For those of you who want just the quick results from tonight’s Great American Bash, and don’t want the details of matches, this is a quick recap of tonight’s show:
WWE NXT Recap(7/6)
Matches Tonight: Four
NXT Tag Team Championship: MSK(c) vs Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher. Great match, especially the end. MSK retained by rolling up Thatcher to end the match. 8:03-8:23pm EST.
Million Dollar Championship Match: “the Million Dollar Megastar” LA Knight(c) vs Cameron Grimes. If Grimes loses, he will become the new Virgil–butler to the Million Dollar Megastar. Another fantastic match that saw LA Knight retain, but only after using almost every dirty trick in the book. 8:41-8:54pm EST.
NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship: the Way(c) vs Io Shirai & Zoey Stark. Decent match that saw Stark & Shirai crowned the new champions. 9:05-9:18pm EST.
Singles Match: Adam Cole vs Kyle O’Reilly. Solid match with a great eight-minute overrun that saw Adam Cole victorious over his former Era member. 9:42-10:08pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
Hit Row’s Championship Cypher: ]What’s that, you ask? The Hit Row crew rap for about 6-7 minutes, rapping and singing their way down the ramp and into the ring. They use their rap to put MSK and everyone else on notice, calling themselves the emperors and expressing their desire to get all the gold. FWIW, Swerve was the best on the mic and is actually pretty good but Top Dolla was the true star.
Wardrobe Function: FWIW, Indi Harwell wore Razor Ramon-inspired ring gear tonight.
Nothing stops the Battery: after weeks of clock-teasing, we finally watch our charging battery hit 100% and, with it, the return of Tegan Nox to NXT.
Employment Opportunity: Per the stipulation of his match, Cameron Grimes must now be LA Knight’s butler.
Next Week on NXT: Kross/Gargano for the NXT title, with Samoa Joe as the special guest referee.
