Since this is basically NXT Main Event, I’m running out of ways to say nice things about it. The show is much better than what we had for so long before, but you can only have so many positive things to say about a show that usually features a lower card match, a squash and two midcarders. It’s still fun and short though so let’s get to it.
Andre Chase vs. Malik Blade
The fans are behind Malik and seem happy when he takes Chase down in a hurry. Back up and Andre elbows him in the face as you can see the Chase University Student Section (complete with a flag). The chinlock keeps Blade down and some elbows to the head make it worse.
Now the fans are behind Malik but Chase wants a C-H-A-S-E, with a stomp between each letter. A neckbreaker gives Chase two and he kicks Blade in the face for daring to try a small package. The chinlock goes on again but Blade fights up with forearms and a dropkick. Blade’s high crossbody gets two but Chase hits him in the face and grabs a Downward Spiral for the pin at 6:03.
Result: Andre Chase b. Malik Blade – Downward Spiral (6:03)
Valentina Feroz vs. Indi Hartwell
Persia Pirotta is here with Hartwell. Feroz gets shouldered down to start and looks annoyed while Hartwell might not be taking this incredibly seriously. A hiptoss gives Hartwell two and she drops Feroz face first onto the top turnbuckle. Feroz snaps Hartwell’s arm across the top though and we hit the armbar.
Back up and Feroz avoids a kick in the corner and goes after Hartwell’s leg for a change. It’s right back to the arm though and an armbar has Hartwell in some trouble. That’s broken up as well so Hartwell comes back with the good arm. Feroz goes for the arm again but walks into a spinebuster (with Hartwell kissing the ring) for the pin at 4:52.
Result: Indi Hartwell b. Valentina Feroz – Spinebuster (4:52)
Draco Anthony vs. Roderick Strong
Non-title again and the rest of Diamond Mine is here to handle Strong’s introduction. This is Draco’s debut to make it more interesting. They trade arm control to start until Strong grinds away on a headlock. That’s broken up and a series of shoulders give Draco two, with Strong bailing to the floor. Back in and Strong stomps him down into the corner, setting up a backbreaker for his own two. The seated abdominal stretch has Draco fighting back up and a release suplex gets two on Strong. That’s enough for Strong, who hits a jumping knee for the pin at 4:47.
Result: Roderick Strong b. Draco Anthony – Jumping knee (4:47)
