You keep me lit like antediluvian Troy, but one always reveres what one’s bound to destroy. Gloomy Erebus is an anathema to me, all of them dancing like flames and the sad enmity. I wonder if I understand, but my main concern here is liveblogging this here pro wrestling show for you folks.

The show opens with Vic Joseph introducing his new broadcasting partner, Booker T.

Valentina Feroz asks Sanga if he’ll be in her corner tonight, since Yulisa Leon is hurt, and he accepts.

Hartwell rolls her around and deadlifts her up to counter the armbar with a suplex! Jawbreaker gets Feroz a breather but she notices Sanga is gone and hesitates. Arm drag, running Meteora, basement dropkick into a cover... NOPE! Indi takes her out...

Indi Hartwell wins by pinfall with a superplex.

Post-match, Pretty Deadly appear on the balcony dressed like how they think Americans dress for sporting events, in foam hats and leather pants.

They talk about how they’re waiting to see who challenges them next and they’ve got sausages crackling for the hottest boys in NXT.

Edris Enofe and Malike Blade make their entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Cora Jade is interviewed backstage.

She’s contacted some potential opponents for Roxanne Perez for next week and mocks her for not having any friends, but she flips out and says Perez is lying when she’s told that her DMs are blowing up and Roxanne is going to SmackDown to scout this week.

Backstage, Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne are interviewed and say they’re gonna take care of Alba Fyre and send her right back to Middle Earth.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial we get a Kiana James vignette at her office where she’s working on buying the land out from under Chase University.

Jayne charges in, Fyre sidesteps, KLR Bomb blocked, bridging folding press, nope, crucifix, no deal! Trading forearms, whip across, Alba trips her with a drop down and nails her with a forearm! Fending off interference from Dolin, Jacy takes advantage, rolling elbow and boots in the corner!

As Fyre leaves, she gets attacked by Sonya Deville, incognito in the crowd! She hops down and throws Alba into the barricade! Toxic Attraction hold Fyre up so Sonya can land a pump kick and then she clears the announce table... POWERBOMB THROUGH THE ANNOUNCE TABLE!

Backstage, the Schism attack a camera operator and Joe Gacy cuts a promo down the barrel.

He says he tried to save Cameron Grimes from himself but now he has to face the whole Schism three-on-one and he’ll fight and use every ounce of oxygen in his body until he takes his last gasp.

Wes Lee makes his entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial we get a video package for the women’s tag title match.

Backstage, Hank Walker and Quincy Elliott are hanging out with the security crew. Hank says he’s got Quincy’s back next week, and all his security pals are gung-ho about the idea of them forming a tag team.

Sonya Deville is interviewed backstage.

She says Mandy Rose has had her differences with her, but she’s still her best friend, and if Gigi and Jacy are Mandy’s girls, they’re her girls too. She made Alba Fyre pay a price for attacking Mandy, and passes on the message that she’s gonna be in the ring ready to fight Alba next week, but if she shows up, she won’t make it to Halloween Havoc.

We, however, will make it to break just fine.

Back from commercial, we go to the hospital with Diamond Mine.

Ivy Nile wheels Roderick Strong in to see the Creed Brothers, and they promise that Damon Kemp will pay for what he did to Roddy. Strong apologizes for bringing Damon in and asking them to trust him, and a few weeks ago he’d have been fighting right as Julius’ side, but he can’t now.

But at Halloween Havoc, he just needs one thing from Creed. Win, because it’s Diamond Mine forever.

Kiana James vs. Thea Hail

Right at the bell, Robert Stone interrupts and says he has business to talk about. Right now he should be celebrating Von Wagner going to Halloween Havoc, but instead the world is laughing at him because of Thea Hail. She has the audacity to slam him and now he’s gonna ruin her night.

He charges in and gets back body dropped and Thea puts boots to her! James right in with a spinning Divorce Court...

Kiana James wins by pinfall with a folding press and her nose halfway in Hail’s butt.

Tony D’Angelo goes to talk to Stacks and blames him for his knee injury. Actions have consequences, and next week, Stacks is gonna feel the consequences. Channing asks who it is, Tony says it’s not Wes Lee and reminds him of a fight he had in sixth grade and says it’ll be like that.

Ilja Dragunov makes his entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Robert Stone is walking and fuming about people laughing at him.

He runs into Von Wagner, who tells him to get serious and cut the bullshit and he needs Stone locked in to make sure nobody stops him from winning. Robert apologizes and says it’s time for Von to be champion.

Cameron Grimes is interviewed backstage.

He says he’d be lying if he said it doesn’t feel good to cost the Dyad the contendership, and there’s no one in NXT he trusts, but that doesn’t include the rest of WWE.

Cora Jade rolls up and brags about Rhea Ripley inviting her to Raw next week to pick an opponent for Roxanne Perez.

Grayson Waller vs. Ilja Dragunov

Waller calling for a time-out and going to the floor early, back in, Dragunov takes him down and locks a front chancery on. Reversed to a wristlock, Ilja with an upkick and a backfist, big senton and Grayson runs for the ropes. Dirty break with a punch to the throat, leg lariat follows and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Waller with a suplex, reversed into a small package, only two! Double leg from Dragunov, kick sends him flying, big chop, falling elbow sends Grayson to the floor in agony!

Ilja cracks another one across his shoulders, elbows left and right, duck the backfist, big jab gets an enzuigiri and both men are down! Dragunov to his feet, running knee, capture suplex connects! Kick combo from Grayson, diving elbow, cover... NOPE! Raining elbows across the back of Ilja’s neck, cover for two.

Looking for a sleeper hold, Dragunov stands up and backs him into the corner and lays elbows in for a break. Waller with a waistlock, shove off, Tiger feint into a lariat and Ilja’s got some breathing room! Charging in, Grayson trips him up, bodyscissors sleeper hold!

Dragunov gets a hand in and to his feet, posting up, slinging Waller off! Ilja clutching his throat, slingshot neck snap over the top and Grayson walks up the ramp. The stipulation wheel is there and spinning, he’s spooked and runs back inside to a series of German suplexes and a cradle suplex to put the exclamation point on!

Ilja fired up and calling for it...

Ilja Dragunov wins by pinfall with Torpedo Moskau.

Post-match, Ilja conducts his music on the turnbuckles only for Bron Breakker to spear him in half!

JD McDonagh applauds.
