What’s next for NXT? The black-and-yellow brand films at their home base of Full Sail Live on Weds., Nov. 28 to give us some answers.
We’ll start seeing the action taped tonight sometime in the next couple weeks of NXT’s regular Wednesday night series on WWE Network. These shows should take us through the rest of 2018 and about halfway to TakeOver: Phoenix on Jan. 26 - the eve of Royal Rumble.
What do Triple H and team have in store for us? Join us as we start updating results live when as they roll in from Winter Park, Florida after the scheduled 6:30PM Eastern bell time:
- Luke Menzies over Mansoor Al-Shehail.
- Matt Riddle over a debuting Punishment Martinez, billed under that name.
- Post-match, Kassius Ohno attacks Riddle and knocks him out.
- Forgotten Sons (Steve Cutler & Wesley Blake) over Humberto Carrillo & Raul Mendoza.
- Shayna Baszler over Dakota Kai.
- Post-match, the MMA Horsewomen (Baszler, Jessamyn Duke, & Marina Shafir) beat Kai down until Io Shirai makes the save and runs them off.
- Tommaso Ciampa comes out and cuts a promo to the extent that he’s the greatest NXT Champion in history and he’s disappointed that the crowd won’t get behind him. Aleister Black comes out and challenges him on the basis of having beaten Johnny Gargano at WarGames, which brings Gargano out to say that his issue with Black isn’t over until he says it’s over. Ciampa says he likes it when Johnny Badass shows up and proposes that Johnny and Aleister settle their issue inside of a steel cage.
- Adam Cole gets a short promo talking up how Undisputed ERA will be dripping in gold next year.
