WWE NXT results: Aug. 29, 2023
The Creed Brothers def. The Dyad - Steel Cage Match
Julius and Brutus Creed are officially reinstated in NXT after the brother duo defeated Rip Fowler and Jagger Reid and seemingly destroyed the entirety of Schism in the process.
Fowler and Reid jumped the Creeds to start the match and Brutus was carried off by masked members of Schism, leaving Julius all along to The Dyad who used their chaotic nature to make the cage their home.
Julius managed to hold on long enough for Brutus to return, and the two showed why they belong in NXT as they hit a dual Brutus Ball and secured their reinstatement to NXT.
Butch def. Charlie Dempsey - NXT Global Heritage Invitational
Butch became the first Superstar to earn points in the NXT Global Heritage Invitational by defeating Charlie Dempsey thanks to his signature Bitter End.
Both Butch and Dempsey used their precise tactician skills to gain the upper hand, but the savagery and veteran savvy of The Brawling Brute proved to be too much.
The two Superstars were perched on the top rope, but a counter and some digit manipulation from Butch allowed himself enough time to hit a Bitter End to earn two points.
Lola Vice & Elektra Lopez def. Dana Brooke & Kelani Jordan
The team of Lola Vice & Elektra Lopez continued to impress as they made swift work of Dana Brooke and Kelani Jordan in tag team action.
Jordan fought valiantly after Vice and Lopez beat her down, but the odds were evened when Dana Brooke finally tagged into the match and neutralized the dangerous threat.
However, it wasn’t their night as Vice clocked Jordan with a vicious roundhouse kick that put Jordan out and gave Vice and Lopez the win.
Dijak def. Eddy Thorpe
The dominant Dijak made good on his word and crushed the high-spirited Eddy Thorpe in a brutal singles match.
Thorpe and Dijak wasted no time in brawling as they went at each other right in the middle of Thorpe’s entrance.
The action never stopped as both Superstars got some serious shots in, but ultimately it was a Dijak that came out on top after wrapping his belt around his fist and delivering a knockout blow to the unsuspecting Thorpe.
Joe Coffey def. Nathan Frazer
Joe Coffey of Gallus became the next Superstar to earn points in the NXT Global Heritage Invitational as he picked up two points thanks to a pinfall victory over Nathan Frazer.
It was a true clash of styles as Frazer’s speed matched up against Coffey’s strength, but neither Superstar could find the winning blow until late in the match.
A brilliant superkick and a high-flying splash seemed to give Frazer the win, but Coffey dug deep to hit Best For The Bells and it was enough for Coffey to earn the victory.
Kiana James def. Roxanne Perez, Gigi Dolin, and Blair Davenport - No. 1 Contendership Fatal 4-Way
Kiana James punched her ticket to the biggest match of her career as she defeated three other Superstars to become the No. 1 Contender to Tiffany Stratton’s NXT Title.
Chaos was abound in the matchup as all four Superstars flew around the ring looking to collect the win, but no one could find enough space to end the incredible match.
Ultimately it was James that broke through as she hit Perez with a twisting facebuster and Dolin with a double knee face breaker to send herself to an NXT Women’s Championship opportunity.
