WWE NXT results, July 29, 2020: Lumis locks up TakeOver

Dexter Lumis claimed the second spot in the North American
Title Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver XXX with a Triple Threat
Match win against Timothy Thatcher and Finn Blor.
Elsewhere, NXT Champion Keith Lee responded to Karrion Kross
and received a grave ultimatum in return, NXT Womens
Champion Io Shirai & Tegan Nox scored a win over Candice
LeRae & Dakota Kai, and The Undisputed ERA targeted

NXT Womens Champion Io Shirai & Tegan Nox def. Candice
LeRae & Dakota Kai

kick off NXT while Shirai was making her entrance, and the
scene quickly devolved into disarray with the other two
competitors joining them for a melee before the action
officially started. Kai and Candice LeRae worked well
together early on, isolating Tegan Nox until Shirai lit up
the ring and her opponents with her athleticism. The Captain
of Team Kick responded by deftly spoiling a potential
moonsault attempt. Kai forcibly tagged in LeRae, largely
leaving The Poison Pixie to fend for herself, which ended
with a pinfall loss after Shirais moonsault.

Johnny Gargano def. Roderick Strong

Johnny Gargano and Roderick Strong, two of NXTs proudest
and most skilled Superstars, tactfully battled for bragging
rights after coming up short in last weeks Triple Threat
Match won by Bronson Reed. The technical wrestling clinic
featured both men demonstrating the depths of their
repertoires, with Strong avoiding dire straits by rolling
out of the Gargano Escape. He had no answer for Garganos
increased intensity on the outside, though, as Johnny
Wrestling repeatedly smashed Strong into the ring post and
plexiglass before planting him with the One Final Beat DDT
for the victory.

Mercedes Martinez def. Shotzi Blackheart

If one match is any indication, Mercedes Martinezs decision
to sign with The Robert Stone Brand appears to be a smart
one. Martinez impressed against Shotzi Blackheart, slamming
her with an innovative, modified Air Raid Crash for the win,
much to the delight of Stone and Aliyah.

Keith Lee called out Karrion Kross

NXT Champion Keith Lee, still clearly upset by what
transpired last week, issued a fiery address to Karrion
Kross. What he got instead was Cameron Grimes, who picked an
inopportune time to step to The Limitless One, and he felt
Lees wrath. However, Kross answered with a message of his
own, issuing a stern ultimatum to Lee demanding the NXT
Title opportunity hes seeking.

NXT Tag Team Champions Imperium def. Ever-Rise

Imperium made quick work of Ever-Rise, putting them down
after hitting the European Bomb on Chase Parker. But before
they could soak in their victory, they were savagely
ambushed by Undisputed ERA, who made it clear they still
consider themselves to be NXTs most dominant faction.

Isaiah Swerve Scott def. Jake Atlas

Isaiah Swerve Scott prevailed in this fast-paced encounter
with a win over Jake Atlas that was crucial for NXT
Cruiserweight Championship positioning. Swerve fought off
Atlas patented cartwheel DDT before blasting him with the
House Call on the outside of the ring and dropping him with
the JML Driver.

Dexter Lumis def. Timothy Thatcher and Finn Blor in a
Triple Threat Match to earn a spot in the North American
Title Ladder Match at TakeOver XXX

Dexter Lumis wowed from the get-go, dazzling even his
opponents early when he landed on his feet following a
senton over the top rope. The matchup between The Tortured
Artist, Finn Blor and Timothy Thatcher presented three
unique styles and created a frenzied conclusion. Lumis
masterfully countered Thatchers double underhook into the
Kata Gatame before being splattered by Blors Coup de
Grace, though the Professor of Pain would break up The
Princes ensuing pin attempt and lock him in a grapevine
ankle lock. But Lumis swooped in, taking advantage of
Thatchers blind spot by locking him in the Kata Gatame to
win by technical submission before Blor could wriggle free
from Thatcher and break it up.
