A world of chaos, a world of fear, a world of anger and corruption. When all is lost and millions starve, is this humanity’s destruction? Don’t look at me, I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with the Schism on the stage and making their way to the ring.

Cameron Grimes vs. Joe Gacy

Gacy in with kicks, whip across, leapfrog into a takedown and Grimes blasts him with a boot in the corner! Joe turns things around, boot of his own, uppercuts and stomps, overhead elbow into an uppercut, snapmare, cover... NOPE! Putting boots to him, whip across, crossbody connects and Cameron lays mounted punches in.

Whip across, hip toss into a neckbreaker and Gacy gets a two count! Choking Grimes in the corner, he fires back with body blows, Joe with a right hand that sends him to his knees! Whip across, fireman’s carry, Cameron slips out, O’Connor roll comes up empty and he kicks Gacy in the ropes!

Penalty Kick off the apron and we go to break!

Back from commercial, trading body blows, back elbow backbreaker into stomps from Gacy, raining elbows down, Grimes with the crossbody powerslam but not enough werewithal to make a cover! Up and over, off the ropes, flying elbow, big boot sends Jagger Reid flying and a kick combo sets Joe up for a German suplex!

Cameron up top, diving crossbody, to the floor and back in, up top again but Ava Raine knocks him down! Gacy capitalizes...

Joe Gacy wins by pinfall with the handspring lariat.

Backstage, Nathan Frazer leaves the trainer’s room and Axiom asks what the news is.

Frazer says it’ll be a couple more weeks, and Axiom reassures him he’ll be back before he knows it.

JD McDonagh rolls up to tell Axiom he knows nothing about pain, and says Nathan probably has a herniated disc at C4, but hey, silver lining, Axiom wouldn’t have done any better in that ladder match. Axiom asks if he’d call that pulling a McDonagh, and JD challenges him to a match to send us to break.

Back from commercial, we see Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark arriving at the Performance Center.

We get a segment of Carmelo Hayes hanging out and talking about what’s next.

He points out he was never pinned once for his title and he puts respect on Wes Lee, but until he beats him, he’s a paper champion. So next week, they’re gonna have a contract signing and make the match official.

Commentary is talking when the lights go down and we get another cryptic SCRYPTS video.

Elektra Lopez vs. Sol Ruca

Circling, Lopez with a mat slam, Ruca returns the favor, follows it with palm strikes, whip reversed, X-Factor but Elektra rolls to the floor! She cuts Sol off with a big lariat, back inside, cover for two! Front kick, whip to the corner, short-arm lariat, knees to the spine and an elbow drop for two!

Lopez with a reverse chinlock, slamming Ruca to the mat when she threatens to get to her feet, reversed to a pin for two! Sol with a schoolboy, no dice, lariats, dropkick, whip reversed, run through a lariat, pounce from the rookie! Handspring Stinger Splash, up top, Elektra pulls her down to the mat!

Hoisting her up...

Elektra Lopez wins by pinfall with a sitout chokebomb.

Post-match, Indi Hartwell attacks Lopez and they fight on the floor as referees try and separate them!

We go backstage with Chase U, where Thea Hail is real excitable and she wants to go after Charlie Dempsey. Duke Hudson says he learned from getting sent to the back and asks if he can be ringside with Thea to support, and only support, Andre Chase as he fights Dempsey tonight.

Chase is excited to give Charlie a Chase U ass-whooping and they march off together to send us to break.

Back from commercial, we see Jacy Jayne facetiming with Mandy Rose about how nervous she is to go to the arena because of Alba Fyre.

A “mall cop” pulls up behind Jacy and pulls her out of the car, screaming.

It’s Alba Fyre, who slides in and tells Mandy that she’s taking each of them out— Gigi last week, Jayne this week, and next week, Rose herself.

Andre Chase vs. Charlie Dempsey

Collar and elbow, Chase with a wristlock, Dempsey reverses to a cravate, snapmare, off the ropes, leapfrog, back roll into a monkey flip and Andre clotheslines him ot the floor! Front chancery, rolling through, Charlie with a northern lights suplex and he transitions to a double wristlock!

Andre reverses to a pin, only two, right hand jabs, axehandle takes Dempsey off his feet! Manhattan Drop, whip reversed, reversed, side Russian legsweep! CHASE U stomps, Charlie with a leg pick, stepover tolehold, hammering elbows, looking for a chickenwing while Thea cheers Andre on!

Duke Hudson takes a towel from her and throws it in!

Charlie Dempsey wins by submission when Duke Hudson throws the towel in.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a segment with Briggs and Jensen at the bar with Fallon Henley when Kiana James walks in looking to buy the place.

She and Henley go back and forth but Fallon doesn’t want to sell and kicks her and her assistant out.

Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo vs. Hank Walker

Trading punches early, Lorenzo backs him into the corner, Walker throws him around and hip tosses him across the ring! Whip to the corner, up and over, uppercut, shot off, shoulder block and Hank goozles him right over the ropes and to the floor! Back inside, Stacks pummeling him, Walker fires back with a lariat and mounted punches!

Fired up, Channing with a boot up but Hank pounces him clean across the ring and tears his shirt off! Stinger Splash, another, pushing Lorenzo into the corner where he thumbs Walker’s eye! Off the ropes...

Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo wins by pinfall with a running knee to the back of the neck.

Grayson Waller cuts a promo backstage.

He says don’t bother changing the channel, log into his Instagram, and start sending questions, because the Grayson Waller Effect is next, after the break.

Back from commercial, Grayson Waller welcomes us to his show.

He mocks R-Truth and introduces his guests, Von Wagner (accompanied by Robert Stone) and Bron Breakker.

Waller’s first comment is questioning why Von gets a title shot when the fans think he doesn’t deserve it over the likes of Carmelo Hayes and himself. Wagner addresses “Joe Blow” and says he’s not in charge, and Stone adds that the fans have never given Von a chance.

Wagner says he’s not here to be a fan favorite, and people can piss and moan all they want on social media, but he’s only here for the title. Bron admits that it looks like an even matchup on paper, but asks Von to try attacking him face to face instead of blindsiding him.

This gets Grayson to bring up a comment from somebody wanting to see anyone beat Breakker. Bron says a year ago he was up and coming and he’s learned from guys like Ciampa and Gargano that if you want something, you gotta go out and take it. The history of this title goes a long way, Seth Rollins, Shinsuke Nakamura, Kevin Owens, all in the same spot he is right now.

JD McDonagh and Apollo Crews want shots, but the one thing they all have in common is that no one is taking the title from him. Wagner says he’s dangerous and it took Tommaso Ciampa, LA Knight, and Pete Dunne to stop him in his first title shot, and Bron’s second generation?

Big deal, so is he, but he didn’t use it to get his foot in the door or get any stroke, and he is gonna use it to win the title next week. Bron says why not try right now and they square up. Breakker knocks Stone out without looking and stares Von down.

Backstage, Wes Lee is interviewed.

He can’t lie, losing last week hurt, but he’s thinking more about what Carmelo said in the barber shop earlier. He’s right, he was never pinned, but Wes was never supposed to be a singles guy, and now he’s gonna fight Hayes in two weeks and he’s gonna make Melo miss.

We see JD McDonagh and Axiom getting ready for their match and go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a promo from Cora Jade accusing Wendy Choo of being desperate for friendship, and the next time she wants to make a friend at her expense, she should think twice about it.

We get a Twitter video of Apollo Crews in Nigeria as part of the search for the next African superstar, but says you’re looking right at the next NXT Champion.

Axiom vs. JD McDonagh

Trading headlock takeovers and headscissors early, Axiom with a deathlock into a bridging surfboard, roll through to a kneeling surfboard and then to standing, McDonagh flips out of it but gets caught in a backslide for two! O’Connor roll, and JD barely dodges an enzuigiri!

Gory Special, into an inverted Romero Special, Axiom bridges up and converts to a sunset flip for two! Springboard arm drag, dropkick, McDonagh to the floor and Axiom clobbers him with a gamengiri to send us to break!

Back from commercial, McDonagh in control, targeting Axiom’s leg but the luchador gets an enzuigiri for separation! To the floor, Axiom with an Orihara Moonsault but he’s slow to capitalize! Both men barely beat the count, Arabian Press moonsault into a bodyscissors but JD gets the ropes!

McDonagh with a half-crab, Axiom fighting back with upkicks, JD turns it into a Boston Crab! Trading elbows, McDonagh with a moonsault but Axiom catches him and counters into a triangle choke! Counter powerbomb reversed into a Hurricanrana... NOPE! Penalty Kick follows, still no!

Looking for an armbar, JD reverses, compressing the knee, bending his leg wrong flat to the mat, referee breaking the hold to check, Axiom begs not to stop the match but he can’t get to his feet! Referee has no choice...

JD McDonagh wins by referee stoppage.

Post-match, McDonagh gets on the mic and says that’s a severe strain and not a tear, because he’s a nice guy. But he’s not such a nice guy when someone steps between him and the NXT Championship, just ask Ilja Dragunov, who’s still in the hospital. He begs someone in the locker room to get on his level and test him, and he’s looking at Apollo Crews.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a bumper for NXT Deadline and the promise that “Heartbreak Man” Shawn Michaels will have an update next week.

Brutus Creed vs. Damon Kemp

As a reminder, this match has a five-minute time limit.

Kemp in with shoulder thrusts, Creed with rights and lefts, he gets backed off but slides right back in for a belly-to-belly suplex! Shoulder block sends Damon crashing to the floor, the brawling continues, back inside and Kemp cuts him off and hammers him with a falling elbow!

Putting Brutus shoulder-first into the turnbuckles, grabbing a chair, back inside and Creed swats it away with an elbow. Raining strikes down, big senton, another one, now Brutus uses the chair and the referee has to call it...

Damon Kemp wins by disqualification.

Post-match, Brutus hits Kemp with the chair again!

Another T-Bar vignette follows.

Lyons and Stark make their entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Indi Hartwell runs into Roxanne Perez backstage.

Roxanne says she seems different and if she needs to talk, she’s here. Indi says she’s just turned the voltage up a little bit and there’s no friends in this business. It’s never gonna work that way and this conversation just proves it.

Commentary hypes up next week’s show.

Katana Chance & Kayden Carter (c) vs. Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark (NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship)

Stark and Chance to start, Zoey quickly bringing her into the corner for a quick tag, and the quick tags continue. Katana sidesteps, Carter runs interference and sets her up for a monkey flip, but Zoey lands on her feet and ends up eating a tijeras.

Tag to Kayden, handspring splash for two! Lyons in, short whip into the corner, scoop lift, Stark runs in, stereo slams get stereo upkicks! Tripping them up, to the floor, the champions in control and we go to break!

Back from commercial, champions still in control, Carter lighting Stark up, big dropkick, off the ropes, big boot lays Zoey out and Kayden follows it up with a plancha! Chance with a tornillo to Lyons, back inside, cover for two! Tag to Nikkita, clear the apron, throw Katana into the corner!

Sidestep the charge, Chance with a diving crossbody, Lyons rolls through and deadlifts her before tossing her aside! Tag to Stark, exploder suplex, buzzsaw roundhouse, cover for two! Into a bit of “everybody do something cool,” all four women down and out, malfunction at the junction, Lyons sacrifices herself but champions set Stark up...

Katana Chance & Kayden Carter win by pinfall with the 450 splash / neckbreaker combination on Zoey Stark to retain the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship.

Post-match, Stark clobbers Lyons with one of the tag titles! Sliding kick punctuates it and she throws the belt to Carter and Chance on the floor before posing over Nikkita’s fallen body.

That’s the show, folks.
