WWE NXT results: Bayley vs Nia Jax: Austin Aries & Nakamura team up

Bayley vs. Nia Jax
  • The Big News: Nia Jax flat out destroyed Bayley in the main event, laying claim to #1 contender status
  • The Medium News: William Regal made Samoa Joe vs. Finn Balor a steel cage match at NXT TakeOver.
  • The Little Beaver Sized News: Austin Aries and Shinsuke Nakamura made a tremendous team.

Austin Aries & Shinsuke Nakamura defeated Blake & Murphy

Tag team action kicks things off this week. This was set up last week when Blake & Murphy stormed into Mr. Regal's office and demanded a title shot while he was having a meeting with Austin Aries. Aries was told to find a partner and he did find quite the teammate in Shinsuke Nakamura.

Blake & Murphy were in disarray from the start. There was a disagreement over who would start, so Aries ran across the ring with a dropkick and almost pinned Murphy in 10 seconds. Aries and Nakamura worked very well together..,so well that I was hoping they would become a full time team, but alas that probably ain't happening any time soon.

Blake ran away instead of dealing with Nakamura, so Nakamura gave Murphy the Kinshasa for the pin. Aries wanted the tag, but Nakamura either didn't see it or ignored it. Blake, Murphy and Alexa argued after the match with Alexa walking off on them and then Blake walking off on Murphy.

Bayley was backstage and said she is not afraid of Nia Jax and while she is tough the same thing that happened in London would happen tonight and after this she is going after Asuka again.

We got a music video with clips of Asuka interspersed throughout.

No Way Jose is really excited to be on NXT, happy to show off his smile and hope people don't underestimate him. This is just Jose being Jose and he is here to have fun, have a fiesta and have a fight.

Carmella submitted Peyton Royce

Backstage, Carmella cut a promo looking to the left of the camera, talking about her boys Enzo and Cass before saying she wants to be Women's Champion. Peyton calls herself the Venus Flytrap of NXT...and no one has a clue as to what she's talking about.

Peyton got a near fall with a kick to the face and a version of the Three Amigos where she used a Fisherman's Suplex at the end. Carmella looked good on her comeback, picking up the win with a Flatliner, followed by the Headscissors.

Last Saturday night in Portland at an NXT house show there was mass chaos with Joe and Balor, necessitating the entire locker room emptying to pull them apart. This led to the announcement by William Regal announcing a cage match with Samoa Joe and Finn Balor at NXT TakeOver.

********

Blake, Murphy, and Alexa were backstage arguing. Alexa shouted that she was tired of them constantly losing, so she is dumping 470 pounds of lifeless weight in order to win the NXT Women's Championship.

Johnny Gargano & Tommaso Ciampa defeated Danny Burch & Rob Ryzin

After being in NXT for close to a year, Gargano & Ciampa have, I believe, their first squash match. Corey Graves made a point that the fans always chant Johnny Wrestling but never chant for Ciampa.

Gargano and Ciampa made fools out of Burch for several minutes until Ryzin distracted Ciampa just long enough for Burch to take over. Even then, the heels didn't last very long on offense. Gargano did a spear through the ropes on Ryzin before Gargano and Ciampa finished him off with a double superkick to the head.

Mr. William Regal was backstage and he congratulated Enzo & Cass and The Vaudevillians on being called up to Raw before booking American Alpha vs The Revival at TakeOver.

Nia Jax pinned Bayley

This wasn't officially a #1 contender's match, but it is a safe bet that the winner here will probably face Asuka at TakeOver. These two faced off in London last December with Bayley winning by tapout.

Bayley started by using the same strategy at TakeOver, working for the guillotine but constantly getting thrown off, including landing face first. Nia played monster while Bayley did everything she could to try to slay the dragon a second time, but no matter the move, Nia seemed to have a counter for it.

Nia used a tilt-a-whirl shoulderbreaker on Bayley and used that to begin an assault on her shoulder, which would prevent any attempt at a guillotine or a Belly to Bayley Suplex. Nia used a Cobra Clutch and her jumping bearhug to wear down the former champion. Bayley made her comeback using leg kicks, but she could not maintain a sustained offense. The closest Bayley got was using a crossbody off the top rope, but Nia kicked out.

Bayley finally got on the guillotine, but she was thrown off, landing awkwardly on her knee. Nia squashed her in the corner and then picked up the win with a legdrop! Nia Jax has completely dominated the former champion! What will happen if and when she gets her hands on Asuka?

Until next week, remember to say your vitamins and take your prayers!
