There aren’t a ton of stories coming into tonight but the main event out of last week was Sami Zayn vs. Corey Graves being stopped to to Sami’s head injuries. Other than that we also might be building to Neville vs. Clay in the future which isn’t the worst idea for a first new opponent for Adrian. Let’s get to it.
We open with an In Memory graphic for Warrior.
There’s a new commentator named Rich Bocchini tonight. No idea if he’s a permanent replacement for Phillips or not.
Adam Rose vs. Danny Burch
The fans think the party entrance was awesome. Rose prances around the ring to start but gets knocked into the ropes. He leans back and keeps lifting his feet to stop the charging Danny before running him over with some shoulders. Rose cranks on the arm but gets dropped by a single right hand. Adam comes right back with something resembling a Bronco Buster and more prancing, followed by a middle rope elbow for the pin at 2:54. Albert dances post match.
Result: Adam Rose b. Danny Burch – Middle rope elbow (2:54)
We look back at Sami Zayn being injured last week. The referee says he was doing the responsible thing and stopped the match for Sami’s safety.
Corey Graves says that was just the beginning.
Sasha Banks vs. Bayley
Banks runs her over a few times for two each but Bayley comes back with rollups of her own. Sasha just goes off on her and hammers away before pounding on the back of Bayley’s head. She chokes away in the corner and stomps on Bayley for two. We hit a double arm choke for a bit but Bayley fights up and comes back with some forearms. A running clothesline sets up a middle rope elbow to the jaw for no cover. Sasha tries to fight back but walks into the Belly to Bayley for the pin at 3:12.
Result:Bayley b. Sasha Banks – Belly to Bayley (3:12)
Sylvester LeFort vs. Mojo Rawley
Rawley crushes him in the corner to start and hits a Rear View followed by Hyperdrive for the pin at 47 seconds. Now THIS is what Rawley should be doing.
Result: Mojo Rawley b. Sylvester LeFort – Hyperdrive (0:47)
Post match Brodus Clay comes out to powerbomb and splash LeFort. “Better than Batista!” Clay still wants Neville and thinks he’s earned a shot. He calls out Adrian again and here’s the champion to call Brodus out on his whining. They stare each other down but Brodus walks out.
Oliver Grey is back but Camacho cuts off his promo. He doesn’t like Adam Rose wanting to party all the time but Oliver cuts him off as well. Oliver wants a match against Camacho next week and it’s on.
We look at the NXT guys at Axxess.
Khali is here and gets a hug from Bayley. CJ Parker comes up and is really hoping Khali recycles. Khali shouts in Punjabi but Bayley translates: the big man wants a match next week.
Here’s Bo Dallas for a big announcement. He’s seen what the YES Movement has done so it’s time for the BO Movement to occupy NXT. The fans literally turn their backs on him and Dallas freaks out. “I GAVE YOU COOKIES!” He goes to ringside to yell before heading back in and falling to his knees in tears, saying this makes no sense. I could get behind a Bo Dallas that loses his mind.
We take a quick break to say Don’t Try This At Home and come back with Bo’s meltdown continuing. The fans want NO MORE BO and he weakly tries to turn it into Let’s Go Bo. Now it’s a Bo-Tista chant until JBL makes a rare appearance with a huge grin on his face. “Bo, your movement doesn’t have enough people to occupy a see saw.” He makes a match right now.
Justin Gabriel vs. Bo Dallas
They circle each other to start until Justin nails a few cross bodies. A rollup gets a close two and Dallas bails to the floor. The fans want cookies as Dallas comes back in with a headlock. Justin fights up and sends Bo back to the floor again but gets knocked off the top rope. A suplex sets up a cravate from Bo and he sends Justin hard into the corner.
Dallas levels him with a clothesline but gets sent into the corner as well to put both guys down. Gabriel fires off a series of hard strikes and gets two off a springboard cross body. Bo reverses a tilt-a-whirl slam into a reverse DDT for a close two and both guys are winded. A hard kick to the back puts Bo down but he avoids a top rope Lionsault. Justin comes right back with a small package for two but walks into a double arm DDT for the pin at 10:00.
Result:Bo Dallas b. Justin Gabriel – Double arm DDT (10:00)
Adam Rose b. Danny Burch – Middle rope elbow
Bayley b. Sasha Banks – Belly to Bayley
Mojo Rawley b. Sylvester LeFort – Hyperdrive
Bo Dallas b. Justin Gabriel – Double arm DDT
