WWE NXT results, live blog (June 7, 2017): Itami vs. Lorcan

WWE on Twitter

Here's a place to check results and comment along with the latest airing of WWE NXT in its regular Wednesday night at 8PM Eastern time slot on WWE Network.

Check out our Wednesday morning preview post to get caught up on what's been happening, and what we expect this week.

We'll post match results here, and we will also have our regular reactions post later. In the meantime, and most importantly, this gives you Cagesiders a dedicated place to rave and/or bitch about whatever happens on WWE’s third brand - during its initial broadcast!

NOTE: Spoilers are out there for these pre-taped broadcasts (including here), but many Cagesiders 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!

- Victor Andrews (Lars Sullivan’s local talent tag partner) gets an inset promo during entrances for our first match; he says he plans to make the most of his opportunity, and tells Lars he’s ready

- Heavy Machinery def. Victor Andrews & Lars Sullivan via pinfall following the Compactor (Tucker Knight splashes onto the back of Otis Dozovic while he slammed Andrews); Andrews tagged himself in before the finish

- Afterwards, Sullivan tried to control himself, but ends up taking his partner apart

- Recap of last week’s main event, and the fallout video where Christy St. Cloud informed SAnitY about Killian Dain’s match with No Way Jose tonight and Dain promises “no one is safe, especially not No Way Jose”

- Roderick Strong addresses the NXT Universe... the last year’s been a roller coaster. He’s in NXT, he’s got a beautiful fiancee and a handsome baby boy. The biggest thing, however, was he opened up to the fans about something he was ashamed of, and we accepted him. He thanks us, but there’s something he wants, something he needs and that’s the NXT title. It’s not just Roddy vs. the World anymore, it’s Roddy, Marina & Troy vs. the World, and that will make him even more driven, inspired and passionate to be the best.

- GLORIOUS DOMINATION hits the loud speakers. NXT champion Bobby Roode comes out crying into a handkerchief. He says it’s such an emotional story, he needs a minute. Roddy’s got a lot going on: marginally hot wife, relatively normal kid, he’s even finally winning. Now he wants to play the Booby Roode lottery in hopes of moving out of the trailer park into the mansion on the hill. The champ understands, those diapers are expensive after all. But that’s not how it works in his NXT. You don’t just wave your hand and get a title shot. Strong is a good hand, but he’s not championship material. Maybe one day they can take a selfie together and he can go home and show his son, “there’s the champ, and there’s your old man”. Bobby would do that for Strong. But he doesn’t get to the play the Bobby Roode lottery.

- Nikki Cross is in the rafters, obsessively talking about Asuka and wanting to “play again”. Tom Phillips reminds us there’s an elimination Triple Threat for the title next week with Nikki, Ruby Riot and the champ.

- Another Paul Ellering-narrated Authors of Pain promo video, showing potential challengers Heavy Machinery, Tito Sabatelli & Riddick Moss and SAnitY. They may not understand, but they’ll have no choice but to accept the pain.

- Peyton Royce (with Billie Kay) def. Sarah Logan* via pinfall following a fisherman’s suplex

* The former Mary Dobson. Nigel McGuinness gives us some of her backstory... she was born in the woods of Kentucky, used to watch pro graps with her grandmother and grew up practicing wrestling with a goat

- Highlights of Andrade “Cien” Almas’ latest loss from last week, followed by video of him leaving Full Sail with three ladies. As St. Cloud tries to get a comment, another woman (Thea “Rosita” Trinidad) approaches and slaps him, asking “is this who you are now?” Almas watches with a bit of a smirk as she storms off.

- Interview from with Hideo Itami. He tells Christy he’s not going back to Japan. He worked too hard to get here to give up after one loss. He’s not done.

- Hideo Itami vs. Oney Lorcan ends in a no contest. Itami feigned a knee injury and kicked Lorcan while the referee checked on him. Then he hit THREE Go 2 Sleeps without trying to cover and was going for a fourth when Kassius Ohno ran in to stop him. While Ohno tried to talk him down, Hideo shoved him. A conflicted Kassius pushed back and knocked Itami down. Hideo left while glaring at KO.

- Drew McIntrye video package, and we learn he’ll be in action next week.

- Interview with the newly cleared Ember Moon. She acknowledges coming up short in her first Women’s title shot. Having her second one taken away from her forced to her to examine who she is. She needs to take care of her “Peyton & Billie dilemma”, but guarantees her next opportunity at the title will be THE opportunity.

- Killian Dain def. No Way Jose via pinfall following Ulster Plantation
