WWE NXT RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG FOR JULY 4
I’ve been looking for a trace, looking for a heart, looking for a lover in a world that’s much too dark, but now I’m here to liveblog this here pro wrestling show for you, folks.
Blair Davenport vs. Roxanne Perez
Perez attacks Davenport during her entrance and beats her down until we get a bell! Dive to the floor, back inside, a nearfall off of a side Russian legsweep! Blair with a sliding knee in the ropes for two and we go to break!
Back from commercial, Blair in control, Perez gets a monkey flip off and gets some breathing room! Uppercut countered, Davenport sets her up top, climbs up after her... CROSSBODY COUNTERS THE BACK SUPLEX! Back and forth, Blair with a nearfall, Roxanne sidesteps a charge, Pop Rox denied but a crossbody gets here a deep two anyway!
On the floor, Blair regains control after passing Roxanne into the steel steps and blasting her with a knee! Back inside, Falcon Arrow back inside... NOPE! But Perez is running on instinct and Davenport is easily able to follow up...

Tiffany Stratton rolls up confused as to why everything isn’t about her.
Mustafa Ali makes his entrance and we go to break.
Back from commercial we get a Baron Corbin video package about how he’s got everything he wants except to be feared and respected and for people to say “who’s next for Corbin” and not “who’s Corbin next for?”
He knows he has to kill the past, and he doesn’t want to run any of his gimmicks back, he wants to burn all the ships, because there’s no going back. No more gimmicks, no nonsense, no bullshit.
Mustafa Ali vs. Tyler Bate
Collar and elbow, Bate breaks Ali’s grip easily and shoves him back, test of strength, trying to wrestle Mustafa down, shifting to a hammerlock, wristlock, Ali rolls through and gets a side headlock out of it! Block the shoot off, backslide, cover for one! Trading nearfalls, exchanging headlock takeover sequences and Mustafa gets an arm-trap crossface out of it!
Tyler reverses to an ankle lock, kicked away, Ali with chops in the corner, whip across, up and over, big dropkick from the Big Strong Boy! Clothesline sends Mustafa to the floor, he follows after, big uppercut sends us to break!
Back from commercial, Bate with Bop and Bang, Ali takes him down with a chinlock, Tyler posts up into a fireman’s carry and starts in on the airplane spin! Up top, off the top, but Mustafa rolls away just in time! Setting him up top, Bate climbs up with him, perched and jockeying for position, and when the dust clears...
Mustafa Ali wins by pinfall with the 450 splash.
Post-match, Ali challenges Wes Lee to a North American Championship match at Great American Bash at the end of the month.
Joe Gacy and Ava Raine are interviewed backstage about how they expect the right team to win tonight and the outcome will only strengthen the Schism. Joe says tonight we eliminate a problem from NXT forever, and we go to break.
Kelani Jordan vs. Tatum Paxley
Feeling out, off the ropes, drop down, leapfrog, dropkick sets up an arm drag into an armbar! Paxley turns her around, rear chinlock applied, clubbing blows when she gets up, Kelani catches her reversing a suplex...
Kelani Jordan wins by pinfall with a Stundog Millionaire.
Post-match, Cora Jade makes her entrance to give Jordan a “warm” welcome and tell her that any friend of Dana Brooke is an enemy of hers, and they have absolutely zero effect on her. Kelani challenges her to a match right here and right now to settle it, and Cora responds by telling her not to tell her what to do, ever.
We go to a Chase U meeting and Andre Chase has some people to recognize.
He gives Duke Hudson credit for helping the school not just survive, but to thrive while he was out and reaffirms that he’s the MVP. Secondly, he acknowledges the uncrowned NXT Women’s Champion Thea Hail, who made Tiffany Stratton tap out and would have won if it weren’t for Charlie Dempsey and Drew Gulak.
Somebody asks about guest lectures, Andre pops his lid and Duke takes over to scream directly at the poor schmuck.
We see the ring crew taking the rings off for our upcoming NXT Underground match and we go to break.
Damon Kemp vs. Eddy Thorpe (NXT Underground Match)
Kemp takes Thorpe down for mounted punches, big spinebuster sets up a slam, back into a sleeper hold in the middle of the ring but Eddy breaks free! Action to the floor, Damon with hammer fists to the back of the neck and then throwing Thorpe into the barricade right in front of Gable Steveson!

Eddy Thorpe wins by referee stoppage.
Post-match there’s a lot of chaos but Gable Steveson stands tall.
Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams cut a promo backstage that invites Judgment Day to come to NXT and follow up on their threat, because here Trick and Melo are judge, jury, and executioner.
And so we go to break.
Back from commercial, Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo visits Tony D’Angelo in prison.
D’Angelo unloads on him about the tape Joe Coffey shared, and Stacks says he cut a deal that’s great for both of them, and Joe sits down with them. Lorenzo says Joe was in the truck for a long time, and next week Coffey and him will have a match, and if Stacks wins, Tony gets out of jail and the Family gets a shot at the tag titles.
If Coffey wins, Tony will be put away for a long time. D’Angelo berates Channing for making this deal and Stacks tells him he’s just gonna have to live with it. Joe picks up the phone and says goodbye to Tony.
Jacy Jayne vs. Lyra Valkyria

She opens the door to find it vandalized with paint reading “PHONY” and a note from Gigi Dolin promising she can’t outrun her past. Kiana vows that now, the gloves are off.
Back at ringside, Von Wagner is beating poor Big Body Javi up for some reason. He goes to press slam Javi but Robert Stone is here to talk him down! It doesn’t work! Von slams Bernal through the announce desk!
We get another video package for Bronco Nima and Lucien Price, and are promised their debut next week.
Creed Brothers (Brutus & Julius Creed) vs. the Dyad (Jagger Reid & Rip Fowler) (Loser Leaves NXT Match)
Brawling before the bell, Creeds get the better of the Dyad and Gacy is ejected as the match begins and we go to break!
Back from commercial, the Dyad have taken the momentum, grinding Brutus down and working him over at length. Tags made, Julius in hot with belly-to-belly suplexes, double lariats send them to the floor, double dropkick follows it up! Slingshot senton, but the tide turns again back inside.

Commentary hypes up next week’s show.
A recap of the Creeds’ post-match farewell to the NXT crowd follows.
Bron Breakker makes his entrance and gets on the mic.
He says in case some of us live under rocks, he competed in the biggest match in NXT history a couple weeks ago. On the most watched episode of NXT in almost two years, because he fought Seth Rollins. It was a war, but the kicker is that everyone believed that he had a shot...
...until he speared Seth in the middle of the ring and heard the energy in the arena drop. Seth went on to prove to the world how good he is, but here’s the thing— he’s only had 70 matches, and Rollins has had more pay-per-view matches than that! Everything he’s done has been right here in this building!
He’s 25 and he’s proved he can hang with the very best in the business and you should get used to seeing his face for decades to come, because he’s got people to beat and championships to collect. People ask him what’s next, and—
Enter Ilja Dragunov!
He says he’s next in line and he came out here head up, face to face, to let him know that he’s the only man between Ilja and the NXT Championship, and he will eliminate him. Ilja says he’s the most dangerous man in NXT and they brawl until referees pull them apart!
But of course, Dragunov can’t accept the end of the brawl and dives on Breakker with an elbow! Bron spears him but gets pulled back apart.
That’s the show, folks.
