It’s Tuesday night and that means a brand new episode of WWE NXT for July 12th, 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.

Toxic Attraction has been the leading faction on NXT TV for the better part of a year, but last week their control of the brand took a dent when Roxanne Perez and Cora Jade took the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship from Gigi Dolan and Jacy Jayne. Tonight, Perez looks to topple the entire dynasty by defeating Mandy Rose and becoming the NXT Women’s Champion in the main event. Can she do it? Or will Rose continue her march towards one year as Champion?

As for the rest of NXT 2.0, we’ll see the fallout from last week’s Great American Bash-themed episode. Will Cameron Grimes seek a rematch with Bron Breakker, or will the Champion get a new number one contender? Carmelo Hayes is also in need of a challenger, although Grayson Waller might have a claim to a rematch. As for in-ring action, Giovanni Vinci will face Apollo Crews, and Solo Sikoa takes-on Von Wagner.

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

The camera rushes outside the arena where Roxanne Perez is down on the ground and Cora Jade is calling for help. Officials rush over to help and Jade is in a lot of pain.

Cora Jade is itnerviewed backstage. She sasys she doesn’t have an update on Roxanne Perez. She knew something like this would happen. It has Toxic Attraction written all over it, they’re scared that their reign of terror is coming to an end. She says she hopes Perez can pull through and compete tonight, because otherwise there will be Hell to pay.

*Commercial Break

Earlier today Tiffany Stratton was getting her nails done in a salon. She says she needed this manicure after that disgusting match with Wendy Choo at The Great American Bash. But, as always, she overcame that overgrown child. Now it’s time to leave candy-land behind and watch who wins the NXT Women’s Championship match.

Cameron Grimes makes his way to the ring looking depressed. Grimes says he wishes he had an excuse he could give the fans but he can’t. He came in the best shape of his life, he had the opportunities, he even hit the Cave-In, but the three-count never came. He learned you can do everything the right way and it still won’t be good enough. But that’s life. Last month he lost the North American Championship, then focused all of his attention on Bron Breakker and failed at that too. It seems he’s destined to be a loser. He thought he was going to the moon but he crashed into the sun.

J.D McDonagh comes out. He says he hates to kick a guy when he’s down. McDonagh says he saw the match last week and Grimes has nothing to be ashamed of, but how about they wrap-up this little pity party and he go mope in the back. He hates to break it to him but about sixty seconds after Grimes lost, he was old news. He fooled everyone when he came out last week, and everything changed when the Irish Ace walked through the door.

Grimes says we all know who he is but he’s not an Irish ass, he’s an Irish a$$hole. The fans start chanting the slur at McDonagh, then he headbutts Grimes! Cameron stumbles into the ropes and comes back with a right hand. Grimes swings for him again but McDonagh bails from the ring and they stare each other down.

Diamond Mine is backstage watching their match last week. Damon Kemp thanks The Creed Brothers for going through the footage with him and pointing out where he went wrong. Kemp says he’d love to run it back some day and the Creed’s agree. They leave and Roderick Strong walks in. He says he can’t believe what he just heard. He says Kemp is the reason they lost last week and he needs to be taught a lesson. Next week they’re going one-on-one.

*Commercial Break*

Grayson Waller is interviewed backstage. He says if last week’s match was based on points he was beating Carmelo Hayes until Wes Lee got involved. He ruined his moment. Waller knows Lee’s life sucks but it’s going to get worse.

Tatum Paxley Vs. Kayden Carter W/Katana Chance

They lock-up and Paxley takes Carter down via the arm. Carter fights up and drops Paxley, then connects with a springboard dropkick for a two-count.

Paxley reaches the ropes, thenr rolls-up Carter for the win!

Sanga is backstage watching a replay of him hitting a cannonball splash into the pool and drenching Duke Hudson. He laughs with two girls, then Hudson walks-up and throws the laptop. He says he spent all week getting the water out of his ears and he wants a piece of Sanga. The big man is more than happy to oblige.

*Commercial Break*

Brooks, Jensen, and Fallon are in a bar drinking. Pretty Deadly walk-in doing their best impression of Amerian cowboys. Brooks and Jensen say they’re in the wrong place and Pretty Deadly say unfortunately they’re not. They’re here for the UK Tag Team Titles. Briggs and Jensen say they’ll have a good old-fashioned bar fight but Fallon gets on the bar and yells that they’re not wrecking her bar. They can settle it in the ring next week and Pretty Deadly agree.

Sanga Vs. Duke Hudson

Hudson shoves Sanga but gets shoved right back and falls over. Duke rushes Sanga into the corner and tries to Irish whip him but can’t. Sanga splashes Hudson, hits snake eyes, then connects with a shoulder tackle and Hudson rolls from the ring. Duke pulls Sanga by the beard and punches him, then hits a chopblock.

Sanga starts fighting back and splashes Hudson in the corner, then hits a big sidewalk slam. Sanga adjusts his moutsache, then delivers an elbow drop.

Robert Stone, Sofia Cromwell, and Von Wagner are backstage. Stone says Solo Sikoa has no idea what he’s got himself into. Wagner could have been a professional baseball player but he chose football. He had an arm like a cannon and… Wagner tells him to shut up. he says it doesn’t matter if it’s on the field, on the street, or in the ring, he’s going to kick Sikoa’s ass. Solo is then shown getting ready and he says Wagner is a bad man, he knows that, but it’s put-up or shut-up time.

*Commercial Break*

Toxic Attraction is interviewed backstage and Mandy denies they attacked Roxanne Perez earlier today. Dolan says it would be a real shame if she couldn’t compete tonight, or for a while.

Hayes makes Trick join him to look out over the city and he says the two of them are like Kobe and Shaq, they’re the dream-team taking over NXT.

Nikkita Lyons is interviewed backstage. She says people keep suggesting she attacked Roxanne earlier today. Yeah, she thinks she would have won the Breakout Tournament if she hadn’t been injured, but she’s not the kind of woman that puts others down to build nherself up.
