NXT returned last night (December 30) from the Congressional Wrestling Center (CWC) in Orlando, Florida. You can find the results in the live blog here.
NXT has a real Baller market segment this week, New Year Devil Shows that it has been quite hyped.
Finn Bálor and Kyle O’Reilly won the year-end awards of the annual competition, which is the choice we agreed. They worked hard to sell it for the championship game next week.
The Finn did not accept his award, but left it to the general manager William Regal (William Regal). But he gave him Kyle̵
O’Reilly knew that Finn’s actions were encouraging, and it was a consolation prize. But he told the champion that the hardware is not under him. Because there is evidence that he deserves to share a ring with Bálor and is worth putting on the top of the card. The champion then told his challenger that next week, he will retaliate against O’Reilly for his jaw.
These two people, especially O’Reilly, are both powerful propaganda work in this area, which really deepens the excitement of next week’s game.
However, they were interrupted by Karrion Kross and Scarlett. The dark angel of Kross told the man in the ring that it doesn’t matter who wins next week, because the gold belongs to Karrion. After defeating Roderick Strong in the Premier League, Dunn was added to try to deepen the fight with Finn, and the title became a bit crowded. well.
Cross has other questions. When he put down the “Tick tock” slogan, Damian Priest was suddenly behind him. But he did not attack his “New Year Demon” enemy from behind. He waited for him to turn around.
Then, the two men defeated each other on the entire stage. I have said this in the past few weeks, but Priest found that his expression looked like a badass. Persevering in his confrontation with the unstoppable Cross will help improve his star level. I suspect “Infamous Archer” will win next week, but if they book in a similar way to their quarrel, he will be fine.
This part makes me more excited New Year Devil Than me
Johnny Gargano (Johnny Gargano) is worried about participating in this week’s North American championship race.
Gargano has never successfully defended the singles championship. He felt that he was cursed, so he and the other members of “The Way” did their best to avoid anything that could cause bad jujube. They inexplicably saw a black cat at the end of the corridor, and then walked another way. This is my favorite thing this week. (Besides, the thought of someone bringing a cat back from home annoys me.)
But when he walked through the curtain of the game, Austin theory made him sleepy, he broke the mirror and went under the ladder.
Fortunately, when Johnny finally defeated the man and won the championship, these did not affect the results of his match with Leon Ruff. This is an interesting game and reminds us that Raf is a very good wrestler. Since the leader who initially won the gold medal was upset, he has become more than just an enhanced talent to win the fl award. While still playing the weak, he incorporated more offensive capabilities into the game. This formula is very suitable for him to move forward. The whole angle makes Leon a participant of NXT and hope that he will continue to grow on Wednesday night.
Now is the time for Gargano and his family to hate the next time. I want to know if K Tian is close behind.
Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is back in two weeks, so this week we focused on the Tag team.
The Grizzlies youth team defeated Breezango in a game. But again, Ever-Rise (rules by the way) stole the show with post-match comedic antics. After the game, Chase Parker and Matt Martel left the game with a referee. They often used referees to make her look like they were stopping them. But when she got tired of their nonsense, she left, and suddenly these guys changed their tune and didn’t want to get GYV.
Ever-Rise has slowly changed from “Who are these people?” I found that two guys are funny every week. I hope NXT can use Dusty Classic to present it as a comedy duo, instead of presenting them completely.
We don’t even know if Ever-Rise is in Dusty. We do know that there is an undisputed ERA. The new teams Adam Cole and Roddy Strong represent the year-end award winners.
Bronson Reed defeated Isaiah (Swerve” Scott).
This is not squash, but I think they put themselves in a corner when they booked this game. Big Thicc will not lose when he re-emerges. Apparently they had a grand plan for him. But Swerve is also experiencing a heel turn. They discussed his new attitude and lack of sportsmanship in the comments tonight. Such a quick loss could damage the change he is going through.
Considering that he is in a transitional state, this loss should not be too much harm. Maybe this will only enhance his ability to embrace the dark side.
-Pete Dunne defeated Roderick Strong in a match against a longtime opponent. I don’t know if Dunn will experience an ERA…maybe enter Kyle as a champion?
-Raw’s Lince Dorado and Gran Metalik interrupted the Santos Escobar promotion when they were talking about how William Regal had difficulty finding someone who could challenge him. Dorado rejected Escobar’s request, saying what lucha was before Lucha beat Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Noah by two-thirds of the House of Representatives (still LHP?). Escobar will defend his lightweight title against Metalik next week.
-Mercedes Martinez overwhelmed the poor soul this week. I am very happy that they can lean on her heel role this time. Last time she was on high heels, but they also paired her with the clumsy Robert Stone, which distracted him. Now she is just a killer.
-Xia Li&Boa’s training has been completed, they will return to NXT next week. The time has come, but now I am beginning to wonder if this will be translated on the ring. Whether green talents such as Xia and Boa can perform at the required level. NXT clearly thinks so, so we will find the answer next week.
-Next week we will provide a promotional video for Raquel González/Rhea Ripley’s last women’s race. Like most of their videos, this is very good. This became their friendship in real life and made the hatred between them very personal. Before that, there was more of a conflict between two powers. There are more now.
I have to admit that I was distracted in many performances. Usually, I try to adjust everything and focus on NXT objectively, which is better at some times than others. But tonight I really want to watch the Brody Lee Tribute Show on Dynamite. Brody’s death is still difficult to understand, and I would rather watch it with other sad wrestling fans.
Therefore, NXT games like tag group games or Roddy/Dunne performed better or better and did not attract my attention as I bet.
Trying to eliminate my interference and look at this issue as objectively as possible, this is still a good display. There were some strong market segments in the second half, such as Finn/Kyle entering Priest/Kross and the main event championship. If you have watched Dynamite and want to know what to check out from NXT, all the shows are good, but it is definitely the second half.
