NXT results, live blog (Oct. 10, 2018): Ricochet vs. Adam Cole vs. Pete Dunne

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!

- NXT champ Tommaso Ciampa is on his way out even before Mauro Ranallo, Nigel McGuinness and Percy Watson can introduce themselves. He tells the belt he loves it amidst a sea of boos, then calls for a mic. He puts over his entrance music as the greatest of all-time, for the greatest sports entertainer of all-time. It brought silence to the sheep, but there’s always one who tries to break away from the flock. In this case, that one if the Velveteen Dream. Ciampa tells Dream he has the champ’s attention, but he’s done it the wrong way - making accusations, sticking his nose in things that are none of his business.

That brings out the Dream, who finds all of this interesting... especially the part where Ciampa claims to be the greatest of all-time. He doesn’t appreciate the threats coming from the champ though. He also thinks the championship deserves a different experience than one with an angry bald man hiding behind his insecurities.

Tommaso says he may be an angry bald man, but he’s one with a shiny title. He gets it, Velveteen wants what the champ has - the main event. He doesn’t even think Dream believes he attacked Aleister Black, he just isn’t man enough to ask for what he wants. The title (not Ciampa, mind you) wonders if maybe Velveteen Dream isn’t “tough enough”? Dream says not only is he man enough, he’s more man than Tommaso can handle. And if he wants to find out, all he has to do is give Velveteen time with him and the belt.

Before Ciampa can answer, Nikk Cross’ music hits! She charges the ring and plays with the tassles on Dream’s jacket and tries to touch the belt. She tells Velveteen she knows what he did, then puts her hand in his face. He thinks about hitting her, but she backs off and goes to the champ. He pulls the belt back and she knocks the mic from his hand. She gets down on the ground and says “I know what you did too” into it. She chases Dream off, then kicks the mic away from Ciampa before rolling out and dancing her way up the ramp. Ciampa clutches his belt and looks concerned as the segment ends.

- Adam Cole is seen stretching in the back, and Percy hypes our next match as we go to commercial. Pete Dunne is taping his wrists when we come back, and it’s time for our first match.

- Keith Lee def. Kona Reeves via pinfall following a Super Nova

Reeves talks trash and declares himself NXT’s finest at the bell, and Lee laughs in his face. Kona shoves his opponent into the corner, but that gets turned around and Keith delivers his deafening chops. Reeves gets sent to the floor in the next exchange, but he snaps Lee’s head over the ropes when he reaches for him to take control. Drop kick and elbow drop get a cover, then it’s rest holds and dirty tricks.

Lee hulks up through some strikes, then bulldozes Reeves over and that’s it.

- Nigel reminds us of Evolution’s Women’s title match, and it’s another Shayna Baszler training video. She’s again saying it was her mistake that allowed Kairi Sane to beat her in Brooklyn, not the Pirate Princess beating her. The really frustrating thing is that uneducated fans think Sane really beat her. That makes her so pissed.

- “The media” catch up to Kairi outside the building. She’s sooo excited to be going to Evolution, and she’s not worried about Shayna’s new training regiment. She will beat her again on Oct. 28.

- An interviewer catches up with General Manager William Regal. He’s asked about Ciampa and Dream accusing each other, and he’s not willing to give any information about his investigation. He knows he needs answers and Nikki says she has them, so...

Kassius Ohno is waiting outside of Regal’s office. He wants an update on what they talked about last time, a match against the GM’s shiny new toy. Regal doesn’t answer him, which prompts an angry promo from Ohno about the GM’s “bromance” with his new signee. Regal heads into his office without giving KO what he wants, and Cross walks up to tell Kassius that she knows what he did, too.

- After a hype video recapping the Undisputed ERA/War Raiders story, we’re reminded the NXT tag title is part of a co-main event next week with Cross vs. Bianca Belair.

- Ricochet def. Pete Dunne & Adam Cole via pinfall (springboard 450 onto Dunne) to retain the North American title

Big fight spotlight intros, Drake Wuertz shows us the belt and we’re off. The two titleholders decide to team-up to kick Cole’s ass, then Dunne and Ricochet argue about who should get to kick Cole’s ass. That lets the ERA leader shove Ric into the Bruiserweight, who rolls out allowing the two Americans to have the ring for a moment. The NA champ gets the best of that, then taunts Dunne rather than diving on him and gets thrown out by Cole. Dunne gets the best of that, then the two champs lock up again.

The UK champ and the NA champ work a grappling exchanges similar to their singles encounter. Dunne drops Cole with a toe hold when he charges in, and Ricochet lets the Bruiserweight slap on a surfboard, then hits a basement drop kick. The King offers his hand and gets rocked with a forearm for his trouble. Dunne shrugs and proceeds to work Ricochet’s fingers over. Ric battles back and locks in a submission of his own, but that’s when Cole runs in and puts the boots to both of them. He dumps the NA champ to the floor and goes to work on Dunne.

Ricochet tries to springboard in, but Cole hits the ropes and sends him to the floor. The Panama City Playboy gets the better of a striking exchange with Dunne, leading to a nearfall. The Bruiserweight uses a step-up enziguri to put Cole down, and then Ric has recovered and flies to take out everyone - including Cole with an enziguri in the ring and a moonsault to Dunne on the floor in a rapid fire sequence. A springboard elbow gets two on Cole.

The Bruiserweight recovers to break-up whatever Ric was attempting with Cole on his shoulders, then knocks Cole silly with a forearm. A flurry of kicks sets up a spot where Dunne grabs both men with a single-leg crab. Ricochet gets free while Dunne focuses on Cole and stretches the UK champ with an octopus hold. Cole hits him with a lungblower for two.

Cole gets the best of another striking exchange, scoring a nearfall on Ricochet after a running knee. Another flurry ends with Ric hitting a SSP onto Dunne’s back, then a neat callback to Brooklyn when Pete and Adam hit superkicks on the One and Only when he tries for a springboard moonsault.

A brawl between the Bruiserweight and the ERA leader heads to the apron, where Cole hits a DDT. He lines up for a superkick at the steps, but Dunne evades. After nailing the steel with the kick, Pete sets his hand up stomps it on the top step. Back in, a sequence features Cole superkicking Ric before being hit with a Dunne moonsault. The UK champ follows up with a X-Plex on Ricochet, but Cole breaks up the pin.

All three men end up in the corner for Ricochet to hit a super double frankensteiner. Another rana on the mat, followed by a flatliner gets two on Dunne. He tries to follow-up with a 630, but Cole recovers to hit the ropes and crotch the NA champ. Pete goes to work the fingers, but Cole rolls him up and puts his feet on the ropes, but Dunne kicks out. The UK champ recovers to hit Bitter End, but Ric flies in with a shooting star press... where Dunne catches him in a triangle! One-armed powerbomb counter attempt is thwarted with more digit manipulation. Cole recovers to superkick the Bruiserweight and hit Last Shot on the man defending his belt in this match. The Panama City Playboy grabs Dunne for a brainbuster onto his knee, but the UK champ kicks out!

Dunne puts Cole down with a clothesline and again hits Bitter End, but Ric flies in to not only break up the pin but cover the UK champ and end it.
