NXT Heritage Cup Championship: Noam Dar w/ Meta Four VS Akira Tozawa w/ The Alpha Academy!

The Scottish Supernova ignored the Stamina Monster’s attempt at a challenge before, so Tozawa STOLE the cup out from under his nose! Dar and his crew went through the spookiest haunted house in NXT history, got the cup back, but had to give Tozawa this match in return. Will Tozawa say “ARIGATO~” by taking the cup fair and square this time? Or will the man who has linked himself to this championship still hold onto it?

The introductions are made, the cup is raised, and we see who raises a glass in celebration after tonight!

The bell rings on round one and the two circle. They feel things out, tie up, and Dar waistlocks to drag Tozawa down. Tozawa moves around, fights up and wrenches to a wristlock. Tozawa wrenches, Dar clinches and rolls to have a foot. Dar turns Tozawa over, facelocks, wrenches and ELBOW BREAKERS! Fans rally and duel as Tozawa rolls and trips Dar. Tozawa has a toehold but Dar pulls at the headband. The ref reprimands, Dar throws elbows, and he moves around, but Tozawa holds on to the foot! Dar rolls Tozawa to a cover, TWO! Dar puts Tozawa in a corner, the ref counts, and Tozawa avoids the cheap shot!

Fans fire up as Tozawa fires off fast hands! Dar goes to ropes, Tozawa whips but Dar reverses. Tozawa sunset flips, Dar stays up but Tozawa avoids the stomp and the kick to roll up! TWO, and Dar headlocks. We’re under 90 seconds but Tozawa powers out. Things speed up, Dar avoids the hurdle to sweep the leg! Fans boo and chant “YOU STILL SUCK!” Dar stomps Tozawa at the minute mark, then drags him up, but Tozawa suplexes first! Fans fire up while Tozawa stands, and he does his best Otis hip thrust! Tozawa runs in but Dar puts him on the apron. Tozawa GAMANGIRIS, then hurries up the corner!

We’re at 30 seconds as Tozawa reaches the top. But Meta Four distracts him! Tozawa hops down, and he looks at the cp. Dar goes out to grab Tozawa, but Tozawa hits a BIG back suplex! Ten seconds, Tozawa puts Dar in but goes up, and Dar gets him first! SUPERLEX at the bell!

Dar: 0; Tozawa: 0

Fans fire up while the teams argue, but then they go to help Dar and Tozawa refresh. The two stand back up and we start round two! Dar and Tozawa circle, Dar gives KICK and KICK but Tozawa blocks to trip him and fire off hands! Dar goes for an arm, Tozawa rolls to go for legs. Dar grapevines but Tozawa sits on it for a cover, TWO! Dar avoids the Penalty Kick, and rolls Tozawa up, with tights!! Dar scores!!

Dar: 1; Tozawa: 0

Tozawa protests the tight pulling, and then Dar DECKS him with a sucker punch!! As if fans weren’t booing before, Dar gets away with two cheats at once! The ref has to do all he can to keep Alpha Academy from attacking Meta Four, and NXT goes picture in picture!

Dar celebrates like he’s already won, but Gable and Maxxine help Tozawa get back into this. Tozawa stands up and he’s ready, here’s round three! But then Dar bails out of the ring! The ref reprimands and Tozawa is annoyed by these stall tactics. Seconds are ticking away but Tozawa goes out. The Meta Four is a wall in front of Dar, but then the Alpha Academy steps up. Otis is a wall unto himself! Lash talks trash on Otis, but Tozawa slips through to fire off on Dar! Tozawa puts Dar in, runs up and SHINING WIZARDS! Cover, TWO! Dar survives but Tozawa drags him back up to bump off buckles, and CHOP him in the corner!

Tozawa CHOPS again, whips corner to corner but Dar reverses. Dar runs in but into BOOTS! Tozawa goes up, but Dar sweeps the legs! Tozawa falls tot he mat, Dar taunts the Academy then covers, TWO! Dar is annoyed but we’re under 90 seconds already. Dar stomps Tozawa, drags him around and stomps an arm. Then he stomps the other arm! Dar flexes, taunts the fans, we’re at one minute and Dar drags Tozawa up. Dar KICKS, and KICKS, and KICKS! Tozawa falls, Dar covers, TWO! Dar is annoyed, Meta Four complains about the count, but then Dar digs his forearms in. Dar throws elbows, then clamps on a chinlock.

Tozawa fights up, fights around, but Dar wrangles him back down. Tozawa fights as we reach 15 seconds, runs, but into an UPPERCUT! Ten seconds, Dar runs into a BOOT! And a SUPERKICK! Dar fires off fists, Tozawa SOBATS, spins, slides under, and NXT returns to single picture as the round ends!

Dar: 1; Tozawa: 0

Dar still wants a sleeper! TRIANGLE HOLD! AND ELBOWS! The ref shouts, the fans boo, and the crews have to separate these two again. Dar gets away with even more than before, but the ref says he is on thin ice. A disqualification ends this automatically, but Dar seems fine with pushing the boundaries. The two men refresh, or as best as Tozawa can after all that nonsense. Round four begins and Dar rushes in! FLYING ELBOW! Fans boo but Dar reels Tozawa in for a NORTHERN LIGHTS! Dar aims from a corner, Tozawa rises, SLIDING LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Tozawa survives as Dar couldn’t gear up for his finishing kick.

Gable GERMAN SUPLEXES Oro! And Meta Four can only watch as Otis SPLASHES Oro down! Dar may leave with the cup now, but will he be able to survive much longer with his crew taking the hits for him?


NXT hears from Mick Foley!

“Hello, NXT! It’s the Hardcore Legend here, WWE Hall of Famer, Mick Foley, and I’m so excited because HBK, Shawn Michaels, has granted me the honor of selecting the qualifying matches this week for the Iron Survivor Challenge. Let’s start with the women. Now I’ve been watching the NXT Women’s Division for a long time, and it’s extremely strong. There are two of the top women I want to specifically talk about, Fallon Henley and Tiffany Stratton. Now their match last week never took place due to Tiffany’s attack, so I say we absolutely see that match this week, and we up the stakes just a wee bit, with the winner punching their ticket to Deadline.

“As far as the men, aw man. Two guys I have been watching a long time, long before any of you knew their names. Dijak, we thought this guy was a future champion. But in order to get to Deadline, Dijak will have to get past the guy I’ve known and followed since he was a teenager, The Big Strong Boi, Tyler Bate! It is going to be a great match-up of different styles, I can’t wait to see these matches. Until then, have a nice day.” Foley has given us an incredible card for the night, who will be the first ones into this year’s wild ride that is the Iron Survivor Challenge?


The NXT Women’s locker room talks about the Breakout tournament.

Karmen Petrovic and Arianna Grace commend Kelani Jordan on making it to the finals, but then in walk Elektra Lopez and the tournament’s winner, Lola Vice. Lola is pretty sure she made that tournament look super easy. Lopez says she makes everything look super easy, she’s been the best since day one. But everyone should be happy that they’ll be remembered in the footnotes of Lola’s success. Right, Kelani? Kelani says, “Whatever helps you sleep at night.” But Lola should really split that contract with Elektra, because without her, Lola wouldn’t have won. Arianna defuses the situation by saying they cannot change the past.

But Elektra tells everyone that what “we” do with the contract is none of Kelani’s business. Don’t be jealous that you lost, Kelani. Uh, what is there to be jealous of? Arianna says, “We only lose when we quit.” Lola says Kelani IS jealous. But in walks Roxanne Perez with a sarcastic slow clap. “Wow, NXT Breakout winner. Congrats. Doesn’t look like it’s gone to your head at all. Let me explain something to you, Lola. It’s one thing to win that, but it doesn’t automatically mean that you become champion. If I were you, I wouldn’t make enemies out of the entire locker room.” Lola tells Roxie off in Spanish but Roxie claps back.

Lola & Lopez leave and Kelani thanks Roxie for having her back. They also head out, and Arianna tries another platitude, but Karmen tells her to shut up already. Arianna scoffs at Karmen, but is the locker room just a powder keg waiting for the right spark?


Lyra Valkyria is here!

The fans fire up for the NEW NXT Women’s Champion, and The Morrigan is back after her week of media, including back home in Ireland! Lyra gets a mic to say, “Well, I never dreamed it could happen the way that it did, but… Lyra Valkyria is your NXT Women’s Champion!” Fans cheer and chant “You Deserve It!” Lyra says whoever it was that said you should never meet your heroes, they clearly never met Becky Lynch. Becky is a true legend. Fans cheer that, and Lyra says she didn’t just meet her hero, she BEAT her! She defeated an icon! And now the finest prize iN NXT is around Lyra’s waist.

At Halloween Havoc, Lyra brought it. Becky sure as hell did, too, but something Lyra will remember forever is that the fans made this place feel like magic. “And we showed the world what a main event women’s title match is all about!” Fans cheer that, too. Lyra says we’ve all seen her story, and every bit of it is true. But she knows she’s not the only woman that dreams of holding this title. And that the locker room is packed full of hungry competitors who want to take it from her! And she knows that- Wait, who is coming down the stands? Xia Li!? Security wants to stop her, she’s a Raw superstar still in trouble for knocking Becky Lynch out!

But Lyra says it’s okay? Let her through? The fans boo but Xia steps over the barriers and to the ring. Xia gets a mic, and Lyra asks if she can help her. Xia chuckles, and she tells Lyra, “Did you see what I did to ‘your hero,’ Becky Lynch, last night?” Yeah, we all saw that attack. All because Becky told Xia that if she wanted a title match, she should go and win one. Xia laughs that off, and tells Lyra, “Now, I plan to take yours!” Security gets in there to cool this off, but then Xia HEEL KICKS one in the face!! Fans boo while that guy tries to remember where he is, and Lyra says if Xia wants it, then come get it!

Fans fire up as the Morrigan looks ready to fight the menacing Exterminator! But will Lyra come to regret it when the Deadline approaches?


Tyler Bate speaks.

“I’m aware I come across chilled. Zen, if you will. But do not mistake my way of being for a lack of drive and intensity, because I am always pinpoint laser focused. Now Mick Foley, he put me in this match because he sees what I see. The Iron Survivor Challenge is exactly something the Big Strong Boi can sink his teeth into. In fact, it’s something I need, because I am tired of living on the resumé of the past. It’s time to write my future. Now yes, Dijak is massive. He hits like a heavyweight and moves like a cruiserweight. But this David has slain many a Goliath in the past, and tonight will be no different when I take Mr. Hard Justice himself for an Airplane Spin on my way to NXT Deadline. Namaste, boys and girls.”


Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen give Fallon Henley a pep talk.

It’s go time! Is she ready? Hell yeah! Because the games are over! She is getting in that Iron Survivor Challenge. Briggs says it’s about time one of them gets an opportunity again. Jensen asks if they’re needed out there, but Fallon says nope, she is locked in. Okay, then keep eyes on the back of your head, we all know Tiffany plays dirty. Fallon knows. But “Tiffy Time” is over! It’s Fallon Time now! Fist bumps for luck and Fallon heads out. Will the Cowgirl take the Wrestling Barbie for a rodeo ride she won’t get up from? Or will Tiffany again make herself the Center of the Universe?


The Alpha Academy regroups backstage.

Coach Gable reminds Tozawa that they knew this wasn’t gonna be easy. Shinsuke Nakamura last night, Noam Dar here tonight, that’s a tall order for anyone. Just listen to coach, okay? They’ll apply the Gable Method and unlock that full Tozawa potential. But coach! He wants it NOW! Maxxine says they know that, but don’t worry. Because next week, the Academy returns to NXT to be guests on the Supernova Sessions. Oh, really? Well, okay, A THANK- “What happened to you, Gable?” Drew Gulak and his crew walk over, and Gulak says Gable is a brilliant wrestler, a former NXT Tag Team Champion, and he chooses to be associated with this group?

Yes, this is his group. Well, Gulak leads a roster that exemplifies serious competition. Damon Kemp, disciplined. Myles Borne, tenacious. Charlie Dempsey, pedigree. Dempsey says the Heritage Cup should be off-limits to a group like the Alphas. They’ll stretch you all out and show no quarter! Stretch, huh? Well, Charlie, why don’t you show Otis how to stretch this? Otis shakes those hips and Gulak’s group says that’s disgusting! SHOOOOSH~! Shoosh, please. Gulak can’t stand that! Stand, huh? Well, Gulak, why don’t you stand across the ring from Otis tonight 1v1. Gulak says it’s on! Yeah, on and on and on!

The Alphas head out, Gulak and his group say they’ve got this, but then Gable adds one last, “A THANK YEW~!” Will the Philly Stretcher fail to fold up the tree trunk that is The Dozer?


Referee Adrian Butler finishes meeting with Shawn Michaels.

He thanks HBK for his time, and NXT Media asks him what that was about. Butler says that after much deliberation, HBK has instructed him to use his discretion during tonight’s match of Bron Breakker VS Von Wagner. With the history between those two, Mr. Michaels insists there be a definitive decision. So tonight, Butler promises there will be a winner. Wait, we see Ava Raine stepping into HBK’s office. What is her meeting with the NXT General Manager be about?


Women’s Iron Survivor Challenge Qualifier: Tiffany Stratton VS Fallon Henley!

NXT returns and Fallon makes her entrance. The bell rings and fans rally behind Fallon as Tiff talks trash. The two tie up, go around, and go along the ropes. They go along more ropes, the ref counts, and Fallon shoves. Tiff shoves back, gets around and throws Fallon by her hair! But Fallon gets up to SLAP Tiff, then throw her by her hair! Tiff wants a timeout and crawls to ropes, but Fallon YANKS her up to SLAM her down! Fallon runs, slides, trips and then hooks Tiff up in a HALF CRAB!

Seems time isn’t up on Tiffy Time, and she’s heading to the last WWE Premium Live Event of the year! Will Tiffany make sure she’s ringing in the New Year with a golden ticket back to the #TiffyTop?


Backstage interview with Wes Lee.

McKenzie Mitchell is grooving with the Cardiac Kid and welcomes him back to NXT. Wes says it is a celebration! High-five, and McKenzie says that after months away, Wes returned after the NXT North American Championship. What made him come back? What, you really think he could head out of here with his head hung low? He was on a never-ending hamster wheel, he had to go so hard, so fast, he couldn’t stop if he wanted to. So he hopped off track to slow down, and he’s back now. Head’s right, body’s right, and he has a whole list that he wants to take care of. Top of the list: Smack Dominik Mysterio in the mouth and take back the NXT North American Championship.

McKenzie says that’s fair, but then in walks Baron Corbin. Corbin says, “Look who decided to finally show up! Guess we’re back on the Wes Side, huh? Internet’s going crazy, people are exc… Nobody actually cares.” Wes asks why Corbin’s so mad. Is he still searching for relevancy? Corbin says what he could do is quit, be gone for three months, come back, and demand a title match with somebody he can’t beat. That’s what Wes does, right? Or just watch what Corbin did to Dragunov. Wes hopes Corbin knows Dragunov’s gonna beat the brakes off him and absolutely destroy him, right? And it’ll make Wes extremely happy to see that, given how Corbin’s been talking.

But what would make Wes happier is if he got to do it himself. Corbin says if Wes did it himself, then he and Dragunov would both have something in common: they’d both fail. Corbin leaves, Wes says he’s adding something to the list. Will Wes get back the gold from Dirty Dom? Will he shut up Mr. No BS along the way? Or will Corbin make sure this is truly the End of Days for Wes in NXT?


Backstage interview with Bron Breakker.

His match with Von Wagner is up next, and after what happened last week, is he at all concerned- Bron stops her there. Concerned? Bron heard the ref was told to use his discretion out there, so the only one who should be concerned is Von. This is gonna be the shortest comeback in WWE history, because Bron desecrates whatever is left of the corpse that is Von Wagner in that ring tonight! Then everyone will know that Von was the fool that thought he could beat Bron Breakker. Bron says he’s #MeanerThanEvil, but will he no longer be as badass as he thinks?


Dijak speaks.

“And here I thought Mick Foley liked Tyler Bate, respected Tyler Bate. Then why the hell did you put Tyler Bate in a qualifying match that he can’t win, Mick? A hardcore legend recognizing my talent is rewarding, but even more motivating. Mick Foley sees what I see: I possess the endurance, the discipline and the grit to thrive in the Iron Survivor Challenge. And the only person standing between me and Deadline is twinkle toes Tyler Bate. Bate, you’ve seen my vicious side before. And that was with nothing on the line. So just imagine what I am willing to do to you tonight to qualify for the Iron Survive Challenge tonight.”


Bron Breakker VS Von Wagner w/ Robert Stone!

NXT returns and Von makes his entrance, Suit Man Stone by his side. Fans fire up already, the bell rings, and Bron RAMS Von into a corner!

Bron whips, Von reverses but Bron leaps up to leap at Von, only to get a BOOT for it! Fans fire up with Von and Stone, but Von has to steady himself. Von puts Bron in the ring, goes up the corner, and he rains down fists! Fans count all the way to eight but Bron pushes Von away.

Bron leaps, Von dodges, and Von goes up to FLYING LARIAT! Fans fire up and Von again has to steady himself. Is he overdoing it already? Bron KNEES Von down! Stone coaches Von but Bron throws hands in the corner! The ref counts, Bron lets off to shout “I’M THE MAN!” Bron goes back to Von, drags him up, but Von HEADBUTTS! And ELBOWS! But Bron TACKLES Von! Bron rains down fists, fans boo but Bron taunts Von. Bron waistlocks, then GERMAN SUPLEXES! Von flounders, Bron says he’s just getting warmed up! Bron storms up on Von and clinches, to OVERHEAD SUPLEX!

Bron grins, Stone coaches Von, but Bron tells Stone to shut up. Bron brings the straps down, ‘IT’S OVER!” Bron clamps onto the arms, for the STEINER RECLINER!! Von endures, Stone coaches and the fans rally, and Von fights up! Bron is surprised and concerned, as Von RAMS Bron into buckles! Bron staggers away, but he comes back to ROCK Von! But Von stands up?! Von fires up, and he fires off haymakers of his own! Von whips Bron to ropes to LEAPING LARIAT! Von rallies with more big clotheslines, then he BUTTERFLY SUPLEXES! Fans fire up as Von runs, to SPLASH in the corner! And then BOOT Bron down!

Fans fire up, Von checks on Stone, but Bron runs in! Bron SPEARS Von down!! Stone’s cost Von twice now! Bron puts Von in the ring, takes aim again, and SPEARS Von down!!! Cover, Bron wins!

Winner: Bron Breakker, by pinfall

Fans boo but Stone gets in with that chair! SMACK to the back! Suit Man Stone avenges himself if nothing else, but Bron gets back up! Fans tell Stone he messed up now! Bron SWATS the chair away, chases Stone outside of the ring, but Stone says fine! Do what he will to Stone! Bron says he’s gonna put Stone in the hospital now! But wait, VON is back up!! Von turns Bron around, kicks low and gets him up, POWERBOMB through the desk!! Fans fire up again as Von stands tall! Stone says that’s right! Von did it! He finished Bron! Stone offers a handshake, and Von takes it! They hug it out! Fans cheer, will these best buds reach the top together now?


Backstage interview with Carmelo Hayes.

McKenzie is now with #HIM, and brings up how emotions must be running high. A lost last week to Ilja Dragunov for the NXT Championship, and then Trick Williams’ surprise return. Footage replays of the moment, and Melo looking like he was seeing a ghost. Trick stood Melo up after the loss, but Melo asks what about that? He was just shocked Trick returned after such a brutal attack. How does Melo know it was a “brutal” attack? Because Melo was there when they loaded Trick into the ambulance. He knows what McKenzie’s trying to do, so he’s gonna tell her and the entire world right now: Melo did NOT attack Trick.

Another reason for Melo’s reaction was the look in Trick’s eyes when he stood Melo back up. Melo could tell Trick is listening to all the outside voices pointing their fingers at Melo. So Melo knows what Trick wants, and that is answers face to face. That is what Melo will do, because that is what Melo owes Trick. Why does Melo owe Trick that? Melo says because they’re Trick Melo Gang, and they always gonna be here. Melo goes off to prepare for that moment, but who will Trick believe?


The Brawling Brutes speak.

Ridge Holland tells #OutTheMud that they heard the story. Pete Dunne asks, “Are you lot mad? We grew up on the streets! But different pavement.” Ridge says on these streets, danger is around every corner. And Dunne says if you didn’t scrap, you didn’t survive. But at the end of the day, they were the ones standing tall. They were the ones to make ends meet. For Northern Grit, it was a decade spent running through people on the rugby field. For the Bruiserweight, it was him at 12 years old scrappin’ grown men all over the UK in pubs and workingmen’s clubs. And no matter the scrap, the numbers were always fair. There was NO snake behavior!

If you make a racket, you face the consequences. “OTM, we have different principles.” “We don’t run up on people when their backs are turned!” “You’ll see us face to face next week…” “And we’ll look you dead in the eyes, and knock your teeth down your throats.” “Buckle up, fellas. The Brutes are coming.” Will Scrypts, Lucien Price & Bronco Nima wish they hadn’t picked a fight with these blokes after next week?


Lola Vice & Elektra Lopez VS Roxanne Perez & Kelani Jordan!

That verbal confrontation in the locker room is now going to be a physical one in the ring! Will the Women’s Breakout Tournament Winner(s) get the job done together tonight? Or will the original breakout star and the Gym Princess show them what real winners look like?

NXT returns as the Prodigy and Kelani make their entrance. The teams sort out and wait, Arianna Grace makes her way out here? “As Miss NXT, I, Arianna Grace, would love to wish you four lovely ladies the bestest of luck tonight. I look forward to watching you showcase your talents. I love you all.” Arianna gets emotional, and someone brings her a chair to sit in. The others are confused, but then Lopez ROCKS Roxie with a sucker punch! The bell rings, Lopez throws Roxie by her hair, then drags her up. Lopez whips, Roxie reverses and ROCKS Lopez! And again and again! But Lopez throat chops! Lopez scoops to FALL AWAY SLAM!

Lola tags as Lopez storms up on Roxie. Lopez puts Roxie in ropes and THRASHES her around! Lopez lets off and Lola AX KICKS! Cover, TWO! Lola keeps on Roxie with an ARMBAR! Roxie rolls Lola up, TWO! Roxie wrenches, YANKS the arm, and wrenches it again. Roxie wristlocks, then spins her and knuckle locks. Roxie CHOPS, then CHOPS again! Roxie goes up and up the ropes, tags Kelani and FLYING ARM-DRAGS! Kelani then slips in, waistlocks, but Lola bucks the O’Conner. But Kelani comes back to slingshot arm-drag Lola away! And DROPKICKS her down! Fans fire up as Kelani covers, TWO!

Kelani keeps Lola from Lopez, only for Lola to RAM her into the corner! Lopez tags in, she runs up and ELBOWS Kelani in the corner. Then short arm LARIATS! And ELBOW DROPS! Cover, TWO! Lopez tags Lola back in, they put Kelani in the corner, and Lopez digs her boots in while Lola tosses her hair and shouts, “Viva Latinas!” HIP ATTACK!

Winners: Roxanne Perez & Kelani Jordan, by pinfall

Arianna hijacks the announcement from Alicia Taylor, and says that while Roxie & Kelani lucked out tonight, the real winners are all the fans! Because- KARMEN ATTACKS ARIANNA! “Will you shut up already!?” Arianna says she’s so mean! But will The Prodigy & The Princess prove they’re the ones more worthy of a title opportunity than the Breakout Star?


Joe Gacy speaks.

“When it started, it was a whisper. It used to be something I could handle. But as I got older, it got louder. It was like somebody in the back of my ear just constantly yelling at me to the point where I saw nothing but red. And the people around would just look at me and judge me and label me, call me ‘The Weird Guy.’ Some even called me a maniac. But I mean, it’s just me. This is how I was built, this is how I was brought into this world, and then all the people that I surrounded myself with somehow kept the voice so quiet. I barely heard it, but it was still there. And it’s like they were never in a room full of people, and never felt more alone.

“Now, it’s like I’m in my own personal hell, and I don’t even know what to do. But maybe I do. Maybe I do know what to do.” Just what is it that Gacy knows now that he’s all alone?


Ilja Dragunov speaks.

“Last week, I needed to use every gram of energy to dispatch Carmelo Hayes. I could barely put one foot in front of the other, that’s how drained I was from our trilogy. He is a warrior. And all of that felt me in our set of battles. But as I turned the corner, I got dropped by a force last week. Baron Corbin, you saw a little window of opportunity and you took it. But y’know, my eyes are the window to my soul. So take a good look. Because now you are on my radar. We may have met before, but with this title on my shoulder, I’m a different animal. So Baron, if you remember one thing, remember this: The only person who can slay the Dragon is the Dragon himself!”

Corbin watches this message.

Edris Enofe & Malik Blade watch it, too, and so do Hank ‘n’ Tank. That dragon spittin’ fire! Yeah, if they were Corbin, they’d be worried. Corbin chuckles and says that’s why they’ll never be anybody. Corbin may be Mr. NO BS, but is he the one oblivious to what’s coming his way?


Otis w/ The Alpha Academy VS Drew Gulak w/ Charlie Dempsey, Myles Borne & Damon Kemp!

The Meta Four cheated “Cadet” Tozawa and the Philly Stretcher had to pile on. Now The Dozer steps up for his team! Will he run through Gulak and his big mouth? Or will Gulak’s goons help him win like Dar’s did?

NXT returns and Gulak makes his entrance, his crew with him. Hmm, Catchpoint hand sign. The bell rings, Gulak and Otis circle and fans rally behind Otis. Otis and Gulak tie up, Gulak headlocks but Otis powers out. Otis runs Gulak over and shakes those hips! Fans fire up, Gable goes to a corner and Otis taunts him with the hips. The two reset, go again, and Gulak kicks low to headlock. Otis pries free, shimmies and shakes, and he reels Gulak in to short arm LARIAT! Otis brings Gulak up to RAM him with the gut! And again! Fans fire up and Gulak goes to a corner. Otis runs in to RAM Gulak into the corner!

Fans fire up and Otis brings Gulak up. Otis whips corner to corner, runs in but Gulak dodges and Otis POSTS himself! Otis falls to the floor, the Academy is there to coach him, but Gulak lets the ring count climb. Otis rises, he rolls in, but Gulak runs in to UPPERCUT! Gulak then goes out and up the corner, to FLYING LARIAT! Cover, TWO and with authority! Fans fire up as Otis rises, but Gulak wrenches an arm. Gulak drops to TRIANGLE HOLD, but Otis stays up! Gulak shifts, drags him down, and keeps Otis from grabbing the ropes by grabbing both arms! Maxxine coaches Otis and fans rally up as he endures!

Otis fights up, stacks Gulak, TWO! But Otis tries again, TWO as Gulak gets the other arm up. So Otis deadlifts and POWERBOMBS Gulak down! Fans fire up as Otis goes to a corner. Gulak runs in but Otis catches him, BIG back suplex! Gulak flounders away and both men are down. The fans rally, Gable coaches Otis while Gulak’s team coaches him. Otis runs, he busts through the clothesline, and then busts through another! Otis somersaults and stands to POUNCE Gulak! Fans fire up as Otis then WRECKER ELBOWS, and WRECKER ELBOWS, and WRECKER ELBOWS again! Gulak is in a corner and Otis whips him! WRECKER ELBOW in the corner!

DISCUS LARIAT puts Gulak down! And off comes the shirt! The fans are thunderous for the CATERPILLAR ELBOW! Otis drags Gulak up to then POP-UP POWERBOMB!! Cover, Otis wins!

Winner: Otis, by pinfall

The Academy now celebrates as Otis gets the big win! And they all do the Tozawa shuffle! That’s naaaasty! But will things be even wilder next week on the Alpha Academy’s debut on Supernova Sessions?


Kiana James talks with Tiffany Stratton backstage.

Kiana congratulates Tiffany on beating Fallon tonight, and Tiffany thanks her for it. But did Kiana really expect anything else? And now Tiff gets to sit back, relax, and watch as the next four women are determined. And Kiana says one of those spots has her name on it. And they can both agree that they cannot let Roxie win the Iron Survivor Challenge again. This Women’s Division is the hottest in all of WWE thanks to these two. They are carrying this division on their backs! Which is why they can’t let anyone else, new or established, to knock them off their perch. Like Fallon Henley! She doesn’t even deserve to breathe the same air as them.

Or Roxie! Kiana did NOT deserve what Roxie did to her in the Devil’s Playground match. Absolutely! But guess at Deadline, it comes down to the two of them in the end. And Tiffany says we all know who is winning. Kiana says so does she. Kiana heads out, and Tiffany says she actually doesn’t hate Kiana. Are these two mean girls actually bonding over being mean girls? But then who will be the meanest of them all when it comes down to the Deadline?

Wait, Boa is in the background, but we can’t see who it is at this angle. They step forward, and it’s Dante Chen. But with face paint like Boa’s?! These two head off, just what is brewing in the shadows?


NXT checks in with Chase U.

Jacy Jayne paces around while ranting about how she scratched his back but he won’t scratch hers. He thinks he can get away with that? No he will not! But then Tony D’Angelo’s cousins walk in asking for Mr. Chase. Sorry, he’s not here right now. Well, make sure he gets this letter. Who is this from? Oh, he knows exactly who this is from. Okay… Jacy takes a peek, and sees some rather incriminating pictures! But Chase snatches the envelope from her and says, “Seriously, Jacy?!” Jacy says she didn’t do anything. Jacy, opening other people’s mail is illegal! And this is not something she wants to get involved with.

Duke Hudson & Thea Hail walk in and Duke says look at these two, getting along and all. Almost like they’re becoming besties. Thea asks what they were talking about. Jacy says nothing, just how the match went last week. Chase nods and Jacy says good news is, our men’s NXT Tag Team Champions have their first title defense next week. Duke is surprised to hear that but Jacy says it’s the rematch with Tony & Stacks. When was Mr. Chase gonna tell Duke? He was gonna do that right now but it slipped his mind and Jacy beat him to it. Anyway, class dismissed, everyone can go. Yeah, good idea. Time to strategize! That’s why Chase is the professor.

Y-Yeah, that’s why. Thea and Duke head out, and Jacy gives Chase a knowing look. Chase goes to the envelope, and sees the things for himself. Just what kind of dirt does The Don have on The Professor?


Men’s Iron Survivor Challenge Qualifier: DIJAK VS Tyler Bate!

Though he is big and strong, Hard Justice isn’t the Big Strong Boi! And while Bate has had all the gold NXT UK had to offer, he still wants THE gold in NXT! Will Bate finally be able to move on from former glory? Or will Dijak feast his eyes on the Deadline?

The bell rings and fans fire up as the two rush in! Bate headlocks, Dijak powers out and Bate RAMS shoulders, but Dijak doesn’t budge! Dijak then DECKS Bate! Fans rally, Dijak grins and he stomps Bate. Dijak stands Bate up in the corner to ROCK him, ELBOW him, and whip him corner to corner. Dijak runs in, blocks boots, but Bate brings Dijak down to KNEE! Bate goes up to FLYING UPPERCUT! Cover, TWO! Dijak catches his breath but Bate headlocks. Fans rally as Bate SMACKS Dijak with a boot! And then again! Dijak crawls, Bate brings him up and around, but Dijak blocks! Dijak fireman’s carries, but Bate fights free!

Bate waistlocks, Dijak switches and whips, but Bate stops himself to ENZIGURI Dijak out of the ring! Bate builds speed and he FLIES! Direct hit and down goes Dijak! Fans fire up as Bate stands and Dijak crawls. Bate runs in, to CROSSBODY, but Dijak catches him this time! Dijak KNEES Bate int he side, then spins to TOSS Bate over the barriers! Fans boo but Dijak grins as NXT goes picture in picture.

Dijak stands, the ref reprimands, but Dijak drags Bate up and over the barriers to dump him down. Dijak drags Bate up, puts him in the ring, and covers, TWO! Dijak pushes Bate down to rain down fists! The ref reprimands, Dijak lets off to cover, TWO! Bate sputters but Dijak stomps him around. Dijak drags Bate up, whips him to ropes, but Bate ducks ‘n’ dodges and UPPERCUTS! Dijak stays up so Bate keeps moving, to UPPERCUT again! And UPPERCUT again! Bate keeps moving, but he blocks a boot, to reel Dijak in and EXPLODER! Both men are down but then Bate kips up! And STANDING SHOOTING STARS! Cover, TWO!

Bate keeps cool and he stalks Dijak to a corner. Dijak goes to the apron, Bate drags Dijak up, and Bate throws hands! Bate climbs up the corner, stands Dijak up and rains down fists. Dijak throws hands in return! Dijak climbs up now, but Bate throws more hands! Bate brings Dijak up to SUPER- NO, Dijak fights to be back on the corner! NXT returns to single picture as Bate tries again, for a STALLING SUPERPLEX!! Fans are thunderous while both men are down! Fans rally, both men sit up, and Bate throws hands. Dijak hits back! Bate fires a flurry, but Dijak ROCKS him with just one! Bate stands to fire more shots!

Dijak fires shots in return, and even more shots! But Bop up, BANG hits! Dijak staggers, Bop up to BANG again! And then Bop up, but Dijak choke grips! HIGH JUSTICE!! Cover, TWO?!? Bate survives and fans rally up. Bate goes to the corner, Dijak runs in to CYCLONE- NO, Bate gets under the boot to fireman’s carry! AIRPLANE SPIN!! Fans fire up as Bate goes around and around and around and around, for TEN! FIFTEEN! TWENTY before the DRIVER! Cover, TWO!! Dijak survives and Bate is beside himself. Fans rally up as Bate and Dijak crawl to ropes. Bate drags himself up while the fans cheer him on.

Dijak wobbles, Bate hobbles, and both men swing, but miss wild from being so dizzy! Dijak and Bate stand up again, Dijak swings wild and almost hits the ref! Bate ROCKS Dijak! Dijak SUPERKICKS Bate! Dijak CYCLONE- NO, Bate dodges, REBOUNDER! Cover, TWO!! Dijak is still in this but Bate drags him up! But Dijak suplexes, TIME TO FLY! Bate ends up in a corner, Dijak storms over and he climbs that corner. Bate is in the drop zone and Dijak reaches the top, but Bate goes up after him! SUPER GERMAN SUPLEX! But Dijak lands on his feet?!? Dijak then CYCLONE BOOTS!! Cover, TWO!!! Bate survives and the fans are thunderous!

“This is Awesome!” while both men are down. Dijak stands, he drags Bate up, and he reels Bate in to the torture rack. FEAST YOUR- NO! Bate lands out! Bate ROCKS Dijak! ROCKS him again! And then reels him in! Underhooks and- NO, Dijak back drops free! Bate lands on his feet to run, and he baits Dijak into the ring. Dijak blocks a boot but Bate again knees him back! Bate goes up to leap, into the torture rack!! FEAST YOUR EYES!! Cover, DIJAK WINS!!

Winner: Dijak, by pinfall (advances to NXT Deadline)

Fans can’t believe it, but the Big Strong Boi falls short! Will Dijak turn the Iron Survivor Challenge into an action movie with him as the big bad boss villain?


Trick Williams pulls into the parking lot!

Trick rolls up in style and he storms into the arena in style, but this isn’t about looking good, this is about looking for the truth! Will Trick get to the bottom of who attacked him? Or does he already know?


More Iron Survivor Challenge qualifiers are on the way!

We saw Mick Foley pick his two match-ups tonight, but there will be even MORE WWE Legends helping make the matches! Jerry “The King” Lawler, John Bradshaw Layfield, and the one and only Lita will all be giving their choices in the following weeks! They will be looking over the entire NXT roster, each superstar’s body of work in 2023 as well as their intangible traits to determine who is worthy. And there’s always a chance diamonds in the rough who are hungry for opportunities stands out. Lita is on the clock now, who will she name in her dream match-ups?


Carmelo Hayes is in the ring.

NXT returns and Melo has a mic to cut to the chase. “This thing is bigger than the NXT Championship. This is about my friend, this is about my brother. Trick, come out here, man, let’s talk about it.” And so Trick Williams makes his way out! Fans chant “WHOOP DAT TRICK!” and Booker feels it as Trick also has a mic. Trick takes the sunglasses off to get serious but Melo stops him to say he understands exactly why Trick is upset. Trick got blindsided and the opportunity of a lifetime got taken away from him. Melo understands why Trick is feeling the way he’s feeling. But Trick needs to understand, roadblocks are part of the journey.

Melo wants Trick to look at their own journey. Melo needed someone by his side, who did he call? He called Trick Williams. He put Trick on game, won championship after championship, and shared that glory with Trick, his best friend! Without Trick, there’d be no Melo. So before- But now Trick cuts Melo off! This is exactly why Trick is having such a hard time figuring this whole thing out. Because over the last two years, Trick’s done nothing but put Trick Melo Gang first. Melo’s success has been Trick’s success. Whenever Melo won a championship, Trick was so happy, it was like he won a championship himself.

And he heard all the critiques, took all the beatings on the side, and Trick said that whenever Melo shoots, he don’t miss. Melo nods and says it worked. Because he didn’t miss! They were like Shaq & Kobe, Jordan & Pippin! Whenever Melo won, Trick won. That’s exactly Trick’s point! Whenever Melo won. It’s easy to talk like that when you got the ball, when Melo’s taking all the shots. But what about now? Now that Trick has the ball, now that Trick’s taking all the shots, why can’t Melo be there exactly the same way Trick was there for Melo?

Or better yet, here’s the better question, the question the whole world wants to know, and the question that Trick needs to know. “Melo, did you-” “Did I do what, Trick? Did I believe in you? Yes! Before Trick Williams became the hottest star in NXT, before the Whoop Dat chants, all of that, I was there for you, Trick. Look, man, you need to understand that. I knew you were destined for greatness from the beginning. When the NFL didn’t work out, all of that. Look, man, everything that Cena told you, I told you months ago. I knew you were destined for greatness. I knew that you had the potential to be a once in a lifetime performer.

“So does that answer your question, Trick?” Trick tells Melo he just wants to do his own thing, have his moments, have his main events. Melo had his moments, so why can’t he see that Trick deserves that, too? Melo says that’s why he wants Trick by his side! But Trick says he can’t help but think back on this. He had Melo’s back. When Melo needed him, Trick was there. When Melo needed the fancy entrances, Trick poured his heart and soul into them and made them the bets entrances in all of WWE! But where is Melo when Trick needs him? When he got jumped! When he got attacked! Trick didn’t even see what happened, he just knew Melo wasn’t there!

Melo double checks. Trick didn’t see who it was? No, all Trick knows is that he got hit in the head and went down. When he came to, the refs were beside him, and the only voice he heard was Melo’s. Boom, in the ambulance. Only thing Trick could think of were that his chances at the NXT Championship were gone. No, no, hold on. Let’s run that back. Trick for real didn’t see who attacked him? What is Melo’s mind on right now? Is that all he can think about? Trick got attacked, and here Melo is, talking about wanting this, wanting that, Melo chooses this. But look where they at, Trick! EXACTLY! So let’s clear all the ice and address the elephant in the room.

Trick asks Melo, “Did you attack me?” Fans seem convinced, but Melo takes his time. Trick wants the truth? Yes. But wait! Lexis King makes his way out here? “Well, well, well. Ladies and gentlemen, we have quite the paradox here, don’t we? We got the friend who was brutally assaulted. And the first man at the scene of the crime was his best friend. Am I wrong, Melo?” Melo says he knows King is new here and all, but do us a favor and shut up and mind your own business! Fans cheer that. Trick says real talk, this isn’t King’s business, so mind your mouth while grown folks is talking. Fans cheer that, too!

King tells everyone to relax. He is just trying to help get to the bottom of this. And seems to him like everyone knows who did it. Don’t they? Though, it could’ve been someone else. Someone new, someone trying to make an impact. Someone dark and dirty like you’ve never seen! Someone with a mind so twisted, his thoughts so unclean… Now ask yourselves, are you sure that it was Melo that assaulted Trick? Trick said it before, get on out while grown folks is talking. King wants Trick to say it! He wants Trick to say what everyone here is thinking! Trick has been sucking his thumb for weeks, and- Trick takes a swing on King! But King ducks and Trick DECKS Melo!!

King gets away and everyone is stunned! Trick is furious with King, he wants to help Melo up, but Melo slaps Trick’s hand away. Trick still offers, and Melo accepts the second time. Trick Melo Gang still stands together, but Melo still scowls. Is he mad at King? At Trick? At himself? Or D, all of the above?

My Thoughts:

A great NXT to get things going towards Deadline. I like that we’re getting Hall of Famers to “book” the qualifiers, and I’m also okay with not having it in a roundtable discussion format. Less talking to get to the point of great match-ups, which we definitely got tonight. Tiffany VS Fallon was a great match to “make up” for the no contest last time, but I figured Tiffany was going to win that. And great promo from Tiffany and Kiana to plug Kiana as a potential choice. Though I’d love if they made Kiana sweat and have her be one of the last chosen. And Dijak VS Bate was awesome stuff, great main event match, and what a surprise that Dijak won!

Also I love NXT using the same Easter egg “watch the background” stuff during Tiffany and Kiana talking. Boa has now brought Chen into the same spookiness as before, I really hope this means Tian Sha returns soon. Which in some relation, Xia Li being here to go after the NXT Women’s Championship is also a nice surprise. Xia may be feuding with Becky on Raw but she also still wants the title she felt Becky let go on purpose. Great knockout on that big security guard, and Xia VS Lyra is going to be great stuff for Deadline. And at the same time, Xia is that kind of opponent that could do a lot of damage even though she loses, and then Lola Vice tries to MITB that title off Lyra.

Really good group promo from the various female superstars tonight, with everyone getting something to say. Great match of Lola & Lopez VS Roxie & Kelani, and great win for Roxie & Kelani. Also, great bit of Arianna being a somewhat two-faced Heel, trying to hog the spotlight while giving backhanded comments to the others, only for Karmen to call her out on it and go after her for it. Karmen VS Arianna will be really good stuff, and could even be part of the Iron Survivor Challenge qualifiers. And good promo from Joe Gacy here. NXT Stand & Deliver Philly should be Joe Gacy VS his intrusive thoughts in a cinematic match.

Great Heritage Cup match to open the night, but of course Tozawa lost because duh, that dang Meta Four is always gonna get in the way. They’ve all learned well from the Roman Reigns Bloodline strategy books. I don’t know who is gonna take that cup away from Dar, but they might just need to be someone gigantic and with the strength to win by knockout. Hell, make it Von. Von may have lost to Bron in a really good match, but he got the last laugh tonight putting Bron through the table. And while Robert Stone isn’t enough to counter all of Meta Four, maybe, just maybe, the Robert Stone Brand can rebuild. Or also continuity with how Maxxine used to be Sophia and she could help out.

Good promo from the Alpha Academy and Gulak’s Not Catchpoint, and really fun match of Otis VS Gulak. Otis is also a possibility since he’s a big man who could literally squash Dar to get a pinfall, and maybe even make it so Dar is deemed unable to continue because he got squashed that badly. At the same time, that seems kinda mean since Otis would just be another RawDown star winning an NXT prize. Corbin had some good promos with Wes Lee and then the other tag team guys, but Dragunov’s promo was great. Dragunov VS Corbin is going to be great but yeah, Dragunov definitely wins to retain.

And what great use of the whodunnit story tonight. Melo defended his side, but McKenzie was fishing for clues. Was Melo really trying to deflect things onto Cena with the whole “Trick couldn’t see the attacker” line? That seems like a silly move. But Lexis King joining this story is a nice little detail. And that look on Melo’s face after getting hit by Trick, that’s very telling in its own way. I said last week that I’d like for Melo VS Trick to happen separate of the Iron Survivor Challenge, so I guess we’ll have to see what happens these next few weeks.

My Score: 8.8/10

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!

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?

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!

Julia stomps Emi into the drop zone, then goes up the corner. MOONSAULT!! Cover, Julia wins!

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. They go around, Swerve puts White in a corner, but White turns it around. Swerve turns it back around, White pulls hair to turn it around again, then he RAMS into Swerve! And again! And again! White tosses Swerve out, then goes out to CHOP! White then RAMS Swerve into railing, mocks Nana’s dance, but Swerve throws hands! Swerve runs and RAMS White into railing! Fans fire up with Swerve and he stomps White down. Swerve then whips, but White reverses and Swerve hits railing so hard, he goes over into the front row!

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! Swerve whips, White holds ropes, then he dumps Swerve out. But Swerve pulls hair! White HOTSHOTS Swerve, builds speed and slides, but Swerve catches him to BACK SUPLEX White into the front row! 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 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 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)

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
