Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams are here!

The fans cheer HIM as he and Trick head to the ring. Trick gets the mics and has them cut the music so he can say that we’re less than two weeks from the Great American Bash, so they’ll get right to business. Introducing your NXT Champion, “the man who don’t miss, the man who will hit the Texas Two Step all over that spitting dragon, Carmelo Hayes!” Fans cheer, and Melo says that he wants to do the whole “I AM” thing, but truth is, there was a miss. But Trick Melo Gang did their thang! Rhea threw in the briefcase, Dom distracted the ref, Trick Melo Gang should’ve won that match!

Melo knows that, and he’ll get to his reasons in a second. Judgment Day VS Trick Melo, it was 4v2, whole building was up. There were “MEL~O!” and “Whoop Dat Trick” chants, and they were seconds away from beating the most dominant team in all the WWE. But then the new #1 contender decided he wanted to “help.” Melo calls out Ilja Dragunov, but here comes Dragunov already! Dragunov tells Melo that last week, he did not mean to put his nose into Melo’s business. But there is something Melo doesn’t seem to understand. If Damian Priest had used his Money in the Bank briefcase, Melo wouldn’t have just lost a match, but maybe, the NXT Championship, as well.

Priest could’ve taken that belt to he main roster, and Dragunov wanted to prevent that. Dragunov wants to face MELO at the Great American Bash! But Melo let Dragunov down in the end. Funny for Dragunov to say this, but Melo lost control. Oh, Melo lost control? No, no, Melo had everything under control, cuz Melo stays mellow. There’s no one as ready for Dragunov as Melo is, just as Dragunov is ready. Melo saw the match, Dragunov and Bron beat the hell out of each other, so Melo knows what Dragunov is capable of. And to be honest, Melo is trying to understand how Dragunov keeps up this maniac pace.

Dragunov says exactly, Melo can’t understand. Because there is one thing that Dragunov does more than anyone else: he always gives everything! When he steps into the ring, it means something! Fans cheer that! Dragunov says the people FEEL something! The fans cheer more! And what Dragunov will make Melo feel at the Great American Bash is defeat. Oh, you don’t think Melo doesn’t feel? He doesn’t feel the weight of this title and what it means to represent NXT? You don’t think he feels the animosity of his peers in the back? You don’t think he feels the criticism of the world just because he holds this title?! Melo feels everything!

And the two of them, it will be a fight. Melo knows that, everyone knows that. But there is no one more qualified to face Melo at GAB than Dragunov. So understand, Melo plans on having a long, long title reign. And when it reigns, it pours. And by the end of it, Melo will be swimming in W’s. Melo will make Dragunov feel HIM. Because Melo is Mr. P L E, and he will hit different. Fans cheer and Dragunov says Melo will have to hit different, and harder than ever! Because if he doesn’t, then the Melo Dynasty will fall apart. And no disrespect, it takes a lot of strength and passion to hold the NXT Championship.

But it doesn’t matter how much of a great champion Melo thinks he is, because the most intense man in NXT, THIS dragon will blow fire that Melo cannot control! Fans fire up, and Melo says then on July 30th, he blows the fire out. For one, it’ll be champagne, and the other will have just pain. The fans are ready, will not even UNBESIEGBAR be able to stop HIM?


Mustafa Ali finds Wes Lee backstage.

Wes sighs and Ali says, “What were you thinking?” Well, hello to you, too. Ali hopes Wes isn’t actually defending his title against Dominik Mysterio. Wes says Dom stepped to him, so he accepted the challenge. It is what it is. Ali sighs, and says the ink on their contract for GAB hasn’t even dried yet! And Ali doesn’t want Dom, he wants Wes! Dom is a sleazebag, he’s dirty, and- Wait, wait. Ali doesn’t think Wes will beat Dom? That’s not what Ali meant to say. It sure sounded like it, though. All Ali is saying is there’s a reason why he’s “Dirty Dom.” Plus, he’ll have Rhea ringside! Wes says he’s ready for whatever is coming.

Ali wants Wes to understand, Ali wants to face the greatest North American Champion of all time at the GAB. Then Wes will be there. Ali says he will be there. Wes still has to get there. Wes says he has to finish taping up. He’ll see Ali in Texas. Will Wes prove Ali is worried for nothing tonight?


Tony D’Angelo is released from prison.

He’s given back his personal belongings, gets dressed in his nice suit, and Channing Lorenzo is outside waiting for him. Tony walks up and Stacks is happy to give him his hat back. The Don’s back, baby! A little scruffy but they can fix that. They get on the road, how will Tony’s return to NXT be received?


Nathan Frazer & Dragon Lee VS Los Lotharios!

The British Rocket and Wonder Boy of Mexico didn’t appreciate Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo thinking they can  just talk to ladies like Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz. Will Frazer & Dragon show the Lethal Lovers that smooth talk only gets you so far?

NXT returns and Frazer makes his entrance, remixed theme to mark his new stage as Heritage Cup Champion. Dragon then makes his entrance, also remixed. The two look to each other and nod, then storm up to the ring, only for Los Lotharios to DOUBLE WRECKING BALL DROPKICK! Angel fires off on Dragon and Humberto stomps Frazer!

They double leap frog then TU LO SABE! To DOUBLE SUPERKICKS! Cover, TWO! Garza is annoyed but he drags Frazer up and onto ropes. Garza UPPERCUTS Frazer, then tags Humberto. Garza brings Frazer up for Humberto to LEAP FROG ATTACK! And then feed to a HAYMAKER from Garza! Humberto covers, TWO! Frazer is still in this but Humberto keeps his focus.

Garza returns to clinch as NXT returns to single picture. Frazer JAWBREAKERS free! But Garza catches Frazer as he leaps for his corner! Frazer CLUBS Garza but Garza TOSSES Frazer and SUPERKICKS him down! And OFF COME THE PANTS! Fans are torn but Feroz says that’s gross.

Dragon whips, runs in, blocks the boot and puts Garza in ropes for a DRAPING DRAGON SCREW! Humberto runs in, Dragon pops him up in the corner, and Humberto does a headstand! Only to get a SUPERKICK!!

Winners: Nathan Frazer & Dragon Lee, by pinfall

Leon & Feroz celebrate along with the fans as their guys win! Will Frazer & Dragon look to become a two man power trip here in NXT?

As for Los Lotharios, they argue, and Humberto SHOVES Garza! And he blames Garza for the loss! Humberto storms off and Garza hurries after, is this duo going to fall apart?


Baron Corbin is in the woods.

As we left off with him last week, he has found a hooded man standing amidst tiki torches. He wonders what he’s gotten himself into, but he still walks the path lit by the firelight. He wonders why he couldn’t just be satisfied with the path he was walking. It was easy, comfortable and safe. So why? But screw that! He took his past and “burned all the ships.” You must evolve or die. But into what? He won’t be someone he’s not. He must be feared to be respected to be champion. He will face his future, and the rest of his career, love him or hate hm, save your damn opinions, because he is doing this as himself.

The man in the hood IS Corbin! Corbin comes face to face with his true form, but what will that look like in the ring?


NXT Anonymous is still watching.

And they spotted Roxanne Perez talking with Booker T before the show. He told Roxie that he is always going to be honest with her. And he wants her to understand, Blair Davenport is different. Blair is cold, calculating, vicious and will take her out if given the chance. Roxie may have lost, but she can’t think about yesterday. Think about today! When you get on that plane, go home to Texas, if you’re still thinking about what did happen, it’ll just happen again! Roxie has to have attitude, has to be aggressive, and has to dog it! Because trust him on this, Roxie, if you give Blair one inch, she’ll take a mile. One chance and she takes you out.

So Roxie better bring the noise. She got that? She does. Then will Booker’s coaching help The Prodigy bring down the Dangerous Gaijin?


Gigi Dolin VS Kiana James!

Speaking of self-discovery, the Toxic Avenger may be an outsider, but she’d rather be that and true to herself than change herself just to “fit in.” Will she show Kiana how to truly accept yourself? Or will Kiana continue to lie to herself just so she can get ahead?

NXT returns as Kiana makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two rush in! They fire off forearms, fans fire up, but Kiana gets around to CLUB Gigi! Kiana bumps Gigi off buckles and talks trash before she stomps a mudhole and RAMS a shoulder in! The ref counts, Kiana lets off, but Gigi avoids the splash! Gigi ROCKS Kiana, kicks her leg, and fires off fast hands and UPPERCUTS! Gigi snapmares and kicks but Kiana ducks it to roll Gigi up! TWO, and Gigi dodges to waistlock. Kiana fights, Gigi shoves her, and then follows her to RANA her down! Fans fire up while Kiana flounders about. Gigi runs in to DROPKICK Kiana out of the ring!

Fans fire up as Gigi goes to the apron. And PENALTY KICKS Kiana! Fans rally as Gigi brings Kiana up. Kiana fights the suplex, throws knees, and then POSTS Gigi! Kiana grins while the ring count climbs, and she storms up on Gigi to put her in the ring. Kiana slides in at 7 of 10, and she stomps Gigi while talking more trash. Gigi goes to ropes, Kiana throws down hands! Kiana brings Gigi around, scoops her, and SLAMS her down! Cover, TWO! Fans rally but Kiana clamps on a chinlock. Gigi fights up, arm-drags free, and she throws body shots! Kiana kicks legs out, swings, but Gigi BOOTS her, ROCKS her, and kicks away!

Gigi KNEES Kiana, then LARIATS! Fans rally as Gigi rallies! And BOOTS Kiana down! Gigi roars, fans fire up, and Gigi spins Kiana for a ROUNDHOUSE! Gigi runs but Kiana avoids the STO to throw Gigi down by her hair! Fans boo but Kiana crawls to her handbag! Gigi drags Kiana, Kiana kicks her away! They fight over the bag, the ref reprimands, but Gigi kicks low! And swings! Kiana dodges, but Gigi wants more! The ref stops Gigi, gets the bag from her, but then Gigi gets it back! But Kiana hits 401K!! Cover, Kiana wins!

Winner: Kiana James, by pinfall

The Calculator used that bag more as a distraction than a weapon, and it still pays off! She and Gigi are now 1-1, what will happen if there’s a tiebreaker?


NXT shares footage from after last week’s episode.

Axiom & SCRYPTS confronted the new kids, Lucien Price & Bronco Nima. Axiom told them that he doesn’t appreciate how they’re interrupting interviews. There are levels of respect here in NXT. Respect? Respect ain’t got them nowhere, bruh! What do they do when they got a problem with somebody? Nima says these guys ain’t ready for that. Scrypts says that they can all take it easy, that’s his tag partner they’re talking to. Axiom never said- But it seems like the new guys want their first tag match in NXT. So they’ll do it right here, next week. Deal.

Scrypts is confident but Axiom says they’re not a team. And he’s happy to team up but Scrypts can’t keep doing this to him. Scrypts needs to understand that Axiom has a lot of individual goals here in NXT. The dysfunction aside, can the Undeniable Truth and the warrior of the written word show Price & Nima how things are done in NXT?


Ivy Nile is in the Diamond Mine Dojo.

Or at least, what was the Diamond Mine Dojo. No Malcolm Bivens, no Tyler Rust, no Hideki Suzuki, no Roderick Strong, and we all know why Damon Kemp and Tatum Paxley are out. With The Creed Brothers being banished from NXT, it’s only her now. And so, with a heavy heart, she takes down the Diamond Mine banner. Guess it’s true that nothing lasts forever.


Noam Dar again tweets.

He apologizes for cancelling Supernova Sessions last week, especially since he was going to have Eddy Thorpe as his guest. He is still “a glass case of emotion” without the Heritage Cup, but he will “try to be big and brave to host SNS again on Tuesday.”

Backstage interview with Eddy Thorpe.

McKenzie Mitchell is with the Alpha Wolf and is still stunned at how brutal NXT Underground was. Does he feel that win puts him on the map? Absolutely! That was the fight of his life, that win should put him in title contention. McKenzie notes Eddy was supposedly going to be Dar’s guest on Supernova Sessions, and- Wait, in comes The Meta Four. Lash Legend is joined by Oro Mensah & Jakara Jackson while she wheels Noam Dar around in a wheelchair, and she says they were looking all over for Eddy. On behalf of Noam, they apologize to Eddy for cancelling SNS tonight. Again?!

Hey, he tried his best! But you all have eyes. Look at Dar! He’s in no shape to host anything. Oro says they know, this was gonna be the biggest moment of Eddy’s life. So as a consolation prize, they are happy to present to him this: an autographed photo of Noam Dar, from back when he was Heritage Cup Champion. Oh wow, a signed picture of Dar. EDDY RIPS IT! Meta Four is upset, do not disrespect the (former) Heritage Cup Champion! You won one match, good for you. But check that ego, brother. There’s no ego from him. And he’s not a talker but a fighter. Well then they just need a ring, right? Yeah!

Lash wants the boys to hold on but Oro and Eddy are ready. Refs step in, will Eddy and Oro settle this in the ring, ropes or no ropes?


Lucien Price & Bronco Nima VS Axiom & SCRYPTS!

This street wise duo of giants is ready to make a big impact on NXT’s Tag Division! Will they sack Axiom and Scrypts like on the gridiron? Or will there be a fumble returned for a touchdown by the underdog duo?

The teams sort out and Nima starts against Axiom. Nima rushes in, Axiom dodges him, but Nima picks him up! Axiom sunset flips but Nima drags him up! Axiom CHOPS, and CHOPS, but Nima knees low! Nima whips but Axiom gets around to get an arm! But Nima deadlifts! Axiom CLUBS Nima’s leg and he drops, but into a stack cover! TWO and Axiom slips under to CHOP and CHOP again! Nima powers Axiom to a corner but Axiom slips free to CHOP! Nima TOSSES Axiom to the corner! But Axiom BOOTS back! Axiom goes up, leaps, and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Then DROPKICKS! Fans fire up while Nima checks his chin.

Axiom wrenches, tags Scrypts, but Nima gets away. Nima rushes in, Scrypts handsprings to dodge one lariat, then handsprings to dodge another! Scrypts wrenches an arm, reaches out, and Axiom tags back in. They hand off the wrench, though Scrypts maybe wanted a combo move. Axiom says he’s got this, so Scrypts DECKS Axiom!! Scrypts grins, has he been setting Axiom up all along!? Nima CLOBBERS Axiom and rains down fists! Tag to Price, and he rains down fists! Nima says back off, and he gets Axiom up. TOSS to the corner, and BIG lariat from Price! Then feed to Nima’s FLYING BOOT! Cover, Price & Nima win!

Winners: Lucien Price & Bronco Nima, by pinfall

Scrypts wanted to be on the same page but Axiom didn’t even wanna be in the same book, so Scrypts had to rewrite the plot. Will Axiom get his payback on Scrypts soon enough?


The D’Angelos are here for the homecoming!

Stacks is with cousin Maria and everyone else, and he gets the mic to say, “On May 25th, 2023, everything changed for the D’Angelo family. The Don got pinched and locked up because of that stool pigeon rat, Joe Coffey and his Gallus brothers. They trumped up some charges and thought they were taking over the streets of NXT? Well last week, that didn’t happen. Am I right?” The family and fans applaud. So please welcome back TONY D’ANGELO~! Everyone cheers as Tony makes his way out in a fresh suit. The fans chant “WELCOME BACK!” as Tony hugs and high-fives everyone, but especially Stackis.

Stacks hands off the mic to Tony, and Tony says, “I’m back, baybay!” Fans chant ‘TONY D! TONY D!” Tony appreciates that, but listen, listen. Shoutout to his guy, Stacks! Tony wouldn’t be here if not for him. Stacks came up with the master plan! He’s a genius! Gallus had no clue! Hollywood, once you got that all figured out, here’s your next leading man! “But in all seriousness, most of you, and definitely Gallus, that though this man was the rat once here. But a wise man once told me, things aren’t always what it seems. Right, Joe Coffey? HAHAHA!” So here’s what Tony means.

It was two months ago, when Tony was first put away, he and Stacks talked about the plan. Gallus was never gonna give them a title match, so Stacks said to get the charges drops and get them a shot, he has to make it like HE betrayed Tony. Tony played along, “How could you?” Exactly! Stacks has to convince everyone that he wants to be The Don, but how can he? Unless Tony’s in here. Tony says to give that cheap SOB a couple of envelopes, too. They have to make the bait nice and good. But they’ll really have to sell this. They need to play Gallus by making it look like he’s playing Tony.

And so Stacks explained that abduction double fake. Joe’s ego will brag about it, and he did. Tony played upset and that would make Joe comfortable enough to hear the stipulations. The match was made, and all Stacks had to do was win. And he would! Tony had faith in Stacks the whole time, and it paid off! But wait, here comes Gallus! Joe is furious! He has to put a filter on what he’s seeing! “Yous twos are the lowest form of life I’ve ever met! You’re scum! Subhuman scub!” Tony might be a free man, but he’s gonna wish that he was back in the cell! Joe promises them, that it is a lot safer in prison than on the outside!

Tony says that face Joe has right now is a face of a man who had control, but just lost it! Just like Mark & Wolfie are gonna lose the tag titles to the D’Angelos at the Great American Bash! Fans like the sound of that! Tony tells Glalus to go home, get their shine box, and shine up the belts real nice. Cuz the D’Angelos will take what they should’ve won at Stand & Deliver in the NXT Tag Team Championships! Mark laughs sarcastically and mocks Tony. Do they really think they can pull off another scam at The Bash? Gallus are dead serious! In fact, for screwing them over, they won’t even make it to the Bash!

Gallus steps up tot he ring, but Tony dares them to do something. Gallus gets in the ring, and they pull out the Billy clubs! But the family brings out crowbar after crowbar! Even Maria! Gallus is all fired up, and the brawl is on! But Tony & Stacks dodge, SMACK Mark & Wolfie, then DOUBLE SMACK Joe! Mark gets back up, into a DOUBLE FLAPJACK through the table! Seems like a waste of provolone. But Tony & Stacks hold up the gold, will they own those after the Bash?


Trick Melo Gang walks ‘n’ talks backstage.

They know the Bash will be tough, but Melo’s ready for that weirdo. Oh, speaking of weirdos, The Schism walks up. Joe Gacy, other weirdos. Trick says he’d wear a mask if he was drinking the Kool-Aid they’re all sharing. Gacy says there is no need to target the flourishing flock with negativity. Ava Raine says the Schism is a collective that works together for each other, not for selfish gains. Pfffft! But Gacy says this union will dissolve as soon as Melo loses the belt. Melo says that’s funny, because he ain’t losing. But then in steps Dragunov! Gacy says hello to the “future” NXT Champion.

Melo says this is the third time Dragunov’s stepped in when not needed. What’s wrong with him? Nothing. Gacy says we can all sense the tension, and that is alarming. Dragunov says his fight with Melo is inevitable. But Gacy is insufferable. He is not weak enough to hang onto his words. Says the man who crossed the bridge they built. No no no, hold on. Two weeks now, Dragunov’s gotten in Melo’s business. He expects that from The Schism but not from Dragunov. But then Gacy sucker punches Melo! The brawl is on and refs rush in to stop this! Will Trick Melo Gang and Dragunov end up unlikely allies after this?


Thea Hail w/ Duke Hudson VS Elektra Lopez w/ Lola Vice!

The Uncrowned NXT Women’s Champion is looking to prove herself worth of another shot, but La Madrina wants her turn first. Will Thea shock Elektra with a win? Or will Elektra show Thea has no business being a contender?

NXT returns and Elektra makes her entrance, Lola by her side. The bell rings, they tie up, and Lopez knees low! And throws Thea by her hair! Thea gets up but Lopez scoops to SLAM her! Lopez talks trash, fans boo, but Lopez scoops and SLAMS again! And then whips Thea to a corner! Lopez RAMS into Thea again and again, but tells the ref to leave her alone. Lopez whips Thea back in but Thea dodges to roll Lopez up! TWO, and Thea runs up, dodges a haymaker and rallies with FLYING FOREARMS! Fans fire up with Thea and she back body blocks in a corner! And hits an EXPLODER! And then SENTONS!

Lola talks trash, Thea talks trash back, but Lopez CLOBBERS Thea! Lopez brings Thea up, but Thea gets the KIMURA!! Lopez falls, Thea pulls back on the arm! Lola panics but Lopez TAPS! Thea wins!!

Winner: Thea Hail, by submission

Duke Hudson celebrates with the star student, and fans chant “YOU TAPPED OUT!” at Lopez! Will Thea prove she isn’t just a wannabe but a legit threat to the champ? Duke gets a mic to ask for a #HailYeah! “HAIL YEAH!” Thea says thank you, Duke, and she feels unstoppable right now! She just tapped out Elektra Lopez, torqued that arm, and make her tap the same way Tiffany Stratton tapped out! So on that note, Theta wants her second chance at the NXT Women’s Championship!! Fans like the sound of that! Thea knows she can tap that bi- Whoa whoa whoa. Right, sorry.

But if that’s how she feels, then there’s one thing left to say. “REMATCH! REMATCH! REMATCH!” Fans chant along, and Thea tells “Big blondie, get out here so I can kick your ass!” Here comes Tiff, and fans boo. Tiff rolls her eyes and says first off, Thea doesn’t get to call out the champion. For one, it’s rude. And also, she’s totally superior than Thea. But it’s so cute how Thea learned one new move and thinks she can conquer the world. Fans chant ‘YOU TAPPED OUT!” but Tiff ignores it as she says they can save having another pep rally. Thea wants a rematch? Then she accepts! Fans cheer that!

In fact, why wouldn’t Tiff want that? It’d be the easiest defense ever since she already now. Remember? It was 1-2-3. Tootles. Hold on there! Thea has just one little thing to add to the match at Great American Bash. Thea wants to make it… A SUBMISSION MATCH! Absolutely freakin’ not! Did she not hear anything Tiff said? Thea can’t just do what she wants with matches! Tiffany can! And Thea can’t make her! Thea snatches that arm! And has the KIMURA!!! Tiffany taps! She shouts! She says okay, it’ll be a submission match at GAB!! Just let her go!! Fans chant “YOU TAPPED OUT! YOU TAPPED OUT!”

Tiffany almost cries as Thea lets her go. And now Thea has what she wants! But will she get what she should’ve had all along in that NXT Women’s Championship?


Dom & Rhea talk backstage.

She’s confident he’ll beat Wes and get that North American Championship. But the D’Angelo Family walks by. Tony tells Dom that “Benny from the yard” says hello. Aw, that Benny. What a guy. Yeah. Good luck tonight. Tony heads out, and Dom points out Lyra Valkyria. Rhea talks with her about how she’s told pretty much everyone else that Lyra is badass. But then Lyra lets Jacy beat her and get a win. Was Rhea wrong? No. Then show her. Lyra says next time she’s in there with Jacy, she will. The Morrigan heads out, and Dom says Lyra better. You don’t wanna disappoint Mami.


Gable Steveson speaks.

The Olympic Gold Medalist has a big decision to make. What’s next for him? He could go back to school and win another NCAA Division 1 title. He could prepare for Paris and represent the USA in the Olympics again, and go for a second gold medal. Or he could stay in the WWE and NXT. Next week, he will make his decision.


Eddy Thorpe VS Oro Mensah w/ The Meta Four!

The Alpha Wolf may have a vested interest in Gable Steveson’s wrestling future, but in his immediate future is the golden party boy of the Meta Four. Will his decision be easy enough in humbling Dar’s sidekick? Or will a win by Oro help cheer Dar up?

The bell rings and the two rush in. Eddy gets around to waistlock and SLAM! Then he floats to a facelock and he brings Oro up to a headlock. Oro powers up but Eddy holds on tight. Oro pulls on an ear, powers out, but Eddy gets around to hit a headlock takeover! Fans rally, Oro fights up, and he throws body shots. Oro CHOPS, whips, but Eddy reverses to SPINNING CROSSBODY! Fans rally and Eddy brings Oro up. Oro SLAPS Eddy, and tells him not to disrespect them! But Eddy SLAPS, then CHOPS back! Oro sputters, Eddy storms up but Oro kicks the legs out! Eddy hotshots off ropes, and Oro stomps away!

Oro CLUBS away on Eddy, hammers and KICKS him, then snarls. Oro drags Eddy up to short arm LARIAT! Oro then clinches to EXPLODER! Cover, TWO! Eddy hangs tough but Oro covers again, ONE!! Anther cover, ONE!! Oro smothers Eddy, fans rally up for Eddy, but Oro scowls. Oro runs in but Eddy blocks the Penalty Kick! Eddy throws Oro but Oro FLIP KICKS! Cover, TWO! Oro drags Eddy around to a neck wrench, but the fans rally up. Eddy fights up, throws body shots, and he arm-drags free! Oro swings but Eddy body shots! And then counter punches! And then ducks a chop to give a CHOP!

Eddy whips, CLOBBERS Oro, then rallies on him! SOBAT! ENZIGURI! Oro staggers around, Eddy waistlocks but Oro throws elbows. Eddy still GERMAN SUPLEXES! Oro flops out of the ring! Eddy builds speed to DIVE! Direct hit into the desk! Fans fire up while both men are down, but Jakara distracts the ref. Lash puts Dar in the ring?! Dar barely even moves but the ref wants him to get out of the ring. The ref pushes Dar to ropes while Eddy puts Oro in the ring. DIJAK BOOTS Eddy! Dijak says Eddy isn’t the baddest in NXT, DIJAK is! Dijak leaves Eddy behind, the ring count starts, and fans boo as Lash drags Dar out of the ring.

Eddy stands at 8 of 10 bot flounders around! He gets in at 9.9!! But Oro aims, to WHEEL KICK in the corner! Cover, Oro wins!

Winner: Oro Mensah, by pinfall

The Meta Four celebrates that they got another win! Except Dar, who still seems strangely comatose. Will anything snap Dar out of his funk? Will the Alpha Wolf look to hunt down #HardJustice?


Dana Brooke and Kelani Jordan work out together.

But coach Dana can tell something is bugging Kelani. Kelani is upset at herself for losing to Cora Jade. Dana understands that. But Kelani just started. Let’s do something they can only do. The gymnasts chalk up and get to the handsprings and backflips. Kelani sticks the landing and Dana says she’s gonna break out! Cora wishes she could do what Kelani does. That’s why Cora has that kendo stick wherever she goes. Kelani says that was a lot of fun and she’s learning a lot from Dana. Dana says right back at her! Will Kelani get right back up and on the right track in NXT?

Cora Jade watches this.

And she is not impressed. Gymnastics? That’s supposed to help Kelani next week? Cora smacks the lockers with her kendo stick, but will her bad attitude be trumped by Kelani’s positive one?


NXT video interviews Roxanne Perez and Blair Davenport.

The two of them are in separate locations, and Vic Joseph brings up what we all saw: NXT Anonymous was watching Roxie talk with Booker T. Roxie says she saw that, too. She doesn’t know who Anonymous is- Blair says it’s not her. Oh, okay… That doesn’t matter anyway. Booker was just giving her advice, because it is them one more time at the Great American Bash, in Roxie’s home state of Texas! Blair says she thought Booker liked Roxie. Wasn’t it bad enough how Blair left Roxie lifeless in the ring on the Fourth of July? Now Blair will have to do that all again, but in front of Roxie’s friends and family.

Roxie says she won’t, but Blair says Roxie had one of the best years in NXT. Except, that was last year. Now Blair’s back, and the division is for grown women, not little girls. Roxie no longer belongs. Vic asks Roxie what it’ll take for her to beat Blair on July 30th? Roxie says she’s sick and tired of everyone thinking she’s some easy target! She is never gonna be 6 feet tall or overpower her opponents. But since the day she lost her NXT Women’s Championship, there has been a rage building inside, and Blair is only adding to it. Roxie says she’ll walk into The Bash in front of friends and family, all while controlling her anxiety.

But if it means beating Blair, she will show a side of her that the WWE Universe has never seen before! Roxie tells Blair that Blair doesn’t know what’s coming for her. Blair laughs that off, and asks how can you fit such big dreams into such a small body. Roxie, it all sounds so great, but Blair doesn’t believe it. And neither does Roxie. Either Roxie has the killer instinct or she doesn’t. And we both know Blair does, because Roxie’s seen it. And she will again at The Bash, only worse. Because Blair vows to hurt Roxie. But the good news is, Austin’s only a short drive from Laredo. So then Roxie can just go home and not even bother coming back to Orlando, since she no longer belongs her.

Roxie takes off the mic, storms off and Blair plays like she feels bad. Wave bye to the toddler. See you at the Bash. “Stupid girl.” But will Blair look like the fool when Roxie pops off?


NXT North American Championship: Wes Lee VS Dominik Mysterio w/ Rhea Ripley!

The Cardiac Kid has been on an incredible streak, and he doesn’t look to slow down any time soon! Will he blow right through “Dirty Dom” to take on Mustafa Ali? Or will the Judgment Day add to their growing collection with some NXT gold?

NXT returns as Wes makes his entrance. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if this title stays home or goes on the road!

The bell rings and fans rally as the two circle. Wes and Dom approach, back off, and Dom eggs Wes on. They tie up, Wes headlocks, but Dom pries it open. Wes power sit back on but Dom tries again. Wes keeps the headlock on tight, but Dom powers up and pries free. Wes spins it around to headlock Dom again! Dom throws body shots, powers up to a back suplex, but Wes lands on his feet to headlock again! Rhea gets annoyed but Dom rolls free, only for Wes to ELBOW him back! Fans duel, “DOM’S NOT READY!” “YES HE IS!” Wes dodges Dom to DROPKICK him out! Wes goes out, but Rhea shields Dom!

Fans boo but Rhea says Wes ain’t doing anything, and NXT goes picture in picture.

Wes cools off, goes back into the ring, and holds the ropes open for Mami’s little boy. Dom backs off, but the ring count puts on the pressure with Champion’s Advantage in play. Dom slides in but then slides out, refreshing the count. Dom smirks and Rhea applauds but Wes still waits. Dom slides in again, but Wes slides out after him! Wes ROCKS Dom, ROCKS him again, and again! Rhea stays back and Wes chases Dom back into the ring. Wes fires off and BOOTS Dom to a corner! And then CHOPS him! Dom staggers away to another corner, but Wes runs in to CHOP again! Dom staggers to yet another corner while Rhea gets mad.

Wes runs in to CHOP again! Dom staggers and flops to the fourth corner, and he YANKS Wes into buckles! Dom stomps a mudhole into Wes but the ref counts. Dom lets off at 4 and the ref warns him. Dom digs his boots in, springboard stomps Wes again and again, a la Finn, and Rhea lounges on the apron. Dom digs his knee into Wes, then sits Wes up into a chinlock. Wes endures as Dom squeezes tight, and Rhea is all smiles. Wes fights up, throws elbows, and NXT returns to single picture as Dom throws Wes by his hair! Fans boo but Dom drags Wes up. Dom gives us some Latino Heat and then suplexes! Uni Amigo!

Dom gets up, brings Wes around, DOS AMIGOS! Fans boo more, and Dom gives some more Latino Heat. THREE- NO, Wes slips free but Dom dodges to DROPKICK! Wes staggers around, fans chant “YOU’RE NOT EDDIE!” and “LET HIM COOK!” Wes is on ropes, Dom dials it up, 619! Dom gets Wes up to scoop and MICHINOKU DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up while Rhea is furious! Dom frowns and he drags Wes around to stomp. Fans chant chant “WHAT SIDE?” “WES SIDE!” Dom goes up a corner, tells fans to shut up, and gives more Latino Heat. Fans boo but Dom FROG SPLASHES and FLOPS as Wes moves!

Rhea worries and coaches Dom but fans again chant “YOU’RE NOT EDDIE!” Dom and Wes rise, and Wes throws a haymaker! Dom gives it back, so Wes UPPERCUTS! Dom staggers but he forearms back! Wes ROCKS Dom, but Dom throws a body shot! Wes headlocks, but Dom hits a BIG back suplex! Dom dumps Wes hard and then pushes him to a cover, TWO! Dom stomps and rains down fists on Wes as the fans go back to “YOU’RE NOT READY!” Dom paces around and blows snot at the fans. Now that’s dirty! Dom stalks Wes, drags him up, and whips him to a corner hard! Wes bounces off buckles and falls to the mat!

Fans boo but Rhea likes what she sees as Dom storms up on Wes. Dom drags Wes up by his hair, and ROCKS him with a right! Dom whips corner to corner, runs in but Wes BOOTS! Wes snarls and swings body shots and haymakers! Wes fires off from all sides on Dom and has him on the ropes! Wes whips, Dom reverses but Wes CLOBBERS Dom! And again! Wes fires off more fast hands, kicks, but Dom powers out of the snapmare! Wes comes back to kick and kick and DOUBLE STOMP! Fans rally but Rhea stares Wes down. Wes runs in but Dom dodges. Wes goes back and HEEL KICKS!

Wes goes up now, and he FLYING CHUCKS! Wes goes back up to FLYING DDT!! Dom flounders and Rhea gest him out of the ring! Dom staggers but Wes fires up! Wes builds speed, but Dom gets away. Dom grabs the belt? Fans boo, Dom says it’s his now! The ref reprimands, but Wes DIVES and hits Dom at the ramp! Wes puts Dom in the ring, goes up the corner, and he SKY TWISTERS! But FINN IS HERE! AND DAMIAN! But Wes avoids Damian’s cheap shot to CARDIAC KICK!! Wes aims, but Rhea CLOBBERS him with HER belt!! Fans freak out as Dom crawls to the cover!! DOM WINS!!

Winner: Dominik Mysterio, by pinfall (NEW NXT North American Champion)

The Judgment Day does it again! They pull out the numbers game trump card, and Dom just stole the gold! Dom has his first singles gold in WWE, and Ali’s concern is justified. Will Wes find a way to correct this before The Great American Bash? Or will the Judgment Day truly take over the WWE by any means necessary?

My Thoughts:

What a wild episode of NXT with just 12 days before Great American Bash. And the wildest was that main event! I did not think they’d pull this move with Dom beating Wes for the title, but this is the Judgment Day, a faction that WWE is really getting behind. Ali had a good promo with Wes but great tie-in that Ali was worried something would happen because he knows how sneaky the Judgment Day can be. Wes’ streak ends suddenly, so great shock value that might actually make NXT feel must-see to those only watching RawDown. Dom is definitely bringing that belt to Raw next week just to rub it in, and I wonder/hope if Wes shows up to demand his rematch.

Also nice tie-in from Tony D’Angelo playing along with “Dom really was in a real prison, honest,” good stuff. Tony’s homecoming promo segment was of course interrupted by Gallus, and great little brawl. Bringing out the sticks and crowbars makes me wonder if they’ll escalate things to a No Disqualification tag match. I kinda like that, it’d make it so there’s no Champion’s Advantage, and if Tony & Stacks did lose, at least they’d be strong because perhaps Joe gets involved. And great win from Thea over Elektra and really good promo with Tiffany. I knew as soon as Tiff said “and you can’t make me,” she was gonna get tapped out by Thea. A Submission match is going to be great stuff, and this might be why and how Tiffany joins forces with Gulak & Dempsey.

Great combo of NXT Anonymous spying on Roxie and Booker T and then Roxie and Blair having their video interviews. But also an interesting move for Blair to brush off Roxie’s anger. I guess, in kayfabe, Blair didn’t watch NXT while she was away because she would’ve seen Roxie go off on Gigi & Jacy when they were still Toxic Attraction. I almost hope that Roxie will beat down Blair and get herself disqualified just so she gets the (sorta) moral victory by showing Blair that Roxie can be dangerous. And then we got a decent rematch from Kiana and Gigi and of course Kiana wins. I’m still hoping on a stipulation based blowoff between the two, with paint and office supplies as the weapons.

Really surprised by Scrypts setting Axiom up like that. Very similar to how Shayna did Ronda at Money in the Bank, but I would think Scrypts stays the Heel in this whereas Shayna became the Face. But either way, it was natural for Price & Nima to win as the new team. It did seem weird Scrypts was trying to be Axiom’s pal anyway, so now they can really go to another level as enemies. And I loved Dar the entire time Meta Four was on screen tonight. It’s almost like Weekend at Bernie’s where Dar is dead and Lash is puppeting him around. But clever way to use him as a distraction so Dijak can attack Eddy and they all give Oro the win.

I still think someone needs to point out that Dar didn’t lose the cup to Frazer, Oro did, and that will revive Dar and he goes for a rematch against Frazer. Great tag match from Frazer & Dragon VS Los Lotharios, and of course the Faces win. But I did not expect Humberto to get so mad at Garza. I hope those two don’t break up NXT is such a stacked tag division and there doesn’t seem to be a good opening in the RawDown divisions, so maybe them splitting up is the best thing for both of them right now. As for Frazer & Dragon, I do hope we see them stick together, Frazer defending the Heritage Cup and Dragon going after either the North American or even top title.

And great stuff in the top title’s story. Great promo with Trick Melo Gang and Dragunov, and then interaction with them against The Schism. I am definitely looking forward to the Six Man Tag of The Schism VS Dragunov, Melo & Trick. Dragunov and Melo of course are the “Can they coexist?” element on their team, but between Ivy Nile having no one around and wanting payback on Ava, or even The Creeds revealing themselves from among the masked followers, there could still be something that causes The Schism to lose.

Also, Ivy taking down the banner was a really sad moment in a way, because it makes you think of how promising the faction was when it started in the last days of Black ‘n’ Gold NXT, but then got changed up a bit during 2.0. Maybe Ivy is taking down the banner as a fake out, and after the Creeds get one last revenge on The Schism, Ivy also leaves with Julius & Brutus to RawDown (probably more SmackDown) so the dojo can’t stay in one place, the Diamond Mine is going to be traveling around the world now.

My Score: 8.7/10

Backstage interview with Hook and Katsuyori Shibata.

Lexi Nari is with the FTW Champion and The Wrestler, and notes we saw Hook make the save for Shibata during Collision against Shane Taylor Promotions. At the same time, Hook is about to face Shane Taylor himself with the FTW title on the line. Knowing what Shane’s capable of, what is Hook’s strategy going into that match? Shibata uses his voice-to-text translator say, “Pardon the interruption… Hook, I’ll have your back tonight.” Hook appreciates that, but even knowing what Shane’s capable of, Hook’s got his own way of handling this. Shibata says bet, and Hook gives him the fist bump.

FTW Championship: Hook VS Shane Taylor w/ Anthony Ogogo!

The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil knows he’s up against a bad, bad man, but this is FTW Rules! Everyone who fights for this title is a bad, bad man, so will Hook prove he’s the baddest? Or will Shane #SendHook back to New York without his gold?

Backstage interview with Rocky Romero.

Lexi is with Azucar as he is just moments away from his Title Eliminator match for the International Championship. However, Lexi wants to know if he knows what’s going on with Best Friends. Rocky says Chuck, Trent and Orange Cassidy are like brothers to him, and yet he has no idea what’s going on there. But right now, he can’t really worry about that, he has to focus on the match with Roderick Strong. When Rocky wins, he’ll be one step closer to fulfilling his destiny of becoming International Champion. Kyle O’Reilly pops in, wishes Rocky luck, and then heads back out. Will Azucar be able to get one over on the Savior of the Backbreaker? Or will he just end up broken?


AEW International Championship Eliminator: Roderick Strong w/ The Undisputed Kingdom VS Rocky Romero!

While Azucar is confident, it was just last night on Rampage that Roddy took offense to him and Kyle O’Reilly even thinking there was a chance this match doesn’t go The Undisputed Kingdom’s way. Will Roddy prove them all wrong by crossing Rocky off the list? Or is this were The Kingdom starts to crumble?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans are behind Rocky as he and Roddy tie up. Rocky waistlocks, Roddy wrenches to wristlock, but Rocky rolls, wrenches and wristlocks back. Roddy tries to pull hair but Rocky twists the wrist. Roddy pulls on Rocky’s ear to have the headlock and takeover. Rocky fights up, pops out the back, and then steps over. Rocky hooks an arm but Roddy fights off the takedown to hip toss and cover. ONE, but Roddy facelocks. Rocky fights up, pries at the hold, but Roddy holds on tight.

Rocky is still in this but Roddy stays on Rocky with stomps. Roddy stomps and stomps as BOTB returns to single picture. Roddy goes back to the motorcycle stretch but the fans rally again. Rocky fights up, fights back, and he KICKS Roddy’s leg! And KICKS! Roddy CLUBS Rocky, eggs Rocky on, but Rocky roars! Rocky fires forearms, then UPPERCUTS! Roddy wobbles, Rocky KICKS and KICKS and SOBATS!

Rocky CHOPS, whips, but Roddy reverses. Rocky reverses back to kick, but Roddy ducks the enzigiri! Rocky REWIND HEEL KICKS! Roddy flops out of the ring and the fans fire up! Rocky builds speed, fakes Roddy out and DIVES onto Taven! Then Rocky DIVES onto Roddy! Rocky puts Roddy in, runs up, SLICED BREAD! Cover, TWO!! Roddy survives but Rocky keeps his cool.

Winner: Roderick Strong, by pinfall (denies Rocky Romero a title opportunity)

The Kingdom helps Roddy, whether Roddy will say it that way or not. Kyle is here to celebrate with his friend, but he also checks on his other friend in Rocky. Kyle helps Rocky up to his feet, and wants the fans to give it up for Rocky. But then Wardlow LARIATS Rocky, and The Kingdom stomps away! Kyle has them stop, this isn’t cool! But then Roddy STRONG KNEES Kyle down?!? The fans boo as Roddy tells Kyle that he could do it on his own, but there’s only ONE man that can be International Champion! Kyle made the wrong decision! Roddy’s arrogance just ended his friendship with Kyle, will Kyle make Roddy pay for that?


Backstage interview with Serena Deeb.

Lexi Nair is with the Professor of Professional Wrestling and notes how last week, Serena walked on stage after Yuka Sakazaki’s return victory. Why? Serena says she was sitting in the back, watching that impressive match, and thought to herself that she was watching a great pro-wrestler. Someone that Serena would love to tear it up with. Tonight, the Professor is here on BOTB, but has no championship opportunity. She’s not sweating it, though. Since her return, Serena is undefeated. She checked the rankings, and The Professor is sitting pretty at Number 3! So week by week, she’s climbing her way up to inevitably become champion.

Serena tells Yuka, that was an invitation. To where? Into the Deeb Dojo! Serena will show Yuka that Serena is better, and that she is what she says she is: The Professor of Pro-Wrestling! Serena wants to test herself against the Wrestling Magical Girl, but who will be the one taking a step closer to a title opportunity?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

After Roddy’s sudden rejection of Kyle O’Reilly, they are now going to battle over the International Championship! It’s the fight neither man wanted, but will Kyle give Roddy payback for what he did with interest?


ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena w/ Billie Starkz VS Red Velvet!

The Fallen Goddess is 49-0 after defeating Hikaru Shida on Supercard of Honor last week, and when she says she’s the Forever Champion, she means that. But will “forever” come to a crashing halt in Kentucky? Or will The Chef be the one getting served an L?

The introductions are made by Lexi Nair, so just a little biased in Athena’s favor. The belt is raised, and here in the main event, we see who is the face of the ROH Women’s Division!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings and the fans fire up for Athena already. The two circle, tie up, and they go around. They go into a corner, along ropes, then Athena throws Velvet down. Velvet holds on, they roll on the mat with the collar ‘n’ elbow, then they stand up. Athena puts Velvet in a corner, the ref counts, but Athena lets off with a cocky smile. Velvet keeps cool and resets with Athena. They tie up. Velvet wrenches an arm to wristlock, but Athena handsprings and wrenches back. Velvet rolls, kips up, and wrenches back. Velvet headlocks but Athena powers up and out. Velvet runs Athena over, but Athena kips up!

The fans fire up while both women brush themselves off. They reset again, tie up, and Athena headlocks. Velvet powers up and out, but Athena wrenches to whip. Velvet ducks ‘n’ dodges and tilt-o-whirls to RANA, but Athena handsprings through! The fans fire up and Athena cheers herself on. But Velvet DROPKICSK Athena down! Athena gets up, Velvet arm-drags, arm-drags again, and then Velvet cheers herself on. Athena runs up into another arm-drag! Velvet has the armlock but Athena fights up and throws Velvet down by her hair! The fans cheer but the ref reprimands, and things speed up.

Velvet drops, runs up and CALF KICKS Athena down! Athena bails out, Billie there to check on her. Velvet goes to the apron, Athena grabs a leg but Velvet kicks her away. Velvet then ASAI MOONSAULTS land takes Athena down! The fans fire up, Velvet drags Athena up and puts her in the ring, then has her on the apron. Velvet climbs up, brings Athena up, but Athena shoves her back. FLAPJACK off the top buckles! Velvet staggers, Athena reels her back in, APRON BACK SUPLEX! The fans fire up with Athena while BOTB goes picture in picture.

Velvet crawls into the ring but Athena follows her. Athena looms over Velvet, drags her up, then CLUBS her down. Athena stands Velvet up to whip her hard into a corner. Athena revels in the cheers before she runs in and back body blocks! Then Athena goes side to side to forearm SMASH! Athena smiles as Velvet leans against buckles. Athena shoves Velvet down, stomps her around, then drags her back up. Velvet fires body shots, but Athena bumps her off buckles. Velvet avoids the forearm to DOUBLE CHOP! Velvet fires body blows but Athena throws hands! Velvet CHOPS, Athena CHOPS, they CHOP, then Athena CHOPS Velvet off her feet!

The fans cheer while Athena snarls. Athena sits Velvet back up, KICKS her in the back, then KICKS her again! And again! Athena stands Velvet up, bumps her off buckles, then scoops to put Velvet in the Tree of Woe. Athena KICKS away on Velvet’s back, then lets her fall out of the Three. Billie applauds, tells Velvet she should’ve known better, but Velvet swipes at Billie. Billie gets away, cheers Athena on, but Velvet fires hands on Athena! Athena swings back but Velvet bobs ‘n’ weaves! Velvet ROCKS Athena, kicks her legs out, then runs up , into a SPINEBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Athena is annoyed but still in control as BOTB goes to break.

BOTB returns once again as Athena hits buckles! Velvet rallies on Athena with clothesline after clothesline! Velvet runs, tilt-o-whirls and RANAS Athena onto ropes! Velvet runs up to DOUBLE KNEE! Velvet shoves Athena down, runs, and tilt-o-whirls again, REVERSE DDT! Cover, TWO! Athena survives and Velvet is frustrated. Athena crawls away, wanting mercy! But Velvet storms up, only for Athena to YANK Velvet into buckles! Athena then fireman’s carries Velvet for the WASTELAND! Roll through and another fireman’s carry, for another WASTELAND! Another roll through, and then Athena mocks the stirrin’ it up motion!

But Velvet pops up to RANA! Cover, TWO!! Athena escapes, Velvet runs up to wheelbarrow, but Athena URENAGES her down! Cover, TWO!! Athena is furious as Velvet survives! Athena goes up a corner, the fans cheer, and Velvet rises. But Velvet ROUNDHOUSES first! Velvet ROCKS Athena, climbs up after her, then CHOPS! Velvet goes to the very top, to SUPER VICTORY THROW! Athena flounders but she ducks the buzzsaw! Roll up, Velvet rolls through! THE SLICE! And then the tilt-o-whirl DDT!! Cover, TWO!!! Athena survives and Velvet is fuming! Velvet pushes Athena around while the fans rally up.

Athena is in the drop zone, so Velvet goes up top. Velvet tells Billie to shut up, but Athena gets out to the apron. The fans boo but Velvet adjusts position, to leap and SUPER CROSSBODY! Athena catches her!? And then brings Velvet around to FALCON ARROW to the floor! The fans fire up as Athena roars, but so does Velvet as she rises! Only for the SUPERKICK to knock her down! Athena has a wild look on her face and Billie cheers on the Overlord. Athena gets Velvet up, THROWS her into the LED board, then THROWS her around again! Athena drags Velvet up and into the ring, storms in after her, and reels her in! Canadian Rack, but Velvet sunset flips it! TWO!!!

Athena escapes, Velvet runs up, ducks ‘n’ dodges then SUPERKICKS! But Athena DECKS Velvet with a forearm! Athena goes up top, Velvet rises in a daze, to get the O-FACE!! Cover, Athena wins!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

And that’s FIFTY and zero! Fifty wins, no losses, and no slowing down as she title belt clinks with Billie. But as is customary on ROH, Athena sets her belt down, and Billie does, too. They drag Velvet up, mock “stir it up,” but Velvet SLAPS Athena! And SLAPS Billie! But then Athena and Billie mug Velvet! The fans boo as Billie picks up her belt, takes aim, but then QUEEN AMINATA is here! Aminata runs down into the ring, dodges Billie to DECK Athena, then HEADBUTT for Billie! That’s payback for cheating in the TV title match! But then Athena runs up, into an Alabama Lift! AIR RAID CRASH!!

Aminata saves Velvet while also making her own impact, will The Queen not be denied her crown? Or will the Fallen Goddess look to make her pay for this insolence?

My Thoughts:

A really good BOTB but uh, after ten of these, we already know nothing really happens on these. Great action and promos like on Collision, but no titles were ever changing hands. And after two hours of Collision, the crowd was of course tired out. Hook of course defeated Shane but it was a really good showing of Hook’s resilience to take all that damage and still win. Really good match from Roddy and Rocky that Roddy of course won, and turns out I was right in thinking they’d fast track Roddy VS Kyle here. That match will be great stuff, but it’d be a shame if Kyle’s first title shot ends up a loss, even with The Kingdom all there to interfere and distract.

Good promo from Serena to make it clear that she’s having a match with Yuka, just in case it wasn’t clear last week. And then a great main event for the ROH Women’s Championship. Red Velvet looked great even in defeat, and natural move for Aminata to show up and go after Athena & Billie. Aminata really has her pick of the two titles at this point, and while payback on Billie for Supercard is an obvious route, why wouldn’t she go right to the source and take down Athena? Athena’s made it to 50-0, and if not when Athena faced Billie, not when she faced Nyla Rose nor when she faced Shida, her first loss should be to pass the torch to Aminata.

Aminata went through the grind, paid her dues, and has got organically over with ROH viewers, so if she isn’t gonna be the historic first Women’s TV Champ, make her the woman that takes down the top woman in ROH.

My Score: 8.6/10

Mitchell’s AEW Collision Results & Report! (4/13/24)

The Don Callis Family is out for blood!



Will the Blackpool Combat Club survive this Collision?

Before the Dynasty dream match of Ospreay VS Danielson, the Don Callis Family wants to not just beat the American Dragon, but to destroy him!


  • Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal; The House of Black wins.
  • Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty; Shibata wins.
  • Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico; Garcia wins.
  • AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay; Storm wins and denies AZM a title match.
  • Bryan Danielson & Claudio Castagnoli VS Will Hobbs & Kyle Fletcher; Bryan & Claudio win.


The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Bryan Danielson says BIG week for BCC. Jon Moxley is the NEW IWGP World Heavyweight Champion, a huge accomplishment. And on Wednesday, Claudio Castagnoli takes on Will Ospreay, then Bryan faces Ospreay at Dynasty. But there’s tonight first. Claudio says Don Callis gave Kyle Fletcher & Will Hobbs this motivational speech that they don’t even need to beat BCC, they just have to hurt BCC. How weird. But it’s easier to beat them than to hurt them, and what kind of faith does that show Callis has in Ospreay? Not much, it seems. Not sure what Callis is thinking. But Claudio has faith that all three of those guys could beat BCC.

But hurt them? People have been trying to hurt Claudio and Bryan for 20 years. Because they see the spotlight, they see how successful BCC is, and they see BCC all over the world. Bryan couldn’t be stopped by a broken orbital bone nor a broken arm. And Claudio’s been fighting week after week after week, consistently like Swiss clockwork for over 15 YEARS. Because it’s not about the work and the talk here in front of the camera, but the work behind cameras, the stuff you don’t see, that goes into making this look so easy at the level they are at. Bryan agrees there, and tells Don Callis that he wants his guys to hurt them, to hurt Bryan and to hurt Claudio.

Guess what?! That’s not gonna fly tonight! Because Bryan goes out there every single night to hurt people! That’s what BCC does! Violence is their specialty! DCF will not only see that tonight, but on Wednesday and in St. Louis. The American Dragon is all fired up, but will he and the Swiss Superman burn down the Powerhouse and the Protostar?


Six Man Tag: The House of Black VS Dante Martin, Action Andretti & Matt Sydal!

Malakai Black, Brody King & Buddy Matthews are preparing for the coming war with Adam Copeland, Mark Briscoe & Eddie Kingston, but they’re taking on three men who are much different from Copeland, Briscoe & Kingston.

Backstage interview with Toni Storm, Mariah May & Luther.

Lexi Nair is with the AEW Women’s World Champion, as well as her protege and her butler, and says we saw a lot on Dynamite. Kissing, champagne, and- “Yes, we did see a lot, didn’t we, darling? Get used to it. Because we saw a Champion’s Champagne Celebration that made an Italian woman curse, and turned Lightning Daffodil into a diddling do-how! And as for the kissing… There has been no greater love than this.” Storm turns to Mariah, but Lexi interrupts by saying she meant the kiss Mariah had with Mina- Mariah cuts Lexi off there. Can’t Lexi see Toni has a lot on her plate right now?

Toni has a title defense on a PPV coming soon, AND a match against AZM tonight. Plus, Anna Jay’s all serious~ right now. Yes, yes, Azumi-san. You want her to kiss your bottom? Well, that makes you and a thousand other perverts! Toni will give AZM a beating so intense, it’ll be featured in a fetish periodical! And the name of that publication? Chin up, tits out, and watch for the shoe…! The leading lady leads the way out, will she send AZM crying back to Stardom?


AEW shares footage from after Dynamite.

Chris Jericho found Taz backstage to talk with him about the Six Man Tag. We all saw what happened, and Jericho just wants to explain himself to Hook. Jericho is just trying to do what’s right for Hook but Hook won’t listen. Hook won’t answer his phone or his texts, but Taz knows his son better than anyone. Can Taz please ask Hook if he’ll talk to Jericho? Taz says he’ll try, a lot of the time he doesn’t really hear from Hook, Hook’s his own man. Of course, of course. Taz says Jericho may have pissed Hook off. And when Hook gets pissed, it’s… Well, Taz will try.

Jericho appreciates that, and as it turns out, this coming Wednesday, Taz will broker a face to face! Will #LionHook still make it work? Or will this Jericho only #SendHook into a stronger rage?


Katsuyori Shibata VS Lee Moriarty w/ Shane Taylor Promotions!

The Wrestler got caught by #TAIGASTYLE all because Lionheart Jericho couldn’t get out of his own way. Will Shibata be able to handle things much better on his own? Or will Moriarty sink his fangs into Shibata one more time?

Lee flops in a corner, Shibata fires more forearms on him! Shibata UPPERCUTS, then JABS, then COHPS! JAB CHOP JAB CHOP!

Lee sits down, Shibata COHPS and CHOPS and runs, HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! The fans fire up for Shibata’s signature and STP looks upset! Shibata snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Lee stays in this and both men catch their breaths, but Shibata gets Lee up. Lee switches around to COBRA TWIST! The fans rally as Shibata endures, and Shibata pries at the grip.

Winner: Katsuyori Shibata, by pinfall

Moriarty put up a fight, but it wasn’t enough to win. So Shane Taylor attacks from behind! The fans boo as Shane stomps Shibata at the ropes then talks trash! But here comes HOOK! The Cold-Hearted Handsome Devil won’t let Shane beat up his friend like that! Lee runs up but Hook catches him for an EL CAMINO! Shane stares Hook down, their FTW Championship match set for later tonight on Battle of the Belts. But given that, Shane stands down and STP regroups. They’ll look to handle this later, but it be rumble, bad man, rumble?


Backstage interview with Athena & Billie Starkz.

Lexi Nair is in her Minion In Training Letterman’s jacket as this is an Emergency Minion Empowerment Meeting! She is with the ROH Women’s World Champion AND ROH Women’s Television Champion, and Athena defends her title against Red Velvet in the main event of Battle of the Belts! The main event, ON TNT, LIVE! Athena deserves this because she is that damn good! Billie agrees, but says Red is really good. She made it really far in the Women’s TV Title tournament. Yes, but Billie won that, right? She did! So Athena knows Red Velvet is a top star, Red Velvet is a threat, but Athena is the TOP champion! The BEST champion in wrestling today!

Athena is the Minion Overlord, the Fallen Goddess, the REAL Alpha, the Forever Champion, and tonight, Athena makes an example out of Velvet to show the world what they’ve been missing. Will Athena be the one serving L’s to The Chef tonight?


Backstage interview with The Undisputed Kingdom.

Collision returns as Lexi is now with Roderick Strong, Mike Bennett & Matt Taven and says as of late, they’ve had a lot of success. Would they attribute any of that success to Wardlow? “LEXIII~! How dare you. How dare you give credit to anybody but me.” Roddy is a fighting champion, a giving champion. Do you not see the opportunity Roddy is giving to these gentlemen who do not even deserve it? He is making them earn it because they do not deserve it. How dare she? But hey, Roddy has been doing it on his own, just like Kyle O’Reilly. Kyle inspires Roddy.

But enough about that, let’s talk tonight. Tonight, Roddy puts on a show. What’s the show called? The Beating of a Lifetime! That’s the Kingdom’s favorite show! But will Rocky Romero cancel that show to make it The Azucar Hour?


Daniel Garcia VS Angelico w/ Serpentico!

The Dragonslayer has been getting back up with win after win, and he doesn’t plan on stopping now! Will he turn it up a notch as we get closer and closer to Dynasty? Or will the South African Stud prove he’s still worthy of some opportunities, too?

The bell rings, the fans rally and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Angelico wrenches to a hammerlock. Angelico spins Garcia, wristlocks, but Garcia pries the hold open to wrench back. Angelico spins, slips through, spins Garcia, then slips around again to arm-drag! Garcia gets up fast but Angelico does his own dance. The fans boo but Garcia keeps cool. The two tie up, Garcia waistlocks, spins, snapmares, ghost pin, TWO! Angelico is up but Garcia clinches to to arm-drag! Leg-sweep, cover, ONE! Angelico puts a leg guard up as he calls for a timeout! The fans cheer as Garcia shows sportsmanship and lets Angelico get up.

Angelico and Garcia reset, knuckle lock, then Angelico trips Garcia. Angelico rolls Garcia, whips, but Garcia reverses.

The fans fire up as Angelico endures! Angelico’s shoulders are down, ONE as he sits back up. Garcia puts on the pressure but Angelico turns things over! Garcia endures now, but he fights it back over! Angelico endures again, stays off the mat, and turns things over again! Garcia turns it back! Then Angelico, then Garcia! Angelico has it! Garcia has it! Angelico has it again, Garcia has it back, ROPEBREAK! The fans cheer as the two kick at each other while the hold is undone. They both stand, Garcia kicks but Angelico kicks back. Garcia kicks, Angelico kicks, repeat! Garcia kicks more and more, runs, but the leg bothers him!

Garcia beats his leg into working, the fans rally behind him, and he stands. Garcia counter punches Angelico, then does it again! Garcia then wrenches and BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! The fans fire up as Garcia runs in at the corner to forearm SMASH! Garcia climbs up, rains down fists, and goes to nine before he puts up his dukes, to DO HIS DANCE! The fans fire up as Garcia hops down and runs corner to corner, HAYMAKER! Garcia runs up again, choke grip!

Angelico breaks free, Garcia CHOPS and SAIDOS! Garcia storms around, gets the legs, KNEEBAR!! Angelico flails, reaches out, but TAPS, Garcia wins!

Winner: Daniel Garcia, by submission

A great fight leads to a great win for Red Death! Will this momentum help Garcia be primed for a title match on the other side of Dynasty?


Pac speaks.

“Kazuchika Okada. Believe it or not, bonny lad, I would like to thank you. Not only for accepting my challenge, but also for walloping me around the head with a big dirty lump of steel. That was very brave of you, wasn’t it, huh? And now, as a result, I have a perpetual headache that serves as motivation to remind everybody of exactly who I am. Now I may not be tall and handsome, I am not a Japanese superstar, I do not own a Ferrari, and I’m certainly not flavor of the month. Okada, you may think you’re God’s gift to professional wrestling, but you’re not! You’re CRAP! And what I am is better than you!

“And next Sunday, at AEW Dynasty, live from St. Louis, Missouri, I am going to relish the opportunity to prove it in front of the entire world. You understand me, hm? Good.” The Bastard is ready, will he violently end The Rainmaker’s reign?


AEW Women’s World Championship Eliminator: Toni Storm w/ Luther & Mariah May VS AZM w/ Anna Jay!

The leading lady of AEW knows her next big picture will have “Lightning Daffodil” starring against her, but she has to be careful not to take tonight’s performance too lightly. Will Storm strike down AZM here in Kentucky? Or will the Highspeed Superstar find her way into the Dynasty picture?

The bell rings and the fans rally up already. The two circle, feel things out, and then tie up. Storm throws AZM down then laughs at her, but AZM gets right up. They reset, circle again, and tie up. They go around, Storm puts AZM on ropes, then sits her down! Storm poses and the fans cheer, but AZM is right up to fire forearms! The fans rally, Storm just shrugs those off! AZM runs to RAM Storm but Storm still laughs! AZM runs and RAMS Storm again, Storm chuckles this time. AZM fakes a punch to stomp Storm’s foot! AZM runs, but Storm follows and runs AZM over! The fans cheer but then AZM kips right up!

AZM ducks ‘n’ dodges, trips Storm then keeps moving, PENALTY KICK! Basement dropkick! The fans fire up as AZM kips up again! AZM pushes Storm around, steps on her, and the ref counts. AZM steps away at 4, the fans rally up, and AZM runs to DOUBLE STOMP! Cover, ONE!! Storm toughs it out and the fans rally as AZM goes to the apron. AZM climbs, Storm DECKS her! Storm then runs to HIP ATTACK AZM to the floor! AZM tumbles away to the ramp, but Anna gets Mariah in a QUEENSLAYER SLEEPER! Mariah RAMS Anna into railing! Mariah and Anna fight now, the fans fire up, and AZM gets outta the way!

Storm is flabbergasted as Anna and Mariah brawl their way to the back! Storm fetches AZM but AZM whips her into steel steps! Then AZM pushes Storm around, goes up the apron, and fans fire up for the PENALTY KICK! Storm is dazed but the fans fire up as Collision goes picture in picture.

AZM shoves Storm in, goes up top, then MISSILE DROPKICKS! Storm flounders all the way across the ring! AZM storms over to drag Storm up, but Storm HOTSHOTS her!

Storm stomps AZM, drags her up, and Collision returns to single picture as Storm stomps AZM in a corner. Storm pie faces AZM, taunts her, but AZM rises. The fans fire up as AZM fires forearms! Storm ROCKS AZM in return! AZM fires another forearm, Storm ROCKS her again! AZM fires more forearms, then blocks a kick to ROUNDHOUSE!

AZM tumbles and flounders into a corner, and Storm takes aim! She’s ready for her close-up! SWEET HIP MUSIC~! STORM ZERO PILEDRIVER!! Cover, Storm wins!

Winner: Toni Storm, by pinfall (denies AZM a title opportunity)

That was certainly fast and furious, but you can’t beat a classic like Timeless Toni! Mariah returns from backstage with a couple glasses of the bubbly. Mariah and Toni link arms while they drink up, and Storm brings Mariah to her bosom. Storm cuddles Mariah, then shoves her, then drags her back up to bring her away. Will nothing and no one take the spotlight away from the AEW Women’s World Champion?


Backstage interview with Red Velvet.

Lexi Nair is now with The Chef and brings up tonight’s title match with Athena. How is Velvet feeling about such a high profile match? High profile? Red Velvet IS high profile! And she saw what Lexi’s “boss,” Athena had to say, really stirring up the pot. But Athena, you wanna stir it up? They can stir it up? In BOTB’s main event, Red Velvet will knock you out! Red Velvet is not a stranger to main events, title pictures or high profile matches. Tonight, Velvet makes an example out of Athena, and shows everyone why it was a mistake for Athena to step into Velvet’s kitchen! Will The Chef make Athena eat crow while serving up that L?


Mark Briscoe speaks.

“Now House of Black, I’ve been doing this dance with y’all a little while now, and I’m starting to understand how y’all operate. Starting to understand y’all’s M-O. You try to intimidate me. You try to strike fear into the hearts of men. Well I done told you, I fear no man, I fear no evil. And ancient wisdom says the violent take it by force. Now lemme tell you, Eddie Kingston, Adam Copeland, and Mark Briscoe, we some violent men! And at Dynasty, we bringing the violence, babeh! So heed my advice, House of Black! Be afraid, be very afraid!” The Sussex County Chicken is ready for a fight, will he, the Rated R Superstar and Mad King tear down The House of Black once and for all?


Tony Schiavone is on stage.

He says Dynasty is coming, and a big match on that card is the AEW Women’s World title, Timeless Toni Storm VS the former champion, Thunder Rosa! The fans cheer as La Mera Mera makes her way out and joins Schiavone on stage. Schiavone says we saw what happened on Dynamite when Storm hit her with champagne and smudged her face paint. But the fact is, Rosa never lost her title. She has a chance to redeem herself and get the title back. Rosa says that is right. Before that, she wants to address something else. See all these people here? She wants to thank all of them for making this comeback so special for her.

And of course, thank you to everyone watching at home seeing them on TBS, TNT and all over the world! Without you, we wouldn’t have made all these wonderful memories the last five years. Without you, we wouldn’t have made AEW what it is today. The fans cheer that, and Rosa says she is here for a reason. That is to remind people that she doesn’t need help. And she means you, too, Deonna Purrazzo. Rosa wants to remind everyone that she’s done a lot on her own. When she earned her college degree, she earned her US citizenship, she helped a lot of people as a social worker, and won all those matches even before AEW, and especially when she won the AEW title.

But most importantly, Rosa fought so hard here to be in AEW, and she’s still here in AEW, because it is where the best wrestle! And “Antonia,” Rosa thought you believed the same things. What happened to you, homegirl? Weren’t they together in the ring? Weren’t they #ThunderStorm? When did Storm go completely crazy!? Rosa was so proud of being a champion, even though her body couldn’t carry her as far as her passion. Rosa had to heal. Then that day, something died inside of her. But Rosa has a chance, another opportunity, and it is important that Toni knows it will happen in St. Louis.

Rosa wants to humble Toni, to remind her that Rosa didn’t leave because she “couldn’t carry” the weight of that title. At Dynasty, Rosa carries more than that title. She will carry the pride of HER people, of her family, and if she has to break every single bone in her body to uplift and empower the women of this locker room fighting for just one opportunity and respect, because they also believe in AEW… Then Antonia, kiss your little clone goodbye. You made a big mistake on trying to erase Rosa’s mask. You don’t wanna see what’s underneath. You can’t kill what’s already dead! And on Sunday, Rosa comes for Storm, for the title, and to drag Storm’s soul to HELL!!

La Mera Mera is all fired up, and she smears her own face paint to make her point. Will she smash that spotlight and leave the leading lady in the dark?


Deonna Purrazzo speaks.

“Thunder Rosa, if you don’t want my help, that’s fine. I’ll help myself. When I staked my claim at the AEW Women’s World Championship, it wasn’t personal. It’s because frankly, I don’t think Toni Storm embodies what it means to be a world champion. But I do. I’m a workhorse, I’m a thoroughbred, I am the Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo. And I could stand here, make excuses about why I’m not the AEW Women’s World Champion right now, or I could do something about it. It seems if I can’t get one Toni Storm, I might as well get the other. So next week, Mariah May VS The Virtuosa, Deonna Purrazzo, and I’m gonna break your arm.”

The message has been sent, will Deonna make sure the leading lady’s understudy won’t make it to Dynasty to support Toni Storm?


BREAKING NEWS for Dynasty!

No pinfalls or submissions, only the team that can literally rise above will become the NEW AEW World Tag Team Champions! But is this still playing right into the EVPs’ hands?

My Thoughts:

Really good Collision, though half of it was a go-home to BOTB X with it being on right after this. Good promos from Athena and Billie, from The Undisputed Kingdom, and Red Velvet, but yeah, no titles are changing hands, even if it is the tenth BOTB special. Good promo from Mark Briscoe to add hype to the coming Six Man Tag, and of course The House of Black won tonight’s Six Man Tag. Good promo from Storm and Mariah ahead of Storm’s match with AZM that Storm of course won, but also good stuff with Anna and Mariah fighting. Good promos from Rosa and Deonna to add to the build, and maybe Rosa beats Storm at Dynasty, but hard to say with a week still to go.

Good promo from Jericho and Taz to set up this whole “meeting” with Hook, and I have a feeling that is where #LionHook really falls apart and we get Jericho VS Hook for the FTW Championship at Dynasty, or maybe Double or Nothing at the latest. Really good match from Shibata and Moriarty, and good save from Hook after to add a little more to the FTW Championship match scheduled for BOTB. Great match from Garcia VS Angelico though it was just for the sake of having a great match. I think I said before but Garcia really should get at a title after Dynasty, just not sure what title that’ll be.

Pac has a good promo to call out Okada, and then quite the big move for the tag title match to now be a ladder match. If feel like that’s just them telegraphing that The Bucks are winning because ladder matches are certainly more their thing than FTR’s. And good promos from both BCC and DCF, though the latter wasn’t needed other than to fill time. We know what Kyle & Hobbs were gonna go for after Callis’ promo, we didn’t need them doubling down on it. And while BCC of course won the match, the DCF then of course attacked after. The math here is a bit of a wash, Claudio surely loses to Ospreay, and then Ospreay and Bryan go in more or less even so it could be anyone’s win at Dynasty.

My Score: 8.7/10
