Date: September 2, 2022
Location: Capitol Wrestling Center, Orlando, Florida
Commentators: Sudu Shah, Nigel McGuinness
We’re reaching another point where I am running out of ways to talk about this show. One of the only things of note is that Javier Bernal, a regular around here, is now on NXT as a more annoying version of himself. At least that gives me a reason to believe that we might be seeing some of these people on a bigger stage sooner rather than later. Let’s get to it.
Duke Hudson vs. Myles Borne
Hudson takes him down to start but spends too much time posing, allowing Borne to pull him down. With that not working for Borne, he grabs an armbar to put Hudson down instead. The armbar stays on Hudson’s arm but he catches Borne on the middle rope to take over. A loud chop in the corner sets up a shot to the ribs but Borne comes back with some dropkicks. The straps come down and Hudson’s high crossbody gets two. That’s too much for Hudson, who hits a big boot for the pin at 5:47.
Result: Duke Hudson b. Myles Borne – Big boot (5:47)
Dante Chen is ready for Xyon Quinn because he has Singapore in his corner.
Arianna Grace vs. Erica Yan
Grace armdrags her down to start but Yan comes back with a snapmare and does a little….gesture? That’s broken up and Grace gets her to the mat and stomps away. Yan’s rollup gets two but Grace kicks her to the mat and grabs an arm crank. Yan fights up and hits an atomic drop, setting up a facebuster. Grace gets sent into the corner though and it’s a Wasteland for the pin at 4:46.
Result: Arianna Grace b. Erica Yan – Wasteland (4:46)
Dante Chen vs. Xyon Quinn
Quinn starts fast and drops Chen face first onto the top turnbuckle and hits a backbreaker. A splash to the back gets two and Quinn whips him hard into the corner. The bearhug goes on for a bit, followed by Quinn picking him up for an even bigger bearhug. Chen fights back and hits a kick to the head for two but a Death Valley Driver cuts him down. The running punch finishes for Quinn at 5:55.
Result: Dante Chen b. Xyon Quinn – Running punch (5:55)
