WWE NXT

The March 7th, 2018 episode of WWE NXT just wrapped up. We’ve got the match results as well as our thoughts on the show for you to check out below. Let us know what you thought about this episode of WWE NXT by tweeting us, @TheRumbleRamble.


 

Authors of Pain vs. TM61

 

We kicked off the show with the first match of the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. TM61 came to the ring to take a second shot at bringing down the Authors of Pain. This was the finale of the last Classic, somehow it’s fitting for it to be the first match this time around.

What a great start to the tournament. TM61 are ultra talented and the more we learn about them, the more I like them. Authors of Pain have improved steadily since their debut and can now hold their own with pretty much anyone.

Despite the size difference, this was an even match with each team getting multiple near falls on the other. Not to mention the TM61 guys are nuts, so there were plenty of killer spots, including Shane Thorne getting powerbombed out of the ring onto the apron.

The Authors of Pain overpowered their opponents in the end and won the match with The Last Chapter.

Winner: Authors of Pain


 

Pete Dunne / Roderick Strong / The Undisputed Era

 

Pete Dunne was shown being interviewed upon his entrance to the arena, where he said that the UK Championship would be staying right where it belongs – with him. Roderick Strong came into the picture and stared Dunne down, but before they could really get into it, The Undisputed Era interrupted.

The five of them had a face-off before Regal broke it up.


 

Bianca Belair vs. Pink Pants

 

Yet another squash match between Bianca Belair and enhancement talent. She has been building confidence as they build her up storyline-wise and we are excited to see her in competitive matches soon.

Winner: Bianca Belair


 

Lacey Evans / Shayna Baszler Interview

 

Lacey Evans was being interviewed backstage when Shayna Baszler cut in. Evans didn’t stick around and Baszler went on to throw shade at Ember Moon for dodging her lately. We didn’t see Ember, so we guess she’s not ready to face Baszler again quite yet.


 

Tommaso Ciampa

 

Tommaso Ciampa came to ringside, crutch in hand, while the entire audience chanted “you suck” and “we want Johnny” at him. Not sure why he’s carrying that crutch around, as he doesn’t even use it anymore, just drags it behind him. Maybe it’s his version of the sledgehammer now.

He stood in the ring with the mic in his hand, but stayed quiet, letting the crowd boo as loudly as they could for what felt like several minutes. He threw the microphone and started to get out of the ring, but seemed to hesitate and got back in, then decided for sure that he wasn’t going to bless the crowd with his voice and started to walk backstage. On his way back, however, he saw a Johnny Wrestling sign. And Tommaso Ciampa does not like Johnny Wrestling. He snatched the sign from the fan holding it, ripped it in half, then beat it with his crutch.


 

Aleister Black vs. Killian Dain

 

This match was awesome from start to finish. Killian Dain attempted to catch his opponent off-guard by slamming into Black in a hot start to the match. Black answered with a Nephilim to the floor. And that was just the first few minutes. Neither man pulled any punches and threw everything they had at each other (literally, I think Aleister Black used every move in his repertoire).

Bringing down The Beast of Belfast was no small feat, but after a hard-fought battle, Black got the pin with his lethal Black Mass kick.

Winner: Aleister Black
