NXT results, live blog (June 12, 2019): TakeOver XXV aftermath, Pt. 2

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!

- Nigel McGuinness & Mauro Ranallo welcome us to Belair, Maryland and run down our card. (this was filmed prior to TakeOver: XXV, but commentary was recorded afterwards and this fits into kayfabe continuity as happening after the show in Bridgeport, Connecticut). The ladies are up first...

- Io Shirai & Candice LeRae vs. Marina Shafir & Jessamyn Duke ends in a no contest (I think?)

Women’s champion Shayna Baszler watches from the stage. Candice starts “because of Shirai’s shoulder injury from TakeOver”. She runs through both MMA Horsewomen, with Shafir only avoiding a pin by rolling out of the ring. LeRae climbs for something, but Marina hits the ropes to crotch her and start the face-in-peril portion of the match. Duke with kicks and rest holds, Shafir tries to stretch Candice, but escapes with an armdrag. Marina knocks Io off the apron, though. LeRae eventually gets clear by shoving Jessamyn into Shafir, then getting out of a toehold with an enziguri. Shirai in hot, 6-1-9 and dropkick on Duke (after shucking off Marina’s interference attempt). She sets Jessamyn up Shayna’s elbow stomp, and staring down the Queen of Spades, she hits it. Baszler pulls Duke from the ring to save her from an aerial assault, so Io moonsaults onto both of them on the floor! Candice with a suicide dive, and the referee calls for the bell!

Shirai and Baszler battle into the stands, leaving LeRae outnumbered, but when the camera swings back to her, she’s smashing Shafir’s head off the ramp! Officials pull Candice to the back and we see Io & Shayna still swinging as Nigel kicks it to a recap of the XXV’s North American title match...

- Selfie promo from Velveteen Dream. The camera is focused on the belt and he talks about how beautiful and deserving of the spotlight it is, then swerves to reveal he’s talking about himself. He teases the next experience, but Dream Over... we’ll have to wait until the taping results, I guess.

- Quick recap of the Gulak/Kushida feud as that match is next. Damien Priest’s teaser video is shown. He’ll be here next week.

- Kushida def. Drew Gulak in a Submission Match with the Hoverboard Lock

Should have gotten Claire to do this one... here goes nothing. After some early attempts by both men, Gulak is the first one to get frustrated and use some striking to soften Kushida up, targeting his arms. The action spills to the outside and allows Kushida to kick him in the face. Back in, Gulak with slams, the second one is transitioned right into a gruesome looking back and arm stretch. The Japanese star manages to slide down and flip free, but Gulak grounds him quickly and then goes right back to working the left arm. Kushida gets free with kicks to the ribs, and takes control with more kicks. An enziguri on the apron and a DDT sets up an armbar, but the Cruiserweight Crusader gets a toe on the ropes. More kicks to the arms, and the men work through a series of roll throughs which McGuinness and Ranallo remind us don’t do any good since pinfalls don’t count. They both go for ankle locks, and Gulak gets one which forces Kushida to scramble for the ropes. After a break, they battle on the apron, and Kushida ends up Drew’s shoulders, dumping both men into the ring. In the next exchange, Kushida gets his submission finisher, and Gulak quickly taps.

After the match, Kushida asks the crowd to cheer the Philadelphia Stretcher. Gulak seems like he might heel it up, sticking his finger in Kushida’s chest before offering his hand.

- We go to the PC’s parking lot, where Vanessa Bourne & Aliyah cut a promo. They’re disgusted that Mia Yim thinks she’s next in line for a title shot. They both say they’re more deserving, but they won’t step in the ring to prove it until Mia studies up. They got her a Fashion Bible, and English & Grammar books for her.

- A Steel Cage match between Io Shirai and Shayna Baszler for the Women’s title is happening in two weeks.

- We see a clip of Mansoor winning Super ShowDown’s battle royal in his home country, and his post-win promo.

- Undisputed ERA and new NXT champ Adam Cole will be here next week.

- Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch def. Undisputed ERA (Kyle O’Reilly & Roderick Strong) via pinfall with a roll-up (Burch on O’Reilly)

Bobby Fish comes out with his boys, wearing a sling. He heads to the back as they head to the ring. The Brit-Am Brawlers march right to the ERA and want to get started. The ref separates long enough to get the bell, and KOR and Oney start. Kyle with an early leg lock before they trade chops in the corner. Things break down during a striking exchange, and Burch and Strong join the fray. Roddy rolls out and O’Reilly follows, so Lorcan dives onto both! The Brawlers try to whip one another into ERA members in opposite corners, but Strong gets a kick up and throws Burch into his partner to give Undisputed control. Backbreaker on Oney by Strong, then Kyle comes in to punish him with, among other things, a sliding kick. Eventually Roddy gets a choke. Lorcan almost gets to the corner, but Strong blasts Burch off the apron. O’Reilly in with a drop knee. After a few more strikes, KOR stretches Oney. Lorcan reverses into a pinning predicament so Kyle releases. Strikes and a blockbuster lets Oney get to the corner, and both guys make tags. Burch gets the better of a striking exchange, but after a suplex to Strong and another round of strikes, Kyle tags himself back in. Danny dodges the axe kick and hits a headbutt, powerbomb for a nearfall transitioned right into a crossface. Roddy pulls Kyle to the ropes, and on release fires back with a lariat. Brainbuster from KOR, but Oney breaks up the pin. They all swing until everyone goes down, and here comes Jaxson Ryker!

Security tries to stop the Forgotten Son, so he chokeslams one and throws another into the stairs. While everyone else is getting ready to deal with the interrupting big man, Danny makes his move and that’s the match.
