Welcome to Ringside News’ live play-by-play results coverage of WWE NXT Roadblock for March 8th. 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 mini NXT PPV comes less than three week from the Stand & Deliver show during WrestleMania weekend. As such it seems a little odd to have some of these big matches happen tonight, but hopefully that just means we can expect even bigger things in April. The main event tonight is the Triple Threat bout between Bron Breakker, Tommaso Ciampa, and Dolph Ziggler with the NXT Championship on the line. Which man do you think walks into Stand & Deliver as Champion?

Elsewhere tonight, Imperium will defend the NXT Tag Team Championships against the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic winners, The Creed Brothers; LA Knight will face Grayson Waller in a Last Man Standing Match; and the women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic rolls on with our two semi-final match-ups taking place.

And that’s the preview for tonight’s NXT Roadblock. 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 Roadblock is opening with some action as we head right into Dusty Cup tag team action. Toxic Attraction are sitting in the Toxic Lounge to watch this one play out.

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic


Cora Jade & Raquel Gonzalez Vs. Dakota Kai & Wendy Choo

The fans are, inexplicably, chanting for Wendy as the match begins and she takes Jade down. Cora fights up and jumps over her but Choo then lays down and tries to get a nap in, so jade tip-toes over and tags Raquel while the commentators whisper. Raquel tries to sneakily elbow drop Choo but Wendy rolls out of the way. Gonzalez picks Choo up on her shoulders and spins around and around to make her dizzy.

Jade tags in and beats Choo into the corner before Kai tags in and takes control. The camera goes back to the Toxic Lounge but now only Mandy Rose is there, Gigi and Jacy are missing. Kai drops Jade for a two-count, then her and Wendy make quick tags and stomp Jade down in the corner. Kai and Choo sweep Jade off her feet and Dakota kicks her in the head before Wendy lands an elbow drop.

Choo and Jade roll around the ring in a small package, both vying for the pinfall. Jade is dragged out by Kai and Wendy looks for a baseball slide but Jade avoids it. Kai teams with Choo to send Jade into the apron but then Raquel shows-up and Kai looks terrified. Suddenly Gigi and Jacy show-up from behind and hit Raquel with something in the leg. Choo gets Dakota back into the ring and Dakota is talking to herself on the floor.

*Commercial Break*

We’re back live and Gonzalez hasn’t made it back to the apron yet – during the break doctors told her to stop but she refused. Jade fights up from a submission and hits a sunset flip for a two-count. Jade wants to tag out but Raquel isn’t there. Choo tags in and Cora lands a flurry of clotheslines, an enziguiri, and a running kne in the corner, followed by another knee for a near-fall.

Kai tags back in and teams with Choo to hit a facebuster for a two-count. Jade drops Dakota and finally gets to tag Raquel, who runs in with clotheslines to both Kai and Choo. Raquel hits a one-leg body slam for a two-count. Kai counters Raquel to hit a backbreaker, then looks for the Kaio Kick but stops herself. After some arguing with herself, Kai hits the Kaio Kick and tags Choo. Wendy hits a splash and Kai follows-up with a double stomp off the top and they win!

Winners: Dakota Kai & Wendy Choo

Tommaso Ciampa cuts a promo backstage in which he says he’s a 3X NXT Champion but this one feels different. Maybe it’s because he feels that Dolph is trying to tear down everything he’s built, or maybe it’s because he’s got a new-found respect for Bron Breakker. This match is huge and means more than the NXT Championship, which is something he thought he’d never say. If he wins tonight he will go into Stand & Deliver as the main event, a feeling he’s had before and one he craves again. Never before has the gap between number one and number two been so substantial and make no mistake about it, he’s number one.

The camera’s rush outside the building where The Creed Brothers are down and writhing in pain with a couple of lead pipes lying nearby. Roderick Strong, Macolm Bivens, Ivy Nile and some referees run up and check on them. Their Tag Title match tonight seems in jeopardy.

*Commercial Break*

Tiffany Stratton Vs. Fallon Henley

The match gets underway with a lock-up and Henley grabs a wristlock. Stratton turns the tables but gets thrown off. Stratton counters an arm-drag but gets caught with a dropkick. Stratton drops Henley on the bottom rope and jumps on her for a two-count. Henley chops Tiffany and hits a backbreaker/clothesline combination.

Henley connects with a back elbow in the corner and wants a bulldog but Stratton catches her and throws her up for a Samoan drop. Smoke appears on the ramp and the referee and the wrestlers get distracted. Suddenly Sarray appears from behind Stratton and kicks her in the back. Henley then hits Stratton with a shining wizard for a shock win!

Winner: Fallon Henley

We’re back in Chase University for another lesson. Andre Chase tells his students that they let him down last week with a crappy entrance but it’s a teachable moment. He says Bodhi Hayward did a great job last week and took one for the team – Hayward thanks him and his eye is practically swollen shut. One of the other students says Bodhi’s eye is looking nasty and Chase flips out, telling im he’s not a doctor and swearing, then throws a basketball at him.

*Commercial Break*

We’re back with Trick Williams, Carmelo Hayes and their buddies in the barbershop. Hayes says he’s gone through just about everyone and it’s not easy making all of them relevant. Hayes says he has the gold and so he makes the rules. He’s been climbing the rungs to the top, so why not run it back to the beginning with a ladder match. Trick suggests a five-man match and his four opponents will need to qualify. Trick asks him to choose a safer match but Hayes says he’s going with a ladder match because he can and to prove he’s the greatest Champion ever.

It’s time for a rare episode of Lashing Out with Lash Legend. He guest tonight is Nikkita Lyons. Legend asks about Nikkita’s journey and says her father was a rockstar and her mother was a groupie, but was she everyone’s groupie. Lyons says her mother is a free spirit and she taught her not to judge others. Legend gets mad and says Lyons thinks she’s a big deal but the only reason she was trending was because of those butt implants. Lyons gets up and says she’s all women and they argue as the show ends.

Imperium are interviewe backstage and Marcel Barthel says there is no way they would attack The Creed Brothers, they’re more honourable than that. Aichner says the Creed’s talk a big game but clearly they weren’t ready tonight, just like they said. MSK walk-up and say if the spot is open they’ll be happy to take Imperiums titles tonight.

*Commercial Break*

Brooks and Jensen are celebrating with Henley backstage. Legado Del Fantasma walk past and Brooks and Jensen confront them, asking if they attacked The Creed Brothers in the parking lot. Santos and Co. deny it and remind Brooks and Jensen that they lost to the Creed’s in the Dusty Cup.

Last Man Standing

LA Knight Vs. Grayson Waller

LA Knight runs up the ramp and attacks Waller as he’s making his entrance. Knight lifts and drops Grayson onto the barricade, then runs him into the ring apron. Knight grabs a trash can from under the ring but Waller kicks him before he can use it. Knight reverses an Irish whip and sends Waller into the steel steps, then posts on them.

Knight gets Waller in the ring and hits a catapult to choke him on the ring ropes. Knight beats Grayson down in the corner with stomp after stomp, then connects with a running knee. The referee starts counting but Waller is up at the count of three. Waller counters Knight and hits a Stun Gun. Grayson delivers a few knees to the head and the referee begins the count. As Knight gets to a knee, Waller elbows him.

Knight sends Waller over the ropes but gets hit with a backbreaker on the ropes. Waller swiftly dives through the ropes to hit a rolling stunner and Knight is down. The referee counts but Knight gets to his feet using the ropes. Knight looks for a BFT but Waller counters and hits an elbow to the jaw. Waller goes to the top rope but Knight leaps up and hits a quick superplex and both men are down. Knight hits the BFT and the referee counts.

Knight goes between the ropes to grab Grayson but the wily Australian hits him in the head with a trash can. Waller grins and takes a trash can lid into the ring as we head to the break.

*Commercial Break*

We’re back live and they’ve fought their way up onto the platform above the crowd. Waller tries to toss Knight off but he gets countered and LA knocks him off into the abyss! Knight makes his way back down to the ring as the fans chant but then Sanga appears carrying Waller. Knight hits Sanga with a chair to the back but he no-sells it.

Waller and Sanga team to beat Knight down and Grayson has a pair of handcuffs. He looks to cuff Knight to the ring post but LA fights him off and cuffs Sanga to the post! Waller tries to beg for mercy but Knight clotheslines him down and whips him chest-first into the corner followed by a neckbreaker. Knight with a powerslam, then looks for the BFT but Waller rakes the eyes and bails from the ring.

Waller goes out of the ring and looks to hit the rolling stunner through the ropes again, but this time Knight catches him and throws him over the ropes through a table! The fans chant “holy $hit” as the referee counts. He gets to the count of nine and Waller is able to use the barricade to get himself up, then falls back down. Knight goes out and tees-off with right hands as the fans chant along.

Knight grabs a steel chair but Grayson begs for mercy. Knight says this is for all this time, but then drops the cair and kicks him in the face. Knight puts a trash can over Grayson’s head and whacks him with a steel chair. He then beats the trash can over-and-over with the chair, before turning his attention to Sanga and hitting him a half dozen times as well.

Knight removes the top off the annouce desk, then drags Waller around and aims to put him through the desk. Waller hits Knight across the head with a shoehorn or something akin, then puts Knight on the announce desk. Waller climbs to the top of the ropes and hits a flying elbow drop to put Knight through the desk! Both men are down and the referee starts his count. He reaches eight and Waller drags himself up using Sanga leaning on the ring post and Knight can’t make it.

Winner: Grayson Waller

Bron Breakker cuts a promo backstage in which he says he knows he’s the least experienced of the three tonight. He doesn’t have the accolades or the intelligence of the other two. But he’s the guy who shows up first, works the hardest, and leaves last. He looks at his NXT Championship and thinks about how many days he’s held it, who held it before him, and what it stands for. So it means everything to him to win tonight and walk into Stand & Deliver as NXT Champion.

*Commercial Break*

We see Tony D’Angelo in his cousin Mikey’s Italian restaurant. He says it’s high time NXT start running on his watch. NXT Stand & Deliver, the whole world will be watching, and they’re going to see the new Don of NXT.

It’s time for another semi-final match-up in the Dusty Cup. Mandy Rose is back in the Toxic Lounge to watch this one but she’s alone. Her butlers have been taken out and replaced by Malik Blade and Edris Enofe who provide her with wine and grapes.

Ray rolls to her corner and tags Shirai and Catanzaro attempts a headscissors but she lands on her feet. Kacy hits a Frankensteiner pin but Io kicks out. Catanzaro then hits a headscissors into a pin but again Io kicks out.

Mandy Rose has seemingly noticed her butlers have been replaced and she looks weirded-out by Enofe and Blade, who’re just staring and smiling.
