Wild Boar & Mark Andrews VS Symbiosis w/ Eddie Dennis!

Made enemies by the manipulative headmaster, but now united against against him, Boar and Andrews have a Cardiff connection! Will it help them get one step closer to the wily Welsh Dragon? Or will Tyson T-Bone and Primate play the perfect pawns in keeping them away?

Speaking of which, Dennis hides behind his henchmen, but Andrews and Boar just go after them all! Dennis scurries out of the ring while Andrews fires off on Primate and Boar throws hands on T-Bone! Things spill to the outside, the brawl continues, Primate shoves Andrews away then rushes in, only to get sent into barriers! Boar ROCKS T-Bone, then spots Dennis. Dennis runs to the backstage, T-Bone goes after Boar so Boar goes after him. Boar puts T-Bone in for Andrews. The bell rings, Andrews goes after T-Bone but T-Bone puts him in a corner. T-Bone runs in but only gets buckles! Andrews puts a leg on the ropes, then gives it a Tiger Feint Kick!

Andrews ENZIGURIS T-Bone, then hits a DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! T-Bone staggers away, but Andrews steps in to springboard dropkick the leg! Andrews keeps moving, but T-Bone catches the crossbody. T-Bone uses a FALL AWAY SLAM, but Andrews lands on his feet! Andrews dropkicks T-Bone again, and T-Bone staggers to the corner. Primate tags in and Dennis has returned to ringside, but Andrews dodges Primate to PELE! Andrews then clotheslines in the corner, tag to Boar. Fans rally, Boar wrenches and rams shoulders with Primate again and again! Fans fire up as Primate drops and Boar rains down on him!

Dennis protests but shuts up as Boar glares at him. Fans chant, “Shut Up, Eddie!” at Dennis, and Boar scoops Primate to SLAM him down! Tag to Andrews, and they coordinate, wheelbarrow SENTON, and then a regular SENTON! Cover, TWO! Andrews keeps on Primate with EuroUppers but Primate hits back. Tag to T-Bone, T-Bone runs into a basement dropkick! Andrews runs, tilt-o-whirls, but T-Bone blocks! T-Bone swings Andrews around for a FALL AWAY SLAM! Andrews couldn’t land safe outta that one, but he gets to ropes. T-Bone brings Andrews up to CLUB him! Tag to Primate and T-Bone holds Andrews out on the ropes, DRAPING AX HANDLE!

Primate roars at Boar while Andrews wobbles. Primate shoves, CLUBS and back suplexes! Cover, ONE! Fans rally for Andrews and Boar, but Primate stays between them. Primate CLUBS Andrews down, then drags Andrews over to the corner. He smacks Andrews off buckles, tags T-Bone, and Symbiosis double whips Andrews backwards into buckles, then throw him down for a DOUBLE STOMP! Dennis is pleased with his pack and T-Bone looms over Andrews. T-Bone stomps Andrews, CLUBS him, then drags him up to a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! T-Bone talks trash to Boar and the ref keeps him back, but Andrews fires off CHOP after CHOP!

T-Bone shoves Andrews, pops him up and FLAPJACKS! Andrews flounders on the mat but T-Bone covers, TWO! T-Bone sucker punches Boar! Tag to Primate, but Andrews avoids the ax handles! Andrews ROCKS Primate from the apron, ENZIGURIS T-Bone, then slides under Primate! Andrews hurries but Primate gets a foot! Andrews hops up, misses the enziguri as Primate ducks, but avoids Primate’s elbow drop! Hot tag to Boar! Fans fire up as Boar rallies on Primate, then CLOBBERS T-Bone! Primate run sin to whip but Boar reverses. Sunset flip but Boar rolls through, SEATED SENTON! Boar gets Primate back up, wrench and hammerlock, PEPSI TWIST!

T-Bone runs in as Boar covers, but Boar moves and the elbow drop hits Primate! Boar RAMS T-Bone outta the ring! Dennis checks on T-Bone but Boar sends Primate out, too! Boar is on the apron as Symbiosis regroups, CANNON-BOAR onto T-Bone! Dennis got himself and Primate clear, but Boar puts Primate in. Fans rally up, Boar runs corner to corner and he RAMS into Primate! Then HALF NELSON SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Primate survives but Boar is watching him. Primate gets to a corner, but Dennis has that dog collar! Boar runs him off, but turns around into a SPEAR from Primate! Primate BOOTS Andrews, hot tag to T-Bone!

Symbiosis coordinates, T-Bone scoops Boar while Primate climbs. But Boar slips off and shoves T-Bone into Primate! GERMAN SUPLEX for T-Bone! Fans fire up with Boar and he aims at a wobbly T-Bone! SPEAR into a corner! Then corner to corner for the CANNON-BOAR! Tag to Andrews and he goes right up, so he can FALL TO PIECES! Cover, Andrews & Boar win!

Winners: Wild Boar & Mark Andrews, by pinfall

Boar then DIVES onto Dennis! Boar rains down fists, Dennis scrambles away, but now Boar has that collar! They go around the back of the crowd, spill back to ringside, and then right back out! Dennis makes it backstage, but will Boar be the one putting a muzzle on him?

 

Robert Stone speaks.

“By now, you’ve heard the rumors, you’ve heard the whispers. And Mr. Stone is here to tell ya, they’re true. Von Wagner is here in NXT UK, and tonight, Saxon Huxley, you’re gonna find out why he is like no other athlete. And you’re also gonna find out why this is Von Wagner’s World, and you’re just living in it.” But will Wagner end up entering the Astral Plane with the wild and wooly Divine Beast?

 

NXT Media catches up to Moustache Mountain.

They pull up to the BT Sports Studio to park in their reserved spot, and the reporter asks Trent Seven & Tyler Bate about their tag title victory’s “nefarious means.” Bate is inclined to agree with that assessment, just from looking at the footage. Seven says they did talk about it, it’s water under the bridge, we’re moving on. It’s not cheating unless you get caught. Ha! Well, okay, technicalities. But a win is a win is a win, yeah? They will hold onto the NXT UK Tag Team Championships at any cost.

But now it is time that Sir Johnny Saint and Mr. Sidney Scala go get their heads together to find some reputable competition so Moustache Mountain can defend their titles. They move on, but will Seven regret being so cheeky as champion?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Sid Scala.

They ask about tonight’s contract signing, and Sid says it is huge. Perhaps one of the biggest in brand history. But Dennis runs through the hall. Dennis wants Sid to do something about this! Didn’t he see Boar out there? Boar’s a danger to Dennis and everyone else! Sid has a solution. Dennis VS Boar, with Symbiosis banned from ringside. And one other thing: to make sure Dennis competes, it will be in a DOG COLLAR MATCH! Dennis is freaking out, but then Boar catches up to him! Dennis goes off running, Boar gives chase, and Sid has to go chase them both! Will Boar be able to control himself as he waits for his grudge match?

 

Xia Brookside w/ Eliza Alexander VS Angel Hayze!

Daddy’s Girl got herself a new friend, and her friend downright “battered” her opponent a couple weeks ago. In fact, it was Angel Hayze! Will Xia “batter” Angel just like #LizzyEvo did? Or will Hayze turn things around on Xia and give her a good battering?

The bell rings, fans taunt Xia and Lizzy, but Lizzy helps Xia tune it out. Xia and Hayze circle, Xia tells fans to shut up with the “Xia Sucks!” Xia and Hayze tie up, they go around, and Xia shoves Hayze away. Hayze shrugs that off and circles with Xia again. They tie up, Xia gets an arm, wrenches and YANKS the arm. Xia grinds the shoulder, YANKS the arm and twists the wrist. Hayze fights up, rolls, and wrenches to a wristlock back. Xia works on the hold, wrenches back to twist Hayze’s wrist, but Hayze rolls, kips up and wrenches back. Xia stomps Hayze’s foot, then wrenches to another wristlock.

Hayze uses ropes to flip through and WRING Xia out! Fans cheer but Xia is upset. Xia kicks her way up, pulls Hayze’s hair and puts her on the ropes. The ref counts, Xia lets off then KNEES Hayze low. Fans boo but Xia brings Hayze up to whip. Hayze goes up and over and eggs Xia on, to then kick low and HEEL KICK down! Hayze runs, and dropkicks Xia off her feet! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up and Hayze runs in at the corner. Xia BOOTS her down, then shrieks as she stomps Hayze. Eliza cheers Xia on while fans jeer, “You Suck!” Xia puts Hayze in the corner, wraps the arms around ropes and pulls!

The ref reprimands, Xia lets off and then she CLUBS Hayze. Fans sing, “Shame on Xia! Always cheating!” but Xia puts Hayze on ropes to CHOKE her! The ref counts, Xia lets off to then stomp Hayze down. Xia holds ropes as she stomps away on Hayze but the ref counts. Xia lets off at 4 and tells the ref to leave her alone. Xia drags Hayze up to hip drop her, then clamp on a CAMEL CLUTCH! Hayze endures as Xia sits deep on the hold. Hayze endures, fights free and fans rally. Xia elbows Hayze down then puts the Camel Clutch on again! Hayze endures, Xia thrashes her around, but Hayze fights up.

Hayze throws elbows, Xia CLUBS her, but Hayze still throws hands. Hayze shoves Xia away, then dodges to wrench an arm. Hayze throws forearms and elbows and she DECKS Xia! Xia gets up but Hayze CLOBBERS her! Fans rally, Hayze runs in to back body block! Hayze keeps moving, SLINGBLADE! Cover, TWO! Eliza is relieved but Hayze keeps her focus. Hayze aims from a corner and fans rally, SUPER- NO! Xia blocks, spins Hayze, but Hayze switches! O’Conner Roll, TWO! Eliza is there but Hayze DECKS her! Xia rolls Hayze and high stacks, Xia win!

Winner: Xia Brookside, by pinfall

It wasn’t a battering, but it was a win. Give the assist to Lizzy, though, who also goes after Hayze! They’re sore winners, but here comes AMALE! The French Hope runs off Xia and Eliza, but will she teach these bullies a lesson soon enough?

 

A-Kid goes to talk to Charlie Dempsey.

He wants to take advantage of Die Familie not being around. AK tells Dempsey that he, or perhaps they both, need a rematch. They need to set the record straight, and there’s something about Dempsey’s heritage that will make him say yes. Dempsey simply nods, will he and the Spanish Sensation have a clean second round?

 

Sid Scala speaks.

“NXT UK Universe, it is my pleasure to introduce the newest acquisition to our brand. He is a Pan-American Games Freestyle Greco Champion, a Freestyle National Champion, and a Division I National Qualifier at the University of Minnesota. Damon Kemp, welcome to NXT UK.” Kemp says hello and that it is an honor to be here in NXT UK. He is excited to learn about that nitty, gritty British style. Glad to hear that. They have a master of that style to help Kemp get settled. In comes Johnny Saint! Saint shakes Kemp’s hand and welcomes him aboard. Will Kemp learn much from the icons of the UK and become a technical master?

 

Von Wagner VS Saxon Huxley!

Among the many NXT USA stars visiting the UK is the Robert Stone Brand’s leading man! But Von already felt his star power was above signing autographs and taking pictures with fans, to the point that he even interrupted Saxon’s own signings. Will the “big stupid man” learn some humility? Or will NXT UK soon be part of Wagner’s World?

The bell rings and the two tie up right away. Von powers Saxon to ropes but the ref counts. Saxon shoves Von back but Von ROCKS Saxon. Saxon throws hands in return, but Von knees low! Von shoves, rams shoulders, but neither falls! They ram shoulders again, and again! Saxon rebounds to ram Von again, then he dodges, ducks and FLYING SHOULDER TACKLES! Saxon knees Von against ropes, whips and knees him again. Saxon whips, Von reverses, Saxon ducks but Von hits a FLYING KNEE! Von drops elbows on Saxon, headbutts him, then drops more elbows! Fans boo but Von drags Saxon up to BUTTERFLY SUPLEX!

Von roars and Saxon gets to a corner. Von storms over to throw point blank clotheslines and RAM his shoulder in. Von throws elbows, and reels Saxon in with a short arm LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Von runs to drop ax handles! Von clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Saxon down. Fans rally for “UK! UK!” as Saxon fights up. Saxon throws body shots but Von knees and CLUBS him down. Von clamps the chinlock back on but Saxon fights and claws at the hold. Fans rally, Saxon fight sup, and Saxon backs Von into buckles! Saxon is free, and he BOOTS Von! Saxon runs in to SPLASH, then he runs to LARIAT!

Von stays up so Saxon keeps hitting LARIAT after LARIAT! Von falls down, Saxon drops an elbow! Fans fire up with Saxon and he clotheslines Von in the corner! Saxon shoves Von away and goes up the corner. Von stands, for a FLYING LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Saxon stays fired up, and he scoops, but Von slips out! Von CLUBS Saxon on the back, CLUBS him in the chest, and with Saxon on his knees, Von runs, but into a THESZ PRESS! Fans fire up again and Saxon brings Von around to a fireman’s carry. Von fights free with elbows, then he whips Saxon. Saxon holds ropes and elbows back!

Saxon runs, but into a scoop! Pop-up to the fireman’s carry and DEATH VALLEY NECKBREAKER! Cover, Von wins!

Winner: Von Wagner, by pinfall

The Robert Stone Brand’s main man continues to win! Von gets a mic to tell Saxon, “You’re just the first man to fall. None of you have ever seen anything like me before. This is Von Wagner’s World, and you’re just living in it.” Will Wagner be unstoppable in his conquest of all things NXT?

 

Gallus holds a press conference.

Tensions are running high, and just from how they’re seated with Wolfgang in the middle, the Coffey Brothers are clearly still at odds. Wolfgang asks the flash photography to settle down. Wolfgang then welcomes everyone to this press conference and thanks them for coming. Today, Wolfgang puts the record straight. There have been many people online questioning Gallus. Wolfgang says Gallus is united, together and stronger than ever. Mark Coffey says Gallus is fine. Arguments between himself, Joe, and Wolfgang happen, it’s just what you see in every sport around the world. The difference is, cameras happened to catch this one. They were just having a bad day.

Joe says these things are just what happens, even in this group. They push each other. Mark and Joe are brothers, Wolfgang is like a brother. It’s always the belief of this team that Gallus Boys are on top. Joe, or rather all of Gallus, is not hungry. Gallus is starving for success. And that is what will happen. They do the triple handshake and pose for photos. Cheers, thanks for coming, they’ll be heading out. But is all this the truth? Is Gallus perfectly fine?

 

NXT UK welcomes a new star!

The masked man haunting, or rather hunting, Kenny Williams last week is known as Tiger Turan, aka Double T, hailing from the Himalayas, and he is making his in-ring debut next week!

 

NXT UK hears from Isla Dawn and Meiko Satomura.

The Wicked Witch says, “We have been living under Meiko Satomura’s rules for too long. But she is about to enter MY world.” The Final Boss says Isla’s mist was a big mistake. She is reaching her boiling point. Isla says this has been building to this one moment! Meiko says it ends in the World of Darkness! Isla says the darkness will smother Meiko, but Meiko says Isla is in for her hardest match yet. Isla says Meiko can scratch and claw all she wants. Meiko reminds Isla that Isla lost once before. Now Meiko is going to hunt Isla down. Isla vows to finally take the title, and asks if Meiko is afraid of the dark. Just what will we see once NXT UK enters the World of Darkness?

 

Lash Legend speaks.

“You okay, but you ain’t Lash Legend, okay?” She’s the one and only Lash Legend, emphasis on “legend.” And next week, she’s making her Supernova Sessions debut! What will Noam Dar have for his fellow talk show host in her first NXT UK appearance?

 

Sid Scala and Johnny Saint are in the ring.

Sid has the fans welcome the living legend and NXT UK General Manager, and fans cheer for “Johnny! Johnny!” Sid then says they’re here for a very special reason, and cause for celebration. For in two weeks, it will be NXT UK’s 200TH EPISODE!! And tonight, they sign the contract for that episode’s main event. It will be a rematch for THE NXT UK Championship. First the challenger, Jordan Devlin! The Irish Ace makes his way out and fans boo. Devlin takes a seat, and then Sid welcomes the champion, Ilja Dragunov! Fans cheer as their Czar of Unbesiegbar makes his way out with brand new music and a sharp suit.

Dragunov still conducts the music and the NXT UK fans, then he shakes hands with Saint and Sid before sitting down. Fans chant “UN BE SIEG BAR!” and Sid says it is time to sign. Devlin whistles, and then says someone should close a window. He hears the winds of change blowing through. Dragunov says to get his feet off the table and hold on about winds. Dragunov holds the title, he fought and suffered to make this brand strong. As for Devlin, he just belittles it with his attitude. Oh, he belittles the brand, does he? Devlin IS this brand. Don’t kid yourself, Dragunov, this brand is on Devlin’s back! Just open your eyes and shut your mouths!

Devlin wants Dragunov to look around at what’s causing this. Dragunov defended the title before without any of this. This signing, Sid and Saint, the camera and fans, they’re all here because of the big money match with Devlin, the Irish Ace! Oh, really? In fact, this title made Dragunov the person he is, and the title is defined by the man Dragunov is. Dragunov’s worst nightmare is to see someone like Devlin have the title. He will make sure to do everything he can to make sure that doesn’t happen. Devlin wants Dragunov to wrap his head around this: NXT UK Episode 200, Devlin IS walking out the NXT UK Champion and make Dragunov live that nightmare.

Dragunov says okay then. If Devlin is so confident, what if they raised the stakes again? Fans like the sound of that. They chant, “He Won’t Do It!” Devlin says he’s a gambling man and will hear Dragunov out. Dragunov says Devlin was right. If Devlin wins, he is champion. But Dragunov has a dream of an NXT UK without Devlin. So Dragunov’s stipulation is that the winner will not only be the champion, but the loser will LEAVE NXT UK! Fans chant, “Bye Bye, Devlin!” Devlin says when he takes the title, Dragunov won’t wanna show his face around here anyway. Challenge accepted! Sid and Saint talk it over real quick, and Sid makes it official! NXT UK title or bust!

Dragunov signs his part of the contract, and then passes it over to Devlin. After a moment of hesitation, Devlin signs his part. And so it is decided! Episode 200’s main event, Dragunov VS Devlin, for the NXT UK Championship! Both men stand, Dragunov holds up the title, but he avoids the sucker headbutt to give a headbutt! Dragunov then fires off forearms and knees, and then tosses the armchairs aside! Devlin gets up, he and Dragunov fire forearms! Devlin kicks low, gets Dragunov up, but Dragunov slips off the bomb to ENZIGURI! Dragunov then flips the table over and folds it up to prop in a corner! Fans fire up, Sid wants them to wait for Episode 200!

Dragunov throws Devlin towards the table, then aims from a corner! “UN! BE! SIEG!” But Devlin uses Sid as a shield!! Dragunov can’t attack the Assistant GM, and Devlin HEADBUTTS him after all! Devlin then uses DEVLINSIDE to send Dragunov through the table!! Fans boo but Devlin holds the belt up. Will Devlin sail into the future with those winds of change? Or will Dragunov banish him to NXT USA?


My Thoughts:

A great episode, and some great stuff as we head for episode 200. Very good opener with that tag match, and I figured Boar & Andrews would win. And I also felt that Dog Collar Match was coming, so they did a great job setting it up with the chase and the backstage promo. That could go either way, but as I don’t see Dennis moving on to a title scene, I bet Boar wins. And of titles, it’d probably be the Heritage Cup anyway. Dar having a talk show segment with Lash will be an interesting segment, surely to set up Lash’s NXT UK feud. Maybe Millie McKenzie since she’s number 2 Face? Great promo vignette out of Meiko and Isla, but still no explanation of what World of Darkness even entails. Can’t wait to see how that goes next week.

Good promo from Moustache Mountain, and them wanting new challengers already could be what bites them in the butt. No idea who it’ll be, though, with Pretty Deadly having moved to NXT USA. Maybe Gallus? Gallus had a good press conference promo, and I hope the Coffey Brothers try to have a match with Moustache Mountain and then one or both teams have the dysfunction throw things off. A little surprised A-Kid was still here to have an interaction with Dempsey, but maybe AK’s move to NXT USA isn’t happening now that Frazer is over there. And AK alluding to Dempsey’s “heritage,” I realize now is all a reference to Dempsey being William Regal’s son.

A good match from Xia and Hayze, and of course Xia gets a cheating win with Eliza’s help. Amale making the save also makes sense. I think we’ll be getting Xia & Eliza VS Hayze & Amale, then we’ll get Xia VS Amale in a tiebreaker. Good introduction to Damon Kemp since all he’s done is be on Level Up. Can’t wait to see Kemp get into the Heritage Cup Division, too. Maybe Kemp is the first Yankee to put his name on the Heritage Cup. Wagner sure ain’t the one. He has a good match with Saxon but only a decent promo after. He definitely needs Robert Stone for right now. I almost thought someone was gonna step up to Von during, but maybe Von runs into Dave Mastiff next time.

A decent video for “Tiger Turan,” and “Turan” implies Central Asia/Middle East despite the masked wrestler supposedly being from the Himalayas. I sure hope this is still Amir Jordan back for revenge in the only way he can since Amir Jordan was banished from NXT UK. And speaking of banishing superstars, quite the surprise for Dragunov VS Devlin to have a “Loser Leaves NXT UK” stipulation. That will mean this really can go either way because I can see either Dragunov or Devlin moving to NXT USA and being set up into the North American Championship scene. Just no name changes, please. Dragunov is already a stage name, and Jordan Devlin is too good to change since it works with his finisher’s name.

My Score: 8.3/10

PLAY BY PLAY

Ilja Dragunov is here!

The NXT Champion heads to the ring and the fans are all fired up, because the Mad Dragon is not going to wait any longer! “Carmelo Hayes! You disgusting rodent of a man! Let’s go!! I’m not in the mood to wait around all night. This is Stand & Deliver season!” The fans fire up for that! Dragunov says what did Melo say last week? That if this isn’t about the NXT Championship, there’s nothing to talk about? What Melo is looking for is right here. So come on out of your little hiding place, and let’s talk about it. Melo makes his entrance and the fans boo, and now security moves in to be a wall between Dragunov and HIM.

Melo has a mic of his own to say, “Ilja, you the NXT Champion, for now. But you ain’t the superstar that make this brand go, I am. And it’s been that way since I stepped on the scene with that ruthless aggression. Y’see this right here, Ilja? This security. They’re Melo’s security. And they’re here to do whatever it is I need them to do. Look at you. You still pissed off that I used you, huh, Ilja? That I made Trick doubt the Great Ilja Dragunov, with your custom suits, so honorable and all your integrity. Ugh, you make me sick.” Fans boo and tell Melo to “Shut The Hell Up!” Melo says he can tell Dragunov is spiteful.

Dragunov says after what Melo did, he is damn right about Dragunov! And that is why Melo isn’t stepping in that ring with him. Not until he sees a contract and Ava makes this official. Because, Ilja, losing that NXT Championship is your biggest fear. And Melo knows Ilja isn’t the type to try and take Melo out before the match. So go ahead, get it all in order, and then they can talk business. Fans boo more but Melo says Dragunov has until the end of the night. Dragunov drops the mic, rushes up, and he CLOBBERS security guard after security guard! Melo falls back, the remaining guards form a circle around him.

Dragunov stays back, he raises the belt, but will Melo still get what he wants?

 

NXT Media catches up with Ava Raine.

Just before the show began, reporters asked the NXT General Manager about the big show planned tonight. Yes, this is a big lead-up to Stand & Deliver. Then she spots Gigi Dolin and asks what’s up. Gigi says she just wanted to talk about what’s next for herself. Absolute, this is a competitive Women’s Division, they can definitely talk it out. Awesome! They went to Ava’s office, where Jaida Parker was already waiting. How’d she get in here? Jaida says she had a key. Now, no disrespect, but they gotta talk about Jaida’s future. She ran through Rizzo, and- Gigi says great win, yeah. But Gigi’s meeting was first, line starts behind her.

Jaida says she doesn’t wait in any lines, and especially not behind Gigi. Gigi says Jaida should learn who she’s talking to. Hold on, World Star’s never mentioned Gigi. Well, she’ll give them something to talk about then. Ava has them both stop. They’re not gonna World Star in here. What’s next for both of them will be each other. So now they can leave, starting with Jaida. Jaida heads out, will she be making World Star news after getting toxic with Gigi?

 

Kelani Jordan VS Kiana James w/ Izzi Dame!

The Gym Princess has been getting the spotlight, and that put her on the Calculator’s hit list! Will Kiana prove she’s still the future of NXT and no one else? Or will Kelani’s potential be off the charts?

Kelani tells Izzi that’s what she gets, then she drags Kiana into the ring. Cover, TWO! Kiana sits up, into Kelani’s SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Kelani drags Kiana up, whips her to a corner hard, then storms up. Kelani whips corner to corner, Kiana reverses but Kelani goes up again,. But Kiana blocks the rana to SLAM Kelani down, then literally KICKS her out of the ring! Izzi is there to taunt Kelani, and Kiana goes out after her. Kiana drags Kelani up to SMACK her off the apron! Kiana then CHOPS Kelani, high fives Izzi, then RAMS Kelani into the apron! The ref reprimands, the ring count climbs, but Kiana puts Kelani in.

Kiana talks trash while she stalks Kelani, then brings her up. Kelani throws body shots, only for Kiana to knee her low! Kiana drags Kelani up to TOSS her to a corner. Kiana handsprings, runs in and RAMS into Kelani! Kiana then brings Kelani out to kitchen sink knee! Cover, TWO! Kelani stays in this but Kiana scowls as she looms over her. Kiana taunts Kelani, CHOKES her on the ropes, but lets off as the ref counts. Izzi laughs at Kelani while she crawls away. Kiana drags Kelani up to CLUB her down, then goes to ropes.

Winner: Kiana James, by pinfall

The Izzi insurance policy strikes again! Will nothing stop these two in their hostile takeover of NXT?

 

NXT shares footage from after last week’s show.

Roxanne Perez was still seething over someone else swooping in and getting a title shot before her. Last time was Tatum and Lola, this time was Shotzi and Lash Legend! Is the universe just against her? And leave the broken TV where it is, it doesn’t matter! But Jakara says, “Check, please.” This is just how a superstar operates. Lash Legend stays ready so she ain’t gotta get ready. That’s something Roxie needs to understand. Roxie says Lash was just in the right place at the right time. Unlike Jakara right now. Oh, whatever, you lost, just go- Roxie fires off on Jakara! The rest of the locker room rushes in, but this explains tonight’s match. Will Roxie’s wrath wreck Miss Jackson?

 

The Good Brothers VS Malik Blade & Edris Enofe!

In a shocking return last week, Karl Anderson & Luke Gallows ran in, wrecked some top teams in NXT, and then staked their claim to the top spot! Will the Machine Gun and Big LG make NXT Too Sweet? Or will they learn Malik & Edris are far from rookies?

NXT returns as Malik & Edris make their entrance. The teams sort out and Malik starts against Karl. Karl kicks low, bumps Malik off buckles, then fires off haymakers. The ref counts but Karl stomps away until 4. The fans fire up, Karl talks some smack on Malik, then storms back up. Karl whips Malik to ropes, but Malik ducks ‘n’ dodges, cartwheels and DROPKICKS! The fans fire up for “Malik! Da Freak!” as he wrenches and brings Karl over. Tag to Edris, they double whip Karl to ropes, then double drop toehold! Then they DOUBLE DROPKICK! Gallows gets in but he gets DOUBLE DROPKICKS, too!

The ref reprimands and Gallows bails out. Edris runs at Karl but Karl UPPERCUTS him away! Then UPPERCUTS him again! Karl whips, Edris goes up and over and keeps moving, to RANA Karl away! Karl flounders, Edris runs up to CHOP! Tag to Malik, he and Edris double whip Karl again. Double shoulders knock Karl down, then Malik sets up so Edris can run and POMMEL HORSE SPLASH! Edris sets up now and Malik runs, step-up ELBOW DROP! The fans fire up for the combo moves and Malik brings Karl around. Gallows shouts at Malik and that’s a distraction enough for Karl to pull Malik’s ear!

Karl puts Malik in the corner, tags Gallows, and the Good Brothers mug Malik! The ref counts, the Good Brothers let off and Karl eggs Edris on. Gallows digs his boot in, stands on Malik, then lets off. Gallows brings Malik up, suplexes and puts him on the ropes, to then run and BOOT Malik down! The fans are torn as Big LG drags Malik up. Malik throws body shots but Gallows UPPERCUTS! Malik sits back, only for Gallows to rain down elbows! Gallows clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Malik down. The fans rally as Malik endures and fights up. Malik throws body shots, but Gallows HEADBUTTS him down!

Gallows puts Malik in the corner to fire body shots, then he UPPERCUTS! Malik sits right down and the fans fire up. Gallows stomps Malik, tags Karl, and Karl stomps Malik. Karl clamps on a chinlock and he grinds Malik into the mat. Malik endures, the fans rally up, and Malik fights to his feet. Malik throws elbows but Karl CLUBS Malik. Karl reels Malik in for a back suplex, but Malik lands out of it! Malik sunset flips Karl, TWO! Karl stands up but Malik dodges him, hot tag to Edris! Edris dodges Karl to BLAST Gallows! Edris rallies on Karl with big clotheslines, then he runs to SLING-DOG! Gallows runs in, Malik & Edris DUMP him back out!

Edris kicks Karl, reels him in, JACKHAMMER! Malik LEAPS at Gallows, but Gallows catches him! Gallows SHOVES Malik into steel steps! Edris BOOTS Gallows from the apron! Edris then climbs, aims at Karl, 450- NO, Edris has to roll through as Karl moves! Karl comes back to SPINEBUSTER! Tag to Gallows and the Good Brothers get Edris up. MAGIC KILLER!! Cover, Good Brothers win!

Winners: The Good Brothers, by pinfall

But before the celebration can begin, Chase U is here! Andre Chase says if the Good Brothers wanna interrupt a Chase U victory, then they’re gonna learn that karma’s a bitch! Duke Hudson says Gallows & Anderson aren’t the first team to come into NXT thinking they can just do what they want. But this time, Chase U’s backs aren’t turned. And y’know what that calls for, Mr. Chase? Oh, yes. These two deserve an Andre Chase University sized- WAIT! Axiom & Nathan Frazer storm out here! Frazer says here we go again. Mr. Chase, Duke, congrats on being #1 contenders. But when it comes to Gallows & Anderson, Axiom & Frazer have next.

Good Brothers wanna jump people from behind? Well, at least when a team like LWO shows up to NXT, they confront people to their face. Axiom adds that he and Frazer have no problem dealing with Good Brothers. Duke says not if Chase U gets them first. But then speaking of LWO! Cruz & Wilde are up top, they DOUBLE MISSILE DROPKICK the Good Brothers! And all the teams go after Gallows & Anderson! Gallows & Anderson bail out, and then we see the Wolf Dogs watching from the perch! The NXT Tag Team Champions are very amused at all the teams fighting each other, but will they be ready for when Chase U looks to be a Roadblock next week?

 

Ava Raine is on the phone.

She confirms to whoever this is, that there will be some big title matches for Roadblock, it will be a great show. Someone walks in, and it’s Oba Femi! Ava excuses herself from the call and asks what’s up. Oba wants to know who is his next “victim.” Ava says she is figuring that out because there are many guys who’d love a shot at the North American Championship. Oba says they might say that now, but when they get in the ring with him, they will regret those words. But then in steps Ilja! Champion stares down champion, and Oba smiles before he leaves. Dragunov says he and Ava need to talk. Is The Czar going to acquiesce to Melo’s demands?

 

Roxanne Perez VS Jakara Jackson w/ Lash Legend!

We saw how this match came about, now we’re gonna see how it goes! Will The Prodigy use her new edge to cut down one of the Meta Four? Or will her anger get the better of her this close to Stand & Deliver?

NXT returns as Jakara makes her entrance, Lash right by her side. The bell rings and the two rush in! Roxie hits a THESZ PRESS and fast hands! Jakara gets away, goes out, but Roxie runs up! Lash gets Jakara away so Roxie stops herself. Roxie rushes out there but Lash stands in the way. Jakara runs up but Roxie avoids the sucker punch to ROCK Jakara! Roxie pushes Jakara in but Jakara kicks back! Lash talks trash and Jakara puts Roxie in. Jakara runs up to DROPKICK Roxie to a corner! The fans rally, Jakara fires body shots on Roxie, then says she’s Miss Jackson! CHOP! Roxie sputters and crawls, Jakara talks trash, but Roxie elbows her back!

Roxie puts Jakara in a corner and UPPERCUTS! Roxie CHOPS, CHOPS, and then shoves Jakara down. Roxie goes up and up and LIONSAULTS! Cover, TWO! Jakara survives but Roxie got her with legs more than anything. Roxie puts Jakara on ropes, whips her, but Jakara reverses. Roxie stops herself to SOBAT! Roxie then reels Jakara in for a facelock! Jakara endures, they go around and around, and Roxie CLUBS Jakara down. Roxie hops on, but Lash reaches out to save Jakara! The fans boo, but then the ref EJECTS Lash! Lash protests but she did it in plain sight! Jakara is devastated, but then Roxie goes after her!

Jakara gest around, pulls hair, EDGE-O-MATIC! Cover, TWO! Roxie goes to ropes, Jakara runs up and trips Roxie! Jakara drags Roxie to the apron to CLUB her, then Jakara shoves her back in. Jakara clamps onto Roxie with chicken wings but the fans rally up. Jakara shifts to a motorcycle stretch and she leans back to really pull on the arms! The ref counts as Jakara pulls hair now! Roxie pops free to cover, TWO! Jakara SMACKS Roxie off the mat, she pie faces her around, then stands her up. Roxie SLAPS Jakara! Jakara SLAPS back! Roxie SLAPS again, now it’s a SLAP fight! Roxie gets Jakara good, then fires off body shots!

The fans fire up with Roxie and she whips. Jakara reverses but Roxie CLOBBERS her! Roxie SMACKS Jakara, then SHOTGUNS her down! Roxie kips up, fires up, and she runs in to UPPERCUT in the corner! Roxie wrenches and clinches, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! And then CROSSFACE!! Jakara taps, Roxie wins!

Winner: Roxanne Perez, by submission

Roxie lets go and has a sinister smile on her face. Jakara said you say ready so you don’t have to get ready, so is this prove Roxie is ready for one more shot at the title?

 

Thea Hail talks with Jacy Jayne & Jazmyn Nyx.

So Thea talked with Riley. He came crawling back? Men always do. Because the women don’t chase the men, the men chase the women. Right… No. It was the opposite. He was really excited to go on the date with Thea, but then the girl he went out with wasn’t the girl he expected. So he said they’re better off as friends. Wait, what’d he expect? Uh, duh, the happy, energetic, fun-loving Thea. Oh, so the old Thea. Well, sorta. So, the Thea that was a loser? What? No, not this Thea. The old Thea! That Thea was a loser. Well, Fallon- Fallon Henley? She’s a moron! She practically begs people to be her friend!

The Thea that Jacy saw, who desperately needed help in her Chase U shirt and uncontrollable energy? Trust Jacy, Thea is much better off. What about Duke & Chase? They’re losers! They’re all losers! If not for Jacy, Chase U would be gone. True… But then in walks Kiana & Izzi. Kiana compliments Jacy on the calendars. Didn’t they sell out three times already? Thank you! Someone gets it! Jacy tells Kiana that Thea wanted to actually take advice from Fallon. Pfft, Fallon? Really? They all laugh and say Fallon is the last person to listen to on anything. Agreed. So, tell Kiana more about the calendar.

Jacy & Jazmyn leave with Kiana & Izzi, and Thea sighs. A loser? Seriously? Is Thea starting to see Jacy’s true colors aren’t Chase U black and red?

 

The Wolf Dogs are backstage.

Bron Breakker is talking to Baron Corbin about spicing up the jacket. Bron has an airbrush guy, they can do something about this. Corbin doesn’t care, this isn’t Spring Break 99, he’s not spray-painting his jacket. Okay, okay, fine. Maybe just put some tanner on his pasty face then. The Good Brothers walk by and Corbin asks if they had a rough night. The tag division’s got some depth, huh? Karl says look, it’s Corbin acting like he loves this place. Corbin says they got jokes. NXT reinvigorated Corbin’s career! Reinvigorated! Corbin’s back to kicking asses. Back to kicking asses! And he won these tag titles all by himself! All by him-

Wait. Corbin, c’mon, stop messing around. Corbin tells Bron he’s just messing around, Mr. SmackDown. That was a really good Spear from Bron last Friday, right? Gallows says these are the NXT Tag Team Champions? Then this is gonna be easier than they thought. Karl agrees, and while the Dogs have their jokes, it stoked a flame inside the Good Brothers that’s been gone a long time. See, Good Brothers came here like Corbin did eight months ago. And he doesn’t like that, because he knows it won’t take them that long to become NXT Tag Team Champions. Corbin says last week, they said Corbin was a comedian.

But what’s really funny is the sound Karl’s face made when AJ Styles slapped him across the mouth. Bron adds an “OHHH~!” Karl says then you go ahead and try something. Gallows says not yet. Bron says between the four of them, yeah it’s a good time, he and Corbin make jokes. But when the bell rings, the dogs come out, and they destroy everyone. Good catchphrase. Let’s see if the dogs get past Chase U. And if they do, Good Brothers will be waiting. Is The OC ready to Stand & Deliver?

 

DIJAK VS Luca Crusifino!

#HardJustice and the Legal Eagle had a… disagreement on how to treat Joe Gacy. Luca believes no one is above the law, but Dijak says he IS the law! Cliche as that may sound, will Dijak prove to Luca that might makes right? Or will Luca bring Dijak to true justice?

NXT returns and Luca makes his entrance. The bell rings and the two tie up. Dijak knees low, then ROCKS Luca! Luca staggers, Dijak talks trash but Luca fires off body shots and haymakers! Luca CLUBS Dijak, swings more, but Dijak pulls hair! Luca avoids the haymaker to clothseline Dijak up and out! Luca runs to WRECK Dijak, and Dijak tumbles up and over treh desk!! The fans fire up and Luca gets Dijak in. But he can’t lift Dijak! Dijak throws hands, Luca hits back, the fans fire up. Luca runs up but Dijak ELBOWS him! Dijak goes up, leaps, but into an UPPERCUT! Luca runs corner ot corner to CANNONBALL!

The fans fire up with Luca, and he drags Dijak up. Dijak still fights the back suplex, throws more hands and then CLUBS Luca down. Luca clutches his back but Dijak stomps him. Dijak stalks Luca to a corner, then throws elbow after elbow! The ref counts, Dijak CLUBS Luca in the chest. Dijak stands Luca back up, and CHOPS! Luca screams in pain and the fans “WOO~!” Dijak says how’s that? He CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Luca CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! They fire hands, Dijak SUPERKICKS Luca back! The fans are thunderous as Dijak reels Luca, TIME TO- NO, Luca slips free! And he back suplexes! Only for Dijak to land out and LARIAT!

The fans fire up while both men rise. Dijak choke grips, but Luca fights with elbows and a LARIAT! And another LARIAT! Dijak stays up, so Luca runs to LARIAT! Dijak is still up, so Luca runs again! LARIAT! Dijak swings, Luca gets around, BIG back suplex! The fans fire up while both men are down again. Luca roars, runs corner to corner, and clotheslines in the corner! Luca keeps moving, but the CYCLONE BOOT finds him! Dijak roars, drags Luca up and torture racks, FEAST YOUR EYES! Cover, Dijak wins!

Winner: Dijak, by pinfall

Hard Justice might have won out, but Luca put up a hell of a fight! And wait! Here comes Joe Gacy! He is tearing free of the straitjacket! Dijak is furious, he shouts at Gacy, and Luca finds Tony D’Angelo’s crowbar?! Luca CLOBBERS Dijak, and then Gacy goes after Dijak! Gacy CLUBS away, sending Dijak to the back! And as for Luca, well, the D’Angelo Family is watching backstage. The Don confirms with Stacks and Rizzo, he saw what we all saw. Tony tells Stacks to go get Luca. Right now? No, Tony has bigger business to handle. Then Stacks can go get him. Stacks says, “You got it, boss.” Does Tony mean all this in a good way or a bad way?

 

Backstage interview with Noam Dar & Oro Mensah.

Kelly Kincaid spooks Supernova 11 while he was drinking, and he says don’t do that! He has PTSD from the sneak attack by Von & Stone! She doesn’t even care! Kelly apologizes, and then asks that the Catch Clause means he could be facing anyone from the No Quarter Catch Crew. Who would Dar prefer to face tonight? Dar says Meta Four is ready for anything. Tonight, Jakara took Roxie to her limit, Lash had two matches in one night, and in the second one, with no preparation, she nearly won the NXT Women’s Championship. Kelly, who is doing it like them? NOBODY~! Dar & Oro high-five.

Dar says Catch Clause this, Catch Clause that, it can be Papa Gulak, Uncle Mullet, it can be… Uh, who’s the fourth guy? Oro says just call him “new guy.” It could be the new kid or Charlie the Chocolate Factory. The result remains the same: Meta Four, five trophies, one picture. Check, please! Back to you, Vic & Booker! Dar’s always wanted to do that. But will all the confidence in the world not save Dar from whoever the NQCC is sending his way?

 

Lyra Valkyria is here!

The Morrigan heads to the ring and the fans cheer. The NXT Women’s Champion gets the mic, and says first thing’s first: We all wish Shotzi a speedy recovery. The fans cheer that, and Lyra wants to make it known that when Shotzi makes it back, Lyra owes her the title shot. And we gotta give Lash her flowers, she showed up, showed out and stepped up. And Lyra still has the battle wounds to prove it. But Lyra promised us she’d still be here the champion, and well, she’s a woman who keeps her promises. And last week, Lyra made Tatum a promise. So trust her, no one is as shocked as Lyra that Tatum held up her end! Time to give her what she’s earned, right?

So then, Tatum, please come out here. The superfan hurries her way out, but from the crowd side! Lyra says of course. But Tatum gets into the ring with Lyra and says it is so good to see her. Lyra, last week was so hard for Tatum. And then Ava Raine came out to issue an open challenge just so someone else can get near her! “My sweet, sweet dove, in danger of losing her title!” Yes, but, Lyra didn’t. And Tatum actually did what she was asked to do. OF COURSE! Because Tatum would do anything for Lyra. And Tatum has proven her devotion for her! Er, uh… She proved she’s a woman of her word. Yes, that she did.

And Lyra did promise Tatum a surprise. So is Tatum ready? Tatum closes her eyes and holds out her hands but Lyra says no, she can keep her eyes open, it’s not like that. Oh, okay. Lyra spoke with Ava, some calls were made, and next week at Roadblock, Lyra & Tatum team together! OMG Tatum knew it! Lyra said it was a one time thing, but Tatum knew that they’d be together forever and ever and- Whoa, whoa, hold on. It is not them teaming as friends. So more than friends? As a team, taking on The Kabuki Warriors for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships! The fans fire up and Tatum can barely speak!

Tatum puts it together. Tatum.. And Lyra… against Asuka & Kairi for the tag titles? But wait! Ridge Holland comes out here now? He apologizes and says he is very happy about their opportunity, and he wishes them the best of luck in becoming champions together. But if they’re finished, then please leave because he has something very important to get off his chest. The fans boo Ridge stepping on Tatum’s moment, but Lyra & Tatum do exit. Ridge says he is a man of action more than he is of words. But it seems his actions as of late have gotten him in this predicament. When he retaliates, it is always Ridge who takes it “too far.”

But whether he likes it or not, whether he understands the bias, he is still here to apologize for all his actions. Fans boo, but Ridge says he was defending himself against Gallus. He was defending his family! There was no true malice behind it. But wait, the lights go out! And then the tron lights up! A voice says, “Truth will ultimately prevail. But there is pain in bringing it to light.” The lights go out again, and then someone is behind Ridge! They SMASH him with a chair! The fans chant “TEN! TEN! TEN!” because yes, it is TYE DILLINGER!! Or rather, Shawn Spears! The Chair Man is in NXT! The fans lose their minds, they didn’t think it was him! Is he going to take NXT to a perfect ten?

 

Brooks Jensen confronts Oba Femi!

Jensen says if Oba’s still looking for a challenger, then he’s that guy. Oba chuckles and asks if Jensen is sure. Because Jensen seems to be confused. Jensen says Briggs told him to grow some balls, so he put up that fight and busted Briggs up. Now if Oba takes the challenge, Jensen will bust him up! Oba stares Jensen down. Standing up after a fight is one thing, but after Oba is done, Jensen won’t even be able to walk away. Oba heads out, will he be right about his next “victim” soon regretting their decision?

 

Backstage interview with Carmelo Hayes.

At least, Kelly is hoping to, but security stands in front of the door. But word is, Ava is drafting a contract for a signing later tonight. Security lets Kelly through now, and Kelly asks Melo about earlier tonight. Melo has her stop, and says it is pretty simple. He wants Ilja out there, and Ava with a contract, signed, sealed and delivered. Then all Melo has to do is put his name to paper. But tell Ilja for him, no contract means no Melo. Kelly thanks him for his time, will Ava come through for both sides of the fight?

 

Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone VS Lexis King!

Though they failed against The Meta Four, Von & Stone are still proud of the fight they put up. However, effort doesn’t matter to The Drama King, only the results. Will Lexis make big bad Von bow down to him? Or will King be thrown off his throne and right through a table?

NXT returns and Von makes his entrance, Suit Man Stone by his side. The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally, the two tie up, and Von shoves King right down! King gets up but gets thrown again, and again! Von swings, King dodges and CHOPS! Von just frowns, then he CHOPS King down! Von headlocks, King powers up and out, but Von hurdles then runs King over! Von whips King and back drops him! King writhes and the fans fire up! Von drags King up, says we’re going up, and he suplexes King! Stone starts a count for how long King is in the air, and Von goes past TEN to SLAM King at 13!

The fans fire up and Von waits on King. King is in a corner, Von runs up but King dodges! Knee hits buckle, then King dropkicks the knee! Von hobbles back up, but King KICKS his leg! And KICKS it again! King mocks Von but Von ROCKS King! King staggers, Von runs up but the boot gets stuck on ropes! King KICKS the leg, CHOPS and kicks Von more, then has the leg for a SHIN BREAKER! Then a DRAGON SCREW! King keeps on Von’s leg by puling it to the apron! King SLAMS the leg on the apron, then SLAMS it into the post! The fans boo, Stone is frustrated for Von but King pushes Von to a cover, ONE!!

King mocks Von, pushes him around, then kicks him. Von throws body shots but King CLUBS Von! King has the leg, and he SMASHES the knee into the mat! And he SMASHES the knee again! Von writhes, King grabs the leg, but Von kicks at King with the good leg! King still holds on, but Von BOOTS him! Von choke grips King, stands and shoves him, then DECKS King! And DECKS him again! Von whips but King KNEES back! Von roars, King runs, but Von BOOTS him down! The fans fire up with Von, and Von runs up to clothesline King up and out! The fans fire up as Stone mocks King. Von storms out but King throws hands.

King and Von brawl, but King sends Von into Stone! The fans boo but Von ROCKS King! Von checks Stone but Stone says focus on King. Von hurries back in, hauls him up but King CHOP BLOCKS the leg! King lines up the shot, and he BLINDSIDE KNEES Von! King then crosses the arms but Stone distracts King! King rushes up on Stone, and Von rolls King up! VON WINS!

Winner: Von Wagner, by pinfall

King is shocked but he just got a taste of his own medicine! So King goes after Von for it! King stomps the leg, rains down fists, but stone gets in! Stone drags King away by his hair but King SLAPS Stone! King crosses the arms, CORONATION! Fans boo but refs rush out to get King to back off. King may not have won, but he made Stone pay for it. Will nothing stop The Drama King from doing what he wants?

 

Tatum and Lyra regroup backstage.

They finish watching the Kabuki Warriors highlight package like the rest of us, and Asuka was undefeated for a really long time. But imagine, Lyra & Tatum take the Women’s Tag Team Championships back to NXT. And that would also mean Lyra is a double champion! Tatum will always look out for Lyra. She’s a really good partner. Who told her that? Jaida walks in and says she was gonna feel bad for Gigi, given she’s about to whoop dat ass. But uh, y’all two? You’ll be embarrassed by Asuka & Kairi! Lyra keeps Tatum back, and Arianna Grace stands up. Ladies, we’re all supposed to be supportive role models who settle arguments with words.

Not everything has to end in a fight! What problem does Lyra have with the Kabuki Warriors? There is no problem. Then why challenge them to a fight? Because they wanna be tag champions, duh! They are all champions in their hearts and in their minds. Jaida says she’d rather have a title around her waist than some dumb tiara on her head. Arianna is upset, and Lyra says this is pro-wrestling. Fighting is the norm. Arianna says it is only normal until they change it. What is the pageant queen inspired to do now?

 

Dijak argues with Ava.

Gacy should be in a padded cell! He’s a maniac! Ava says Dijak’s the one who threw the guy in a dumpster! Gacy says Dijak may be done with him, but he’s not done with Dijak! Wait, Gacy’s the one behind the camera?! Gacy attacks, security rushes in to stop these two and Ava says they cannot keep doing this! What will it take for Dijak and Gacy to put this to rest?

 

Gigi Dolin VS Jaida Parker w/ OTM!

Speaking of titles, of course both ladies want their shot at the top title. To get up the ranks, they’ll have to go through each other. Will Jaida from the block do as she promised and whoop dat ass? Or will Gigi make Jaida respect the former NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion?

NXT returns as Jaida makes her entrance, Nima, Price & Scrypts following behind. The bell rings and the fans rally. The two tie up, Jaida waistlocks and SLAMS Gigi down. Jaida talks trash on Gigi but Gigi runs up, Jaida gets around to waistlock, but Gigi switches. Gigi headlocks, spins, and drop toeholds! Gigi floats to a facelock and she grinds Jaida down. Jaida fights up, wrenches out and WRINGS, but Gigi rolls through! Gigi rolls Jaida up, TWO! Jaida knees low, talks trash, and she has Gigi on the ropes. The ref counts, Jaida lets off, and fans duel. Jaida SLAPS Gigi, eggs her on, then whips. Gigi ducks ‘n’ dodges to then hook and arm-drag!

Jaida tumbles to ropes, Gigi runs up and HIP ATTACKS! Gigi keeps moving and she DROPKICKS! Jaida sputters but Gigi covers, TWO! Gugi stalks Jaida to a corner, but Jaida kicks a leg out. Jaida bumps Gigi off buckles, throws hands, then stomps away. Jaida lets off, eggs Gigi on, but Gigi fires off forearms! Jaida ROCKS and CHOPS Gigi, hen knees low. Jaida scoops Gigi to put her in ropes, then CHOPS! Jaida runs, goes up and up and HIP DROPS! Cover, TWO! Jaida scowls, and she drags Gigi up. Jaida suplexes but Gigi cradle counters! TWO, and Jaida runs up to knee low! Jaida runs, and hits a BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO!!

Gigi survives and Jaida grows frustrated. Jaida clamps on with a seated cobra twist but the fans rally as Gigi endures. Gigi fights up, throws body shots, but Jaida knees low. Jaida whips, runs in, but into a BOOT! Fans rally, Gigi goes to another corner and Jaida runs in, Gigi BOOTS Jaida, runs up, gets around and ROCKS Jaida with forearm after forearm! The fans fire up but is that Arianna Grace making her way out here? She’s pleading with Gigi and Jaida to stop fighting? Gigi dodges Jaida to SHOTGUN her down! Gigi then lines up the shot to LARIAT! And wrench, and ROUNDHOUSE! Gigi reels Jaida in but they both see Arianna.

Jaida avoids Gigi’s ripcord lariat to ROCK and CHOP Gigi! Gigi ROCKS Jaida, CHOPS her and fires off fast hands! Arianna keeps begging, Gigi blocks Jaida’s shot to kick a leg out! Kawada Kicks! Arianna gest on the apron, the ref says to get down, but Arianna stops Gigi from hitting Jaida with a haymaker! Gigi HEADBUTTS Arianna! But Jaida CLOBBERS Gigi! Jaida runs to SLIDING FOREARM!! Cover, Jaida wins!

Winner: Jaida Parker, by pinfall

Arianna didn’t want anyone fighting, and now she costs Gigi the fight! Jaida still gets the win, will she be the one primed for a title shot? Arianna says that NXT needs to come together, but does she even understand what this sport is about? Or will Gigi have to slap some sense into her?

 

Waves are rolling in.

And in the sand is written, “See you soon.” Does this mean the Soul Surfer is on her way back to NXT?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Roadblock!

Ava Raine wants the madness to end, so she is putting Dijak and Gacy in an ASYLUM MATCH!! The weaponized cage is making its return, will either man be walking away from this one?

 

NXT Heritage Cup Championship: Noam Dar w/ The Meta Four VS ??? w/ The No Quarter Catch Crew!

The Scottish Supernova has held onto this trophy through every trick in the book and then some, but he might’ve just run into a trick even he can’t get around! The Catch Clause is gonna keep everyone guessing until the moment of truth, will this be the moment Dar finally loses the Cup?

Andrew’s TNA Xplosion Results & Match Ratings: 2.22.2024

We get Dirty Dango and Mike Bailey in action, as well as the Around the Ring interview with Speedball Mike Bailey!

Published

on

Let’s remember this took place right before the No Surrender pre-show, so there’s still No Surrender hype in the announcer points.

Therefore, we already know most of how the Top 5 turns out and if the allusions for momentum pay off…but Xplosion has established itself as more than just a wrestling show. We get to see a few of the undercard players get some ring time, we get wholesome interviews with Gia in full Southern Fried charming glory, and we always get some nice nostalgia moment with the throwback match. Its a quick and dirty 45 minutes, so its hard to be mad.

Speaking of dirty, he’s in the main event!

 

Ratings:

  • Mike Bailey vs Jai Vidal: Speedball wins via Ultima Weapon – ** 3/4
  • Laredo Kid vs Dirt Dango w/Oleg Prudius & Alpha Bravo: Dango wins via Down & Dirty – ** 1/2

 

Results:

Mike Bailey vs Jai Vidal

Vidal tries a cheap shot, Bailey blocks, puts his hands behind his back and says “try again”, he ducks the slap. Gives Vidal one more chance and just front kicks him when he winds up. Vidal is on the receiving end of early strikes and the Bailey Kick Flurry. Running Boot sends Vidal crashing to the floor, Triangle Moonsault connects and its all Speedball so far. Bailey throws Vidal back in, but Jai slips out and Bailey loses track of him when he goes under the ring. So Jai gets behind him, picks the leg and throws Bailey into the stairs.

Back in the ring, Jai is hitting a few Open Hand Smacks and a Tornado DDT. Jai goes for the SLAYmore Kick, but Bailey catches it and starts lighting up Jai with kicks into the Running Shooting Star Press. Vidal ducks a few Buzzsaw Kicks but Bailey holds one to catch him when he thinks he’s safe. Tornado Kick to the corner misses, Jai uses the ropes to keep distance, trips Bailey and then lands the Double Stomp into the SLAYmore Kick…but Bailey kicks out!

Jai lands a few Slaps that just piss off Speedball, he stands up, they trade shots, Jai misses the Yakuza kick, Tornado Kick lands into Ultima Weapon for the Bailey’s win!

Around the Ring with Gia Miller has Mike Bailey on it today. They start off with Bailey revealing he went to Cooking School and both he and Gia enjoying cooking. Ahh I relate to Bailey on the can’t bake aspect because its too specific and basically science. Bailey’s thing he created that he hasn’t been able to remake is a Pulled Pork Brie Grilled Cheese. I’m only mentioning that since it sounds delicious. 

TNA+ Flashback Moment: Jeff Hardy vs Bully Ray, No Surrender 2012

This is right towards the end of the TNA height, still solid matches and memories, but its kind of like watching events from WCW 1999. 

Laredo Kid vs Dirt Dango w/Oleg Prudius & Alpha Bravo

Ahh he mixed it up saying he hates Lucha Libre this time. 

Dango keeps up with Laredo a little until a Headscissors sends Dango flying, Bravo and Prudius try to block Dango which causes Laredo to pivot. Wrecking Ball Dropkick for Bravo into a big Moonsault into bodies and Laredo is rolling.

They get back in the ring, Forearm Smash into a Michinoku Driver and Uno Mas Moonsaults, but Bravo distracts him on two and a Release Side Suplex gives Dango the edge. Dango just fires Laredo into the corners a few times and goes for a quick cover, but barely gets a 2. Chin Lock into a Sleeper gives Dango the heelish “rest hold” advantage. Laredo tries to fire but Dango stops it with a Knee. Near fall again and Dango goes into a Crossface to keep the Luchador grounded.

Laredo slips a Fireman’s Carry, Dango tries to chase, misses, and Laredo throws some offense together. Missile Dropkick into a Flying Neckbreaker for 2. Laredo goes for a Brainbuster, Dango slips it, hits the ropes and simultaneous Lariats to lay both out. Laredo is the first one up, Forearms into a big slap, goes for a Rope Run, but Dango turns him INSIDE OUT with a Western Lariat. Dango heads to the top for Down & Dirty, Laredo kips up, tries to counter the attempt but Bravo distracts the referee and Oleg trips up Laredo. Down & Dirty hits, Dirty Deeds Done Dirty Cheap for the win!

Overall Score: 5.5/10

This gave Bailey a little momentum going into No Surrender, gave Jai his best showing to date, and reminded everyone that Dango is lurking in that upper middle card area thanks to his enforcers. Dango is an enjoyable gimmick, and I think they’ve done really well at using him often enough to care, but not shoving the “punk rock, don’t care” attitude in our face too much. Like most of us TNA fans remember Shannon Moore’s Book of DILIGAF, right? Punk attitude is fun, but applied correctly…and this is pretty well executed.

Also once again, Around the Ring interviews are charming, and I think do a really good job at ingratiating the talent beyond what the storyline or workrate dictates. Gia is a great interviewer.
