Featured below are complete WWE NXT results from Tuesday, September 26, 2023. The following report was written by Rajah.com reporter Matt Boone (@MattBoone0709), our live coverage partner.
The John Cena-led "WWE Then. Now. Forever. Together." opening signature airs to get this week's show underway. We shoot inside the CWC where Vic Joseph and Booker T welcome us to this week's show.
Now we head to the ring for our opening contest, which is the finals of the NXT Global Heritage Invitational. We see The Meta-Four and Noam Dar dressed in all white in the luxury box inside the venue.
Butch's theme hits and "The Brawling Brutes" member makes his way to the ring. He settles in the ring. His theme dies down. Joe Coffey comes out next accompanied by Gallus. He settles in the ring and his entrance tune fades down.
The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. The winner advances to NXT No Mercy this weekend to challenge Noam Dar for the NXT Heritage Cup Championship. We see "The Viewing Party" set up backstage. Butch slaps Coffey early. The fans chant "You got Butch-slapped!"
Coffey starts to fight back, but Butch cuts him off and remains in control of the offense. He taunts and mocks Coffey at one point, which pops the crowd. He slaps an armbar on Coffey and while Mark Coffey distracts the ref, Wolfgang sneaks in with a cheap shot. Coffey takes over in the ring.
We see one-third of The Brawling Brutes take back over, knocking Coffey out to the floor and hitting a big diving splash. Back in the ring, Butch continues to work over Coffey. Mark Coffey and Wolfgang both jump on the apron, but the ref catches them and ejects them from ringside. We head to a mid-match commercial on that note.
As we settle back in from the break, we see Coffey taking over Butch. At one point, Booker calls Coffey by the name of Joe Gacy. Vic corrects him, but then does it seconds later. Booker either didn't catch it or chose not to bust his chops back. They should change one of those names.
Butch hits a big shot and now both guys are down. Seconds later, Butch hits his Bitter End finisher and scores the pin fall victory. With the win, Butch advances to challenge Noam Dar for the NXT Heritage Cup Championship at NXT No Mercy.
Winner and ADVANCING to challenge for NXT Heritage Cup: Butch

It's time to see if Vic or Booker will call the next guy Joe Coffey at some point, as Trick Williams heads down to the ring to an awesome "Whoop that Trick!" chant to the beat of his theme song. He is up next against Joe Gacy.

He tells Hayes he can see him struggle outside of his comfort zone. He promises he will learn real pain. Hayes talks about struggling with his confidence but only for a minute and then he checked himself.
Hayes says real pain is Dragunov believing his own hype. He thinks he won at Great American Bash, but says he and these people all know that is not true. Dragunov says this Saturday is his destiny. Dragunov asks what Hayes is gonna do when he doesn't stay down on Saturday. When he shoots his best shot and misses.
'Melo tells Dragunov it's not about how many veins you can pop out of your head. He says "I am him." He says he's not the same as the guys he's beaten before. He says he's not Bron or Trick. Everyone ooh's and ahh's. He realizes what he just said by his facial reaction but he keeps on. Dragunov signs the contract.
Fans chant "Melo's gonna miss!" Dragunov's veins pop out of his head one more time as he delivers his final message to Hayes. "Long like the czar!" Hayes stands up and signs the contract.
