The September 4 2019 edition of WWE NXT and NXT UK went down this past Wednesday. Listed below are the 5 best moments from the shows.
Rhea Ripley Proves Herself in a Match Against Piper Niven
Though Rhea Ripley recently picked a fight with NXT Women’s Champion, Shayna Baszler, she had already started a feud with Piper Niven, and was in fact bested the last time they stepped in the ring together. Not one to take a loss lying down, Ripley returned to the red and gold brand this week on NXT UK to pick up where she left off.
After a hard-fought match, Ripley took the victory with her Riptide, but now that they are 1-1 in wins, Rhea will no doubt compete in a third match with Niven to prove once and for all that she is the better woman before focusing her full attention on Baszler.
Breezango Debut New Look
Fandango recently returned to NXT TV from injury, reuniting with Tyler Breeze while saving him from an imminent beatdown, and Breezango have been on a roll ever since.
But while Fandango was away, he had some ideas about what the new Breezango should look like. So to avoid committing the ultimate crime of becoming unfashionable, Fandango and Breeze debuted a brand new look and entrance theme this week on NXT.
And to make it even better, Dango and Breeze defeated Team 3.0, Chase Parker and Matt Martel, in their new duds.
Roderick Strong Sends a Message to The Dream
Things were going Velveteen Dream’s way this week. He looked great in his velvet salmon tights, he handily defeated Kona Reeves, and he was excited to get back to his favorite spot: the couch that he regally rolls out on when he feels the need to make an appearance but isn’t featured in a match.
But Dream didn’t know that his great day would soon come crashing down thanks to Undisputed Era’s Roderick Strong. Just as he was celebrating his win over Reeves, Strong appeared on the big screen.
Determined to get Dream’s attention, Roderick Strong revealed that he had more than a few words to show Dream how serious he was. He had set Dream’s purple couch ablaze. Velveteen was visibly furious, but it was too late. However, his inability to save his couch will only fuel his determination to bring Strong down.

Bianca Belair Tries Her Hand Against the EST of NXT
In an effort to fight her way back into the title picture, Bianca Belair took on Taynara Conti, knowing that a victory under her belt, particularly against the Brazilian black belt, would help her build her case for another shot at the NXT Women’s Championship.
Taynara Conti put up a hell of a fight, but Bianca Belair emerged victorious in the end after a moonsault and a forearm followed by her devastating K.O.D. finisher.
And this defeat almost immediately won her exactly what she had been looking for, as General Manager William Regal soon announced that in two weeks, Belair would be competing in a Triple Threat Match against Io Shirai and Mia Yim to determine which woman would be the next to challenge Shayna Baszler.
Jordan Myles Cashes in His Chance at the NXT Championship
After beating out 7 of NXT’s brightest new Superstars to become the winner of the Breakout Tournament, Jordan Myles laid claim to the prize of a chance at Adam Cole’s NXT Championship.
And this week on NXT, Myles cashed in this opportunity and stood across the ring from Adam Cole in an NXT Championship Match. Adam Cole made it clear that he did not take Myles seriously from the very start, but was made to regret the assumption that Myles wasn’t a formidable opponent almost instantly.
Jordan Myles wasted no time showing Cole exactly why he was the one to stand out above the rest. He not only took Cole by surprise with his arsenal of hard-hitting offense but also powered out of every attempt Cole made to take him down.
Myles ultimately succumbed to Cole’s Last Shot, but despite not becoming the new NXT Champion, Myles proved to both to Cole and the entire NXT Universe that he is championship-worthy.
