It’s Tuesday night and that means a brand new episode of WWE NXT for May 31st, 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.
This Saturday brings us the NXT: In Your House event, and tonight serves as the final build-up. Most interestingly, this Saturday will see the final of the Women’s Breakout Tournament between Roxanne Perez and Tiffany Stratton. Nikkita Lyons was the sure-fire favourite to win the tournament but she got injured and Stratton took her place, but it’s anyones guess now. So let us know who you think will be the first-ever winner!
Toxic Attraction will have a sit-down with Wendy Choo, Kayden Carter and Katana Chance. Cameron Grimes will defend his North American Championship against Carmelo Hayes on Saturday, but tonight he goes head-to-head with the man he says is better than Hayes: Nathan Frazer. And the only other announced match tonight will see Cora Jade face Elektra Lopez. That said, we suspect we’ll get more from Bron Breakker and Joe Gacy, The Creed Brothers, and more.
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!
The show opens with Diamond Mine backstage. Roderick Strong and Damon Kemp are heading out to face Pretty Deadly and Strong tells The Creed Brothers to stay in the back. Julius Creed looks for a hand slap and Strong walks off.
Strong starts against Elton Prince and one half of the Tag Team Champions takes control early on. The fans chant “pretty ugly” as Prince stomps Strong and makes a tag to Wilson. Strong is backed into the corner but he fires back with some chops and catches him with a heel kick. Strong drops Wilson again and he crawls to his corner.
Kemp and Prince get the tags and Damon shoots for a takedown but Elton shrugs him off. Damon complains to Roderick, who slaps him across the face. Kemp rushes and tackles Prince, then suplexes him and hits a flying shoulder tackle. Kemp is all fired-up and hits an exploder suplex before grabbing a bulldog choke. Kemp drags Elton to the corner and tags Strong.
Strong with chops to Elton in the corner but Prince with a cheap shot to turn the tables and beat Strong down in the corner. Kit gets the tag and he takes Strong out of the ring and runs him into the ring apron. Back inside, Wilson throttles Strong with right hands, then tags Prince and they double-team him in the corner. Kemp tags back in and hits a series of suplexes on Wilson, then he and Roderick hit stereo backbreakers to Pretty Deadly, who roll out.
We’re back live and Kemp is being held down by Wilson. Prince tags in as Kemp fights back and makes the tag. Strong lands some clotheslines and a backbreaker, followed by a gustbuster. Wilson rushes in and he eats a backbreaker as well, then Strong looks for a Boston crab but Elton stops him. Strong chops both men, then throws Wilson into Prince.
Strong is in control but the numbers get the better of him and he’s sent to the corner. The referee gets distracted and Wilson tries to hit Strong with the Tag Team Title belt but Julius Creed appears and shoves Strong out of the way. Strong then looks for the Stronghold but gets countered and Pretty Deadly hit Spilled Milk for the win.
Cameron Grimes is backstage and Solo Sikoa tells him he’d better beat Carmelo Hayes on Saturday so they can have their match-up. Duke Hudson walks-up and says why does Sikoa think he’s next in line? Sikoa says if he needs to beat Hudson to prove he’s next, then he’ll be happy to do it tonight.
Earlier today Grayson Waller was berating a bunch of random people while bragging about Tiffany Stratton and how they could learn a little something from her. Josh Briggs walks up and says if Waller wants to impress everyone, how about he prove how much of an ass kicking he can take tonight? Waller says he can’t wait.
Tony D’Angelo, Troy “Two Dimes” Donovan, and Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo met with Legado Del Fantasma earlier today on a yacht. Escobar asks what he wants from this meeting. D’Angelo says they both knew this would end in a turf war. Escobar walks around in his cheap suits thinking he’s better than anyone but he doesn’t respect him and if he was dying of thrist he’d walk on past.
Escobar says he expected nothing more from a snake, he knows a cobra when he sees one. But out here in the jungle, he’s a python and they eat cobras. Elektra Lopez says Santos already beat Tony, so what’s in it for them to run it back? D’Angelo says the sun shines on a dog’s ass at least once a day, and if you watch the match back, Santos cheated. Escobar laughs and says a win is a win. He’s going to need a good offer.
Tony says a six-man tag team match at In Your House. If they win, Legado joins the D’Angelo family, and if Legado win they’ll join them. Lopez asks why Tony would make a move he can’t afford to lose. D’Angelo says true dons make moves that others can’t even see. He says that, after Saturday, people will be talking about how the D’Angelo family took over NXT and hired a few more goons. They shake on it and Escobar tells him to get off his boat.
The match gets underway and Lopex uses her size and strength difference to take control. She beats Lopez against the ropes and takes her down and pulls her by the hair. Jade counters a body slam and punches Lopez into the corner. Lopez avoids a running knee and hits a chop block. Elektra drags Cora back and hits a basement dropkick for a two-count. Lopez applies a modified ankle lock but releases and slams her head into the mat a few times.
Jade sends her out of the ring and when Lopez comes back she lands some right hands. Jade with a headscissors and a step-up knee, followed by a rope-assisted double stomp to the back. Lopez catches Jade with a powerbomb and pins but Cora grabs the bottom rope. Jade rolls to the apron and Lopez grabs her by the hair and drags her to the corner. Jade kicks her away and goes to the top rope for a senton and the win!
Wes Lee is backstage for an interview and he says he’s been waiting to face Xyon Quinn for weeks and he’s finally clear. Lee says he should probably rest after getting beat by Sanga last week but as long as he has air in his lungs he will keep fightng. Sanga walks-up and says Lee should fight Quinn the way he fought him last week. He says Lee isn’t a giant but he has a giant heart.
Lee rushes across the ring and jumps at Quinn who tries to catch him but they tumble because of the momentum. Quinn grabs Lee by the thraot and throws him but Lee lands on his feet. Lee goes to the apron and attempts a sunset flip but can’t get Quinn down. Xyon lifts Lee up and suplexes him onto the top rope, then slingshots him across the ring.
Quinn stomps Lee on the mat and tries to pull his arm out of the socket. Quinn whips Lee to the corner and hits an elbow, then body slams him. Lee fights back and looks for a springboard moonsault but Xyon catches him on his shoulder and lawn darts him into the middle buckle. Quinn looks for a running forearm but Lee rolls him up and wins!
Diamond Mine are backstage and Strong is yelling at them for not staying in the back. Ivy Nile says Julius took the shot with the title belt that was meant for Roddy. Julius says yeah, Diamond Mine is forever, right? Strong says that interference cost him the match. He says The Creed Brothers have to win on Saturday night, otherwise they’re out of Diamond Mine.
Joe Gacy and his druids are backstage. Gacy says Bron Breakker used to sit in his home as a child and watch his father’s Hall of Fame career. One of the best to ever get in the ring. During commercial breaks, Bron and his brother would brawl. And when Rick came home he allowed it to continue, seeing as him and his brother Scott used to fight all the time. Bron took his ferocity to the football pitch but he knew his aggression needed to live in the squared circle. Like father like son.
Gacy says Bron he quickly ascended to the top of the food chain and he’s a two-time NXT Champion. How did he come to learn all of this? He learned it from Rick Steiner when he had him captive. Men will tell you anything when they’re beaten down and broken. Gacy tells Breakker to allow the anger to consume him, get even with him, it’s not about beating him in a match, for his family’s sake, Bron needs to destroy him. And one way or the other, the NXT Championship is coming home with him.
Bron breakker was watching Gacy on a TC backstage. He says he’s already lost the title once, he’s not going to lose it to Gacy at In Your House. Lights start flashing and Gacy’s laugh fills the room. Breakker gets angry and yells “we can do this right now!” Breakker grabs the TV and goes to throw it but instead he sets it back down. He says he might be as predictable as Gacy says, but on Saturday he’s going to tear him apart.
It’s time for the Women’s Championship Summit. Wade Barret is in the ring with Toxic Attraction on one side of a table, Wendy Choo, Katana Chance and Kayden Carter on the other. Mandy starts to talk but Chance tells her to shut up and says we’ve had to listen to them for eight months. She’s sick of seeing them with the titles and on Saturday they’re going to knock them off the top of the mountain.
Gigi Dolan says they’ve heard it all before, there’s a long list of women that have come up against them and guess what? Most of them are long gone. Jacy Jayne says it’s about time Katana and Kayden actually made it to a premium live event. While Katana and Kayden were making cringe TikTok’s, going to festivals, and playing video games, Toxic Attraction were running the women’s division. Choo yells “sign the contract!” in a bored voice.
Carter says it’s real easy to be on top when you never defend the belts. She says her and Katana have been through everything and Katana is her best friend, her rock. She says Toxic Attraction seem to forget that they’re the only team to ever beat them and they’re going to do it again. Jayne mocks them by singing “the lollipop guild” and Chance tells her if she says it again she’ll shove her fist down her throat.
Mandy says the real attraction of In Your House is not Bron Breakker, Cameron Grimes, or anyone else, it’s her. Choo tells her to sign the contract again, and now the fans start chanting it. Mandy yells at the fans and says she’s the star and she will do everything she can to make sure the child that is Wendy Choo won’t represent the division. She asks the fans if thy really want the idiot in the cow onesie to hold the belt. She says she’s been Champion for over 200 days and it’s time people put some respect on her name.
Rose says Choo can play her games, run her mouth… Choo shoots a spitball at Rose. All Hell breaks loose and all six women start brawling. Katana and Kayden knock Gigi and Jacy out of the ring and dive over the ropes onto them. They get back inside and drop Rose as well, then pull the table over to the corner and put Rose on it. Choo goes up top and hits a sleeping splash to put Mandy through the table! Choo, Chance and Carter pose with the titles.
Ivy Nile is working out when Kiana James appears and asks her what she’s doing to do if The Creed Brothers lose, where will her allegiances lie? Nile says they will win but Kiama says The Creeds have only a 12% chance of winning. Nile smashes her against the locker and asks what her chances are, and she says they’re about the same as her boys and walks off.
The match starts with a lock-up and the fans are 100% behind Sikoa. Hudson forces Sikoa to the corner and rakes his face. Angered, Sikoa uppercuts Duke and slams him into the buckles. Solo lands some right hands but Duke hits him with a knee and sends him to the corner. Sikoa drops Hudson with a clothesline, then puts him down in the corner and looks for a hip attack but Duke rolls from the ring.
Hudson goes around and gets on the apron. Sikoa tries to hit him but Hudson shoulders him in the gut, then dives over the ropes and hits an impressive German suplex. Hudson lands some right hands and a back elbow, then hits a belly-to-bely. Solo tries to fight back but Hudson hits another belly-to-belly for a two-count before grabbing a chinlock.
Hudson wants a powerbomb but Sikoa runs him backwards into the buckles. Solo lands right hands a kick to the gut that sends him to the ropes and back, then hits a Samoan drop. Sikoa with a kick to the gut and drops him into the corner, then connects with the Rikishi hip attack. Sikoa drags Hudson towards the corner, sclaes the ropes, and hits the Uso splash for the pinfall.
Thea Hail, the young NXT signing that is going to college while training, is sitting at a table with three college hats on it. She says she’s decided on her college and she lifts the Oxford hat but put its back down. She then lifts a Notre Dame hat but sets it back down. She reveals she is officially joining Chase University!
The match gets underway and Briggs runs roughshod over Waller at the outset. Waller starts firing back and uses a cheap shot and his speed to get the better of the big man. The fans chant “you can’t wrestle” at Waller but he laughs at them. He drops Briggs and kicks him in the face, then does a line-dance to mock Briggs.
Robert Stone and Sofia Cromwell come walking down the ramp as Briggs starts to make a comeback and drops Waller with a big boot. Briggs lands some clotheslines and a shoulder tackle. Suddenly Von Wagner gets on the apron and causes a distraction, allowing Waller to hit the rolling Stunner for the win!
As soon as the match ends, Wagner gets in the ring and beats on briggs. He drags Briggs under the bottom rope and whips his arm into the ring post. Brooks Jensen and Fallon Henley run down and Wagner leaves with Stone and Cromwell.
The bell rings and they lock-uo with James running Nile backwards to the corner. Nile fights out and hits a fireman’s carry before grabbing a wristlock. James flips out and drills Ivy with a right hand. James grabs a submission and holds Nile on the mat for a minute. Ivy starts fighting back and hits a dropkick in the corner for a two-count.
James knocks Nile down into the corner and berates her, then lifts her up and clotheslines her right back down. More trash-talking from James. Nile hits her and looks for the reverse sleeper but James rolls her off. Nile with some mounted punches and kicks to the chest, followed by high crotch slam for the win.
When the match ends, Pretty Deadly come wlaking down the ramp and they ask Ivy the same question: what happens when Diamond Mine closes down? Beofre they get into the ring, Julius and Brutus appear and knock them off the apron and take their Tag Team Titles.
Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams are on commentary for this match-up. Grimes and Hayes lock-up and fly through a series of holds and counters before the standard stop and stare so the fans can cheer. Grimes with a shoulder tackle, Frazer with the drop-down, leap-frog, and dropkick. Frazer hits a headscissors and Griems rolls to the outside.
Frazer looks to dive out onto him but makes the mistake of turning his back and Grimes gets back in and elbows him. Grimes knocks Frazer into the corner but Nathan fires back and sends Grimes out of the ring. Again Frazer looks for a suicide dive but nobody’s home. Grimes gets on the apron and hits a running soccer kick to drop the kid.
We’re back live and both men knock each other down. They slowly get up and trade punches back-and-forth to the wooo’s of the crowd. Frazer connects with an enziguiri but Grimes fires back with a kick to the chest. Grimes wants a powerbomb but Frazer counters with a Frankensteiner for a near-fall. Grimes rolls out as the fans chant “fight forever”.
Frazer hits a suicide dive to Grimes, then gets him back inside. Carmelo Hayes is loving that this match is as difficult for Grimes as it is. Frazer goes to the top rope and looks for a moonsault but Grimes rolls out of the way. Cameron goes to the corner and signals “to the moon!” then hits the Cave-In and covers Nathan for the win.
As soon as the match ends, Trick Williams rushes into the ring and tries to attack Grimes but immediately gets sent over the ropes. Hayes comes in as well and trade hands with Grimes. Cameron whips him to the ropes and wants the Cave-in but Trick drags Hayes out of the ring and they leave as Grimes lifts the title.
