WWE NXT Results

March 20, 2019

NXT is back and this time, The Game kicks off the program!

Triple H came out to the ring with the NXT Championship in hand. He gave the Full Sail crowd time to chant and then got down to business.

Hunter said that NXT is special, including the building, the environment and the fans. He said that’s because in the NXT ring, dreams become possibilities. For some, the dream starts in the NXT ring. For others, it takes much longer. But the reality is that for everyone that steps into the ring, the dream can end at any time.

Triple H said that he was going to announce Johnny Gargano versus Tommaso Ciampa for the NXT Championship at Takeover: New York on April 5. But Hunter said that has to be put on hold because of Ciampa’s neck injury.

But when one dream ends, another one begins. The Game said that Johnny Wrestling will face the winner of tonight’s Fatal 5-Way Match between Ricochet, Adam Cole, Aleister Black, The Velveteen Dream and Matt Riddle. The winner of this match will step into the ring with Gargano on April 5.

Cathy Kelley is backstage with Kona Reeves and asks him about his reaction to the Fatal 5-Way main event. She then talks to The Forgotten Sons, who remind her that once again, they’re being forgotten. Wesley Blake and Steve Cutler also remind her about their own main event against Black and Ricochet next week in the finals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

A video package featuring Aleister Black and Ricochet is shown, retracing their journey to WWE’s main roster, as well as their work in the Dusty Classic. Both men are focused on tonight’s huge main event.

Velveteen Dream said that the spotlight is only big enough for one man. He also said that tonight, it’s dream over.

Ciampa’s trip to the hospital in Birmingham, Alabama is covered next. Three past operations are discussed, including his right knee and both shoulders. Ciampa must get pressure off his spinal cord because if not, he’s risking paralysis. It’s said that it may take a full year for him to recover.

Matt Riddle talks about working hard to stay undefeated and getting this shot at the NXT Championship. He said that he will be the next champ. Cole also speaks, reminding fans that he debuted in NXT two years ago in the Barclays Center and this year he’s going back in the Takeover main event.

Kairi Sane and Io Shirai are backstage and said that nothing can come between their friendship. At Takeover: New York, may the best one win. They’re interrupted by Bianca Belair, who said that neither one of them deserve to be working for the NXT Women’s Championship. Belair said that she would run through both of them to get the title.

Next up is the main event!
