WWE NXT RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR JULY 19
How sweet the sound, the swell of strings begins to rise. The stage is set, the painted stars, they fill our eyes. This heart of mine goes out of time, and I’m here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.
The show opens with a recap of Cora Jade turning on Roxanne Perez last week.
Cameron Grimes vs. JD McDonagh
Grimes strong out the gates, taking McDonagh out with a kick to the face after some back and forth! Pressing the attack, JD catches a kick, trying to work the knee but Cameron stays one step ahead of him and blasts him to the floor with a boot! To the floor, back inside, big crossbody connects and we see Joe Gacy watching the match from the stands as we go to break.
Back from commercial, McDonagh is in control and working the knee over. Posting it, kicking the hamstring, dropping elbows, Grimes manages to get a second wind going with elbows and a tilt-a-whirl Bossman Slam! Enzuigiri connects, JD hangs onto his ankle and lands a sharp headbutt, but Cameron lays him out with a knee to the jaw on the way down and both men are out on their backs!
Elbow from Grimes on the apron, another headbutt, he gets tangled up in the ropes and McDonagh lays kick after kick into his injured knee! JD follows it up...
JD McDonagh wins by pinfall with a short-arm back suplex.
Nikkita Lyons cuts a promo backstage about how she’s gonna win the battle royal and then Mandy Rose won’t be able to dodge her.
Cora Jade is shown walking backstage and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Tiffany Stratton cuts a promo about how rude it is to make her actually compete for a title match.
Cora Jade makes her entrance and gets on the mic.
She says she’s been the face of the women’s division since she came here and she thought she’d be nice and get her friend a job and she should have pulled the rug out on her ages ago. She was gonna make the tag titles important but Roxanne Perez ruined it by gunning for the women’s title and she’s a selfish bitch.
Roxanne was off in her own world so bad that she didn’t even see that Cora attacked her, and of course she had to come through to ruin her moment. That’s why it felt so good to hit her in the back, and the look on her face was priceless. Perez isn’t here tonight because she’s not cleared to compete due to broken heart, and nobody’s gonna stand in Jade’s way during this battle royal.
And as for the tag titles, all it means to her now is a lie, and the end of the old Cora Jade and the beginning of the Generation of Jade. She throws the title in the garbage and leaves.
Xyon Quinn is interviewed backstage.
He says this is gonna be the biggest victory of his career, and he doesn’t rate Apollo Crews but this is gonna be a big deal anyway. Crews couldn’t cut it in the big leagues, and next week the X-Factor will be in full display.
Roderick Strong makes his entrance to send us to break.
Back from commercial, Indi Hartwell cuts a promo.
She says she’s had some ups and downs lately, but tonight is every woman for herself, and she’s going to win tonight’s battle royal.
Damon Kemp vs. Roderick Strong
Strong with a side headlock, knees, half nelson gutbuster, looking for End of Heartache but Kemp blocks the lift and Roddy settles for a straight suplex for two. Damon gets a boot up, a couple vicious lariats take Strong off his feet! Belly-to-belly suplex, Tony D’Angelo appears on the tron.
He says Roddy’s diamonds aren’t shining so bright and Tony D is the only thing that’s forever. We see the Family beating the Creeds down, Strong takes advantage of Kemp’s concern...
Roderick Strong wins by pinfall with a knee strike.
Post-match, Strong runs off to the back to help his crew and Kemp stumbles after him.
Pretty Deadly are backstage talking each other up and they’re excited to go take the NXT UK Tag Team Championship back from Briggs & Jensen.
Briggs & Jensen are backstage talking about how they’re gonna retain the tag titles and Fallon Henley’s gonna become #1 contender later and we go to break.
Back from commercial, the Creeds are helping each other up when Roderick Strong rolls up to berate them for not handling Tony D’Angelo’s family.
Damon Kemp rolls up and Roddy berates him for taking too long to show up, and yells about it some more as he storms off.
Briggs and Jensen (Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs) (c) vs. Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) (NXT UK Tag Team Championship)
Jensen and Prince to start, Elton hauling off with a big slap, he gets thrown in the turnbuckles and Brooks lights him up with chops! Whip into the turnbuckles, big back body drop, the match breaks down with all four guys in the ring and the champs take control!
Sliding to the floor, stereo forearms, back inside, Elton with a sleeper hold but Briggs counters by ramming him into the turnbuckles! Catch a dive, body slam, Prince is dumped to the floor into Fallon Henley, knocking her down and sending us to break.
Back from commercial, Jensen lights Wilson up and takes him out with a spinning wheel kick! Tag to Prince, hitting Brooks with big knees, but eventually he tags out to Briggs and Josh lights ‘em up with boots and a side slam and a big splash! Josh gets two off a backslide, both men go for lariats and end up down and out!
Pretty Deadly trying to do-si-do the tag title belts into play, Fallon Henley runs interference to get them away...
Briggs and Jensen win by pinfall with Total Elimination on Kit Wilson to retain the NXT UK Tag Team Championship.
Joe Gacy and the Schism get a promo package where the Dyad are revealed as the former Grizzled Young Veterans and baptized, reborn as Jagger Reed (James Drake) and Rip Fowler (Zack Gibson) with goofy contact lenses.
Bron Breakker is walking around looking for JD McDonagh and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Wes Lee is interviewed backstage.
He says he keeps running into roadblocks but now his vision is back to 20/20. Grayson Waller blames him for not being the NXT North American Champion and next week he can only blame himself for the hell he’s about to take.
Bron Breakker gets in the ring and on the mic.
He calls out JD McDonagh for attacking him from behind and putting him through a table and he gets it, not the first time and not the last, but he knows who JD is, the Irish Ace, the kingpin of NXT UK, a surgeon every time he gets in the ring, and if he wanted his attention, he’s got it, and he’ll pay for what he did to Bron.
McDonagh appears on the tron and mockingly asks him how his shoulder is doing. Breakker says he should come to the ring and find out for himself. JD says he’s been studying him, and the difference between him and past challengers is he’s not competing, he’s going to dissect him.
He talks about the muscles in the shoulder and marks up a mannequin to show how he’s going to carve the shoulder up, and Bron can try to fight through the pain but there’s only so much trauma a brain can take before it shuts off. Is he willing to risk his health for the title?
Bron tells him if he can’t find his balls he can take some from the mannequin. JD says his future changed forever at Great American Bash, and a necessary evil has arrived in NXT.
Footage of Solo Sikoa getting assaulted by Von Wagner on Friday plays.
We get hype for Axiom’s debut and go to break.
Back from commercial, Diamond Mine are interviewed backstage.
The Creeds tell Tony D he can get it anywhere and any time, and it’s on sight now. They can either accept his challenge and get their asses beaten or he can turn it down and they’ll hunt him down to beat his ass.
Axiom vs. Dante Chen
Collar and elbow, Chen trying to grind him down, Axiom cracks a kick off, hammerlock, Dante slings him to the floor but he comes back in with a slingshot schoolboy for two! Off the ropes, elbow to the kidneys, tilt-a-whirl backbreaker, cover for two! Laying strikes in, Pele kick, waistlock, blocked, slingshot neck snap over the ropes!
Axiom with a diving crossbody, following it up...
Axiom wins by pinfall with a dropkick.
Lash Legend cuts a promo about winning the battle royal tonight and we go to break.
Back from commercial we get footage from earlier today of Giovanni Vinci refusing to take a selfie with some poor woman.
The Chase U bus rolls up and empties with chanting and cheering and Vinci yells at Thea Hail for getting fingerprints on his car windows.
Carmelo Hayes is at the barber shop talking about various potential contenders for his NXT North American Championship and generally running them all down.
Toxic Attraction is interviewed backstage.
Mandy says she thinks Tatum Paxley is going to win the battle royal and refuses to elaborate. And it doesn’t matter anywa because whoever wins is just the next loser.
Ivy Nile rolls up and says she’s gonna win, as does Kiana James and then Alba Fyre.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, Cameron Grimes is interviewed.
He flips out over the downward spiral his career is on and yells at the interviewer for not respecting him when he says “not now.”
Joe Gacy rolls up to tell him he knows exactly what he’s going through, but Grimes tells him not now and slides through the door.
Tony D’Angelo is interviewed.
He says Elektra Lopez is gonna win the battle royal and there’s no way Diamond Mine are gonna beat him so they can bring their towels and singlets and screaming if they want.
NXT Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Battle Royal
Zoey Stark is back and in the match!
Cora Jade tries to walk, Ivy Nile throws her back in the ring and Cora runs away anyway! Usual battle royal chaos from there, Indi Hartwell eliminates Santino’s daughter, Alba Fyre gets thrown around by Lash Legend and they both end up eliminated! Stark eliminates Yulisa Leon and gets into it with Valentina Feroz after.
Jockeying for position on the apron, Leon saves Feroz at first but a well-placed superkick knocks them to the floor together! Kiana James eliminates Fallon Henley, Tiffany Stratton knocks Wendy Choo out of the match and we go to break!
Back from commercial, the crowd is thinning while Toxic Attraction watch from their skybox. Katana Chance and Kayden Carter take Nile out, who takes them both out of the match in return! Tatum Paxley puts Nikkita Lyons on the apron but chooses to eliminate herself with a slingshot crossbody to save Ivy from a beatdown?
Hartwell running hot but Tiffany Stratton eliminates her and we’re in the final four, her, James, Stark, and Lyons. Nikkita puts Stratton on the apron and blasts Jiana with a wicked thrust kick! Big German suplex for Zoey, she dumps James, Tiffany dumps her and it’s just her and Stark now!
Zoey dumps her to the apron, she hangs in there, back inside, clothesline and Stratton barely stops her left foot from hitting the mat to stay in the game! Slingshot to the apron, both women hanging in there, Zoey gets her but Cora Jade is still in the match!
Back body drop...
Zoey Stark wins, last eliminating Cora Jade to become #1 contender to the NXT Women’s Championship.
Stark stares the Toxics down.
