The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly from WWE NXT 11/11/2020

By: Frank Hyden

NXT was last night and it featured 3 title matches. Let’s get to the rundown.

GOOD- Leon Ruff beat Johnny Gargano to win the NXT North American Title

Gargano had a wheel in the ring to determine his opponent and it landed on Leon Ruff. Damian Priest showed up in the crowd and distracted Ruff, who took Gargano down in a crucifix and pinned him to become the new champ. Very surprising move, which makes it very awesome.

GOOD- Santos Escobar beat Jake Atlas to retain the WWE Cruiserweight Title

These guys had a really good athletic match, as would be expected. They did some high-flying, they did some matwork, it was all really good. Escobar retained so I’m not sure who his next challenger will be, unless Atlas gets another title shot.

GOOD- Xia Li and Boa mystery

Xia Li was supposed to have a match against Raquel Gonzalez. However, Boa came out and tried to call off the match. Gonzalez got angry and beat up Boa. Then, an older man came out and marked Boa’s hand with a X and gave him a letter. Hopefully whatever angle they’re doing is a good one, I’m certainly interested.

GOOD- Candice LeRae beat Toni Storm, Indi Hartwell revealed as Ghostface

The match between Storm and LeRae was fine, with LeRae winning by putting her feet on the ropes. Storm was upset and attacked LeRae, but the masked assistant came out to help beat down Storm. Shotzi Blackheart ran in as well, but also got taken out. The attacker took off the mask and revealed she was Indi Hartwell.

GOOD- Timothy Thatcher beat Dexter Lumis

They had a fairly good match. Lumis did his usual crazy stare but also showed off his athleticism, including a big Swanton Bomb. They went back and forth for a while with some real grit until Cameron Grimes showed up and Thatcher got the pin. Grimes attacked Lumis after the match and beat him down.

GOOD- Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch beat Breezango

Pat McAfee and Pete Dunne were with Lorcan and Burch. Later in the match, Drake Maverick ran in to try to avenge Killian Dain but he got taken out by Dunne and McAfee interfered to get Lorcan and Burch the win. This was a really good match between some excellent wrestlers. Breezango showed good intensity, with none of their usual light-hearted antics.And of course, Lorcan and Burch always have good intensity. This was a good way to end a good show.
