WWE NXT results: Sept. 26, 2023
Butch def. Joe Coffey - NXT Global Heritage Invitational Finals
The inaugural NXT Global Heritage Invitational came to a thrilling as Butch defeated Joe Coffey to earn a championship opportunity at NXT No Mercy against Heritage Cup Champion, Noam Dar.
Wolfgang and Mark Coffey ended up being ejected from ringside and that evened up the odds for the Brawling Brute in a big way.
After kicking out of a brutal Best of The Bells, Butch rallied and managed to hit the Bitter End to punch his ticket to No Mercy.
Trick Williams def. Joe Gacy
Schism continued its free fall as Joe Gacy fell to Trick Williams in a hotly contested singles matchup.
Gacy was more hostile than usual, letting out guttural roars every time he locked Williams in a hold, but in the end, it just wasn’t his night.
The leader of Schism went for his signature Upside Down, but in true Trick Willy style, he countered into a huge running knee and picked up the win.
Baron Corbin def. Josh Briggs
Despite his best effort, Josh Briggs came up short against Baron Corbin in a physical matchup.
Corbin has bad mouthed the NXT locker room and Briggs stepped up to the challenge of proving him wrong, but it was easier said than done.
Ultimately, Corbin proved to be too strong, too powerful, and too experienced as he hit End of Days to win the bout.
OTM def. Hank Walker & Tank Ledger
The team of Bronco Nima & Lucien Price earned a seat at The Family’s dinner table after dispatching Hank & Tank in a tag team match.
With SCRYPTS in their corner, the team now known as OTM aka Out The Mud delivered a statement by crushing Hank & Tank and pinning them in front of a stunned NXT Universe.
Eddy Thorpe def. Dijak - Strap Match
Eddy Thorpe got his payback against Dijak by defeating the bringer of Hard Justice in a flesh-ripping Strap Match.
Thorpe was clearly motivated as Dijak desecrated his sacred land two weeks prior and the Native Superstar used the strap to exact some vengeance on Dijak.
The match came to a thrilling conclusion when Thorpe, already full of lashes himself, hit a remarkable diving elbow to pick up the win.
After the match, Dijak launched an assault on Thorpe and left him down and battered.
Thea Hail def. Dani Palmer
Chase U’s Thea Hail debuted her brand new adult look as she took out the upstart Dani Palmer in a matchup between two of NXT’s youngest Superstars.
Decked out in leather and lace, Hail was still her impressive self in the ring, using her mat technician skills to keep the athletic Palmer down on the canvas.
Trick Williams def. Dragon Lee, Tyler Bate, & Axiom - Fatal 4-Way Match
Trick Williams punched his ticket to NXT No Mercy where he’ll face NXT North American Champion “Dirty” Dominik Mysterio for a chance at his first taste of gold.
It wasn’t an easy task as Williams had to overcome Tyler Bate, Dragon Lee, and Axiom in a Fatal 4-Way Match, but he weathered the early storm brought on by his quicker opponents.
In the end, Williams outlasted the mayhem, advantageously fell onto a downed Axiom, and earned a championship opportunity at NXT No Mercy.
