On Friday night, the Yellow Brand held their latest batch of television tapings at Full Sail. Please be aware that everything you read in the subsequent paragraphs is an actual, massive, legitimate spoiler for what will happen over the next several weeks of NXT television. You may read on only at your own risk. But if you’re the sort of person who just simply cannot wait until next week to find out what happens next, congratulations! This post is for you!
These tapings should take NXT television through at least the next three weeks.
Results from the 6/23/17 NXT tapings:
— The tapings began with Triple H personally introducing Mauro Ranallo and welcoming him to the announce booth.
1. Mae Young Classic Qualifier: Bianca Bel Air defeated Aliyah. Bianca Bel Air is the new name for Performance Center standout Bianca Blair.
2. The Velveteen Dream defeated Ho Ho Lun.
3. Hideo Itami NC Oney Lorcan. The match was waved off after Itami got busted open. The tapings halted as the crew changed the bloody canvas.
4. Mae Young Classic Qualifier: Vanessa Borne defeated Jayme Hachey. Two more name changes here. Vanessa Borne was previously billed in NXT as Danielle Kamela, and Jayme Hachey wrestles elsewhere as Jayme Jameson.
— Johnny Gargano entered and cut a promo in the ring. He says he never saw Tommaso Ciampa’s betrayal coming, but he’s still standing and will be at TakeOver: Brooklyn no matter what. Gargano’s new singles theme debuted here as well.
5. Hideo Itami defeated Oney Lorcan. After the match, Itami called Kassius Ohno out and the two got in the ring together, but SAnitY appeared and beat down both men.
6. No Way Jose defeated Cezar Bononi. After the match, Jose left, and Andrade “Cien” Almas and Thea Trinidad came to the ring to put the boots to Bononi. Jose ran back out to make the save.
7. Ember Moon defeated Ruby Riot.
8. SAnitY defeated Hideo Itami and Kassius Ohno. Ohno and Itami began bickering during the match, and Itami refused to tag Ohno in, leading to the loss.
9. Oney Lorcan defeated Danny Burch. The two men shook hands after the match and Burch asked for a rematch.
