08:38 (IST)6 DEC 2023

With his back turned, Corbin continues to mock Ilja. Ilja then shocks everyone by not attacking Corbin but hugging him, saying that "only the Dragon can take down the Dragon." It surprises Corbin as Ilja laughs at him after the gesture. 

Before they can leave, the men's Iron Survivor contestants fight from behind and into the ring. Corbin set a table in the corner so someone could go through it. Bron goes for a Spear on Dijak, but Dijak moves, causing Breakker to Spear Trick Williams. 

Bate then hits his springboard clothesline on Dijak to stand tall as the show goes off the air.

08:35 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Dragunov calls Corbin a "materialistic SOB," but Corbin says winning the title will be payback for all of the cr*p he has done over the last eight years. He has been a constant presence in WWE for almost a decade. 

He brings up Ilja's son again because he "can walk down any street and not look over his shoulder." Ilja almost loses it again, pushing over the table. Corbin then starts to throw stuff around the ring, even turning his back so Ilja can unleash his anger.

08:33 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Corbin says that he turned his back on his son, making excuses that he tells himself so he can go to sleep at night. He adds that Ilja is doing to his son what Ilja's dad did to him. Baron keeps egging Ilja on, so much that the Champ takes off his tie and coat. Ilja claims that they won't be a title match at Deadline if he unleashes his fury right now. 

08:31 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Axiom vs. Nathan Frazer is announced for the NXT Deadline pre-show. Up next is the face-to-face with Corbin, his random ships, and Ilja Dragunov. Corbin says since he's the challenger, he'll go first. 

Ilja cuts him off, saying that Corbin has made this personal, especially since he's failed to capture the NXT Title. He also claims that Corbin will pay for bringing his son into this. 

08:30 (IST)6 DEC 2023

After the main event, Melo is politicking with Ava. He says it would be great if she could "get it done," but it was vague. She walks off as Trick Williams walks into the picture. 

He asks Melo if he texted Lexis King, but Melo denies it. He says he wants a match with Lexis King at Deadline. Williams walks off after saying, "Melo opens the show. I close the show" at Deadline. Melo isn't happy with the comments.

08:23 (IST)6 DEC 2023

He says he's betting on himself and is "shocking the world" at Deadline. Bron Breakker laughs in his face until Trick Williams enters to end things. 

He says "he's not in the mood" and that he'll whoop everyone's b*tt at Deadline. Dijak tries to say something, but Trick decks him. Security is working overtime tonight!!! They try to break up the chaos again!!!

08:22 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Bate grabs the mic after the win and says, "To hell with peace and tranquility," because those other competitors don't stand a chance. Dijak cuts him off before kicking Thorpe as officials try to help him get back to the back. 

Baby Steiner is out next to say they have no idea what they're in for in the match (he hasn't been in the match either). He warns everyone to stay in the box because they'll be safe there. Josh Briggs comes out next.

08:19 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Cue the Carmelo Hayes whining about not winning...

08:19 (IST)6 DEC 2023

The remaining three stars battle it, with Melo dropping Coffey on top of Bate. Bate gets blasted with a facebuster, but Coffey breaks up the pin. Melo hits Coffey with a kick but gets attacked with a Glasgow Sendoff when going for another kick. Bate lands uppercuts on both Bate and Hayes. He hits the Tyler Driver 97 on Coffey to earn the last spot in the men's Iron Survivor match.

Result - Tyler Bate defeats Carmelo Hayes, Joe Coffey, and Eddy Thorpe by pin.

08:16 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Joe Coffey breaks up the pin. Eddy lands several kicks on Coffey, sending him from the ring. He hits a Suicide Dive on Coffey and Bate. He goes for another move on Coffey but gets planted on the steel steps by Coffey. 

The ref calls for medical to check on Thorpe. Melo pulls Bate up, whining that "he needs this" as if the other guys don't.

08:14 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Nikkita Lyons is back with a vengeance!!

08:11 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Coffey lands a series of moves on Bate, but Thorpe breaks up the pin attempt. Melo hits Thorpe with a reverse springboard clothesline. Bate and Melo work on Thorpe on the top. He pushes Bate down, but both men hit Thorpe with Enzuigiris. Thorpe hits both men with a Crossbody to start the "everyone gets a move in" run that usually happens in multi-person matches.

08:09 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Kelly Kincaid interviews Eddy Thorpe before he heads out for the match. He says despite not being 100% if he wins, he'll be in the match with the man who injured him (Dijak). Bate and Thorpe are left in the ring, with Bate spinning Thorpe and then Joe Coffey around. Bate gets a near fall. 

08:07 (IST)6 DEC 2023

"I wouldn't do that to a friend," Lexis King claims he and Melo are boys?

08:05 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Lexis King appears in an X video claiming that he knew he'd be on the lips of the fans after the video footage from last week. He says the camera always finds him because he's a star. 

He also claims that he and Melo would be on the "same page" very soon. King also claims that he never misses.

07:59 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Duke Hudson asks what else they can do besides selling his MVP trophy. Someone says "car wash," and another says "bake sale." Riley Osborne recommends classes that can explain the financial situation. 

Thea Hail is mesmerized by Osborne, causing Jacy Jayne to toss paper at her face to get her back into reality. Jayne raised her hand with a possible solution, but Chase didn't call on her. She doesn't go there, so why not Lash Legend it out???

07:57 (IST)6 DEC 2023

As Blair Davenport walks away because she doesn't need to be fighting, Nikkita Lyons runs out and drops her with a kick. We then go to Andre Chase, who addresses the student body about the "misuse of funds and gambling," as revealed. 

He says he is at fault before apologizing to everyone. Those students who joined recently are no longer eligible for financial aid. He says he's on the hook for 100s of thousands of dollars and had to take out a loan from a "third party," who totally isn't Tony D'Angelo.

07:54 (IST)6 DEC 2023

The familiarity leads to several counters in the early stages of the match. Frazer kicks Axiom hard, causing a slight pause in the match. Frazer hits a Superkick, but Axiom responds with a German Suplex through the middle rope.

Frazer recovers and blasts Axiom with a kick as he jumps off the top buckle. Axiom lands a moonsault on the outside, but as he tries to get up, the Iron Survivor women continue to fight back into the ring.
Result - Axiom vs. Nathan Frazer ends in a No Contest.

07:49 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Of course, they weren't going to remain quiet and respectful. Stratton and Legend love to hear themselves talk!

07:47 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Fallon Henley ends things by saying she'll go after everyone, even in the penalty box. She doesn't have beef with Kelani but will do whatever it takes at Deadline. Lash Legend proves she can be even louder with some unintelligible noises. 

They all start chirping at each other, causing Byron to almost lose it. Fallon gets up and says 'well-behaved women rarely make history," before decking Tiffany Stratton. All hell proceeds to break loose as everyone goes at it.

07:45 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Lash says that no one wants to hear Kelani talk. She claims that she knows how multiple pinfalls work since she's been near the Heritage Cup. She and Kelani argue. 

Up next is Blair Davenport, who says she's not here to one-up everyone with one-liners. She also doesn't care about their opinions or like anyone in the ring. She mentions putting Sol Ruca and Nikkita Lyons on the shelf. 

07:42 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Kelani Jordan goes next as the least-experienced star. She mentions that no one in this year's match was in it last year. She says her gymnastics background will help her stamina. Up next is Lash Legend.

07:41 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Byron Saxton hosts the Iron Survivor Summit. Each woman gets a chance to say why they'll win the Iron Survivor Challenge. Stratton goes first (of course), and she says the usual that she's the best, prettiest, most athletic and that Charlotte Flair "shouted her out" and called her "the future of the division."

07:40 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Despite her best efforts, Lash Legend got her hands on the beefy Otis!

07:37 (IST)6 DEC 2023

The Dragon Lee vs. Dominik Mysterio match is made official for NXT Deadline. What, were they going to have Rey randomly appear on the Tron to taunt Dom, only not to have the match??

07:36 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Who did Melo contact after talking to his boy, Trick Williams??

07:34 (IST)6 DEC 2023

After the segment, Ava is seen leaving HBK's office. She reveals that Roxanne Perez and Kiana James will face off in a Steel Cage match. 

When did she become a de facto authority figure?? The Women's Iron Survivor Summit is next.

07:33 (IST)6 DEC 2023

We then go to the bar of the charisma magnets known as Gallus. Hank and Tank are in the bar and have bought the Gallus boys a round. They randomly claim that they need to step up to guys that have done it all. Hank and Tank try to anger the boys, leading to a match next week. 

07:31 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Maxxine waits on the top buckle, hitting a Hurricanrana on Lash. She goes for the pin, but Oro pulls her off. Gable sends Oro from the ring before Maxxine kicks Lash off the apron and into Otis's arms. She whines in disgust.

Gable has Maxxine stand on his shoulders so she can jump onto Lash, Oro, and Otis. In the ring, Dar tries to hit a running kick but is caught with an ankle lock. Gable gets the Supernova to tap out.

Result - Chad Gable, Maxxine Dupri, and Otis defeat Noam Dar, Lash Legend, and Oro Mensah by submission.

Oro hits a jumping knee. He botches a springboard move and gets splashed by Otis. He hits the Worm, causing Oro to hit Lash Legend with the tag. She and Otis stare down each other until he runs at her for a hug. She moves and bodyslams him!!

07:25 (IST)6 DEC 2023

I missed it in the celebration, but Vice grabbed her contract from Lopez as the two stood in the middle of the ring. They're heading for a breakup at some point soon.

07:23 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Gable locks him in the ankle lock again, but it's broken as he tags Lash. IN comes Maxxine in her first official match in NXT. She goes for a Hurricanrana, but Lash blocks it. She goes for it again and lands it. Lash tags Dar in, and Otis runs in quickly, to Lash's chagrin. 

Dar kicks Gable off the apron before working on Otis in his corner. Oro and Dar double-team Otis until he suplexes both men simultaneously. The big man tags Gable and knocks both guys down with a shoulder block off the top.

07:21 (IST)6 DEC 2023

I wonder how long it will take for Lash and Otis to "have a moment" in this match. Noam and Gable start for their teams. Dar decks Gable, but Gable tosses him across the ring. 

Gable gets him in an ankle lock until he makes the tag to Oro Mensah. Gable out-quicks Mensah until Mensah trips him with a Sweep. He goes for it again, but Gable catches him and lands a few hip tosses.

07:19 (IST)6 DEC 2023

NXT Anonymous shows footage of Trick Williams conversing with Carmelo Hayes on the night he was attacked. They shake hands, and Trick leaves.

Dirty Dom has a new opponent for NXT Deadline this Saturday!

07:12 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Paxley plays with her hair after the loss, freaking out Vice and Lopez. We then pivot to Nathan Frazer licking his wounds after a big defeat to Ilja Dragunov last week. Axiom leaves him one of his masks, but the two almost come to blows. 

They agree to beat the cr*p out of each other, with Frazer saying that Axiom will look worse than he does. Axiom says he has to "protect the money maker" or face hidden by the mask.

07:11 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Vice hits a series of kicks followed by a hip attack in the corner for a two-count. She goes for another hip check, but Paxley evades it. She goes for a move off the ropes, but Vice catches her with a spinning heel kick for the win.

Result - Lola Vice defeats Tatum Paxley by pin.

07:10 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Paxley hits a flying crossbody in the corner. She goes for another move in the corner but is caught by Vice with a Triangle Choke. Paxley counters it and slams Vice in the middle of the ring. 

Tatum gets a near fall before locking Vice in leg scissors. Vice rolls out of it and locks in another Triangle Choke. Paxley breaks it with a pin attempt. Vice puts Paxley in a leg submission, but it's broken by the ropes. 

07:08 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Paxley uses mind games early on, contorting her body to freak Vice out. The crowd cheers for the heel Vice instead of Paxley. The commentary also mentions that Wes Lee needs back surgery to keep him out for 8-10 months. Paxley stalks Vice into the bottom ropes.

07:06 (IST)6 DEC 2023

We finally get word on the Men's Breakout Tournament with a field featuring Oba Femi, Myles Borne, Luca Crusafino, and Trey Bearhill. 

Up next is Tatum Paxley taking on Lola Vice.

07:01 (IST)6 DEC 2023

We then pivot to Kiana James entering the trainer's room. Izzi Dame runs in to kiss up to Kiana. She says the next time she sees Roxy, she will end her. 

Perez happens to be a few tables down, and the two have to be pulled apart. Ava randomly is there also and says she'll get this match made for Deadline.

06:59 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Dominik raises the title before rushing Dragon Lee. Guess one Lee is as good as the next... I'm guessing this wasn't the plan, and Wes is legitimately hurt.

06:59 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Dom says his back hurts from carrying all of the WWE for the last two years. He adds that Lee can watch from home like the fans and that he has the night off. 

Lee says, "Even if you aren't facing me, you'll be facing someone else." Rey Mysterio appears to say that he'll be at Deadline in the corner of Dragon Lee, who'll take the title from Dom.

06:56 (IST)6 DEC 2023

He tries to leave the ring after saying he'll see everyone once his physical issues are resolved, but Dirty Dom interrupts him.

06:55 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Off the commercial break, Wes Lee is in the ring. He says it would have been great to hear Alicia Taylor announce him winning back the North American Title. 

He thanks the fans for their backing but reveals that he doesn't have feelings in his legs and that it will take surgery to fix his issues. He's shedding tears, and it's heartbreaking for a guy who's busted his b*tt.

06:53 (IST)6 DEC 2023

Fallon Henley is on her way to Deadline!

06:49 (IST)6 DEC 2023
