WWE NXT Live Results (2/10/2021) - Capitol Wrestling Center, Winter Park, FL



Show Opener: Welcome to NXT!

Michael Cole's favorite commentator, Vic Joseph, welcomes us to the Capitol Wrestling Center! This is our final NXT before this Sunday's NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day! Green light illuminates our arena as we get right into our first match!

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Semifinals Match: MSK vs Legado del Fantasma

MSK are in the ring, posing and firing themselves up for this Semifinals match. Legado, represented by Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde, make their way to the ring. Starting off are Joaquin Wilde and Dezmond Xavier Wes Lee. Lee and Wilde lock up and Wilde takes Lee down to the mat. Wilde executes a sequence controlling Lee's arm and taking him down to the mat. Wilde shows off a bit of technical prowess in twisting his legs amongst Lee's and attempting a submission. Lee escapes and both men jockey for control. Lee manages to whip WIlde into the MSK corner and charges in, hitting a crossbody and allowing Zachary Wentz Nash Carter to tag in. Lee executes a step-up kick to Wilde's head and Carter comes in, taking control with a series of arm drags and grapple attempts. Wilde retreats to his corner and tags in Raul Mendoza.
Nash and Mendoza execute a sequence that carries on for over a minute, in which each man attempts to use arms or grapples to execute a move, but the other man constantly counters or transitions it into a move of their own, with neither taking the upper hand. Mendoza tags in Wilde as Carter tags in Lee. Wilde sends Lee into the corner and hits a short running clothesline. Wilde tags in Mendoza who charges in for a clothesline. They repeat this process at least half a dozen times before finally working together to hit a double suplex. Wilde attempts a cover but gets two. Wilde tags in Mendoza. Mendoza attempts to grapple Lee, but Lee's athletic ability helps him to escape and tag in Carter, who hits the ring hot! Carter with a snap suplex. Carter looks for a German Suplex but Mendoza escapes. Carter with a big suplex and a close pin. Mendoza tags in Wilde, who takes down Carter and sends him flying to the outside before running across the ring to take out Lee. We go to break.
Back from the break finds Carter attempting to escape Mendoza. Mendoza has a grip on Carter's foot. Carter finally breaks free and tags in Wes Lee. Lee streaks across to take down Mendoza and sends him out of the ring. Wilde comes in and is sent out as well. Carter notices, looks to his partner Lee in the ring, and does a standing Moonsault on the apron--and Lee shoves Carter away from the ring, ensuring his partner lands on Legado! Both men go down at ringside! Wes Lee streaks across the ring and dives out onto Legado! The four men get up and return to the ring. Mendoza with a reverse Hurricanrana in the ring on Lee. Carter comes in to make the save. Chaos erupts as the ref gives them a lot of lateral. Superkick onto Carter. Mendoza tags in Wilde, then pulls Carter up into a Fireman's Carry and holds him. Wilde hits a reverse modified Impaler (if I'm correct) on Wes Lee and attempts the cover. Wilde looks for perhaps a Shooting Star Press but Lee gets the knees up, and Lee rolls Wilde up. Mendoza has to drop Carter to make the save. Lee and Mendoza spill out of the ring. Carter catches an unsuspecting Wilde after a sequence of fast strikes and rolls him up for the win! Very good match with a face-paced second half and ending.
Your Winners and advancing to the Finals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, MSK!

Video Promo: Mercedes Martinez

We get a short video package, narrated by Martinez, showing off her future Retribution mask. She tells us that Toni Storm and Io Shirai aren't ready for her, and she's spent twenty years preparing for this moment. They face off in a triple threat for the NXT Women's Championship this Sunday at TakeOver: Vengeance Day.

Xia Li with Boa & Tian Sha vs Unnamed Opponent

We cut to the arena. The mysterious thousand-year-old Tian Sha sits on her throne, flanked by Boa and Xia Li. Li and Boa head halfway down the ramp. Boa presents Li with a katana, and she does a few air strikes to audition for the next Power Rangers show. She finally gives the sword to Boa and gets in the ring. Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter run down to the ring and try to talk to her, unsure of what changes she's going through. Xia Li ignores them and hits about four moves to finish her opponent--who is never named, not by announcer or title card---and easily picks up the squash win.
Your Winner, Xia Li!

After the Match: Mortal Combat?

Kayden and Kacy try to talk sense into Xia and get through to their friend. Kayden Carter heads up the ramp and confronts Tian Sha, who sits perched on the edge of her throne. he demands to know what she did to their friend. She repeatedly asks who Tian Sha is and what she's done to their friend. Xia attacks Kayden from behind, and throws her off to the side. Xia seems to then plead in her native language to Tian Sha, perhaps for mercy for Kayden? Tian somehow communicates an order to Xia, who runs down the ramp and attacks Kacy Catanzaro, too, leaving both KC's down on the ground as she and Boa flank Tian Sha.

Backstage with GM William Regal and Scarlett

We cut to the back and Regal's office. Scarlett sits upon his desk, legs crossed and wearing a silvery dress (unlike her usual odd, cool attire). She tells Regal that what she wants is for Kross to get a shot at the Cruiserweight title because when it comes to Santos, time's up. Regal agrees and next week, Karrion Kross fights Santos Escobar for the...Cruiserweight Championship. Okay. We go to break, with The Way arriving with Gargano in wheelchair and Theory hyped for his match.

In the Ring Promo: The Way

We return from break and see Austin Theory, Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell helping lift Gargano over the top rope and into the ring, where he's sat upon the top turnbuckle. Wade Barrett tells us on the announce team that Gargano's in a wheelchair and can't walk because he broke his arm. Yes, you read that right. Theory gets Gargano's chair in the ring then carries Gargano to it and sits him in it gently. The Way stand behind him, with his North American Championship in his lap. The crowd starts a "Johnny Wrestling" chant, to which Gargano tells them that they're being rude. Gargano tells us that he was trying to get Mackenzie (the interviewer) "not-fired" last week, Kushida attacked him without any provocation. The crowd starts a "you deserve it" chant to which Gargano chastises them and says he didn't deserve it. He then asks for a clip, and has Theory turn his wheelchair to face the Titantron. We see a clip of Kushida attacking Gargano last week. Johnny tells us that he broke his arm in multiple places, and he's a competitive power walker and uses his arms when he walks. Now he's stuck in a wheelchair and we all know how much he hates wheels (again, you read that right). The crowd starts a "Johnny Wheelchair!" chant and pisses off Gargano even more. Gargano demands on the mic that GM William Regal suspend Kushida indefinitely for his vicious attack on Gargano. He hears someone calls his name and asks who it is, and has Theory turn his wheel chair to face up the ramp. Regal comes out on a mic and tells Gargano to stop with this "ridiculous charade" as he was cleared by WWE medical yesterday to return to action. Gargano asks if he looks like "Dennis Charade-man" and then calls the WWE medical staff quacks. He says he went to his own doctor and got x-rays and discovered this--and demands an x-ray be put up on the screen. He accuses Kushida of breaking the "longest bone in (his) arm."
Regal looks at the x-ray and calls Gargano out on it being fake. He points out a tiny "R" on the x-ray on screen, and says that it means that its a scan of a right arm--and Garagno's got his left arm in a sling! Regal continues picking it apart. "Johnny, what's the name of that bone, please?" "It starts with a d- or something, okay? I don't know, I don't know, I'm Johnny Wrestling not Johnny Doctor!" Regal continues that if it were a real x-ray, he'd be in excruciating pain. Gargano counters that the "R" stands for "Real" and the x-ray says "John Gargano" so it's totally real, for real. Regal has had enough. He gives Gargano two options: either Austin Theory defends Gargano's North American Championship for him in the match tonight, or Gargano forfeits the title right now. Gargano is livid. He demands that he get a few weeks or few months off to heal, then he'll come back with new music and everything and be ready to fight. Regal says he has to consult with Kushida.
Gargano doesn't understand why Regal needs to consult with Kushida. Regal doesn't move and Gargano stares at him. Regal addresses the ring, asking "Kushida-san" what he thinks. Gargano doesn't know why Regal's asking him. Theory smirks and pats Kushida on the chest--then realizes it's Kushida standing next to him! Kushida snuck up behind The Way and stood with them! Kushida attacks Theory, punching him out of the ring. LeRae and Hartwell scatter. Kushida goes after Gargano, who can suddenly stand--and suddenly use his "injured" arm to block a punch! Kushida points it out then continues to attack Gargano. They're interrupted as Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon ride out on Shotzi's tank and we head to commercial with that match up next.

Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Semifinals Match: Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart vs The Way (Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell)

When we return from break, we start our first Women's Semifinals match. Hartwell isolates Blackheart and works her over with strong kicks and strikes. She tags in LeRae. Candice LeRae uses working holds to ground Shotzi Blackheart, and targets her assault on Shotzi's left arm. Candice hits a beautiful form of the Natural Selection and covers for a close two. Hartwell is tagged back in and drops Blackheart. Hartwell moves to the corner and sticks her tongue out at Moon, taunting her, before taking Blackheart back to The Way's corner and tagging in Candice LeRae. Wade Barrett mistakenly calls Candice LeRae "Candice Michelle" and mentions that she's been wrestling nineteen years. LeRae continues to work over Blackheart slowly, using working holds before attempted covers. It appears Shotzi and Ember have matching red face paint over their left eyes and temples. Moon hits the ring fast, taking out LeRae and Hartwell. Hartwell is legal. Moon with a running knee. Moon with a hard Irish Whip into the corner and tags Blackheart in. Shotzi with a springboard strike and an attempted cover. Shotzi pulls up Hartwell and slips up onto her shoulders, then leans back over the ropes for a form of a spider submission. Shotzi is distracted by Candice, and heads outside where LeRae sends her face-first into the announcer's table. Hartwell tags in LeRae. The Way take down both Blackheart and LeRae as we go to a picture-in-picture commercial break.
During the commercial, The Way utilize quick tags and isolate Ember Moon in their corner. They keep Moon grounded, using sleepers, arm holds, stiff strikes and kicks throughout the commercial break to keep her shut down. LeRae with a big punt-style kick. Hartwell is legal again, and continues the barrage of kicks and weardown holds. LeRae tags back in. Moon takes her down quick and dives over, tagging in Shotzi! Shotzi hits the ring all fired up, dropping LeRae's face onto her knee. LeRae rests against the middle rope and Shotzi rockets off the opposite ropes to come back and hit a hard running knee to the upper back. Shotzi attempts a cover but gets two. Blackheart tags in Moon, who drops LeRae and attempts a cover. Hartwell breaks it up. Hartwell and Blackheart fight, with Blackheart and Hartwell both down outside. LeRae looks for a tag after hitting a stunning strike on Ember, leaving her staggering. Hartwell quickly recovers and tags in. LeRae springboards off the middle rope as Hartwell holds Moon in position as if she were considering a Scorpion Death Drop (best way I can describe how she stood). Hartwell continues to work over Moon. Hartwell goes for a high kick as she tags LeRae in but accidentally hits LeRae. Ember escapes and tags in Shotzi. Candice drops Shotzi, then tags in Hartwell. Hartwell springboards off the top rope, nailing a diving elbow as LeRae held Shotzi's feet. LeRae exits and Hartwell covers, but only gets a two. Shotzi starts her comeback, whipping Hartwell into the corner and charging in to hit a middle rope-assisted DDT that looked sick. LeRae comes in but Ember Moon neutralizes her as she dives across to hit the Eclipse on LeRae! Shotzi heads up top and Hartwell crawls on top of LeRae, hoping to protect her friend despite the fact that Hartwell is apparently legal. Shotzi flies off the top and hits a senton bomb on top of both women! Shotzi shoves Hartwell over and covers her for the win!
Your Winners and advancing to the Finals of the Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic, Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart!

Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Finals Set

Ember Mion & Shotzi Blackheart will face Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez in the finals for the first-ever Women's Dusty Classic.

Backstage Promo: Timothy Thatcher & Tommaso Ciampa

Thatcher talks about the upcoming match with the Grizzled Young Veterans. Ciampa calls himself "Old Man Ciampa" as proof he reads our comments, I think. They promise to school the GYV as they defeat them and head on to the finals. Ciampa yells that class is dismissed, slaps his chair over and leaves. Thatcher smiles broadly with the most jacked-up teeth I've ever seen. We go to break.

Backstage Interview: Mackenzie with Legado del Fantasma

Santos is with Mackenzie, and she asks about his title defense next week. He tells us how great he is and how he'll defeat any challenger. Wilde & Mendoza come up and apologize to their boss for losing their match earlier. He tells them if they want to make it up to him, they can make sure Karrion Kross doesn't make it to next week. They nod and head off as we had off to:

Video Package: Finn Bálor and Pete Dunne

We get a promotional video package featuring clips of both Bálor and Dunne, and words from both, as each threaten each other ahead of their championship match this Sunday.

Match: Austin Theory with The Way vs Kushida

Apparently Regal's insistence earlier that Gargano forfeit, or let Theory defend the title in this match, is just not happening as this isn't a title match and the title belt is still around Gargano's waist. As the match starts, Gargano can suddenly walk again and hops up on the apron. The ref warns him and Theory uses the distraction to his a beautiful dropkick to take down Kushida. Kushida doesn't stay down for long and takes control early, using a cartwheel drop, a running arm drop, a suplex and several working holds to punish and ground Theory. Kushida pulls Theory's arms back behind him, with Theory face-down on the mat, and proceeds to stomp a hole in Theory's back while staring angrily at Gargano. Kushida takes Theory up and into a corner, and Theory starts to fight back. Theory with a forearm. Kushida stumbles back against the ropes. Kushida shuts his offense down fast, though, and drops Theory in the ring and locks in an arm submission. Theory screams as he locks eyes with his The Way partner, Gargano. Kushida pulls Theory's left arm up, behind Theory, and between Kushida's legs...then he slams his body back, snapping Theory's arm! Kushida pulls Theory up and continues to assault him with a long series of kicks, strikes, and a focused assault on Theory's left shoulder. Theory desperately attempts a clothesline but Kushida ducks under. Theory can't seem to land a move in as Kushida counters it all. That is, until Kushida leaps over the ropes, slipping off them and falling onto the apron. Theory lunges his body against the ropes twice, sending Kushida flying into the barricade and us to a commercial break!
We return from break and find Theory firmly in control, softening up Kushida per Vic Joseph with a series of clotheslines. Thoery pulls Kushida up and whips him into the ropes. Kushida leaps for a crossbody but Theory catches him, repositions and hits a great Fallaway Slam! Theory stands a foot on Kushida's chest and flexes his arms as he attempts a cover, but Kushida easily kicks out at one. Theory kneels and begins to hammer Kushida's head with fists. Gargano offers some advice to his young protege. Theory punches Kushida against the ropes, then rains fists down repeatedly as Kushida drops to his knees. Theory loses control and Kushida hits an Atomic Drop followed by a springboard back elbow. Theory charges Kushida, but Kushida hits a drop toe hold to send Theory face-first into the turnbuckle! Kushida gets two on a close pin attempt. Kushida tugs off his shirt, stands on Theory's neck, then changes his mind and drags Theory to his feet by his arm. Kushida hits one, two, three armbreakers! Kushida focuses on that injured arm. Theory fights back but Kushida takes control again, and drops to the apron. As Theory, at ringside, comes over to grab him, Kushida locks in an arm bar submission! Gargano's had enough and runs over, attacking Kushida and causing the DQ.
Your Winner by Disqualification, Kushida!

After the Match

Gargano and Theory beat down Kushida for a few moments as the ref yells at them. Gargano yells at Kushida and holds up the North American Championship, telling Kushida he'll never have it. Suddenly, Theory drops to the floor and is dragged under the ring! He yells for help from Gargano. Gargano rushes over and reaches under, grabbing his hands and closing his eyes as he grunts with effort to pull his friend out from the ring...only to see its Dexter Lumis! Lumis sends Theory into the ring when he crawls out. Kushida is up and attacks Theory! Gargano rushes in and Kushida catches him, locking a submission hold on his "injured" left arm! Theory attempts to break it up but Lumis slips into the ring and slides on a side headlock of his own on Theory! We end things with Gargano writhing in pain, Kushida standing strong, and Dexter holding Theory's head in his lap and calmly petting his head or something.

Video Promo: Toni Storm

Storm tells us that nine months ago, she was walking on a beach or something. We see her walking on a beach, then other clips of her. She tells us that she hates it when people put their noses in her business, as Mercedes Martinez has done when Toni went after Io. She tells Shirai and Martinez they're both on notice as it's Toni Time. We go to break.

Video Promo: Imperium

We're told Imperium is all about unity. Marcel Barthel, disciplined. Fabian Aichner is their equalizer who adapts and overcomes. Alexander Wolfe, formerly of SAnitY, is their newest addition and Walter, their leader, is the most dominant champion in NXT UK history. Together they are...Imperium. They say in unison that to them, the mat is sacred.

Backstage Promo: Karrion Kross

We cut to the back and see Joaquin WIlde and Raul Mendoza destroyed, under some wreckage in the back. Karrion Kross gets in the camera's face and tells Santos Escobar that he should be a man and handle business himself, like Karrion does. He warns Escobar that he's coming for him next week. Tick tock!

Outside the Arena/In Ring Promo: the new Cameron Grimes

We see Wade Barrett, Michael Cole's long-lost love child Vic Joseph, and the Glamazon Beth Phoenix as they start to talk about Kross. They hear a car horn honking and we cut to the parking lot. A nice sports car (sorry, not my specialty, its fancy though) drives up. Out wearing a row sports coat, hat, pants and boots and a gold watch is Cameron Grimes! He seems to have been repackaged into some sort of redneck Million Dollar Man gimmick. He gives out money as he makes his way into the arena and ring, just tossing cash around. He's wearing glasses, too, and gets on the mic. "Everybody, up on your feet! T here's a nice reward in it for everybody who gets up on their feet! That's right, Cameron Grimes is back, baby! Hahahaha! Now you know, two months ago I laid outside this very ring 'cause that no-good Timothy Thatcher, that MCL-snatcher, he took me out, he left me layin', I was screamin' and I was flailin'. So I went home adn did what every man would do. I thought how I was gonna come back and cave in to Timothy Thatcher! But know what, I'm not gonna sit here and say I trained the whole time. I had a little down time. And just like a normal man would do, I found these things called video games man. Turns out these video games are pretty freakin' cool man! ...I (wondered) why am I wrestling if I can play video games?" He tells us that he then went out and found a place called "GameStop" and its lights and video games interested him and--oh god, they're doing this aren't they?--he decided to invest his money in such a fine establishment. And it turns out he did it at the right time, as he's made bank. He's got so much money he doesn't know what to do with it. He tells us they're making money for dogs, something called a "dog coin" and he hates cats so he invested in "dog coin" too and made even more money. Now he's so rich he's richer than anybody, he claims as he excitedly hops up and down and yanks off his hat and jacket. He says he's the richest man in NXT. He's so rich that there's not anyone who can tell him anything now. "Mr. Regal, you think you're gonna tell me something? Well I'm gonna tell you something, you can kiss my grits!...You think I'm gonna wrestle Dexter Lumis, you can kiss my grits! You think I'm gonna wrestle zombies (long pause) you can kiss my grits! They say money is power! Well now, I've got so much money it ain't even that funny. it's hilarious," he says as he tosses his small wad of cash in the air and the mic. He hoops and hollers and heads off.

Video Promo: Io Shirai

And the third participant of this weekend's triple-threat match, Io Shirai, speaks. She tells her challengers that she will walk out Sunday as the champion. They end the promo with a cool shot of all three women together.

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Semifinals Main Event Match: the Grizzled Young Veterans vs Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher

We cut to the arena and Ciampa & Thatcher are ready in the ring. Out next are the GYV, who get on the mic at the top of the ramp. They tell them to take their fake friendship and "stick it all the way up your ass" and say that the Dusty Cup belongs to them. They continue to run off on the mouth until Ciampa and Thatcher slide out the ring and brawl with them outside the ring! Thatcher whips Drake into the steel rigging and Ciampa beats Gibson down into the mat. The match hasn't even begun yet. Ciampa grabs Drake and throws him over the barricade and into the crowd. Ciampa and Thatcher take Gibson into the ring, and Thatcher starts things off for his team as the ref calls for the bell. Thatcher drops Gibson and works on his left leg, then tags in Ciampa within moments. Ciampa with a leg pick. Ciampa locks in a left arm bar and tags Thatcher in, who comes in and punishes Gibson with stiff strikes and joint manipulation on Gibson's left shoulder. Finally, Drake is up in the corner. Drake catches Thatcher as he runs Gibson into the ropes and rocks his opponent. Gibson tags Drake in, and Drake starts to work Thatcher in the corner. Drake tags Gibson back in and Thatcher regains control, dropping Gibson with a big European Uppercut. Drake runs around outside the ring and attacks Ciampa, taking him off the apron. Gibson takes control in the ring and tags in Drake. They work together to double team Thatcher in the ring, then move outside together to double team Ciampa, dropping the former champ h ard to the floor. Ciampa rolls, holding his head as the ref checks on him and we go to picture-in-picture break!
When we return from break, Gibson is still in control over Thatcher. Thatcher's been unable to tag out as medical staff have been attending to Ciampa at ringside. Gibson with a big back drop and a pin attempt. We see Dusty Rhodes' image on the X-shaped tron/screen at the top of the ramp, in memory of the Legend. Gibson locks in a side headlock and holds it for a solid minute or so. Thathcher slowly gets to his feet, but Gibson immediatley hits a big forearm. Drake strikes Thatcher. Gibson beats down on Thatcher. Thatcher is lifted up onto Gibson's shoulder as Drake tags in. They set up for the Doomsday Device but Thatcher slips free and takes Drake off the top, sending him crashing to the mat before taking Gibson down. Ciampa suddenly pulls a John Cena, hops up on the apron, gets the tag in and runs around the ring, taking out both opponents with splashes, running lariats, a running crossbody, then a pair of snap German suplexes for both Gibson and Drake! Ciampa lifts up Gibson and runs, back body dropping Gibson onto Drake! There are lacerations on the back of Ciampa's head but he's still cleared to fight. Ciampa pulls up Drake and hits a few big chest slaps. Ciampa looks for the Fairy Tale Ending but Drake wisely drops to his knees, blocking it. Drake escapes and tags in Gibson.
Gibson with a few strikes but Ciampa fights back! Ciampa with a jumping knee. Gibson chops Ciampa in the throat then hits a long suplex. Both men are down. Ciampa crawls for Thatcher. Gibson tags in Drake; Drake runs across the ring, up Ciampa's back and leaps, connecting with a kick to Thatcher and sending Thatcher flying off the apron! Gibson comes in and helps set up for the Doomsday Device--and they connect and cover! Thatcher barely gets in the ring to make the save. We're now now three minutes into the overrun Drake and Thatcher brawl on the outside. The ref's simply quit enforcing tag rules. Gibson and Drake double team Ciampa and cover, picking up the win as Thatcher's down outside.
Your Winners and advancing to the Finals of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic to face MSK, Grizzled Young Veterans

In Closing

And that does it for an exciting episode of NXT! While I admittedly am not too big into tag team matches, these were all above average and quite entertaining. Very much worth watching if you have the time! That does it for us tonight--see you Friday for Smackdown! Stay warm, stay frosty, and stay safe!
