Pete Dunne and the boys talk backstage.

Oney Lorcan is getting in some last pumps with the resistance band while Danny Burch gives him a pep talk. McKenzie then walks in to interview them about their main event match tonight. How are they feeling? Burch is done talking about this! The point is, Burch is back, and now he and Lorcan are gonna win back what they never lost! Holland says that when people step to fellas like them, they get hurt. Dunne says not just to win, but to END MSK. Burch says “one foot in front of the other,” and has McKenzie walk out. But will Burch & Lorcan walk out of their must-see tag title match as the new champions?

 

NXT returns to Fresco’s.

It seems that for Labor Day weekend, Indi Hartwell chose her favorite Italian restaurant so the ladies of NXT could have her bachelorette party. Candice LeRae walks out with bride-to-be Indi, and from McKenzie to KC Squared to Cora Jade and Amari Miller, all of them applauded. Indi can’t believe Candice pulled this off! Candice can’t either, since Indi doesn’t really have any friends. Huh? Nothing! But here they all are! Yay~! But Amari and Cora talk between themselves. Can anyone believe Indi and Dexter are the ones getting married? Pfft, it’s a wedding in the WWE. This is never actually happening.

Indi calls for a toast. She thanks them all for coming, and McKenzie can “interview” her if she wants. No, McKenzie left the mic at home. But trust her, Indi, you’re doing fine. Indi says she is just so full of love. This means so much to see them all, and especially her best friend of ten years, Persia, “who came all the way from Australia.” Wait, really? No, she’s here cuz Disney World. Indi recalls how Dexter walked into her life, and then stalked his way into her heart. Hmm… Before Dexter, Indi was lost. There was one person who guided Indi, supported her, and made Indi into the woman she is today. Indi thanks that one person for showing her the way: Candice LeRae. Hey, that rhymes.

To Candice! To Candice…? Candice says she’ll be the final toast. This all started- Wait, really? Kacy, Kayden, are you really trying to FlipFlop, TikTok whatever it is right now? Just… Anyway, when this first started, Candice did not approve. Dexter’s… strange. Creepy. Maybe even psychotic and deranged. Indi stops Candice there and gets it, no one is perfect and Candice didn’t like him. Just get to the good stuff. Candice says that now, looking back, she realizes Dexter does really love Indi, and that’s all you can ask for. Here’s to #InDex! To InDex!

Indi and Candice hug, and Candice says Johnny’s the tough nut to crack when it comes to acceptance. Indi says Dexter will just have to crack Johnny’s nuts. Umm… Phrasing… But what is the bachelor party like? Candice “just so happens” to have them GPS tagged so they could find out… Oh, then let’s totally do! Indi and Candice excuse themselves under “emergency wedding stuff,” and the rest of the ladies are just fine with that. Wait, who’s paying the bill, then? And yes, what are Gargano and Dexter up to?

 

Carmelo Hayes VS Santos Escobar w/ Legado del Fantasma!

Mr. Breakout 2021 has his golden ticket to whatever title he wants! But while teasing his decision, El Hijo del Fantasma’s many minions took offense that he even mentioned the North American Championship. Will this showdown here tonight help Hayes get that much closer to deciding his target?

The bell rings and Hayes circles with Escobar. They tie up, Escobar powers Hayes to ropes but lets off fast while smirking and shaking his head. Hayes shrugs that off and circles with Escobar again. They tie up, Escobar wrenches to then throw Hayes down for a facelock. Escobar SLAPS Hayes on the back and then offers him a chance to leave without getting hurt. Hayes says no no, they’re finishing this. They tie up, Hayes gets an arm and wrenches through to a wristlock. Escobar reaches for ropes but Hayes keeps him from them.

Hayes snarls as Escobar is on the apron. Slingshot but Escobar slips into the ring! Escobar runs to BLAST Hayes off the apron! Hayes hits the announce desk and Legado laughs at him as we go to break.

NXT returns and Escobar has Hayes down in the ring. Escobar drags Hayes to center to stomp him in the stomach, then has the legs to turn him for a LION TAMER! Hayes endures and tries to get free but Escobar lets off to drop knees into the back. Cover, TWO! Escobar is frustrated so he drops a leg! Escobar gets Hayes up, whips him to a corner and then runs corner to corner. BIG clothesline, and Escobar keeps Hayes up to clothesline again!

Hayes falls out of the ring, Escobar goes out and brings him over to bump off steel steps! Hayes keeps trying but Escobar ROCKS him! Escobar has the legs and turns Hayes on the steps for another BOSTON CRAB!

The ref counts for the ring count, Escobar lets off at 5 of 10 and puts Hayes in at 8. Escobar grins as he gloats, then covers, TWO!

Lopez puts her jacket back on as Hayes drags himself into the ring, PHANTOM DRIVER from Escobar! Cover, Escobar wins!

Winner: Santos Escobar, by pinfall

El Legado is growing into una familia, and now Escobar has a clear path after Swerve. But will Isaiah Scott and Hit Row have something to say about all that?

 

NXT hears from Malcolm Bivens.

“The Creed Brothers are world class athletes, national champions!” Brutus was undefeated and placed number one in the NCAA tournament, and his brother Julius placed in the Olympic Trials in both freestyle and Greco-Roman. “These are the two newest members of Diamond Mine, and you have the opportunity to witness history.” NXT will see these two make their in-ring debuts. #DiamondMineForever. Roderick Strong welcomes them to the team and tells them the real work begins. Will Brutus & Julius follow the creed of Diamond Mine, victory through pressure?

 

Backstage interview with William Regal.

The NXT General Manager has an announcement in regards to the title picture. It has been two weeks since Samoa Joe won the title for a third-time, and he is always going to be a fighting champion. Next week, we find out who the #1 contender will be: Tommaso Ciampa, Kyle O’Reilly, LA Knight and Pete Dunne compete in a FATAL 4 WAY! That is huge, but who comes out proving they are worthy of challenging the Samoan Submission Machine?

 

The Creed Brothers w/ The Diamond Mine VS Chuckie Viola & Paxton Averill!

We know the credentials and the physically imposing figures Brutus & Julius cut as they enter the ring, but now it is time to back up all the talk! Will they make Bivens, Strong and #Hachiman proud with their first match in NXT?

The teams sort out, Brutus starts with Paxton and the two circle. Paxton rushes in but Brutus throws him right down then gets him to a corner. Brutus hits a BIG EuroUpper but Paxton throws hands! Brutus scoops and THROWS Paxton out of the ring! Brutus goes out after Paxton but Chuckie V is in his way. Brutus SHOVES Viola down to get at Paxton! Brutus puts Paxton in, Viola tags in but gets caught for an OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Julius wants in, his brother and him slap each other and that counts!

Viola writhes, clutches a leg, but he still kicks Julius away! Viola throws big forearms but Julius RAMS Viola into a corner! Julius reels Viola in for a HUGE Half Hatch suplex! Julius is fired up and shouts, “I LOVE THIS!” Julius gets Viola up for a clinch and POWERSLAM! Julius sees Paxton reaching out so he THROWS Paxton in! Brutus gets in, he scoops Paxton while Julius scoops Viola. They RAM their opponents into each other, before they SLAM both men down! Julius drags Viola up and shoots in to RUNNING SPINEBUSTER, to BASEMENT LARIAT!! Cover, the Creed Brothers win!

Winners: The Creed Brothers, by pinfall

Brutus leaves Paxton alone, and who knows what he did to Paxton on the outside. Bivens is happy, Strong and Hachiman are proud, but will the Diamond Mine be bringing in a lot of gold soon enough?

 

Backstage interview with Ember Moon.

After that loss to Kay Lee Ray, it just seems things haven’t been going her way lately. More like three months. Lost the tag titles, lost her tag partner, and lost all the matches in between. Ember is getting tired. She knows this happens in everyone’s career, where you have to dig down deep and find that inner self… But KLR woke Ember up. Ember doesn’t want to feel like this anymore. Ember knows what she has to do, so stay tuned and see. Will there be another evolution of the Shenom on the horizon?

 

Hit Row speaks.

Swerve is laughing, actually. He can’t even be mad, because he should’ve seen this coming. From breaking a guitar on Escobar’s back to Hit Row hitting Legado in the parking lot, Swerve should’ve known Escobar would come back with something. Swerve just couldn’t put his finger on it, until it happened. But that’s alright, because Legado is never catching Hit Row slipping again ever. The joke is now on them! Top Dolla finds it funny, since the luchadors said in Espanol an old Mexican saying, he who laughs last, laughs best. Well Hit Row ain’t laughing! There’s a saying from Dolla’s nana, “A hard head makes a soft ass.” So that’s why Dolla draped them all on him like a poncho!

Adonis says that Legado got busted like a $10 piñata, so they should count their blessings. Time to apply some real pressure. And then, the nerve of just adding in some chica to go after the baddest chick! #FACTS. B-Fab tells “Senorita Secret Sauce” that she doesn’t know who she is, but she should know that hitting B-Fab with a pipe is not how to say hello. But when they really meet, B-Fab will make her big mad cuz y’see, they have una problema, they have a problem. And if you didn’t know, NOW you know. Will Lopez comprende after these two throw down?

 

NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships: Io Shirai & Zoey Stark VS Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter!

On one side, two champions work together as a team, nothing more and nothing less. On the other, two friends became a team and are hoping to become even more than just influencers. Will the Genius of the Sky and the #SinCitySoldier make their own highlight reel out of KC Squared? Or will Kacy & Kayden have even more reason to dance and have fun once they get the gold?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see what makes for stronger bonds!

Starting off are Stark and Kacy and the fans rally up. The two circle, feel things out, then Kacy dodges to drop toehold. Stark stays up, Kacy headlocks, but Stark powers up. Kacy thrashes the hold, Stark powers out this time but Kacy dodges again. Stark also dodges, shoves but Kacy handsprings and headscissors! Stark also handsprings and wags her finger. Fans rally up for Shirai and Shirai herself wants in. Stark and Kacy both tag out, Kayden now circles with the former NXT Women’s Champion. They tie up as fans fire up, and Kayden headlocks.

Things keep going, now Shirai handsprings then comes back to headscissor Kayden! Kayden handsprings through and Shirai kips up. Shirai shrugs, she has to give credit to the opponents. But then Stark wants to tag back in and Shirai says no! “I don’t need your help!” Stark sighs, but then Kayden dropkicks Shirai down! Cover, TWO! Kayden clamps onto an arm, Shirai fights up but Kayden grinds her down. Fans rally as Shirai endures, and Kayden even digs an elbow into the shoulder.

Shirai throws body shots but Kacy whips her to a corner. Kacy runs in but Shirai dodges. Shirai blocks Kacy’s boot, wraps the legs around the ropes and then ROCKS Kacy with a forearm. Shirai runs to hit a DRAPING CODE BREAKER! The ref checks on Kacy as she clutches her face, and then Stark tags in. Stark and Shirai argue a little but are in control as NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and Stark keeps Kacy grounded with a motorcycle stretch and knee in the back. Kacy endures, fights up and fans rally and duel. Kacy knees low, throws hands, but Stark knees back. Stark gets Kacy up, scoops but Kacy slips out. Kacy reaches but Stark keeps her from Kayden! Back suplex but Kacy resists, and Kayden tags in! Kacy gets away, Kayden runs in and she BULLDOGS Stark! Shirai jumps in but Kayden ROCKS her first, then sends Stark into her! Kayden runs in to EuroUpper them both! Kayden fires up, runs corner to corner and DROP-SPLASHES the champs! Fans fire up s Kayden goes to the ropes, springboards to wheelbarrow and victory roll, SUPERKICK! Cover, TWO!

Shirai drags Kayden over, pushes her around, then clamps on for another cover. TWO, but Shirai gets a CROSSFACE! Kayden endures, moves around, fans rally and duel and Stark tries to give Shirai advice. Shirai scowls but she maybe takes it as she cranks back. Kayden still endures so Shirai lets her go and pushes her around.

Shirai whips Kayden to ropes, to DECK Kayden with a forearm! Shirai digs a heel into Kayden’s chest, then lets off as the ref counts. Shirai CLUBS Kayden, CLUBS her again, then boots her down.

Kayden lives and Stark is annoyed but she drags her back up to whip back in. Kayden hits Shirai on the way in, then Stark runs in only to miss and hit Shirai!

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

The champions may not be friends, but they’re still a team and still on top! Will there be any stopping them as they- Wait, whoa! Gigi Dolin, Jacy Jayne and… Is Mandy Rose copying Sheamus with that facemask? But anyway, they all CLOBBER KC Squared! Mandy RAMS Kayden into the titantron! Then they all stomp away on Kacy! The Rose and her buds show their thorns once again, are they going to target the tag titles next?

 

Kyle O’Reilly speaks.

“So the last 12 months of my career have been… challenging, to say the least. I mean, you go from the heartbreak of losing championship matches to the turmoil of my best friend stabbing me in the back.” But Kyle looks back to TakeOver 36, and how he closed a chapter in his career and in his life. It was freeing, yeah, not giving a damn anymore. Now he can think and feel and do whatever he wants. It doesn’t matter what it takes, who is footing the bill, or who comes to his birthday parties, because the endgame for Kyle is THE NXT Championship and Samoa Joe. “And it’s not about the physical title that he wears around his waist or whatever. It’s about what that title represents, it’s about being the best!” Kyle got over one obsession at TakeOver. Next week, he gets to begin another.

 

NXT now shares footage of the bachelor party.

Dexter and Gargano are in a limousine together, and somehow Dexter is friends with Odyssey Jones and Drake Maverick. But Gargano is most confused by how that zombie ref from way back when is still here. And where are they going? Who is paying for this, too? Or the wedding! Not gonna be Gargano! Nope! Not one red cent for- Watch out now! Grimes says it’s time to take this party TO~ THE~ MOON~! Jones is fired up, and Maverick tries to be fired up, and Zombie Ref does his best to say, “Moon…!” Gargano asks what Grimes is doing here, but Grimes is handing out hundies! Didn’t Grimes hate Dexter? And wasn’t Dexter terrorizing him for months?!

Grimes says the Million Dollar Man taught him that with enough money, you can solve any problem! So Grimes is using his millions to make sure this bachelor party and the #InDex wedding happen! And for Lumis himself, Grimes offers a truce. Lumis accepts it! Party time, boys! They get to the Go Karts and Grimes declares this the Dexter Lumis Bachelor Party 500 Grand Prix! The top prize is 10 THOUSAND DOLLARS! “Start your engines!” Everyone is fired up but Jones chops Maverick a little hard. And away we go~! Candice and Indi spy from inside an old Volkswagen bug as Gargano does his best to be the first across the finish line! Lumis bumps into Zombie Ref and Gargano takes the win!

And then, they move on to Axecelsior, the ax throwing range! But a quick question, anyone already have experience with an ax? The group looks around, and of course focuses on Lumis. He raises his hand to confirm he has used axes before. The boys take turns, Jones getting on the board but outside of the target. Lumis takes his turn and… BULL’S EYE! Gargano… struggles. Lumis pats Gargano on the shoulder and shows him proper tomahawk throwing technique. It works! Gargano and Lumis have a thumbs up together, and Maverick wants to try the trampolines. Aw, look at that lil’ Rockstar. Grimes best $10,000 that Jones can’t send Maverick to the moon! DEAL!

Maverick is worried as Jones comes jumping in! ODYSSEY POUNCE! Maverick goes flipping and flying, but not quite to the moon. And last but not least, LASER TAG! Team Green VS Team Dex! Or Team Johnny, but fine. GO TIME! Pew pew, tuck ‘n’ roll! Lumis, no, uppercuts aren’t allowed! But Gargano still tags that guy out so he’s not complaining. Jones takes out targets, Lumis chokes out a guy! Another easy one for Johnny. One guy thinks he’s safe, until Lumis brings out the RAG! He’s alive, right? Yeah, just unconscious. And now he’s out! The last guy is flanked by the entire team, so he quits. Fair game, PEW PEW. Total party kill~! Gargano says he’s owed 10 thous.

Gargano high fives everyone, but hesitates to high-five with Lumis. The others can’t believe he’s still not trusting Lumis. Zombie Ref actually talks and says, “He’s not that bad, eh.” Wait, he’s Canadian? But then Jones nudges Gargano and the high-five is complete! Gargano may have lost a son when Austin Theory ran away, but perhaps… He’s found a new son in Lumis? Indi jumps in and is so happy that Lumis finally cracked Johnny’s nut! Huh? Phrasing, Indi. Wait, were the girls spying on them? W-What? No…! But hey! Gargano and Lumis did a high-five! Yeah, they did. Bring it in, family! “Guys. Let’s go have a wedding!” Lumis… SMILES!?

 

Boa meets with Mei Ying.

“It’s time.” Tian Sha is ready to move out, but who will feel the wrath of the immortal empress?

 

Franky Monet talks with Jessi Kamea backstage.

Has Jessi seen the cheesy wedding invitations for the #InDex wedding? Ugh, it’s all anyone can talk about. Bet that wedding dress is gonna be super tacky. Yeah, not even a designer one. Robert Stone walks in and has huge news. Okay, don’t breathe on them, and button up more. Okay, sorry, but listen. He just came from Regal’s office and… #SuitManStone made sure to get this right. Next week, Monet VS Gonzalez… FOR THE TITLE. OMG really?! Next week? Does everyone understand how big this is for their brand? Screw InDex, they’ll be talking about the NEW NXT Women’s Champion! Monet is ready to get that gold, but will Bougie Bad be heartbroken by Big Mami Cool?

 

Mei Ying w/ Boa VS Virginia Ferry!

The dark and fearsome leader of Tian Sha finally steps into the ring herself! Will Ferry not fair very well at all? Or for all that long, either?

The bell rings and Ferry makes the first move, but Mei Ying throat chops her right away! Then wraps on a SLEEPER! Ferry JAWBREAKERS free, but Mei Ying stays up and BOOTS Ferry down! Mei Ying drags Ferry up, shoves her then THROAT CHOPS again! Ferry gasps and sputters as she stands, into Mei Ying’s HANDSPRING FOREARM! Mei Ying isn’t done here, either! She waits for Ferry to stand, choke grips and she just squeezes the life out of Ferry! It’s also a cover, Mei Ying wins!!

Winner: Mei Ying, by pinfall

That could’ve easily been a submission win, too! Will this ferocious, merciless dominance soon make it’s way to the very top of NXT?

 

LA Knight speaks while cruising in his car.

“It’s championship season! Which for me is all year round, so let me talk to you.” By now, we all know about the news, and there’s going to be a #1 contender’s match! Three superstars and one megastar! NXT faithful say, “No, not LA Knight! He’s a jerk~!” Quit the crying and bellyaching because here’s the thing. You’ll be doing a whole lot more crying and aching as Knight smacks around three favorites to become the contender. Then Joe has to look into Knight’s eyes and see that time is up. Who’s game is it? YEAH, L A Knight’s game! “See you soon, Joe.”

 

Tommaso Ciampa speaks.

“Last week, I talked about motivation. How a motivated Ciampa is a scary Ciampa. I was motivated to avenge Toothless Timmy’s injury, motivated to whoop Ridge Holland’s ass, and that’s exactly what I did.” Now, Ciampa’s motivation shifts. He has two goals in the coming match. One is Dunne. Ciampa isn’t blind and he can see who is calling the shots in the group. The game Dunne is playing does not have a pretty ending. If Dunne wants to “slay the dragon,” chop off the head. Two is something that’s been a long time coming. “But the greatest things in life are always worth the waiting for.” That goal… is Goldie. Ciampa storms off, will he get back what he cherishes most?

 

NXT Tag Team Championships: MSK VS Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch!

Nash Carter & Wes Lee went to Mr. Regal and simply wanted things to be fair in the tag division. They knew as well as anyone that the One Two never truly lost these titles and had yet to get their chance. This is that chance, and both Northern Grit and the Bruiserweight want their boys to make this a brutal return to the top. Will Lorcan & Burch take advantage of MSK’s kindness? Or will things stay the way their are: MSK All Night and All Day?

The introductions are made, the belts are raised, and we see which team shines and which team gets shiners!

Carter and Burch start, slowly circle, and fans chant, “Welcome Back!” for the Gov’nah. Burch and Carter feel things out, tie up and go around. Burch puts Carter in a corner but Carter fights back to put Burch in the corner. They go around and around, Burch digs a shoulder in but the ref counts. Burch lets off and the CWC is fired up. The two reset, tie up, and Burch gets an arm for a wristlock. Burch YANKS the arm, wrenches and reels Carter in for a headlock and takeover. Carter fights up but Burch throws palm strikes! Carter still gets to his feet, powers out of the headlock and things speed up.

Burch comes back but Carter goes Matrix. Carter dropkicks legs out then basement dropkicks Burch down! Carter fires up but Burch headbutts low! Tag to Lorcan, and he takes the handoff to wrench Carter’s arm. Oney grinds that arm, wrenches again then ROCKS Carter with a EuroUpper! Back suplex, Carter land son his feet and Lee tags in! MSK fires off on Lorcan, KICK to ENZIGURI to DOUBLE STOMP! Lee covers but Oney scrambles away! Lee still shoots the half, ONE! Lee facelocks to keep Oney down, but Oney fights up. Fans rally and duel, Carter tags in and Lee snapmares for Carter’s slingshot senton! Cover, ONE!

Oney RAMS Carter into the corner, Burch tags in but Carter fights back! Burch CLUBS Carter from behind! Burch gets Carter up to throw EuroUppers! Burch throws more EuroUppers, tags to Oney and they double wrench to a double CHOP! Burch tags back in and he double whips Carter with Oney. Carter ducks, springboards and TORNILLO CROSSBODIES! Direct hit, Carter runs in to uppercut in the corner! Lee tags in, he and Carter coordinate, RAILGUN DROPKICK! Burch bails out and MSK fires up as NXT goes picture in picture.

MSK dares the One Two to come back but they cool off first. Burch finally gets back in, he and Carter circle, and they tie up. They go around, Carter arm-drags Burch down to get a cording hold on the mat. Burch moves around, Carter holds on and wrenches! Burch knees low, throws EuroUppers then whips Carter to a corner. Carter reverses, runs in but only gets buckles! Then Burch LARIATS! Cover, TWO!! Burch seethes as he paces around Carter. Tag to Oney, they mug Carter and Oney EuroUppers Carter down! Oney puts Carter in a corner and CHOPS! Then he reels Carter in to EuroUpper! And whip hard into the corner! Carter bounces off buckles, Burch tags in.

Burch drags Carter up, snap suplexes, then covers. TWO, but Burch keeps on Carter with a chinbar. Burch thrashes Carter around, grinds him down, but Carter endures. NXT returns to single picture, Carter fights up but Burch throws him down! Burch cranks on the chinlock as he bridges, but Carter still endures as fans rally and duel. Carter fights up, throws body shots and elbows, but Burch brings him around! Burch ducks the enziguri, hauls Carter back up and then hits a BIG back suplex! Cover, TWO! Tag to Oney, he keeps between Carter and Lee while egging Carter on. Oney CHOPS Carter, dares him to do something more, so Carter throws hands.

Oney CHOPS and still eggs Carter on! Carter forearms, Oney EuroUppers! Carter fires up and fires off, but Oney knees low! SNAP SUPLEX, to a ground ‘n’ pound! Oney fires up but fans boo as he talks trash to Lee. Oney drags Carter away, tags in Burch and they mug Carter again. Burch ROCKS Carter with a right, tags Oney back in and fans rally up. Carter crawls along ropes but Oney ROCKS him with a EuroUpper! Tag to Burch, they mug and double whip Carter but he holds ropes. Carter sends Oney out, Burch rams low! Burch whips, Carter reverses and JUMP KNEES! Both men are down, Burch grabs at Carter first and keeps him down while going to his own corner.

Hot tags to Oney and Lee! Lee rallies on Oney with big forearms and hammering fists! Burch gets in but Lee BOOTS him out! Lee headbutts, KICKS and shoves Oney to dropkick him to a corner! Lee goes corner to corner to FOREARM SMASH! HEEL KICK! GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, TWO!! Lee gets Oney up, Oney JAWBREAKERS! Lee comes back with a ROBINSON SPECIAL! Tag to Carter, he and Lee coordinate, PUSH-SAULT! Cover, Burch breaks it! Lee rushes in and throws Burch out! Oney bails out on the other end, Lee DIVES to take out Burch! Carter aims at Oney, MOONSAULT from the corner! MSK fires up and the CWC duels harder!

Carter puts Oney in, climbs up top again, SWANTON ONTO KNEES! Oney gets up to KNEE Lee off the apron, then he CHOP BLOCKS Carter’s leg! ANKLE LOCK!! Carter endures as Oney twists his foot! Burch intercepts Lee into a CROSSFACE!! MSK endures dual submissions and the fans are thunderous! Carter rolls to send Oney into Burch! All four men are down and “This is Awesome!” Holland and Dunne aren’t as convinced as they watch ringside. The four men rise and approach. Burch HEADBUTTS Lee, Carter KNEES Burch! Oney CHOPS Carter and then CHOPS him again! CHOP and then run corner to corner for a back elbow! Oney keeps going but Carter HIP TOSSES him into buckles! SUPERKICK for Burch!

Tag to Lee, fans fire up with MSK as they get Oney up, MUST-SEE BLOCKBUSTER!! Cover, MSK wins!!

Winners: MSK, by pinfall (still NXT Tag Team Champions)

Time to put some respect on the names! Carter & Lee prove themselves against the former champions and stand tall as Holland and Dunne look on. Will MSK continue to reign with this level of excitement? As for Dunne and Holland… Holland HEADBUTTS Burch down! Oney doesn’t understand, but then he sees he’s alone. Dunne shrugs and BUZZSAWS Oney down! Dunne stomps away on Oney, then feeds him to Holland’s scoop! ROUNDHOUSE and NORTHERN GRIT!! Fans tell Dunne & Holland “YOU SUCK! YOU SUCK!” but they just shrug it off. But as Oney stirs and Burch checks on him, Holland gets Burch up to DECK him with a hard right!

Dunne and Holland leave it at this, having sent a message: there is no room for failure or weakness in their world. Will everyone get that message soon enough?


My Thoughts:

Another great episode for NXT, and we can only hope and perhaps pray that this isn’t the last great episode. For one, everything in the bachelorette-bachelor skits was great. We got more of that The Way brand “twisted sitcom” humor that also helped give some personality to newer female superstars, Cora Jade and Amari Miller. Plus, we had that great twist with Zombie Ref. But if anything happens to “ruin” the wedding, it needs to be Austin Theory making a return to say HE is the only “son” of The Way. Theory should be angry that no one trusted him about Lumis to start, and in a twist, he isn’t going to go after Lumis but he goes after JOHNNY. Theory VS Johnny, The Way family dysfunction and all that, that’s perhaps the best way “New” NXT can keep this going in a compromise of how this brand was and how Vince is making it be.

KLR VS Ember was a great opener, and while KLR of course wins because she’s making the move to NXT USA, Ember had a very good promo to spin that around to perhaps another new form. I do like that she touched on Shotzi being taken away, that is still a lame move on WWE’s part but whatever. I’m certainly intrigued to see if Ember goes back to full Prophecy of Flame with a twist, or has yet another fresh idea all her own that they’re letting her go with. Escobar VS Hayes was also a great match, but naturally Escobar wins thanks to interference. Lopez being the one was a great little twist on that, though. And Hit Row has a good promo, and I look forward to Lopez VS B-Fab.

The Women’s Tag Team Championship match was great stuff, with KC Squared showing off some great moves overall, and there was good dysfunction character work with Shirai and Stark. The champs retain because they’re going to keep being tested just on the level of how well they can stick together as a team. Mandy leading Gigi and Jacy in beating down KC Squared was a pretty good surprise, but that mask Mandy is wearing looks really doofy compared to Sheamus’ mask. And Monet getting her title shot next week is of course to make the makeover episode of NXT big, so that (at least for now) the only change to NXT will be cosmetic.

Mei Ying won obviously, but I don’t think the fans really cared that much. Maybe like me, they were all hoping she was going to get in the ring way sooner, but now without Xia Li, it just isn’t as good. Sometimes you can have too slow of a slow burn, and this is probably that. Meanwhile, Diamond Mine is finally speeding things up. They should’ve done more with Tyler Rust, and unfortunately Arturo Ruas and Marina Shafir were cut before they could join up, but the Creed Brothers definitely defied my expectations. They’ve got the fire and charisma but also the deadpan angry faces to fit right in with Roddy Strong in that team, Diamond Mine can still be something.

We got great news about the NXT title #1 contenders match, and we got good promos from O’Reilly, Knight and Ciampa. But with the stare downs between Joe and Dunne we’ve gotten a few times, that has to be the match we get. Especially with how things went in the main event. MSK VS Oney & Burch was great stuff, and while I figured MSK was going to win, I did not see Oney & Burch being kicked out of Dunne’s group so soon. So much for WarGames with those four and any other four. But at the same time, this puts Dunne & Holland on this higher level of being Heels that I certainly feel Holland needed for himself. Dunne can go after Joe, Holland can go after the winner of Escobar VS Swerve, those two can become a British version of the Two Man Power Trip if “new” NXT sees it that way.

My Score: 9/10

Just last night on Rampage, The Spanish God called out the Don Callis Family, and then got jumped by the Don Callis Family! Callis and the rest of the family has been banned from ringside, as has Chris Jericho, this must be settled between Sammy and Hobbs!

Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away.

The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first!

Sammy is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up. Dax headlocks, Shane powers up and out, but Dax RAMS him! Shane says not today! Dax runs again, RAMS again, but Shane stays up. Dax RAMS Shane again, and again, but Shane scoops! Dax slips free, waistlocks, but Shane bucks the O’Conner. Dax ducks ‘n’ dodges, but stays back to avoid hands.

The fans fire up as Dax and Shane reset, tie up, and Dax headlocks. Shane powers up and out, Dax SHOTGUNS him! Shane comes back but Dax avoids the senton! Dax wrenches, but Shane LARIATS! Shane drags Dax up, tags Lee, and STP mugs Dax. Lee throws knees, snapmares Dax and basement dropkicks! Lee drags Dax up, ROCKS hi, but Dax puts him in a corner to CHOP! And CHOP! Dax brings Lee around, wrenches, but Lee ROCKS Dax! And CHOPS him! Dax CHOPS again! And again! Lee swings, Dax ducks and picks Lee up, but Shane tags in before the atomic drop! Lee hobbles away, Dax ROCKS Shane!

Dax runs up to whip Lee but Lee reverses. Dax rebounds off buckles to CLOBBER Lee, but Shane CLOBBERS Dax! Cover, TWO! Dax survives, Shane talks trash on Cash, and Collision goes picture in picture.

Shane drags Dax up, puts him in a corner, then winds up to CHOP! Dax sputters and Shane talks more trash. Shane stands Dax up, winds up, and CHOPS again! Shane keeps Dax in the corner, whips him corner to corner hard, and Dax falls back! Shane talks more trash to Cash but the ref keeps Cash back. Shane tags Lee, STP mugs Dax and Lee puts Dax in a corner. Lee fires forearms, then climbs up to rain down fists! Lee gloats but Dax CHOPS from below! Lee stomps but Dax CHOPS! They clinch, go around, and end up on ropes. Shane tags in, he throws hands on Dax! Shane scoops and SLAMS Dax, then stares Cash down while Collision goes to break.

The Rock has a message!

“Oh, I know, everybody wants to know what’s happening down in Perth, Australia. It’s gonna be this weekend, right? Is that right? Yeah, The Rock knows when it’s happening, y’know why? Because they kept asking The Rock, ‘Rock, will you go down to Perth? Will ya come down to Perth, Australia?’ Listen, The Rock can’t be there in Perth, he wishes he could be there in Perth, he’s gonna be there in spirit and that’s all that matters. The People’s Champ’s spirit is gonna be there in Perth. But here’s who else is gonna be there in Perth: Grayson Waller, doing the Waller Effect. It’s that show, it’s a big show.

“It’s a big show here in the states, and it’s an even bigger show down there in Australia? Y’know why? Y’know why, Dumbo? Because Australia is his country, it’s his home country, the people are gonna go crazy for him. But here’s what’s happening. Here’s the BS that’s happening now down in Australia. Cody Rhodes and his little girlfriend, Seth Rollins, are gonna go on the Waller Effect. Here’s the thing, I need you, and you, and this goof holding the camera and this one holding the microphone over here, I need all of you guys to make sure that Perth knows this some BS happening.

“And if those guys, meaning Cody and his little girlfriend, Seth, if they start talking trash, let The Rock know. Tell The Rock. Because here’s what’s gonna happen: The Rock is gonna slap the piss out of both of them, just like that. As a matter of fact, if those two talk trash, The Rock will fly down there to Perth before that interview is over and he’ll do it. Don’t wonder why The Rock can make it that quick, The Rock makes magic happen. Do you understand? All right, that’s all The Rock has to say about Perth. Perth, Australia, get ready because the WWE is coming. Let The Rock know if those two jabronies talk trash. IF YA SA-MELLLL~… what The Rock… is cooking.”

They coordinate, Asuka whips Candice in but Candice uses that to BLAST Kairi down! Candice BOOTS Asuka, slips under her, and reaches out! Asuka grabs Candice’s foot to drag her back! But Candice ENZIGIRIS free, hot tag to Indi! The fans go wild as Indi rallies on the Kabuki Warriors! LARIAT after LARIAT, and then she brings them together, for a meeting of the minds!

Austin Theory is here?

“The 150 Million Hit Man” is in the ring on the set of the Grayson Waller Effect and he welcomes us to Austin Theory Live. The fans boo but Theory says, “G’day, mate!” He wants to talk to Australia about vegemite. It’s DISGUSTING! But that’s just a snack here, right? So then he had a real Australian meal. He had himself a Blooming Onion from Outback Steakhouse! Oh, they don’t like that? Well alright. Then he’ll introduce to us the Moment Maker, the Aussie Icon, Australia’s own, his boy, Grayson Waller! The fans cheer Waller as he makes his entrance, and he sees UFC fighter, Tai Tuivasa, in the crowd.

Waller walks up, they shake hands, and they both get the golden shoes for the Shoey! The fans cheer as Tai chugs it all down, then Waller joins Theory in the ring. Waller takes the mic to welcome us to the Grayson Waller Effect. The fans cheer, and Waller says this might be the greatest day of his life! And he wants us to do one thing before the greatest GWE of all time. “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” “Aussie!” “Oi!” “Aussie!” “Oi!” “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” The fans cheer and Waller says time to get to it. The biggest story in sports entertainment involve his two guests tonight.

First, the World Heavyweight Champion, Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! The fans cheer and sing along as the Visionary makes his entrance, wearing a suit that is purposefully baggy, and also has cords on it. Rollins revels in the singing, which bores Theory, but then Rollins takes a bow. Waller says his second guest is the winner of the 2024 Royal Rumble, “the man who can thank the ineffectiveness of the American education system for not being able to finish a story,” The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes! Cody makes his entrance in a normal suit, and now fans sing with Cody’s song, “WHOA~ OH~!” Cody gets an extra big pyro as he gets in the ring!

Cody and Rollins sit with Waller while the fans chant for Cody. Cody asks Perth, “What do we wanna talk about?” Waller says hold on, this is his show. What HE wants to talk about is to acknowledge their Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. The Tribal Chief appreciates that. But Rollins, Waller doesn’t care about who wins the Chamber, he wants to know who Rollins wants to face. Oh, well, the Chamber is stacked, who knows who wins, but he has a scoop. Oh? Here we go! Yeah, Rollins has an inside track, some secret info. Does Perth wanna know a secret? “YES!” Alright, then. Rollins… is just days away from being medically cleared to compete!

The fans like the sound of that! Rollins says whoever wins the Chamber will get a crack at Rollins’ World Heavyweight Champion. And newsflash: they don’t stand a chance. Because it’s WrestleMania 40, the biggest Mania of all time! The world is gonna sing Rollins’ song, “WHOA~ OHH~ OHHH~!” and Rollins will do what only Rollins can, put on a show like nobody else! Because he is a Visionary, he is a Revolutionary, he is SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! Big pop. Rollins sits back down and Waller says cool story, bro.

Now, Cody, we had the opportunity to have the biggest Mania main event of all time: Roman Reigns VS The Rock. The fans boo and Rollins sticks out his tongue. Waller asks if Cody was being selfish taking that away from the fans. The fans chant “Rocky Sucks! Rocky Sucks!” Cody doesn’t want it twisted, he is a fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. And if The Rock were here, The Rock would probably call Cody a candy ass, prattle on about rooty poo, insult Cody. What is it he calls Cody’s fans again? Waller knows, it’s Cody Crybabies. Theory claps and Cody says yes, Cody Crybabies.

But Cody wants to ask Perth: Are there any Cody Crybabies in here tonight? The fans cheer and Cody wants to double check, the pyro got to his hearing. Are there any Cody Crybabies in here tonight? The fans cheer even louder! Rollins says yes, seems there are. The fans chant for Cody again, and Cody says one thing The Rock wouldn’t wanna talk about is the conversation that led them to this point, why Cody was going to step away from that WrestleMania main event just to step right back in. Waller says hold on, he’s talking about The People’s Champion! Cody does what he’s told. Oh, People’s Champion?

That is a grand and lofty title, one you can’t self-appoint. Maybe at one point, The Rock was The People’s Champ. But to Cody, to be the People’s Champ, you have to actually be around the people! The fans cheer that, and Cody says that while Seth had an announcement, here’s one from Cody. Cody tells The Rock that he indeed slapped Cody across the face. And at WrestleMania 40, Cody faces Roman in the main event. But until then, the card is wide open! So let’s make it official! Cody wants The Rock 1v1, any time, any place!! The fans fire up for that and Rollins stands up to stand with Cody. Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!”

Rollins tells Cody and Perth, let’s cut the head off the snake once and for all! Rollins admires that challenge, but when it comes to The Bloodline, we all know that there is no such thing as 1v1. So if and when The Rock decides to take Cody up on this challenge, just know that Cody won’t be fighting that battle alone. Waller says there you have it! Another scoop on the Grayson Waller Effect, the greatest talk show in WWE! Theory says hold on there. Cody thinks he’s gonna face The Rock? Is that what you think? IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK! Rollins laughs at Theory’s pretty decent Rock imitation.

Yeah, it was good, but here’s more. Finally…! Austin Theory has come to Perth, Australia, to finish his story. Rollins laughs more and says this is good. But hey, does he have the big one? Y’know, the one. Jacket off, show ’em what it’s all about. Theory takes his jacket off, “IF YA SMELLLLL-” Rollins THROWS Theory into the Waller sign! CODY CUTTER! Waller is stunned as Theory is down and out! Waller says okay, fine, and he backs off. Rollins lines up the shot, to CURB STOMP Theory! The Visionary and the American Nightmare show they make a powerful combo, will they be just what the WWE Universe needs to finally The Bloodline’s tyranny?

 

World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber Match: Randy Orton VS Drew McIntyre VS LA Knight VS Bobby Lashley VS Kevin Owens VS Logan Paul!

As the Visionary just said, he is 100% and ready for whoever comes out of this match! The Viper, the Scottish Terminator, the Mega Star, the All Mighty, the Prizefighter and the Maverick are just as ready, but who proves they are worthy by making it through the Chamber?

Kevin Owens makes his entrance first, followed by Lashley, Logan, and Orton! That leaves Drew McIntyre and LA Knight to start things off in a rematch from just last night on SmackDown.

That was the biggest Riptide ever, and it washes Nia away! With this win, Rhea not only proves she’s the most dominant woman in WWE, but she proves everything she’s done to get here was worth it! Mami gets her pyro and celebrates with her family, but will she have an even bigger moment at WrestleMania 40 facing down The Man?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Elimination Chamber with basically nothing bad to say. Great promo from The Rock that was featured in the Kickoff show, and great Grayson Waller Effect segment for Cody & Rollins to respond. Great beat down of Theory, too, that was fun. Really good Women’s Tag Team Championship match for the Kickoff, though it was clear The Kabuki Warriors were retaining. Indi at least got to perform in her home country, but I don’t feel she and Candice circle back to the titles in time for Mania. Another team probably steps up, or maybe multiple teams, and they’re the ones that face Asuka & Kairi.

Speaking of tag titles, awesome match from Priest & Finn VS “New Catch Republic.” That had some real NXT TakeOver vibes with the near falls and false finishes, but I figured Judgment Day was returning. Given the story with R-Truth, it just seems more fitting that The Awesome Truth steps up and wins big at Mania. And in case you missed it, Truth went to Austria instead of Australia, because he is a comedic genius. I am going to love all the shenanigans and misunderstands Truth has once he and Miz are the Undisputed Tag Team Champions.

Awesome stuff out of both Chamber matches tonight, though WWE always does pretty good with these in my experience. And even though it seemed a bit obvious to me that Becky and Drew were each running the gauntlet in the Chamber, I feel they did a better job disguising things in Drew winning than Becky. Tiffany eliminating Naomi was a good move, as she and Naomi can feud. Tiffany is new to main roster, Naomi has returned to WWE, a feud can help RawDown fans learn/relearn who they are while we get great acrobatic matches out of them. Liv and Bianca being in the final three with Becky also worked, they all have stories involving Rhea, a return to Mania, or both.

As for what Bianca does now without a clear path to Mania, I’m thinking she could get in on that tag title story. She has beef with DMG CTRL, and if Dakota really is on Bayley’s side, maybe Dakota and Bianca can be a team? Not saying they’d win, there’s a chance DMG CTRL makes everyone think Dakota’s still on their side, and that helps DMG CTRL retain, but it’d be good story. And in the Men’s Chamber, I did not expect Styles to screw Knight over like that, and I did not expect Logan to screw over Orton like that. Kevin was great wanting after Logan so badly, and I don’t think their story is over yet, but maybe they add Orton to the mix? A Triple Threat protects all three so that Logan can lose the belt while someone else takes the pin, or Logan is opportunistic and steals a pin to retain.

And of course, an awesome main event. Rhea of course won out but she and Nia did great, really made Rhea look like the underdog champ that then overcame her toughest challenge, and now she’s rolling towards that match with Becky. Both have done so well that Mami VS The Man could go either way, and I wouldn’t be surprised either way. They’re both worthy of the top title, so it really depends on who is set up for the Women’s World Championship for after Mania. Maybe Jade Cargill? That’d be quite the moment on whatever night of Mania to have Jade walk out there and confront the champion and set things up for Backlash in France.

My Score: 9/10
