It happened rather suddenly that the preacher came to town with stories from the testaments of men of great reknown. With his box of patent medicines he swore to cure all ills, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with a video package narrated by Tiffany Stratton breaking tonight’s show down.

Donovan Dijak vs. Tony D’Angelo (Jailhouse Street Fight)

Action to the floor almost immediately, Dijak has a nightstick but D’Angelo takes it from him and beats him with it! Fighting over to the jail cell, which apparently the only way to win the match is to lock your opponent inside, so that stinks, Donovan fights away and grabs a chair but Tony turns him around and throws him inside!

Dijak hits a chokeslam into a chair inside the ring and goes to the floor for more plunder! Throwing chairs in the ring, he goes in to capitalize but D’Angelo reverses and slams him off the top into the chairs to send us to break!

Back from commercial, Dijak chops D’Angelo and he ends up on a table on the floor... DONOVAN DIJAK ELBOW OFF THE APRON AND THROUGH THE TABLE! He throws Tony into the cell and tries to shut the door, D’Angelo struggling, bending the dislocated finger back and then catching him with a Moment of Silence!

Dijak keeps himself from getting locked in by grabbing Stacks and holding him hostage, and when he gets out Tony wails on him with a steel chair! Donovan turns things around on him and drags him in the cell, but Stacks sacrifices himself to keep the door open and get the crowbar to the Don!

Backbreaker rack, Feast Your Eyes takes Stacks out and D’Angelo blasts Dijak with the crowbar! Over and over, backing him into the cell, he slams the door in Tall Don’s face...

Tony D’Angelo wins by locking Donovan Dijak in the cell.

Backstage, Roxanne Perez is interviewed.

She’s feeling pretty anxious and Meiko Satomura beat her the last time they met, but she’s gonna make it different this time. She’s done everything she can do to prepare, and she knows this isn’t her first title defense, but it’s the biggest, and she needs to walk into Stand & Deliver as champion.

She’s ready and she’s going to leave everything in the ring to keep her title.

We see Gallus and Pretty Deadly walking backstage in separate shots and go to break.

Back from commercial, Josh Briggs arrives at Kiana James’ office to chat with her, as he promised Brooks Jensen he would.

She says Brooks’ happiness is her’s, and she’s dedicated to her team with Fallon Henley, and Briggs tries to impress on her how listless he is with the state of the relationship. James says she’s been swamped in business and Josh tells her Brooks is terrified of making the wrong move and she’s gonna have to take the lead.

She says she’s gonna give Jensen a call later and book a makeup date.

Gallus are in the ring, microphones in hand.

They call Pretty Deadly out to come get the receipts they have waiting for them.

They appear in the crowd on a platform behind them and Wolfgang yells at them. Pretty Deadly say they want the NXT Tag Team Championship back, and Mark Coffey tells them to come take them. Pretty Deadly make like they’re gonna give them a jolly good thrashing tonight, but Gallus tell them they’re not doing anything tonight.

Pretty Deadly up on the apron, Wolfgang slingshots them in and the former champs are on the bad side of a beatdown.

Lyra Valkyrie cuts a promo about how she came to NXT to seek a battle and now her eye is on the NXT Women’s Championship.

Bron off the ropes, duck a lariat, big lariat of his own! Tags made, Julius slams Brutus into Sanga but the big man quickly turns things around and tags Mahal in. Clubbing blows, looking for a suplex, Creed reverses and hits a vertical suplex of his own!

We cut to “Heartbreak Man” Shawn Michaels backstage with Matt Bloom.

Bloom is worried about Michaels meeting with Grayson Waller but the Heartbreak Man says he knows what he’s getting into and we go to break.

Back from commercial we get a recap of Toxic Attraction breakup fallout.

We see Meiko Satomura warming up backstage.

Grayson Waller is in the ring and on the mic.

He welcomes us to the Grayson Waller Effect and introduces his guest tonight, “Heartbreak Man” Shawn Michaels, who still thinks he’s cute and knows he’s sexy, whereas I think I’m sexy and *know* I’m cute, thank you.

Waller admits that ten-year-old Grayson would be freaking out right now, but today he’d tell himself that he’d be disappointed, because Shawn isn’t who you think he is, and he’d tell young him to be a Bret Hart guy instead.

Michaels stumbles over his words and says they used to be cool and Waller would come ask questions but now he hates him, and why is that? Grayson says ever since he won the Iron Survivor he said he was gonna take the brand over, he’s the best on the mic, in the ring, and on social media, and he doesn’t care who he pisses off because he wants to be the number one guy.

And for some reason, Shawn is treating him the same way Vince McMahon treated him. Holding him back for not being big enough and not being a draw, but he proved him wrong, and congratulations. But now he’s Vince, and why? Is he jealous? Does Grayson not kiss enough ass or give him the clout of taking a photo after each big match?

He accuses HBM of holding him back and Shawn tells him he’s not the guy because he lost at Vengeance Day. New Year’s Evil wasn’t his fault, but that’s why they made the cage match, and they got a decisive winner. Grayson took his shot and he missed and now he’s mad and he wants to blame somebody, but the guy he needs to look at is the guy in the mirror.

Waller tells him the only reason he’s got his job is because his best mate Hunter had a heart attack, and that’s the truth. Shawn admits that he stepped in because his friend needed him, and it was the least he could do after everything Triple H did for him, and Hunter was in charge, but he’s the one directing this ship now.

Grayson says he’s steering the ship right into an iceberg because he’s the biggest star on the brand and now he’s not on Stand & Deliver? He wouldn’t be surprised if he gets cut after Mania, and Shawn tells him his problem is that he feels like he’s bigger than the brand but NXT was built as a collective built on the shoulders of guys like Finn Balor, Kevin Owens, Sami Zayn, Undisputed Era, Rhea Ripley, Bianca Belair.

He lists off a bunch of current stars, including Waller, but he tells him he’s just a part of it. Waller tells him he’s pulling at his heartstrings and nobody does a better job hyping a crowd than Shawn Michaels, but he sees through it. It was always “I’m the Icon, Mr. WrestleMania, the main event,” since when is he talking about we?

Michaels admits his active career was all about him but the second he walked in he knew it was different and NXT was special. Grayson asks what makes it special and says he’s sick of NXT and the people backstage saying they want to be a superstar and doing nothing about it.

The crowd is the same people every week in the same clothes, and he’s most sick of having a boss who has the biggest box-office superstar ever standing right in front of him—

Shawn yells at him and says he wants to run him down he can knock his socks off, jump on the bandwagon, but do not ever run this brand down. Waller challenges him to take the stupid cowboy hat off and tune up the band one last time, and HBM takes his jacket off!

He says for over a decade he’s had the greatest in the world challenge him to their WrestleMania dream match, and Waller thinks he’s so special? They’ve been backing the Brinks truck to his door year after year so often that the drivers know his address by heart, and Grayson thinks he’s so special, but he’s just the guy asking today.

Nothing would thrill him more than to whip his ass at Stand & Deliver, but the reality is there’s somebody who wants to whip his ass even more, and he bleeds NXT even more than Shawn does. He’s gonna get his wish for a match against Stand & Deliver, but he’s not getting Michaels, he’s getting Johnny Gargano!

Gargano runs him off and we go to break.

Gigi Dolin vs. Jacy Jayne

Dolin rushes in, they spill to and brawl rough and ready! Jayne tries to run away climbing the barricade but Gigi brings her back inside. Jacy rolls out the far side of the ring and blasts Dolin with a rolling elbow! A chair shot evens the odds for Gigi and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Jayne with a mat slam to keep Dolin off-balance before locking a reverse chinlock on. Into the ropes, snapmare sets up a kick combo, cover for two. Dolin with a small package, only two, right hands from her knees and to her feet, leg kicks and punches, a roundhouse lays Jacy out!

Drawing her up, cravate knee lift, off the ropes, jumping neckbreaker sets up a senton, but again Gigi kicks out! Dolin gets the better of her...

Gigi Dolin wins by pinfall with a Cobra Twist slam.

Post-match, Jacy attacks and horsecollars Gigi with a chair but referees swarm to pull her away.

Backstage, Brooks Jensen apologizes to Fallon Henley for taking so long to make up.

Josh Briggs rolls up to give Brooks the good news about his meeting with Kiana and they all hug. James calls and Jensen answers, making a date for tonight. He leaves, and Fallon and Josh have a chat about the mystery roses that Brooks definitely did not send to Kiana and decide they were right about her in the first place.

Bron Breakker heads to the ring with no music and calls for a microphone.

He says he was supposed to say what he’s gonna say next week, but it’s time. It’s time for the biggest match on the biggest stage, no more obstacles, no more road blocks, NXT Stand & Deliver. He calls Carmelo Hayes down.

Hayes says it’s time for their paths to finally cross as two of the biggest stars in NXT, and just listen to the crowd. Bron says he’s been disappointed every time he waited for a new challenger and it wasn’t Carmelo’s music, and they talk about how they’ve been keeping eyes on each other.

They talk about the meeting before NXT 2.0 where they were selected to lead the brand and how they’ve fulfilled that prophecy and there’s nowhere to go but to fight each other. Carmelo says he’ll see him at Stand & Deliver and shake on it.

Hayes reminds him he’s never been secondary to anybody, and Bron says they’ll just have to see on April 1.

Tyler Bate leads Thea Hail in a meditation exercise backstage while Andre Chase and Duke Hudson watch on.

She’s feeling great and Bate says hopefully this will give her the tools to deal with future hardships. Tyler says as people no one is beyond fear and we must learn to move beyond fear, and he wishes Chase good luck in his match tonight.

Duke, who’s been visibly scoffing the whole time, tells Tyler he can’t believe anyone buys that snake oil.

The Schism make their entrance and we go to break.

Andre Chase vs. Joe Gacy

Back from commercial, match joined in progress and Chase lays Gacy out and follows with mounted punches! Kick blocked, big knee from Joe, straight suplex for two! Andre with a back elbow, right hands, and the C-H-A-S-E-U stomps follow! Trading kicks, Gacy with a Rock Bottom for separation!

Up top, jockeying for position, Thea Hail ends up jawing at Ava Raine and isn’t afraid but Chase congratulating her gives Gacy the opportunity...

Joe Gacy wins by pinfall with the Upside-Down.

We see Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn performing a full moon ritual.

Commentary hypes up next week’s show and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Chase U are walking backstage.

Thea Hail is sympathetic to Andre for his loss but she’s excited that she conquered her fears. Duke Hudson gives him the business for not caring about losing his match and says Chase U is an institution of losers and he storms off.

Wes Lee is interviewed backstage.

He says it’s intense lately but he loves how bad everybody wants to fight him for the NXT North American Championship. Nathan Frazer gave him a hell of a match and you gotta love it.

Axiom rolls up and challenges Wes to a match, and Lee says he’ll see him next week.

Meiko Satomura vs. Roxanne Perez (c) (NXT Women’s Championship)

We get a handshake and go to break.

Back from commercial, Perez gets to the ropes and breaks a hold. Test of strength, Satomura pinning the champion down until she kips up, front kick and an arm drag, keeping the knucklelocks for one more cover! Perez with right hands, Meiko hits a rolling solebutt, whip across, flying shoulder block.

Snapmare into a Japanese stranglehold, Roxanne to her feet but Satomura keeps the hold on, falling back, Perez reverses it into one of her own! Meiko slings her off, champion ducks a lariat, back roll into a tijeras and Satomura bails to the floor! Roxanne with a dive, Meiko blasts her with a forearm and follows it with uppercuts!

Handspring knee drop, following it up with a stepover toehold, a spinning toehold, the vet going to work on the champion’s legs but she counters to a side headlock. Satomura with palm strikes, off the ropes, big shoulder block but Perez is fired up and throws chops with abandon!

Big buzzsaw roundhouse kick from the challenger, chest kicks, Roxanne reverses one into a dragon screw! Elbows in the corner, side Russian legsweep reversed into an arm wringer, Meiko goes for Scorpio Rising, nobody home! Shotgun dropkick sends Satomura to the floor, kip up, off the ropes, suicide dive connects!

Up top, jockeying for position, Perez slips under her, looking for a sunset flip powerbomb but Meiko hangs on with elbows, diving splash... THE KNEES ARE UP! Small package almost does it! Upkicks from the challenger, champion with a kick to the spine, whip blocked, Satomura staggers her with a forearm, Death Valley Driver countered into a slam for two!

Satomura with a crucifix pin for two! Back suplex slam follows, looking for another, elbows to block, Pele kick takes Perez off her feet! Saito suplex connects... NOT ENOUGH! Fireman’s carry, this time the Death Valley Driver connects! Off the ropes... ROXANNE PEREZ KICKS OUT OF THE HANDSPRING KNEE!

To the apron, Roxanne shoves Meiko into the post, kick on the floor sets up Pop Rox but Satomura blocks! Scorpio Rising on the floor, back inside, cover for two! Another attempt, Roxanne reverses...

Roxanne Perez wins by pinfall with a bridging folding press to retain the NXT Women’s Championship.

Post-match, Satomura raises Perez’s hand but the champion collapses!

Referees rush down to check on her and call a squad of medics to the ring.

EMTs arrive with a stretcher and Booker T gets up from commentary to go check on his student while she’s loaded onto the board.

Shawn Michaels gets to ringside right as she’s put on the gurney and walks with everyone to the back.

She’s loaded into the ambulance.

That’s the show, folks.
