Garza & Carrillo tried to pull one over on The Don, but he and The Underboss get the job done! Will Garza & Carrillo have to go back to the drawing board if they wanna get the titles?

 

Various superstars react to Baron Corbin’s video from last week.

Nathan Frazer says Ilja’s sacrifices are unreal. The pain, the isolation, all for the greater good of his family. That’s admirable. Axiom agrees. And then Corbin just “has everything.” Sure, that’s nice and all, from WrestleMania moments to cars and money and a family that’s around. Now, Frazer wants to be NXT Champion, too, but the Hard Hitting Home Truth is… Corbin’s lifestyle is certainly more desired. But then Dragunov steps in and says that means what Dragunov is doing is not worth it. Is that right, Frazer? No, not at all! Then Dragunov’s son shouldn’t be inspired by his actions? Is that it? No!

Frazer is just saying, you compare the two lives and Corbin’s- Seems so much better, right? Isn’t that what Frazer is saying? Seems like Frazer lacks respect. No, man, they’ve known each other for years. Dragunov knows the respect is there. Oh, well, respect here, respect there, but as soon as Dragunov turns his back, Frazer will say what he really thinks. Okay, first off, Frazer didn’t know Dragunov was lurking in the background. But while he’s here, Frazer will say this: YES, Frazer would prefer Corbin’s lifestyle, as would 99% of the people in NXT. Frazer won’t apologize for that. Well, they’re beyond that point anyway.

Oh, okay, Dragunov is a little tightly wound for Deadline. Frazer understands. Yes, Dragunov is tightly wound. And he knows the solution. Is the Mad Dragon going to rampage all over the Jersey Island Rocket?

 

Jerry “The King” Lawler speaks.

“NXT Universe, Jerry ‘The King’ Lawler here, and Shawn Michaels has given me the honor of selecting this week’s Iron Survivor Challenge qualifying matches. Now, let’s start out with the men. First of all, Badass Bron Breakker. He’s powerful, he’s explosive, and if he qualifies, he’s my pick to win at Deadline. Ah, but standing in his way is none other than Eddy Thorpe. Eddy wants to prove he’s ready. Eddy, it is your chance. And now, for the women. Kelani Jordan has really, really impressed me. And Kelani will face Kiana James. Kiana has all the tools to be a future women’s champion. There are my picks, so enjoy watching NXT.”

 

Josh Briggs, Brooks Jensen & Fallon Henley talk backstage.

Jensen says we’ve got the guy right here! Has it sunk in that he’s in the Iron Survivor Challenge? Yeah, he’s going to Deadline! Briggs says yeah, last week was the biggest match of his career. Wow, the biggest match of his career? Well, yeah! He beat a former NXT Champion when no one believed in him. Except y’all, he knows that. They hug it out, but Lexis King walks in. If it isn’t Mr. Iron Survivor Qualifier. With a little help from King, of course. No big deal. Credit where credit is due, Briggs beat Carmelo. JBL put his stamp of approval on him and Briggs knocked it out of the park. And Fallon was selected by Foley.

King offers a handshake but she says ew. The guys chuckle and King asks what’s funny. Last King checked, no one chose Jensen. Wonder why. Jensen wonders why King is stirring the pot. No stirring the pot, just calling it like he sees it. Well he sees nothing! King is a parasite of the spotlight! He wants the spotlight so bad, he and his beard can take center stage tonight. Tonight? Yeah, absolutely! Jensen is gonna show the Hall of Famers why they should’ve chosen him. Then sounds like a party. King heads out, will he end up dethroned by Country Strong?

 

Nikkita Lyons is in the gym!

She shared a video to her Instagram showing her working over a heavy bag. #ThePounceBack is in full effect, when and where will this lioness roar again?

 

Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge Qualifier: Kiana James VS Kelani Jordan!

The King has spoken, and we see The Calculator collide with the Princess of the Gym! With time running out, it’s time we see who wins that final spot in the Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge!

NXT returns as Kiana makes her entrance. The bell rings and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Kiana CLUBS Kelani! Kelani shakes it off, dodges the elbows, and fans rally up. Kelani blocks a kick but Kiana elbows her away. Kiana whips Kelani to a corner, stomps a mudhole and throws body shots. Kiana RAMS into Kelani, handsprings back and runs in to RAM Kelani again! Kiana mocks the rookie, whips her corner to corner, then runs in. Kelani goes up and over and comes back to DROPKICK! Fans fire up with Kelani and she stomps away on Kiana. Kelani RAMS into Kiana, RAMS again, and again!

Fans rally, the ref counts, but Kelani whips. Kiana reverses, Kelani reverses and headlocks to hit a takeover. Kiana fights up, fans rally, and Kiana headscissors. Kelani kicks and kicks but Kiana keeps her down. Kelani moves around, handstands and pops free to then get a headlock again! Kiana kicks around, fights up, and pries fere, but only for a moment. Kelani grinds the headlock, Kiana pries it open, repeat. Kiana pulls hair! Kiana gets the headlock while the ref reprimands and fans boo. Kelani powers out but Kiana runs her over. Things speed up, Kelani drops, hurdles, then rolls back! Kiana rolls over but Kelani runs in, but Kiana blocks the slingshot arm-drag!

Kiana drags Kelani up, but Kelani springboards to arm-drag after all! Kiana bails out, fans fire up, and Kelani slingshots to RANA! Fans fire up with Kelani and she hurries to get Kiana up. Kelani puts Kiana in, but Kiana rolls all the way back out. Kelani storms up but Kiana trips her! Kiana drags Kelani out but Kelani smacks Kiana off the apron! So Kiana ALLEY-OOPS Kelani off the desk! Fans boo but Kiana grins as NXT goes picture in picture.

Kiana drags Kelani up, SMACKS her off the desk, and soaks up the heat. Kiana drags Kelani up to SMACK her off the desk again! The ref’s ring count is climbing so Kiana puts Kelani in and covers, TWO! Kiana is annoyed but she focuses on Kelani. Kiana CLUBS her around, runs in to KNEE her down, and then storms up to stomp away in the corner. Kelani crawls but Kiana hauls her up for another KNEE! Kiana runs, to BOOT Kelani down! Cover, TWO! Kiana seethes but the fans rally behind Kelani. Kiana storms up, drags her up, but Kiana throws body shots. Kiana fires hands, whips, but Kiana KICKS her and CLOBBERS her!

Kiana CLUBs away on Kelani, cover, TWO! Kiana grows frustrated, and she storms up on Kelani again. Kiana HIP DROPS Kelani down, and Kelani flounders to ropes. Kiana CHOKES Kelani, the ref counts, but Kiana lets off. Kelani sputters, Kiana drags her up again and throws her by her hair! Kiana pushes Kelani to a cover, TWO! Kiana clamps on with a chinlock and she grinds Kelani down. Kelani endures, fights up, but Kiana wrangles her back down! Kelani still fights, the fans rally up more, and she fights to her feet again. JAWBREAKER! Kiana staggers away, Kelani goes back to ropes. Kiana runs in, but Kelani CLOBBERS her!

NXT returns to single picture as Kelani starts to rally! Cartwheel back elbow! And a kip up! Fans fire up again and Kelani SOMERSAULT LEG DROPS! Cover, TWO! Kelani drags Kiana up, hooks her up, but Kiana slips free to SPINEBUSTER! High stack, TWO!! Kiana can’t believe it, and she storms up on Kelani again.

Kelani ROCKS Kiana and fans rally up! Kiana ROCKS Kelani, but Kelani kicks and hooks, OVERDRIVE! Cover, TWO!!

Kiana survives and Kelani grows frustrated. Fans rally, Kelani watches Kiana go to a corner, and Kelani storms up to fire off body shots! Kelani hoists Kiana up top, climbs up after her, and fans fire up as she brings Kiana up. Kiana fights the superplex with body shots! Kiana throat chops and Kelani falls back! Kiana runs in, 401K!!! But she’s not done, she- Wait, the bell is ringing? Roxie did it! Kiana is furious but then Kelani EDDY GORDO KICKS! Kelani goes up and up, SPLIT LEG MOONSAULT! Cover, KELANI WINS!

Winner: Kelani Jordan, by pinfall (advances to NXT Deadline)

Karma bites Kiana in the butt as Roxanne Perez returns the favor for the screw job! Now neither is going back to the Iron Survivor Challenge! Will Deadline be Kelani’s own breakout moment?

 

The Alpha Academy speaks.

Chad Gable tells Meta Four that last week, they saw how close Gable was to taking the Heritage Cup home to the trophy case. Akira Tozawa points out Noam Dar DID tap out, the world saw it! Gable says that is right, but rules are rules, it was after the bell. Maxxine says regardless of all that, she wants to get her hands on Meta Four, and especially that Lash Legend! Otis agrees there. Okay, Otis, easy now. But Meta Four is riding high with Dar still champion and Lash going to Deadline. But they’re nothing but a bunch of SAVAGES! IDIOTS! SAVAGES! IDIOTS! And the Academy will prove it!

The Academy will prove Meta Four doesn’t have the style, the strength or the spirit! Next week, Mixed Six Tag! No rules, rounds or interference, and the Academy wants an answer by the end of tonight. A THANK YEW~! Will Dar, Oro and their leading ladies step up? Or will they for once be silent?

 

NXT Anonymous posts a video.

Wait, October 17th, 2023? The night Trick Williams was attacked? Lexis King is lurking, but also on his phone. King stalks Trick through the halls, but we don’t actually see the attack. Is this confirmation that King did attack Trick? Or just a red herring?

 

NXT holds a press conference.

Jacy Jayne and Thea Hail are already on stage as Andre Chase steps in. And we even see Tony’s cousin, Adriana… Chase steps to the podium and says, “Good evening, everyone. Thank you for joining us this evening. My name is Andre Chase, and I’m the founder of Andre Chase University. Before I address this situation, I would first like to thank the investigators for their communication, cooperation, and professionalism throughout this investigation.” Chase also wants to recognize the student body, faculty and staff for carrying on the day-to-day operations and curriculum. “Without the support of the Chase U family, I’m not sure I’m standing here right now.”

As we all know, this is a moment in time that is historic for NXT. And while he wishes we were all here under different circumstances, he just wants to address the news that broke last week about ACU being under investigation. He wants to be as forthcoming and honest as he can be, but understand that this is still an ongoing investigation, so he is limited in what he can share. That said, Chase knows the ACU has found itself in a difficult situation. There are suspicious and illegal activities, such as gambling–glance at Duke Hudson–and the misuse of university funds, which has landed the university into severe debt.

Unfortunately, he stands here today to tell us that this is all true. As the head of ACU, he takes full responsibility for what has put this university that he loves so much into debt. He will work arduously to pay back these obligations and restore Chase U to what it is: an institution that shapes young minds and future sports entertainers. That is all he can share, but he will open the floor to questions. Then how much do they owe, and to who? The amount is not important, but it is significant. What is important is paying it back to restore university activities.

Does he have any ideas how these activities leaked to the public? He has his suspicions, but he cannot speculate at this time. Next question. Is there something he would like to say to the student body? “If this situation isn’t taken care of, everything that we’ve built at Chase U is in jeopardy. As for the student body, I want to publicly apologize to each and every one of you, because my irresponsibility caused this. I will address the students of Chase U at the next assembly. No further questions, thank you for your time.” Chase heads out, the others following. Just what is going to happen to Chase U now that the world knows?

 

Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge Qualifier: Bron Breakker VS Eddy Thorpe!

The Badass is #MeanerThanEvil, but he’s also The King’s number one pick. Will he prove that Deadline is his yard? Or will the Alpha Wolf finally have his own breakout moment?

The bell rings and Bron grins as he sees Eddy’s taped up ribs. Eddy throws some kicks but Bron stays up. They keep circling, fans rally behind Eddy, and the two tie up. Eddy wrenches, wristlocks, but Bron shoves him away. Bron and Eddy reset, tie up, and Eddy waistlocks to a headlock. Eddy wrenches, but Bron scoops to SLAM! Eddy writhes, fans bark, and the two reset again. Bron shoots in, waistlocks, and SLAMS, to then float to a facelock. Bron gator rolls, rolls some more, then he drags Eddy up to suplex. Eddy knees free, waistlocks, but Bron bucks the O’Conner. Eddy dodges the clothesline to DROPKICK!

Fans fire up as Bron bails out, and Eddy eggs him on. Bron returns, Eddy sidesteps, hurdles, and CROSSBODIES, but into a POWERSLAM! Fans bark with Bron and he watches Eddy bail out. Bron waits for Eddy, then runs to BLAST Eddy off the apron! Bron goes out to then whip Eddy into barriers! Eddy writhes, fans are torn, but Bron mocks the bad ribs as he stands over Eddy. The ref starts the ring count, so Bron drags Eddy up. Bron puts Eddy into the ring, Eddy throws hands, but Bron knees low! Bron puts Eddy in a corner, RAMS into Eddy again and again, and fans are torn again. Bron hoists Eddy up top but Eddy fires hands!

Bron ROCKS Eddy, then runs up to jump, but Eddy shoves himaw ay! CROSSBODY! But Eddy can’t cover from the pain in his ribs! Fans rally for Eddy as he CHOPS, CHOPS and reels Bron in. But the ribs won’t let him suplex! Bron fireman’s carries Eddy, to GUTBUSTER DROP! Cover, TWO! Eddy hangs tough as NXT goes picture in picture.

Bron huffs and puffs and he CLUBS the bad ribs! Bron rips at the tape, then stomps Eddy down! Eddy crawls, Bron stalks him, and Bron drags Eddy up. Eddy fires forearms! But Bron scoops to a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Bron does push-ups to show he’s got energy to spare, and he storms up on Eddy. Eddy RAMS into Bron with a shoulder! Eddy fires forearms, then CHOPS! Bron just TACKLES Eddy down! Bron rains down forearms, taunts Eddy, and then bends him back against his knee! Eddy endures the modified Bow ‘n’ Arrow, so Bron KNEES him in the back! Bron bends Eddy more, but Eddy still endures.

Bron KNEES Eddy again, then really pulls on the Bow ‘n’ Arrow. Eddy continues to endure, and he fights his way through the hold. Eddy throws body shots but Bron KNEES low! Bron snap suplexes, covers, TWO! Eddy is still in this but Bron drags him up. Eddy fights the lift so Bron CLUBS him! Bron whips, to CLUB Eddy again! Eddy hobbles, Bron whips him again, and another CLUB on the back! Bron then lifts for a torture rack! NXT returns to single picture as Eddy endures and fans rally up. Bron bends Eddy, but Eddy slips around, sunset flip! TWO, and Eddy dodges a clothesline to CROSSBODY!

Bron throws elbows, he fireman’s carries, but Eddy slips free and shoves, SNAP GERMAN! But Bron brings down the straps to SPEAR!! Cover, Bron wins!

Winner: Bron Breakker, by pinfall (advances to NXT Deadline)

Just as the fire of Eddy’s fighting spirit was growing, Bron snuffs it out! Bron is headed to the Iron Survivor Challenge, will he make the numbers spell disaster for the rest of the field?

 

Trick Williams is seething.

Melo walks in and asks if Trick saw the NXT Anon video. Yeah, he did! Lexis King is a punk! Melo knew it was that guy! That weirdo following Trick, attacking him, putting all this unnecessary smoke between them! And it was all from behind! And he cost Melo his spot in Iron Survivor! But they’ll get their lick back. Tonight, King’s got a match, so these two are gonna make him pay for messing with the hottest duo in NXT. Is Trick with him? Trick says there’s nothing he wants more to knock King out. It’s what he deserves for keeping Trick down.

But Trick also has to be smart. The Iron Survivor Challenge is in less than two weeks. Nothing or no one is gonna distract him from taking what is his. King will get his. But for now, Trick will keep his eyes on the prize. Melo doesn’t have no prize, because King took that from him. Yeah, but Trick Melo Gang is better than that now! They don’t need to do distraction tactics or jump people from behind. They’re past that now. Melo asks, “We are?” Trick says, “Yeah, we are.” Melo agrees. “Yeah. We are.” They shake hands, and they know King will get his. But when and where will that be?

 

Roxanne Perez storms into the Women’s Locker Room.

And she says that if she isn’t gonna be in the Iron Survivor Challenge, sure as hell Kiana James will. Actually, Ava Raine was talking with HBK, and he said there’s gonna be a Last Chance Match. Wait, really? Yeah, men and women. Those who didn’t qualify get one last shot at getting in. Well, okay then, Roxie still has a chance. Izzi Dame says “Uh, yeah, sure.” But y’know who else has a last chance? Kiana James. So this desperate move just took Roxie from a last chance to no chance! And then Izzi pie faces Roxie! Roxie DECK Izzi! The others get Roxie off Izzi but Kiana CLOBBERS Roxie! Things are getting wild, who wins their way into that final final spot?

 

Ilja Dragunov VS Nathan Frazer!

The Mad Dragon was even angrier after the Jersey Island Rocket simply spoke on the truth, superficial though it may be. But will Dragunov show that his passion runs deeper than the oceans as he prepares to sink Baron Corbin’s ship?

NXT returns as Frazer makes his entrance. The bell rings, and Dragunov BOOTS Frazer down! Fans fire up as Dragunov stomps away on Frazer! Then he rains down forearm after forearm! Dragunov lets off to stand Frazer up and bump him off buckles. Then Dragunov CHOPS Frazer down! Fans fire up again as Dragunov bumps Frazer off more buckles, and CHOPS him again! Dragunov hauls Frazer up, whips him corner to corner hard, then runs in. Frazer BOOTS Dragunov, but Dragunov CHOPS back! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! And MACHINE GUN CHOPS! Frazer sits down, Dragunov CHOPS him one more time!

NXT!” as Dragunov goes to a corner. Frazer runs in, and he CHOPS! Dragunov goes to another corner, so Frazer CHOPS again! Frazer whips corner to corner, Dragunov reverses but Frazer dodges to GAMANGIRI! And then Frazer springboards to MISSILE DROPKICK! Both men are down and the fans are thunderous again! Dragunov and Frazer stir, rise up, and Frazer hauls Dragunov up. Dragunov fights the suplex, wrenches and ROCKS Frazer, to then CHOP him on the back!

Dragunov GERMAN SUPLEXES, but Frazer lands on his feet! Frazer dodges Dragunov, Dragunov dodges back, CONSTANTINE- NO, Frazer dodges to QUEBRADA DDT! Cover, TWO!! Dragunov survives but Frazer goes up! PHOENIX FLOP as Dragunov moves! ENZIGURI, and then a POWERBOMB!! And then the H-BOMB FOREARM!! Cover, TWO because Dragunov lets off?!? H-BOMB FOREARM!! Fans want that “One More Time!” so Dragunov obliges. He powers up to JUMPING H-BOMB FOREARM!!! Cover, Dragunov wins!

Winner: Ilja Dragunov, by pinfall

The NXT Champion unleashed fury like we’ve never seen, and this was on a “friend” who simply spoke his mind. Corbin’s the one stoking the flames, is he going to be the one that gets burned?

Speaking of Corbin, he’s on the tron! He figured he’d make this easier by talking to Dragunov through a screen. That’s how he talks to his family back home, right? Corbin could makes this warm and fuzzy, but Dragunov is the one breathing fire. Look what he just did to a guy he used to call a friend! Dragunov beat the hell out of Frazer all because he said Corbin’s life is better. And the fact is, it is! The only reason Dragunov has to be here is that title on his shoulder, and that title is the one thing Corbin happens to be missing in his life. So at Deadline, Corbin takes the title from Dragunov, and Dragunov will have nothing.

But Corbin, he’ll truly have it all. Dragunov can take his nothing back home to his family, and Corbin will even upgrade Dragunov to first class as an early Christmas gift. Corbin chuckles and sees Dragunov is ready right now. But just wait. Next week, they will be face to face. So enjoy your lonely nights, champ. Corbin smiles, but will he be the one getting nothing for Christmas?

 

Backstage interview with Lyra Valkyria.

McKenzie Mitchell is with the NXT Women’s Champion and congratulates her on the hard fought win over Xia Li. What is next? Well, Deadline, of course! Whoever wins the Iron Survivor Challenge is next in line. There’s Tiffany Stratton, one of the favorites. There’s Lash Legend, who Lyra only measures up to her leg. Then there’s Kelani Jordan now, who is rising up quicker than just about any woman in NXT History. And of course, there’s Blair Davenport. A very dangerous woman, especially if you meet her in the parking lot at night. And now, it’ll be whoever wins the Last Chance Match. Either way, Deadline will be-

Fallon walks over and says that next week, she’s gonna make the most of that Last Chance. And it won’t matter if Fallon enters first or last, she vows to leave Deadline as THE Iron Survivor. Which means the next person Lyra faces will be the #TopShelf of NXT. Oh, Fallon is someone Lyra has never doubted. If Fallon wins, this is a match Lyra looks forward to. But then Tatum Paxley is creeping up behind. It doesn’t matter if Fallon wins, because Lyra will just beat her anyways. Um, is Tatum with Lyra? Nope. But good luck. Thanks! They head out, Tatum waves bye, who makes it in just before the Deadline?

 

Karmen Petrovic speaks.

“In Martial Arts, we’re taught not to think, but to feel. To have a clear and calm mind and be ready to act, you must trust your instincts. And my instinct is that Arianna Grace believes she’s better than everybody else. She never shuts up and makes everything about herself. Arianna may be a decorated beauty queen, but I’m a decorated third degree blackbelt in Karate. And when it’s time to step through those ropes, it’s not about handwaving and sequined gowns, it’s about competition. And with my name repeatedly coming out of Arianna’s mouth, I think it’s time I kicked that mouth shut.” Karmen gets her chance, will she humble the self-proclaimed Miss NXT?

 

Meta Four speaks.

Noam Dar says “Hello, hello, hello. Alpha Academy, you dafties! You’re out here, making demands of us?” Jakara says they’re all crying because they lost. AND STILL, cuz no one is taking this cup from Dar. Dar has gone from the greatest sports entertainer to the purest form of energy! Dar says that’s why Oro is his main man. And Gable, you did run Dar close. But Dar is solid beyond belief! Dar survived because he IS a survivor! And he will be the next Iron Survivor. Just another reason why Meta Four is better than Alpha Academy. The fashion, the passion, the action! And nothing would make them happier than beating a team as world-renowned and beloved as the Academy!

So then, Mr. Gable, Dar, Oro & Lash will see them next week. What a great way to warm-up for Deadline! Challenge accepted, but will the Scottish Supernova and his crew really have that easy of a time against all of the Alpha Academy?

 

Joe Gacy speaks.

“Do you even care about me? Or am I jut a quick moment of thought before you moved on, forgetting that I existed? There are people in this world that think that I’m beneath them, that I’m lower than them. So I decided that I needed to get a better perspective.” Wait, he’s under the ring when he filmed this? Gacy wishes he could refrain from caring what other people’s opinions are, or how it is going up there. If this will be a successful victory or agonizing defeat. He knocks on the wood and says good luck up there.

Being beneath them is where he’s wanted, and this internal struggle, this new perspective, is something that he is dealing with. But it is hard. So, so hard. And he wouldn’t wish it on his worse enemy, whoever they are. And maybe he knows who that is, but then again, maybe he doesn’t.

 

Karmen Petrovic VS Arianna Grace!

Two women who are pretty much complete opposites finally have it out in the ring! Will Karmen prove her blackbelt trumps Arianna’s sash and tiara? Or will she just have to learn to lose with Grace?

But wait, Gacy gets out from under the ring!? And he takes the ring bell!? What was the point of that?! NXT goes to break while they try to sort this out!

The ref keeps the two apart, they pull hair, and then Arianna claws Karmen’s eyes!! Arianna fireman’s carries, WASTELAND SLAM! Cover, Arianna wins!

Winner: Arianna Grace, by pinfall

Gacy rings the bell!! The hecc?! But point is, the Beauty Queen is clearly willing to do anything she has to in order to win. Will she do exactly that to make her way to the top of NXT?

 

Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie is with the Cardiac Kid just moments away from the Fatal 4 Way with him and three other decorated former North American Champions. Wes agrees, this is a big night. They say the man defines the title, not the other way around, but something about the North American title… Wes is attached. It made him! That’s why he has to be the one to win and take that title off Dominik Mysterio. But before he gets there, he has Bronson Reed who floats like a butterfly and hits like a truck, Cameron Grimes who always has a trick up his sleeve, and then one of the greatest in NXT history, Johnny Gargano.

The odds are definitely against Wes, but Dom knows that Wes is willing to do anything to have a chance. Then what if he doesn’t win? He can never challenge Dom again! Well, high risk, high reward. McKenzie wishes him luck but Wes says it’s not about luck, it’s about desire. Wes heads out, but will he make it through to Deadline?

Winner: Wes Lee, by pinfall (NEW #1 Contender to the NXT North American Champion)

Dom is upset that his plan didn’t work out. But for all his big talk, will Dom have to put up or shut up against Wes at Deadline? Are Dirty Dom’s days as champion numbered?

 

Wait, there’s a fight in the parking lot!

It’s Roxie and Kiana! They didn’t wanna stop with the locker room! Security has to rush out there to stop them, Roxie gets Kiana down on the ground! NXT has to wrap, but will this fight not end until next week’s Last Chance Qualifier?


My Thoughts:

A great NXT here, great build towards Deadline, and just an awesome main event there. I figured Wes would find a way but I do appreciate Ivar showed up to screw over Bronson. Dom also made a good point to clarify, this was all about Wes winning and Dom could just coast if Wes lost. Dom VS Wes is going to be a great match that could steal the show because of the story. Wes should win, and I would hope HBK plans ahead and bans Judgment Day from ringside. Pro-wrestling promotions really should do that, because how many times in how many years have all the Heel factions out there done that? It’d be a great use of meta self-awareness.

Great tag title match to open, but I’m a little confused as to why Garza & Carrillo repackaged themselves if they’re not tag champs by now. I get that it’s about an attitude change, but c’mon, they’ve lost more than they’ve won even with it. Maybe they should go back to main roster to be Santos Escobar’s new Legado Del Fantasma henchmen, since they’re all multi-generational luchadores. Very good promos from Alpha Academy and Meta Four to set up the Mixed Six, maybe Oro takes the pin so that neither Dar or Lash are hurt going into Deadline. Still would love to see Otis get his shot at the Cup, but I guess we’ll wait and see.

Great choices for the Iron Survivor qualifiers here, with Eddy showing a lot of heart in his loss to Bron, and then Roxie screwing Kiana over. Izzi should know from past examples not to piss Roxie off, but great brawl both in the locker room and to close the show from Kiana and Roxie. They’re definitely going to cancel out in the Last Chance Match, and given the interaction of Fallon and Lyra, it feels like Fallon manages to get in. Not sure her chances of winning, or why Tatum had to insert herself, but something could be brewing there one way or another. And good match from Karmen VS Arianna, with a good cheat win from Arianna, but what was up with Gacy?

Gacy had a great promo last time, but this one was a bit odd. That and impulsively grabbing the bell… Well, grabbing the bell was actually rather clever, I kinda wish we got a promo where he wasn’t under the ring, and then he still took the bell. But something about this feels like Gacy’s trying a little too hard to be Early 2000s depressed teen stereotype. Lexis King is also trying really hard to get a lot of heat, but he and Jensen had a great match. Trick Melo Gang also had a good promo, and then I’m intrigued by Melo going back on his word of not interfering. That with the NXT Anonymous video, perhaps Melo and King conspired to screw over Trick, and now Melo is having to help King win or he’ll use the truth against him.

And wow, what a wild match from Dragunov VS Frazer. I get that Frazer was just trying to say Corbin’s “glamorous” life is the dream and that it doesn’t take anything away from Dragunov’s “sacrifices,” and then Corbin has a point, Dragunov went nuts on a friend. But given this is how wild Dragunov went on a friend, I really hope he just destroys Corbin at Deadline. Well, maybe not, that’d be rough for Corbin. But Dragunov and Corbin are going to bring it, it’s going to be awesome, can’t wait to see it.

My Score: 8.9/10

Winner: “Powerhouse” Will Hobbs, by pinfall

All that damage done to Hobbs and he still took the win! Is there no stopping the Don Callis Family with the Powerhouse behind it?

 

The Blackpool Combat Club speaks.

Jon Moxley is with Claudio Castagnoli as he shares a story. “When Claudio first comes to America, he shows up at the gym to train with William Regal and Dave Taylor. When Dave pulls up, Claudio’s sitting on the front step, there’s no cars around. Dave says, ‘How’d you get here?’ Claudio says, ‘I walked.’ Dave says, ‘From the airport? 20+ miles?’ Claudio says, ‘Yeah.'” That was day one. You think 20 minutes is a lot to Claudio? It’s nothing, he’s a freak. Moxley is a freak in a different way, needing to get hit in the face a couple times just to wake up. And while Moxley’s not a sprinter, he can run all day and all night.

You will never win a war of attrition with the BCC. When it’s a game of who can endure, you have no chance. But the BCC don’t get paid by the hour and they don’t wanna wrestle like they do. So time limit draws for them are unsatisfactory. So congrats, FTR, you pissed them off! Good job. But if you wanna challenge them for Revolution, you wanna pay homage to tag team wrestling in one of the wrestling Meccas, Greensboro, North Carolina, they accept. The four of them will show the world that all that history is just that. This is 2024, this is AEW, the BCC are the elite of the elite, and this sport evolves.

Claudio, what’s Moxley thinking of right now? Well, tag team wrestling, Midnight Express, Rock ‘n’ Roll Express, Arn ‘n’ Tully, Crockett Promotions, its entire history. And about FTR, how they look to the past, how they wanna bring back the past. The BCC looks to the future. The BCC creates the style and the wrestling that they wanna see today. So FTR, if you wanna live in the past, fine. But if you wanna step into the future, that path is through them! And all you have to do is just be better than Moxley & Claudio.

Moxley also keeps thinking, that can’t be all that FTR had. Because it feels like they unloaded all their heavy artillery, every magazine, while the BCC barely pulled the trigger. If FTR want to be big names in Greensboro, then they’ll have to swim in deep, deep waters. Claudio tells FTR to bring the whole bag of tricks, because they’ll need it. The match is set, but just how far will both teams go to settle the score?

BCC said FTR live in the past, but they used an old school finisher to win! Cash gets the mic now as the fans chant for FTR, and Cash says, “So a few weeks ago, Jon Moxley said, ‘Step up, and get stepped on.'” The fans boo that, but Cash tells Moxley, FTR is like a couple roaches. It’ll take much more than getting stepped to kill them! The fans cheer that! So that said, if BCC has anything more to say, they know where FTR’s gonna be. Dax tells Moxley & Claudio that he heard everything they had to say. They talked about differing styles and different eras, how FTR are throwbacks and the past is what they care about.

“That’s not what this is about. Moxley, you’ve been here since almost the beginning. For almost five years, you’ve been the king of AEW. This is your castle! This is your house, Mox! And I see you, Mox. And I see Claudio, and I see Bryan. I see you walk around the back, and people cower and they fear and they drop their eyes because they’re afraid of you. I think the reason you’re pissed off is you found a couple guys who ain’t scared of you.” The fans cheer that, too! FTR ain’t scared. But if Moxley is the king and this is his castle, it’s been said that to be a king, you gotta kill a king. So Revolution, FTR comes for the king’s head. #TopGuysOut!

The fans fire up as Dax & Cash are ready to be more elite than the elite of the elite! Will either team be left standing after the Revolution?

Backstage interview with Kris Statlander, Willow Nightingale & Stokely Hathaway.

Renee Paquette is with The Galaxy’s Greatest, The Babe with the Power and #BigStoke, bringing up the “choice words” from Skye Blue & Julia Hart last night on Rampage. What is their reaction? Stokely wants to start by saying he doesn’t appreciate that hostility. What happened last week, he apologized for. Did he put it on social media at like 3AM and then delete it five minutes later? Absolutely! But the past is the past. Stat said it best, they worry about the future, and that includes those two- Willow says think before you speak, Stokely. “Ho…ly cow, you got something to say.”

And Kris points out Skye is always looking for a fight, so maybe, since they’re 1-1, they go 1v1 next week and Kris beats dat ass. This eclectic trio is ready to fight it out, but will they be able to tear down The House of Black?

Backstage interview with Bryan Danielson.

Lexi Nair is with the American Dragon ahead of his main event match tonight against Jun Akiyama. Some consider this a dream match. Bryan says yes, but what Lexi didn’t say and should’ve said is that this the legendary Jun Akiyama. This is a man Bryan respects as one of the greatest wrestlers in history! Someone who is Eddie Kingston’s hero! And Eddie will be on commentary tonight, watching Bryan wrestle one of the greatest wrestlers, and beat him. Bryan vows to defeat the man that is Eddie’s hero. Bryan wants to make it clear, he respects Jun Akiyama and every single thing he has done. But do you know who Bryan does NOT respect? Eddie Kingston.

Bryan says Eddie just made this thing, that their match at Revolution is about a handshake. That if Eddie wins, Bryan has to shake Eddie’s hand and show him respect, and he thinks that’ll kill Bryan inside. And maybe it will. Because Bryan does NOT respect Eddie, and do you know why? Because if Eddie was asked to do a promo, do you know how he’d do it? Lexi’s interviewed him, right? And what would he say? “Oh, the boom! Oh the lights! Oh, you’ve got shoes on! Oh!” Then he’d say this, that and whatever, storm off and that’s it. He is NOT a professional, has NEVER been a professional!

Bryan has known Eddie for 20 YEARS, and Eddie is someone who had more potential than anybody Bryan has ever met, and he WASTED it! WASTED it until just this last year! But not only does Bryan not respect Eddie, Eddie’s waste of potential just pisses Bryan off. That is why Bryan will win against Eddie at Revolution for the Continental Triple Crown. The American Dragon wants to destroy the Mad King, but will he start with the Japanese legend?

The BCC beats Eddie down, but then here comes FTR! Cash & Dax brawl with Claudio & Bryan! The fans fire up as FTR runs the BCC off! BREAKING NEWS via Tony Schiavone! Wednesday Night Dynamite, Six Man Tag: FTR & Eddie VS Bryan, Claudio & Moxley! Will the Top Guys and Mad King finally beat some respect into the BCC?


My Thoughts:

A really good Collision here, lots of good story build for both Revolution and just in general. Great opening match with the No Disqualification match, but I’m surprised Hobbs won after all the stuff Sammy was doing. I mean, that’s good for Hobbs, he really should be winning things. Maybe it’s also to build Hobbs up so that when the Don Callis Family ends up fighting Ospreay & Fletcher, Ospreay & Fletcher are made even bigger deals when they beat Hobbs & Takeshita. Good win for Rosa and really good win for Deeb, both are going strong at perhaps just the right time. Deeb also had a really good promo, both should definitely be challenging for titles after Revolution going towards Double or Nothing.

Great trios match for Bang Bang Scissor Gang, and of course there was a moment of dysfunction where White gets the tag and not Billy. BBSG still wins, but I’m more surprised by Caster losing the flow on his rap. If that was legit, I feel bad for him, but maybe he wrote himself into a corner with “red” and the rhymes being bad (something something head, something something dead). I mean, he did just say he and management argue, maybe he held himself back because he didn’t want Tony Khan upset over blatantly naughty rhymes. And also, despite me wanting them to actually go for more gold, it feels like we’re just a moment away from BBSG breaking up and fighting for all the trios titles.

Great match from Bryan Keith and Malakai Black for the hell of it, and it gives Malakai a solid singles win. When Malakai hasn’t had one of those in awhile, that’s only because he hasn’t had a singles match in a long time. A little surprising Mark Briscoe didn’t get away with his ambush. He could’ve just bailed out when Buddy & Brody showed up but I guess that wouldn’t be in-character for Mark. Maybe Keith will be an ally for Mark against The House of Black since FTR is a bit busy right now. Speaking of which, great tag match of FTR VS STP and of course FTR wins. Good promo from BCC to set up the rematch at Revolution, I feel like they should make a point that the time limit isn’t 20 minutes but I can’t even remember if PPVs have time limits on matches.

And great tie-in of BCC with the main event tonight. Bryan VS Jun was a great match, Eddie was great on commentary because he knew Jun’s moveset and style so he was saying what was coming. Bryan won, of course, adding another Triple Crown Champion to the list since he’s coming after Eddie’s Triple Crown. I had a feeling Bryan was going to disrespect Jun, but it was only because Jun told him to respect Eddie. Great brawl to set up Eddie & FTR VS BCC for Dynamite, that’ll make for a strong go-home going towards Revolution.

My Score: 8.7/10

The Rock has a message!

“Oh, I know, everybody wants to know what’s happening down in Perth, Australia. It’s gonna be this weekend, right? Is that right? Yeah, The Rock knows when it’s happening, y’know why? Because they kept asking The Rock, ‘Rock, will you go down to Perth? Will ya come down to Perth, Australia?’ Listen, The Rock can’t be there in Perth, he wishes he could be there in Perth, he’s gonna be there in spirit and that’s all that matters. The People’s Champ’s spirit is gonna be there in Perth. But here’s who else is gonna be there in Perth: Grayson Waller, doing the Waller Effect. It’s that show, it’s a big show.

“It’s a big show here in the states, and it’s an even bigger show down there in Australia? Y’know why? Y’know why, Dumbo? Because Australia is his country, it’s his home country, the people are gonna go crazy for him. But here’s what’s happening. Here’s the BS that’s happening now down in Australia. Cody Rhodes and his little girlfriend, Seth Rollins, are gonna go on the Waller Effect. Here’s the thing, I need you, and you, and this goof holding the camera and this one holding the microphone over here, I need all of you guys to make sure that Perth knows this some BS happening.

“And if those guys, meaning Cody and his little girlfriend, Seth, if they start talking trash, let The Rock know. Tell The Rock. Because here’s what’s gonna happen: The Rock is gonna slap the piss out of both of them, just like that. As a matter of fact, if those two talk trash, The Rock will fly down there to Perth before that interview is over and he’ll do it. Don’t wonder why The Rock can make it that quick, The Rock makes magic happen. Do you understand? All right, that’s all The Rock has to say about Perth. Perth, Australia, get ready because the WWE is coming. Let The Rock know if those two jabronies talk trash. IF YA SA-MELLLL~… what The Rock… is cooking.”

Goodbye~!” Dom is defiant, though, so Bate CLOBBERS him! But then Finn RAMS Dunne into Bate and rolls Dunne up, TWO!! Dunne escapes, but Finn SLINGBLADES!

The ref reprimands, Dunne lets off but Bate keeps going. Bate fires up, runs side to side and tags Dunne, GAMANGIRI! GAMANGIRI! Then DOUBLE GAMANGIRI!!

Priest then grabs each man, Finn tags in before DOUBLE SOUTH OF HEAVEN SLAMS!! Finn goes up, COUP DE GRACE on Dunne!! Judgment Day wins!!

Winners: The Judgment Day, by pinfall (still Undisputed WWE Tag Team Champions)

New Catch Republic came as close as any team has in taking these titles away from Finn & Priest, but they just couldn’t get past the numbers game! Will even WrestleMania 40 meet its Judgment Day?

 

Austin Theory is here?

“The 150 Million Hit Man” is in the ring on the set of the Grayson Waller Effect and he welcomes us to Austin Theory Live. The fans boo but Theory says, “G’day, mate!” He wants to talk to Australia about vegemite. It’s DISGUSTING! But that’s just a snack here, right? So then he had a real Australian meal. He had himself a Blooming Onion from Outback Steakhouse! Oh, they don’t like that? Well alright. Then he’ll introduce to us the Moment Maker, the Aussie Icon, Australia’s own, his boy, Grayson Waller! The fans cheer Waller as he makes his entrance, and he sees UFC fighter, Tai Tuivasa, in the crowd.

Waller walks up, they shake hands, and they both get the golden shoes for the Shoey! The fans cheer as Tai chugs it all down, then Waller joins Theory in the ring. Waller takes the mic to welcome us to the Grayson Waller Effect. The fans cheer, and Waller says this might be the greatest day of his life! And he wants us to do one thing before the greatest GWE of all time. “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” “Aussie!” “Oi!” “Aussie!” “Oi!” “Aussie Aussie Aussie!” “OI OI OI!” The fans cheer and Waller says time to get to it. The biggest story in sports entertainment involve his two guests tonight.

First, the World Heavyweight Champion, Seth FREAKIN’ Rollins! The fans cheer and sing along as the Visionary makes his entrance, wearing a suit that is purposefully baggy, and also has cords on it. Rollins revels in the singing, which bores Theory, but then Rollins takes a bow. Waller says his second guest is the winner of the 2024 Royal Rumble, “the man who can thank the ineffectiveness of the American education system for not being able to finish a story,” The American Nightmare, Cody Rhodes! Cody makes his entrance in a normal suit, and now fans sing with Cody’s song, “WHOA~ OH~!” Cody gets an extra big pyro as he gets in the ring!

Cody and Rollins sit with Waller while the fans chant for Cody. Cody asks Perth, “What do we wanna talk about?” Waller says hold on, this is his show. What HE wants to talk about is to acknowledge their Tribal Chief, Roman Reigns. The Tribal Chief appreciates that. But Rollins, Waller doesn’t care about who wins the Chamber, he wants to know who Rollins wants to face. Oh, well, the Chamber is stacked, who knows who wins, but he has a scoop. Oh? Here we go! Yeah, Rollins has an inside track, some secret info. Does Perth wanna know a secret? “YES!” Alright, then. Rollins… is just days away from being medically cleared to compete!

The fans like the sound of that! Rollins says whoever wins the Chamber will get a crack at Rollins’ World Heavyweight Champion. And newsflash: they don’t stand a chance. Because it’s WrestleMania 40, the biggest Mania of all time! The world is gonna sing Rollins’ song, “WHOA~ OHH~ OHHH~!” and Rollins will do what only Rollins can, put on a show like nobody else! Because he is a Visionary, he is a Revolutionary, he is SETH FREAKIN’ ROLLINS! Big pop. Rollins sits back down and Waller says cool story, bro.

Now, Cody, we had the opportunity to have the biggest Mania main event of all time: Roman Reigns VS The Rock. The fans boo and Rollins sticks out his tongue. Waller asks if Cody was being selfish taking that away from the fans. The fans chant “Rocky Sucks! Rocky Sucks!” Cody doesn’t want it twisted, he is a fan of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson. And if The Rock were here, The Rock would probably call Cody a candy ass, prattle on about rooty poo, insult Cody. What is it he calls Cody’s fans again? Waller knows, it’s Cody Crybabies. Theory claps and Cody says yes, Cody Crybabies.

But Cody wants to ask Perth: Are there any Cody Crybabies in here tonight? The fans cheer and Cody wants to double check, the pyro got to his hearing. Are there any Cody Crybabies in here tonight? The fans cheer even louder! Rollins says yes, seems there are. The fans chant for Cody again, and Cody says one thing The Rock wouldn’t wanna talk about is the conversation that led them to this point, why Cody was going to step away from that WrestleMania main event just to step right back in. Waller says hold on, he’s talking about The People’s Champion! Cody does what he’s told. Oh, People’s Champion?

That is a grand and lofty title, one you can’t self-appoint. Maybe at one point, The Rock was The People’s Champ. But to Cody, to be the People’s Champ, you have to actually be around the people! The fans cheer that, and Cody says that while Seth had an announcement, here’s one from Cody. Cody tells The Rock that he indeed slapped Cody across the face. And at WrestleMania 40, Cody faces Roman in the main event. But until then, the card is wide open! So let’s make it official! Cody wants The Rock 1v1, any time, any place!! The fans fire up for that and Rollins stands up to stand with Cody. Fans chant “YES! YES! YES!”

Rollins tells Cody and Perth, let’s cut the head off the snake once and for all! Rollins admires that challenge, but when it comes to The Bloodline, we all know that there is no such thing as 1v1. So if and when The Rock decides to take Cody up on this challenge, just know that Cody won’t be fighting that battle alone. Waller says there you have it! Another scoop on the Grayson Waller Effect, the greatest talk show in WWE! Theory says hold on there. Cody thinks he’s gonna face The Rock? Is that what you think? IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT YOU THINK! Rollins laughs at Theory’s pretty decent Rock imitation.

Yeah, it was good, but here’s more. Finally…! Austin Theory has come to Perth, Australia, to finish his story. Rollins laughs more and says this is good. But hey, does he have the big one? Y’know, the one. Jacket off, show ’em what it’s all about. Theory takes his jacket off, “IF YA SMELLLLL-” Rollins THROWS Theory into the Waller sign! CODY CUTTER! Waller is stunned as Theory is down and out! Waller says okay, fine, and he backs off. Rollins lines up the shot, to CURB STOMP Theory! The Visionary and the American Nightmare show they make a powerful combo, will they be just what the WWE Universe needs to finally The Bloodline’s tyranny?

 

World Heavyweight Championship #1 Contender’s Elimination Chamber Match: Randy Orton VS Drew McIntyre VS LA Knight VS Bobby Lashley VS Kevin Owens VS Logan Paul!

As the Visionary just said, he is 100% and ready for whoever comes out of this match! The Viper, the Scottish Terminator, the Mega Star, the All Mighty, the Prizefighter and the Maverick are just as ready, but who proves they are worthy by making it through the Chamber?

Kevin Owens makes his entrance first, followed by Lashley, Logan, and Orton! That leaves Drew McIntyre and LA Knight to start things off in a rematch from just last night on SmackDown.

But Lashley is there to RAM Kevin through a pod! Lashley aims at Logan now, and he SPEARS Logan through a pod!!! The fans lose their minds as Lashley rises up from the wreckage!

And he uses a chair to SMACK Knight again and again and again! The Phenomenal One isn’t letting The Mega Star win this match after keeping him out of it! The fans boo as Styles then takes the chair back from the refs, and puts Knight in a STYLES CLASH onto the chair! McIntyre crawls over to cover, McIntyre ELIMINATES Knight!!

Fans boo more, Styles just screwed Knight and the rest of the field benefits from it! But everyone else is still down, Orton clutching his back. Kevin and Logan find each other, and the fans fire up as they brawl it out! Kevin sends Logan into chains, then AOI SHODOU!!! Kevin leaves Logan behind to aim at McIntyre and Orton. Kevin runs to CANNONBALL McIntyre! CANNONBALL for Orton! Kevin goes up and aims, SWANTON BOMB for Orton!! Cover, TWO!! Orton stays in this despite the pain, but Kevin just goes back to Logan. Kevin stomps Logan down, goes up another corner, and he SWANTON BOMBS onto McIntyre’s knees!

Kevin sputters as McIntyre saves himself there. The ref checks everyone, they’re all okay to continue, and the fans rally back up. Logan sits up and fans boo. McIntyre also stands, he aims at Kevin and has his own countdown. “THREE! TWO! ONE!” CLAY- NO, POP-UP POWERBOMB instead!! But Logan runs u! Logan avoids a kick, Kevin avoids a haymaker, STUNNER!! Logan tumbles away, Orton goes after Kevin. No RKO, Kevin SUPERKICKS instead! Kevin whips, POP-UP- NO, Orton slips free! RKO!!! Orton crawls to cover, Orton ELIMINATES Kevin! Orton writhes from the bad back but he’s still one of the final three.

McIntyre crawls to the chains, Logan is also on the outer platform, and Orton stands up in the ring. McIntyre storms into the ring, glaring at both targets. McIntyre locks onto Orton and Orton locks onto McIntyre. Orton hobbles with the bad back, but he still stands tall to stare McIntyre down. They start throwing hands and the fans fire up!

The ImPAULsive Influencer just influenced this match’s finish! He couldn’t let it go and had to knock Orton out! Will Logan have to watch his back for the Viper? As for McIntyre, he’s still going back to WrestleMania. Will he finally have his moment on the Grandest Stage of Them All?

 

Triple H is here!

The fans fire up as The Game stands in the ring, and he says, “I just wanted to come out here for a second to say thank you. On behalf of the WWE, on behalf of every superstar back there, thank you for inviting us into your home. Thank you for being great hosts. Thank you for this beautiful Optus Arena. It’s been a wonderful night. And I wanna let you know the attendance here tonight, the official attendance: 52,590!” The fans cheer that!

 

Women’s World Championship: Rhea Ripley VS Nia Jax!

Australia is Mami’s home, and this truly be the biggest moment in her career. However, that’s all the more motivation for the Irresistible Force to ruin it! Will the challenger A-Nia-late the champion? Or will the Eradicator still be the most dominant woman in the WWE?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who is truly on top!

The bell rings and the fans are thunderous already as Rhea stares Nia down. Rhea smiles as the fans are all behind her. Nia and Rhea circle, tie up, and are in a deadlock. They go around, Nia shoves Rhea away, and the fans boo. Rhea stays cool and she dodges Nia to kick, stomp a foot, and SMASH her off a knee! Rhea LARIATS but Nia stays up! Rhea CHOPS, CHOPS, and knuckle locks to go up and up and RANA! Nia staggers to a corner, Rhea DROPKICKS her in! The fans fire and Rhea brings Nia out, to pump handle! Nia elbows free of that and knocks Rhea down, then SENTONS!

Nia dribbles Rhea off the mat, puts her in a corner, and runs up to SPLASH! Nia keeps Rhea up so she can “smile” at the fans. Nia HEADBUTTS Rhea, tells her to kiss this, and then HIP ATTACKS!

Nia stomps Rhea, tells Rhea to say “Mommy,” but Rhea throws body shots! Nia HEADBUTTS Rhea down! Nia torture racks Rhea and bends her!

Fans boo as Nia marches around with Rhea on her back, but Rhea fights around! GUILLOTINE FACELOCK! The fans fire up as Rhea has Nia in the body scissors, too! But Nia powers up and out, only for Rhea to sunset flip! Nia stays up, but Rhea avoids the hip drop! Nia lands hard on her butt, and fans taunt her with “MY HOLE!” Nia stands Rhea up but Rhea fires off fast hands! Nia grabs on with both hands, but Rhea breaks free to knuckle lock and CHOP! And CHOP! And CHOP! Rhea then goes up and up and FLYING RANA, but Nia blocks that one! POWERBOMB! Deadlift, and POWERBOMB again!

Nia drags Rhea around, runs, for another leg drop, brother! Cover, TWO! Rhea survives and Nia grows frustrated. Nia looms over Rhea and brings her up.

The desk does not break, but maybe Rhea just broke! Nia goes up onto an armchair, to ELBOW DROP through the desk!!

Fans boo as Nia drags Rhea from the wreckage and into the ring. Rhea is in a drop zone, Nia goes up! A-NIA-LATOR!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Nia is shocked and the fans are electric! Nia runs to KICK Rhea in the side, then whips her to a corner. Nia RAMS into Rhea again and again, going after that bad back! Nia throws Rhea down and has her in the drop zone again.

That was the biggest Riptide ever, and it washes Nia away! With this win, Rhea not only proves she’s the most dominant woman in WWE, but she proves everything she’s done to get here was worth it! Mami gets her pyro and celebrates with her family, but will she have an even bigger moment at WrestleMania 40 facing down The Man?


My Thoughts:

An awesome Elimination Chamber with basically nothing bad to say. Great promo from The Rock that was featured in the Kickoff show, and great Grayson Waller Effect segment for Cody & Rollins to respond. Great beat down of Theory, too, that was fun. Really good Women’s Tag Team Championship match for the Kickoff, though it was clear The Kabuki Warriors were retaining. Indi at least got to perform in her home country, but I don’t feel she and Candice circle back to the titles in time for Mania. Another team probably steps up, or maybe multiple teams, and they’re the ones that face Asuka & Kairi.

Speaking of tag titles, awesome match from Priest & Finn VS “New Catch Republic.” That had some real NXT TakeOver vibes with the near falls and false finishes, but I figured Judgment Day was returning. Given the story with R-Truth, it just seems more fitting that The Awesome Truth steps up and wins big at Mania. And in case you missed it, Truth went to Austria instead of Australia, because he is a comedic genius. I am going to love all the shenanigans and misunderstands Truth has once he and Miz are the Undisputed Tag Team Champions.

Awesome stuff out of both Chamber matches tonight, though WWE always does pretty good with these in my experience. And even though it seemed a bit obvious to me that Becky and Drew were each running the gauntlet in the Chamber, I feel they did a better job disguising things in Drew winning than Becky. Tiffany eliminating Naomi was a good move, as she and Naomi can feud. Tiffany is new to main roster, Naomi has returned to WWE, a feud can help RawDown fans learn/relearn who they are while we get great acrobatic matches out of them. Liv and Bianca being in the final three with Becky also worked, they all have stories involving Rhea, a return to Mania, or both.

As for what Bianca does now without a clear path to Mania, I’m thinking she could get in on that tag title story. She has beef with DMG CTRL, and if Dakota really is on Bayley’s side, maybe Dakota and Bianca can be a team? Not saying they’d win, there’s a chance DMG CTRL makes everyone think Dakota’s still on their side, and that helps DMG CTRL retain, but it’d be good story. And in the Men’s Chamber, I did not expect Styles to screw Knight over like that, and I did not expect Logan to screw over Orton like that. Kevin was great wanting after Logan so badly, and I don’t think their story is over yet, but maybe they add Orton to the mix? A Triple Threat protects all three so that Logan can lose the belt while someone else takes the pin, or Logan is opportunistic and steals a pin to retain.

And of course, an awesome main event. Rhea of course won out but she and Nia did great, really made Rhea look like the underdog champ that then overcame her toughest challenge, and now she’s rolling towards that match with Becky. Both have done so well that Mami VS The Man could go either way, and I wouldn’t be surprised either way. They’re both worthy of the top title, so it really depends on who is set up for the Women’s World Championship for after Mania. Maybe Jade Cargill? That’d be quite the moment on whatever night of Mania to have Jade walk out there and confront the champion and set things up for Backlash in France.

My Score: 9/10
