WWE NXT RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR MAY 31
So the beast resides in me? Deep down I always knew. I never really did fit in, so diverse from all of you. Let him who comprehends know the number of the beast. It’s a number of a man, but me? I’m here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with Diamond Mine walking backstage.
Roderick Strong turns to them and says he forgot, the Creeds have the night off so they can just sit back and watch.
The Creed Brothers and Ivy Nile stew about it as Strong and Damon Kemp walk to the ring.
Diamond Mine (Damon Kemp & Roderick Strong) vs. Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson)
Prince and Strong to start, tag champs with an advantage, Kemp gets the tag and Roddy slaps him in the face to get him fired up! Big slam, vertical suplex, off the ropes, HUGE pounce! Reverse chinlock applied, tag back to Strong but he just ends up isolated again. It’s only a brief isolation, however, Kemp back in, running hot, fired up, Diamond Mine with double-teams and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Wilson has Kemp isolated, grinding him down with a reverse chinlock, tag to Prince but Damon gets away and tags Strong back in! Chops and forearms, lighting the champ up, backbreakers, Kit runs in but Roddy’s game to fight ‘em two on one! Julius Creed runs interference, Brutus with a cheap shot but Strong can’t keep ‘em down! Pretty Deadly get it together...
Pretty Deadly win by pinfall with Spilt Milk on Roderick Strong.
Cameron Grimes is backstage when Solo Sikoa rolls up.
He says he’s gonna look out for Grimes as long as he keeps his word and beats Carmelo Hayes and gives him the next shot.
Duke Hudson rolls up and says they can play “next” for the North American Championship but he’s clearly next for the NXT Championship after beating Bron Breakker last week. He and Solo go back and forth and end up agreeing on a match tonight.
We see footage of Tony D’Angelo and his goons walking on a pier to send us to break.
Back from commercial, we get Grayson Waller giving the roster a pep talk in the... kitchen... about reaching out and taking what they want, when Josh Briggs rolls up to offer him a chance to show how well he takes a country ass-beating. He walks off and Waller puffs up about how he’s totally going to kick his ass or whatever.
We get some hype for WWE’s partnership with the Special Olympics.
Footage of Tony D’Angelo’s sitdown with Santos Escobar on Legado’s yacht follows.
Escobar quips about AJ Galante and Tony says they both knew this was going to turn into a turf war. Santos says he’d love to squeeze the life out of him and see him perish, the tag teams run hot, and Elektra Lopez lays the law down, asking what’s in it for them if they have another match.
Tony says the sun shines on a dog’s ass every once in a while and Escobar used brass knuckles. Santos laughs it off and says unless he has something better to offer he can leave. D’Angelo pitches a trios match at In Your House, losers join the winners’ family.
Santos is game, Tony talks big about how he’s gonna use this boat when he wins, and they shake hands on it.
Cora Jade makes her entrance to send us to break.
Cora Jade vs. Elektra Lopez
Lopez with a waistlock takedown, back to the waistlock, standing switch, back elbow, standing switch, slide under, upkick, Jade with la casadora into a bodyscissors takeover! Roll-through, basement dropkick, cover for two! Cora with elbows, Elektra double legs her and smashes her head into the mat!
Jade throwing forearms, Lopez sidesteps a charging knee and chop blocks her! Double leg slam, off the ropes, basement dropkick, looking for an ankle lock but Cora gets the ropes and manages to sling her to the floor! Off the ropes, flying headscissors, enzuigiri, slingshot stomp for two!
Big powerbomb follows it up but Jade gets a hand on the ropes! Cora up top...
Cora Jade wins by pinfall with the diving senton.
Wes Lee is interviewed backstage.
He says he’s been waiting to fight Xyon Quinn for weeks and he knows he should probably take some time off but he needs this. As long as he has air in his lungs, he’ll keep fighting.
Sanga rolls up and says Wes should fight him like he fought him, and he’s not ten foot tall and he’s not a giant, but he has a giant heart and he wishes him the best of luck tonight. Wes is a bit skeptical but goes to make his entrance as his music hits and we go to break.
Back from commercial we get a Roxanne Perez vignette talking about what all she sacrificed to make it in pro wrestling.
Wes Lee vs. Xyon Quinn

Charging in, Lee thinks fast...
Wes Lee wins by pinfall with a schoolboy pin.
Backstage, Roderick Strong is yelling at the Creed Brothers for costing them the match.
Ivy Nile tries to explain that Pretty Deadly were trying to use the tag titles as a weapon and Julius Creed sacrificed himself. Roddy’s still mad because that would have been a DQ win for them and he tells them they better win the tag titles on Saturday and failure is not an option.
If the Creeds don’t win the tag titles, they’re out of Diamond Mine.
We see the women involved in the women’s championship summit walking backstage to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Joe Gacy cuts a promo.
He talks about how apt it is that the show on Sunday is called In Your House because Bron Breakker sat at home watching his dad wrestle and how his family taught him to settle things with his fists and lash out, and asks him to bring that fury and anger and let it consume him so he can bring the title home with him.
Bron is interviewed reacting to it and gets mad and tears a monitor off the wall.
Toxic Attraction are in the ring with Katana Chance, Kayden Carter, and Wendy Choo for the women’s championship summit.
Gigi Dolin talks about how other teams can’t stand up to them and Jacy Jayne says they’ve been running the division, but Kayden says that it’s easy to dominate when you never defend the tag titles. The Toxics call their challengers the Lollipop Guild, they take offence, and Mandy Rose tries to take control of the situation but just gets more and more upset about Wendy Choo and her pajamas.
Wendy blows a spitball, Mandy tips the table over and we get a brawl! The tag challengers flip the table back over and put Mandy on it, Choo off the top... SLEEPYTIME ELBOW DROP! The babyfaces hold the titles up to close the segment and send us to break.
Back from commercial, Ivy Nile is working out when
fake Alexandra York Kiana James rolls up to tell her that the Creeds have less than a 20% chance of winning.
Nile smashes her against the locker and asks what her chances are, and she says they’re about the same as her boys and leaves her.
Duke Hudson vs. Solo Sikoa
Sikoa hitting hard in the early goings, leaving Hudson down and out. Eventually he stems the tide, looking for a powerbomb, into the corner, Solo with big hamhock punches and a Samoan drop! Hip attack in the corner, fired up, Sikoa up top...
Solo Sikoa wins by pinfall with a diving splash.
Tiffany Stratton gets a promo package about getting herself into the women’s breakout tournament and saving the day by getting into the finals.
Grayson Waller makes his entrance and we go to break.
Back from commercial we get footage of Thea Hail graduating from high school.
She does a mock press conference about her school choise for the fall. She throws a bunch of hats away and says she’ll be attending Chase U!
Grayson Waller cuts a promo at Josh Briggs, asking him to send Brooks Jensen and Fallon Henley to the back so they can have a slobberknocker, which he obliges.
Grayson Waller vs. Josh Briggs
Briggs using his power, shoulder block, baseball slide, big right hand from the floor and he’s fired up! Waller fires back, big cravate knee, literally riding Josh like a pony, big boot but Briggs hits a gourdbuster! Roll away from the elbow drop, Grayson hits one of his own... NOPE!
Using a cravate to put Josh’s face into the buckles, up and over, leg lariat, cover for two! Robert Stone and Sofia Cromwell come to the ringside area, Briggs blasts him with a boot, corner lariat, huge pounce! Waller turns him around...

Standing surfboard, Nile slips out, enzuigiri, cover for two! Big lariat in the corner from James, drawing her up, suplex blocked, inverted facelock, Kiana counters with a snapmare and a lateral press for two! Big lariat, another one, mounted punches, front kick...
Ivy Nile wins by pinfall with a northern lights bomb.
Pretty Deadly come to ringside with mics and taunt Ivy Nile, asking what she’s going to do when Diamond Mine loses. The Creeds are here, they biel the champs into the ring and we get a brawl! The Creeds stand tall with the tag titles.
We get another vignette for Giovanni Vinci and go to break.
Cameron Grimes vs. Nathan Frazer
Grimes with a waistlock takedown, arm drag, hanging on to the wristlock, stalemate! Shot-off, drop down, leapfrog, big dropkick from Frazer sends Cameron to the floor! Off the ropes, Grimes cuts him off with an elbow, whip across, up and over, Nathan with a back elbow, shoulder block, slingshot, duck a lariat, big tijeras connects and Cameron falls to the floor!
