[NXT SPOILERS] NXT TV 12/5 (Taped 11/28)


Recommended Posts

In theory - stuff could air out of order but they haven't done that in awhile. Tapings go through the end of the year.

From PWI


Dark Match:

Luke Menzies def.  Mansoor Al-Sheihal

Week 1:

- Matt Riddle def. Punishment Martinez

Post match: Riddle is walking up the rap when Kassius Ohno hits him with a spinning elbow

- Forgotten Sons def. Raul Mendoza and Humberto Carillo

- Shayna Baszler (w/Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir) def. Dakota Kai

Post match: Baszler, Duke and Shafir attack Kai until Io Shirai makes the save.

- Tomasso Ciampa comes out and brags about his win at Takeover. He kept his promise to turn the dream into a nightmare. He is the MVP of 2018 and kids will study his work growing up. Aleister Black comes out to challenge Ciampa at Takeover Phoenix. Johnny Gargano storms out and says it isn't over between him and Black.  Ciampa goads them into accepting a steel cage match against each other. Black goes to hit a Black Mass on Gargano, but Gargano escapes. Black hits a Black Mass on Ciampa instead.

From WON


Dark match --
- Luke Menzies defeated Mansoor

Menzies won with an over-the-shoulder spinning slam.

- Matt Riddle defeated Punishment Martinez

The crowd reacted well for Martinez, who was making his NXT television debut. He held his own with Riddle before getting caught in the Bromission.

After the match, Kassius Ohno showed up behind Riddle on the ramp and knocked him out as Riddle turned around.

- The Forgotten Sons (Wesley Blake & Steve Cutler) defeated Humberto Carrillo & Raul Mendoza

A flying knee off the ropes won it for The Forgotten Sons.

- NXT Women's Champion Shayna Baszler (w/ Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke) defeated Dakota Kai

Very good match here. Kai hit Baszler with everything she had before getting caught in the choke. The three Horsewomen attacked Kai after the match until Io Shirai made the save.

- There was an in-ring segment with Tommaso Ciampa, who was interrupted by Aleister Black. Black was about to invoke his title rematch for TakeOver: Phoenix before Johnny Gargano interrupted and said he wasn't done with Black.

Ciampa instigated the two and said that maybe they should have been locked in that cage at TakeOver: WarGames II. Ciampa suggested that Black and Gargano have a cage match here at Full Sail. A Black Mass to Gargano missed, Gargano bailed, and Ciampa was wiped out with one by Black for good measure.

Shayna/Dakota and the Ciampa promo were great. Shayna/Dakota may have been MOTN. Dakota is soooo underated. She throws some pretty nasty looking double stomps and her selling is really good.

Punishnent Martinez rules. That is one of the best ridiculous wrestling names ever. “Hey! I’m Punishment, it’s nice to meet you.” His theme music sounds like a Suicide b-Side. I also went to a random Puerto Rican hardcore show when I was in college and Punishment looked like all those dudes. All in on a maniacal post-punk fan of Puerto Rican heritage with striking abilities.

Yup, that was Dakota's best showing. Great selling and fire. 

That SAMCRO vs Mendoza/Carillo match was pretty damn nifty, too. The Sons found themselves some mean as hell offense, and Mendoza continues to steal the show whenever he gets in the ring. Dude straight up rules. Between Lorcan and Burch, Street Profits and Heavy Machinery,  there's been three face teams ready to get heated up and take down UE for the tag straps and have the crowd lose their shit. Mendoza and Carillo are gonna get themselves to that level sooner than ya think. 

LOVED that quick pan over to Mauro during Ciampa's promo. Bad things are afoot at the announce booth. 

Awesome episode.

That Dakota/Shayna match was a keeper. Dakota is an awesome babyface. Shayna is the best. She does such a great job as someone who acts like this dominant monster but always finds a way to escape with a victory. Her henchwomen rule, too. They make such great jerk jock snob faces.

Not sure how taught Jessamyn Duke how to work a beatdown to give him or her a little bonus.  All the others working this safe kicks that aren't even close to Dakota and here is Duke just hulk smashing her with straight lefts and rights non stop like Kai is a punching bag
