Mandy Rose Loses NXT In-Ring Return Via Count Out To Sarray
If there was any notion that Mandy Rose wasn’t a heel in NXT, tonight proved everything otherwise. After months of appearing on NXT programming, Rose made her return to the ring competing in singles competition against Sarray. Rose had Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne in her corner as she taunted throughout her offensive attack against Sarray. Sarray at one point even had a Muta Lock on Rose before Mandy played dirty with a thumb to the eye. Sarray stayed on top however, nailing a dropkick to send Rose to the outside. This caused Donlin and Jayne to throw a towel over Mandy’s face and escort her away from the ring. The ref ultimately counted to ten and it secured Sarray the W.
Kyle O’Reilly Defeats Duke Hudson
Kyle O’Reilly showed his diverse set of skills against the much larger Duke Hudson this week and it ultimately paid off for him. Kyle was quick in the early stages of the match to lock in his heel hook, but Hudson focused on KOR’s injured ribs and punctuated the pain with a kitchen sink. Anytime KOR got a semblance of offense. O’Reilly nearly got Hudson to fade with a front guillotine, but Hudson powered out to slam him down. As the match wore on, Hudson began to favor his knee nd KOR took advantage of it with two rope-assisted dragon screw takedowns. He then dropped a knee off the top and cinched in a leg lock for the submission win.
