Greetings and salutations! I am back taking over NXT for the week. After an incredible No Mercy PLE I am expecting a few fresh angles to start and a few angles to keep going. I am so interested to see how the dynamics between Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams continue. Will they set up a jealousy angle now that Williams is the one with the title? And how will Becky Lynch’s title reign on NXT continue? I hope we find all this out and more on this week’s TV so without further ado, let’s get to the action!

Becky Lynch Speaks…

Lynch shas the mic and starts things off by saying that she nor Tiffany Stratton are cleared to wrestle because they beat the piss out of each other. Lynch gives Stratton some credit and says that when she won the title, she said she wanted to elevate it. Lynch is now focused on Hallowwen Havoc.  Lyra Valkyria comes out and says that Lynch is why she became a wrestler.

Valkyria is about to challenge Lynch but Indi Hartwell is out! Hartwell walks to the ring and reminds Lynch that she never lost the title. Roxanne Perez is out and says she wants her title back. Lynch makes a match for later in the show. It will be a triple-threat match between Perez, Valkyria, and Hartwell where the winner gets a shot at Lynch’s title at Halloween Havoc Night 1.

Tyler Bate and Butch vs. Gallusm(Wolfgang and Mark Coffey )

Butch starts the match off but Wolfgang and Mark Coffey have full advantage of him. Joe Coffey seems happy from ringside. After a bit, Butch with an armbar on Wolfgang, followed by a stomp on his elbow. Butch with the tag to Bate. Butch and Bate each stomp both of Wolfgang’s elbows. Mark comes in the ring and his luck runs out as Bate and Butch work him over and get a double finger snap, followed by Wolfgang taking Bop’s. When we come from commercial, Gallus has control of the match again as they lay the boots to Bate. Bate manages to escape and gets the tag to Butch. Butch clears the ring and gets in Ten Beats of the Bodhren. Butch continues his hot streak as he dives onto Joe Coffey on the outside.

When we return from the break, we see Roxanne Perez stretching backstage

Highlights are shown of Trick Williams’ NXT North American Championship victory over Dominik Mysterio at No Mercy.

The New NXT Champion Speaks…

Dragunov says we can refer to him by many names, but especially the new NXT Champion. Dragunov has kind words for former champion, Carmelo Hayes. Dragunov said that he can barely stand, but he does stand. He promised he would fulfill his destiny, and he did. Dragunov says that his reign will be a symbol of incomparable passion and says that he will protect that promise with his life. Long live the Zsar!

Trick Williams is out and he immediately congratulates Dragunov. He says he’s not here because of Dragunov’s championship. He’s here because someone else won a title at No Mercy. Williams is the NEW NXT North American Champion. Williams credits Dragunov for pushing him to the next level. Dragunov tells Williams he is proud of him.

Carmelo Hayes is out and he tells Dragunov that he appreciates the kind words. Hayes asks Williams why he is thanking Dragunov because it was him telling WIlliams for years that he would be a champion. Hayes tells Williams that winning the title is one thing; defending it is another.

Williams and Dragunov ask Hayes what he meant by that?  Dragunov tells Hayes that this is a conversation between champions. Dragunov tells Hayes to see him when he’s ready. Hayes turns to Williams and tells him if he wants to follow in his footsteps, Williams needs to focus on Dominik tonight.

Dominik is out and he said he promised Mami he would bring his title back home. Hayes tells Williams he will be in his corner if The Judgement Day gets involved tonight. Dominik asks Williams how long he will be in Hayes’ shadow. Williams tells Hayes that he won the title alone; he’ll defend it alone.

Breakker asks Hayes where Trick was when he lost. Breakker says he wasn’t at Gorilla waiting to give him a hug. Breakker reminds Hayes that he had to go find him somewhere because he was being selfish.
