We’re running out of hour long shows around here with just two weeks to go before the big move to USA. Since NXT likes to cover a lot of things, we’re getting one more NXT Title match out of the old format as Adam Cole defends against Breakout Tournament winner Jordan Myles. Let’s get to it.
We open with a quick recap of the Breakout Tournament and Myles challenging Cole.
Breezango vs. Matt Martel/Chase Parker
Breezango has the full on Fashion Police gear and entrance here and Martel/Parker are better known as 3.0. Martel takes Fandango over to the corner for the tag to Parker but a hip swivel gets Fandango out of a sunset flip attempt. Breeze comes in for a snap suplex as we hear about Nigel possibly getting a fashion ticket. Breeze has a rest over the corner, where he nods to a question of “YOU THINK YOU’RE FUNNY???”
It’s back to Martel, who sends Breeze hard into the corner to set up an armbar. That doesn’t last long and it’s quickly off to Fandango for the chopping. Everything breaks down and the Fashion Faux Pas (Backstabber/slingshot elbow combination) finishes Martel at 4:06.
Result: Breezango b. Matt Martel/Chase Parker – Fashion Faux Paus to Martel (4:06)
Myles arrives with Keith Lee and says he’s a bit nervous. Lee says he’s got this.
We cut to the other part of the parking lot where Io Shirai is attacking Candice LeRae with a kendo stick.
Cameron Grimes is annoyed at not winning the Breakout Tournament. All he wanted was to come in and go straight to the top but now he’s at the very bottom. His goal is to get back to the top and be the champion. He said a lot of those lines several times
Velveteen Dream vs. Kona Reeves
Non-title. They run the ropes to start with Reeves leapfrogging him a few times before turning into a dropkick. Reeves gets in his own kick to the face and knocks Dream down into the ropes. That’s it for Dream getting beaten up though as he punches away and hits a top rope ax handle. Back to back superkicks set up the Dream Valley Driver for the pin at 4:00.
Result: Velveteen Dream b. Kona Reeves – Dream Valley Driver (4:00)
Post match here’s Roderick Strong on the screen to say Dream told him to get his attention. The camera pans back….and Dream’s couch is on fire.
We look back at Rhea Ripley returning last week and coming after Shayna Baszler and the Women’s Title. They meet next week but there is no word on it being a title match.
Taynara Conti vs. Bianca Belair
Conti goes straight at her to start but a cross armbreaker is countered with a deadlift. Belair runs her over with a shoulder but gets sent face first into the middle buckle. The chinlock goes on for a bit, followed by a bicycle kick for two on Belair. Some hard knees make it even worse for Belair and she gets pulled to the floor with something like a triangle choke over the ropes. Conti’s dive is caught in a fall away slam though and it’s a handspring moonsault for no cover. The KOD finishes Conti at 5:40.
Result: Bianca Belair b. Taynara Conti – KOD (5:04)
Johnny Gargano is back next week.
William Regal announced a triple threat match for the #1 contendership to the Women’s Title on September 18 with Bianca Belair vs. Io Shirai vs. Mia Yim.
NXT Title: Jordan Myles vs. Adam Cole
Cole is defending and headlocks Myles down to start with that cocky grin on his face. It works so well that Cole does it again but Myles reverses this one into a hammerlock. Back up and Myles hits a big dropkick, meaning it’s time to head outside. That means a whip into the barricade and Cole takes over back inside.
Another whip sends Myles throat first into the middle rope and it’s off to the figure four neck lock. Back up and Cole yells at how Myles doesn’t belong in the same ring as him. They slug it out with Myles getting the better of it and knocking Cole outside. A German suplex gives Myles two back inside but Cole’s Backstabber gets the same.
Cole grabs a Figure Four until Myles makes the rope, so it’s the brainbuster onto the knee for two. That leaves Cole befuddled so Myles sends him outside for the PK from the apron. One heck of a frog splash gets two on Cole but the Midnight Star hits knees. The Last Shot misses and Myles rolls him up for two so Cole superkicks him in the head a few times. Now the Last Shot can retain the title at 14:38.
Result: Adam Cole b. Jordan Myles – Last Shot (14:38)
Myles gets the big hero’s sendoff to end the show.
Breezango b. Chase Parker/Matt Martel – Fashion Faux Pas to Martel
Velveteen Dream b. Kona Reeves – Dream Valley Driver
