WWE NXT Results
September 11, 2019
A black sedan is shown pulling up to Full Sail University. It’s… Rhea Ripley! She’ll go one-on-one with NXT Women’s Champion Shayna Baszler in tonight’s main event.
Mauro Ranallo welcomes us inside the arena as Nigel McGuinness reminds us that Johnny Gargano will return tonight to address his future with the brand.
DAMIEN PREIST vs. BOA
Boa tries to take the big man down (he’s actually not that smaller himself) but gets turned out by a shoulder block. Priest pummels him with some right hands and a kick to the jaw, before simply tossing him across the ring. This one doesn’t last long as Priest is livid when Boa tries to put up a fight, and drops him with The Reckoning. Sorry kid.
Winner: Damien Priest
A video package plays recapping the rivalry between The Velveteen Dream and Roderick Strong, with Dream retaining at Takeover: Toronto, and Strong burning down his purple couch last week. The two will battle for the North American title next week on the NXT debut on the USA network.
Johnny Gargano comes out to the ring and fans immediately starts to chant “Johnny Wrestling!” while one dude boos as loudly as he can. He tries to talk but they just start chanting again. This goes on for literally like four straight minutes. It goes back and forth from obnoxious to sort of impressive like half a dozen times. This is… seriously like the longest wrestling chant of all time. Finally Gargano cuts them off and says last time he was in the ring, he woke up after falling 20 feet off the top of a steel cage, realizing he had lost to Adam Cole. He’s heard all the rumors and read all the reports, and everyone including his mother has asked him about his future in NXT. Well he loves this place, and he’s loved every single minute of his journey through NXT, but he has made his decision…
Shane Thorne interrupts before we can finally get down to business. He rants about the crowd wasting everybody’s time with stupid chants for Johnny, and rambles a bit saying “I get it” like 10 times. I don’t know what he gets. Thorne says NXT will be just fine without Gargano in it, and in fact, with him finally in the spotlight it will be even better. He tells Johnny to take a walk, which obviously leads to him getting punched in the face. Gargano says “I am NXT and I’m not going anywhere”, then superkicks Shane in the face.
PETE DUNNE vs. ANGEL GARZA
Garza wants to take off his break-away pants but Dunne takes him to the mat instead. Garza breaks free and does a few leapfrogs trying to out-manuever his opponent, but runs into a heavy elbow strike. Dunne kicks him in the shoulder and then begins to stomp away at him. He goes for the fingers but gets sent to the outside, and now Garza is able to take off his pants. Hooray!
The two brawl to the outside and Garza nails Dunne with a superkick. He follows with a springboard dropkick back in the ring, then ducks and lariat and hits another dropkick square in the face. Nasty. He perches the Bruiserweight in the corner and nails a third dropkick to the midsection, but it’s not enough to get the three. Garza is livid and just starts raining down right hands until Dunne is barely moving. Dunne caught him in a submission then just started kicking Garza in the head over and over again. He went after the fingers and starting wrenching at them until getting the submission.
Winner: Pete Dunne
We are reminded that next week NXT debuts on the USA Network.
