Enjoy the show!
- We’re reminded tonight is Kushida’s debut, then we RAWK, then Mauro Ranallo, Nigel McGuinness & Percy Watson welcome us to Full Sail. And we’re starting with trios action...
- The Forgotten Sons def. Humberto Carrillo, Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan (Blake on Burch)
Lorcan starts with Steve Cutler, and after getting powered into the corner, Oney sends him to the outside and flies onto all three sons on the ramp. Carrillo in, and Cutler rolls out to regroup with his bros and we get a staredown. Wesley Blake in to take a lot of lucha offense from fka Ultimo Ninja, but blind tag to Jaxson Ryker, and he slides in and hits Humberto with a powerbomb after Blake rolls out. The Sons keep him isolated, and get a nearfall when Ryker hits a diving headbutt after a tandem neckbreaker from his partners. Jaxson locks in a Cobra Clutch and flips over in the corner to put Ryker in a pinning predicament. Carrillo evades another headbutt, and gets to the corner to bring in Burch. The Brit-Am Brawlers clean house, and Danny gets a submission on Blake, but Ryker breaks it up. Humberto with a drop kick off the top on Jaxson, but when he flies to the outside, Ryker pushes Blake out of the way and he hits Oney. Burch tries to fight alone, but gets done in by DAT NUMBERS GAME. Carrillo tries to make a save, but jumps into a double axe-handle from Jaxson. He holds both Humberto and Danny for a tandem double-stomp from his partners, and that’s it.
- Earlier today, Cathy Kelley catches up with the 2⁄3 Horsewomen as they enter the building. Shayna Baszler has no sympathy for the Sky Pirates, it’s buried with Kairi Sane. Kelley asks if she was frustrated because she’s never pinning Io Shirai, but Shirai has pinned her. The Women’s champ smacks the mic out of Cathy’s hand and the stable marches off.
- Nigel kicks it to an “earlier this week at the PC” clip of Bianca Belair talking trash to Mia Yim during a workout. Yim gets down to get in her face while Robbie Brookside tries to break it up (and Stokely Hathaway watches), and The EST eventually storms off. Yim vs. Baszler is next week.
- Dominik Dijakovic def. Mansoor via pinfall with his GTS-into-knee finisher
Dijakovic tries to end things quick with a roundhouse boot again, but Mansoor has it scouted. He lands a series of strikes, and wobbles the bigger man with a running elbow. But he tries to follow that with a leap off the top, and gets caught, kneed in the mid-section and thrown to the floor. Dom follows, lays in a little more punishment, and rolls Mansoor back in. Release suplex, but he can only get two. More strikes, a big backbreaker and a splash gets another nearfall. Mansoor reverses a carry into a choke hold, and manages to stay on offense, buckling Dijakovic again with some nifty enziguri variants, one of which gets two. But follows that by jumping into a kick, striking series ends with a boot, and then the finish.
- Dijakovic throws Mansoor to the floor, and the North American champ’s music hits. A pair of lovely ladies roll Velveteen Dream’s couch onto the stage. He heard Dominick had some words for him, so Dream’s prepared some for him. But we need to do that right, so he calls for some music, and leads a sing-a-long promo set to the Star Spangled Banner. It ends with “Because I’m the Dream, and this is the Dream’s NXT”. He then gets rolled out while Dom stares at him.
- We get a recap of last week’s main event and the Undisputed ERA’s latest meltdown. We learn Matt Riddle faces Adam Cole next week, and then it’s off to the ERA’s promo spot.
Kyle O’Reilly says Johnny Gargano is the luckiest man on Earth, and Bobby Fish agrees. Roderick Strong says it’s not about last week, it’s about next week when Cole goes up against Riddle. AC agrees, and says they’re Undisputed because they move on, so they’re not focused on Roddy screwing up last week. Strong takes issue with that (and their promo music stops) and storms off. Fish sides with Roddy, and Cole tries to play it off a joke. KOR sticks with the former NA champ, and says they’ll get through this.
- Kushida def. Kassius Ohno via submission with a Hoverboard Lock
The Japanese Superstar offers his hand, but Ohno kicks it away. They grapple and Kushida ends up riding the bigger man’s back before mockingly patting him on the head. The newcomer stays on the offensive, and goes for a roll-up after a drop kick and a moonsault. KO offers his hand from one knee, and Kushida considers it, makes the wrong choice and ends up getting kicked in the head for it. Drop knee for a nearfall from the heel, but Kushida is back in it in a hurry, hitting a boot of his own, an enziguri on the apron, a springboard chop to the head and then a drop kick to Ohno’s rolling elbow arm. An attempt at taking Kassius’ back fails, though, and Kushida falls victim to a gourdbuster. Trash talk as KO tells the Super Junior he doesn’t belong here, which of course triggers the comeback. Flatliner followed by a hurricanrana off the ropes that gets two. He does a little showboating of his own and ends up taking a lariat for a nearfall. But the wind-up punch connects as a counter to Ohno’s bicycle kick, and after another kick to the arm, cinches in his submission for a debut win.
