WWE NXT RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR MAY 10
Oh god, I want to live again. See, I’m just like you, baby, makes me crazy to languish in this purgatorial rot. Disappearing is eerie when you have to liveblog this here pro wrestling show, folks.
The show opens with a recap of Joe Gacy / Bron Breakker business.
Roxanne Perez & Wendy Choo vs. Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne)
Back from commercial, Choo is getting worked over but manages to get away and tag Perez in! Mounted punches, fired up, charging in, uppercuts, kick in the corner, up top but Mandy runs in and saves Gigi from the dive! Wendy takes Rose down, solebutt from Perez, Yoshi Tonic blocked with a superkick...
Toxic Attraction win by pinfall with a folding press from Gigi Dolin on Roxanne Perez.
We get footage of Grayson Waller and Tiffany Stratton out shopping on the town.
Joe Gacy is walking backstage to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Roderick Strong is working out when the Creed Brothers roll up.
They berate Roddy for getting involved in their tag match against the Viking Raiders last week, and they say next week they’re gonna wrestle the Vikings again and beat them the right way. Strong says he’s got a secret weapon to help them from the University of Minnesota, the newest member of Diamond Mine, Damon Kemp.
The Creeds tell him that new members are a group decision and they’ll talk about this later.
Joe Gacy makes his entrance flanked by two red robed figures and gets in the ring and on the mic.
He tells Bron Breakker that when he left him in the wilderness last week that he’d have to face the next chapter of his journey all along. His journey started months ago and showed that anyone, no matter who they are, could be a part of real change, but two men separated themselves from the pack and the rest are no more.
These two proved their worth to him and to themselves, going above and beyond and committed to his cause by taking that extra step. His cause and his message has been received, and these are the faces of change. Their expansion has begun, and change takes place one person at a time.
He appeals to Bron, offering a personal invitation and promising that he can join them and be a part of their movement, a part of this change, and the result is eternal joy. Affliction and hardship await those who resist.
Chase U are backstage when Sarray runs up and excitedly chatters in Japanese at them, offering a mixed tag against Waller and Stratton. Andre Chase doesn’t understand her, but Bodhi Hayward does, and he translates. Andre accepts the match and says he’s gonna go make it official.
We’re promised the beginning of the women’s breakout tournament, after the break.
Back from commercial, we get footage of the Ivy Nile Challenge, which is her leading a bunch of dudes in exercise challenges.
We see the entrants and the bracket for the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament.
Fallon Henley vs. Sloane Jacobs (NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament First Round Match)
Jacobs looking for pins early, Henley cuts her off with a dropkick, side headlock, shot off, shoulder block, off the ropes, duck a lariat, sidestep a dropkick and Fallon’s in control! Duck an elbow, whip across, up and over, drop down, dropkick and Sloane asserts herself but can’t put her down just yet.
Fallon’s pals Briggs and Jensen come down to cheer her on, I get distracted by Brooks Jensen’s absolutely bizarre “virginity rocks” shirt, back and forth jawbreakers, whip reversed, back elbow staggers Jacobs. Fallon charges in, double facebusters and both women are down and out!
Sloane throwing neckbreakers, cover for one?! Fireman’s carry, Henley slips out, neckbreaker drop connects! Sliding knee...
Fallon Henley wins by pinfall with a sliding knee.
Santos Escobar is interviewed backstage with Legado del Fantasma.
He says when you live in his world you treat disrespect with a swift response, and AJ Galante became fair game when he sat down to that meeting. Tony D’Angelo’s crew is gonna learn the hard way that you don’t just get in Legado’s business and walk away, or even walk again.
Another Alba Fyre vignette follows to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Cruz del Toro goes to start the car but Tony D’Angelo and goons pull him out and beat him down before putting him in the trunk of their own car to send a message, driving off with him.

Drop down trips her up, Penalty Kick... NOPE! KLR Bomb connects, Fyre up top...
Alba Fyre wins by pinfall with a senton atomico.
We see Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams engaging in some parking lot tomfoolery and go to break.
Back from commercial, Cora Jade is interviewed in a locker room.
She says she’s nervous to wrestle a legend in the main event tonight, but Natalya isn’t facing any past version of her, and she’s ready. Tonight she’s gonna bust the gate wide open and prove that she can hang with a future hall of famer.
Solo Sikoa makes his entrance and gets on the mic.
He says this is supposed to be Carmelo and Trick’s time, but it’s his time now. Everybody wants to come out here and talk about the North American Championship, but you already know who’s the best. If Melo wants a one-on-one shot, he’ll be right there watching, and he’ll let everyone know he’s got next.
He doesn’t care who he wins it from, because they can all get it.
Enter Cameron Grimes.
He says it’ll be him and Hayes one-on-one at In Your House, but have no fear— after he beats Carmelo, Sikoa has his word that if he wants a title shot, he’s got it. Solo walks away, Williams and Hayes hit the ring and jump Grimes as Sikoa walks away!
They grab a chair, Solo turns to watch the beatdown and decides to make the save!
We see the rest of Legado walking in the parking lot when they realize Cruz del Toro isn’t at the car like he’s supposed to be. Santos Escobar says he knows what this is and makes a call to Tony D’Angelo.
Tony picks up and Santos tells him that whoever did this to del Toro made a huge mistake. D’Angelo threatens to beat him so bad nobody will recognize him, and Escobar drops a censored “fuck you” on him before hanging up.
We get some entrances and go to break.
Back from commercial, Nathan Frazer is interviewed backstage when Xyon Quinn interrupts.
Wes Lee interrupts the interruption and ends up booking a match between himself and Quinn.
Chase U are walking backstage with Sarray when she busts out grandma’s medallion and becomes the Warrior of the Sun through her entrance, with Bodhi Hayward ending up with her pigtails and glasses somehow.

Dudes starting, Waller with a wristlock and the advantage, Chase reverses and hits an arm wringer! Side headlock, shot off, shoulder block, tags made and Stratton cuts Sarray off at the pass! Wristlock, Sarray reverses, Indian Deathlock, falling back, the match breaks down and we get a Teachable Moment as we go to break.
Back from commercial, heels running hot, Waller with a diving elbow... SARRAY BREAKS IT UP! Inside cradle for two, leg picks, duck the enzuigiri, Grayson tries to put a sleeper hold on but Chase struggles and keeps him from getting all of it! Andre reverses, shot off, Waller grabs the sleeper again, sleeper slam and both men are down and out!
Tag to the women, Sarray lighting her up with chops, running dropkick, another one, Waller interference and he gets nailed with the Sun Ray dropkick! Tiffany takes advantage, big slam, slingshot, corkscrew Vader Bomb but Sarray gets a foot on the ropes! Stratton takes Bodhi Hayward out with a plancha, she returns to the ring...
Andre Chase & Sarray win by pinfall with a folding press from Sarray on Tiffany Stratton.
We see more of the Ivy Nile challenge as she leads the remaining men in lunges with weights on their shoulders.
Von Wagner and Robert Stone are interviewed backstage.
Wagner makes Stone answer, and he says if you step to Von Wagner, you get thrown to the audience and put on the shelf for four months, or have your hand broken for eight weeks on the shelf, or—
Ikemen Jiro attacks and waylays the big man, leading to a pull-apart with referees and trainers (hey, Norman Smiley!) and we go to break.
Back from commercial, we get a hype reel for WWE’s partnership with the Special Olympics.
Toxic Attraction roll up on Indi Hartwell, faking sympathy about her husband leaving and mocking her when she mistakes it for actual compassion.
Arianna Grace vs. Nikkita Lyons (NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament First Round Match)
Grace with a forearm, Lyons returns a kick, blocks the leg pick, backslide for a quick nearfall. Gator roll, Arianna reverses to an armbar, ducks a kick, and stalemate! Grace with an armbar, Nikkita clasps her hands to block before hitting a short powerbomb to get out of it!
Grace with a backhammer into the corner, wrenching Lyons arm over the ropes, dropping an elbow into it a few times, Anaconda Vise applied, back to the arm work, Nikkita whips her into the corner and then hits an elbow before laying her out with kicks! German suplex, it’s over...
Nikkita Lyons wins by pinfall with the splits leg drop.
We get more Ivy Nile Challenge business, with only one man still hanging with her as she does pull-ups with a chain around her neck.
A Cora Jade video package follows and we go to break.
Back from commercial, the Viking Raiders cut a promo accepting the Creed Brothers’ challenge and saying they respect their honor but when the bell rings, respect and honor are put to the side, and the raid is coming.
Cora Jade vs. Natalya
Collar and elbow, Natalya shoves her away and grabs a side headlock. Kip-up escape, stalemate, Jade holding her own and giving Neidhart a fight here. Front kick, Jade with palm strikes, springboard Frankensteiner sends Nattie sprawling, picking the leg but Neidhart fights to the ropes and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Jade in control but Natalya is able to sling her off and smash her face into the mat. Looking for the Romero Special, Cora fights out and paintbrushes her with a slap! Whip to the corner, trying to slide under but Nattie hosses her up only for Jade to slip out.
Right hands, big arm drag, running knee in the ropes, step-up tornado DDT and Cora is feeling it, cover... NOPE! Neidhart taking control of the match, working the legs, posting Jade’s knees into the ringpost! Figure four around the post, Cora manages to pull away and put Nattie’s head into the post but the damage is done!
Back inside, Jade with a small package for two, Natalya with forearms, float over a slam, kick into a low-angle enzuigiri, Cora hobbling but still fighting, slingshot stomp to the back, cover... NOT ENOUGH! Shiranui follows, cover.. STILL NO! Jade picks the legs and gets the Sharpshooter on Neidhart!
Up top, missile dropkick blocked and Nattie has the Sharpshooter in the middle of the ring! Cora fighting, desperate, crawling, reaching, Neidhart pulls her back into the middle of the ring and sits down but still she fights! Reaching, so close, Nattie readjusts again, Jade has nowhere to go but she won’t give!
Natalya wins by referee stoppage with the Sharpshooter.
Post-match, Nattie kneels down and shakes Jade’s hand before pulling her up for a hug.
That’s the show, folks.
