Multiple New Champions Crowned At WWE NXT Stand & Deliver 2023

Which of the five titles changed hands during NXT's latest premium live event?

WWE NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 Carmelo Hayes

NXT Stand & Deliver saw titles change hands in three of the five title matches that took place Saturday afternoon.

Bron Breakker's 362-day reign as NXT Champion came to an end when Carmelo Hayes delivered the Nothing but Net and pinned the second-generation superstar in the main event. Of course, it wasn't entirely clean, as Trick Williams got involved and ejected, then returned after a referee bump to hit Breakker with the belt.

Still, Bron presented Hayes with the title afterward and lifted his hand in a show of respect.


The NXT Women's Championship also found a new owner Saturday when Indi Hartwell retrieved that title in a six-woman ladder match. Champ Roxanne Perez's status was unclear up until the week of the PLE, forcing Shawn Michaels to make a five-woman contest for the Women's Title. When Roxanne was cleared, she was added to the match to defend her championship.

Much like Hayes, Hartwell's win wasn't entirely clean. With everyone taken out on the floor, Indi had a clear shot at the title but was too knackered to climb. That's when Dexter Lumis returned to help his storyline wife, putting her on his shoulders and climbing for her, allowing Indi to grab the title and win her first singles gold in NXT.


Lastly, the NXT Women's Tag Team Championship changed hands when the odd couple that is Kiana James and Fallon Henley fell to the spooky duo of Isla Dawn and Alba Fyre. The finish came when James pleaded with Brooks Jensen to give her the purse he was holding for her, but he refused at Fallon's behest. James suffered a backstabber/swanton combo and three seconds later we had new champs.
