WWE NXT RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR APRIL 5
One man rules the earth and rides the seven-headed beast, ten diadems to crown them all, the world religion at his feet. Dreams are told of dreams of old, this day will surely come. So, run my child and hide your face, and I’ll liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you.
The show opens with a recap of Stand & Deliver.
New NXT Champion Bron Breakker makes his entrance.
He gets on the mic and says his first WrestleMania weekend had lots of ups and downs, and pauses to let a “We want Ziggler! / No we don’t!” chant to play out. He talks about what an honor it was to induct his father and uncle into the WWE Hall of Fame, and how he lost his first match at Stand and Deliver, but then he watched WrestleMania and decided he wasn’t leaving Dallas without the title.
So he picked himself up, dusted himself off, and beat Dolph Ziggler’s ass in the middle of the ring.
GUNTHER says that nobody cares about any of this, and he only cares about the title and what it stands for, which is to say being the best in NXT. The issue is you can’t call yourself the best until you step in the ring with the Ring General, GUNTHER.
Bron says he’s had a hell of a weekend, but if he wants it, he’s got it, right here tonight!
The Creed Brothers make their entrance and we go to break.

Cameron Grimes is backstage with his new title belt as we go to break.
Back from commercial, we see Lash Legend and Nikkita Lyons preparing for their match.
Cameron Grimes is in the ring and he gets on the mic.
He says in the moment of his win time stood still and he thought about his father raising him alone and how he busted his ass to prove that his dad was right and he deserves to be a WWE superstar, so when he tells us that it’s so awesome to say he’s our new North American Champion, we can believe it.
But he’s not gonna be complacent, and he’s gonna make sure the title goes on multiple trips to the moon.
Enter Solo Sikoa.
He says now is the hard part, because Grimes has to hold on to the title, and championships run in his bloodline, so man to man, champions need challengers, and that man is him. Grimes says he respects him because he sees a man that’s fought every day to be standing here in this moment, and if he is what he says he is, that means he’s gotta beat people just like him.
They shake hands and square up.
Joe Gacy cuts a promo where he talks about how important it is to have someone you trust, who knows every side of you.

AJ Galante is in the ring to preside over Tony D’Angelo’s coronation as don of NXT or whatever.
Galante says there’s a card on the table with Tony’s blood that says that he’s ready to take the oath of the don. He enters this on his feet, but if he betrays his oath, he’ll leave on his back, and his loyalty can never be questioned. The code of silence can never be broken, and if he does break it, he’ll burn in hell.
He asks D’Angelo if he’s ready to accept the position, he is, and AJ presents him with a gold ring, he puts it on, and Galante pronounces him the new don of NXT. They toast to it.
MSK are interviewed backstage.
They say it’s been a five month odyssey of twists and turns but they finally have the titles back and they appreciate them in a way they couldn’t in their first reign, and they made the most noise of anyone at Stand & Deliver.
