The Wrestling Roundup is here to bring you all the news and rumors you need to know in one place.
WWE NXT Results
We are just over a week away from NXT bringing back Halloween Havoc. On the card for Wednesday was an NXT Tag Team Championship match and more build-up to their big Halloween show. What else went down on NXT this week? Here are the full results:
- KUSHIDA def. Tommaso Ciampa & Velveteen Dream
- Ember Moon def. Jessi Kamea
- Bronson Reed def. Austin Theory twice in a row
- Legado del Fantasma def. Isaiah “Swerve” Scott, Ashante “Thee” Adonis, & Jake Atlas
- Ever-Rise def. Drake Maverick & Killian Dain
- Kacy Catanzaro def. Xia Li
- Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch def. Breezango (c) to win the NXT Tag Team Championships
A mysterious masked man was a pain in the side of Undisputed Era all evening. Roderick Strong was taken out, so they were unable to compete for the tag titles. Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch were able to take the spot, and then the masked man assisted them in winning the tag titles. That masked man: Pat McAfee. He is not done messing with the Undisputed Era.
And that my friends..

AEW started to also fill out the Full Gear card. It was announced that Jon Moxley will defend his AEW Championship against Eddie Kingston on the show. Sammy Guevara will also battle Matt Hardy in an Elite Deletion match. It is truly looking like an excellent card.

AJ Gray Tests Positive for COVID-19
Independent wrestler AJ Gray announced on Wednesday that he has tested positive for COVID-19 (h/t WrestlingInc). Gray is experiencing no symptoms at this time. He wrestled multiple times at The Collective a few weeks ago, but says that he knows where he contracted it and tested negative three times after The Collective. Here’s to a speedy recovery for Gray.
Impact Releases Daga
Daga has been released from his Impact Wrestling contract (h/t Fightful). He had asked for his release a while ago, but Impact had continued to try and negotiate with him. Daga recently married Tessa Blanchard, who herself was released from Impact this past June. A talented wrestler, Daga will surely find a new home in a new company sometime soon.

Hey look, Sami Zayn is right about stuff again:
Military flyovers during sporting events are indeed expensive, taxpayer-funded propaganda that have nothing to do with sports, you’re just not allowed to point that out. https://t.co/BUa9HxipLd
