Match 1
Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan vs The Mighty
(referee: Drake Wuertz)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Oney Lorcan pins Nick Miller with a victory roll
Time: 7:51

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Lorcan and Burch were aggressive as usual, but so were The Mighty. The match went back and forth, and it was difficult to tell which team would come out on top. I really liked this, and the final few minutes were quite fun and exciting.


Ring Area
After the match, The Mighty attack Lorcan and Burch. The Mighty are proud of themselves as they leave the ring.

Earlier today, Kairi Sane is not happy, and she’s not finished with Shayna Baszler. Dakota Kai doesn’t like what Shayna and her friends have been doing to Kairi. Io Shirai wants to protect her best friend. All three of them want all three of Baszler, Duke, and Shafir.


Match 2
EC3 vs Marcel Barthel
(referee: Tom Castor)

Show/Hide Results

Result: EC3 wins via pinfall after The One Percent
Time: 4:08

Match Thoughts
Good match. Barthel looked pretty good, but ultimately this was a rather quick and dominant win for EC3.


Ring Area
After the match, EC3 addresses Bobby Fish and the chair shot Fish delivered a few weeks ago. EC3 is vindictive, and he is coming for Fish.

A promo for Dijakovic. Feast your eyes.

Earlier this week at the Performance Center, Candice LeRae refused to answer questions about her “new attitude.”


Match 3
Vanessa Borne vs Mia Yim
(referee: Drake Wuertz)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Mia Yim wins via pinfall after Seoul Food
Time: 4:18

Match Thoughts
Borne had some offense, but this was Yim’s match. Yim looked strong. Borne looked about like she usually does.


Tommaso Ciampa talks about all the promises he’s kept about being the best and most dangerous person in NXT. He expects people to follow his lead.


Match 4
Keith Lee vs Lars Sullivan
(referee: Tom Castor)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Lars Sullivan wins via pinfall after the Freak Accident
Time: 8:00

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Keith Lee continued to show why he is so exciting to watch. He went for multiple dives in this match, and though not all of them connected, they all looked very impressive. Sullivan looked good as well, and he fought smart in the end which fits perfectly with his character.


Show Impressions
This definitely had a house show feel (since this was initially announced as a house show before being changed to a TV taping), but I think that allowed the show to focus on the matches even more than usual. As a change of pace, I really liked it.

Match of the Night
Keith Lee vs Lars Sullivan
A very good big man match between two guys who do things a little differently than a lot of big men.
