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.
Well here we are, the first episode of NXT 2.0. WWE is soft-rebooting NXT with a fresh new logo and colour scheme, and we’re even going to get a brand new Champion tonight. Unfortunately, Samoa Joe was forced to relinquish the NXT Championship before ever defending it, so now we’re getting a Fatal 4-Way between LA Knight, Kyle O’Reilly, Tommaso Ciampa, and Pete Dunne to crown the new Champion. Who do you want to see walk out with the gold? Let us know below!
Raquel Gonzalez Vs. Franky Monet was supposed to take place tonight but the bout was cancelled or delayed to a later date. However we do know B-Fab of Hit Row will make her in-ring debut tonight. And the only other confirmed segment we have for tonight’s show is the wedding between Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis. Last week we saw the bachelor and bachelorette party highlights and tonight the wedding itself. Will they actually tie the know? Time will tell.
And that’s the preview for tonight’s NXT. Our live coverage will begin from 8PM right here. Let us know if you’re excited about any of it and remember to hit the refresh link below and enjoy the show!
The first-ever episode of NXT 2.0 begins with a video package hyping the NXT Championship Fatal 4-Way, with promos from Ciampa, Dunne, Knight, and O’Reilly stating why they will become the new NXT Champion. During LA Knight’s promo he gets interrupted by a new face called Bron Breakker, who says he wants to make an impact. Knight tells him to come to the ring and he’ll beat the brakes off him.
We go live to the Capitol Wrestling Centre with a packed audience and a new, more spacious look.
The match gets underway and Knight goes to work on Breakker, beating him into the corner, but Bron fires back with a clothesline. Breakker takes a headlock, gets shot off, and hits a shoulder tackle. Breakker grabs a waistlock and slams Knight to the mat a few times. Knight breaks free and hits a clothesline of his own, then lands a big right hand and some stomps.
Breakker whipsKnight to the corner but misses a splash in the corner and Knight lands a neckbreaker. Knight takes too much time to taunt the fans and Breakker rallies with a shoulder tackle. Knight lands a flurry of right hands, then a knee to the face. Bron lifts Knight for a military press and turns it into a powerslam for a shock win.
We see replays of the opening match, then Bron Breakker is backstage getting congratulated by a lot of unknown faces.
The tag match gets underway with Jensen and Aichner, and Brooks forces Fabian to the corner but gets levelled with a clothesline. Aichner forearms the back of Jensen, then ooks for a backdrop but Jensen lands on his feet and hits a powerslam. The fans are booing as Briggs tags inand the duo hit a double clothesline.
Barthel tags in and takes Briggs down and grabs a wristlock. Briggs counters Barthel and headbutts him, then hits a nasty sidewalk slam and an elbow drop for a two-count. Barthel kicks Briggs and hits a huge chop to the chest. Snapmare and a running kick from Barthel, then Imperium hang Briggs on the ropes and hit a double dropkick.
Aichner and Jensen tag in and the young newcomer hits a body slam. Barthel rushes in but so does Briggs and they clothesline Barthel out. On the floor Barthel pulls Briggs out and sends him into the steel steps. Jensen drops Aichner and goes to the top rope but Barthel causes a distraction, allowing Aichner to leap up and hit a double underhook superplex for the win!
Hit Row are backstage and the guys talk about how awesome B-Fab is. The B tands for beautiful and she’s more real than all theother women in NXT. Swerve says B-Fab is going to light NXT 2.0 up. B-Fab says everyone knows she can spit but the time for talk is over.
The bell rings and Cortez does a forward roll but B-Fab kicks her leg out from under her. B-Fab backs her into the corner and lands some swinging kicks to the gut. B-Fab takes a side headlock, then throws Cortez across the ring. Cortez punches her away and climbs to the middle rope but she jumps into a pump kick from B-Fab. Cortez is hit with a neckbreaker and that’s that.
After the match B-Fab gets on the microphone. She says people thought she couldn’t do this but they can all do this. Cortez stuck her nose in the Kool-Aid but she didn’t know the flavour. Out comes Legado Del Fantasma and Electra Lopez tells her to shut up. Lopez says she B-Fab obviously hasn’t learned her lesson, so they can run it back. And this time she won’t need a pipe to shut her little yap. B-Fab says she’d love to do it again and she can do it right now. Lopez is game but Santos Escobar stops her.
Cameron Grimes, Odyssey Jones and Johnny Gargano are backstage, with the latter two dressed like Dexter Lumis. Austin Theory shows up wearing the gear as well and says he couldn’t miss Indi’s wedding. He brought a priest along with him, and it’s the United States Champion, Damian Priest! Gargano informs Theory that Priest is just his name, not a profession and Priest confirms it. Jones hands Priest sone champagne and Gargano hugs Theory.
Carmelo Hayes comes to the ring for an interview and he says he’s been riding a wave of momentum and he’s got the juice, but now he’s got a target on his back. It’s NXT 2.0 now and nobody’s going to catch him off-guard and he’s realised it’s a numbers game. So he called his friend Trick, and he’s going to be at his side 24/7. Trick says he’s here for two reasons; he was born with the gift of the gab and the gift of the jab, and that’s why his punchlines hit so hard. He says he’s proud of Carmelo, he’s the golden child of NXT, but he’s got a bone to pick with him now. Trick says Hayes has scored every shoot he ever took, so why’s he all humble now?
Trick offers a hand and Hayes shakes it saying he’s right. It’s hard to be so good and so humble. The contract he earned in the Breakout Tournament means he’s a already a Champion, he is the golden child. So if he decides to shoot, it’s a goal, and if he decides to pass it will go to Trick. They make to leave and Duke Hudson walks past, stopping to tell Hayes he got lucky in the tournament. Hudson shoves past them and Trick goes after him to hit a discus kick in the ring. Hayes and Trick stomp Hudson in the ring, then Hayes hits a springboard clothesline and they pose.
Gigi Dolan and Jacy Jayne are backstage with Mandy Rose and they’re telling Mandy she looks amazing. That she’s realised her true self. We can’t see Rose because she’s got a hood on. They’ll be in tag action after the break.
Kayden and Dolan start the match and Kacy dropkicks Kayne off the apron. Carter backs Gigi into the corner and tags Kacy who hits a flip kick and applies a black widow submission. We see a split-screen where Ridge Holland and Pete Dunne busted into Kyle O’Reilly’s locker room and beat him down. Jayne tags in but Kacy and Kayden team to drop her.

Mandy Rose reveals she’s dyed her hair brown and out comes Sarray to even the odds. Rose, Dolan and Jayne get beaten from the ring but all six argue as we head to the break.
We return to find this match underway. Sarray tags in and knocks Jayne and Rose off the apron, then hits a flying dropkick to Dolan. Sarray hits a northern lights suplex for a two-count, then Kacy and Kayden hit a quick series of double team moves. Kacy gets backed into the corner and Rose tags in and chokes her on the ropes.

Ridge with a European uppercut, then a short-arm lariat. Holland shouts at Maverick and drops him with a headbutt, then lifts him for Northern Grit and the win.

Diamond Mine comes to the ring, having added a new female member, and the Creed Brothers will be in action after the break.
We see a vignette from a guy called Tony D’Angelo walking down the street. He’s talking in a thick Italian accent with cheesy music. He says he was a great amateur wrestler but his family smartened him up; there’s no money in amateur wrestling. So he’s come to NXT where the money is.
The match begins with Brutus and Trevor. Brutus forces the guy to the ropes but gets slapped in the chest, so he runs Trevor over the ropes. Brutus goes to the outside and drops Dan on the apron before putting Trevor back inside. Julius comes in and lifts Trevor then he and Brutus run the two into each other. Brutus lifts Trevor up in a gutwrench and slams him onto the ropes.

We’re back live and the ring has been transofmred into a small wedding. Lumis is already at the altar with all the guests and William Regal is stood outside the ring. Johnny Gargano walks Indo to the ring and the fans cheer. The guests sit and the minister introduces everyone. Gargano doesn’t want to give her away but Candace makes him sit down. Austin Theory is asked if he has the rings and he says they’re already in one. Ikemen Jiro then opens his jacket to reveal he has the rings.
The minister asks if anyone believes they shouldn’t be married and almost everyone raises their hands, so Lumis opens his jacket and shows them a hatchet and they back down. Indi shares her vows and says Lumis is her cuddly teddy bear. When people call him a freak she says “damn right he is!” He’s her freak. She starts recounting a dirty story but Lumis stops her and Gargano freaks out. Indi says he’ll never lose a staring contest, he’ll always keep her safe, he gets her, and she loves him.
It’s time for Dexter’s vows and he offers a thumbs up. The minister asks why he has nothing to say and Lumis chokes him out with The Silence. The fans chant “Priest!” William Regal is asked to step in but Beth Phoenix steps up instead. Phoenix says she was prepared for this so she got ordained. She says it’s time to cut to the chase and Andre Chase steps up and starts talking but Odyssey Jones sits him back down.
Indi is asked if she takes Dexter as her husband and she says she does. Lumis is then asked if he takes Indi as his wife and he just stares so Beth says she’ll take that as a yes.
