Also, how two Superstars will make history to become the first ever NXT Tag Team Champions. The final match in the tournament will be tonight's main event, as British Ambition takes on The Wyatt Family. But first, Divas action.
Summer Rae def. Paige
Paige had the upper hand for most of the match. Summer Rae got a few moves in but nothing to drastically shift momentum. Paige went for a Sunset Flip, but Summer escaped at 2. She quickly covered Paige's legs and stole the victory. Rae rolled out of the ring and smirked at Paige into the break.
We come back to see Alex Riley in Dusty Rhodes' office. He talks about how Graves attacked him a few weeks back after his match. He demanded a match against him so he can seek retribution. Dusty agreed with him and made it official for later on in the night. As Alex left the room, Sasha Banks entered. Dusty said she's just the person he was wanting to see. He said he's gotten word from her valentine that they want her to meet him in the ring later on tonight. They both smiled and Banks left, as the cameras went back to the ring.
Mason Ryan def. Aiden English
This was a complete squash. Ryan absolutely obliterated English, and won the match with a Jackhammer.
Graves vs Riley is up next. Dawson and Regal hype it up as it is coming up right after the break.
A-Ry's music hit and he got a big pop. But he only made it about halfway down the ramp before Graves attacked him from behind. He threw kicks, punches, and proceeded to throw him into the steel steps before finally rolling him inside.
Corey Graves def. Alex Riley
The match had finally started and Graves clearly had control. The crowd got behind Riley and he started to come back. A-Ry fought his way back into the match and took the advantage. The two went at it, back and forth. Riley Irish Whipped Graves and went for a Spinebuster. He lifted him up, but it was reversed into a devastating DDT. Corey quickly went after the legs and made Riley tap out with the 13th Step.
Graves wouldn't release the hold and once again, multiple referees had to break it up. Corey was escorted to the back as he stared Alex down with a wild look in his eye. The other refs eventually helped Riley to the back as he could hardly walk on his own.
Sasha Banks is now in the ring with a microphone. She announced that she knows her valentine wants to meet her tonight, and she wants them to come out now. She stood in the ring anticipating their arrival. Finally...
Dusty Rhodes' music hits and the crowd erupts. Sasha stands in shock as the crowd chants for Dusty. After a few moments, Rhodes begins to speak. He told Sasha that she's a beautiful young lady, but he's not her secret admirer. He's just out here to introduce the man that had been sending her the cards lately. And here he is!
Fandango heads down to the ring, dancing along the way. He offers Sasha a rose, then she smiles and accepts it. They dance in the ring, and the camera goes to the announce table. regal and Dawson talk about what just happened, and Regal jokingly mentions wanting to see if the guy can wrestle as good as he dances. Up next, we crown the first ever NXT Tag Team Champions!
British Ambition def. The Wyatt Family
The main event begins with Oliver Grey going against Luke Harper. Grey gets some shots in but the big man quickly takes him down. Oliver takes quite the beating until he finally slides under Harper and tags in Neville. Adrian comes in and starts lighting them up. Harper struggles to keep up with Adrian's fast-paced offense which leads to British Ambition taking control for a bit. As the match went on, Bray Wyatt left his rocking chair and went down to the ring for a better view. He made Harper and Rowan get out of the ring so he could yell at them and get them back into the match. But Grey and Neville both climbed the turnbuckles and leaped to take down the Wyatt Family into the final commercial break of the night. We come back and Wyatt is back in his rocking chair watching the match. The action goes back and forth continuously. Eventually Grey and Harper are both down. Oliver attempts to crawl to Neville for another tag, but Rowan runs in and tosses him out of the ring. He runs at Neville but receives a huge kick to the head. Neville waits for both men to get up and hits a Springboard Cross Body on them. Rowan rolls out of the ring. Wyatt is livid and gets up out of his chair. He heads down the ramp, but Bo Dallas comes out and attacks him from behind. Back in the ring, Adrian comes off the ropes and is met with a Big Boot to the face. Harper is looking to end the match. He looks at the stage for Bray's approval and notices he's gone. While his back is turned, Grey slides back in the ring and goes for a School Boy. 1...2...3! Neville and Grey are the first ever NXT Champions!
Rowan and Harper throw a fit outside the ring, as British Ambition celebrates their win. They eventually leave to go search for Bray. The cameras go backstage where Wyatt and Dallas are now brawling in the locker room. WWE Officials finally come in and try to split them up. Dusty Rhodes starts yelling for them to stop. After both men are held back, Dusty tells them if they wanna get their hands on each other, they can do it next week...in an Anything Goes, Falls Count Anywhere Match! Both men stare each other down, as Dawson reminds everyone to tune in next week for that match, and watch Big E Langston put his NXT Championship on the line against Conor O'Brian.
The opening video plays and we go to Tony Dawson and William Regal at the announce table. They talk about the huge card we have for tonight, featuring a Divas rematch from last week where Paige will face Summer Rae once again. Also a match made at the end of last weeks show, Bo Dallas versus Bray Wyatt in an Anything Goes, Falls Count Anywhere Match. And in the main event, Big E Langston defends his NXT Championship against Conor O'Brian. The Divas match will kickoff the show.
Paige def. Summer Rae
Paige made sure not to get caught in a roll up again this week. It didn't take long for her to hit the Paige Turner, which led to her picking up the win.
An interview from earlier, where Tony Dawson talked to Conor O'Brian is shown. O'Brian announced that he wants to prove to Langston that he is better than him and will beat him with the five count.
Richie Steamboat def. Leo Kruger
These two had a great match with a lot of action. While it was all going on, Kassius Ohno had joined Regal and Dawson on commentary. The two bickered back and forth nearly all match long. Eventually Ohno got upset and knocked Regal out of his chair. Kruger was distracted at what was going on at the announce table. He turned around and went for a Clothesline, but Steamboat reversed it and hit the Sling Blade for the win.
After Ohno was finally forced off of Regal and sent backstage, JR takes over and replaces him for the rest of the night. They hope to have an update on William Regal sometime tonight. But still to come, Big E Langston defends his NXT Championship against Conor O'Brian. And coming up next, Bo Dallas faces off with Bray Wyatt in an Anything Goes Match.
Another interview from earlier in the day is shown where Tony Dawson is standing next to the NXT Champion Big E Langston. Langston accepts Conor's challenge and the match will feature a five count. For all he cares the ref can count to twenty, because O'Brian's gonna be left unconscious after the Big Ending.
Bray Wyatt def. Bo Dallas
These two went straight at it and went back and forth. It didn't take long for the match to go to the outside though, as Bo pulled the ropes down when Wyatt charged at him. This is when things really started to get good. It started with a few chair shots which led to Dallas getting German Suplexed straight onto the chair. Bray went for a pin, but only got a 1 count. Dallas continued to take quite the beating for a bit, but still somehow managed to kick out of Wyatt's finishing maneuver onto the floor. The crowd cheered him on and he slowly started to make a come back. Bray went for a Lariat but it was ducked, and Bo Backdropped him onto a set of steel steps. Dallas goes for the cover but only gets a two. The fight finally went back into the ring where Wyatt ends up hitting the Reverse STO. Instead of going for the pin, he stared down Dallas until he started to get back up. As soon as he made it to his feet, he was knocked right back down with a huge Lariat. Bray pins him and picks up the win.
We go back to JR and Dawson who still don't have any news regarding William Regal. But they have been told Dusty Rhodes is trying to hunt down Kassius Ohno. They hype up the main event for the NXT Championship coming up next.
NXT Championship Big E Langston vs Conor O'Brian ended in a no contest
These two went toe to toe and beat the hell out of each other. It wasn't a very fast paced match, but a lot of big moves were hit and there were multiple near falls. Late into the match, Langston lifted O'Brian up for the Big Ending. He hits it and goes for the pin! But O'Brian gets the shoulder up at 4. Big E couldn't believe it. He got up and pulled his singlet straps down and hyped up the crowd. He waited for O'Brian to get up for another Big Ending. As soon as he lifted him up, Corey Graves is seen coming down to the ring. Langston hits the Big Ending and goes for the cover. The ref counts 1...2...3...4- and is pulled out of the ring. Graves throws him down to the floor and slides in the ring to start stomping on Langston as the bell sounds.
Graves threw kicks to the sides and his legs and went to put Langston in the 13th Step, but Big E pushed him off. He got back to his feet and Graves rolled out of the ring. He shouted at Langston and that said he's coming for the title as the show fades out.
Good first two shows. I like that you put the tag belts on Neville and Grey, they're a great team. I like how you're using Graves as well, but hopefully this isn't the end for Conor, because I think he has a great look and is very intense. I will be looking for the next show to be posted. Keep it up.
Dusty Rhodes comes down to the ring to talk about taking care of some business. He mentions things getting out of hand the past few weeks and brings up Kassius Ohno. He says his actions last week against Mr. Regal won't be tolerated. As he was about to suspend Ohno, William Regal stops him. Regal tells him that it takes a lot of nerve to do what Kassius did to him. He says Ohno deserves to be punished, but he wants to be the one to do it. Dusty says if that's what he wants, then he can have it. They'll face off next week. But now, it's time to talk about someone else who's been a little out of control lately. "Corey Graves, don't think for a second that you're gonna just get off easy after these stunts you've pulled lately. The first idea that came to my mind was throwing you the hell off my show. But that wouldn't have taught you much of a lesson now would it? So the next thing that came to mind was, how about I just let you take the biggest ass kicking of your life? If you truly deserve the NXT Championship like you think you do, then next week, you got a title match. But so does Conor O'Brian. It will be Corey Graves vs Conor O'Brian vs Big E Langston in a Triple Threat Match for the NXT Championship. The opening vignette shows and we go to commercial.
After the break, we go to William Regal and Tony Dawson. They announce tonight's main event will be a rematch for the NXT Tag Team Titles as British Ambition once again faces off with The Wyatt Family
Michael McGillicutty def. Heath Slater
This was a great fast paced match to start off the show. The crowd was behind McGillicutty from the beginning and cheered him on throughout. Slater got little to no offense in before McGillicutty hit the Perfectplex and got the 3 count.
The cameras go backstage where Big E is seen waiting for an interview. Before Renee Young can even finish her sentence, Langston takes a shot to the back with a steel chair. The cameras quickly turn to see that it's Corey Graves, and he just keeps smashing the chair onto Langston. WWE officials finally make it to the scene and push Graves away. They eventually get the chair away from him and Corey walks away smiling.
Kassius Ohno def. Richie Steamboat
Steamboat came in with the momentum of a win last week over Leo Kruger. But Ohno had something to prove. He worked on keeping Steamboat grounded and went for multiple submissions. Richie eventually fought back into the match and looked to finish Ohno off. He waited for Kassius to get back up. He charged at him and went for the Sling Blade but Ohno dodges it. Richie almost hits the ropes but stops himself. He quickly turns back around but gets knocked out with the Rolling Elbow.
After the match, Ohno heads up the ramp and approaches Regal. He starts running his mouth and Regal stands up and starts to take his jacket off. Kassius soon changes his mind and tells him to wait until next week. After Regal sits back down, a replay of Corey Graves attacking Langston earlier is shown. Dawson gets word that Big E didn't let the EMTs take a look at him. As soon as he could make it back to his feet, he took off to find Graves. They go on to hype up the Tag Team Championship Rematch coming up next.
British Ambition def. The Wyatt Family
Neville starts things off against against Rowan. He uses his speed to dodge a lot of Rowans attacks which soon aggravates him. Adrian hits him with a few stiff kicks and goes at the ropes. He bounces off the ropes and nails a Springboard Dropkick. British Ambition keep control for a bit into the match, but Bray Wyatt yells at Harper to get it together before he's tagged in. Luke finally comes in and takes out both Adrian and Oliver. Grey is now the legal man and Harper starts destroying him in the corner. Luke and Rowan both begin taking turns beating the crap out of Grey. The crowd tries getting behind him but he can't seem to get the tag. Rowan waited for Oliver to get up and he went for a Clothesline, but it's ducked! Grey dives out and tags in Neville. Neville quickly jumps up and hits a Springboard Clothesline on Rowan. He goes on to run at Harper and takes him off the apron with a Dropkick. Adrian turns around as Rowan gets back up and runs at him. He goes for a Flying Knee but Erick moves to the side. Rowan takes off toward Adrian in the corner, but Neville runs out of the way and rebounds off the ropes to hit a Hurricanrana. He climbs up to the top rope and signals for the end. He jumps up for the Corkscrew Shooting Star Press. He hits it perfectly and goes for the pin. 1..2..3! British Ambition successfully retain!
Neville and Grey celebrate their win as Wyatt pulls Harper and Rowan to the side in anger. He hits both of them in the face for losing and heads off the ramp without them. The final camera shots show Adrian and Oliver on the turnbuckles, holding up their titles.
I have some extra time so I started working on this a bit. I have the next show about halfway written and an outline of where I'am going with things. I added a poll to the first post you can vote on...If anyone actually reads this haha.
The show opens up with a video showing what has happened in recent weeks regarding the NXT Championship. With Graves injuring Alex Riley, the title match between Conor O'Brian and Big E Langston, Graves interrupting the title match, and attacking Langston from behind last week. When it ends, a screen is shown for tonight's Triple Threat Main Event for the NXT Championship. Afterwards, the NXT intro vignette is shown.
We go ringside where Tony Dawson is seen with Jim Ross at the announce table. Ross explains he's taking William Regal's spot for the night as he's scheduled to face Kassius Ohno later tonight. Dawson mentions the main event for tonight and says he interviewed Big E Langston earlier on in the day.
The clip shows Dawson catching up with Langston in the locker room. Big E says Graves is lucky he got away last week, but it only delayed the inevitable. Tonight Langston plans to break him in half and get his revenge for the attacks and screwing him over in the original title match.
Luke Harper def. Bo Dallas
Bo Dallas makes his first appearance since weeks ago in that brutal match with Bray Wyatt. Wyatt and Rowan accompanied Harper down to the ring. Dallas gets a little offense in the beginning of the match. Not for long though, as Harper soon overpowers him and throws him around the ring. Dallas tried to come back but it wasn't enough to put Harper away. Harper hits a Discus Clothesline that damn near takes Bo's head off, then gets the pin.
After the match, the rest of The Wyatt Family enter the ring. Bray stands over Bo and says "Come with me, brother." He lifts Dallas' body and dances around the ring with him before hitting his finisher on Bo.
After the break, we go backstage in a dark room with smoke rolling around. Conor O'Brian is seen and says his time has come. He's going to take what belongs to him after he obliterates Corey Graves and Langston to become the new NXT Champion. He laughs maniacally and disappears into the shadows.
A vignette of Kassius Ohno's run-ins with William Regal is shown. Dawson said he talked to Regal earlier and he's very focused on his match tonight, and plans to give Ohno the beating he deserves.
William Regal def. Kassius Ohno
Both men came to the ring very seriously. There was a long staredown before the bell finally rang. When the match began Ohno took off at Regal and started beating him down to the mat. Regal crawled to the ropes, but Ohno just started choking him with the bottom rope. He was almost DQ'd but let go right at 4. His attack continued for a few moments into the match. The crowd cheered Regal on to try and give him some momentum. Regal fought out of a Headlock and started taking it to Kassius. He did multiple Knee Lifts to Ohno's skull, before taking off to the ropes and going for the Knee Trembler. Kassius dodges and takes Regal out with a huge boot to the face. He quickly goes for the pin, but Regal somehow kicks out at two. Ohno is livid and gets back up to set up for the KO. Regal slowly tries to make it back to his feet, but Ohno loses his patience and goes to pick him up. Regal throws a European Uppercut out of nowhere and hits the Regal-Plex into the pin. 1..2.. Ohno kicks out! Both men are down for a bit, but Regal starts moving first and crawls toward the corner. Soon after Kassius makes it back to his feet. The referee is talking to Regal as he gets up, asking if he's alright - when Ohno runs into Regal from behind to go for a Roll-Up. But the referee takes a bump from Ohno's attempt, and is unable to count. Kassius gets up and goes after the ref, while Regal slyly gets out the Brass Knuckles. Ohno turns around and receives the Power of the Punch! Regal goes for the pin and the referee slowly counts to 3!
Regal gets a big pop from the crowd after the match. After he stands up, he stares at Ohno for a moment and the referee raises his hand. He celebrates his win into the break while the ref checks on Kassius.
We come back, preparing for the main event. A clip of Corey Gaves is shown where he says tonight is his night to prove to everyone that he deserves the spotlight, because he is the next NXT Champion. He's going to show his opponents why his knuckles tell them to Stay Down.
NXT Championship Corey Graves def. Big E Langston and Conor O'Brian
In what was an amazing main event, all three men gave it their all to capture the gold. As it began, Graves and O'Brian started double-teaming Langston. This went on until Graves thought Langston had enough, and he hit a Chop Block on Conor to take him down. He worked the legs until O'Brian finally pushed him away. As soon as he got up, Langston surprised him with a Running Body Block. He went to do the same to Graves, but Corey rolled out of the ring. Langston and O'Brian went at it for awhile until Graves came back in to get in some offense. Later in the match, Graves and Langston were both down. O'Brian dropped a few knees to Langston and signaled for The Fall of Man. But before he hit the ropes, he picked Graves up and dropped him on top of Langston. He ran to the ropes and came back, going for the Leg Drop. Graves moves, but Conor still hits Langston. Graves delivers a Running Dropkick to O'Brian's face and covered Langston. 1..2.. Big E throws him off! The crowd goes wild as Langston gets up and takes both men down with Clotheslines, then Running Body Blocks. O'Brian gets Clotheslined over the ropes and is sent to the outside. Langston pulls his straps down and calls for the Big Ending. He picks up Graves up and nails it! Big E starts to get up to go after Conor who is still outside the ring. But Conor gets the first shot in and sends Big E straight into the steel steps. Graves has now made it outside and pushes O'Brian into the turnbuckle post! He slides Conor back into the ring and goes after the legs. He locks in the 13th Step, and Conor screams in pain. He tries to crawl to the ropes, but can't quite make it. He starts to raise his hand to tap out, when Langston breaks it up to save the match. He attacks Graves and eventually throws him to the corner. He does a few Shoulder Blocks before sending Corey to the opposite corner. He runs and hits a huge Splash that wipes Graves off his feet. Afterwards he turns around and is taken down by O'Brian who hits a Diving Shoulder Tackle from the second rope. He delivers a few kicks and once again calls for the end. He rebounds off the ropes to hit The Fall of Man. It looks like O'Brian will be the new champion as he goes for the pin! 1..2....and he's pulled away by Graves, who quickly locks in the 13th Step again! Langston is down and can't break it this time, and Conor is nowhere near the ropes. Finally, he can't take it anymore and O'Brian taps out!
Corey Graves is announced as the new NXT Champion and is handed the belt! He gets on his knees and holds the belt up as the crowd boos him. He goes on to climb the turnbuckle and hold the belt up again. The camera zooms out to show him standing tall over both of his opponents as the show fades out.
