Another week, another episode of NXT on the USA Network. Nothing is sweeter for The Chadster than watching a new episode NXT, and no betrayal feels deeper than checking the next day to see AEW Dynamite beat them in the ratings. But this week is gonna be different. The Chadster can feel it in his bones. This is the week that NXT wins.
But until then, here's some video highlights from the show.
Video Highlights from NXT
NXT opened with a great match between rivals Shotzi Blackheart and Candice LeRae. But it was Indi Hartwell who helped decide the victor.
But later, Shotzi Blackheart announced she'd join the women's Dusty Rhodes Classic along with Ember Moon. Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter also entered.
As did Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell.
In other Gargano news, Johnny Gargano received an invitation to a match with Dexter Lumis.
But somehow it all ended with Gargano in the Hoverboard lock.
Finn Balor found a new challenger for the NXT North American Championship in Pete Dunne.
But Karrion Kross already has a claim on that.
Tomasso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher renewed their feud after a brief break for injury.
While Raquel Gonzalez looked toward the future.
Xia Li's new gimmick, whatever it is, is doing great.
But the main focus of the show was the Men's Dusty Rhodes Classic, with Grizzled Young Veterans picking up the first win in the tournament against Ever-Rise.
MSK, the team formerly known as The Rascalz, made their NXT debut in the tournament.
Pete Dunne, Oney Lorcan, and Danny Burch played a role again, crashing the main event between Undisputed Era and Breezango.
NXT was great as always. Maybe the best episode of the show ever. At least, in The Chadster's opinion, it was.
