It’s Tuesday night and that means a brand new episode of WWE NXT for December 7th, and Ringside News has you covered with live play-by-play results coverage. Start time for NXT is at 8:00 PM EST. Match-by-match highlights and results from the show will take place on this very page. Feel free to leave any reactions in the comment section below.

Tonight’s NXT will feature all of the fallout from Sunday night’s great WarGames PPV. However, the biggest talking point ahead of tonight’s show is the possibility of NXT losing two of its biggest stars: Johnny Gargano and Kyle O’Reilly. The prospect of O’Reilly leaving to join his Undisputed Era bretheren on the *ahem* black and gold show feels somewhat inevitable, but Gargano leaving is a much bigger loss. Where O’Reilly never felt right as a solo act, Gargano has been the heart and soul of NXT for many years. Tonight the rebel heart addresses the crowd in what could be an emotional farewell.

As for the rest of tonight’s show, Kyle O’Reilly will be facing Von Wagner in a steel cage match. Von Wagner tried to attack O’Reilly after they lost their match against Imperium on Sunday in a move that felt a little rushed, but if this is to be O’Reilly’s last match it could be a good one. Bron Breakker pinned Tommaso Ciampa to win the WarGames match for Team 2.0, so it stands to reason he’ll be eyeing another title shot soon. Meanwhile Cora Jade was the star of the women’s WarGames match, and perhaps she’ll be next in line for a shot against Mandy Rose!

That’s the preview for tonight’s NXT. Our live coverage will begin from 8PM right here. Let us know if you’re excited about any of it and remember to hit the refresh link below and enjoy the show!


NXT 2.0

This week’s NXT begins with a recap of what went down at WarGames on Sunday. We go live to the CWC and the cage is surrounding the ring. Out comes Von Wagner to the boos of the fans, but Kyle O’Reilly attacks him on the ramp! O’Reilly sends Wagner into the cell, then gets him in the ring so the referee can start the match.

Steel Cage

Kyle O’Reilly Vs. Von Wagner

The match gets underway and O’Reilly continues the assault. Wagner starts to make a comeback but O’Reilly shuts him down and drops a lot of knees on his back. O’Reilly backs him into the corner but Wagner shoves him back and drops him with a boot. Wagner hits a gutwrench suplex and O’Reilly rolls to the apron. Wagner squishes O’Reilly’s face against the cage with his boot.

Wagner wants a powerbomb but O’Reilly crawls through his legs and delivers some kicks. Wagner scoop slams O’Reilly, then lands a diving headbut for a two-count. Wagner grabs a bear hug and keeps Kyle grounded. O’Reilly delivers some elbows to break the hold, then some leg kicks. Wagner knocks O’Reilly back but Kyle drops him and both men are down.

Back live and Wagner is back in control of O’Reilly with another bear hug. O’Reilly fights free and lands more leg kicks but eats a headbutt. Wagner runs at him but gets side-stepped and hits the cage. O’Reilly unloads with forearms, kicks, and a big knee. Kyle slams Wagner against the cage over and over, then climbs onto the top rope and stomps him repeatedly. O’Reilly drags Wagner through the ropes and hits a DDT and goes into a guillotine.

Wagner can’t use the ropes so he stands up while holding Kyle and turns it into a suplex. Wagner hits a flying knee, then starts climbing the cage but O’Reilly climbs up alongside him. They exchange on the ropes but O’Reilly slams him into the cage and he falls off, then Kyle dives onto him with a knee to the neck for a near-fall. Wagner low-blows O’Reilly, then throws him into the cell a couple times and hits a spinning doulbe underhook suplex for the win.

Winner: Von Wagner

The fans boo Von Wagner loudly at the climax of the match. Wagner hangs Kyle in the tree of woe, then slams the cage door in his face a few times. He stands beside O’Reilly’s limp body and the fans chant “you still suck”.

Still to come tonight, Johnny Gargano will adress his future amidst rumours of him leaving WWE.

*Commercial Break*

Joe Gacy cuts a promo with Harland behind him. Gacy says they’re working to make NXT a more inclusive place and together they can change the world. He says people have always judged Harland based on his size but they don’t know the size of his heart. Next week Harland will make his in-ring debut and people will have to accept him.

Bron Breakker comes to the ring. He says Team Black & Gold is tough as nails and he has nothing but the utmost respect for them. However, Ciampa pinned him at Halloween Havoc and he pinned Ciampa at WarGames. That puts them at 1-1, so he wants a title shot once more. Instead of Ciampa, out comes Diamond Mine. Malcolm Bivens says he wants to congratulate Breakker and says he is the real deal. However he’s not the only man who was sucessful at WarGames; Roderick Strong wiped the cruiserweight division clean.

Bivens says the weight limit has been permanently lifted and Strong is ready to face the best of the best. Breakker says he’d better make a point or he’ll toss him into the fifth row. Bivens says Breakker has his sights set on Ciampa, but Roderick Strong is the Champion in WWE and he wants Breakker. So does he accept? Breakker says he’ll fight whoever he has to to get to Ciampa, so yes he accepts. Breakker shoves past Bivens and leaves.

*Commercial Break*

Diamond Mine Vs. Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen

Grizzled Young Veterans are on commentary and out come Imperium as the bell rings. Brutus attacks Jensen at the beginning and even sits on his back and pretends like he’s riding a bull.

Jensen gets back inside and slowly fights back against Julius. Both men make tags but the tag rope is gone and the referee won’t let Briggs tag in. Briggs is angry and there’s some confusion but Jensen rolls-up Brutus for the win!

Von Wagner is interviewed backstage and asked about what he did to O’Reilly. He asks “what did you think was going to happen?” He says O’Reilly is done and his time is now.

*Commercial Break*

Duke Hudson comes to the ring wearing a terrible fake blonde wig. He says you shouldn’t believe everything you read on the internet; he saw people say Cameron Grimes shaved him bald but he clearly has a full head of hair. Yeah he may have taken a bit off the top but he salvaged it, put some colour in, and he looks great. Duke starts saying Grimes is a failure and a disappointment but out comes Grimes. Hudson puts some headgear on as Cameron says he didn’t expect this from him.

We all saw him shave Duke’s head, yet here he is denying it. Grimes says he put him through a table, cut his hair, and embarassed him. But he still came out and faced him like a man. Duke can’t handle losing. Hudson says what Grimes did was illegal, he pulled his tights because he’s scum. Grimes says he knows what he is and where he’s from. And where he’s from they do things a little different. How about they do it again and this time it can be no holds barred. Duke accepts and tries to hit him but Grimes fights him off and he escapes with the wig attached.

Briggs and Jensen are celebrating backstage when Ikemen Jiro and Kushida appear and congratulate them. Grizzled Young Veterans appear and say they only won because of them.

We return to MSK’s journey to meet their shaman and it’s none other…than Matt Riddle! He says he’s been waiting for them for weeks and brings them inside so they can sit around some candles. He asks the two “stallions” what their issue is. Lee and Carter explain that they expected to start at the bottom and fight their way to the top but instead they won the Dusty Cup and became NXT Tag Team Champions.

MSK ask Riddle what happens when you achieve all your goals so qucikly? Is there anything left for them? Riddle says the journey is worth it and tells them MSK doesn’t need to change, they’re great as they are. They’ve been to the top and they’ve fallen together, but they can climb back up. Riddle says he’ll be with them every step of the way, so long as they share the goodies in their bag. Riddle opens the bag and the three of them start laughing and shouting “bro!”

Toxic Attraction is backstage. Rose says the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions have real business to take care of. And they’ll do it like real women, not like the other with their ratty hand-me-downs and stupid skateboards. She tells the announcers to stop drooling.

*Commercial Break*

She says they’re not running from anyone, so no matter who wants a shot, they can bring it and they’ll be waiting. They are Toxic Attraction and still the attraction.

Cora Jade comes out with her arm in a sling. She says she doesn’t know if Mandy remembers it, but she beat her two weeks ago. And she won at WarGames. So she figured she’d come and see if she wants to handle things face-to-face. Rose says Cora isn’t the one, but if she wants to get in the ring she can settle it. Raquel Gonzalez comes out with a chair in hand and Toxic Attraction high-tail it.

We get another video package of the daddy’s girl, Tiffany. She says her daddy paid for her to take gymnastics lessons and, of course, she made it to the Olympics. But her daddy said she was too good to be on a team so she changed her goals to get the one pice of gold that matters, the Women’s NXT Championship.

Tony D’Angelo is interviewed backstage and talks about his budding feud with Pete Dunne. Andre Chase interrupts him and syas if he’s listened to some of his lessons he’d have come out of WarGames as the star instead of Grayson Waller.

*Commercial Break*

The fans are chanting “Johnny wrestling” and give a standing ovation as an emotional Johnny Gargano makes his entrance for what seems to be the final time.

Gargano says Shawn Michaels told him he can go as long as he wants. The fans chant “please don’t go!” Gargano says this won’t be his most eloquent promo because he wants to live in the moment. If he has one regret for the past six years it’s that he didn’t enjoy it more. He always worried if his match was good enough, or if he was good enough because the fans deserve the very best.

Johnny says the fans have no idea what they’ve given him. The first time he was in this building as in 2015 was for a tryout and he was told he’d never be in NXT. But because of WIlliam Regal he was brought to Full Sail for a dark match against Apollo Crews, and becuase they chanted his name so loud they brought him back every week. This is all because of the fans. TakeOver main events, action figures, video games, all of it is because of the fans. They helped him live his dreams and he’s still a chubby, eight-year old wrestling fan inside.

Gargano say’s dealt with self-confidence issues his whole life but in the ring is the only place he’s ever felt special or important. He says [eople have asked why he’s stayed in NXT so long and it’s because he truly loves it. His family might be in Cleveland but so many of his family are backstage and he rhymes off a list of names. They’re his family and that won’t change. And he knows change can be scary but sometimes it has to happen.

Johnny wants to leave a message for them though; you’ll never fail if you bet on yourself. He doesn’t know what his future holds., he might do some stuff here and there and he isn’t sure. But he does know his most important job begins in February when he comes a dad. The fans chant “baby wrestling”. He thanks them and says the most important thing for him is to be the best dad he can be.

Suddenly Grayson Waller attacks Gargano from behind with a chair! He tosses Gargano out of the ring as the fans chant “@sshole”. Waller wraps the chair around Johnny’s head and slams him into the steel steps. He then removes the top of the announce desk and powerbombs Gargano through it! Waller gets in the camera and shouts “if you want views you watch Grayson Waller.” He says this isn’t Gargano’s house anymore, it’s his!

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.
