Opening Segment

Adam Cole says they are not just fighters, they are givers and says he made Oney Lorcan famous. He is the answer to the question of who did Adam Cole beat in his first North American Title defence. Kyle talks about Danny Burch sticking his nose in there. Roderick says he will face his old best friend Pete Dunne. What he did to him at Takeover will be pale in comparison to what he is going to do tonight. They are unbeatable, they are unstoppable, they are Undisputed.

Match Number One: Kairi Sane versus Shazza McKenzie

They shake hands before locking up and Shazza sends some love to Kairi and she lets it go. Sane with a roll-up for a near fall. Sane with a head scissors takedown but Shazza with a forearm. Sane with a series of double chops. Sane with a spear and then she marches into the corner for the sliding D. Sane goes up top and hits a forearm. Sane with an Alabama Slam and she goes up top for the elbow drop and hits it for the three count.

Winner: Kairi Sane

After the match, Lacey Evans makes her way to the ring and she has something to say.

Lacey says a true lady with class has the courage to admit when they are wrong. Lacey says with everything in her and everything she stands for, she is sorry. From the Mae Young Classic to the match that you just had, you do belong here in NXT. From one legitimate lady to another, she hopes that Kairi can accept her apology.

Lacey offers her hand and Sane is not sure of what to do. Lacey with a punch and Sane goes down.

We are shown footage from last week’s heinous attack by Tommaso Ciampa on Johnny Gargano.

Cathy Kelley is with Candice LeRae and she asks about Johnny’s condition. Candice says it hasn’t been an easy year. She was so optimistic at the beginning of the year being at NXT with her husband. Then a person who they thought was family stops at nothing to destroy her husband’s career. She says they thought they were done with this. She cries and says that she had to see them stretcher her husband out . . . Candice cannot continue and she leaves.

We have a video package for Lars Sullivan. From day one he has been the man in NXT. There are two certainties. He will obtain what he desires and it will come at someone’s expense. In New Orleans, he touched the North American title belt. Everyone in that match can mark themselves for destruction. The Era of Destruction begins.

Match Number Two: Montez Ford and Angelo Dawkins versus Shane Thorne and Nick Miller

Ford and Miller start things off and Miller with a wrist lock. Ford with a reversal. Ford flips over Miller and hits a spinning heel kick. Dawkins tags in and he hits a shoulder tackle. Ford is sent into Thorne and Miller with a double dropkick with help from Dawkins. Dawkins with a bulldog and he misses the corkscrew splash. Miller with a belly-to-back suplex and Thorne with a slingshot senton. Miller tags back in and they hit a double back elbow. Thorne with a standing moonsault while Miller hits a fist drop and Miller gets a near fall.

Miller with a reverse chin lock. Dawkins with a kick and both men with clotheslines and both go down. Ford and Thorne tag in and Ford with clotheslines and then he knocks Miller off the apron. Ford with a back elbow and he is sent to the apron. Ford with a chop from the apron and he kicks Miller. Ford with a sunset flip but Thorne rolls through and has some help from Miller for the three count.

Winners: Nick Miller and Shane Thorne

We have a Tale of the Tape for Heavy Machinery and the War Raiders. Then we have a video package. Rowe says it is the same story everywhere they go. The war starts with Heavy Machinery.

They will face off in the ring next week.

We have a video package for Kona Reeves. He says that everyone will call him The Finest.

We are back and Kassius Ohno is asked about Ciampa and Gargano. Ohno says he has known Johnny for more than 10 years and he knows what kind of person he is. He knows what kind of person Tommaso Ciampa has become. He is an opportunistic coward. When he saw Johnny being stretchered out of that building, he knew that Tommaso Ciampa has to feel that helpless. Ohno says the person to do it is him.

Match Number Three: Kona Reeves versus Patrick Scott

They lock up and Reeves with a clean break and he has something to say to Scott. They lock up again and Reeves with a knee to the midsection followed by a forearm to the back. Reeves sends Scott into the turnbuckles. Scott floats over in the corner and he has an armbar. Reeves with a back elbow. Reeves with kicks in the corner followed by forearms. Reeves with a gutwrench suplex and then he goes to the turnbuckles and hits an elbow drop. Reeves with a Samoan Drop for the three count.

Winner: Kona Reeves

We have a video feature from EC3. He says the sequel is always better than the original. Next week, he will make his NXT TV debut. He will transcend NXT into NX3.

We are back and Dakota Kai was interviewed by the media. She says the Women’s Evolution is growing with Ember Moon on Raw. She says the Iconic Duo have made an impact on Smackdown. That means more opportunities on NXT. Dakota is asked if she is intimidated by Shayna Baszler. Dakota does not want to talk about Shayna.

Vanessa Borne interrupts and she says the way that Dakota is dealing with Shayna is pathetic. If it was her, she would slap the hell out of Shayna. She is not afraid of Dakota and she is not afraid of Shayna.

Dakota says she is not afraid of Vanessa.

Match Number Four: Candice LeRae versus Bianca Belair

They lock up and Belair with a waist lock and take down. They lock up again and Belair with a side headlock. Belair with a shoulder tackle and she tries for a slam but Candice gets to her feet. Candice with a headscissors and rollup and bridge for a near fall. Candice misses a forearm in the corner and goes for a cross body but Bianca catches Candice and slams her for a near fall.

Let's have a look at the best weekly wrestling show in the world! Now I will
admit I passed on writing a recap for last week's episode after Dakota Kai
was made to look like a pathetic weakling...so lets hope they don't do that
again this week.


Let's Begin...

+ Hello Undisputed Era...

+ And we open with Kairi Sane vs. An Australian Jobber?! WTF?! Really?
~ God...Kairi's music does nothing more me...
~ Shazza is such a bogan name...
~ Wow...this match has been awkward as hell...
~ Thank the Hive that was short...
~ And Lacey Evans is here?
~ Hey I have an idea...lets put Kairi in Lacey's outfit!
~ And Lacey lays out Kairi Sane...Ugh...

+ A recap of the Ciampa/Gargano attack from last week...
~ Candice LaRae interview...& she's a good little actress...that was really
well done...

+ I have to say that the more I see of Lars Sullivan...the less I'm impressed...

+ And now its time for the Street Profits vs. TM61...and this should at least
be an interesting match...
~ Do the Street Profits remind anyone else of Harlem Heat?
~ And TM61 get the win by cheating...and I honestly don't care.

+ And a nice video package building to a "Battle of the Beef" match between
War Raiders & Heavy Machinery next week. Time for a Hoss Fight!

+ Kona Reeves reminds me a sleazy car salesman...

+ Kassius Ohno interview...

+ There's another jobber in the ring! Get out of there! Couldn't they give the
Blobfish a job in NXT? So our next match is Kona Reeves vs. Patrick Scott...
~ Did you guys hear that guy yell out "You Suck!" I agree...
~ I don't want to watch Jobber vs. Jobber matches...


+ EC3 vignette...

to the strip club Vanessa!!!

+ Next up is Candice LaRae vs. Bianca Belair...
~ Okay...straight up I have to admit I don't see the appeal of Bianca...I mean
sure she has hair Sasha Banks would kill for...but its just hair.
~ Someone is eventually going to tie Bianca Belair to a ring post or ropes with her
hair...and if I had to guess...it will be Shayna Baszler...
~ Jesus! That dead lift/Gorilla press was pretty impressive...I'll admit that...Nia Jax
should be doing those kind of moves...
~ Torture Rack! In fact...that's another move Nia Jax should be using...
~ Bianca Belair gets the win...but she needs a new finisher...

+ Nice...Kassius Ohno vs. Tommasa Ciampa for next week...

+ And now the main event...Pete Dunne vs. Roderick Strong...& I already do not
care because Cole & O'Reily are at ringside...
~ These two do have great chemistry...
~ I so want to see Pete Dunne eventually wrestle Seth Rollins & A.J Styles...
~ And a dirty finish...I fucking hate this kind of booking...
~ Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch make the save...and that's fine I guess...I
just hate "fucked" finishes is all.

All in All...it was Okay I guess...too many jobbers...not enough Pete Dunne
clean victories.

6 out of 10...

Overall, I really enjoyed the show. Kairi Sane opening was great for me, but I had no clue who the hell she was facing. The match was awkward kind of, but I blame that on Kairi's opponent, who seemed kind of green. Lacey vs Kairi, why? Just why?

Street Profits vs TM61 was good, though Street profits remind of Crime Time, and TM61 winning was okay.

Kona vs Patrick Scott, I just kind of tuned out because it was bland as white rice. Also, s/o to the guy who yelled you suck.

Why are you making Dakota look weak for? Why? And she got a match against Vanessa Bourne? Why?

Candice vs Bianca was decent, I thought Candice should have won, but overall it was okay. I just don't get how Bianace can use her hair and it not be counted as a weapon though.

Pete vs Rodrick was really good and I could watch these guys anytime. I can see this building to a six-man main event or something of the sort, which isn't bad.

Overall, I gave the show a 7/10. Kairi opening was great, some the promo packages were good, and Pete vs Rodrick was really good.
