Time for some WarGames aftermath! NXT begins this week with a video package summarizing what went down at WarGames before we head to the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas for tonight’s episode of NXT.
Later in the night Mauro claims that there are two rings set up not because these matches were recorded prior to the WarGames PPV but rather because the Toyota Center is the home of WarGames and thus always has a two ring setup going on. I laughed. Continue reading “NXT (November 22, 2017)”
We start things off with a recap of Pete Dunne showing up on Raw last night and beating the fuck out of Enzo at the behest of General Manager, Kurt Angle. Enzo was none too pleased in the post-match interview they showed.
We get the opening video deal and then it’s off to Manchester, England for tonight’s episode of 205 Live. Our commentary team for the evening is, as usual, Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness. They spoil SmackDown and then run down the card for the evening before tossing it to the ring for the debut of…

After the opening credits we head to Full Sail where Mauro gives us a run down of the matches we’ll see tonight. In addition Drew McIntyre and Andrade “Cien” Almas will sign a contract to make their championship match at TakeOver: Houston. Prepare to see a table get flipped over!

We kick things off with highlights of Drew Gulak’s recent campaign against Akira Tozawa before the opening theme. From there we head to ringside where we are joined by Vic Joseph and Nigel McGuinness.
Vic promises that this is guaranteed to be the spookiest edition of 205 Live ever, which I guess is accurate since it’s the first Halloween themed episode the show has ever had. He and Nigel run down tonight’s card and then it’s time for action. Safe, sensible action…

We’re back with another action packed episode of NXT. How weird is it that going into this episode I knew what the majority of the matches were going to be because they hyped them up last week during the show? Zany isn’t it?

It’s time for the finals to the inaugural Mae Young Classic. It’s in Vegas so we’ve got that Big Fight Feel® in full effect as Renee Young welcomes us to the show while standing next to the trophy, which honestly looks like a piece of the Aggro Crag from Nickelodeon’s GUTS.

Time for some NXT. This week’s episode starts with a video package detailing Hideo Itami’s quest for respect and how it led to him butting heads with Kassius Ohno. These two will collide in a No DQ match tonight!
We get the opening video and then it’s off to Full Sail for wrestling action. Mauro Ranallo, Nigel McGuinness and Percy Watson are calling the action.

It’s time for the semi-finals of the Mae Young Classic! Two of the four women remaining will go on to face one another live in Las Vegas on September 12th. The other two will go back home…or maybe get offered NXT contracts. I don’t know.
Either way after the opening Mauro package, theme song, and introductions from JR and Lita we get a video package about Mercedes Martinez and Shayna Baszler.

As has become the routine, we start things off with a video package narrated by Mauro that highlights the road the eight quarter finalists have taken to get to this point before throwing it to JR and Lita at Full Sail. They run down the matches that will take place tonight and then we head to the ring for ring introductions as the action gets underway.

Are you ready for some more lady grappling? I hope so because it’s time for the second half of Round Two in the Mae Young Classic! This episode kicks off the same as every other episode with Mauro Ranallo doing voice overs as they show highlights of the women who will compete tonight and then it’s off to Full Sail where we are joined by JR and Lita.
