AG MATCH: Grizled Young Veterans vs The Creed Brothers; The GYVs put all their experience into play to counter the two young athletes however they must also pay attention to the Jacket Time team and the team composed of Briggs and Jensen who apparently have their same goal, the NXT Tag Team Championship.
The Creeds, on the other hand, manage to easily keep the focus on the match, even coming close to victory. The clash moves to ringside with the Creed Brothers one step away from destroying the comment table created ad hoc by Jacket Time.
Trick Williams was set to face Dexter Lumis on WWE NXT. Williams did not seem very comfortable at the thought of facing The Tortured Artist. Meanwhile, an interaction between Diamond Mine and Carmelo Hayes angered Roderick Strong.
Dexter Lumis def. Trick Williams
Williams made it to the ropes and Dexter Lumis unloaded on his opponent. Williams mounted a comeback, but Lumis was quick to take him down once again. Outside the ring, Strong and Melo started brawling.
The two men fought their way backstage, leaving Williams to fight on his own. The GYVs try to take advantage of the situation by pushing their opponents against Kushida and Ikamen in order to start a real bar fight to which Briggs and Jensen are added, thus forcing the referee to interrupt the match.
Result: no contest. It now remains to understand how the skein will unravel around the NXT Tag Team Championships that we remember being held by the Imperium and more precisely by Marcel Barthel and Fabian Aichner. On Tuesday (8/17), “In-Dex” faced Jessi Kamea and Robert Stone.
Ahead of the match, Harwell consulted with Candice LeRae and Johnny Gargano as she wanted to er relationship with Lumis to the ‘next level.’ As usual, the couple did not agree with Hartwell. Nonetheless, Hartwell and Lumis walked out to face Jessi and Robert.
Throughout the match, the NXT commentary team, especially Beth Phoenix was hyping up the chemistry between Lumis and Hartwell. However, this was not the best part of the match. Following the victory, Indi and Dexter both stared at each other until Hartwell backed away.
She went to the commentary table to retrieve something from Beth and came back to the ring. When she came back, Indi dropped on one knee, brought the ring (she retrieved it from Beth), and proposed to Dexter. By now, everyone knows that Gargano, LeRae, and Theory (while he was around) do not like the union of “In-dex”. Following the event, WWE interviewed Gargano and LeRae for their “thoughts” on the wedding.
