Mr. Nick’s Notes: NXT Edition

06/12/2019 from Bel Air, MD

This episode of NXT looks like it was taped on tour. I like it! NXT getting out of Full Sail and the WWE Performance Centre every so often makes sense.

The first match of the show is Candice LaRae & Io Shirai v Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir. Full disclosure here, it took me half the match trying to spell Jessamyn. Shayna Baszler is looking on from the entrance ramp. Io Shirai is the star of this match (as expected) and of course Baszler gets involved to start a brawl all over the arena.

A second recap of the Breeze/Dream match from Takeover XXV before a short tease from Dream.

Quick hype video for Damien Priest who debut is next week.

The match I was anticipating this week is next. Drew Gulak v Kushida in a submission match! I’m not alone, Mauro is excited to call this match. Here we go!

Gulak taps to the hoverboard lock after an absolute wrestling classic. Gulak shows respect to Kushida after the match which sadly might end their short fued. I hope not, these two have amazing chemistry and got a submission match over. More please.

Vanessa Borne & Aliyah doing their best IIconics rehash trying to fashion-shame Mia Yim? Okay then…

Main event time.
Undisputed Era Strong & O’Reilly v Danny Birch & Oney Lorcan

These are always hard hitting matches and this should be no different. Always entertaining.

Ryker comes down to the ring and distracts the Undisputed Era. Birch and Lorcan get a huge win as a result. Setting up some big things here…

Mauro quickly sends the show off the air. See you next week!
