WWE NXT Quick Recap for 6/29/2021

Matches Tonight:
  • Women's Number One Contender Triple-Threat Tag Team Match: Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart vs Io Shirai & Zoey Stark vs Dakota Kai & NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez. The winning team will face Women's Tag Team Champions the Way at the Great American Bash for the titles. Great match, totally worth watching. Io Shirai & Zoey Stark picked up the win and will face the Way for the titles at Great American Bash next week. 8:06-8:20pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Roderick Strong of the Diamond Mine vs Asher Hale. Strong dominated the short, mediocre match. 8:32-8:39pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Cameron Grimes vs Eric Sterling. Short match but an incredible offensive effort from Sterling, who looks half Jeff Hardy and half MSK. 8:48-8:51pm EST.
  • Mixed Tag Team Match: Tian Sha (Xia Li & Boa w/ Mei Ying) vs Mercedes Martinez & Jake Atlas. What started as an excellent mixed tag match was cut to an early end after Xia Li apparently injured Mercedes Martinez. The ref called for the bell off-camera, and the cameras never returned to Martinez. Martinez took a vicious roundhouse to the back and side of her head. 9:17-9:23pm CST.
  • North American Championship Main Event Match: Bronson Reed(c) vs Isaiah "Swerve" Scott w/ Hit Row. A slow match that saw Swerve defeat Reed for the title, due to interference and assistance from Ashanti "Thee" Adonis, B-Fab, and Top Dolla. 9:44-10:03pm CST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Battery Tracker: Our battery charged from 60-61% at 8:37pm. At 9:12pm, it advanced from 70-71%. At 9:42pm, it advanced from 80-81%.
  • Reminder: the Great American Bash is live, next week!
  • A lot of work was put in miscellaneous, but not noteworthy, segments building the hype for next week's Great American Bash.
  • War of Words: NXT Tag Team Champions MSK had a sit-down talk with their opponents, Timothy Thatcher & Tommaso Ciampa, from next week's Great American Bash. Both teams showed a modicum of respect, but things certainly heated ahead of their match.
  • Injury Report: During the mixed match, Xia Li connected with a savage roundhouse to the back and side of Mercedes Martinez. The ref called for the bell off camera without a pin or submission and the camera remained off Martinez completely, focusing on Boa and Xia Li, as officials checked on Martinez. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers, if that's your jam.
  • Great American Bash Matches Announced: NXT Women's Champions the Way vs Io Shirai & Zoey Stark for the titles; "the Million Dollar Megastar" LA Knight defends his Million Dollar Championship against Cameron Grimes--with the condition that if Grimes loses, he becomes Knight's Virgil, his butler. We'll also have Raquel Gonzalez defending her title (not yet named) and NXT Tag Team Champions MSK will defend against Timothy Thatcher & Tommaso Ciampa.
