Trick Melo Gang talks backstage.

The Great American Bash was crazy! That was Melo’s toughest challenge and his greatest performance. It could’ve gone either way, and Trick says that’s why he used that belt as motivation. Melo appreciates it, and apologizes for Trick taking that headbutt from Ilja. That was somewhere between bad luck and instincts. Trick says to forget that, as long as Melo got the W. That’s what it is, and that’s all it’s gonna be. But uh, check this. Now that Dragunov is in the rearview, Trick means what he said. Well, he said a lot last week. Trick says he’s gotta start doing things for himself. Melo says go ahead, get your bag.

No, Melo doesn’t understand what Trick means. Trick says they’re always gonna be friends, ride or die. But Trick ain’t a sidekick. Melo never said he was! He doesn’t see Trick like that! Trick says Melo may not, but “they” do! Melo is Melo, he’s on top and doing his thing, rightfully so. Maybe one of the best ever. But Trick isn’t a champion. Melo is. Melo beat the Mad Dragon, but Trick needs to get one for himself. Trick needs to show Dragunov that Trick can slay dragons, too. Melo says damn. He respects that. Trick says this ain’t a break-up, he just has to be his own man. Well, Melo has Trick’s back. Shoot for the stars and don’t miss. They shake on it, and Trick heads out. Will Trick bring gold of his own to Trick Melo Gang?

 

Tony & Stacks are getting checked out in the medical wing.

Stacks says that was some bull. McKenzie Mitchell walks over and brings up the attack. Not exactly what they expected for tonight. Does the doctor have a medical update for them? Tony speaks up first, saying the update is that Gallus are dead men walking. That was an act of desperation. They lost the titles at GAB, and now- And NOW, they can just turn their car right back around and get in the building. Tony wants Gallus, and he means ALL of Gallus. Stacks brings up how that’s 3v2! Then Tony will make a call. To who? Stacks knows who. Tony just hopes he’ll pick up. Tony & Stacks head out, despite the doctor’s wishes. Just who will be the third man for the Family?

 

Dominik Mysterio & Rhea Ripley are here!

Fans boo as “Dirty” Dom and Mami walk to the ring, Dom still holding onto the North American Championship only because of Mami. Rhea gets the mics to say, “AND STILL your NXT North American Champion… DIRTY DOMINIK MYSTERIO~!” Fans boo as Dom says, “Mami’s always right.” Rhea agrees, and says at the GAB, Dom proved he’s more of a man than Wes Lee and Mustafa Ali, and certainly more of a man than every single man in the crowd. And that makes Dom the greatest luchador that’s ever lived! Rhea says that’s facts. Dom continues to prove every- OH! Here comes Dragon Lee!

Fans fire up as the Wonder Boy has his own mic. Dragon tells Dom, “I won’t let you disrespect the NXT Universe or your heritage any longer.” Rhea laughs and tells Dom it’s Rey Mysterio Jr. Jr. Dragon says he doesn’t like Rhea. And Dom, if Dragon has this right, Dom says he’s the greatest luchador of all time? Dragon does not believe that, the fans do not believe that, and even Dom doesn’t believe that! Because the greatest luchador of all time is TU PADRE, REY Mysterio! Dom says HE makes the Mysterio name relevant! HE is the champion! Ah ah ah ah ah! Dragon knows Dom is only champion because his Mami was there.

Dragon can’t even understand it! How is it Rhea has Dom’s… cajones in her purse. Rhea looks Dragon up and down, and then says Dom’s are still bigger than Dragon’s. Then prove it! Next week, for the title! Rhea says okay and Dom says he is a fighting champion. We’ll see what happens next week. Rhea will of course be in Dom’s corner, she is all he needs. And wherever her Latino Heat goes, she goes. Perfect! Cuz next week, Dragon won’t be alone, either. Dragon looks to the tron, and REY has a message for Dom! Fans go nuts as Rey tells little Dominik that guess what? Rey is proud to say that he is coming to NXT to be in the corner of someone he truly respects! The future of lucha libre, Dragon Lee!

And hate to break it to you, but Rey will have the best seat in the house, and he can’t wait as Dragon just totally… Well, you know. Dragon’s gonna take that North American Championship! See you then. Dom and Rhea are upset, but will they still find a way to do this title dirty?

 

Melo is on the phone.

But then Wes storms in and throws some stuff around. Melo asks what’s up, what’s wrong? Wes says it’s not Melo’s concern, he should worry about recovering from his match with Dragunov. Melo still asks what’s bugging Wes. Does Melo care? Man, save the self-pity! Self pity?! Wes throws a chair aside as he shouts he has lost THREE WEEKS IN A ROW! Melo is on top of the world as NXT Champion after tearing the house down in Texas, and Wes is scraping by and fighting for his life. Don’t dare act like you know what Wes is going through!

Melo tells Wes to calm the hell down because Wes doesn’t understand what it is to BE NXT Champion. Melo went through a war on Sunday. Melo can barely even breathe, but you don’t see him complaining and whining. Another man will step up to the plate, Dragunov will want a rematch. Nobody gets it, since y’all ain’t ever lived it. Now Melo gets why Breakker snapped. Oh, Wes knows what it is to be a champion. But in steps Noam Dar with Oro Mensah. Look at this mad, sad little boys. Well life ain’t sweet if you ain’t Meta Four. And life IS sweet! Dar has something neither of them will ever have, and that’s the Heritage Cup Championship.

Uh, Dar, you’re not the Cup Champion. It’s Frazer. Oh, Wes wants to get real? Well, Wes never beat Dar, but Dom beat Wes twice! Wes step sup, Oro pushes him, and a brawl breaks out! Other superstars step in between these four, will the Scottish Supernova and his main man end up humbled but Wes and HIM?

 

Backstage interview with Chase U.

McKenzie is with Andre Chase, Duke Hudson and Thea Hail as she brings up the second loss to Tiffany. It was an incredible fight, but Thea was rather emotional after. How is she feeling now? Thea says she gave it everything she had, left it all in the ring, and Chase threw in the towel. She didn’t give up! She swears she didn’t! Chase says that’s true, she did not give up. But he had to do that! NO HE DIDN’T! Baron Corbin walks over and says seriously, this is over, there’s the exit. No it’s not, this is their allotted time. Then get through it already! Just say sorry for crushing Thea’s hopes and dreams and go.

Oh, sorry, did Corbin even see the match while being thrown around by an Olympic Gold Medalist? Corbin laughs and says if Gable shows his face again, Corbin will finish that fight. And since Chase won’t say it, Corbin will. Corbin leans in to tell Thea, “Excuse me, little girl. This job, it’s not for everybody. You tried, and you failed. And you peaked on Sunday. So you should pack your things and find something else to do.” Chase tells Corbin that’s enough. He’s a POS and Chase won’t let him talk to Thea like that! Well, tighten your dress pants and do something about it. Oh, Chase will. Chase won’t let people talk to Thea like that, but Thea doesn’t want to talk to Chase.

What can Chase do to make it up to her? Will humbling Corbin be a good start?

 

Eddy Thorpe VS DIJAK!

The Alpha Wolf has been racking up wins, including in an NXT Underground match, but none of that matters to #HardJustice! Will Dijak make Eddy prove to him that he’s legit? Or will Eddy’s momentum be put in lockdown?

NXT returns as Dijak makes his entrance. The bell rings and Eddy dodges a boot to fire off forearms! Eddy bobs ‘n’ weaves, UPPERCUTS and CHOPS! Eddy whips, Dijak reverses but Eddy comes back to SHOTGUN! Eddy CLUBS Dijak, fires off body shots, but Dijak shoves him away. Dijak kicks low, headlocks, but Eddy powers out.

Fans rally, Dijak fights up, and he fights the lift! Dijak pries the hold open, wrenches and WRINGS Eddy out! Eddy writhes, Dijak drags him up and POSTS him again!

Dijak flops out of the ring and fans boo. Eddy hurries over to drag Dijak up, but Dijak YANKS Eddy into the post! Then he SUPERKICKS Eddy back in! Dijak slides in, grits his teeth and CYCLONE BOOTS!! Cover, Dijak wins!

Winner: Dijak, by pinfall

The Alpha Wolf fought hard but he could only do so much with one arm. Will Dijak use this win to establish himself as the top dog in NXT?

 

Tony D’Angelo is on the phone.

He says they’ll never believe it! Gallus got them right outside the car! Stacks walks over and asks what he’s saying. Tony says if anyone understands this, it’s him. Business is business. Look, do this for him and they’re even stevens. Good? Good! Yeah, see you then. So he’s in? He’s on the way. The Underboss & The Don are ready, but just who is this ringer they’re calling it?

 

Dana Brooke & Kelani Jordan watch back film.

Kelani can’t believe how Dana just kept hitting Cora Jade again and again with that kendo stick. Cora didn’t stand a chance! “Good for you, girl! Cora should’ve never got on your bad side.” Dana says Cora brought out something in Dana. A dark side. It just kinda came out. But that’s the side that maybe we needed to see. Yeah! After all the different directions her career has gone, after seeing all those negative comments, as soon as Dana had that kendo stick in hand, she saw red. But y’know what? Dana kinda liked it. Kelani says Dana is kinda badass. Yeah? Yeah. Maybe that’s something Kelani should try to tap into.

How so? All the gymnastics training is great, but Kelani needs to call someone out! Find that killer instinct! Hmm… Kelani thinks about it. Will she and Dana sharpen their edge and climb the ranks of NXT?

 

Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz VS Elektra Lopez & Loa Vice!

Leon & Feroz helped Nathan Frazer & Dragon Lee defeat Meta Four in the Great American Bash Kickoff Show, but if you asked La Madrina and her MMA amiga, it was more the other way around. Will Lopez & Lola prove they have the fire and desire? Or will there be plenty of Latina Heat from Leon & Feroz?

The teams sort out, Leon starts against Lopez and the two tie up. They go around, Leon waistlocks, Lopez switches and SLAMS Leon down! Lopez wraps on a SLEEPER but Leon arm-drags free! Feroz tells Leon to get fired up, and Leon gets around to waistlock and SLAM Lopez! Then she gator rolls, bearhug rolls, and brings Lopez up to wrench.

Winners: Lola Vice & Elektra Lopez, by pinfall

It was a lot of chaos, but in the end, Lopez & Lola proved their point! Their fire was hotter, will they blaze a trail up to the top?

 

Tiffany Stratton posted a TikTok.

It was a #GRWM, a “Get Ready With Me.” She recorded herself doing her make-up as she reminded us all that she faced “a little girl full of energy, Thea Hail.” But she won’t lie, Thea pushed her. There were so many moments where Tiff wanted to give up. Her arm was hurting so bad, she literally could’ve passed out from the pain. But after weeks of torture, it is finally over. And she will be back next week to grace us with her presence. Maybe she’ll choose her next opponent, throw a #Tiffybration, or whatever else she wants. But whatever it’ll be, you can believe it’ll be fabulous. What will be next for Wrestling Barbie in NXT?

But Wes says it IS! Will Wes’s anger lead him to go after HIM next?

 

Bron Breakker speaks.

“Von Wagner. How you holding up after that Spear last week?” Bron’s had the chance to watch Von’s story unfold, and he has to say… It’s touching stuff. Really is. (That’s sarcasm) Bron will shot straight, though. Von’s a nobody, just like his father! Von’s soft, that’s it! Telling it like it is! If Von doesn’t like what Brno’s saying, then come find him! But if you do, that picture from when Von was a kid with the scar on his head, if you think that was bad. wait until Bron’s done with you. One badass second generation star calls out the other, who will come out of it as the baddest?

 

Rhea & Dom are taking their leave.

Dom is upset that Dragon and Rey are trying to steal his spotlight. But then Axiom walks over! And Axiom says Dom is a parasite! Leeching off his father’s blood, sweat and tears. But Axiom can’t wait for next week when Dragon takes him on. Wait, didn’t this guy already say how much he loves Rey? No, that was Dragon Lee! Oh, then who the hell is this? But Mustafa Ali gets in Dom’s face. He wants to talk. Axiom was just talking to him! Right, but hold on. Ali wants to talk about Sunday. Rhea says Ali lost. Ali isn’t the one who got pinned. Axiom asks what’s going on here, but then Rhea 7 Dom leave.

Ali is upset, Axiom says Ali was the one disrespecting him. Oh, right, sorry, Axiom got disrespected! Hey, everybody, Axiom got disrespected! Try being disrespected for EIGHT YEARS!! Go worry about the Heritage Cup or Scrypts. That NAC is Ali’s! Ali isn’t doing himself any favors, will he have to worry about the Undeniable Truth on top of Dirty Dom?

 

Andre Chase w/ Chase U VS Baron Corbin!

The Professor looks to defend his student’s honor, but he’s going up against the new “No BS, burn the ships” Baron Corbin. Will this be a #TeachableMoment for Corbin about respect? Or for Chase that not everyone can succeed?

NXT returns as Chase U makes their entrance. Thea is not her usual hyper self, but Duke encourages her to still be here for Mr. Chase. The bell rings and Chase circles with Corbin.

Fans are torn as Chase hobbles up. Time to spell it out! C! H! A! S! E! What’s that spell!? CHASE U~! Fans fire up as Chase goes up the corner. Corbin runs in, Chase leaps over! Chase comes back, into a SPINEBUSTER! Corbin gets a leg, and he has a HALF CRAB! A direct reference to Great American Bash! And THEA THROWS THE TOWEL!! But Corbin catches it!? And throws it back?! Thea says fine and just leaves! But then Chase cradles Corbin! TWO!! Chase CHOPS, but Corbin CLUBS Chase! END OF DAYS!! Cover, Corbin wins!

Duke is disappointed, but what is it Chase U can do to get back on track after Sunday? As for Corbin, will he take what he feels he’s owed?

 

Roxanne Perez shares her homecoming with NXT.

Coming home to Texas, she felt so good to be back. She missed Texas so much. Coming into the WWE, she had to find herself. And now, she knows who Roxie Perez is, and what she won’t take. Roxie reunites with her family, they are so proud of her and her hard work. Mom says it’s all Roxie, and Raquel was worried she might have to close her eyes with the Weapons Wild Match.

And of course, Roxie went to WonderCon, only for Blair to try and ruin the fun. They had their pull-apart scrap, and Roxie vowed to make Blair regret everything she’s ever done to her. Booker T taught Roxie that she can’t focus on the past, she has to push forward and focus on what’s next. This match was for every victim of Blair’s “reign of terror.” And we know how that match went down! Roxie give as good as she got, and she came out on top! Sorry not sorry for what she had to do. And honestly, no more apologies to anyone that forgot this is Roxie Perez. “And you can’t break me.” Will Roxie be unstoppable on her road back to the top?

 

Tony’s mystery man appears!

Great muscle car, great shoes, but we don’t get to see his face! Who is this walking in to back up The Don?

 

The Meta Four celebrates backstage.

Dar says they are untouchable! Lash wants them to hold up, wait a minute! Does he realize what happened? “Y’all  just beat the NXT Champion, and the most successful North American Champion of all time!” More applause! It feels good to be great. But Tyler Bate walks in! Don’t tell Bate that Dar only just got that cup back. C’mon, man, have you been living under a rock? Well, if you think about it, many people live their lives under metaphorical rocks. Meta Four? But Bate says he was on a meditation retreat to destress and reconnect with himself and his roots. Ever been to Tibet?

Jakara doesn’t care about anything that Bate just said. But clearly, Dar never actually lost the cup. Um, so then he is the champ? Yes! And he’s beaten everyone else? Yes! There’s that meditation kicking in. Well then, as Bate sees it, Dar could do with a fresh challenger. Um… Bate says challenge accepted! Next week, Dar VS Bate, for the Cup! Bye-bye! What? NO! That’s not…! Did Dar and Meta Four put all of their feet in their mouths? Will the Big Strong Boi’s return to NXT bring him a return to former glory?

 

The Schism and their followers are in the ring.

Ava Raine, Joe Gacy & The Dyad stand with their masked-and-hooded henchmen, and Gacy says they gather tonight under The Schism’s tree from “unfortunate circumstances.” Conflict with new members is not uncommon, but in their experience, can be resolved and explored with an open heart. However… Insubordination and disobedience are toxic to their roots, and must be eradicated! There are two among them who have abandoned their values and pose a direct threat to the sanctity and future of The Schism! TIME’S UP! Jagger & Rip can’t wait! These boys are gonna get theirs. No more Diamond Mine, lads!

Gacy has the Dyad back down. They will do their due diligence. Ava says that week after week, the NXT Universe have been “adorned with these golden masks” (that are bright yellow). And it is a butterfly effect that will have impact for years to come. But two put their hands on the Dyad and that is unacceptable. They will be found out and punished. Step forward one by one and remove the masks! First up, not a Creed. Second, not a Creed. Third, is IKEMEN JIRO~! But he’s not Schism or a Creed! Jiro has a good time on his way out and The Dyad is furious! This is serious business! The fourth is not the Creeds, either, go away! Quincy shrugs and walks away.

That leaves the last two! And the Dyad is convinced! How can these two be here so calmly? The Creeds won’t get one over on them! The Dyad pounces, but reveals NOT Creeds!? The Creeds are on the tron! They’re up here, dummies! The Creeds are at a beach somewhere! To think the Dyad would think those two were the Creeds! You really thought they were in masks? But the surround sound at the hotel did make it feel like the Creeds were right there for that match. But Gacy, the UFOs might’ve fried your brain~! The paranoia is off. They lost the Losers Leave NXT and aren’t in NXT. But they are having the time of their lives!

In fact, they were at the pyramids last week! Wait, the background changes! That’s a green screen! And then Easter Island! Those heads look like Schism masks. Not that they would know, wink wink. But they go back to the beach in Fiji-Hawaii. Well, uh, they went to both. But don’t worry, they are NOT in Orlando. Not even close. They’re just calling in, checking in, and enjoying vacation. They drink it up and head out. The Dyad are furious but Ava & Gacy stop them! “Not like this!” Gacy tells the Creeds that he knows they ARE here! So followers of The Schism worldwide, FIND the Creeds and bring them here!

The cracks are forming in the foundation of this already unstable stable, will Julius & Brutus have their revenge one way or another?

 

Cora Jade barges into the women’s locker room.

The Punk Rock Mean Girl says, “Move move move! I can’t even believe this! I just loss to Dana Brooke of all people! Y’know, the one who comes to Raw and tries to steal my spotlight? That one! Y’know what? Forget it. I’m done. I’m leaving. I’m sick of this place. Why am I even here?” Cora is packing her things, but then looks at her stack of supposed fan mail. She says the fans are all up in her business, so they can know that she’s LEAVING. She tosses the mail, and then tells everyone good luck without her. They’re gonna need it. No one seems to care… Will the Generation of Jade be the one out of luck without NXT?

 

Six Man Tag: Gallus VS Tony D’Angelo, Channing Lorenzo & ???

Joseph, Markus & Wolfie jumped The Don & Underboss the moment they pulled into the parking lot, being the sorest of sore losers from The Great American Bash. But now, Tony vows they’re gonna pay! So who is the third man, brother? It’s… SANTOS ESCOBAR!! Fans fire up as the Emperor of Lucha and the #1 contender to the WWE United States Championship is back in NXT!

Stacks throws hands, whips, but Wolfgang reverses, only for Stacks to UPPERCUT! Tag to Tony, the Family mugs Wolfgang, Tony hits a big knee lift and some haymakers! Tony wrenches Wolfgang, tags Stacks, and then bumps Wolfgang off Stacks’ knees! Stacks brings Wolfgang around to ROCK with a haymaker!

Wolfgang shoves Stacks but Stacks drop toeholds! Stacks HAMMERS away, throws knees, then fires fists! Tag to Tony, Tony HIP TOSS SENTONS Stacks into Wolfgang!

NXT goes picture in picture and the ref gets Stacks and Escobar to stand down. Gallus fires up, Joe runs in, but into haymakers! Tony DECKS Joe, brings him up, and whips him into the corner!

Winners: Tony D’Angelo, Channing Lorenzo & Santos Escobar, by pinfall

Rivals became allies and they took down the Gallus Boys! Escobar even joins in on the “EY~!” Will the Family do big things in NXT now? Will Escobar have gold of his own in a few weeks after facing Austin Theory?

 

Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“Trick Williams. You are the sole reason I am NOT NXT Champion. And you’re saying you’re not done with me? Good. Because I’ not finished with you, either. Trick, look into my eyes. Now you will feel my wrath and my fury. Next week, my retribution begins, and I won’t stop until you are entirely… terminated.” The Mad Dragon is seeing red, will Trick wish he’d stayed home on Sunday?


My Thoughts:

A great NXT to follow Great American Bash, and with some great development into this next phase already. Lyra VS Jacy as the opening match was good stuff, Lyra winning I assume finishes off that story, though maybe not as powerfully as I expected. And along with Tiff’s little make-up video promo, we’re definitely getting a fresh title feud on the road to No Mercy at the end of September. Lyra has felt ready to challenge a champion, her and Tiff faced off before, this could be a great rematch. And plus, we still need Gigi VS Kiana to wrap up before either (Gigi, I assume) gets their own shot at the title.

Really good little video from Roxie to suggest we’ll truly see a more aggressive Roxie from now on. Good promo from Bron to call out Von, they’ll have a really good match. Nice promo from Dana and Kelani to respond to Dana’s win in the Kendo Stick Match. But for talking about her career going here and there, it seems rather random for Dana to suddenly say she and Kelani need to sharpen their own edge in NXT. I feel like this could be a make or break point for this duo, which also seems sudden as they really only just teamed up. But Cora had a rather fitting promo where she basically ranted and decided to rage quite NXT. It definitely won’t last, Cora’s not ready for RawDown just yet. But nice cameo from Stevie Turner and Cavinder Twins during that promo.

Good match from Eddy and Dijak, and Dijak winning was only a little surprising. Dijak’s needed something to get going, and he and Eddy might build this into a feud. Really good tag match from Leon & Feroz VS Lopez & Lola, they’re definitely being rivals and not allies. And good promo from Chase U and Corbin that then led to Andre Chase VS Corbin. I like how the fans wanted Thea to throw in the towel, that was definitely the way Thea could get back at Chase. Corbin snatching the towel to stop the forfeit was whatever, he was going to win either way. Not sure where things go from here, but I hope no Thea Heel turn. Maybe a Thea gimmick change where she goes into like her own punk/emo rock character?

Great promo from Dom & Rhea with Dragon Lee, and I love that not only are we getting a North American Championship match, Rey is gonna show up and we can get some great stuff out of those classic interactions. Personally hoping Dragon wins the title so someone else can be defending it come No Mercy. Also, as soon as Dom said what he said to Axiom, I knew he was jokingly mixing Axiom up with Dragon. Ali joining in on that promo was good, and we’re definitely getting Ali VS Axiom to more or less determine who is next after Dom VS Dragon. And as Ali mentioned, Axiom still has stuff with Scrypts, I expect Scrypts to ruin things for Axiom, Ali will face Dragon/Dom.

Great stuff from the larger Trick Melo Gang story that branched off to other stuff tonight. For one, Trick Melo Gang having a mature conversation about both parts of a duo wanting to be something and no animosity is great stuff, you don’t get that enough in pro-wrestling. And then great interaction between Melo, Wes and Meta Four to give us a great match. Of course Lash & Jakara get involved to help Dar & Oro win, but I like Tyler Bate suddenly returning and challenging Dar for Dar’s Heritage Cup. There’s a chance Meta Four helps Dar retain against Tyler, too, but that’ll just help set up things for Dar VS Frazer, Undisputed Heritage Cup Championship match.

A major detail in this is Wes Lee starting to seem more Heel like. He was more aggressive in the match, he was wearing new gear that was mostly black, and he’s aiming a lot of his anger at Melo. Heel Wes VS Face Melo to truly flip things from their North American Championship feud is good stuff. And also, great menacing promo from Dragunov to call out Trick, that is going to be awesome stuff. Depending on what happens there, Dragunov could go for his rematch like Melo is anticipating, and Trick could somehow come out of this ready for either the North American or Heritage Cup title. I would love to see a Heritage Cup Contender Tournament that Trick gets in on, and Trick could use his boxing background to win at least one match by knockout.

The Schism interrogation promo was pretty good, and went a direction I didn’t anticipate. Lining up the masked followers and revealing them, I figured there had to be a swerve about the guys with the Creed Brothers’ body types not being the Creeds. But I love that Ikemen Jiro finally made a TV return, and then Quincy Elliot was basically denied his officially speaking. The green screen vacation gag from the Creeds was pretty clever, these guys have been getting to have more fun showing off some character. And I’m thinking Ivy has to be in on this, who else would be running the green screen for them?

And great bookending of the night with Gallus and D’Angelo Family, though this might’ve been to help delay moving to another tag team just yet. Escobar being the third man was a great surprise, and great use of continuity. Great win for Escobar, Tony & Stacks, Tony & Stacks will definitely get to call the shots for their tag title story now. Though as I just said, can’t be sure who is next, but I’m sure we’ll see good build over the next eight weeks.

My Score: 8.8/10

Andrew’s TNA iMPACT! Results & Match Ratings: 6.13.2024

The ultimate Go Home! We are one day away from Against All Odds and The System goes to the Hardy Compound for a face off!

Published

on

Against All Odds is tomorrow night, so we see how this Go Home show is structured to get there. We also get a Hardy Compound segment in TNA for the first time in what…6 years? I’m not fact checking time frames, just been a long damn time.

A few matches to set the table for the TNA+ Event and looks like about 3 Knockouts matches. So fans of women’s wrestling should enjoy this episode.

Ratings:

  • Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana: Santana wins via Spin the Block – ***
  • Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay: Marti wins via Roll-Up – **
  • Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson: Dani wins via Luna Landing – ** 1/2
  • ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone: ASH wins via Rarefied Air – **
  • The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth): Nemeths win via Maverick – *** 1/4

 

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.

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 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!

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?

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!

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
