NXT Quick Recap for 11/18/2020
For those of you who want just the quick results and don't want the details of matches, this is a quick recap of tonight's show. There are spoilers for tonight's show below.
- Leon Ruff retained his North American Championship against Johnny Gargano. Damian Priest attempted to distract Gargano, then caused the DQ win by telling Ruff "I'm sorry" before sucker punching him.
- Dexter Lumis presumably won a Blindfold Match against Cameron Grimes. Somewhat funny match but worth watching. Grimes ran away while the ref was unconscious, leaving Lumis as the presumptive winner. Awaiting word from the courts before I can certify this result.
- Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell defeated the team of Kayden Carter & Kacy Catanzaro.
- Kushida defeated Hoohas. Note: They never showed the new competitor's name on screen, and closed captioning showed it as "Who Has." So I'm aware I'm butchering the spelling of it. I've googled and checked the NXT Roster and haven't found him listed. If you know this person's name, please comment below and I'll correct it and credit you.
- Ember Moon & Toni Storm defeated Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai in a lengthy, but solid match. Afterwards, Moon & Storm were ambushed by LeRae & Hartwell, teasing a Kai/Gonzalez/LeRae/Hartwell women's team for WarGames.
- Timothy Thatcher defeated his former student Austin Gray by submission. After the match, Tommaso Ciampa made his way out to ring and Thatcher backed off, yelling he had no problem with Ciampa.
- Damian Priest was set for a match against an unnamed opponent. The match never happened as Gargano, then Ruff, both attacked Priest and all three battled it out for a couple of minutes.
- Our Main Event tonight was for the NXT Women's Championship. In a very long, and very solid match that likely saw both women banged up, Shirai retained her title over Ripley. Ripley was bleeding heavily from her ear and there was a scare earlier on in the match. If Shirai doesn't have a concussion tonight, I'll be shocked. I highly recommend watching this match. Best Women's match on any brand in a long time!
- Finn Balor came out to address the NXT Universe. The "Kings of the Ring"--Pat McAfee, Pete Dunne, and NXT Tag Team Chamions Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch--came out and cut a great promo. They threatened to gang up on Finn Balor until he announced he didn't come alone--and the Undisputed Era showed up. All four members brawled with the Kings of the Ring, and our program ended with Cole having the upper hand over Pat McAfee. I highly recommend watching this, too, if you can!
