Melo is shocked! Not only did he miss, Apollo turned that turnover into points! But is this game between them far from over?


Tony D’Angelo and Channing Lorenzo walk the streets.

Stacks asks The Don why they’re here. Tony says it’s business. This bridge represents the beginning, and in some cases, the end. Tony drops in two dimes for the lost. Stacks says rats get what they deserve. Tony tells Stacks that he did a lot this past year. He proved he was a solid earner, and he’s taken bullet for Tony time and time again. That whole Dijak thing didn’t end how they wanted. Stacks apologizes and says he’d do anything for Tony. But if this is it, then Stacks is loyal until the end. Do what you gotta do. Stacks turns his back to The Done, and the Don… pats him on the shoulder. Stacks’ days as a soldier are over. Because now, it’s time to become the Underboss.

Wait, seriously? He means that? Yes, this is the family crest. Now that Stacks is a part of the family, he gets to wear it. Stacks thanks Tony and they hug it out. Tony says he’s proud of Stacks and gives him a kiss on the cheek. With Stacks moving up in the world, will the D’Angelo Family soon take over NXT?


Backstage interview with Tiffany Stratton.

McKenzie Mitchell is with the returning superstar and notes that last week, Tiffany made her return by calling out the entire roster. Tiffany stops her there, and says she didn’t ask for this interview, McKenzie did. So just get to the point. McKenzie wanted to share some footage showing that Tiffany’s return wasn’t received very well. Footage plays showing that sometime last night, Tiffany walked up to her private locker room, but it was locked! She banged on the door, and Indi Hartwell opened the door.

Tiffany asked Indi what she’s doing in there, and Indi said, “Oh, you think you deserve a locker room bigger than the one for the rest of the division, right?” Tiffany said, “Duh.” Well uh, it isn’t your locker room. You wanna call the rest of the division “pigs,” then you can dress somewhere else. Tiffany got upset, and didn’t even realize Indi still went to NXT. Back to the present, Tiffany is sure McKenzie enjoyed that. “That footage is disturbing and alarming. And did you see the way Indi was dressed? She could fit her entire wardrobe in a garbage bag. Same goes for the entire locker room. I guess I’ll just have to show them that there is only one superstar in the Women’s Division, and that’s me.”

Tiffany storms off, but will she soon realize she is anything but the Center of the Universe?


Toxic Attraction heads to the ring!

After a close call in the Women’s Battle Royal, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne are BOTH contenders to the NXT Women’s Championship. Vengeance Day is going to see a Triple Threat, but that match can only be won by one woman. Gigi & Jacy both get mics and Jacy says they aren’t usually the ones to say “we told you so,” but… “WE TOLD YOU SO~!” They promised that the announcement would be, “Your winners,” and that is exactly what was said! Alicia, you did your job, kudos!

But the best part was watching all of the fans’ minds explode when it came down to the two of them! The fans mustered up every ounce of athleticism that they had just to get out of their chairs and elbows the people next to each other to say, “This is it! Toxic Attraction is done! They’re breaking up! History is unfolding right before our very eyes!” They were dueling between Jacy and Gigi, and for a hot sec, Jacy did try to eliminate Gigi. And vice-versa. But in the end, they’re a team! They think together, act together, and even fall to the floor at the same time together! There’s no animosity, jealousy or elephant in the room. Just Toxic Attraction doing what needs to be done.

And the revenge tour is in full effect! Full steam ahead to North Carolina! Vengeance Day, BABYYY~! And Roxanne Perez, they promise that you will regret the day you became champion. Because come February 4th, all Roxie will be hearing, “Your winners, and NEW~!” WAIT, here comes Lyra Valkyria! And all she is hearing are a couple of toxic crows demanding to be heard. IF it wasn’t for Cora Jade, Lyra would be flying to Vengeance Day while Gigi & Jacy would be at home, pinning the blame on each other. But it’s okay. Lyra will get her opportunity. She doesn’t see a champion when she looks at either of them!

Uh, sorry, Lyra, but where they hell did you come? You’re new, we get it. You dropped from the sky or whatever. But Gigi & Jacy have been champions for longer than Lyra’s even had her wings. Lyra will learn that Toxic Attraction runs things here in NXT. So nice try in wanting that Toxic Attraction rub, but back of the line ya go! Clearly, Lyra isn’t taking any of their shine. Lyra says all she sees are two women who know they can’t beat Roxanne by themselves, so they have to do it together. Well, they attack Lyra together! They stomp away, but here comes ROXIE! The champ runs off Gigi & Jacy!

Roxie helps Lyra stand up, Gigi & Jacy tell them to calm down. Roxie invites them back into the ring, but perhaps this showdown will have to wait for when Toxic Attraction wants it.


The Creed Brothers warm up backstage.

Brutus says it’s HIS turn with Jinder Mahal! Julius says he started this, he’s going to finish it. No, Julius had his chance! Brutus tells Ivy and Tatum that Julius is trying to take another turn when it’s Brutus’! Ivy says, “Here we go again.” And what’s she mean by that? Ivy is going to talk and they’re going to shut up and listen! What happened to them? What happened to The Creed Brothers who were motivated and disciplined? When they were locked in, they were the best tag team, with the titles to prove it. And now they’re after revenge, respect, retribution, whatever this is! But it’s far from where they need to be.

Indus Sher has global accolades, and Jinder is a former WWE World Champion. Ivy knew Julius was going to lose, and that the Creeds were gonna lose the tag match. Okay, so hypothetically, Ivy is right. She IS right!! Now grow a set and get back to being the Creeds, not whatever this is. Ivy storms off, and the brothers admit, she’s got a point. Will Diamond Mine be stronger than ever if they focus on gold?


Stevie Turner is live.

She says hey to chat and says she’s giving her reactions to last week’s Women’s Battle Royal. Cora Jade being out quick, she won’t get over that for some time. But what Stevie can’t get over is Kiana James saving Fallon Henley, and Elektra Lopez helping out Valentina Feroz. Forget alliances! This is every woman for herself! Sol’s Kofi-style save is definitely TikTok viral material, and Wendy Choo broke her fall with her own pillow. At least, until Lopez pulled the rug out from under her. Stevie loves the utter chaos, and no algorithm could put that draw together. But if Stevie had been in it, she would’ve won it. That day is approaching, so subscribe to the life of Stevie!


Alba Fyre VS Sol Ruca!

The match that Isla Dawn ruined is finally happening, though the Fire Keeper was a bit… aggressive in getting the Surfer Girl to agree to it. Will Fyre burn too hot for Sol? Or will Sol make sure not to wipe out in this big opportunity?

NXT returns and Sol makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Fyre puts Sol in the corner. Sol breaks away and the two reset. Fans rally, they tie up, and Fyre waistlocks to SLAM Sol down! Fyre goes to a ghost pin, TWO! Sol drop toeholds and floats to a facelock. Fans applaud, Fyre wrenches out and WRINGS the arm, but Sol handsprings through! Sol comes back, Fyre waistlocks, and Fyre shoves Sol to a corner. Sol goes up and over, runs corner to corner and goes up to CROSBODY! Cover, TWO! Sol facelocks, backslides, TWO! Fyre escapes but Sol deflects the superkick!

Fans cheer the standoff and the two shake hands. Sol and Fyre tie up, but Fyre drops to get the leg. Fyre trips Solo, Sol kicks Fyre away and kips up. Sol runs in, Fyre sidesteps and hip tosses but Sol handsprings through! Sol hits a FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Sol keeps her cool, but Fyre is getting heated. Fyre throws body shots, she throws Sol down then stomps away! Fans rally for Sol while Fyre cools off. Fyre CLUBS Sol, drags her up, and suplexes to a GOURDBUSTER! Fyre PENALTY KICKS Sol, but Sol stays up, so Fyre KICKS her again! Fyre drags Sol up, Gory Especials, but Sol kicks to resist! Fyre turns Sol around to CHOP!

Fyre whips Sol to a corner, Sol reverses but Fyre goe sup. Sol catches Fyre, but Fyre slips free to SUPERKICK! Sol flounders to the corner and Fyre fires off forearms to the back! And stomps! The ref counts, Fyre backs off, but then Isla Dawn appears in the perch! She smiles at Fyre while Fyre scowls. Fyre goes back to Sol, but Sol goes up the corner, IMPLODING CUTTER!! Cover, Sol wins!!

Winner: Sol Ruca, by pinfall

Fyre got put out by the #SolSnatcher! Will Ruca be red hot after a win off the former NXT UK Women’s Champion?


Dijak speaks.

“Tony D’Angelo and his goon learned the hard way exactly what ‘street justice’ really means. Next up on the docket for me is Wes Lee.” Dijak isn’t back in NXT to make friends. He’s here to collect punitive damages. And beating Wes will fill Dijak’s bag with something he never had: championship gold. Dijak would offer Wes a plea bargain, but Wes is probably too stupid to take it. Wes has no chance of walking out of Charlotte, North Carolina with that title. “High justice awaits you. You have 18 days, Mr. Lee. Because for you it won’t be Vengeance Day, it’ll be judgment day!” Will Dijak give Wes and the world a feast for the eyes? Or will Wes be the one who is must-see?


Sit-down interview with Grayson Waller.

Vic Joseph notes people have been talking about the big match-up last week at New Year’s Evil, but what is on Waller’s mind? Waller says that was supposed to be the night he “saved” NXT. We’ve all seen Bron’s run. He’s beaten everyone. “But he couldn’t beat Grayson Waller.” Highlights show that Bron was everything Waller knew he’d be: fast, strong, athletic, and stupid. Waller had Bron’s ever move from “moment one to moment done.” Losing that match had nothing to do with Bron and everything to do with the one thing out of his control: the ring itself. The middle rope broke because Waller put Bron through it!

Then 20 idiots had to run out and fix the ring. If they’d done their job right, Walelr would be champion! But they messed up, so that messed Waller up. Vic fast-forwards to “the knee seen around the world.” That somersault adlib, Vic thought Waller really was going to win. Yeah, knee to forehead, bang, done, except credit where it’s due, Bron survived. But Waller always has a back-up plan, and that was his baller elbow. But then he falls out of the ring, he hears the count, loses via count-out. And to be honest, he doesn’t feel like a loser. Bron was half dead in the ring! Waller is as much a champion as Bron is! So much so, Waller has his own copy of the title.

Waller puts the belt on his shoulder. He looks pretty good, doesn’t he? Vic says next time Waller can win the title for real, is at Vengeance Day. It’s a rematch, but inside a STEEL CAGE! Waller says most people don’t wanna be stuck in a cage with Bron. Waller isn’t most people. There is nowhere he wants to be more than stuck in a cage with “that dog.” HBK says he wants a decisive winner? No problem, Shawn! Waller’s got you! He’ll make sure of it! It doesn’t matter if the cage breaks or the ring breaks, Waller makes sure to pin Bron! It could be inside on the mat, outside on the cement, he’s winning!

This is the most important event in NXT history! NXT is back on the road, starting with Charlotte, NC! And who better to drive than Waller? Think of all the superstars that have been in Charlotte. “WOO!” And not one of them can hold a candle to Waller! Waller takes Bron, takes the title, and takes Charlotte viral when he becomes the NEW NXT Champion. The 21st Century Success Story is ready, will the Grayson Waller Effect finally take effect on Vengeance Day?


Gallus speaks.

Mark Coffey & Wolfgang are headed to gorilla as Mark says, “We’ve been away, haven’t we, Wolfie?” “Aye, Mark.” “And we’re back now, aren’t we, Wolfie?” “Aye, Mark. And we’re about to remind Briggs & Jensen, and every other team out there, why it’s Gallus Boys On Top.”

Briggs & Jensen also speak.

The Country Boys and Fallon are also on their way, and Briggs says, “Ain’t no free ones with us, Gallus. You already know that.” Jensen says, “These country boys’re ’bout to raise some hell tonight. Both teams are ready, both teams are tough, but which team will truly be on top after tonight? That match is on, after the break.


Alba Fyre is after a ref backstage!

Other refs try and get her to stand down as she has her bat pressed into the neck of the ref who called her match against Sol Ruca! He apologizes, Kayden Carter & Katana Chance tell Fyre to stand down, and Fyre listens. The refs get their fellow ref out of there, and KC Squared explain to Fyre that this could get her fired! Fyre is furious and they ask what’s going on. She doesn’t know! She can’t win title matches, she can’t win against rookies, so she doesn’t know! Katana says Fyre should be patient. It took KC Squared a long time to get the Women’s Tag titles, but look at them now! They’re the longest reigning tag champs, and there’s not a team that can beat them.

So Fyre should just chill. Oh, is that right? Then maybe Fyre can set her eyes on them! Tag Team Champion, Alba Fyre, that sounds good to her. Well, not unless she can become two people or has split personalities. KC Squared saved her ass and she’s gonna come at them like this? Katana has Kayden cool off, and says that they’re ready to take on anyone, but Fyre doesn’t have a partner. Fyre doesn’t need anyone! Fyre storms off, is this all Isla Dawn’s doing?


Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen w/ Fallon Henley VS Gallus!

Just as they were about to get in on the Pretty Deadly Gauntlet, the Country Boys were knocked down by Mark Coffey & Wolfgang, who were suspended until recently. Gallus sniped their spot in the match and may have sniped their shot at the tag titles, but will Briggs & Jensen turn things back around?

The teams sort out, but then a brawl breaks out! The bell rings, Briggs CLUBS Mark out of the ring and Jensen keeps after Wolfgang. Mark ROCKS Briggs in return, Wolfgang throws body shots, then he powers Jensen to the Gallus corner. Wolfgang throws hands, Mark tags in, and Wolfgang feeds Jensen to a LARIAT! Wolfgang throws down hands, stands Jensen up and ROCKS him! Jensen throws body shots, whips, but things speed up. Briggs tags in and he helps Jensen run Mark over! Then they double scoop SLAM! Briggs covers, TWO! Briggs clamps onto Mark with a facelock, he tags Jensen back in, and they double whip.

Mark reverses to send Jensen into a knee from Wolfgang! Mark ROCKS Briggs, ELBOWS Jensen, and tag to Wolfgang! Wolfgang drops an elbow, then rains down fists on Jensen.

Briggs tags in and runs in to fire off on Wolfgang! Briggs whips Wolfgang to a corner, runs in and clotheslines! Briggs keeps moving but has to swipe at Mark as he stands by the ropes. Briggs turns around and he BOOTS Wolfgang down! Fans fire up, Briggs brings Wolfgang up in a headlock, but Wolfgang powers out. Mark tags in, Wolfgang bypasses Briggs and Mark trips him up! Mark drags Briggs out to APRON BACK SUPLEX! Then he throws down hands!

Wolfgang BLASTS Jensen, Mark puts Briggs in. Fallon checks Jensen butt Mark mugs Briggs at the apron. Then Gallus pulls up the floor mats! Fans are freaking out but Jensen and Briggs brawl with Gallus! Jensen RAMS Wolfgang into barriers, but Mark goes to suplex! Briggs fights that off, to suplex Mark to the floor! Fans fire up for Briggs as NXT goes picture in picture.

Briggs leaves Mark behind to get in the ring. Briggs and Jensen regroup, see Gallus regrouping outside, and Briggs coordinates with Jensen. They both run, baseball slide, and then fire off haymakers on Gallus! They push Mark into the ring, but Wolfgang grabs at Briggs. Briggs kicks Wolfgang away, rushes in, but Mark gets around to waistlock. Briggs runs to ropes, bucks Mark, but comes back into an ENZIGURI! Mark BOOTS Briggs down, pushes him to the corner, and stomps him. Tag to Wolfgang, and Gallus mugs Briggs. Cover, TWO! Wolfgang clamps onto Briggs with a chinlock but Briggs fights up.

Wolfgang throws EuroUppers, then bumps Briggs off buckles. Tag to Mark and Gallus mugs Briggs in the corner. The ref counts, they let off, and Mark cravats. Briggs resists the snapmare but Mark knees low and CLUBS Briggs down. Mark throws hands but Briggs gives them back! Mark gets the edge, facelocks, and he grinds Briggs down. Briggs fights up, but Mark whips him away to CLOBBER him! Cover, TWO! Mark keeps on Briggs with a facelock and grinds him down again. Briggs endures, fights up, and NXT returns to single picture. Fans rally, Briggs fights his way over, and he BACK DROPS Mark away!

Hot tag to Jensen! Jensen rallies on Mark, BOOTS Wolfgang, then WHEEL KICKS Mark! Fans fire up with Jensen while Mark sputters. Jensen drags Mark up, suplexes, but the bad back stops him!

Winners: Gallus, by pinfall

Mark & Wolfgang beat Pretty Deadly and they may have just broken Briggs & Jensen! Will Jensen be able to compete again after getting tossed like that? Will New Day be the next team on Gallus’ list?


Duke Hudson gets Thea Hail hyped up.

He says she’s going to get her first win in NXT! Is she ready? She’s ready! To throw up… That’s good, kinda. Okay, not the throwing up, but good that she’s nervous. That means she wants it! Andre Chase walks in and asks why he’s phone’s been blowin’ up. Thea says that means they’re getting the new Chase U swimming pool! Uh, no… Duke asks if this is about Thea’s match. Oh, Duke knows what this is about. Chase shows us the footage. Someone was spying on Duke talking with another Chase U student. Duke said Thea’s match is a must-win, because the win-loss record is not reflecting well on the school, on Duke or on anyone else.

Duke defends that he doesn’t know who was filming that. Chase doesn’t care who was filming it, he cares that Duke said that! If he has something to say, he should say it to their face! Duke says that conversation was taken completely out of context! But more importantly, tonight is about Thea! She’ll get her first win! Thea says yes, they should worry about that video later. She has her match now, so can we please go? Chase says okay, and they head out. Was the infamous “NXT_Anonymous” the one who was watching? And in the end, does Duke have a point? Is this match critical for not just Thea but ALL of Chase U?


The Country Boys are in NXT Medical.

The medic checks Jensen’s back, and it’s sore. Jensen says he’s fine, he just got the wind knocked out of him. Briggs wants Jensen to listen to the doc. But then Fallon storms in and asks Jensen why the hell she ran out there. Well, first of all, Kiana James has a name. And second, she was checking on him. Well she did more harm than good! He cannot be that blind. Jensen says Kiana was more concerned for him than Fallon was. Fallon says Kiana has him wrapped around her finger! She doesn’t like Jensen, she’s just USING Jensen!! HEY! What is she using him for? Fallon still has the bar, right? Jensen likes Kiana, Kiana likes Jensen, and Fallon just has to deal with that.

Fallon says she doesn’t have to “deal” with anything! And when Kiana breaks Jensen’s heart, Fallon won’t help him pick up the pieces. Fallon storms off, but is she right about Kiana? Or is Fallon’s own judgment blinded by something else?


Thea Hail w/ Chase U VS Valentina Feroz!

Chase U’s top recruit has yet to get a win in NXT, and as the video shows, Duke Hudson put on the pressure by saying it is a must-win scenario. However, Thea’s up against a superstar who is also in dire need of winning a match all on her own. Something’s gotta give, who will avoid the worst case scenario?

The bell rings and fans rally for Thea as she circles with Feroz. They are both rather anxious, and Feroz rushes in. Thea avoids the takedown, they tie up, and they go around. Feroz headlocks, hits a takeover, but Thea powers free. Thea says “U!” and Feroz shouts, “C’MON!” They tie up again, Thea headlocks then wrenches to a wristlock. Feroz rolls, spins, and wrangles Thea down! Thea keeps her shoulders up, kips up and wrenches to a wristlock. Feroz fights it but Thea keeps on it. Feroz spins, trips Thea, but Thea BOOTS Feroz away! But Feroz sweeps and covers, ONE! Thea sweeps and covers, ONE!

Thea arm-drags Feroz, but Feroz SAYANAGIS Thea and SHOTGUNS her down! Cover, TWO! Feroz is frustrated, she clamps onto Thea’s arms and wraps her up. Thea kicks around, reaches out, but here comes Elektra Lopez! Lopez nods to Feroz while Thea fights up. Feroz whips, Thea gets around and goes for a crucifix, but Feroz stays up! Feroz moves Thea around, but Thea turns that to a sunset flip! Only for Feroz to sit on it! TWO!! Thea escapes and SLIDING KICKS, to a STANDING MOONSAULT! Cover, TWO! Feroz survives, Thea covers again, TWO! Fans rally as Thea tries another cover, TWO!

Thea grows frustrated but both Duke and Chase coach her. But Feroz drags Thea down to a cover, TWO! Feroz knees low, BOOTS Thea down, then whips Thea to ropes. Thea ducks ‘n’ dodges, but DOUBLE CROSSBODIES collide! Fans fire up and Lopez approaches the apron. Lopez coaches Feroz, but Duke asks her why she’s here. Chase has Duke stand down to focus on Thea, but this also distracts the ref. Lopez slips Feroz the brass knuckles!! Feroz wonders what this is about, and then the ref sees those knuckles shining! Feroz takes them off and tells Lopez that she doesn’t need this! Feroz throws those away, goes up to Thea, but Thea wrenches!

Thea cravats, for a FACEBUSTER! Cover, THEA WINS!!

Winner: Thea Hail, by pinfall

Thea’s first win EVER, and it’s because Lopez tried to help Feroz! Lopez shakes her head, disappointed that Feroz didn’t do things her way. As for Chase U, winning supposedly fixes things, but has it gotten Chase to forget what Duke said?


Trick & Melo exit NXT Arena.

Melo says Apollo got his, but it’s cool. They’re even. Trick says that’s as even as they’re ever gonna be. But then Apollo walks over and says those visions didn’t turn out how they planned, huh? It sucks, right? You sit down, you put all your thoughts into words, put pen to paper, and it just doesn’t happen. That’s no fun. Okay, stop bragging about the tag match, acting like you beat Melo on your own. Get over it. Yeah, that’s cheap. Cheap? Aw c’mon, guys, you know a victory is never cheap when it comes to Trick & Melo. As a matter of fact, it calls for a celebration! That’s what Apollo will do! He’ll need a fresh cut. They know a good barber in town?

Melo & Trick can’t even as Apollo heads off. Mostly because Apollo ain’t got no hair. Will Apollo & Axiom return the favor that is the mockery?


BREAKING NEWS in regards to the wrestling community as a whole.

Sadly, one half of the ROH World Tag Team Champions, Jay Briscoe, has passed away. WWE and NXT want to give their condolences to Jay’s friends and family tonight.


Lopez finds Feroz in the locker room.

Lopez asks Feroz, “Why didn’t you take my help?” Feroz says she doesn’t cheat. Lopez sits with Feroz and says that “whether you play by the rules or you throw the rulebook away, you fight to win. You fight for respect.” Feroz says Lopez and Sanga clearly think the same. Well, yeah. So quit sulking over Sanga. Lopez has stood with men before, and she realized that to get what she wants, she had to stand on her own and do whatever it takes. She practices what she preaches, too, so watch her take on Wendy Choo next week. Lopez leaves and Feroz isn’t so sure about that, but will she soon see things La Madrina’s way?


The New Day is here!

Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods are dressed in nice suits as they head to the ring. They get the mics as the fans cheer them on, “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” Woods says, “Ladies and gentlemen! It’s ya bois, the NEW~ DAY~, and we look… GOOD!” Woods wants Kofi to explain why. Kofi asks if fans want to know why they look good, look dapper, and look sharp? It’s because today is a very special occasion. They are DONE with Pretty Deadly, BABYYY~! #YESBOY! But uh, if they’re not going up against Pretty Deadly at Vengeance Day, then who are they facing? Who who who? Kofi says they will go against the team that won the gauntlet match in this very ring!

Yes, that means The New Day is going against GALLUS~! They cross their arms to mock the Gallus pose, but then Pretty Deadly makes their way out here! Elton Prince says, “No no no no. Stop this absolute travesty!” Look at New Day, embarrassing themselves talking nonsense! Pretty Deadly hates nonsense! Kit Wilson says The New Day is making a mockery of them! Do they think this is funny? Fans chant ‘YES! YES!” Woods asks, “Do we think this is funny?” Fans say, “YES!” Well you heard the fans! Of course this is funny! It’s really funny considering Pretty Deadly LOST that gauntlet match! HAHAHAHA!

Woods says it’s funny especially because all they had to do before was get all the items on the wish list. If they’d just gotten Ahmed Johnson’s Legion of Doom shoulder pads, they wouldn’t be talking about this. Elton tells them to shut up! Shut your mouths! Kit adds on, and Pretty Deadly says they’ve been jumping through hoops for The New Day for a whole month, and it isn’t fair! Kofi realizes they missed an opportunity: they should’ve had Pretty Deadly literally jump through hoops! Kit says New Day isn’t getting it! Pretty Deadly is done with the games! This isn’t about Gallus, this is about Pretty Deadly, “the rightful #1 contenders to those NXT Tag Team titles.”

New Day knows it, Pretty Deadly knows it, and the fans know it! Fans boo, but then here comes Gallus! Mark & Wolfgang have mics, and Mark wants everyone to hold on. Did they hear that right? Did Pretty Deadly just claim to be the #1 contenders? No, Pretty Deadly, the New Day are gonna bang on, and Kit & Elton don’t deserve another chance at the titles after Gallus battered Pretty Deadly last week. Pretty Deadly says Gallus weren’t even supposed to be in the gauntlet! “In English, that is called a gross miscarriage of justice!” Gallus steps into the ring and Pretty Deadly backs off.

Mark says everyone’s chances of becoming NXT Tag Team Champions are done! Because Gallus is back! Nobody expected them, and after they put Pretty Deadly to bed, and now Briggs & Jensen, New Day is next. Fans boo, then chant “NEW! DAY ROCKS!” Mark says Kofi & Woods like talking about records they hold. But here’s what Gallus is about: turning up, kicking off, and ruining everyone’s good time. Woods says, “Considering the fact that none of us understood a word you two just said… We can tell from the body language that you wanna fight. So we’re ready when you are.” But then Pretty Deadly CLOBBERS all four of them!

Fans fire up as the brawl is on! Woods and Kofi go after Elton, Kit has Wolfgang but then Mark storms over. Woods feeds Elton to Kofi’s BELLY BELT SHOT! Mark hits Kit with a HALF NELSON SLAM! New Day TOSSES Elton, Mark clotheslines Kit out! And then New Day and Gallus stare down. Officials rush out to stop Pretty Deadly from getting back in, and the brawl is now between Gallus and New Day! Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” but more officials rush out to stop this! New Day wants to move on, Pretty Deadly want a rematch and Gallus just wants the gold, how will Vengeance Day’s NXT Tag Team title match shape out?


Backstage interview with Roxie and Lyra.

McKenzie says in tonight’s main event, they team up for the first time ever and take on Toxic Attraction. How do they feel they will “gel” in the match? Roxie knows she and Lyra have common enemies. Whether it’s Toxic Attraction this week or Cora Jade last week, they both know what it’s like to be the new girl. And everyone knows that since day one, Toxic Attraction has been trying to make Roxie’s life a living hell. She won’t let that happen to Lyra. Lyra says she normally flies solo, but tonight she makes an exception. Roxie was there for her, so tonight, Lyra is there in the main event for Roxie. Toxic Attraction thinks-

Wait, Javier Bernal walks in with a guitar? Javi says he was looking all over for McKenzie. She knows his match is next, right? Uh, he knows she’s in the middle of an interview, right? Oh, okay. But his match- Oh, wait, did McKenzie buy his Christmas album? He heard it hit the Top 40. Hey, champ, wanna hear a song? No, she really doesn’t. Okay. How about new girl? Feliz Javidad is flying up the charts. Get out! Sheesh, tough crowd. Big Body Javi moves on, but will he use that guitar to sing his own praises after tonight?


Sit down interview with Bron Breakker.

Just as Vic Joseph interviewed Grayson Waller, Vic now sits with the NXT Champion to talk about the rematch. What’s been going through Bron’s mind since New Year’s Evil? He just wants the bad taste out of his mouth. No one wanted that match to end that way, including him. Bron wanted a definitive winner. He wanted to stand over Waller after having speared him in half, knowing he proved he’s better than Waller, and it didn’t happen. He didn’t get that satisfaction. Vic knows that it was tough because he saw Bron’s face at the end of it. And he saw Bron’s face after the Knee Seen Around the World. Vic admits, he thought he’d have to say, “And new.”

Bron is sure everyone thought that. Credit where it is due, Bron was setting up for the spear, but Waller caught him off guard. It took Bron everything to kick out. Waller then goes to the ropes for his elbow but the ropes break. That is the big question, “What if?” If Waller hit the elbow, would we have seen a new champion? Who knows, Bron can’t answer that. But there’s doubt now in the people’s minds. They don’t think Bron should be champion. And that’s fine, because all the questions will be answered on Vengeance Day. Vic says that’s coming in two weeks, Bron VS Waller, inside a STEEL CAGE.

Bron says that sounds good. He couldn’t be more excited. The cage is like icing on the cake. He couldn’t think of a better scenario. There’s nowhere to run, nowhere to hide. The trash talk, the mind games, trying to get under Bron’s skin, it won’t work. It all runs through Vengeance Day. Bron won’t climb out, he’s going to win in the ring. Then not to ruffle any feathers, but Vic brings up Waller walking around with his own belt. Bron says Waller’s the best trash talker around. He talks trash but gets his ass kicked. He’d be a disgrace as the leader of the brand because he’s selfish. Waller’s here for himself, not for the brand.

Bron says that over his dead body will Waller be the champion. Waller won’t be talking trash being thrown up against the cage and left in the center of that ring. HBK and the fans want a definitive winner, Bron will give that to us. Waller will be down and Bron will leave Charlotte still NXT Champion. Will Bron make sure he breaks Waller once and for all?


Tyler Bate VS Javier Bernal!

The Big Strong Boy is back, but Big Body Javi is about to do his best Elias impersonation. “In celebration of Feliz Javidad hitting the top 40, how about I play you guys a little concert? Thank you, Orland!” Javi starts singing, but then Tyler’s music stops that! Fans fire up already, will Tyler prove that he’s back and better than ever?

The bell rings, Bate and Javi circle and the fans cheer on the Big Strong Boy. Bate offers a handshake, but then leaves Javi hanging. Bate then tickles Javi to the corner! The ref counts, Bate lets off, and he ties up with Javi. Bate waistlocks, baits Javi into going for his leg, and then leap frogs over to slide under. Bate baits Javi in again, rolls Javi up, TWO! Javi runs in but into a headlock. Jaiv pulls hair, the ref reprimands, but Javi headlocks. Bate endures, powers up, and powers out to leap, drop down and dropkick! Bate arm-drags Javi to a wristlock and grinds Javi down. Javi endures but Bate brings him up.

Bate clamps onto the arm, but Javi pulls hair to bring Bate into ropes! The ref backs Bate off, but Javi pokes Bate in the eye! Javi CLUBS Bate, whips him to a corner and runs to BULLDOG! Then SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Javi pushes Bate down to rain down fists! Javi grinds his forearm in, the fans boo, but Javi lets off. Javi drags Bate up and talks trash, then he throws down more hands. Fans rally for Bate and Bate counter punches! And again! And UPPERCUTS! Bate UPPERCUTS Javi again, whips him, but Javi reverses. Bate rebounds, but he slips out of the bulldog! Javi gets up but Bate rallies on him!

Bate kicks, headbutts, whips, and CLOBBERS Javi! Fans fire up as Javi flounders to ropes. Bate storms up to fire off more uppercuts. Bate whips, Javi reveres, and Javi runs in. Javi blocks Bate’s boot, but Bate brings Javi down to KNEE him away! Bate then goes up to FLYING UPPERCUT! Fans fire up more as Javi swings into an EXPLODER! Bate kips up and hits a STANDING SHOOTING STAR! Bate drags Javi up, reels him in and underhooks the arms, but Javi wrenches out to CODE- NO, Bate blocks that and throws Javi back. Bop up, BANG! Javi staggers, swings on Bate, but Bate dodges to Bop up, and BANG again!

Javi flounders around, Bate runs, COMEBACKER LARIAT! Underhooks, Javi fights off the lift, but Bate gets him back up, TYLER DRIVER 98!! Cover, Bate wins!

Winner: Tyler Bate, by pinfall

Javi may have topped the charts, but he just dropped off with this one. Tyler Bate is back and here to stay, will he get back to the top of the mountain in NXT?


Chase U celebrates Thea’s win!

Duke carries Thea on his shoulders while the other students march through waiving banners and chanting her name! Chase still looks a bit upset about earlier, but Briggs & Jensen are also a bit bummed. At least someone won tonight, right? Go Chase U. Briggs says he’s going to get going as Fallon walks in, but Fallon tells him to stay. What’s she want? Fallon apologizes to Jensen for what she said earlier, but she just wants what’s best for him. He knows she does. And Fallon knows Kiana means a lot to him, so she’ll try to make this work. She means that? Yes, and she even asked for a tag team match. Her partner is… Kiana James!

That’s great! Jensen thanks her, but Fallon says she’s only doing this for Jensen. Okay? Of course! Bar tonight, drinks on Briggs. Fallon knows a place. Briggs is fine with that, since they’re gonna have drinks. But will Fallon really be able to work well with Kiana?


BREAKING NEWS for Vengeance Day!

After the big brawl between the three teams, the NXT Tag Team Championship match is now a TRIPLE THREAT! The New Day will defend against Gallus AND Pretty Deadly! Will Kofi & Woods still be your W, W, E, N, X, T, Tag, Team, Champions~?! Will Gallus Boys truly be on top? Or will Kit & Elton be vindicated when they win those titles back?


Roxanne Perez & Lyra Valkyria VS Toxic Attraction!

Just as the Prodigy said, she and the Morrigan are taking on some common enemies in Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne. Will the NXT Women’s Champion be able to overcome her challengers while the numbers are even? Or will this end up a preview of how Toxic Attraction will take the title back on Vengeance Day?

The teams sort out and Roxie starts against Jacy. They rush in, Roxie gets around and fires off forearms! Fans fire up and Gigi runs in, but Lyra intercepts her with a knee!

Only for Lyra to WRECK Gigi with a dropkick! Fans fire up as Lyra sits on the ropes and Roxie drags Jacy up. Roxie puts Jacy in, covers, ONE!

Lyra knees low, throws more knees, then UPPERCUTS Jacy down! Lyra brings Jacy up, headlocks, but Jacy powers out. Roxie tags in, Lyra slips under to hold Jacy still, and Roxie wheelbarrows to victory roll, run and basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Roxie grins as she has the arm again.

SOBAT for Gigi, and then POP ROX!! Cover, Roxie & Lyra win!

Winners: Roxanne Perez & Lyra Valkyria, by pinfall

The common enemies tried to take them down, but the numbers didn’t work in their favor! Roxie found a way to win against Gigi & Jacy here tonight, will she be able to do the same thing on Vengeance Day?

My Thoughts:

A really good NXT, especially in terms of building the Vengeance Day card. Really good interview promos from Waller and Bron, and I like the detail that they both want to end this in the ring. Honestly, HBK should just make the stipulation that escape doesn’t count as a win, so that there isn’t even the possibility of Waller changing his mind and going for the door or something. Good promo from Tony & Stacks to both reference Two Dimes but also strengthen the bond of the team. If Stacks is now the Underboss, I hope that means they’re thinking of expanding and adding new members. Dijak also had a decent promo in calling out Wes Lee, but I still think Wes wins their match.

Good promo from Tiffany and Indi with Indi putting Tiffany in her place and setting up a match between them. Tiffany will surely win that since it’s her return match, and honestly, Indi should’ve been called up a little bit ago. Maybe Indi will be a Royal Rumble entrant, maybe she’ll show up closer to WrestleMania, who knows. With Gargano hurt and no real plans for Lumis right now, The Way can’t really reunite on Raw just yet so Indi can hang around NXT to help the newer superstars. Really good stuff from Diamond Mine, especially Ivy getting the Creeds to focus. I hope we still get Creeds VS Indus Sher, because that can at least serve towards sending one team towards the titles.

Stevie Turner the Twitch streamer is only into week two and it’s already failing to land right. She wasn’t reacting, she was recapping. She should’ve been laughing, making jokes, going “OMG!” like she had no idea what happened last week. Clearly HBK is trying to show he knows the kids today and the technology we use, but he didn’t give Stevie the right direction in this promo. But what he can do is get Stevie in action sooner rather than later and let her show the US audience what she can do. And we got a good promo out of Toxic Attraction to just barely touch on the dysfunction forming. It also set up the main event well with Lyra and Roxie showing up and brawling.

The main event was a great match, too, with no real dysfunction until the end. Cora interfering should’ve been obvious, and I thought it was going to cost Lyra & Roxie, but Lyra runs Cora off to further their building feud. Lyra is surely winning her match with Cora to better establish herself on NXT. And Roxie using Gigi & Jacy against each other was great, that is of course the plan she’ll use for the Triple Threat. It worked here, who knows if it works at Vengeance Day, but I would think it does. As great as Gigi & Jacy are both individually and together, Roxie just got the belt so she’s gotta make it to Stand & Deliver with the title.

Really good opening match with Axiom, Apollo and Trick Melo Gang. Things were a bit sloppy at the start, but Apollo and Axiom get a good win. Apollo kinda rubbing it in as Trick & Melo were leaving was a good touch. I think we’ll get a rematch of Apollo VS Melo for Vengeance Day, that can be the blow-off that then sends Melo towards the NXT Championship for Stand & Deliver, where I hope Melo will win that title. Really good match out of Fyre VS Sol, and what a great surprise that Fyre lost. Sol’s finisher isn’t the most practical, but it is unique a least. Fyre going after the ref was a nice touch, and I bet Isla Dawn ends up Fyre’s tag team partner, even if she claims she doesn’t need one. As great as KC Squared are, Fyre & Dawn taking the titles would be pretty cool.

Good match for Bate’s return, but Javi might’ve been legitimately dazed from something. He should’ve been able to jump for that Tyler Driver but he ends up getting folded up more than he should have. Tyler can definitely build his own momentum towards a title while giving us great matches along the way. And it seems NXT Anonymous strikes again, this time exposing Duke Hudson. I agree with Duke, Chase U needs to start getting wins, and we got great story blending where Thea gets a win over Feroz to finally get that goose egg off her record. And it helps Feroz and Lopez move their story along. I think they’ll feud first, then become a team.

And speaking of, Fallon and Kiana will surely be a dysfunctional tag team that somehow wins. They’ll be tense the entire time, Jensen will end up in the middle, as will Briggs. With teams like Feroz & Lopez, Fallon & Kiana and Fyre & Dawn forming, it feels like HBK is making sure NXT is strong in all divisions. This will help so that there will be strong call-ups for all the divisions on RawDown. KC Squared should definitely show up on SmackDown post-WrestleMania so they can be contenders on that brand for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships.

Great tag match out of Gallus VS Briggs & Jensen, great win for Gallus, and then great promo from Gallus, New Day and Pretty Deadly to give us a brawl and the Triple Threat tag title match. That situation gives New Day a way to lose without being hurt, and I would love to see Gallus win that so they can join Pretty Deadly in the NXT & NXT UK Tag Champs Club. But where’s Joe Coffey? Maybe Joe is waiting to pounce on the North American title scene.

My Score: 8.4/10

A huge win for the unlikeliest of trios, and Cassidy adorns Sting with the sunglasses! As for Darby, he is looking at the Double or Nothing banner. The Relentless One wants at MJF and the gold, will he be living it up in Las Vegas?


AEW shares backstage footage from last week.

After having his “Re-Bar-Mitzvah” interrupted by Darby Allin, Sammy Guevara and “Jungle Boy” Jack Perry, it was obvious Maxwell Jacob Friedman was mad. He curses up a storm, then says he is the world champion! But Darby Allin says the world title means much more than money and fame. It is him being him. And Jack Perry, for himself, his family, and everyone who supported him all this time, he is going to become champion on his own. Sammy says that the world title is his destiny! He said so since episode ONE of Dynamite that he is going to be world champion. But MJF says that’s not how it works! You don’t waltz up to the champ and call your shot, you EARN it!

MJF has beaten Darby, Sammy and JB once each in 1v1 competition in their AEW careers, and he tells them they have to become #1 contender. Good luck trying, because all three of them SUCK! Sammy says he’ll win as many matches as it takes to get that belt off MJF. JB says that you can check the record books. He’s already won more matches than any of them. Darby says he’s beaten Sammy and he’s beaten JB, so he will stop at nothing to make sure that MJF is no longer champion. Who of these three Young Pillars of AEW will be THE one that challenges MJF at Double or Nothing?


AEW takes a closer look at tonight’s main event dream match.

Excalibur narrates that, “In 2021, there was no one hotter in professional wrestling than Kenny Omega. Known as ‘The Belt Collector,’ Omega won championships around the world, including in Mexico, where he won the AAA Mega Championship. At the same time, El Hijo del Vikingo was quickly establishing himself as one of the premier luchadors in all of Mexico. A match was made for December 2021: Vikingo, Omega, for the first time ever for the AAA Mega Championship. Unfortunately, Omega’s injuries at Full Gear were so severe, they required surgery, keeping him out of action for nearly a year.

“Now, with Omega back at 100%, the dream match is on for tonight. Kenny Omega, El Hijo del Vikingo, live!” Who will come out as truly the best today?


AEW World Tag Team Championships: The Gunns VS Top Flight!

They may not be the Young Bucks, the Lucha Brothers or the Hardy Boyz, but Austin & Colten are the brother tag team reigning over AEW. But will they soon find out they are not nearly as good as they think they are? Or will the Gunns cause the Coldest Tag Team in the Game to melt down?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see who is really the better brother duo!

The teams sort out, Austin starts against Dante, and Independence taunts the “ASS~ BOYS!” Austin tunes that out, knuckle locks with Dante, and then he CHOPS! Austin goes up and up, but then says no no no. Austin hops down, swings on Dante, but misses! Dante knuckle locks and CHOPS, then he goes up and up and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Dante kips up and fans fire up! Austin tags Colten, but Dante arm-drags Colten down! Tag to Darius, the Martins double whip and speed things up, to then DROPKICK Colten down! Austin runs in, but into a DROPKICK! The Gunns regroup, but the Martins double clothesline them up and out!

Fans fire up as Dante says they’re getting those belts. The “ASS~ BOYS!” regroup and Colten slides back in. Tag to Austin, he and Dante circle again, and Austin gets around to shove Dante to ropes. Dante BLASTS Colten before the cheap shot! Dante then goes up and over Austin, only for Austin to pull hair! The ref reprimands, but misses Colten HOTSHOT Dante down! Fans boo as Austin stomps and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Austin whips Dante out of the ring, then taunts Darius to distract the ref. Colten stomps away on Dante! Colten puts Dante in before anyone notices, and Austin bumps Dante off buckles. Tag to Colten, he stomps Dante, but lets off as the ref reprimands. Colten stomps some more, he and Austin taunt Independence and Darius, then Colten drags Dante up. Colten DECKS Dante, then mocks the fans. Colten ROCKS Dante, ROCKS him again, then suplexes. Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martin brothers, drags Dante over and bumps him off buckles. Tag to Austin, he stomps Dante now, then digs his boots in.

The ref reprimands but Austin mocks the fans rallying for Dante. Austin lets off and Colten CHOKES Dante! Colten lets off Dante before he gets caught, and Austin tags Colten in. Colten drags Dante up, whips him to ropes, and the Gunns body shot, knee lift and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Colten stays between the Martins again, drags Dante up and whips him to the corner. Colten runs in but Dante dodges the splash! Austin tags in and hurries to stop Dante. Austin shoves Dante down, but Dante fakes Austin out to go under! Austin still grabs a leg, tags Colten back in, and the Gunns double back suplex! But Dante lands on his feet!

Dynamite returns to single picture, Dante goes over Austin, over Colten, and tags in Darius! Darius rallies on the Gunns and fans fire up! Darius hits an atomic drop on Austin, then LARIATS Colten! Mule kick for Austin, and Darius whips him at Colten. Austin reverses but Darius uses that to UPPERCUT Colten! Austin runs back in, but is sent into Colten! Darius uses Austin to get up and ENZIGURI Colten! Darius then GERMAN SUPLEXES Austin, and STANDING SPANISH FLIES Colten! Cover, TWO! Fans rally as Darius drags Colten up. Tag to Dante, Top Flight double whip, but Colten ducks and tags Austin!

Darius leaps to CROSSBODY Colten! Austin runs in, but into a hall nelson SLAM! cover, TWO!! Dante keeps cool, he goes to the corner, but Colten grabs his leg! Dante kicks Colten away, Darius DIVES onto Colten to hit him into railing! Dante GAMANGIRIS Austin, goes up and up and NOSEDIVES!! Cover, Colten breaks it!! Fans boo but Colten was within the rules. Wait, is that THE KINGDOM!? Mike Bennett & Matt Taven are mugging Darius over their ROH losses! But Dante FLIES out onto them! Direct hit and fans fire up! Dante hurries back up, springboards again, but Austin gets under!

Colten gets in, Dante runs into a 3:10 TO YUMA!! Cover, the Gunns win!

Winners: The Gunns, by pinfall (still AEW World Tag Team Champions)

Fans boo that the Gunns win, but Darius is pissed at The Kingdom! Darius chases off Mike & Matt, will Top Flight get revenge in ROH? As for the Gunns, they hear FTR coming! Fans fire up again as Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler step out on stage with mics in their hands! Colten gets a mic to have the FTR music stop. Colten says no one wants to hear that song and no one wants to see FTR. Fans boo because they disagree. FTR says they’re not here to fight. They’re here to talk business. Well, no one wants to hear you talk! The Gunns don’t like or respect FTR. And guess what? FTR are LOSERS! They lost three sets of belts, and lost to the Gunns!

There is nothing FTR can say or offer them to get a rematch. NOTHING! Nothing? So like, if they said they’ll never challenge the Gunns again for those titles should they lose- NO! Do you not hear what Austin is saying, “you hillbillies? NOTHING! There’s NOTHING! What do you have to offer?! NOTHING!!” Then if the Gunns wanna prove their first win wasn’t a fluke, should they win against FTR again, FTR will never tag together in AEW again. Oh, the break up? So heartbreaking! LOOK AT HIS FACE! NOTHING!! Okay, okay. Dax says if FTR can’t beat the Gunns to win the AEW World Tag Team Championships, FTR will just quit AEW.

Fans boo, but it seems that got through to the Gunns. If the Gunns beat FTR again, FTR leaves AEW forever? Yes, that’s what Dax said. Well, in that case, deal! The Gunns and FTR shake on it, but then Gunns literally spin in FTR’s faces! The Gunns run for it, but the match is coming either way. Will the “ASS~ BOYS!” get their asses kicked? Or will they be the team that banishes FTR from AEW?


Backstage interview with Jade Cargill, Leila Grey & Mark Sterling.

Renee Paquette is with the AEW TBS Champion, her Last Baddie Standing and her legal representation. Renee says that Taya Valkyrie is All Elite now, and she has her eye on the TBS title. What is Jade’s reaction to that? “Renee, cut the sh*t. We had this Taya girl come in and interrupt my moment to answer an open challenge that was already closed, baby girl. And then, had the audacity to use my finisher. Mark, tie this up.” Sterling has a document, it is a Cease & Desist order. This will be sent to Taya Valkyrie, telling Taya that she is no longer allowed to use the chicken wing facebuster, which is also Jade’s move, as her finisher.

Leila says that she should deliver this document to Taya personally, this Saturday on Rampage. Because she has a few words of her own for Taya. So that’s an official challenge? Yes. Welcome to #ThatBitchShow. Will La Wera Loca have a jaded response to this frivolous lawsuit?


No Disqualifications: Hook VS Stokely Hathaway!

An injured arm turned into a suspension turned into a settlement turned into a high stakes bet that The Firm lost, and now it has resulted in this match. And though Ethan Page, Matt Hardy, Isiah Kassidy, Lee Moriarty & “Big Bill” Morrissey see Stokely off, they can’t stay per the stipulations of the bet. As the introduction says, “He’s not as large as the men he represents, he has the heart of a lion and the wisdom of an owl.” But will any of that help him defeat The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil?

As Hook makes his entrance, Stokely grabs the mic to say, “Whoa, whoa, whoa! I’ve got some breaking news! I spoke to Dr. Simpson (he means Sampson) earlier, and he said I am not medically cleared to compete. I know, I know. I wanted to so bad. And I would also, what a coinky-dink, announce that I am retiring.” What? Stokely thanks all 12 of his fands, God bless! Justin, here, doctor’s note. Make it official. Justin takes the note, and it reads, “He is SICK.” Justin says that with all due respect, that’s a receipt for Wingstop. The ref RIPS the receipt! And the bell rings! Fans fire up and Hook is ready, so Stokely bails!

Stokely runs around the ring, out to the crowd, but Hook pursues! Fans fire up as Hook chases Stokely down, drags him back, CLUBS him, then brings him over to KNEE and TOSS! Stokely ends up at ringside again and fans are thunderous! Hook stalks Stokely, Stokely runs in to UPPERCUT, but Stokely bounces off of Hook! Stokely scurries away, gets back up, and runs in, but into a leg capture! EL CAMINO to the floor! Fans fire up as Hook drags Stokely up, puts him in the ring, and then looks under the ring. Fans fire up more, because here comes a SPARE GUARD RAIL! Hook puts that in the ring while the Firm can only watch.

Hardy tries to calm the group down, Stokely can take care of himself with things getting “hardcore.” Ethan says no he can’t, they didn’t practice any of the hardcore stuff! Stokely bails out again but Hook puts the railing in a corner. Hook drags Stokely up but Stokely BLASTS Hook with the fire extinguisher! Fans boo but Stokely gets a chair! Stokely smacks the steps a couple times, he says, “I’m not a killer, but don’t push me! That’s Tupac.” Stokely hurries in, fans rally up, and Stokely swings, but Hook blocks! Hook BOOTS Stokely, then SMACKS him on the back! And again! And again! And again!

Hook throws the chair aside, Stokely is barely moving! But Hook drags Stokely up to EL CAMINO onto the railing! The railing BENDS! Hook drags Stokely off the railing, covers, but then pulls him up at TWO! Hook wants REDRUM!!! Stokely is OUT, Hook wins!

Winner: Hook, by submission

The FTW Champion could’ve ended it sooner, but he chose to teach Stokely a lesson: Do not get on Hook’s bad side. Hardy says Ethan must avenge Stokely! Ethan can beat Hook! Hardy is gonna get a match made right now! All Ego is ready, but will he be ready when they #SendHook?


Adam Cole is here!

Fans fire up as the Undisputed One heads to the ring. Naturally, everyone joins in on the “BOOM!” and “ADAM COLE BAYBAY!” Cole gets the mic and says, “Wow. Hey, hey, I think I know the answer to this, but who’s ready for Storytime with Adam Cole, baybay?” Everyone cheers! Cole continues with, “Seven days. We are just seven days away from me making my in-ring return here in AEW. And listen, I know I’ve talked a ton about my struggles and what I went through, but as far as how I’m feeling right now? Guys, I feel freaking great. I have never been more ready, never been more prepared, to get back in this ring, doing what I love, and that is wrestle for AEW.”

Fans are fired up, and Cole knows everyone has questions. “The biggest one being: Who is my opponent going to be on March 29th?” Fans echo, “Who? Who? Who?” Cole starts to speak, but here comes Daniel Garcia! Fans boo as Red Death has the mic to say, “Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey. Who’s ready for Storytime with Daniel Garcia, baybay?” Garcia knows Cole’s been gone awhile, so here’s an update on a few things. Fans tell Garcia to STFU already but Garcia says since Cole’s been gone, Garcia’s become a real veteran in AEW. All the boys in the back respect him so much that he is a locker room leader!

Fans boo more but Garcia says as locker room leader, it is his duty to come out here to not only welcome Cole back, but to put him in his place, too. Garcia says Cole may not remember, but here’s an update on what Garcia’s been doing the last nine months while Cole was home, “playing stupid video games on Twitch.” Cole smirks but allows it. Brody King: beat him! Ricky Starks: beat him! Bryan Danielson: Garcia beat him, too. Garcia’s main-evented more AEW programming over the past year than anyone else on the roster! Garcia is the lifeblood that pumps through this company. And he’s to respect Cole? To welcome Cole back? Where’s Garcia’s warm welcome?

Where is Garcia’s respect when he’s been here, been doing this, and proved himself as one of the best pro-wrest- Oops. Freudian slip there? Garcia corrects himself, “Sports entertainers on the planet today!” That’s what Garcia is! So what makes Cole so special? “What makes me special? When they ring the freakin’ bell, that’s what makes me special! That’s what makes m e special.” Cole admits he likes Garcia. Garcia is really, really good. And some day, he could be leading the charge in AEW. The problem is the company he keeps.

“The Jericho Appreciation Society, they’ve done a great job of giving you this false sense of security. This overconfidence, which sometimes is good, and sometimes is bad. But let me remind you, even me not wrestling for nine months, I am still Adam Cole Baybay. I am a multi-time world champion. I have traveled the globe, fought and beat some of the very best! As a matter of fact, while I was sitting at home for nine months, I was wondering if I’d ever get the chance to wrestle again, hoping, praying, willing to do anything for a second chance. And looks like I found that second chance.”

Fans fire up and Cole says if Garcia is crazy enough to want the match, then dammit, he’s on! Adam Cole VS Daniel Garcia, first-time-ever, next week on Dynamite! But Cole will remind Garcia of something: “This is not just my return match; this is a statement. It’s a statement to the entire locker room that one of the best damn pro-wrestlers on the planet is BACK, baybay.” Fans are fired up for “ADAM COLE! ADAM COLE!” Cole hopes Garcia realizes what he’ sin for. Because Cole promises next week will be a great night. A great night for Cole, for the fans, but for Garcia… Not so much. “See you next week, Garcia. BOOM.”

Cole is ready, Garcia is ready, but will the Dragonslayer stay a great sports enner-tay-ners? Or will the pro-wrestler in him rise to the surface against one of the greatest pro-wrestlers alive today?


Alex Marvez is outside The Elite’s locker room.

Marvez can hear a conversation going on inside, and he steps inside. Callis and Omega are talking, and Callis wants Marvez to hold on. What is Omega’s concern here? Omega’s concern is that his best friends left in an ambulance! He should’ve gone with them! Callis says he sent Cutler and Nakazawa with them. Omega has a match tonight! Hear Callis out. He’s a glass half full kind of guy. Injuries happen, but hear him out. The Bucks going to the hospital might’ve been the best thing for Omega and Callis. It allows for focus! Omega is in a singles match, the God of Pro-Wrestling is back! “Those kids will be fine in a few months.”

Callis now has Marvez join in. “Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo is gonna blow the roof off! The God of Pro-Wrestling is BACK, and it starts tonight on Dynamite! Now get out.” Marvez throws this back to ringside, but is Callis only thinking of his benefit, not Kenny’s?


Jon Moxley w/ The Blackpool Combat Club VS Stu Grayson w/ The Dark Order!

The Maniac, along with Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta, have torn into the Dark Order from Silver to Reynolds to Evil Uno. They did all that to anger Hangman Page, but they’ve also angered #PlayerTwo! Moxley may be #ForgedByCombat, but will he survive someone born and bred for combat?

The bell rings and Stu RAMS Moxley into a corner! Fans fire up as Stu fires off on Moxley but lets off as the ref counts. Moxley turns things around to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Moxley pie faces Stu, but Stu turns things around to CHOP back! Stu stalks Moxley to another corner, KNEES him and CLUBS him, then stalks him to a third corner. Moxley kicks low, ROCKS Stu with a forearm, then another, then digs his boots in. The ref counts, Moxley steps off at 4, then Moxley drags Stu up to headlock takeover. Stu keeps his shoulders up, the Dark Order coaches him up but Moxley gets a knuckle lock cover. TWO as Stu gets his left arm up.

Moxley pushes the hand down, covers, TWO as Stu gets the right arm up. Moxley pushes that arm down again, covers, ONE as Stu gets his left arm back up. Stu fights to his feet but Moxley kicks low.

Stu throws a forearm, then another, and another, and another! But Moxley ROCKS Stu with just one! Stu falls over and Claudio yawns. It seems this isn’t competitive enough for the Swiss Superman. Moxley has the legs, he stomps Stu in the stomach, then ties the legs up. But Stu fights back with fists! Moxley still powers Stu into the TEXAS CLOVERLEAF!

Cover, TWO!! Stu is still in this, but Moxley has the knuckle locks back. Dynamite returns to single picture as Moxley rains down the DRAGON STOMPS! Cover, TWO!! Stu hangs tough again, but Moxley just taunts him.

Fans rally, Stu rises, and Moxley KICKS him in the chest! And KICKS him again! Moxley eggs Stu on, then KICKS him more! Moxley SLAPS Stu! Stu snarls and stands up to fire off forearms! Stu whips, Moxley reverses but Stu CLOBBERS him! Stu dodges, tilt-o-whirls and REVERSE DDTS! Then he rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Fans fire up as Stu gives Moxley a taste of his own medicine! And then the SIDE EFFECT! SPRINGBOARD MARIPOSA! Cover, TWO!! Moxley survives and Stu grows frustrated. Stu hurries up a corner, but Yuta distracts! Fans boo but the Dark Order storm up on the BCC!

But Stu fights up to his feet! Fans fire up but Stu is fading again!

But Stu is still on his feet, and he revives! BACKPACK CANNONBALL!! Both men crash into buckles and Stu is free! Fans are thunderous again and Moxley sputters back to his feet. Moxley brings Stu up, but Stu slips out of the underhooks! PELE!! Moxley falls down and the BCC coach him up. Stu goes back to a corner, climbs back up top, but Moxley ROCKS him first!

Winner: Jon Moxley, by pinfall

The Dark Order hurry into the ring and Moxley backs off, there won’t be any extracurriculars here. But will the Dark Order ever get payback on the mean SOBs in the BCC?


Backstage interview with Ricky Starks.

Renee says she can feel the frustration coming off The Absolute. The back ‘n’ forth with him and Juice Robinson, where do they stand? You tell him! Starks is “sick and tired of talking back and forth. No action, all talk.” Starks doesn’t wanna stand around, take time off his vacation, just to say Juice, he doesn’t like that you attacked him from behind. That’s cool and all, but whatever! How about this, though? Saturday Night Rampage, Starks is done talking. If Juice wants to face him man to man, then he can find Starks on Rampage! If not, just stop! Starks is over it, he is so sick of it! This is the craziest thing he’s been a part of his whole life!

Starks is issuing the open challenge to Juice. If Juice accepts it or not, is a man or not, Starks doesn’t give a damn anymore. The Absolute will be waiting, but will the Booster oblige?

Toni Storm w/ The Outcasts VS Skye Blue!

The Lightning From Down Under has been striking down “spoiled rookies” again and again, but in the Dark. Will she do so again in the spotlight of Dynamite? Or will Skye roll the Storm away?

The bell rings and Storm BLASTS Skye with a forearm! Then she stomps a mudhole into Skye in the corner! The ref counts, Storm lets off but she grins and soaks up the heat.

Kenny Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo!

The AAA Mega Championship match that was meant to happen in December of 2021 was denied because of injury and misfortune. But now we are all fortunate enough to have this match happen here! “HE was the longest reigning Mega Champion at 765 days, 292 days more than El Hijo del Vikingo. HE never lost that title. HE is undefeated in singles matches in Mexico and also on Dynamite. Many people say HE is also undefeated at life. HE is often complimented on his accomplishments, matches, chiseled physique and hair, yet he is personally proud of his win-loss record in Independence, Missouri, which is better than his record of 1-1 in… NOOOORTH CAROLINA~!

“He arrives tonight after his 833 mile journey from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Weighing 224 pounds, HE is…! KENNY! OOOOOOOOOOOOMEEEEGAAAAAA~!” The fans go wild for the Cleaner, the Best Bout Machine, and Don Callis’ God of Pro-Wrestling, but will Omega prove he is better than the Mega Champion?

But as Omega makes his way down the ramp, El Hijo del Vikingo DIVES onto him! Fans fire up, EHDV throws off his cape, then he runs again, to FLY! Direct hit again and Independence is thunderous!

A bit double-edged, but fans lose their minds! Callis protests, the ring count climbs, but EHDV puts Omega in the ring. EHDV aims, slingshots and then springboards to 450 SPLASH! Cover, TWO!!

Omega goes to a corner, EHDV runs in to GAMANGIRI again! Omega staggers away, EHDV pursues but Omega CHOPS! And CHOPS again! EHDV falls over but Omega stalks him to a corner.

Omega drags EHDV back up fast, to fisherman BUSTER! Cover, TWO! EHDV hangs tough and Omega is frustrated but the fans are loving this. Omega stalks EHDV to the ropes, scrapes him to the apron, and then Omega goes out to follow EHDV.

Omega CLUBS EHDV, and whips him hard into barriers! EHDV falls in a heap, but Omega goes looking under the ring. Omega brings out a TABLE! Fans fire up for that, and Omega stands that table up near the ring. The ref reprimands, this isn’t a Tables match or anything like that. But fans chant, “WE WANT TABLES!” as Dynamite goes picture in picture.

Omega drags EHDV up, puts him in the ring, and Omega storms up to scoop and BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Omega clamps on with an armlock and chinbar, but he also fishhooks EHDV’s face! The ref reprimands, Omega lets off, but then pulls on EHDV’s hair! The ref counts but Omega lets off at 4. Omega looms over EHDV, stomps him, stomps him more, then springboard stomps!

Omega drags EHDV up again to CLUB him back down!

Omega drags EHDV up at the ropes, ROCKS him with a right hand, then ROCKS him again! And again! And again! The ref reprimands and counts, Omega lets off, but then Omega CHOKES EHDV with his foot! Dynamite returns, the fans boo and the ref counts, but Omega lets off at 4 again. Omega ROCKS EHDV again, JABS him, then whips him to ropes. EHDV ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! Omega goes to the apron, fans fire up as EHDV pursues! EHDV ROCKS Omega, but Omega tomahawk chops back! EHDV CHOPS, but Omega CHOPS! EHDV CHOPS back, so Omega BOOTS him! Omega runs in, goes up, and he MONKEY FLIPS EHDV on the apron!

EHDV falls to the floor while fans lose minds over how tight that one was. Omega drags EHDV up to the apron, and he grins as he looks at the table he set up. Omega drags EHDV up, the ref reprimands but Omega full nelsons! EHDV slips free to GAMANGIRI again! EHDV goes up top, balances on the post, and FLYING DRAGONRANAS!! Fans are thunderous as Omega hits the floor! Omega flounders into the ring, EHDV shoves him further in. Fans say “This is Awesome!” as both men go to corners. EHDV runs corner to corner to clothesline! EHDV hoists Omega up top, and GAMANGIRIS yet again!

EHDV climbs up after Omega, fans fire up again as they start to brawl! Omega HEADBUTTS, reels EHDV in, and SUPER POWER- STEINER!!! EHDV reverses just in time, Omega clutches his head! EHDV goes to the ropes, stands from the middle and PHOENIX SPLASHES in!!! Cover, TWO?!?! Omega survives by nanoseconds!! Independence is electric as both men rise up! They hope these two “FIGHT FOREVER!” but it has to end somehow! EHDV throws a forearm, a SOBAT, and then he runs to springboard, into a POWERBOMB!! And then another POWERBOMB! Roll through and V-TRIGGER!! Cover, TWO!!!

Omega is furious as EHDV survives! Omega slashes his throat, drags EHDV up, and he full nelsons for a SNAP DRAGON SUPLEX! Omega snarls, he puts EHDV on the ropes and takes aim. BANG and V-TRIGGER!! But that’s not the end of it! Omega drags EHDV up, deadweight as he is, and Electric Chair Lifts! But EHDV throws down fists! EHDV hops down, UPPERCUTS, then goes up and up to FLYING POISON-RANA!!! Omega tumbles to the apron, and EHDV crawls over to push him onto the table! EHDV builds speed while fans fire up, and he goes up to ESCALARA 630 SENTON through the table!!!!

Independence is volcanic for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” while Callis is freaking out! Both men are down in the wreckage as the ring count starts. EHDV crawls away at 3 of 10, Omega finally stirs at 4. Both men drag themselves up at 6, stand at “OCHO!” And both men slide in at 9! EHDV covers, TWO!!! Omega is still in this and EHDV is beside himself! Fans rally up, both men rise again, and EHDV throws a haymaker! Omega gives it back, they go back and forth, faster and faster! They go forearm for forearm, stand up, and keep throwing shots! EHDV gets the edge, SOBATS, runs, into a V-TRIGGER!!

Omega whips, EHDV rolls up and SUNSET FLIP BOMBS! TWO?!?!? Omega narrowly escapes again and even HE is shocked! But EHDV hurries to a corner and climbs up top! Omega flounders in the drop zone, EHDV 630 SENTONS but FLOPS as Omega moves!! EHDV flounders up, into a V-TRIGGER!!! Omega drags EHDV up, Electric Chair Lifts, ONE WINGED ANGEL!!!! Cover, OMEGA WINS!

Winner: Kenny Omega, by pinfall

This was a dream match the moment it was made, but this became an all-time classic by the end! Tony Schiavone joins Callis and Omega in the ring to say this was an incredible match. Omega is back in singles competition, and that was one for the ages! Omega thanks Schiavone for that. The more time goes by, the more he wonders if he can still do this kind of stuff for the fans. Wait, wait! THE BCC JUMPS OMEGA!! Moxley, Claudio & Yuta all mug Omega, and fans boo while Callis can only shout at the ref to stop this! The BCC stand Omega up so they can throw body shots and haymakers!

Fans continue to boo, but wait! Sirens? An ambulance has returned? For who? Wait, HANGMAN is driving it!! The Cowboy has a 2×4, with nails in it! Fans are going nuts for “COWBOY SH*T!” while the BCC stomp away on Omega. But here comes Hangman, wood in hand! The BCC decide to bail! Callis checks on Omega but the damage has been done. Hangman wants Moxley to get his ass back in here, but he stays back. Callis tries to calm Hangman down, but he almost gets 2×4 to the face! Callis keeps pulling at Hangman’s arm to hold him back, but Hangman shakes free and Callis falls right down! Omega comes to, and misunderstands why Callis is down!

Callis blames Hangman but Hangman says he didn’t do anything to Don! Omega and Hangman argue, Callis cowers behind Omega, and Omega takes Callis’ side. Fans boo, but is this just Callis keeping Omega all to himself?

My Thoughts:

A great episode of Dynamite, but it already feels like they’re gonna keep things going until Double or Nothing, no big thing for April. We got a great promo out of the Four Young Pillars, and MJF is making the other three run the #1 contender race like he did Bryan Danielson from now until, I dunno, probably May 3rd so that May can focus on building MJF VS his challenger. Hard to say who it’ll be, but Darby’s off to a good start with that great Six Man Tag. Darby, Sting and Cassidy made an eclectic but great combination, especially with Sting borrowing some Freshly Squeezed tactics. And Cassidy’s International Championship card is open to just about anyone at this point.

Really good tag title match, but I should’ve figured shenanigans would help The Gunns retain. The Kingdom and Top Flight are solidly ROH Tag title contenders with #ReachForTheSky needing teams. Plus, The Gunns’ real story is with FTR, who came back to have a really good promo with them. Gunns VS FTR, Titles VS AEW contracts could honestly go either way. There’s a lot of talk out there of FTR going back to WWE since it’s under HHH right now, so this move could be how FTR exits AEW, but this could also be what guarantees FTR staying. Either way, this is going to be some really big stuff for the titles.

Good promo from Jade and her group, and you do have to appreciate Sterling’s gimmick of bringing about frivolous lawsuits on behalf of people to poke fun at wrestling tropes. The security guards finally got justice, even though they also got crushed by Wardlow, and now finishers that are exactly the same but with different names are being questioned. Pretty sure Leila loses the match and Taya tears up that document, though. Then it’ll be about who hits the chicken wing facebuster first to win that title. Jade has done an amazing job being an undefeated inaugural TBS Champion, but now is the time to move on to someone else so Jade can move on to the top title.

Great segment out of Hook, Stokely and The Firm. Great show from Stokely with trying to weasel out of this, then trying to run away from this, but of course he gets thrown around. Awesome use of spare guard railing, though. I figured Hook VS Ethan was going to be how this wraps up, can’t wait to see how that goes. And I appreciate Starks getting a little meta on the bad pacing of feuds. Starks VS Juice for Rampage, if it happens, will be great stuff, and maybe shenanigans helps Juice win to keep this going. Though, I feel like Starks and Juice could each be doing something better than spinning their wheels with each other. Give me Starks VS Hobbs and Orange VS Juice for those respective titles.

Speaking of which, only the second QTV segment and I’m just done with it. But they did point out the weird logic of Penta not being out there with Fenix last week. Penta VS Hobbs will probably go the same as Fenix VS Hobbs did, and Wardlow will come back for revenge. Also, another wrestling trope that needs poking at: Solo confessed to illegal activities but he won’t get investigated or arrested because it’s wrestling. If Sterling were a Face lawyer, he’d be right on Solo’s ass. But maybe Wardlow beats the crap out of Solo as his punishment, then he gets his shot at Hobbs at Double or Nothing to put this story to rest.

Great promo from Cole and Garcia, and I appreciate they had Garcia have that slip of the tongue. Garcia is of course enjoying the fun side of being a sports entertainer, showing off his personality and just doing whatever shenanigans he wants, but he also clearly enjoys the pro-wrestling stuff of just fighting. Garcia VS Cole is going to be awesome stuff, but Garcia and the JAS also have their story with the House of Black so who knows how the finish goes. Great match out of Storm VS Skye, and Skye looked great even in defeat. Another inconsistency in wrestling logic: Riho & Willow should’ve been ringside to start because they know The Outcasts will be up to no good. But I suppose that does give Riho & Willow their moment of heroism in running the Outcasts off.

I bring up that inconsistency in logic because that match was after Moxley VS Grayson, where both men had their allies ringside. The men can think to bring their boys but the women’s division can’t think to bring their friends along, when we’ve also always seen Britt have Rebel and/or Hayter and vice-versa? Anyway, great stuff out of Moxley VS Grayson, and Grayson also looked awesome even in defeat. The BCC apparently went after everyone Hangman considers a friend, as the Bucks were taken out off-camera by them, and then the BCC jump Grayson.

And then, for being a non-title TV main event, Omega VS El Hijo del Vikingo went above and beyond anything I would’ve expected. There were some scary moments, like that Super Steiner counter to the powerbomb. But then again, it wouldn’t feel like an AAA match if there wasn’t some risk like that. BCC jumping Omega after he wins was a good way to keep the Elite reunion story going, but now there’s the new wrinkle of Don Callis wanting Omega to stay a singles star. To be fair, this is very much like the story of Callis, Omega and The Elite when AEW first got started. Callis wants Omega to return to that Omega, and he throws Hangman under the bus.

Another pro-wrestling logic thing is that no one watches the show back when it’s done, unless it helps the story. And I would hope Omega does that here to see what really happened as opposed to just trusting Callis and distrusting Omega. Or if not Omega, the Bucks can. The Bucks will have seen it on TV at the hospital (kayfabe) and The Bucks will tell Omega that Hangman didn’t hit Callis. Callis is also trying to recruit Konosuke, so it’d be great if Callis only comes out of this with one client. If Omega realizes not to trust Callis over The Elite, then Callis and Konosuke can stick together. If Omega still keeps Callis around, Konosuke can reject Callis to stay his own man.

My Score: 8.9/10

Mitchell’s WWE NXT Results & Report! (3/21/23)

Time for a grudge match!



NXT White 'n' Gold Era


While Stand & Deliver is on the horizon, Ilja Dragunov and JD McDonagh look to settle their NXT rivalry! Will the Czar trump the Irish Ace once and for all?


  • NXT Women’s Championship Qualifier: Tiffany Stratton VS Indi Hartwell; Tiffany wins and advances to the title match at Stand & Deliver.
  • Ilja Dragunov VS JD McDonagh; Double Disqualification Draw.
  • NXT Women’s Championship Qualifier: Lyra Valkyria VS Ivy Nile; Lyra wins and advances to the title match at Stand & Deliver.
  • The Great Debate: Chase U VS The Schism; Chase U wins.
  • Bron Breakker & Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Pretty Deadly; Bron & Melo win.


Pretty Deadly heads to the ring.

Kit Wilson & Elton Prince, the hosts of Stand & Deliver, are apparently just fine after getting thrown through a table last week. Elton has the mic to say, “Attention, attention. Quiet please. It is us, your hosts of Stand…” “And Deliver!” #YESBOY! And as their first official act as the hosts of Stand… and Deliver, they are officially wiping the footage of last week’s closing segment from the archives! You will no longer be able to view those “neckbearded mouth-breathing” Gallus boys cheat to win!

Nor will you see Bron Breakker & Carmelo Hayes jump them from behind to put them through a table! Elton already pretends to not know what happened. The gumption of those two! If not for the fact that these two are the hosts of Stand… and Deliver, those two wouldn’t even make it to Lala Land. Last week is history, today is a mystery. But let’s not get too far off the point. Let’s talk outfits for Stand… and Deliver! Now, hold on, talking about outfits, did you see those horrid ensembles both Melo and Bron were wearing last week? Main event talent, sure. But main event style? But wait, here come Trick Melo Gang!

Trick asks if his mic is working. It is. Good. Because he told the two bobbleheads to be quiet when grown-ups are talking. But Pretty Deadly interrupted so they had to get some “table service.” Melo says not to get it twisted. He was so dripped out, he left puddles! Talk about it. While Melo prepares for his biggest match ever, Pretty Deadly is standing here with his name in their mouths? In all fairness, Mr. Melo, Kit said it. Don’t try and be cute. HEY! They were born cute! They don’t have to try. HEY! Remember what Trick said about talking during grown folks business! We’re talking about the FUTURE NXT Champion! We don’t need that bad juju.

Trick figures Pretty Deadly shouldn’t talk the talk, but walk the walk. Um, hold on, there might be a break down in communication. They only speak the king’s English. But if they want to have a match, if Melo wants to jeopardize the main event of Stand…! And Deliver, then they ACCEPT! Good! Because tonight, the main event, Pretty Deadly VS the man, the myth and the legend, Carmelo Hayes, and his partner… BRON BREAKKER! Trick even tricks Melo there! But then Pretty Deadly attacks! They throw Trick out then mug Melo! But here comes BRON! Bron CLOBBERS Kit, DECKS Elton, and then TOSSES Kit! Elton runs in, he also gets TOSSED!

Bron trophy lifts Kit, and THRWOS him out onto Elton! Pretty Deadly has a pretty nasty landing, and the fans fire up! Bron offers Melo a hand, Melo takes it, and the two stand. Bron says nothing is gonna happen to Melo between now and Stand & Deliver. Melo scowls and takes his leave, but will the champion and challenger be able to stay civil on the Road to WrestleMania Weekend?


Trick and Melo regroup backstage.

Melo asks Trick what the heck, and Trick says he doesn’t know. That was all Trick Melo Gang, they didn’t need Bron. Bron wants Melo at his best, and he’ll get just that. And that means NEW NXT Champion, but he’s teaming with Bron now? Trick always has Melo’s back, right? Yeah, but Melo doesn’t wanna do that “Can they coexist?” crap! But Trick has Melo’s back. Melo needs to know Bron’s speed, flow and body control. Now he’ll have a front row seat. He’ll have the blueprint. Trick himself takes care of the conversation: “Thanks, Trick.” “You’re welcome, Melo.” And Pretty Deadly is easy money. Trick will make sure of that.

And at Stand & Deliver, the most important thing is still the most important thing. That’s all it is, and that’s all it’s gonna be.


NXT Women’s Championship Qualifier: Tiffany Stratton VS Indi Hartwell!

Daddy’s Little Rich Girl claimed she was going to Stand & Deliver even before Roxanne Perez retained the title against Meiko Satomura. But now with the title quite literally up in the air, will she take a spot in the ladder match? Or will #IndiWrestling finally have her moment in Hollywood?

The bell rings and fans rally behind Indi. Indi and Tiffany tie up, Indi headlocks, but Tiffany powers out. Indi runs Tiff over, covers, ONE! Indi wrenches an arm, RAMS shoulders, then wrenches again. Indi RAMS Tiff again, then YANKS the arm. Indi whips Tiff to a corner, runs in, but into a BOOT! Tiff runs in to CLOBBER Indi! Cover, TWO! Tiffany is annoyed but she drags Indi up. Indi wrenches out, and short arm LARIATS right back! And then short arm LARIATS again! Tiff dodges the next one, kicks low and snap suplexes! Cover, TWO! Fans rally, Tiff stomps Indi and talks trash, but Indi hits back!

Tiffany CLUBS Indi, drags her up and whips her to a corner hard! Indi bounces off buckles and Tiffany taunts her more. Indi blocks the whip, blocks it again, and ROCKS Tiffany with forearms! Tiffany kicks low, whips Indi hard into another corner, then runs to handspring and back elbow! Tiffany runs, but Indi avoids the stomps! Roll-up, TWO! Indi stomps Tiffany, puts her through ropes, and then uppercuts, but misses! Tiff trips Indi, but Indi kicks her away. Indi goes to the apron but Tiff TRIPS her! Indi hits the apron, Tiff says this is HER world and we’re all just living in it. Fans boo as NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Tiffany has Indi in a chinlock. Indi endures, fights up, and throws body shots. Tiffany comes back, but into a JAWBREAKER! Indi runs in but Tiff sends her to ropes! Tiff runs to HIP ATTACK! Cover, TWO! Indi is still in this and Tiffany grows annoyed. Tiffany scoops but Indi slips off and waistlocks. Tiff runs to RAM Indi into buckles, then she DOUBLE STOMPS Indi down! Cover, TWO! Indi survives and fans rally up again. Tiffany drags Indi up, whips her to the corner, but Indi reverses. Tiffany goes up and over and handsprings, then comes back, but into Indi’s BIG back suplex!

Both women are down and fans rally back up. Indi and Tiffany crawl after each other, and Indi throws a forearm! Tiffany throws it back, but Indi throws another! They brawl as they stand up, Indi ROCKS and kicks and CLUBS and DECKS Tiffany! Fans fire up and Indi puts Tiffany through ropes to UPPERCUT and BOOT! Tiffany falls, Indi covers, TWO! Tiffany hangs tough but Indi runs in. Tiff dodges the boot to POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Indi is still in this and Tiffany pounds the mat in frustration. Fans boo as she goes to the apron, and Tiffany springboards. Indi avoids the swanton! SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

Indi is surprised Tiffany survives, but she hurries to bring Tiffany up. Tiffany RAMS Indi into the corner, but Indi ELBOWS her back. Indi goes up but Tiffany YANKS her down! Fireman’s carry, and ROLLING SENTON! BEST MOONSAULT WHATEVER! Cover, Tiffany wins!

Winner: Tiffany Stratton, by pinfall (advances to Stand & Deliver)

Love her or hate her, the spoiled rich girl backed up her big talk. She is now the third woman to compete in the ladder match, but just how many more participants is HBK going to add?


Gallus is at the bar again.

They have more pints, they’re playing more pool, and they’re happy to be past Pretty Deadly. It is still Gallus Boys On Top! Mark Coffey breaks, but in walk the Creed Brothers. Gallus, funny seeing you guys here. Uh, everyone knows where to find them, Brutus. They’re not hard to find. They fancy a game? Sure, Gallus can break. Alright. Two more pints for Gallus, and uh, two glasses of milk for the Creeds. Milk? C’mon! Brutus will have what they’re having, but Julius is already too wild sober. They play a game, and once again, Gallus dominates the green felt. Eight ball, corner pocket for the win.

Great game, lads. Well, 8 Ball was never their game. Now darts? BULL’S EYE. Well alright, Gallus will throw. And just as Julius said, he and Brutus dominate. They want another round? Yeah, best two outta three. Except that round goes to the Creeds, too. Well, Gallus never took the Creeds for a pair of archers. Hey, they work hard in the dojo, and play hard outside. Well, between pool and darts, that just means they’re tied, 1-1. And they could go all day,  but Julius has a better idea for the tiebreaker. Wolfgang and Mark know, too. Stand & Deliver, for the tag titles. No Pretty Deadly, no Indus Sher, the Creeds want the belts back.

Well, Gallus will gladly see them in LA, but the titles are staying with them. See you then. They all shake on it, then head out. Only for Tony D’Angelo & Channing Lorenzo to be waiting. Where’s everyone going? Next round’s on The Don. Because they have business to discuss. Stand & Deliver, that is. Really? Well, this is gonna be a long night. Everyone goes back inside the bar, will Tony and the Underboss get themselves a part in the Hollywood title picture?


Lyra Valkyria speaks.

As she runs up the stairs and through the halls of an abandoned building, she says, “Stand & Deliver, Los Angeles, get ready to soar.” But will she overcome her first obstacle here tonight?


Backstage interview with Gigi Dolin.

McKenzie Mitchell is with someone who has already qualified for the NXT Women’s Championship Ladder Match, and asks Gigi her feelings on the field so far. Gigi say sit is too early to judge. As sad as it is, if Roxie didn’t get hurt, this match wouldn’t be happening. Also, in regards to Jacy Jayne and her bad shoulder, sorry not sorry. Jacy tried to make Gigi’s life a living hell, so she can stay home and watch as Gigi climbs the ladder. The last time Gigi was in a ladder match, she won it. And she has been put through the wringer since. But mentally, no one has any idea. Gigi will do anything to-

Tiffany walks in to interrupt. She “loves” the confidence and all, but did you see her just win and get in that match? So Gigi and every other woman’s chances just went from “possible” to “absolutely screwed.” That title is Tiffany’s. Oh, another Tiffany Epiphany! Tiffany’s gonna win by climbing that ladder all the way to the tippy top! And she’ll love it. Tootles. Gigi makes a face, will Gigi slap that smug attitude right out of Tiffany come Stand & Deliver?


Wes Lee is in the ring.

“OOOH YO! Things have been absolutely crazy around here, right? And y’all have been enjoying these open challenges, correct?” Fans cheer and Wes says that’s good, because he has, too. But he constantly gets asked, “Why? Why are you doing it this way? Why continue to roll the dice? Eventually, your number’s gonna get called.” To Wes, he doesn’t wanna be a hypocrite. When he won this title at Halloween Havoc, it was his first shot at it. And he just knew he had to give it everything he had, because if he came up short, he doubted he’d ever get another shot. And now, as champion, he vows to give anyone the opportunity that was in that same position he was in.

Now, secondly, he knows he’s looking deep within himself, but he has a chip on his shoulder. He needs to prove not just to the world, but to himself, that he can and will compete against the best athletes in the world! That he deserves to carry the title! That he deserves to be our NXT North American Champion! Fans fire up for that, but Wes says many have seen a bit of this fire from that “creeper” vid of him and HBK. And HBK made it clear Wes had four spots for four superstars to compete against him at Stand & Deliver. But wait, here comes DRAGON LEE! Speaking of one of the best from around the world…!

Dragon Lee joins Wes Lee in the ring and has the mic. “Wow, wow, wow. Thank you, all. Nice to meet you, Wes.” Wes says it’s nice to meet him. Dragon says that he came to NXT for the same reason as Wes. But to Dragon, Wes IS the best. But y’know what? Dragon LOVES the chaos! And at Stand & Deliver in LA, Dragon wants to part of that challenge against Wes. Wes says this is what he loves. Wes has followed Dragon’s career from Mexico to Japan, and has wondered what’d it be like if the two of them tangled. And when Dragon signed with NXT, Wes thought it’d be like six to eight months before they got to.

But everyone knows Wes is impatient! So let’s make it official! Dragon gets the first spot! See you in LA! But wait, here comes the Irish Ace! JD McDonagh is going to face Dragunov later tonight, but he says, “Look what it is! Wes Lee, Dragon Lee, the Lees putting each other over. It’s funny you two are running your mouths about the best in the world, I’m backstage warming up. So Dragon, you’re new here, I’ll give you a pass this week. But I suggest you grab a chair, sit your ass front row, and watch a grandmaster at work when I dismantle Ilja Dragunov.” Fans boo but JD tells Wes, “What’s your excuse?”

Wes’ excuse? What’s gonna be JD’s excuse after Ilja rips him apart? Fans fire up for that! JD steps into the ring, and he says Wes should count himself lucky that JD hasn’t had his eyes on that title. Because if he had, not only would Wes not be standing here with it, he wouldn’t be standing at all. But wait! Here comes the Czar! JD is here, so Dragunov isn’t gonna wait! Time for the grudge match! Will either man be left standing after this one?


NXT Anonymous has another video.

Whoever they are, they watch as Indi storms backstage and takes her frustrations out on a trash can. Then she gets mad at Zoey for smirking. Indi asks, “What the hell are you looking at?” Zoey says, “Definitely not the next NXT Women’s Champion.” Zoey heads off, is this the end of the road for #IndiWrestling in NXT?


Kiana James watches in the locker room.

She says that was a pretty good line from Zoey. Fallon Henley then walks in and Kiana mocks Indi for not making it to Stand & Deliver. But they are, tag champ! Isla Dawn & Alba Fyre don’t stand a chance- Enough, Kiana. She knows what’s going on here. Fallon, don’t worry, Kiana isn’t worried about the singles title. No, not that! Sebastian! Kiana’s eyes go wide, but then she denies even recognizing that name. Save it, Kiana. Fallon was in your office. What?! How’d she even get past security!? Fallon says that doesn’t matter, she saw the flowers and the card. Card? What? PROOF! Kiana freaks out again!

How can Kiana even sleep at night, cheating on Jensen!? Fallon knew better than to trust Kiana! Now she’s gonna go tell Jensen. Oh, yes, go run to Brooks and tell him. That’ll screw up EVERYTHING before the biggest match in their careers! But Jensen is family! Kiana may not care about him, but Fallon does! Fallon storms off, what can Kiana do to stop the truth from getting out?


Ilja Dragunov VS JD McDonagh!

NXT returns and the bell rings. These two fire off forearms and fists right away! Dragon watches ringside just like JD wanted as Dragunov ROCKS him! JD rebounds to ROCK Dragunov, but Dragunov rebounds to ROCK JD! They keep going back and forth, then Dragunov BOOTS JD! JD roars as he stays up, but Dragunov ENZIGURIS him down! Now Dragunov roars and fans fire up! Dragunov KNEES JD in the side again and again, then drags him up to CLUB him on the back! Fans rally up for that, “ONE MORE TIME! ONE MORE TIME!” and Dragunov CLUBS JD again! Dragunov then whips JD to a corner, runs in, but JD slips out!

Dragunov knees the buckles, and JD trips him to slingshot TORNILLO SPLASH! Dragon is impressed, but fans boo as JD throws down forearms. Dragunov gets away to a corner, but JD storms up to COHP! JD digs his knee into Dragunov, the ref counts, and JD lets off at 4. Fans boo but JD brings Dragunov up to short arm LARIAT! Dragunov flounders, JD covers, TWO! JD drags Dragunov up to snap suplex! Cover, TWO! Dragunov gets away to ropes but JD stomps him. JD drags Dragunov up to wrench, but Dragunov breaks free and trips JD! JD avoids the falling forearm, and the backhand! Dragunov avoids the headbutts!

The forearm start flying again, and both men DECK each other! Fans are thunderous for “NXT! NXT!” and Dragon nods his respect. JD and Dragunov go forehead to forehead, and JD SLAPS! Dragunov SLAPS! It is a SLAP fight! Fans are thunderous again as the SLAPS keep going! JD swings, misses, GERMAN SUPLEX! Dragunov drags JD back up, but JD throws elbows. Dragunov still GERMAN SUPLEXES! Fans want that ‘ONE MORE TIME!” so Dragunov drags JD back up. JD fights the waistlock, pries it free to switch and shove, but Dragunov hits the CONSTANTINE SPECIAL! Both men are down and the fans are thunderous again!

Dragunov drags JD to a cover, TWO! “This is Awesome!” as Dragunov stands back up. Dragunov runs in to KNEE JD in the corner, then puts him down. Dragunov goes up, KNEE DROP! Dragunov roars and goes back up top! But JD stands to ROCK Dragunov! And CHOP! JD climbs up, but Dragunov fights back with body shots! Dragunov HEADBUTTS JD away, then adjusts. JD comes back to grab hair! JD THROWS Dragunov off the top! Fans boo and JD brings Dragunov up to throw him into ropes! Dragunov flops out of the ring and fans boo more while NXT goes picture in picture.

JD grins as he watches Dragunov down on the floor. Dragunov sputters and stirs but JD goes out after him. JD drags Dragunov up for an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Dragunov flounders away, JD hurries in, and he drops an AX HANDLE! Cover, TWO! JD kicks at Dragunov, but Dragunov eggs him on. JD stands Dragunov to ROCK him! Dragunov CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! But then his arm gives up! JD hits a BIG DDT!! Dragunov tumbles over his own head and neck! The ref checks him, he’s somehow okay to continue but he’s shaking. JD stands Dragunov up to whip him hard into the corner!

Dragunov falls to the mat, JD drags him to a cover, TWO! JD grows frustrated with Dragunov, and he clamps on a facelock. JD grinds Dragunov down, Dragunov fights up, and Dragunov pries free to wrench the arm. JD KNEES Dragunov low! Dragunov falls and clutches his gut, but JD stalks him to ropes. JD wrenches an arm, to hit an atomic BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Dragunov is still in this but JD keeps his focus. JD stomps Dragunov around, digs his boot in, and then gets the arm. JD steps through for a standing leg hook nelson! Dragunov endures as JD puts on more pressure, and NXT returns to single picture.

Fans rally, Dragunov bridges up against the hold, but JD just pushes him back down. JD straightens out the arm like an armbar, but Dragunov still fights. Dragunov has turned this into a STRETCH MUFFLER! Now JD endures and flails for the ROPEBREAK! Dragunov lets go at 4 and fans rally up. JD PENALTY KICKS Dragunov in the back! JD drags Dragunov up for Kawada Kicks! And then a SLAP! But Dragunov kips up, only for JD to duck the Pele! JD fires off more Kawada Kicks, but Dragunov HEADBUTTS! JD HEADBUTTS, but Dragunov kips up to PELE!! Fans are thunderous as both men are down again!

JD and Dragunov slowly rise, and fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” This has to end somehow, and Dragunov rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Dragunov puts JD in a corner to CHOP him! And then stalks him to another corner, to CHOP him! Dragunov shoves JD to a corner, JD ducks the chop to ELBOW back! But Dragunov stands up to CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! CHOP! CHOP! JD pie faces Dragunov, but that just pisses Dragunov off! MACHINE GUN CHOPS!! Dragunov stops but he brings JD in to waistlock and SIDE SLAM! Cover, TWO!! JD survives but Dragunov holds on!

“This is Awesome!” as Dragunov drags JD back up. JD fights to ropes, that HOTSHOTS Dragunov, and JD brings Dragunov in! POWERBOMB! High stack, TWO!! But JD holds on with a waistlock of his own. JD drags Dragunov up to GERMAN SUPLEX! JD still holds on, they stand again, for another GERMAN SUPLEX! JD lets go, and Dragunov just rises up! Dragunov swings, into another GERMAN SUPLEX! But Dragunov is up to ROUNDHOUSE JD down!! Fans give a standing ovation as both men fall! Dragunov staggers his way to a corner, and he shouts, “UN! BE! SIEG! BAR!!” TORPEDO- NO!! Takedown into body scissors!

Fans shout “NO! NO! NO!” but Dragunov fights the Irish Twister to rain down fists! JD kicks Dragunov away but Dragunov comes back, LEAPING FOREARM!!! Fans cheer “This is Wrestling!” as both men bail out. They SLAP and SLAP and SLAP! They both grab hair, and they tumble into Dragon Lee!! Dragon is pissed, but JD JABS him for the hell of it! Only for Dragunov to swing! JD dodges, the BACKHAND hits Dragon!! Dragon is FURIOUS, he fires hands on them both!!

Double Disqualification

Fans go nuts as we get a brawl between all three men! But then WES LEE FLIES IN!! The Cardiac Kid helps Dragon fight against Dragunov and JD! Refs rush in to stop this brawl, but fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” Will the only way to settle any of this be at Stand & Deliver?


Trick Melo Gang finds Bron Breakker backstage.

Melo tells Bron that he and Trick didn’t need Bron to handle Pretty Deadly, or to be in the tag match with Pretty Deadly. This isn’t that “Can they coexist?” crap! Bron doesn’t want that, either! The Melo that Bron wants to face at Stand & Deliver is the best Melo. They said it last week that they have an opportunity to make something special happen at Stand & Deliver. So Bron isn’t gonna let two clowns, i.e. Pretty Deadly… Though, Trick Melo Gang, too… Screw it up. What’s Bron mean by that? Well, Trick is always up to something. Trick says he’s up to nothing. He just wanted Bron to share the ring with the future NXT Champion.

Oh, is that so? Melo has Bron leave Trick alone. Bron wants the best possible Stand & Deliver, and so does Melo. Then let’s finish this. Good. Big tag match tonight. Nice doing business with you. Trick Melo Gang leaves, but will they be leaving the arena in one piece?


Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie can tell Wes is riled up after that brawl. It seems chaos follows him everywhere. Wes admits, he threw himself to the fire on this one. But Ilja and JD will never be done with each other. But the last two weeks, JD has gotten in Wes’s face and Wes is sick and tired of it! So JD gets the second spot. And Ilja is Europe’s finest. The only way to put that to the test: he gets the third stop! So that leaves one spot left. Who will it be? Axiom walks in and says if there’s room for one more…

Wes knows Axiom wants this and he has been close so many times. But there are still so many others to consider. And Wes wants to give everyone a fair shot, sot he only way to do that, “the chaos continues. We’re about to have ourselves a battle royal, y’all! And the winner gets the fourth and final spot.” axiom says that’s fine. He just wanted a chance, and now he has it. Will the Undeniable Truth be undeniable in that chaotic Battle Royal next week?


Johnny Gargano is here!

Fans fire up for the Rebel Heart, as- Wait. That’s not Johnny Wrestling! That’s JAVIER BERNAL!! Big Body Javi just trolled everyone! “When that music hit, you all thought Johnny Gargano was coming out. But you were wrong! Hah! Just like I thought I was going to Stand & Deliver, the biggest event of the year. But I was wrong. And you know who’s to blame for that? JOHNNY GARGANO!” Johnny took Javi’s spot! Who the hell does Johnny think he is? He’s been gone for 6, 8, 10, 12 months! Has he not been watching NXT while he was away? Javi s the heart and soul of NXT! He has been busting his ass for seven YEARS! Well, no, months.

But what does Johnny have that Javi doesn’t? Johnny Wrestling? No, Big Body Javi is better! Javi would take himself over Gargano every day of the week! How many Christmas albums does Gargano have? NONE! And between the two of them, they’re Triple Crown Champion! *All Johnny. But HBK, Javi says you chose the wrong guy! Wait, here comes the REAL Johnny Wrestling! Fans fire up as Gargano goes right to the ring and he CLOBBERS Javi! Fans fire up more as Gargano TOSSES Javi out! Then RAMS him into barriers! And then RAMS him into steel steps! And then TOSSES him over the barriers!

Fans cheer on Johnny and he grabs himself a mic. “Grayson! Grayson! Grayson Waller! I know you’re somewhere around here, I know you’re listening. You wanna make things personal? You wanna raise the stakes? Let’s raise the stakes. In my hand is a contract for a type of match I know very, very, very well. April 1st, Stand & Deliver, Grayson Waller VS Johnny Gargano… in an UNSANCTIONED MATCH!! No rules! Anything goes! No one is liable for what I do to you. Grayson, all you have to do is come down here and sign it.” But Waller is here via tron. Fired up tonight, huh? Seems he feels better than when he was down and out on his own front lawn.

Waller gets it, Gargano is upset. But an Unsanctioned match? Does Gargano wanna embarrass himself on the biggest stage in NXT? That’s too far, even for Gargano. Not far enough! Come and sign this! Waller says if Gargano thinks he’s going down to that ring, he’s crazy. But Waller will let Gargano give that contract to Vic Joseph so Waller can sign it next week. And, it has to be on one condition: Gargano is BANNED from the building next week. If Waller whiffs even a bit of Gargano, he’s not signing and no one gets what they want. Gargano says if that gets Waller to do it, deal! Gargano gives Vic the contract to hold on to.

Gargano sees Javi get back up and in, and SUPERKICKS him down! Johnny Wrestling wants to unleash everything on Waller, but will he come to regret throwing away all the rules?


There is a moonlight ritual going on.

“There is more to us than you think. I appreciate the significance of my heritage, but I must carry the responsibility of progression. I will hold my people up, and lead the way forward.” Eddy Thorpe is ready to level up to NXT, next week!


Backstage interview with Ivy Nile.

McKenzie brings up how Tatum Paxley betrayed her last week, and can only imagine how devastated she must be. Ivy says she was surprised, just like everyone else. It took her a long time to trust someone like she did Tatum. She let her guard down, and got burned. Tatum is a little “out there,” so the rest of Diamond Mine let her do her. But they thought she was part of the team. So for Tatum to say they weren’t a team, that hurts. But tonight isn’t about Tatum. Tonight, Ivy has an opportunity. If she beats Lyra, Ivy goes to Stand & Deliver and possibly becomes NEW NXT Women’s Champion. Not even Tatum can ruin that.


Hank Walker speaks.

“Everyone’s journey is unique, and mine’s been one hell of a ride.” Security guard turned superstar, but he’s been an athlete his whole life, and was even a three-year starting offensive lineman at North Carolina State. But no sport could’ve prepared him for the WWE. There have been ups and downs, he’s made friends, found a mentor in Drew Gulak only to be abandoned by Drew Gulak. Gulak and Charlie Dempsey don’t see it. They say Hank’s not cut out for this, but he’s gonna work his ass off to prove them wrong. All he needs is himself, and all he needs to do is keep evolving. That is what NXT is all about.


Drew Gulak & Charlie Dempsey are watching.

Gulak mockingly calls that promo “cute.” Dempsey says that’s one way of putting it. Walker still lacks the killer instinct. Exactly! A teacher can only the door, but it is up to the student to see it through. That’s why Hank will be nothing more than “another nice guy.” The technicians have a laugh, but will Hank prove them all wrong?


NXT Women’s Championship Qualifier: Lyra Valkyria VS Ivy Nile!

The Morrigan and the Diamond Pitbull are going to fight tooth and nail to take that fourth spot in the ladder match! Will Lyra fly higher than the mountains to get that golden ticket? Or will Ivy move mountains to go to Hollywood?

NXT returns and Lyra makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Lyra wrangles Ivy down then Oklahoma Rolls and turns it into an O’Conner Roll! TWO, and Lyra hurries up to go after a leg. Ivy blocks, facelocks, rolls and steps over to flip Lyra over! Cover, ONE! Ivy keeps on the arm but Lyra rolls free. Ivy TACKLES Lyra, drags her back, but Lyra rolls to her feet. Lyra trips Ivy, has a toehold, but Ivy pries her down to an ARMBAR! Lyra clasps hands, Ivy stomps her! They get up, Lyra headbutts low! And KICKS! Ivy grits her teeth but Lyra tells her she’s not gonna stand in her way. Ivy just KICKS Lyra back!

Ivy eggs Lyra on, so Lyra KICKS! Ivy KICKS back, but Lyra scowls. DOUBLE ROUNDHOUSES bring both women down! Fans fire up and we see Tatum watching backstage. Ivy gets a leg, Lyra blocks to hook the arms but Ivy fights the backslide! Ivy spins around, gut wrenches Lyra to SLAM! Cover, TWO! Ivy keeps cool, and she kicks, but Lyra ducks to kip up and ENZIGURI! Fans fire up and Lyra roars! SOBAT! Front kick! HEADBUTT! BOOT! Lyra then reels Ivy in, but Ivy blocks the lift! Ivy facelocks, to snap suplex! Fans rally up, Ivy runs in to CALF KICK her to a corner! Then DIAMOND DRAGON!!

Lyra flails, climbs the corner and goes up and over! GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans rally up again, Lyra HEEL KICKS Ivy down! Cover, Lyra wins!!

Winner: Lyra Valkyria, by pinfall (advances to Stand & Deliver)

The Morrigan breaks through Diamond Mine’s female titan, and now she is going to Stand & Deliver! But will she reach the highest point in the NXT Women’s Division by becoming champion?


Fallon Henley looks for Jensen.

But as she looks, Isla Dawn’s laugh echoes through the hall, and there’s a flash of lightning and crack of thunder! And Alba Fyre CLOBBERS her! Fyre & Dawn mug Fallon and mockingly ask where her friend went. But Kiana runs in to fire off on them! The champs fight back against their challengers, refs rush in but Fallon sends Fyre into the wall! Isla talks trash on Kiana, she and Fyre slip away. Kiana and Fallon regroup, and Kiana says that she can’t tell Jensen. Kiana has to be the one. Fallon agrees to that. Will Kiana let Jensen down gently? Will the team be able to stick together against the Wicked Witches of NXT?


NXT Media catches Wes Lee on his way out.

They ask him who he thinks will win next week’s battle royal. Wes says he doesn’t think you can predict something like that. Just sit back, relax, and watch as it unfolds. Just like he plans on doing, and just like he knows all the fans will do. But then Jinder Mahal walks over to say he will see Wes at Stand & Deliver. And then Dijak walks over to say, “Don’t think I’ve forgotten about you.” And then Dabba-Kato walks up with a big smile. There is no one that will stop him in this battle royal. Wes can’t even. But three of the biggest and baddest are throwing their names into the hat, will any of those giants be the winner?


It’s the NXT Great Debate!

Blake Howard welcomes us as this debate’s mediator, as the crowd is clearly divided between Chase U students and Schism loyalists. These two groups argue they have the better teaching method here in NXT. First up, Rip Fowler and Duke Hudson. “How has your group approached the topic of inclusion?” The first turn goes to Rip. Rip says “Togetherness has always been the founding principle of The Schism. Whilst others hide behind their masks, we have removed ours and prospered together. Duke Hudson, Ava presented you with a gift. An opportunity to remove your mask of phony school spirit, and the Schism will welcome you with open arms.”

Duke’s rebuttal: “Um… Yeah. I mean, Ava did give me a mask. I dunno. Our university has passion. It gave me a sense of belonging, right? It’s nice to feel included in things, I guess. That’s what I think about inclusion.” Andre Chase facepalms at the lack of enthusiasm and commitment from Duke. WTF, man? Thea and Ava are next. “How does your group make you feel safe?” Ava says “The world is a harsh and uninviting place. But I rest comfortably in loving arms, knowing that there is safety under The Schism’s tree. Andre Chase University offers a false sense of security made up of cement walls.

“But The Schism raises invisible walls that block out the world’s negativity, and allows our minds and bodies to wander freely beyond.” Thea’s rebuttal: With a motormouth pace, she says “Webster’s Dictionary defines ‘safety’ as the condition of being safe from hurt, injury, or loss. Protection from hurt, injury and loss come from healing! And I’ve learned a lot of methods of healing through the connections I’ve made at Chase University. The Schism, while claiming safety, brainwash you into believing in safety, and that is hazardous to the mind, body and soul. Thank you, good night.” Chase high-fives Thea on the rebound. Where’d that come from? She doesn’t know, she blacked out.

And thirdly, Professor Andre and Joe Gacy. “How would you rate the preparedness of the other members of your group to leave the nest?” Andre is given the first turn, but Gacy interrupts! “Mr. Chase, your students already answered that for you. They are not prepared! A marble-mouthed doubter, and a reprogrammed wind-up toy? They don’t know which way is up! Moderator, tally the scores.” But then TYLER BATE appears! He apologizes for his tardiness, but he steps forward to say his part. Chase allows it, as does the moderator. That means Bate and Jagger Reed have a showdown!

“How would you sum up the experience of your group?” Jagger says, “It’s simple. Four roots. One tree.” The audience even gets involved on that one. Bate’s rebuttal: “I can objectively say that to excel in NXT, it takes more than just physical prowess inside the squared circle. It takes a big strong mind, open to new ideas. To collaborate and learn, with a willingness to listen to what others have to say, just as they would for you. Now, the Chase University experience is one of growth and constant evolution. It’s ignited a career in Thea Hail, rejuvenated Duke Hudson, and fortified Andre Chase himself!

“Now, the growth of Chase University IS the growth of NXT! And that’s something that The Schism has never and will never achieve!” Chase U’s student section cheers that! Chase thanks Bate for that. And now that they’ve beaten The Schism down philosophically, it is time they beat The Schism down physically! A match! The Schism VS Chase U & Bate in a Mixed 8 Tag at Stand & Deliver! And in Hollywood, they will give The Schism an Andre Chase University sized ass kicking!! Gacy says NO! The Dyad beat Chase U as a team, and Gacy beat Chase 1v1. The Schism is far superior physically and philosophically. There’s nothing left to gain here.

Duke says they’ll put up the school. What? Yeah, Duke, what? You heard him. Winner gets control of Chase University. Then they’re on. Chase is unsure, but this could be Duke’s high stakes gambling past coming back to haunt him. Will Chase U come out of Hollywood with nothing?


NXT checks back in with the bar.

Everything’s a bit hazy, but Gallus, the Creeds, The Don and Underboss have made it through the night. Look at the time! This has been great, but Tony & Stacks have a thing to take care of. Nice place they found here. Might need a broom, though. Julius says, “Don’t you guys know a cleaning service?” Tony snatches his hat off Julius’ head, and says yeah, they do. But not the kind you’re thinking of. Brutus says that was fun. Wolfgang slurs and stammers as he says, “Why’s it gotta stop?” Cuz the Creeds got what they came for, and then some. Then let’s bring the fun to Stand & Deliver. Triple Threat Tag! See you boys in LA.

Oh, and don’t forget to tip the bartender. Gallus is in the best shape out of these boys, but will they still be standing tall after Stand & Deliver?


BREAKING NEWS for next week!

There will be still one more spot in the NXT Women’s Championship Ladder match! And in a Last Chance Triple Threat, it will be Sol Ruca VS Ivy Nile VS Indi Hartwell! Who will redeem themselves on the Road to WrestleMania to still have their shot at the title?


Bron Breakker & Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams VS Pretty Deadly!

The NXT Champion and his challenger may not like Trick’s idea of a team-up, but if it means shutting up Kit & Elton, they’ll do it. Will Bron & Melo body slam the hosts of Stand & Deliver once again? Or will this be about “Can the coexist?” in the end after all?

The teams sort out and Elton rushes in! Melo dodges, but then Kit CLOBBERS Melo! Kit covers, ONE!! Kit drops a knee, talks trash, then runs, but Melo drops, hurdles and ducks! DROPKICK! Then arm-drags! Melo has the armlock, fans rally but Kit arm-drags, only for Melo to arm-drag right back! But that just puts them closer to the Pretty Deadly corner! Elton tags in, Kit holds Melo in place, and Elton runs to UPPERCUT Melo! Elton then brings Melo out to UPPERCUT Melo down. Melo bails out, Elton kicks him from the apron, and Pretty Deadly go after Melo together. But Bron storms over to keep them from throwing Melo into steel steps.

Bron says Pretty Deadly isn’t going to ruin Stand & Deliver. Pretty Deadly lets off of Melo, but then Kit CLUBS Melo on the back. Kit puts Melo in the ring, covers, TWO! Kit drags Melo up, wrenches, but Melo wrenches back and snapmares to PENALTY KICK! Melo runs, but Kit FLAPJACKS! Tag to Elton, he sucker punches Bron, then Pretty Deadly coordinate. “Yes, boy~!” Pretty Deadly both run, but Bron gets in so that he and Melo can stare Pretty Deadly down. Pretty Deadly look to each other, then they throw hands! The brawl is on and both Bron and Melo get the edge. Then they decide to work together!

Bron helps Melo with the SPRINGBOARD LARIAT! Melo flies over Kit to CLOBBER Elton! Bron then RANAS Kit out of the ring! Fans fire up with the champion and his challenger, but they bump into each other. Bron offers handshake, Melo shows fist bump, so paper covers rock. No, man! Melo & Bron wait on Pretty Deadly and fans bark it up as NXT goes picture in picture.

Kit & Elton regroup on the other side of the ring, so Melo tags Bron. Bron waits on someone, but Kit distracts and Elton runs in to CLOBBER Bron! Elton CLUBS Bron, wrenches an arm, but Bron wrenches back. Tag to Melo, he goes up and drops AX HANDLES on the arm! Melo CHOPS Elton to a corner, wrenches and brings him back, tag to Bron. Bron goes up and he drops AX HANDLES! Bron wrenches Elton, but Elton throws body shots. Elton headlocks, Bron powers out, things speed up and Bron hurdles, to then catch Elton for a SPINEBUSTER! Bron rolls through to fireman’s carry!

Bron pops Elton up to a suplex! Bron walks around with Elton and even Melo is impressed. Bron then SLAMS Elton, and he dares Kit to do something. Kit talks trash, steps inside, and Bron DECKS him! But Elton CLOBBERS Bron again! Elton CLUBS Bron, whips him to ropes, but Bron ducks ‘n’  dodges, only to run into a FLAPJACK onto ropes! Elton tags Kit, then Elton anchors Bron so Kit can drop the ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Kit runs to KNEE Bron in the side! And then he runs to KNEE Bron again! Bron goes to the apron but Kit drags him back in. Kit wrenches the arm as NXT returns to single picture.

Fans rally as Bron endures, and Bron fights up. Kit CLUBS Bron down, grinds the arm again, then grabs the other arm for a motorcycle stretch. Bron endures, fights up, but Kit knees low.

Melo dodges Elton to springboard LARIAT! Fans fire up, Melo BOOTS Elton! Kit grabs Melo but Melo wrenches an arm to drag Kit over, slingshot suplex onto Elton! Cover, TWO! Fans rally behind Melo as he stalks Elton.

Winners: Bron Breakker & Carmelo Hayes, by pinfall

Melo don’t miss, and Trick finishes taking notes on Bron. Melo fetches the belt, but hands it over to Bron. Will the game plan be ready so that Melo becomes him? Or will nothing break the Big Booty Nephew?

My Thoughts:

A really good NXT here, and a lot of quick developments for Stand & Deliver. I do appreciate the consistency of tag teams challenging Gallus for the tag titles through bar games. Tony D & Stacks made their intentions known last week, so them confronting Gallus was expected, but The Creeds getting in on this was a surprise. The tag titles becoming a Triple Threat match is cool, but all three teams are essentially Faces. I’m sensing some kind of shenanigans brings one team around to be Heels, and it won’t be the Creeds. I would personally love it if was Gallus with Joe Coffey returning to help win. Gallus can’t truly be on top if they’re down a man.

Good stuff out of the NXT Women’s Championship story. Good match out of Tiffany VS Indi, and I figured Tiffany would win that. Gigi had a good promo to both address Jacy Jayne and the growing field, but also good promo from Tiffany to keep her character at that just insufferable level. Good promo from Ivy, decent one from Lyra, and good match, but not that strong of a match. I’m a bit torn, as this was a great opportunity for Ivy to even have this qualifier match, but honestly, it should’ve been Stevie Turner. Stevie was the one with that “randomizer” that chose to highlight Lyra, why not give us a match of those two? It’s not like Stevie’s actually busy streaming.

Good stuff out of the women’s tag title story, too. Kiana and Fallon were both great in talking about this Sebastian, and then I like the creativity of the ambush. Instead of lights out and teleporting in, or even just running in, Isla & Alba use fake lightning and thunder to disorient Fallon before the attack. Fighting Alba & Isla off was a decent way to bring Kiana and Fallon back onto the same page, and we’re going to get quite the moment next week in the go-home. And good promo from Hank Walker but also good promo from Gulak & Dempsey. Their story will have to wait until after Stand & Deliver, and could be something big for Spring Breakin’ 2023.

Javier swerving us was very clever, I did not think Javi would get in on this story. Good response from Gargano, and going right for Unsanctioned is nuts! No Disqualification, sure. No Holds Barred, sure. Last Man Standing even! But I guess this is all to represent how long Gargano’s stewed on his grudge for Waller, and how this escalated after Waller found the Gargano house. And given how Waller wants Gargano completely banned from the building next week, it’s so obvious Waller is going to threaten Vic physically, maybe even get physical with Vic, and Gargano can’t do anything about it, thereby adding more fuel to the fire.

Great stuff out of the North American Championship story, with a great promo from Wes and from Dragon Lee, and a good promo from JD ahead of his match with Dragunov. That match was awesome, as all the Dragunov VS JD matches have been, but I should’ve seen it coming that they’d end up colliding with Dragon Lee to bring this around into the North American title match. Wes VS Dragon VS JD VS Dragunov is awesome all on its own, but great move to have a battle royal to decide the fifth person in that match. Axiom has a good promo to let us know he’s gonna be in that match, but I also like that Jinder, Dijak and Dabba-Kato each had a couple lines to let Wes know they’re coming. Dijak’s had his shots, he surely won’t win. But Dabba is definitely a possibility.

Really good segment out of The Great Debate, and nice heroic appearance by Tyler Bate to help Chase U pull out the win. And just as I was hoping, we’re getting a Mixed 8 Tag, and this is going to be great stuff. Putting up the school, aka the faction in itself, is big stuff for Chase U, but I feel like the match could still go either way. And good stuff out of Pretty Deadly, Trick Melo Gang and Bron. The promo stuff was good for Pretty Deadly and Trick Melo Gang, and we got a really good match in the main event. But naturally Bron & Melo win because neither of them was going to suffer lost momentum this close to Stand & Deliver. I’m still voting for Melo winning the title and Bron being called up. After all, there’s a WWE Snickers commercial with Bron Breakker and AJ Styles, that feels like a sign.

My Score: 8.8/10
