WWE NXT – The Great American Bash 2023 (Wrestling Review)


The Great American Bash

Austin, Texas

July 30th, 2023


WWE NXT Tag Team Title Match
Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang) (w/Joe Coffey) (c) vs. The Family (Channing Lorenzo & Tony D’Angelo)

A fine opening match. Titles needed to change here and this was fine to do it. 

2.5 / 5

Weapons Wild Match
Blair Davenport vs. Roxanne Perez

This was a fine hardcore match between these two. Either could have won though neither winning is likely to mean much. Perez getting the win though is fine in the end. 

2.75 / 5

Singles Match
Baron Corbin vs. Gable Steveson

This sucked for many different one. One, I can’t support Stevenson for his past. The crowd wasn’t having any of it either as they boo’d him. WWE will never be able to push him to much on the main shows. Even then for being his first match he didn’t do anything too impressive and ending this at a countout at 6 minutes was for sure an odd choice. 

1 / 5

WWE NXT North American Title Triple Threat Match
Dominik Mysterio (w/Rhea Ripley) (c) vs. Mustafa Ali vs. Wes Lee

A pretty standard triple threat match with all 3 guys going hard at it. Dominik clearly isn’t the greatest in ring and Rhea helping out is great heel heat which is all he really needs. The two other guys were merely just filler to make it a better match. 

3 / 5

WWE NXT Women’s Title Submission Match
Tiffany Stratton (c) vs. Thea Hail (w/Andre Chase & Duke Hudson)

A fine match where the story might just not add up. Making someone who isn’t a submission based wrestler be in this and win is an odd choice. Also having Chase throw in the towel here felt almost anticlimactic. 

2.5 / 5

WWE NXT Title Match
Carmelo Hayes (w/Trick Williams) (c) vs. Ilja Dragunov

Once this got going it was really good. They don’t exactly have good chemistry or match up well but made it work to the best they could. Dragunov is easily the future champ of NXT I hope and could be the new version of Walter. 

3.75 / 5
