NXT results, live blog (Aug. 8, 2018): Aleister Black vs. Johnny Gargano

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!

Amber Nova vs. Nikki Cross

Nova gets some offense in, but Cross eventually fights back and goes a bit nuts. She picks up the win with The Purge (swinging fisherman’s neckbreaker).

Cross def. Nova via pinfall


Video for Keith Lee where he gives us some inspirational quotes about working to get better. Then he invites us to bask in his glory.

Ricochet Attacked

Ricochet’s music plays for his match but before we even see him in the entrance, he’s attacked by the Undisputed ERA. Adam Cole says he’s not a coward and doesn’t hide behind anyone. He stands tall - the one and only North American champion. And after he mangles Ricochet in Brooklyn, that will remain the same.


Vanessa Borne interviewed about her match against Taynara Conti tonight. She says she wants to win because she doesn’t want to deprive the world of her. She’s calling herself Vanessa “The Vision.” Then she tells interviewer to go and to make sure this is the last time they bother her.

Adrian Jauode vs. Kassius Ohno

Jauode has a big beard and is wearing a gi with a black belt. The arms of the gi are cut off.

This match is mainly Ohno, but Jauode gets a few moves in showing some strength. But soon it’s the Dream Crusher elbow for the 1-2-3.

Ohno def. Jauode via pinfall


EC3 joins the Velveteen Dream experience

EC3 meets Dream by the pool. Dream tells him to take a seat and the suggests they take a walk. As they do, Carter is suspicious VD is going to push him in the water.

Carter talks up how he wants the big stage for this big match. They both take off their sunglasses. Dream accuses Carter of disrespecting him. He purposely drops his sunglasses. EC3 picks them up. Velveteen tries to shove EC3 into the pool but Carter picks Dream up and tosses him in instead.

Dream is splashing around when Carter tells him to chill out because it’s three feet of water.

Velveteen Dream will be back in Full Sail next week.


Marcel Barthel vs. Keith Lee

Much of this match is built around these guys stopping each other’s moves and saying “Nein!” (Barthel is German)

Keith shows off his athleticism but Marcel gets strikes in and has a solid run of offense in this Lee showcase match.

Lee eventually wins with what looks like a fireman’s carry into a jackhammer.

Lee def. Barthel via pinfall


The Street Profits have a video of their show Street Talk where they are sitting at a table in front of an ATM. They make fun of TM61 calling themselves The Mighty now. Looks like they’re having a match next week.

Vanessa Borne vs. Taynara Conti in a Mae Young Classic Qualifying match

Despite both being heels last we checked, Borne is the real heel in this match.

Mauro is putting over the idea that these two actually consider themselves somewhat friends but that’s out the window when the MYC is concerned.

The finish is Conti reversing a crucifix pin attempt into a slam of sorts for the pinfall win.

Conti def. Borne via pinfall to join to MYC


Tyler Bate vs. Roderick Strong next week as well as Kairi Sane vs. Aliyah.

Cain Velasquez in the crowd here tonight.

Johnny Gargano vs. Aleister Black

Both men going for the strikes early on.

Not long into them match, Ciampa runs down and attacks first Gargano and then Black.

No contest (though possible that Gargano wins by DQ since he was attacked first)

Now both men are taking it to Tommaso. But Gargano and Black have no problem going at each other either as well. Aleister takes Johnny off Ciampa outside, tosses him in the ring, and then starts laying in the punches.

Referees run down to pull these men apart.

GM William Regal says this is out of hand. He’s not going to try to control or prevent this. He’s going to let it happen in Brooklyn at TakeOver - triple threat! (Though with Black’s injury after, probably not.)


That’s the show, folks. Thanks for watching with us!
