Focused his mind on something he cared about but it came out a shout just like before. The bogus man is at your heels, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with a recap of Vengeance Day.

We get footage of Bayley rolling up on the Performance Center earlier, arm in a sling.

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams make their entrance and get on the mic.

Trick has a big intro for them and says Hayes turned Apollo Crews into Stevie Wonder and Carmelo has a new catchphrase for us: Melo in Two. He said he was gonna get two straight and he did. Apollo had the right vision but the wrong one, and the whole NXT Universe is shook now.

He is everything he says he is, the One, Him, and history doesn’t lie— he’s done everything he said he was gonna do but one more man has to get put on the t-shirt and one event that can hold the both of them, and that man is—

Enter JD McDonagh.

He tells Carmelo that he’s the coolest member of the roster, but in the ring where it matters, he’s not fit to hold his jockstrap. He loves calling himself the A Champ, but he’s not ready for the big title or to be the face of the brand. Hayes says he thought he beat everybody but he left a survivor, and he’s ready.

JD says Hayes is all about private rooms at the club, but he sends men to the emergency room, and he better call 911. Carmelo challenges him to a match tonight and McDonagh steps up to him before backing off.

Kiana James rolls up on Fallon Henley backstage.

Henley is upset James cheated and wants to give Katana Chance and Kayden Carter a rematch, and also insists that Kiana tell Brooks Jensen who she was on the phone with. James demures and they walk through a door into a surprise party thrown by Josh Briggs!

Sol Ruca makes her entrance to send us to break.

Back from commercial, we get footage of the post-Vengeance Day media call where Grayson Waller accosted “Heartbreak Man” Shawn Michaels until Matt Bloom took him away.

Sol Ruca vs. Zoey Stark

Zoey Stark wins by pinfall with the flipping back suplex facebreaker.

A recap of Dabba Kato’s return follows and we see him walking backstage to send us to break.

Back from commercial, we go back to the party for the new women’s tag champs.

We see footage of Diamond Mine in the trainer’s room as Ivy Nile gets evaluated.

Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre roll up and Isla tries to convince Tatum Paxley that she’s being held down and she needs to admit the fire inside of her and also thinks she attacked Nikkita Lyons. Tatum gives a big long explanation and Dawn says an innocent person would have just said no, and leaves her sputtering.

Isla Dawn makes her entrance and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Roxanne Perez is interviewed.

She’s proud of defending the title and former tag champs Katana Chance and Kayden Carter roll up all upset that they lost their titles and nobody seems to care. They tell her she has no friends and mock her for Cora Jade abandoning her, and challenge her to a match, if she can find a partner.

We see the Toxics arriving and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we go back to the party for our new women’s tag team champions.

Fallon Henley has something to say to Brooks Jensen and they go back and forth about who should say their thing first.

We see Bayley walking backstage and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get a hype reel for Vengeance Day making Triple H proud.

Commentary hypes next week’s show up.

Bayley makes her entrance and welcomes us to Ding Dong, Hello!

She made it here because she’s the Ultra Role Model and she loves NXT and she loves the girls she’s bringing out here today, two of her absolute favorites, Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne.

They make their entrance and take seats and Bayley says she feels some tension and asks what happened. They bicker and Jacy claims Gigi screwed her out of the title, but Dolin says Roxanne beat her so if anything Jayne cheated her out of the title. Jacy complains of Gigi abandoning her but Dolin says it was sink or swim.’

Jayne claims she doesn’t need Gigi because she’s a star all on her own, and Dolin’s gear made her look like a hobo who banged a Chucky doll. Gigi is surprised she saw her gear looking up at the lights from what she calls the Jacy position.

Bayley asks if they’ve thought about what they’d do as singles stars, and they both say they’re going to the top, which Bayley rightfully calls out as vague. She suggests it’d be quicker and easier with someone who knows you in and out by your side. Dolin admits Toxic Attraction has been her life for almost three years and everyone in the locker room hates her.

Jacy recounts all the terrible things she’s called the roster and says Bayley knows there’s strength in numbers and Damage CTRL is on top of the world right now. Gigi says this place is a shark tank and she needs someone who will have her back. Jayne admits that when she gets pissed she aims for the jugular.

She could say she’ll change but why lie? And in all honesty, no matter what happens Gigi will be her sister. Dolin agrees and Jacy says they can either go separate ways and see what happens, or they could have one more run. Gigi asks if she means at the NXT tag titles before suggesting they run for the main roster tag titles!

Bayley takes no offense but says she’s focusing on the now and they seem like they feel a lot better so let’s bring it back and hug it out. Gigi and Jacy hug it out and stand tall... BUT JAYNE ATTACKS DOLIN ANYWAY! SHE THROWS HER INTO THE DING DONG DOOR AND KICKS HER THROUGH IT!

Jacy crouches over her while Gigi sobs in pain.

That’s the show, folks.
