WWE NXT Results (12/06) - Final Iron Survivor Challenge Entrants Revealed, Tony D'Angelo Returns To The Ring, And More

Welcome to Wrestling Inc.'s results of "WWE NXT" on December 6, 2022!

The go home show before "NXT: Deadline" will determine who the final competitors will be in the inaugural Men's and Women's Iron Survivor Challenges, as Von Wagner, Andre Chase and Axiom will face off while Indi Hartwell, Fallon Henley and Wendy Choo ngo head-to-head. The Iron Survivor Challenge will see five competitors square off with one another, with the objective being to score as many pinfalls and tap-outs as possible in a twenty five minute window. Those who are pinned or submit will head to the penalty box, but will be able to re-enter after ninety seconds. The full list of rules can be found here.

Speaking of the Men's Iron Survivor Challenges, competitors Grayson Waller, Carmelo Hayes, Joe Gacy, JD McDonagh, and the winner of the Triple Threat match will come face-to-face with one another on "The Grayson Waller Effect". The four men were handpicked by a panel of WWE legends on last week's show to participate in the match. What will happen when they all meet for the first time ahead of the historic match?

"The Don" Tony D'Angelo will be making his return to in-ring competition tonight against an opponent that has yet to be named. D'Angelo has been out of action since suffering a knee injury in September during a match with North American Champion Wes Lee, but used that time to teach a few lessons to Channing "Stacks" Lorenzo and help him pick up wins. Who will he be facing?

In addition, "NXT" Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly will be reading "A Real Christmas Story" to the WWE Universe to kick off the holiday season.

We are live! Vic Joseph and Booker T greet audiences at home as Von Wagner, Axiom and Andre Chase make their way to the ring.

Grayson Waller Hosts The Grayson Waller Effect With His Iron Survivor Challenge Opponents

We then head to the participants in the Men's Iron Survivor Challenge in the ring and on the set of "The Grayson Waller Effect". Waller hypes up the match and says they will all be linked together forever. He says he's honored to share the ring with all of them, then introduces Axiom, Joe Gacy, Carmelo Hayes, and JD McDonagh while poking fun at them. Waller calls for a question and one appears on the screen: What advantage do you have that will make you the first Iron Survivor?

Waller answers first and says he knows how to survive because he was on Survivor. Hayes cuts him off and says there was a reason he was the first participant. He says he never misses before McDonagh cuts him off. He brings up the fact he lost the North American Championship twice and tells him that he's been protected since day one in WWE. He says he can go through 25 minutes of hell because he has a bigger tank of gas than any other guy. Waller says he doesn't need 25 minutes and Hayes says he's never even gone 25 minutes. Gacy then answers the question and says when the stakes are high, people trample one another. He says his practices will allow him to see the field and act accordingly. Axiom says the Iron Survivor Challenge forces competitors to innovate, which is his greatest advantage. Hayes calls him a nerd.

Waller pulls up another question: What position would you like to enter the match?

Axiom says first or second to get the most amount of falls. Gacy says that also gives him the greatest chance to accumulate the most penalties. Axiom says ideally, McDonagh would enter second because he hasn't forgotten that he sidelined him a few weeks ago. McDonagh says he should be thanking him it was only weeks and says he will put him in the hospital. Gacy eggs McDonagh on, then says he wants to be fourth because he will take advantage of everyone else being fatigued and put them in the penalty box. Hayes says McDonagh and Gacy have both shot their shots while Waller and Axiom aren't high enough to do so. He says he never misses, but Waller cuts him off. He says he's the favorite.

McDonagh headbutts Waller and the five men brawl with one another. Axiom takes out Hayes with a dive over the top rope while Gacy and McDonagh knock one another out of the ring. Waller takes everyone out with a flip over the top rope. The five men continue to brawl and officials run to the ring to break them up as the show goes off the air.
