Featured below are complete WWE NXT results from Tuesday, January 30, 2024. The following report was written by Rajah.com reporter Matt Boone and our live coverage partner (@MattBoone0709) as the show aired live from 8-10pm EST. on the USA Network.
The show kicks off with the John Cena-narrated opening signature and then we see a recap of last week's show, which culminated with the contract signing for the NXT Women's Championship showdown at NXT Vengeance Day 2024.
The theme for Trick Williams hits as we shoot inside the CWC and Vic Joseph and Booker T welcome us to the show. The fans do the "Whoop That Trick!" chant as he and Carmelo Hayes make their way out. As they continue walking, the theme meshes into 'Melo's tune and the fans boo.
LWO's theme hits next and out comes Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde as Vic Joseph talks us through a look at the brackets for the 2024 Men's Dusty Rhodes Tag-Team Classic Tournament. The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. The winners meet Bron Breakker & Baron Corbin in the Dusty Classic Finals on Sunday.
'Melo and Wilde kick things off for their respective teams. Wilde takes Hayes down to the mat, but upon getting up, Carmelo takes over and starts beating down the LWO member. Trick Williams tags in and the crowd comes to life with "Whoop That Trick!" chants as he does exactly that.
Wilde and Del Toro fire back up and hit back-to-back diving splashes from the ring to the floor on Melo and Trick to bring the crowd to their feet with loud "LWO! LWO!" chants. On that note, we shift gears and head into a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.
When we return, we see Del Toro and Wilde take turns dominating the action and hitting high spot after high spot for several close near fall attempts. Ultimately, however, Trick and 'Melo Game hang in there and pull off the victory when Williams makes the comeback and gets the pin for his team.
Winners and ADVANCING to the Dusty Classic Finals: Trick Williams & Carmelo Hayes
After the match, we see Oba Femi hit the ring and attack the LWO duo. Dragon Lee runs out but gets beat down for his efforts. We then head backstage where Ava is trying to explain to Ridge Holland why he can't wrestle all three members of Gallus by himself.
Lexis King comes up with a fruit basket to butter Ava up, but ends up getting stuck in a match with Ridge Holland tonight for his troubles.
We then head to Tatum Paxley, who is weirding out over a picture of Lyra Valkyria that she strokes while talking to it. Lyra comes in and asks why she got involved and put Roxanne Perez through a table last week. They bicker back-and-forth and Paxley assures her she'll take out Perez tonight and then she won't even have to defend her title on Sunday.
Back inside the CWC, Perez's theme hits and out comes the former NXT Women's Champion. Lyra Valkyria joins Vic and Booker on special guest commentary for this match. We head to a quick pre-match commercial break on that note.
When we return, Tatum Paxley makes her way out. The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. This one doesn't last long and is kept relatively short, with Perez scoring the easy victory. After the match, Perez and Paxley got into it again until Valkyria left the announce desk to break it up and have a stare down with her title challenger for Vengeance Day.
Winner: Roxanne Perez
Arianna Grace and Wren Sinclair are shown backstage talking. Grace brags about being a leader. Fallon Henley walks in and tells her she'll have a chance to prove to Sinclair what a leader she is, because they're having a match tonight.
We see Elektra Lopez walking backstage heading towards the ring as we head into another commercial break. When we return from the break, Lopez settles in the ring and then Lola Vice comes out. The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one.
Immediately we see Lopez charge at Vice and go to work on her with a vengeance as the commentators bring fans up to speed on their recent friendship turned rivalry. Lola takes over and shouts and taunts Lopez while beating her down and hitting her with an ass splash in the corner of the ring.
As she goes for a triangle choke, Lopez scoops her up and slams her way out of it. She starts to fight her way back into competitive form after that as the crowd rallies behind her in the background. Lola goes for another submission but Elektra escapes. Seconds later, she blasts Lopez with a big kick for the win.
Winner: Lola Vice
We head to a cinematic experience-type segment that shows Dijak in a dark room doing some tape studying or something when Joe Gacy walks in and says, "So this is where you work?" Dijak tells him he's not welcome but Gacy takes a seat anyways. Dijak asks what he wants.
Gacy says he doesn't really want anything in life. He says he came here to tell him no matter what he does, he can't get rid of him. He says he'll just keep crawling back no matter what he does to him. This wraps up soon after that with Dijak losing his cool.
Back inside the CWC, Ridge Holland is wrapping up his ring entrance in progress, when the theme for Lexis King hits and out he comes to the ring. The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with our next match of the evening here on the WWE NXT Vengeance Day 2024 go-home episode of NXT on USA.
After the two have some quick, basic back-and-forth offensive exchanges, we see Holland start to pull ahead into the lead as we shift gears and head into an early mid-match commercial break.
When we return from the break, the match is still going in progress with Holland dominating much of the offense. Things continue like this until the three-man Gallus crew hits the ringside area for a run-in, which leads to King getting the pin fall victory. After the match, King and Gallus beat down Holland some more.
Winner: Lexis King
Backstage, we see a bummed out Andre Chase and Duke Hudson talking about how they can't believe Chase University is really done and over with. They get ready for one final goodbye and then we head to another commercial break before the segment begins.
When we return, Trick Williams and Carmelo Hayes are backstage celebrating their Dusty Classic Semifinals win. Hayes and Williams say they didn't expect to see the other at SmackDown and Royal Rumble. Melo warns Williams about Ilja Dragunov's mind games and says at some point, he'll see tonight that Melo has been right all along.
Inside the CWC, we see Andre Chase, Duke Hudson and Riley Osborne in the ring wearing all black like a funeral. Chase talks about how he can't believe Chase U is finally done. He believes the memories they created will stand the test of time. He says he has no one to blame but himself for Chase U closing, but he wants us to know we helped him live his dream.
Duke Hudson talks about how he had some help in creating a special video package to look back at the history of Chase U. The video package plays with cheesey sad music and highlights from the beginning of Chase U until now, in super extra dramatic fashion. When the video wraps, Chase says that whole thing was a teachable moment.
He gets ready to say goodbye to Hudson and Osborne forever but before he can, the theme for Jacy Jane and Thea Hail hits. Out they come. They say if you want something said, ask a man, but if you want something done, ask a woman. Chase says it's not a good time because they're saying their goodbyes. Jacy says she wasn't sure she would fit into Chase U.
Jacy Jane says for the first time in her life, she found herself looking for friends. She talks about Chase bringing light back into Duke's life and how protective he is over Thea. She said she was inspired by it. She says maybe even she could actually change. She said when she saw Chase U in trouble, she knew she had to stand up for them.
She says she's loyal to the things and people who matter most. She said she had to look inside for her solution. She tells Chase they will not be saying goodbye to Chase University tonight. "Let me introduce the 2024 ladies of Chase U calendar." Some music plays and we see a bunch of women come out as pictures are shown of them in Chase U gear in pictures for a calendar.
Jane says the projected sales for the Chase U Ladies calendar will not only save Chase U from debt, but it will get them to the promise land. Chase asks what she's saying. She says at NXT Vengeance Day 2024 the calendar will go on sale and will not only get them to the next level, but it will keep Chase U alive and launch them into the next decade.
Andre Chase, Riley Osborne and Duke Hudson are all happy. We head to a commercial break. When we return, we see Chase backstage with Jane and Hail overly thanking them for saving Chase U and "his life." Lexis King comes in and asks for a signed copy of that calendar. Riley tells him to back off.
They bicker back-and-forth and then King walks off saying no one likes him. Thea Hail says she likes him and then we see a giant fight breaking out with Dijak and Joe Gacy and a bunch of officials trying to break it up.
Back inside the CWC, the theme for Fallon Henley hits and as she makes her way to the ring, she is accompanied by Wren Sinclair. She settles inside the squared circle and her theme music dies down. Arianna Grace's entrance tune hits and out comes the faux beauty queen for our next match of the evening.
Grace sticks her hand out for Henley to kiss as the bell sounds, but of course Henley declines and opts instead to start beating her up. Grace fights back and does an overly dramatic beauty queen pose for the crowd, which allows Henley to recover and take over once again. Henley focuses her offensive attack on the arm of Grace.
As the action continues, we see Henley all but finish Grace off when out of nowhere we see interference from The Meta Four lead to Grace picking up the upset victory. After the match, we see a quick OTM package responding to one from The Family earlier in the show promoting their tag title showdown at Vengeance Day. Dijak throws Joe Gacy off a big truck in the back and we head to a break.
Winner: Arianna Grace
It's main event (match) time!
We return from the break and we see Bron Breakker in the locker room. In comes Baron Corbin singing Breakker's praises for his performance in the Men's Royal Rumble match. He asks why he had to watch it on Peacock to see it. He said he figured as one-half of The Wolf Dogs, he'd have been told. Breakker stops him and makes him admit he likes The Wolf Dogs name.
Back inside the CWC, we shoot to Booker T and Vic Joseph at the commentary desk. They have their serious voices on as they recap what just transpired with Dijak throwing Joe Gacy off a production truck outside of the building prior to the commercial break.
The camera then pans over to the ring, where we see Von Wagner with Mr. Stone by his side on one side, and reigning and defending NXT Heritage Cup Champion Noam Dar with The Meta-Four by his side. The ring announcer handles the formal pre-match ring introductions and then runs down the rules. The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one.
Von Wagner dominates the action straight out of the gate, pummeling Dar for the entire first round. He un-tapes his own fists towards the end of the round and keeps pounding and pounding on Dar as opposed to making any effort to score any points. The bell sounds to end the round and Von keeps pounding on him. The Meta-Four come in to drag a lifeless Noam away, but Von grabs him and stops them.
It is finally explained to Von how this works and he goes to his corner. The in-between rounds time is up and Von charges at Noam and attacks him in the corner. After a distraction, Dar takes over and scores a quick fall to end the second round as soon as it starts.
As they go to their respective corners with Dar up 1 to 0, we head into a mid-match commercial break. We return, and the third round wraps up with Von stuck in a submission but not tapping. The bell sounds to start the fourth round, with Noam still up 1 to 0. Von immediately takes it to Noam while limping all-the-while. Noam takes back over after some distractions and goes up 2 to 0 to win and retain.
Dar heads over and taunts Robert Stone's kids in the crowd after the match. Von snaps and heads out to beat him up on the floor. He clears off the commentary desk and picks up Noam. Stone is actually cheering him on. Oro Mensah comes over to jump on him but he ends up power bombing him through the table instead.
Winner and STILL NXT Heritage Cup Champion: Noam Dar
Backstage, we see an upset Ava reading Dijak the riot act after throwing Joe Gacy off the production truck earlier in the parking lot. Dijak tells Ava he wants a No Disqualification match against Gacy at Vengeance Day. Ava asks how that's possible after what he did.
Gacy pops up behind them with trash all over him and says he likes the idea. Ava tells Dijak and Gacy the match is on. We head to another commercial break.
It's main event (segment) time!
Vic Joseph and Booker T run down the updated lineup for Saturday's WWE NXT Vengeance Day 2024 premium live event in Clarksville, TN. We then hear Trick Williams' theme as he comes out to settle in the ring. He then tells Ilja Dragunov he doesn't want to waste any time and to come on out.
The theme for "The Mad Dragon" hits and out comes the WWE NXT World Champion. Trick refuses to shake his hand and goes on to talk about how he thinks Ilja has been playing him this whole time in an attempt to increase his own chances of beating him by waiting for him to be double-booked at Vengeance Day.
Ilja continues to try and tell Trick that he should be more concerned about his own friend, Carmelo Hayes. He also tells him that their rivalry made him more of a man than his friendship and advice over the years from his "friend" Carmelo Hayes. Trick tells Ilja to leave Melo out of this.
He says he will and also tells him he's gonna ruin everything he built this Sunday. Williams gets in Ilja's face and says there isn't anyone, including "The Mad Dragon," who can destroy what he has built. He says this ain't the same Trick he stood in the ring with before as a man trying to prove himself.
He says this is a Trick who is coming for what he knows is his. Trick closes by saying "May the best man win, partner!" They shake hands and then Ilja pulls Trick in super close for a tight hug. Ilja backs off and smiles as Trick looks shook. Out of nowhere, Bron Breakker and Baron Corbin attack Trick and Ilja from behind.
Carmelo Hayes runs out to make the save but The Wolf Dogs end up guzzling him up as well. Trick starts to fight back and he and Hayes, on the same page, clear the ring of their opponents for Sunday's Dusty Classic Finals. Trick turns around and sees Ilja getting back up. They stare each other down.
Melo turns and sees Trick focusing on that while he's focused on Bron and Corbin at ringside. Vic questions where Trick's mind is at and what he's more focused on heading into Sunday. That's how this week's show goes off the air. Thanks for joining us!
