I have often told you stories about the way I lived the life of a drifter, waiting for the day when I’d take your hand and sing you songs. Then maybe you would say, “Come lay with me, love me,” and I would surely stay, but now I have to liveblog this here pro wrestling show, folks.

The show opens with the double memorial graphic for Terry Funk and Bray Wyatt.

A recap of Heatwave last week follows.

Creed Brothers (Brutus & Julius Creed) vs. the Dyad (Jagger Reid & Rip Fowler) (Steel Cage Match)

The Schism jump the Creeds during their entrance, Gacy locks Julius in the ring with the Dyad while masked goons take Brutus away and we’re off!

Creed fighting valiantly against the two-on-one, suplexes, Stretch Muffler on Reid and then an ankle lock on Fowler when he tries to make the save... ONE-ARM POWERBOMB ON JAGGER WHILE HE KEEPS THE ANKLE LOCK ON AND WE GO TO BREAK!

Back from commercial, the Dyad are back in control, smashing Julius into the cage face-first over and over! Brutus returns to ringside smashing his way through masked goons! HE TEARS THE CAGE DOOR OFF ITS HINGES AND THROWS IT IN THE RING! House of fire, suplexes on both Dyad men, he picks the door back up and smashes ‘em with it over and over!

Double leg into mounted punches on Reid, Fowler from behind, Dragon suplex, Creed lands on his feet! Military press and he throws Rip into the cage wall! Julius recovers, double-teams, throwing Reid into the wall again and again! Dyad putting a comeback together, trying to crush Brutus under the cage door but Julius saves his brother!

Creeds turn the table and crush the Dyad under the door! BRUTUS BOMB! Stereo falling lariats... IT’S OVER!

The Creed Brothers win by pinfall with stereo falling lariats, earning their reinstatement onto the NXT roster.

Roxanne Perez cuts a promo about her three opponents tonight where she talks about how she used to respect all three of them for various reasons but now she does not, and she is going to win tonight and regain the title.

We get a video package covering the participants in both groups of the Global Heritage Invitational and we go to break.

Back from commercial, the D’Angelo Family are hanging out with their title belts when Carmelo Hayes rolls up with his.

They talk about how gold matters and the Street Profits roll up and Montez Ford tells Hayes they love what he’s doing with the title. Carmelo appreciates the love and says he needs to silence the rah-rah and erase the asterisk from the record, and he leaves.

Tony D’Angelo acknowledges that the Profits used to run the tag division around here, and Montez says maybe next time they’re here they’ll check in on the tag titles. A gaggle of women brawl out of an adjoining room with referees desperately trying to stop them.

Charlie Dempsey vs. Pete “BUTCH” Dunne (Global Heritage Invititational Group A Match)

Feeling out, circling, Dempsey looking for an armbar, Dunne blocks with elbows, headbutts, northern lights into grounded joint manipulation! Charlie reverses to an Ode to Jim Breaks float over into a bridging keylock and then stomp the bicep! Draw Pete up, side headlock, shot off, leapfrog, BUTCH blasts him and lays him out!

Dunne with a bicep stomp of his own, mounted forearms, trading charging forearms, enzuigiri from Pete, stomp the hands, Dempsey ducks a kick, bridging German suplex for two! Pete gets a grounded octopus briefly, double wristlock, butterfly suplex counters and gets a nearfall!

Inverted Muta Lock, BUTCH breaks free and stomps the hand! Buzzsaw roundhouse kick, up top, Charlie joins him, jockeying for position... DRAGON SUPERPLEX BUT DUNNE LANDS ON HIS FEET! Shoulder armbar, wishbone the fingers, pumphandle...

Pete Dunne wins by pinfall with Bitter End, earning two points.

And so we go to break.

Back from commercial, Dragon Lee is interviewed.

He says he feels like he’s back in North American Championship contention after pinning Dominik Mysterio and he loved tagging with Lyra Valkyria.

Mustafa Ali rolls up to say it’s not fair for Lee to get a match for the title before he gets his own one-on-one shot and people that bleed NXT deserve a champion to be proud of. Dragon agrees to that notion and Ali says he’s up to bat now.

Ilja Dragunov is in the ring.

He says last week he was face to face with a man desperately trying to prove himself and he must admit that Trick Williams impressed him. He’s no entertainer and he’s no sidekick and the way he stood his ground deserves everyone’s respect, but now nothing stands in his way to his ultimate destiny, the NXT Championship.

He sends Carmelo Hayes a message, you know he’ll—

Noam Dar interrupts from Meta-Four’s skybox and says it’s a great opportunity for an impromptu Supernova Sessions. They go back and forth and Oro Mensah insults Ilja in German and Dragunov asks for one good reason he shouldn’t go up there right now. Lash Legend says Dar isn’t afraid of him, Ilja calls her bluff and advances and they freak out and begs off.

Noam says next week he’ll give the people what they want, Ilja in one corner— and Oro in the other. Dragunov tells him he’ll break him, they trade punches, Ilja lays him out with an enzuigiri and lines him up, but Mensah bails to the floor and runs away!

Von Wagner cuts a promo calling Bron Breakker out for blindsiding him and wants to take it a step further with a no disqualification match.

Elektra Lopez and Lola Vice make their entrance and we go to break.

Dana Brooke & Kelani Jordan vs. Elektra Lopez & Lola Vice

Jordan and Lopez to start, Kelani with a big dropkick, arm drag, tag to Vice! Drop toehold catches her, side headlock, but soon Jordan gets isolated in the corner and worked over. Uraken from Lola, short whip into the ropes and a kick, whip reversed, schoolboy, Vice kicks out!

Kelani blocks a kick, steps over, spinning heel kick, tags made! Brooke with elbows on elbows in the corner, short-arm lariats, fired up, whip to the corner and she stacks ‘em up for a handspring elbow! Off the ropes, la casadora bulldog on Elektra... NOPE! Lopez and Vice on the comeback...

Elektra Lopez & Lola Vice win by pinfall with a roundhouse kick on Kelani Jordan.

Post-match, an enraged Dana Brooke yells a lot.

We see Donovan Dijak and Eddy Thorpe walking backstage and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Gigi Dolin gets her own “I’m going to win” promo.

Trick Williams is in the locker room when Carmelo Hayes rolls up. Trick says he just talked to the Street Profits but Hayes cuts him off and says he needs people to not think the only reason he beat Ilja Dragunov was because of Williams. Hayes asks if he thinks he can beat Ilja and Trick says he thinks so.

Melo doesn’t like his phrasing and asks him point blank, yes or no. Trick hesitates and Hayes storms off, leaving Williams alone as he says he doesn’t *think* Melo can beat Dragunov... he *knows* he can.

Donovan Dijak vs. Eddy Thorpe

Thorpe attacks Dijak during his entrance and throws him into the steel steps! Big boot in the ring, we get a bell and Eddy fires off a back suplex... SO CLOSE! Sheerdrop brainbuster... STILL NO! Donovan with a nearfall of his own, Thorpe counters a chokeslam into a roll-up for two and Dijak kicks his head off!

Cyclone Kill countered by a kick, trading right hands, big lariat from Eddy and both men are down and out! Tall Don wraps his belt around his fist, Thorpe ducks the shot and picks the belt up, Dijak blocks, tug of war over the belt, Eddy passes him shoulder-first into the turnbuckle and follows it with a plancha!

Dijak throws him over the announce desk and into the barricade! Donovan grabs a steel chair and brings it inside, Thorpe sidesteps, referee takes the chair away, off the ropes, Dijak clocks him with the loaded punch to block a dive! Back inside...

Donovan Dijak wins by pinfall with Cyclone Kill.

Kiana James gets her own “I’m going to win” promo about how all her opponents fall short.

Baron Corbin cuts a promo backstage when Bron Breakker rolls up demanding a “thank you” for saving his ass last week. Baron says he didn’t need the save and wishes him luck in his no DQ last week. Breakker says if he even thinks about getting involved and Corbin says he doesn’t care about either of them and has no interest in getting involved.

Bron says if he does get involved it’ll be the End of Days for him, Baron laughs, and we go to break.

Back from commercial we get another vignette for Angel Garza and Humberto Carrillo focusing on the cousins having dreams about their grandfather, Humberto Garza and woke up with Perros del Mal claw marks on their chests.

A Bray Wyatt memorial video follows.

His rocking chair sits in a spotlight amidst the sea of fireflies, and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Blair Davenport gets her turn at a “why I’m going to win” promo.

Rhea Ripley and Dominik Mysterio appear via Instagram and Rhea says Mustafa Ali and Dragon Lee want a piece of Dirty Dom but she doesn’t want to share and he’s gonna hold it until he retires. Mysterio tells them to fight it out and he’ll fight the winner, and Ripley whispers in his ear, and he says since there has to be a winner, he’ll be special guest referee.

Joe Coffey vs. Nathan Frazer (Global Heritage Invitational Group B Match)

Coffey with a waistlock takedown, Frazer rolls away from an elbow drop, Joe with a wristlock, wrenching it in, Nathan with some fancy evasions to reverse! Coffey with a body slam, Frazer gets back with a dropkick, side headlock takeover, Joe slams him into the ropes and follows it with a back suplex for two!

Back body drop puts Coffey on the apron, neck snap, Nathan off the ropes, dropkick blasts him into the announce desk and we go to break!

Back from commercial, Frazer with the moonsault inverted DDT for some breathing room! Final Cut... NOPE! Waistlock from Coffey, back elbows to break, Swiss Death cuts Nathan off! Double sledge into the corner, Everest German suplex... NOPE! Frog splash can’t do it either!

Frazer up top, Joe cuts him off, jockeying for position, Phoenix Splash misses and Coffey capitalizes...

Joe Coffey wins by pinfall with All the Best for the Bells, earning two points.

We get a Chase U vignette where Andre Chase notices Thea Hail isn’t present.

Duke Hudson says she must be late, and Andre talks about Duke being in the Global Heritage Invitational and he explains the tournament rules.

Thea shows up late as class lets out, she makes no excuses and Hudson takes her off to study hall. She says she has plans to go out and isn’t going to study hall, and Jacy Jayne rolls up to take her out.

We get NXT Anonymous footage of Drew Gulak’s young boy getting an offer from Fallon Henley to be a third with Briggs and Jensen against Gulak, Dempsey, and Kemp. He takes the deal.

Roxanne Perez and Gigi Dolin make their entrances and we go to break.

Back from commercial, we get an Instagram video from Wes Lee where he says he’s taking a moment to clear his mind because Heat Wave didn’t go how he liked, but he’s not done with Carmelo Hayes.

Tyler Bate is interviewed backstage.

He says he’s not gonna have an easy time in Group A of the Global Heritage Invitational and puts Charlie Dempsey, Axiom, and Pete Dunne over, with a special focus on his history with Dunne and how he’s gonna settle the score once and for all.

Blair Davenport vs. Gigi Dolin vs. Kiana James vs. Roxanne Perez (NXT Women’s Championship #1 Contender’s Match)

Perez mostly clearing the ring, Davenport cuts her off, back and forth, standing switch, back roll headscissors, James in, sunset flip, Dolin, everybody trading pinning predicaments, no finish! Roxanne throws James into Blair, double pin, double kickout!

Back from commercial, human submissionpede, Perez turns it around on the far end into a Boston Crab but Blair cuts her off! Up in the turnbuckles, Dolin under them all... TOWER OF DOOM! Gigi blasts Davenport with a dropkick and gets two off of it! James throws Dolin into the post, slugging it out with Blair in the middle of the ring, Roxanne with a crossbody but they catch her!

She counters into something on Davenport, takes James out, uppercuts corner to corner, passing Blair into Kiana, mounted punches follow! Side Russian legsweep blocked, Gigi back in, big lariat gets a two-for-one but Roxanne hits a hangman’s neckbreaker on her in return!

James back in to break it up, Davenport blocks Pop Rox with a dropkick in the corner! Falcon Arrow... GIGI BREAKS IT UP! Gigi Driver blocked, half nelson suplex connects but Perez breaks it up! Davenport with a double stomp on Roxanne, Perez fires up, Pop Rox connects but Blair rolls to the floor!

Turning around, Dolin catches her with a knee, Gigi Drive blocked hanging in the ropes, rolling solebutt, James in with an X-Factor...
