After blowing out his knee, Tony D’Angelo was sidelined from in-ring competition. D’Angelo is scheduled to make his in-ring return on December 6th. 

Coming off the heels of his return to NXT last week and taking out North American Champion Wes Lee, Dijak had his first match in NXT since 2020. He scored a win over Dante Chen. 

J.D. McDonagh put Axiom on the shelf by stretching his leg out and causing a referee stoppage. Axiom was back in action tonight and defeated Javier Bernal. Axiom is scheduled for next week as he’ll be competing in the men’s wild card match along with Von Wagner and Andre Chase to determine who gets the final spot in the Iron Survivor Challenge at Deadline

The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed) and Indus Sher (Veer & Sanga) are set to collide. Julius went one-on-one with J.D. McDonagh and Sanga saved Julius from being taken out. J.D. had him lined up against the ring post and was about to hit him with a chair. Sanga pushed Julius out of the way and took the chair shot. Veer then yelled at The Creeds that he and Sanga want them healthy. 

Nikkita Lyons was set to team with NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Kayden Carter and Katana Chance to face Toxic Attraction (Mandy Rose, Jacy Jayne & Gigi Dolin). Zoey Stark took out Nikkita’s knee before the match began so the bout was postponed to the main event. Toxic Attraction got the victory by pinning Lyons.

NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) will be performing ‘A Real Christmas Story’ on 12/6.
