The No Quarter Catch Crew (NQCC) is an American professional wrestling stable currently performing in WWE on the NXT brand. The group currently consists of second leader Charlie Dempsey, Myles Borne and Tavion Heights. Dempsey is a former one-time NXT Heritage Cup Champion.

History[edit]

At the end of 2022, Drew Gulak was assigned to the NXT brand, where he played the role of Hank Walker's mentor. On February 14, 2023, episode of NXT, Gulak turned on Walker and aligned with Charlie Dempsey to form the No Quarter Catch Crew (NQCC).[1] On the August 8 episode of NXT, Damon Kemp assisted both Gulak and Dempsey during their tag team match, officially joining NQCC. On the September 12 episode of NXT, Myles Borne joined the NQCC by turning on both Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen during their six-man tag team match.[2]

On the February 27, 2024, episode of NXT, Dempsey defeated The Meta-Four's Noam Dar 2–1 under British Rounds Rules to win the NXT Heritage Cup.[3] The following week at NXT: Roadblock, NQCC announced that the NXT Heritage Cup will be defended by the whole stable under the "Catch Clause".[4][5] Under the Catch Clause, NQCC as a whole referred to themselves as the NXT Heritage Cup Champions but WWE only recognize Dempsey as the official champion. The Catch Clause was first invoked on the March 19 episode of NXT, with Gulak defeating Chase University's Riley Osborne 2–1 to successfully defend the Cup in his final NXT appearance.[6] On the April 16 episode of NXT, The D'Angelo Family leader Tony D'Angelo revealed that his Family were hired by NQCC to (kayfabe) eliminate Gulak. In reality, Gulak was written off television after he was accused by Ronda Rousey of an alleged inappropriate behavior backstage. His contract with WWE was not renewed and he was released from the company on May 3.[7] D'Angelo demanded payment for the job but NQCC refused, causing a brawl between the two factions[8] and resulting in a six-man tag team match between the two factions the following week at Week 1 of Spring Breakin', which was won by The D'Angelo Family (D'Angelo, Channing "Stacks" Lorenzo and Luca Crusifino).[9] On the May 7 episode of NXT, Dempsey and Borne faced Tyson Dupont and Tyrek Igwe in a tag team match. Before the match started, the match referee was declared "unavailable" and Stacks was announced as the special guest referee, costing Dempsey and Borne the match through a fast count. After the match, an irate Dempsey gave D'Angelo a title shot at the NXT Heritage Cup as payment due to The D'Angelo Family and invoked the Catch Clause, which was nullified when D'Angelo and his Family kidnapped Kemp and Borne later that night.[10] On the following week, D'Angelo defeated Dempsey 2–1 to win the Cup, ending Dempsey's reign at 76 days.[11]

After the loss of the Cup, a deluded Dempsey assumed a leadership role after declaring that the stable needs structure and a chain of command while emulating The D'Angelo Family's style of running the NQCC to Kemp's disapproval. He then ordered Kemp to face D'Angelo in a rematch for the Cup on the June 4 episode of NXT but Kemp lost the match 0–2.[12][13] On the June 25 episode of NXT, Tavion Heights defeated Kemp in an initiation match to officially join the stable.[14] On July 8, Kemp announced his departure from the WWE after his contract was not renewed. Kemp's departure was confirmed on the following day's episode of NXT where he was taken out (off-screen) by NQCC.[15][16] Two days later on TNA Impact!, Dempsey made his Total Nonstop Action Wrestling (TNA) in-ring debut where he defeated The Rascalz's Zachary Wentz.[17]
