The Ealy Brothers v Authors of Pain
EALYS: Yo, we're big and angry cause AoP punked us out last week and also we're getting this inset promo, so surely we will kick AoP's ass.
AUTHORS OF PAIN: No.
AUTHORS OF PAIN kill EALYS.
PAUL ELLERING: Something something algorithms something something book and also Revival, you're dead men.
AUTHORS OF PAIN do their best BORK impression.
#DIY enters.
CIAMPA: *Gravelly voice intensifies*
ELLERING: Hey, that's my gimmick!
GARGANO: Give us a title shot, preferably without the Revival around, so we can be champs again.
REVIVAL enters.
REVIVAL: We put this division on the map and you can't sideline us. Give us a title shot too.
ELLERING, DIY, REVIVAL: We seem to be at an impasse.
REGAL to the rescue!
REGAL: Triple threat elimination match!
UNIVERSE: Hallelujah!

AT A LUSH RESORT
ASUKA: I'm literally the women's revolution, no one can beat me, and also Ember Moon has no chance.

Macy Estrella v Nikki Cross
NIGEL: Whoo baby!
MACY: Have a punch.
NIKKI: That is literally the only offense you're going to get in this match.
NIKKI: Fisherman's neckbreaker!
MACY: That honestly wasn't that bad.
NIKKI: *does it FIVE MORE TIMES*
MACY: Ouch.
NIKKI wins.
JOSE and TYE: Surprise, bitches!
NIKKI: Nope.
SANITY: lol numbers game!
SANITY kills JOSE and TYE.

VIGNETTE
ALEISTER BLACK: I have a creepy eye tattoo on my back, and also I was possibly raised by aliens, and soon everything will fade to *BLACK*. Get it? Black? Okay.

BACKSTAGE
ANDRADE bullies HO HO, high school style
ONEY: I hate bullies so you better back off.
ANDRADE: What are you gonna do about it?
ONEY: Nothing in particular, what are you gonna do?
ANDRADE: Also nothing in particular.
ONEY: THEM'S FIGHTING WORDS! I'll see you in the ring next week.
ANDRADE: k.

NXT Title: Bobby Roode vs Kassius Ohno
OHNO: We can talk about success once I win the title.
ROODE: Ohno doesn't even deserve this title shot because he's a failure.

OHNO: I will wear literally the SINGLE WORST THING I could think of (dailywrestlingnews.com).
NAK (backstage, watching): I'm literally frozen like a statue from just seeing how hideous that is.
OHNO: Have all the offense!
ROODE: Time to take a powder.
ROODE steps outside to regain composure.
ROODE: Lariat and some rest holds?
OHNO: I'd rather not.
ROODE: Too bad.
ROODE kicks his ass.
OHNO: Comeback?
ROODE: Don't think so. Chinlock?
OHNO: If you insist.
This goes on for some time.
ROODE: Finisher?
OHNO: I haven't even gotten my offense in.
ROODE: Damn.
OHNO: All the strikes!
ROODE: Ouch.
OHNO: Death by Elbow!
ROODE falls out of the ring.
OHNO: Welp. I gave it the ole college try.
ROODE: Vague cheating but not really!
OHNO: You're pinning me clean, aren't you?
ROODE: More or less.
ROODE: Glorious DDT!
OHNO: ded.
ROODE wins.


Pretty decent NXT again.
1. Asuka's video is phenomenal. Track it down and watch it, she's basically the female Roman Reigns without the fan backlash.
2. The main event went about 18 minutes. It was Perfectly Acceptable Wrestling, but it wasn't anything I would have regretted missing.
3. Ohno's attire was... something. There are other people in the WWE that are similar to him in body shape (most notably the other KO, and at no point has Kevin Owens ever looked anything other than a badass in terms of ring gear), and Ohno needs to follow that template because when the biggest takeaway from your 18-minute title challenge is how mind-boggling hideous you looked, you've done something wrong.

Wait, you don't remember his time on the '92 Olympic Dream Team?

I honestly couldn't focus on the title match because I was so entranced by the hideousness of Ohno's ring gear. It was hypnotic. Is this some kind of punishment/humbling thing? Is he trolling us? Does he just have no sense of aesthetic? I like what Ohno does in the ring and with promos, but please someone dress this man!

I love retro-style military policewoman and I love Nikki Cross destroying someone double her size, so that segment was win-win for me.

Alister Black looks like a fantasy teenage me would have had in the 90's, I cannot hate that.

I hope the others that raised Tyler Black end up being Bray Wyatt. ;)

Another great recap. I really liked this episode. Asuka's in full heel mode going into the match with Moon - "The moon can't outshine the sun" is such great stuff - and the win over Ohno gives Roode some much-needed credibility, even if I'd rather he just wasn't champion. The tag title 3-way was a bit of a foregone conclusion, but it still stands to be a great match that we all wanted anyways. And next week, we get Almas/Lorcan, which we've seen before, but which is pretty reliably great, so no complaints from me.

I was only six in 1992 so I didn't even know this jersey existed. I feel a little better that his ring gear was...erm...inspired by something.

These are exactly my thoughts! I can't remember the last time I was distracted from a match by what one of the participants was wearing. It had to be a rib, right? Even if he untucks that jersey, he improves his appearance by 1000%. Honestly he could even go the JBL route, wear high tights, long boots, kneepads, and elbow pads and let the belly jiggle, and that'll be more forgiving to his appearance.

I've seen this match at an NXT house show in Boston, and it was pretty awesome. In general NXT live shows are a really good experience, especially just prior to big TakeOvers. I'd highly recommend checking one out.

On the indies, Hero wore basketball jersies, but left them all untucked. Feels like the change is a WWE thing.

Stampede, you're not alone. I didn't order Over The Edge 1999 - and I came online that night to read someone say "my thoughts and prayers are with the Hart family". I figured Stu had passed. The poor man's going to outlive 'em all.
