It’s Tuesday night and that means a brand new episode of WWE NXT for April 19th, 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 has a total of three matches announced ahead of time, the first of which sees Natalya wrestle to NXT for (I think) the first time since 2013. The B.O.A.T returned to NXT last week and took a shot at Cora Jade before putting the whole female roster on notice. Tonight she faces Tatum Paxley in what we expect will be a squash match.

The other matches tonight include Santos Escobar Vs. Carmelo Hayes, and the much anticipated showdown between Tiffany Stratton and NXT’s resident Power Ranger, Sarray. That’s all we know ahead of time but we expect to see more from Cameron Grimes, Bron Breakker, Joe Gacy, and the new NXT Tag Team Champions, Pretty Deadly.

And 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 show opens with the new NXT Tag Taem Champions, Pretty Deadly, making their way to the ring. While they’re on their way we see Bron Breakker entering the building.

Elton Prince says last week Pretty Deadly burst through the door of NXT and took the show by storm. Kit Wilson says they dominated NXT UK but they decided that scene was pretty drab, so they came to America and took the titles on their first night. And they beat the four best teams to do it. The Grizzled Young Veterans come out and they’re angry that they didn’t even get in the title match last week.

Gibson says the only reason Pretty Deadly had any success in NXT UK is because they left. Drake says they are sick of waiting at the back of the line, they’re taking what they want. Legado del Fantasma’s music hits and Elektra Lopez comes out talking but Wilde and Mendoza rush past her and attack the Veterans. Pretty Deadly get involved and they all just fight off into the ether.

Bron Breakker comes through the crowd and over the barricade. He gets in the ring and says Joe Gacy wants to know what he’s made of, well how about he come out with his father’s Hall of Fame ring and he’ll show him. Joe Gacy appears on the big screen and tells Breakker he’s not a hard man to find, so come get him and Breakker walks to the back.

*Commercial Break*

We see a video of Santos Escobar talking about Carmelo Hayes from his home. He says Hayes was never worthy of being the North American Championship and he needs to go to the back of the line. Trick Williams and Carmelo Hayes are backstage and Hayes says Escobar is in a league of his own but he’s crazy if he thinks he wasn’t worthy. He doesn’t go to the back of the line, he created the line! Hayes says tonight Santos becomes the first casualty of his return to the top.

Tiffany Stratton Vs. Sarray

The match gets underway and they get in each others faces and talk trash. Sarray swings, Stratton ducks and grabs a wrist but Sarray flips out and hits an arm-drag. Sarray catches Tiffany with a rolling trip and goes into a kneebar. Stratton fights free and hangs Sarray on the middle rope so she can hit a hip attack.

Stratton clubs Sarray and grabs a submission. Sarray fights up but Tiffany knocks her down and hits a springboard tope for a two-count. Stratton holds Sarray down but she starts to fight up and hits a dropkick to the knee, followed by a German suplex. Sarray goes to the middle rope and lands a double stomp, then puts Stratton down against the bottom rope and hits her hanging dropkick.

Stratton rolls out of the ring, so Sarray has to go out and bring her back in. Sarray grabs Stratton from behindbut she holds onto the ropes to prevent being suplexed, then headbutts Sarray off. Stratton hits a spinning Vader Bomb in the corner and scores the pinfall!

Winner: Tiffany Stratton

Grizzled Young Veterans are backstage when Bron Breakker barges through them looking for Joe Gacy. Breakker hears his father’s voice and follows it into the room where Gacy and Harland had him caged. The voice is coming from a phone on a chair inside the cage, which replays the end of the show two weeks ago. Breakker hits the chair with a pipe and storms off.

*Commercial Break*

Pretty Deadly are walking backstage, gloating, when they run into Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta. The two teams flirt a bit and Indi and Persia ask for a match, which Pretty Deadly are down for. Persia and Indi then reveal it’s really for their men, Duke Hudson and Dexter Lumis, and Pretty Deadly back off.

Grayson Waller is interviewed backstage and he says he had everyone believing he was injured. He even had little old ladies carrying his bags at the supermarket. He says he dropped the daedweight that was Sanga because he’s the reason they didn’t win last week. Andra Chase and Bodhi Hayward appear and argue with Waller for a moment until Sanga busts through a door. Waller runs off and Sanga chases him to the ring where Waller tells the referee to ring the bell for some reason.

Grayson Waller Vs. Sanga

The match starts and Sanga throws Waller across the ring four times and the fans are loving it. Waller hits a dropick to the knee but Sanga then drops him with a shoulder tackle. Sanga clubs the back of Waller against the ropes, then whips him hard into the corner. Waller kicks Sanga in the face and runs at him but gets caught with a sidewalk slam.

Sanga pulls Waller’s head back and berates him, then htis an elbow drop to the back. Sanga pins but Grayson grabs the bottom rope to break it. Sanga slams Waller, then waits for him to get up and wants a chokeslam but Waller rolls from the ring. Waller runs Sanga into the announce desk, then into the ring post. Waller gets Sanga into the ring and hits the rolling Stunner for the win!

Winner: Grayson Waller

Cora Jade cuts a promo in which she shows a picture of her with Natalya when she was a kid. She says you should never meet your idols but Natalya is everything she thought and more, a real legend. But she’s dead ass wrong about her and she’s going to kick her ass.

*Commercial Break*

We get a vignette for a new Superstar called Roxanne Perez, which is centered around her playing WWE games on PlayStation. Perez is interviewed backstage and she says she’s waited her whole life for this and it’s very surreal. Toxic Attraction appear and Mandy says Perez is probably very nervous but that’s normal for being around them. Mandy says she should breathe it all in because this is the closest she’s ever going to get. Jayne says Perez has a bad attitude, so how about they move her debut up to tonight?

Legado Del Fantasma Vs. Gibson & Drake

The Grizzled Young Veterans are apparently now just known as Gibson and Drake. As they standing in the runway Wilde and Cruz Del Toro (formerly Mendoza) come flying over the ropes onto them. Legado get Drake in the ring and hti a double team splash for a two-count. Gibson tags in and Wilde runs over both of them and hits a springboard arm-drag/headscissors.

Gibson is backed into the corner where he kicks Wilde in the face and tags Drake so they can hit a double-team atomic drop/clothesline. Drake & Gibson hit poetry in motion to knock Del Toro off the apron, then Gibson beats Wilde down. Del Toro gets the tag and hits a flurry of offence to Drake and Gibson.

Del Toro takes Drake to the top rope and doesn’t see Gibson blind tag in, then hits Drake with a super Frankensteiner. Gibson rushes in and attacks Del Toro as he pins Drake. Wilde comes in and hits a DDT to Drake, then leaps over the ropes onto Gibson. Legado isolate Drake in the ring and hit him with a high/low and score the pinfall.

Winners: Legado Del Fantasma

*Commercial Break*

Wes Lee is interviewed backstage. He says the last few weeks have been chaotic and rough. He has a lot of doubt and he feels lost. Xyon Quinn interrupts and says the real problem is that Lee doesn’t run it straight. Lee says Quinn sounds cool but he has no idea what that means but its not the time for a lecture. Quinn says he’s right, it’s time for a lesson. Lee says he may have a lot of doubt but he feels at home in the ring and facing Quinn in the ring may bring some familiarty to the chaos.

Suddenly two dudes in suits and fedoras appear at ringside and hit Santos with a crowbar, then put him back inside so Hayes can hit the top-rope Fame-Asser for the win.

Winner: Carmelo Hayes

Carmelo and Trick are in the ring after the match and Hayes says there’s nobody left in his way. So in two weeks at Spring Break-In, he’s going to become the 2X North American Champion. Cameron Grimes comes out and says Hayes sounds real confident but he wasn’t two weeks ago. Hayes says he’s still got some juice left, so how about they go at it right now. As Grimes gets in the ring, Solo Sikoa comes in from behind and attacks Hayes and Williams. The fans chant his name as Solo tells Grimes he’s got next.

Bron Breakker is wandering the halls, still searching for Joe Gacy. He enters a room full of mirrors and sees Gacy standing behind him but when he turns around he’s gone. Bron breaks a mirror and screams “where are you?!”

*Commercial Break*

Diamond Mine is backstage training and Malcolm Bivens is on the phone. Roderick Strong says the last few months has been rough for them but he refuses to stand by and let them become a joke. He’s the leader and if people don’t like his vision of Diamond Mine, they will become enemy.

Tony D’Angelo walks outside the arena and he’s asked if he had anything to do with the attack on Santos Escobar earlier tonight.

Winner: Xyon Quinn

Natalya is stopped backstage for an interview. She says Cora Jade loves to play the victim but last week wasn’t an attack, she was acting in self-defence. Every woman that blossoms in NXT comes up to the main roster and tries to use her as a stepping stone. Instead of waiting for Cora to come take her legs out from under her, she came to get ahead of it. Nikkia Lyons appears and says Natalya’s come down and thinks she’s hot stuff but as soon as she’s done with Lash Legend she’s coming for her. Natalya says when you’re on top everyone wants a piece but she’ll regret that when she’s in the Sharpshooter. Lyons says that’s fine because she’s very flexibile.

*Commercial Break*
