WWE NXT RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR NOV. 15
Pull the top down, use your knees to drive. I’ll make it worth your while just let me taste the sky. You pressed your mouth on mine and fed me a star, then said “We never can truly know who we are,” but now I know I’m here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with Bron Breakker and Von Wagner walking backstage separately ahead of their match.
Bron Breakker (c) vs. Von Wagner (NXT Championship)
Robert Stone running interference, Wagner lighting Breakker up with punches and kicks in the corner, choking the champion! Bron off the ropes, slide under, hit a boot, an exploder suplex, whip across, big Frankensteiner and he’s fired up! But Von is on top of him, short-arm punches, Breakker reverses to a delayed vertical suplex and kips up!
Shot off, duck a lariat, duck a backhand, Bron with a big lariat and we go to break!
Back from commercial, Breakker has control of the situation with a side headlock, grinding his challenger down. To the floor, Wagner puts him into the steps and takes the top step off, goozle... CHOKESLAM ON THE STEEL STEPS! Back inside, Von with bodyslam after bodyslam, posting the champion, back suplex into a neckbreaker drop... NOPE!
Cobra Clutch applied, trying to choke Breakker out, putting him up top but Bron knocks him down and batters him with a diving lariat! Off the ropes, spinning spinebuster, diving bulldog and Breakker is fired up! Lying in wait, he charges him but Von catches him with the fireman’s carry neckbreaker... NOT QUITE!
Back on his feet, the straps are down, Wagner shoves Robert Stone away, Bron slips out, off the ropes... SPEAR! IT’S OVER!
Bron Breakker wins by pinfall with a spear to retain the NXT Championship.
We see Zoey Stark walking through the parking lot to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Bron Breakker is walking backstage and stops to contemplate the title belt when JD McDonagh rolls up.
He congratulates Bron and tells him they’re never gonna be done with each other.
Zoey Stark makes her entrance and gets on the mic.
She says her back feels lighter not having to carry Nikkita Lyons. She was on the shelf for nine months and came back like a bat out of hell, defeating 19 women to earn a title shot against Mandy Rose. She was ready, oh boy was she ready, and then she got called into a meeting where everything changed.
She was told they’re gonna hold a tournament for the women’s tag titles and they wanted her to team with Lyons, over more experience teams like Toxic Attraction or Kayden and Katana, but she held great pride in representing NXT. But she didn’t get to make that far, because she got hurt in her title match and wasn’t cleared.
Nikkita walked into the trainer’s room and put her hand on her shoulder and said it’s okay, accidents happen and she’s not mad. Zoey says she’s not the weak link, she didn’t get hurt training or doing stupid videos for social media, she got hurt fighting one of the most dominant champions they’ve had. So she put Nikkita on her back and carried her ass through the training and all she asked was one simple thing.
Take a fraction of the work, lighten her load just a little bit, but no, all she got was endless apologies instead of results. She was angry, but she’s not anymore, because when she held the tag titles last week, she knew exactly what she was going to do.
She’s done being leeched off of, she’s tired and she’s done being part of the solution, and she’s a huge part of the problem. She didn’t get famous posing on the beach or doing some ridiculous dance on social media, she busted her ass in this ring! And for everyone clapping and nodding along, screw you.
She’s the future, and she is undeniable. She’s the hunter while every female back there is the prey.
Duke Hudson meets with Andre Chase in his office.
Chase asks why he threw the towel in and if he wanted him to lose. Duke says it’s a fair question giving his track record, but the truth is Andre was in so much pain and he was worried for him because he doesn’t know the meaning of the word “quit.” If he goes down, they go down, and the entire university is on the shelf!
If people want to say he cares too much about Chase University, that he bleeds black and red, then good. Guilty as charged! Thea Hail rolls up for her own business with Mr. Chase and Hudson excuses himself.
We see Sanga and Veer Mahaan getting ready backstage and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Apollo Crews rolls up on Bron Breakker in the locker room.
He says he came back to win the title, and he knows Bron is hurting but he wants him to watch what he does in the ring, because when one challenge ends, another beings.
Ariel Dominguez & George Cannon vs. Indus Sher (Sanga & Veer Mahaan)
Sanga working Cannon over, chucking him around with ease, Mahaan tags in and forces Dominguez in and they take their time about it but there was only one way this could end...
Indus Sher win by pinfall with a Demolition Decapitation on Ariel Dominguez.
Post-match, Veer gets on the mic.
He calls the Creed Brothers out and says they respect them, and the NXT universe respects the Creeds, but they don’t respect them. In India they’re celebrities, but here in America, no one cares, and the only way to get respect is by destroying the competition, and that’s what they’re gonna do.
The Creeds are shown watching in their locker room and they say if they’re gonna hit, they’ll hit back harder. Ivy Nile and Tatum Paxley roll up and Ivy gives them a pep talk about coming back for the titles. Julius says they won’t just ignore Indus Sher challenging them, and then they’ll go for the tag titles.
JD McDonagh makes his entrance and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Wendy Choo is interviewed.
She calls Cora Jade a petulant child who’s never gonna change, and she said things that aren’t true, but she also said things she hasn’t heard since high school and that opened some old wounds, but she knows she’s wacky and she wants Cora to look in the mirror after she gives her two black eyes.
Apollo Crews vs. JD McDonagh
Circling, Crews goes behind, waistlock takedown, back and forth with a hammerlock, headlock takeover, kickout. Off the ropes, McDonagh takes him down, elbow drop, whip across and Apollo lands a back body drop! Off the ropes, duck a lariat, shoulder block connects and JD crashes out of the ring!
Crews follows after him and slams him into the announce desk to send us to break!
Back from commercial, Crews counters a sleeper by falling off the turnbuckles but McDonagh locks it right back in! To the floor, Apollo with an Asai Moonsault, throwing him back inside, a couple of powerbombs... NOT ENOUGH! Clobbering Crews in the corner as he recovers, action to the floor, Penalty Kick sets up an Asai Moonsault of his own!
Back inside, both men down and out, small package, back and forth, nobody can keep the other down! Off the ropes, running Spanish Fly and JD is running hot! Knee gets a headbutt, sunset flip, powerbomb reversed into a sunset flip of his own... CREWS KICKS OUT!
Off the top with a moonsault, nobody home, Apollo nails him with a spinebuster... IT’S OVER!
Apollo Crews wins by pinfall with a spinebuster.
Mandy Rose is interviewed backstage.
She says she’s fended off every challenge because she’s a one in a million superstar, and with or without her girls, the title is staying with her.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, Javier Bernal is interviewed.
He says he’s new but he’s not gonna wait for opportunities, so he’s gonna issue some challenges. He wants to fight the guy who’s gonna bring out the best of him and push him, and that’s Axiom, because he’s a jam-up guy. When the interview tries to point out that Axiom is hurt he deflects before switching to Ilja Dragunov, who is also hurt.
He says if Big Body Javi challenged him, he’d run back to Germany, and he challenges Gallus, who are suspended. Bernal says she’s holding him back from unlocking his potential and that’s just not right.
Booker T is in the ring to introduce Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams for our contract signing, followed immediately by Wes Lee.
T says he’s a fan of both men and Hayes says it’s an honor to be part of Booker’s fave five, because real recognize real. Wes says both Booker and Melo need to understand that he’s not the A Champion anymore, he’s the ex-champion, but he can hold onto that for as long as he likes.
Book has some questions before they sign the contract, and says Hayes is on the precipice of becoming a three-time NXT Champion. No question is asked, and Carmelo says he’s relentless and next week this fifteen minutes of sympathy and attention is over for Lee.
Wes says if you told him a year ago they’d be sitting here, he wouldn’t have believed it, but he took the hand the universe dealt him and played it and climbed the ladder to become a champion. And next week, he shows the world that he’s the new standard as North American Champion, and he’ll risk everything to keep it.
They sign the contract and Booker says next week it’ll be on. Trick talks some trash and gets Lee’s hackles up, Carmelo says he’s ready to fight, and T says it ain’t going down like that. Nobody’s dropping nobody tonight, they can save the drama for their mama.
We get another vignette for the returning Dominik Dijakovic.
Briggs and Jensen make their entrance with Fallon Henley and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Odyssey Jones is hanging out backstage with Edris Enofe and Malik Blade.
Jones asks what the deal is with the sweater vest, and Enofe says it belonged to his best friend, his dad, who always dressed great and bought him his first sweater vest before he passed, so he wears them to honor him.
Briggs and Jensen (Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs) vs. the Dyad (Jagger Reid & Rip Fowler)
Fowler and Jensen to start, collar and elbow, Rip gets him in the corner and works him over, quick tag, Brooks with a leapfrog and a tag and Briggs runs Reid ove with a lariat! Babyfaces working tags now, but the Dyad suck them into the floor and Jensen’s in a bad way.
He gets the tag, Josh lights everybody up with boots and dives on Fowler before hitting a pop-up haymaker on Jagger! Back inside, diving lariat on Rip, a slam and splash and he’s fired up! Jensen gets distracted on the floor by Kiana James attacking Fallon Henley and the Dyad take advantage...
The Dyad win by pinfall with a double Codebreaker on Josh Briggs.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get an announcement from “Heartbreak Man” Shawn Michaels.
He says NXT is about progress and NXT Deadline will feature a new match, the Iron Survivor Challenge. There’ll be a men’s version and a women’s version, and it’s a five-person 25-minute staggered-entry Iron Man match where winning a fall earns a point and losing one puts you in the penalty box.
Indi Hartwell vs. Tatum Paxley
Hartwell strong with strikes out the gate, Paxley turns her around but eats a hard whip to the corner! Blocking a hip toss but Indi drops her with a lariat! Hartwell with a reverse chinlock, trying a cover, no dice. Tatum to the floor, tripping her up, landing a forearm from the apron, following it with a kick and smashing Indi’s face into the turnbuckles!
A couple elbows, a swinging neckbreaker, corkscrew standing moonsault... NOPE! Indi comes right back at her and takes her protective face-mask off...
Indi Hartwell wins by pinfall with an elbow strike.
Another cryptic SCRYPTS video follows to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Roxanne Perez intercepts Indi Hartwell backstage to congratulate her on her match and ask if she didn’t go too far taking Tatum Paxley’s mask off, with her broken nose and everything.
Indi says she’s doing everything she can to get into the Iron Survivor Match.
Commentary hypes next week’s show up.
Alba Fyre vs. Mandy Rose (c) (NXT Women’s Championship Last Woman Standing Match)
Fyre heading right after her, Rose bails and tries to catch her with the knee on her return but Alba blocks! Mandy runs away again and Fyre throws a suicide dive! Trading shots into the apron, Rose slams Alba into a chair on the floor and referee Darryl Sharma administers his count!
Back in the ring, Fyre uses the crossbar of a chair to wrench in a half-crab something vicious and we go to break!
Back from commercial, now Rose has the crossbar in Fyre’s mouth for a crossface but she fights out and gets some momentum with strikes. Gourdbuster sets up a couple knees, action to the floor, Mandy rams a ladder into Alba against the barricade a few times but she beats the count!
In and back out, Rose throws her over the barricade and climes after to throw elbows! Trading wild right hands, Alba perches on the barricade but Mandy shoves her off and into the steel steps! Fyre with a baseball bat shot, bringing the ladder around and setting it up, she climbs up top... ISLA DAWN IS HERE?!
She spits mist at Alba and sends her crashing through the announce table, Rose barely gets to her feet...
Mandy Rose wins, retaining the NXT Women’s Championship.
That’s the show, folks.
