Winners: Cora Jade & Roxanne Perez, by pinfall (NEW #1 contenders to the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships)
No Breakout Contract needed, #JadeRox are heading to the Great American Bash with this! Will they be able to finally dethrone Toxic Attraction?
The Diamond Mine trains together.
Specifically, Julius & Brutus Creed work on counters while Ivy Nile observes. But then Joe Gacy and The Dyad “come in peace,” because they feel compelled to tell the brothers that if Roderick Strong doesn’t appreciate them, Gacy does. Gacy will welcome them into the fold, just like he did his druids. Julius isn’t sure how Gacy found his way in here, but on behalf of the entire Diamond Mine, they’re not sipping the Kool-Aid. There may be arguments in the group, but Diamond Mine is forever. Strong is glad to hear that. Gacy is such an idiot. Diamond Mine is a family. The strongest in all of NXT! And they’ll show Gacy that strength. Whenever, wherever, they’re ready!
Gacy senses hostility, but not with him. It’s within them. They all want to prove they’re a family? Then we’ll see it tonight. Okay, then! Will Gacy & The Dyad break under the pressure? Strong hugs it out with the Creeds and then fist bumps Damon Kemp. Is Diamond Mine truly forever?
Backstage interview with Toxic Attraction.
We now know it will be Gigi & Jacy VS Cora & Roxie for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships, but Jacy says of course we know, they were watching, too. And she wants to say that she was so… unimpressed. If Cora & Roxie bring that level of performance next week, The Great American Bash will be even easier than they thought. And on the matter of Cora & Roxie being BFFs, Gigi points out they’ve beaten best friends before, as well as enemies and frenemies. Toxic Attraction’s beaten them all, this will be no different. Mandy says “Little Miss Breakout” should’ve just gone and used her contract in the first place.
But if Roxie even thinks she can hold onto that contract for Mandy, no no no. But then Nikkita Lyons walks in! She says Roxie wouldn’t even have the contract if Lyons finished the tournament. But guess we’ll never know. One thing Lyons knows is that she’s back in action, and her eyes are on Mandy. Uh, all eyes are on Mandy all the time, honey. But it sounds like Lyons wants to roar. Well find out tonight, because when you step in the ring with Mandy, SHE is queen of the jungle! Will the Toxic Goddess back up that talk? Or will Mandy find herself in the Lyons den instead?
Giovanni Vinci VS Ikemen Jiro!
The Pride of Italy is fast, strong, and has a sense of style, but is he #StyleStrong? The Handsome One wants to put him to the test! But will Jiro find out that in life, it’s #VeniVidiVinci?
NXT returns and Jiro makes his entrance. The bell rings, Jiro cartwheels but Vinci stays clear. They tie up, Vinci hammerlocks and pushes Jiro, then eggs him on. Jiro circles with Vinci, they tie up, and Vinci wrenches an arm. Vinci wristlocks, Jiro spins through and slips through to armlock back. Jiro hammerlocks but Vinci drop toeholds and walks all over Jiro. Fans boo but Jiro kips up! JACKET PUNCH! JACKET PUNCH! But Vinci gets around to GERMAN SUPLEX! Vinci frowns and puts Jiro in a corner. Vinci CHOPS Jiro and Jiro is stinging! Vinci CHOPS again, then keeps Jiro cornered to CHOP him again!
Fans “WOO~!” while Jiro spasms from how sharp those chops were! Fans want those “One More Time!” but Vinci scoops Jiro. Jiro slips off to SOBAT, JACKET PUNCH, and DISCUS PUNCH! Jiro is still stinging but he whips corner to corner. Vinci reverses, Jiro slips out and GAMANGIRIS! Fans fire up and Jiro slingshots to ARABIAN FLOP as Vinci moves! Vinci springboards to FLYING DDT!! Jiro is dazed and Vinci gets right up! Fans lose their minds over how awesome that was and Vinci reels Jiro in. Vinci gets Jiro up, for the SIT-OUT BOMB! Cover, Vinci wins!
Winner: Giovanni Vinci, by pinfall
Another dominant win with some serious style! Has Vinci proved he’s not only #StyleStrong, but that he has what it takes to hold gold?
Fallon Henley, Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen are in the back.
And the good ol’ boys are the NEW NXT UK Tag Team Champions! Briggs & Jensen are back stateside after that historic Fatal 4, what will they have to say about being Yanks with UK gold?
Backstage interview with Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams.
After last week’s big title victory, McKenzie asks the North American Champion how he plans to keep his momentum going. Melo says the question should be, “How did you become The A Champion without even trying?” Trick says that’s a great question, and Melo says it takes things like hustle, swagger, loyalty, confidence, and disrespect. All of those things make you the A Champion. That is why no one will get one over on him, no one can tell him a damn thing, and why every rule has an exception, when you’re an exceptional talent. But then Grayson Waller walks in and says what a big win over Tony D’Angelo, and all by himself! What, all by himself? YES, all by himself!
But the brass knuckles- What? Brass knuckles? You mean bare knuckles! Anyway, what’s Waller up to? Well, he’s a little embarrassed, but all his mates back home are big Melo fans, so could he sign some things for them? Sure, sure, they love the kids. Waller took care of Solo, Melo can do this. Melo signs a basketball, and then a shirt for Waller’s mom, and some pictures for Jimmy. He’s jacked in these 8×10’s, y’know? Waller thanks Melo for this and heads out. Melo says this is why he likes Waller. But is Waller really doing this just for his friends? Or is he up to something devious?
Briggs, Jensen & Fallon head to the ring!
The NEW NXT UK Tag Team Champions and the Cowgirl strut out and fans chant, “You Deserve It!” Jensen says it for himself, “AND NEW~!” No, no, you gotta say it harder, they didn’t hear you in the back. “AND NEW~ NXT UK Tag Team Champions~!” Briggs says y’all know they love to fight, so they crossed continents and fought the best the UK had to offer. They put up a hell of a fight, but y’all best believe they brought it all right back to ’em! “U S A! U S A!” Briggs says to Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter, injuries are part of the game, so when those guys return, the rematch is waiting for them.
Jensen asks Briggs if he remembers the first time they met. Briggs looked Jensen square in the eyes and said, “You got a lot of potential, kid. Wanna roll with me?” And ever since, Jensen has busted his ass for the great fans here right now! And he busts his ass for Briggs! So right here, in front of the world, Jensen thanks Briggs for picking him. The two hug it out and fans cheer. Even Fallon looks a bit touched. Briggs say she is proud of Jensen. Fans chant again, “You Deserve It!” Briggs says there’s still one thing left they have to do now that they have these gorgeous tag team titles! Fallon says, “Let’s drink some beer!”
But just as the party gets started, here come Pretty Deadly! Kit Wilson says, “You have GOT to be kidding me!” Briggs & Jensen are NXT UK Tag Team Champions? Elton Prince says, “Those titles were once gorgeous, because they were made that way by the two tastiest snacks in NXT. And now they’re being spoiled by the grubby hands of American trailer trash!” They should at least wipe them clean of the country dirt and swamp water! They probably smell, too. No, definitely! Jensen says the only thing he smells is an Alabama ass-whooping coming to Pretty Deadly. Wilson mocks Jensen, “Ah smell’n Alabama ass-whooping comin’ to you, ROLL TIDE~!”
The fans actually chant “Roll Tide,” but Prince tells “you two Muppets don’t deserve those titles.” All Briggs & Jensen have done is lower the bar. And now, there’s only one team that can raise them up again. That is the former NXT UK Tag Team Champions, #YESBOY, who held those belts for a GLORIOUS 287 days! Alright, Zoolander twins, SHUT UP! Brooks & Briggs know the lineage. And there are a lot of great teams who’ve held them. But Pretty Deadly ain’t one of ’em! #YESBOY! But the fact is, they’ll be fighting champions both here and in the UK, so talk all you want, or… they can get to fighting!
Actually, hold on. The champs will make that decision for Pretty Deadly. Jensen DECKS Prince! Wilson goes after him but Briggs is on him with a waistlock! Atomic drop, and Fallon SLAPS Wilson! Then Briggs lariats Wilson out, Jensen throws Prince out, and then the champs BLAST Prince onto Wilson! Pretty Deadly is in retreat, but will the British be coming for those belts at the Great American Bash?
Bron Breakker speaks.
“NXT is my life! It’s time for me to step up and be a leader. In the ring, my veins are bulging, my heart is pumping, it’s a white knuckle thrill-ride.” The high-energy, high-intensity and high-impact TWO-TIME NXT Champion is ready to prove why he is champion, but he’ll be face-to-face with his next challenger, Cameron Grimes, later tonight!
Kayden & Katana storm into the women’s locker room.
“Every freakin’ time!” Kayden is so sick of this! Katana says they’re better than those two AND Toxic Attraction! Okay, what’s Tatum Paxley looking at them for? Nothing, just giving them space. Well mind your own damn space then! Uh, don’t get at Tatum just cuz you lost. Tatum heads out and KC Squared says no one is on their level. But will they be able to prove that?
Indi Hartwell VS Kiana James!
Everyone knows #IndiWrestling is always #IMPRESSIVE, but it seems The Calculator needs to see that data first hand. Will Kiana get her numbers crunched tonight?
NXT returns and Kiana makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two tie up. Indi wrenches, wristlocks, but Kiana wrenches back. Kiana taunts Indi but Indi slips around to a waistlock. Kiana reaches out, gets the ropes and she bucks Indi off. Indi says she’s smarter, but then Indi rushes in. Kiana kicks, Indi blocks, but Kiana uses that to reel Indi in for a headlock. Kiana wrenches, wristlocks, but Indi arm-drags! Indi taunts Kiana, then arm-drags her again and again. Kiana avoids the third, but not the leg sweep! Cover, ONE! Indi arm-drags again and she grinds Kiana down. Fans rally as Indi grinds the arm, but Kiana moves around.

Indi grows a bit frustrated but she grabs at Kiana’s legs. Kiana kicks her away, runs in, but into a fireman’s carry! Kiana slips off, shoves Indi, but Indi goes up and out to DECK Kiana again! Fans fire up as Indi springboards, but the Pretty Savage FLOPS as Kiana moves! Kiana trips Indi, high stacks, with feet on the ropes! The ref doesn’t see it, Kiana wins!!
Winner: Kiana James, by pinfall
Kiana talks trash, having used her brain and a lot of cheating to get this win! Will Indi be able to rebound after Kiana stole that win?
Tony D’Angelo and The Family meet at a bridge.
And with a splash into the water, it seems Two Dimes just got dropped. Tony gave him the world, and what did he do? He made a move for his chair. But now, Dimes sleeps with the fishes. The stupid mug. But then a call comes in. Tony answers, and it’s Santos Escobar. Escobar asks if he’s talking to the new North American Champion, Tony D. Oh, real funny, wise guy! Tony tosses his phone! He’s done with this! Will The Done find a way to avenge himself against Legado del Fantasma?
Wes Lee speaks.
“Last week, I was in the middle of the ring, pouring my heart out. Baring my soul. And Trick Williams ruins my moment. Trick, your biggest mistake is thinking that my honesty and openness to my feelings makes me soft. The fact that I wear my heart on my sleeve makes me weak? Bing bang, dog. It’s all strength. And next week, at the Great American Bash, you will see that strength on full display, and I will have no pity for you because of how you disrespected me as a man. No one and no thing will stop me from finding my inner peace in that ring, especially not Trick Williams.”

A massive win for Gacy and his team, because maybe they’re right! Diamond Mine is cracking, and it’s all because of Strong’s ego! The Creeds tell Strong that, and Ivy Nile can’t help but sigh. Will any of this get through to Strong? Or will the cracks become fissures and bring the Diamond Mine down?
Melo & Trick head out.
But McKenzie catches up to them to ask some more questions before next week. Trick says he knows all about next week’s match with “Afro Thunder.” But Trick says the bigger, badder man is gonna beat that bum into oblivion at the Bash! It is what it is! No, McKenzie was asking Melo about defending the North American Championship next week against Waller. Wait, what? Who? They’re boys! Apparently a contract was signed by both Waller and Melo so the match is official. Sign what? THAT SNAKE! He tricked you into signing all that stuff, and there’s probably NO Jimmy! Well tell Waller that when you play Melo, you play yourself! Melo is walking into the Bash as champion, and walking out with that W and still A Champion!
NXT Medical has an update on Alba Fyre.
After the trauma to her throat from the baseball bat, the doctors have- Lash Legend pushes the doctor aside to take over. Due to the brutal beatdown that ya girl, the one and only, you can’t clone her, Lash put on the firemaker, Fyre is on the shelf permanently. And that’s how Fyre found out that Lash doesn’t just talk the talk, she walks the walk and makes everyone’s mouths drop. So NXT, stay outta her way, okay? But is “permanent” the official diagnosis? Or will Fyre rise like a phoenix and show Lash who the real legend is?
Everyone in Diamond Mine is upset.
Brutus says they can’t be losing like that! Julius tosses a table while Brutus asks how they even lost! Strong asks them what the hell! They had them beat, on the same page, but all the Creeds had to do was listen! All they do IS listen to him! Well then they’re not hearing what he’s saying! What is he even talking about?! Julius tells Strong that they’re not going on and on about this. They listen to him, do what he says to a T, and he still points blame at them! Oh, that sounds like an excuse. But Strong has no choice! He’s gonna teach them first hand! Strong & Kemp VS The Creeds, Great American Bash, FOR THE NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS!
Kemp stares at the Creeds, then leaves with Strong. Either way, Diamond Mine stays golden, but will it matter when it all comes crumbling down?

Solo Sikoa vents backstage.
He can’t believe he lost to Waller last week. The turnbuckle pad being snatched of all things. Solo had that won and everyone knew it. Apollo Crews says he’s been there plenty of times. Solo will get Waller back for that so he should hold his head high. Apollo knows Solo has something special. Solo says that means a lot coming from Apollo. But Xyon walks in and says what’s the point of taking the advice of Apollo? Apollo asks Xyon, “Have we met?” Xyon tells Apollo it has been three years since he’s been here. A lot has changed in NXT. If Apollo has come to turn a new leaf, then he should just leave.
Apollo says, “Who’s the one giving out advice now?” Xyon says if Apollo really wants to become the perfect superstar, he should accept that he can’t. Because that’s Xyon. Oh, really? Xyon is 6’3″, handsome, athletic, can pull of a suit. He’ll be in TV shows and all that. Okay, okay, Xyon must’ve been practicing that pitch, huh? Sounds rehearsed. But yes, on paper, Xyon’s future is bright. Xyon probably sees it, right? But from what Apollo sees, it isn’t. Will Apollo show Xyon just who here is the “perfect superstar?”
JD McDonagh speaks.
“They say nice guys finish last. Maybe that explains why I always finish in first. I’m a genuinely mild-mannered guy, but nothing upsets me more than when my athletic IQ is challenged. I’m upset when I’m in that ring, and I am tired of seeing guys taking plays out of my playbook. So I’m going to let you know what I’ve kept secret: I’m the necessary evil needed to bring balance to NXT. I’m not just the Ace in the UK, I’m the Ace everywhere I go. See you real soon.”
Wade Barrett is in the ring.
“Ladies and gentlemen, next week, at the Great American Bash, the NXT Championship will be on the line, so without further ado, please welcome the challenger, Cameron Grimes!” The Carolina Caveman makes his entrance, shakes Barrett’s hand, and then Barrett introduces the champion, Bron Breakker! The Big Booty Nephew makes his entrance and fans bark it up. Barrett says next week- Bron says respectfully, he and Grimes can handle this. They’re just going to talk. Barrett bows out and Bron says he has had the great honor defending this title against a lot of great superstars, but something about Grimes is different.
Grimes will bring it, they will both leave it all in the ring, because Grimes has everything to gain and nothing to lose. Grimes says it may seem that way, right? But for Bron, next week is just another big defense. What’s the worst that happens if he loses? He is still Bron Breakker! He loses that belt, he’ll surely be brought up to Raw or SmackDown. Bron loses the belt and probably gets put on SummerSlam! Grimes lost his North American Championship, and instead of going back for that, he decided to go all in on Bron Breakker. That’s what makes them different. Grimes knows he has no back-up plan. If he loses this match, that’s it for him.
But Grimes figures Bron must know about back-up plans, considering this was the back-up plan. Bron wanted to be in football, but then the Ravens said and told him he’s not good enough. Bron then called up his dad and told him, “Daddy, please! I always wanted to be in the WWE~!” And now, here he is. Bron says, “Wow, man! I did not expect that from you. What, you wanna bring my father into this?” Grimes is just speaking truth. Bron says we all know what happened the last time someone brought up Bron’s family. Fans cheer and bark, and Bron says he thought this was about respect. Grimes can say what he wants with his cheap suit and phony smile, it won’t change anything.
Next week, Cameron Grimes is going TO THE MOON~, but he won’t like what he finds when he gets there. Bron will just spear Grimes in half! Grimes says unlike those guys Bron was talking on the field, Grimes gets knocked down but gets right back up! Bron may knock Grimes down again but Grimes will get up. And if Bron does it again, Grimes will get back up! Well Grimes can keep getting up, because Bron will keep knocking him down and make him regret challenging him! Then when they’re done, Grimes can call his buddy, Ted DeBiase and ask him what to do. Grimes smirks but Bron says he’s bigger, stronger and faster.
Yeah, we get it! We all see it! But what Bron doesn’t have, and Grimes will say it until his lungs run out of air, Bron doesn’t have heart! Not like Grimes has! But it isn’t Bron’s fault. It’s just genetics. Daddy didn’t have heart, neither! That’s why Rick was never world champion, and that’s why he- Bron grabs Grimes by the neck! No more talk, Bron lifts Grimes! Grimes slips out and gets to a corner, Bron runs in but is sent hard into buckles! Bron being bigger and stronger backfires, and Grimes RAMS him in again! The buckle pops off and the whole top rope is down! Fans lose their minds and even Grimes is shocked at what just happened!
Refs rush out, and Bron is clutching one of his shoulders. Grimes tells Bron that at 100%, Grimes can’t beat him. But it looks like he isn’t 100%. Grimes tells the medics to make sure Bron is still okay to compete, because Grimes wants to take that title TO~ THE~ MOON! Will Grimes finally break through by breaking Bron?
A pretty good episode, especially as the go-home to next week’s Great American Bash special. But it sure feels like there are a lot of promos these days. Wes Lee called out Trick for a match next week, Lash talked trash on Fyre to set up a “miraculous” return from Fyre, and we got another vignette from Jordan Devlin McDonagh to hype up his move to NXT USA. I did like the trick Waller pulled off by giving Melo a ton of things to sign. I guess the title match contract was somewhere in all those 8x10s, though I couldn’t tell. Melo VS Waller will be a very good title match but I would think Melo retains. Wendy had a good vignette promo to call out Tiffany, they’ll have a good match but is it really GAB worth?
I give NXT credit for explaining away the release of Troy “Two Dimes” Donovan, but it seems surprising that Dimes tried to go after Tony. It was a bit weak that Escobar called Tony to troll him, though. I would’ve tried to make it that Legado did something to Dimes to add to the heat between the factions. Either way, Tony should get a new henchmen so we can still have a Six Man Tag rematch. And a good promo from Briggs, Jensen & Fallon to celebrate the tag title win, and then a good interaction and brawl with Pretty Deadly. The Great American Bash is already pretty stacked, so maybe the NXT UK Tag Team Championships end up closer to SummerSlam week.
The closing segment of Bron and Grimes was pretty good. The promos were alright, with Grimes recycling a bit of what he said before, and as Bron pointed out, recycling some of what Gacy used. But breaking off the top rope was a great spot to go with, and how Bron’s shoulder is kayfabe hurt now. It’ll put the pressure back on Bron since even Grimes admits Bron is the physical favorite when 100%. Grimes touting Bron could be called-up to RawDown after losing is a natural conclusion to draw, but I don’t see it happening yet because I don’t see Bron losing the title again so soon. As I’ve said before, it feels like they booked Bron into a tough spot because he got to the top so fast.
Match card wise, it felt backwards to me on some level. The NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship Contender’s match is important, shouldn’t it have been later in the night? But at the same time, WWE likes to open strong and that was a very good opening match. Cora & Roxie win to mostly preserve Roxie’s Breakout contract, just as Mandy mocked her for doing. KC Squared seems to be making a Heel turn as they got attitude with the other women in the locker room. Toxic Attraction had a decent promo to call Cora & Roxie out, and a good interaction with Lyons. Lyons VS Mandy being the main event match worked out to be a good go-home segment, but perhaps the women’s title stays off the Bash because again, this is a pretty full card as it is.
Sanga wins in a decent match, but for the brawl starting it off hot, it kinda turned into a slog. But Xyon uses the loss to get attitude with Apollo, and that will be a great match. Indi losing to Kiana was a surprise, but it seems they want Indi to take the slow burn to finally getting the top title. And of course Vinci wins against Jiro, Vinci has a strong push behind him, and he will surely want after a title as soon as Great American Bash is over. Why else would they keep him in NXT and rebrand him when he could’ve just been with Imperium on SmackDown?
And we got a good promo segment from Diamond Mine and Gacy’s group, but maybe only a fairly good Six Man Tag. It was mostly difficult to type “Dyad 1” and “Dyad 2” all the time, and not just wanting to write “druid,” or even “Gibson” and “Drake” since it is so obvious that’s them in those hoods. Gibson & Drake just need to be revealed already. And though Gacy & Dyad got the win, I’m surprised we’re getting the Diamond Mine fighting over the tag titles first. I have a feeling the Creeds retain, and that could be the breaking point for Diamond Mine, which Gacy then takes advantage of so that we get Creeds VS Dyads for SummerSlam week.
My Score: 8.2/10

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?

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. Dijak throws hands on Von! Von hits back, and fans fire up as the brawl is on!
Von clotheslines Dijak up and out! Refs rush out to stop this, but fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Will we see this brawl turn into a match? WE WILL! Wes gets out of the way, who wins this battle of behemoths?
DIJAK VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

Von whips corner to corner, Dijak reverses hard and Von falls to the mat! Dijak storms up, drags Von up and turns him to a NECKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Von is still in this but Dijak grits his teeth. Dijak clamps on a cravat and grinds Von with a neck wrench.
Von endures, fans rally up, and Von fights up. Von throws body shots, then haymakers! Von whips Dijak to a corner, then lifts Dijak for a POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Von is annoyed but he watches Dijak stand. Von CLUBS Dijak, HEADBUTTS him, then ROCKS him with a right. Von whips, Dijak ducks ‘n’ dodges, then holds ropes! Von runs in but is sent into ropes! Von sputters, Dijak stomps him down, and then rains down fists! Stone protests but Dijak lets off to have the neck wrench again. Von endures, fights up, and he throws body shots. NXT returns to single picture as Von throws hands, but Dijak throws elbows and knees!
Dijak SMASHES then DISCUS LARIATS! Cover, TWO! Wes is on commentary and says it was only right that we find out who is truly the biggest and baddest in NXT. Dijak choke grips but Von fights free! Dijak wrenches, mule kicks, then back elbows hard! Dijak reels Von in but Von suplexes Dijak into buckles!! Fans lose their minds while Dijak flops down.

Dijak shoves Von away and ROCKS him at the ropes! Dijak runs but Von KNEES him low! Von runs, to RAM Dijak!
Dijak rebounds to RAM Von, then he ELBOWS, ELBOWS and CLUBS Von! Then he SUPERKICKS! Dijak runs, into a BOOT! Cover, TWO!! Dijak survives and Stone can’t believe it! Fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” and Von waits on Dijak. Dijak slowly rises, Von choke grips, but Dijak flips through the lift! To choke grip and HIGH JUSTICE!! Cover, TWO?!! Von survives and the fans are thunderous! Von goes to a corner, Dijak storms up, “This is Awesome!” as Dijak throws elbows. Dijak hoists Von up top, CLUBS him in the chest, then climbs up after him. Dijak choke grips again, but Von elbows Dijak over and over and over!
Von CLUBS away on Dijak, roars, and hits a SUPER BUTTERFLY SLAM!! Cover, TWO!?!? Fans are thunderous, Stone is beside himself, and Wes is loving this! Von gets Dijak up, OLYMIPC- NO, Dijak slips out to have the HAMMERLOCK SLEEPER! Von flails, reaches out, Stone coaches him, but Dijak says this is gonna be Wes’s future! Von is fading out, then Dijak torture racks! FEAST YOUR EYES!! Cover, Dijak wins!
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?

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?
Charlie Dempsey VS Drew Gulak w/ Hank Walker!
The Son of the Gentleman Villain cost the Philly Stretcher and his blue collar protégé last week, so this is all about vengeance before Vengeance Day! Will Gulak lock Dempsey down? Or will the Philly Stretcher be the one getting stretched?
The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Gulak headlocks for a takeover. Dempsey fights up, hits a back suplex, but Gulak holds on! 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. They go shoulder to shoulder again and now Gulak powers Dempsey back. Dempsey bridges, but Gulak has the cover! TWO as Dempsey gets an arm up! Gulak puts that arm down, TWO as the other arm comes up! Gulak has both arms, TWO as Dempsey bridges back up! Gulak stands over Dempsey, brings him up, but Dempsey monkey flips! Dempsey rolls back to a cover, TWO as Gulak sunset flips! TWO, and Dempsey headlocks to keep Gulak down! Fans applaud as the technical exchange continues.

Dempsey goes for a trip but Gulak uses that to get a cover, TWO! Dempsey fights up, Gulak facelocks, then scoops and SLAMS Dempsey into ropes! Dempsey clutches his legs but Gulak storms up.

Hank is dazed, did he just get used as a pawn? Is Gulak using his own student to help him cut corners?
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?
Triple Threat Tag: The Dyad VS Malik Blade & Edris Enofe VS Chase U!
The New Day, Pretty Deadly and Gallus are waiting as there’s still room for one more for Vengeance Day! Will Rip Fowler & Jagger Reed plant the roots of The Schism in Charlotte? Will the underestimated underdogs finally unlock their potential? Or will Andre Chase & Duke Hudson share this #TeachableMoment with everyone? We find out, after the break!
NXT returns as Malik & Edris make their entrance, followed by Chase U’s entrance. In this kind of Triple Threat Tag, only two teams are legal at any given time, so Malik & Edris agree to let the other teams start. Duke and Rip circle as fans rally behind Chase U. Duke and Rip tie up, Rip knees low and whips Duke, but Duke blocks! Duke glares at Rip, reels him in and scoops to SLAM!

Or will ya bois the NEW~ DAY~, still be your W, W, E, N, X, T, Tag, Team, CHAMPIONS~?
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!
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!
- 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.
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.
