NXT results, live blog (June 6, 2018): Kairi Sane vs. Lacey Evans

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 and 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!

Speak to me of those days, I won’t forget. Your worst dream has just returned to pay you back. I’m still laughing, there’s not much else I can do, but one thing’s certain... I’m coming back for you, after I finish liveblogging this here wrestling show for these folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Shayna Baszler makes her entrance.

She says last week she showed the entire locker room, through Dakota Kai, that when you step in the ring you’re gonna get slapped with a hard dose of reality, and she is that reality. It doesn’t matter how brave you think you are, she’s tougher, she’s stronger, she’s better, and the strong will always defeat the weak. There’s always gotta be one who thinks the rules don’t apply, and here it’s Nikki Cross.

She tells Nikki if she ever gets in her face again it’ll be the last thing she ever does--

Enter Nikki Cross. She and Shayna square up, Cross shaking with rage and Baszler cocky. Shayna reminds her that she’s the NXT Women’s Champion and the only place Nikki is better than her is the whacked-out corner of her brain. Cross stands stock still and doesn’t reply and Baszler asks if she’s crazy before saying if she ever pulls a stunt like that again, know she’ll be put to sleep in a heartbeat.

Shayna throws the mic at Nikki and it bounces off! She picks it up and tells her to do it, over and over, rising into a barely-comprehensible yell! Baszler merely holds the title high and jaws at her, but flinches when Cross makes a move! A shove gets a Lou Thesz Press into mounted punches and Nikki’s all over the champ! Overwhelming her with forearms and stomps in the corner!

Shayna gets one shot in and staggers Cross enough to dump her outside! She takes her jacket off and goes to drag Nikki back in but Cross catches her with a forearm and a diving crossbody to send her rolling to the floor with a bloody lip!

We take a quick break at this point.

Back from our break, we get a spot promoting the Halestorm tracks that’s one of the theme songs for TakeOver: Chicago.

Commentary hypes up Nikki vs. Shayna at TakeOver.

TM61 (Nick Miller & Shane Thorne) vs. Mike Hughly & Robbie Grand

Miller starting off with hard chops in the corner, taking Hughly to their corner, tagging Thorne in, he just steps on the dude but eats a jawbreaker and Robbie comes in... and gets destroyed with a dropkick. Nick tags back in, fish-hooking Grand, absorbing punches and clobbering him back, Robbie rallies but Shane nails him with a brace-assisted knee to the back, they clear Mike out...

TM61 win by pinfall with a forearm to the back of the head from Thorne on Grand.

Miller gets on the mic and starts talking about how they’ve beaten all the teams in NXT, from Street Profits to Heavy Machinery. They’re winners and they’ll win against War Raiders, Oney and Danny, or Undisputed Era if they’re man enough to get in the ring with them. Thorne says from now on, every team in NXT should kneel down and call them The Mighty!

Commentary hypes up Kairi Sane vs. Lacey Evans and Roderick Strong vs. Danny Burch.

We get a recap of the Lars Sullivan / Aleister Black segment from last week.

This is followed by footage of Lars destroying dudes while training at the Performance Center. At one point, the Mighty walk in in the background and immediately leave once they realize what’s going on.

Danny Burch vs. Roderick Strong

Circling, collar and elbow, Strong goes for a leg, takes it to the mat, reverse chinlock applied, taking his back a moment but Burch reverses to a hammerlock and a wristlock, Roddy out a moment but Danny’s right back on him with the hammerlock! Thrown off, Burch refuses to be denied and Strong is forced into the ropes for safety! Test of Strength, Danny with the leg trip this time and he kicks Roddy’s bicep hard!

Wrenching his arm behind his back, Strong is able to throw him through the ropes and catch him with a hard kick to turn the tide! Stomps into mounted punches, a kneeling rear chinlock gives way to tearing at his face! Drawing him to his feet, Roddy with chops in the corner, a backbreaker follows but can’t finish it this early. Front chancery, floating around, but Burch posts to his feet and breaks with elbows.

Off the rope, Strong with a dropkick... NOPE! Basement dropkick follows, another stomp, abdominal stretch applied but Danny manages to pry a leg loose and toss Roddy to the floor! Back in, sidestep a knee, connect with a headbutt and both men are down and out! Clubbing blows for body blows, slugging it out, straight rights from Burch pull him ahead and he shifts to uppercuts!

To the second rope, missile dropkick lands true and the Englishman kips up! Uppercut, German suplex, fired up, off the ropes with a huge lariat but the Undisputed Era hit the ring for the distraction! Pete Dunne and Oney Lorcan even the odds! It’s all-out war on the floor! Burch sidesteps a knee, armbar takedown, the crossface is on! Adam Cole on the apron with the distraction...

Roderick Strong wins by pinfall with a backbreaker.

Pete Dunne confronts Roddy from behind and hammers him with forearms when he turns around! Wrist-clutch... Kyle O’Reilly with the chop block to make the save! END OF HEARTACHE!

We go backstage where Kassius Ohno is in the middle of a photo shoot.

EC3 rolls up and asks why we’re taking pictures of Ohno before claiming he’s just joking. Kassius might be a tremendous wrestler but he’s not in the top one percent, and he keeps going on and on until Ohno cuts him off and calls him a blowhard that’s one percent away from being 99 percent unconscious.

Ohno gives him a week to prepare and EC3 says he can see it in lights. Challenge accepted.

Commentary hypes up Tommaso Ciampa’s appearance later as well as Sane/Evans.

We get a hype video for Sullivan/Black at TakeOver: Chicago.

This is followed by a hype video for Ricochet/VD featuring a bunch of Evolve footage (courtesy of Club WWN!) and even a bit of Lenny Leonard’s commentary, as well as dueling interviews from them, so that’s neat.

Kairi Sane vs. Lacey Evans

Lacey offer a handshake mockingly but Kairi ain’t following for it and they go to the collar and elbow. Sane with a wristlock, Evans grabs a handful of hair and throws wild haymakers that all miss and she gets chopped! Headscissors off the ropes, Divorce Court into a stomp to the hand! Whip to the corner, up and over into a headscissors, blocked, sidestep the charge and Lacey gets a knee off!

Slingshot elbow drop gets one! Evans catches a boot and punches Kairi in the stomach before grinding her fist into her face during a cover! Disdainful slap, referee DA Brewer admonishes her to lay off the hair and of course Lacey grabs a cobra clutch and immediately digs her hands into Sane’s scalp as she wrenches her around. Cobra clutch swing puts her into the corner and Senton de la Muerte gets a nearfall!

Big backfist is blocked, Kairi ducks the kick and trips Evans up! Right hands, shoved away, off the ropes and Lacey catches her with a boot! Body slam, headed to the second rope... double jump moonsault but nobody’s home! Sane with Interceptor, another one, a third! Evans pulling herself up in the corner, Kairi marches... sliding elbow! Up top... diving forearm!

Not enough to win so Sane locks a cross armbar on! Lacey turns it into a folding press... NOT ENOUGH! Double leg pickup, Alabama Slam, perched up top...

Kairi Sane wins by pinfall with the diving elbow drop.

Commentary hypes up Ciampa’s address again and we take a short break for a house ad.

Back from our little break, commentary hypes up next week’s events, including EC3 vs. Kassius Ohno.

Tommaso Ciampa makes his entrance to a chorus of boos and “You suck!” chants. He gets in the ring and the tone changes to dueling “Johnny Wrestling!” / “Psycho Killer!” chants and then “You tapped out!” as he climbs atop the turnbuckles. He begins and says we all gave up on him long before he gave up on us. He tries to continue but gets cut off with “Asshole!” chants, to which he says he’s gonna talk no matter what.

He wants to talk about Johnny, how he did last week what he always does, interrupting a match unannounced and uninvited, and why? Because it’s always about Johnny Gargano. He just had to announce to the entire world that he signed his contract, and apparently Johnny Wrestling has become Johnny Badass. He gets it, it’s adorable, it is, and really anything to take attention away from how two weeks ago he damn near crippled his own wife.

And the best part? It’s on Gargano. He brought his wife to the ring, he challenged Tommaso to a fight, and he insisted even with Candice and referees pleading, and what did he do? He attacked Ciampa, and all Ciampa did was defend himself. The truth hurts, he knows that, and what he shoulda done is listened to his wife, because now it’s all on him. At TakeOver: Chicago, don’t show up.

He promises him the whole Gargano fairytale is coming to an end and it won’t be a happy ending. His wife is broken, he’ll be broken, Ciampa will win.

HERE’S JOHNNY! HE SHRUGS OFF SOME SECURITY GUARDS, PULLS CIAMPA OUT OF THE RING AND STARTS BEATING ON HIM! MORE GUARDS AND REFEREES COME BUT HE CAN’T BE STOPPED! A SUICIDE DIVE PUTS TOMMASO OVER THE BARRICADE! Ciamp fights back with knee lifts and stomps and more security hit the ring to pull them apart but again Johnny gets away and dives! Separated again but not for long and we end up back in the ring!

Gargano fights off some more security but Ciampa’s behind him... NORTHERN LARIAT! Into stomps... HE’S GOT THE GARGANO ESCAPE ON JOHNNY! The entire NXT referee team pull Tommaso off him but the damage is done! Tommaso heads up the ramp, the ending bug comes on-screen... BUT JOHNNY’S UP AND AT ‘EM! HE PUTS CIAMPA INTO THE BARRICADES AND HE’S BUSTED OPEN!
