Roderick Strong Wins NXT North American Title for the Undisputed Era

AND NEW!

The “prophecy” of the Undisputed Era has finally been fulfilled, as Roderick Strong defeated the Velveteen Dream in the main event of WWE NXT’s first ever main event on the USA Network, becoming the brand new NXT North American Champion!

While Strong wasn’t originally able to get the job done one-on-one last month at NXT Takeover: Toronto, this time around he had a huge assist from the other three members of his faction, as Adam Cole connected with a superkick heard ’round the world, opening the door for the so-called “Messiah of the Backbreaker” to deliver End of Heartache for the win.

Strong adds the NXT North American Championship to the Undisputed Era’s gallery of gold, as leader Adam Cole currently holds the coveted NXT Championship, and the long-running duo of Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish currently possess the NXT Tag Team Championships.

The show kicks off with the voice of Triple H talking about the legacy of NXT as clips of its top stars are shown. We see The Game in the darkness and he says “We… Are… NXT! Let us show you…” before walking out of the back and into Full Sail University, where the crowd goes absolutely insane.

Mauro Ranallo welcomes us to WInter Park, FL high atop his brand new commentary perch, and puts over the big move to the USA Network and the new live, two-hour format. Io Shirai’s music hits, and we head to the ring for the first match of a brand new era…

#1 CONTENDER’S MATCH
IO SHIRAI vs. BIANCA BELAIR vs. CANDICE LERAE vs. MIA YIM

Things start with an all-out brawl that sees Belair clear the ring and drop LeRae with an impressive military press slam. Shirai comes out of nowhere with a beautiful springboard missile dropkick sending her to the floor, and Yim follows up with a suicide dive that takes them all down. Shirai begins her climb to the top rope as her three opponents stir on the floor – a diving crossbody takes them all down again!

Back from commercial and I get the feelling the action did not slow down during the break, as all four women are brawling in the corner, jockeying for position. This sets up a huge Tower of Doom spot with all four crashing dawn in various suplexes from the top. LeRae is back to her feet and locks in a standing Octopus stretch on Shirai, but Yim breaks it up with an unceremonous boot to the face. Bodies are flying everywhere so it’s getting a bit difficult to keep track of, but at one point Belair actually hit the KOD but it was broken up at the last second.

Shirai hits LeRae with a Meteora in the corner and goes up top looking for her signature Moonsault, but Yim crotches her on the ropes and throws her all the way to the floor. Yim gets LeRae up into the Electric Chair position… but LeRae reverses with a POISON RANA! She gets up top again and hits a moonsault! 1…2…3!

Winner: Candice LeRae

Candice celebrates her victory on the ramp while the other three ladies recover. She turns around and finds herself surrounded by champion Shayna Baszler and her Horsewomen back-up Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke. We get a tense staredown between champion and challenger, but no violence this time around.

CAMERON GRIMES vs. SEAN MALUTA 

This one barely got going as Maluta charged his opponent and Grimes planted him with a double foot stomp in literally seconds. Boom. Welcome to the show, Grimes.

Winner: Cameron Grimes

BREAKING: Brock Lesnar to Challenge for WWE Title on FOX Debut

The first episode of Friday Night Smackdown on FOX just got a whole lot bigger.

Brock Lesnar, who has not been seen since losing the Universal Championship to Seth Rollins at SummerSlam, shocked everyone this Tuesday night in Atlanta, marching to the ring on Smackdown Live and issuing a monstrous challenge.

The “Beast Incarnate” wants the WWE Championship, and he has demanded to face Kofi Kingston for the title on October 4 when the blue brand arrives on FOX for the first time in history. That will be an absolutely stacked night, and could have major implications for the future with the Draft looming just one week later.

Being a fighting champion, the New Day member accepted the challenge almost immediately, but fell prey to a lighting-quick F5 from Lesnar before he even had time to reflect on that decision.

Vince McMahon And More Top Executives Reportedly Not At WWE Raw; Paul Heyman Runs The Show

According to a report by ProWrestlingSheet.com, Vince McMahon and several other top executives were not at WWE Raw last night.

As well as the WWE Chairman, the report stated that Triple H and Kevin Dunn were also missing from the show, which led to the new executive director, Paul Heyman, being in charge of the show.

Triple H was missing due to being in Orlando, Florida in order to prepare for NXT’s debut on the USA Network tomorrow night, but it isn’t known why either McMahon or Dunn was unavailable.

Michael Mansury, WWE’s VP of Global Television production was the man who filled in for Dunn, while Heyman was in control creatively of the show.

IN RING SEGMENT

BURN IT DOWWWWWN!!!! The MONSTER Slayer is here!!! Seth makes his way to the ring with a smile on his face and is happy to still be your Universal Champion! Seth mentions that he was not happy that he lost the Tag Team Championships. He says it doesn’t matter who’s fault it was because they didn’t have a chance to dwell on it much because they had to go against each other for the Universal Champion. He praises Braun that he had to use 4 Curb Stomps and a pedigree to put him down.

He didn’t have time to celebrate because before he knew it he was shrouded in darkness and the only thing he saw before he passed out was the Fiend, Bray Wyatt. But in a few weeks he gets to go one on one with the Fiend inside hell in a cell!

Suddenly we hear the music of the Firefly Funhouse and Bray Wyatt is on the screen. He says that they are best friends but he will forgive…but the Fiend never forgets. That’s why he saw him at Clash of Champions…and who knows…he might even see him tonight. Seth looks worried and creeped out.

IN RING SEGMENT

The two new tag team champions come out to the ring: Raw Tag Team Champions, Robert Roode & Dolph Ziggler and the Smackdwon Tag Team Champions, The Revival. Robert Roode starts to talk about how no one believed in them and no one thought they could be champions…..

BRAAAUUUUNNNNN!! Strowman comes out and he’s looking to have someone get these hands. He proceeds to mow down the Revival, then takes out Dolph Ziggler! Roode escapes the ring and Braun follows and he runs over both members of The Revival and Dolph, but Robert Roode gets away.

Tonight’s episode of WWE Raw will see the fallout from WWE Clash Of Champions take place, while the build towards WWE Hell In A Cell commences.

After successfully defending his Universal Championship against Braun Strowman, Seth Rollins’ celebrations were cut short as The Fiend made it clear who his next target is. Tonight we will see how Rollins reacts to Bray Wyatt’s attack, and what The Fiend has planned next.

As well as that, the Monster Amongst Men must also react to losing both of his matches last night, failing to capture the Universal Championship and losing the Tag Team Titles.

Following their all-out brawl last night, Becky Lynch and Sasha Banks will continue their rivalry as the Legit Boss continues her quest to become the new Raw Women’s Champion.

And, after a month of fantastic in-ring action, the WWE King of the Ring tournament will come to an end as Chad Gable faces Baron Corbin in the finals to determine who will be crowned King.

As always, you can join us for live coverage of Monday Night Raw at 8/7c.
