WWE NXT 2.0 #36
Ort: WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida, USA
First broadcast: May 17, 2022
NXT 2.0 kicks off after a recap of the first matches of the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament with Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams indoors. The two are annoyed by Solo Sikoa, because he should finally join the queue. In addition, Cameron Grimes will lose the NXT North American Championship to him again. Then our first match begins!
Tag Team Match
Cameron Grimes & Solo Sikoa defeated Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams via Sikoa pinning Hayes after a uso splash.
Match time: 9:57
Sikoa then snatched the North American Championship from the referee’s hand before handing it over to Cameron Grimes in person.
McKenzie Mitchell finds himself with NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly (Kit Wilson & Elton Prince) who can’t understand the respect for the Creed Brothers. The two could never hold a candle to them and certainly not take the titles, which they want to prove with “In Your House”. It is all the more convenient for them that the Viking Raiders will do a little preparatory work beforehand.
NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament – First Round – Singles Match
Lash Legend defeated Tatum Paxley via a pump kick pin.
Match time: 3:50
– Lash Legend meets the winner between Roxanne Perez and Kiana James in the semifinals.
Tony D’Angelo is confident of beating Santos Escobar today. However, he lets Stacks and Two Dimes know that he wants to compete alone.
Now NXT Champion Bron Breakker goes to the ring. But he can’t lose many words, because Joe Gacy quickly appears on the gallery, accompanied by his two druids. Gacy says he and Breakker have been through a lot, but he doesn’t hold grudges. But he wants to give people what they want, which is a rematch between the two. Breakker immediately agrees, but Gacy wants to raise the pot a bit. After everything he did to Breakker and his father, he could understand if Breakker would beat him up. Therefore he demands that the title would also change in the event of a disqualification. Breakker also accepts this clause.
Indi Hartwell realizes they’ve come from the top to the absolute bottom. But she will not sit there, but will fight for herself alone. She challenges Mandy Rose.
Wes Lee stands by McKenzie Mitchell and is disappointed that Xyon Quinn did not receive medical clearance. He is not surprised, because once again he avoids him. But as soon as Quinn meets him in the ring, he’ll give him a good spanking. Nathan Frazer comes along and offers himself as a replacement opponent for Lee. The latter is impressed by the courage the Brit is showing, but points out that he has a lot of pent-up anger that he doesn’t want to take out on Frazer. He, on the other hand, is looking forward to the challenge.
Tag Team Match
The Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar) defeated Diamond Mine: The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed, w/ Roderick Strong & Damon Kemp) via a pin by Erik to Julius Creed after an assisted powerbomb.
Match time: 12:47
– Before the finish, Roderick Strong tried to intervene again, but Julius Creed was able to block his attack and knock Strong out of the ring. This gave the Viking Raiders an opportunity to clinch victory.
Santos Escobar tells his cronies that he wants to face Tony D’Angelo alone today. Del Toro and Wilde don’t think this is a good idea, after all they have an ax to grind with D’Angelo and his companions, but Tony D reminds them of the most important rule. Business should never become emotional. Besides, they all knew exactly what to do.
Tiffany Stratton and Grayson Waller are in the locker room. Both are angry about Stratton’s absence from the Breakout Tournament, after all there is no bigger breakout star than them. At the same time, Stratton is extremely annoyed by the situation surrounding Andre Chase and asks Waller to take care of what he wants to do immediately.
A few minutes ago, Bron Breakker left the arena for the parking lot after not accepting Joe Gacy’s invitation but now finding himself in another title match against him on “In Your House.” Duke Hudson interrupts Breakker’s speech, whereupon Breakker proposes a match between the two. Hudson finds this proposal interesting and accepts it … but only for next week.
Grayson Waller defeated Andre Chase (w/ Bodhi Hayward) via pin after rolling stunner.
Match time: 4:13
Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne watch a video of Kayden Carter and Katana Chance announcing their intention to win the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship. Mandy Rose also comes along and complains about Indi Hartwell. All three recognize that it is missing, which is why there is always respect for the champions. They now want to claim this and this will start with Indi Hartwell.
In the locker room, the whole Diamond Mine is discussing what just happened in the ring. Julius and Brutus are unhappy with Strong’s renewed intervention, while Strong insists that the two of them should listen to him since he is the leader of the Diamond Mine and without him they would never be able to defeat Pretty Deadly. The Creeds then storm off before Strong tells Damon Kemp to go after them. Now Strong meets Pretty Deadly, who make fun of Strong’s failure as a leader. In addition, the Creeds could never defeat the two on “In Your House”, no matter what Strong gave them along the way. Strong, on the other hand, challenges the Brits to a tag team match, which he wants to fight alongside Damon Kemp. Pretty Deadly accept the match, which is scheduled to take place next week.
NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament – First Round – Singles Match
Roxanne Perez (fka Rok-C) defeated Kiana James (fka Xtina Kay) via pin after popping Rox (Code Red).
Match time: 5:15
– Roxanne Perez meets Lash Legend in the semifinals.
Malik Blade and Edris Enofé dressed up as Santos Escobar and Tony D’Angelo backstage and make fun of the two. Two Dimes and Stacks arrive and seem little amused and issue a challenge to a tag team match next week. Accept Blade and Enofé.
Roxanne Perez stands by McKenzie Mitchell and is being asked about today’s match. Cora Jade joins in and happily congratulates Perez. Elektra Lopez enters the picture and tries to dampen the mood by belittling Perez and Jade. In addition, tonight, despite the win, does not belong to Perez, but to her Legado. She also wants to defeat Alba Fyre in the ring next week!
Wes Lee vs. Nathan Frazer ended in a no contest after Von Wagner attacked both opponents.
Match time: 4:21
Von Wagner first gets rid of Nathan Frazer before turning his attention to Wes Lee. He picks it up and throws it out of the ring onto the commentary desk, where it crashes down. Mr. Stone enters the ring and celebrates with his protégé.
Nathan Frazer and Wes Lee arrive backstage and pass Sanga there. The three strike up a conversation, with Wes Lee misinterpreting a saying about his size and feeling disrespected by Sanga. Frazer tries to calm him down, but Lee’s already up to 180, so Frazer lets him know that this is a matter he doesn’t want anything to do with. Sanga also tries to calm down, but Lee refuses to be told and challenges Sanga to a match.
Next week Bron Breakker and Duke Hudson meet in the ring. In addition, Mandy Rose wants to get the respect she deserves from Indi Hartwell. Elektra Lopez wants to bring a win for the Legado when she meets Alba Fyre. But now it’s time for today’s Main Event!
Santos Escobar defeated Tony D’Angelo via pin after hitting with brass knuckles.
Match time: 12:49
– Before the finish, Tony D’Angelo searched the ring steps for his crowbar, but found nothing there. Cruz Del Toro and Joaquin Wilde appeared on stage holding the crowbar. Stacks and Two Dimes then launched an attack on Del Toro and Wilde, and Escobar used the distraction to use his brass knuckles.
Now in a dark room with his druids, Joe Gacy says Bron Breakker can’t control his anger, either next week or on In Your House. This would enable him to rule the world. Gacy starts laughing and the camera zooms out to reveal him on top of a skyscraper. With these images, NXT 2.0 concludes for this week.
