WWE NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver Night 2 will go down tonight and Ringside News has got you covered with our exclusive live play-by-play results coverage.
Start time for Stand & Deliver is 7:00 PM EST, with the Kickoff Pre-show starting at 6:00 PM EST. Match-by-match highlights and results from the show will take place on this very page. Feel free to leave any reactions in the comment section below.
Night 1 of Stand & Deliver was a brilliant show with Walter Vs. Tommaso Ciampa the clear stand-out match. Night 2 promises to be every bit as exciting, if not more so. The main event tonight will see the much-anticipated showdown between Karrion Kross and Finn Balor with the NXT Championship on the line. Is time up for Balor’s title reign? Or will the Irishman be the first to defeat Kross? Let us know your predictions below!
The NXT North American Championship is also on the line tonight. Bronson Reed won the Gauntlet Match last night to earn a shot against Johnny Gargano. Despite the obvious size difference, Gargano was more than confident last night, but will he still be North American Championship by the end of the night? Of course, there will be two other titles matches tonight, with Santos Escobar facing Jordan Devlin in a ladder match to determine the true Cruiserweight Champion, and the NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions, Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon facing Candace LeRae and Indi Hartwell of The Way.
The other match tonight is one with more than a hefty dose of anticipation. Former best friends and allies, Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole will face-off in an unsanctioned match that promises to be the most intense and violent of the entire week. And that’s the entire card for Night 2 of Stand & Deliver. This has all the potential to be the best show of WrestleMania week and we’ve you got covered all night. Just hit the link below, and enjoy the show!
Sam Roberts and Jimmy Smith are back to host the pre-show for Night 2 of Stand & Deliver. They list the matches on tonight’s show and talk about how great last night was.
We see a video package for Finn Balor Vs. Karrion Kross. Smith says Kross is trying to win back the title he never lost and he’s been holding that anger. Smith says Kross is only concerned with power and aggression and that’s his startegy heading into tonight.
Samoa Joe sat down with Karrion Kross and Scarlett for an interview. Joe asks what it was like for Kross to have to relinquish the title after TakeOver 30 and he says it sucked. He says people think he just showed-up in NXT and won the title but it took a lot of years. And in that moment he felt like it was all for nothing. Joe asks how Kross will beat Balor and he says he will cut the ring off and bomb him. He says Balor won’t be able to control the pace or drag him into deep waters. Joe asks how it would feel for him to win the title again and he says he didn’t come to NXT to fit-in, he wants to lead the pack. Joe says Balor called him emotional and Kross says he doesn’t care what anyone thinks of him, he’s here to be a Champion.
Next, Finn Balor sat down with Samoa Joe and they start off by mentioning their history. Joe asks if Kross could put a blemish on Finn’s near-perfect record. Balor says he’s proven himself time and again and if anyone needs to stand and deliver, it’s not him. Joe asks about the similarities between Balor and Kross, both having to relinquish titles due to shoulder injuries. Balor says it’s not ideal to lose a title that way and it took him a long time to get back to where he wanted, but it is what it is and he’s in Kross’ way. Joe says Kross is ferocious, so how does Balor win? Finn says he’s beat big men before and he takes them to places they’ve never been. Joe says he sees a fire in Finn’s eyes like never before, so what’s driving it? Finn says he’s been a Champion all over the world, for twenty years and somehow he’s the underdog against Kross. It pisses him off and tonight he’ll prove himself again.
Shotzi Blackheart and Ember Moon are interviewed backstage and asked about The Way claiming they’re winning tonight. Shotzi laughs loud and Ember says it’s clear The Way still haven’t found their minds. Moon says they’re going to TCB and steal the damn show. Shotzi shouts “welcome to the fire pit” and howls.
Mickie James joins the pre-show to discuss the Women’s Tag Team Titles match. James says the growth of the women’s division is incredible and having tag titles gives the ladies something more to fight for. She says Shotzi and Ember are opposites but fit together so well and The Way need to take them seriously. Jimmy Smith says Candace is a great leader and Indi is the better athlete, and they live together, so they’re a good team. Mickie says tonight could see the Golden Gargano’s come to fruition.
We see a video package for the Cruiserweight Championship ladder match between Jordan Devlin and Santos Escobar. Sam Roberts says this is the match he’s looking forward to most because it’s so rare that you have two guys who both have legimate claims to a title. We see a clip from the Global Press Conference where Devlin says he is worried that people will turn on NXT, see Escobar, and think that’s what cruiserweight wrestling is. Escobar says it literally comes from lucha libre, which he is royalty of, and Devlin says it may have been born in Mexico but it was perfected in Ireland. The panel talk a little about the dominance of Santos Escobar and how a ladder match is a wild card.
Breezango Vs. Killian Dain & Drake Maverick
Number One Contenders Match
The match gets underway with Dain and Tyler Breeze, who is dressed like a pirate. Breeze ducks a lock-up, then grabs the wrist and tags Fandango but Dain throws Breeze across the ring and he rolls out. Dain hits a hip toss to Fandango, then tags Maverick. Fandango drops Drake and dances, then Maverick gets the better of him and he dances. Dain tags back in and takes control of Fandango, but then tags Maverick and throws him into Fandango. Fandango catches Maverick with a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker for a two-count.
Fandango beats Drake into the buckles and punches him, then tags Breeze. Tyler hits a snap suplex for a two-count. Fandango tags back in and hits a stalling vertical suplex to Maverick for a two.

Maverick and Dain have earned a title shot against MSK, who won the vacant NXT Tag Team Titles last night.
We see a highlight package of last night’s TakeOver. William Regal is interviewed backstage and he says everyone killed it last night and he can’t wait to see what happens tonight. Regal says he had police escorts for O’Reilly and Cole earlier today because he wanted to take every possible precaution. Regal is asked if he fined Cole for laying his hands on him last week and Regal smiles, then says no, Cole won’t be fined.
The final match discussed is the unsanctioned bout between Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole. Samoa Joe sat down with Kyle O’Reilly and asked him what’s changed for him lately. O’Reilly says that’s hard to answer because it’s been such a crazy year. He’s having an internal struggle because he loved being in The Undisputed Era but something had to give. He strayed so far from himself that if he was going to save his soul he had to disengage. Joe says Kyle’s actions aren’t reflecting his words. O’Reilly says he’s right but to beat Adam Cole he has to sink to his level. Joe asks if O’Reilly has what it takes and he says he definitely does, and he plans on this being a short match.
Finally, Samoa Joe sits down with Adam Cole. Joe says he’s followed Cole for years and he’s always been impressed by the poise he’s shown over the years. But as of late that hasn’t been the case. Cole reiterates how personal this match is and says O’Reilly is an ingrate. Joe asks if Cole is out to prove he’s the backbone of TUE, to which Cole says no-one disputes that fact. Cole is asked about his reckless behaviour and he says Kyle started the whole thing by trying to run him off the road and threatening to show-up at his house. Cole says he’ll be satisfied after the match when O’Reilly can say to himself that he should never have messed with him. Joe asks if they could ever co-exist again and Cole says if O’Reilly apologises and understands the type of imbecile he’s been, then maybe.
That’s it for the TakeOver Kick-Off Show. The main card is beginning right now and we’ve got all the results. Just hit that refresh button below and enjoy!
