WWE NXT REPORT: D-I-WHY?, DREAM VERSUS FISH, AND MORE

By Richard Trionfo on 2019-01-23 20:55:00

We are at Full Sail University and your announcers are Mauro Ranallo, Percy Watson, and Nigel McGuinness.

We see Ricochet arriving at Full Sail.

Velveteen Dream makes his way to the ring.

Dream says if you didn't realize he has a little sparkle in his eyes.  Dream has something special in his sights.  Dream says you all know better than anybody that Dream waits for no man.  If you really knew him, you would know that the sparkle in his eye is a sparkle of championship gold.  More specifically the North American Championship.  It is high time . . . 

Dream is interrupted by Adam Cole and Bobby Fish..

Cole tells Dream to pump the brakes.  Everybody knows that 2019 will be the year of the Undisputed Era.  They will capture all championship gold.  Kyle and Roderick are getting ready for another title defense.  Him and Bobby don't have any gold to speak of.  They don't like arriving empty handed and they will have gold around their waists.  You can continue to dream on.

Bobby says Dream is making a mistake getting the hopes of the crowd raised.  You need to learn to live in reality because 2019 will continue to be our era.  That is undisputed.

Dream tells Bobby he is ready to dispute that claim but only if it is okay with Adam.

Fish comes into the ring and Dream sends him over the top rope to the floor.  Cole is sent to the floor as well and Dream escapes.

We take a look at the card for Takeover on Saturday night.  

We have a video package for Shayna Baszler and BIanca Belair.  Shayna says she has spent the year winning and defending the title.  They cannot stand that she has the title beacuse there is nothing that they can do about it.  Belair says she is the strongest, toughest, and fastest.  Shayna will learn that Belair is the best.  Shayna had a great year being a two time champion and that means Shayna has lost.  Guess who hasn't lost.  Belair says she will take the title from Shayna.  Shayna says that she knows how Belair feels because she was there last year.  Look what she did.  People fear the champion and that is what it should.

Belair says if she has to take care of three people to get the title, she will do it.  Shayna says it does not matter how strong you are or how fast you are, you need air to breathe.  Belair says she has always thrived under pressure and it takes a lot of pressure to form a diamond and this diamond will shine the best.

NXT North American Champion Ricochet makes his way to the ring.

Ricochet tells Johnny Gargano two weeks ago, you talked all this crap about being better.  Five minutes later, you blindsided him like a coward with a super kick.  2019 Johnny Gargano is the same as 2018 Johnny Gargano.  In 2018, all you did was show the world your true colors.  You showed that you are a liar and you are deceitful.  You showed that you only care about yourself.  In 2018, Ricochet says he showed his true colors when he won this title.  He showed that he is the one and only.  He showed that he is something that Johnny Gargano is not . . . a champion.  

Johnny Gargano's music plays and he makes his way to the stage.

Johnny says he knows what Ric is trying to do.  He is trying to make Johnny use his emotions against him.  Last year, he would have probably charged the ring. In 2019, Johnny Gargano has a plan.  Gargano punches Ricochet and Ricochet fights back and sends Gargano to the floor.  Ciampa comes to the ring and he hits Ricochet from behind.

Gargano looks at Ciampa and then Gargano attacks Ricochet and punches him.

Meanwhile, in the ring, Aleister Black attacks Ciampa.  Black with boots to the head in the corner.  Gargano sends Ricochet into the ring steps.

Ciampa and Gargano walk up the ramp together but they do not look like they are back together.  Ciampa offers his hand and Candice LeRae comes out to tell Johnny no.

We go to credits.
