SPOILERS for the May 21 episode of WWE NXT – Cageside Seats

1 minute, 38 seconds Read

WWE taped May 21’s episode of NXT along with their regular live broadcast last night (May 14) at their Performance Center in Orlando. This was presumably done so anyone who regularly works on the show that needs to en route to Saudi Arabia for King & Queen of the Ring next week will be able to so.

Here’s at least some of what we’ll see next Tuesday on USA Network, courtesy of spoilers from Fightful’s Corey Brennan:

Meta-Four interrupted an in-ring promo from NXT champion Trick Williams. Gallus attacked Williams. Je’Von Evans attempted to save Trick, but was unsuccessful.

• Lexus King was out for a match. Mr. Stone appeared but didn’t say anything, just pointed to the big screen to reveal King’s opponent: Dante Chen.

• Dante Chen def. Lexus King

• Jaida Parker def. Brinley Reece to qualify for Battleground’s Six-Pack Ladder Match for the new Women’s North American championship

• Fallon Henley def. Thea Hail to qualify for Battleground’s Six-Pack Ladder Match for the new Women’s North American championship

• Joe Coffey replaced Ivar in the three-way to determine the #1 contender to Men’s North American champ Oba Femi. Somehow (Brennan’s report doesn’t specify), Coffey and Wes Lee were both declared the winners of the match, and Femi vs. Coffey vs. Lee was made official for Battleground.

• Axiom & Nathan Frazer successfully defended the NXT Tag titles against The D’Angelo Family’s Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo & Luca Crusifino. No specifics again, but The OC and No Quarter Catch Crew both got involved in the match.

• Karmen Petrovic & Natalya def. Shayna Baszler & Lola Vice

• After the main event, Vice turned on Baszler and “dropped her”. Shayna recovered and “choked [Vice] out”. NXT General Manager Ava made a match between Vice and Baszler official for Battleground, and Shayna said they’ll face off in an Underground match.

Sound worth a couple hours of your time next Tuesday night?
