WWE NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 is a special PLE from NXT that took place during WrestleMania 39 weekend. The event aired on April 1, 2023, from Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, CA.
NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 | Ladder match for the NXT Women’s Championship:
Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Zoey Stark vs. Gigi Dolin vs. Tiffany Stratton vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Indy Hartwell
Ladder combat with a few spots , but falls on ladders, not falls from the top of ladders. It turns out to be a bit too much for anyone who is used to creepy moments in gimmick matches of this kind.
The exception was a takedown by Lyra Valkyria from the top of the ladder into the ring and a dive by Tiffany Stratton from the top of the ladder onto three opponents.
Who turned out to be in the right place at the right time was Indi Hartwell, who with the help of Dexter Lumis climbed to the top of the ladder and captured the belt.
Winner: Indi Hartwell (new champion)
NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 | NXT Tag Team Championship:
Gallus (Mark Coffey and Wolfgang) (c) vs. The Creed Brothers (Brutus Creed and Julius Creed) vs. The Family (Tony D’Angelo and Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo)
Another fight I knew a little while ago. There was a lack of near falls , of real emotion, and the dispute ended up being decided through the interference of Joe Coffey, who pulled the leg of Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo when he was advancing towards the settlement and allowed the Gallus to apply an impactful blow and collect the triumph.
Winners: Gallus (Mark Coffey and Wolfgang)
NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 | NXT North American Championship:
Wes Lee (c) vs. DragonLee vs. JD McDonagh vs. Ilja Dragunov vs. Axiom
Battle between five very talented fighters, but who, even so, will experience enormous difficulties when they rise to the main roster . None of them strike me as charismatic or distinctive enough, and at least Axiom doesn’t have the fighter physique that can take on heavyweights.
In a phase where Ilja Dragunov seemed ready for victory, champion Wes Lee hit the Russian with a Kardiac Kick and then advanced to the victorious settlement.
Winner : Wes Lee
Rating : 7.5/10
NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 | Unsanctioned match: Johnny Gargano vs. Grayson Waller
Johnny Gargano started with a Superkick that Grayson Waller wasn’t prepared for. Meanwhile, chairs, kendo sticks , garbage cans and a table were introduced into combat .
If Gargano had Suplexed onto a bunch of tables outside the ring, Waller responded with a Powerbomb onto a table.
At one point, Waller humiliated Gargano by hitting him in front of his wife Candice LeRae and their son, Quill. But Gargano came around and even Candice hit Waller with a kendo stick .
Shortly after, Gargano was close to triumph after a One Final Beat , while Waller was one step away from victory following a Coast to Coast Dropkick .
However, Gargano performed a Powerbomb onto a commentator’s table and Waller performed a Stunner inside the ring. At the culmination of a great battle, Gargano achieved triumph via submission, via the Gargano Escape , after hitting Waller with several chair strikes.
Winner: Johnny Gargano
NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 | NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship:
Fallon Henley and Kiana James (c) vs. Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn
Yet another combat in which the participants were physically involved even before the bell rang.
It wasn’t a bad match, but it wasn’t anything special either, with Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn taking the win after a Backstabber from Isla Dawn followed by a Swanton Bomb from Alba Fire on Kiana James.
Winners: Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn (new champions)
NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 | NXT Championship : Bron Breakker (c) vs. Carmelo Hayes
In the opening minutes it became clear that Bron Breakker is by far the stronger of the two. However, Carmelo Hayes proved capable of responding to that physical power if he increased the pace of the match. Meanwhile, Trick Williams was ejected from the ringside area.
At one point, Bron Breakker hit both Carmelo Hayes and the referee with a Spear , then knocked Carmelo out with a Camel Clutch , but there was no referee to validate the result. In the judge’s absence, Trick Williams reappeared and hit Breakker with the belt, but in the ensuing settlement Breakker kicked out .
Breakker ‘s resistance would end soon after, when Carmelo Hayes applied the Nothing But Net before advancing to the victorious settlement.
Winner: Carmelo Hayes (new champion)
