Dana Brooke Makes Her Home Back In NXT; Hail vs. Stratton Match Set


Thea Hail will be getting her NXT Women’s Championship opportunity during the second week of Gold Rush on June 27. She won the number one contender Battle Royal last week by last eliminating Cora Jade and Dana Brooke.

Hail took on Jade this week on the June 13 episode. Prior to the match, Brooke was being interviewed. She was interrupted by Jade who told her to watch her match. She then slapped Brooke.

Match time, Brooke looked on with interest from the ramp before moving to ringside. Once at ringside and the action spilled to the floor, Jade punched Brooke in the face before reaching for her kendo stick. As she goes to use it on a fallen Hail, the referee took it which allowed Brooke to push Jade into the steel steps. Hail capitalizes by getting Jade back in the ring and applying the Kimura Lock to get the submission victory.

Later on in the night, Duke Hudson said how proud he was of Hail. He says she has the possibility of becoming the youngest NXT Women’s Champion and wants to hold a pep rally next week. Stratton appears and says that Hail won’t be winning.

The second women’s match was between Roxanne Perez and Tatum Paxley. Paxley has shown interest in being by the side of Blair Davenport since the latter was revealed as the mystery attacker. Perez picked up a victory here after hitting Pop Rox. After the match, Perez took to the mic and vowed to get revenge on Davenport after all the attacks she had done to the locker room.

A video package was shown for Davenport.

Lash Legend and Jakara Jackson joined Noam Dar at ringside as Oro Mensah defended the Heritage Cup. Dar wasn’t able to compete to defend it. In the end Mensah lost the cup for Dar to Nathan Frazer. A distraction occured as Yulisa Leon and Valentina Feroz came after Legend and Jackson at ringside.

There was a video package for Lyra Valkyria who said she would overcome her recent losses.

Jacy Jayne and Elektra Lopez were watching Valkyria’s vignette. Lola Vice appeared and reminded Jayne that Valkyria eliminated her from the Battle Royal. She says to Lopez that she doesn’t like too many people but she likes Lopez. Lopez agrees that she likes Vice.

Gigi Dolin found some solice in Fallon Henley as the two marked their discontent for Kiana James. Henley told Dolin to watch her back on James.
