NXT results, live blog (Aug. 28, 2019): Undisputed ERA vs. Street Profits

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 (for a few more weeks, anyway).

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!

- Mauro Ranallo, Nigel McGuinness & Beth Phoenix welcome us to Full Sail, and we’re starting with the Mad Queen.

- Io Shirai def. Cami Fields via submission with the Koji Clutch

One-sided affair which saw Io hit the top rope moonsault but pull up Fields before the three count in order to use her new finish (renamed the Harajuku Clutch).

- Afterwards, Shirai gets a kendo stick from under the ring. Candice LeRae runs in and takes the weapon from her, but Io escapes before LeRae can land any shots.

- We see Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly getting ready backstage before commercial, then a hype video for Kushida on the other side.

- Dominick Dijakovic def. Keith Lee via pinfall after Feast Your Eyes

Lee soaks in the cheers, but that only pisses DD off, who brushes off a lock-up to lay in some strikes. Keith fights back and shows off his agility, but eventually turns into a big boot that flattens him. That allows Dijakovic to take control for a few moments, but he’s unable to get Lee up for a suplex, and the Limitless One punches his way back into command. A slingshot crossbody gets two, and a follow-up lariat does too. They battle on the apron, and a charge goes badly for Dijakovic when he’s scooped up with one hand and slammed back first onto the apron. Dominick doesn’t move, but Lee doesn’t want another countout, so he goes and gets him to roll him back in. Keith is met at the ropes with strikes and kicks that eventually take him down. When one knocks him to the ground, Dijakovic flies to hit a Fosbury Flop! Back in comes at Lee off the top rope but is caught mid-air. Keith shoves him off, but DD lands on his feet. He throws Lee across the ring, climbs again and hits the moonsault, but it only gets two! He climbs again and Keith catches up to him this time. They trade shots on the ropes, and the Limitless One balances on the top rope for an avalanche Spanish Fly! One, two... NO! Lee climbs for a follow-up, but Dijakovic catches up to him. Elbows send Dominick to the mat, Keith sets up for the Doomsault, but DD catches up and crotches him with a kick. He lifts Lee into a fireman’s carry, and that’s it.

- With Johnny Gargano “contemplating his future, we get a video retrospective of his NXT career.

- Shane Thorne barges up to the announce table and questions why they’re talking about somebody who’s “gone” when they should be talking about him and his win streak.

- We get a flash back to last week’s run-in between Mia Yim and the 34 Horsewomen, and see Mia complaining to General Manager William Regal in last week’s Fallout video where he tells her, basically, that’s what you get for running around attacking people before Toronto.

- Women’s champ Shayna Baszler makes her way to the ring, flanked by Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir. Before the Queen of Spades can use the mic, however, it’s former NXT UK Women’s champ Rhea Ripley! The big Aussie and Baszler star each other down, and when Shayna raises the mic, Ripley snatches it out of her hand. Rhea says “I know what you’re gonna say, you’ve beaten everyone here. But you haven’t beaten me, bitch!” The Horsewoman roll out, leaving Ripley in the ring standing tall.

- Pete Dunne says it’s amazing what he’s done at age 25, and the rules don’t apply to him. He goes where he wants, when he wants. He’s not done with NXT UK. He’d be North American champ if Velveteen Dream hadn’t stopped the referee from counting three. If he has to go to the back of the line now, that’s fine. If anyone steps to him, he’ll break their fingers.

- We see the tag champs heading to the ring, and learn Dream faces Kona Reeves next week. Well also see Jordan (ACH) Myles cash in his Breakout Tournament contract against NXT champ Adam Cole.

- Undisputed ERA def. Street Profits, winning the NXT Tag Team championship via pinfall after Total Elimination

Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly are out by themselves, and we get the standard main event championship introductions from Alicia Taylor.

Neither team can keep the upper hand in the early going as we go through a series of tags on each man. Montez Ford gets a couple early covers on Fish after he and Angelo Dawkins run roughshod early, but when Dawkins complains about Kyle drifting away from his corner, O’Reilly nails Tez in the back with a knee. A scoop slam from his partner puts the ERA in charge, and then KOR yanks Ford off the apron by the knee, giving the heels a body part to target. That’s what Undisputed does for the next several minutes. Montez eventually lands on his feet out of a back drop and lunges for the tag, which brings in Angelo like a house afire. Spear to Fish gets a nearfall. German suplex follow-up, but O’Reilly hits him with the chop block before he can cover. Chasing the Dragon gets two, and both Profits are nursing wounded legs. With only two good wheels between them, the champs fight back. Tez takes out Fish, but when Dawkins goes for a leg-in suplex, KOR turns it into a submission. Angelo lifts him for a powerbomb, though! Double-team from the Profits ends in a frog splash from Dawkins, but Fish pulls Kyle out. Things break down, and Ford flies to the outside onto both opponents. Back in, Dawkins puts down Kyle with a spear, but when he tries it on Bobby, he runs into a knee. O’Reilly evades a frog splash from Montez, and this time he doesn’t kick out of a tandem finisher.

- The now three-time champs pose on the stage with Cole & Strong while the Profits look on in dismay.
