROCKS him again!

Dar staggers about, he ROCKS Mark, but Mark ROCKS Dar again! Dar KICKS the leg, fires haymakers but Mark gives them back! Fans rally up as they go back and forth with 30 seconds! Mark EuroUppers, whips, but Dar avoids the gamangiri! Dar gets the leg, CHAMPAGNE SUPER KNEEBAR!! Mark endures as there are 10 seconds left! Dar pulls on the leg, Joe coaches his brother, and Mark survives the round!!

Dar: 1; Mark: 1

Dar is still holding on! Joe gets in to protest, Dar lets off and gets away to his corner. Sha gets in Joe’s face but Joe snatches his newspaper! Joe tosses the papers around, that only upsets Sha more! The ref is busy with picking up the pieces, Sha talks with Dar and Joe helps Mark. The bell rings, here’s round five! Mark avoids Dar’s sweeping kick to ROCK him! Dar forearms, Mark hits back, we’re brawling again already! Dar kicks the leg, but Mark EuroUppers! Dar waistlocks, Mark switches, but Dar bucks the O’Conner for the BACK ELBOW! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up but Dar is growing frustrated!

Fans rally, Dar puts pinkies out and takes aim, NOVA- No, Dar feints to go for the leg! But Mark uses that to get a stacked cover! TWO, but Mark gets Dar for a modified crossface! Chinbar and armlock, The Gates are locked in! Dar flails and reaches out, and Sha is begging Dar to endure! But Mark drags Dar away and locks the hold on again!! Dar flails, Sha gets up on the apron! Mark swings on Sha and Joe chases him! They end up in the ring, Mark knocks Sha down but he tells Joe to cool off! Dar goes to a corner! He takes aim, NOVA ROLLA!!! Cover, Dar wins!!

Winner: Noam Dar, by pinfall (still NXT UK Heritage Cup Champion)

With a minute and fifteen left, the Scottish Supernova steals one from Gallus! The East End Insurance Policy comes in handy again, though perhaps the Iron King has some of the blame. Either way, will no one ever be able to take this cup from Dar?

My Thoughts:

A great episode right here, though too bad we’re not getting Prelude. But still, great montage of superstars hyping up Dragunov VS Strong, and other than maybe Strong not delivering his promo all that well, great segment of Strong and Dragunov sitting down for a face-to-face meeting. Fairly sure Dragunov wins but it will be another instant classic for this NXT UK Championship. Isla has a good video message to call out Meiko, and I would think she’s asking for a second match for the title. But maybe Isla wants Meiko to agree to step up the ante, maybe a No Disqualification situation, to parallel Meiko VS Blair Davenport. Just no jumping apron spots.

Amale VS Xia was alright but I didn’t expect Xia’s help to come from the crowd like that. Seems they’re going to use a new signee as the next part of this story, not a British legend, so I suppose that’s actually a positive. WWE gets criticized for legends and/or part-timers taking spots, so this is a spot being given to someone new for a good spotlight. Speaking of which, Tate Mayfairs getting that same benefit from the Kenny Williams story is also great. Gradwell makes it clear it was him all along, Kenny loses without really losing but Tate gets a good introduction to NXT UK. Kenny VS Gradwell is going to be great, and I think Tate is going to become a strong part of the midcard while other names are on their way out.

And speaking of that, A-Kid has a good promo to essentially say his match with Teoman will be his good-bye to NXT UK and he’ll be on NXT 2.0 full time after Stand & Deliver. That said, Teoman probably wins so that Die Familie gets on that rise they talked about a month or so ago. Die Familie calls out Gallus again as we’re getting Dempsey VS Wolfgang. I still wonder if Gallus is sticking around or not. We saw in our main event that Dar wins again, though it was still a great match. Not sure what weaknesses Mark claimed to see, other than he was familiar with plenty of Dar’s moveset. But either way, it was cuz Sha and Joe distracted Mark that Dar won, so is Gallus going to go to NXT 2.0 in the post Stand & Deliver part of the year?

What was really good tonight was the stuff with Moustache Mountain and Smith & Carter. Seven got the sneaky win off Smith so we’re all tied up, but as I’m figuring, we’re going to get Sid Scala saying the tiebreaker will be the tag title rematch. They’re going to have a great match, it could go either way as Seven is clearly up for sneaking a win but Tyler is conflicted. I just hope they don’t rehash the story Kenny Williams and Amir Jordan had of being torn apart as a team and friends because of this. A Heel Tyler Bate would be pretty wild in NXT UK, and could help keep him here instead of being dragged to NXT 2.0 to eventually be ruined by Vince like Pete “Butch” Dunne.

My Score: 8.5/10

  • 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?

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?

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?

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 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!

Winner: Mustafa Ali, by pinfall

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.

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 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
