Solo Sikoa checks in with Cameron Grimes.

Solo says he’s got Grimes’ back so that Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams won’t try anything. Grimes can take care of business tonight, beat Melo at In Your House, and then as they promised, Solo’s got next. But Duke Hudson says  Solo has next in what? This video games at the arcade? Pff, Solo has next. But Duke says that after he beat Bron Breakker, he’s next for the NXT Championship. Grimes laughs that off. Nice haircut, Duke. Solo tells Duke that he beat Bron by DQ, and needed Gacy. That doesn’t count. Well that’s one way to look at it. But Solo is young and inexperienced. Solo wouldn’t get it because he’s not on Duke’s level.

Oh, so if Solo can’t beat Duke, he’s not ready for any title? Now he’s got it. Then let’s find out! Solo wants a match, Duke says he’ll see what he can do. Will the Street Champion of the Island show Duke he’s got more than what it takes to be a contender?

 

Grayson Waller vents to everyone backstage.

Does anyone even understand that Roxanne girl? Is she a fan or a fighter? She has no hope against Tiffany Stratton! Roxie should just sit on the other side of the barricade and learn a thing or two. No, everyone can learn! You can’t just hang around and expect to be handed things! You have to go out there and take the opportunity! Sure, some of you don’t have any athletic ability, or looks, but maybe some of you have a chance. Tiffany ran through that Bogan, Fallon Henley, and it was so good! Bogan? It’s Australian for stupid, unsophisticated American hick!

But Josh Briggs all this as Waller says Tiffany is on her way to the top while Fallon and her hick good ol’ boys are headed back to Hicksville, USA where they belong. But then Briggs walks right up to Waller. Waller says hey and Briggs says if he wants to impress people, go to the ring and take a country ass whooping. Waller tries to fake bravado, but will he just end up having both his foot in his mouth while having Briggs’ foot up his ass?

 

Tony D’Angelo and his good fellas visit Legado del Fantasma.

Just as promised, The Don brings Channing Lorenzo & Troy Donovan to Santos Escobar’s territory. But is this the right place? Has to be, it’s the biggest yacht on the dock. Just watch out, anything can happen. Escobar walks in from the lower deck and Tony says they’re late. Oh, Tony, what’s that saying? When you’re El Jefe, the people wait on you. Captain, take them somewhere nice. They go out to the water, and Escobar says Tony called for this meeting. What is this about? Or is he going to wait for his confidant, AJ Galante? Tony smiles and takes off his hat. A comedian, huh? Well Tony discussed this with AJ. And they all knew this was going to turn into a turf war

Santos has a smug on his face, walking around acting better than everyone. Emperor of his own empire. But Tony doesn’t trust him, doesn’t respect him, and if Escobar was dying of thirst in the desert, Tony wouldn’t give him a drop  of water! Well Escobar isn’t shocked. This coming from Tony D himself, the street kid who made it big by stabbing everyone in the front, and stepping on their backs on the way to the bread store. Escobar knows a snake when he sees one. And this paizon is a cobra. But in the jungle, Escobar is king. He is a python, and he’d love to squeeze every last breath out of Tony and watch him perish.

Then let’s settle this! Brilliant, Don! Shut up, Wilde! Both bosses have their men stand down. What’re they gonna do, El Jefe? Lopez says Escobar already won, what is it in for Legado? Well, senorita, the sun shines on a dog’s behind every once in awhile. But check the tape. Escobar used brass knuckles that time. Escobar laughs and says now Tony wants to play fair? But La Madrina is right. There is nothing in this for Legado. So unless they have something better to offer, see yourselves off the boat. Oh, he wants to raise the stakes? How about this? Since their guys want in, it’ll be a Six Man Tag In Your House!

Now listen to him closely, you prick. If Tony’s family wins, Legado is under the family. And if Legado wins, then Tony’s under Legado’s command. Why make such a dangerous bet that he can’t afford to win but also cannot win? Tony says that when you’re The Don, you make moves no one else can see. Not that Escobar would understand. The only thing Escobar sees is another three members of Legado that will work for him. Tony likes the yacht. He’ll use it for a celebration after they win on Saturday. Stacks says they might need a bigger boat. But after In Your House, the streets will be talking about how The Don’s crew took over Legado and gained some foot soldiers.

So do they have a deal? The bosses stand up, and Escobar says deal. They shake on it, see you at In Your House. Now get off the boat. Who will take over at NXT In Your House?

 

Cora Jade VS Elektra Lopez!

The scrappy skater girl won’t let anyone look down on her after how she went to the limit against Natalya. Will #GenerationJade take La Madrina down a peg? Or is it still too soon to say the future of NXT is now?

NXT returns as Lopez makes her entrance. The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. Cora shoots in, waistlocks, but Lopez switches and SLAMS her! Lopez tells her she has to stay outta Lopez’s business. Lopez waistlocks, Cora switches but Lopez elbows her away. Lopez waistlocks, Cora slides under then kangaroo kicks! Cora wheelbarrows and drop toeholds, then uppercuts! Cora snapmares and rolls to run and basement dropkick! Cover, TWO! Lopez gets to a corner, Cora runs in, but Lopez turns wheelbarrow into a SLAM! Lopez dribbles Cora off the mat, kicks her around, then chokes her against the ropes!

The ref counts, Lopez lets off at 4, but Cora throws back elbows! Lopez elbows Cora, TOSSES her, then storms up on her at the ropes. Lopez trips Cora, dribbles her of the mat more, then rains down fists! Fans duel and Lopez drags Cora by her hair! The ref reprimands, Lopez lets off and brings Cora up to scoop and SLAM! Lopez talks trash on Cora, hauls her up again, and scoops. Cora slips off, ROCKS Lopez with forearms, and backs her to a corner. Cora runs in but Lopez dodges the knee to CHOP BLOCK the leg! Lopez gets the legs, YANKS Cora to center, and then runs to basement dropkick! Cover, TWO!

Lopez snarls, she clamps onto Cora and ties up the legs. Lopez uses a modified HALF CRAB to bend Cora’s leg back! Cora reaches for ropes but Lopez dribbles her head again! Lopez ties up the legs for that modified crab again, but Cora gets the ROPEBREAK! Lopez holds on, yanks Cora up but Cora RANAS Lopez out! Fans fire up, Lopez rushes back in, Cora gets up and fires off forearms and elbows. Cora starts to rally, tilt-o-whirls and headscissors Lopez to a corner! ENZIGURI! Fans fire up with Cora and she grits her teeth to springboard and DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, TWO! Cora gets Lopez up, but Lopez wrenches and BLUE THUNDER BOMBS! Cover, ROPEBREAK!!

Lopez is shocked, she didn’t realize Cora would survive! Lopez stomps Cora to the apron, drags her up the corner, but Cora fires off forearms! Lopez bumps Cora off a buckle, but Cora RISING KNEES! Lopez is down, Cora is up top! SUPER SENTON! Cover, CORA WINS!!

Winner: Cora Jade, by pinfall

It was a gritty fight, but Cora came out on top! Cora is feeling good, but will she feel even better when her friend, Roxanne, wins the Women’s Breakout Tournament?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie asks Wes about giving it his all with Sanga only to challenge Xyon Quinn to their rematch. Why? He’s been wanting this for weeks now. And things haven’t been the best for him, he should take time off, but who knows, Xyon could throw his back out just getting out of bed. Yeah, he lost to Sanga. But as long as Wes can breathe, he’ll keep fighting. Speaking of Sanga, he walks over and says Wes is against Quinn. Fight him like you did Sanga. Wes isn’t ten feet tall, but Sanga knows Wes has a giant heart. Best of luck tonight. Wes doesn’t respond to the wishes, but will he follow through on Sanga’s sage advice?

 

Roxanne Perez speaks.

“Growing up in a small city like Laredo, Texas, it was really hard to dream big.” Roxie got to meet her heroes in the (then) Diva’s Division, like Natalya and Brie Bella. They encouraged her, and despite the health challenges growing up, her family also supported Roxie’s dream. That dream was to be in the WWE! Next week are the finals, a moment she’s been wanting her entire life. While her friends were watching Pretty Little Liars, she watched the WWE. She wants to be like Paige, Nikki Bella and Michelle McCool. She trained with Booker T in the Reality of Wrestling. Booker didn’t care that she was the youngest or smallest, he pushed her to go past what she thought she was capable of.

Roxie missed hanging out at the mall, going to concerts, and even prom, to have wrestling matches. Her friends didn’t get it, but the one person who knew how she felt was Cora Jade. She was doing the exact same thing. They became close pretty quickly, and they’re practically sisters. Tiffany Stratton is twice Roxie’s size and much stronger, but she is NOT more determined. Winning this tournament and that contract would change Roxie’s life. So next week, Roxie fights for her life until she gets that contract!

 

Wes Lee VS Xyon Quinn!

The Must-See Kid finally gets his rematch with the Gentleman Fighter, who was being less of a gentleman and more of a condescending coward. Will Wes bring Quinn down a peg with this one?

The bell rings and Wes rushes right in! Xyon picks him up and puts him in a corner! Xyon TOSSES Wes, but Wes lands on his feet! Fans fire up, Wes gets around, KICKS and KICKS and ENZIGURIS! Then DOUBLE STOMP! Fans fire up, Wes covers, TWO! Wes goes to the apron, he shoulders into Xyon and slingshots. Xyon stays up, Wes goes for a leg, but Xyon drags him right up into a Canadian Rack, to hang Wes out to dry! Fans boo but Xyon YANKS the rope to toss Wes! Xyon smooths his hair, stalks Wes and gets the arm. Wes throws body shots but Xyon stomps him down. Wes throws more shots but Xyon KICKS the legs!

Fans rally for Wes, he kicks from below! Xyon KICKS Wes in the back, stands on Wes’ stomach and pulls the arm! Wes endures, Xyon lets off, and he KICKS Wes again. Xyon drags Wes up to scuff him with his boot. Fans rally, Xyon talks trash but Wes throws more shots! Xyon pulls on the arm while standing on Wes’ face. WEs fights up and throws hands, but Xyon has a hard head! Xyon runs Wes over, whips him to a corner and back elbows! Then Xyon scoops to SLAM Wes down! Fans boo but Xyon covers, TWO! Fans rally, Xyon drag Wes up and RAMS him into a corner! And again! And again! The ref counts, Xyon lets off and then runs back in, into a KNEE!

Wes goes up to KICK Xyon down! Wes QUEBRADAS off the corner, but Xyon catches him! Xyon runs to LAWN DART Wes into buckles! Fans lose their minds, Xyon fires up, and Xyon runs in, but Wes rolls him up! WES WINS!!

Winner: Wes Lee, by pinfall

Xyon tried to run it straight through Wes again, but Wes turned it right around on him! Will Xyon be much more eager to get the rematch this time?

 

Roderick Strong chews out the Creeds.

What is their problem?! He told them to stay in the back and clearly they cannot follow orders! They cost Strong the match! Ivy says he is the one who doesn’t get it! Pretty Deadly was going to hit Strong with the belts, and Julius saved him! Is that true? Yeah. It is supposed to be Diamond Mine forever. But it still cost Strong! It would’ve been a DQ! Strong is the leader so when he says to do something, you do it! Strong knows what is best for them, and what is best is that In Your House, the Creeds win. Yeah, they’ll smash ’em, then- No, Brutus, Strong wasn’t done. Ivy, Creeds, right now, failure is not an option! If the Creeds lose at In Your House, they’re OUT of Diamond Mine!

Can Strong do that? He storms off and leaves the others speechless. Will the Creeds give it there all with that Diamond Mine ultimatum?

 

Joe Gacy speaks.

“How fitting that Saturday is called In Your House. Because it was in Bron Breakker’s house where those first embers of that fire, that anger, was cultivated. As a child, Bron would sit in front of his TV and watch his father blaze a Hall of Fame career, winning multiple championships in multiple companies. One of the greatest ever to step foot inside the ring, all based on uncontrollable power and excessive physicality. And during commercial braeks, Bron and his two brothers would continue where his father left off. Rick would come home, and instead of breaking it up, he would allow it to continue.

“Why not? Brothers fighting was normal for Rick and his brother, Scott. It wasn’t just survival of the fittest in the ring, but also at th ekitchen table. Instead of correcting course of his childhood anger, Bron took that uncontrollable rage onto the grid iron. He was a freight train, running over and through anyone in his way. Bron, you gave a new meaning to the term, ‘Red Zone.’ But you knew your aggression needed a better home. It needed to live in the squared circle, like father like son.” Bron ascended quickly to the NXT Champion and is now a two0time champion. The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree.

But how does Gacy know all this? Gacy learned all of it from spending time with Bron’s hero, his father. When a man is helpless, the walls come down and the truth is revealed. In a family that settles things with fists, it is natural for Bron to lash out. So lash out, Bron! Let it all out at In Your House and be the man you truly are! Be the one everyone loves to watch! Let that anger consume Bron so that Gacy gets what he deserves. It is more important to get even than to win. Bron doesn’t want to just beat Gacy, huh? He needs to go outside the rules to avenge his family. But one way or another, that title is coming home with Gacy!

Bron watches this in the locker room.

McKenzie walks in to ask Bron his reaction. The apple doesn’t fall too far from the tree, huh? Bron’s lost the belt once already, he can’t afford to lose it again. Gacy’s spooky laughter fills Bron’s room and it pisses Bron off! Why not do this right now? Born wants to smash his TV but then he calms down. Bron says maybe Gacy has a point. Bron is predictable, but his anger is not a weakness. It will be his strength! And this Saturday, Bron will rip Gacy apart! But will the anger take over and lose him everything he’s worked to have in NXT?

 

Wade Barrett is in the ring!

He welcomes the fans to the NXT Women’s Championship Summit ahead of In Your House! The champions and challengers are already here, and they’ve already signed the contracts outside of- Gigi wants Wade to hold on, but then Katana Chance tells her to hold on. Toxic Attraction has been talking for eight months, it’s time for someone else. They are all sick of hearing from Toxic Attraction, and sick of seeing them with the gold. They’ve all had a nice run, but on Saturday, KC Squared & Wendy knock Toxic Attraction of the top of the mountain. Kayden Carter adds “PREACH!”

Gigi “loves” this delusional confidence the challenges all have. She does. But you think you’re the first to think you can dethrone them all? There has been a long list already, and some can’t even show themselves in NXT. Either because they left or that time has passed them by. Or maybe they just weren’t talented to begin with. Wendy tells Mandy to just sign her part. Jacy says they understand the nerves, the butterflies in their stomachs. This is their first major event, of course. Better late than ever, though, right?

But seriously, while KC Square were making cringey TikToks and dancing in the clubs, Toxic Attraction was here! They were dominating in this ring and controlling the entire division! Kayden laughs at that! It’s easy to be on top when you barely defend the titles! KC Squared have been through hell and back, they are best friends, and that is more than we can say about Toxic Attraction! Wade wants things to stay civil, but Kayden brings up how KC Squared is the only team that’s ever beaten Gigi & Jacy! There is no way in hell these airheads win again. At In Your House, we’ll see how tight Toxic is without the titles!

Well that’s funny, because KC Squared are here representing the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild, the Lollipop Guild~! Wendy groans again, “Just sign the contract…!” Katana dares Jacy to make fun of them again and see fists go through their faces! Mandy finally speaks up, saying she’s heard enough. Toxic attraction are the best because the belts say so. And Saturday, the ones with the most pressure aren’t Bron Breakker, Cameron Grimes or- JUST SIGN THE CONTRACT! Mandy says it’s not even Tony or Legado. it is MANDY! Fans tell her to “SIGN THE CONTRACT!” Mandy says she wants them to quiet down while she talks!

Mandy says she will do whatever it takes so this child is not their next champion! She looks like she should be in Candy Land! Or Wonderland! Or Neverland! This is who they want as the face of the division? She’s in a cow onesie! When Mandy won at Halloween Havoc, they all thought she’d have a short reign. Well how many days has it been? 200 and counting! She’s said it before, will say it again: PUT SOME RESPECT ON MANDY’S NAME! NOW she will sign. Finally…! Mandy signs, everything is official. But Mandy says Wendy can play games, run her mouth, and wear stupid pajamas, but- Wendy just shoots a SPITBALL at Mandy!!

Mandy BOOTS Wendy! The fight is on and Wade bails out! KC Squared toss Gigi & Jacy while fans fire up for “NXT! NXT!” Katana PLANCHAS Jacy, Kayden SUPER CROSSBODIES Gigi! Mandy fires off on Wendy but gets turned around into a CODE BREAKER and a SUPERKICK! Wendy gets up and KC Squared set up the table! They get Mandy on it! Fans are thunderous, Wendy stands up and SUPER SLEEPY ELBOW through the table!! Toxic Attraction has all just gotten wrecked and the fans are loving it! Wendy, Kayden and Katana hold up the gold, will this be how it goes at In Your House?

 

Kiana James walks up to Ivy Nile.

Is working out all she does? Well, when she’s not competing, she’s training. What does Kiana want? Well, is Ivy going to talk to the Creeds after Saturday? What does that mean? Well after they lose to Pretty Deadly, Diamond Mine will need new members. Oh is that what you think? Ivy says the Creeds will win. Diamond Mine forever! Well according to the math, the Creeds have a less than 12% chance of winning. That’s pretty small. Ivy shoves Kiana up against the locker and asks what the numbers say about Ivy kicking her ass? About the same as they do for her boys. We’ll see about that. Ivy lets Kiana go, is she about to break The Calculator?

 

Solo Sikoa VS Duke Hudson!

The Street Champion’s got next on the North American Championship, but that’s just a verbal promise from Cameron Grimes. Will Duke swoop in and take that opportunity from him? Or will this win only solidify Solo’s place in line?

The bell rings and Duke circles with Solo. They tie up, Duke powers Solo to a corner, and the ref counts. Duke lets off with a pie face, but Solo ROCKS Duke! Solo bumps Duke off buckles, then off more buckles! Then even more buckles! Duke swings back but Solo ROCKS him first! And again, and again! Duke knees low, whips but Solo bounces off buckles to CLOBBER Duke! Fans fire up and Solo snarls, but Duke JABS! And swings, into a HEADBUTT! Solo has Duke in another corner, back body blocks, then goes corner to corner, only for Duke to bail out. Solo bails out of the hip attack, to drag Duke up by his hair!

Duke HOTSHOTS Solo away, RAMS into him, then slingshots up to GERMAN SUPLEX! Fans boo but Duke rains down fists on Solo! Duke drags Solo up to stomp back down, then he rains down more fists! Duke stomps Solo then has him at the ropes. Solo throws body shots but Duke CLUBS him! Duke whips Solo to ropes, CLOBBERS him, then paces around. Duke clinches to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly! Duke taunts Solo, brings him up, but Solo throws haymakers! Duke throat chops! Duke hauls Solo up to OVERHEAD Belly2Belly again! Cover, TWO! Fans fire up but Duke clamps onto Solo with a neck wrench.

Solo endures, Duke wrenches harder, and fans duel. Solo fights up, Duke CLUBS Solo then reels him in. Solo stops the bomb to RAM Duke into the corner! And again, and again! Solo back drops Duke away, then dodges Duke in the corner. Solo fires off hands, uppercuts, and a boot! SAMOAN DROP! Fans fire up as Solo runs corner to corner, SPLASH! And SUPERKICK! Duke sits down, Solo goes corner to corner again, HIP ATTACK! Fans fire up and Solo goes to the top rope! FLYING SOLO!! Cover, Solo wins!

Winner: Solo Sikoa, by pinfall

Solo wins it all on his own, and now he won’t be denied! But who will he be meeting after In Your House? Will Grimes win to keep his promise? Or will Melo once again be the A Champion?

 

Tiffany Stratton speaks

“Last week, I corrected the biggest injustice in NXT history. Actually, more like history of the universe. How do you have a Women’s Breakout Tournament and not put me in it? But of course, I came to my own rescue and saved the tournament when I took Nikkita’s spot. But now everyone feels bad for Nikkita. Who cares? Good leg, bad leg, it’s not like she would’ve won anyway. Now I’m where I belong: in the finals.” She has a trophy room full of awards from body building, cheerleading and gymnastics. “When you expect greatness to happen to you, success follows you around like a personal assistant.” Tiffany is better than everyone, but average people can’t comprehend that.

But let’s talk about Roxie. Did you hear that story? OMG, eye roll. She’s as exciting as cardboard. Roxie rode a bus ten HOURS to get to Reality of Wrestling. Um, sweetie, there are these things called airplanes invented over a hundred years ago. And why do we care Roxie skipped her prom? She probably didn’t have a date anyway. Tiffany is so over everyone loving Roxie. After the finals, Roxie can go cry on Cora’s shoulder while Tiffany gets the contract and moves on to be the next NXT Women’s Champion.

 

Thea Hail sits down for a press conference.

After graduating from Plum High School with a 4.0 GPA, the youngest superstar in the NXT locker room is ready to reveal her choice for college. She has Norte Dame, Alabama and North Carolina hats on her table. She is going to train at the Performance Center but attend college in the fall. Thea is excited to accept enrollment at Norte- No, something feels off about that after wearing the hat. And neither does Bama or North Carolina. She is attending CHASE UNIVERSITY! Chase and Bodhi are super pumped to hear that news! Will Thea become the valedictorian of NXT with their help?

 

Grayson Waller VS Josh Briggs w/ Fallon Henley & Brooks Jensen!

The 21st Century Success Story stepped in it once again, and now he’s facing big bad Briggs 1v1! Will Waller have to cheer Tiffany on from a wheelchair after tonight? Or will he make this match go viral?

NXT returns and Waller complains about Briggs having Fallon & Brooks in his corner! How about the horse face and Fallon to go backstage so this can be a good ol’ fashioned slobber knocker? Well, Brooks & Fallon are fine with that. Briggs is here all on his own, will that even matter against Waller?

The bell rings, Waller jabs but right into Briggs’ grip! Briggs whips, runs Waller over, and things speed up. Waller hurdles but Briggs CLUBS him! Then runs him over! Briggs fires up, runs and slides, to ROCK Waller with a right! Fans fire up with Briggs, and he gets back in the ring. Waller uses ropes as defense, then he sucker punches Briggs! Waller fires off shots, Briggs shoves him down, but Waller kicks low then EDDY GORDO KICKS! Waller knees Briggs, clamps on a cravat and neck wrench, but Briggs endures. Waller throws shoulders, knees, and he ROCKS Briggs with that last one!

Waller mocks Briggs by sitting on him and whippin’ a lasso. Briggs snarls and CHOPS Waller! Waller ROCKS Briggs, but Briggs GOURD BUSTERS! Waller avoids the elbow drop to stomp Briggs. ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Waller throws down hands and knees, then he bumps Briggs off buckles. Waller throws back elbows, whips corner to corner but Briggs reverses. Waller goes up and over, Briggs hits buckles, Waller SUPERKICKS! Cover, TWO! Waller pushes Briggs down, covers, ONE! Waller huffs and puffs, mocks the two step square dancing, but Briggs fires off hands! Briggs whips corner to corner, Waller goes up but gets caught in a back suplex!

But here come the Robert Stone Brand! Stone and Sophia Cromwell walk out here, Briggs fires off hands on Waller Briggs runs, BOOTS Waller, then runs at him in the corner for a clothesline! Then he POUNCES Waller out of the ring! Fans fire up but VON WAGNER shows up! Briggs BOOTS Von, but turns around into the SOMERSAULT STUNNER! Cover, Waller wins!

Winner: Grayson Waller, by pinfall

Waller gets an assist, and now Von goes after Briggs directly! Von throws down hands, then he drags Briggs to the corner. Von SLAMS Briggs’ arm into the post! Brooks rushes out to run Von off before it can get worse! Sophia tells Von to stand down, he did what he came here to do. But will Brooks & Briggs look to break Von’s face like he did their hands?

 

Ivy Nile VS Kiana James!

Diamond Mine’s Female Titan doesn’t much care for Strong’s attitude lately, but she really doesn’t like someone questioning Diamond Mine. Will Ivy crunch the number cruncher? Or will the Professional Professional Wrestler prove her brain can beat the Diamond Pitbull’s brawn?

The bell rings and the two tie right up! Ivy puts Kiana in a corner, Kiana turns it around, but fans chant, “Ivy’s gonna kill~ you!” Kiana lets off as the ref counts and she shoves Ivy! So Ivy shoves Kiana down! Ivy then clamps on with a chinlock and floats around to keep Kiana down. Kiana gets up, but Ivy fireman’s carry takeovers, then drags Kiana back up to wrench the wristlock. Kiana throws body shots but Ivy KICKS her leg. Kiana rolls, kips up, wrenches and fires a forearm! Ivy stays up to swing, but Kiana gets around to CLUB Ivy on the back! And again! Ivy’s just getting mad! She DECKS Kiana! Kiana scrambles away, then YANKS Ivy into buckles!

Kiana stomps Ivy in the corner but fans still chant for Ivy. Ivy gets up, Kiana RAMS into her! Kiana scoops Ivy to SIDEWALK SLAM! Cover, TWO! Kiana clamps onto the shoulders, then the arms. Fans rally for Ivy and she resists. Ivy gets up, arm-drags free, and then sets up to roll and trip Kiana! Ivy runs Kiana over, KICKS away on the legs, the chest, and an ENZIGURI sends Kiana down Fans fire up, Ivy runs around the world to CALF KICK! Cover, TWO! Ivy stalks Kiana, brings her up, but Kiana RAMS Ivy to a corner! Kiana runs in, RAMS into Ivy, then tells her, “You can’t learn that in the gym!” Kiana short arm LARIATS, then says brains always beats brawn!

Kiana suplexes but Ivy blocks! Ivy throws shots, and has the dragon sleeper! But Kiana snapmares free and ghost pins, TWO! Ivy gets up, Kiana CLOBBERS her! Kiana drags Ivy up but Ivy CLOBBERS her right back! Ivy rains down fists, Kiana shoves her away, but Ivy KICKS her in the chest! And again! And then a scoop POWERSLAM! Cover, Ivy wins!

Winner: Ivy Nile, by pinfall

Ivy defied the odds! But wait, here comes Pretty Deadly! And they’re wearing cut up mockeries of the Diamond Mine shirts! “Oh, Ivy. Ivy, well done on your victory tonight. It’s a shame the Creed Brothers can’t share in your jubilation this Saturday at In Your House. Where not only Pretty Deadly are victorious, but we’re the reason they get kicked out of Diamond Mine.” It must break Ivy’s heart, so they ask her: What’re they gonna do when Diamond Mine closes? But the Creeds rush in from the other side! Easy now, easy now. See you on- NOPE, the Creeds hip toss the champs into the ring! They CLOBBER the champs, TOSS and LARIAT the champs back out, and Diamond Mine stands tall! Will the Creeds crush Pretty Deadly under the pressure and be forged in gold?

 

NXT has another message in Italian.

“There are blue chip athletes, and then there is this man. He gives new meaning to the phrase, ‘World-class sportsman.’ Carving through the snow of the Alps with grace and precision, he cascades down the mountain at speeds an ordinary man wouldn’t dare attempt. When everyone feels the need for speed at the movies, he accelerates in real life. Leaving his past in the rearview mirror, he is now behind the wheel of his own destiny. Fine dining for a refined man with a refined palate. Every aspect of his life is exceptional. Style, class and athleticism is coming to NXT. Veni Vidi Vinci.” Giovanni Vinci is on his way to NXT.

 

Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams join commentary!

They want to be ringside for this main event that has the North American Champion in action! But will they simply sit by and watch? Or will they have an influence on the Carolina Cash Money Caveman’s momentum going into In Your House?

Cameron Grimes VS Nathan Frazer!

NXT returns and the British Prodigy makes his entrance. The bell rings and Grimes stares down with Frazer. They circle, fans rally and the two tie up. Grimes waistlocks, SLAMS Frazer, but Frazer has the foot! Grimes gets Frazer’s arm and WRINGS it, but Frazer handsprings through! They circle and Grimes goes for a leg, but Frazer clinches. Grimes wrenches to a wristlock, but Frazer spins and arm-drags, but Grimes holds on to wrangle Frazer. Frazer fight sup, rolls, rolls and handsprings to cartwheel and WRING Grimes! Frazer gets the legs but Grimes kicks him away! Both men kip up and fans cheer the standoff!

Fans cheer, “This is Wrestling!” as the two reset. They tie up, Grimes trips Frazer to cover, but Frazer goes Matrix! Grimes headlocks, Frazer powers up and powers out, but Grimes runs him over! Grimes runs, things speed up and Frazer hurdles to then sidestep and DROPKICK! Grimes bails out and fans fire up as Frazer builds speed. Grimes gets in to EuroUpper! Frazer goes to a corner, Grimes whips corner to corner, but Frazer goes up and over. Frazer handsprings across the ring, elbows back then goes out to shoulder in. Frazer slingshots and runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, to RANA! Grimes bails out again, and Frazer builds speed again!

Frazer has to abort the dive as Grimes gets in the ring! Grimes then PENALTY KICKS Frazer from the apron! Down goes Frazer and fans fire up while NXT goes picture in picture.

Grimes stares Melo down a second before he fetches Frazer. Grimes KICKS Frazer against barriers, then brings him around the way to give Frazer a BOOT! Grimes brings Frazer along more, puts him in the ring just to refresh the count, before hitting an APRON BACK SUPLEX! Grimes is fire dup, fans fire up with him, and Grimes gets in to cover. TWO, and Grimes is annoyed. Grimes keeps on Frazer with a top wristlock but Frazer endures. Frazer fights up, throws body shots, then runs, into a KICK! He’s down again and sputtering while Grimes leans on ropes. Grimes storms up on Frazer, pushes him to a cover, TWO!

Grimes is more annoyed, but he brings Frazer up for a double wristlock. Frazer endures, Grimes digs his elbow into the shoulder, and Grimes wrenches. Frazer throws a forearm, and another, but Grimes wrenches to WRING Frazer out this time. Cover, TWO! Frazer is showing his toughness and Grimes is even more annoyed. NXT returns to single picture as Grimes runs in at the corner, only for Frazer to give him a BUCKLE SHOT! Just like mentor Seth Rollins! Frazer drags himself up but Grimes gets his leg! Grimes spins Frazer to a GERMAN SUPLEX, but Frazer lands on his feet! Frazer ducks, dodges, QUEBRADA to ELBOW DROP DDT!

Fans fire up and chants for “NXT! NXT!” for giving us this main event! Grimes and Frazer get up, Frazer throws forearms but Grimes throws a haymaker! Frazer throws more forearms, but Grimes EuroUppers! Grimes whips but Frazer CLOBBERS him! Frazer starts to rally, he spins Grimes around, but Grimes suplexes to GOURD BUSTER! Grimes runs to CLOBBER Frazer! And again! Frazer goes to a corner, Grimes runs in, but into a SUPERKICK! Fans fire up as Frazer drags himself to a corner. “This is Awesome!” and Frazer RUNNING SHOOTING STARS onto knees! Grimes waistlocks, fans are loving “Both These Guys!” but Frazer victory rolls, TWO!!

Grimes swings, Frazer dodges, but Grimes avoids the Quebrada! Frazer runs into an URENAGE! Cover, TWO!! Frazer survives and Grimes is beside himself, but the fans are still loving “NXT! NXT!” Melo likes what he’s seeing, too, because this is taking it out of Grimes. Grimes and Frazer throws forearms from their knees, fans hope they “FIGHT FOREVER!” The CHOPS and the forearms and the uppercuts keep going back and forth! Grimes ROCKS Frazer, but Frazer gives it back! Grimes KICKS Frazer down, but Frazer comes back with forearms! Grimes ROCKS Frazer again, but Frazer PELES! Frazer then runs, into a LARIAT!

Grimes gets Frazer up, but Frazer RANAS out of the bomb!! Cover, TWO!! Grimes escapes and fans say that had to be three! But Frazer just shrugs that off, builds speed again and DIVES! Direct hit at the ramp! Melo says Frazer is crazy! Frazer puts Grimes in, then he goes to a corner. Frazer climbs, but Grimes goes up after him! SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX!! Grimes sets up, “TO! THE! MOON!” CAVE-IN!! Cover, Grimes wins!

Winner: Cameron Grimes, by pinfall

Melo is bummed now, but he also gets off commentary! Trick rushes in first, but gets tossed! Melo and Grimes throw hands, Grimes whips but Trick saves Melo from a Cave-In! Grimes is sending Melo running for now, but will Melo be returning home with the title? Or can Grimes stay golden and meet Solo for the summer?


My Thoughts:

What a great go-home for NXT here! Now, on one hand, we didn’t get flooded with recap videos no one needs. On another, it has been some time since we’ve gotten Prime Target video, and I would’ve loved to have gotten one for Bron and Gacy. Might’ve worked to undo some of the cheesy stuff we got tonight. Gacy’s laugh and the flickering of the lights just to “trigger” Bron was so corny, Prime Target profiling Bron and the Steiner family but also Gacy’s journey to this character would’ve been way better. But all that said, it feels like Bron is going to find a way to retain this title, as he’ll expect all the tricks Gacy will use to egg him on. Also I’d love if Gacy’s goons are replaced by the Steiner Brothers so that they swerve Gacy back.

Great opening from Diamond Mine, and Strong is so close to getting himself kicked out of the group. Great booking of the match where the Creeds try to help Strong like he “helped” them, and then Strong gets mad at them for it. Good story integration to have Kiana pick a fight with Ivy over it, and of course Ivy gets a win here. Pretty Deadly dressing up as flamboyant Diamond Mine members was a great part of their promo, and the Creeds going after them was a good response. I have a feeling Pretty Deadly retains, because even though they won the match, the Creeds get the last bit of momentum.

I was hoping the NXT Women’s Breakout Finals were tonight, or at In Your House, but nope. That’ll be next week, so we won’t get the winner cashing in on whoever wins the women’s title matches this Saturday. That’s a mistake to me but I suppose at the same time, Tiffany VS Roxie isn’t TakeOver level. They both had good promo vignettes, especially Tiffany talking trash on Roxie’s. But I have a feeling Roxie wins, given how the Women’s Championship Summit segment went. Good promos from both sides, and the fans loved all the burns KC Squared gave Toxic Attraction. But with Wendy & KC Squared all standing tall and holding onto the belts, they’re doomed to lose. Roxie can then step up to challenge Mandy via her Breakout contract.

Great tie-in for the Breakout story and Waller’s relationship with Tiffany. Waller talking trash and getting himself in trouble was a good way to give him a match with Briggs, and they had a very good match, even with the Robert Stone Brand getting involved. That’s gotta be a Six Person Tag of Von, Stone and Sophia VS Briggs, Brooks & Fallon. Giovanni’s newest vignette all but said this is Fabian Aichner’s new identity, so that’s pretty wild that this is where he’s going after leaving Imperium. And I just knew Thea Hail would choose Chase U. She is going to be a great addition to that stable, we could even see them get in on a Mixed Six Tag at some point.

Wes Lee getting the win on Xyon was a great turnaround of their story. I bet we’ll see their tiebreaker very soon and with Sanga getting in on the story, I bet Sanga saves Wes from Xyon’s sore loser attack to give us Xyon VS Sanga. We got a fairly good promo skit from Legado and The Don’s family, but of course we were getting a Six Man Tag. The stipulation of the losing faction folding, this might go either way, but I feel like fans are going to crap all over Legado folding into Tony’s team. The fans in Florida have loved Legado the entire time, even with them as Heels, they are not gonna be happy with Tony being the boss of them.

Cora VS Lopez was good but felt a little sloppy. Maybe these two needed more time to blend together in the ring but I had a feeling Cora was going to pull off the win. Cora’s story is going to take the long route, and there’s half a chance Roxie uses her Breakout Contract to get the both of them a tag title match. Hell, if Io Shirai & KLR can use the Dusty Cup to get a singles shot, we might as well make up for that by giving the tag champions some challengers. And good stuff from Solo VS Duke. Solo of course wins so he has momentum going into his North American Championship since he’s got next.

And speaking of, what an awesome main event from Grimes VS Frazer. Melo & Trick were on commentary so they could attack after, but they probably wanted to see this for themselves anyway. I said this when he was Ben Carter and had that match with Lee Johnson in AEW, and I’ll say it here again for Nathan Frazer: he is the future of pro-wrestling. So long as WWE doesn’t screw this up royally, at least. Frazer needs to be in a title scene before this year is out, he’d be amazing as North American or even THE NXT Champion.

My Score: 8.7/10

Andrew’s TNA iMPACT! Results & Match Ratings: 4.18.2024

Motor City Machine Guns either go out on their backs, or head to Rebellion as champs! Lets see how they finish their current run in TNA!

Published

on

No burying the lead here! The Main Event is The System versus Motor City Machine Guns, and it’s the Go Home episode before Rebellion! So we’re guaranteed a damn good tag match, and we should get either new wrinkles, or ways to keep the storylines cooking going into the Pay-per-View.

With all the rumors and innuendo about the Guns being on their way out, I think we all assume that MCMG is losing, but my inner fanboy is still excited.

Ratings:

  • Little Guido w/New FBI vs Hammerstone: Hammerstone wins via Torture Rack – SQUASH
  • LSG vs Joe Hendry: Hendry wins via Standing Ovation – SQUASH
  • Mustafa Ali & GYV vs Cody Deaner, Jake Something & Rhyno: Ali wins via 450 Splash – ** 3/4
  • Rosemary w/Havok vs Jody Threat w/Dani Luna: Rosemary wins via Spear – ***
  • Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) w/Alisha Edwards: System wins via Roster Cut + Knee Party – *** 1/4

 

Results:

So we kick off the match with Josh coming out to commentary again to watch Hammerstone’s match. They really need a new way to try and keep heat without reusing the same tired gimmick of “ring side seat” to a Squash match.

Little Guido w/New FBI vs Hammerstone

Guido tries to shoot the half, but Hammerstone shrugs him off, lifts him like a child and runs him into a corner, few short shots and then just tosses him across the ring. Hammer gets a little distracted talking smack to Josh and eats a foot, but then tosses Guido with the ole Sack of Shit move and keeps working over Guido.

Hammer shoves Clayton, and provokes him to push him back right in front of the referee. She ejects them, Guido tries to take advantage but when he goes for the pinfall Hammer kicks out immediately and presses Guido out of thing through the ropes. Continues to dog walk Guido, puts the head gear on the ECW Original and then Torture Racks him while staring directly at Josh, and of course picks up the submission victory.

LSG vs Joe Hendry

Hendry cuts a little promo, mentioning the Fat Uncle Phil joke…something about shopping at the TOP Dollar Store. Solid mic work.

LSG is a damn good local talent, he’s been seen in ROH and AEW in the past (perhaps others, but that’s what comes to mind immediately for me), but we all know this is an enhancement match. A few nice chain wrestling spots early, but Hendry uses his power to stop the smaller wrestler, Sack of Shit into Standing Ovation and the match is over quickly.

Mustafa Ali & GYV vs Cody Deaner, Jake Something & Rhyno

Well okay, having Deaner ask the crowd if they wanted a 3v2 or their third member…RHYNO…is pretty much a no brainer in Philly. But at least the gimmick isn’t quite as cringe as I expected.

Jake starts with Zack Gibson and throws him around. Jake goes for the tag and Deaner asks the crowd who Jake should tag, and the crowd picks Rhyno. Rhyno Whips Gibson into a corner, Drake actually softens the impact, allowing Gibson to fire back, tag out, but Rhyno levels both GYV members and then even knocks Ali off the apron. Rhyno tries to call to the crowd to tag in Deaner and that goes over like a fart in church. He tags him in anyway, and the crowd is kinda dead and doing whatever it wants after the obvious ECW chants when Rhyno tagged in.

GYV take a couple lumps but they of course start to work over Deaner and capture some momentum. Solid tandem work from GYV, they cut off Deaner from making a tag and goad Jake a little to cause the ref to block off the babyfaces so the heels can take a few shortcuts. Cody eventually makes the tag to Rhyno, hot tag, he tries to set up the Gore but the GYV manage to stop him in his tracks and hit an Enzuigiri to daze the Man Beast, he falls to his corner and Jake tags himself in. Jake literally runs them all over, tags in Cody and Launches him from the Top Rope into Zack Gibson. Ali makes the save and Jake tries to get his hands on Ali, but the GYV keep throwing themselves at him, literally. The triple team finally gets the best of Jake, they hit 3 Dives and then post Jake, so they gather around Cody like hyenas.

They forgot about Rhyno, he’s set up for a Gore, he Gores Drake, Gibson and Ali take out Rhyno, but then Cody starts to fight back. Ali stops Deaner’s offense with an Avalanche Sunset Bomb, then hits his 450 Splash. Jake barely misses being able to break up the pin.

Rosemary w/Havok vs Jody Threat w/Dani Luna

Jody tries to start quickly with Shoulder Tackles, Lariats and Scoop Slams, and it does seem somewhat effective. Rosemary is having trouble finding offense against the intensity, but she keeps kicking out. Shotgun Dropkick finally gives Rosemary an opening, she goes into full mount and rains down strikes. Rosemary shoves Jody into a corner and Bites her in the corner. Jody tries to fight out, they go across and Rosemary catches her with the legs and puts her in the Upside Down. Splash in the corner from Rosemary, Exploder Suplex and Jody is eating a lot of offense.

Rosemary looks like she’s caught after she gets tripped up into the ropes and Jody goes for her Rope Knee into the German, but Rosemary dodges. Rosemary hits her own suplex and pulls out a beautiful Last Chancery! I haven’t seen her do that in a long time. Jody manages to fight to the ropes, Rosemary is a little slow to capitalize and eats a Pump Kick. Rosemary goes flying into the ropes, Jody hits the Double Knees into the German this time for 2, and they trade a few haymakers after that. Jody folds Rosemary with a low Lariat, Zombie rise spot a few times, Jody goes for a pinfall and Rosemary kicks out.

Havok jumps up on the apron, Dani meets her and they decide to step down, but the distraction was enough. Jody turns around and eats a Spear. Rosemary wins!

Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) vs The System (Eddie Edwards & Brian Myers) w/Alisha Edwards

Eddie and Shelley start off, and its a very simple slow start. Mostly an early stalemate, the typical Japanese style the TNA seem to love to employ. Starters tag out, but then Shelley with the blind tag, Sabin Baseball Slides out, picks Eddie’s ankle and sends his face bouncing off the apron, while Shelley sneaks up being Myers and they hit a tandem move before we cut to commercial. Off of the commercial it looks like Eddie and Myers regained control. But a nice Jawbreaker from Shelley sends Eddie falling back into the MCMG corner. Dragon Screws to both legs from Sabin and Shelley, and we get the Dragon Screw dissection spot for the Guns.

Myers gets sick of things, tries to get involved, but Simultaneous Figure Fours from the MCMG makes The System look silly. Alisha does the classic “push the rope forward” gimmick to assist Eddie in breaking the hold. She keeps chirping at Shelley until she finally grabs his foot. Shelley doesn’t take kindly, tries to grab her by the hair but she gets away, Shelley eats a strike and falls back to the ropes so Lish can just throttle him with the rope, Sabin walks over and acts like he’s going to PK her and the look of disgust on her face is hilarious, like “how dare he threaten to kick her”. Would I be mad is Masha decides to team with Lish and they win the Knockouts Tag titles? No, because the Knockouts Tags are trash. But I still prefer Lish as valet/manager.

Shelley starts fighting back after another commercial break, Eddie tries to cut him off, but Sabin clocks Eddie and Shelley manages to make the tag and Sabin comes in. Lights up both System members, Kick off Tornado DDT, into a Running Gamengiri. Eddie tries to counter but Shelley assists, tandem strikes, Double Baseball Slide into the classic MCMG spot 5 Hole Dive! Keeping up with the classics Shelley stacks the System members on each other and hit the Missile Dropkick/Flatliner spot. As the Guns are rolling, Sabin accidentally catches Sabin with his foot and The System take control! They hit their pieces of the System Overload spot, but Sabin kicks out. Roster Cut attempt from Myers, but Shelley is back. High Speed Dirt, Machine Gun Sandwich, but Lish grabs Shelley’s foot when they’re setting up Skull and Bones. Shelley gets dropped on the turnbuckle and thrown out, Sabin eats the Roster Cut followed up with Boston Knee Party and System retains!

Its a little weird to have had the two commercial cuts and the fact there’s still Nic Nemeth to follow. So it feels a little flat, I hope this wasn’t their swan song match, because it was nice to see some classic spots, but it was entirely too abbreviated. 

Nemeth comes out, goes into the crowd and finds a kid with a kendo stick and borrows a beer from someone, so he does a bit of a Sandman tribute. Moose cuts off his promo basically immediately. He throws out the “can’t beat the system” line again, and Nic rolls with the punches well. Moose uses a few cute analogies about Nic having a failure laden past, but Nemeth bites back and its really damn good. He says he can see it in Moose’s eyes that he thinks he’s getting in the ring with Dolph Ziggler, but no, there is no more old Dolph Ziggler, just the new Nic Nemeth. And Moose’s cool seems to be slightly shaken after those words. Good promo.

Overall Score: 6.5/10

So this was okay, if it didn’t end as strongly as it did, I would’ve rated this much lower. Two squash matches in the beginning, reusing the Josh comes out to the announce table to watch trope is boring, hell even Clayton’s shove to Hammerstone was super lame looking. The Deaner match was luke warm at best, but things picked up around the Rosemary match.

Lets also not overlook the segments with ASH & Xia, Jonathan Gresham’s whole deal and EY having to return to the violence/sickness/world class maniac, whatever you want to call it, were all great building blocks. This definitely wasn’t what I would call a strong Go Home, but it didn’t hurt things for Rebellion. The whole injury of Cardona was addressed, which honestly sounded weird since Jordynne basically said she was expecting them to have a backup plan so she has a backup plan. I don’t really like how that video package came across.

But who knows, all I know is, this wasn’t an awful episode, it just wasn’t really strong either.  Here’s to hoping Rebellion Saturday is still strong.
