PLAY BY PLAY

Tiffany Stratton speaks.

“I’m ready. Tiffany’s Epiphanies, Roadblock Edition. I can’t believe we are 25 days away from NXT Stand & Deliver. But a ton of superstars have some serious roadblocks standing in their way between here and Los Angeles. Starting with Dijak and Tony D’Angelo in a Jailhouse Street Fight. The loser will be locked in a cell. How humiliating. Boys, use anything and everything you can get your hands on to prevent yourselves from becoming a meme. Can we talk about Toxic Attraction real quick? Jacy Jayne, Gigi Dolin. The break-up, so tragic. The backstab, brutal. The return, ruthless. Personally, I think this should’ve happened sooner. These girls are gonna rip each other apart.

“And I’m just obsessed with what Grayson Waller’s doing right now. But I kinda think he’s pissed off Shawn Michaels. Don’t push HBK too far, or else he’s got two words for ya. A Six Man Tag Team match for respect. A one on one battle of leadership. And culminating with our main event: Roxanne Perez defends her NXT Women’s Championship against Meiko Satomura. Our champion’s the underdog. The challenger is a living legend. And I will be watching very closely, because whomever walks out as champion, I’ll see you in LA. All roads lead to the City of Angels, my kind of town.

“In this case, it isn’t about the journey, it’s totally about the destination. Tootles!” Daddy’s Little Rich Girl is ready for gold, but who makes it through to Stand & Deliver?

 

Jailhouse Street Fight: DIJAK VS Tony D’Angelo w/ Channing Lorenzo!

Backstage interview with Roxanne Perez.

McKenzie Mitchell is with the NXT Women’s Champion, and says this is her biggest challenge tonight. How is she feeling? Pretty anxious. Roxie’s been dreaming of this since six months ago when Meiko beat her. And obviously, Roxie wants a different outcome. She has busted her ass to make sure it will be different. Meiko will test her, but that is why Roxie has exhausted all her resources at the Performance Center. She has worked harder than ever before, pushed past her physical limits, and done everything she can do. She knows that this isn’t her first title defense, but it is the biggest.

One, because she wants- No, she NEEDS to walk into Stand & Deliver. And if that’s not pressure enough, she has to beat a living legend! Not many people can claim a win over Meiko, so beating her would be as big as when Roxie won the title. Roxie is anxious, nervous, her heart is beating out of her chest, but she is ready. And she will leave it all in that ring to keep the title. Will the Prodigy be gamer enough to beat the Final Boss?

 

Kiana James is in her office.

She has Gina reschedule some things and Josh Briggs walks in. He heard she had a new office, but wow, this is nice. Business is great. Gina heads out and Kiana asks what’s up. Briggs isn’t trying to get in anyone’s business, but she knows that Fallon and Brooks mean the world to him. Their happiness is his happiness. She understands. Brooks’ happiness is her happiness, too. And it finally feels like her and Fallon are clicking. Yeah, that’s good, but it just seems like Jensen hasn’t gotten over what happened on Valentine’s Day. The roses clearly means he likes her. Kiana snatches the card away and puts it in a folder.

She knows Brooks has a big heart, how can you not love him? Briggs says Jensen loves Kiana so much, he’d die for her. He’d get hit by a bus just so she could cross the street. Briggs just wants Jensen to be happy, and Kiana is his happiness. Kiana admits, things have been off. And some acquisitions fell into her lap, so she’s busy at work. But she just wants to make this right. Then she has to take the lead. Jensen is terrified to make a mistake. Aw, she didn’t know that. She appreciates Briggs looking out for his best friend. He promised to do right by him, so here he is. Kiana says she’ll give Jensen a call for a make-up date. Okay, sounds good.

Briggs heads out but Kiana seems nervous about the card. Are things all good between the lovebirds?

 

Gallus is in the ring.

The NXT Tag Team Champions have the mics, and Mark Coffey tells Pretty Deadly, “It’s one thing to talk tough when you’re all alone. It’s an entirely different thing when you’re in front of the Gallus boys. Come prove us wrong.” Wolfgang agrees, and tells Elton & Kit, “After what you did, there’s a receipt waiting on you two English rejects! Come and get it!” Pretty Deadly make their entrance, but they’re on the perch! Elton gloats that the English chaps are standing tall for the Scottish to look up to, like it’s always been. Mark is confused, he thought they wanted a “chin wag,” a talk face to face. What, have they changed their minds?

Oh, dear, dear Markus. Pretty Deadly can see their ugly, disgusting, sweaty faces. But this is a face to face. OH SHUT UP! Wolfgang asks what they have to do to get Pretty Deadly in the ring when they always run away. Oh, that Wolfgang is so to the point. No nonsense. Rather harsh, but they admire that. And it’s obvious what they want: the precious tag team titles! Pretty Deadly had those stolen from them! And just as they were on the precipice to take them back, Gallus stepped in and ruined their lives! Mark says Gallus didn’t come back for Pretty Deadly. They came back for each and every single team in NXT! In the ring, at the bar, or in the street, if there’s a fight, you can beat mark and Wolfie will be there!

Now, Pretty Deadly roughed them up. They can’t live without the belts? Then here’s the deal. Gallus dares Pretty Deadly to come and take them! Well then, that sounds like a spiffy idea! They’ll give Gallus a jolly good thrashing, right now! Oh, okay. Mark keeps Wolfie calm as Elton & Kit get in the ring. But then Wolfgang SLINGSHOTS them both in! Mark DECKS Kit! Wolfgang DECKS Elton! Then Mark adds onto Elton! Kit gets run off, Elton gets a back drop! Gallus whips Elton but Elton bails out! Pretty Deadly regroups and vows this will be the last time Gallus gets one over on them! But which team will stand and deliver when they go 2v2?

 

Lyra Valkyria speaks.

“Whether decided by intent, or a tapestry of fate, a randomizer landed on my name. To some, knowledge is power. But I didn’t come to NXT to seek information. I came to seek a battle. I delved into this new realm wanting to ascend. And after dealing with the swallows and the sheer waters, the skies have opened up, and my eye is on the NXT Women’s Championship. Meiko Satomura, our flight paths have crossed before. But next time, the course will be corrected. Roxanne Perez, we’ve been on very different journeys, but fate will ultimately decide if we collide. Whoever is NXT Women’s Champion, remember, I only travel as the crow flies: straight to the top.”

It seems Tiffany isn’t the only one wanting something shiny. Will the Morrigan have to contend with the spoiled brat before going after the spoils?

 

Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“The eyes are the window to the soul. But JD McDonagh, you have no soul. You discover happiness by inflicting anguish. Enjoyment for you comes from… Snapping bones and breaking a man’s spirit. But no matter the depths you go to find serenity, you will never break my will. Because the Czar is UN! BE! SIEG! BAR!” Will Dragunov be the one who breaks the Irish Ace?

Winners: Bron Breakker & The Creed Brothers, by pinfall

A big win for the NXT Champion and Diamond Mine! Jinder and Indus Sher won’t get the respect they want, will they let this one go?

 

Shawn Michaels takes off his headset.

Matt Bloom, aka A-Train, asks HBK if he really wants to go through with this. He’s not sure, but he feels he has to. He appreciates A-Train worrying about him, but he’s got this. Will the Showstopper let the Grayson Waller Effect affect him?

 

NXT presents The Grayson Waller Effect.

The 21st Century Success Story is in the ring for the “most important” episode yet! And he doesn’t have time for the fans’ questions, this is about him being face to face with his guest. Ladies and gentlemen, the Heartbreak Kid, Shawn Michaels! HBK makes his entrance and fans fire up, but Waller makes fun of the entrance. Waller “congratulates” the fans for being fans of HBK. But to be honest, as they sing the theme song, 10 year old Grayson would be freaking out right now, just like these fans. But Grayson now would tell that kid, “One day, you’re gonna be so disappointed. Because Shawn Michaels isn’t who you think he is. Don’t be a Shawn guy! Be a Bret guy.”

HBK says wow! We’re going there now? Taking the gloves off already, huh? But “H B Shizzle” has to say, he remembers when him and Waller used to be cool. Waller would come to HBK, ask him some advice, and now suddenly, Waller hates him? Why? Because ever since winning the Iron Survivor Challenge at Deadline, Waller said he was gonna take over. Black ‘n’ gold 2.0, the Waller Era! He’s the best on the mic, the best in the ring, and his social media game is unmatched! Fans boo but Waller says he couldn’t care less who he pisses off or who likes him, he just wants to be the guy.

But for some reason, HBK of all people, is treating Waller the same Vince treated HBK. Remember? Vince held HBK back because he wasn’t big enough, he wasn’t a draw, but then HBK proved Vince wrong. Congrats! But guess what? Now HBK is Vince! And Waller doesn’t know why HBK is doing this. Is HBK jealous? Is it that Waller doesn’t kiss HBK’s ass? Is it because Waller doesn’t go back there with the rest of the fanboys and talks about growing up watching Shawn? Is it because Waller doesn’t give HBK the clout by posing like he used to? Waller is the biggest star here, but HBK is holding him back.

Holding him back?! Waller has to be kidding! HBK cut the reins loose on Waller a long time ago. But if Waller wants to know why he isn’t The Guy right now, HBK will tell him: HE LOST! What happened at New Year’s Evil, HBK made it clear that it was not Waller’s fault. That’s why they had the cage match. We wanted a decisive winner, and we got that. Waller took his shot and missed. And Waller is mad, he wants to blame someone so he blames HBK. But to be honest, the guy he should blame is the guy in the mirror. Waller says he’ll look in the mirror. HBK should do the same. The only reason HBK is in the chair is because his best friend had a heart attack.

Waller says that’s not opinion, that is FACT. So he’s just gonna keep throwing digs, huh? Okay, HBK wasn’t in charge here before. HBK stepped in because his friend needed him, it was the least he could do after what HHH did for him. But here’s something Waller needs to come to grips with. Hunter was in charge, but guess what? HBK is the one directing the ship now. Fans rally behind HBK, but Waller says right, HBK is steering the ship, into an iceberg! Waller is the biggest star and yet he’s not on Stand & Deliver, because he’d steal the show, and HBK can’t have that. After WrestleMania weekend, maybe Waller ends up on the cut list.

Because HBK’s team is so desperate for a star, they don’t see the one right in front of them. Waller is NXT, and without him, this show is nothing! HBK says that’s Waller’s problem! Waller thinks he’s bigger than the brand, but NXT is built on the collective. It has never been about one person. #WeAreNXT isn’t a catchphrase, it is the way of life here. This brand was built on the shoulders of Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, the list goes on and on. DIY, Undisputed Era, Io Shirai, Asuka, Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair! Bron and Roxanne are the champs now, but it is more than them. There’s Tony D, Wes Lee, the Creeds, and even Waller.

But Waller is one part. Oh, yay, he’s part of it~! Aw, Shawn’s good. H e’s pulling at the heartstrings. No one does better at hyping a crowd than HBK. The theatrics, the emotional connection! But Waller sees right through it. There was always, “I’m the Icon, I’m Mr. WrestleMania, I’m the main event.” Since when was HBK a team player? Well, yeah, when it came to HBK’s career, he was all about him. But that changed when he came to NXT. As soon as he walked in here, he could feel the vibe was different. He knew this place was special. Waller again mocks HBK. Why? Because it leads you to Raw and SmackDown?

Who actually makes it to RawDown? Bron, sure. Melo, maybe. Zoey Stark, sure! But Waller is sick of this! He is sick of everyone backstage saying they wanna be a superstar but doing nothing about it! He is sick of the crowd, #WeAreNXT, but it’s the same people every week, in the same clothes because they’re too poor to afford anything different. But Waller is most sick of having a boss who has the biggest star ever right in front of him, and- ENOUGH!! HBK is mad now! Waller can run HBK down, but people a lot better than him have done it. They’ve tried for 40 YEARS! Jump on the band wagon.

But do NOT ever run down NXT. Fans cheer that! Why? Because it pisses him off? YES! Then do something about it. Waller and HBK, Stand & Deliver! If HBK loves the brand, show everyone he’s got one match left! Take off the suit, put on the HBK hat, and tune up the band one last time! Fans want to see it! HBK takes off the jacket! HBK says for over a decade, HBK has had the greatest ever wanting WrestleMania dream matches. Waller, you think you’re special? People have been asking for matches from HBK, hell! They’ve been backing the truck up to his door year after year! They’ve done it so often, the drivers know his address by heart.

And while Waller thinks he’s something great, but he’s just the guy doing it in 2023. This has happened before and it’ll happen again. And nothing, and HBK means nothing, would thrill him more than to whoop Waller’s ass at Stand & Deliver. But the reality is, there’s someone who wants to whip Waller’s ass a lot more than HBK. And this man bleeds NXT more than HBK! Waller, you’re getting your wish to have a match at Stand & Deliver, but not against the Heartbreak Kid. Waller, your opponent is… JOHNNY WRESTLING!! Gargano is back, and he wants after the man who sent him packing! Gargano runs in, fires off on Waller, and fans are loving this!

Waller staggers up, but he avoids the Superkick! Fans are thunderous for this one, will Johnny Wrestling teach Grayson Waller a lesson in what it really takes to reach the top in NXT?

 

Gigi Dolin VS Jacy Jayne!

After the Toxic Goddess was banished, Toxic Attraction fell apart, and now Gigi returns as a Toxic Avenger! Will she get back at Jacy for being selfish and cruel? Or will the Toxic Traitor make NXT all about her?

The bell rings and Gigi dodges a boot! They tie up, go around, and Gigi puts Jacy on ropes. The ref counts, Gigi lets off but pulls hair. Jacy SLAPS Gigi, then tells her to SUCK IT! But Gigi TACKLES Jacy out of the ring! Gigi rains down fists and fans fire up! Jacy turns things around to throw hands, but Gigi turns it back around. Gigi drags Jacy up, puts her in, and storms up. Gigi blocks a boot to STO! Cover, TWO! Gigi clamps onto Jacy’s arms and says Jacy did this to her! Gigi SLAPS Jacy! Jacy shoves Gigi away, runs for it, but Gigi pursues. Jacy climbs the barriers, but Gigi drags her back to ringside!

They go back in the ring, Jacy wants mercy, but bails out again. Gigi pursues, but Jacy DECKS her with a sucker punch! Jacy grins and looks under the ring. Jacy brings out a chair! The ref reprimands, but Gigi BOOTS Jacy first! Fans rally for Gigi while NXT goes picture in picture.

Gigi shouts at Jacy, stalks her, then drags her up. Gigi RAMS Jacy into barriers! Fans fire up and Gigi kicks Jacy around. Gigi stands Jacy up to RAM her into more barriers! Gigi drags Jacy up again, RAMS her into the apron, then refreshes the ring count. Gigi drags Jacy up, puts her in the ring, and covers, TWO! Gigi snarls while Jacy crawls to a corner. Gigi runs in, but Jacy dodges to ENZIGURI! Jacy BOOTS Gigi into buckles! Jacy goes corner to corner, runs in, but the CANNONBALL hits buckles! Gigi covers, TWO! Gigi snarls more, and she tells Jacy that she won’t stop. Gigi gives Jacy Kawada Kicks!

Gigi huffs and puffs while Jacy crawls to ropes. Gigi runs in to CLOBBER Jacy, then whips her corner to corner to ROCK her! Gigi WRINGS Jacy’s arm out, runs, and PENALTY KICKS! Cover, TWO! Gigi is frustrated but that anger only feeds her. Gigi drags Jacy up, but Jacy swings. Gigi turns her around to STO again! Cover, TWO! Jacy is still in this and Gigi is beside herself. Gigi watches Jacy go to ropes, runs in, but Jacy drop toeholds her into ropes! Jacy runs in but is put on the apron Gigi shoulder sin but only gets a KNEE! They’re both on the apron now, and Jacy BOOTS Gigi down! Jacy then CANNONBALLS to the floor!

Jacy drags Gigi back up, puts her back in, covers, TWO! Jacy clamps onto Gigi’s hair to throw down elbows! Jacy wraps on a top wristlock with chinbar and she thrashes Gigi around. Fans rally for Gigi as she endures. NXT returns to single picture and Gigi pries at the hold. Gigi fights up, but Jacy throws her down! Jacy clamps on a chinlock and grinds Gigi back down. Jacy talks trash about Gigi’s mom being right, but Gigi fights up. Jacy knees low, whips Gigi to ropes, and RAMS into her! Jacy snapmares Gigi, KICKS her in the back, then mule kicks her down! Cover, TWO! Jacy drags Gigi up, whips her to a corner, then runs in to back body block!

Jacy then goes outside, grabs that chair, and she shrieks as she gets back in the ring. Jacy chases the ref off, and puts the chair around Gigi’s head! Jacy says this is about her, but refs rush in to stop this! Jacy climbs a corner, but the refs remove the chair from the equation. Jacy is furious, but they won’t let her get to Gigi. Jacy leaves, vowing that this isn’t over. They may not be Toxic Attraction, but will this only get more toxic from here?

 

Fallon and Jensen talk backstage.

Fallon says she feels awful about Valentine’s Day, but he says it’s okay. She was coming from a good place, so he apologizes for not getting over it sooner. Fallon says that’s okay. They’re both just glad the other is alright. Briggs walks in and says he just came from Kiana’s. Kiana loves those flowers on her desk! Flowers? Sure, whatever, but what did she say? Well, Kiana said she’s gonna call him tonight, and they can start where they left off. At least, if that’s what Jensen wants. Duh that’s what he wants! Jensen hugs Briggs and Fallon, and the text comes in! Jensen braces himself and answers the call. “Hey, girl.”

Jensen smiles, and says tonight? Okay, that’s cool. Alright, see you later. Jensen plays cool but is clearly excited. And Fallon is pretty sure those flowers weren’t from him given how confused he looked. Briggs sighs. Fallon says she knew it all along! Briggs can’t believe it, but yeah, Fallon was right. So what’re they gonna do about it? Fallon has an idea. Uh oh. What does that mean for the romcom that is Jensen’s love life?

 

Bron Breakker walks back out to the ring.

The NXT Champion wasn’t scheduled to do this but he gets the mic. He says he was supposed to wait until next week to say what he’s about to say, but it’s time. It is time for the biggest match on the biggest stage. No more obstacles, no more roadblocks, NXT Stand & Deliver, Carmelo Hayes! Where you at, man? Fans cheer for “MEL~O! MEL~O!” And here comes HIM! Melo tells Bron that he said it best: it is time. Time for their paths to finally cross. Two of the biggest stars in NXT! Listen to the crowd! They want it! Bron wants it, and Melo wants it. Melo joins Bron in the ring, and Bron says he couldn’t agree more. They’ve been on their own paths, doing their own thing.

And every single time they’d have their title defenses, and Bron would win, the very next time he was out here, someone else’s music would hit. Disappointment would set in because it wasn’t Melo. But listen, during all this time, Bron kept tabs on Melo. He watched all Melo’s matches. Well, guess what? Melo did, too. It didn’t matter where and when Bron was on the card, whether he was closing or opening, if Melo was closing or opening, somewhere in the middle, Melo always made it a point to watch Bron. Bron asks if Melo remembers that meeting they both had with HBK & HHH. Of course Melo remembers that.

They sat down in the room, and HHH told them “NXT’s about to change.” Great opportunities for young new superstars! August, 2021. They picked Bron and Melo and said that this brand was theirs for the taking. And the last 18 months, Melo’s proved himself, and Bron’s proved himself. They both run fast, they both run hard, but there’s nowhere else for them to go except head on. Melo says here is where he’s say that’s all it is, but it just doesn’t feel right. So to keep this short and sweet, Bron just has to put that NXT Championship on the line, and they’ll see each other at Stand & Deliver.

Melo offers a handshake, and Bron accepts it. But Melo will add this: Melo has never been second to nobody. Bron says April 1st, we’ll see about that. Bron raises the belt, but whose Hollywood story has the happy ending?

 

Thea Hail meditates with Tyler Bate.

The Big Strong Boi says when the mind wanders, gently return to the breath. Breathe in… And out, letting go of the stress and tension. How does she feel? Amazing. That’s music to Bate’s ears. Mr. Chase walks over and asks if Thea’s making progress. Oh, absolutely. Thea has been through hard times, but hopefully this practice will give her the tools to deal with any hardships. Thea thanks Bate for this, but Bate says it has been his pleasure. But remember that no one is beyond fear, but we must learn to move through that fear. And Thea’s a big strong gurl, she’s got this. Thanks so much!

And Mr. Chase, good luck tonight. Namaste. Thea and Chase head out, but Duke Hudson just has to say, “I can’t believe anyone would buy that snake oil you’re selling.” Duke is skeptical, but will what Bate taught Thea help her help Chase U get a big win?

Andre Chase w/ Chase U VS Joe Gacy w/ The Schism!

NXT is picture in picture as both sides make their entrance. The Schism may be four roots, one tree, but will this be a #TeachableMoment that even big trees can be cut down?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, go around, and Gacy puts Chase on the ropes. Chase gets free on his own, and they reset. They tie up, Chase headlocks but Gacy powers out. Chase runs Gacy over! Cover, ONE! Chase hits a headlock takeover! Gacy fights up, powers out, but Chase goes up and around to roll Gacy up! TWO, and Chase headlocks again. Gacy powers up to hit a BIG back suplex! Gacy snarls and he pushes Chase around. Gacy insults Chase, headlocks, but Chase RAMS him into a corner! The ref counts, Gacy turns things around and he ROCKS Chase with a forearm! Chase turns things around to CHOP!

Gacy sputters to another corner, Chase CHOPS him again! Chase whips corner to corner, Gacy reverses but Chase goes up and over, only for Gacy to CLOBBER him! Gacy keeps moving, ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Gacy frowns but he drags Chase up to DECK him! And then DECK him again! NXT returns to single picture as Chase counter punches! Chase fires off, whips, but Gacy reverses again. Chase goes up an dover, ducks ‘n’ dodges, then FLYING LARIATS! Chase throws down fast hands and fans fire up! Gacy staggers up but he blocks a kick to KNEE Chase down! Gacy reels Chase in to suplex and BRAINBUSTER! Cover, TWO!

Chase hangs tough and Gacy snarls in frustration. Gacy talks trash on Chase, “You’re nothing but a liar!” Gacy drags Chase up, fireman’s carries, but Chase throws elbows! Chase elbows from a corner, BOOTS him, then fires up to fire off haymakers! Chase whips, Gacy reverses but Chase reverses back, RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Fans fire up, Chase has them spell it out! C! H! A! S! E! U! What’s that spell? CHASE U!! Gacy swings, into the SIDE EFFECT! Cover, TWO! Fans rally for Chase U, Chase gets the legs and steps through, but Gacy boots him away! Chase comes back, he and Gacy trade forearms, then Gacy BOOTS!

Gacy runs, into a SUPERKICK! Chase runs, into the URENAGE! Thea and Duke coach Chase up but Gacy brings him up. Chase throws a forearm but Gacy gives it back. Chase throws a haymaker, Gacy HEADBUTTS! Chase throws a haymaker, Gacy gives it back, they go back and forth, faster and faster! Gacy gets the edge, runs to the corner to SPLASH, then brings Chase to the top rope! Gacy ROCKS Chase, climbs up after him, but Chase resists the lift! Chase throws body shots, CLUBS away on Gacy’s back, then SUNSET FLIP POWERBOMBS!! Cover, TWO!! Gacy survives and Thea does the breathing exercises. But she can’t keep her cool, she storms up to Ava Raine!

Fans fire up as Thea shouts at Ava but Ava just smiles. Thea and Chase high-five, but Gacy hits the UPSIDE-DOWN!! Cover, Gacy wins!!

Winner: Joe Gacy, by pinfall

Thea is stunned! Her excitement in conquering her fears only cost Chase! Will Duke Hudson ultimately be right about growing up? Will The Schism’s roots soon break Chase U up from within?

 

Alba Fyre speaks.

“Tonight, the moon shines full over us. So together, Isla, we will perform a Full Moon Ritual. This cycle makes curious beings of us all. Once the longest reigning champions, now Kayden Carter & Katana Chance struggle to remain bound together. And has there ever truly been harmony between Tatum Paxley and Ivy Nile?” Isla says nope! Alba says their reflections show that Alba is as ferocious a beast as what hatched from “that orb of night,” and that Isla is as cunning as the ones that dance in the shadows. Together, they are unrivaled. Tonight, they charge in the moonlight. Next week, they march forwards towards claiming their lot!

Does that mean Fyre & Dawn will burn down anyone between them and the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships?

 

Chase U regroups backstage.

Thea is sorry about Mr. Chase’s loss. But today was a big day for her. She overcame her fear! She did it! She did what Tyler told her, and it worked! Chase is proud that Thea did that. Tyler Bate’s methods are really connecting, Thea really put Ava in her place. They should bring Tyler in more often. But Duke says they seem to be forgetting something. Chase LOST! Chase U has BEEN losing! And to the guy who was trashing them! Duke, where’s this coming from? Duke says if Chase wants a teachable moment, here it is! They are an institution of LOSERS! They even celebrate it! They gave someone an award for winning a single match!

Duke thought they were better than that but apparently not. Chase U is PATHETIC! They’re not a school, they’re a JOKE!! Duke storms off, but is he right? Is there nothing to celebrate about Chase U?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie says the world is still buzzing about the North American Championship Open Challenges. Yes, things have been so intense, but Wes loves it! Did you see that brawl? Everyone was in it! They fought in the back, all the way to ringside, and he had no idea who would win. But then lo and behold, after four months of absence, Nathan Frazer returns and gives Wes one hell of a match! Wes knows he loved it. Did McKenzie love it? Yeah! Wes says you gotta love all the commotion, the chaos, the madness! And guess what? Wait, again? YEP! Next week! The fans love it so-

Axiom walks in and says he’s happy to have found Wes. Axiom was so close to answering that Open Challenge and we could all see the fire in his eyes. But Axiom was held back, Nathan beat him to it, but Axiom is vowing right now, next week will be Wes VS Axiom. Wes says that if Axiom makes it to the ring first, there’s no doubt they’ll tear it up. But until then, good luck. Fist bump and high-five, but will the Undeniable Truth have the solution to the Open Challenge variables?

 

NXT Women’s Championship: Roxanne Perez VS Meiko Satomura!

The Prodigy has loved pro-wrestling ever since she played the video games as a child. And now, she’s living the dream as a champion in the WWE! But will all that gaming, all that dreaming, all that training, prepare her for the Final Boss? Or is this Roadblock too much for her to overcome?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and one way or another, someone is going to stand and deliver!

The bell rings, Roxie offers a handshake and Meiko takes it, to reel Roxie in for a serious stare down. Meiko then lets Roxie go, and NXT goes picture in picture.

The two circle, feel things out, and tie up. Meiko gets the arm, wrenches to wristlock, but Roxie rolls, kips up, only for Meiko to wrangle her back down! Roxie rolls back, stands up again, but Meiko wrenches to wristlock. Roxie reaches out for ropes but Meiko yanks her away. Roxie tries the other side but Meiko brings her away again. Roxie uses ropes to flip but Meiko KICKS Roxie in the leg, to then GUT WRENCH SUPLEX! Cover, TWO! Meiko facelocks and she grinds, but Roxie slips free to facelock. Meiko slips out to facelock back, but Roxie rolls to wrench. Meiko switches to a waistlock and then shifts to a chinbar.

Roxie endures, fans rally as she fights up, but Meiko wrenches and YANKS an arm. Meiko wrenches again, YANKS the arm again, then wristlocks. Roxie cartwheels and headscissors to a O’Conner Bridge! But Meiko makes it a SLEEPER! Roxie flails, rolls back to a cover, TWO!! Meiko lets Roxie go in time and the two stand off. They circle and feel things out again. Roxie gets around to waistlock, ripcord and whip, but Meiko goes up and over and FLYING ARM-DRAGS Roxie, to an STF!! Roxie flails, scrambles, reaches out, and NXT returns to single picture as she gets the ROPEBREAK! Meiko lets off and fans applaud.

Roxie resets and circles with Meiko again. Fans duel as the two knuckle lock. They go shoulder to shoulder in a test of strength and Meiko bends Roxie back! Roxie drops and it’s a cover, TWO as Roxie gets an arm up! Mieko pushes it down, TWO as Roxie gets the other arm up. Meiko pushes that down, TWO as Roxie kips up! Roxie powers Meiko back but Meiko knees low, arm-drags Roxie down to a cover, TWO! Meiko wrenches but Roxie throws forearms! Meiko SOBATS! Meiko whips, Roxie ducks ‘n ‘dodges but Meiko FLYING SHOULDERS! Roxie goes to ropes, Meiko is right on her to snapmare and straitjacket!

Fans rally as Roxie endures the stretch. Roxie fights up, she powers up and turns things around but Meiko turns it back around! Meiko brings Roxie to her knees, and makes it a STRAITJACKET RACK! Roxie endures, gets her legs free and rolls back to put the straitjacket on Meiko! Meiko fights up, arm-drags free, but Roxie stands up. Roxie dodges, rolls back, and headscissors Meiko to the apron! Fans fire up as Roxie runs, to DIVE into a forearm! Meiko gets back in, she UPPERCUTS, then UPPERCUTS again! Meiko wrenches, wristlocks, KICKS, LEG SWEEPS, and KNEE DROPS! Cover, TWO!

Roxie hangs tough but Meiko stays on her. Meiko whips Roxie to a corner, runs in and forearm smashes! Roxie wobbles, Meiko whips her corner to corner then runs back in. Roxie slips out, slides under and sunset flips, TWO! Meiko gets a leg, she drags Roxie around and steps through, DEEP toehold! Roxie endures, kicks at Meiko, but Meiko just KICKS the bad leg! And kicks it again! SPINNING TOEHOLD! Meiko goes back to the deep standing toehold, but Roxie rolls over! Roxie floats to a headlock, but Meiko fights up. Meiko throws body shots, powers out, and RAMS shoulders! Roxie stays up so Meiko eggs her own.

Roxie runs to RAM Meiko, but Meiko shakes her head. She SLAPS Roxie, SLAPS her, SLAP SLAP SLAP! Fans fire up, Meiko runs, and she CLOBBERS Roxie! Roxie roars as she stands up! Roxie CHOPS, CHOPS, CHOP CHOP CHOP! Roxie fires off forearms, but Meiko shoves her away to BUZZSAW! Roxie staggers up and shakes her head, but Meiko KICKS! And KICKS! But Roxie blocks a kick to DRAGON SCREW! Fans fire up with Roxie, she runs in at Meiko, and UPPERCUTS in the corner! Roxie runs, returns, and UPPERCUTS again! Roxie shrieks to UPPERCUT a third time! Wrench and RUSSIAN- NO, Meiko throws Roxie down!

Meiko runs, handsprings, but Roxie dodges the knee drop! Roxie runs to SHOTGUN Meiko out! Fans fire up and Roxie builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit at the ramp! Fans are thunderous as Roxie drags Meiko up and into the ring. Roxie goes to the corner, climbs up top, but Meiko kicks her legs out! Meiko climbs up after Roxie, brings her up, but Roxie throws body shots. Roxie slips under, SMACKS Meiko off buckles, then goes back up. SUPER RUSSIAN- NO, Meiko fights that, throws elbows, but Roxie climbs up higher! SUPER SUNSET- NO, Meiko holds the ropes! Meiko ELBOWS Roxie down! Roxie staggers, Meiko MULE KICKS her!

Meiko adjusts up top, leaps, SPLASH onto BOOTS!! Cover, TWO!!! Meiko survives and Roxie grits her teeth. Roxie drags Meiko but Meiko KICKS her from below! And again! Roxie sits Meiko up to KICK her in the back! And again! Fans duel, Roxie keeps kicking Meiko! Roxie whips, Meiko reverses and ROCKS Roxie, to then ROUNDHOUSE! Meiko fireman’s carries, DEATH VALLEY- NO, Roxie handsprings out! RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO!! Meiko ghost pins, TWO!!! Roxie escapes by nanoseconds, and she spins, but Meiko blocks the kick!

Meiko gets Roxie to let go, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER!! Meiko runs, HANDSPRING KNEE DROP! Cover, TWO!?!? Fans are loving “NXT! NXT!” as Roxie goes to the apron. Meiko goes out after her, KICKS her, but Roxie fires forearms! Meiko KICKS again, fireman’s carries, but Roxie slips off to POST Meiko! Meiko hops off the apron, Roxie SOBATS, and POP- NO, Meiko pops Roxie off! Roxie sits up, into SCORPIO RISING!!

Meiko drags Roxie up as the ring count climbs. Meiko puts Roxie in at 7 of 10, drags her to a cover, ROPEBREAK!!! Roxie survives by a literal foot! Meiko roars and she drags Roxie back up. Fans rally as Meiko fires off Kawada Kicks! Roxie flops over, but she sits up slowly. Meiko aims, and KICKS her back down! Roxie sits up, but she avoids Scorpio Rising! Roll-up, with a bridge, ROXIE WINS!!!

Winner: Roxanne Perez, by pinfall (still NXT Women’s Champion)

After taking a lot of damage, The Prodigy defeats the Final Boss! She was able to stand and deliver, and Meiko respects that. Meiko personally hands the belt over to Roxie and fans applaud the sportsmanship. Meiko helps Roxie stand and raises her hand in victory, and then Roxie falls over in exhaustion. The ref and Meiko check her, the ref calls for reinforcements. They check, then medics come in. Can Roxie even hear any of them talking to her? Meiko and the fans are concerned as the refs call for the EMT now. A stretcher is brought out, the team hustles in, and Booker T leaves commentary to check his former student.

The medical team braces Roxie’s neck, puts her on the backboard, and then get her on the stretcher. HBK also shows up at ringside. Fans applaud as Roxie manages a response. They get her oxygen, then get her to the back. They hurry to the exit and to the ambulance. Roxanne won, but will we see it was a pyrrhic victory in the end?


My Thoughts:

Roadblock as a concept was introduced in such a ham-fisted way years ago *cough* Vince */cough* but NXT has made it work, and that includes tonight. I did not expect Tiffany Stratton to give us the opening roll, and I groaned a bit at seeing that being the case, but Tiffany is committed to her character, she delivered it perfectly, and it is clear she is gonna be the Heel coming after the women’s title, even with Valkyria having her own promo about that. Chances are, we’ll get a contenders match to make it official, Tiffany can beat Valkyria and maybe even Stevie Turner at the same time to make it clear who is going to Stand & Deliver.

And speaking of the women’s title, that was an awesome main event. Roxie once again showed heart in fighting as the underdog, and even then doesn’t hit her finisher but gets a quick pin win to retain. And then quite the shocking twist having her pass out and need medical attention. I don’t think they’ll vacate the title, but it’s a good tease that Roxie’s health is in question. Roxie will have a heroic comeback to confront whoever is her contender and we’ll get one good promo between them before the match at Stand & Deliver.

Great move having the Jailhouse match open the night, and that match was great stuff. Fans love Tony, Tony has Stacks, Stacks helps Tony win, it just works. But Tony’s gonna have to wait his turn when it comes to titles. Good promo from Wes and Axiom, and I’m intrigued by how Axiom is on the edge of becoming a Heel. He’s being a bit smarmy about how he should’ve had this and should’ve had that. But I do hope he and Wes have a title match next week. I’m not sure if I wanna see Axiom fight his way through chaos, or pull of something sneaky like running in from the back side or even pops out from under the ring. Either way, it’ll be good.

Really good Six Man from Bron & Creeds VS Jinder & Indus Sher. Also it seems Jinder is officially Indus Sher, they had a group theme for their entrance. I figured the Faces would win that, Bron needs the momentum going into Stand & Deliver. And I like that, at least in kayfabe, Bron wanted to say things now and not waste time next week. Bron and Melo have a really good promo together, they make their match official, and as I’ve said, this has to be where Bron loses the title and moves on to RawDown after this. Bron could even be a Raw After Mania debut to go right after the US Championship.

Good stuff out of the ongoing story of Jensen and Kiana, and of course there were flowers from another guy Kiana’s dating. It wasn’t Zack since that was her cousin, but there are endless possibilities for Kiana’s other guy. Honestly, it really should be someone signed to NXT, maybe someone that’s been showing up on Level Up, and this is that guy’s way of getting on TV. Not only will all this tear down Fallon and Kiana as a team, we could get a good feud out of Jensen and “the other guy,” fighting for the heart of Kiana. Also, the meltdown of Fallon and Kiana is lining up with Isla & Alba rising up. Good promo from those two, I’m expecting a Triple Threat Tag of Isla & Alba VS KC Squared VS Tatum & Ivy, big win for Isla & Alba to go to Stand & Deliver and get those belts.

Really good match from Gigi and Jacy, and great win for Gigi, but of course Jacy beats her down. This really isn’t over, I bet they have a rematch at Stand & Deliver that raises the bar, might even have a stipulation. The winner of that can then be seen as contender to whoever comes out NXT Women’s Champion at Stand & Deliver, with that build carrying things to perhaps Spring Breakin’ in May. Really good promo from Dragunov to call out JD McDonagh, and speaking of something that needs a stipulation, it’s this one. These two showed us what they could do in NXT UK, why not give us more of that here?

Really good stuff from this Chase U story. Thea meditating with Tyler Bate was a nice touch, but after Duke exploded on Chase after the loss, I guess the Six Man Tag where Tyler helps Chase U against The Schism is out of the question. This story has had some really good twists and turns, but it’d be a shame if this was the end of Chase U because of how fun those promos segments have been. Maybe Chase U’s next chapter will have Tyler Bate as an official member of the team, which seems like a shame for Tyler but at least he’ll be doing something. I still say Tyler should’ve been champion coming out of Worlds Collide, but whatever. Maybe this will help get him back up towards a title for the summer.

And what a great Grayson Waller Effect, which is something I never expected to say. But Waller and HBK were great, Waller is a great talker and wrestler but I don’t think enough to be “The Guy.” Good digs about HBK taking over for HHH because of HHH’s health, but also I like that HBK called in Gargano for his proxy. That just makes sense since Waller attacked Gargano as he was on his way out, and though Gargano came back to WWE right to Raw, he really does need to settle things with Waller here in NXT. Fans love Gargano, most fans love to hate Waller, this is going to be great stuff that could steal the show at Stand & Deliver, which I think is actually HBK’s ultimate plan for Waller.

My Score: 8.9/10

Results:

Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana

Santana comes out second and immediately double legs Wentz as soon as he hits the ring, bullies him a little and then starts chasing Trey around so Wentz can recover and land a Moonsault on Santana. Codebreaker into a Running Shooting Star for a near fall from Wentz. Wentz slowly things down with the headlock, even though he’s the quicker guy, so that doesn’t make sense. Santana fires back a little but WEntz counters and starts choking him on the ropes. Referee backs him off so Trey gets involved. Wentz with some attempted control moves, standing switches from both leads to both heading to the ropes, Santana shakes off Wentz and hits the Rolling Buck Fifty! Dive takes out both Rascalz after Wentz powders, bullying in the corner, Wentz tries to pop out but Santana catches him in a fluid pop Death Valley Driver and near fall.

Wentz manages to duck the Spin the Block, counter the next move and connect on his strike combo. Swanton Bomb from Wentz, but only 2! Superkick from Wentz, attempted UFO Cutter, but it turns into trading Push Kicks, Enzuigiris and then a Jumping DDT from Wentz! Wentz feigns injury, Trey tries to interfere but Maclin makes the save. Wentz goes for his Back Handspring Jumping Knee but Santana times the Spin the Block perfectly. Levels Wentz and picks up the win!

Tom has an interview with Mustafa Ali and it just cements his delusional politician thing. Not really a ton beyond Ali is ignoring facts and continuing his schtick.

Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay

Ahh yelling at each other in Spanish and Russian, so no one understand the other and Masha grabs Marti’s head and pulls her down. They start a little chain wrestling with Arm Wringers and World of Sport counters. Bad Drop Toe Hold because Marti slowed down too much and it made the move look fake as hell. But at least the next few moves from both connect a little harder, Marti distracts the ref and Allysin makes her presence felt.

Running Forearm drops Masha in the corner, Hip attack from Marti gives her a near fall. Masha retreats to the corner, Marti tries to go back to the well but Masha has great counters. Slips through her legs, Up Kick, Yakuza Kick, Waterwheel Kick, all beautiful strikes for a near fall. Marti tries to use the ropes in a dirty Roll-Up but the referee sees it, Allysin jumps up, Masha attacks her and then another Roll-Up from Marti with Allysin assisting from the outside for the win.

https://x.com/i/status/1801412311061516750

Why is Xia so perfect in this adorable supportive friend character? I really hate enjoying this wrinkle from Xia…god dammit.

PCO saw AJ Francis take the rose from SDL, so he jumps them during their interview with Gia. PCO just wants the rose back, very Young Frankenstein vibes, and I’m not mad at this so far. 

Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson

Collar and Elbow tie up that goes from corner to corner and Tasha leans into the ropes for the break. Rope run, Tasha Leap Frogs Dani and then connects with a Sole Butt. Tasha tries to go for something in the corner, but Dani just throws her halfway across the ring and connects with a Sliding Lariat Ishii style. Tasha connects on a kick, takes entirely too long showboating and Dani counters into a Falcon Arrow for 2.

Dani misses in the corner, Tasha tries to follow up but eats a forearm and retreats to the apron. Dani tries to Suplex her outside in, but Tasha counters, uses the ropes to her advantage and Dani eats a PK to the face. Near fall gets followed up by a Headbutt from Tasha, then she chokes Dani on the ropes, Dani tries to fight back but another Headbutt drops Dani. Dani tries to fight back again, but eats a Codebreaker from Tasha for yet another near fall. Forward rolling Snapmare into PK but Dani grabs her leg and goes for a flash Roll-Up only for 2. Forearm strike exchange, Tasha gets the best of things with a Knee Lift, tries to hit the ropes but Dani lays in a few Lariats and then…I don’t know. Both go for a Single Leg Dropkick and its just…ugly. Dumb spot and the stutter steps telegraphed a goofball spot.

Dani is the first one back up, a few quick strikes and another Single Leg Dropkick gives Dani the advantage but Tasha blocks the follow up, tries a Cradle, but no dice. Powerbomb from Dani for 2. Luna Landing attempt, but the eye rake into the Rope Assisted Bulldog, but Dani counters, Tasha hits the Shiranui, only for 2. Tasha tries the Rings of Saturn, but Dani gets her foot on the ropes. Tasha with chops and headbutt combos, but Dani hits the Rebound Blue Thunder Bomb for a two! Dani tries to psyche up, Luna Landing gets turned into a Frankensteiner from Tasha, but Dani blocks, then blocks the Okurrr, transitions it into the Luna Landing and Dani wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801418226976358888

Frankie makes a Megadeth reference now with Kill the King. So I’m not angry now, or angry again.

The Hardy Compound thing…I have no words for it. It was definitely goofier than the previous TNA ones (which is saying something when Rockstar Spud lost a match to a child), but it was kinda fun. 

ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone

ASH goes back to the kiss the hand aspect of her persona, then stomps into the enhancement talent. Rosemary lurking in the shadows and just watching the match is odd, but ASH is back to getting her character over. ASH gets cocky, eats a quick Dropkick, ASH powders, complains to the Concierge, but when Jada dives…ASH catches her nicely with the Forearm to the face. Two near falls, and then ASH just unloads in frustration.

Cartwheel Back Elbow from ASH, Jada cuts off the next move, tries to string together some offense but ASH say nope. A little struggle, Jada connects on a kick to the face, Moonsault, but ASH gets the knees up, Lariat into Rarefied Air, and ASH wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801426643694616707

The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth)

Bey starts, its a very respectful double Babyface team style of start. Some counter wrestling, then Bey asks for Nic to tag in, and some playing jawing, but nothing seems to be crossing lines. And no offense is really worth discussing, just basic stuff, playful taunts and giving each other space to tag out. When Ace tags in, he’s a bit more business minded, doesn’t toy with taunts and just rolls under a Lariat, kicks the back of the knees, takes Nic down, throws an Arm Wringer into a Hammerlock and tries to stay on top of Nic. Nic with a desperation spin out into the Release Northern Lights counter. Ace tags out, Bey Double Stomps Nic’s back and keep him isolated. Nic tries to fight back a few times but Bey cuts off the comeback, Nic even just tries to scuttle past Bey, but can’t get to Ryan in time.

Headlock Suplex from Ace after Bey tags him in, to continue the isolation. Coordinated tagging in and out from the ABC, keeps Nic completely isolated. When they comeback from the commercial is probably when Nic will make the comeback and tag out. But those 3 minutes…rough isolation days. Rebound Tandem Overhead Arm Drag, into a Double PK from ABC. Nic is connecting with a few Rabbit Punches, but a Dropkick from Bey stifles the attempt at momentum. Bey tags out to Ace, kick to the ribs into a High Angle Backdrop, and then a Headscissors Chokehold. Nic slowly turns through the Headscissors, gets back to his feet, but gets shoved into the ABC corner. Jumping Snap Kick from Ace, into the jump off teammate Flying Uppercut attack. Bey shoves Nic back into the corner, goes for another attack but crashes and burns, a small struggle to stop Nic, but Nic gets free and Ryan with the hot tag.

Flying Shoulder Tackle into a Rude Awakening for 2 on Bey! Nic tags himself back in, tries a Cutter, blocked, Back Slide, but no, Fame ASSER for 2! Arm Wringer control for the Nemeth side now, tags back in Ryan for some Dosie Doe Wringers into a Double Clothesline. Rope runs, both miss and then Double Lariat stereo tags spot. Ace has early control of the stereo tag, Russian Leg Sweep into Click Click Boom. Ryan tries to run interreference but eats a Leaping Bulldog. Nic tries something and then eats a Triangle Kick from Ace for 2! Nic eats a Double Knee to the face, then the Spike Brainbuster, but Ryan breaks up the pinfall! Jumping DDT on Ace, Cutter from Bey on Ryan and then Nic comes to long enough to hit a Superkick as everyone lays on the mat.

Superkick is blocked by Ace, Roll-Up, no, Face Stomp, near fall and Ace keeps searching for how to win. Tags in Bey, 1-2-Sweet, but Ryan picks Ace’s foot from outside. Ace tries a Plancha on Ryan, but Ryan just slides in the ring to avoid the attack. Ryan lands a Jumping Flatliner and Nic with Danger Zone for the win!

 

Overall Score: 5/10

I mean, for all intents and purposes this show did kind of what it was supposed to. It got across some stories, it set things up for tomorrow,  but the show was paced a little slow. The some spots were clunky, some matches felt necessary but unwanted…and the Hardy Compound thing was…interesting. It really depends on your tolerance for campy and silly. This one was more Scooby Doo than the previous ones, Eddie turned into a legit Werewolf, Reby beheaded Alisha, Myers got laid out by a skeleton and Maxell and Broken Matt allowed Moose to regain the power of 69. If you go in expecting references and fun, this was good. If you go in expecting some kind of twisted mystical puzzlebox…you’re gonna have a bad time.

The main event was a pretty damn good TV main event though. Things are set up a little awkwardly for the PPV, but I guess we’ll have to see how it plays out. Also curious if Tatum Paxley is gonna answer Jordynne’s open challenge or if they go a different route.

ROH Women’s World Television Championship Proving Grounds: Billie Starkz VS Sandra Moone!

Athena’s Minion is still stacking up wins while stacking up bodies, but now she runs into the Subspace Sweetheart, who was also part of that Women’s World TV title tournament. Will Moone find a way to eclipse the Star(kz)? Or will Billie make her Overlord proud by going 11-0?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the fans rally. The two approach, Billie dodges the haymaker to BOOT Moone! Billie grins, whips Moone to a corner, then runs in. Moone dodges, says eat her space dust, and she CROSSBODIES in the corner! Moone goes to the apron, runs Billie side to side to bum her off buckles, then hurries back in. Moone winds up, but Billie gets under the lariat. Billie waistlocks, Moone pries the hold, but Billie pulls hair! The ref reprimands, but Billie cravats to KNEE SMASH! Moone falls over, the fans cheer, and Billie reels Moone in. Billie snap suplexes Moone, covers, TWO!

Billie watches Moone go to a corner, then fires off forearm after forearm! The ref counts, Billie snapmares Moone, then KICKS her in the back! Moone writhes, the fans fire up, and Billie says the kick was good. Billie stalks Moone, kicks her around, taunts her, and brings her up. Moone ROCKS Billie, Billie DECKS Moone! Billie puts Moone in a corner, whips corner to corner, and Moone hits buckles hard! Billie stomps away on Moone, then gets in the ref’s face as he counts at her. Billie storms back after Moone, whips corner to corner, but Moone stops herself! Moone ELBOWS Billie down, then hurries up on her.

Billie trips Moone, rains down furious forearms, but the ref reprimands Billie on how she’s holding Moone down by her neck! Billie tells the ref not to tell her what to do! The fans fire up and Billie snarls as she goes back to Moone. Billie clamps onto Moone for the motorcycle stretch! Moone endures, fights up, arm-drags free, and then blocks a lariat to ELBOW! And ROLLING ELBOW! Moone wrenches, CLUBS away on Billie, and then steps over. Moone says finger licking good, and she MULE KICKS Billie right down! Billie bails out, fans fire up as Moone builds speed, and she DIVES! Not the cleanest but Billie still falls!

Moone blocks, but gets the REBOUND ENZIGIRI! Moone is down, Billie goes up, but Moone rises! SHORYUKEN! Moone climbs up, brings Billie up, but Billie fights with body shots!

The fans boo but Billie clamps onto Moone with the HALF NELSON CHINBAR! Moone taps, Billie wins!

Winner: Billie Starkz, by submission (denies Sandra Moone a title opportunity)

Moone put up a fight but Starkz still shines as she checks another one off the list. But will Billie be in for a fight when ROH goes to Arlington, Texas for Death Before Dishonor?

 

Shane Taylor & Lee Moriarty VS Nick Comoroto & Jacoby Watts!

Shane Taylor Promotions plans to tear through anyone and everyone in their way to the top of both ROH and AEW. Will they do just that here tonight? Or will HE, Jacoby, finally lead the Wrecking Ball to a victory?

Comoroto starts for his team, as he has before, and offers a handshake for the Code of Honor. Lee Moriarty starts and just gets in Comoroto’s face. Comoroto does his best to smile and shrug that off, and the two circle. They feel things out, but Lee KICKS a leg. Comoroto shrugs that off, too, and the two circle more. Fans chant “S, T, P! S, T, P!” Lee KICKS, applauds, and dares Comoroto to take a swing. Comoroto does, Lee avoids it, but then Comoroto blocks a kick! So Lee KNEES free! Lee fires up, runs, and forearms Comoroto, but Comoroto HEADBUTTS Lee down! Comoroto applauds and the fans join in.

Comoroto trophy lifts Lee, does some quick pumps, then SLAMS Lee down! Tag to Jacoby and this is the first time we’ve seen him do anything in weeks! Jacoby FLAPJACKS Lee off the apron, but then asks for a microphone? Jacoby says, “My friends, my followers, my faithful flock right here in Las Vegas, Nevada, praise be to HE! And HE is ME.” The fans boo instead. Jacoby goes back to Lee, puts him in, and tags Comoroto. Wow, that was all? Comoroto wrenches Lee, Lee kicks free, and he tags in Shane! The fans fire up for Big Bad Shaney T. Boy, and he steps to Comoroto. Shane SLAPS Comoroto!

Fans chant “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” as Shane eggs Comoroto on. Comoroto shoves Shane, Shane shoves back, and they RAM shoulders! Shane nods, runs, and RAMS Comoroto! “MEAT!” Comoroto RAMS back! “MEAT!” Shane JABS, eggs Comoroto on, so Comoroto runs in! Shane throws Comoroto out! Jacoby encourages Comoroto, and the fans fire up, too! Comoroto skins the cat! But then Shane is there, to bob ‘n’ weave and HEADBUTT! And URENAGE! And SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Comoroto is still in this but Shane tags Lee. Lee runs to BOOT Jacoby, but that upsets Comrooto! Comoroto CLOBBERS Lee, BLASTS Shane, then scoops Lee!

Comoroto spins and SLAMS Lee, runs up and JUMP ELBOW DROPS! The fans fire up with Comoroto, and he says “Save us, Jacoby~!” Comoroto runs in at the corner to SPLASH, then Jacoby tags in! POWERSLAM, Jacoby takes the pin, TWO!! Lee survives because Jacoby took too long, and now Jacoby tags Comoroto back in. Lee runs up to SHOTGUN Jacoby! Comoroto is mad again, and he scoops Lee. Lee slips free, tags Shane, and then baits Comoroto in! BUCKLE SHOT! Shane waits on Comoroto to get up, and then KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

Lee takes Jacoby’s cowboy hat to do a dance, then throws it away. Will ROH soon belong to STP from top to bottom?

 

Johnny TV & Taya Valkyrie speak.

La Wera Loca says over the course of the last year and a half, yes, she has had wins and losses, faced some of the best women in the world, and has nothing but respect for each and every one. But one is just… getting under her skin! Queen Aminata~! Queen? So she gave herself a crown? You can’t do that! Aminata’s not a real queen! Taya earned the iconic title of Reina De Reinas (Queen of Queens), earned the nickname “Ratings Queen,” and earned the nickname, “The Main Character.” Aminata is a fraud! And quite annoying. So it doesn’t matter that Aminata beat Taya in the tournament, this is a warning.

Taya will wipe that smug smile off Aminata’s face, and kick that ass off her throne! Watch your back. Johnny says nice one. Mr. & Mrs. TV are ready, but will Aminata just have to beat Taya again?

 

Trios Four Corner Survival: Lance Archer & The Righteous VS Action Andretti & Top Flight VS The Dark Order VS Dalton Castle & The Infantry!

Well, they’re in Las Vegas, so ROH sees last week’s Trios Triple Threat and raises it another trio! It’s a Dirty Dozen in Sin City, but who will hit the jackpot on these 25% odds?

The Peacock argues with the Murderhawk Monster, but then steps down as the teams sort out. In this kind of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal at one time, and it is The Sight to See that starts against Alex Reynolds. The Code of Honor is upheld, but then Alex trips Action at the bell! Things speed up, Action hurdles but Alex leaps over! Things keep moving, Action bypasses, and he handsprings through Alex’s hip toss! Action snapmares Alex, then slides, but Alex ducks the Penalty Kick to roll Action up! ONE, and Action arm-drags Alex! Then JAPANESE ARM-DRAGS, then DROPKICKS! The fans cheer, and Action wrenches Alex’s arm.

Action brings Alex over, tags in Darius, and Darius takes the handoff to wrench. Darius whips, Alex reverses, but Darius turns arm-drag into backslide, ONE! Alex runs up, into the arm-drag! Darius has the armlock, then he wrenches. Tag to Dante, he CLUBS an arm and snapmares Alex down, for Darius to basement dropkick the arm! The fans cheer, Dante covers, ONE!

Reynolds runs up, The Infantry dodges and Castle is in, to get around and SLAM him! The fans fire up as The Infantry and Castle pose together. But then Archer & The Righteous attack! The ref reprimands but they knock down The Infantry as well as Castle, and even the rest of The Dark Order! Vincent feeds Uno to Dutch for the SCRAPBUSTER!

Top Flight storms in but Archer BOOTS Darius, SLAMS Dante, then sends Darius to the SCRAPBUSTER! Action runs up but into a SIDEWALK SLAM! Archer hauls Bravo up into a dragon sleeper but Dean CLUBS him! Archer just frowns, and then he grabs Dean by the neck! CHOKE SLAM DDT COMBO! The fans fire up, and Vinnie snaps his fingers. SLIDING FLATLINER on Uno! Vinnie tags himself in off Uno, then runs up on Dean. Dean fires body shots and forearms, then whips. Vinnie reverses, both men run, and Vinnie CLOBBERS Dean! Vinnie drags Dean up and over, bumps him off buckles and fires body shots!

Tag to Dutch and Dutch UPPERCUTS Dean! Castle protests but Archer smothers Dean! Dutch smiles and snaps his suspenders, before running in, into a BOOT!

They DUMP Archer out, but Archer grabs Uno! Action SUPERKICKS Archer down! The Righteous regroups outside, some of the others head that way, and Alex swings on Action. Action dodges, SOBATS, then reels Alex in. Action suplexes, Alex slips free, and Alex waistlocks. Action drops down, slips under, mule kicks then front kicks!

It was fast ‘n’ furious between all four teams, and the fastest team won out! Will Action, Darius & Dante make good on some golden tickets to Arlington?

 

Six Woman Tag: Marina Shafir, Alex Windsor & Diamante VS Abadon, Lady Frost & Leyla Hirsch!

The Problem is already hard to solve, and now she’s got British Titanium and the Cuban Diamond by her side! Will this trio be unbreakable? Or will they have some trouble with the LEGIT trio standing against them?

The Code of Honor is upheld, though barely, and the trios sort out. Leyla starts against Marina and the fans rally up. The two circle, tie up, and Leyla waistlocks to drag Marina down. Marina fights up, Leyla has a leg, but Marina’s sturdy, so Leyla lets off. They reset, knuckle lock, and Marina slips around to trip Leyla. Marina ties the legs up, floats to a headlock, but Leyla slips out the back to a waistlock. They go around, Leyla is a backpack as Marina stands up. Marina leans forward to dump Leyla off, but Leyla holds on to drag Marina down into body scissors! Marina fights free and the fans cheer the technical exchange.

The two reset and go again. Marina trips Leyla to a cover, ONE! Leyla goes to sweep but Marina jumps over! Marina pats little Leyla on the head, but that pisses Leyla off! Leyla trips Marina, rains down forearms, then she gets around to facelock. Leyla brings Marina over, Abadon tags in, and the fans fire up as the two double whip. Drop toehold then SENTON! Abadon hurries to cover, TWO! Abadon keeps Marina from her team and rains down fists! Marina gets free, goes for a leg but Abadon slips away. Abadon goes for an arm, wrenches and wristlocks, but Marina rolls. Abadon wrangles her, Marina fights up and rolls to her feet.

Abadon wrangles Marina again, using power to get the better of the technician. And then Abadon BITES Marina’s arm! The ref reprimands and Marina breaks free! Thankfully Marina’s gear has sleeves. Abadon backs off and Frost tags in. Marina tags Diamante, and these two run up. Frost wheelbarrows to arm-drag, then dodges Diamante to handspring and RANA! Diamante ends up in the corner,. Frost tags Abadon then CHOPS Diamante. Abadon throws hands, brings Diamante around, and ROCKS her with forearm after forearm! Diamante kicks low but Abadon HELL STABS! Abadon whips, Diamante reverses, and Marina gets a cheap shot in!

Abadon shrieks at Marina, but Diamante CLUBS Abadon down! Diamante stomps a mudhole into Abadon, lets off as the ref counts, and then tags Windsor. Windsor fires off hands on Abadon, then brings her around to bump Abadon off buckles. Windsor whips corner to corner, runs up, but into a BOOT! Windsor just huffs ‘n’ puffs and comes back! Windsor blocks boots, puts Abadon in ropes, and DRAPING NECKBREAKERS! Cover, TWO! Windsor CLUBS Abadon again and again, then drags her up. Tag to Marina, then snapmare for Abadon. Marina uses Windsor as a weapon, scoop SLAM on the legs!

Marina tags Diamante, they drag Abadon, and then Marina uses Diamante as a weapon, scoop SLAM on Abadon’s chest! Diamante eggs Leyla & Frost on, but Abadon sits up like a certain Deadman! Abadon checks her neck, dodges Diamante, then tags Frost! Frost fires up as she rallies on Daimante! ELBOW, then a tilt-o-whirl into the sunset flip! ONE, but Frost BUZZSAWS!

The fans fire up with Frost and she runs to the corner. GAMANGIRI! Diamante sits down, Frost goes corner to corner, handspring CANNONBALL! The fans fire up again and Frost covers, TWO! Diamante stays in this but Frost stays on her with a wrench. Tag to Leyla and Frost snapmares Diamante. Diamante ducks the buzzsaw, but not the HEEL KICK! Leyla then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, Windsor & Marina break it! Frost ROUNDHOUSES Marina! Frost goes out but Marina SWEEPS the legs! Windsor tags in, Leyla DECKS Marina, but then sees Windsor waiting! Leyla takes a swing, but into the RIGHT ANGLE SLAM!

Windsor hurries to cover, but Abadon breaks it! Diamante SPEARS Abadon! Windsor hauls Leyla up, but Leyla wrenches to SAIDO! Leyla puts Windsor in the drop zone, then goes up, but Diamante distracts the ref so Marina can YANK Leyla down! SHINING WINDSOR! And then the fisherman and a twist, LIBERTINE DRIVER! Cover, Windsor’s team wins!

Winners: Marina Shafir, Alex Windsor & Diamante, by pinfall

Powerful teamwork from this trio, and we know Windsor gets a big match tomorrow night on AEW Rampage against Toni Storm. Will Iron Will Windsor steal the spotlight from the Leading Lady this close to Forbidden Door? Will all three of these women be primed for title opportunities as we head for Death Before Dishonor and beyond?

 

ROH World Tag Team Championships Proving Grounds: The Kingdom VS Bad Dude Tito & Che Cabrera!

Matt Taven & Mike Bennett are the only ones in the Undisputed Kingdom still holding gold, and they’ve gotta put in the work to prove they’re still worthy. Will they make sure ROH stays their kingdom? Or will the #WolfZaddies be howling to the moon as they take a bite out of the champs?

The teams sort out, Mike starts against Tito and the Code of Honor is kept. The bell rings, we’re on the clock, and Tito is all fired up. They tie up, Mike headlocks, but Tito squeezes tight before he powers out. Mike RAMS Tito, Tito asks if that’s all he’s got. Mike ROCKS Tito and headlocks him! Tito powers up to lift Mike, then powers out of the headlock. They RAM shoulders again, and Mike says okay. Try this! CHOP! Tito CHOPS back! They CHOP and CHOP and CHOP, and the fans “WOO~!” with each one! Tito CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, then he CHOPS Mike down! The fans fire up, Tito runs, but Mike dropkicks the leg out!

Tag to Taven, he runs to CLOBBER Tito! Taven tells Vegas to shut up, then he CHOPS Tito to a corner. Taven whips, Tito reverses, and he catches Taven as he goes up! Taven fights free, but Tito dodges to CHOP! Tag to Che, and the Zaddies double whip to DOUBLE FLAPJACK! That had some sauce on it! Che covers, TWO! Che keeps cool, brings Taven up, but Taven puts Che in the corner. Taven CHOPS, but Che doesn’t flinch. Taven apologizes, but he kicks low. Taven whips, Che goes up and over, and he keeps moving to then FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE! Cover, TWO! Taven crawls to ropes, Che storms up, and Che brings Taven up.

Che whips, Taven holds ropes to stop himself, but Che runs in. Mike tags in before Taven DUMPS Che out, then Mike swings on Che! Che gets under, Mike comes back, but into a FLAPJACK to the floor! But Taven WRECKS Che with a dropkick! The fans cheer and Taven helps Mike into the ring. Taven tags back in, and he puts Che in the ring. Che goes to the corner, Taven runs in, but Che dodges the splash! Che grabs at Taven, Taven holds ropes, and the ref counts. Che lets off but Taven sucker punches him! Tag to Bennett, the Kingdom double whips Che to ropes. Taven hurdles, Mike ROCKS Che, then Taven hits the KICK OF THE KING! Mike covers, TWO!

The fans fire up while Mike grows frustrated. Mike drags Che up, puts him in a corner, then CHOPS! And ROCKS! And CHOPS! Repeat! Mike then mule kicks Che, snapmares, and basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Che stays in this but Mike drags him back up. Tag to Taven, The Kingdom double whips to a corner. Che bounces off buckles, Taven whips again but Che reverses hard! Taven hits buckles and falls, and the fans rally up! Che and Taven crawl, but Mike tags in first! Mike gets Che up, Che hops and LARIATS Mike down! Che crawls, the fans fire up, hot tag to Tito! The Bad Dude dodges Mike to UPPERCUT Taven in the corner!

Tito fires off forearms and CHOPS on Taven, but Mike runs up! Tito ROCKS Mike! Taven swings, Tito wrenches to a SPINEBUSTER! Mike swings, but into a BLUE THUNDER onto Taven! Tito covers Mike, TWO!! Mike survives but Tito hauls him back up. Fireman’s carry, but Mike fires elbows! Tito ELBOWS Mike back, then wrenches to a SKY HIGH! Cover, Taven breaks it! Che gets in and he TOSSES Taven out! Tito brings the straps down, Che goes up! Electric Chair Lift, but Taven SHOVES Che to the apron!! Mike slips free, fireman’s carries, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER, and JUST THE TIP of the knee!

Taven goes up, Mike reels Tito in, HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall (denies the Wolf Zaddies a title opportunity)

Taven says this belt is his girl, he makes love to it every night! No one takes Taven’s girl from him! Mike says it doesn’t matter who you put against them, The Kingdom IS the best tag team in the world! But will there come a time when a tag team does come along and takes these titles away from them? Or will these titles always be undisputed?


My Thoughts:

A very good ROH here with it clocking in at an hour and 11 minutes. Surprisingly little on the promo side, with just Taya calling out Aminata for a match. Taya will definitely lose to build Aminata up towards her title match with Athena, which probably happens at Death Before Dishonor. Billie and Velvet each have momentum going into their inevitable TV title match, and it was great to see Moone back after her tournament appearance. And good Six Woman Tag, real good teamwork from the Heels in getting the win. Also, didn’t realize until double checking on Windsor’s finisher name, she is Will Ospreay’s wife, the “missus” he refers to so often.

Good tag match from Shane Taylor Promotions VS Comoroto & Watts, and of course STP won out. The whole story of Comoroto & Watts is their dysfunction because Watts puts himself above everything. But I do like that Watts is getting more and more involved as the weeks go by, so maybe at some point, Watts actually does do something meaningful in a match. Maybe. I’m a bit surprised Adora lost to Harley but I suppose Harley’s been losing plenty on AEW, she has to get something at some point.

Great stuff in the Trios Fatal 4. Castle joining up with The Infantry was certainly fun, but I was a little surprised Action & Top Flight won. This does help them keep pace with Shane Taylor Promotions as that rivalry gets going via AEW, but I thought Dark Order was gonna be the ones to get going again. Well, there’s still time before Death Before Dishonor, so they can hold many other matches to determine #1 contenders. And while The Wolf Zaddies got a good showing against The Kingdom, of course The Kingdom won the Proving Grounds match. The story, slow moving as it is, will of course be Menard & Parker getting their shot, probably at Death Before Dishonor, and there’s still a good chance The Kingdom retains. Depends on if TK cares about The Undisputed Kingdom’s story where Adam Cole wants Wardlow to protect all their titles. Feels like that moment passed, to be honest.

My Score: 8.6/10
