Or will luck have nothing to do with him getting SMASHED by the Tribal Chief?

 

Steel Cage Match: Drew McIntyre VS Karrion Kross w/ Scarlett Bordeaux!

The Scottish Warrior was screwed out of a Strap Match by way of Scarlett’s pepper spray, and he isn’t going to let Mr. & Mrs. Doomsday get away with that! Will the cage keep Scarlett and her trickery out of the equation? Or will Kross find a way to win again?

Another van arrives at the arena.

And this one is the Bloodline’s! Solo Sikoa opens the door for The Tribal Chief! He and the Usos head in, and Byron interviews them. What’s Roman’s response to Logan saying all it takes is one lucky punch? Roman gives no comment. Solo glares at Byron, then pushes the mic away. Paul Heyman also looks at Byron, and he mocks the phrase, “One lucky punch~!” And Logan’s brother, Jake, is here. Logan has steel pins in his hand, HBK taught him how to wrestle, but the greatest offensive player is also the greatest defensive player. Logan will never hit that “one lucky punch.” Will Heyman’s words come true tonight?

Raw Women’s Championship Last Woman Standing: Bianca Belair VS Bayley!

Bianca stands at 6 but Bayley starts looking under the ring again. She brings out a TABLE! Fans love that! Bayley starts setting it up, she stomps Bianca, then she finishes standing the table up at ringside. The table is tricky, Bayley has to make sure it stays up, then she brings it closer to Bianca.

Winner: Bianca Belair (still Raw Women’s Champion)

The most savagely innovative match in a long time, and it’s the toughEST who wins out! How will DMG CTRL be able to take control if they don’t have the top belt?

 

The lights go out!

The “fireflies” are out as they anticipate his entrance. The music plays, the door is glowing and even smoky. The door opens, and out walks Bray Wyatt! Bray makes his way to the ring, blows the lantern out, and the spotlight is on him. Fans chant “Welcome Back!” as he gets the mic. “My name is Bray Wyatt. There was a time where I would’ve done just about anything to make sure that when you left this building tonight, you knew exactly who I am. Something a lot of you probably don’t know, but I come from a very prestigious family. A wrestling family. And some might say, they are even larger than life. And so, from the time I was a little child, all I ever wanted to be was great.

“But great wasn’t good enough. I had to be greater than the rest of them. I had to be the greatest of all of them! And so…” Fans chant, “Yes, You Are!” and Bray appreciates that. But that’s the point, right? He did what he thought he needed to do. He gave in. “I gave in so much that I made a monster of myself. And I wore that mask with pride. It didn’t take me long to understand that while I was wearing that mask, I no longer felt pain. I no longer could be afraid! In the mask, I was completely untouchable. And that type of thing, it feels good. Some might say sensations like that are just about impossible to quit.

“And that’s how I felt. I found myself in a kingdom of nothingness, sitting on an island by myself. And this monster I had made myself into, he destroyed me. He ran off everyone that I ever loved! So there I sat, alone, no one to love me, nowhere to run. Alone.” Fans chant, “We Love You!” Bray says that’s the thing, no one really loves him. They love the idea of him! The things that he’s capable of! “I don’t even love me! But this doesn’t have to be the ending of my story. That is not the man that I want to be remembered as. My name is Bray Wyatt. My name is BRAY WYATT! MY NAME IS BRAY WYATT!!! And I am here to rewrite the ending to my story.”

Fans cheer, but the tron starts up. “Why, why, why wear a mask? Hurt them. Why? It must hurt forcing yourself to be someone you’re not. You can fool them, but you can’t fool me. Do it. Hurt them. Who knows you better than I do? Do you think they’ll still love you if they knew the truth? They don’t deserve you. The truth is, you’re gonna go too far. You’re gonna give in. So why wait? Because when you do, just remember how good it feels. And oh, it’s gonna feel so good. So good. Do it. And if you’re worried about the aftermath, just don’t take the mask off. Tell me I’m wrong.” Uncle Howdy seems to see through Bray, but what is the truth?

 

Undisputed WWE Universal Championship: Roman Reigns w/ The Bloodline VS Logan Paul w/ Jake Paul!

A career defining two years goes up against a career of only two matches. But the ImPAULsive Influencer has done more with that than just about anyone. He also has a heavy right hand thanks to metal pins inside it. Will that be all Logan Paul needs to completely flip the WWE upside-down? Or will Logan’s confidence come crumbling down the moment he steps onto the Island of Relevancy?

Roman of course takes his time, raising the belts at the ramp for the pyro. Roman and Heyman then go to the ring, and Roman raises the belts again for more pyro. The introductions are made, the belts are raised once more, and we see who is ACKNOWLEDGED in the end!

The bell rings and fans fire up as Logan stares down with Roman. They circle slowly, fans duel, but most are on Roman’s side. They tie up, are in a deadlock, but Roman shoves Logan away. Roman grins and raises the finger. Fans are torn and that upsets Roman. Logan and Roman circle again, tie up and are in another deadlock. They go around, Logan manages to push Roman back but Roman turns it to put Logan in a corner. The ref calls the break as both men push at each other. Logan gets in Roman’s face, Roman shoves Logan, but Logan shoves back! Fans rally up, Roman and Logan circle again, and Roman is getting riled up by the fans.

Roman storms up, he waistlocks, but Logan switches. Logan hits a SLAM! Logan holds on, but Roman switches back to SLAM Logan! Logan staggers up, Roman waistlocks again, but Logan shifts to fireman’s carry takeover! Logan is outwrestling Roman, but Roman DECKS Logan with an uppercut! Fans are torn as Longa stands. Roman dodges the haymaker and slips out of the ring. Is Roman worried about that metal loaded hand? Heyman cools Roman off, and Roman takes a stroll around the way. Roman gets a drink of water, swaggers and smiles, and he takes time to high-five some fans. Roman then goes back to the ring and he wants the fans to hush a bit.

Roman and Logan reset, Logan tells Roman to stop running away. Logan and Roman circle, tie up, and Roman gets a clinch! Roman puts Logan in a corner, Logan fights but the ref calls the ropebreak. Roman gets a cheap body shot in! Roman whips and elbows Logan down! Roman paces around, toying with Logan now. Roman drags Logan up, snap suplexes and covers, ONE!! Roman grins but he might be taking Logan easy here. Logan stands, Roman CLUBS him down. Fans rally and duel but Roman is confused. Roman brings Logan up to back suplex, but Logan lands on his feet! Logan throws body shots! Roman headlocks, Logan powers out but Roman runs him over!

Things speed up, Logan leap frogs and hip tosses Roman down! Roman is shocked, but Logan runs in to clothesline Roman out! Logan fires up and Heyman is shocked! Roman is still steadying himself but Logan goes out after him! Logan runs in, into a kick from Roman! Roman whips Logan over the barriers! Logan is in the timekeeper’s area and Roman grins. Roman raises the finger, #HeTheOne, but then he turns around into a CROSSBODY! Logan evens things with agility, and he drags Roman up and into the ring. Heyman is worried as Logan aims from the apron. Logan slingshots to LARIAT! Cover, TWO!!

Roman survives Logan’s Buckshot and gets to a corner. Logan goes to the other, he runs in corner to corner, but Roman puts him on the apron. Logan HOTSHOTS Roman back! Logan jumps right up, springboards, into an UPPERCUT! Roman takes Logan out of the sky but Roman is down as he sputters. Heyman shouts, “Rise up, My Tribal Chief! You are the Head of the Table! You are the Greatest of All Time!” Fans rally up as both men slowly rise. Roman stands while Logan crawls, and Roman stomps Logan down. Roman stomps Logan again, fans sing and chant but Roman wants them to quiet down.

Roman stomps Logan around more, drags Logan up and gets around to a BIG back suplex! Roman drags Logan from the ropes to then cover, ONE!! Logan is still hanging tough and Roman is almost amused. Roman mocks the fans cheering Logan on and then he clamps on a chinlock. Logan endures but Roman squeezes tight. Logan fights, fans rally, but Roman says, “I got him, I got him.” Roman leans on the hold and he grinds Logan down. Logan still fights and gets up to his feet. Logan throws body shots! Roman throws Logan into the corner! Roman fires off the point-blank lariats! Roman goes all the way to TEN, then runs side to side, to LEAPING LARIAT! Cover, ONE?!?

Roman can’t believe Logan is still kicking out that early. “This is Awesome!” as Roman stands up again. Roman looms over Logan, drags him up, and CLUBS him down. Roman smirks and brings Logan up into a camel clutch! Logan endures, gets one arm free but Roman keeps the other.

Fans fire up as Logan drags Roman up and puts him on the desk. Logan then high-fives his boys at ringside, and he films Roman with a smartphone. Logan goes up into the ring, he films the fans as they fire up, and Logan climbs up the corner. VLOGGING FROG SPLASH THROUGH THE TABLE!!!

Jake helps Logan up and Jake watches everyone else. Logan hurries back in, but Roman SUPERMAN PUNCHES Logan!! Roman goes to the corner, “OOOAH~!” SPEAR!!! Cover, Roman wins!!

Winner: Roman Reigns, by pinfall (still Undisputed WWE Universal Champion)

Logan Paul came the closest anyone, and certainly anyone with only three matches in his WWE career, has ever come! But the numbers game continues to be in the Tribal Chief’s favor as his cousins beat Logan’s boys. The reign continues into 797 days! Will Roman reach historic heights with his Bloodline always behind him?


My Thoughts:

A great Crown Jewel here, and visually one of the better because they introduced these drones with LEDs on them and they did these really awesome displays in the sky for entrances. But that aside, also some surprises in the results. Lashley VS Lesnar was a really good opener, a lot of ebb and flow, but Lesnar snatching that victory surely means we get a tiebreaker. I feel like they could go again for the Royal Rumble, but maybe they’ll go even sooner and have it be Survivor Series in three weeks. Either way, that tiebreaker could go either way, but as I was saying on Raw, Lashley should win it. Lesnar gets very little winning this when he’s already had a Universal title match with Roman and lost. Lashley winning can get him up to the Universal title, or at least back to a midcard title, by WrestleMania time.

Another surprise was DMG CTRL winning the belts back so soon while Bayley doesn’t win against Bianca. I thought it would go the other way for those matches so that there wouldn’t be any “hot potato” with the titles. But we get great matches from both women’s titles, especially that Last Woman Standing. That had to have been the most creative Last Person Standing match anywhere ever. And Nikki Cross screwing over Alexa & Asuka was another great surprise, but it’s not clear if she joined DMG CTRL or is just doing her own stuff. I still think Survivor Series: WarGames should be Winners Take All, but maybe Nikki brings in “Doudrop” Piper Niven and a third member?

Really good cage match, especially given it was a cage match and those still feel used up. As such, of course Scarlett gets involved, but it was clever that she forgot escaping the cage means more than just the door. But like with Lesnar and Lashley, we’ll surely get another match. That will probably be at Survivor Series, but not in a WarGames match. It might even be another stipulation, but it really should just have “Scarlett is banned from ringside.” The Six Man Tag was really good, but of course Rhea was the reason Judgement (or I guess Judgment) Day won again. She had the same hairstyle Beth Phoenix had, that’s definitely a sign Beth is returning to have a match with her.

Braun VS Omos was really good stuff, and Omos really got to show he can talk trash and do stuff without a manager. But Braun wins out with one powerslam to establish the strength of that move. Who knows if this is just the beginning of a series, but I can’t be sure where either guy goes next. Bray Wyatt had another really good promo with Uncle Howdy, though it didn’t really add that much other than Bray establishing his real-life family’s wrestling history. But I suppose this was a good chance to move the story forward another step. And it’s also curious but I think Howdy was wearing the other mask of “Uncle Harper.” I wonder if Bray enters his Three Faces of Foley phase here, being Bray, Howdy and Harper.

And of course, great stuff out of the Bloodline. Great tag match of Usos and Brutes, the Brutes looked awesome, but I had a feeling the Usos would retain here. And with the Universal Championship, of course the Bloodline helped Roman win by distracting Logan, but even so, Logan Paul looked great here. Like him or not, Logan Paul has the athletic ability and the charisma to be a great wrestler. I don’t know if Jake’s going to stick around, but I wouldn’t be surprised if WWE tries to rope the Paul brothers into something tag team related.

My Score: 8.8/10

Backstage interview with Chase U.

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

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

 

Ethan Page talks with Ava Raine in her office.

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

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

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

 

The Great American Bash returns!

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

 

Roxanne Perez is here!

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Kelani Jordan.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Lola Vice.

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

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Winner: Je’Von Evans, by pinfall

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

 

The D’Angelo Family is playing cards backstage.

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

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

 

Backstage interview with Dante Chen.

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

 

Trick Williams vents backstage.

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

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

 

NXT Championship: Ethan Page VS Dante Chen!

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

 

Duke Hudson speaks.

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

 

NXT has BIG events coming!

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

 

Gallus regroups backstage.

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

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

 

Izzi Dame VS Tatum Paxley!

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

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

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

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

Winner: Tatum Paxley, by pinfall

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

 

Thea and Ridge regroup backstage.

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

 

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

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

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

 

Lola Vice VS Jacy Jayne w/ Jazmyn Nyx!

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

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

Jacy wrenches that arm, WRINGS it out, then drags Lola around again. Jacy SLAMS the bad hand on the mat, then clamps on again. Jacy SLAMS the hand, grabs at it again, then steps over for a DISARM-HER! Jacy bends the fingers, but Lola endures and fights up. Jacy wristlocks and swings, but Lola dodges to KICK! And KICK! And KICK! Then she fires LIGHTNING KICKS! The fans fire up with Lola and she AX KICKS Jacy! Jacy crawls to a corner, Lola says “I’m a Latina~!” And then HIP ATTACK! Cover, TWO! Jacy survives but Lola facelocks. Jacy fights up, JAWBREAKERS, and then BOOTS Lola down!

That was a knockout to be sure, but then Fallon Henley CLOBBERS Lola from behind! The Toxic Cowgirl has Jazmyn get in and they mug Lola. But Lola fights back! BODY SHOT for Fallon, but Jacy DECKS Lola! But here come Karmen Petrovic and Sol Ruca! Sol DOUBLE LARIATS Fallon & Jazmyn! Sol then dodges Jacy for Karmen to ROUNDHOUSE! Lola SUPERKICKS Fallon, Karmen LARIATS Jazmyn! Then SUPERKICKS send them all tumbling! Jacy returns, but gets DOUBLE SUPERKICKS and a ROUNDHOUSE! The toxic trio just found these “rookies” aren’t pushovers. Will Fallon, Jacy & Jazmyn soon be humbled by this new wave of talent?

 

Tatum plays around backstage.

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

 

NXT Media catches up with Ethan Page.

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

 

Mixed Six Tag: The OC VS OTM!

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

NXT returns and The OC make their entrance. The trios start talking trash and pushing each other, and then the brawl is on! The fans fire up, the ref wants order, but while Nima and Price DECK Gallows & Anderson, Mia fires off on Miss Parker! And then the Good Brothers drag Nima & Price out! The bell rings, Mia CHOPS and ROCKS and RAMS into Jaida again and again! Mia whips corner to corner, runs corner to corner, but Jaida dodges the boot!

Charlie Dempsey regroups with the No Quarter Catch Crew.

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

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

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

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

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

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally and duel as the two tie up, and they go around in a deadlock. Oba pushes Duke to a corner but Duke gets away.

The fans fire up, as does Thea, and Duke stands tall while NXT goes picture in picture.

Oba snarls but he’s also a bit amused. Oba gets up on the apron and steps back inside. The two circle, feel out a knuckle lock, and go shoulder to shoulder in a Test of Strength.

Duke falls back, the ref checks him, and Duke is okay to continue. Oba throws down hands, but Duke reaches up. Oba knocks him back down, KICKS him in the side, then has him in a corner.

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

 

Jensen storms out of the building, Briggs following.

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

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


My Thoughts:

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

My Score: 8.8/10
