PLAY BY PLAY

It’s the In Your House Kickoff Show!

Join McKenzie Mitchell and Sam Roberts in discussing, analyzing and predicting all of the action coming up tonight!

 

Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams interrupt via video.

Trick tells McKenzie and Sam, “Whoa whoa whoa whoa” when it comes to talking about the North American Championship. “When Melo shoots, he don’t miss. And Melo doesn’t need to worry about history being on his side because he is the man who writes and rewrites the history books.” Melo likes the sound of that. And ever since Stand & Deliver, Melo’s been watching Cameron Grimes with Melo’s title. And he means his title. But he has to give it to Grimes. Trick says Grimes is aight. Melo says he can’t stand the way Grimes walks, the way Grimes talks, but he has to give him this much: Grimes fights with passion, emotion and he gives it everything he has.

Grimes will fight like hell tonight, but he’s against Melo. And no matter how great Grimes is, Melo is at a level nobody in this business can reach. And tonight, we welcome back THE A Champion. That’s all it is, and that’s all it’s gon’ be. Sam, McKenzie, back to you. Melo is as confident and ready as he’ll ever be, but will Grimes block that shot and keep that title?

 

Ivy Nile talks to Roderick Strong and Damon Kemp.

Has he calmed down after last Tuesday? Strong says he knows he lost his cool but we’re all good. So he doesn’t want to kick the Creeds out? No, he meant that. IF they lose, they’re out. The Creeds walk in and Brutus says Strong is a leader who doesn’t back down. Never have, never will. Well the Creeds don’t either. They take on their challenges and conquer them head-on. See you later, boss. Kemp says the Creeds look ready, and Strong says they better be. Will Julius & Brutus bring the gold back to Diamond Mine? Or will they be left out in the cold?

 

Malik Blade & Edris Enofe join the panel.

McKenzie says these are are very familiar with all the teams in the NXT Tag Division, who do they see winning between Pretty Deadly and The Creed Brothers? Fans chant Enofe’s name, he appreciates the fans, and he says they have to get something out of the way. Malik Blade right here is every woman’s dream! He’s the never overbearing, the sweater vest wearing, MALIK DA FREAK BLADE! And Enofe is “Mistah 200 Pounds. Mistah Six Feet Standin’ Up, Seven Feet Layin’ Down!” Malik has Edris hold on right there. The point is, their invitations to that gauntlet match a month ago must’ve gotten lost in the mail. A bit suspicious.

But either way, the Creeds are one of the toughest teams around, except for their own team. But they see the work those two put in, this added pressure from Strong will only make the Creeds better. Edris adds Pretty Deadly will be in for a long night. Their stamina is almost as bad as Malik’s! But if Pretty Deadly can’t retain the titles, they’ll be looking Pretty Awful, Pretty Disgusting, and Pretty Atrocious. Sam defends “the most gorgeous men I’ve ever seen in my life.” But more than that, Pretty Deadly won the titles their first nights in NXT 2.0. That doesn’t happen by mistake. Edris gets serious and asks Sam why he’s bald.

Sam says this isn’t about him, it is about Pretty Deadly VS The Creeds, and the Creeds won’t have the focus because they’ll be worried about what the Diamond Mine is going through. But as for their picks, Malik & Edris are unanimous in saying the Creeds, but Sam says Pretty Deadly. Will Kit Wilson & Elton Prince stay golden with that #SidePlateCheck?

 

Sit back, relax, and enjoy!

NXT has kicked the door wide open for tonight’s In Your House spectacular! Two factions look to raise the roof in a battle for control! The main event has NXT Champion, Bron Breakker, defending his title against Joe Gacy. But Gacy and his goons break in, and now we’re entering a dark place. “In Your House… is no more!” Gacy burns the logo, but will he burn down Bron’s family legacy?

Alba Fyre speaks.

“To understand me now, I have to explain my past, and embrace my heritage. I come from a long line of warrior women who roamed Scotland. Among those women stood the Fire Keeper. She kept the flame burning because it was vital to survival while the others learned to live off the land.” Alba calls upon her family’s spirit. Since coming to NXT, she has had success but has fallen short of her maximum potential. Now SHE is the Fire Keeper, forging her future and leaving her opponents in ashes where they lie! When the smoke starts to surround you, remember: Where there’s smoke, there’s Fyre.

The other women of NXT are watching.

Lash Legend is the only one not impressed. Fyre used to be like that, but now- Oh, is Lash gonna keep running her mouth? Or is she going to go ask Fyre for a match? Excuse you., If Lash and Fyre got in the ring, Fyre would be ancient history. Just like Taum. Well fine, if Lash isn’t brave enough, Tatum will. Tatum wants a match with the Scary Queen of Scots? Lash says she has issues.

Backstage interview with Tiffany Stratton and Roxanne Perez.

Our finalists for the Women’s Breakout Tournament are here, and Tiffany doesn’t like McKenzie talking at her. That is rude. If you want to be on the good side of the future winner, you’re failing. Wow she thinks she is going to win? Yes! If there was a trophy for this tournament, Tiffany’s name would already be on it. Because this is the Women’s Breakout Tournament, not the Little Girls Breakout Tournament. Doesn’t Roxanne have a bus to catch? Insult her all you want, but this Tuesday is the biggest match of Roxie’s life. These kinds of things may just be handed to Tiffany, but Roxie’s had to fight for every single one. And she won’t leave without that contract.

Who gets the inaugural Women’s Breakout Contract? Tiffany says McKenzie is the worst person ever, but will she end up the last loser of this tournament?

 

NXT Tag Team Championship: Pretty Deadly VS The Creed Brothers!

The former NXT UK Tag Team Champions became the NXT Tag Team Champions by getting in on the Tag Team Gauntlet and taking advantage of a worn out Julius & Brutus. That loss put on the pressure, but so has Roderick Strong’s Diamond Ultimatum. Either Julius & Brutus win the titles for the Diamond Mine, or they’re OUT of the Diamond Mine. Will the Creeds crack under pressure? Or will they be made into true diamonds?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see just who the top tag team in NXT really is!

The teams sort out and Brutus starts with Prince. They approach, but then Wilson tags in. Brutus avoids the leg takedown but Wilson fires off hands! Wilson EuroUppers and CHOPS Brutus in a corner.

The mind games are over, because Bron has won! Has Bron finally proven himself to everyone that he is truly a worthy champion?


My Thoughts:

This was a great, fast-paced special for NXT! Pretty good promo from Trick & Melo in the kickoff show to hype up the North American Championship match, and for good reason because that ended up a great match. I was pleasantly surprised Melo won, and now we’ll get Melo VS Solo in a 1v1 feud and that will be a lot of fun. Great American Bash is on its way back, having a month to build to it could really make that match a great one. We also got a decent promo from Malik & Edris, but they came off a bit nervous being on the kickoff panel. I hope those guys get going in the tag division, they’ve got a lot of personality and can get fans on their side.

Speaking of the tag division, that was a great NXT Tag title match. Fans were all red hot for the Creeds, and it was a great moment that Mr. & Mrs. Creed were in attendance for this win. The Creeds are champions, they get to stay in Diamond Mine per Strong’s challenge, but I don’t think the tension goes away. Strong will still push things to a point where he’ll be expelled from the group in a mutiny and we’ll have to see where that goes. And where Strong goes, because he was hoping to make his exit from NXT and WWE not too long ago. The rest of his friends (i.e. Undisputed Era) and even his wife, Marina Shafir, are in AEW, I would think he wants to join them as soon as he can.

As cheesy as the build was for Legado VS The Don’s crew, with the mob movie parodies and all that, the Six Man Tag was great stuff. It was very clever for both sides to check the other’s corners for weaponry, only for both sides to have back-up plans. And even without the chaotic finish with the crowbar and the knuckles, fans were really into this. Tony D and his guys winning wasn’t quite that surprising, they’re the ones getting the push right now. Chances are, they’ll play up being the Heels by making Legado do menial and demeaning jobs, and fans will want to see Legado rebel pretty quickly. Legado will do just that, come out the Faces in the rematch, but who knows how that goes. Maybe a Losers Leave NXT match to send Legado to RawDown?

Alba Fyre had a good promo vignette to explain why her name is now “Alba Fyre,” and Lash had a pretty good trash talk response promo. Tatum also had a good part throwing Lash’s words back at her, and Tatum VS Fyre is going to be a good match that Fyre of course wins. Pretty sure Lash will even come out after to talk more trash and then Fyre makes her put up or shut up. Great matches out of both women’s titles, but as I figured on the go-home, since Wendy & KC Squared stood tall and touched the belts, they were going to lose. Still great showings, and that was probably the best match Wendy Choo has had in NXT, including when she was Mei Ling of Tian Sha and her real self, Karen Q. But now the way is open for Roxanne to win the Breakout contract and challenge any number of the champs for the summer.

And of course, the main event. As I figured, Bron wasn’t going to lose, and I laughed seeing a couple fans in the front row were disappointed that he won. The match was still really good stuff, and of course the druids got involved. A shame we didn’t see them unmasked but I guess Gibson & Drake aren’t meant to be exposed, even though where the kayfabe hell are they then? It was still a clever finish for Gacy to try an Eddie Guerrero only for another ref to point it out to the main ref. WWE seems to be getting smarter with how refs officiate these matches so that such tropes are subverted. But again, Bron wins because he is Mr. NXT 2.0, and he is NOT going to be a three-time champion so soon, meaning he needs to make this second reign last.

My Score: 8.8/10

Axiom watches NXT UK episodes on Peacock.

Tyler Bate walks over to see it’s Tyler Bate VS A-Kid for the Heritage Cup. Bate was always a big fan of A-Kid’s. They had some excellent matches in NXT. Axiom agrees, A-Kid’s the best. What ever happened to him? Bate says Axiom reminds him of A-Kid. He isn’t sure what it is, he can’t put his finger on it. Axiom says he gets that a lot. But Bate, that Heritage Cup match was very unique, a real masterpiece. How about they create a masterpiece of their own tonight? Bate loves that idea! But then in walks Damon Kemp with sarcastic applause.

Kemp says he was walking around, and overhead them. Friendly competition makes him sick! “I respect your work a lot! I respect your work to infinity!” When Kemp was in NXT UK, he learned that all the Limeys are soft! And the European wrestling style is overrated! And if you ever see A-Kid personally, tell him that Kemp says he’s hot garbage! Well, if Axiom does see A-Kid around, he’ll tell him. Kemp walks off, but Bate says Kemp is a “right wazzock.” A what? A pendejo. Oh! Okay. Bate heads out, will Axiom get that friendly competition? Or will he first take care of Kemp’s attitude first?

The Schism speaks.

Joe Gacy says, “A day of vengeance is on the horizon for The Schism.” Rip Fowley says, “We seek vengeance for something that has been owed to us for far too long.” Jagger Reed says, “The NXT Tag Team Championships have been kept from us since The Dyad’s inception.” Gacy says, “Tonight, Rip and Jagger change their destiny by altering others’ reality.” Ava Raine tells Edris Enofe & Malik Blade, “We know who you are. But everyone at Chase University, you worship a false idol. You are not a family. You are abusive, devious, and delusional. School spirit will not help you tonight, because Chase University will fail. There is no unit stronger than the Schism.”

They are four roots, one tree, but will they be the final team to enter the Fatal 4 Way?

 

Apollo Crews speaks.

“The city of Charlotte. Packed restaurants, tons of foot traffic, bars with lines out the door. Cars flying down I-85. I came out early to feel Charlotte’s energy, and I feel the city’s excitement all the way up here. NXT’s coming, and I’m coming. I need two falls, two pinfalls, two submissions, or one each. I’ve visualized this match a hundred times. Money Melo is gonna be fast, he’s gonna be flashy, but I am ready for Melo’s handprint. My best will always be better than his best. And if Trick Williams wants to get involved, well Trick’s gonna get handled. Melo wants to call me the past and him the future? At Vengeance Day, the past will dictate the future!”

Apollo has spoken, but will he speak his vision into existence? And just who did Apollo see having his back against Trick Melo Gang?

 

Wes Lee heads to the ring.

The North American Champion is here, ready for his fight with #HardJustice this Saturday! Wes gets the mic to say, “Yo~! We are T-minus four days from NXT back on the road, and we are swangin’ through Charlotte, North Cackalacky, for Vengeance Day.” And it’ll be a big day for Wes literally because he has his biggest test in Dijak. Dijak is back and claims to be serving justice, but ultimately he just wants what’s shining on Wes’s shoulder. Saturday will be tough, Wes will probably take an ass-whooping. But just like Wes did with Tony and Carmelo, the Cardiac Kid will rise as your North American Champion!

But wait! Here comes DIJAK! “Mr. Lee, I want you to soak this in. I want you to soak it all in. Enjoy these moments, because these are your final days as NXT North American Champion. That was a real impassioned speech you gave, really powerful and motivating. But the reality is, it’s not gonna make a damn bit of difference. You had EVERY opportunity to hand me that championship, but you were too stupid to take it, weren’t you? And now… On Saturday, you’re gonna be standing across the ring, staring down the biggest and baddest man in the ENTIRE NXT locker room! And when that happens, I’m gonna rip that championship from your cold hands.”

Wes says that is exactly what Dijak will have to do! You will have to pry this title from Wes’s cold, dead hands! But understand that it’s much easier said than done. Wes didn’t win by accident. Every minute of training, every risk Wes took in and out of the ring, and every trial and tribulation, Wes has FOUGHT! When Wes felt like he couldn’t anymore, the chaotic support from every single one of the fans showed him that he can reach levels he had only dreamt of! So Saturday, Dijak isn’t just fighting Wes. He is fighting everyone on the #WesSide. Fans cheer Wes on! But Dijak says Wes might be fighting for the fans, but they won’t be fighting for Wes!

Wait! Von Wagner is here? He and Robert Stone walk out and Stone “apologizes.” But maybe his ears aren’t working properly. Dijak said HE’S the biggest and baddest? Have they forgotten about Von? Von tells Dijak, “Take those stupid sunglasses off, we’re inside. and I’m right here. And the only injustice is me getting overlooked.” Dijak tells Von that his eyes are focused on championship gold. Dijak has no issue with Von whatsoever. Wes says he isn’t sure about that. Fans chant “WAGNER SUCKS!” Wes says Dijak claims to be the biggest and baddest, but Von claims HE is the biggest and baddest, so Dijak is basically calling Von a liar.

Dijak tells Wes to shut up, and he knows what he’s up top. What? Wes just sees an injustice that needs to be fixed! Wes hears Von and Stone loud and clear about being overlooked. Come Tuesday… We may need to have a new #1 contender to the North American title. So uh… If Von happens to beat Dijak tonight, then Von will no longer be overlooked. Von will be looked at as a contender. And Stone says that is why they’re here! Right, right. So let’s please, PLEASE solve this injustice. Or Dijak can just give Von his jacket now.

Winner: DIJAK, by pinfall

Hard Justice has proven to be THE biggest and baddest man in NXT! But will he prove he is championship material? Or will Wes Lee prove he is must-see?

 

Tony D’Angelo and Channing Lorenzo are watching backstage.

Stacks says he can’t stand that Dijak. He’ll probably win the title on Saturday now. But The Don says not to worry about Dijak. “Street justice has no expiration date.” But what was this big impact Stacks was gonna have? Stacks has to take care of a few things. The first or the second? Both. Wow, really? Yeah, he’s the Underboss! That’s what they do. So next week, Stacks gets it done. Tremendous. Now let’s take care of that other thing. They head out, just what is Stacks going to do to handle his business?

 

Nikkita Lyons tweets out her status.

“Surgery was a success. Thank you deeply to the WWE universe, my Lyon Pride, for all the love and support you show. I’ll be back stronger than I’ve ever been. #ReadyToPounce Also, a big thank you to the wonderful surgeons, doctors and nurses.” It may be another setback, but will Lyons use that to set up a huge comeback?

 

McKenzie Mitchell is backstage with more.

McKenzie Mitchell says there are many questions surrounding the attack on Lyons in the NXT parking lot, so she has prepared some footage so that we can get a better idea of what happened. Among those on scene at the time of the attack are Valentina Feroz walking away, Dani Palmer, Arianna Grace and Alexis Leddy walking together going inside, and an unidentified woman driving away. There is also Elektra Lopez walking and talking with newcomer Lola Vice, closest to Nikkita but going on their own path. Freeze here, and you see Tiffany Stratton just going through her bag, but maybe she’s hiding the evidence.

And of course, Zoey Stark is spotted walking away, and even Tatum Paxley and Lash Legend at the very end of the lot. Indi Hartwell and Lyra Valkyria come to Lyons’ aid, and we then spot Wendy Choo peeking out of a car window. Did Wendy witness anything? McKenzie says no one is taking credit for this attack, but she will keep us informed if anyone comes forward with information. Who is behind NXT’s newest whodunnit mystery, and why did they do it?

 

NXT looks closer at Bron Breakker VS Grayson Waller.

The Big Booty Nephew’s NXT record is already golden, but the 21st Century Success Story isn’t impressed. In fact, he’s sick and tired of it. Waller has been running this for the last eight months, and now he’s made the decision that he needs to be champion. New Year’s Evil was going well until a freak accident took Waller out. So at Vengeance Day, their rematch will be inside a STEEL CAGE! Waller says Bron is a wild dog, and Bron admits his temper has gotten the better of him. But no one has taken advantage of it like Waller. Waller is living rent free in Bron’s brain. Bron says his temper has led to both is biggest wins and most crushing losses.

Waller says Bron will beat himself this time. Bron thought he needed to control the anger, but then he realized, with the steel cage all around them, there’s no need to hold back. Bron will beat Waller within an inch of his life, and pin what’s left! But Waller says he can read Bron like a book. And Waller has read that book, so he’ll past this test. Waller will not just beat Bron but he’ll embarrass him! Bron promises to break Waller inside the steel, but Waller went viral the last time he was inside a cage. This is what Waller wanted, but it’ll be Bron’s Vengeance Day. Who survives the steel to bring home the gold?

 

Tyler Bate VS Axiom!

Even with Kemp being a right wanker, the Big Strong Boy and the Undeniable Truth are going to focus on friendly competition! Will Bate continue to get A-Kid vibes from Axiom? Or will Axiom be even better than that?

Bate steps over, headlocks, waistlocks, trips and body scissors to a clutch, TWO! They tie up, Bate cravats and snapmares, but Axiom is right up.

But then Kemp CLBOBBERS them both! And he hits Axiom with an IRISH CURSE BACKBREAKER! Kemp says he told them before, but then Bate chases Kemp off! Will Bate make sure Kemp learns European wrestling is anything but soft?

 

Isla Dawn speaks.

“In my land, Imbolc is the beginning of Spring. It is a time to exhale all that is behind us, and to mark new beginnings. Tonight, on the Eve of Imbolc, we purge the constraints of the past. We purify the negative energy surrounding us, and we transfigure the uninitiated into members of this house. There has always been a rage inside of you,” Alba Fyre. And she just needed a nudge to reveal it. “Shall we?” Fyre nods, and Isla says they are letting go of their unbridled passions, shed their egos, and relinquish their need for control. “These emotions no longer serve us.” Fyre repeats that, and throws water on the fire. With this, the initiation process has begun.

Isla and Fyre smile as they walk into the night. Will the darkness within Fyre grow stronger with the Wicked Witch’s influence?

 

Backstage interview with Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams.

McKenzie is with Trick Melo Gang, and Trick is shaking. But he’s just joking. He’s “shaking like booty meat on a Friday night.” Not because he’s scared, but because it’s cold out. “But Trick Willy can’t lie. This whole Apollo thing, I mean, I don’t know. Should I even go to Vengeance Day? He looks, he sees in the future, that’s some Cleo stuff, man!” Melo has Trick calm down. Of course Trick’s going to Vengeance Day. Apollo can stay daydreaming, but they stay scheming. McKenzie notes the match is Best 2 out of 3, so how does Melo see this playing out? Melo says everyone knows him by now, so we know how Melo sees this playing.

“Apollo needs to realize that this ain’t Jackson, that this ain’t Jordan, that these shots I take don’t ever jam.” Melo is of a different caliber! Melo took Apollo from the sidelines to the headlines. Apollo could have a top combine vertical, and his fingertips still wouldn’t reach Melo’s level. Melo tells Apollo that you can be this or that, but until you beat Melo, you can never be HIM. That’s all it is, and that’s all it’s gonna be. But is Melo overlooking the wild cards in the equation?

 

Roxanne Perez and Toxic Attraction sit down for video interviews.

The NXT Women’s Champion is far, far away from Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne for this final interview before Vengeance Day. Vic Joseph notes Roxie is the youngest woman to ever compete in the Royal Rumble match. How did that feel for her? She was overwhelmed, and so grateful to hear her music hit in front of over 50 THSOUAND people, and make the run down the ramp she’s dreamed of for so long. It was so incredible! Jacy says, “Incredible? More like incredibly pathetic! RoXaNnE~, cOnGrAtUlAtIoNs~! YoU wErE iN tHe RoYaL rUmBlE~!” But you didn’t win! And you’re not going to WrestleMania, but to Vengeance Day, to lose your title.

Gigi says the reason Roxie lost the Rumble was cuz she got put through a table! That look on her face when she realized she got tricked was great. But it’ll all be over for Lil’ Miss Perfect real soon. Roxie says Gigi & Jacy act like they’re best friends, but Roxie knows there is a lot of truth behind what they said to each other last week. Gigi says the truth is that Roxie stands no chance at Vengeance Day. How is Roxie gonna beat them both? She has the same percent chance of winning the Triple Threat as she did winning the Rumble: ZERO! Roxie is good and all, but going against the two baddest women in NXT at the same time, she has NO chance.

Actually, Roxie says she has more of a chance- Jacy cuts her off to say that Roxie had a good run. Eight months in NXT is like a little jog. Good for her! But Roxie peaked at 21 years old. That sucks. But this Saturday, it’s all coming to an end. Roxie says it’s not. But Gigi says it is. At least Roxie can go home to Texas and tell everyone she had a “cup of coffee” in the big time. She just made one critical mistake: messing with Toxic Attraction. And look on the bright side! She can play the “What If” game! What if Roxie stayed in her lane and didn’t punch up? Roxie starts to speak but Jacy cuts her off again, telling her to shut up.

Jacy says “What if” Roxie was a good little girl and didn’t make any waves. Whether Roxie likes it or not, it’s 2v1. Gigi says Roxie’s ride is over, the 15 minutes of fame are over. Roxie storms out, and Toxic Attraction make fun of her for not being able to handle it. Vic says Toxic Attraction weren’t being fair, but Jacy says, “Who cares? After Saturday, she’ll be old news. You’re looking at the next NXT Women’s Champion right here.” Then which one will it be? Gigi says you’re looking at her! Gigi knows everyone, especially Booker, is a big fan of Roxie, and is just trying to find a crack between Toxic Attraction, but there isn’t one.

For almost two years, Toxic Attraction has controlled the NXT Women’s Division. But for the last six weeks, everyone’s been on a vacation from it. That changes on Saturday, as order will be restored when Jacy & Gigi take their rightful spot. This day has been a long time coming, Roxie is just the first one to push it to the edge. But at Vengeance Day, they course correct things back to Gigi- Er, they become NXT Women’s Champion. Jacy notices that “flub,” but before she can respond, ROXANNE POUNCES!! Roxie fires off with all the pent up anger on both of them! She TACKLES Jacy through the set!!

Fans fire up as security rushes in to stop Roxie from tearing into Toxic Attraction more! Will nothing, not even two opponents at once, stop The Prodigy from proving why she IS NXT Women’s Champion?

 

Stevie Turner VS Dani Palmer!

Updated, online and ready to play, the Fourth Dimensional Superstar is finally back in action! Will Stevie prove that she is always two steps ahead and two levels above? Or will Dani delete Stevie before she even gets started?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Stevie has an armlock, then wrenches Dani to wrangle her to the mat. Dani fights up, rolls, backflips and wrenches, but Stevie gets away. They go again, Stevie waistlocks but Dani switches, only for Stevie to elbow free. Stevie headlocks, Dani brings her down to a knee and handstands to slip free! Stevie avoids Dani’s headlock to BOOT, BOOT and then scrape Dani on ropes! Fans boo, Stevie runs side to side to BOOT WASH! Stevie laughs like mad and she pushes Dani down. Stevie then brings Dani up, but Dani pushes her away. Stevie kicks low, CLUBS Dani, then turns her for a HANGING NECKBREAKER!

Dani staggers to ropes, Stevie snapmares her and clamps on a chinlock. Fans rally, Dani fights up, and arm-drags free! Stevie runs back but into an elbow! Dani dodges to LEAPING LARIAT! And again! Dani keeps moving but Stevie kicks low! But Dani JAWBREAKERS back! Dani runs to THESZ PRESS! Dani rains down wild hands, thrashes Stevie around, and then drags Stevie up. Dani runs, but Stevie reels her in by her tights! Stevie whips Dani away, and BOOTS her down! Stevie hauls Dani up, TWISTING DDT!! Stevie isn’t done there, she drags Dani up, for the SIDE EFFECT! Cover, Stevie wins!

Winner: Stevie Turner, by pinfall

Stevie just rerouted Dani’s connection and has her first win in NXT! Will Stevie soon be the number one trend in wrestling?

 

Kiana James is on the phone.

She promises to see “Zack” there, and says, “Love you, too.” Fallon Henley then walks over and asks who she was talking to. No one, don’t worry about it. Fallon knew it! She KNEW Kiana would break Jensen’s heart!! Fallon, calm down, it’s not what you think. You don’t even know why you’re upset right now! Oh? Then who is Zack?! But then in walk the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions. Kayden Carter points out the #1 contenders, and how they’re not talking about their upcoming match. Katana Chance says that sounds like trouble. Kiana says sound travels fast around here. But the only sound the champs will hear on Saturday is, “And NEW…!”

Has Fallon been giving Kiana a lot to drink lately? They’ve been a team for like a week while KC Squared has been a team for over a year! Fallon says with all due respect, we all know, we all get it, Katana & Kayden are BFFs. But Saturday is the biggest match of Fallon’s life, so she is going all out. Kiana says they are going all out. Well, we’ll see about that. But either way, the titles are staying with KC Squared. Katana & Kayden head out, and Fallon gets Kiana’s attention. Stay focused for Saturday, but just know this conversation isn’t over. Fallon heads out, is she making a mountain out of a mole hill?

Gulak has control again but Dempsey headscissors. Gulak moves around, has the legs, but Dempsey keeps shoulders up in the stack. Dempsey pushes Gulak away, they stand, and Gulak facelocks. Dempsey wrenches out, wristlocks, but Gulak grinds forearms. Dempsey wrenches, Gulak gets away, and fans rally up as NXT goes picture in picture.

The two circle, knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder for a test of strength. Dempsey powers Gulak down to his knees, but Gulak powers back up.

Von is fuming backstage.

He throws a chair at the wall, and Stone says it ain’t working. This is not working. Von throws a locker room bench, and shouts, “YA THINK?!” Stone asks a question: Why does Von have Stone managing him? Stone has been managing Von for over a year now, yet he knows nothing about Von! Who IS Von Wagner? He’s big, he growls, but so do a lot of other guys. If Von wants to get to the next level, then he has to show Stone who he is! He has to show us who he is INSIDE! Help Stone help Von! Stone storms off, will these words help unlock Von’s true potential?

Put it together for all these teams! But will this road game be a big win for Chase U? Will Pretty Deadly redo the #SidePlateCheck? Will Gallus Boys be on top? Or will ya bois the NEW~ DAY~, still be your W, W, E, N, X, T, Tag, Team, CHAMPIONS~?


My Thoughts:

Now this was a go-home episode! No need for filling/wasting time with recaps, just give us promos, action and other stuff to hype up what’s coming. Good promo from Apollo Crews, and good response from Trick & Melo. Apollo’s vision seems to foreshadow Oro Mensah being his back-up, as I’m pretty sure I saw his dreadlocks in that silhouette. At the same time, even if someone were to cancel out Trick, that doesn’t guarantee Apollo wins. Melo could win one fall cuz of Trick, Apollo could win one fall cuz Oro cancels out Trick, and then the third fall is truly 1v1. I’m leaning towards Melo since he makes sense as the next challenger to THE NXT Championship.

Speaking of, we got a pretty good promo vignette for Bron VS Waller in the steel cage. And from how they’re talking about it, this is going to be a No Escape Steel Cage match, where the door isn’t an option and climbing the walls won’t win it for you. I am all for that, and I think all Steel Cage matches should be like that to get rid of some of the more overused tropes of a Steel Cage match. Good interview promos from Roxie, Gigi & Jacy, and while part of me wanted Roxie to explode on Toxic Attraction verbally, her going after them directly was just as good. Roxie really should show she has grit, but I feel like her initiating the brawl is tantamount to her standing tall. I hope this doesn’t put the go-home math against her, she only just got that belt.

Stevie Turner’s first match back was pretty good, and I’m actually happy to see they came up with a completely kayfabed chat box for her entrance, as I imagined last week. Good promo from Isla & Fyre to establish that they’re a team now. I was sensing there’d be something building towards Valentine’s Day in a couple weeks, and I think this whole “Who is Zack and what is he to Kiana?” is gonna be the thing. Kiana is gonna reveal that’s like her brother and Fallon’s gonna feel dumb for getting protective of Jensen’s feelings. But with that, I don’t think they win the tag titles at Vengeance Day. That should probably be Isla & Fyre.

We also got a real good “NXT Investigates” promo from McKenzie to point out just how many suspects there really are in the Whodunnit of Lyons’ parking lot attack. Indi VS Stark was a good match to play off that, but I’m starting to wonder if Valentina Feroz did it. Feroz seems like the least likely, so that’d be quite the twist. Given her talk with Elektra Lopez about doing underhanded things, Feroz said she couldn’t do anything to Wendy Choo because Wendy’s a friend. But Feroz and Lyons have no connections, so Feroz could attack her from behind with no problems.

Good promo from Wes Lee, Dijak, Von and Stone to set up Dijak VS Von. That was a good match, but of course Dijak won to have momentum going into the North American title match. I still think Wes wins, but what was really interesting to come out of this was Stone getting fired up telling Von to bring out some personality. Is Von going to suddenly have a gimmick? I can’t even be sure what that’d be. Also, good promo from Tony D and Stacks. I thought Von was gonna be the big guy Stacks went after but then this happened, so maybe Stacks calls out Odyssey Jones or Quincy Elliot to give one of those guys some screen time. And also a win, because I feel like Stacks is gonna bite off more than he can chew.

We also got some great technical wrestling singles matches. Gulak VS Dempsey was not as good as Bate VS Axiom, but I like the detail that Hank takes the hit to tip things in Gulak’s favor. Hank might confront Gulak on that move, and we get closer to Heel Gulak. Then we got just a hilarious and very meta promo out of Bate and Axiom referencing A-Kid. Kemp sticking his nose in things is fine, he needs something to do and honestly should’ve had more time in NXT UK. Bate winning makes sense, he’s also back and needs some momentum. Kemp’s blindside attack definitely earns him a match with both of them in turn, probably winning against Axiom but losing to Bate.

Really good stuff out of the NXT Tag Division tonight, too. The opener of Creeds VS Indus Sher was good, though I feel like maybe they’re going for too real of a fight feel. Julius just came off like he forgot the match flow they discussed. But it was a clever move to have Indus Sher win because of the mishap with Ivy. This will add something more to the Diamond Mine story, and Indus Sher really should be climbing up the rankings. Especially with everything going on in the title story.

Great Triple Threat main event, and as great as all three teams are, it makes sense Chase U won. New Day is Face, Gallus and Pretty Deadly are Heel, so there needed to be another Face team. There’s intrigue in the Chase U story and it can play out in the Fatal 4. And Indus Sher being Heels, if New Day retains (or even if Chase U wins), that’d be a great program going to Stand & Deliver.

My Score: 8.8/10

Mitchell’s AEW Dark Results & Report! (1/31/23)

Orlando stays Dark!

Published

on

Universal Studios is still the AEW Dark Arena!

As they prepare to go after the AEW World Trios Championships, AR Fox & Top Flight reunite to take on The Wingmen: Peter Avalon, Ryan Nemeth & Cezar Bononi!

OFFICIAL RESULTS

  • Six Man Tag: AR Fox & Top Flight VS The Wingmen; Fox & Top Flight win.
  • Red Velvet VS Sofia Castillo; Velvet wins.
  • Zack Clayton VS Fulton; Clayton wins.
  • Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. w/ Arn Anderson VS Rosario Grillo & Dean Alexander; Anderson & Pillman win.
  • Skye Blue VS Renee Michelle; Skye wins.
  • Shane Taylor Promotions VS Mr. G & Dante Casanova; Shane Taylor Promotions wins.
  • Yuka Sakazaki VS Avery Breaux; Yuka wins.
  • The Workhorsemen VS Liam Gray & Adrian Alanis; The Workhorsemen win.
  • Angelico w/ Serpentico & Luther VS Konosuke Takeshita; Konosuke wins.

QUICK NOTES

A solid line-up, and I like that we’re getting to see Brock Anderson & Brian Pillman Jr. in action together after a backstage promo on Elevation not too long ago. Not sure what the team name is but two second generation stars together is a logical combination. Angelico VS Konosuke, that is going to be a great match, but I give the win to Konosuke. Red Velvet is in action again after also being on Elevation, she’s definitely building momentum towards taking on Jade Cargill for Jade’s 50th match. And good to see Shane Taylor Promotions in action here. They’ll be a strong part of the ROH Tag Team Division, even after having lost to Keith Lee after Swerve abandoned Keith.

And good to see AR Fox & Top Flight in action, and against The Wingmen. For one, good to see Avalon, Nemeth & Bononi teaming all together again. And this will be a good match to build momentum for Fox & Flight.
