May 7, 2024 - by staff

by Jeremy Thomas

* We kick off with a montage of Wes Lee’s NXT North American title reign and his willingness to take on all comers, to his detriment. We then see his promo from last year when he said he was injured and needed surgery and time. Lee says he had three ruptured discs and needed a three-hour surgery. He says he should have heeded all the warnings and flew too close to the sun, but he still rose from the ashes. He says the kind of the West Side has returned, and it’s time to get back to work.

* Lee is backstage being applauded by the roster and he heads out for his match. He says it feels good to be home but has one goal in mind.

* It’s time for another episode of Supernova Sessions! Dar says that the dictionary defines “Trick” as a scheme, and on that note it’s time to invite their guest — but Lash points out he’s a very SPECIAL guest. Dar invites Trick out, and here he comes!

Dar welcomes Trick and tells him to take a seat. He says things are going well for him and it must be nice to be Trick Williams. He says they made him a special video to show Trick’s historic rise. It plays and we see Trick arrive at WWE HQ, followed by a montage of Trick showing up in NXT and then talking about how going into the new era he’s putting the brand on his back and NXT is in good hands.

Trick and Lash liked the video. Dar says of course they’re going to talk about it; they’re literally on a talk show. Ora and Noam goof off and Trick says he’s not here for the games; he just wants to see what’s in the envelope. Dar says this is his show and he decides when it happens. He asks Lash to reveal the envelope, and she says it’s time to reveal the truth. Jakara tells Lash to snap out of it and stand up. She shows a photo of Trick pinning Dar. Dar says that gave Trick the momentum to challenge Ilja, but that it shows everything is built on a lie. Dar says Trick is nothing but a no-good Trick and he’s going to expose him.

Trick stands up and Dar says he’s a scheme. Trick says that’s all they have for him? Ora points out that his leg was on the ropes and his title reign is flawed. Trick asks if he needs to smack Ora back to the motherland and says it’s a Trick question. He has no problem giving Dar a title match, all he has to do is ask. He says Lash is acting like it’s the Maury show and that Trick Williams is not the daddy. Dar asks what they’re talking about and Trick asks Lash if she wants to tell them or should he? They ask what’s up and Lash says “Babe — I mean, Trick!”

Trick says Lash has nothing to be afraid of, and to tell the people she calls him Trick Willy Wonka. Dar blindsides Trick and knocks him out, stars at Lash and grabs the title, raising it high as Lash looks on sadly.

* We go back to the Combine where they did a vertical jump and a broad jump. These segments corrolate the events with in-ring action. Next was a rotational punch measuring power and strength. Michin blew the competition away there, but Jaida Parker won this section as a whole.

* We hear snoring against a black screen.

* Karmen and Nattie are walking backstage and Karmen apologizes for letting Nattie down. Nattie says it’s okay and it’s about finding your edge. She says it’s about being the aggressor. A guy walks up and says don’t worry about the loss because she’s still a smokeshow and Karmen roundhouse kicks him. Nattie says that’s a start.
