Wrestling Lockup with Brandon, brought to you by Triple Threat CLE. It's this week's NXT and Smackdown recap for the week.
*** NXT ***
- This week's NXT was at their home base at Full Sail University in Orlando, Florida. Some highlights to this weeks show: Emma and Dana Brooke continued their mission of being noticed in NXT as they battled Peyton Royce and Billie Kay. More second round Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament action, as Samoa Joe and Fin Balor faced Enzo and Big Cass. All that and a lot more.
- Finn Balor and Samoa Joe defeated Enzo and Big Cass, by pinfall, in a Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic Tournament Match: The match closes out with Big Cass hitting a big boot on Joe and Balor. Cass follows with an elbow and a Boss Man Slam for a near fall. Enzo and Cass hit their Rocket Launcher finisher on Joe, cover and Joe kicks out, stunning Enzo and Cass. Joe rolls through on the kick out and hits the Muscle Buster. Balor follows with the double stomp from the top rope. Balor covers and scores the pinfall. Joe and Balor advance in the tournament.
- Backstage, NXT GM William Regal tells Emma and Dana Brooke that since they ruined Asuka's contract signing last week, Dana will face Asuka at Takeover. Dana isn't fazed until Regal shows Dana some Asuka wrestling highlights. Dana looks worried as Emma tells her good luck with that.
- That closes out this week's NXT. Next week will be NXT Takeover: Respect. Join me for my recap of the event next Friday afternoon.
*** Smackdown ***
- This week's Smackdown took place in Albany, New York. Some highlights to this weeks show: Ryback battled Kevin Owens for the WWE Intercontinental Championship. Team BAD battled Team Bella. Bray Wyatt and Roman Reigns decide their fate at Hell In A Cell. Main event time saw Seth Rollins and The New Day battle The Dudley Boys and Demon Kane, with Corporate Kane at ringside. All that and a lot more.
- Backstage, The New Day clap and dance for Seth Rollins, hyping up their match tonight. The New Day clap and chant "Seth The Man" and walk off. Kane appears and laughs.
- Backstage, Charlotte says her and Becky Lynch are still friends and Paige has started the spoiled brat campaign. Paige interrupts and mocks Becky. Charlotte says Paige needs to be with them or against them. Paige asks if that's an ultimatum. Charlotte says they have no other choice and she and Becky walk off. Nattie Neidhart appears and tells Paige if she ever disrespects Nattie again, Paige will regret it.
