MATT RIDDLE VS. KASSIUS OHNO
Matt Riddle holds zero appeal for me. I’d like to see Ohno smash his jaw. Wait… what the fuck was that? Did they just bury the hell out of Kassius Ohno? Well I guess it’s more putting Riddle over, Ohno will be fine but… ok. I really just hate the stoner “bro” thing. Still, I’ll admit that was a great way to fire up the crowd to start the show.

Adam Cole wants to make people fear NXT, and says Ricochet has his property. EC3 interrupts. It looks like we’re gonna get an EC3-Adam Cole match!

NXT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH: WAR RAIDERS VS. UNDISPUTED ERA (c)
I’ve been waiting for this. I think Undisputed Era is going to get disqualified somehow and keep the titles. I’m a huge War Raiders fan, so I’m hoping I’m wrong and we have new champions. However, I am rarely, rarely, RARELY wrong. About anything. Ever.

On a boring Sunday, let’s check out the live event action from Saturday.

IN-RING PROMO: TOMMASO CIAMPA
Ciampa calls out Velveteen Dream, and Dream comes out and cuts what sounds suspiciously like a face promo. Ciampa brutally says maybe Dream is just not… Tough Enough. That’s COLD. Dream says he’s more man than Ciampa can handle. Out comes… Nikki Cross?!? Hell yeah, give her a title shot! It probably has more to do with Aleister Black, but I want to see her wrestle these guys. The crowd launches into a “TRIPLE THREAT!” chant while Nikki plays with both men.

OPENING SEGMENT: WILLIAM REGAL & THE UNDISPUTED ERA
Kyle O’Reilly is afraid of War Raiders. His mommy probably told him a scary story about Vikings when she tucked him in last night. This is the kind of stuff Undisputed Era should be doing. I wouldn’t be surprised if they attack Regal here.

DAKOTA KAI & DEONNA PURRAZZO VS. ALIYAH & LACEY EVANS
Evans says she’s a lady but acts like a bitch. A mean, tough-as-nails bitch. Every time she gets hit, she just gets pissed and hits back twice as hard. When she tags out, she slowly climbs up over the top rope and back down onto the apron. It looked so uppity and bitchy, small things like that can have such a big effect on getting a character over. Things like that are why I selected her as one of my future champions.

PRISCILLA KELLY VS. DEONNA PURRAZZO
Kelly reminds me a lot of Ruby Riott in her look at personality. I am a fan of Purrazzo and I’d like to see what she can do, but she’s already going to be in tag team action NXT next week, so if Kelly impresses me here, I’d like to see her move on. I don’t know why they show Samoa Joe in the crowd, or what the hell he has to do with this tournament. Kelly smacks Purrazzo’s hand away at the start, so it’s clear who the heel is here.
