The first hellrider came on wings of plenty in the dark, poured out his poison and he blew away his mark, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens right into our opening match.

Diamond Mine (Brutus Creed, Julius Creed, & Roderick Strong) vs. Imperium (Fabian Aichner, GUNTHER, & Marcel Barthel)

GUNTHER blasts Roddy with a boot before the bell and we get a pier six brawl! Settling down, relatively, Aichner and Brutus going at it, windmill punches and shoulder blocks, Creed with a waistlock takedown that sets up a Karelin lift! Julius tags in, putting boots to Fabian!

Barthel tags in, locking Creed down with an armbar, Imperium working a heat segment but Strong tags in and lights Aichner up with forearms! Marcel in to cut him off, and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Diamond Mine have turned the tide and are working Barthel over. He gets away, tag to Aichner, tag to Julius, double spinebuster, GUNTHER and Roddy in and we’re off! Strong firing off vicious chops, GUNTHER catches a knee, Roddy ducks a chop but gets caught on the rebound!

Tag to Brutus, overwhelming GUNTHER with strikes but a well-placed back elbow wipes Creed out! Tag team components brawling on the floor, Brutus returns and gets caught with the sleeper by the Ring General! Creed slings him off, runs the ropes but GUNTHER swats his lariat out of the air!

Clubbing overhand chop sets up a powerbomb, folding press...

Imperium win by pinfall with a folding press from GUNTHER on Brutus Creed.

We get an “earlier today” promo from LA Knight.

He calls Grayson Waller out and says he’s got hell to pay when Joe Gacy and Harland appear behind him.

Gacy relates Harland’s experience getting past an unfair restraining order and offers help in solving his problem. Knight suggests they all go out to the ring together and he’ll stomp their asses himself.

Toxic Attraction collect their title belts backstage and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Toxic Attraction make their entrance and get on the mic.

Gigi Dolin calls Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta’s win last night a fluke and a death sentence, and Jacy Jayne says they’ll put the tag titles on the line in two weeks at Vengeance Day.

Enter Kay Lee Ray.

She says it’s Mandy’s turn to give her the title match that she wants, and she declines. Ray says she thought she’d say that so she wants to have some fun, and threatens them all with the bat. Rose tells her to put the bat down and Jayne and Dolin will leave, and they do.

KLR says she’s the longest-reigning women’s champion of the modern era, and if anyone deserves a title shot, it’s here. Mandy says she doesn’t care and she wants to talk about herself, asking Kay if she knows any of her accomplishments. She’s been the face of multiple international campaigns, seven magazine covers, bikini world champion, and she claims to be the epitome of what every woman aspires to be and what every man wishes he could be with.

(Well I’m going more for “Donna Reed but if she was a lesbian” but...)

KLR reminds her of when she was sucking face with Otis, and Mandy says that was then and she’s the hottest thing going now. She wants to be completely transparent in the nicest way possible— all the talent in the world will never replace her body. Kay says she’ll have her title match by the end of the night and slaps Rose across the face!

Cora Jade is interviewed backstage.

She wants this match to prove to Raquel Gonzalez that she’s tough enough and they have a real chance to win the Dusty. Raquel rolls up and says she can still back out, but Cora is sure she wants the match.

Gonzalez makes her entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, we see Toxic Attraction leaving the arena and Mandy says there’s no way she’s giving KLR a title shot. Jacy and Gigi get in the car but the door is locked for Mandy and the window goes down, revealing Kay Lee Ray, who says she’ll be back later and drives off.

Cora Jade vs. Raquel Gonzalez

Gonzalez runs over Jade with a lariat and gets her in a bear hug! Cora slips out, dropkick puts Raquel into the turnbuckles and Jade charges in with forearms! Gonzalez catches a monkey flip and slams her for two! Forearms in the corner, Cora off the ropes, big crossbody caught and countered into a Bossman Slam... NOPE!

Straight suplex, cover... SO CLOSE! Trapezius claw applied, Stunner to escape, big boot takes her right back down! Clubbing blows, Canadian backbreaker rack, wrenching in her arms before hitting an inverted Oklahoma stampede! Up in the turnbuckles, big right hand from Jade, diving crossbody but again Raquel catches her!

This time she’s got the Bossman Slam scouted and tries to reverse into a crucifix pin but Gonzalez blocks! Raquel hosses her up but Cora slips out! Jade with forearms on forearms, knuckle lock, step-up tijeras! Front kick caught, she gets Gonzalez with the enzuigiri, charging in but Raquel has her number...

Raquel Gonzalez wins by pinfall with the one-armed powerbomb.

Post-match, Raquel helps Cora up and tells her they’re gonna go and win the Dusty together.

Another magical girl Sarray vignette follows and sends us to break.

Back from commercial we get a Pete Dunne promo where he asks Tony D’Angelo how his hand is doing and says he handled his business.

And he wants to settle it with one more match, inside of a steel cage.

We see schoolgirl Sarray walking into some mist backstage and wrestling Sarray makes her entrance.

Kayla Inlay vs. Sarray

Sarray in control with a series of arm drags, sidestep, putting boots to her, getting ground down in a waistlock. Sarray recovers, forearms, Sun Ray...

Sarray wins by pinfall with Sun Ray.

We get a Duke Hudson vignette where he talks about making his own look.

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams are hanging out backstage.

Back from commercial, we see Bron Breakker warming up backstage when Tommaso Ciampa rolls up.

Tom talks about the mountaintop being lonely and how you can’t understand until you’ve been there, and now Bron understands. Ciampa says he wants to make sure Breakker remains champion, and Bron says they’ll gonna break the Legados in half tonight.

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams make their entrance and get on the mic.

They say Cameron Grimes thinks he’s ready for the A Champion, but he’s not. Hayes says the old him would come out here and put Cameron in the grave verbally, but no, he sees Grimes as a threat. He knows it’s hard to believe, but he does, and that’s why he’s going harder in the gym, putting more work in the ring, and spending more time with Ollie Jayy, because that’s what the A Champ does.

He sets the standard, and that’s all that is and all that’s—

Enter Cameron Grimes.

He says he had to come out here because he heard Hayes say the people don’t care about him, but here they are chanting “to the moon!” for him. Trick says he should whoop his slimey— Cameron corrects him with Grimey and mocks Trick’s haircut for looking like Spongebob’s house.

Cameron asks who he’s supposed to be fighting, and Carmelo gets in his face and says at Vengeance Day, you’ll find out he really is like that, and he’s gonna shoot for the moon and hit the stars as casualties. Grimes fires back with his own catchphrase.

Edris Enofe and Malik Blade are backstage workshopping tag team names, but they can’t agree whose name goes first. Enofe wants to go with Team BBC, but Blade shuts him down for obvious reasons and they get to talking about Mandy Rose, who bumbles into the ring and into his lap.

Kay Lee Ray follows and the tag lads cower while Mandy runs away.

LA Knight makes his entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Diamond Mine are interviewed.

Malcolm Bivens says without struggle there is no progression, and they’re going to move forward by winning the Dusty and challenging Imperium for the tag titles.

Grizzled Young Veterans roll up to tell them they need to focus and they’re going to win.

Joe Gacy vs. LA Knight

Knight with a neckbreaker out the gates, putting boots to Gacy in the corner, running knee, Joe trips him into the corner and clobbers him with a lariat before hitting a true uranage! LA whips him across, Gacy cuts him off with a forearm and hits a back suplex right after!

Overhead elbow, right hands, knees in the ropes! Sidestep a corner avalanche, another jumping neckbreaker gets Knight back into it, scoop and a slam, big elbow drop and LA Knight is fired up! Front kick, blocked, sending Knight to the floor where Sanga comes over and Grayson Waller dives out of nowhere to hit the Ace Crusher!

Referee counting, LA can’t get back to his feet at first but makes it in at the last second! Gacy is waiting...

Joe Gacy wins by pinfall with a handspring lariat.

Post-match, Grayson Waller lands a few disdainful kicks on Knight and says this is his NXT and LA doesn’t belong. Knight starts to fight back but Sanga slams him! Grayson says if LA wants to put hands on him, he needs to beat Sanga next week and maybe he’ll think about ending the restraining order.

Wendy Choo is walking backstage and Tiffany Stratton looks on to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Robert Stone cuts a promo backstage with Von Wagner.

He says he’s gladly paid Wagner’s fines and he will again and again because he’s the future of WWE.

We see footage from earlier of Tiffany Stratton complaining to Amari Miller about Wendy Choo and offers to take her shopping if she takes Choo out.

Amari Miller vs. Wendy Choo

Choo falls asleep with a leglock on Miller and turns it into an ankle lock after Amari kicks her to try and break it. Backslide pin, nope, sleepytime elbow drop, only two! Miller grabs a Cobra Clutch, Wendy fights to her feet and lays in a couple strikes, big lariat, whip across, overhead belly-to-belly suplex!

Handspring Stinger Splash, fisherman suplex, Amari with a Codebreaker to cut her off but she can’t put Wendy Choo down! Tiffany Stratton slides her her credit card but a confused Miller gets rolled up for two! Choo comes in...

Wendy Choo wins by pinfall with a Shotei.

Post-match, Tiffany demands the card back but Amari doesn’t have it because Wendy Choo walked off with it!

Indi Hartwell (with Dexter Lumis) rolls up to talk with Persia Pirotta about their title match, but Persia wants to talk about Duke Hudson, who she is apparently into, but Dexter doesn’t think he’s attractive.

Brooks Jensen rolls up to ask for relationship advice on how to proceed with Kayden Carter, and Indi says most dudes talk too much, and nonverbal communication is key. Lumis eyes her up and they go off to get in the hot tub together. Jensen takes notes and Persia leaves.

We see footage of the Performance Center at 2:23 AM, where we see Draco Anthony working out as he does a voiceover about his debut match, tonight.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Nikkita Lyons gets a video package where she talks up her background in the entertainment business, with her dad a bassist and her mom a groupie and her own career as a singer.

Sarray is interviewed backstage.

She dedicates her win to grandma and says she can do anything when she wears her necklace.

Dakota Kai rolls up and says she can see the necklace is important to her, and as warrior of the sun she must know that no matter how strong a relationship is, the sun always sets.

Andre Chase vs. Draco Anthony

Collar and elbow, stalemate, Chase with a neckbreaker, Anthony with a powerslam! Back and forth, Draco grabs the Chase U flag and waves it before stomping on it and grinding it into the mat! Bodhi Hayward saves the flag, Andre attacks and puts boots to him something unmerciful!

Putting him into the turnbuckles, hammerlock...

Andre Chase wins by pinfall with a hammerlock reverse STO.

Mandy Rose stumbles into catering and shooes everyone off before cracking a bottle of water and wondering where her girls are. Kay Lee Ray pops up behind the counter and dumps a whole-ass bowl of spaghetti on her before throwing a cake at her!

Legado del Fantasma make their entrance to send us to break.

Bron Breakker & Tommaso Ciampa vs. Legado del Fantasma (Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza)

Ciampa and Wilde to start, collar and elbow, Tom with a go-behind, arm wringer reverses, fireman’s carry takeover, Joaquin with a little shimmy and a taunt! Ciampa with a front kick, side headlock, shot off, Tom dances and hits a drop toehold right back into the headlock!

Tag to Mendoza, rolling solebutt, whip reversed, springboard up and over, nobody home, big dropkick put’s Ciampa into the ropes! Raul with a chop, Tom returns the favor and they trade chops at some length. Ciampa beats him down and puts boots to him until referee Aja Perera warns him off!

Mendoza bails before the knee can hit, tag to Wilde. Breakker tags in, drop down into a front chancery, shift to a side headlock, shot off, drop down, leapfrog, gator roll into a delayed vertical suplex and Tom cuts Raul off when he runs in and picks him up in a delayed vertical of his own! Stereo impacts and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Breakker has Wilde in a reverse chinlock to grind him down. Joaquin fights out, off the ropes, Bron destroys him with a lariat and he falls to the floor at Santos Escobar’s feet! Santos runs interference and Wilde takes control of Bron when action returns to the ring!

Working the champ over at length, eventually Breakker shrugs Wilde off and the path is clear! Ciampa in hot with lariats, cleaning house, Bron tags back in but gets distracted by Escobar and Mendoza takes him out with a dropkick! Raul off the top, 450 splash... NOPE!

Putting boots to Breakker, whip reversed, sidestep the charge, springboard in, nobody’s home! Bron takes him off his feet with a vicious spear but Wilde breaks the pin up! Ciampa runs in to throw him out, big knee sends Mendoza flying! Ciampa throws Joaquin through the announce desk, Breakker has the military press...

Bron Breakker & Tommaso Ciampa win by pinfall with the military press powerslam from Breakker on Raul Mendoza.

Post-match, Tom raises Bron’s hand.

Santos stares the champ down from the apron and Breakker wants him right now!

Escobar does things on his own time and drops down to the floor.

Kay Lee Ray chases Mandy Rose into the ring after the boys clear out, and she’s not leaving until she gets her title match, and she wants it next week!

Rose gives her the match and KLR knocks her out with a superkick! KLR BOMB!

That’s the show, folks.
