This week’s show begins with the new NXT Women’s Champion, Mandy Rose, coming to the ring by herself.
Mandy says it feels good. She says she’s on a whole other level and she was right. She told us she was going to be the face of NXT and she did just that. She beat the unbeatable and now she’s the baddest bitch in the whole company. The title looks better on her than anyone whose ever worn it before. And with it around her waist, we’ll be following her every move. And that goes for all of Toxic Attraction because they had a hell of a Halloween.
The camera cuts backstage where Gigi Dolan and Jacy Jayne have just attacked Zoey Stark and left her lying. Rose says Toxic Attraction runs NXT and there isn’t a woman or faction that can stop them. Io Shirai makes her entrance and stands on the runway. She says she saw what Toxic Attraction did. She doesn’t like Zoey but she likes Mandy even less. So she wants her in a match, right now. Io gets in the ring but Rose tells her nobody is scared of her now. Rose cheap-shots Shirai and throws her out of the ring.
Rose slams Io into the announce desk, then runs her into the ring post. Back inside the ring and Mandy mocks Shirai, saying this is NXT 2.0 and she will never look like her. Io attacks Rose and hits a German suplex, then double knees in the corner. Shirai goes up top but Gigi and Jayne rip her off. Io fights valiantly but the numbers get the better of her. Kayden Carter and Kacy Catanzaro then appear and even the odds for Shirai, fighting Toxic Attraction out of the ring.
Toxic Attraction are walking backstage but stop to talk to Dakota Kai. She says she didn’t do what she did to help them, she just wants to end Raquel. Kai makes her entrance as we head to the break.
We see Cameron Grimes in Duke Hudson’s poker room, along with some ladies. Duke says Grimes should just give him his money now because he’s going to strike out with the cards and the women. Grimes has no idea what game he’s even playing. We’ll return to the poker room later.
Kai storms Jade right away, beating her into the corner. Cora tries to fight back but Dakota kicks her out of the ring. Jade rushes back in but Dakota takes her down and applies a submission. Jade fights up and lands some clotheslines, followed by a Frankensteiner and a shining wizard for a two-count. Kai counters Jade and lifts her up but Cora rolls down into a pin for a two. Kai knocks her to the corner and hits the GTK for the win.
After the match Kai throws Cora out of the ring. Kai drags Jade around the ring and pulls a table out and rest it on Cora’s face. Kai gets on the apron and thinks about jumping on the table but instead gets down and grabs her skateboard, sets it on her, and walks off.
We see a replay of last week when Xyon Quinn slammed Robert Stone through a table backstage. Stone challenged Quinn to a match tonight on Twitter.
We see MSK hanging out in Florida and they’re frustrated that they lost the Tag Team Titles. They say they’ve forgotten what it was like to be the hunters. So they’re paying someone for advice, the man behind MSK apparently. Nash Carter starts explaining the story of the name but a bus pulls up in front of them and we don’t hear it. They miss the bus so they decide to walk.
Xyon Quinn comes to the ring in a black suit, where Robert Stone is waiting. Stone says he knows why Quinn attacked him last week, and it’s because he’s jealous. He says he’s better in every way, which is why he’s going to out-sing him, then stomp him out and pin him. Stone starts singing and dancing horribly and Quinn stands in the middle of the ring, smiling at him. The fans chant “you suck” and Stone says they loved it. Quinn laughs and Stone tells him to do better.
Quinn rips the microphone away and says that was a pretty interesting performance but he didn’t come out here to dance, he came to beat his ass. Stone dances like a chicken and mocks Quinn. Xyon calls for music and Shawn Michaels’s music plays, to which Quinn sings and dances along. Stone tries to attack him but Quinn sidesteps him while dancing. Stone slaps him in the face and Xyon calls for the bell.
Stone tries to escape through the ropes but Quinn grabs him and throws him up into the air some ten feet. Quinn then tosses Stone across the ring, and hits a running elbow in the corner. Quinn lifts Stone for a swinging Samoan drop, then a jackhammer for the win.
Joe Gacy says the world is supposed to be a good place. Take social media for example, a place that is supposed to be a marketplace for ideas, but it’s nothing but negativity. And you have someone like Harland, who people call a monster because he’s tall, bald and covered in tattoos. They judge him without knowing him. Well together they will change the world.
Elektra Lopez is walking backstage with Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza and they run into Xyon Quinn. Lopex says she didn’t know he had that side to him. Quinn says he has a lot of sides and Lopez bites her sunglasses and says she could do a lot with him.
We start with O’Reilly and Wilde, who lock-up and struggle for control. O’Reilly grabs a headscissors but Wilde escapes, then Kyle grabs a side headlock. Mendoza tags in and leapfrogs O’Reilly but gets caught with an armbar. Raul gets to the ropes to get away and O’Reilly kicks him to the corner to tag Wagoner. Von slams Mendoza down by the gut a few times.
Mendoza leaps over Wagoner but then gets caught and thrown with a fallaway slam. O’Reilly tags in and performs a double-team move before attacking the arm of Mendoza. Wagoner tags in again and they land a flurry of attacks in the corner until Mendoza kicks Wagoner into O’Reilly and tags Wilde. Wagoner takes them both down with elbows and a double suplex.
Back live and Wagoner fights up froma headlock and slings Wilde off. O’Reilly and Mendoza get the tags and Kyle hits a kitchen sink knee, boots Wilde in the corner, then lands a flurry of kicks to Mendoza. Elektra Lopez gets on the apron and distracts O’Reilly, allowing Mendoza to knee him in the back. Legado hit a series of clotheslines and tags in the corner. Wagoner is knocked off the apron and Wilde hits a huge springboard senton for a near-fall.
O’Reilly kicks Wilde from the corner and sends Mendoza over the ropes. Wagoner gets the tag and clotheslines them both, then hits a reverse STO for a two-count. Wilde counters Wagoner, but then gets caught with an Angle Slam. O’Reilly tags in for a penalty kick and covers but Mendoza breaks it up. O’Reilly sends him back out and tags Wagoner. Mendoza intercepts O’Reilly and Wilde rolls-up Wagoner for the win!
Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams are backstage. Hayes says tonight they’re not doing a Scooby-Doo show like last week. Andre Chase appears and they’re shocked to see him alive after he was captured by zombies. Chase says they had his back last week, so tonight he has theirs.
We’re back in the poker room and Duke Hudson is angry because Cameron Grimes is winning and having success with a lady too. Grimes calls a hand and thinks he’s beat but he has a flush and wins again. They whittle the players down to just them and Hudson says Grimes can’t beat him at poker, and couldn’t beat him in real life. Grimes says we’ll see.
Andre Chase comes to the ring and says he’s not the kind of man who responds to baseless rumours. But he was told people on social media are calling him a coward and he would normally be angry, but this is a teachable moment. He fears nothing and the only thing that should be feared is him. So if anyone in the back wans a PhD in getting their ass kicked, they should come out now and earn their degree.
The match gets underway and Breakker catches a punch, then knocks Chase out of the ring. Bron attacks Chase on the outside before rolling him back in. Chase takes advantage of Breakker coming through the ropes and grabs a front facelock, then delivers some knees. Breakker connects with some shoulder tackles, then a military press into a powerslam for the win.
After the match Breakker gets a microphone. He says he failed last week, the biggest match of his career. Ciampa set trap-after-trap and he fell for all of them. Ciampa took advantage of his inexperience and it’s only fair he calls Ciampa the man in NXT. But nothing pisses him off more than losing. So if Ciampa thinks it’s over he’s wrong, because he’ll earn another shot at the title and win it, or die trying.
Imperium is interviewed backstage. Barthel says they’ve earned the NXT Tag Team Titles after years of incredible performances. Aichner says they refuse to comply to American ideals. Gigi Dolan and Jacy Jayne appear and say they look really good with their new NXT Titles, as do they themselves. They say they have a six-women tag match next week and Imperium should watch. They leave and Barthel says the mat is sacred, but America has some benefits.
It’s time for another episode of Lashing Out with Lash Legend. She talks a little about Halloween Havoc and the costumes before bringing Tony D’Angelo onto the show. She accuses Tony of kidnapping her producer, Mark, but Tony denies. Lash then brings Mark onto the show to try and surprise Tony, but he plays along. Tony casually reveals he knows where Mark lives and how many kids he has, while making him apologise for hurting his reputation. Tony says his goal has always been to make as much money as possible while hurting a few people along the way. D’Angelo calls-out a few Superstars, then gives Lash some money and walks off.
The match begins and Solo drills Jeet with some knees and headbutts, then kicks him into the corner and connects with an uppercut. Jeet fires back but gets whipped to the corner and dropped with a back elbow. Sikoa hits a hip attack, then a headkick. Solo hits an Uso splash for the win.
Brooks Jensen and Josh Briggs are shown cooking steaks on their individual BBQ’s with their own friends, but they’re finishing each other’s sentences in a way that shows they’re quite different people.
LA Knight is on commentary for this one. The match gets underway and Waller ducks and dodges Boa’s punches, but gets backed into the corner and kicked. Boa stomps on Grayson, hits a snapmare and some kicks to the back, then grabs a submission. Waller fights up and goes to the middle rope but Knight causes a distraction and Boa attacks him for the win.
We’re back in the poker room for the final showdown and the last hand of the night. Grimes suckers Hudson into going all-in, then he calls and wins with a full house. Grimes saunters off with the party and Hudson flips the table.
NXT Champion, Tommaso Ciampa, makes his way to the ring. Ciampa says Halloween Havoc was a changing of the guard in NXT. We saw new, exciting young Champion’s across the board. The only problem is nobody told old man Ciampa, and he proved that he is the God of NXT. With Goldie he has a target on his back, and this is usually when someone would come out and challenge him.
On cue, out comes Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams. Hayes says he is that guy. He’s the one who has to come out and put Ciampa in line. It’s all about the new school and he’s the leader of it. So as long as he’s on NXT, Ciampa is going to take a backseat to him. Ciampa says Mello almost had him but then he looked in his eyes and he knows he doesn’t believe a word he’s saying. But if he wants to prove himself, if he’s feeling froggy, he should jump.
Trick gets in between but Ciampa drops him with a right hand. Ciampa holds the NXT Championship up and stares Hayes down. Ciampa makes his way up the ramp but Johnny Gargano’s music hits and he walks out. Ciampa cluches Goldie tight and Gargano stops to stare at him on the ramp. Gargano will be facing Hayes and Trick after the break.
We kick things off with Hayes and Lumis, and Dexter crawls towards him, so Trick tags in and kicks him. Lumis whips Trick to the ropes and hits a Thesz Press with punches, then tags Gargano for a double axe handle. Lumis then tags in and jumps off the ropes but doesn’t do an axe handle, instead looks at Johnny and uppercuts Trick.
Hayes tags in and looks for a pump kick but Lumis catches it and drags him to the corner and tags Johnny. They shove each other and exchange lots of counters until Gargano hits a spear through the ropes. Johnny chops Carmelo and tags Lumis again, so the duo can hit a double hip toss and dropkick, taking out Trick as well. Gargano crawls along the ground with Lumis to scare Trick and Hayes.
Back live and Gargano sends Hayes over the ropes to the floor and tries to make the tag. Trick grabs him but Gargano hits an enziguiri. He looks for the tag but Hayes pulls Dexter off the apron. Hayes and Williams then team to hit a springboard leg drop for a two-count. Carmelo beats Johnny into their corner and tags Trick to continue the offence. Lumis gets the hot tag and lands some lariats to Hayes along with a bulldog, then sends Williams over the ropes.
Dexter hits a backdrop, kips-up, and lands a leg drop. Dexter hits a rope-assisted suplex for a near-fall, then Hayes counters a back drop and tags Trick. Gargano tags in and exchanges with Trick, then catches a kick from Mello and uses it to attack Williams. Gargano and Lumis team to hit uppercuts and superkicks, then Lumis comes off the top with an elbow drop for a near-fall thanks to Hayes breaking it up.
Carmelo and Gargano tag in and slowly come face-to-face and exchange blows. Trick flips over Gargano and kicks him but Johnny connects with a massive clothesline and both men are down. Lumis tags in and hits The Silence, then Gargano knocks Trick off the apron. The referee is distracted with Gargano, allowing Trick to hit Lumis with a shoe. Gargano dives onto Trick and Hayes follows-up with a top-rope Fame-Asser to Lumis for the win.
That’s it for this week’s NXT, let us know what you thought of the show and we’ll see you back here tomorrow night for AEW Dynamite. Until next time, stay safe.
