PLAY BY PLAY

Imperium returns!

And in full, as Walter once again stands with Fabian Aichner, Marcel Barthel and Alexander Wolfe. The Ring General’s soldiers go to the ring first, followed by the WWE/NXT United Kingdom Champion. Barthel takes up the mic as fans boo, and he says, “Imperium continues to prove that we are the most dominant force on this brand.” Speaking of dominance, “the most impressive and most honorable champion of NXT UK history wishes to address his kingdom.” With that, Barthel passes the mic to Walter. Fans insist all those things describe “Pete Dunne!”

Walter says, “There is no man and there is no group that can compete with the might of Imperium.” They are here to show the fans that the mat is sacred. And only Imperium- Wait, that’s GALLUS! Joe Coffey and the NEW NXT UK Tag Team Champions, Mark Coffey and Wolfgang, are having a laugh. Is anyone hearing this noise? Their kingdom? HA! The great champion wants to address his kingdom. Joe gets it. “The mat is sacred,” blah blah. But at least have the self-awareness, class and self-respect to show up in better attire. “Listen boys, ditch the cheap chap suits.” Wolfie, Marcus and Joe, they were coming out to congratulate them for getting rid of “that mob,” British Strong Style.

Fans cheer for “British Strong Style!” but Joe tells Walter, “we are the harsh reminder” that while Walter has the UK Championship on his shoulder, he isn’t the top boy. Imperium isn’t in the top five! Mark says that since day one, since before “big jolly Wally”-a nickname the fans all like-set foot here, Gallus was coming for gold. They have some gold. But before those four get big bullocks, just remember this is Gallus’ Kingdom! “Yous four here, just live in it.” Wolfgang says you’re either Gallus, or against us. Fans actually taking a liking to the Scotsmen calling out the European alliance. But whose kingdom will NXT UK really be when these forces collide?

 

Xia Brookside is live!

She’s upped her production value for her UK Performance Center video. She beat Nina Samuels and is back on an up. There have been ups and downs, but being on an up is good. Xia was super, super close to an NXT UK Women’s Championship opportunity. But Kay Lee Ray took that away from her. Xia is going to work hard, get a shot at KLR herself, and hopefully it’ll be while KLR is still champion. That would be the ultimate revenge! Will Xia fly her way to a title match against the Lethal Lass?

 

Grizzled Young Veterans VS Ashton Smith & Oliver Carter!

Zack Gibson and James Drake laughed at how NXT UK Media was wasting its time with a superstar that wasn’t on their level. But then they dared the Prestige to find himself a friend to take them on 2v2 in the ring. The challenge was accepted, and the Predator Slayer signed up! Will Smith and Carter shut up Liverpool’s Number One and Mr. Mayhem? Or will they SOON be recognized as the makeshift team that failed out the gate?

The teams sort out and we begin with Smith and Drake. They circle with the bell and fans troll “Ass Face!” Drake and Smith tie up and go around, and Smith powers Drake to ropes. The ref counts and Smith lets off, but Drake gets the arm to wrench. Smith wrenches back and Drake reels back from the swift twist. Fans still troll GYV as Smith and Drake tie up. Drake turns Smith around to throw a forearm to the back and then headlock. Smith powers out, things speed up, and Smith catches Drake out of his slide! Smith hauls Drake up to dropkick him down! Drake gets to a corner and elbows back hard! Drake wrenches Smith but Smith reels Drake in to a suplex! Cover, TWO, but Smith keeps on Drake’s arm. Tag to Carter, and he slingshots to sunset flip! Cover, TWO! Carter bumps Drake off buckles and then scoops. Drake slips out but Carter avoids the sweep to Eddy Gordo kick!

Carter Electric Chair lifts Drake, switches him to a fireman’s carry and hits an Ushigoroshi! Fans fire up with Carter as he aims at Drake. Gibson saves Drake in the open corner, but the ref reprimands him. Gibson helps Drake get to their corner and tags in. Fans boo but Carter dodges Gibson to dropkick-flip off Drake, and then he dodges Gibson again to catch Gibson in an overhead suplex! Drake is angry but Carter kips up to get in his face. Drake gets out and Carter goes to Gibson, but Gibson ducks the shining wizard, only to get the mule kick! Cover, TWO! Carter has Gibson’s arm and wrenches, but Gibson headlocks. Drake tags in as Gibson whips Carter. Carter hops over but gets swept to a basement dropkick! Drake stomps away on Carter and then brings him up for a BIG left! Drake gives Carter another, and Gibson shouts to, “Hurt him! Hurt him!”

Drake has Carter up, backbreaker! Carter bails out and Drake tags Gibson. Gibson has Carter up, Drake slingshots, pescado backbreaker combo! Fans boo as the Grizzled Young Veterans loom over Carter. Gibson puts Carter in the ring and stays between him and Smith. Gibson snapmares Carter to club him with an elbow, cover, TWO! Gibson wraps Carter up in a cobra twist. Fans troll Gibson more but Gibson thrashes Carter around. Gibson drags Carter over and tags in Drake, ripcord into Drake’s forearm! Cover, TWO! Fans still troll GYV while Smith reaches for Carter. Drake shoves Carter but Carter elbows Gibson! Carter hits Drake back, Drake whips but Carter QUEBRADAS! Fans fire up as Carter crawls, hot tag to Smith! The Smoke throws big hands on Drake! And hits Gibson for good measure! Smith hits a leaping lariat on Drake!

Smith whips, Gibson saves Drake, but Smith FLIES! Tope conjilo for a double shot! Smith puts Drake in, but Drake kicks back! Smith slips out of the DDT to scoop and BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, TWO!! Drake survives and Smith is surprised, but Smith focuses. Smith drags Drake up, but Gibson is back. Gibson distracts, Drake waistlocks but Smith elbows free. Gibson tags in as Smith fireman’s carries Drake. Drake slips off and shoves Smith into Gibson’s grasp, enziguri rocks Smith! Gibson turns Smith around, but Smith slips free, and Gibson just narrowly catches Drake’s superkick! GYV regroup, MAYHEM IN MOTION takes out Carter! Smith sees he’s all alone, but he fires up, only to get clobbered from behind. Drake goes back to his corner so he can officially tag in, and Gibson feeds Smith to the gut wrench, TICKET TO MAYHEM! Cover, Grizzled Young Veterans win!

Winners: The Grizzled Young Veterans, James Drake pinning

The original NXT UK Tag Team Champions won, just as they said they would. Carter crawls back into the ring to check on his friend, and he gets stomped down by Gibson and Drake! The fans boo, but here come Andrews and Webster! The rockstar and the Modfather won’t stand for such bullying! But GYV retreat! Will the Welsh air force show Gibson and Drake what locker room leaders are really like?

 

NXT UK Media caught up with Tyler Bate.

What does he see for his future in NXT UK? Well he’s happy to go with the flow, take things as they come. He’s seeing all the new faces making waves, but he’s most looking forward to see someone he crossed paths with before. That would be the Spanish Ace, A-Kid. A great seal of approval from the inaugural United Kingdom Champion, will this mean big things out the gate for the newest signee? And as for Tyler Bate himself, will he ever feel up to trying for the UK Championship again?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with the Grizzled Young Veterans.

They felt that match with Carter and Smith was a joke. But then they see Gallus coming by with their UK Tag Team Championships. Gibson wants Gallus not to get big heads, they’ve been tag champs all about five minutes. Don’t forget this feeling, make sure to get your photos with your families and friends, because you’re not going to have the belts long. Don’t worry about Imperium when you’ve got Gibson and Drake to worry about. Mark says not to worry, they have eyes and ears everywhere. Is that meant to be threatening? Will Gallus’ kingdom come under siege on multiple fronts?

 

Ligero VS Travis Banks!

The Luchador of Leeds and the Kiwi Buzzsaw each want to rise up in the ranks, but with both men getting hot again, what will it take to cool one of them off?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Ligero waistlocks, cravats and snapmares to a cover, but Banks is out fast. Banks rolls Ligero, ONE, but Ligero sweeps, ONE. Banks sweeps, ONE, and the two stand off. Fans cheer as Banks and Ligero circle again. Fans duel as the two tie up with knuckle locks. Ligero brings Banks down with a leg, then forces the shoulders down. TWO as Banks bridges, so Ligero sweeps the legs out. TWO and Banks bridges again. Banks powers his way up, the two go shoulder to shoulder, but Ligero rolls back to put pressure on Banks. Banks and Ligero struggle against each other, and Banks turns Ligero around. Banks flips Ligero over his back, then snapmares, but Ligero is right up. Ligero ducks and kicks to then arm-drag Banks down into a crucifix cover, TWO!

Ligero has a headlock right away but Banks endures. Banks fights his way to his feet, back suplexes, but Ligero lands on his feet. Ligero has the headlock again and grinds Banks back down. Banks powers up and out again, then trips Ligero to get on him with La Magistrol, TWO! Ligero hops on, victory roll, TWO! The two stand off again and fans are loving the exchange! Fans duel between the two as Ligero and Banks tie up. Banks has an arm, wrenches and grinds Ligero down. Fans rally up and Ligero fights his way up.

Ligero uses the ropes to flip through, then he holds on to block the whip. Banks keeps trying, so he goes up andaround to arm-drag Ligero. Things speed up, Ligero shoves Banks out of the air, and brings him down into a modified crucifix cover, TWO!

Banks waistlocks and lifts, but Ligero blocks and standing switches. Dragon sleeper, but then Ligero spins Banks around, Banks cradle counters! TWO, and Ligero whips Banks, only for Banks to dodge the dropkick! Banks jackknife covers, Ligero slips out and sits on it, TWO and Banks has the sunset flip! TWO, and Ligero kicks. Banks blocks it, and throws Ligero down! Banks runs, basement knee! Cover, TWO! Banks keeps his cool but fans fire up as Ligero survives. Banks brings Ligero back up for a CHOP.

Ligero and Banks can’t believe it! They didn’t win, but they didn’t lose. They still respect each other after, and shake hands. Will they clear things up with a future rematch?

 

NXT UK fans, prepare for next week!

Not to mention, Jordan Devlin and Dave Mastiff look to prove who is truly the biggest rising star in the brand as they go 1v1!

 

Trent Seven VS Noam Dar!

The first time these two faced off, the Man from Moustache Mountain was pushed into a rage by the Scottish Supernova’s taunting. Seven lost because he got disqualified, and Dar would keep rubbing it in. Dar taunts Seven even now by having the towel he stole around his neck, and the letters “RIP BSS” written on it in marker. Will Seven get back at Mr. Supernova 11 for everything he’s said and done up to date?

Seven wants to do his signature slow roll into the ring, but Dar dropkicks him out! Fans boo as Dar throws the towel and his jacket off. Dar goes out to throw Seven into steel steps! Fans boo harder but Dar drags Seven up to put on the apron for clubbing forearms! Dar uses the towel to tie Seven up to a post! The ref reprimands Dar, but Dark basement dropkicks the arm against the post! Seven slumps off the apron while Dar goes into the ring. Dar soaks up the heat while the ref checks on Seven.

Fans have not stopped cheering and singing, but Dar drags Seven around. “All your crones have left you, old man!” Seven grabs Dar’s pinkie! Bop up, BANG! Finger SNAP! Torture rack, BURNING HAMMER!! Cover, Seven wins!!

Winner: Trent Seven, by pinfall

British Strong Style still lives through the silver-haired superman from Moustache Mountain! Seven gets even with Dar, and gets his towel back, as well, but is this just the beginning for a resurgence?

 


 

My Thoughts:

A real fun episode for NXT UK here! We get some great progress in stories, like Xia Brookside’s social media influencer style promo video. Xia calling out KLR, I wonder if she’s already up next for a title shot. Given what we saw on last night’s NXT USA, plans really have shifted for Tegan Nox, so perhaps a new Face moves up now. That would be pretty great for Xia to at least get a shot and put on the best match she’s ever had, even in losing. I’m still wondering when and where Toni Storm is going to return, as I would hope KLR VS Storm 2 is a big match for a TakeOver or other special event. And it makes for interesting timing to give us A-Kid’s debut and Devlin VS Mastiff next week when that’s Crown Jewel day, but perhaps it couldn’t be helped. That will make for a real fun episode of NXT UK to go with the greatly hyped and still controversial PPV event.

Ligero VS Banks was a real great match, and what a nice surprise to make it a draw. That way, neither man is weaker or stronger for it, even if fans are disappointed in the moment. These two are in tough spots being in a midcard that doesn’t have a title, and it makes the possibility of an even better rematch very exciting. I really like where the tag team division is going, with Gallus going at least Tweener, if not full Face. The three of them are great on the mic, so they can surely get over as Faces with crowds, even those not from Scotland. They and Imperium had a great segment together, and I would love to see a Six Man Tag, Gallus VS Imperium that isn’t Walter. Grizzled Young Veterans had a great match with Smith and Carter, Smith and Carter got to shine even in losing. GYV also having a run-in with Andrews and Webster in the ring, then Gallus backstage is all good. I would love if NXT UK escalates their tag title match to a Fatal 4. The Triple Threat was incredible, adding a fourth would make it epic!

And speaking of epic, that Dar VS Seven match reached some real TakeOver worthy levels. I loved all the story put into it, like Dar knowing about the slow roll but Seven knowing about the table top. Dar trying to steal the British Strong Style moves only for Seven to use them was also great, but it really does show that Dunne and Bate seem to be on their way out of UK into more the US NXT and possibly main roster after that. We saw Bate start beef with Grimes and we know Dunne has both Damien Priest and Killian Dain to think about. I would almost hope Seven gets one more big thing in UK before reuniting British Strong Style in the states.

My Score: 8.5/10

Backstage interview with Chase U.

Kelly Kincaid is with Andre Chase, Riley Osborn, Thea Hail & Ridge Holland, but she also brings up that Roxanne Perez will be speaking later tonight. Thea asks if Kelly really just mentioned Roxie. She did. Thea has to go! Whoa, wait, what? Thea takes off, Ridge hurries after and Chase says it’ll be up to Ridge to keep an eye on her. But that means Chase & Riley take the interview. Kelly says this is a big night for Chase U as Duke Hudson will challenge Oba Femi for the North American Championship. Chase says when Duke is on his A Game, very few superstars in the WWE can stop him. And Duke understands opportunities don’t always come around, so he has to cash in tonight.

Chase says tonight, the MVP of Chase U shows up, shows out, and becomes the NEW NXT North American Champion. Riley says he was worried before, but he knows Duke’s been proving the haters wrong. Duke is going to beta the unbeatable, do the unthinkable, and bring home that title to Chase U! Kelly thanks them for their time, and says Oba VS Duke is our massive main event tonight. Will Duke put it all on the line to take home the gold? Or will no one ever dethrone The Ruler?

 

Ethan Page talks with Ava Raine in her office.

All Ego says he sure did enjoy last week, because now we are officially one week into the Era of Ego. And he has some very valid complaints! Their champion feels this is an unsafe work environment, and wants to know what Ava is doing- OH NO here comes Oro Mensah! Ava keeps Oro from getting his hands on Ethan, and she tells him to stop! They are not doing this in her office. This is what Ethan is talking about! How is he to defend the championship with dignity and honor when he has to deal with this!? Oro tells Ethan to shut his mouth and defend it against Oro tonight! Oh, yes, let’s reward terrible behavior!

Ethan tells Oro’s little fantasy of getting a shot at this title will NEVER happen. And Oro has no chance in Hell of EVER pinning Ethan 1-2-3! Ava tells them both to stop. Oro is not in the title picture now because he just keeps attacking Ethan. Oro says fine, fine. The longer Ethan runs away, the worse it will get for him. Ava says okay, hold on. If Ethan wants to defend his title so bad, then he’ll defend it tonight. O-Okay. Great idea! And it’ll be against someone with honor and dignity, aka NOT ORO. It’ll be… Uh… DANTE CHEN! Ava likes that idea. Oro says he hopes Dante kicks Ethan’s ass then.

Ava has Oro move on, but perhaps Ethan just stepped in it. Is he taking the Singapore Warrior too lightly? Or can All Ego put his money where his mouth is instead of his foot?

 

The Great American Bash returns!

Not only that, but it will be a TWO WEEK SPECIAL EVENT, on the SyFy Network! Tuesday, July 30th and Tuesday, August 6th, tune in for NXT’s biggest Summer tradition.

 

Roxanne Perez is here!

The fans are torn as The Prodigy struts her way out, NXT Women’s Championship on her shoulder. She steps into the ring, grabs a mic, and asks, “So what’s it gonna take for everyone to start treating me like the champion I am? Last Sunday, I defeated the biggest badass NXT has, retained my title, added another name to the resume, and you’d think that because of that, I’d be receiving my flowers. I mean, the WWE Universe is literally witnessing greatness before their eyes, and what do they do? They give Lola Vice, the LOSER of the match, a standing ovation. Hello? It should’ve been me!

“You guys don’t deserve to watch a once in a lifetime performer like me. You really don’t. At 22 years old, I am just so damn good. And I haven’t even hit my prime yet. How untouchable am I gonna be in five years? Because I’m not competing against anyone inside that locker room, I’m competing with the history books. And uh, speaking of history, because I sure know mine… 13 years ago tomorrow, charlotte Flair had her very first NXT TV match. And 13 years later, she’s a 14-TIME World Champion, The Queen, a future Hall of Famer. But guess what? I’m on pace to shatter all of her records!

“Bayley’s, Asuka’s, Rhea’s… But uh, y’know what really, really pisses me off? It’s the fact that all the talk online is, ‘When Giulia comes to NXT, Roxanne is in trouble~! When Stephanie Vaquer comes, she’s gonna run through the NXT Women’s Division! Well y’know what? Why don’t you go ahead and roll out the red carpet for them. Matter of fact, roll out the red carpet for any talent around the world, because when they step inside the ring with me, no one compares to The Prodigy. Which is why I find it quite laughable that Thea Hail is my next opponent. I mean, c’mon, she has a good of a chance at beating me as Duke Hudson has of beating Oba Femi.”

But here comes Thea! Thea tells Roxie that seriously, no no no. Roxie’s problem is that she comes here, acts like people owe her respect, but in reality, nobody owes her anything. And honestly, Roxie barely escaped Heatwave with that title. And while their paths have never really crossed, Thea honestly used to look up to Roxie. She and Roxie seemed so alike. The fact that Roxie even comes out here and says it is laughable, Roxie should know what it is to be underestimated, to have people doubt you! So go ahead, Roxie. Doubt Thea. Thea has broken doubters’ noses! She has fractured doubters’ arms! She has defeated the doubters that she was never supposed to beat.

So at Great American Bash, let’s open that history book Roxie wants to rewrite, and then hand Thea the pen so that Thea can write, “Thea Hail: One of the Youngest NXT Women’s Champions!” The fans fire up but Roxie is amused. Aw, Thea, how brave coming out here without the chaperones. But Roxie isn’t underestimating Thea. She just knows that as long as Roxie has the title, it won’t be Thea’s time, or anyone else’s time. So here is some free advice: Thea is not ready. Coming from someone that knows, Roxie knows what it is to lose out on this title. How it can make you spiral, lose control. Let’s not forget when Mr. Chase threw in the towel…

Thea is getting worked up as Roxie says the title is for “big girls,” not children. Thea can say she’s “a grown ass woman,” but she’s really just a little girl. That sets Thea off, but Roxie is ready! Roxie kicks low, fires off hands, but so does Thea! Roxie wrangles Thea into a CROSSFACE! Thea rolls through to get the KIMURA! The fans fire up as Roxie pops free to crossface, but Thea rolls to KIMURA!! Roxie flails, but Ridge gets in to stop Thea. Roxie runs away, title in hand. The fans fire up for Thea, will she prove The Prodigy isn’t a prodigy anymore?

 

Backstage interview with Kelani Jordan.

Kelly Kincaid says the inaugural North American Women’s Champion is still North American Women’s Champion after an incredible match with Sol Ruca at Heatwave. Kelani says Sol is amazing, she had to pull out some crazy moves to win. But when one challenge ends, another begins. Kelani did just hear names like Giulia and Stephanie Vaquer, so this women’s division is only getting stronger. And as a champion, Kelani will keep upping her game. Wait, what’s Kelly looking at? Kelani turns around and there’s Wendy! And she’s holding onto the beheaded Barbie doll Tatum Paxley left behind last week…

Wendy eyes the title, then moves on. That was weird… But it was a clear message, too. Will Wendy put Kelani’s reign to bed and start a reign of terror?

 

Backstage interview with Lola Vice.

Kelly now talks with the Mayor of Vice City on how she fell short of the NXT Women’s Championship. But she also proved that she belongs in the title scene. Lola says she left it all in the ring. She fought through the pain, nearly broke her hand, and still Roxie could not tap her out. She took FIVE Pop Rox, but next time, it won’t be enough. Fallon Henley walks in with Jacy Jayne & Jazmyn Nyx and says this is exactly what they’ve been talking about! New girl had her title shot, and lost. Jacy has an idea: Lola should just go back to MMA, since she made a bigger name while being here.

Jacy says American Top Team would probably welcome her back with open arms! And NXT will sure miss her~. Because clearly, rookie- Oh, keep saying that, but what about Jazmyn? Lola ain’t going anywhere. Jacy says Jazmyn’s different. She is with them. The exception to the rule and all. But hey, if Lola’s a fighter, then she should go and fight. Lola says yeah, that’s true. She is a fighter, and she’s looking at her next opponent. Jacy gets a little worried, but will the Latina Heat burn down all of this toxic element?

 

Je’Von Evans VS Brooks Jensen w/ Josh Briggs!

The Young OG was supposed to be in last week’s main event match alongside Trick Williams, but the rather unstable and unpredictable second generation superstar “made an impact” but taking him out! Will Je’Von return the favor by bouncing Brooks right out of NXT? Or will Jensen just finish the job he started?

NXT returns and Jensen makes his entrance. Jensen tells Briggs he doesn’t need Briggs out here. Briggs counters by bringing up how he stuck his neck out for Jensen, he is responsible for him now. Jensen goes to the ring, and Je’Von wants to get right in his face. The ref keeps them back, the bell rings, and Je’Von runs in! Jensen picks him up to RAM him into the corner! Jensen RAMS into Je’Von, whips corner to corner, but Je’Von goes up and over. Je’Von fires haymakers, runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges then RANAS Jensen into ropes !Jensen rebounds into a DROPKICK! Jensen bails out, Je’Von storms over, but Jensen trips him up.

Jensen drags Je’Von out but Je’Von ROCKS him first! And again! And again! The fans fire up, Jensen shoves Je’Von back. Je’Von runs back in, but Jensen pops him up to FLAPJACK him on barriers! Those bad ribs bother Je’Von, but he still ELBOWS Jensen away. And SUPERKICKS him down! The fans fire up and Je’Von snarls. Je’Von then goes up and up to QUEBRADA! Down goes Jensen and the fans fire up! Je’Von puts Jensen in, runs to rebound and SPIN KICK! Cover, TWO!! Jensen survives but Je’Von keeps cool. Je’Von goes corner to corner, but Jensen dodges the splash! those ribs suffer more damage, but Je’Von still CHOPS!

Jensen LARIATS Je’Von down! Jensen rains down fists, drags Je’Von out, and GOURD BUSTER on the desk! Je’Von sputters, Jensen mockingly says this boy is bouncy. Then Jensen goes to the apron, to FLYING LEG DROP to the desk!! Jensen mocks Je’Von while Je’Von struggles to breathe, and NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and the two are throwing hands against ropes. Je’Von whips, Jensen reverses and kitchen sink KNEES! Je’Von sputters but Jensen shakes off those shots. Jensen then digs a knee into Je’Von’s back and pulls him with a chinlock. Je’Von endures, the fans rally up, and Je’Von fights up! Je’Von throws body shots, but Jensen gut wrenches to THROW Je’Von! Je’Von flounders to a corner, Jensen runs in, but Je’Von dodges now! Jensen ELBOWS Je’Von, goes up, but Je’Von goes up to get him! SUPER STEINER! The fans fire up as Je’Von huffs ‘n’ puffs and rises up. Jensen runs back in, Je’Von dodges and LEAPING LARIATS!

Je’Von rallies with elbows, then whips, but Jensen reverses. Jensen runs in, blocks a boot, but Je’Von traps Jensen’s foot! Je’Von ROCKS, CHOPS, and then SMACKS Jensen off buckles. SPIN KICK, and then Je’Von goes to the apron. Springboard and CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Jensen is showing toughness but Je’Von stays focused. Je’Von springboards, but into a Gory Especial! Je’Von flips up and over but into a GOTCH NEUTRALIZER! Cover, TWO!! And now Shawn Spears makes his way out here? We know he doesn’t like Je’Von much but why is he out here? Briggs steps in Spears’ way, but Jensen hurries out to tell Briggs not to waste his time on Spears.

Briggs stands down, but Je’Von FLIES onto Jensen! The fans fire up again and Je’Von puts Jensen in. Je’Von goes up and up and SUPER O G CUTTER~! Cover, Je’Von wins!

Winner: Je’Von Evans, by pinfall

And that is payback served! The Young OG shows he can grit it out and come away with the win, but will- OH NO, Jensen attacks Je’Von! Jensen’s a sore loser! Briggs runs in there to stop Jensen and asks what the hell! Jensen continues to cross the line, is his second chance about to be his last chance?

 

The D’Angelo Family is playing cards backstage.

Then someone says, “Psst!” We look over to see it’s Charlie Dempsey. The Family is confused, but Tony tells Stacks not to look at his cards. Stacks asks who Tony thinks he is, but Rizzo does keep an eye on Stacks. Tony walks over to Dempsey and asks what this is about. You don’t “Psst” at The Don. Dempsey says forget about that. But the uh, you know what, right? Oh yeah, the D’Angelo Trunk Tactic, yeah. Myles was telling him. Myles did what? Oh yeah, he won’t shut up about it. Joking! Tony’s just busting Dempsey’s balls. The Don knows everything that goes on around here. But hey, to be honest, Tony didn’t think Dempsey had it in him, so he’s impressed.

Dempsey won’t be sweet talked, he’s still coming for the Heritage Cup. Does the sun rise in the morning? Of course Dempsey is, Tony knows. But what’s this breaking news Dempsey has? Well, Dempsey found himself in a bit of a situation and needs some advice. What kind of situation? Hypothetically speaking, let’s say a witness saw him. Then take him “for a swim.” Hypothetically, let’s say it wasn’t a him but a her. Oh… Well, Dempsey is going to take care of this on his own. But doesn’t Tony take care of things? Not this one. Dempsey’s still stuck, what is he to do about Wren Sinclair?

 

Backstage interview with Dante Chen.

Sarah Schreiber asks the Singapore Warrior about his NXT Championship opportunity. Dante is extremely surprised. But this is exactly why he gets up early in the morning to train like an animal, why he goes for runs during the day when it’s 100+ degrees, and why he studies film every night. And he’s no fool, Ethan Page thinks Dante is an easy first defense. Dante has learned that when you get your moment, you gotta make the most of it. Dante heads out, will he be able to take advantage of All Ego’s arrogance?

 

Trick Williams vents backstage.

He worked so damn hard for the NXT Championship, and while a title doesn’t define a man, looking at himself without it, he doesn’t recognize himself. He has to get back to being himself and doing his own thing. On the phone is Ilja Dragunov! And the Mad Dragon tells Trick this is simply a journey of redemption. When Ilja lost that title, is world changed. He got drafted, so his new goals became based on his new surroundings. He seeks to conquer new worlds, but the question for Trick is… What does Trick want? He wants that title back! But Ethan won’t just give him a rematch.

Ilja wishes he could help Trick more, but these are two very different situations. Just hang in there, Trick. Trick ends the call, and he spots Pete Dunne watching him. Trick asks Dunne from some advice, but Dunne just tells him, “Figure it out.” The Bruiserweight leaves Trick confused, but will Trick figure out how to earn his shot at the top title?

 

NXT Championship: Ethan Page VS Dante Chen!

Speaking of the top title, the threat of Oro coming for him rattled All Ego into just spitting out a name. Now the Singapore Warrior has his own shot at this championship, and his whole world could change, too! Will Dante make this a one and done to reach the top? Or will Ethan be able to back up all the talk and hold onto the gold?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is really ready for this moment!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally hard for Dante but Ethan headlocks. Dante powers up and out but Ethan runs him over! Ethan taunts Dante, saying this is his chance. Dante stands up, they tie up, and Ethan powers Dante to a corner. The ref counts, Ethan lets off with a pat on the head, but that just upsets Dante. Ethan grins at the cameras, but Dante rolls him up! TWO!! Ethan is mad now, but Dante dodges him to ROCK and CHOP and repeat! Dante whips but Ethan blocks. Ethan ROCKS Dante, headlocks, but Dante powers up and out. Dante hurdles, drops, and ELBOWS Ethan, to then UPPERCUT and CHOP!

Dante sits Ethan up to SUPERKICK him down! Cover, TWO! Ethan survives but Dante stays cool. Dante gets moving, but Ethan TOSSES him up and out! Dante staggers up but Ethan FLYING SHOULDER TACKLES! Down goes Dante but Ethan puts him in fast. Ethan rains down fists while the fans boo. Ethan lets off, storms around, then stands Dante up. Ethan whips Dante, ELBOWS him down, then scoops him to POWERSLAM him! Cover, TWO! Dante stays in this but Ethan wants a better count. Ethan scuffs Dante, talks trash on him, then pie faces him! Dante fires body shots and jabs in return!

Dante CHOPS, ROCKS, and repeat! Ethan knees low, scoops, but Dante slips free! Dante ENZIGIRIS Ethan and the fans fire up! Dante runs in, Ethan puts him on the apron, but Dante RAMS in!

Dante rallies with more shots, then an atomic drop! Dante runs but Ethan dodges the boot! Ethan kicks low, reels Dante in, but Dante cradle counters! TWO!! Ethan escapes again, but Dante gets around to backslide! TWO! Ethan staggers up into a BOOT!

The fans fire up as Ethan falls! Dante grits his teeth, vows to end this, and he takes aim. Dante DOUBLE CHOPS Ethan down! Cover, TWO!! Dante grows frustrated but he hurries to a corner. Dante goes out to the apron, springboards back in, but Ethan dodges! Dante staggers up, and Ethan BOOTS him down! Ethan is mad, and he drags Dante up. Canadian Rack, for the EGO’S EDGE! Cover, Ethan wins!

Winner: Ethan Page, by pinfall (still NXT Champion)

All Ego sarcastically shakes Dante’s hand, but then ORO RUNS IN! The fans fire up as Main Man Mensah gets shots in, but then Ethan kicks low and DDTS! Ethan taunts Oro with the title. “Not on your best day, Oro!” The fans boo but Ethan just grins and leaves Oro behind. Only for Oro to pursue! The brawl goes up the ramp, then back to ringside! Oro puts Ethan in and LARIATS him down! And again! Then he SUPERMAN PUNCHES! Ethan blocks a kick, but not the ROLLING KICK! The fans are thunderous as Oro MURAMASAS Ethan in a corner! Oro covers, and he counts it! That’s three right there! Did Oro just prove he is worthy of the gold?

 

Duke Hudson speaks.

“What started as a gambler… grew into the MVP. Tonight, I become the NXT North American Champion.” Duke promises the biggest Andre Chase University style ass whooping, but will he be able to dethrone the Ruler? Or will he go broke trying?

 

NXT has BIG events coming!

Sunday, September 1st, the Ball Arena in Denver, Colorado will host No Mercy 2024! And then on Sunday, October 27th, Hershey, Pennsylvania’s Giant Center hosts Halloween Havoc 2024! Get your tickets starting July 24th, and be ready for big nights in NXT history!

 

Gallus regroups backstage.

Mark says any other night, they would’ve battered those three. Wolfgang says yeah, the “shiny new toys” had their 15 minutes of fame, so now they can go back to TNA. And Joe asks the boys if they saw “that clown” looking at him? If Joe hears the name “Joe Hendry” one more time- Wait. The music plays, and clap clap, Hendry steps in! Don’t be mad at him, Coffey just said his name. Wolfgang doesn’t care, just go back to Scotland. Hendry says he understands, he’d be just as mad, too. They’ve been working for years, and then someone just strolled in to become the most talked about star in all of NXT. But the reality is, Hendry’s sticking around, he likes it here.

Coffey says the thing is, Joe Hendry, no one here actually likes him! Oh, really? Yeah! Cuz when they think of Scotland, they think of Gallus. They think of Drew McIntyre! They do NOT think of some flash in the pan. Well maybe they’d feel just a little bit better if they believed in The Answer to All Life’s Problems, Joe Hendry. Hendry leaves, and Joe Coffey swears, if he sees that guy one more time…! But will Gallus ever learn to accept Joe Hendry?

 

Izzi Dame VS Tatum Paxley!

The “It Girl,” the volleyball ace, has gotten the attention of a rather twisted individual. But will Izzi show Tatum that obsession is bad for your health? Or will Tatum break the mean girl mentally and physically?

Speaking of, Tatum creeps Izzi out by crawling right under her! Izzi asks what the hecc! Izzi stomps, Tatum dodges, the bell rings and Tatm RAN- NO! Izzi stops the rana to go for ropes. But Tatum uses that to HANGING HEADSCISSOR! Tatum then BOPS Izzi, Izzi staggers away, and Tatum goes up to springboard MISSILE DROPKICK! The fans fire up as Tatum watches Izzi flounder around. Tatum then runs in to BODY CHECK from behind! Then Tatum schoolgirl KICKS Izzi down! Cover, TWO! Izzi staggers up, Tatum runs in and leaps, but into Izzi’s arms! Izzi runs to BACKBREAKER!

Izzi hauls Tatum back up to SLAM her down! Tatum flounders now, and Izzi storms up to stomp away! The ref counts as Tatum is on the ropes. Izzi lets off to drag Tatum back and drop an elbow!

The fans boo but Izzi storms back in. Izzi scoops Tatum for another BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Izzi is frustrated but she reels Tatum in. Canadian Rack, and a backbreaker torture rack!

Winner: Tatum Paxley, by pinfall

As Izzi says, it is what it is, and Tatum twists her around for her own victory! Tatum then spots Wendy. Tatum has the doll’s head, Wendy has the body, will these two unite as one to take over NXT?

 

Thea and Ridge regroup backstage.

Thea asks why Ridge stopped her! She was gonna rip Roxie’s arm off! Ridge says then that means there’s no title shot. Oh, smart! The rest of Chase U walks over and Duke asks what’s up with them. It’s only the biggest night of Duke’s career is all, and they’re going on about nonsense. Kidding! Hah. But yeah, he is being serious. They all say he’s got this, and Duke thanks Ridge for this match. Ridge says it’s all good, just bring the belt back to Chase U. Duke says Oba is incredible, but he is still a man. And a man can be beaten. Chase says F yeah he can! Hands in! On three! One, two, three, Chase U~!!

 

Cedric Alexander and Ashante THEE Adonis walk ‘n’ talk backstage.

PRIMED Alexander says the talent pool here in NXT is loaded with opportunities! But Ashante seems to see something else with potential. Cedric tells Ashante to focus. They can finally show the world what they’re all about. But then Lash Legend & Jakara Jackson walk by, and Ashante’s gone. He says, “Excuse me.” Lash says no thanks, bye. Ashante says pause, rewinds, this ain’t Chase U. This is “Chase Him.” Plus, he was here to talk with Jakara anyway. Oh, okay~! But then Oro Mensah walks in and asks what this is about. Oro will not let this happen like Lash and Trick. Ashante can just moonwalk on out of here.

Ashante tells Oro that take it down a notch. And secondly, he is sure Miss Jackson doesn’t mind getting to know THEE Hottest New Attraction. Ashante offers a hand, Jakara reaches out, but Oro says no touchy touchy. Cedric has everyone calm down, and Lash says they don’t need this. Meta Four moves on and Cedric says Ashante’s gonna get himself in trouble again. Yeah but Cedrick knows Ashante loves trouble. Is a new summer romance about to start up in NXT?

 

Lola Vice VS Jacy Jayne w/ Jazmyn Nyx!

The Mayor of Miami Vice put the Toxic Phantom of the Opera on notice, and now she looks to put more body parts in braces! Will Lola take out her anger on the arrogant “veteran” superstar? Or will things only get worse for her after being burned at Heatwave?

NXT returns as Jacy makes her entrance, “The Exception” by her side. The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, Jacy waistlocks but Lola headlocks. Jacy wrenches to headlock, Lola powers up and out but Jacy runs her over. Jacy mocks Lola’s Latina Heat then says shove it. Lola blocks a kick, gets around, and SLAMS Jacy down. Lola says this is how you do it! The fans fire up for that, but Jacy runs up. Lola body shots, kicks, and SPIN KICKS! Jacy ducks a roundhouse, rolls Lola and SUPERKICKS! Lola flounders, Jacy grabs the bad hand and STOMPS it! The fans rally up but Jacy KICKS the bad arm.

Jacy wrenches that arm, WRINGS it out, then drags Lola around again. Jacy SLAMS the bad hand on the mat, then clamps on again. Jacy SLAMS the hand, grabs at it again, then steps over for a DISARM-HER! Jacy bends the fingers, but Lola endures and fights up. Jacy wristlocks and swings, but Lola dodges to KICK! And KICK!

BODY SHOT for Fallon, but Jacy DECKS Lola! But here come Karmen Petrovic and Sol Ruca! Sol DOUBLE LARIATS Fallon & Jazmyn! Sol then dodges Jacy for Karmen to ROUNDHOUSE! Lola SUPERKICKS Fallon, Karmen LARIATS Jazmyn! Then SUPERKICKS send them all tumbling! Jacy returns, but gets DOUBLE SUPERKICKS and a ROUNDHOUSE! The toxic trio just found these “rookies” aren’t pushovers. Will Fallon, Jacy & Jazmyn soon be humbled by this new wave of talent?

 

Tatum plays around backstage.

Kelani says hi, and that it looks like she found the rest of Wendy’s doll. Wendy was looking for the rest of it earlier so good for Tatum. Tatum says it was her doll. Does Kelani wanna play? Aw, that’s sweet. But aren’t they a little old to be playing with dolls? Kelani leaves, and Tatum brings out a Barbie that looks a bit like Kelani… Has Paxley found a new, unwitting “playmate?”

 

NXT Media catches up with Ethan Page.

The reporter asks if he is upset with how tonight played out. First off, that is “Your NXT Champion,” Ethan Page. And upset? About what? He defended his title tonight, but then “Maniac Mensah” tried to ruin it, much like NXT Media just did so thank you for that. Ethan wants to leave but the reporter asks about Oro’s “pin” on him. STOP. Oro did not pin Ethan, that does not count. Ethan is still NXT Champion, and for the record… None of this bothers him. It wasn’t a pin! While Ethan’s ego grows, his temper seems to be getting shorter. Will he have no choice but to give Oro the shot he wants?

 

Mixed Six Tag: The OC VS OTM!

These trios have gone back and forth, but nothing has been settled! Will Michin & The Good Brothers prove that they are Just Too Sweet? Or will Bronco Nima, Lucien Price & Jaida Parker prove they’re the ones who run these streets?

NXT returns and The OC make their entrance. The trios start talking trash and pushing each other, and then the brawl is on!

Charlie Dempsey regroups with the No Quarter Catch Crew.

Tavion Heights asks if Charlie is okay. With everything going on, is he able to- Wren walks in! It spooks them and she says yeah, about “that.” She wants in on the crew. What? No no no, that’s not happening. Oh, well, okay then. She’ll just go tell everyone what she saw. Oh like they’re gonna believe her. Maybe, but what would Charlie’s dad say if she told him. Charlie says it doesn’t matter, she isn’t joining the NQCC. Oh c’mon, she isn’t the only one who saw. Wait, really? Who else did? They all lean in, and she says she was just kidding. Not funny! And then Wren starts trying to grapple with Myles?

Dempsey says this isn’t funny. He CHOPS Myles and Myles says she started it. Wren says one way or another, she’ll wrestle her way into that cold little heart of Dempsey’s, and get in the group. Wren leaves, leaving NQCC rather perplexed. Should they just take Wren up on her offer and squash the whole beef? Or will Dempsey find a way around this bit o’ blackmail?

 

Eddy Thorpe holds another concert.

The music is pumping, the people are jumping, but Lexis King has to ruin the fun! They get to fighting, security rushes in, and the Drama King warns The Alpha Wolf he’s going to pay! But will Lexis really rock Eddy’s world? Or will Eddy drop Lexis like he drops the beat?

 

NXT North American Championship: Oba Femi VS Duke Hudson w/ Chase U!

The Ruler has dominated ever since coming to NXT, and even the Chase U MVP admitted he’s incredibly powerful. But Duke also said that Oba is only a man, and any man can be beat. Then will Duke be the man to beat that man? Or will no man end Oba’s reign?

NXT returns and Oba makes his entrance. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and in a battle of big meaty men, we will see who is the biggest and the baddest!

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel as the two tie up, and they go around in a deadlock. Oba pushes Duke to a corner but Duke gets away. They tie up again, go around, and Duke headlocks. Oba powers up and out, and they RAM shoulders! The fans fire up as Oba eggs Duke on. Duke runs to RAM Oba, and then runs again. Oba ELBOWS Duke first! Oba headlocks, Duke pries at the hold, and Duke wrenches out to headlock back! Oba powers up and throws body shots! Oba then UPPERCUTS Duke, whips him, and he runs Duke over! The fans fire up while Chase U coaches their MVP.

Duke stands in a corner while Oba grins. The fans duel, Duke takes the headband and shirt off so he can really let loose! Oba runs in, Duke dodges and then RANAS! Duke ducks ‘n’ dodges to CLOBBER Oba! The fans fire up with Duke as he kicks and DDTS! Oba stagger sup, Duke runs in to LARIAT Oba up and out! The fans fire up, as does Thea, and Duke stands tall while NXT goes picture in picture.

Oba snarls but he’s also a bit amused. Oba gets up on the apron and steps back inside. The two circle, feel out a knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder in a Test of Strength. Both men stand their ground, but Oba powers Duke to his knees! Duke fights up, and he powers Oba back! But Oba knees low! Oba then CHOKES Duke on ropes! The ref counts, Oba lets off at 4, and Chase U coaches Duke. Oba RAMS Duke into the corner! And again! And again! The ref counts, Oba lets off to bring Duke around, and he goes to suplex. Duke blocks that, being as equally big. Duke RAMS Oba into the corner now!

Duke RAMS Oba more, lets off as the ref counts, and then he ROCKS Oba with a right! Duke whips, Oba reverses and Duke hits buckles chest first and hard! Duke falls back, the ref checks him, and Duke is okay to continue. Oba throws down hands, but Duke reaches up. Oba knocks him back down, KICKS him in the side, then has him in a corner. Oba drags Duke to center for a BIG elbow drop! Oba then clamps on a chinlock and grinds Duke down. The fans rally with Chase U as NXT returns to single picture. Oba leans on the hold but Duke fights up again! Duke pries the hold open as he rises to his feet, but Oba CLUBS him on the back!

Oba KICKS Duke in the side, CLUBS him more, then fires more knees. Oba CLUBS away in the corner, lets off as the ref counts, and then whips Duke right back in. Duke drops to his knees, and Oba stomps away! Oba whips Duke into the corner, scoops, and SIDEWALK SLAMS! Cover, TWO! Chase U rallies as hard as they can but Oba clamps on with another chinlock. Duke fights to his feet again, throws some body shots, then JAWBREAKERS free! Oba staggers, Duke whips him, but Oba reverse and clinches, URENAGE BACKBREAKER! Oba snarls, drags Duke up and BACKBREAKERS again! Cover, TWO!!

Duke shows that MVP toughness but Oba stays on him. Duke rises, Oba scoops, and Oba hits SNAKE EYES off the corner! Oba then reels Duke in, BACK- CROSBODY! Cover, TWO!! Oba escapes, runs up and UPPERCUTS! Oba goes corner to corner to UPPERCUT again! Oba keeps moving, but Duke BOOTS him down! The fans are thunderous while both men are down! They both rise, and Duke fires body shots! Duke fires fast hands and an UPPERCUT! Duke whips and LARIATS! Duke then JABS! JABS! JABS! Flip, flop and “U~!” BIONIC ELBOW! The fans fire up, Duke sees Oba bail out, and so he PLANCHAS!!

The fans are thunderous as Duke actually hits that! Duke puts Oba in, RAMS into him, and SLINGSHOT GERMAN SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO!! Oba survives but Duke has the hot hand. Duke puts Oba in a corner, hauls him up top, then goes up after him! The fans fire up, but Oba fires body shots. Oba HEADBUTTS Duke and Duke stumbles back. But then Duke runs and rolls, STRATUSFACTION! The fans are thunderous as Duke storms up on Oba. Duke reels Oba in, but Oba back drops! Duke sunset flips, but Oba clamps onto Duke’s neck!

Oba climbs, the fans are thunderous, “This is Awesome!” Duke fights back, and he tucks Oba in! SUPER SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMB!! Cover, TWO?!?! No one can believe it, and Oba bails out! Duke pursues, and he headlocks, only for Oba to SHOTPUT Duke onto the desk!! Duke bounces off, Oba drags him back over! Oba puts Duke in, lines up his shot, and Duke staggers into the POP-UP BOMB!! Cover, Oba wins!!

Winner: Oba Femi, by pinfall (still NXT North American Champion)

Chase U is devastated by Duke’s #FallFromGrace, but he pushed Oba as close to defeat as we’ve seen him yet! The Ruler still sits on the throne, but will he ever be defeated?

 

Jensen storms out of the building, Briggs following.

We see a lot of other superstars hanging out in the parking lot, too, like The Rascalz talking with Axiom & Nathan Frazer. Briggs again asks Jensen what in the hell was he doing with Je’Von. Jensen says who cares? Briggs is why Jensen lost! Oh, Jensen is definitely lost, and it’s not even funny. Jensen says it’s not like he hasn’t heard that before. Jensen then dares Briggs to take him on 1v1. Jensen is just proving Briggs’ point for him. The last time they went a round, Briggs beat Jensen pretty good. Briggs won’t put Jensen through that again. Then make it No Disqualifications. Then Jensen leaves in a car someone else is driving.

Who is it that’s on Jensen’s side other than Briggs? Is this person the bad influence that’s causing Jensen to go down this dark path?


My Thoughts:

This was a great episode for NXT, though once again rather stuffed full. Great walk ‘n’ talk promos to open while leading into the opening match, which was some awesome stuff. They also did a perfect job cueing up Joe Hendry’s entrance right as Vic Joseph mentioned him. Great win for Rascalz, and great promo of Gallus with Hendry after. If nothing else, this has to be leading to Joe Hendry VS Joe Coffey for Great American Bash in a couple weeks. And Great American Bash 2024 being two weeks this year is pretty cool, they’ll definitely make the most of those nights for being A) on Syfy and B) competing with the Olympics because that’s the whole reason they’re on SyFy.

Very good promo from Ethan Page with Oro Mensah that then gave us the NXT Championship match. Dante Chen gave a great performance tonight but naturally, Ethan won. Oro is definitely getting a shot at Great American Bash, though, as he continues to get on Ethan’s nerves. Oro also stopping Ashante THEE Adonis from talking up Jakara is definitely getting a match between the two. That promo segment was good, but I was a little disappointed that they didn’t reference how Cedric and Ashante had their “Callbacks” to NXT separately yet coincidentally at the same time. But oh well, I’m sure we’ll see them both get into the tag division soon enough.

Very good promo from Kelani with Wendy, then with Tatum after Tatum gets a good win off Izzi. Wendy and Tatum may or may not be a tag team soon, but Kelani is definitely facing Tatum for that title up next. Maybe Tatum wins with Wendy’s help? Or what if Great American Bash being two weeks, Kelani has back to back defenses, Tatum first and then Wendy after. Lola Vice had a good promo with the new toxic trio, and Lola got a great win off Jacy to rebound from Heatwave. But of course Fallon attacked and the trio tried to beat Lola down. Sol and Karmen coming to the rescue was a bit of a surprise, but Sol, Karmen and Lola is a great trio in itself.

Very good promo from Trick with Dragunov and Dunne, and I appreciate there’s some of that saltiness of Bruiserweight Dunne carrying over from Raw. I think Trick was spotted at the end of the show talking with Cedric, too, but I couldn’t be sure. Trick’s story definitely should be about him racking up wins against guys like Pete Dunne, Cedric Alexander, etc. to earn his rematch in time for No Mercy in September. Jensen VS Je’Von was a great match, though I feel like Je’Von got too many moves in given he’s got kayfabe bad ribs. But Spears and Briggs being why Jensen lost to Je’Von was a good detail, and Biggs VS Jensen in No Disqualifications, that is just screaming “Spears interferes” and we see Spears is Jensen’s new mentor, aka the guy Jensen just left the parking lot with.

And speaking of the NXT parking lot, I liked seeing Axiom & Frazer talking with The Rascalz. Axiom & Frazer VS MSK for the tag titles would be awesome just on the “too fast for the naked eye” nature of all their moves. And also in relation to the NXT parking lot, I liked Dempsey turning to Tony for advice on how to handle doing the mafia stuff, but I’m conflicted on Wren wanting to join NQCC. Shouldn’t Dempsey be blackmailing her into joining instead? He could threaten getting rid of her as a bluff, but instead she apparently wants to be NQCC because I guess even in this situation, male superstars can’t hurt female superstars.

Speaking of, we got a great Mixed Six with Jaida getting to hit Anderson and Mia getting to hit Nima before The OC won out. The OC was a bit surprising, though, I thought this was going to be OTM finishing off the feud and heading for title opportunities of their own. Then just a random and quick confrontation of Lexis and Eddy at Eddy’s “concert,” that was only okay. I would’ve rather we got a full talking moment where Lexis confronts Eddy for DJ’ing the Heritage Cup match, and then we still get them pushing, shoving and brawling.

And Chase U made for a great throughline tonight, akin to Bloodline on SmackDown or Judgment Day on Raw. Great promo from Thea and Roxie to set up a title match there, and I really liked Roxie namedropping Giulia and Stephanie Vaquer, hinting at those two spending a moment in NXT, if only just to get used to how WWE films things since we know they’re both top tier talent. Roxie surely retains against Thea, but who knows how it goes with Stephanie and Giulia. Duke VS Oba was an awesome match, one of Duke’s better singles matches, but I figured Oba would retain. No hints at Ridge doing this just to hurt Chase U, so who knows what the endgame for this story is, but hey, maybe Ridge tries to use this as reason to make him the top title guy, not Duke or Chase.

My Score: 8.8/10
