The former NXT North American Champion and his right hand man are here, ready to team up, but they have mics to say, “First thing’s first.

But in three weeks, the title goes back to where it belongs. And that is because Melo is the rightful A Champion. That’s all it is, and that’s all it’s gon’ be.

Backstage interview with Pretty Deadly.

McKenzie says the NXT Tag Team Champions are facing The Creed Brothers at In Your House, how are they feeling? Elton Prince says he and Kit Wilson are scared. They’re terrified, even. They can’t sleep. Then they bust up laughing. For some reason, the entire locker room is in awe of the Creeds, but in their first match here, Pretty Deadly beat the Creeds to get these titles. SIDE PLATE CHECK~! Well, yes, but that win was after the Creeds already ran through three other teams. Blah blah blah. Diamond Mine can get whatever training partners they want for the Creeds, because Pretty Deadly are two tasty snacks, one meal deal.

Kit says after they beat the Creeds, Julius & Brutus are but mere shells of their former selves before Pretty Deadly ruined their lives. Tonight, we’ll see what happens after The Viking Raiders destroy them! Pretty Deadly mock the raid drum, but will Kit & Elton see just how strong the Creeds are at 100%?

 

NXT profiles another new star.

18 year old Thea Hail has been training hard as a new NXT signee, and says the tryout was perhaps the toughest thing she’s ever done. She is pretty sure she was the youngest one there, but she didn’t care. She just wanted to prove how much she wanted it. And she flipped out when she got the call. Though, there is one thing she needs to do first: graduate high school. That’s next week. And the WWE is even letting her train while she’s in college! Will Thea get a PhD in pro-wrestling and become the future of NXT?

 

NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament Opening Round: Lash Legend VS Tatum Paxley!

Lash knows how to ball and knows how to brawl, but she’s looking to rebound after being knocked down by Nikkita Lyons. Will Legend lash out and move on in the tournament? Or will Tatum prove to Lash, the fans and herself that she has what it takes to break out in NXT?

NXT returns as Tatum makes her entrance. The bell rings and Lash CLOBBERS Tatum! Cover, TWO! Lash stomps Tatum down, drags her up, and whips her to a corner. Tatum goes up but Lash catches her! Tatum fights to get free and headscissor Lash down! Tatum squeezes tight, Lash endures and fans duel. Lash kips free but Tatum kips up, and Tatum smirks while she stares Lash down. Lash swings but Tatum dodges, and Tatum dropkicks a leg out! Then she basement dropkicks Lash down! Cover, TWO! Tatum hurries and Electric Chair Lifts?! No, Lash is too tall and strong for that, she knocks Tatum down!

Tatum shoves Lash to a corner, runs in, but Lash sends Tatum face first into buckles! Lash then drags Tatum out to SLAM the leg into the post! Fans cheer and jeer as Lash gets in. Lash runs in but Tatum elbows her away. Tatum jumps up and over to sunset flip, but Lash rolls through. Lash stomps Tatum’s leg, then she handsprings to YANK Tatum’s leg! Tatum crawls to ropes, Lash goes out to the apron to get after her, and she pulls Tatum’s leg against the ropes! HOTSHOT! Lash talks trash then goes after Tatum in the ring to cover, TWO! Tatum clutches her leg but Lash is after it with a STRETCH MUFFLER!

Fans rally as Tatum endures hanging upside-down! Lash thrashes Tatum, but Tatum sits up and throws down elbows! Tatum sunset flips, high stacks, TWO! Tatum ROCKS Lash, fires more shots, then gets around to Electric Chair Lift! Lash fights off again and sends Tatum into the corner. Lash runs in but Tatum sends her into buckles now!

Tatum tries again, Electric Chair Lift! But she loses her hold, Lash BOOTS Tatum down! Lash wins!

Winner: Lash Legend, by pinfall (advances to the next round)

Tatum kept trying, but she was perhaps too focused on the power game. Lash is moving on, will she make herself a true legend by winning the whole tournament?

 

Tony D’Angelo speaks.

“Santos, you messed up big, my guy. And it didn’t have to be this way. But tonight, when I’m done pummeling you, you’ll have nobody to blame but yourself.” But Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo asks Tony how they’re doing this. Balboa speed-bagging like in grade school? Or maybe what they did to Ray Ray on the corner? “Two Dimes” Troy Donovan asks for clarification: what they did to Ray Ray the first time? Or the second time? Tony liked the second time better. He remembers Ray Ray soaring through the air. But this is different. Remember what they did to Beansie? Beat him so bad, he had to start pitching with his left hand.

But what was that? Hell in a hand basket! That’s it! But Tony flew solo on that one. Yeah, everyone was worried about that, and the Warriors covering the spread. And look what happened. No more problems at the bakery, and Steph covered it. Tony can take Santos alone. It’s The Don! Trust him on this. But will Legado del Fantasma play by the same rules?

 

NXT hits the road again!

Backstage interview with Duke Hudson.

McKenzie says the fans all want to know, what’s next for Duke Hudson? Oh, they do, do they? Well make sure to thank them for him. NOT! He doesn’t care what we want or need, that got him into this mess in the first place. And that’s why Duke had to take some time off. He had to dig himself out of the hole, clear his mind, and now he’s back. No one can measure up to Duke- Then something rattles and it’s Bron Breakker walking through! Bron wants his music, and Duke storms off.

The NXT Champion is heading to the ring!

Fans bark for Bron as he returns, a very serious look in his eyes tonight. Bron gets a mic and says, “The last time you guys saw me, Joe Gacy dumped me in some field somewhere like a piece of trash, and now he’s offering for me to come and join him!” Gacy’s pretty persuasive since he’s got two new guys working for him that do everything he tells them to. But Joe, with all due respect, after everything they’ve been through, “You can kiss my ass!” Gacy should’ve finished Bron in the field! Bron isn’t coming just to beat Gacy, he’s coming to knock Gacy out! But speaking of, here comes Gacy! Bron is ready for a fight, but Gacy is up in the perch.

Gacy says this is where Bron took his “leap of faith.” Gacy says he isn’t here to fight, but Bron tells him to shut up! Gacy has his goons, huh? Bron doesn’t trust Gacy at all, he’s ready for whatever Gacy has planned! Better yet, Gacy should just come to the ring! Oh, so predictable, Bron. But when a man is consumed by rage, he becomes predictable, and Bron has a long history of losing his temper. Gacy sees the fire burning in Bron’s eyes, envisioning the violence he wants to cause. But their journey together is not yet over. Bron rejected the opportunity of a lifetime to join Gacy. But Gacy is not the kind to hold a grudge.

Fans tell Gacy to “Shut the Hell Up!” but Gacy ignores them as he says this opportunity is for everyone here. They’ll get to see Bron VS Gacy 1v1 one more time. Bron says sounds good, it’s done! Gacy says it is time to up the stakes. After all, Gacy roughed up Bron’s dad and disrespected the Steiner legacy. Gacy abducted Bron and left him all alone in the wilderness. By all means, Bron should kick Gacy’s ass all over the arena and inflict pain like Gacy’s never felt before! Bron can go crazy and lose control! But if he does, then he loses his most prized possession. Because In Your House, if Bron gets disqualified, he’ll lose the title!

The question is then, Bron, how bad do you want Gacy? That’s up to Bron. Bron sighs, fans boo Gacy, and Bron says, “YOU’RE ON!” A No Champion’s Advantage match for the NXT Championship? Is this just as Gacy wants? Or can Bron control himself as he crushes Gacy for what he’s done?

 

Indi Hartwell speaks.

These last few weeks have been a rollercoaster for her. She went from being at the top to rock bottom in the blink of an eye. But she’s tired of feeling sorry for herself! She has the biggest opportunity of her life, and it’s right now. For the first time in her career, she’s going solo! No family, no tag partner, no life partner, just Indi! And she’ll sink or swim on what she does. So she’s calling her shot! Mandy Rose, if you wanna kick Indi while she’s down, try kicking her when she’s staring you dead in the face. If Mandy is the measuring stick, let’s see where Mandy measures up when Indi takes that stick and shoves it up her ass! Will Indi become the most impressive NXT Women’s Champion yet?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie says his match scheduled for tonight has been postponed, and Wes says Xyon Quinn is somehow not medically cleared. Again. Another match Quinn is ducking! One week it’s his shoulder, next week it’s he doesn’t have the right hair gel. When Quinn is cleared, whether that’s next week, next month or in 2030, Quinn knows where to find Wes. But then Nathan Frazer walks in. He heard about the thing with Quinn, and sees Wes really wants to get in that ring. And so does Nathan. Wes appreciates him stepping up but this might not be the right time. Wes has a lot of pent up aggression for Quinn, he doesn’t want to take it out on Nathan.

Well, if that’s so, Nathan looks forward to the challenge. Will the British Prodigy be ready for what the Must-See Kid is bringing?

 

The Creed Brothers w/ Diamond Mine VS The Viking Raiders!

Julius & Brutus didn’t appreciate Roderick Strong tainting the victory over Erik & Ivar, so now they’re giving the former NXT Tag Team Champions a fair fight! Will Julius & Brutus win this one on their own? Or will the raid start to take over NXT once again?

NXT returns and Diamond Mine accompanies the Creeds. The teams sort out, Julius starts with Ivar, and Julius hurdles Ivar to then DECK Erik! Julius ROCKS Ivar, tags Brutus, but Ivar scoops Julius! Brutus saves his brother and the Creeds RAM Ivar out of the ring! Ivar is fired up but the Creeds are ready. Ivar gets in, tags Erik, and then Brutus tags Julius back in. Julius headlocks, Erik powers out, things speed up and Erik CLOBBERS Julius! Tag to Ivar and the Vikings hammer Julius down! Fans are fired up and dueling as the Vikings roar. Tag to Erik, Ivar scoop SLAMS Julius and Erik covers. TWO, but Erik clamps onto Julius. Julius endures and fights up as fans duel.

Erik has the leg, Julius tries to fight free but Erik puts him in the corner. Ivar tags in and ROCKS Julius with a forearm. Ivar RAMS into Julius with his shoulder, then ROCKS him with an uppercut! Tag to Erik, Ivar holds Julius in place for Erik’s KNEE! Erik then feeds Julius to Ivar’s BODY CHECK! Cover, TWO! Erik facelocks to keep on Julius but Julius fights free. Erik gets the leg again, fans rally and Julius slips free! Tag to Brutus, he dodges Erik to RAM him, then CLOBBER him! Brutus CLUBS Erik, DECKS Ivar, and TACKLES Erik! Brutus rains down hammering fists and them bear crawls around.

Fans rally, Brutus waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans fire up and Brutus dodges Ivar to go for the legs. Ivar’s big, but maybe not for Brutus! Brutus puts Ivar up top, Julius DROPKICKS him down! The Vikings regroup at the ramp but Brutus goes up top! Fans go nuts for the BRUTUS BALL! Direct hit on both Vikings and fans are loving it as NXT goes to break!

NXT returns again and Julius grinds Erik down with a cobra clutch. Erik fights up, fans duel, but Julius keeps Erik from Ivar and whips him into the Creed corner! Tag to Brutus, GUT WRENCH SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Brutus tags Julius back in, they get Erik up to throw knees, then Brutus throws forearms in the corner. Julius tags Brutus, Erik pushes free and starts throwing forearms on them both! He DECKS Brutus, DECKS Julius, then flounders for his corner! Julius hurries to tag back in, but hot tag to Ivar! The War Beard rallies, SPLASHES on Julius, and then short arm LARIAT! Ivar DECKS Brutus and then fires off elbows on Julius in a corner!

The ref counts, Ivar lets off at 4 to go corner to corner, BRONCO BUSTER! Cover, TWO! Strong and Kemp coach Julius, Ivar tags Erik. Julius shoves Ivar out, ROCKS Erik, and rolls to hot tag Brutus! Brutus gets around Erik to fireman’s carry! Julius KNEES Erik into the SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Fans are thunderous as Brutus tags Julius. The Creeds double whip, but Erik tosses Brutus out! Erik dodges Julius, tag to Ivar! Ivar hits a SEATED SENTON! Tag back to Erik, Ivar goes up a corner and Erik gives Julius a lift. Ivar has Julius up top, for a SUPER POWERSLAM! Erik covers, Brutus breaks it!

Brutus waistlocks but Erik switches to GERMAN SUPLEX Brutus! “This is Awesome!” as Erik tags Ivar back in! Ivar goes back up the corner, Erik back suplexes but Julius slips out to GERMAN SUPLEX Erik! Julius goes right up to get Ivar! Ivar shoves Julius down, adjusts, VIKING SPLASH FLOPS as Julius moves! Oklahoma roll, Erik KNEES it apart! All four men are down and the fans are thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” The Creeds regroup on one side, the Vikings regroup on the other. Fans hope they “Fight Forever!” but this has to end somehow. The Creeds and the Vikings stare down, growl, and fire up! THE BRAWL IS ON!!

Hands are flying in all directions, Ivar BOOTS Julius, Erik KNEES Brutus, but the Vikings fall, too! Kemp distracts the ref, Strong gets in, but Julius redirects him out of the ring! Julius tells Strong that they don’t want and don’t need that kind of help! But then Julius turns around into a HEEL KICK! Tag to Erik, the Vikings get Julius up for a DOUBLE POWERBOMB! High stack, Viking Raiders win!!

Winners: The Viking Raiders, by pinfall

The leader of Diamond Mine just screwed his team up! Kemp tries to keep the peace, but is Strong going to be the reason this group implodes?

 

Legado del Fantasma speaks.

Santos Escobar tells Tony D’Angelo, “Since our paths crossed, I have realized: you wanna be just like me. I don’t blame you, but there’s only one Santos Escobar. I’ve always been one step ahead of you. And now I’m inside your head, I’m under your skin. That is why tonight I trust it’s going to be one-on-one, no Legados by my side.” Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde are surprised to hear this. Is he serious? Tony and his guys jumped Cruz and locked him in their trunk! This can’t just be 1v1. Cruz & Wilde want to get even. But Santos asks La Madrina, Elektra Lopez, what they always talk about. “You never let your emotions get in the way of business.” Exactly.

Escobar trusts everyone, just not the devil inside them. Legado knows how they can help and exactly what they need to do. Wilde & Cruz nod, will they do their part behind the scenes?

 

Grayson Waller warms up backstage.

But his concentration is broken when Tiffany Stratton reacts to stuff on social media. It is a travesty that she isn’t in the Women’s Breakout Tournament! If anyone is a star in NXT, it’s her! He is so right. But can Waller do her a favor? Take care of this Andre Chase situation. It is so annoying. He promises to do that right now. Be sure to watch. Will Waller teach Chase a thing or two when they go 1v1? Or will Chase make Waller go viral for all the wrong reason?

 

NXT Media catches up with Bron Breakker in the parking lot.

They ask him about his championship rematch with Gacy with No Champion’s Advantage. Is he worried about playing right into Gacy’s hands? “Listen, Gacy talks about acceptance, inclusion, alright, but his actions are the complete opposite. As long as I have this championship, Gacy’s not gonna do a damn thing.” But then Duke Hudson barges in, saying it doesn’t feel too good being interrupted, does it? If Bron does that again, he won’t make it to In Your House. Bron says if Duke is feeling big and bad, they can go back inside and settle this in the ring.

Sounds good to Duke. But it sounds better next week. Speaking of hands, is Duke about to change the one he’s been dealt by going after THE NXT Champion?

 

Grayson Waller VS Andre Chase w/ Bodhi Hayward!

The 21st Century Success Story and Daddy’s Little Rich Girl lost in a Mixed Tag against Professor Chase and the Warrior of the Sun. But will Waller be able to change things going 1v1? Or will this be another #TeachableMoment?

The bell rings and Waller is already taunting Chase. Waller gets around, SMACKS Chase, CLUBS him, then throws knees. Waller puts Chase in a corner, mocks the U, then throws elbows! Waller CHOKES Chase on the ropes! The ref counts, Waller lets off but brings Chase around to whip him to ropes. Chase ducks and dodges, then blocks hip toss to hit a NECKBREAKER! Chase kicks low, EuroUppers, then EuroUppers again! Chase throws a body shot, but Waller elbows Chase back. Waller runs, things speed up again, but Waller fakes Chase out to BOOT him down! Waller gives some ground ‘n’ pound but fans boo.

Sarray is in the student section, she also boos and gives a thumbs down. Waller just scowls and brings Chase up. Chase fights the suplex, Waller throws body shots and powers Chase up and over! Cover, TWO! Waller is annoyed but he slaps Chase around. Waller kicks Chase to ropes then into a corner. Fans chant, “Waller Sucks!” but Waller whips Chase to a corner.

Chase blocks the kick, trips Waller, and then CATAPULTS him into buckles! Waller wobbles, Chase CLOBBERS him with Polish Hammers! Chase hits an atomic drop then a whip, but Waller reverses. Chase reverses back to a RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Fans fire up and they spell out “CHASE U!” as Chase stomps Waller!

Waller staggers up, Chase clinches but Waller JABS! Chase wobbles, but he tosses Waller out onto Bodhi! Chase realizes what happened to his star pupil and he helps Bodhi up. Bodhi says it’s good, just get in the ring! Chase does, but SOMERSAULT STUNNER!! Cover, Waller wins!

Winner: Grayson Waller, by pinfall

Chase just learned he has to focus on himself! Waller gets a win to rebound from last week, can he keep this momentum going through the summer?

 

Toxic Attraction watches a WWE Digital Exclusive.

It’s KC Squared, Kayden Carter & Katana Chance, criticizing Jacy Jayne & Gigi Dolin for skating by against makeshift tag teams. They just want titles for the perks and clout. But KC Squared want the titles for what they represent. And they’re the only legit tag team that can take Toxic Attraction on. Mandy Rose then storms in and asks if they heard what Indi said about her. They show Mandy what Kayden & Katana just said about them. Why is everyone so obsessed with Toxic Attraction? Well, other than the obvious. But didn’t anyone see what Toxic Attraction did to “twinkle toes” Wendy Choo? That title shot set Wendy straight, but it didn’t translate to the rest of the roster.

Are they all blind? Toxic Attraction have dominated for eight MONTSH! “We wAnT tHe TiTlEs fOr wHaT tHeY rEpReSeNt~!” Big deal. There needs to be respect on Toxic Attraction’s name, and that starts with Indi Hartwell! Will the champions make sure the NXT Women’s Division stays toxic at In Your House?

 

Diamond Mine is arguing in their locker room.

Kemp is still trying to keep the peace as the Creeds are upset with Strong interfering. Strong says with his help, they got that NXT Tag Team Championship match! They should be thanking him! There’s no way they can beat Pretty Deadly without listening to Strong and following his lead! The Creeds storm off, and Strong tells Kemp to go get them ready. Strong is upset, but then in walk Pretty Deadly. With all due respect, it doesn’t matter how much tape the Creeds watch, they will still lose. Is that so? A shame, really. A former two-time NXT Tag Team Champion can’t show them how it’s done. He’s a singles guy now, right? Leader of Diamond Mine!

Strong says they’re so funny. How about the leader of Diamond Mine and Damon Kemp take Pretty Deadly on next week. Oh, sounds fun. Pretty Deadly leave, but will Strong & Kemp grind them down before the Creeds get their turn?

 

NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament Opening Round: Roxanne Perez VS Kiana James!

The Opening Round reaches the close as we have one more match! Will the Gamer Girl break through to the semifinals? Or will the professional professional wrestler prove to everyone that she means business?

NXT returns and Kiana makes her entrance. The bell rings and Kiana circles with Roxie. They tie up, Roxie waistlocks but Kiana breaks free to switch and SLAM! Then she steps on Roxie with a big smile. Roxie gets up, gets around but Kiana wrenches to an armlock. Roxie endures and fans rally as she whips free. Kiana runs Roxie over, pops her collar, then runs the ropes. Roxie drops, Kiana handsprings over and has another cocky smile, then things speed up again. Roxie handsprings and takes a bow, then she drop toeholds Kiana down! Roxie arm-drags Kiana around, mule kicks, and runs to SHOTGUN Kiana down! Cover, ONE!

Roxie keeps on Kiana with another whip, but Kiana reverses. Roxie ends up in the corner, but Kiana blocks the boots to put Roxie in the ropes. Kiana CLUBS Roxie, then hits a DRAPING BACKBREAKER! The ref reprimands but Kiana covers, ONE! Kiana is upset and she stomps Roxie. Fans rally and Kiana clamps onto Roxie for a BOW ‘N’ ARROW! Roxie endures, pops free to cover, TWO! Kiana knees low, puts Roxie in a corner, and runs in to RAM into her! Kiana shoves Roxie, stomps her down, then gets both legs. Roxie fights but Kiana kicks her.

Roxie’s take on the Sunset Flip Powerbomb gets it done! Roxie is taking on Lash next round, Lyons takes on Fallon, who will be the inaugural Women’s Breakout Tournament finalists?

 

Malik Blade cosplays as Escobar?

“Tony, we’ve agreed to leave our crews behind. Tonight, we settle this.” And then Edris Enofe is Tony D’Angelo! “Tony D ain’t afraid o’ nobody. Santos, we settle things, with our hands!” They put up the dukes, but then Edris D’Angelo loses control of the Mamma Mia hands, and Malik Escobar has to answer his phone. MI FAMILIA! Edris says he always wanted to be a gangsta. But Malik says not him. He always wanted to be the leader of leaders of leaders! Wait, how many leaders? Two liters of Coke? But then Two Dimes & Stacks walk in and see the wise guys making jokes.

Edris asks, “Are they talkin’ ta me? Are they, talkin’ ta me?” Malik says yes, they’re the only ones in the room. Stacks tells them that instead of playing pretend, they face the real thing. Let’s do this next week. Okay, now they’re speaking the same language. See you next week, Mama Luke!

 

Nathan Frazer heads to gorilla.

As he does, he passes by Sophia Cromwell and nods hello. Does the British Prodigy know what happens to guys who look at Sophia…?

 

Backstage interview with Roxanne Perez.

McKenzie congratulates her on that big win in the tournament, and Cora Jade comes over to congratulate her friend. That was amazing, and just two more wins to go! Sorry to interrupt, but they have been friends a long time. McKenzie wants to talk about Cora going to the limit with Natalya, but Cora says this is Roxie’s moment. She’s been killin’ it since she arrived and Cora’s so proud. Roxie says she’s also proud of Cora, and Cora was the one who convinced her to come to NXT. They’re both doing great, but then in walks Elektra Lopez. She says tonight is about Legado, just like it will be next week when Lopez takes out Alba Fyre.

And what she sees here right now is an overachiever who will lose to Lash Legend in the second round, and an underachiever who gets just as excited about losing as she does winning. Uh, what is Lopez’s problem? Well, looking at these two, not them. Lopez walks off but Cora and Roxie shrug that off. Will #GenerationJade and the Gamer Girl rock NXT as we roll into the summer?

 

Wes Lee VS Nathan Frazer!

The Must-See Kid wanted to see the Gentleman Fighter, but it seems #RunItStraight makes run away from a challenge. Will Wes be careful not to vent his frustration on Frazer? Or will he see why they call Nathan the British Prodigy?

The bell rings and the two circle. Fans rally, Frazer and Wes tie up, and Wes wrenches an arm to a wristlock. Frazer slips through, slips around, headlocks, but Wes powers out. Wes then reels Frazer in to headlock. Frazer powers out, Wes goes up and over in the corner, but the arm-drag is blocked! Frazer whips, Wes reverses, things speed up, Wes hurdles but Frazer leaps! Frazer sidesteps to arm-drag Wes, but Wes arm-drags back! Frazer avoids the next, Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Wes sweeps, covers, ONE! Frazer ducks the kick, Wes backflips over one, but Frazer blocks the next! Fans fire up for this standoff!

Fans love “NXT! NXT!” for this fast ‘n’ furious match, and Frazer headlocks. Wes powers out then sidesteps, only to stop short as Frazer shows superkick. “This is Wrestling!” as Wes tosses Frazer to the apron. Wes fakes Frazer out with the haymaker, to flick the rope into Frazer’s face! Wes wasn’t kidding about aggression, and he PLANCHAS Frazer down! Wes puts Frazer in, but Frazer comes back to DIVE! Direct hit at the ramp, and Frazer hurries to put Wes in the ring. Wes stands, Frazer springboards, but he blocks the kick! Wes ENZIGURIS! And deadlift GERMAN SUPLEXES! Bridging cover, TWO!

Wes is annoyed but he sees Frazer go to the corner. Wes runs in, Frazer moves but Wes stops himself. Frazer returns but into Wes’s back elbow. Wes goes up and up but Frazer ENZIGURIS him first! Wes wobbles up top, Frazer goes up after Wes, and fans rally as Frazer SUPER- NO! CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO!! Frazer survives that counter and gets himself to the corner. Wes runs in but Frazer SUPERKICKS him down! Frazer goes up and fans fire up, PHOENIX SPLASH but he has to roll through! Wes runs in, slips out of the scoop and shoves, but Frazer hurdles! DOUBLE CROSSBODIES collide!

Fans fire up and the ref check son both men. They’re both okay to continue, “This is Awesome!” But then VON WAGNER attacks Frazer! And tosses him out of the ring!

Winner: Nathan Frazer, by disqualification

Wes SUPERKICKS Von! And GAMANGIRIS in the corner! Wes takes his anger out on Von, but Von shoves and BOOTS Wes down! Robert Stone coaches Von on as he hauls Wes up. Von trophy lifts Wes, and TOSSES him at commentary!! Fans lose their minds as Wes bounces off the desk! Stone cheers his client on, because this is Wagner’s World, and he’ll hurt anyone he wants in it!

 

NXT returns as Frazer and Wes regroup backstage.

Wes and Nathan don’t get what’s up with Von. Sanga is there, and he tells them they were having a great match, and it was unfair what Von did to them. Two men of their size stands no chance against a man like Wagner. Uh, what? Are they taking shots at them? Frazer says no, that can’t be it. Everyone is small compared to Sanga. Wes says Sanga was insulting him, and now Frazer is defending him? Frazer says if Wes wants to fight everyone, fine, but Frazer’s out. Wes says he won’t stand for disrespect. Let’s see if Sanga keeps this same energy in the ring against him. Sanga says what is it Wes wants. And Wes says he wants to prove you don’t have to be 10 foot tall to be successful here.

Well, okay. Sanga stands up, and says he and Wes will have a match. Will Wes learn to pick his battles? Or will he make everyone understand not to pick on him?

 

Tony D’Angelo VS Santos Escobar!

No Stacks, no Two Dimes, no Wilde and no Del Toro. The Don of NXT and the Emperor of Lucha want to settle this face to face, man to man, 1v1. Will they prove they are men of honor? Or will one of these leaders have a trick up their sleeve after all?

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Santos. Escobar says NXT belongs to him, but Tony rushes him! They tie up, end up on ropes, and the ref counts. Tony lets off with a body shot! Tony talks trash, Escobar circles with him, and they tie up again. Escobar waistlocks, drags Tony down, then floats to a facelock. Tony fights up, Escobar has the facelock and fans duel. Escobar switches to a waistlock but Tony gets the ropebreak. Escobar lets off with a body shot of his own. Escobar mocks Tony’s rope-a-dope, and the two circle again. They tie up, Tony facelocks but Escobar wrenches to a wristlock.

Tony ROCKS Escobar, whips him, and elbows Escobar down! Tony stomps away then rains down fists! Fans are torn between cheers and jeers but Tony talks trash. Tony puts Escobar in a corner, RAMS into him, then whips corner to corner. Escobar reverses, runs in but is put o the apron. Tony ducks the haymaker to HOTSHOT Escobar down. Fans are torn again as Tony paces around Escobar. Tony drags Escobar up, CLUBS him, then runs to SWINGING NECKBREAKER! Tony looms over Escobar, talks trash, and brings him up with a cravat. Escobar gets to the ropes, the ref counts, but Tony grinds Escobar’s face on the ropes!

The ref reprimands, Escobar writhes and fans rally up. Tony drags Escobar up, throws body shots like a hockey fight, then he runs, but Escobar slips out of the neckbreaker to ENZIGURI! Tony tumbles out, Escobar takes aim! Escobar builds speed for the ARROW FROM HELL into a forearm! Tony has Escobar in the ropes, puts on his fedora, and mocks the Legado fans. “Wake up, you’re making a fool of yourself.”

NXT goes picture in picture as Tony DECKS Escobar! Tony taunts the fans who are booing him and he goes into the ring. Tony tosses his hat aside to drop knees on Escobar’s arms. Tony then gives Escobar some ground ‘n’ pound, and he soaks up the heat. Tony facelocks, CLUBS Escobar, and has him in a corner. Tony RAMS into Escobar, and again and again. Fans still duel, Escobar pushes Tony so Tony CHOKES Escobar! the ref reprimands, Escobar ROCKS Tony with haymaker after haymaker! Tony rebounds to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Tony stomps Escobar and CLUBS him, then puts him on ropes. Tony CHOKES Escobar again but the ref reprimands.

Tony puts Escobar in a corner, backs off, and Escobar gest up to throw haymakers back! Tony knees low, CLUBS Escobar, then whips him to ropes. Escobar ducks and dodges, but Tony blocks the rana! POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO! Tony grows annoyed but he drag Escobar into a seated cobra twist. NXT returns to single picture as Escobar endures and fans duel. Escobar fights, Tony dragon sleepers! Escobar kicks but Tony hits a REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Escobar grits his teeth but Tony mocks the fans chanting for Escobar.

Escobar whistles and the fans fire up. Escobar digs his boots in, the ref counts, and Escobar lets off at 4. Tony flounders, Escobar brings him up and around to wrench, ELBOW BREAKER and ARM WRINGER! Escobar then pulls on Tony’s arm and traps it.

Fans rally and duel, Tony endures the omoplata but Escobar grabs for the other arm. Tony gets the ROPEBREAK first! Escobar lets off quickly, and runs in to DROPKICK Tony down! Escobar drags Tony up but Tony throws body shots. Escobar hits an ARM CODE BREAKER! Cover, TWO! Tony is still in this but Escobar grabs the bad arm. Escobar has a cording hold but Tony endures. Tony fights up but Escobar CLUBS the bad arm. Escobar whistles, but Tony ROCKS him! And ROCKS him again! And LARIATS! Tony rallies with forearms and elbows, then a BELLY2BELLY! Tony shoves Escobar to a corner, clinches again, another BELLY2BELLY!

Fans duel, “You Still Suck!” but Tony clinches again! A third BELLY2BELLY! Tony hits the hat trick and grabs at Escobar’s legs, but Escobar bails out. Tony grabs Escobar’s hair and drags him up, to suplex Escobar up. Escobar fights, lands back on the apron and he CHOPS Tony! Tony goes up the corner and Escobar springboards, but Tony blocks! Tony goes up higher, but Escobar still SUPER STEINERS! Fans are losing their minds from that one! Tony crawls his way to his favorite corner, and… Wait, where is his crowbar? But Cruz is on the stage and says, “You looking for this?” Legado has the crowbar!

Tony is furious and he shouts at Cruz & Wilde, but he misses Escobar getting something of his own! Stacks & Two Dimes attack Wilde & Cruz, they brawl goes around ringside, and Tony goes for Escobar. BRASS KNUCKLE RIGHT! Cover, Escobar wins!!

Winner: Santos Escobar, by pinfall

Well, so much for either of these two doing this with honor! Tony wanted his crowbar but Escobar had his own trump card. Will Legado del Fantasma continue to do whatever they want until they run all of NXT?

 

Joe Gacy speaks.

“On our journey together, Bron, I predicted your every step, your every move. Tonight, declining my offer but accepting my match, we all know you have uncontrollable rage inside of you.” Bron won’t be able to control his anger next week or at In Your House. That lack of control will deliver Gacy full control of the title, the brand, and the world! Gacy laughs into the night, but will he accomplish his goal and get the gold?


My Thoughts:

A great night for NXT as we continue towards In Your House 2022. Opening with Grimes & Solo VS Melo & Trick was a good move, fans still love all those guys, and I was surprised Melo took the pin. But I suppose Solo gets momentum for himself when he “gets next,” and Melo is down points so he could be the one winning the title. At the same time, there are hints to Grimes turning Heel and ironically, I feel like that’s what fans would cheer for. Grimes getting that cocky swagger back is what got fans to like him, so a braggadocios Heel Grimes VS Face Solo would be the best move out of all the combinations after In Your House.

Good stuff out of the NXT Tag Team Championship story. Pretty Deadly have a good promo to talk down on the Creeds, and a good interaction with Roderick Strong to set up their tune-up tag match. Creeds VS Viking Raiders was great stuff, and where I thought Kemp alone was going to cost the Creeds, it ended up being Strong again. Creeds VS Pretty Deadly was just made through social media so there isn’t a great moment where the Creeds earn it or egg Pretty Deadly into giving us this match, but hey, we’ll get something great. And maybe in the end, Strong & Kemp do take on the Creeds, and it’ll be for the titles as well as membership in Diamond Mine.

Is it just me, or is WWE making sure NXT has the youngest superstars they can? Thea Hail is only 18 and, according to her promo, a high school senior. If she’s really that good, then all the better for her to get going now and build her brand. But while NXT is still the developmental brand, I hope they don’t air matches where it’s obvious these kids are learning how to do matches. But at least NXT is hitting the road again. Only eight dates to start but a house show circuit can definitely help these youngsters get going, learn how to appeal to more than just the Performance Center crowds, and be ready for when they’re on TV.

Waller VS Chase was a good rematch, and I loved seeing Sarray as part of the Chase U student section. It seems this feud is far from done, so there has to be a way where Sarray finally gets that win that puts Stratton in her place. Maybe it’ll be something big for the go-home to In Your House. Wes Lee’s story is getting quite interesting. He seems to be ready to fight anyone, but perhaps for good reason. The frustration of what happened to MSK, Quinn ducking him, Von Wagner interfering just because Frazer nodded to the woman Wagner has the hots for, and then Sanga inadvertently insulting him, Wes is ready to snap and go Heel at any moment.

Good stuff from the NXT Women’s Championship and Women’s Tag Team Championship stories. KC Squared is calling out Gigi & Jacy, Indi Hartwell is calling out Mandy Rose, I hope we see those titles leave Toxic Attraction. Eight months is about two months two long given the gimmick is, “We’re hot, you’re not, and we help each other win.” Indi VS Mandy could especially be good, and it’d be great for Indi to get that singles title and join Raquel Gonzalez/Rodriguez, Io Shirai and Ember Moon in a very select club. And KC Squared has been around long enough that they deserve something for once.

We got great stuff from the Women’s Breakout Tournament tonight, even with the outcomes a bit apparent. Lash beats Tatum because there’s a chance we get Lyons VS Lash in the finals. Tatum got a good showing, and I like that she insisted on using her powerlifting skills, and maybe stuff like that convinces Ivy Nile to let her into Diamond Mine. Meanwhile, Roxie VS Kiana was great stuff, and Roxie wins because she’s definitely a fan favorite and getting the support of management. I did like that they connected Roxie and Cora, and I bet if KC Squared doesn’t get the belts, Cora and Roxie have half a chance.

We got some decent stuff for the NXT Championship story. Duke striking back out on his own is the logical next move after the debacle of Dexter Lumis and Persia Pirotta being released, and Duke going after Bron is a logical move. Bron VS Duke will be a good tune-up before Bron takes on Gacy in the rematch. Though, Gacy having one last promo bit tonight seems really weird. Why not save that for next week after Bron beats Duke? Or even for the go-home after who knows what happens. I have a feeling Gacy wins because of his red hood wearing henchmen, who might reveal their identities at In Your House. And then Bron becomes a three-time NXT Champion with the same superman push Vince gave Cena and Roman in the past.

And we got some really good stuff out of the main event story. Tony’s promo with his guys was a bit cheesy because they were inventing the kayfabe mafia stuff they’d done in the past, even though Tony just brought in Stacks and Two Dimes recently. And I had to stop myself from laughing too hard at Malik & Edris parodying Escobar and Tony. Those guys really need to be pushed, they’re very entertaining. And the main event match was good stuff, and of course both these guys still have Heel tendencies. Pretty sure we’re getting a Six Man Tag, Legado VS Tony’s Family, probably even No Holds Barred or something to flashback to when Legado took on Team Swerve.

My Score: 8.5/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 6.30.2022

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

Published

on

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

Ratings:

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

 

Results:

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

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

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

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

Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw

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

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

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

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

Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne

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

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

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

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

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

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

Overall Score: 9/10

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

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

PLAY BY PLAY

Blair Davenport VS Angel Hayze!

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

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

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

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

Winner: Blair Davenport, by pinfall

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

 

NXT UK Media caught up with Sid Scala.

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

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

 

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

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

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

 

Emilia McKenzie VS Fallon Henley!

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

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

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

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

Millie is on Fallon again, going after the arms. Fallon fights but Millie still gets a COBRA CLUTCH! Fallon endures, resists, and fans rally as Millie still tries to lock this on! Fallon fights, Millie might just have it! Fallon is fading as Millie bends her backwards!! But Fallon gets a second wind and pries free to arm-drag Millie away!

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

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

Winner: Fallon Henley, by pinfall

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

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Oliver Carter.

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

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Sarray.

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

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

 

Wolfgang VS Sha Samuels w/ Noam Dar!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Wolfgang, by pinfall

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

 

Trent Seven heads to the ring.

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

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

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

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.5/10
