WWE NXT – Stand And Deliver 2023 (Wrestling Review)


Stand And Deliver

Los Angeles, California

April 1st, 2023


Mixed Eight Man Tag Team Match
Chase U (Andre Chase, Duke Hudson & Thea Hail) & Tyler Bate vs. Schism (Ava, Jagger Reid, Joe Gacy & Rip Fowler)

A fun opening match that the crowd was hot for. The Chase U t shirt angle here worked great and had the crowd going. Fun match overall here as well. 

3.5 / 5


WWE NXT Women’s Title Six Way Ladder Match
Roxanne Perez (c) vs. Zoey Stark vs. Gigi Dolin vs. Indi Hartwell vs. Lyra Valkyria vs. Tiffany Stratton

A fantastic womens ladder match. Nonstop action, big spots, and everyone had their moment. Some close calls here and Indi winning wasn’t expected and sort of lackluster but overall a great match. 

4 / 5

WWE NXT Tag Team Title Triple Threat Match
Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) (c) vs. The Creed Brothers (Brutus Creed & Julius Creed) (w/Ivy Nile) vs. The D’Angelo Family (Channing Lorenzo & Tony D’Angelo)

The double electric chair was impressive based off holding them up even if they missed the execution. Otherwise this match was all about the end of match return and after a banger opening match this just didn’t hold up.

2.5 / 5

WWE NXT North American Title Fatal Five Way Match
Wes Lee (c) vs. JD McDonagh vs. Ilja Dragunov vs. Dragon Lee vs. Axiom

A really good fast paced match. A lot of close falls and break ups here which worked because the match could have went a few different ways. Every guy got a bunch of time to shine and spots in as well. 

4 / 5

Unsanctioned Match
Johnny Gargano vs. Grayson Waller

Gargano being one of NXTs poster boys took on Waller who was trash talking it. The crowd was into this and it was a fine brawl. Good weapon use but hated the announce table spot just because the table falls apart and doesn’t have the same effect anymore. 

3 / 5

WWE NXT Women’s Tag Team Title Match
Fallon Henley & Kiana James (w/Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs) (c) vs. Alba Fyre & Isla Dawn

An entertaining match. They kept the pace well and kept it short enough since the crowd wasn’t super keen on who they were they were being NXT UK. The crowd wasn’t always into this it seemed but they had a fair amount of spots I liked and some I thought looked really bad. This was more fun than it wasn’t though. 

3.25 / 5

WWE NXT Title Match
Bron Breakker (c) vs. Carmelo Hayes (w/Trick Williams)

A match that felt like a main event match. It was fine as a match but Hayes winning was smart. He’s super over and has the chance to have a lot of great matches. Bron looked good here defending the belt too and either do random feuds for now or go to main roster. 

3.5 / 5
