No Contest

General Manager William Regal bringing Ember Moon and Asuka out for their contract signing. Regal says let’s make this official, but before signing, Moon grabs the microphone. She says Asuka is one of the best to ever step foot in WWE, surpassing even Goldberg which gets an “ASUKA” chant from Full Sail. One thing sticks out to Ember, though. She’s only ever taken shortcuts with her. At Orlando, she grabbed the referee, and before Chicago, she injured her to keep her out of the title match. But the champ made a mistake because Moon is motivated and better than ever thanks to Asuka’s shortcuts. And to say thanks, she is going to end her title reign and her undefeated streak in Brooklyn! Both wrestlers sign, as does Regal. The champ grabs the mic and cuts a promo in Japanese as they get in each others’ faces. Asuka holds up the belt and a staredown ends the segment.
     Street Profits are next. Before that, we get a segment in the GM’s office. He’s telling a story about how someone married Robert Plant when Lars Sullivan comes in and asks for another tag match. Regal explains his partner could lose, and he can’t have Sullivan beating him senseless after the bout. Lars promises to be good and gives him one last shot.Street Profits def. Lars Sullivan and Chris Silvio via pinfall following the powerbomb/frog splash combo; Silvio charged in when Sullivan was set to start and got wiped out, causing Montez Ford to freak out, even running into the crowd. Lars never gets tagged in, but manages to keep it together and only carry his partner to the back somewhat aggressively, but still...not kill him.Not so fast... backstage, Sullivan carries Silvio outside and throws him into the barricade, then the trash. Ranallo explains Lars only promised to not destroy his partner “in the ring”, so this doesn’t technically count.
   The Iconic Duo “makeover” video from last week, where they run down Ruby Riot, is played to set-up.Ruby Riot def. Billie Kay via pinfall following Pele Kick variant; Riot also leveled Peyton Royce with a kick when she tried to grab her from the floor. Afterward, Royce grabs a mic and says all she’s done is prove lightning strikes once. She’s still a “gross, tattooed loser” who will never be iconic.The announce trio run down the card for Saturday, with the tag title match between Authors of Pain and SAnitY getting a video package with Paul Ellering narrating AOP's rise and showing highlights of their run-ins with Eric Young’s group
Drew McIntyre vs. Roderick Strong ends in a no contest when Bobby Roode shows up to boot Roddy to the floor from top turnbuckle and then pick apart McIntyre while he was hung up in the tree of woe. The champ throws Strong into the steel steps and then hits Drew with a Glorious DDT. Roode blows a kiss to Roddy and does the Glorious pose with the belt over McIntyre, screaming this is “MY NXT” as the show ends.

It's Johnny...

For the first time since a shocking betrayal by Tommaso Ciampa left him beaten and battered, and DIY a thing of the past, Johnny Gargano returned to NXT television Wednesday night and addressed the fans inside Full Sail University. Former Ring of Honor tag team and television champion Bobby Fish made his return in the NXT Arena, battling Aleister Black in a match that foreshadowed great things for the veteran in-ring performer.             Bobby Fish made his NXT debut to a thunderous ovation Wednesday night. He would have the unenviable task of being the latest Superstar to try to remove Aleister Black from the ranks of the undefeated. Black scored an early kick across the chest that blasted the wind from the newcomer, but Fish answered back with a leg sweep that turned the tide in his favor. Fish's educated feet proved his greatest strength as he targeted Black's equally as educated lower limbs. Looking to prevent his opponent from utilizing Black Mass, Fish…

The Usos say they and The New Day are the tag team division and they run the division. The New Day wonders if The Usos are asking for a truce. The Usos say it's all about respect. The fans pop. Th…
