Clever character development and some strong in-ring performances? It’s that time once again guys, time to check out the best WWE Network show… No, not Chronicle! Let’s check out what happened This Week on NXT!
Kairi Sane def Lacey Evans
The start of this match consisted of a show off as of athleticism, both women letting each other know that they will not easily be taken down. Lacey managed to keep up with the pace Sane but soon brought her down with harsh strikes while Sane tried to come back. Lacey’s onslaught continued as Sane attempted to gain momentum, but was halted numerous times. Finally, Sane made a move work after her spear and we were back on even footing. In the end, Kairi achieved the win with the Insane Elbow. A balanced match that highlights both women and fun moments sprinkled in to keep it interesting.
– Undisputed Era was interviewed after their victory last week, refusing to explain Strongs actions after he turned on partner Pete Dunne.
– AOP left Paul Ellering on their RAW debut, they were interviewed as Paul lectured them. AOP stated his chapter is over and left him once again.
– Johnny Gargano will be back in NXT next week
– Shayna Baszler was interviewed stated that no one will jump on this bandwagon, this is a war wagon. She knows who’s been with her since the beginning. The women’s division isn’t going to be all compliments, it’s all about who can wrestle.
– Ember was interviewed with Nia Jax who is excited to start a new chapter in her life on RAW.
– Lars Sullivan will take on Killian Dane next week.
Heavy Machinery vs Riddick Moss & Tino Sabbatelli (No Contest)
Tino got some negative chants thrown his way as the match got started, but soon enough it got crazy as Heavy Machinery paid homage to the Bush Whackers. Not going to lie, these guys never fail in making me smile. Sabbatelli and Moss dominated in their corner, showing impressive strength and synergy in their teamwork. Eventually, Otis came on off the hot tag and started going wild. All men lay flat until a sudden appearance of a new tag team.
They’re finally here! It’s WAR MACHINE!… oh wait they’re called War Raiders now? No idea why they haven’t stuck with their original name. But they’re here now, they tore both teams a new one and are ready for whoever steps to them next.
