A war in heaven in god’s rage, he put me in this burning cage. Holy fury locks me in, imprisoned by my deadly sin, but I think I can sneak out long enough to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with the intro video.

Apollo Crews vs. Grayson Waller

Waistlock, standing switch, Crews with a wristlock, reversed, side headlock, shot off, up and over, handspring and Apollo is feeling it! Arm drag into an armbar, grinding Waller down, rolling through into a bridging pin and Grayson taunts. Off the ropes, shoulder block, drop down, leapfrog, block an arm drag and Crews takes him off his feet with a lariat!

Big back body drop from Apollo, fired up, taunting, punches, delayed vertical suplex connects! Slingshot senton atomico for two, an eye poke stops Crews in his tracks and he rolls to the floor. A medic checks on his eye and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Waller in control with a reverse chinlock, Crews to the apron, slingshot senton atomico but Grayson reverses into a sleeper hold! Raining elbows down on the back of Apollo’s neck, cover... NOPE! Crews fires up, lariats, leaping clothesline, kip-up and he’s fired up!

Military press, Waller slips to the apron and hangs his neck over the ropes, rolling thunder...

Grayson Waller wins by pinfall with the rolling thunder Ace Crusher and a rake of the eye.

We get a Meiko Satomura hype reel.

Diamond Mine are chatting backstage and Roderick Strong has security footage that exonerates him, but Julius Creed isn’t having it and says the three of them have to go prep for their six-man. Strong storms off and Damon Kemp says even he doesn’t trust Roddy anymore.

Ivy Nile and Tatum Paxley roll up to tell the boys to stop being petty and get it together.

Katana Chance and Kayden Carter make their entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Finn Balor rolls up on Bron Breakker in the locker room.

Balor says he’s held the NXT Championship for more days than anyone and made it the industry standard for the best, and now it’s Bron’s job to uphold that lineage. He reminds Bron not to underestimate Tyler Bate and wishes him luck.

Ivy Nile & Tatum Paxley vs. Katana Chance & Kayden Carter

Carter and Nile to start, Ivy with a waistlock takedown, rolling her through, another takedown, into a sunset flip for two. Kayden rolls under a lariat, Stinger splash, tag to Chance and they sandwich Nile with a double-team! Standing switch gets a legsweep, crucifix pin for two.

Katana off the top...

Katana Chance & Kayden Carter win by pinfall with a 450 splash from Chance on Tatum Paxley.

Post-match, Katana and Kayden cut a promo about how they’re gonna party in the parking lot—

Enter Doudrop & Nikki ASH.

They get in the ring and issue a challenge for the titles and shake hands.

We get a Kiana James video of her in her office showing us how she gets things done and explaining why she’s going to beat Zoey Stark.

The Schism cut a promo backstage about how Cameron Grimes may be rich in wealth but time is money and the time has come for him to decide his future.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial we get footage of Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams arriving at the arena earlier today.

The Schism are in the ring.

Joe Gacy cuts a promo about how he took the Dyad under his wing and they will be rewarded for their victories, and grabs a pair of smiley face pins to give them in recognition of the strides they’ve made to climb higher into the Schism’s tree. Jagger Reid thanks him for making them whole and Rip Fowler says they’ve been empowered to see their inner strength.

Gacy says he’s reserved a seat for Cameron Grimes to join them.

Cameron Grimes makes his entrance.

He says he didn’t come down for the celebration but he did come down to talk to them. Joe’s been asking him to join and he thinks he has an answer for them. The more he thinks about it, the more it truly just makes sense... he doesn’t need them.

Cameron Grimes doesn’t need anybody to go to the moon! Gacy says he says these things but there’s misery just beneath his surface, and Grimes admits the worst part is that he’s right. But he got himself into all his losing situations and he can do it again, so before things get worse, he’s out of here.

He goes to leave and Gacy brings up his dad, and Cameron’s had enough! He clears the Dyad out of the ring, Joe hugs him, the Dyad come back in but Gacy backs them off and a rattled Grimes bails!

We get a video package for Roxanne Perez where she talks about faltering at the end of her match against Cora Jade and learning her lesson. Next time there’ll be no hesitation.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Fit Finlay walks up to Tyler Bate and gives him a tablet.

Pete Dunne is video calling him on it to remind him that he knows better than anybody what that title represents and to unify them.

Briggs and Jensen (Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs) & Fallon Henley vs. Lash Legend & Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) (Mixed Tag Team Match)

Women to start, Legend walloping her out the gates and then scooping her up and slapping her head into the ropes repeatedly! Whip across, back body drop, to the floor, Henley with a crossbody but Lash runs away and tags out to Wilson! Fallon slaps him before backing off to let Briggs in!

Whip reversed, dropdown, Manhattan Drop into a pounce and Josh is fired up! Prince in, dives into a Manhattan Drop, off the ropes, back body drop and Jensen is legal! Sending Pretty Deadly to the floor, Henley with an enzuigiri to Legend! Off the ropes, Briggs tosses her into all the heels on the floor and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Briggs is in a bad way as Pretty Deadly work him over. Heat segment rolls on, eventually Josh tags Jensen in! Right hands on Prince, Atomic Drop, Stinger splash, out of the corner with a bulldog and a Fameasser! Off the ropes, stopping to blast Wilson, both men go for crossbodies at the same time and end up down and out!

Pretty Deadly to the floor, Brooks crawling, Gallus come down to run interference and Josh Briggs tries to jump them! Henley beating Legend down, Elton with an O’Connor roll after a boot from Joe Coffey...

Lash Legend & Pretty Deadly win by pinfall with an O’Connor roll from Elton Prince on Brooks Jensen.

Mandy Rose is on the phone in the locker room when Shayna Baszler rolls up.

Baszler says she’ll be surprised if Mandy’s title reign makes it past Worlds Collide and says Liv Morgan’s only choice is which limb gets torn from which. She tells Mandy she better unify the titles for the brand and for herself, or everything she’s said for the past year is garbage.

A Connor’s Cure hype reel follows.

Chase U make their entrance and we see Charlie Dempsey working out with the Persian Clubs to send us to break.

Back from commercial, JD McDonagh is interviewed backstage.

He knows his meticulous self-care routine might come off as creepy but it’s designed from the ground up to maintain his focus and he’d rather be a little creepy than emotionally fragile like Wes Lee.

Andre Chase vs. Charlie Dempsey

Dempsey with a headlock takeover, shifting to a headscissors keylock, Chase reverses to a headscissors of his own! Charlie reverses to a deathlock, Andre with a cover for two! Test of strength, monkey flip, Chase with one of his own, double pins into the double bridge!

Rolling through, keeping their hands clasped, Dempsey with a leg pick, off the ropes, drop down, arm drag from Andre! Chase says that’s a teachable moment, grabs a hammerlock, reversed, reversed back, to the mat, back and forth, Andre ducks an uppercut, right hand jabs, axehandle, Manhattan Drop, whip reversed, side Russian legsweep!

Stomps, Side Effect reversed into a Fujiwara armbar! Chase blocks, Dempsey grabs a heel hook, shifting to an STF! Charlie kicks Bodhi Heyward at ringside and drops him with a Karelin lift on the floor! Back in...

Andre Chase wins by pinfall with a victory roll pin.

Meiko Satomura runs into Alba Fyre backstage and they have a moment.

Zoey Stark makes her entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Tyler Bate runs into GUNTHER.

GUNTHER says he’s here to remind him of the legacy of the NXT UK Championship, of which his is the longest reign, and he tells Tyler that he must beat Bron Breakker.

Kiana James vs. Zoey Stark

Back and forth in the feeling out, Stark to the apron, trips James up, corkscrew senton atomico for two! Kiana with boots in the corner, choking Zoey, dragging her into the middle of the ring for a few nearfalls. James with a top wristlock, trading shots, whip to the corner, Stark with a schoolboy for two!

Kiana back to the top wristlock, Zoey gets away, off the ropes, sliding kick... NOPE! Following it up...

Zoey Stark wins by pinfall with the flipping facebreaker.

Post-match, Nikkita Lyons attacks James but she manages to get away and dodge a big kick!

Blair Davenport is interviewed backstage.

She says NXT UK and NXT were both built off their women’s divisions, but none of those women ever did what she’s going to do on Sunday, which is unify the two titles.

Rhea Ripley rolls up.

She says she built both brands and made them hers, and on Sunday, Blair has the opportunity to make history. She looks confident, don’t screw it up.

Gallus make their entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, Nathan Frazer is backstage with Axiom chatting and reading comics.

Frazer talks about how he feels torn having been part of both brands, and Axiom says perhaps they could have a bit of friendly competition on Sunday. Nathan talks about doing a British rounds match, Axiom proposes best of three, and they trade comics.

Diamond Mine (Brutus Creed, Damon Kemp, & Julius Creed) vs. Gallus (Joe Coffey, Mark Coffey, & Wolfgang)

Julius and Joe to start, waistlock takedown from Creed, Coffey rushes and gets the ropes! Uppercuts and body blows, tag to Brutus, armbar, body blows from the Iron Man, whip hard into the turnbuckle, step up, uppercut, tag to Mark! Double-teams, Karelin lift from Creed and a tag to Kemp!

Waistlock applied, Coffey with an uppercut, fallaway slam puts him into his corner and he tags Wolfgang in! Brutus in, going a-clubbering with Wolfgang, double leg into hammerfists, Gallus rush in, Diamond Mine meet them and smash them all in to send us to break!

Back from commercial, Joe is working on Brutus, back body drop, tag to Julius! Off the ropes, chop block, overhook suplex, straight suplex reversed, inside cradle for two! Creed deadlifts him out of it and slams him! Ankle lock applied, Wolfgang and Mark pull Coffey out of the ring!

Julius gives chase, jumping back on the apron but Mark pulls it out from under him and tags in! Trading right hands, half nelson slam from Coffey... ONLY TWO! Dropping a knee, seated senton, tag to Joe! Coffey with a Japanese stranglehold, tag to Wolfgang, freight train body block into a front chancery on the mat!

Keeping Creed away from the tag but he rolls under, Mark legal, tag to Damon! Right hands, body blows, lighting Coffey up,! Off the ropes, elbow, belly-to-belly suplex, send Joe packing, whip hard into the corner, drop Mark with a lariat! Scoop lift, Kemp stops short because Roderick Strong is in the aisle with his phone.

Damon confronts him and stomps on his phone and security gets involved! Big spinebuster on Mark, clear Wolfgang out but Joe is ready for him...

Gallus win by pinfall with a discus lariat from Joe Coffey on Damon Kemp.

Post-match, Pretty Deadly and Briggs and Jensen come down and we have a big ol’ tag team brawl as referees and security swarm to try and break it up! The locker room empties, it’s a real pier six!

Bron Breakker is backstage when Tommaso Ciampa rolls up and sets a chair next to him for a chat. He says nothing is more important to him than the time he spent with Goldie, and he asks to hold her. He says there’s a certain responsibility to holding her, a certain passion she embodies.

NXT means the world to him, but it’s Bron’s world now, and at Worlds Collide, he can make history. The anxiety he’s feeling right now is normal, and on Sunday when the bell rings, embrace it and represent this brand and add to our legacy, and more important than anything... win.

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams are walking backstage and they say Carmelo isn’t on the show Sunday and they’re gonna talk about it.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get another Quincy Elliott promo and he talks about how people didn’t understand him as a kid and they didn’t know him at all, but the WWE Universe is about to find out exactly who he is and that he’s coming to change the game.

Commentary hypes up the Worlds Collide card.

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams come down and get on the mic.

Usually they’re here laughing and telling jokes, but not tonight, and Hayes says he’s trying to figure out how they’re gonna keep the best champion off of Worlds Collide. All this talk of unifying titles, he did that eight months ago! He’s the greatest North American Champion of all time, they tried to tell him this is a secondary title but he’s never secondary to anyone.

He’s taking the ball into his court, and he will not be taking his talents to Worlds Collide and there’s nobody on his level or the level below anyway, and that’s all it is and all it’s gonna be.

The lights go out.


He’s got a microphone and Hayes mocks him, saying he doesn’t know if he knows how to use it. Ricochet soaks in the “welcome back” chants for a moment before saying for the sake of everyone here and watching at home, please shut the hell up for five seconds.

Anyway, he says he doesn’t see why Worlds Collide should just be NXT and NXT UK, and he wants to put some SmackDown on the show. Carmelo is great but he can’t do it like he can, they bicker about who’s better, Hayes says he’ll step on him and there ain’t enough ring for the both of them.

Ricochet congratulates him on his success but says nobody remembers any of Carmelo’s title defenses, so he figured he’d come down and give him a memorable one and win the title in the process! He runs Trick off and hits Recoil on Carmelo before picking the title up and holding it high!

That’s the show, folks.
