That comes as a surprise to no one, their last match in the UK in June was fantastic.

Deonna debuts against Bianca tonight as well, not acquainted with her but she seems like she's coming with some hype so looking forward to see her. Would be nice if NXT started to use people like Deonna, Axel Dieter Jr., and Chris Dijak more now that they've all made their debuts for the brand in recent times.

Good match with Bianca/Purazzo. Not a bad debut for Deonna. If booked right, Deonna will have a hell of a future in WWE.

It wasn't a bad match, but after seeing it, I still don't see Bianca as the next NXT Women's Champion. She felt really robotic in the ring and not really all that smooth. She still has a long ways to go, in my opinion.

It's still too early. Boss of Bel-Air was right. She's coming along but it'll take another year or so before she's ready to hold a title. They would be insane to have her go over Kairi at this point. I don't think she will.

I felt like that Bianca/Deonna match lacked something. Not a bad match, but I don't know, there was something missing. Deonna is young and I hope she develops some personality, maybe her boyfriend can help her in that aspect since he has a hell of a personality, because she reminded me to Kimber Lee a little bit and we know how that ended. Bianca is a great athlete and she is developing well, just hope they don't rush her.

Yeah it felt like she was just trying to get all of her spots in. Not to mention we haven't really seen her in the ring against actual greener people yet. For all we know, she could be good in the ring against more experienced people. However, she could easily fall apart against greener talents.

I don't know. Aliyah is fairly green, then again that was just a squash match, so yeah. Jury's still out if Bianca has progressed enough where she can carry a match.

You'd think more people would think to attack the fingers like Dunne does. It seems like a minor body part to attack, but hey...getting your fingers all contorted seems painful af.

Dunne/Gibson just had the WWE match of the week (Raw, SD, 205 Live). Fantastic match.
It was good no doubt, Gibson is the most underrated guy in wrestling. I didn't like how the finish made him look like a dumbass though. Still *** 1/4-1/2 match easy.

It seems clear the direction is headed for WarGames being TUE v. BSS v. WarRaiders & Ricochet. With Dunne saying in a backstage segment that he wants the NA Title I wonder if they'll have a stipulation where the tag belts & NA Title are on the line in the match.

It was a decent match between Gibson and Dunne, but I am not really into that british submission style, so I didn't enjoyed as much. And I thought the ending was a bit dumb tbh, Gibson takes Pete's mouthguard after leaving him laying, but as soon as he was going to throw it Pete hulks up, breaks his fingers, uses the Bitter End and wins, it was a bit sudden, didn't like it.

Bianca vs. Deonna was a nice showcase for Deonna IMO. I'm not her biggest fan, but she was very fluid in her movements. Bianca seemed, IDK, a bit lost at times I guess. She's had better performances.

I don’t think I loved it as much as others but Dunne vs. Gibson was your typical “pretty good” Pete Dunne match that never quite went beyond that.

Great match between Dunne and Gibson, though that thing with the mouthpiece and the finisher submission escape jarred me a bit, though I loved Dunne doing it by biting the ropes. :lmao

Yep. It's gonna be great. I can't wait. :mark

Probably no titles on the line, though. Dunne and Ricochet could dissent from each other next week, leading to a title match that Undisputed interferes in.

The women's match at War Games seems fairly clear now too. They were again talking about how Bianca didn't get to compete in the #1 contender's match and hyping her undefeated streak. Bianca is also getting increasingly arrogant. It's almost certainly gonna be Kairi vs. Bianca there. Bianca will likely lose though. She's not ready yet and someone needs to take her down.

Biggest question mark is who challenges Ciampa?

Also, since we saw Deonna tonight....


Looks like Io is gonna debut at this set of tapings. :mark

Ciampa vs Black II makes the most sense, assuming Black is ready. It's not a marquee, but it doesn't need to be on the War Games II card.

I also think it will be Ciampa vs. Black in the latter's last NXT match, but we can't be sure yet. It actually is the biggest match they could do right now though, with Gargano out of the picture for a while and it being too early for Keith Lee and Matt Riddle.

I don't think they will debut Io in tomorrow's tapings, it's mandatory to all of the NXT talent to be at Full Sail the day of the tapings
