PLAY BY PLAY

No Disqualifications: B-Fab w/ Hit Row VS Elektra Lopez w/ Legado del Fantasma!

Someone’s about to feel real bad and big mad as we have a gritty grudge match to open the night! But before the match, Ashante Thee Adonis says tonight is all about the ladiiiiies~! Hey~! Oh~! Ladies in the house tonight, say hey! “Now, it is an honor and a gift to be in y’all’s presence.” But speaking of, the NXT Women’s Championship is on the card, Franky Monet VS Raquel Gonzalez. Ladies, today is your day. And Top Dolla says don’t even get him started on the tag titles. Shirai & Stark might get their titles snatched. Nothing personal, just business. Maybe some titles switches. Dolla’s betting on Toxic Attraction cuz they some of the baddest- Women.

But what title ain’t being defended? Swerve’s. Again! But no one is trying to come for it, like Santos Escobar. However, we do get Strong VS Waller for the Cruiserweight title. And we all know Baldie Bivens the mastermind at just 4′ 9″. In the meantime, let’s pay attention to the “dime of mine,” B-Fab. It’s real, and the spotlight is on B. And she about to beat the brakes off Lopez like she owes currency. Money money money~! Lopez may be big but she ain’t bad. When she in the ring with B-Fab, she gonna be big mad! If you didn’t know, now you know! But here comes Legado already! Will all that talk be backed up? Or will B-Fab have to eat her words?

B-Fab goes out after Lopez, Lopez throws her jacket, B-Fab throws hands! They end up in the ring, the bell rings and the forearms keep flying! Lopez and B-Fab tie up, Lopez pulls hair but so does B-Fab! Lopez knees low, then knees again. Lopez pie-faces but B-Fab scorpion kicks! B-Fab dropkicks Lopez out, then goes to the apron. B-Fab aims and leaps to AX HANDLE Lopez down! B-Fab talks trash, Lopez throws forearms back. The scrap continues but B-Fab bumps Lopez off the apron. Lopez elbows back, fires off forearms then goes looking under the ring. She brings out the trash cans, but B-Fab throws more hands! B-Fab throws Lopez down by her hair then rains down rights!

B-Fab brings Lopez up but Lopez RAMS her into the steel steps! Hit Row checks on B-Fab but Escobar gloats on behalf of Lopez. Mendoza swings on Dolla with the trash can! But Dolla PUNCHES the can out of Mendoza’s hands! Then Dolla throws hands on Mendoza’s head! Adonis and Wilde get involved, too, and then Swerve LEAPS onto Escobar! This is becoming a wild brawl but referees rush out to stop that! NXT tries to make this just B-Fab VS Lopez while going to commercial break!

NXT returns and Lopez digs her boots into B-Fab in the corner. Lopez only lets off to go out and bring out a TABLE! Fans fire up as Lopez has a sadistic grin. But B-Fab STOMPS the table out of Lopez’s hand. They fight over the table, Lopez RAMS it into B-Fab’s stomach! Lopez stands up one leg of the table, then fireman’s carries B-Fab over to it. B-Fab fights free to avoid disaster, then she RAMS Lopez into the apron! Lopez falls, B-Fab stomps a leg and slams it on the floor. B-Fab SLAMS Lopez’s leg against the table leg! B-Fab shoves Lopez into the ring, follows in after her, but Lopez kicks B-Fab’s own leg out! B-Fab lands on her face and Lopez goes out to fetch kendo sticks!

Lopez also puts chairs in the ring, then hobbles over to B-Fab. B-Fab wants to swing a chair but Lopez kicks her low. Lopez then scoops and SLAMS B-Fab on a chair! And then again to another chair! Lopez sets a chair up upside-down but B-Fab hits low. B-Fab crawls to the far side but Lopez storms over. B-Fab drop toeholds Lopez onto the chair legs! Lopez checks her face but B-Fab JAMS her in the ribs! And then has a kendo stick to SMACK her down! And again! And again! B-Fab sits a chair right side up, but Lopez CROSSBODIES her onto it! The chair crumbles under them but Lopez sets up a new chair. Lopez fireman’s carries B-Fab for a GUT BUSTER with the chair!

Lopez tosses chairs out to clear some space. B-Fab shoves Lopez back but Lopez reels her in for a BLUE THUNDER BOMB! Cover, Lopez wins!

Winner: Elektra Lopez, by pinfall

Chair after chair after chair, and B-Fab could not sit back up! Lopez wins for the glory of Legado del Fantasma, will she be looking to go for gold next?

 

NXT catches up with the #InDex Honeymoon.

Indi & Dexter walk hand in hand at the beach, enjoying sun, surf and even some sand art. Cheers to the happy couple as they sunbathe, with Johnny and Candice spying on them. It’s good to see the kids having good, safe fun. Candice asks if Johnny remembers their honeymoon. Oh yeah, he does. Oh wait that’s a bad thing. Indi wants #SexyDexy to join her in the water. Indi definitely gets Dexter’s attention and he likes it. Johnny says this is getting too friendly… But he has an idea! Be right back! OMG it’s a shark! Dexter carries Indi away to safety! But it was just Jaw-nny Wrestling! He knew that’d work to get them to leave the beach. But will Gargano’s plans only backfire on him?

 

“Ladies and gentlemen: Joe Gacy.”

Gacy says yes, he IS Joe Gacy. “And contrary to popular opinion, this is still our safe space. Last week, on NXT 2.0, I made a huge impact. And I have not been cancelled. I made a bigger impact than superstars like Tommaso Ciampa, Roderick Strong and Bron Breakker, using only my words. I didn’t throw one single punch.” See, Gacy speaks for a generation that no one understands except for themselves, “the enlightened ones.” The rest of you are living in a darkened, obsolete world. When he went to the back, there were nothing but “triggered” faces, and he doesn’t understand. Gacy is inclusive! They can solve all of their conflicts with simple discussion and resolution.

“No one person can change the world. But I’m here to usher in the world to a new normal.” Gacy won’t take too much more of our time with a match coming up so thank you for your open minds. Is that really what’s happening here? Or is Gacy just fooling himself?

 

Xyon Quinn VS Oney Lorcan!

A rematch from 205 Live where these two threw heavy hands, they look more than ready for round two! Who stands tall now that they’re on Tuesday night?

The bell rings and the two tie up. Oney headlocks, Xyon powers out then runs Oney over. Oney gets up fast and pie faces, but Xyon SHOVES Oney out of the ring! Xyon goes out after Oney but Oney hurries back in. Things speed up, Xyon CLOBBERS Oney with an uppercut! Xyon snarls, gets Oney up but Oney throws an elbow and kicks, then a basement uppercut! Oney rains down furious fists then paces around. Xyon gets to a corner, Oney CHOPS him! And uppercuts, then throws haymakers. The ref counts, Oney lets off but Xyon TOSSES Oney away! Xyon storms in but into a throat chop! Oney CHOP BLOCKS a leg, Xyon falls and Oney drags him for more ground ‘n’ pound!

Fans rally for Xyon but Oney clamps on with a chinlock. Oney squeezes tight, Xyon fights up and throws body shots. Oney CLUBS Xyon on the back but he just roars! Xyon throws haymakers and a SPINNING HEADBUTT! Oney staggers up into an atomic drop, Xyon runs to LARIAT! Fans fire up as Oney staggers back up and Xyon RAMS him into the corner! Xyon fireman’s carries for a SAMOAN DROP and kip up! Fans fire up again as Xyon powers up with the Haka! Oney slowly stands, into the RUNNING FOREARM! Cover, Xyon wins!

Winner: Xyon Quinn, by pinfall

That’s 2-0 for Xyon against the Boston Brawler! From 205 Live to NXT 2.0, is Xyon going to be number one with a bullet?

 

Grayson Waller speaks.

“I’m a thrill junkie. I jump out of a plane and ask questions later. I don’t put my surfboard in the water without riding the biggest wave.” He is a survivor and a risk taker. He is taking his chance with Roderick Strong! His first singles match on NXT will be for the Cruiserweight Champion, and after tonight, everyone will know his name! But will we know him for winning or for losing to the Savior of the Backbreaker?

 

MSK is here!

The NXT Tag Team Champions, Wes Lee & Nash Carter, are here to talk about putting respect on their names! But what will they have to say and who will they call out after the break?

NXT returns and Samantha Irvin is in the ring with the champs. She says they’ve been enjoying the view from the top, but what’s next for them? Hmm, what’s next for MSK? It’s that they’re gonna keep smoking… the tag team division! And they’re not content to just be champions. They will remain fighting champions like they said they’d be way back when. So it could be the old bulls or the young calves, everyone can step up, and get knocked down. BOOKA BOOKA! But the Grizzled Young Veterans walk out and James Drakes asks if they’re claiming to be fighting champions. Then where oh where is GYV’s shot?

Zack Gibson says this little reign means NOTHING until MSK defends against the Grizzled Young Veterans, SSSOON to- be interrupted by Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams! Hate to interrupt the back ‘n forth, but if we’re talking soon to be champs, just say Melo’s name. Melo is in the chocolate factory cuz he has the golden ticket. He might even be in the mood for the titles. How ’bout it, Trick? Oh they ’bout it, ’bout it, let’s go! But Melo has Trick slow his roll while Gibson asks what they’re going on about. If they’re talking tag titles, then the line starts behind GYV! But MSK tells them both to shut their asses up! The champs are still talking.

But Wes tells Melo & Trick can keep poppin’ off. Use that Breakout contract to come for them, and they’ll learn real quick what the blokes be forgetting. As for GYV, MSK has proven they’re better already. But if they insist, then let’s dance! Gibson asks why everyone talks in riddles! What are they all on about? Wait, Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen stroll out now? Briggs & Brooks were about to crack open some cold ones but heard talk about gold ones so- Trick tells Briggs to get his heels clickin’ and boots scootin’! Jensen says this morning, he promised himself one thing. And that was that the first person to look at him sideways would get popped in the mouth. Found one!

Briggs & Brooks brawl with Trick & Melo! GYV turn around into SUPERKICKS from MSK! Those three teams end up together, MSK DOUBLE FLY! A moonsault and a tope, and only Briggs & Brooks are left standing! MSK welcomes all comers, but who will stand tallest to take on the champs?

 

Backstage interview with Raquel Gonzalez.

Big Mami Cool has a huge title defense tonight against Franky, but how is she feeling? Raquel knows Franky is good, and she isn’t overlooking her at all, but uh, she’s just another name about to be crossed off the list of everyone in Raquel’s way. La Wera Loca is about to learn how quickly she falls when- Oh wait, Toxic Attraction strolls by. Mandy says the title looks good on Raquel, but it’ll look better on her. Will Mandy be waiting when Ricky Desperado puts away Bougie Bad? And speaking of gold…

NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships: Io Shirai & Zoey Stark VS Toxic Attraction!

The Genius of the Sky and the Sin City Soldier may not be best buddies, but neither of them can stand Gigi Dolin, Jacy Jayne or Mandy Rose. Will the champions keep their golden bond strong? Or will their reign melt away against the Toxic Attraction?

NXT returns and the champs have already made their entrance. The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see if having common enemies keeps Shirai & Stark together.

Shirai starts with Gigi and they tie up. Gigi wrenches, Shirai reverses to a headlock but Gigi pulls hair. Gigi pushes Shirai to ropes, Shirai runs her over, and things speed up. Shirai handsprings, Gigi sidesteps then tilt-o-whirls for a headscissors! But Shirai handsprings through that, and SHOTGUNS Gigi into the corner! Jacy tags in to slow things down, and then she talks trash about being new champ. They tie up with knuckle locks, Jacy kicks low then pie faces Shirai. Jacy talks more trash about being the new champ but Shirai trips her up and throws hands! Mandy is disappointed as Shirai bumps Jacy off buckles.

Tag to Stark, she stomps a mudhole then CLUBS Jacy. Stark whips, Jacy reverses but Stark handsprings and sweeps the leg! Cover, TWO, to a cradle from Jacy! ONE, Stark has it, ONE! Jacy has it, TWO! Stark Oklahoma Rolls, TWO! Stark whips Jacy again, Jacy turns hip toss into a takedown, cover, TWO! Stark knees low, CHOPS but Jacy CHOPS back. Stark CHOPS then kicks, then whips Jacy a third time, Jacy grabs ropes, throws Stark out but Stark bobs ‘n’ weaves to HEEL KICK! Stark watches for Gigi, she slingshot sentons in! Cover, TWO! Mandy is getting frustrated for her team but Jacy gets to the apron.

Stark runs in but into a KNEE! Jacy slingshots and somersaults to run in, but into a lift! Gigi manages to tag in, Jacy victory rolls, then sets Stark up for Gigi’s PENALTY KICK! Cover, TWO! Gigi drags Stark up, Stark JAWBREAKERS then CLOBBERS Gigi! Mandy gets on the apron, the ref has her back off and both Stark and Shirai watch her. Stark ROCKS Gigi, Shirai BOOTS Jacy, DOUBLE MISSILE DRPOKICKS send the Toxic Attraction out! Tag to Shirai and she builds speed to DIVE into a forearm! Stark goes up to LEAP to take out Jacy! Gigi goes up and aims at Stark to SENTON! Direct hit with that cannonball but Shirai’s up top already!

ARIHARA MOONSAULT onto the challengers! Fans are thunderous as the champions stand tall and NXT goes to break!

NXT returns and Gigi drags Shirai up. Gigi has a sleeper but Shirai elbows free. Gigi ROCKS Shirai, Shirai shoves back but Gigi RANAS Shirai to ropes! Tag to Jacy and she KNEES Shirai back in! Cover, TWO! Jacy talks more smack, drags Shirai up and CLUBS her into a suplex! Cover, TWO! Jacy shouts and stomps Shirai. Shirai kicks Jacy away, crawls but Jacy grabs a leg. Shirai rolls and KICKS from below! Jacy staggers, hot tag to Stark! Stark rallies on Jacy and Gigi with big forearms! Stark fires off kicks and a ROUNDHOUSE, into a HALF ‘N’ HALF! Fans fire up with Stark as she runs and BASEMENT BOOTS Jacy down! Cover but Gigi drags Stark off!

Gigi swings but Stark shoves and clotheslines her out of the ring! Mandy check son Gigi but Jacy ROCKS Stark with a right! Stark dodges the boot to fireman’s carry and ROLLING SENTON! Stark goes up the corner and hits a PHOENIX- NO! She has to roll through as Jacy dodges, and then Jacy gets a RUNNING NECKBREAKER! Both women are down, fans rally up and Mandy shouts to Jacy. Stark tags Shirai back in, Jacy tags to Gigi! The Evil Genius rallies with big shoulders, then FLAPJACKS Gigi! Gigi flounders to ropes, Shirai comes in, TIGER FEINT! Shirai BOOTS Jacy, springboards back in, MISSILE DROPKICK for Gigi! Cover, TWO!!

Mandy is relieved her team is still in this, but Shirai has a CROSSFACE now! Gigi endures, Jacy runs in but Shira avoids the splash! Shirai has a DOUBLE CROSSFACE! But Mandy sneaks a foot onto the ropes so that’s a ropebreak! Wait, that was Jacy’s foot. Anyway, Shirai lets go, tags in Stark, but Stark springboards into Gigi’s clinch. Shirai runs in, Gigi and Stark both duck but Jacy BOOTS Shirai down! Gigi GERMAN SUPLEXES Stark, with a bridging cover! TWO!! Toxic Attraction can’t believe how close they came! “This is Awesome!” and far from over as Gigi & Jacy regroup. Tag to Jacy, she watches Stark rise and runs in to SUPERKICK!

Jacy howls and SUPER- NO! Stark hits the GO TO STARK!! Shirai tags in, she SHOTGUNS Gigi off the corner! Stark hurries over to PLANCHA Gigi down for good measure! Stark and Mandy stare down and Mandy tells Stark to calm down and back off. Shirai SHOTEIS Jacy, steps on her and goes up top! OVER THE MOONSAULT!! Cover, the champs win!

Winners: Io Shirai & Zoey Stark, by pinfall (still NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions)

Despite the best laid plans of Mandy Rose, Shirai & Stark still found a way to win! They may not have combo moves but winning together is all that matters! Will Shirai & Stark stick together through the rest of the 2.0 era?

 

Bron Breakker speaks.

“Bron Breakker is high energy, high intensity, high impact.” The last two weeks, he’s been shot out of a cannon and he loves it. Trash talking, veins bulging, white knuckle thrill ride. He knows the locker room is full of studs, but he’s here to whip ass! If that’s harsh, he don’t give a sh*t! You wanna friend? Get a dog. Make no bones about it, Bron’s goal is to be champion! And Ciampa better know, Bron isn’t a patient guy. Will Breakker get his chance at the Psycho Killer soon enough?

 

Tommaso Ciampa responds via video chat.

He thanks commentary for allowing the two-time champion this time. Hell of a video and first two weeks for Bron Breakker. But let’s not put him in the Hall of Fame just yet. Yes, Bron Breakker is not patient, message received loud and clear. But Bron should listen to Ciampa. “It took me 908 days to get this title back. A title that I never lost in the first place.” No one’s beaten him before, no one will beat him now. There’s little doubt that Ciampa VS Breakker happens sooner rather than later. When it does. Bron is going to drown in an ocean of inexperience. Ciampa gives Goldie a kiss and says bye. But when will we see Ciampa take on the hungry young star?

 

Boa w/ Tian Sha VS ???

Mei Ying’s last warrior standing is ready to fight again. But will he keep making her proud? Or will he lose and bring dishonor to the team?

NXT returns and we learn that Boa’s opponent is Andre Chase. Chase thinks he’s about to school Boa on behalf of Andre Chase University, but maybe he’s about to learn something you can’t teach in a classroom. The bell rings and Chase circles with Boa. They tie up, Boa snapmares, but Chase snapmares back. Chase hammerlocks, Boa gets up and slips through to hammerlock then headlock. Chase endures the grind, spins through to wrench and arm-drag to an armlock. Boa endures, fights up but Chase puts Boa on ropes. Chase lets off and talks trash but Boa KICKS him in the leg! Boa throws knees then whips Chase for another knee!

Boa whips and KNEES Chase again, then shoves him down. Boa STOMPS Chase’s hand, then BUZZ- NO, Chase ducks the kick to hit a NECKBREAKER! Chase stomps away on Boa, rains down rights, then talks trash. Fans chant for “Chase U!” as he stomps Boa around. Chase clamps on a chinlock and pulls Boa back against his knee. Boa endures, Mei Ying is stoic, and Boa fights up. Boa throws body shots but Chase throws him down! Chase pulls on Boa’s ear to stand him up and talk more trash. Boa blocks the kick to give a kick! And then another kick! And then a BOOT! Chase falls out of the ring and ends up at Mei Ying’s feet.

Chase storms up and shouts at the SOB, but then he turns around to talk trash on Mei Ying. He gets DRAGON BREATH for it! Chase stumbles into the ring, STRAIGHT SHOT from Boa! ELBOW DROP DDT! Cover, Boa wins!

Winner: Boa, by pinfall

Chase may be a professor, but he needs to learn when not to talk. Will Boa soon target a title for the glory of Tian Sha?

 

NXT checks back in with #InDex and The Way.

Johnny is still proud of his plan but Candice asks where Indi and Dexter went. Well, back to their room, right? And what’s in their bedroom but a BED! Oh, well, that’s fine! What’s the worst that could happen? Then they both look at Candice’s own Baby Wrestling baby bump and Johnny hurries out! #InDex needs protection! Johnny asks around for the room key to Lumis 512. He gets help from the room service and Gargano gets inside. Security sure is bad around here. Bedroom found! Undies found… But yes, condoms found, too. A lot of them… How much are they planning on doing?! Are they at least going to stay hydrated?

InDex is on their way back already! Indi says those chicken fingers for lunch were amazing. Just like Dexter. Oh oops, did she leave the door unlocked? Sorry about that. Johnny panics and hides in the closet! Indi asks if Dex is thinking what she’s thinking. “Give it to me. Harder!” Oh it’s just a pillow fight. But a naughty one… They decide to take a nap, and Johnny uses this moment to sneak back out. But Dexter is watching. He gives Johnny a thumbs up and pulls out the long roll of “protection.” Sounds like it’s gonna be a long honeymoon…

 

NXT Cruiserweight Championship: Roderick Strong w/ The Diamond Mine VS Grayson Waller!

The Savior of the Backbreaker, with help from his lackeys- er, trainees, took the title from the Time Splitter, and now it’s HIS time to reign! But will the 21st Century Success Story make it his time already? Or will Waller be anything but baller after tonight?

But no time for introductions or title raising as Waller runs in from the crowd side and CLOBBERS Strong! Waller knows he’s taking a big chance so he’s taking no chance in letting Diamond Mine get the edge! Waller fires off forearms on Roddy then BOOTS him out! Fans fire up as Waller DIVES and takes Strong out at the ramp! Strong staggers up and is furious as NXT goes to break!

NXT returns and Waller clotheslines Strong in the corner. Fans rally behind him as he whips corner to corner. Strong goes up and over but Waller hits an STO! Diamond Mine is furious as Waller goes up, but Strong SHOVES him down! Waller hits apron then the floor, and Strong goes out to fetch him. Strong puts Waller back in the ring, throws hands, CHOPS then more hands! Waller ends up in a corner, Strong CHOPS him again. Strong pie faces Waller but Waller throws body shots. Strong knees and stomps Waller down, then drags him up for a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Strong keeps on Waller with a grounded cobra twist!

Waller fights up, throws body shots but Strong knees low. Strong CHOPS again, but Waller forearms! Waller fires off, whips but Strong reverses, only for Waller to schoolboy! TWO, and Waller turns Strong for a backslide, that Strong makes a backwards sunset flip! ONE, Waller sits on a cover, ONE! Strong ghost pins, TWO! Waller has a cover, TWO! LEG- NO, BACKBREAKER! Strong turns the tide again and then covers, TWO! Strong snarls as he stomps Waller down. Strong talks trash on Waller before clamping on with a camel clutch. Waller endures, fights up, throws elbows to get free, but Strong knees low again. Strong suplexes high and hard then covers, TWO!

Diamond Mine coaches Strong up as he stays after Waller. Waller resists the crossface and crawls to the ropebreak! The ref counts, Strong lets off and he CHOPS Waller again. Strong puts Waller in a corner to CHOP again! Strong hoists Waller up top, climbs up to join him, but Waller fights back. The two brawl, Waller holds on and throws hands to knock Strong down! Waller adjusts and leaps, MISSILE DROPKICK! Both men are down and Diamond Mine is frustrated. Strong runs in but Waller CLOBBERS him! LEG LARIAT! BOOT! Waller runs in, blocks a clothesline to spin and DECK Strong! Waller aims from another corner and goes up the ropes… BALLER ELBOW! Cover, TWO!!

Waller is surprised but the CWC are fired up for him. Diamond Mine keeps coaching Strong as Waller fireman’s carries. Strong fights out then knees low, but Waller mule kicks and Eddy Gordo Kicks! Strong falls out of the ring, Waller runs and FLIES! Direct hit to the ramp! Waller puts Strong in fast, somersaults and STUNNERS! Cover, TWO!! Strong survives and no one can believe it! “That was three! That was three!” But Waller shrugs that off to aim from a corner, for the LEAP FROG, only for Strong to slip out and STRONG KNEE! Cover, Strong wins!

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (still NXT Cruiserweight Champion)

Waller showed he could throw down with one of the best, but Strong is one of the best! The Diamond Mine’s front man didn’t need to cheat this one, but will his luck start to run out soon enough?

 

Backstage interview with LA Knight.

The Million Dollar Megastar wants after Odyssey Jones after the verbal confrontation last week, but McKenzie asks if this is biting off more than Knight can chew. Oh, what? Is McKenzie president of the fan club or something? “Let me talk to ya. Do I look like a punk to ya? No, no I don’t.” Knight is the uncrowned champion of NXT, meaning he won’t let a newbie open his big fat head hole and spew nonsense about him. NO! So Jones has one week to learn a very hard lesson. Jones walks up and pats Knight on the shoulder. Jones may be new on campus but you’ve never ever seen anyone like him in the ring.

But then Andre Chase comes storming in calling BULLSH*T on Tian Sha! That smoke should’ve been a DQ! Knight takes that opening to throw hands on Jones and knock him down! Knight says he’s seen guys just like Jones before and this is how he’ll see him next week, YEAH! Knight is talking big but will he be eating those words when Jones #SoundsTheAlarm?

 

Dante Chen speaks.

He represents the spirit of Singapore and its people as he lives by the motto that lets him carve his own path: Passion, Precision, Perseverance. His journey has just begun, but where will we see it go?

 

Backstage interview with Trey Baxter & Cora Jade.

Trey lost to Dante Chen last week but what does Cora Jade have planned for her next match? Cora is very excited because at just 20 years old, she is the youngest superstar in NXT today. She is excited for her future, and is hoping to make NXT 2.0 into the #GenerationofJade. Trey is excited, too, but hopes she doesn’t do what he did. He’s still on that? Cora won’t do any of that. Aw, how sweet. The two head off, but will they both bring #AllHeart to their future?

 

NXT presents Lashing Out with Lash Legend.

Lash has her own studio as her audience cheers. She welcomes us to the premiere and wants to get straight to it. The WWE Draft starts this Friday, October 1st, are we all ready? Now, ya girl knows a little something about drafts cuz she got the rebound record in a single game with 27! That’s big! Very big! And that earned her a WNBA Draft spot! But did you see that Cora Jade and Trey Baxter are kissin’ in the locker room? Now Cora, if you wanna real man, get you one like Ikemen Jiro. Lash appreciates the #StyleStrong.

But the #LashOut of the week goes to Andre Chase. BOO~! That Peewee Herman wannabe has the audacity to go off on a student? Lash bets he wouldn’t do that to her, cuz she’d come and whoop that HELLO. Until next time, kisses and hearts!

 

Kyle O’Reilly VS Ridge Holland w/ Pete Dunne!

Northern Grit and the Bruiserweight don’t even get a chance to go to the ring, #KillerKyle comes for them at the ramp! He wants revenge for them sidelining him out of the NXT Championship Fatal 4 Way a few weeks ago! Holland kicks back but Kyle throws hands. Dunne gets in and it’s a mugging but the refs hurry to stop this! Holland DECKS Kyle but Kyle gets right back up! Will this be a match or a scrap when NXT returns from break?

NXT returns and this match is happening as Holland has Kyle in a rear bearhug. Fans rally up as Kyle endures, but Holland thrashes Kyle around.

Kyl eendures, throws more elbows, but Holland squeezes tighter. Kyle throws forearms, BELL CLAPS and is free! But Holland shoves to RAM Kyle low! Holland shoves and goes again but Kyle has a GUILLOTINE! But Holland powers up, only for Kyle to sunset flip. Holland stands up but Kyle avoids the knee drop! Kyle KICKS and throws KNEES into Holland, then KICKS at the legs more! Kyle keeps firing off and then sweeps the leg! Holland staggers up and Kyle runs in to forearm smash at the corner! Kyle wrenches the arm to an ELBOW BREAKER, then gets a leg for a DRAGON SCREW! Holland writhes but Kyle runs in to KNEE Holland down! Cover, TWO!

The ringside ban means nothing to him and Holland scoops Kyle! Kyle slips off to shove Holland into Dunne! Roll up, Kyle wins!

Winner: Kyle O’Reilly, by pinfall

But Holland CLOBBERS Kyle all the same! Dunne returns and he mugs Kyle, Holland helping out! But here comes VON WAGNER! He saved Kyle before and he saves Kyle here now! Von throws big hands Kyle, joins in and they throw Holland and Dunne out! Kyle’s got big back-up of his own now, will he and Wagner take the fight to Dunne & Holland?

 

Tony D’Angelo speaks.

“These old docks here represent the transfer of items. Me and my family have benefitted from some, uh, goods that may’ve fallen off these docks.” Cousin Richie’s got a place and has eyes like a hawk, watching for the wise guys. Take one or two off the top, that’s fine. Anything more than that, Tony gets a call and takes care of the situation. It’s a family tradition. That tradition will continue in NXT as D’Angelo finally arrives in the CWC!

 

NXT Women’s Championship: Raquel Gonzalez VS Franky Monet w/ The Franky Monet Brand!

Big Mami Cool is ready to main event and continue her dominance into the 2.0 era! But will Bougie Bad be bringing that belt over to their brand? Or will La Wera Loca get some sense slammed into her?

NXT returns and Franky makes her entrance. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and two alpha females fight for the top spot!

They tie right up at the bell and Raquel puts Franky on ropes. Raquel lets off but Franky shoves her. Franky shoots in, Raquel dodges and they tie up again. They go around, Raquel wrenches an arm to a wristlock but Franky rolls. Fans duel, Franky hammerlocks to a waistlock but Raquel spins out. Franky mule kicks, headlocks and hits a takeover. Raquel fights up and pries free to a waistlock and a SLAM! Raquel tells Franky who’s in charge but Franky just laughs it off. “What’s so funny?” Raquel throws a forearm, Franky SLAPS back! Fans fire up as Franky dodges to SLAP and CHOP and SLAP in the corner!

Franky whips Raquel, Raquel reverses and then scoops Franky for a FALL AWAY SLAM! Raquel goes to the corner but the Monet Brand bails Franky out. Raquel goes out and Robert has Jessi stay back as Raquel CLUBS Franky and puts her in the ring. Franky dodges one clothesline but not the BLINDSIDE! Scoop and SPINNING POWERSLAM! Cover, TWO! Raquel grows frustrated as Franky bails out. Franky slaps some sense into herself while Jessi and Robert coach her up. But Raquel goes out after them again and CLUBS Franky at the announce desk. Raquel brings Franky over to the steps but Franky THROWS her off them!

Jessi and Robert talk smack as Franky drags Raquel up. Franky RAMS Raquel into the apron, puts her in the ring then covers, TWO! Franky pie faces Raquel and talks trash before she drags Raquel up. Franky bumps Raquel off buckles, fans duel and Franky clotheslines Raquel down! Franky goes side to side to DOUBLE KNEE Raquel against ropes! Snap suplex and a cover, TWO! Franky grows frustrated and drags Raquel by the legs. Franky ties up the legs, CHOPS Raquel on the back then gets the arms. Franky has a modified Angelito Stretch to make it a STOMP!

Franky pushes Raquel around, almost toying with her, then KNEES her point blank! Then KNEES her in the back! Cover, ONE! Franky taunts Raquel in Spanish then pie faces her more.

Cover, TWO!! Raquel grows frustrated but Franky looks dazed. Raquel gets Franky up, hooks her up, but the back gives up!

Franky grins as she throws Raquel down. DOUBLE STOMPS! Cover, TWO! Franky’s rage is back but she watches Raquel stir. Franky kicks her around, runs, but into a CHINGONA BOMB!!! Cover, Raquel wins!!

Winner: Raquel Gonzalez, by pinfall (still NXT Women’s Champion)

Ricky Desperado outlasted that shootout and checked off another name, just as she promised! But then Toxic Attraction makes their way back out? They didn’t win the tag titles but are they aiming for the top title already? Mandy smirks at Franky, then attacks from behind! Mandy, Gigi and Jacy stomp away on Franky, Jessi and Robert, before going after Raquel in the ring! Raquel just sighs and watches the three of them flank her. Gigi steps in but gets a BELT SHOT! Jacy and Mandy go after Raquel, she fights them off with heavy hands, throwing Jacy aside! Mandy CLUBS Raquel down, Jacy gets up and goes after Raquel again, and Gigi returns to CHOP BLOCK!

It’s a 3v1 mugging of the champ but she keeps throwing hands! There’s still life but Toxic Attraction stomp it out! Gigi and Jacy set Raquel up for a KNEE FROM A ROSE! The more of it, the danger it feels, yeah~! Will Mandy finally plant her flag in the women’s division? Or will Raquel come back stronger and run through all of them?


My Thoughts:

Well, well, well! NXT 2.0 can be on par with 1.0! However, and through no fault of Lash Legend, Lashing Out still feels very RawDown and in that it was very cheesy with the fake audience that agree with Lash on things. Though I will say, Lash (and Wade Barrett on commentary) is right on Trey Baxter x Cora Jade being thrown in our faces a little too much. I wonder if Trey and Cora competing with each other in “Who loses first/more?” and that strains the relationship. Also we didn’t get Trey being a superhero yet so hopefully they don’t abandon that just yet. Xyon VS Oney in a rematch from 205 Live is a bit weak but hey, Xyon is undefeated at 4-0 now.

B-Fab VS Lopez almost turning into an 8 Person Tornado was great, I wish they’d stuck with it more than just, “Use this to go to commercial.” B-Fab still needs a little polish for in-ring but she was right there with Lopez on a lot of this stuff, both have potential to become bigger names. Swerve talking about his North American Championship, I hope that means we’re getting Swerve VS Escobar very soon and we finally put some of this feud to bed. There was some great story blending with Tian Sha, Andre Chase, Odyssey Jones and LA Knight. Boa gets help from Mei Ying to beat Chase, though I’m surprised he needed it. Guess it’s more about Chase eating crow. Then good to see we are getting Jones VS Knight in a follow-up from last week, and I have a feeling Knight finds a way to win, YEAH.

I was surprised to see Gacy back, but I guess that’s them playing off the whole Cancel Culture thing, too. Vince still doesn’t know how to do social commentary but maybe he’ll start writing Gacy as more a Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde, nice and friendly on the mic but mean and nasty in the ring. I am very glad to see the comedy stylings of The Way are still just as good in the 2.0 era as they were before, I really cracked up with that last shot of Dexter. The Cruiserweight Championship was a very good match, especially for Waller, but I’m a little surprised he changed his hair. The bleach blond was a good look on him. Of course Strong won, so maybe Ikemen Jiro is next?

I continue to cringe at Tony D’Angelo promos being blatant Italian mafia parodies. And while I like that NXT is still keeping its tag division strong, I was getting weird flashbacks to the early 2000s, when RawDown had Cryme Tyme, The Mexicools and Lance Cade & Trevor Murdoch. But an 8 Man Tag of Faces VS Heels next week, that definitely leads to at least a Triple Threat Contenders match. Being MSK are Faces, I bet GYV gets one more shot while Briggs & Brooks can take on Hayes & Trick on the side. I feel like MSK wins out all the same, maybe GYV get called up to be the first NXT UK tag team to show up on RawDown.

Kyle going after Dunne & Holland before the match was a great move, and Kyle VS Holland was a really good match. I should’ve figured Von Wagner would help Kyle out against Dunne & Holland since WWE let Bobby Fish go. No more reDRagon but it seems WWE prefers making slapped together duos over pushing longstanding ones these days (New Day and Usos not withstanding). And we got great title matches from the women’s division tonight. Very surprised but in a good way that Shirai & Stark won. It is perhaps too soon for Toxic Attraction to have the tag titles but I honestly thought Shirai was going to be without a title so she can be called up.

Raquel VS Franky was also a very good match, but it makes a lot of sense for Raquel to retain. Toxic Attraction going after both of them was a nice surprise, too. Perhaps WWE is learning one thing from AEW in that they are overlapping stories and feuds. Mandy was being passive aggressive to Franky when she first showed up, so maybe the Monet Brand adds a new female so that they can have trios matches against Toxic Attraction. Actually, I’m now fully expecting Raquel works with Franky and Jessi against Toxic Attraction just once, and it all allows Mandy and her team to get a win. I don’t see Mandy being the one to dethrone Raquel but she can have one hell of a match to reestablish her star power.

My Score: 8.9/10

While The Rogue Luchador vowed to finally win the big one just the other night, this one is personal! Desperado knows all The Heel Master’s tricks, but will that help him here in the sixth? Or will the House of Torture’s stacked deck be too much even for the Best of the Super Juniors?

Winner: El Desperado, by pinfall (gains 2 points; Kanemaru earns 0)

Another main event and another big win for The Rogue Luchador! The Heel Master almost did this clean and almost won because of it, will he realize where he’s going wrong?

As for Desperado, he gets an icepack and a mic to say, “I knew it! As tough as ever! Damn. I’m glad I won.” The fans cheer that. Despe continues by saying, “For each outing, more is needed. Every time I face him, I level up. This was a league match, but that was the level of a final. I’ll keep going, and I promise to make you guys glad you bought a ticket.” The fans also cheer that. Despe says that this is the Osaka-Jo Hall main event we’re talking about! He keeps saying he doesn’t care, but now it’s right in front of him! It’d be a big disappointment if he doesn’t make it, right? There’ll be a lot of guys in both blocks “gutted” they won’t make it. “But for me, I’ll be taking it.”

The fans cheer as The Rogue Luchador is ready to be the Best of the Super Juniors! Just three more rounds to go, will he make it?

 

Here are the NEW A Block standings!

El Desperado: 4-2, 8 points
Blake Christian: 4-2, 8 points
Clark Connors: 4-2, 8 points
Titan: 4-2, 8 points
Kevin Knight: 3-3, 6 points
HAYATA: 3-3, 6 points
Yoshinobu Kanemaru: 2-4, 4 points
BUSHI: 2-4, 4 points
TJP: 2-4, 4 points
Kosei Fujita: 2-4, 4 points


My Thoughts:

A great round for A Block here, and they played up the drama right away with TJP getting that win over Fujita. I can’t really say TJP makes that big comeback to get a spot in the semifinals, because as soon as someone who already beat him gets 5+ wins, they cross him off mathematically. I really like that we’ve got four 4-2 records, those guys are all going strong. Connors has that win over Titan, though, so Titan only gets ahead if Connors falls off in the final three rounds. Blake meanwhile is starting to cool off, and with his loss to Desperado, Blake will need Connors to take Desperado out tomorrow to help him get back up.

And word came in from NJPW today that sadly, Francesco Akira’s knee injury will NOT be okay in time for the next round, or for any of the rounds so he must now forfeit points. As I pointed out last time, the ones who benefit are Hiromu, Douki, Eagles & Sho. Sho gets to six points, the others are at 8 with Kushida, essentially getting B Block to the same situation as A Block. Kushida already beat Hiromu and Sho, so he’d have to fall off pretty bad for either of them to get his spot in the semifinals. Douki is going to face Sho tomorrow, and is still to face Kushida, so Douki could take that spot for himself while taking out Hiromu in the process.

My Score: 9/10
