The NXT Tag Team Champions, accompanied by Thea Hail & Jacy Jayne, are bombarded with questions about the allegations.

They head out and Duke wants everyone to make sure “NXT Tag Team Champions” is included in that. But this match kicks us off, will Chase & Duke be able to focus with this all in the background?

The Don exposing the scandal turns out well for him and Stacks! They have the titles back, but what about Chase U? Will they ever recover from this?


Lita speaks.

“Hey, NXT Universe. WWE Hall of Famer, Lita, here, and I know that you’ve all been waiting on my picks for this week’s Iron Survivor qualifying matches heading into NXT Deadline. Shawn Michaels has given me the power to do a little matchmaking. In the ring.” But first, the women’s division! So many incredible choices, and since the beginning, the NXT Women’s Division has been making waves and elevating what it means to be a woman in this business. Every week, the women show out, so for Lita, top of that list is Roxanne Perez. But can the Prodigy win the Iron Survivor all over again? She’ll have to make it past a woman who has everything it has to make that next big step. Meta Four’s Lash Legend! Lita loves the contrast of styles and strategies.

As for the men, well c’mon! How do you not pick Trick Williams? He has been on fire, and he already knows he has a bull’s eye on his back. Did Melo attack? Was it Lexis King? Who knows. But what Lita knows is that he is her number one pick, going up against a man who is tough as nails: Joe Coffey! If the Iron King can make this a slug fest, then Trick is in trouble. But Lita cannot wait to see how extreme these matches get tonight, and good luck to them all.


The Meta Four arrives.

Speaking of Lash, she is with Jakara Jackson, Oro Mensah and of course the NXT Heritage Cup Champion, Noam Dar. They’re all headed to gorilla, because tonight is an all new edition of the Supernova Sessions.


Baron Corbin finds Dominik Mysterio backstage.

Corbin says Dom is doing it again. He watched Raw, Judgment Day got it done last night, too, they’re keeping all the gold. Dom says yeah, that’s how they do. But Corbin might get gold of his own. Yeah, Corbin is gonna put it on Ilja at Deadline, but tonight, he’s got Wes Lee. Dom says Wes just won’t go away. Oh, he goes away, cuz he’s a quitter. But the problem is that Wes keeps coming back. Wes has been using a clipboard and crayon to write a little list like he was writing to Santa Claus or something. But Corbin’s gonna add something to that list: A trip to the hospital. Dom likes that, and he’ll be watching. Let him know if he can be of help.

Corbin says he’s good. Not sure if Dom’s noticed, but Corbin’s been tearing it up. Dom says yeah, he has. Corbin appreciates the offer, though. They fist bump, Dom heads out, and we’ll just have to see if Mr. No More BS is going to keep his word.


It’s an all-new Supernova Sessions.

Noam Dar is in the ring with Meta Four and says “Hello, hello, hello! Hear me now! Welcome to another edition of Supernova Sessions, live in the USAAAAA~!” And tonight is special. Oro says tell ’em! Dar says tonight, we witness the #BougieBully, Lash Legend, vie for the Iron Survivor at NXT Deadline. Lash says you already know, it is time for her to #LashOut, okay? And tonight’s guests are worthy of this spotlight, but Dar is taking extreme security measures to make sure no CRIMINALS touch his Heritage Cup. Without further ado, please welcome The Alpha Academy. Fans cheer as Chad Gable leads the way for Otis, Maxxine Dupri & Akira Tozawa, “A THANK YEW~!”

Dar points to the folding chairs and bottled water. That’s for the guests, the hosts get the comfy couch and sparkling cider. Dar welcomes the Academy, and says the Academy has already done so much together. They’re beloved by the WWE Universe, that must be nice. But is this the most amazing thing they’ve ever done? Being this close to the Modern Day Mona Lisa, Dar’s Heritage Cup? Gable says first, A THANK YEW~ for having them here on Supernova Sesh. And that is a beautiful cup. But Dar is also pretty lucky to still have it. Jakara says luck ain’t got a damn thing to do with it, Dar is simply the greatest Heritage Cup Campeon there is.

Dar says Miss Jackson only deals in facts. And the fact is, Tozawa had the place rocking. He came so close. But when it comes to championship rounds, there are levels to this game, and this is Dar’s game. Tozawa says no no no. You take away Meta Four, and Dar’s cup would be Tozawa’s! The fans cheer and Otis says, “You tell ’em, Tozawa-san!” Lash skirts the breaks, and says tell them nothing! The Meta Four did nothing wrong. Dar is keeping his Heritage Cup on lock, the same as she’s qualifying for that Iron Survivor Challenge. Otis says that what Miss Lash says is good in his book, okay? Ew, nuh-uh!

Otis says Lash can say anything she wants to him, baybay~! The hips are going! Dar has everyone stop! EW! EW! EW! Otis, bad. Fans cheer Otis on, though, but Dar wants to stick to topics. This is gross. The Heritage Cup is his cup! Tozawa wants Dar to admit the truth but Oro tells the “foolish boy” to watch himself. Just stick to your stupid dance! Maxxine says do NOT speak to Tozawa that way. Jakara says Oro can speak however he wants! That’s why he’s Main Man Mensah! Oro does his version of the Tozawa shuffle, but Gable says, “SHOOOOOSH~! Shoosh please.”

Now, Dar has a point. He’s synonymous with the Heritage Cup. Isn’t he a three-time champion? Dar says yes, absolutely. And Gable needs to understand that there is no one who can beat Dar! NXT had to do a Global Invitational just to find him a contender! There’s no one who understands how tough it is at the top. Gable admits, that does sound tough. Yes, if only they could walk a mile in these $1000 shoes of his. Gable wants to make Dar’s life easy. Don’t look anywhere, don’t go anywhere. The next challenger is right here. Right? Otis?!

Dar laughs, and wants us to hold on. If this person doesn’t want to do the match tonight given what Shinsuke did to him, Dar would understand. In fact, Dar is so giving, he’ll make it for next week. But please, tell us more about the challenger. Maxxine will. He’s got a big gas tank that can go go go, and a huge appetite for destruction. And the hips don’t lie, they lift 1000 pounds! Dar still mocks Otis, but then the list continues. Dar’s challenger is a former Olympian, a former NXT Tag Team Champion, a former Raw Tag Team Champion! Oh, and a former SmackDown Tag Team Champion! Dar freaks out now! This is HIS show, play that funky music! Security!!

Otis says no takebacks, Dar! The next challenger to the Heritage Cup is… CHAD GABLE!! They suckered him! Dar rushes up, but into a HEADBUTT! Dar is dazed, and now the Academy does the Tozawa shuffle! That’s naaaaaasty~! But will Gable make things bitter for Meta Four next week? And what about Lash having to focus on her qualifier? That match is up next!


Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge Qualifier: Roxanne Perez VS Lash Legend!

The Prodigy is the inaugural Iron Survivor for the Women’s Division, but she’s up against a literally tall order just to get back in it. Will Roxie do Lita proud? Or can the #BougieBully bully her way into a big opportunity?

The bell rings, the two tie up, and Lash SLAMS Roxie! Lash pie faces Roxie around, scoops her but Roxie slips out to headlock. Lash powers up to put Roxie in a corner but Roxie kicks off the corner. Lash back suplexes, Roxie lands on her feet and then dodges the boot! Roxie returns to tilt-o-whirl but Lash stops the DDT! So Roxie swings the other way to ghost pin! TWO!! Roxie ROCKS Lash, CHOPS Lash, but Lash clamps on with both hands! Lash TOSSES Roxie to a corner, but Roxie BOOTS back! Roxie goes up to leap, FLYIGN SUNSET FLIP! Lash flails, goes Matrix, and smiles as she stands up. Lash YANKS Roxie up, but Roxie arm-drags!

Roxie BOOTS Lash out of the ring, but Dar distracts her. Roxie runs, Jakara trips her, but the ref saw it! Lash CLOBBERS Roxie, but then the ref EJECTS Meta Four! Fans fire up as Meta Four gets what they deserve! Lash freaks out, Roxie rolls her up, ONE!! Lash runs up to BOOT Roxie down! Fans taunt Dar with “HEY HEY HEY! GOODBYE~!” Lash dribbles Roxie off the mat, scoops her, then SLAMS her! And then scoops to SLAM her again! Lash looms over Roxie, then drops an ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Roxie hangs tough, but Lash pushes her around. Roxie throws hands in return! Fans rally and Roxie dropkicks a leg out!

Roxie fires forearm son Lash, then runs, but into a scoop! Torture rack! Lash thrashes Roxie, but Roxie pops around to a GUILLOTINE! Lash fights out, but Roxie throws hands! Lash RAMS Roxie into buckles! Lash gets space, runs back in, but Roxie moves! Lash POSTS herself and falls to the floor! Roxie builds speed and she DIVES! Direct hit and down goes Lash! Fans fire up, Roxie puts Lash in fast, and then Roxie goes up top! CROSSBODY! Roxie keeps moving, she wheelbarrows and VICTORY FACEBUSTERS! Cover, TWO!? Lash survives but Roxie just snarls. Roxie drags Lash up, throws hands, but Lash rises.

Lash scoops Roxie again, swings her, BACKBREAKER! Roxie writhes, Lash gets space again. Lash runs, cartwheels, but Roxie avoids the moonsault! Roxie gets in a corner, but Jakara returns! The ref argues with her, but Kiana James anchors Roxie in the corner! Lash BOOTS Roxie down!! Fans boo as Kiana runs away. Lash then choke grips Roxie, to CHOKE BOMB!! Cover, Lash wins!

Winner: Lash Legend, by pinfall (advances to NXT Deadline)

The Calculator’s grudge against Roxie helps Lash make it through! Will the Meta Four make the most of this by making sure Lash is the Iron Survivor?


The various tag teams of NXT are watching.

Tank Ledger says he wants to do what Tony D & Stacks just did. Become two time tag champs? Hank ‘n’ Tank still need the first. No, Tank means take it to the next level. Those two are at the top of their game, Tank wants to get there. Axiom says that there may be new tag champions tonight, but next week, we might see a new Heritage Cup Champion. Brooks Jensen says that’s a good point. And the Country Boys need to keep their eyes on the belts. Hey, Briggs, what’s going on? He’s on his phone with something. Edris Enofe says new tag champs or not, there can be new #1 contenders, and that should be him and Malik!

But in walk Angel Garza & Humberto Carrillo, laughing at them all. The world doesn’t wanna see anything from you guys. They couldn’t even catch a break if they bought one. Oh, really? Edris has some money. But then in walk the champs, bragging about becoming two time champs. But uh, they still got some business to handle. For now, they have the titles. Garza says to enjoy this now, it won’t last long. Tony says hold on. The last time we saw the former Lotharios, they were losing to the Creeds, getting put through tables. NEXT. Frazer says Tony’s got ’em there. Cousin Angie says the demands can wait. Next week, we celebrate!

Tony, Stacks & Angie head out, the contenders go back to arguing, and they start shoving! The others keep this from escalating, will Edris & Malik catch that break at the expense of Garza & Carrillo?


Lyra Valkyria watches tape of Xia Li.

She has some of the coaches with her to point out the lethal quality of those strikes. That’s a lot of power in those kicks, and they can hit from just about anywhere. If Lyra is gonna walk out of here with both the title and her head on her shoulders, she’s gotta watch out. Wait, they got an email from her? It’s a digital invitation to a… warrior tea ceremony for tonight? Well, Lyra’s gonna go, but they’ll finish watching film. Will the Morrigan be ready for whatever the Exterminator is planning?


Lyra arrives at the tea ceremony.

Xia welcomes her, and says before she sits, please put this on. Lyra sets the belt down to take the coat and put it on. Xia says this is tradition. Well thank you. She’s never been to anything like this before. The Warrior Tea Ceremony is very important. It is how Xia’s ancestors honored their opponents before the combat. Xia bows, and Lyra copies. A deep bow shows a deep respect. Well, respect isn’t something Lyra expected from Xia. Xia offers her a seat, and Lyra sits. Xia sits across from her, and says her warrior spirit has come alive these last few months. Xia wants to be noticed. She accomplished that.

But Xia wants to be sure they’re on an even battlefield when they fight for the title. Lyra can do that if Xia can. Xia says that just as she chose Lyra, they must choose the right tea leaves for their drink. Xia picked the leaves, and sets them in the pot. Then you pour the water in to transform the leaves. This represents what is happening to them during the match. Tea must brew at the correct temperature for the correct amount of time. If not, then it will be ruined. So the leaves are more delicate than they look. Xia says overtime, the leaves cannot stand the heat. They break down and crumble. And that happens next Tuesday, when Xia is the one who consumes Lyra.

The tea is poured into cups, and Xia says Lyra may consume the tea. Xia sips, but Lyra respectfully declines. If she does not, then Xia will show no remorse in their battle. Lyra says so be it. Next week, may the strongest warrior win. They both stand, and bow again. Lyra takes her title and leaves, but will she withstand the heat that is coming for her?


Backstage interview with Trick Williams & Carmelo Hayes.

McKenzie Mitchell is with Trick Melo Gang, and wants to address the elephant in the room. Melo got hit by Trick, but Trick says hold on. Don’t instigate. They talked it out. Melo knows that wasn’t on purpose. But if tables were turned, it would’ve been Trick who got hit instead. So understand, accidents happen. Right, dawg? Melo says yeah. But last week, they were here on this exact spot and Melo told McKenzie and the world that he did not attack Trick. The lie detector determined he was telling the truth. What lie detector? Melo says that to answer things, yeah, it got heated. But the beef is squashed. Accidents happen.

And another thing! Trick doesn’t know what Lexis King is playing, but he got the right ones today. King will get his, but tonight, Trick gets his spot in the Iron Survivor Challenge. Gallus will be ringside, so Melo will have Trick’s back. Feels good to be back on the same team. They shake hands, and Trick heads out. Melo follows behind, will Trick whoop the Iron King?


Kiana walks into the NXT Women’s Division locker room.

And she brags that that is how you get things done! Roxie won’t win the Iron Survivor because now she isn’t in it. Right, Kiana couldn’t beat her last year, can’t beat her this year. Good job. Y’know what, Gigi! Uh, Roxie did deserve it. Yeah, didn’t you see Kiana’s forehead after that Halloween Havoc match? Karmen Petrovic steps up but Arianna Grace freaks out. Karmen has no right to speak! She still hasn’t apologized for last week! But when you follow your heart, you can never go wrong. How delusional is Arianna? Gigi, apologies, but do you need help understanding what she said? She has tons of experience helping the less fortunate and less educated.

Then let’s hope Arianna has experience in getting her ass kicked because that is what is happening tonight. Gigi heads out, and Arianna asks why things always have to end in a fight. Will things get ugly for the Beauty Queen tonight?


Backstage interview with Bron Breakker.

McKenzie asks him about last week, getting the win over Von Wagner, but not standing tall. Does he have any remorse for what he’s been putting Von and Robert Stone through? No, absolutely not. What Bron did is what he does best, and that is hurt people. He’s the Badass of NXT, and the result is always the same! He breaks everyone. So what’s that mean for his future? Dijak walks in and says that is a great question: What is next for Bron? Dijak would say uncertain, but for him it is clear. While Bron was picking splinters out of his ass, Dijak qualified for the Iron Survivor Challenge.

Bron chuckles and says Dijak has the nerve to talk to him like that when their paths haven’t even crossed. Oh, but they might. See, Jerry Lawler or JBL might give Bron a qualifier, so- Bron stops him there. They don’t want Bron in that match, he promises. Dijak says he’s the one guy who does, because he’s the one guy Bron can’t break. If Bron does qualify, just stay out of his way. If not, Bron will make Dijak beg for retribution. Bron heads out, will #MeanerThanEvil actually be able to defy #HardJustice?


Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge Qualifier: Trick Williams w/ Carmelo Hayes VS Joe Coffey w/ Gallus!

NXT returns and Trick Melo Gang make their entrance. Fans chant “WHOOP DAT TRICK!” and Trick says he needs this win. Will he get this win when The Iron King is just as desperate to get to the NXT Championship?

The bell rings and the two circle. They tie up, are in a deadlock, but then break. They tie up again with knuckle locks, and are still pretty even. Joe steps over to bend Trick back, but Trick bridges to stay up! Trick fights up and he bends Joe back! Joe knees low, scoops and SLAMS, then he drags Trick up. Joe armlocks and he grinds Trick down. Trick rolls, wrenches but Joe gets free. They go again, Joe has an arm but Trick wrenches to headlock. Joe powers out, Trick goes up and over and then scoops Joe to SLAM! Joe gets up bug into another scoop and SLAM! Trick DROPKICKS Joe down and fans fire up!

Trick stands Joe up, wrenches and whips, but Joe stops himself to UPPERCUT! Joe runs in and runs Trick over! Things keep moving, Joe avoids the hurdle but Trick catches the uppercut! Joe fights the backslide to try it himself. Trick fights that, fans rally, but Joe spins Trick. Trick dodges to pop-up HAYMAKER! Joe falls out of the ring and the fans fire up with Trick! Melo nods, Trick goes out but Gallus stands in the way. So Trick fires off on Mark Coffey & Wolfgang! Joe DECKS Trick and talks trash! Melo tells Gallus to back off, but Joe puts Trick in the ring. Joe runs up but Trick hits back! They brawl and fans rally up.

Trick and Joe trade elbows but Joe has the edge. Joe snapmares, covers, TWO! Joe clamps onto Trick’s ear, then the arm. Trick endures so Joe knees him in the back and pulls on both ears. The ref reprimands but Joe ELBOWS Trick in the head! Joe clamps back onto the arm but Trick fights up. Fans rally, Trick throws hands, and then runs. Joe dodges and runs back in to clothesline Trick up and out! Wolfie talks some trash as NXT goes to break.

NXT returns and the hands fly! Joe bobs ‘n’ weaves, ROCKS and whips, then he whips again to send Trick back into the corner. Then a scoop and BACKBREAKER! Joe pushes Trick down, to then handstand and SENTON! Cover, TWO! Joe drags Trick up but the fans rally. Joe KNEES Trick, fishhooks and stretches him, but Trick endures. Fans rally as Joe puts Trick in a half straitjacket. Trick fights up but Joe RAMS him! And RAMS him! And runs Trick over! Joe drags Trick up again, but Trick reels Joe in for a back drop! Fans fire up as Trick stands, storms up but Joe HOTSHOTS him! Joe runs up again but Trick dodges to JUMPING NECKBREAKER!

Fans fire up while both men are down, and Melo coaches Trick. Trick and Joe stand, and Trick fires hands! Joe hits back, they go back and forth! Fans are on Trick’s side but Joe fires off body shots! Joe scoops and SLAMS, then he covers, TWO! Joe is annoyed but he clamps onto Trick’s arm again. Trick endures and the fans rally back up. Trick stands, whips Joe but Joe reverses. Trick ducks ‘n’ dodges to FLYING LARIAT! Both men are down, the fans rally up again, and Trick throws hands! Trick DECKS Joe, then fires off on the ropes, BIG uppercut! Trick whips, Joe reverses but Trick FLYING LARIATS again!

Trick keeps moving, LEG LARIAT! And then a FLAPJACK! Trick roars and the fans are with him! Trick lets the hair down, and he has the arm, cartwheel ripcord, but Joe fights the lift! Joe HEADBUTTS, Trick wobbles, and Joe swings, into the BOOKEND! Cover, TWO!! Booker T can’t believe it! Mark Coffey gets up, Trick DECKS him! Wolfie tries, Melo has his foot! Trick runs up, now Melo gets Wolfgang down, and that causes Trick to tumble up and out! Accidents happen, but what was this? Melo helps Trick get up, but Joe DIVES! Melo gets away so Trick takes the tope! Was that an accident?

Fans boo as Joe aims, GLASGOW SENDOFF!! And then a GERMAN SUPLEX! Cover, TWO!! Trick survives and fans fire up! Joe runs, ALL THE BEST- TRICK KNEE!! Trick covers, Trick wins!!

Winner: Trick Williams, by pinfall (advances to NXT Deadline)

Melo smiles, it all worked out in the end. At least, it did, didn’t it? Trick goes on to the Iron Survivor Challenge, will Melo join him? Or will it be up to Trick to whoop everybody?


Wes Lee looks around backstage.

He feels tonight might finally be easy, but then Ilja Dragunov appears from outta nowhere. Wes tells him not to just be jumping out like that. Dragunov apologizes, but Wes says hold on. Glad he caught Dragunov. Wes congratulates Dragunov on finally being NXT Champion. Dragunov thanks him for that, and finally welcomes him back. We all know their last match was the “catalyst” for Wes taking time off, and Wes admits that’s right. But water under the bridge, and Wes kinda needed that time off. Wes is back, he has plenty on the agenda, and it all starts with Baron Corbin.

Dragunov appreciates that Wes enjoys Dragunov’s art of combat, so Dragunov will return the favor. Dragunov will watch that match, but asks that Wes please leave him a piece of Corbin leftover. Oh, Wes will think about it. But watch out for all these other guys doing the same as Corbin, doing anything and everything they can just to get their hands on Dragunov and the title. Oh, Dragunov is aware. But does that warning include Wes? Nah, he has other plans. They fist bump and Wes heads out. Then if the Cardiac Kid isn’t after the NXT Champion, who is he after?


Lexis King finds Baron Corbin backstage.

And Corbin says, “Look who it is, the talk of NXT.” King says “Guilty as charged.” Corbin gives King credit, that is how you make a name for yourself. Taking out Trick? That was a big move. King always knew he’d be a major player in the game, and now the rest of the world agrees. Corbin says he can’t disagree. And how King did it without getting caught, that is also impressive. How’d he do it? King chuckles. How’d he do it? That’s the million dollar question. But all he has to say is, mission accomplished. Yes, it is. And King sees Corbin is in the main event. Good luck and enjoy the spotlight. King will be watching. So wait, is King the one? Or is he just taking credit for it?


The Brawling Brutes VS Out The Mud w/ SCRYPTS!

Ridge Holland & Pete Dunne gave Lucien Price & Bronco Nima a warning last week that just because the streets don’t look the same doesn’t mean they’re any different. Four scrappers who have had to fight to survive now fight to move up the ranks! Will the Northern Grit & Bruiserweight rise up? Or will it be Scrypts’ crew that gets #OutTheMud?

NXT returns and OTM make their entrance. The teams sort out and Dunne starts against Price. Dunne CHOPS and CHOPS and CHOPS! Price shoves back, ELBOWS Dunne down, and storms up on him. Dunne CHOPS again! Dunne wrenches, bends fingers, and he wrangles Price to an armlock. Dunne isolates the arm to STOMP it! Price writhes and flounders away but Dunne basement dropkicks him down! Nima helps Price up but Ridge gets in. The Brutes dare OTM to do something, OTM takes a swing, but they both miss! The Brutes hook OTM up on the ropes, for DOUBLE BEATS OF THE BODHRAIN!

The fans count along, but OTM block at nine! They DUMP Ridge and HOTSHOT Dunne! Nima then APRON CHOKE SLAMS Ridge! Nima talks trash, and Price STOMPS Dunne down! Fans boo but OTM talk trash and soak up the heat. Price rains down forearms on Dunne, drags him up and put him in the corner. Tag to Nima, and Nima runs up to STOMP Dunne down! Scrypts says this is too easy! Nima talks trash on Ridge, then sucker punches him! Nima goes to Dunne, HEADBUTTS him, and Dunne ends up on ropes. Nima CHOKES Dunne by standing on him, then lets off as the ref counts. Nima argues with the ref, and Scrypts DRIVE-BY DROPKICKS!

Fans boo but Scrypts says he’s too smart. Nima covers Dunne, TWO! Nima drags Dunne up, ROCKS him with a forearm, and then storms up on Dunne. Tag to Price.

Ridge SPLASHES Price in a corner, whips him corner to corner, then SPLASHES again! And then again! Ridge roars, “C’mon, Sunshine!” Scoop and swing, SIDE SLAM! Cover, TWO! Price survives, but Ridge pumps up. The fans rally and Ridge takes off the elbow pad! Ridge runs up, but into a SUPERKICK! Dunne tags in as Ridge rebounds, but Price SLAMS Ridge! Dunne ENZIGURIS Price! But Price back suplexes Dunne onto Ridge! Tag to Nima, he and Price get Dunne up, GOURD BUSTER KNEE COMBO! Cover, TWO!! Dunne survives and Nima is furious. Nima drags Dunne up, choke grips and CHOKE- ENZIGURI!

Fans fire up as Dunne GAMANGIRIS Price! Dunne BOOTS Nima down! Fans fire up again as Dunne goes up the corner! But Nima is right up after him! Nima fires hands, but Dunne bends those fingers! SNAP!! Nima is stuck up top now as Dunne sunset flips! Nima holds on, so Ridge tags in. Dunne hurries as Ridge CLUBS away on Nima. Dunne MOONSAULTS to take out Price and Scrypts! Ridge POWERBOMBS Nima, then tags Dunne back in! They get Nima up, LONDON TOWER!! Cover, Brutes win!

Winners: The Brawling Brutes, by pinfall

A powerful fight from both teams, but Dunne & Ridge prove they’ve got that grit! Will they be rolling towards tag title opportunities before the Deadline? Will Scrypts and his boys have to go back to the drawing board for this one?


Joe Gacy speaks.

He stands atop the roof as he says, “I’ve been wandering aimlessly, like a man lost in the desert, looking for the last drop of water that doesn’t exist. I’ve paid attention to the messages rather than the people listening, but that’s just me. I’m like a ghost wandering the halls of NXT, trying to find my place, my purpose. And on nights like tonight, I can feel the energy of the people below me reverberate up through my feet. The same people that label me and try to put me into occupied spaces because I seem like I’m somebody familiar to them. But I’m just me. Nobody knows me. I don’t fit in. And this is where I get real.

“I’m not here to burn any ships, be the biggest dog in the yard and flip justice on anybody. I’m not obsessed with the spotlight, I’m me. And I’m here, right now. Unhinged? Maybe. Maniac? I’m not here to argue that. But this, this is where it begins. And this is where it ends. Maybe, this is where I let go. But then again, maybe it’s not.” Gacy throws the camera off the roof!! Is Gacy going to live on the edge until he’s finally on top of NXT?


Gigi Dolin VS Arianna Grace!

The Toxic Avenger told the Beauty Queen to get ready, and now the moment of truth is here. With time still on the clock, will someone prove themselves worthy of an Iron Survivor Qualifier?

NXT returns and Arianna makes her entrance. The bell rings and the fans rally behind Gigi. Gigi and Arianna circle, tie up, and Arianna arm-drags. Arianna cheers herself but fans are a bit torn. The two reset, tie up, and Gigi waistlocks to O’Conner Roll, TWO! Gigi teases Arianna and the two reset again. They tie up, Arianna knees low, then headlocks. Gigi powers out, follows, and runs Arianna over! Then arm-drags! Gigi has the armlock and the fans cheer. Arianna fights up, pulls hair, and puts Gigi on the ropes. Arianna whips, Gigi ducks ‘n’ dodges, and CROSSBODIES! Cover, TWO!

Fans duel, Gigi runs up into a kick, Arianna DECKS her! Cover, TWO! Arianna grows frustrated and she drags Gigi up. Arianna whips, runs in and elbows in the corner! Then she snap suplexes Gigi down! Cover, TWO! Arianna drags Gigi up, whips her again, but Gigi dodges to roll her up this time! TWO, but Gigi turns Arianna to backslide! TWO, and Gigi cradles! TWO! Arianna runs up to ELBOW Gigi down! Arianna dribbles Gigi off the mat, then drags her up to throw her down! Arianna then drags Gigi into a cover, TWO! Arianna clamps onto a chinlock but the fans rally. Gigi endures, fights up, and pries at the hold. Arianna throws her down!

Arianna drops the elbow but Gigi avoids it! Gigi then runs up to RAM, UPPERCUT and ROCK Arianna! Then a KICK and a KNEE and down goes Arianna! Gigi roars, she rallies on Arianna with running forearms! Gigi wrenches to LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Arianna is still in this but Gigi runs in at the corner. Arianna dodges to send her into buckles! Backslide, feet on the ropes! The ref sees that and says no! Arianna begs him to understand, it was an accident! But Gigi ROUNDHOUSES, and then clinches for the FINAL NAIL! Cover, Gigi wins!

Winner: Gigi Dolin, by pinfall

Arianna did show her skills, but it just wasn’t enough to get away with one! Gigi has a big win, is she on the short list for Deadline?


NXT looks at the history of Robert Stone & Von Wagner.

A narrator says, “This story of a journey towards respect and friendship started with a simple photograph. Two men, Von Wagner & Mr. Stone, started their WWE careers on the same day. Total strangers, unknowing their lives would one day be connected. Initially, both found failure rather than success. With a common bond of rubbing people the wrong way, these two superstars joined forces. Trust was slowly being built with each passing mile traveled together. It was Stone who recognized the duo had plateaued and pushed for more. After multiple failed attempts, Von let his guard down and bared his soul to Mr. Stone, and the NXT Universe.

“Finally comfortable in his own skin, Von was confronted by a grown version of the same bullies Von faced as a child.” Bron Breakker brutalized Von, but supported by Stone, Von faced his fears head on. It was Stone’s willingness to go to battle for his friend that was the final confirmation to Von that Stone wasn’t just a friend, but he was family. Von may have lost the rematch with Bron, but the shattered table was enough. Two men who started on the same day shared a hug and showed us how far they’ve come, together.”

Von and Stone also watch this video package.

A lot of memories and history there. That is powerful stuff. Yeah, they’ve been through a lot. Von’s been meaning to say, but Stone says no problem. He’s welcome. Hey, is Von okay? Yeah, he’s fine. Why? Von is touching the surgery scar a lot, though. Stone invites Von over to dinner with the family. Von says if Mrs. Stone makes that pasta with the sausages, he will be there! He is down, two whole plates! Stone says good, he’ll put the call in. Okay, but easy on the asparagus. That is no joke. Please, cut those out. Asparagus sucks. But Von & Stone are becoming even closer now, will they take over NXT together, too?


Backstage interview with Eddy Thorpe.

McKenzie is with the Alpha Wolf, and says that while he has had a big rise this year, he hasn’t been on NXT in a few weeks. Where’s he been? Eddy says this year has been a trip. Last time we saw him was that strap match. Eddy may have won, but it depleted him, both physically and mentally. Eddy needed time to recharge and get outside, where he likes to be. Eddy is 100% and wants to show JBL and Jerry Lawler just who to pick for the Iron Survivor. But then in walks Drew Gulak, Charlie Dempsey & Myles Borne. Gulak says if Eddy thinks he’s 100%, and that he’s getting into the Iron Survivor, then he’s as deluded as Joe Gacy.

Dempsey tells Eddy that he will stretch Eddy in no time, showing no quarter. Eddy says that for years, the toughest men in the world have tried, but they’ve never broken him. Eddy is a fighter. Dempsey says that fighting spirit isn’t why he never got broken. It’s because he never got put to the test by people like Gulak’s crew. Eddy says we’ll just see about that. Will the Alpha Wolf show his Strong Style beats Dempsey’s technical savagery?

Media again swarms Andre Chase.

Chase says he is devastated that Chase U lost the tag team titles, but at this moment, he has no further comment. And then honk honk! Jacy Jayne drives up, Chase gets in, and they get out of there. Will they ever let Chase rest? Or will the questions only stop once we have answers?


Wes Lee VS Baron Corbin!

The Cardiac Kid has been called a quitter, mostly by Corbin, but if that were true, then Wes wouldn’t have come back at all. Will Wes show Corbin what it really means to be No BS? Or will Corbin build momentum towards the NXT Championship after burning this ship?

The bell rings and the two circle. The fans rally behind Wes, the two tie up, but Wes gets around to fire body shots and fast hands! Corbin has boxing experience so he guards well, but Wes throws in some kicks, too! Wes corners Corbin, fires off more shots, the ref counts but Wes whips. Corbin reverses to YANK Wes down! Fans boo but Corbin stands Wes up to ROCK him! Wes stumbles and Corbin stands him up in a corner. Corbin CHOPS and Wes sputters! Corbin storms up again, whips corner to corner, but Wes comes back to RANA! And ENZIGURI! And DROPKICK! Wes keeps moving, basement dropkick! Cover, ONE!!

Wes keeps on Corbin with a facelock but Corbin fights up. Corbin powers his way to a suplex, BRAINBUSTER! Wes flounders, but Corbin runs to SENTON! Wes moves so Corbin crashes down! Wes gets up to BUZZSAW! Corbin flops over and sputters to ropes. Wes hurries to cover, ONE!! Corbin still has gas in the tank but Wes RAMS into him! Wes goes up and over, slides under and rolls to KANGAROO KICK! And then front KICK! And ENZIGURI! Corbin flops again and then bails out. The fans rally up, Wes builds speed and DIVES! But into a DEEP SIX to the floor! Fans boo but Corbin stands tall as NXT goes picture in picture.

Corbin snarls as he storms up on Wes. Corbin drags him up and whips Wes over barriers! The ref reprimands, Corbin goes back to where he left Wes, and he brings Wes up, only for Wes to ROCK him with haymakers! Wes leaps but Corbin catches him, and POSTS him! Corbin puts Wes in, covers, TWO! Corbin is annoyed but he storms back up on Wes. Corbin mocks the fans rallying for Wes, and then he drags Wes up to put in a corner. Corbin whips corner to corner hard, and Wes falls back! Cover, TWO! Corbin is annoyed again but he still mocks the fans. Corbin drags Wes up, but Wes throws body shots! And haymakers!

Wes runs, rolls, but Corbin stops that to fireman’s carry! But Wes shifts to crucifix takedown! TWO, and Corbin KNEES Wes low! Corbin storms up on Wes, drags him back and rains down HAMMER ‘N’ ANVIL ELBOWS! Then he clamps on a half nelson chinbar combo. NXT returns to single picture as the fans rally up, and Wes endures being thrashed around. Wes fights up and he throws body shots. Corbin knees low, whips Wes around in a circle, then short arm LARIATS! Corbin then stands over Wes, to rain down forearms! The fans boo but Corbin lets off with a smirk. Corbin drags Wes up to bump off buckles.

Corbin throws down more elbows! The ref counts, Corbin lets off to argue with him, and then Corbin goes back for Wes. Corbin ROCKS Wes with a forearm, then smothers him into the buckles as he throws down more elbows! The ref backs Corbin off, fans boo, but Corbin runs in. Wes dodges, Corbin POSTS himself! Wes fires off haymakers, Corbin clamps on both hands but Wes CLUBS free, clinches and throws KNEES! Corbin shoves Wes away but Wes returns to SHOTGUN! Corbin falls out of the ring! Fans fire up as Wes DIVES! Direct hit and they’re on the desk! Wes fires down furious fists and the fans love it!

Wes SMACKS Corbin off the desk, SUPERKICKS him, and fans rally for “NXT! NXT!” as Corbin staggers around the way. Wes runs to use the corner, 619!! Corbin ends up in the ring, Wes climbs a corner, and Wes MISSILE DROPKICKS! Cover, TWO! Wes is frustrated but he keeps on Corbin with hands and a sweep to the legs! Corbin ducks the buzzsaw but the DOUBLE STOMPS hit! Wes runs, into a fireman’s carry! DEATH VALLEY DRIVER! Cover, TWO! Corbin is furious but the fans fire up! Corbin drags Wes up, fans actually cheer him on, END OF- NO, Wes slips free, runs in, but into a tilt-o-whirl BACKBREAKER!

Wes gets up?! Wes rebounds to ROLLING KICK! Corbin rebounds to BOOT! Both men fall back and fans fire up again! Corbin storms over to Wes, drags him to a drop zone, and he goes up the corner?! But Wes ROCKS Corbin first! Wes throws more hands, but Corbin shoves him. So Wes GAMANGIRIS Corbin down to the ground! Fans fire up, Wes builds speed again, and Wes FLIES, onto Dom!? Dirty Dom took the hit for Corbin, and fans boo. Wes fires off on Dom for getting involved when he’s not wanted! The ring count is climbing, though, and Wes hurries back in! Wes beats the count, but runs into END OF DAYS!! Cover, Corbin wins!

Winner: Baron Corbin, by pinfall

Dirty Dom did Wes dirty, but now Corbin rains down fists! Corbin is a sore winner, but here comes Dragunov! Fans fire up as Dragunov slides in, gets around, and GERMAN SUPLEXES Corbin! Fans join in for “UN! BE! SIEG! BAR!” TORPEDO- END OF DAYS?!? Corbin stands tall over the Mad Dragon, then smothers the belt into his face! Fans boo but Corbin is the most fired up he’s ever been! But speaking of fired up, Dragunov is furious as he gets a mic to shout “BARON! BARON! You have made a grave mistake. And now you need to live with those consequences. You want an NXT Championship match so bad, huh? YOU GOT IT!!”

Fans fire up and Dragunov says, “I’ll see you at Deadline!!” The match is made, but will the Mad Dragon’s flames be what burns the ships? Or will this Baron dethrone the Czar to finally become NXT Champion?

My Thoughts:

A great NXT with so much going on, but one major gripe to me. Why did Chase U have to lose the tag titles so soon? They only won these back at Halloween Havoc Night One, and that was three weeks ago. Plus, this Chase U scandal story only started recently, they should’ve held the titles a little longer to really add to the drama. Though, what even is the drama? I must’ve missed when they said it on screen, but what scandal is this? Recruiting for Chase U? Financial? Can’t be sexual, that’s too close to Vince McMahon’s real life scandal. But I do appreciate Jacy helping him out at the end. Could something be developing between those two?

But Tony & Stacks winning the titles back does help motivate the rest of the tag division in that promo we saw. We’re going to get great stuff out of Edris & Malik VS Garza & Carrillo, but with The Creeds now on Raw, it makes me feel that Garza & Carrillo should’ve won the TLC match all the more. How can they get back into the tag title scene when they first lost to Chase & Duke in the Bada Bing Battle Royal, and then lost to Julius & Brutus on their way out? Almost makes their gimmick makeover seem pointless now. But even then, if Tony & Stacks got the belts back now, that must mean they’re retaining through Deadline.

There was great throughlines of stories to help with the Deadline qualifiers, too. Supernova Sessions was a lot of fun, and I liked the swerve pulled on Dar. I also thought Otis was gonna be next up after last week, and so Alpha Academy used that to their advantage, and now Gable is going to have a match with Nakamura on Raw and the Heritage Cup match with Dar on NXT. That is a big week for Gable, and sadly I think he’s losing both. Though, maybe Otis will still get his shot at NXT Deadline or something, no idea. And then Lash VS Roxie was good stuff, but I should’ve known between Meta Four and Kiana James that Roxie would get screwed.

Kiana bragging to the locker room got things stirred up and we got a solid match from Gigi VS Arianna. Gigi wins, of course, but Arianna does a good job with character work. There is a very good chance Gigi is in a qualifier, and I am sure Kiana will still get a qualifier, too, for Roxie to return the favor and keep her from moving on. We also got a good promo from Trick Melo Gang where it still feels like Melo is the one whodunnit. But he plays it off well, and there were great moments during Trick VS Joe Coffey where Melo half did and half didn’t help Trick against Gallus. Lexis King was definitely just wanting to take credit for the attack if it helps his clout, but it’s gotta be Melo.

Brutes VS OTM was a great match, and Brutes winning really surprised me. At the same time, Brutes took a loss to Pretty Deadly, and Dunne definitely wasn’t the one taking a loss in this. HHH and HBK both really like Dunne, I’m just not sure where this story goes from here. I suppose a stipulation based rematch would be in order, it’s exactly what the Brutes did with Pretty Deadly. Good promos from Lyra, both with the coaches watching film and with Xia in the tea ceremony. Lyra VS Xia is going to be intense, even for a title match on TV, but I would think Lyra wins. Xia’s gonna have a rough week just like Gable, losing to Becky on Raw and then Lyra on NXT.

Good promo from Eddy with Gulak’s guys, though I wonder where Kemp is right now. Eddy VS Dempsey is going to be really good but I feel like Eddy’s gonna need allies against Gulak’s group. Maybe he can call upon Briggs & Jensen? Great video for Von & Stone, and good little promo from them. Good promo from Bron and Dijak, and that has to tease that Bron gets in on the qualifiers. And while somewhat controversial, Joe Gacy gave us the best promo of his NXT career. Without saying it, he made sure to tell us he isn’t like Bray Wyatt, he isn’t like Corbin or the members of The Shield (Ambrose/Moxley specifically). And then throwing the camera off the roof, what a wild way to finish! At this point, Gacy has to be in the Iron Survivor, and he might even win.

And good stuff going into tonight’s main event. Good promo from Dom and Corbin to plant the seed for that interference, and good promo from Wes and Dragunov to keep in mind that Wes will want the North American Championship back. Wes VS Dom has been set up through their interaction, and Corbin wins both the match and the brawl to give us that match for Deadline. Corbin is doing great work to where the fans are appreciating him, but I still say Dragunov retains in his first defense against someone that isn’t Melo.

My Score: 8.9/10

AEW shares footage from after Saturday Night Collision.

Eddie Kingston asks them what they want him to say. He knew this was gonna be tough. Tony Khan didn’t put any scrubs in this tournament. Eddie just maybe got too cocky, thinking that since he put two belts in the pot, he was a given winner. No one deserves to win, everything is earned. Eddie has Bryan next but he’s behind the 8 ball. Eddie says he will not do this. He will not go backwards. Humble in victory and humble in defeat. Eddie has to go heal up, Epsom salt bath, all that good stuff. The Mad King vows he will be ready for the American Dragon.

Bryan Danielson responds.

Bryan says he was actually impressed by the confidence Eddie had to put up both his titles for the tournament. But now, one loss and Eddie feels he’s behind the 8 ball? Against Bryan? Bryan fractured his orbital bone, needed surgery in two places, and yet he is coming into this tournament on fire! He is NOT behind the 8 ball, he is NOT going to be humble, he is here to win this and be the first AEW Triple Crown! Will Bryan’s Blue League start be Eddie’s Blue League end?


Tony Schiavone is backstage.

He brings up that Sting’s final match is coming. AEW Revolution, Sunday, March 3rd, 2024. And when it comes to where they’ll have Sting’s final match, they thought of the many great venues across the world, but what better place for Sting’s final match than Greensboro, North Carolina and the Greensboro Coliseum? So many great Sting matches were held there, but one in particular that comes to mind is 1988, Sting VS Ric Flair for the World Heavyweight Championship. So Greensboro Coliseum in North Carolina, get ready! Joining Schiavone now are those very legends, Sting and Ric Flair!

First off, 24-0, the longest win streak in AEW right now, what a fitting place for Sting to have his final match and maybe end on 25 than in Greensboro. Sting says yeah, wow, all those years ago, it was March 8th, 1988, his very first world title match against perhaps the greatest world champion of all time in The Nature Boy. Sting would’ve never guessed that night, 35 years later, we’d be here now. The memories, 45 minutes but a draw, commercial free, the first time in TV history that any sporting event even did that. But that’s not the real point of it. The big deal was being in there with Ric Flair. That was a make or break night, and so thank you, Ric, for putting Sting on the map.

Sting says yeah, that is a fitting place to end his career all these years later, Greensboro. Schiavone says so many great memories, and for him and Flair, forty years ago, does he remember? Oh, Flair knows. The words cannot be spoken to emphasize what is about to happen! Greensboro, where Sting, make no mistake, Ric didn’t make Sting a thing, Sting made himself! 45 MINUTES! Commercial free! With Flair! Unthinkable! Sting walked back there to 25 wrestlers going, “Jesus! You’re the man! You did it, Stinger!” He went out there and did it like a man! That’s what this business is all about.

Flair is 74 years old, standing next to the Icon, with his friend, Schiavone, and going back to Greensboro for what will be the greatest moment of his life, and God knows Flair’s had some good ones. He is honored to be there at Sting’s side! They shake hands, and Flair says the ACC Tournament and all that, nah, this is one for the ages! Highway 85 will be lined up from Richmond, all the way to Charlotte, like it always was! Sting, The Nature Boy, and AEW are coming to Greensboro! Let’s give it to ’em! “WOO~!” It’s the 80s all over again! Tickets on sale December 15th! IT’S SHOWTIME!

Mark hobbles up, so Rush goes out after him. Rush runs in, but Mark ducks and RAILING BACK SUPLEX! Rush writhes, the ring count starts again, and Mark gets on the apron. Fans fire up as Mark says BANG BANG! FOLEY ELBOW! Fans fire up again and Mark high fives the front row. Mark leaves Rush behind now as the count climbs.

RJ City interviews “Timeless” Toni Storm.

Madame Storm seems rather bothered by something. RJ gets her attention but she tells him to sit. And don’t be so loud. RJ does sit, and Mariah May takes the title for Storm. RJ wants to bring up the championship acceptance speech last week. Yes, and she was rudely interrupted! Yeah, that’s true. How is she feeling? Storm says they partied well into the night, spent some time at the compound, JFK or one of the Kennedys was there. But now she is very fatigued, dehydrated, and has a touch of the gout. Oh, wow. Well, he wants to inform her that she is scheduled to defend the AEW Women’s World Championship. But given her state, is she worried at all?

Worried? Was Fatty Arbuckle worried? Was Jean Harlow worried? Was Frances bloody Farmer worried? No, they all turned out fine, and so will she. Before she goes, take off her shoe, she’s feeling swollen. RJ does take off her shoes for her, but will Storm have to focus before someone takes the title off her?


MJF is here!

Fans cheer as the AEW World Champion walks out here with the help of his cane, mic in the other hand. He has them cut his music, he gets into the ring, and the fans cheer him on. MJF gets right to it as he says “December 30th, Nassau Coliseum, Worlds End, it will be Samoa Joe VS yours truly for the grandest prize of ’em all, The Triple B, the AEW World Championship.” Fans cheer that, and MJF wants to be honest, though. When it comes to Joe as a person, eeeeeeh MJF doesn’t like him. But when it comes to Joe professional, MJF respects him.

MJF respects what Joe has done for the industry, and most importantly, when Joe came into AEW, he didn’t come here to line his pockets, he came here because he believes in those three letters. Fans cheer for “A E DUB! A E DUB!” and MJF says back in the early 2000s, MJF remembers getting a poster in his mailbox and it was for TNA Wrestling. And he remembers thinking, what even is this all about? He tuned in and couldn’t have been happier. He saw insane feats of athleticism, he saw a new cast of pro-wrestlers he’d never heard of before, but most of all, he saw one man among the rest, and that was the Samoan Submission Machine.

While Samoa Joe may’ve looked unconventional, he didn’t seem to care, and neither did any of the fans. Because every time Joe walked through the curtain, we knew he was the baddest man walking on God’s Green Earth. Now unfortunately, later on in his career, Joe’s talents were not recognized and he was not afforded the opportunity to be a world champion in the WWE. Fans boo, but MJF says what Joe did for this sport was bigger than that. “Joe proved you don’t have to be a massive male model bodybuilder to be a top guy in this sport. Samoa Joe broke the mold. Samoa Joe proved alternatives matter.

“And because of the road that Joe paved, it has allowed for a man like me to stand before you today. Without a guy like Joe, there may be no AEW. So Joe, very quickly, what I’d like to say, as much as this all pains me to admit, thank you.” Fans cheer that and join in, “Thank You, Joe! Thank You, Joe!” Yes, thank you, Joe! However… MJF has actually, though grateful to have gone down the road Joe paved, MJF isn’t too shabby himself, now is he? Fans cheer that. MJF managed to pave his own road, and built on a new alternative. He is AEW day one, and he has helped build this place brick by brick! Fans cheer “M J F! M J F!”

MJF says he did that by defeating some of the biggest names in this industry! Names like Cody Rhodes, CM Punk, Bryan Danielson, Chris Jericho, Jon Moxley, Kenny Omega. But of all the names MJF has had to face in this ring, the one name he looks back on, and not only was he lucky to win, he was lucky to survive, that is Joe. Samoa Joe is a wrestling legend. But December 30th is not about Joe’s legacy. It’s about MJF’s! December 30th is about answering the question, “Can Max Friedman outlast the Final Boss of this sport one more time?” So now, MJF is gonna make a promise. He promises to everyone watching at home and everyone here in this arena.

MJF promises that on December 30th, it doesn’t matter if his left knee keeps sliding in and out, if his right hip keeps popping in and out of socket, if his right shoulder is hanging on by a threat, or if Joe beats him within an inch of his life. Joe could be King Kong and Godzilla incarnate. Because MJF promises that on December 30th, he shows the world that it is not about the size of the dog in the fight, but the size of the fight in the dog! And if you want to take what’s his… at Worlds End, you’ll have to put MJF down! MJF even breaks his cane!! Fans fire up with MJF, but then the lights go down.

Now there are lights blinking all over the place. MJF looks around, but THE DEVIL’S MINIONS ATTACK! Fans boo as one of them has a baseball bat!! But here comes Joe!! Joe said he’d have MJF’s back so here he is! He YANKS the big guy out, gets that bat, and he runs the rest off! Cameras have trouble here, but when things come back, a message types out on screen. “In the shadows, our game begins. Next week, MJF & Samoa Joe… will you face the unknown in a tag match? Are you a hero, Max?” The Devil has made his challenge to the champ! The fans chant “DO IT! DO IT!” and “He’s Our Scumbag!” Joe tries to get MJF to ignore all this, it’s what this Devil wants!

But MJF says “I’m so sick of your Scooby-Doo BS! LEMME EXPLAIN SOMETHING TO YOU! I am not dealing with your crap when I got that guy breathing down my neck at Worlds End. No no. I am going to take out all of your men, one by one. I am going to unmask you, you coward! And next week, you wanna tag match?! YOU’RE ON!!” Joe isn’t for it, but the challenge has been accepted. Will Joe just have to save MJF from himself?


Wardlow VS AR Fox!

Speaking of someone who wants to take everything away from MJF, the War Dog is on the warpath, just waiting for the right moment. After what we just saw, is MJF going to be served up on a silver platter?

But wait! Fox BOOTS Wardlow down off the apron! And then FLIES out! But Wardlow stays up! So Fox FLIES again! Direct hit but Wardlow is still up! Wardlow HEADBUTTS Fox, then whips him at the apron. Fox 619s on the apron to hit back! And then he goes up the corner to MOONSAULT, but Wardlow catches him! SLAM on the apron, and then Wardlow box jumps up to the apron. Wardlow storms in, fans rally up, and Wardlow drags Fox up for an OVERHEAD BELLY2BELLY! Now with both men in the ring, the bell finally sounds and this is actually a match. Wardlow storms up on Fox in the corner, to then TOSS him across the way!

Fox flounders out of the ring and Wardlow is having fun now. Wardlow goes out to stalk Fox, CLUB him on the back, and the ring count climbs. Wardlow hauls Fox up to TOSS him back in! Fans rally, Wardlow storms back in, and Wardlow drags Fox up. Fox shoves Wardlow but Wardlow CLUBS him! Wardlow trophy lifts, but Fox slips free! Wardlow runs in, but only gets buckles as Fox slips out to the apron! Fox swings to dropkick, then he goes up to 450 SPLASH! Cover, ONE!! Wardlow snarls and Fox is stunned! Fox runs in to BOOT! Wardlow doesn’t budge so Fox BOOTS him again! And again! Fox runs, but Wardlow pops him up for a SPINEBUSTER!

Wardlow winds up, to LARIAT Fox down! Wardlow then hauls Fox up, POWERBOMB! The symphony begins as fans want more! Wardlow drags Fox up, reels him back in, another POWERBOMB! And then Wardlow goes up the corner, to SWANTON BOMB!! Fans fire up and Wardlow still isn’t done! He reels Fox back in, to LAST RIDE POWERBOMB!!! The ref checks, Fox is OUT! Wardlow wins!

Winner: Wardlow, by pinfall

The remixed Powerbomb Symphony was too much for Fox, and Wardlow storms off. When and where will Wardlow sink his teeth into MJF?

Backstage interview with Action & Top Flight.

Renee is with them and congratulates them on the big win. So good to see Dante back, how is that leg? But then Penta El Zero Miedo and Alex Abrahantes step in. Penta offers a fist bump, and Dante accepts. They’re all good given Penta was responsible for the broken leg in that Reach for the Sky Ladder match. But then Penta counts, one, two, three. Bring ’em in. Komander and El Hijo Del Vikingo join Penta, that makes one, two, three. And Cero Miedo! Dante nods, when and where will we see this top tier trios match go down?

The Princess of the Black Throne successfully defended her gold on Collision against Lady Frost, but now she takes on the Queen of Joshi! And for this match, Dealer’s Choice says submissions can NOT win the match! Then if Julia can’t be Hartless, will she just have to be ruthless?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see if the House Always Wins!

The bell rings and fans rally up behind Julia. Julia soaks it up, but Emi laughs at it. Emi and Julia smirk as they stare down, then they approach.

Winner: Julia Hart, by pinfall (still AEW TBS Champion)

Another defense in the books, Julia is still golden! Will she keep on winning with such unpredictable rules?


Backstage interview with Mariah May.

RJ City is with Miss May and says we saw her at Full Gear and last week, but we also know she’s here, hungry for more. Mariah says yes she is. She knows she’s the new girl and all, but she did just come from Stardom, and she had quite the run. She is dying to show us what she can do. So thanks for connecting her with Toni Storm. RJ says it’s nothing, he and Toni go way back, used to play squash together. No, really, RJ is quite the curator. And Mariah knows Toni likes him, so this means the world to her. No, no, Toni makes things happen. He’s just happy to help. Mariah seems a bit disappointed, but RJ says without further ado, go get ’em!

Mariah knocks on Tony Khan’s door, steps inside, and talks with the boss. Will this Tony be just as accommodating as Toni Storm?


Christian Cage is here!

The TNT Champion, the Patriarch, makes his way to the ring, security right behind him. Captain Charisma then gets a mic while the fans boo, and he says what he’d like to do right now is go ahead and invite the Rated R Superstar to this ring right now. Fans fire up for that, and Christian says he knows Edge is back there. Fans shout “ADAAAAM~!” and Christian says he just wants to talk about what Edge said on Collision. So if Edge doesn’t mind making his presence felt, Christian would appreciate it. But still no response? Did Christian make sure to do this when Edge isn’t here?

Christian waits, gets upset, and asks Adam “ADAAAM~!” that he’d like to speak with him in this ring. Please, someone, hit the mic, get Adam’s attention, something. Or should Christian go back there to speak with him? “You think you know him.” And here comes Edge!! Fans fire up as Edge storms into the ring, and of course the security becomes a wall in front of Christian. Edge paces and Christian says listen, management wanted this, not him. Fans boo that garbage, but Christian says they don’t need security. He asks these men to vacate the ring. They shrug and bail out, even though Edge looks ready to pounce.

Christian brings up that last week, Edge challenged him to a match for the TNT Championship on December 6th, Dynamite in Montreal. Christian is here to tell Edge that they won’t make it to Montreal. They get face to face and fans fire up. Christian says they won’t make it to Montreal because “I’m sorry.” What? Edge is also confused, and Christian says he knows what we’re all thinking. Christian is only sorry because he’s all alone, right? Fans confirm and they chant “BULL~ SHID!” at him! Christian asks them to understand. Edge took out “The Prodigy” Nick Wayne, he took out Killswitch/Luchasaurus, but that’s not why Christian’s sorry.

He won’t lie, he was pissed about what Edge did to Lucha- er, Killswitch, with not one but two Con-Chair-Tos. Christian was so mad, he jumped out of his house, got in his car and just drove around. He needed to think, needed fresh air. And somewhere during that trip, it turned into one of reflection. It turned into a roadtrip of soul searching, digging down deep, trying to understand why he became the person that he is, this guy who says and does such unsavory things. And then he remembered those times he and Edge would borrow Christian’s mom’s Ford Taurus. They nicknamed it “Toby the Taurus” because they took it everywhere when they were trying to make it.

They didn’t care where they went, they were broke, not a dime to their names, but they didn’t care. They were having the time of their lives! They knew they were gonna make it. They didn’t know how, but they knew they would. And dammit, did they ever make it, huh? They went on to become multiple-time tag team champions, and Christian will say it, the greatest tag team that ever lived! Fans do cheer that. Christian and Edge then became multiple time world champions, two of the greatest careers in this sport. But take the wrestling away, and it runs even deeper. Everyone knows Edge grew up with a single mom. Everyone knows that Edge didn’t have a father figure.

Fans boo, already sensing where this is going! Christian wants Edge to listen! Yes, he is the Patriarch of AEW, but in no way is he suggesting he’s Edge’s father. Christian is Edge’s brother. And in turn, Christian’s father became like Edge’s father. Edge went on family trips, sat at the dinner table, slept over! When Edge needed discipline, Christian’s dad treated him the same as his own kids. He picked Edge up, brushed him off, hugged him and cheered him on. To this very day, he is still Edge’s biggest fan. So listen, Christian will just say it. They weren’t just random guys thrown together. “I love you, man.” Fans boo that one!

Christian says they’re family. And listen, when Edge’s mom passed a few years ago, that was the hardest time of Edge’s life. Christian knows that. But some time before, she said, “What I wouldn’t give to see you guys in that ring, teaming one last time.” Christian started thinking, that they should do this for her! Let’s go on the journey together again, like Edge wanted! Edge & Christian, for Judy “Judemeister” Copeland! Let’s do it for her! Fans cheer for Judy, but Edge is conflicted. Christian drops the mic, holds the belt, and then rushes Edge! Edge LOW BLOWS Christian first!! Fans cheer as Christian leans on Edge in pain.

Christian slumps down and Edge lets him fall. Fans want that one more time, but Edge gets the mic. “Nice try, dumbass.” Edge tells him to sit up when he’s talking. Edge grabs the belt, tells Christian to shine it up real nice. Hell, sleep with it if he wants. Because next week, the title’s coming home with Edge! Oh, and one more thing, Edge almost forgot. G F Y!! Fans are thunderous as Edge takes his leave. Will Edge crush Christian’s spirit as payback for everything he’s said and done?


AEW Continental Classic, Gold League: Jay White VS Swerve Strickland!

The Switchblade and the Realest are both 1-0 with three points, and now they are going to battle in what could be the decisive battle in this block! With no Juice Robinson, no Ass Boys, no Prince Nana or Brian Cage, who will prove to be the slipperiest snake in all of AEW?

The bell rings and fans fire up for “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White still throws guns up, but he and Swerve then tie up.

Fans fire up and security helps Swerve, but then White drags him back in. White puts Swerve in the ring, mockingly asks, “Whose House?” and he stomps Swerve. White wrenches the arm, CLUBS it, and then CHOPS! White again mockingly asks, “Whose House?” “SWERVE’S HOUSE!” White CHOPS Swerve, but Swerve BOOTS back! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS!

Fans are getting a much more interactive experience than expected!

Swerve drags White back up, White grabs at fans desperately, but the fans can’t do anything for him as Swerve dumps White back over. Swerve pushes White around, goes up the apron, and then he FLYING STOMPS White down! Fans fire up, Swerve puts White in, and then aims from the apron. But White gets a leg in the ropes! Swerve claws at White, pushes him away, but White BOOTS Swerve, then DRAPING DDTS! Fans rally for Swerve but White drags Swerve up to CHOP! Fans “WOO~!” and Dynamite goes picture in picture.

White sits Swerve up again, to CHOP him back down! White drags Swerve up again, goes up a corner, and mocks Swerve, to then hop back down and CHOP again! Swerve writhes, White drags him up, and White TOSSES Swerve out of the ring. White goes out after Swerve, but he CHOPS back! Swerve then clinches to hit a BACKBREAKER! White writhes, Swerve goes up to the apron again, and he BOOTS White back down! Fans rally up, Swerve drags White into the ring, and then clamps on a cording hold. White grabs ropes, the ref counts, Swerve takes a swing, but White EXPLODERS Swerve up and out!

White goes out after Swerve, hauls him up, and APRON GOURD BUSTERS! Swerve writhes and flounders but White refreshes the ring count. White then RAMS Swerve into steel steps! Swerve gets in the ring, White pursues and covers, TWO! White clamps onto Swerve’s bad arm, then traps the other, and he stretches Swerve out as Dynamite returns to single picture. Swerve fights up, but White throws him down by hair! White again mocks the chant, “Whose House?” Bryan commends Swerve on toughness. He had a brutal Texas Deathmatch with Hangman Page, and the only thing taped up is that arm.

Speaking of, White clamps onto the arms again, but Swerve endures. Swerve fights up, throws body shots, but White throws him down by his hair! Fans boo, Swerve gets up to SLAP White! Swerve CHOPS, White waistlocks, but Swerve swings elbows. White gets under to SAIDO! White then storms up to drag Swerve up, CORNER HALF HATCH! Cover, TWO! Swerve is still in this but White scuffs him. White mockingly says he needs his points. White knees Swerve low, and again, but Swerve blocks the chop! Swerve wrenches, gets around, HAMMERLOCK BACK SUPLEX! White writhes and fans fire up!

Swerve snarls, storms up on White, and he ROCKS him! Body shot! Forearm! Body shot! Repeat! Swerve snapmares, rolls, but White catches the Complete Shot, but then Swerve slips out of the Urenage! Swerve goes to a corner, White runs in but Swerve goes up and over to O’Conner and Eddy Gordo RANA! White tumbles, staggers, into the SOMERSAULT COMPLETE SHOT! And then a gator roll into a deadlift suplex! Fans fire up as Swerve covers, TWO!! White survives and Swerve grows frustrated. Fans still rally up behind Swerve, and he grabs White’s wrist. White resists but Swerve still drags him up.

White reaches out, kicks Swerve’s legs, then gets free. White swings, Swerve dodges and comes back, COMPLETE SHOT from White! White then waistlocks to deadlift GERMAN SUPLEX! White runs up, but Swerve DISCUS LARIATS! Fans are thunderous while both men are down and Bryan says, “How incredible are these two men?!” A standing count starts, both men stir, and White flounders to ropes. “This is Awesome!” as White comes back, he and Swerve go forehead to forehead, and they trade junkyard dog headbutts. Swerve laughs, White throws hands! Swerve throws them back! They go back and forth, faster and faster!

Fans rally up as the shots keep flying, and Swerve DECKS White! Fans fire up, Swerve smiles, but White grabs at Swerve’s legs. Swerve grabs at White, White CHOP BLOCKS! White then gets the bad arm, clinches, and URENAGES! Cover, TWO!! Swerve is still in this, this isn’t anything compared to Texas Death! White clamps on with the sleeper, though, and he hauls Swerve up. Swerve throws elbows, but White wrangles him for a FUJIWARA ARMBAR! Fans fire up, Swerve endures, White CLUBS away on the bad arm and pulls! Swerve reaches out, fights around, but White keeps him from ropes by pulling hair!

Swerve and White roll together, but Swerve slips around to get White’s arms trapped! Swerve stands on that arm! Finger gun and BANG!! The arm goes back and the fans tell Swerve he’s sick! Swerve grins, storms up on White and drags him up again. But White fights the half nelson and puts Swerve in a corner. The ref counts, White arm-drags free, but then Swerve sends him at the ref! White stops himself, LOW- NO! Swerve blocks the kick, he was paying attention to last week! Swerve slips around and hits a BACKBREAKER! Fans fire up, Swerve runs to HOUSE CALL!!

Swerve uses a leg to get free but White has him again, SNAP SLEEPER SUPLEX!! Then the clinch, BLADE- ARM-DRAG!! Cradle cover, SWERVE WINS!!!

Winner: Swerve Strickland, by pinfall (gains 3 points; White earns 0)

White is shocked that he got beat! The #Jay1 aside, these points go to The Realest! Will the Gold League soon be whose house?

My Thoughts:

A great Dynamite, with awesome Continental Classic matches. But also really good non-tournament matches, such as that Trios Match. Great return to action for Dante Martin, great win for him and his trio, and those three could really build themselves up into trios title contenders with matches like this. And really good TBS Championship match Julia and Emi, though they need to get better at bringing up how House Rules work. No Ropebreaks, the ring count is to 20, and there’s Dealer’s Choice. They just kinda threw out there that this was gonna be a No Submission Falls, which was honestly a brilliant move by Emi. But in the end, of course Julia wins, it’s still too early for her to lose this belt.

Wardlow squashing- heck, he demolished AR Fox, is fine for Wardlow but a shame for Fox. Wardlow is still staying strong as he waits for the right moment to go after MJF again, but maybe, just maybe, he’s been going after MJF all along as that big guy among the “gimp squad” that tried to get MJF tonight. Great promo from MJF to not just praise Joe but also bury Punk without having to actually reference Punk going back to WWE. Joe made the save as expected, and now they’re getting dragged into a tag match against any two of those goons, and who knows who they are really, but can’t wait to see how this all goes.

Awesome stuff from Christian and Edge tonight, a brilliant move for Christian to so blatantly play to Edge’s emotions just to save his own ass. But of course it was also brilliant for Edge to not fall for it at all and get the better of Christian. But uh, AEW needs to be better at live censoring their shows, that GFY got right past them. That aside, that TNT Championship match is going to be awesome stuff, could go either way, but I still want to see Luchasaurus betray Christian and finally become his own man-dinosaur. Not Jack Perry’s tag partner, not Christian’s henchman, but his own man doing his own stuff.

And as I said at the start, awesome Continental Classic matches. Bryan Danielson also being on commentary for these was a good move, that could easily be a thing he does after he retires, except I think part of retiring is staying home with the family. Anyway, Moxley VS Lethal was a great opening match, and I figured Moxley would win that. Maybe Lethal realizes he really has let Team Triple J weaken him with all their antics. Rush VS Briscoe then raised the bar, though with a somewhat scary moment where I thought Rush took a shot to the head but it was really a concern for his leg. Rush winning was a fair choice, and that puts pressure on a possible 0-2 VS 0-2, Lethal VS Briscoe in the next round. I say “possible” because Tony Khan doesn’t reveal the entire schedule at once.

And then just an awesome, borderline PPV level match of Swerve VS White. The fans were strongly behind Swerve, I was behind Swerve, so it’s great to see Swerve get to 2-0. Swerve’s becoming my top choice for Gold League and maybe even the entire thing. Swerve having the ROH World, NJPW Strong Openweight and the AEW Continental Championships, he could really do a lot with traveling between the three brands. Mogul Embassy is already in ROH given they’re ROH World Six Man Champions, and the Gates are in NJPW right now for World Tag League, so Swerve joining them pretty much everywhere, all four of them having belts, that’s great stuff to me.

My Score: 9/10

Time Limit Draw (both teams earn 1 point)

An incredible battle pushes both teams to their limits, but also pushes this to the time limit! The fans applaud both teams for giving it their all. And in the end, the teams shake hands again. But with no winners, there’s no closing address! The luchadores bow in thanks to all the fans, Bishamon wave good night, and they all head out. A draw is better than a loss, but will just getting one point this round come back to bite someone later on?


Here are the NEW B Block standings!

Alex Zayne & Lance Archer: 4-0, 8 points
Taichi & Yuya Uemura: 3-1, 6 points
Atlantis Jr. y Soberano Jr: 2-1-1, 5 points
Yota Tsuji & Zandokan Jr: 2-2, 4 points
ELP & Hikuleo: 2-2, 4 points
Bishamon: 1-2-1, 3 points
Bad Luck Fale & Jack Bonza: 1-3, 2 points
Yuji Nagata & Minoru Suzuki: 0-4, 0 points

My Thoughts:

A great round for B Block, with some real surprising results, too. Did not think Rogue Army would get their first win here, because I thought Tsuji & Zando were going to continue on pretty strong. Less surprised that Suzuki & Nagata still haven’t won, only because they were up against the NJPW Strong Openweight Tag Team Champions. ELP & Leo can’t lose too much, they’d be owing title shots all over the place. Then great stuff with Monster Sauce getting a big win over Taichi & Yuya, and a great move in the main event. Going for a time limit draw on a half hour match is a bit tricky, though, because things dragged a little in the middle to drag it out. But a draw is also a great way to keep Bishamon from owing more title matches while still not winning so as not to hurt Team CMLL.

My Score: 8.8/10
