WWE NXT RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR JUNE 7
West Virginia has its Moth Man, panhandlers got their Skunk Ape, but I have a taser and night vision goggles, Costco rolls of black duct tape, and I’m here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with a recap of In Your House from Saturday.
Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams make their entrance.
Trick talks up Carmelo’s victory and asks everyone to make some noise for their two-time North American Champion. Hayes wants to give credit where credit is due, the best version of Cameron Grimes showed up and gave him one of his toughest fights, but now he’s back where he belongs and he is the goal.
Melo don’t chase dreams, dreams chase Melo, and he’s what we all aspire to be. He says we could never be him and he’s standing on top while we’re reaching for our goals.
Enter Solo Sikoa.
He congratulates Hayes on his victory and says nobody whats to hear that, and this is NXT 2.0 where there’s less talking and more fighting. He wants it short and sweet, everybody knows he has next, but Trick says that was between him and the last guy and no one cares.
Hayes says Solo bet on the wrong guy, but Sikoa says he has his number and everybody knows it.
Enter Grayson Waller.
He cuts everybody in the ring down and says none of them have mates and no one likes Solo, that’s why that’s his name. Sikoa says if you wanna get down he’ll get down and he goes for the three-on-one brawl and, sadly, gets stomped by That Damn Numbers Game.
We get a hype reel for Von Wagner and go to break.
Back from commercial we get footage of Tony D’Angelo and his boys pushing Legado del Fantasma around and getting Santos Escobar riled up.
Josh Briggs vs. Von Wagner
Trading punches right off, Briggs gets him in the corner and hammers him but Wagner turns him around and lights him up some more! Big Olympic Slam from Von gets a two count, mounted punches follow, big boot sends the action to the floor! Fallon Henley runs interference, Brooks Jensen passes Josh his cast, he blasts Wagner with it and then...
Josh Briggs wins by pinfall with a lariat.
Post-match, Robert Stone is mad about it.
Solo Sikoa is interviewed from the trainer’s room. He says he wants both Waller and Hayes tonight, and if somebody wants to team with him they can be his guest, but he’s gonna leave both of those bitches the same way they left him.
Nathan Frazer makes his entrance and we go to break.
Back from commercial we get Thea Hail getting her certificate of enrollment with Chase U.
Pretty Deadly roll up to make fun of her for asking for a photo with her teacher, Bodhi Heyward and Andre Chase issue a challenge.
The whole combined D’Angelo Family and Legado unit accompany Santos Escobar to the ring for his match.
Nathan Frazer vs. Santos Escobar
Mat grappling early, Escobar riding Frazer, Nathan gets away and wipes him out! Santos to the floor, he blocks a dive and then dives on Frazer right in front of commentary! He jaws at Tony and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Escobar in control, working Frazer’s legs, into a Romero Special and falling back into full extension! Shifting gears, high-angle Boston Crab applied but Nathan gets the ropes! Slingshot up and out, schoolboy pin for two, O’Connor roll blocked, off the ropes, both men go for crossbodies and end up down and out!
Frazer up first, inverted headlock elbow drop gets two, nobody home on the dive, Santos nails him with a knee, fireman’s carry, he slips out, Nathan eats a solebutt and falls to the floor. D’Angelo’s boys try to pass Santos a crowbar but he’s not having it, Frazer hits a kick...
Nathan Frazer wins by pinfall with a Phoenix Splash.
Xyon Quinn is interviewed backstage.
He says guys like Frazer and Wes Lee are all the same, and he’s had to see Lee’s name all over social media. That match went for five minutes and he dominated him until he pulled a rabbit out of his hat. You call that a victory? He calls it luck, and he’s demanding a rematch next week.
And when he’s done with Wes Lee, he’ll be unconscious.
We see Bron Breakker walking backstage to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Bron Breakker makes his entrance and gets on the mic.
He says Joe Gacy made it personal but no matter what he wasn’t gonna take his championship away from him. He could see the look on everyone’s faces and he knows they want a shot at the title, so who’s gonna step up?
Apollo Crews is here!
He gets on the mic and confronts Bron in the ring, using his normal accent and saying that he’s here for as long as it takes to win the title. He puts Breakker over as one of the best in all of WWE and this place is special and he loves NXT. When he left the first time he left way too soon and there were lots of things he still wanted to accomplish.
He says he’ll see Bron down the road and offers a handshake.
We get a video package hyping up the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament Finals.
Tiffany Stratton and Roxanne Perez are shown backstage to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Joe Gacy cuts a promo in the dark with his druids.
He talks about how they were unfulfilled and cleared their minds and opened their hearts, and they’ve made great strides together. People don’t understand that they’re shaping the world, and he dubs them The Dyad, and promises we’ll get to see their first match next week.
Roxanne Perez vs. Tiffany Stratton (NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament Finals)
Stratton moonsaults away from a hold, Perez with a tilt-a-whirl headscissors, drop toehold into a hammerlock, reversed into a kneeling armbar, wrenching her fingers back! Tiffany gets her up top and arm wringers her hard into the ropes to send us to break.

Roxanne Perez wins by pinfall with Pop Rox, winning the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament and earning a contract for a title shot of her choosing.
Post-match, Cora Jade presents her the contract.
Enter Toxic Attraction.
Mandy Rose mock-congratulates Roxanne on her win and says she should be proud of herself, out here with her best friend standing beside her, but if she thinks she’s gonna cash that contract in on her, no honey, you’ve got a better chance going to Raw or SmackDown. If she challenges her, she will fail.
Perez clocks her with a forearm and a brawl breaks out! Indi Hartwell joins the fight to eliminate the numbers advantage and the babyface women stand tall!
Backstage, referees are checking on Bodhi Heyward when the rest of Chase U come to his aid.
He says Pretty Deadly attacked him and Chase says he’s gonna go whip their asses, and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Wendy Choo is being interviewed when Tiffany Stratton interrupts.
She complains about the tournament finals being unfair and demands a rematch, refusing to let Choo have a word in edgewise, so eventually Wendy throws her drink in her face and leaves her to sputter and moan.
Andre Chase vs. Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) (Handicap Match)
Chase running hot, game to fight the fight two-on-one but eventually Prince gets a right hand in. Whip to the corner, Andre explodes with a lariat but Wilson trips him up and Pretty Deadly go to town on him, quick tags and beatdowns. Bodhi Heyward crawls to the ring with Thea Hail trying to talk him out of it but Bodhi says Chase needs them and Thea pops up on the apron to heed his call and look for the tag!
Elton jaws at her, she slaps sense into him, Manhattan Drop, whip into a Russian legsweep and Chase puts boots to him! Blind tag from Prince, boot to Andre’s face...
Pretty Deadly win by pinfall with Spilt Milk.
Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams run into Tony D’Angelo backstage.
He says if they want this title reign to last longer than the first one, they should fall in line under the Don. Trick says Carmelo’s the sun of NXT and everything revolves around him, and Hayes adds that he’s gabagood on whatever they may think they can offer.
Tony threatens him and Carmelo demands respect after he walks off.
Alba Fyre makes her entrance to send us to break.

Alba Fyre wins by pinfall with the senton atomico.
Post-match, Lash Legend attacks Fyre in the aisle and lays her out.
Backstage, Roderick Strong rolls up on the rest of Diamond Mine.
He says he knows he’s been hard on them and said some tough things, but they’re all alphas and they rose to the occasion, and they celebrate together briefly.
Edris Enofe and Malik Blade roll up.
They want to know what it takes to get a tag title shot, and the Creeds say they’ve heard them talking the talk and they appreciate it and if they want a title shot next week, they’d be honored.
Strong waves them off and says this isn’t Christmas, you gotta make them earn it. He’s been a champion many many times and he was gonna give them one mistake, and they just made it.
Back from commercial, we get another Giovanni Vinci vignette where it’s finally properly revealed that he’s a repackaged Fabian Aichner.
