NXT General Manager William Regal ended Sunday’s TakeOver saying “it’s time for a change”. Regal is set to elaborate on that statement on tonight’s NXT.
Also set for tonight’s show...The Grizzled Young Veterans vs. Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatches in a Tornado Tag Match...and Kushida will hold a Cruiserweight Championship Open Challenge.
We’ve got a new match announced for Sunday’s Hell In A Cell pay per view - Alexa Bliss vs. Shayna Baszler.
Baszler did not appear on last night’s Raw...after her run-in with Lilly last Monday. But Nia Jax was there to challenge Bliss to a match.
Bliss beat Jax via disqualification...when Reginald interrupted Alexa’s cover after she hit Twisted Bliss. Alexa had a staredown with Reggie after the match...and Reggie appeared to be momentarily hypnotized.
Earlier, Alexa said she put Lilly in “timeout” for what she did last week...and also because WWE is going back on the road soon.
Eva Marie returned to Raw last night, but we did NOT get to see her in a match - despite WWE promoting Eva vs. Naomi earlier in the day. Instead, Piper Niven accompanied Eva to the ring and she fought Naomi. The commentary team didn’t sound like they knew who Piper is...despite her being part of NXT UK. Anyway, Piper made quick work of Naomi and pinned her...and then Eva Marie took the mic and announced herself as the winner of the match.
The main event between Drew McIntyre and AJ Styles ended in a no contest...as Bobby Lashley and Omos...and the Viking Raiders got involved. That led to a 6-Man Tag...which ended with McIntyre catching Lashley with a Claymore and pinning him...less than a week before their WWE Title match at Hell In A Cell.
Nikki Cross beat Charlotte Flair via countout...Charlotte spent a little too long jawing at Rhea Ripley at ringside...and lost track of the count.
Later, Ripley pinned Asuka with the Riptide. Charlotte and Ripley had a wild brawl after the match.
Team RK-Bro beat Kofi Kingston & Xavier Woods...
John Morrison pinned Jeff Hardy. After the match, Cedric Alexander came out to mock Hardy. That led to Hardy challenging Alexander right there...and saying he’d retire if he lost. Hardy pinned Alexander with the Swanton Bomb in about 3 minutes.
Elias and Jaxson Ryker had another match...and for the second straight week, Elias took a walk and a countout loss.
WWE released a YouTube exclusive match...that was held before Sunday’s TakeOver. Sarray & Zoey Stark beat Aliyah & Jessi Kamea.
(STINGER: New Japan)
Impact Wrestling’s X-Division Champion Josh Alexander will appear on Friday’s episode of New Japan Strong...in a match against Alex Coughlin.
New Japan’s Kizuna Road tour rolls on this morning.
Wednesday’s show has a “Chaos vs. Bullet Club” Elimination Tag Team Match in the main event. Hirooki Goto, Tomohiro Ishii, YOSHI-HASHI, SHO & YOH vs. EVIL, Yujiro Takehashi, Dick Togo, Taiji Ishimori & El Phantasmo.
Fred Rosser - who’s been a mainstay on Strong - announced Monday that he’s now signed with New Japan.
Tonight’s NWA Powerrr has a Triple Threat National Title Qualifier Match - Rosser vs. JTG vs. El Rudo - better known as Sam Adonis.
Tonight’s AEW Dark has The Acclaimed vs. Dark Order’s Colt Cabana & Alan 5” Angels...Sonny Kiss vs. Dante Martin...and Chaos Project vs. Billy & Colten Gunn..
Also, Wardlow is back in action...against Chandler Hopkins. Wardlow made quick work of Jason Hotch on last night’s Dark: Elevation.
QT Marshall & Aaron Solow beat Deonn Rusman & Joe Keys, who’s been a regular in Ring Of Honor recently.
Scorpio Sky submitted Alex Reynolds in the main event.
Also, Angelico submitted Mike Sydal with the Navarro Death Roll…and Julia Hart pinned Dani Jordyn.
Mexico’s fledgling Federacion Wrestling could be on the ropes. Several high-profile names are backing out of the promotion's first show, which is scheduled for Saturday.
Those names include Andrade El Idolo...who tweeted Monday “a good arrangement was not reached with this new company.”
Also, the members of La Faccion Ingobernable - Ring Of Honor Champion Rush, Dragon Lee, Kenny King and Bestia Del Ring. Rush cited “logistics problems” as the reason LFI will not be on the show.
HOT SAUCE Tracy Williams and Rhett Titus are still the Ring Of Honor Tag Team Champions. They beat the former champs Dragon Lee and Kenny King via disqualification on ROH’s weekend TV. The match was contested under Pure Rules...and when King broke up a pinfall, that caused the DQ.
Also on the show, Eli Isom beat Dak Draper in a first round match in the Survival Of The Fittest tournament. Dalton Castle was ringside for most of this match. When he got up to leave, it distracted Draper...and Isom hit his brainbuster for the pin.
