WWE NXT results: Eric Young debuts, battles NXT Champion Samoa Joe

  • The Big News: Eric Young debuted calling out the new NXT Champion Samoa Joe. However....
  • The Medium News: ...he then got choked out by Joe in the main event as Joe showed the world what happens when you challenge him.
  • The Little Beaver Sized News: Alex Riley said he will beat Shinsuke Nakamura next week because he is bigger. No, seriously.

Before starting, I want to announce to everyone who doesn't already know that I have come out as transgender. I do want to thank everyone here on F4WOnline.com for their support through this process of coming out. With that out of the way....

NXT kicks off with the brand new NXT Champion! Samoa Joe is here! Joe proclaimed that he is a man who keeps his word and despite the best efforts of the former champion, he is your new champion. If anyone has a problem with him being the man, he has no problem beating them down and choking them out. This was the queue for the debuting Eric Young! EY got a really big reaction, including a “Holy Sh*t” chant, followed by a chant of “EY”.

Eric acknowledges that they know each other, and called Joe a bad ass wrecking machine and said the only thing guaranteed in life is change. Young said he collects championships and while things have changed for Joe things will now change for Young. Joe just walked away, stopping on the ramp to say Young doesn't belong in the same ring as him and if he does Joe will beat his ass.

We then got an awkward cutaway to our opening match.

Nia Jax defeated Tessa Blanchard

Blanchard is back, having lost her debut at the Axxess NXT taping. However, her second match didn't turn out much better as she took on the massive Jax who has only lost one match -- to Bayley back at Takeover: London.

Tessa went running off the ropes for a crossbody, but Nia just stood there, absorbing the blow and letting her crash to the mat. Nia laid her out with a corner splash, Samoan Drop, and won with the legdrop.

A No Way Jose vignette aired to build up his Full Sail debut tonight

Austin Aries defeated Tye Dillinger

It is time for the Perfect 10! Mind you, Tye has been the Perfect 10 since July and has still yet to win 10 tv matches. Heck I don't think he's won five, but despite that the fans really get into the 10 gimmick. His win-loss record doesn't seem to be improving since he's squaring off with Aries tonight who is already the third former TNA Champion on the show tonight.

Aries had a much better match here than with Baron Corbin since Dillinger is not a foot taller (and is also underrated as a worker). Aries used a slingshot senton into the ring and a slingshot corkscrew plancha out of the ring at one point, but Dillinger used a Fireman's Carry where he dropped Aries head-first on the back of his knee for a very believable near fall. Dillinger pulled down his knee pad, but got hit with a Rolling Elbow and a 450 Splash and Aries is your winner.

The Revival defeated The Hype Bros

This match was set up last week when The Revival laid out Zack and Mojo after the faces defeated Blake & Murphy. This was a showcase match for Dash and Dawson as it was all about them, as opposed to being a serious back and forth match. Mojo got to run wild for 20 seconds on the hot tag, but got hit with the Shatter Machine out of nowhere  to give the former champs another win.

********

Alex Riley was asked about his match with Shinsuke Nakamura next week. Riley said Nakamura is half his size, has no athletic ability, and when he punches Riley in the face Riley will punch him and his will be harder. He finished by saying next week is time to rage.

No Way Jose pinned Noah

Jose was already embraced by the crowd in his Full Sail debut. His opponent was only called Noah and he didn't last long, getting pinned with a winding punch to the face and then a Full Nelson Slam.

********

Aries was interviewed by Cathy, saying he is the Perfect 20. He said something seems off about Aries and people don't know how to take him. He said he is going to take the initiative to become a bigger star.

********

We got a Finn Balor video package, which included clips of Joe beating him for the title. It built up to promoting his return next week.

NXT Champion Samoa Joe submitted Eric Young

Young debuted less than an hour ago and now is in the main event, going one on one with the NXT Champion himself.

This match was to establish Young as being on the same level as Joe. Early on, every time Joe would hit a move, Young would either reverse it or do the same thing just better. Joe dumped Young outside the ring, hit a big Suicide Dive and took over from there.

Joe slapped him hard, which was the encouragement for Young to make his comeback, but towards the end of the match, Young just couldn't put together multiple moves in a row and absorbed loads of punishment. Young took Joe over with a suplex that looked like a legit feat of strength and did hit his top rope elbow, but only got a 2 count.

Joe countered out of a Young piledriver and hit his corner uranage before picking up the win with the Muscle Buster, followed by the Coquina Clutch. Joe refused to break the choke afterwards to prove a point to not only Young, but to the entire wrestling world that this is what happens when you try to face the NXT Champion.

That does it for this week. Until we talk again, remember to say your vitamins and take your prayers!
