WWE NXT notes: R-Truth hurt, Mandy Rose vs. Alba Fyre on 11/15, Women’s Tag Title rematch

R-Truth hurt off a dive, Mandy Rose vs. Alba Fyre set, Women's Tag Title rematch, Duke Hudson joins Chase U, Carmelo Hayes-Wes Lee

R-Truth was helped away from the ringside area as his match with Grayson Waller was ongoing. Truth attempted a flip over the top rope and when he landed, he grabbed his left knee. The match was thrown out by the referee.

It is official that on November 15th, Mandy Rose will defend the NXT Women’s Championship against Alba Fyre. Fyre interrupted Mandy’s celebration for her year-long reign as champion. Alba took out Gigi Dolin and said she’ll take out Jacy Jayne next week before facing Rose.

There will be a rematch for the NXT Women’s Tag Titles on 11/8. Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark are set to challenge Kayden Carter and Katana Chance for the belts. Their title win last week was reversed as the illegal person was pinned. In the restart, Chance and Carter retained.

Zoey Stark was in singles action on NXT and she lost to Indi Hartwell. Lyons convinced Zoey to not put Hartwell through the announce table and finish the match out clean. This led to Zoey losing.

Earlier today, Bodhi Hayward confirmed that he was released from WWE. He was a member of Chase University and prior to Thea Hail’s singles match, she told Andre Chase that it something did not feel right, alluding to Bodhi not being there to carry the Chase U flag. Duke Hudson emerged and opted to carry the flag.

During Thea’s match against Kiana James, Hudson tried to give Thea the advantage but was sent to the back by Chase who was not fond of Hudson’s tactics. Thea ended up losing to Kiana and post-match, Chase was ambushed by Charlie Dempsey. Duke Hudson made the save and it was later made official that on 11/8, Dempsey is taking on Andre Chase.

Below is Vic Joseph’s sit-down interview with The Schism (Ava Raine, Joe Gacy, Rip Fowler & Jagger Reid). Ava explained why she joined the group and mentioned that when she was sidelined with her injury, Joe Gacy checked on her. She went on to state that people make assumptions about who she is and why she aligned with The Schism. Next week, Gacy is going one-on-one with Cameron Grimes.

NXT commentator Booker T made references to Bodhi Hayward no longer being with WWE, stating that Hayward got his ‘scholarship yanked’. Also, as he was boasting about Kiana James’ wealth, Booker joked about Reality of Wrestling being for sale.

For the first time since January, Odyssey Jones was back in the ring after recovering from a ruptured patella. He scored a win over Javier Bernal.

In the main event, North American Champion Wes Lee and NXT Champion Bron Breakker unsuccessfully challenged Pretty Deadly (Kit Wilson & Elton Prince) for their NXT Tag Team Championships. Carmelo Hayes pushed Lee off the top rope and cost him and Breakker the match. Following that, Breakker was ambushed by Von Wagner.
