This week’s NXT 2.0 opens with Hit Row making their way to the ring and B-Fab is about to be in action. Adonis says it’s all about the ladies tonight and it’s an honour to be in the presence of the ladies. Hit Row talk about the matches on the show tonight and joke about the other wrestlers.

We see a video of Indi Hartwell and Deter Lumis on their honeymoon. They’re on the beach playing games and making sandcastles. Johnny Gargano and Candace LeRae are in a nearby hotel, watching with binoculars. Gargano says he’s happy they’re having good, clean fun but Candace reminds him what they did on their honeymoon. Indi asks “sexy Dexy” to meet her in the water and things get heated. Suddenly a shark fin appears in the water and Lumis carries her out of the water. Of course, the shark fin is Gargano wearing a cap.
Joe Gacy is sat in the ring and he reiterates that the ring is still a safe space. He made a huge impact last week and he has not been cancelled. He made a bigger impact than the likes of Tommaso Ciampa or Bron Breakker. And he did so only with his words. He speaks for a generation that nobody understands except the enlightened ones. Everyone else is living in an obsolete world. And last week he saw a lot of triggered faces but he doesn’t understand because he is inclusive. No one person can change the world but he’s here to usher in the new normal.
The match gets underway and Lorcan runs into a shoulder and falls. He shoves Xyon’s face, then gets pushed over the ropes to the floor.

Wes Lee says they’re still fighting champion’s and it doesn’t matter who steps up, they’re going to get knocked back. The Grizzled Young Veterans come out and Drake laughs at the idea of them being fighting champion’s.
Carmelo Hayes and Trick come out and Hayes says you can’t talk about championships without discussing him because he’s got the golden ticket. Gibson asks Hayes and Trick what they said and says the line in the tag division starts behind them. MSK tell them both to shut up. Wes says Hayes and Trick can cash-in that contract if they want and get proven wrong. And they’ve already proven to Grizzled Young Veterans that they’re the better team but they can go again if they want.
One of NXT’s newest tag teams, Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen, come out and say they’d like to be part of this conversation too. Trick tells them to get their hick asses outta there, so Briggs hits Trick. All the teams start brawling until MSK leap over the ropes onto Grizzled Young Veterans, Hayes and Trick. All four teams stare each other down to close the segment.
Raquel Gonzalez is interviewed backstage. She says Franky Monet is a good opponent but she’s about to be another name checked off her lsit.

Indi jumps on the bed and tells Lumis to give it to her. Gargano thinks they are being intimate but they’re just having a pillow fight. Indi is ready for a nap now.

Andre Chase comes rushing past complaining about his loss, and that gives Knight a chance to jump Jones and beat him down!

We get the first-ever edition of new NXT talk show – the first NXT talk show? – Lashing Out with Lash Legend. She welcomes us to her show and talks about the upcoming WWE Draft. She knows a little something about drafts because she got the rebound record in a single game and that earned her a WNBA draft spot. She asks about Jade and Baxter kissing in the locker room and says if Cora wants a real man she should get someone who looks like Ikemen Jiro.
