Jack Hunter is in the ring with Team NXT 2.0 (Bron Breakker, Carmelo Hayes, Grayson Waller, Tony D'Angelo, and Trick Williams). Since Breakker has the finals of the Future Stars tournament in the main event, the others will be matched against 4 "old school" opponents in singles matches, but cannot interfere in each other's bouts. Williams, who has the fewest matches of the group, is up first.
Back from break, Williams is all alone. Shelton Benjamin is out next for a heel vs. heel opener.
1. Benjamin pinned Williams after Paydirt at 5:30. It served a purpose.
2. NXT women's title: Mandy Rose vs. Raquel Gonzalez was ruled a no contest at 8:00 when their War Games teams brawled in the ring.
3. Non-title: Shinsuke Nakamura def. Grayson Waller with Kinshasa in 7:30. Waller tried to keep up. No Rick Boogs, as he'll be in action later.
4. UWA vs. WWE women's tag titles: Nikki ASH & Rhea Ripley def. Carmella & Queen Zelina via DQ when Carmella used the scepter on Nikki at 8:40. The intentional DQ keeps the WWE titles with the heels, but not for much longer. Stephanie McMahon is out, and announces that at Winter Warfare on 12/26, the two teams will be rematched for the WWE titles.
5. Non-title: Carmelo Hayes def. Cedric Alexander with the top rope legdrop at 8:55.
6. WWE title: Finn Balor vs. Big E went to no contest when Seth Rollins interfered, and tried to get the champion DQ'd for the 2nd time in a week, but Kevin Owens came down, and there was another brawl. Ref John Cone threw the match out at 11:30.
Tony D'Angelo is looking for Vince McMahon, but gets Stephanie instead. He makes a disrespectful remark about Triple H, but Stephanie's not taking the bait. She has an opponent on deck for D'Angelo..........
7. Universal title: Roman Reigns def. Sheamus in 13:30 via the spear.
8. Rick Boogs def. Madcap (Riddick) Moss in 2:30 with the Sound Check (pumphandle slam).
Announced for next week:
National title: Malakai Black vs. Happy Corbin.
Cruiserweight title: Sammy Guevara vs. Roderick Strong.
UWA tag team titles: Viking Raiders vs. the Good Brothers.
Tony D'Angelo is out for his match, and cuts another promo on Triple H. Jack is back out, and says he has a surprise for D'Angelo. Doing a Marlon Brando mimic ("The Godfather"), he taunts D'Angelo about being "in over his head", and that his opponent has "no limits". Uh-ooooohhhh!!!!
9. Keith Lee returned, no longer the Bearcat, and accompanied by his fiancee, Mia Yim, and squashed D'Angelo with the Big Bang Catastrophe in 2:40. Lee & Yim got a monster pop coming out.
10. Future Stars fatal 4-way finale: Bron Breakker vs. Solo Sikoa vs. Xyon Quinn vs. Von Wagner. Order of elimination:
1st fall: Solo Sikoa pinned Wagner (Kyle O'Reilly was in the coach's box) with the Samoan Spike (like the late Umaga) and Splash in 11:50.
2nd fall: Sikoa pinned Quinn with a Samoan Drop after countering out of the jackhammer at 17:50.
3rd fall: Breakker won the tournament with a top rope bulldog on Sikoa at 23:10.
Backstage, D'Angelo, believing he was disrespected, goes after Stephanie, but Jack steps in between them, and, all of a sudden, D'Angelo feels really small. He's got the One Man Assault Machine next week!
