Plus, a whole lot more!

Come right back here at 8 p.m. ET when the NXT live blog kicks off once the show starts on USA. A running record of everything that happens will be below this line here.

Enjoy the show!


Shadow zone, I come to realize that I’m home now, but you can’t see inside me while I liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with a black screen and garbled audio for most of the bumper, so that’s ominous.

A recap of Stand & Deliver follows.

Indi Hartwell makes her entrance and gets on the mic.

She says she didn’t think she was ever gonna win the title, because she’d get a few wins, get some momentum, and slide right back down. She really doubted herself, and holding the title was a pipe dream, and she gives the crowd a bunch of credit for being behind her.

There’s someone else she needs to acknowledge, though, and that’s Roxanne Perez, and if it weren’t for her there’d have never been a ladder match and she wouldn’t be standing here, so Roxanne should get the first shot at her title.

Enter Zoey Stark.

She says Indi had quite the upset but she’s holding a title that’s been held by legends and future Hall of Famers, and that’s disgusting. They elevated the title, but Hartwell is on the floor, and if she’s out here handing title matches out, why not hand one to Zoey tonight.

Indi accepts the challenge and Zoey says she’s gonna make history by being the shortest-reigning women’s champion we’ve ever seen, period.

We see footage of Axiom challenging Wes Lee to a match for the North American Championship and Lee accepts the challenge.

A Dragon Lee video package follows and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Gallus are interviewed backstage.

They say if we thought they were a problem before, imagine how it’ll be now that they’re at full strength. Joe Coffey says he’s going after some gold himself, but first he’s gonna pick a couple fights so people realize this is their kingdom.

Dragon Lee vs. Nathan Frazer

Noam Dar jumps the barricade with his Heritage Cup and cuts a promo about finally being here in NXT. He says he’s gonna be watching for contenders to the cup and he’s on the tippy top etc.

Dragon Lee wins by pinfall with a running knee.

We go to class with Chase U.

Andre Chase says it felt great to kick the shit out of the Schism in front of the biggest Stand & Deliver crowd in history. He thanks Tyler Bate for his hard work and dedication and Duke Hudson pipes up looking for his own recognition. Andre said he was gonna give him special attention but then he remembered what he said about trophies and awards and such and knew he wouldn’t care.

Hudson gets up and says this is totally different and the legacy he’s created in Chase U is something worth honoring. Andre says he’s damn right and next week they’re gonna have a ceremony to celebrate and award him the MVP trophy!

We see Zoey Stark and Indi Hartwell walking backstage separately to send us to break.

Back from commercial, we get a vignette from new tag champs Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn where they talk about their win and how there’s always ashes left smoldering and a challenge hanging in the air and they’re only beginning to crack the surface of just how perilous they can be.

Wes Lee is interviewed backstage.

He’s riding on cloud nine right now because they tour the house down in LA and the entire match felt like a human pinball machine. He says Axiom superkicked his face off but he owes him one, and they’re gonna wake everybody up when they go at it again tonight.

Back inside, back and forth...

Indi Hartwell wins by pinfall with a crucifix pin to retain the NXT Women’s Championship.

Post-match, Tiffany Stratton makes her entrance but before she can do anything, Cora Jade returns through the crowd and hits a butterfly DDT! She holds the title up before dropping it on Indi’s fallen body.

Cora leaves and confronts Tiffany on her way out.

Backstage, Brooks Jensen apologizes to Kiana James, who is mad he wouldn’t just give her her back.

Fallon Henley rolls up with Josh Briggs to yell at Kiana for not telling him she was cheating. Kiana says they weren’t exclusive but everything changed after their first kiss, but then changed again, and it’s just not the same.

Jensen is beside himself and Josh tries to tell him there’s plenty of fish in the sea but he tells him to stay out of his relationships and storms off. Briggs says the tag title rematch next week is gonna be a lot of fun and Fallon agrees.

Ivy Nile makes her entrance.

We get a memorial graphic for Bushwhacker Butch and we go to break.

Ivy Nile wins by submission with her Compassionate Release.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Ilja Dragunov is interviewed.

He respects Wes Lee as a champion and a competitor but says his energy was unmatched.

Von Wagner says that’s a lot of words for “I went to LA and lost” but Ilja says he’d rather have gone and lost than not have been invited in the first place and they go head-to-head. Robert Stone rolls up to separate them and says he’ll get Von a match against Ilja next week, but if he doesn’t win, they’re done.

Axiom vs. Wes Lee (c) (NXT North American Championship)

Collar and elbow, Axiom with a deep nearfall off an early pin, headscissors counter to a headlock takeover! Axiom posts out, deathlock, shifting to a kneeling surfboard! Away, off the ropes, lucha shove, slide under, tijeras, Lee follows it with a dropkick, cover for two!

Frankensteiner sends Wes to the floor and Axiom dives on him! Wes returns the favor and we go to break.

Back from commercial, both men staggered and trading punches, Lee powers up with strikes and follows with a dropkick to the back! Corner uppercut, enzuigiri, German suplex connects! Cardiac Kick shifted into a stomp to counter Golden Ratio, Michinoku Driver... SO CLOSE!

Handspring caught into a bodyscissors sleeper! Wes flagging but not failing, small package for two! Superkick from the ropes, Lee drags Axiom into position, but the luchador knees him in the ribs when he goes for a Whisper in the Wind! Running knee, laying in wait, slide under the Golden Ratio...

SCRYPTS appears over the PA and says he sees Axiom crystal clear, his truth and the hidden corners of his mind, but Axiom is ready for the run-in and kicks him out of midair!

Nathan Frazer is interviewed backstage.

He says he didn’t sart this year on a great note but he knows deep in his core he can turn it around. When you have a moment of enlightenment your perspective changes, and then your reality changes, and he’s pretty sure that’s what just happened to him.

We see Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams walking backstage and we go to break.

Back from commercial we get a hype reel for three new NXT Superstars, coming soon.

Commentary hypes next week’s show up.

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams make their entrance.

Trick hypes his man up and Carmelo talks about winning the title on the biggest stage NXT has had and now there’s no question who the man is, because he’s the NXT Champion and he is HIM. Williams says this is the HIM Era and Hayes puts Bron Breakker over as one of his greatest opponents and he means it when he says he respects him.

He calls Bron out so he can tell him something.

Enter Bron Breakker.

Melo thanks him for coming out and says they brought it to each other and it was real cool of him to present him with the title after and he appreciates that. From him and all the people in NXT, he thanks Bron. Breakker appreciates that and says the title has a great legacy and it was his job and his duty to pass the torch the most respectful way he can.

Tommaso Ciampa did that for him and that’s why he did it for Carmelo. He doesn’t know what’s next, but he’ll leave Melo with this— NXT is just as much about the superstars as it is about the fans. They hear us every week and it’s his honor to congratulate Hayes and ask the crowd to give it up.

Melo asks Bron to hold up and shakes his hand. They hug and Breakker raises Hayes’ hand... AND TAKES HIM OUT WITH A SHORT-ARM LARIAT! Powerslam for Trick! Bron lays in wait... spear to the champion!

Breakker poses.

That’s the show, folks.
