The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.

WWE NXT Results

Not one but two big title matches were on NXT’s card Wednesday night. Adam Cole defended his NXT Championship against Velveteen Dream, while Charlotte Flair defended her title against Io Shirai. Did any gold find new homes on NXT? The show also had the in-ring debut of Karrion (formerly Killer) Kross, which has been teased for weeks. Here are the results of NXT this week:

  • Johnny Gargano def. Dominik Dijakovic
  • Akira Tozawa def. Jack Gallagher in an Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament match
  • Chelsea Green def. Xia Li
  • Karrion Kross def. Leon Ruff
  • Io Shirai def. Charlotte Flair © by disqualification in an NXT Women’s Championship match
  • KUSIHDA def. Jake Atlas in an Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament match
  • Cameron Grimes def. Denzel Dejournette
  • Adam Cole (c) def. Velveteen Dream to retain the NXT Championship

Rhea Ripley is back! After a hard fought NXT Women’s Championship match where Charlotte had to use a kendo stick and get a DQ against Io, Ripley made the save during the post match. Io wasn’t happy to see Ripley at all, and it lead to security separating the two women. With Ripley back in the title picture, NXT’s Women’s division looks very intriguing going forward.

The Rebel Heart is no more. Johnny Gargano debuted some new heel entrance music before his match against Dijakovic. It had to come with the new character, but I will miss Rebel Heart as an entrance theme.

I cannot properly describe the presentation of Karrion Kross & Scarlett in their debut entrance. It had Sin City vibes, but also reminded me of The Ascension, but was also just incredibly intense. Please do yourself a favor and watch the entrance for yourself. Kross also destroyed Leon Ruff, but you could have guessed that.

AEW Dynamite Results

For the first time in roughly a month, AEW Dynamite was live from Florida. The show featured the in-ring debut of Matt Hardy, teaming with Kenny Omega against Chris Jericho and Sammy Guevara. It also had AEW World Champ Jon Moxley in action and the return of everyone’s favorite person: MJF. Here are the full results for this week’s Dynamite.

  • Cody Rhodes def. Joey Janela
  • Nyla Rose def. Kenzie Paige
  • Jon Moxley def. Frankie Kazarian
  • Lance Archer def. QT Marshall
  • Chris Jericho & Sammy Guevara def. Kenny Omega & Matt Hardy in a street fight

One of the biggest takeaways from this week’s Dynamite was the continued build towards Double or Nothing. The show had multiple matches announced for the pay-per-view, still scheduled to take place on May 23rd. First up was a match between MJF and Jungle Boy, arranged by Tony Khan. As you can tell from the clip, MJF was not pleased.

Latest From FPC on SportsCastr

Jon Moxley has a new challenger for the AEW Championship: Brodie Lee. The leader of the Dark Order had his minions attack Moxley after his match before challenging him for the title at Double or Nothing. It was a great beatdown and had a great response from Moxley. Lee & Moxley had great chemistry together in WWE, so they should do well in a prime-time singles bout.

A Casino Ladder Match was announced for Double or Nothing as well. It will determine a number one contender for the AEW Championship. No participants were announced as of yet, but some will likely be announced by next week’s Dynamite.

Also, after QT Marshall was destroyed by Lance Archer, Jake Roberts brought back his old snake gimmick. It was Brandi Rhodes who was the first to get the snake treatment in AEW, and I feel like she won’t be the last.

The main event was a wild street fight that went all around Daly’s Place. It was a moonsault by Kenny Omega off of a crane lift that was the best spot of the match, even if Le Champion and Sammy Guevara pulled out the win.

One for the Road:

AEW was recently fined $10,000 by the Maryland State Athletic Commission for their match at Full Gear between Kenny Omega and Jon Moxley. I’m sure 10k isn’t a big dent for the Khan’s, but it is interesting to note the MSAC following through with their stance against blood in matches.
