Io Shirai and Zoey Stark def. Raquel González and Dakota Kai and Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon
Six of NXT’s top Superstars did their best in a high-octane triple threat tag team match, including a spectacular sequence that saw multiple competitors take to the skies in succession.
NXT Women’s Champion Raquel González protected her partner Dakota Kai from Io Shirai’s first moon jump attempt, but Sky Genie later found herself isolated with Kai, and the second time was the charm for the moon jump and the victory.
Shirai and Zoey Stark will challenge The Way for the NXT women’s tag team titles next week at NXT’s Great American Bash.
Roderick Strong def. Asher hale
The diamond mine is open to the public
The Backbreaker Messiah looked tremendous in his first fight in three months, and his first fight as a member of The Diamond Mine. Strong did a brief job with Asher Hale, tapping him with a unique submission, much to the satisfaction of Malcolm Bivens and company.
Defeat Cameron Grimes. Ari sterling
Ari Sterling showed potential for a massive upset with a spectacular offense, but a missed Shooting Star Press left him vulnerable to a collapse, and Cameron Grimes seized the opportunity.
The Technical Savage was unable to celebrate as LA Knight arrived at the Capitol Wrestling Center. Grimes extended the challenge for a rematch for the Million Dollar Championship – a Knight accepted on one condition: Grimes will have to serve as Knight’s butler if he again falls short.
Kyle O’Reilly made Adam Cole tap the heel hook
After last week’s melee match between Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole, NXT special enforcer Samoa Joe was wisely on the scene this week when O’Reilly called his former best friend. Cole claimed that O’Reilly was not only obsessed with him, but that Cole had carried him for four years on NXT, while O’Reilly stated that he was embarrassed to be associated with Cole.
Joe’s hopes of keeping them apart proved idyllic, as O’Reilly took advantage of Cole’s errant swing and locked himself in the Heel Hook, causing his archrival to shut down a week before they collided at Cole’s Great American Bash. NXT.
Mercedes Martinez made a costly mistake when she stepped out of the ring to throw the gauntlet at the menacing Mei Ying, only for Xia Li to capitalize and take control of the match. Li attacked Martinez with a devastating spinning heel kick, forcing a referee to stop.
Although they share respect, MSK and Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher had enough tension to be cut with a knife. Nash Carter took the opportunity to hit Ciampa first, but Ciampa cornered Thatcher, and The Blackheart called her “free” and informed MSK that they would not be so lucky in next week’s NXT Tag Team Championship Match.
Johnny Gargano attacked Karrion Kross throughout the night.
The issue between NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano appears to be far from resolved. First, Gargano & Austin Theory ambushed the doomsday destroyer, prompting Kross to later call out Johnny Wrestling. Gargano effectively taunted Kross as Theory attacked him from behind, though Kross ultimately won the match and sought to eliminate Gargano with the steel steps before security attacked him, only to be leveled by a Gargano superkick.
Once again, Gargano & Theory assaulted Kross, this time in the parking lot as Kross was getting into his car to drive away. With Kross seemingly down and out after being repeatedly smashed with his own car door, Kross resurfaced to take down Gargano with the Kross jacket.
In an unthinkable act, Kross apparently seemed determined to run Gargano over, only for Samoa Joe to pull Gargano out of harm’s way at the last minute.
Isaiah “Swerve” Scott def. Bronson Reed to become the new NXT North American Champion
After telling the NXT Universe for weeks, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott proved to the whole world that he really is built differently.
Although Bronson Reed controlled much of the fight, Scott refused to stay down and it finally paid off. After staying out of the ring for much of the fight, Hit Row made his presence felt, targeting The Colossal Superstar. Reed was ready, sending Top Dolla through the plexiglass of the ring in a shocking fashion before throwing Ashante “Thee” Adonis over the barricade as well.
But the time he spent on the outside allowed “Swerve” to recover, and he connected with the house call on Reed as he tried to get back in the ring. Following up with an astonishing 450 splash, Scott made the cover to win his first WWE Gold Championship.
