The fans give this one a standing ovation, what a way to open a show! But the other semifinal isn’t until next week, who will join these alpha males in the Dusty Cup Finals?

 

Ilja Dragunov is backstage.

He’s talking with a stage hand about some things, but then Josh Briggs asks for a moment. Dragunov says good evening, Josh. Surely, he didn’t mean to interrupt Dragunov’s conversation, did he? Oh no, Briggs did. Briggs was told by JBL himself that Briggs needs to figure out who Briggs really is. And since Dragunov is the NXT Champion, that makes him the measuring stick of NXT. Briggs needs to know where he stands, he needs to know how he measures up to the Mad Dragon. Dragunov stops Briggs there and says, with respect, he likes the bravery. But Briggs needs to question himself. Is this really what he wants?

Briggs wants Dragunov to look him in the eyes. There ain’t no fear. But Briggs isn’t so sure about Dragunov now. Making Trick Williams pull double duty at Vengeance Day, that’s real smart. That’s how Dragunov ensures he keeps the title around his waist a little bit longer. Oh, is that how Briggs sees it? Tell him what you really wanna say! Trick steps in and says that he knows Briggs wants to prove himself, but Trick’s got to make sure Dragunov is good to go for Vengeance Day. Briggs will just have to prove himself another time. Briggs says honestly, Trick can’t tell him what to do.

Let’s be real: After Vengeance Day, Trick hops back into Melo’s back pocket anyway. So let Briggs talk with the man who is still gonna be champ after that match. Back pocket? Is Briggs crazy? Hard of hearing maybe? Do you know who is next in line for the title shot? Don’t answer, that was a Trick question. Dragunov tries not to laugh, and then Trick says if Briggs wants his opportunity, Trick IS your opportunity. Briggs says that after tonight, Trick will be the one pushing back this match. Briggs heads out, Trick says, “Yeehaw.” Trick tells Dragunov that he just wants Dragunov to be there for Vengeance Day.

Oh, Dragunov will be there. The question now is, will Trick? Dragunov will be watching. The Mad Dragon heads out, will he and Trick still be the match on the card in two weeks?

 

Wren Sinclair pep talks herself up.

“Okay, Wren, this is your first match on NXT. You eliminated Lash Legend from the Battle Royale. You have a chance to beat her tonight, you have a huge opporutnity. You… might throw up.” Fallon Henley walks in to check on her and it spooks Wren. Wren introduces herself and Fallon says yeah, she knows, they met. Oh, right. Wren admits to being so nervous for tonight. This is her first singles match on NXT, and just a few weeks ago, it was a pipe dream. Now she’s here, and she’s trying to fit in, trying to make friends and trying not to make enemies. Fallon has Wren slow down and take a breath. It is never easy being the new girl.

But Wren did really well in the battle royale, even eliminated Lash, and that’s big. So just keep being yourself and it’ll fall into place. Wren thanks Fallon but self-high-fives before heading out. Will Wren be able to repeat that huge upset? Or will she be the victim of Lash lashing out?

 

Ava Raine exits Shawn Michaels’ office.

“What a meeting.” Because surprise, WILLIAM REGAL is back!! Ava thanks Regal for getting her that meeting and he says it was quite a productive one. And congrats to Ava, she is the NEW General Manager of NXT, and youngest  GM ever in WWE history! Ava says it feels unreal, but Regal says believe it. But also, he wants her to look after this brand for him. He was here day one, this brand means the world to him. It is a thankless job with long hours, egos to juggle, and lots of split-second, very tough decisions to make. But he knows she can do it. She thanks him, and knows she has big shoes to fill, but she’s sure she can do it.

Regal says if she ever needs advice, his phone is always on. They shake hands, and now Ava holds the power in her hands. Will she be able to keep NXT rolling and in one piece?

 

Wren Sinclair VS Lash Legend w/ The Meta Four!

NXT returns and Wren makes her entrance. The bell rings and Lash runs right up to push Wren to a corner! Meta Four barks at Wren while Lash keeps her cornered. Wren tries to get away, Lash throws her back to the corner, but then Wren dodges the haymaker! Lash blocks the arm-drag, then the other arm-drag, so Wren gets around to SLEEPER! Lash moves around, rebounds off ropes, but Wren holds tight! Fans rally for Wren but Lash runs to HOTSHOT her! Wren sputters and flounders, Lash CLUBS her down! Lash rains down fists, dribbles Wren off the mat, then lets off to talk trash.

Lash puts Wren in the ropes to CLUB away on her! Fans boo but Lash lets off as the ref counts. Lash puts Wren in another corner, RAMS into her again and again, but lets off as the ref counts. Lash torture racks Wren, thrashes her in the rack, then bends her! Wren flails and sunset flips, but Lash stays up! Lash leans back but then drags Wren up, to TOSS her to a corner! Lash runs up but Wren dodges, Lash POSTS herself! Fans rally as Wren gets up, dodges a boot, but Lash blocks a kick. Wren ENZUGIRIS Lash down! Lash flounders to ropes, Wren runs in to sunset flip, but Jakara helps keep Lash up!

The ref reprimands Jakara and counts, so Jakara lets go. Wren finishes the sunset flip, TWO!! Lash gets up, and she swings, but Wren dodges! Lash almost runs into Jakara! Then Wren shoves Lash into Jakara! Roll-up, TWO!! Lash escapes, choke grips, and she POP-UP SPINEBUSTERS! Cover, Lash wins!

Winner: Lash Legend, by pinfall

It was a slam dunk in the end, and Lash gets her lick back. But she isn’t done with Wren as she storms up on her. Wait! Here comes Fallon! The Cowgirl CLOBBERS Jakara, then dodges Lash to CHOP! Wren CHOPS! Fallon DECKS Lash! Lash gets up, Wren & Fallon DOUBLE CLOTHESLINE Lash up and out! Wren wanted to make a friend, and now she’s got one! Will Fallon & Wren bring Meta Four down a notch?

 

Something goes down at Tintoretto.

There’s been a brawl, and Jaida Parker stands over Adriana Rizzo! Jaida tells Adriana that it is simple: OTM makes the rules now. Stop playing with them! Scrypts, Bronco Nima & Lucien Price intimidate the manager to tell Tony D that it ain’t over until OTM says. And clean this place up. OTM heads out, will they regret messing with the Family? Will Riz have to handle biz?

 

Elektra Lopez storms in backstage.

She asks around for “that pendeja,” Lola Vice! If you see her, tell Lopez! La Madrina is mad, but will the MMA Mamacita find her first?

 

DIJAK VS Joe Gacy!

Hard Justice wasn’t respectful of Trey Bearhill’s culture, and he wasn’t respectful of Mr. Inclusion just wanting to be on commentary for a change. Gacy took the fight to Dijak then, will he take the fight to Dijak now?

Well, wouldn’t you know? Gacy does take the fight to Dijak by going after him during his entrance! They brawl, the fans fire up, and Gacy ROCKS Dijak! Dijak knees low, but Gacy throws m ore hands! Gacy POSTS Dijak and Dijak tumbles over the steel steps! Fans fire up as Gacy stands Dijak up, but then Dijak RAMS Gacy into steps! Gacy flounders, Dijak ROCKS him with haymaker after haymaker! Dijak TOSSES Gacy into the gap! The ref reprimands but this isn’t a match yet, so Dijak goes looking for plunder! Dijak gets a chair! More refs hurry out to tell Dijak to stop, but Gacy gets up to FLYING FOREARM!

Fans fire up as Gacy CLUBS away on Dijak! Dijak hits back, Gacy CLUBS him some more! Gacy grabs a chair for himself, JAMS Dijak low, and then SMACKS him on the back! Gacy swings again, Dijak dodges and Gacy hits a table! Dijak then CYCLONE BOOTS Gacy through a wall! The fans lose their minds, and that’s the what? Third time the wall below the perch has been busted? But then Gacy gets himself out of the wreckage!! How?! Dijak is just as stunned! Fans want to “LET THEM FIGHT!” and Gacy eggs Dijak on! Dijak runs up, but Gacy POSTS him again! And UPPERCUTS! And fires off haymakers!

Dijak choke grips, to HIGH JUSTICE through the desk!! Fans lose their minds, but Dijak sits Gacy up to say this isn’t done! Security rushes out to stop this but fans boo and chant “LET THEM FIGHT!” Dijak fights free of the security, but Gacy’s back up!? Gacy clamps on a SLEEPER!! Security and refs pry Gacy off of Dijak, but Gacy says if Dijak wants this fight, he’ll bring it! What will happen should NXT actually let these two fight it out?!

 

Arianna Grace rehearses an acceptance speech.

“Thank you all for your love and support. I leave you now with what my mother would say to be before bed as a child. ‘Darling, if you have a vision, you will be where you want, see where you’re headed, and that is de-lightful!’ I love you all!” Elektra Lopez then barges into the locker room and says, “Alright, fun’s over. Where is she?” Arianna’s right here! Lopez wasn’t talking about you, princess. Lopez sighs and barges back out. Arianna says some ladies have no social grace.

 

Lexis King speaks.

“Ladies and gentlemen, don’t freak out, but the main event is coming on a little bit early tonight, courtesy of the Face of Tuesday Nights, Lexis King. And ol’ Trey Bearhill better be grateful for the spotlight that I’m about to put on him, because there’s only one man in this match worthy of center stage, and you’re looking right at him.” The Drama King thinks he’s the leading man of NXT, but will he find out he’s more the antagonist than protagonist?

 

Von Wagner & Robert Stone visit The University of Central Florida.

Von asks Stone why he brought Von back to UCF. Because, doesn’t this place bring back memories? Well of course, these are his old stomping grounds. He was Number 87 for the UCF Knights, but what does this have to do with the NXT Heritage Cup? Because here, they will work on speed, stamina and agility, with the two best coaches to help them: Stone’s sons! Von’s fired up to see “The Bash Brothers,” and they ask Von if he’s ready. Ready to roll! But are you ready!? HELL YEAH!! Training montage as Von runs drills as fast as he can, does crunches as long as he can, and is quizzed on how the Heritage Cup Division works!

How many rounds? SIX! How many falls? Best two outta three! Get those knees up! Catch the ball! Run up the stairs! Hit Oro! Oh, well, he bopped Stone with the ball, good enough. Now for a tackling dummy with Dar’s face on it! Von sets up, and TACKLES Dummy Dar! Hit harder than that! You wanna take the cup or not!? Von hears Dar mocking him, and goes full Water Boy! YEAH!! The brothers help Von up, and Stone is sure Von is ready. Von shouts, “NOAAAM~!” Will Von be ready to knock Dar out and win the whole damn thing?

 

Lexis King VS Trey Bearhill!

NXT returns as King makes his entrance. Trey is already waiting, chomping at the bit. King steps in the ring, the bell rings, and then King dodges Trey to CHOP! Trey just shouts back! King shoves Trey, but Trey SHOVES King down! Trey runs up, King BOOTS him! King CHOPS, eggs Trey on, so Trey DECKS King! Fans fire up with Trey as he stalks King and brings him up on the apron. Trey TOSSES King back in and fires up! King flounders to a corner, Trey runs in to SPLASH! Trey storms around, scoops King and SLAMS him! Fans fire up as Trey ELBOW- NO, King avoids the drop! King throws down ax handles and stomps!

King eggs Trey on, then lines up a shot. King KICKS, but Trey snarls. King KICKS Trey again, eggs him on, and Trey shouts! King KICKS and KICKS, but Trey blocks! Trey swings, King ducks and runs, but into a DOUBLE CHOP! And another DOUBLE CHOP! Fans fire up as Trey CHOPS, CHOPS and CLAWS King on the back! King goes to a corner, Trey fires up and GRIZZLY MAGNUMS! Trey wants King to get up, since this is the fight he wanted! King stands, Trey clamps right on, but King fights the choke slam! King SUPERKICKS< then mule kicks, then runs and runs to BLINDSIDE LARIAT!

King drags Trey up to cross the arms, and CORONATION NECKBREAKER! Cover, King wins!

Winner: Lexis King, by pinfall

King brings down Trey fair and square, and his ego is only inflating from here. But how long will King have to wait for his crowning achievement?

 

Trick Melo Gang meets up backstage.

Trick asks where Melo has been but he said he was locked in, watching some LWO matches. Trick checked any of these yet? No, but he will. Melo says okay, eyes on the prize. But also, what’s Trick doing fighting Dragunov’s battles, man? What? Trick ain’t fighting no battles for Dragunov, what’s he talking about? Melo is just saying, Dragunov’s playing Trick like 2K, bro. No, man, Dragunov wouldn’t do that. Trick just wants Dragunov to be 100 for Vengeance Day. Melo says forget all that! This has been going on since October, when Dragunov attacked Trick. Trick won the Iron Survivor, and suddenly Dragunov gets hurt?

Dragunov knows Trick Melo Gang is a lock for the Dusty Cup! But then he wants to give Trick his match, knowing full well Trick’s gonna have to wrestle twice on the same night now! But yeah, go ahead, handle the issues with Briggs tonight to save Dragunov. Melo wants Trick to understand something: Dragunov sees Trick as a threat, so he will do anything and everything to make sure Trick Melo Gang doesn’t win the Dusty Cup, and that Trick doesn’t win the NXT Championship. The sooner Trick sees that, the better. Trick says he knows Melo knows the game, and appreciates Melo giving Trick the game.

But Trick knows the game, too. He already thought this through. Next week is LWO, but tonight, Trick faces Briggs, and Melo faces Austin Theory on SmackDown. They’re locked in, but like always, Trick wants to do this by himself. Melo knows, and says go ahead. They shake hands, will Trick show Melo he’s ready to be double champion?

 

It’s an all new Supernova Sessions!

Noam Dar welcomes us to the show, “live from the moon,” and says sadly, Lash & Jakara can’t be here because they have to handle that new girl, Wren, and Fallon “I Love Horses Way Too Much” Henley. Oro mocks the yeehaw, and says did you see Von training with all his friends? Yeah, turns out Stone’s kids and Von all go to the same grade school. They even share crayons! It doesn’t matter how hard Von trains, he can’t beat Dar! That’s why Dar is more than happy to give Von his Heritage Cup match. But Von and those stupid stinking Stone kids will never touch Dar’s cup! Oro says, “Tell ’em, brother, tell ’em!”

Now, tonight’s guest brings a whole new level of heat. She was in a battle royale she didn’t even need to be in, just so she could screw over her best friend. Talk about petty. Introducing the Women’s Breakout Star, Lola Vice! Fans fire up as Lola makes her entrance and joins Dar & Oro in the ring. They take their seats and Lola actually gets a good chair compared to other guests. Dar says it is a pleasure to have her here, and says last week, Lopez’s reaction to Lola’s betrayal was fantastic! Meta Four liked it, and they loved it! But was it planned?

Lola says that the moment she and Lopez teamed up, there was an expiration date to the friendship. Lopez is La Madrina, right? All credit to her, she saw a rising star bust into NXT, jumped on the bandwagon, and tried to ride it as long as she could. But Lopez is a LEECH. Dar likes the trash talk already! Lola says Lopez was trying to use her popularity to make herself relevant again. But Lola doesn’t carry deadweight. She dumped Lopez out like the baggage she is. Good stuff. But does Lola have any regrets? Nope! She regrets NADA! Dar knows that means “nothing.”

Lola doesn’t regret all the people watching her every move. She doesn’t regret all the women in the locker room being super jealous. And she doesn’t regret getting this breakout contract on her own. But wait! Here comes Lopez! She’s heard enough! Looking at Lola now, Lopez isn’t questioning why Lola did what she did. She’s just questioning who the hell Lola really is. Because half the time, Lola is holding back tears while retweeting even the littlest positive comment about her, while pretending to be all sweet and innocent, saying it is such an honor to be here in the WWE, having worked harder and sacrificed more than anyone else~!

“B*TCH!! I sacrificed way damn more! My hard work every single day is what got me here! And it’s what grabbed the attention of Santos Escobar & Legado Del Fantasma!” Dar is sweating and Oro is trying not to have Lola get mad at him while Lopez continues. “La Madrina is real! You got here by shaking your ass on Instagram!” Fans fire up hearing that one! Lopez says Lola is auditioning for a Lifetime movie one moment, and then is a wannabe MMA fighter shadowboxing in a bikini! Real talk? What Lopez is looking at is the biggest phony of all the WWE! Fans chant and duel “You’re a Phony!” “No She’s Not!”

Lopez says the one real thing in Lola’s life is gonna be their match next week, 1v1! Lola asks Lopez if she knows what she’s getting herself into. Oh, right, right, Lopez doesn’t wanna wait until next week. She wants to burn “Vice City” down tot he ground right now! Lopez TACKLES Lola over the couch!! The fans are all fired up but refs hurry to stop this! Fans boo and chant “LET THEM FIGHT!” but this only has to wait one more week! Who will really bring that Latina Heat to the last NXT before Vengeance Day?

 

Tony D’Angelo speaks.

Via video on Twitter/X, The Don captions the video, “OTM YOU JUST MADE A BIG MISTAKE,” while Tony tells them to listen up and listen good. They wanna come into his restaurant and tear the place up? They made a big mistake. Stacks says to have eyes on the back of your heads! Tony warns Bronco, Lucien, Scrypts, and Rizzo adds Jaida to that! “Things’re about to get real interesting for you. We’ll see you soon.” The D’Angelo Family is coming, will they make OTM regret every getting out the mud?

 

NXT checks in with Chase U.

It seems things are only getting worse, as the school now has to sell off much of their supplies to make ends meet. The sporting equipment, school shirts and posters, and even Mr. Chase’s favorite whiteboard, all gone! Riley Osborne walks up to Mr. Chase and apologizes. He wanted to be at this school so bad, and- No, not the banner! Aww… As he was saying, Riley feels bad for failing them in the Breakout Tournament and Dusty Cup. Chase says no, he was the one that failed the school. Wait, even the desks!? With nowhere to sit now, most of the students leave.

Duke hangs back to tell Chase that this is all just stuff. It can be replaced. Wait, his MVP trophy!? HEY!! You can’t just…! They took the trophy…? Without the trophy, without Chase U… Duke knows he’ll spiral quick. Chase says he never thought he’d see the day. Everything he worked so hard to build is going to be gone so fast. He has nothing left. Wait, the podium?! GET YOUR DAMN HANDS OFF HIS PODIUM!! Duke calms Mr. Chase down, and the podium is taken away. Well, guess that’s it. They had a good run. But next week, Chase U officially says goodbye. They look around at the empty classroom. Class dismissed, but is it for the last time?

 

Dragon Lee VS SCRYPTS w/ OTM!

But speaking of, it would seem the Boy Wonder also has Reggie on his case. Will Dragon flip the Scrypts and show he is worthy of going back for the North American Championship? Or will OTM’s Pro of Prose write a different ending?

NXT returns as Scrypts makes his entrance, OTM by his side. The bell rings and fans rally up for Dragon as he circles with Scrypts. They tie up, Dragon wrenches and wristlocks, but Scrypts rolls, rolls back, kips up, only for Dragon  to wrench again. Scrypts goes to ropes, Dragon lets go, and the fans applaud. Scrypts runs up, Dragon dodges, and we see Oba Femi watching from the perch! Dragon headlocks for a takeover, and he spots Oba for himself now. Scrypts fights up, powers out, but Dragon runs him over! Things speed up, Scrypts hurdles but Dragon leaps over. They keep going, and Scrypts handsprings to dodge the lariat!

Fans fire up, Dragon DROPKICKS Scrypts down! Scrypts bails out, Dragon FLIES! Direct hit at the ramp and the fans fire up again! Dragon drags Scrypts up and into the ring, then runs in at the corner to JUMP KICK! Leg sweep, SWINGING DROPKICK! Fans fire up for Combinacion Dragon, and then Dragon runs in to HYDRAULIC DROPKICK! Cover, TWO! Scrypts is still in this but Dragon drags him back up. Dragon whips, Scrypts holds ropes then bails out. Fans boo but Dragon figures he’ll just handspring up and out! Even Scrypts is stunned! Scrypts takes a swing but Dragon counter punches!

Dragon puts Scrypts in, RAMS into him, and then goes up and up, only for Scrypts to GAMANGIRI! Dragon falls, Scrypts builds speed and he FLYING SOMERSAULT SEATED SENTONS! Fans fire up, Scrypts puts Dragon in, and Scrypts hurries up top. Scrypts leaps to FROG-CROSSBODY! Cover, TWO! Dragon stays in this but Scrypts stays on him with CLUBBING shots over and over! Scrypts says OTM’s eating good, and then he brings Dragon up. Dragon throws body shots, runs, but into a SOBAT! Front kick! Snapmare, and Scrypts basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Scrypts taunts Dragon, pushes him around, then has him on ropes.

Scrypts talks more trash, and SLAPS Dragon! Dragon glares, ROCKS Scrypts over and over, then whips him to ropes. Scrypts reverses but Dragon CLOBBERS him! Dragon keeps moving to CLOBBER Scrypts again! ENZUGIRI! Then TORNADO DDT! Fans fire up while Scrypts is down! OTM freaks out, Bronco distracts, and Scrypts BOOTS! But Dragon BOOTS! Dragon GERMAN SUPLEXES but Scrypts lands out of it! Scrypts swings, Dragon slips through it, and Dragon reels Scrypts in! Scrypts slips free of the powerbomb, but Dragon V-TRIGGERS! Dragon runs, but into a SPANISH FLY!! Both men are down and the fans fire up!

And then here comes The D’Angelo Family! Fans fire up as Tony & Stacks brawl with Price & Nima, leaving Rizzo to go right for Jaida! It is chaos at ringside all over again, and Rizzo DIVES to take Jaida out!! Fans fire up, Dragon gives Scrypts OPERACION DRAGON!! Cover, Dragon wins!

Winner: Dragon Lee, by pinfall

Oba gets a mic to call out Dragon. Oba has made his decision! “I’ll see you… at VENGEANCE DAY!” Dragon nods, and now we will get a true match out of these two. Will the Boy Wonder be golden once again? Or will Oba continue to be The Ruler of North America?

 

Malik Blade & Edris Enofe sit backstage.

Malik has his head in his hands while Edris says he spent hours making them their Dusty Rhodes polka dot gear, and for what? For them to lose? Malik doesn’t get it. What else do they need to do? Brinley Reece then jumps in and asks what’s up! She is feeling the most grateful ever today! How they feeling? Brin, what’re you so happy about? She got thrown out of the battle royal super early. No, no, they only lose when they don’t learn. There is a lesson in every opportunity, and when you stay #BrinActive, you dig the positives out of every opportunity you get. She wrote in her wellness journal, reflected on it, and worked out a ton! Now, she’s excited for her next opporutnity!

Uh, okay… Good for her, but these two can’t catch a break. They don’t need any journals, they don’t need any reflecting, and at this point, they need luck. No, no, no, she has seen this before, and it doesn’t turn out well. So they’re gonna write down five things they liked about their match, five things they didn’t like about it, and then reflect. YES! Brin CHOPS Edris then cartwheels away! Five…? Malik figures they might as well try. Will Brin’s positive attitude (not) be able to revitalize even Malik & Edris?

 

Lyra Valkyria watches film on her tablet.

The video finishes, she stands up with the belt, and Tatum Paxley barges in, startling her! Tatum says last week, being Lyra’s tag partner was the highlight of her whole career! Lyra says yeah, they need to talk. Tatum knows, she lost the battle royal! She’s so sorry that Lyra has to have a match now. No, not that. The thing is, Tatum’s a really… “special” kind of girl. And last week was a one time thing, okay? This isn’t gonna work out. Roxanne is coming after the title, there’s a lot going on, Lyra just doesn’t have time to respond to all of the texts, emails and voicemails Tatum leaves her.

Tatum says if anyone understands Lyra, it’s her. She totally gets it, it isn’t Lyra, it’s Roxanne. All of Lyra’s focus is on Roxanne, so Tatum gets it. Great! Amazing! Thanks! Okay, glad they’re on the same page. Lyra heads out and Tatum says of course they’re on the same page. Um, are we sure Tatum is even in the same library? Or is she going to misread this whole situation?

 

Blair Davenport VS Karmen Petrovic!

Speaking of that battle royal, the Ichiban Gaijin did not appreciate one of the new kids eliminating her early, and made sure that new kid would lose early, too. Now it’s all about payback, will Karmen make this into #KillBlair? Or will she instead learn to beware of the heir?

NXT returns and Karmen makes her entrance. The bell rings and Blair rushes in! Karmen dodges, KICKS Blair’s leg, and eggs her on. Blair swings again, Karmen dodges to KCIK! Blair avoids another shot, then they tie up. Blair KNEES low, ROCKS Karmen, then whips. Karmen ducks ‘n’ dodges to slide and trip Blair up! Oklahoma Roll, TWO! Karmen KICKS Blair in the stomach! Blair sputters, but she ELBOWS Karmen away. Blair goes up to DOUBLE STOMP Karmen down! Fans fire up and Blair brings Karmen up to whip her to a corner. Then back into the corner! Then a third time into the corner!

Blair scoops Karmen to hit a BACKBREAKER! Cover, TWO! Blair keeps on Karmen with a chinbar, and she shifts to bend Karmen back! Fans rally, Karmen endures, and Karmen fights up. Blair knees low, whips her to a corner, then scoops her, but Karmen slips free! Karmen O’Conner Rolls, TWO! Blair stands but Karmen KCIKS! And KICKS! And KICKS! Karmen fires up, runs and CLOBBERS Blair! And again! Karmen spins to LARIAT! The fans fire up as Karmen wants Blair to get up again. Blair goes to a corner, Karmen runs in to ROUNDHOUSE! Karmen pushes Blair down, but Blair avoids the rolling kick!

Blair hauls Karmen up but Karmen slips free again! Karmen kicks, Blair blocks, but Karmen SPIN BACK KICKS! Cover, TWO! Blair survives Karmen literally turning things around on her, and goes to another corner. Karmen runs in but Blair dodges! Karmen gets caught up in the ropes, and Blair SHOTGUNS her down! Blair hauls Karmen up, suplexes, FALCON ARROW! Then the wristlocks and KAMI-GOYE!! Cover, Blair wins!

Winner: Blair Davenport, by pinfall

Another singles win for dangerous Davenport, and she’s looking to keep going. Will she be waiting for the champion on the other side of Vengeance Day?

 

Backstage interview with Ridge Holland.

Kelly Kincaid is with Ridge and notes his big win over Joe Coffey. But then after, Gallus jumped him and had some rather choice words for him. Ridge says yeah, they rubbed in that he has no friends, that he has no one to save him. They used the numbers game and he got his arse handed to him. Then why doesn’t Ridge ask for help? And what? Prove Joe Coffey right? Listen, he stepped away from the Brawling Brutes to prove himself and stand on his own two feet. All Gallus has done is galvanized Ridge. He simply has another hurdle in front of him on his journey of redemption. Thank you for the chat, Kelly.

Wait, Ridge, hold on. Does that mean he is going to take on Gallus by himself? Well, yeah. That’s exactly what he’s saying. Ridge Da Fridge heads out, but will Northern Grit be able to win the numbers game when it’s 3v1? Or will it ALWAYS be Gallus Boys On Top?

 

Ilja Dragunov heads to ringside!

The NXT Champion wants to see Trick Williams and Josh Briggs have it out, so he’s going to join commentary for tonight’s main event. Will we see the #1 contender build momentum towards the title match? Or will Briggs be the one to #WhoopDatTrick?

Trick Williams VS Josh Briggs!

NXT returns and Briggs makes his entrance, followed by Trick’s. The bell rings and the two tie up. Briggs powers Trick to ropes, then swings, but Trick dodges. Trick and Briggs egg each other on, tie up again, and Trick headlocks. Briggs powers up and out to ELBOW Trick! Briggs scoops and SLAMS Trick, then drops the ELBOW! Cover, TWO! Dragunov says that since he has the opportunity, he has to say it clearly: he is the Mad Dragon, he fights upfront, face to face. He does not attack anyone out of nowhere, random and cowardly. Briggs puts Trick in a corner and tells Ilja to watch this! Briggs throws heavy elbows into Trick!

Briggs then whips Trick corner to corner, but Trick BOOTS back! Trick fires hands, but Briggs knees low. Briggs whips, Trick reverses and DROPKICKS! Briggs staggers, into a scoop and SLAM! Trick fires up, he scoops and SLAMS again! Fans fire up with Trick and he storms up on Briggs in a corner. But Briggs ROCKS Trick first! Trick wobbles, Briggs runs, and Briggs BOOTS Trick down! Briggs then CHOKE URENAGES!! Cover, TWO!! Trick survives and flops out of the ring, Dragunov wants him to get up. Dragunov says if Trick’s struggling here, he has no chance against Dragunov for the title.

Trick sits up while NXT goes picture in picture. Dragunov keeps coaching Trick up but Briggs storms out to ROCK Trick! Briggs SMACKS Trick off the apron, then paces around. Trick sits up again but Briggs brings him around to put him in the ring. Briggs storms up and BOOTS Trick down! Briggs CLUBS Trick, eggs him on, and stands on Trick’s hand! The ref reprimands, Briggs lets off to bring Trick up for a BIG suplex! Cover, TWO! Briggs looms over Trick, then clamps on a chinlock. Trick endures, fights around, and the fans rally up. Briggs leans on the hold but Trick still fights up. Trick throws body shots but Briggs CLUBS him!

Briggs whips, Trick sunset flips, TWO! Trick and Briggs stand, Briggs CLOBBERS Trick back down! Cover, TWO! Briggs pushes Trick around, talks more trash, then drags Trick up to CLUB him back down! Trick throws body shots but Briggs clamps on the chinlock. NXT returns to single picture and Briggs thrashes Trick around. Fans fire up as Trick fights up, and he throws body shots! Trick ROCKS Briggs, runs, but into a SCRAPBUSTER! Cover, TWO! Briggs snarls and he sits Trick up to basement dropkick! Fans rally, even Dragunov is shaking watching this, and Briggs stands Trick up. Trick throws hands!

Trick ROCKS Briggs but Briggs knees low! Briggs whips, runs up but Trick dodges! Briggs hits buckles, Trick bobs ‘n’ weaves to ROCK Briggs, but Briggs hits back. They brawl with fast hands, Trick gets the edge and the UPPERCUT! Trick whips, Briggs reverses but Trick LEAPING LARIATS! Fans fire up again as Trick LEG LARIATS! And LEG LARIATS again! Fans fire up and Trick FLAPJACKS Briggs! Trick lets the hair down, he takes aim from the corner, SPIN- NO, Briggs blocks the kick to scoop and SIDEWALK SLAM! SPLASH! Cover, TWO! The fans fire up, Briggs clamps onto Trick and whips him to a corner.

Trick hits buckles, Briggs runs in, heads collide! Both men fall, Dragunov tells Trick to fight for this! If Trick wants to be champion, then he has to fight! Briggs runs in, Trick dodges, the BOOT blasts Dragunov over the desk!! Trick’s CYCLONE KICK takes Briggs out!! Fans fire up and Trick puts Briggs in! The fans are all fired up as Trick climbs! But Dragunov wants in now, pissed off at Briggs! But MELO stops Dragunov!! Trick LEAPS, but into Briggs’ hand! Trick victory rolls it, Trick wins!!

Winner: Trick Williams, by pinfall

But Briggs CLOTHESLINE FROM HELL!?! Fans boo as Briggs is a sore loser! Melo is stunned, he didn’t think he’d have to save Trick from Briggs! As for Dragunov, he rises, his rage now aimed at Melo! Refs hurry to stop Dragunov, and Trick is just as upset with Melo for once again not honoring his request! Dragunov is taken away by refs, will he get his hands on Melo one way or another? Is Trick Melo Gang about to fall apart at the seams, so close to having everything?

 

Thea Hail & Jacy Jayne meet backstage.

Thea is stressing out, because Chase U is her life. It gave her everything, taught her everything, and now it’s gone… Jacy says no, it’s not. She is still workshopping her solution. But then Lexis walks over and says if the ladies need a shoulder to cry on, lean on the shoulders of a winner. Uh, no, Thea’s good. Well, maybe she’d feel better if she told Lexis what he could do to cheer her up. But Riley storms over and tells Lexis to back off. Riley, you’re such a buzzkill. Yeah, well, these ladies don’t want anything to do with the likes of you. Well, talk about going from hero to zero. Says the zero! Riley is Thea’s hero! Er, uh, Chase U’s hero!

Thea thanks Riley for that, and he says no problem. He’s just sorry they had to deal with Lexis. It’s okay. Well, no, it’s not, but it is okay now that Riley’s here. Yeah, it has been a rough day, huh? But hey, can Riley and Thea get a second alone later? Just to chat. Oh, yeah, Thea’s okay with that. Okay, see you later. Riley leaves and Thea has a small freak out. Jacy says she knows Thea is new to this, but she’s gotta keep it cool. Be a grown ass woman, remember? Right, grown ass woman. Thea takes a few breaths, will she be able to find something good in all this Chase U drama?

 

No Quarter Catch Crew speaks.

Drew Gulak says, “There is no great success without great sacrifice. The No Quarter Catch Crew consists of four strangers bound by the sacrifices we’ve made in the name of this great sport.” Charlie Dempsey says, “In this squared circle, it isn’t about friendships, it’s about four men uniting as one by athletic purity and against entertainment.” Damon Kemp says, “The art of what we do, what we train our bodies to endure, goes unappreciated by the masses. But we are not in it for the fleeting acknowledgement. We rejoice in our unrelenting devotion to this sport. Because your breaking point is our starting line.”

Myles Borne says, “This constant defines us.” Gulak says every time they compete in NXT, they invoke “The Catch Clause.” That clause says they determine who wrestlers the match for NQCC. And in NXT, they will show no pity, no mercy, no remorse, and no quarter.

 

Trick Melo Gang regroups backstage.

Trick is mad with Melo but Melo says Dragunov was coming after Trick! Trick says no he wasn’t, but Melo’s convinced he was! Trick doesn’t believe Dragunov is playing him?! No, Dragunov’s straight up! Melo doesn’t believe that. What about with Corbin, huh? Dragunov was messing with Corbin, now he’s messing with Trick! When’s Trick gonna see it? Trick is the hottest thing out there and Dragunov knows he can’t beat Trick, so that’s why he’s doing all this! Wake up! Melo storms off, and Trick wonders if he’s got a point. Can Trick Melo Gang pull together and beat the LWO to go to the Dusty Cup Finals?

 

BREAKING NEWS for Vengeance Day!

After the attack at the restaurant and the brawl here tonight, The D’Angelo Family and OTM are going 3v3 in a MIXED SIX TAG! Will The Don, Stacks & Rizz handle biz against Bronco, Lucien & Jaida? Or will there be a new crew running the streets?

 

Ava Raine is already in the ring.

The new NXT GM is here, and she says with the Royal Rumble this Saturday, January 27th, and NXT Vengeance Day on Sunday, February 4th, “all eyes are on NXT right now.” That said, she would like to introduce two superstars who will be competing for the NXT Women’s Championship. Firstly, the challenger, Roxanne Perez! Fans cheer as The Prodigy makes her way out and joins Ava in the ring. And now, the NXT Women’s Champion, Lyra Valkyria! Fans cheer as The Morrigan makes her entrance to join everyone in the ring. They all take their seats at the table, and Ava says there are some big expectations for this match. All that’s left is to sign and make it official.

Roxie says they should get all the respect stuff out of the way, since we know they both respect each other. More importantly, Roxie thinks this is a Stand & Deliver main event a couple months early. Lyra agrees, this match is what everyone wants to see. Lyra almost feels they’ve been on parallel paths these last 12 months. The day Roxie won this title was the same day Lyra made her debut here. Then this must be a match a year in the making. And Roxie’s been wanting to say this to Lyra’s face: Lyra has had an incredible run. Lyra is THE NXT Women’s Champion, the best woman in the best division in ALL of WWE!

But… It feels a little familiar to Roxie, because she was exactly where Lyra was just one year ago. This past year, everyone has witnessed the rise of Lyra while Roxie has had to pick herself back up, jump over every hurdle, dig deeper, and chase down the title she never truly lost in the first place. Fans cheer that! Roxie vows that at Vengeance Day, no more Triple Threats, Fatal 4 Ways, battle royals, or other stipulations. She finally gets a 1v1 title match. And when she wins, that will mean every single thing she went through was worth it. And Lyra… Well, she’ll travel down the road Roxie just walked on to get back to her and her title.

Fans cheer, but Lyra says Roxie shouldn’t act like Lyra hasn’t been watching her. Lyra watched Roxie grow from this little girl just happy to be here into this confident woman that isn’t afraid to snap when her buttons are pushed. And Lyra isn’t trying to push any buttons, but she’ll tell Roxie the truth. Roxie had a great run, but Lyra’s replaced her. Lyra replaced Roxie at the top of this division. And Lyra knows Roxie’s gonna bring this new, edgy Roxie to Vengeance Day. The edgy Roxie that walked on glass to get here. Good. Lyra needs that Roxie. Because the last person Lyra needs to prove this is HER division to… is Roxie.

And at Vengeance Day, that is exactly what will happen. Then, the last 12 months for Roxie will mean nothing. Oh, so confident, Lyra. Trust Roxie, she sounded exactly the same. Just another show, just another challenger. But Roxie will give Lyra some advice, because this is what’s gonna happen: Lyra’s gonna lose, and then that is when the real questions start to begin. “Is Lyra overrated? Was it too fast, too soon?” Because some days, the people won’t be with her. And some days, they’re even gonna BOO her! Fans boo that, and Roxie asks if Lyra can handle that. Because it is so easy to handle it when everything is going right!

It’s fine now while Lyra is on the posters, the trucks, the billboards, but when Roxie becomes champion again, and she will, will Lyra be able to rebuild like Roxie did? Or will she crumble? Lyra knows what Roxie is getting at, and she is wrong! Lyra has always been mentally and physically table than Roxie. Where Roxie crumbles, that is where Lyra triumphs! Lyra may have been following behind Roxie, but after Vengeance Day, Roxie will stay behind Lyra! Ava keeps these two from getting physical, they are going to save it for Vengeance Day. Right now, they’re gonna sign the contract. Fans cheer Ava showing her authority!

Roxie and Lyra put the mics down and then Lyra takes the pen. She signs her part, pushes the contract at Roxie, and Roxie signs her part. That makes it official! At Vengeance Day, we get Lyra VS Roxie for the NXT Women’s Championship, “good luck to you both.” Ava steps aside while these two stare down. They shake hands, but then Lyra raises the belt. Will the Morrigan stay on top of the mountain? Or will Roxie knock her down from her perch? Wait! Tatum is slithering out from under the table!! She sneaks up on Roxie, to then pick her up and SPINEBUSTER through the table!! Lyra freaks out, as do the fans, but Tatum hugs Lyra like this was their plan!

Lyra asks what the hell! Tatum thought this is what Lyra was talking about earlier! Lyra tells Tatum to stay away!! What has Tatum’s obsession just done to the Vengeance Day title match?!


My Thoughts:

A great NXT that felt like half a go-home for Vengeance Day. And the theme for tonight seemed to be utter chaos at ringside. Gacy VS Dijak never actually happening was great stuff, those two busting up the desk and the wall and still not staying down. I would think these two need a Street Fight or Last Man Standing match to settle things. Really good stuff in the D’Angelos VS OTM story, especially with their own brawl to set up the Mixed Six while helping Dragon Lee win and compel Oba Femi into giving him a title rematch. As great as Dragon is, I feel like this is gonna be another win for Oba to establish how powerful he is, because he is.

Lexis King beating Trey Bearhill was a bit of a surprise, but it feeds his ego and helps him segue to a feud with Riley Osborne. Really good stuff out of Chase U tonight, being both hilarious but also a little sad. Jacy’s super secret idea still needs to be revealed, maybe that happens at Vengeance Day or something like that. Good promo from Malik & Edris with Brinley Reece, but I’m not sure where this is going. Either they drag her down into being pessimistic, or  more likely the team splits up when Malik sees things Brin’s way and Edris doesn’t. And good match from Blair VS Karmen, but of course Blair wins that one.

Good promo from Wren with Fallon, really good match of Wren VS Lash, but it made sense Lash won there. Fallon seems to have found herself a new tag partner, and they’ll have a good match against Lash & Jakara. Really good stuff from Lopez and Lola tonight, and it is a bit surprising how well and how quickly they flipped the Face-Heel dynamics. Lola still has plenty of fans in NXT, but going by her betrayal and Lopez burning her tonight, Lola easily comes off the Heel now as they are set to have a match next week. There’s a good chance Lopez wins to hurt Lola’s momentum and put into question whether Lola will try and cash in.

And speaking of the women’s title, great stuff from Lyra and Roxie, and even Tatum. Very outside the box thinking of Tatum hiding under that table the entire contract signing segment, and then her being the one putting Roxie through the table. Not sure how this affects the go-home math, but I would think Roxie at least wants a match with Tatum for the go-home to add to things. Also, interesting move having Roxie go from Assistant (to the) GM to THE GM of NXT. I wonder if this means HBK is becoming HHH’s right hand man on RawDown, if in kayfabe at least. And great to see William Regal on screen again. He’s been back in WWE for a little while, so it’s good to see him make the return official.

Awesome opening match from Bron & Corbin VS Axiom & Frazer. I figured the Wolf Dogs would win, but the fans loved all four guys in that match. And at this point, it is practically a given Bron & Corbin win the Dusty Cup. With how Trick Melo Gang was going tonight, they might not even beat LWO next week in the go-home, and I definitely don’t see LWO winning the Cup. Great stuff out of Trick VS Briggs, with Melo really deflecting hard onto Dragunov. Everything Melo said about Dragunov being afraid of Trick’s success and wanting to stop it can apply to Melo for the moment Melo pulls his “It was ME, Austin!” promo on Trick. Vengeance Day is going to be some really strong stuff for NXT not just for going into WrestleMania season but for 2024 overall.

My Score: 8.8/10

Hobbs moves the other set of steps around, brings Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into railing! Hobbs asks Kevin Kelley what he’s going on about but Kevin isn’t sure Hobbs means. Hobbs tells Kevin to stand up so Kevin does, and then Hobbs demands Kevin hand over his belt. His belt? Hobbs tells him again, give over the belt. Kevin gives in and hands said belt over. Hobbs then takes the belt and uses it to LASH Sammy on the back! Fans are torn but Hobbs LASHES Sammy again!

Sammy writhes, Nigel tells Kevin this is his fault. Hobbs winds up, Sammy dodges the belt to SUPERKICK! And SUPERKICK again! Sammy grabs a chair, and he SMACKS Hobbs with it! And then HEADSHOT!

Sammy then goes looking under the ring, and he brings out a table! The fans fire up as Sammy sets the table up nearby. Sammy has security move aside, so he can slide that chair off the table and into Hobbs! Sammy then adds another table! If one is good, more must be better! The fans fire up with Sammy as he has those side by side. Hobbs goes to the apron but Sammy climbs up. Sammy aims and leaps, but Hobbs catches him again!! And he SPINEBUSTERS Sammy through the tables!!! All of Springfield, Missouri lose their minds while the ref checks on both men, and Collision goes picture in picture!

Hobbs snarls as he slowly rises up out of the wreckage. Sammy stirs but Hobbs clears out the debris to bring him up. Hobbs HEADBUTTS Sammy and Sammy staggers away. Sammy gets in the ring but Hobbs pursues. Hobbs climbs the corner?! Hobbs then FLYING LARIATS! The Powerhouse proves he can fly, then he covers, TWO!! Sammy survives but Hobbs grinds him into the mat! Hobbs talks trash on Sammy while he fishhooks the nose and pulls on the ear! Hobbs then drags Sammy up, whips him to a corner hard, and Sammy drops to his knees. Hobbs looms over Sammy, eggs him on, and the fans rally up.

Hobbs talks more trash, stands Sammy back up, and Hobbs whips Sammy hard into another corner! Collision returns to single picture as Sammy crawls around. Hobbs looms over Sammy again, slaps him around, and then whips him into another corner! Hobbs runs up, Sammy dodges and Hobbs hits buckles! Sammy uses the corner to help in the torture rack!

The fans are thunderous, this might be the most tables in a non-table match! Hobbs hauls Sammy up, scoops him, and aims, but Sammy slips free to POST Hobbs first! Sammy fires up again while Hobbs staggers around. Sammy chugs a fan’s beer, then SMASHES Hobbs with the bottle!

The fans are loving it, because now we’ve entered TLC territory! Sammy gets that ladder in the ring while the fans lose their minds!

The fans lose their minds all over again as the ref checks Sammy. Sammy gets Hobbs up and into the ring and the fans fire up again. “This is Awesome!” as Sammy takes table number three and sets it back up!

Sammy is stuck on the top rope and Hobbs snarls as he storms up after him! Hobbs brings Sammy up for the scoop! WORLD’S STRONGEST SLAM THROUGH THE TABLE!! Cover, Hobbs wins!!

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?

 

FTR VS Shane Taylor Promotions!

Dax Harwood & Cash Wheeler are ready for another fight with the BCC, but for right now, they’ve got the STP! Will the #TopGuys still be FTR? Or will Lee Moriarty & Shane Taylor himself prove they’re in that conversation now?

The teams sort out and Dax starts against #TAIGASTYLE. Lee and Dax tie up, Lee waistlocks and headlocks, then wrenches to hammerlock. Lee shoves Dax then claps at him, but Dax keeps it cool. Dax tags Cash, Cash runs up but Lee avoids him. The two feel things out, tie up and go around, then break the deadlock. They reset, tie up again, and Lee wrenches to spin Cash and wrangle him. Lee steps over, has La Magistrol, TWO! Lee pushes Cash around and then dances at him. Cash storms up but Lee backs off. Lee smirks at Cash then resets with him. They tie up, Lee headlocks, but Cash powers out.

Cash drops, drops, and hurdles to then ELBOW Lee down! Then arm-drag! Cash has the armlock and he slaps Lee around. Cash tags Dax, whips Lee, drop toehold and elbow drop! Fans rally up and Dax brings Lee up. Dax wrenches but Lee powers him to the corner! Tag to Shane but Dax gets away. Shane and Dax circle, talk some trash, and tie up.

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?

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.”

Priest survives and somewhere, Trent Seven is disappointed! The fans are still thunderous, and Dunne tags Bate. They get Priest with furious fists from all sides! 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!! Dunne roars, he hauls Priest up and Bate joins in. They both climb up to bring Priest up, but Finn anchors Priest’s foot! 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! Lashley himself says that sucked, because his arm is hurting. The fans chant, “Thank You, Bobby!” for what he just did to Logan. But McIntyre CLAYMORES Lashley down!! McIntyre drags Lashley into the ring, Knight is there to haul Lashley up.

Knight hits a torture rack, but Lashley slips free! HURT LOCK, but Knight fights free! Lashley CLUBS Knight, but the bad arm is bothering him. CLAYMORE AGAIN!!!

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!

McIntyre crawls to cover, McIntyre wins!!

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall (NEW #1 contender to the World Heavyweight Championship)

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!

Rhea endures as Nia stands and has her hanging over the mat! Rhea fights, but Nia shifts right to a HALF CRAB! Rhea endures as Nia kneels on her neck! Rhea still fights her way around, but Nia HIP DROPS her down! Nia soaks up more heat, then mocks Rhea reaching out for her family. 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. Nia climbs again, but Rhea scrambles up to SHOVE Nia down! Nia falls to the apron bug holds onto ropes!

Winner: Rhea Ripley, by pinfall (still WWE Women’s World Champion)

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
