NXT In Your House 2022


Kickoff show --

McKenzie Mitchell and Sam Roberts were the hosts.

As they previewed the NXT North American Championship match, they were interrupted by Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams. Trick hyped up Hayes before Hayes put over Cameron Grimes as a talent -- despite that, Hayes said he would walk out tonight as champion.


Roderick Strong was training backstage. Ivy Nile approached and asked if Strong had calmed down after this past week. He had, but he's also dead serious about the Creed Brothers not living up to expectations. The Creeds showed up and said they'd make it happen. Damon Kemp said they were ready, and Strong said "they better be."


Edris Enofé and Malik Blade were brought to the desk to talk about tonight's tag title match, but Enofé instead opted just to hype them both up. Blade said the Creeds were the hardest working tag team in NXT 2.0. Enofé said Pretty Deadly were in trouble. Roberts called Pretty Deadly "gorgeous." Blade asked him "Why you bald?"


Mitchell and Roberts previewed the NXT Championship match to close the pre-show.



Main Show

As they ran down the card, Joe Gacy interrupted. "Were you expecting someone else?" was his question. I don't know why we would expect someone else, Joe, you're in the main event. He burned down the In Your House logo and laughed.


Before the match, a Tony D'Angelo video played where he talked about his responsibilities and power. They want to control the streets.

Eventually it was just D'Angelo and Escobar, taking each other out with simultaneous clotheslines. Elektra Lopez passed Escobar brass knuckles, but D'Angelo got a pipe. Wilde got the pipe and hit Stacks with it, but then D'Angelo got the brass knuckles and hit Wilde with them as a knocked-out Stacks fell onto Wilde for the pin.

Legado del Fantasma are now part of Tony D'Angelo's family.


An Alba Fyre video promo played. She talked about her Scottish heritage.


Lash Legend and other roster members were backstage watching. Lash wasn't impressed. Tatum Paxley was tired of the talk.


Mandy Rose pulled up to the arena alongside her stablemates and said "Ladies, let's do this."

Carter & Chance hit their assisted 450 splash, but Jayne pulled Carter to the floor on the cover attempt. Back in the ring, Jayne struck Carter and Dolin hit kind of a German suplex bridge for the win.

Choo locked on a sleeper, but Rose reached the ropes for a break. She tried to follow it up with a top-rope attack, but Rose pulled her down and hit Kiss the Rose for the win.


Tiffany Stratton and Roxanne Perez were backstage as the women in the finals of the NXT Breakout Tournament. Stratton was offended and said it was the "women's" tournament, not the "girls'" tournament. Perez said she worked too hard to lose.


NXT Tag Team Championships: The Creed Brothers (Brutus Creed & Julius Creed) defeated Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) (c) [15:26]

***1/2

Thumbs Up

If the Creed Brothers lose, they are out of the Diamond Mine.

Julius had the title in the ring, but instead of using it, Brutus planted Wilson and Julius hit an insane shooting star press and a sliding D for the win.



NXT Championship: Bron Breakker (c) defeated Joe Gacy [15:38]

***1/4

Thumbs

If Bron is disqualified, Gacy wins the championship.

Bron went right at Gacy, who kept trying to get in Bron's head. Gacy rolled to the floor after taking a spinebuster. On the outside, one of Gacy's druids got in Bron's face with a chair. Bron grabbed it, but the distraction was enough for Gacy to send Bron into the ring post.

Gacy targeted Bron's midsection and neck. We got a long extended heat segment with Gacy on top; Gacy continued to play mind games throughout. Eventually, Bron was able to send Gacy to the floor, but back inside the ring, Gacy leveled him with a lariat for two.

Eventually, Bron stopped a right hand and fired up with a comeback, concluding with a tope con giro. One of the druids hopped on the apron and distracted the official, and with his back turned, Gacy was passed a chair and did the Eddie flop as if he'd been hit by it. The official was about to disqualify Bron, but a second official ran out to stop him and explain the situation.

Bron downed Gacy with a lariat. He then speared Gacy off the apron through the announce table. Back inside, Bron hit his top-rope bulldog for a near fall. The chair got involved once again, and Bron thought about using it, but he instead passed it to the official. As the official got rid of the chair, Gacy hit Bron with a low blow for a close near fall.

By this point, Bron was infuriated. He grabbed the chair again, but instead smacked one of the druids with it and cut off Gacy with an awesome spear. The military press powerslam followed for the win.
