We’re back with another edition of the show that continues to exist. The Cruiserweight Title tournament is starting to come to a close and that means absolutely nothing around here, as tends to be the case. Hopefully we can get some good action around here, because it’s not like anything matters when it comes to stories. Let’s get to it.
Oney Lorcan/Danny Burch vs. Ever Rise
Burch and Martel lock up to start but a cheap shot from the apron lets Parker come in to hammer him down. A leg trip lets Burch take Parker over to the corner so Lorcan can get the tag. The rapid fire uppercuts set up the half crab that gave them the win on Wednesday but Martel sends Burch into them for the save this time.
Lorcan gets taken into the corner for the alternating beatdown, setting up the snapmare into the chinlock. That’s broken up and a running Blockbuster allows the tag to Burch so house can be cleaned. A headbutt rocks Martel but the Tower of London to Parker is broken up. Burch doesn’t mind as he Crossfaces Martel for the win at 5:45.
Result: Oney Lorcan/Danny Burch b. Ever Rise – Crossface to Martel (5:45)
We look back at NXT’s tournament matches.
We look back at Jack Gallagher eliminating Isaiah Scott from the tournament.
Isaiah Scott vs. Tyler Breeze
Breeze takes him down to start so Scott takes things into the corner. Scott misses a kick to the head and the frustration is setting in. He even slips going to the middle rope and Breeze dropkicks him to the floor. A hard whip sends Scott into the barricade and Breeze gets two off a suplex back inside. That’s enough for Scott to get fired up and he sends Breeze outside for a running stomp from the apron.
Back in and the rolling Downward Spiral gives Scott two but Breeze is right back with an enziguri for his own two. Scott spins him into a quick German suplex for two more and a neckbreaker staggers Breeze again. The Supermodel Kick gives Breeze a quick two but the Cheeky Nandos kick is broken up. Instead, Scott hit the Confidence Boost (inverted Iconoclasm) for the pin at 8:46.
Result: Isaiah Scott b. Tyler Breeze – Confidence Boost (8:46)
