You know you’re all alone, your friends, they aren’t at home, everybody’s gone to the garden. As you look into the trees, you can look, but you don’t see, flowers seem to tease you at the garden, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with a video package recapping the women’s championship scene of late with a Mandy Rose promo interwoven about how she demands respect and such.

The Creeds attack Grizzled Young Vets during their promo and we’re off!

Creed Brothers (Brutus & Julius Creed) vs. Grizzled Young Veterans (Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Semifinals)

Brutus and Drake to start but James bails to the floor and regroups! Back in, Gibson tags in, little bit of mat wrestling, Julius tags in and he gets cut off and isolated for a bit but waistlock takedowns put Drake on the back foot. Zack with a blind tag, Creed drops him with a dropkick and makes the tag!

Laying big knees into Gibson’s ribs, Karelin lift, but the GYV cut him off and knock him to the floor with a throat thrust! Catapult into the ring frame, the heat segment rolls on at length, and Brutus gets the tag! Coming in hot, big right hands for everybody, chop block takes Drake off his feet!

James gets a guillotine choke briefly, back body drop coutners, big poewrslam into a side press but Zack breaks it up! GYV get a Doomsday Device but Creed kicks out! Tags made, Brutus in on Gibson, trading forearms, big spinebuster into elbows and axehandles, Vets cut him off and make the tag, Drake up top but Brutus rams Gibson into him!

Julius outta nowhere, superplex on Drake, cartwheel powerslam on Zack but Brutus wants to finish him honest...

The Creed Brothers win by pinfall with a falling lariat from Brutus Creed on Zack Gibson.

We get a video package for Cora Jade and Raquel Gonzalez and I haul ass to the bathroom because this “limited commercials” nonsense is gonna erupt my bladder. My lovely wife Josie steps in for the next interview:

Backstage McKenzie Mitchell interviews Cora Jade

Cora is all bubbly and optimistic but is interrupted by two bitches with tiny white knot shirts (Valentina Feroz & Yulisa Leon —Claire) and then a giant Raquel Gonzalez. They trade barbs in Spanish.

We see footage of Amari Miller and Wendy Choo rolling up with the spoils from their Tiffany Stratton-fueled shopping trip earlier today.

Tiffany Stratton vs. Wendy Choo

Back and forth, Choo largely in control, sleeper hold (get it?), cartwheel gets cut off with a forearm, Tiffany screaming about a broken nail, putting boots to Wendy, slingshot...

Tiffany Stratton wins by pinfall with a corkscrew Vader Bomb.

Draco Anthony is backstage when Joe Gacy and Harland roll up.

Gacy tells him to keep his head up and to remember that he doesn’t have to do this all by himself. He’s here to listen, not just to his actions, but to his words.

Pete Dunne is interviewed backstage.

He says if we know one thing about Tony D’Angelo it’s that he talks too much, and since he lost to Cameron Grimes he’s gone quiet. But it must be difficult to Tweet when your fingers have been smashed by a cricket bat, and next week he’s going to finish this where it started, inside of a steel cage.

Draco Anthony rolls up to tell Dunne he respects him and it’s an honor to be in the ring with him. He offers a handshake but Pete says he’s still gonna snap his fingers and storms off.

Draco Anthony vs. Pete Dunne

Back from commercial, match in progress, Anthony in control with a side headlock while Gacy and Harland look on from the crowd. Dunne reverses, shot off, shoulder block, suplex attempt blocked, Draco gets his own! Stepping on Pete’s hand, Dunne stomps Anthony’s hands in return!

Backhammer, grabbing the far hand, wrenching the fingers and then stomping the shoulder! Bending the arm to the mat, stomp the bicep, arm wringer, Anthony fires forearms to block and Pete drops him with a single elbow of his own! Kneeling armbar applied, shifting to another grip, chops and punches ensue!

Draco firing up, steeling himself, short-arm lariat takes the Bruiserweight off his feet! Corner lariat, big elbow, back suplex lift dropped into a facebuster... NOPE! Back body drop, Pete rolls to the floor and cuts Anthony off at the apron with an enzuigiri! Tony D’Angelo outta nowhere with a crowbar but Dunne runs him off!

Back in, cutting Draco off, pumphandle...

Pete Dunne wins by pinfall with Bitter End.

Post-match, D’Angelo grabs a sleeper but Dunne breaks it by wrenching the fingers on his injured hand! Pete goes under the ring for plunder and throws a few chairs and a trash can in the ring before getting on the mic.

He says Tony will need more than a crowbar to beat him at Vengeance Day, and suggests hanging weapons on the walls and weaponizing their steel cage match!

Backstage, Zoey Stark tries to have a serious conversation with Io Shirai about the Dusty Classic.

She runs down the teams involved and Io asks why she’s telling her this. Zoey says she knows Shirai wants the titles back and Io admits she’s right. Stark’s knee is still jacked up, so she needs to find a new tag partner who will meet Shirai on her level.

LA Knight makes his entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Wendy Choo is limping along when she runs into Dakota Kai going through her shopping haul from earlier.

Dakota tells her these clothes won’t buy her a victory and scampers off.

LA Knight vs. Sanga

Knight gets in Sanga’s face and jaws at him, right hands, whip blocked, Sanga takes him into the corner and puts boots to him. Action to the floor, Grayson Waller cackling and cheering his man on, but LA slips away and puts Sanga into the post! Back inside, snapmare driver blocked and the big man drops an elbow for two!

Knight running the ropes trying to take Sanga off his feet, to the apron, springboard dropkick... NOPE! Waller running interference, LA manages to land a throat thrust and put Sanga into the turnbuckles...

LA Knight wins by pinfall with a jumping neckbreaker.

Post-match Waller attacks and Knight fights him off, restraining order lifted! Snapmare driver connects!

Duke Hudson is interviewed backstage.

He says there’s a difference between talking and actually stepping up to him, and Dante Chen isn’t as tough as he thinks he is and there’s a reason he’s not here tonight. He wishes Indi Hartwell good luck in her tag title match next week and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Legado del Fantasma are in the ring with Wade Barrett.

Barrett introduces Santos Escobar as the #1 contender for the NXT Championship before introducing Bron Breakker, who gets to actually make his entrance on TV.

Bron says he knows how contract signings go so let’s flip the table and get the fight over with. They bicker—

Enter Dolph Ziggler.

He takes Wade’s seat at the table and props his feet up before getting on the mic. He talks up the moment and says he works Tuesdays now and time is money, so he’s got one thing to say to Breakker— who the hell are you? Bron says he’s the NXT Champion and the reason he’s here, and he’ll handle Dolph after he handles Escobar.

Ziggler says that’s a bad move and lists off some of his accolades over the years, and every hundred matches or so one goes his way, and we all know what he can do any day of the week. All those accolades and yet he’s never won that NXT Championship, and he doesn’t have to be better or smarter than Bron, he just has to be in his head, like he is right now.

Enter Tommaso Ciampa.

He says he’ll be honest, Dolph Ziggler as NXT Champion is a hard pass, and gets in his face, asking if he can call him kid before proceeding to do just that. He loves Dolph’s spirit, but if he’s going to walk into his home— Santos has had enough and gets up to ask what’s going on.

He tells Ciampa that he doesn’t buy the frenemies act and tells Ziggler he doesn’t go here, but once he becomes the new NXT Champion, he’s gonna handle Dolph and Tom himself. Ciampa tells him not to interrupt him again or he might not make it to Vengeance Day.

Dolph says the same few hundred Floridians come to NXT to clap like seals, and when does it end? When do the helment and elbow pads come off? Tommaso blasts him with a kick and takes him to the floor and they brawl! Breakker fights off the Legado and confronts Santos one on one!

Escobar charges in but LdF make the save and lay him out with superkicks! Bron gets slammed through the table and Santos says he’ll see him next week!

We get a Kay Lee Ray vignette where she talks about her upcoming title match.

Grayson Waller and Sanga are interviewed while they leave the arena.

Waller says he’s gonna get his vengeance next week, but not in a match, LA Knight is getting arrested for violating the restraining order, and karma is a bitch.

Sarray makes her entrance to send us to break.

Dakota Kai vs. Sarray

Back from commercial, Sarray with a schoolboy for two, half-crab applied but Kai gets the ropes for the break! Sidestep the Sun Ray dropkick, putting her in the corner, the running boots, cover... NOPE! Kicks, the Warrior of the Sun fires up, whip reversed, victory roll into a double stomp!

Another big dropkick, a two count, Dakota lands a Scorpion Kick, swinging inverted facebuster... NO GOOD! Sarray with a couple of nearfalls, trading pinning predicaments, nobody can get an edge! Kai pump kicks her into the corner, circling, sidestep, Sarray with a rolling solebutt!

Fired up, off the ropes... SUN RAY! Hooking her...

Sarray wins by pinfall with a Saito Suplex.

We get a Carmelo Hayes vignette where he’s hanging out with some pals and talking about his title reign.

Backstage, Indi Hartwell is on the phone when Persia Pirotta rolls up.

Persia is jealous that Duke Hudson wished Indi luck and not her, and Toxic Attraction roll up to taunt them. They have an old picture of Hartwell and Hudson hanging out and that gets Persia to attack! They brawl all around the locker room until referees show up to pull them apart and send us to break.

Back from commercial we get a Black History Month video package and another hype reel for Nikkita Lyons.

Josh Briggs is giving Brooks Jensen a pep talk to try and get him to go talk to Kayden Carter.

He walks over and invites her to hang out on Valentine’s Day, Kacy Catanzaro inserts herself and Jensen begs Briggs to take her to the movies so he can get some alone time with Carter.

Edris Enofe & Malik Blade vs. MSK (Nash Carter & Wes Lee) (Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Semifinals Match)

Lee and Blade to start, circling, trading waistlocks, tags made, Enofe with a headscissors takeover but Carter pops right up! MSK running double-teams, and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Blade has Nash locked down with a rear chinlock. Carter fights to his feet, back elbows, uppercut, tag to Lee! Wes in hot and flippy, charging forearm, inverted exploder suplex out of the corner! Double knees, tag to Carter, assisted double stomp spinebuster and Blade breaks it up!

Malik with a big tope con giro, Edris with a schoolboy for two! Tag to Blade, off the ropes, suplex lift, Malik finishes it with a neckbreaker, tag to Enofe, off the top with a diving splash but Wes breaks it up! MSK running roughshod, tag made, blockbuster Hart Attack...

MSK win by pinfall with a Blockbuster Hart Attack on Edris Enofe.

MSK and the Creed Brothers stare each other down with the Dusty Cup in the middle, the finals are set!

A Cameron Grimes vignette follows.

A hype reel for WWE 2K22 sends us to break.

Back from commercial, Dakota Kai is wandering backstage when she runs into Wendy Choo.

Choo tells her it’s not as easy as it looks and leaves her confused and whispering to herself.

Commentary hypes up next week’s card.

Persia Pirotta and Indi Hartwell attack Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin while they’re walking Mandy Rose to her entrance and she has to leave them behind!

Kay Lee Ray vs. Mandy Rose (c) (NXT Women’s Championship)

Ray right in with chops, a snapmare, more chops and Rose gets a Lou Thesz Press into mounted punches! Kay with forearms, a tornado DDT, perched up top but Mandy rolls to the floor! KLR with a suicide dive, back inside, cover for two! Whip to the corner, charging forearm, whip reversed and Rose smashes the back of her head into the turnbuckle!

Smashing her head over and over, the champion in control, whip reversed, duck a lariat, cover... NOPE! Bodyscissors applied to grind the challenger down and we get an update on the tag team champions, who have been escorted out of the building along with their assailants.

Ray counters into a pin, trading nearfalls, big inverted slam from Mandy for two! Trading strikes, KLR backs her into the corner, Koji Clutch applied in the middle of the ring but Rose reverses to a pin to break! KLR Bomb reversed into a sunset flip for two! Underhooks from the champ, reversed, schoolboy for two!

Ray goes up top, Dolin and Jayne are back in the arena to run interference...

Mandy Rose wins by pinfall with a knee strike to retain the NXT Women’s Championship.

Post-match, Jacy gets KLR’s bat and gives it to Mandy. They hold her in place while Rose yells at her, but Io Shirai makes the save! Shotei takes the champ out, flapjack to Gigi, and Jayne eats a Shotei as well! Tiger feint kick on Dolin, springboard missile dropkick takes the tag champs out!

Mandy returns but Kay Lee Ray is on her, KLR Bomb connects!

Toxic Attraction retreat while the babyfaces stand tall.

That’s the show, folks.
