NXT Result and Reaction 04.29
Isaiah "Swerve" Scott defeated El Hijo Del Fantasma.
The first NXT match was a good one. Scott, upset from losing his first match, was determined to win this one. However, Fantasma, who debuted last week sought for his second consecutive win. Both superstars demonstrated their athleticism. While Scott maintained control of the match, Fantasma managed to fight back. Scott caught Fantasma with the crucifix to pin him.
During the post-match interview, Scott stated that he told everyone that he would win. He has all the respect in the world for Fantasma but needed this victory to stay on pace for the Cruiserweight title. "I won't be denied. When the game is on the line, I need that last shot to win the game, give the ball to Swerve."
Johnny Gargano and Dominik Dijakovic created a promo and targeted Gargano's remark as an insult. Next week, Dijakovic will challenge Johnny Gargano in a singles match.
Candice LeRae defeated Katy Catanzaro.
LeRae turned heel and is an entirely different superstar alongside her husband, Johnny Gargano. She changed her hair color and has new theme music. LeRae started with a win over Katy and will continue to dominate towards lesser mid-carders.
Newly Bro Show - by Byron Baxton
I would not have imagined that NXT would do such a segment called the Newly Bro Show. Many would think Vince McMahon may have something to do with this. I am waiting for the rumors to flow down the wrestling community. Matt Riddle wanted to know more about Timothy Thatcher. He guessed all the questions correctly until the Imperium began their assault. The new feud has already started, and we can expect a tag team championship match within a couple of weeks.
Velveteen Dream vs. Adam Cole next week for the NXT Championship.
Charlotte defeated Mia Yim.
Charlotte had a plan and that was to show all the women in the NXT that she is the Queen. That is why she chose Yim as her first opponent. After Charlotte's win, Io Shirai approached the Queen, ready for the battle next week.
Announcement - Finn Balor will be on NXT next week to address and find out who attacked him.
Dexter Lumis defeated Shane Thorne.
Lumis choked out Thorne for the win. It is confusing to know what Lumis is thinking about or what plan he has. Last week, Lumis helped Velveteen Dream. Does he want to have a friend by his side, or is he the type of person that is needing to fight?
Drake Maverick defeated Tony Nese.
Maverick is in a Disney movie where a person's life is hitting rock bottom and then he bounces back to win the gold. Drake lost his first match after receiving notice that he will be let go from WWE. Maverick stopped Nese's 450 splash and hit a top rope bulldog for the win.
Will Maverick win out? Maverick is dangerously close to being eliminated with one more loss. The WWE Universe is pulling for him.
Keith Lee defeated Damien Priest.
Lee came out loud at the beginning of the match. He threw him around, ensuring that he is the real champ. Despite Lee's condition, Priest gave it his all but failed. Priest grabbed a nightstick. Lee noticed and put a stop to it. He told Priest that he is the Limitless One and hit a pair of Spirit bombs. Lee pinned Priest for the victory.
