WWE NXT Results—Wednesday, November 25, 2020
Candice LeRae def. Ember Moon
Given all the heels surrounding the ring, this match did not bode well for Ember Moon.
Ember Moon just came back and her losing ways are already an issue.
Given the fact that she was nowhere to be found throughout this long match where Moon was outnumbered, I could see Toni Storm’s heel turn from miles away.
Undisputed Era Appears Live
The Undisputed Era and The Kings of NXT are running circles around every Survivor Series Elimination Match in terms of buildup.
Once upon a time this heel stable seemed destined for a split, but fast forward to today and this was one helluva babyface promo.
Kushida def. Timothy Thatcher
This match has strong style written all over it.
Timothy Thatcher bled from the mouth in this match because of course he did.
Thatcher-Ciampa still seems like a promising feud that could really make Thatcher if NXT decides to go in that direction.
The KO Show with Leon Ruff
Not only did Leon Ruff dress like a champion, but his otherwise generic theme music hits too.
Leon Ruff was so likable in this segment, but some parts bordered on him coming off like more of a fan than a Superstar.
Kevin Owens literally (and cynically) counted down to when Johnny Gargano was going to come out and Gargano walked out almost on cue.
Kevin Owens has been watching wrestling for too long. That was the moral of this segment.
Cameron Grimes def. Jake Atlas
This battle of the underrated left WWE Twitter speechless for the first time in history as they didn’t know who to side with.
This match wasn’t as good as it should have been but I’m glad Cameron Grimes actually won.
Cameron Grimes tried to leave the building to avoid Dexter Lumis’ video vignette, only to see himself appear on the “X” in the entranceway, and for whatever reason that video kept him from leaving.
As if they haven’t run gimmicks into the ground, the next chapter of Cameron Grimes vs. Dexter Lumis will be a strap match.
Rhea Ripley Appears Live
Rhea Ripley appearing in a “what’s next” segment tonight suggests maybe she isn’t leaving NXT.
Boy, this women’s WarGames match seems forced.
Pete Dunne vs. Kyle O’Reilly—Ladder Match
The announcers made a bigger deal about this being Kyle O’Reilly’s first match since NXT 31 than this being Pete Dunne’s first match in almost forever.
I did not expect the ladder to break during Pete Dunne’s suplex, but when it did it looked so great.
NXT couldn’t have thought of a better use for Pete Dunne’s finger-snap gimmick than to do so at the top of a ladder.
Pat McAfee came out in the exact same mask from a few short weeks ago yet Vic Joseph still had to pretend like he didn’t have a clue whom it could have been.
