When we keep hell in our hearts, we make no excuse for our genius. So what’s my excuse now that hell has abandoned me? I enticed the devil out with a bottle, but maybe it was he who lured me out instead, to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with a hype reel for tonight’s four-way to crown a new NXT Champion, tonight on NXT 2.0.

Tommaso Ciampa cuts a promo, saying he will forever be Mr. NXT and the greatest love story in sports entertainment history gets a second chapter 2.0.

Pete Dunne says he’s the baddest man in NXT and tonight he proves it no matter who they put in front of him 2.0.

Kyle O’Reilly says this is the opportunity they all strive for and he’s just one win away from achieving a goal 16 years in the making 2.0.

LA Knight claims Samoa Joe is scared and it’s his game, but he turns around and runs into Bron Breakker (who is Rick Steiner’s son), who wants a chance to prove himself 2.0.

Bron Breakker vs. LA Knight

Knight in control early, beating Breakker down in the corner, Bron fires up and tosses him around a little. LA with a neckbreaker, that doesn’t keep Breakker down long, they brawl, Bron gets him up...

Bron Breakker wins by pinfall with a powerslam.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial we get footage of the match we just saw and see Bron Breakker backstage slapping hands.

Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs vs. Imperium (Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel)

Jensen and Aichner to start, Brooks with a big powerslam, quick tag. Barthel in too and Briggs hammers him with a headbutt into a huge tossing side slam and a big splash! Catch a boot, Marcel stomps him down, overhand chop, front kicks, double underhook into a hip toss and a penalty kick follows! Imperium pose, Aichner in but Josh slams him and tags Jensen in!

Back elbows, Barthel pulls Briggs off the apron, Aichner reverses, Brooks floats over, schoolboy for two! Uppercut, Marcel with a distraction, Fabian connects...

Imperium win by pinfall with a butterfly superplex from Fabian Aichner on Brooks Jensen.

Cut to Hit Row cutting a promo in the gay lights.

Ashante “Thee” Adonis puts B-FAB over at length, and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott says she’s gonna give NXT 2.0 something to be big mad about. Top Dolla says we think she’s the baddest because she’s a hottie, but really it’s that she’s trained with the best, Olympians and champions. B-FAB speaks for herself and says the time for talk is over as we go to break.

B-FAB vs. Katrina Cortez

B-FAB in control right out the gates, right hands, boots in the corner, cutthroat choke, bieling Cortez across the ring! Katrina with some forearms, boot up, on the second, she hops down and FAB destroys her with a front kick! Neckbreaker clutch...

B-FAB wins by pinfall with a hangman’s neckbreaker.

Post-match she gets on the mic and says senorita secret sauce was so quick to put her nose where it belongs—

Enter the Legado del Fantasma.

Elektra Lopez gets on the mic and they bicker. Lopez says this time she won’t need a pipe to shut B-FAB’s mouth, and for her part the Hit Row woman says she’s warm and ready and happy to do it right now. Elektra seems game but Santos Escobar holds her back and the two factions jaw at each other.

Cameron Grimes and Odyssey Jones are backstage with Johnny Gargano chatting when someone knocks on the door. It’s Austin Theory, who says he ran away but he wasn’t going to miss Indi Hartwell’s wedding and he brought someone, because you can’t have a wedding without a priest— it’s Damian Priest!

Johnny points out that Damian isn’t a real priest and Priest confirms that he’s right before taking a few drinks from Cameron. Gargano and Theory hug and that’s the segment.

Carmelo Hayes makes his entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial we get a Connor’s Cure hype reel.

Carmelo Hayes is interviewed in the ring.

He wants to get straight to it— three weeks ago he won the NXT Breakout Tournament, he’s got all this momentum, but now he’s got a target on his back. Moving forward to NXT 2.0, you’re not gonna catch him off guard ever again, and when he looks around he realizes that at the end of the day this is just a numbers game, so he called up his boy Trick.

Trick Williams (who is in the ring) says he’s about it, and Carmelo says wherever he goes, Trick goes, when he eats, Trick eats, and when he gets put on, Trick gets put on. Trick says he’s here for two reasons, he was born with the gift of the gab and the gift of the jab, and he’s proud of Hayes for being the golden child of NXT, but he’s got a bone to pick with him.

He always walks his walk and talks his talk, and when he shoots he don’t miss, so who is this new humble Melo? Hayes says he’s right, he’s the golden child and the chosen one, and if he chooses to pass it, Trick will receive it. Trick says that’s all it is and that’s all it’s gonna be.

Duke Hudson enters on their way out and cold shoulders them, which leads Williams to get in the ring and lay him out with a kick! Hayes joins the beatdown and Trick holds him up for the springboard forearm!

Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin are in a warehouse talking to Mandy Rose (who is off-camera) about how this is the real her and such. The camera pans back and Mandy’s wearing a hood and we can’t see any details.

Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter make their entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial we see the set being built for the In-Dex wedding.

Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne vs. Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter

Carter and Dolin to start, Kayden immediately clears the ring, mounted punches on Gigi as Catanzaro fights Jayne off! Whip to the corner, Stinger Splash, off the ropes, big dropkick and the tag! Kacy in, front flip leg drop for two! Standing crucifix, we see Pete Dunne and Ridge Holland beating Kyle O’Reilly up in the locker room.

Dolin gets away, Jacy tags in, Mandy Rose runs in and...

Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter win by disqualification, presumably? Either that or a no-contest.

Mandy takes her hood off and reveals that she’s gone brunette! The beatdown continues, Sarray makes the save and runs the heels off!

The two teams bicker and we go to break.

Gigi Dolin, Jacy Jayne, & Mandy Rose vs. Kacy Catanzaro, Kayden Carter, & Sarray

Back from commercial, match is in progress and Sarray gets a nearfall on Dolin off a suplex! Gigi snaps off a roundhouse kick on a distraction and Rose tags in and puts boots to Catanzaro! Choking her in the ropes, ramming her into the corner, tag to Dolin and she takes over right where Mandy left off. Pressing the attack, heat segment rolls on.

Kacy fires up but Rose catches her crossbody and turns it into a fallaway slam! Eventually she gets the tag, Carter in hot and she knocks Mandy back with a dropkick! Charging forearm, dropkick, wheelbarrow into a victory roll and Jayne cuts her off! The match breaks down, Rose takes advantage...

Gigi Dolin, Jacy Jayne, & Mandy Rose win by pinfall with a knee strike from Rose on Kayden Carter.

We go backstage with Indi Hartwell and the bridal party.

Candice LeRae yells at a bridesmaid for wearing a beanie. (Let her wear the beanie, it’s cute)

Ridge Holland makes his entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, William Regal is interviewed.

He announces that Kyle O’Reilly is out of tonight’s NXT Championship match because he’s not cleared, but it’s still going to be a four-way, with Von Wagner taking his place.

Drake Maverick vs. Ridge Holland

Holland just destroying Maverick, punching him in the chops so bad that he clutches his mouth...

Ridge Holland wins by pinfall with Northern Grit.

Tommaso Ciampa is interviewed backstage about the changes to the title match.

He says NXT 2.0 is chaos, young hungry athletes shooting their shot, and he gets that DIY mentality, but when it comes to the NXT title, you think about Tommaso Ciampa. It’s been 908 days and tonight he gets his redemption.

The Diamond Mine make their entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, an Italian-American man walks and talks to us about how he made his name as a Greco-Roman All American amateur wrestler, but his family smartened him up to the fact that the real money is in NXT.

His name is Tony D’Angelo.

Creed Brothers (Brutus & Julius Creed) vs. Dan Jarmon & Trevor Skelly

This is a squash— the Creeds dominate early, blue trunks fires up and rallies and Julius loves it but just powers up more himself and throws the poor dude around. Cartwheel spinebuster...

Creed Brothers win by pinfall with a falling lariat from Julius Creed on That Dude.

Post-match, Malcolm Bivens cuts a promo about how dominant the Diamond Mine are.

He introduces the newest member, Ivy Nile. He asks her to flex and she shows off her considerable muscles before he claims she hasn’t had a carb since 2005 and she was the star of NBC’s Titan Games.


He says they all talk too much and calls Roderick Strong out, saying he’s ready. Bivens says the match will happen next week!

We see Dexter Lumis brushing his moustache.

Beth Phoenix says Edge is home recuperating when Vic Joseph requests an update.

Pete Dunne makes his entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Johnny Gargano is doing some last-minute wedding prep.

LA Knight vs. Pete Dunne vs. Tommaso Ciampa vs. Von Wagner (NXT Championship)

Chaos to start, Knight slams Ciampa and moves on to uppercut Wagner! Whip reversed, Von with an uppercut, swinging back suplex! Dunne returns to the ring and goes after the new guy’s arm, stomping the bicep! Pete and Tom go wild on each other, throwing haymakers, Dunne off the ropes with a wicked lariat! Wagner in, laying Pete out, reverse STO on Knight and he stands tall as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Knight has Ciampa in a reverse chinlock, trying to grind him down. Tommaso to his feet, off the ropes, front kick, fending Dunne off when he comes in, chops and punches for both men! Pete lays LA out with an enzuigiri, right hand from Tom, charging lariats on both guys! Fairytale Ending blocked, Dunne stomps Von’s hand and kicks Ciampa in the head!

Knight hits his snapmare driver but Wagner breaks it up! Willow’s Bell on LA but he’s right on the ropes and Pete pulls him out to the floor to block the pin! Back inside, Tom nails him with a knee, Fairytale Ending blocked, Dunne has his fingers... WISHBONED! Pumphandle... BITTER END BUT KNIGHT THROWS HIM OUT OF THE RING!

Wagner with an Olympic Slam... SO CLOSE! Tommaso back in to cut him off, Von on his knees and Ciampa and Dunne sandwich him with charging forearms! Squaring up, trading forearms in the middle of the ring, Pete snaps off a German suplex! Up top, but Knight comes up with him... SUPERPLEX! Wagner in, underhooks, butterfly slam and Tom breaks it up!

Underhooks, Fairytale Ending... IT’S OVER!

Tommaso Ciampa wins by pinfall with Fairytale Ending on Von Wagner to become the new NXT Champion.

We get a video package for the In-Dex wedding covering the entire history of their relationship.

Guests file in as ring crew build the wedding set on the ring and we go to break.

Back from commercial, the wedding is in place and Johnny Gargano walks Indi Hartwell to the altar.

The priest begins, giving their full names as Dexter Gaylord Lumis and Indi Ophelia Hartwell. He asks who gives Indi away and Johnny says he does before panicking and double-checking with Hartwell to make sure she still wants to get married. Austin Theory is supposed to have the rings but he’s a dope who points out they’re in a ring, and Ikemen Jiro opens his blazer to reveal that he has the rings.

Theory says Jiro is his guy and Johnny takes the rings from him. The priest does the objection gimmick and about half of the guests raise their hands until Lumis opens his tuxedo jacket to reveal that he’s carrying a hatchet, and all the hands go down.

And now the vows. Indi goes first and talks about how people misunderstand Lumis and see him as a creep but she sees a caring man, and she nearly shares a story about Dexter sneaking into her bed before he shushes her. She says he keeps her safe and they understand each other and she can’t wait to spend the rest of their lives together.

Dexter’s vows consist of a thumbs up. The priest is baffled and criticizes him for not saying anything, and that leads to the priest getting choked out! Everybody calls for William Regal to fill in but he refuses and Beth Phoenix steps up to the altar! She says she was afraid something like this would happen so last night she went online and got ordained as a minister!

She cuts to the chase, which leads Andre Chase to stand up and ask if anybody said his name, which leads Odyssey Jones to choke him out. Phoenix asks for the rings and Johnny brings them up, and Beth does the “Do you?” bits and Indi does. She asks Dexter, he’s silent, and she says she’ll take that as a yes, but he palms her mic and leans in, saying “I do.” into his mic.

Phoenix pronounces them husband and wife, they kiss and Lumis sweeps Hartwell off her feet.

We cut to a monitor backstage, where Tommaso Ciampa is watching with Goldie.

Bron Breakker breaks up and congratulates him. Tom congratulates him on his win tonight and offers a hand. Bron shakes it and they stare each other down.

That’s the show, folks.
