WWE NXT Quick Recap for Oct. 4, 2022
Matches Tonight: 7 (approx. 38 minutes)
- Singles Match: Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams vs Oro Mensah. Hayes won but Mensah was very impressive. The kid's going places. 8:16-8:21pm EST.
- North American Championship Qualifier Match: Von Wagner vs Andre Chase. Wagner won, advancing. 8:28-8:32pm EST.
- Singles Match: Lash Legend vs Wendy Choo. Choo picked up the win in short fashion. 8:39-8:43pm EST.
- Number One Contender's Match: Toxic Attraction vs Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark. This was originally billed as a six-woman match, but Alba Fyre and Mandy Rose were removed from it. Stark & Lyons picked up the win and will challenge KC2 (Katana Chance & Kayden Carter) for the titles at Halloween Havoc. 8:53-9:03pm EST.
- Singles Match: Julius Creed vs Duke Hudson. Creed squashed Hudson in seconds, then had a four-minute war-of-words with Damon Kemp (see below). 9:27-9:28pm EST.
- Debut Singles Match: Hank Walker(D) vs Xyon Quinn. Walker looked good but Xyon picked up the win. 9:41-9:43pm EST.
- NXT Tag Team Championship Main Event Match: Pretty Deadly(c) vs the Brawling Brutes. Pretty Deadly retained after IMPERIUM caused a distraction. 9:55-10:07pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
- The Brawling Brutes Return to NXT: Pretty Deadly opened with a bunch of pomp and circumstance and, ultimately, bragged that as they had no one left to beat, they should be awarded the tag titles permanently. Ridge Holland and "the Butcherweight" Pete Dunne, angered by Pretty Deadly's recent social media game, showed up and attacked them. 8:01-8:10pm EST.
- The Grayson Waller Effect: Tonight's guests: frenemies Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez. To sum it up, both women said mean things; Waller announced their Halloween Havoc rematch will be a "Spin the Wheel, Make the Deal" match. He spun the wheel tonight and they got a "Weapons Wild Match." They brawled afterwards; Apollo Crews drug Waller under the ring and when Waller escaped, his pants were torn up and his eyes were "bloody." 9:13-9:22pm EST.
- The Schism Grows: A new member joined Joe Gacy and the artists formerly known as the Grizzled Young Veterans. The person's identity wasn't revealed; it was hidden behind a mask and red hoodie with a black book bag.
- Extreme Rules: It's Saturday night so be there or be square. Groovy.
- Halloween Havoc Card Update: The North American Championship Ladder Match will have five opponents: Carmelo Hayes, Wes Lee, Oro Mensah, and Von Wagner will be joined by a fifth, TBD Superstar. Damon Kemp faces Julius Creed in an Ambulance Match; if Julius loses, Brutus Creed is gone from NXT (Kemp wants to torment Julius, hence the choice). JD McDonagh vs Ilja Dragunov vs Bron Breakker for the NXT Championship is official.
- Next Week on NXT: Bron Breakker vs "Big Body Javi" Javier Bernal. Axiom vs Nathan Frazer in the final match of their best-of-three series. Wes Lee vs Channing "Stacks" Lorenzo.
