Here's a place to check results and comment along with the latest airing of WWE NXT in its regular Thursday night at 9PM Eastern time slot on WWE Network (see the first NOTE below regarding broadcast time). We'll have our regular reactions post later, but we'll post match results here. More importantly, this gives you Cagesiders a dedicated place to rave and/or bitch about whatever goes down on the show dedicated to WWE's Florida-based developmental program - as it airs!
Last week, Bull Dempsey took the hype out of Mojo Rawley again when he beat him quickly with a flying headbutt. In another Takeover 2 rematch, Certified G Enzo Amore got another win over the now hairless Marcus Louis, and the woman responsible for the cream that melted his doo, Carmella, started training at the Performance Center with Enzo and his pal, Big Cass. Bayley got a confidence re-establishing win over Alexa Bliss and called out the Women's champ for a rematch, which Charlotte accepted. Tyler Breeze also got some momentum back with a big win over Justin Gabriel, and Tyson Kidd also got a title shot thanks to some politicking from his wife, Natalya. And The Ascension came up short in their rematch for the tag titles when a distraction from Hideo Itami gave the Lucha Dragons the opening they needed to gain a pinfall - then Itami sent Konnor to the floor with some kicks.
This week...Not one, but two title matches, as both of the championship tilts set-up last week are happening this week! Bayley gets a second shot at Charlotte in a match that surely won't have any interference by a certain ratchet Boss, and Tyson gets his final chance at the NXT title - at least as long as Adrian Neville holds the belt. But, why read what I have to say about it when you can listen to a professional voiceover artist promote the show:
NOTE I: WWE Network is scheduled to release the show at 4PM Eastern time again this week, with a re-broadcast at 9PM. Out of respect for working folks, we'll still update results and treat the evening run as the "live" show for the open thread. If you watch earlier and want to comment, please treat it the same as you would spoilers, which are covered in...
NOTE II: Spoilers are out there for these pre-taped broadcasts, but yours truly and many of our regulars don't partake. If you are going to post or discuss spoilers for this show before they happen, or results of future shows, please use the spoiler bar in your comment.
Enjoy the show!
