WWE NXT APRIL 19TH RESULTS AND LIVE BLOG
I have to leave alone in nature, where I could escape my constraints. But what about the other? Could I bear the cold thought of never seeing her win? Although there is some madness here, she is at least a brilliant brilliant to help me through the liveblogging of this pro wrestling show here for you guys.
The show opens with a recap of last week’s gauntlet match that saw Pretty Deadly crowned the new NXT Tag Team Champions, interspersed with Joe Gacy’s “signal is hacked” heists.
As Pretty Deadly makes its entrance, we see footage of Bron Breakker walking towards the arena.
Pretty Deadly takes the microphone and sings her victory, but they are soon interrupted…
The grizzled young veterans make their entrance.
GYV says the only reason Pretty Deadly had success in the UK is because they left, and the only reason they won the title last week is because they weren’t in the game .
Enter Legado del Fantasma.
They beat GYV while Elektra Lopez says they also want a title match.
Referees try to break things up.
Bron Breakker arrives with a bang and he calls Joe Gacy to see exactly what he is going to sacrifice.
Joe appears on the PA arena and says he’s not a hard man to find and he has what Bron wants, so come find him.
Tiffany Stratton comes in and we’re going to take a break.
Back from the commercial, we get a video of Santos Escobar telling Carmelo Hayes that he should be behind him in line for an NXT North American Championship title.
Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams get a live promo where he says he’s not taking it and they’ll have a fight over it.
Sarray vs. Tiffany Stratton
Sarray with a push, Stratton kicks him back, wrist lock, reverse to arm drag! Dropkick, dodge a lariat, big forearm, off the ropes, Sarray with a schoolboy for two and in a deathlock when she comes out! Tiffany dodges the running dropkick, puts Sarray on the ropes for a hip attack and covers her… NO!
Cobra Clutch applied, shoved it in, Sarray escapes and goes up top, diving double stomp, smothering her in the ropes, Stratton hangs on but she shakes her off and hits the running dropkick this time! Waistlock applied, Tiffany blocks with a back elbow, popping up…
Tiffany Stratton wins by pinfall with a Vader Bomb corkscrew.
Backstage, Bron Breakker pretty much scours Grizzled Young Vets looking for Gacy. He hears a voice calling him and he goes through a door to find the cell where Joe was holding his father. The voiceover continues and Breakker finds a tablet playing images of his tortured father, and we’re going to break.
Back from publicity, Pretty Deadly walks backstage when they meet Persia Pirotta and Indi Hartwell.
The girls have a favor to ask, they want a match. Pretty Deadly agrees, then they reveal they meant with Dexter Lumis and Duke Hudson, and the tag champions fade to the background with vague promises to talk later.
Grayson Waller is interviewed backstage.
He says Sanga was only useful insofar as he had a plan to win the North American Championship, and since he doesn’t have the title, he left. He’s not afraid of Sanga, Chase U rides to have a learning moment, and then…
He walks inexorably in Grayson’s direction, running through whatever Waller literally throws at him. They end up in the ring, a referee is there and Waller wants a match?!
Grayson Waller vs. Sanga
Grayson throws forearms, Sanga destroys him then starts throwing him with abandon! Waller manages to bring him to his knees, throwing punches at him, pushes him into the ropes and Sanga levels him with a shoulder block! Off the ropes again, another freight train, big back suplex and he smashes Grayson’s face to the mat!
Elbow back but Waller grabs the ropes! On the floor, Waller floats out of a chokeslam and puts it in the post, back inside and Grayson gets off to a flying start…
Grayson Waller wins by pinfall with rolling thunder Ace Crusher.
Cora Jade receives a promotional package in which she promises to kick Natalya’s ass.
Legado del Fantasma enters to send us to the break.
