Last week, Hit Row introduced themselves to the NXT audience. They are led by Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott, and the group is rounded out by the trio of AJ“Top Dolla” Francis and Brianna “B-Fab” Brandy and Ashante “Thee” Adonis. They are as good at wrestling as they are music, and look to show this tonight as Ashante Adonis & AJ Francis get into the mix in tag team action.
Anyone who watches 205 Live knows Adonis is legit, having learned a lot in matches with the likes of The Brian Kendrick. Meanwhile, Francis is one of the biggest men on the NXT roster, and that alone makes him a threat. Hit Row is set to make an impact, and it starts tonight as they take on Ariya Daivari & Tony Nese.
Hit Row Don’t Even Leave First Gear As They Dismantle Nese & Daivari
Adonis would start up with Nese, and he’s no stranger to either opponent. He’d catch Nese with a flapjack, before kipping up. Nese had went into the wrong corner, and Top Dolla threw Nese across the ring. Daivari tagged in, but he’d simply slam both men into the mat with a combination that looked like both Wade Barrett’s Wasteland & Mark Henry’s World Strongest Slam.
Nese took a huge lariat, before Adonis tagged back in to keep attacking Daivari. Daivari got some hits in, before taking the Air Drop. Nese was taken out with the Long Kiss Goodnight superkick, before Top Dolla turned a Samoan Drop into a brainbuster to take Daivari out.
An absolute squash, with Nese & Daivari looking more like local enhancement talent than accomplished stars. Top Dolla showed some insane power, and Adonis showed his explosive offense. For what it was, this was perfectly done. As a match, this wasn’t great. Match Rating: 1/5 (*)
After the match, Swerve said that it doesn’t matter who wins the main event over the NXT North American Championship. Both Bronson Reed & Johnny Gargano are on his radar, and he’ll be looking to get the next shot. Will Hit Row gain some gold soon? Let us know what you think in the comment section down below.
