The 06/12/19 edition of WWE NXT, out of the APGFCU Arena in Bel Air, Maryland, just wrapped up. We’ve got the match results, as well as our overall thoughts on the show, for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about episode #510 of NXT by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.
Candice LeRae and Io Shirai vs. Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir (w/ Shayna Baszler)
Both Jessamyn Duke and Marina Shafir took turns working over Candice LeRae in the early half of the match. They utilized frequent tags and cut the ring in half, standard (but awesome) tag team wrestling stuff.
Shayna Baszler watched this match, but from the top of the ramp, which was kind of cool and different.
Io Shirai eventually got the hot tag and took out both Duke and Shafir with a springboard missile dropkick, and followed that up with a 619 to Duke. Io then did Baszler’s arm stomp deal, which really irked Baszler, who was still standing on the ramp.
The crowd loved it, though. Speaking of the crowd, they were hot all night. This show was tapped in Maryland, not Full Sail, and these folks were into all three matches.
Shirai went for her top rope moonsault, but Baszler dragged Duke out of the ring. This backfired, as Shirai moonsaulted off the top rope, to the floor, taking out both Baszler and Duke.
LeRae followed that up with a dive to the floor, which led to all five women brawling on the floor. Of course, the ref had no choice but to ring the bell at this point, ruling the match a no contest.
Winner: No Contest
Drew Gulak vs. Kushida
Author’s Note: This submission match between Drew Gulak and Kushida absolutely ruled but was a bit hard to document via text. So I recommend you go out of your way to watch it if you missed it.
Kushida took Gulak to the ground the moment the bell rang, and kind of had his way with him down there, if we’re being honest. Gulak, frustrated at this development, introduced striking into the match.
But Kushida got the best of him in that department, too.
Gulak eventually got things going via the Gory Special. He really got after Kushida’s arms while utilizing the hold, which just looked… not fun for Kushida.
Kushida fought his way back into the match and landed a pretty hip toss/dropkick combo. He followed that up with a running enziguri, then a tornado DDT, then an armbar, which Gulak eventually escaped via rope break.
Gulak locked Kushida in an ankle lock and actually stomped on his head during the hold, which was just nasty. Like Gulak did earlier, Kushida got the ropes to break the hold.
We closed things out with a nice striking exchange that ended with Kushida drilling Gulak with a handspring back elbow, then locking on the Hoverboard Lock, to get the win.
Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan vs. Undisputed Era (Kyle O’Reilly and Roderick Strong)
Oney Lorcan and Kyle O’Reilly came out the gate guns blazing for this one.
The two engaged in some huge striking sequences in the early moments of the match, and eventually Danny Burch and Roderick Strong joined in, with all four guys brawling in the ring at once. What a fun way to get this one going.
Once things finally settled down, O’Reilly and Strong worked over Lorcan pretty good, targeting his back for most of the attack. At one point, they hit some sort of gutbuster/diving knee drop combo on Lorcan, which looked awesome.
Lorcan eventually landed the running blockbuster on both guys to get to his corner, tagging in Burch, who went off on both O’Reilly and Strong. He planted O’Reilly with a headbutt/powerbomb combo, but O’Reilly kicked out of the pinfall attempt at two.
O’Reilly and Strong took out Burch with a chop/brainbuster combo, but Lorcan broke up the pinfall and saved the match.
Jaxon Ryker then showed up, and the distraction was enough for Burch to get the rollup and the win for his team.
Winner: Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan
