With the holiday season upon us, WWE has recorded two editions of NXT that will air on December 19 and 26.
A busy week for the NXT crew ultimately saw three editions of weekly TV taped following the Deadline event that saw ‘Dirty’ Dominik Mysterio lose his NXT North American Championship to Dragon Lee.
- Fallon Henley defeated Tiffany Stratton. After the match, Stratton attacked Henley as they fought to the back, with Stratton dumping the contents of a trash can on Henley.
- Ilja Dragunov came out for a promo on what he accomplished in 2023 and what he planned to do for 2024. Ridge Holland came out and told Dragunov that he wasn’t looking for a match now, but wanted to win some matches to get a shot at Dragunov. In response, Dragunov said they didn’t have to wait and could do the match tonight.
- Trick Williams confronted Dragunov backstage and wanted to know why he was giving Holland a match. Dragunov told Williams that he was the challenger at New Year’s Evil, and the champion picks his matches.
- Lexis King defeated Dion Lennox in a Men’s Breakout Tournament first-round match. After the match, Trey Bearhill came out but King escaped.
- Izzi Dame and Kiana James defeated Jacy Jayne and Thea Hail. Hail was pinned by Dame after Hail had James in the kimura, but James wasn’t the legal person in the match. Riley Osborne was in the crowd watching the match.
- Roxanne Perez was giving her thoughts on the previous tag team match when Arianna Grace responded to Perez’s comments. Perez ended up slapping Grace.
- Dragon Lee defeated Charlie Dempsey and Joe Coffey in a three-way match to retain the North American Championship. Before the match started, Gallus came out and Coffey added himself to the match. The rest of Gallus was sent to the back during the match. Lee got the pin on Dempsey. After the match, the No Quarter Catch Crew attacked Lee but Joaquin Wilde and Cruz Del Toro made the save.
- There was a Trick Williams/Carmelo Hayes segment in the locker room.
- Cora Jade in a backstage segment took back her locker, which now belongs to Karmen Petrovic. Jade ended up throwing the contents of Petrovic’s locker out. Petrovic then came into the locker room and asked what happened, with Gigi Dolin telling Petrovic that Jade did it.
