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

AEW Dynamite Results

The build to Double or Nothing continued on AEW Dynamite this week. A fatal fourway to determine a number one contender for the AEW Women’s Championship was one of the biggest pieces of the build on the card. MJF was back in action and Chris Jericho got his hands on Pineapple Pete. What else was on the card? Here are the results:

  • Best Friends def. Jurassic Express
  • Hikaru Shida def. Penelope Ford, Britt Baker, & Kris Statlander to earn a title shot at Double or Nothing
  • Kenny Omega & Matt Hardy def. Santana & Ortiz
  • MJF def. Lee Johnson
  • Chris Jericho def. Pineapple Pete
  • Brodie Lee def. Christopher Daniels

Iron Mike Tyson is coming to AEW. The former boxing heavyweight champion will present the TNT Championship to the winner of Cody Rhodes & Lance Archer. It isn’t the person I would have expected AEW to bring in, but Tyson will still draw some interest from fans who have yet to check out the product.

The Elite (plus Matt Hardy) will face The Inner Circle at Double or Nothing in a Stadium Stampede match. It will take place in the empty stadium next to Daly’s Place where the Jacksonville Jaguars play. The rules of the match are still relatively unknown, but it appears to be a street fight. Jericho and The Inner Circle were interrupted by Vanguard 1 and introduced him to the sixth member of the Circle: a baseball bat named Floyd. They destroyed Vanguard 1, and who knew that destroying a drone would get me more invested in a match but here we are.

Nyla Rose will defend the AEW Women’s Championship against Hikaru Shida. The hottest female act in the company right now is Britt Baker, but that won’t work as a heel-heel match-up. Does that mean AEW may use Shida as a transitional champion to get the belt on Baker? They might, or they might just hope Shida is the person to get the best match out of Rose yet.

NXT Results

This week’s NXT saw the Tag Team Championships defended and the continuation of the NXT Interim Cruiserweight Championship Tournament. What else did the black and gold brand have in store? Read on for the results and takeaways from this week’s NXT:

In Your House is making a triumphant return! Announced by Triple H, Shawn Michaels and Road Dogg, NXT will present NXT: In Your House on Sunday, June 7th. We’re stuck in our houses, so they’re bringing back In Your House. This is content I can get behind.

The biggest storyline development on the night was the loss and dissolution of the Riddle-Thatcher partnership. Their tag title defense opened the night, and this team fell apart a lot faster than people anticipated. We all could tell Riddle got on Thatcher’s nerve, but it only took one inadvertent shot from a monkey flip to have Thatcher walk out on Riddle. Imperium took advantage and are our new NXT Tag Team Champions.

Riddle found Thatcher post match and confronted him, leading to our main event match. The Original Bro won the contest, but it was Thatcher who won the night. He tried to rip Riddle’s arm off and showed great ferocity in dismantling his former partner.

During his match against Cameron Grimes, Finn Balor found out who attacked him. It was Damian Priest who was out looking to make a name for himself. He cost Balor his match against Grimes, and then laid out the Prinxe and sat over him to explain his actions. A Balor-Priest feud sounds very intriguing, even if it does seem to mark the end of heel Balor.

The NXT Cruiserweight Tournament will come down to the final day of matches. Jake Atlas leads Group A after a win, but can be passed by KUSHIDA or tied by Drake Maverick depending on their match next week. Group B will come down to the winner of El Hijo del Fantasma and Akira Tozawa.

One for the Road:

The field for the Double or Nothing Casino Ladder Match continues to fill out. Orange Cassidy & Rey Fenix are the latest added to the field, joining Darby Allin & Colt Cabana.
