The John Report: WWE NXT Heatwave 2024 Review

WWE NXT Heatwave 2024

This is WWE NXT Heatwave featuring Trick Williams, Ethan Page, Shawn Spears & Je’Von Evans in a 4-way for the NXT Title, plus Roxanne Perez against Lola Vice, and more.

It’s the fourth WWE NXT PLE of 2024. Normally NXT PLE shows are every two months. However, this is just four weeks after the Battleground PLE from last month.

During the Countdown show, there was a match that saw Karmen Petrovic and Arianna Grace defeat Jacy Jayne and Jazmyn Nyx. Let’s get to it.

NXT Heatwave
From Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Sunday, July 7, 2024

There was an opening video package hyping up all of the key matches on the show.

They showed arrivals from earlier in the day. Wrestlers shown arriving were Ethan Page and NXT Champion Trick Williams.

It was Vic Joseph and Booker T on commentary as usual for the NXT brand.

NXT North American Championship: Oba Femi vs. Wes Lee

There’s a big size difference here with Femi weighing over 130 pounds more than Lee.

Lee got some offense going with some kicks while also avoiding a charging Femi. Lee did a springboard kick. Femi caught a leaping Lee and Femi punched Lee off the turnbuckle to the floor. Lee hit a springboard dropkick, but Femi came back with a punch to the gut. Femi tossed Lee in the air for a spinning slam. That drew a big reaction leading to a “holy shit” chant. Lee tried to fight back, but Femi shoved him over the top to the floor so that Lee was against the commentary table. Femi tossed Lee face first into the side of the ring apron where the steel beam is on the side of the ring. Back in the ring, Femi hit a running uppercut followed by a backbreaker. Femi did a running shoulder tackle to the ribs. Femi stepped on Lee’s back and we know Lee had back surgery. Femi continued to work on the back with another backbreaker and toss to the ground. Femi whipped Lee into the turnbuckle. When Femi tried to send Lee across the ring, Lee collapsed to the mat to sell it. Femi set up Lee upside down against the turnbuckle, but Lee was able to avoid a charge and Femi hit the turnbuckle. Lee superkicked Femi. Femi tried to toss Lee out of the ring, but Lee used his momentum to send Femi out of the ring. Femi was on the apron where he hit a charging Lee with hard chop to the chest. Booker: “Like a fly swatter, man!” Yep. Just like that.

They were back in the ring where Femi gave Lee a backbreaker. Femi stretched Lee’s back across Femi’s knee. Femi did another hard chop to the chest for a two count. Vic Joseph dropped some Eminem “Lose Yourself” lyrics as Lee made the comeback with an upkick along with punches and a running forearm. Lee hit a jumping kick followed by a Tornado DDT for two. Lee nailed Femi with a forearm followed by Lee doing a suicide dive with a forearm. Lee dove onto Femi on the floor again. Femi was back in the ring. Lee jumped onto Femi, who caught him and Lee managed to counter a power move into a hurricanrana for two. Lee hit the Meteora double knees to the back of the neck. Lee tried an attack off the top rope, but Femi stopped that with an uppercut to the chest. Ouch. That got a two count. Femi went for a Powerbomb off the turnbuckle, but Lee was able to counter it and send Femi’s face into the mat. Lee bounced off the ropes with the Cardiac Kick for just a two count. That is Lee’s finisher and Femi kicked out of it. Lee went up top where jumped off with a Frog Splash, but Femi grabbed him by the throat. Femi clotheslined Lee by the ropes, Lee managed to hang onto the ropes and Femi caught Lee on the floor leading to a shoulderbreaker. Lee stomped on Femi’s back when they got in the ring. Femi went for a lifting move, Lee landed on his feet and kicked Femi in the body. Femi caught a leaping Lee and tossed Lee across the ring. Femi hit the Popup Powerbomb sitout style into the pin for the one…two…and three. Femi retains the title at 16:19.

Winner by pinfall: Oba Femi

Analysis: **** This was an excellent match! The dominant title reign of Oba Femi continues while Wes Lee put up an incredible fight. Lee got his ass kicked throughout the match, yet he kept on coming back for more and that’s what makes Lee so easy to like. Lee is so gifted in the ring. There’s nothing he can’t do offensively and he sells at an elite level. As for Femi, the guy hasn’t even had 20 televised matches in his career and he’s had four-star level matches at multiple PLE shows. Femi looks impressive doing moves, but the key thing is that he is selling moves very well for a bigger guy too. You have to be able to sell to tell the story that the smaller guy can beat you and Femi did that very well. I liked the finish with both guys looking fatigued, yet Femi was able to overpower Lee with a toss across the ring followed by the Powerbomb for the win.

Oba Femi celebrated the win as the NXT North American Champion while Lee was frustrated about the loss. Lee’s loss means that he can’t challenge for the NXT North American Title as long as Femi holds it.

There were some commercials for various WWE things.

Lola Vice was shown arriving earlier in the day. The NXT Women’s Champion Roxanne Perez was also shown arriving earlier in the day.

A video aired to set up the Kelani Jordan-Sol Ruca match.

NXT Women’s North American Championship: Kelani Jordan vs. Sol Ruca

They are both babyfaces who have a lot of athleticism. Each woman has only been wrestling for a few years (Jordan had her tryout two years ago), but they are already very impressive this early in their careers.

The match started with the two women doing a gymnastics routine where they barely touched eachother while doing flips. It was apparently lifted from a Ricochet-Will Ospreay match several years ago. Sol did a backflip off the top and Jordan hit a cross body block. Sol went for a facebuster, but Jordan blocked it with her hands and Jordan got a backslide for two. Sol hit an X-Factor facebuster for a two count. Sol applied a surfboard submission to Jordan, who didn’t give up, so Sol let go of the move. Jordan hit Sol with a forearm and an armdrag. Jordan did a hurricanrana to send Sol out of the ring. Jordan hit a twisting dive over the top onto Sol on the floor. Jordan hit sitout jumping DDT for a two count. Jordan teased a move off the ropes, but Sol avoided it leading to a kick. Sol hit two cross body blocks in a row. Sol did a springboard somersault into a clothesline for two. That’s incredibly athletic. Jordan and Sol exchanged forearms. Jordan blocked a kick leading to Jordan doing a spin kick. Jordan hit a Poison Rana to spike Sol on her head leading to Sol going to the floor. Jordan hit a moonsault onto Sol on the floor. Sol was on the apron with a running kick to the chest. Sol did a moonsault off the middle turnbuckle onto a standing Jordan on the floor. Both women got back in the ring right before the ten count.

Sol went for a body slam in the ring, but Jordan countered into a cover for two. Sol got a two count of her own. They each got nearfalls after that. Sol countered a Jordan move leading to a Powerbomb for two. The fans chanted “this is awesome” for the women. Sol went for a move off the turnbuckle, but Jordan knocked her down with an elbow. Jordan went for a 450 Splash off the top, but Sol got the knees up to block. Sol went for the Soul Snatcher and Jordan countered it by pulling on the leg leading to a slam. Jordan went for the Poison Rana, Sol blocked it and Sol slammed Jordan face first into the top turnbuckle. Sol tried something off the middle turnbuckle, but Jordan countered it with a Poison Rana! Jordan hit the One of a Kind split-legged moonsault for the pinfall win at 11:37.

Winner by pinfall: Kelani Jordan

Analysis: ***3/4 This was an exciting, fast-paced matchup between two very athletic women. I know they are both great athletes and I was excited to see this match, but I didn’t realize they would have a match that was as good as this. They are both so talented considering their experience level. Ruca makes everything look so easy like doing a somersault before hitting a clothesline after jumping off the top rope. That’s so hard to do, but Ruca can pull it off. Jordan did a lot of counters in the match like the Poison Rana multiple times including that big one off the turnbuckle.

After the match, Jordan picked up Ruca and raised her hand. Jordan celebrated with the title. The fans cheered them both.

There were some commercials for various WWE things.

A video aired from the Gallus boys Joe Coffey, Mark Coffey & Wolfgang issued a warning to Tyson & Tyriek. Wolfgang said that they were miles ahead of them in terms of experience. Joe said that the athleticism of Tyriek & Tyson doesn’t matter. Joe said they’ll see them on Tuesday.

A clip was shown from the pre-show when Arianna Grace and Karmen Petrovic got the win in their tag team match.

Ava the NXT GM congratulated Arianna Grace & Karmen Petrovic on their victory. Grace said she gave the people of Toronto what they needed. Karmen said she got the win. Grace said she was the real MVP of the match. Grace said that it’s the last time they will tag together. Ava booked a match between Karmen and Grace on NXT this Tuesday. Grace told Ava it was sickening to have two tag team partners face eachother, which is funny because Grace said she didn’t want to team with Karmen again.

They showed Lola Vice getting ready for her match. Ethan Page was also getting ready for his match later.

NXT Tag Team Championships: Nathan Frazer & Axiom vs. Chase U – Andre Chase & Duke Hudson (w/Riley Osborne & Thea Hail)

There isn’t much of a story here. Chase U earned the title shot. Both teams are babyfaces.

Axiom started with Chase doing some mat wrestling with neither guy getting the advantage. Axiom hit a dropkick. Axiom and Chase exchanged pin attempts leading to two counts. Chase hit a dropkick. Frazer tagged in, so Chase took him down with an armdrag. Frazer did an enziguri kick to Chase and big man Duke tagged in. Duke gave Frazer a belly-to-belly suplex across the ring. Duke chopped Frazer hard in the chest. Chase hit an uppercut, but Frazer came back with a kick. Axiom got a kick leading to some quick strikes and a DDT got a two count for Axiom. Chase and Axiom exchanged holds leading to Axiom clotheslined Chase to the back of the head. Frazer back in with a jumping kick. Axiom with a suplex on Chase and Frazer/Axiom did a double superkick leading to Frazer getting a two count. Frazer tried an attack off the top, but Chase hit a move like a Side Effect slam. Axiom stopped Chase from tagging out leading to Axiom going for an armbar, but Chase turned it into a pin attempt. When Chase went for a roundhouse kick, Axiom caught the foot leading to a leglock submission. Chase sent Axiom crashing into the turnbuckle, so Frazer tagged in. Duke tagged in leading to some rope running leading to a double clothesline. Duke did the punch combo leading to an elbow smash on both opponents. Duke did a uranage slam on Axiom and launched Frazer into the air. Duke hit a senton/gutbuster combo on both opponents at the same time for a two count. Frazer dropkicked Duke out of the ring. Frazer charged at Duke on the floor, but Duke stopped that with a forearm. Duke did an impressive leap leading into a German Suplex across the ring. Frazer countered a Duke move to send Duke face first into the turnbuckle. Axiom back in with a top rope hurricanrana. Frazer and Axiom each hit dives on their opponents two times in a row. Back in the ring, Axiom hit a Frog Splash off the top on Duke. Frazer tagged in and hit a springboard 450 Splash on Duke for two. Frazer was on the top rope so Duke did a Trish Stratus-like move doing a handstand off the ropes leading to a headscissors. Duke hit a spinning sidewalk slam on Frazer for two. The fans were chanting “this is awesome” for this match that certainly deserves it. Chase tagged in, Frazer shoved him off the top rope and Hudson tagged himself back in. Frazer headbutted Duke down followed by a springboard missile dropkick. Axiom hit a Spanish Fly on Duke off the top rope while Frazer made the tag before the move. Frazer hit the Phoenix Splash off the top, but Chase was there to break up the pin and Chase hit a Canadian Destroyer on Axiom! Wow. What a sequence of moves. That was incredible. The fans were chanting “this is awesome” again. All four guys were down selling for a few minutes.

Axiom tagged in against Chase as they exchanged strikes. Chase hit a running boot to Axiom’s face. Frazer was in illegally, Chase kicked both guys and then Frazer accidentally superkicked Axiom. Duke knocked Frazer out of the ring while Chase did a rollup on Axiom for one…two…no! That was so close. The fans were chanting “NXT” for them. Chase did a Russian legsweep on Axiom followed by the Chase U stomp routine with the fans chanting along with it. Chase went up top and hit a cross body block for two on Axiom because Frazer made the save. Chase lifted Axiom, who broke free and Frazer tagged in. Frazer jumped off the top, Chase avoided a move and then Frazer went up top for a superplex and brainbuster while Axiom did a superkick. Frazer did a somersault dive over the top onto Duke on the floor. Axiom hit the Golden Ratio kick on Chase for the pinfall win. It went 16:50.

Winners by pinfall: Nathan Frazer & Axiom

Analysis: ****1/4 This was another awesome match on this show. They were given enough time to really take it to that next level and put on a very entertaining match. The action was fast-paced and the final few minutes were very exciting. There were so many “this is awesome” and “NXT” chants because the fans loved the match. I have mentioned for a few months that the men’s tag team division hasn’t been that hot in NXT in recent months, but this was the best NXT tag team match this year most likely. These teams really worked well together and clicked out there. Frazer and Axiom are incapable of having a bad match because they are so talented in the ring while Chase & Duke are talented veterans who did a terrific job as well. I hope the champions get an actual feud soon, but as long as the matches are this good, I’m not going to complain about the tag team division issues. I really enjoyed this match and I think the fans in Toronto did too.

Wes Lee was interviewed backstage. Wes said that tonight was supposed to culminate with him regaining the NXT North American Title, but he failed. Lee said that Oba Femi was the better man tonight. Lee said he’s at a loss for words and he’ll see us on Tuesday. Lee said he’ll see us on Tuesday.

There were some more commercials for some WWE things. There were also videos about NXT talents like Josh Briggs, Carlee Bright and Dante Chen.

It was announced that NXT Great American Bash will take place on Tuesday, August 6th on Syfy for those of you in the US. That’s because USA Network will be showing the Summer Olympics.

They showed Je’Von Evans and Shawn Spears getting ready for their main event NXT Title match.

A video package aired for Roxanne Perez’s NXT Women’s Title defense against Lola Vice. This feud turned Vice into a babyface because Perez is a cocky heel champion.

NXT Women’s Championship: Roxanne Perez vs. Lola Vice

Perez slapped Vice in the face, so Vice shoved her down. Vice went for an armbar early, but Perez shifted her weight for a two count. Vice hit Perez with a few knees to the body. Perez bailed to the floor to avoid the back fist. Vice dove onto Perez on the floor. Back in the ring, Perez sent Vice hard into the ropes. Vice came back with a rollup. Perez did a hair whip takedown. Perez used the ropes for some choking on Vice. Perez hit a Russian legsweep for two. Vice countered a move leading to a knee to the ribs. Perez got a rollup for two. Vice came back with two kicks to the body along with a few more quick kicks. Vice hit a running hip attack followed by a kick to the back for two. Vice punched Perez in the ribs. Perez avoided a charging attack and Perez hit an uppercut. Perez countered a move into a pin attempt. Vice applied a rear naked choke with a body scissors, but Perez left the ring and Perez backed Vice into the commentary table. Vice got back up and went for a spinning back fist, Perez moved and Vice hit the ring post. Perez suplexed Vice so that she landed on her right arm. Back in the ring, Perez stomped on Vice’s right arm. Perez wrenched back on the right arm leading to a two count. Perez did a double knee drop on the right arm. Vice avoided a knee drop on the arm. Perez hit a belly-to-back suplex. Perez went for a moonsault, Vice moved and Perez hit the mat. Vice blocked a back fist and then Vice hit a spinning back fist to knock Perez out of the ring. Vice was selling her right hand injury. Back in the ring, Vice covered for two because Perez got her foot on the bottom rope. Perez sent Vice’s right arm into the turnbuckle. Vice came back with several kicks to the body. Vice went for the backfist, Perez avoided it and Perez hit Pop Rox for one…two…no! Vice kicked out at two. Perez tossed Vice out of the ring. Perez cleared off the commentary table. Perez gave Vice the Pop Rox on the commentary table, which didn’t break. The fans chanted “holy shit” for that. Back in the ring, Perez covered for just two. Perez applied the Crossface submission on the injured right arm. Perez hit Pop Rox again. A fourth Pop Rox didn’t look good, so Perez hit Pop Rox for a fifth time for the one…two…and three. It went 13:07.

Winner by pinfall: Roxanne Perez

Analysis: ***1/4 A very good match that put over Vice as somebody who was tough to beat because Perez had to do her finishing move five times to pick up the win. Maybe that damages the Pop Rox a bit as a finisher, but I think it was more about making Vice look like a credible opponent. I thought Vice did a good job of selling the right hand injury in the match. Perez is a very skilled all-around wrestler at such a young age and she has a very bright future. Just to show how you good this show has been, I rated this over three stars and it was the weakest match on the show even though it’s a very good match.

There were some videos about various WWE things.

Lexis King was featured in a video message celebrating rock n roll because it’s real music. King said it’s not like music that Eddy Thorpe listens to. King said he’s going to beat Tony D’Angelo for the NXT Heritage Cup on Tuesday.

Tony D’Angelo responded to the video from Lexis King. Tony said that Lexis was talking about this like it’s going to be easy. Tony said he’s the Don of NXT and if you think this will be a walk in the park, Tony is insulted. Tony agreed to the match. Tony said he’ll smack Lexis’ fake ass beard off his face.

This Tuesday on NXT:

* NXT Heritage Cup Match: Tony D’Angelo vs. Lexis King

* Karmen Petrovic vs. Arianna Grace

* Luke Gallows & Karl Anderson vs. OTM

* Gallus vs. Tyson Dupont & Tyriek Igwe

* Wes Lee addresses his future

A video package aired to set up the Fatal 4-Way NXT Title match.

Je’Von Evans was up first. The 20-year-old phenom is competing at his first WWE PLE event and he’s in the main event of the show. That’s impressive. Shawn Spears was up next in his home province since he’s from St. Catharine’s, Ontario, which is about an hour away from Toronto. Ethan Page was up next as another Ontario-born guy in this match since he’s from Hamilton, which is also about one hour away from Toronto. Ethan wore a jacket that got him some heat since he was wearing a jacket that said: “Resident of the USA” on it. That’s good. Trick Willaims got a big ovation as the NXT Champion and a lot of “Whoop That Trick” chants. I think the song also has the chants as part of the song. Ring announcer Mike Rome did the championship introductions while staying out of the ring.

NXT Championship: Trick Williams vs. Je’Von Evans vs. Shawn Spears vs. “All Ego” Ethan Page

In a WWE Fatal 4-Way match, there are no disqualifications and no countouts. The first fall wins the match.

Page left the ring, so Evans dove onto him on the floor. Trick clotheslined Spears out of the ring. Evans and Page exchanged punches. Page and Spears took turns ramming their opponents into the steel steps. Page and Spears teased fighting eachother, so they each did the dreaded eye poke move. Evans hit a spinning kick and Williams hit a neckbreaker. Trick went for a slam, Evans got out of it and Evans sat on top of trip for two. Evans hit a dropkick followed by a hurricanrana. Evans got a pin attempt on Trick for two. Trick nailed Evans with a clothesline followed by a body slam. Trick came back with his own dropkick. Trick avoided a chair attack by Spears while Trick hit a leaping sidekick on two opponents. Trick hit a double flapjack on Spears and Page. Evans hit a springboard cross body block on Spears and Page. Trick hit a Book End for a two count. Spears dumped Trick out of the ring. Page suplexed Evans onto Spears, who was against the ropes. Spears flipped Evans onto the two other opponents and Page hit a powerslam on Evans for two. Page went up top for nothing since Spears chopped him a few times. Trick picked Evans on his shoulder and Trick hit a DDT on Spears at the same time that Page hit a shoulder tackle on Evans. Spears grabbed a steel chair and hit Trick in the back. Spears hit Page in the ribs followed by Spears hitting a leaping Evans with the chair to the back. Trick hit an uppercut punch on Spears. Spears gave Trick a C4 slam into the turnbuckle chair for a two count. Evans was back into it with a superkick on Spears, then Spears superkicked Page and Evans. Page kicked Spears to put him down while Trick hit a flipping neckbreaker on Page. All four guys were down selling as the fans chanted “this is awesome” for the fast paced action.

Trick left the ring and cleared off the commentary table. The fans were chanting for tables earlier. Page fought back against Trick and sent him face first into the ring post. Trick threw Page into the ring post. Evans ran across the ring and did a somersault dive over the top onto Trick that put Trick through the barricade! The fans chanted “holy shit” for it. The replay showed that Page was able to avoid it. I’ve seen Montez Ford do that dive a lot, but it’s not easy and Evans got even more distance on it. Back in the ring, Spears hit a C4 on Evans off the middle turnbuckle and Page threw Spears out of the ring leading to Page covering Evans for one…two…no! Evans kicked out. Trick was back in the ring briefly to try to Powerbomb Spears, but they took a spill over the top to the floor. Evans jumped off the top with a Spanish Fly slam on Page. Trick jumped off the top with a Cutter for one…two…no! Trick got his hand in there to break up the pin. Trick and Evans got into a slugfest leading to both guys connecting with kicks. Both guys bounced off the ropes leading to jumping kicks that knocked them both down. Spears and Evans battled on the top rope, which led to Evans hitting a top rope Cutter. Evans went up top again and hit a twisting splash onto Spears for two because Trick made the save again. Evans went for a springboard attack on Trick, but Trick shoved him backward and Evans went crashing back-first onto the commentary table. That’s a brutal bump with Evans taking a shot to the ribs. Trick charged at Spears, who avoided a move and Spears applied a Sharpshooter submission. Page stopped that with a boot to Spears’ face and Page hit Ego’s Ege on Trick for two because Evans put Trick’s foot on the bottom rope. I’m not sure about the rope break two count in a match with No DQ’s, but the referee went with it. Page picked up Evans, Spears pulled Evans down and Trick hit the Trick Shot knee on Evans while also knocking Spears off the apron to the floor. Trick hit the Trick Shot lefty knee to Page as well. Page fell backward onto Evans for the cover while Spears held onto Trick’s leg to prevent the save as Page covered Evans for the one…two…and three! Ethan Page wins! It went 17:22.

Winner by pinfall AND NEW NXT Champion: Ethan Page

Analysis: ****1/4 This was an awesome match. It exceeded my expectations for it. Je’Von Evans didn’t win, but he was a human highlight reel in this match as the young guy who wasn’t afraid to do high risk moves throughout the match. Evans was the star of the match to me. Trick did a great job as the champion who was breaking up pin attempts to try to keep his title, but on the final attempt to keep the title, Spears was holding his leg and Trick was unable to break up the pin. I think it’s a smart finish because Trick made saves throughout the match and then the one time he couldn’t make the save was when he lost the match and the title. Ethan Page leaves with the NXT Title, but it’s not like he walked out of this match as a dominant winner. It was a fluke finish.

Ethan Page was presented with the NXT Championship with a big smile on his face. Trick Williams was furious outside the ring. They replayed the key spots in the match.

Ethan Page continued to celebrate with the NXT Title while Trick was angry at ringside. Page taunted Trick and Page held up the title to celebrate.

Analysis: I assume they go with Page against Trick in an NXT Title rematch soon since Trick wasn’t pinned. I thought Trick’s NXT Title reign would last longer since it didn’t get to the three-month mark. Did I think Trick would have a longer title reign? Yes. With that said, I don’t mind the title change because Page is a great heel and very entertaining overall.

After the show appeared to be over, they showed the face of TNA’s Joe Hendry with a big smile so we will likely see Joe in NXT again very soon.

This event had a runtime of 2:25:02 on WWE Network and Peacock.


Five Stars of the Show

  1. Ethan Page
  2. Oba Femi and Wes Lee
  3. Trick Williams, Shawn Spears and Je’Von Evans
  4. Kelani Jordan
  5. Nathan Frazer & Axiom


Final Thoughts

I’m going with an 8.5 out of 10.

This was an excellent show. The best NXT PLE this year and probably for a few years. I rated it higher than Money in the Bank and I really liked MITB too. The five matches on the main card were all title matches. The big news is Ethan Page leaving as the NXT Champion in controversial fashion because he took Trick Williams’ finisher and landed on Je’Von Evans to win the match. It wasn’t a decisive win at all, yet it will lead to an interesting story with Trick trying to win back the title. Page has clearly impressed NXT officials since he won the NXT Title in his second NXT PLE match. Speaking of impressive, Je’Von Evans was incredible in that match. That 20-year-old man is going to be a massive star as long as he’s smart about what he does out there. Shawn Spears was also very good in that match. I liked that main event a lot.

There were other matches to like as well such as the Oba Femi-Wes Lee NXT North American Title match. As I said in the review, Femi has had less than 20 televised matches and he’s out there having four-star level (that means great) matches. Lee is a very talented veteran. I also loved the NXT Tag Team Title match with Frazer & Axiom beating Chase U. There wasn’t much of a story there, but they had an incredible tag team match. I had it tied with the main event as the best of the show.

I liked the two women’s matches as well. Kelani Jordan has been in WWE for less than two years and she looks like a seasoned pro out there who keeps improving. Sol Ruca is an amazing athlete as well. They both have bright futures. The same can be said about Roxanne Perez and Lola Vice. I’m glad Perez is still the NXT Women’s Champion since she’s so great as that character right now.

The website Cagematch where fans vote on shows has this event rated at 9.30 out of 10 as of this writing. It is ranked as the sixth-best WWE PPV/PLE of all time. That seems high to me, but it shows that a lot of fans loved this event.

Here are my NXT PLE rankings for 2024.

Heatwave (June 7) – 8.5

Stand & Deliver (April 6) – 7.75

Vengeance Day (February 4) – 7.5

Battleground (June 7) – 7.5
