Looks like Josh Briggs and Carmelo Hayes face off next week in the NXT Breakout Tournament. Weren't both of those guys favorites? Will be interesting to see.

01:48 (GMT)21 JUL 2021

Karrion Kross has apparently arrived at the CWC and bypassed Joe. Joe pulls another bald guy out of the car and then storms back into the CWC. Kross should have walked in with a lantern made of Jeff Hardy's head.

After the match, Grimes tells Maverick to leave, but Knight attacks Drake before he can leave. Grimes eventually gets in to pull Knight off of Maverick. Knight then tries to force Grimes to hit Drake, and he does so reluctantly.

01:41 (GMT)21 JUL 2021

Knight is more worried about the proper placement of the title instead of Drake. Drake takes advantage with a crossbody but Knight hits a Fallaway Slam. Knight is still mad that Grimes isn't holding the title properly. He sticks his head between the middle rope, gets kicked in the butt, and face-planted into the belt. Maverick rolls him up for the win.
Result: Drake Maverick defeats LA Knight by pin.

01:38 (GMT)21 JUL 2021

Knight makes Grimes hold the Million Dollar Belt high above his head while he fights Maverick. Jim Ross would call Maverick "quicker den a hiccup."

MSK is interviewed by McKenzie Mitchell. They're about to tell her what MSK stands for, but Imperium interrupts it with a hacker-like transmission. So we don't find out what it stands for but Mitchell does. "It all makes sense now," she says.

The crowd is already behind Odyssey Jones. His size is too much for Andre Chase. He bullies the smaller guy, sending him out of the ring. Chase attempts a springboard press but it's botched.

He gets superkicked and then smashed with the guitar.

01:13 (GMT)21 JUL 2021

Right off the bat, Escobar sends the Mariachi guys out of the ring. He says he isn't going to lower himself to entertain you (the NXT fans) because they aren't worth it." 

01:07 (GMT)21 JUL 2021

Looks like in response to the Hit Row Cypher thing, Legado Del Fantasma will have a "Mariachi Madness Musical." LOL this should be good.

01:05 (GMT)21 JUL 2021

That right there might have been Theory's best match in NXT.

01:04 (GMT)21 JUL 2021

Theory turns around but KOR kicks and punches him. They're doing a call back to his neck injury. KOR loses it and just lands strike after strike on Theory.

00:53 (GMT)21 JUL 2021

Theory is in control early on but things are pretty even so far. KOR lands a knee to Theory's gut and KOR then slaps Theory in the face. It angers Theory but we go to commercial.
