We're in the Capitol Wrestling Center for NXT tonight. We're starting the night with ladies action!
Kay Lee Ray defeated Ember Moon via pin @ 14:40. KLR finished off Moon with the Gory Bomb. Really good stuff from both women with the crowd into it. KLR gets the big win and Moon isn't hurt by the loss in my opinion. Nothing more you could ask from an opener tonight and a good start to the show.
Backstage, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch are getting ready for their tag title match. Ridge Holland and Pete Dunne are also there to give them a pep talk. Sounds like that match will be the main event.
Carmelo Hayes vs. Santos Escobar is next after a break.
A vignette for the "new" NXT airs. It starts next week!
We get some highlights of Indi Hartwell's bachelorette party. She's out to dinner with some of the NXT ladies. Hartwell asks McKenzie Mitchell if she has her mic for an interview. Indi's best friend, Persia, is there because she was in town to see Disney. Hartwell thanks and gives props to Candice LeRae for making her the woman she is today. Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter are making a Tik Tok video. LeRae gives the final toast. She was against this whole thing in the beginning but now she just wants what's best for Indi. Indi is glad Candice game around but says Johnny Gargano will be a tougher nut to crack. Indi says Dexter will have to crack Gargano's nut. Indi and Candice wonder what Dexter is doing at his bachelor party. They decide to leave and go find out.
Commentary hypes the wedding for next week.
Santos Escobar w/ Legado del Fantasma defeated Carmelo Hayes via pin @ 13:50. Another really good match tonight. Late in the match, Wilde/Mendoza distracted the ref allowing Elektra Lopez to body slam Hayes on the outside. This allowed Escobar to finish Hayes with the Phantom Driver.
Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter warm up for their match tonight.
Malcolm Bivens promo now where he hypes the Creed brothers (Julius & Brutus). They make their debut tonight.
McKenzie Mitchell is with William Regal. Regal says next week there will be a fatal four way to determine Samoa Joe's #1 contender: Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne, LA Knight, and Tommaso Ciampa.
The Creed Brothers w/ Diamond Mine defeated Chuckie Viola & Paxton Averill via pin @ 2:16. This was an absolute squash. The Creed Brothers have a very amateur style. Post match, Diamond Mine celebrates in the ring.
Io Shirai and Zoey Stark warm up backstage. The women's tag match is next!
Ember Moon is interviewed by McKenzie Mitchell. Moon says it's been a rough few months full of losses. This is where she's suppose to dig down deep. Moon doesn't know if she can deal with this any more and she knows what she has to do. Stay tuned....
Hit Row promo now. Swerve isn't mad because he should of seen this all coming. Swerve says Legado will never catch Hit Row slipping again. They say they aren't laughing. They all take turns with some lines. If you didn't know, now you know!
Io Shirai & Zoey Stark defeated Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter via pin @ 12:02 to retain the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships. Late in the match, Stark accidentally knocked Shirai off the apron. Catanzaro would hit a big splash on Stark but Shirai was able to come back and break it up. Shirai turned it around and was able to pin Catanzaro after a top rope moonsault. Not as good as the other women's match but still solid. Post match, Kacy and Kayden were watching Io and Zoey celebrate from the ramp when MANDY ROSE, GIGI DOLIN, AND JACY JAYNE ATTACKED KACY AND KAYDEN.
Kyle O'Reilly promo now. O'Reilly talks about closing a chapter in his career and life at Takeover 36. O'Reilly doesn't care what it takes to get to Samoa Joe and the NXT Championship. O'Reilly says one obsession ended at Takeover. Another one will begin next week.
We go to highlights of Dexter Lumis' bachelor party. Lumis, Gargano, zombie referee, Drake Maverick, and Odyssey Jones are riding together. Gargano tells Lumis he isn't paying for the wedding. Cameron Grimes joins to take this party TO THE MOON!! Grimes offers to pay for the whole wedding too for a truce with Grimes. They arrive at a race track for go carts. Grimes offers $10,000 to the winner of the rack. Indi and Candice are spying on them. Gargano wins it. They go axe throwing next. Lumis wins that easily while Gargano is horrible. Lumis tries to help Gargano with his form and Gargano improves. Now they go to a trampoline park. Grimes will get Jones $2,000 to send Maverick to the moon and he happily does! The last event of the night is laser tag. Gargano's team wins and he ends up high fiving Lumis at the end. Indi shows up to say Dexter finally crushed Johnny's nut!! They all do a group hug and Gargano says, "LET'S GO HAVE A WEDDING!"
Mei Ying's debut is next!
Franky Monet and Jessi Kamea are backstage making fun of the InDex wedding. Robert Stone is here and he just came from Regal's office. Stone says next week Monet will face Raquel Gonzalez for the NXT Women's Championship!
Mei Ying w/ Boa defeated Virginia Ferry via pin @ 0:49. Complete domination. Ying took Ferry down by the throat and pinned her to the mat. Not much to go off of here but I'll keep an open mind about it. Let's see how it develops in the next few weeks.
LA Knight promo and he says it's championship season. Let me talk to you! He hypes next week's fatal four way. Knight says he'll smack around three of our favorite. Then, Samoa Joe's time is up because who's game is it......LA Knight's game!
MSK warms up backstage. The main event is next!
One more vignette with the new NXT logo.
Ciampa promo now where he talks about being motivated. His new motivation is Pete Dunne. He knows Dunne is pulling the strings. His next goal....it's been too long. He wants Goldie back!
MSK defeated Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch w/ Pete Dunne & Ridge Holland via pin @ 12:25 to retain the NXT Tag Team Championships. MSK finished off Lorcan with their block buster tag team manuever. To the surprise of no one, this was great. All four of these men can go. You just need to give them the platform and time. Both of which they got. Post match, MSK escape as Dunne and Holland get in the ring. DUNNE AND HOLLAND STARE DOWN LORCAN AND BURCH BEFORE ATTACKING THEM!!! Dunne and Holland begin to leave before Holland goes back to inflict more damage. Dunne and Holland then leave together to end the show!
