Here's your Fight Size update following WWE NXT on June 6, 2023.
- Von Wagner, alongside Mr. Stone, went to therapy for his anger management. After a few misses, he found a therapist he was willing to work with.
- Noam Dar called his group (Oro Mensah, Jakara Jackson, ad Lash Legend) a collection of shooting stars, and he praised each one of them. Dar said the group, which he named The Meta-Four, is unstoppable.
- Baron Corbin kicked WWE NXT and talked about his move to NXT. He took some shots at the current generation. He stated that NXT was the house he and the other originals built. Corbin said he wasn’t given the respect he deserves. He shifted gears and turned his attention to NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes, but Ilja Dragunov interrupted. He told Corbin he’s not weak, he’s an animalistic competitor. Dragunov said he was first in line for a title shot, and he didn’t care what Corbin has done in the past. He made it clear he was willing to go through Corbin. They agreed to face each other in a match. Trick Williams came down and blindsided Corbin. He then drove the former King of the Ring over the ropes with a clothesline.
