WWE NXT Quick Recap for August 31, 2021

Matches Tonight: Seven
  • Singles Match: Mandy Rose w/ Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jane vs Sarray. Great back-and-forth match that ended awkwardly with Sarray connecting a low dropkick to Rose's face. Rose, towel over her face, was escorted to the back by her friends, causing a count-out win for Sarray. 8:04-8:12pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Duke Hudson vs Kyle O'Reilly. Great match that showcased Hudson's power. O'Reilly picked up the win ten minutes in with a leg bar submission. 8:21-8:31pm EST.
  • Tag Team Match: Imperium vs Drake Maverick & Grayson Waller. Short match. Grayson Waller debuted but didn't follow veteran Maverick's advice, and Imperium proved dominant. 8:51-8:55pm EST.
  • Singles Main Event Match: Johnny Gargano w/ InDex vs LA Knight. Knight picked up the win after an excellent match that saw Lumis twice intervene to protect Gargano, without causing interference. 9:04-9:20pm EST.
  • Single Non-Title Match: NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez vs Jessi Kamea w/ Franky Monet & Robert Stone. Short match that saw our Women's Champ come out on top. 9:26-9:28pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Roderick Strong w/ the Diamond Mine vs Ikemen Jiro. Strong won a short, but fast-paced and energetic match. 9:41-9:44pm EST.
  • Singles Main Event Match: Tommaso Ciampa w/ Timothy Thatcher vs Ridge Holland w/ Dunne, Lorcan & Burch. Great, physical match that saw Ciampa prove victorious. MSK made the save from a potential beatdown post-match. 9:54-10:06pm EST.

Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • In the Ring Promo: New NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov. Dragunov is constantly interrupted by huge chants and often can't contain his smile. He announced that he will be back to NXT someday, but now he's got to go show the world what an NXT UK Champion truly is. 8:40-8:43
  • Next Week on NXT: MSK defend their tag titles against Lorcan & Burch; Mei Ying will have her in-ring debut. Ember Moon faces Kay Lee Ray in KLR's NXT match debut. Also, the NXT Women's Tag Team Championships will be on the line as well.
  • More Minors: The Diamond Mine debuted two new members, the Creed Brothers (formerly known as the Kasper Brothers).
