To see the actor without tears, dark rivers carve the years between the lines of self control, but me? I’m just here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.

The show opens with Judgment Day making their entrance to thunderous “Mami!” chants for Rhea Ripley.

Finn Balor gets on the mic and tells NXT that daddy’s home, because this is the house that he built and he’s back to lay down some house rules with the Judgment Day. He introduces his compatriots, Senor Money in the Bank Damian Priest, the Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley, and everyone’s favorite, “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio.

Priest calls out Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams and says they thought they were getting a divided Judgment Day, but they’re getting the Judgment Day that runs NXT, the Murderer’s Row of WWE! Dom tries to speak—

Enter Trick and Carmelo.

Hayes wonders why they call him Dirty Dom, is it because he dropped the so— Trick cuts him off and they hop up to the ring together. They say Finn may have built the house but it’s got Melo’s fingerprints over it now and everybody wants to have an opinion about Balor getting the better of him on Raw, but now he’s in his arena, trying to ball on his corner.

Priest admits they run NXT, but they don’t have Judgment Day staring at them every week, and don’t forget that the Archer of Infamy hit the bullseye every week. Trick taunts him, Hayes says they’re gonna keep it plain and simple and challenges them to a match.

Finn tells him if he comes at the Prinxe, he best not miss, and Hayes is game to do the thing.

Tony D’Angelo is interviewed via satellite about Stacks fighting for his freedom and he’s short on time and seems to have his doubts.

Chase U make their entrance and we go to break.

Bron Breakker cuts a promo telling Ilja Dragunov he’s made a really big mistake and Ilja’s been behind him since day one and tonight there won’t be enough referees to hold him back.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Von Wagner and Robert Stone are shown speaking backstage.

Wagner admits he got out of hand last week because Javi was talking the same crap the kids in school used to, and it was hard not to feel different living with a plate in your head. Nobody wanted to partner with him and he decided if he was gonna be treated like a monster, he’d be a monster to make it through his life.

Last week when he looked up and the people were with him, he didn’t know what to do, but for the first time in his life he thinks he’s being himself, and he has to thank Stone’s annoying irritating ass for that.
