It’s Tuesday night and that means a brand new episode of WWE NXT 2.0 for November 30th, and Ringside News has you covered with live play-by-play results coverage. Start time for NXT is at 8:00 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.
Tonight’s NXT is the go-home show for the WarGames PPV. As such, we’re due for two advantage ladder matches, one for the men and one for the women. These matches determine which team gets the advantage in the respective WarGames matches, but as of now we only know who will be competing in the women’s match: Kay Lee Ray Vs. Dakota Kai. The men’s match, on the other hand, could throw up any number of interesting match-ups.
Elsewhere tonight, Joe Gacy is inviting us all to his “inclusive invitational”. We don’t know what that will entail but Gacy faces Roderick Strong for the Cruiserweight Championship on Sunday, so sparks are sure to fly here. And then Kyle O’Reilly & Von Wagner take on Legado del Fantasma, with the winning team receiving an NXT Tag Team Title shot. There’s certain to be plenty more on tonight’s episode but this is what we know ahead of time.
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!
NXT opens with Toxic Attraction walking backstage, then it cuts to their WarGames opponents doing the same. Both teams meet on the stage and begin brawling as the fans chant “WarGames!” The officials rush out and manage to get everyone to the back, except for the two women in the upcoming match. Dakota sends Kay Lee Ray into a ladder on the ramp, then puts her into the ring.

We see a replay of last week’s show where Cameron Grimes challenged Duke Hudson to a hair-vs-hair match. Grimes then had a run-in with Andre Chase backstage, and the two will have a match tonight.
The Grizzled Young Veterans are backstage and they’re trying to break into the lockers of Briggs and Jensen. Ikemen Jiro and Kusida appear and cause a rucukus through confusion until Briggs and Jensen appear and GYV run off.

A handful of terrible haircuts appear on a picture of Grimes. Hudson says Grimes is complaining but the internet says he made Cameron more handsome. So he’ll fix that by taking the hair and the beard on Sunday. Grimes tells him to hold on, then puts Andre Chase back in the ring and grabs a razor. Grimes looks to shave Chase but one of his students saves him. Grimes gets a microphone and says he can’t wait to shave Duke bald.
Carmelo Hayes, Trick Williams, Bron Breakker, Grayson Waller and Tony D’Angelo are in the ring and an announcer reveals that Johnny Gargano will be competing in the advantage ladder match tonight.
Carmelo Hayes says we’re looking at the future of NXT, the dream team. And as for Gargano, he’s done it all in NXT, had food on his plate for years, but he’s not asking him to share he’s handing him his plate. Waller calls their opponents team hot-dogs and handshakes. He says they wanted them to come in, shake hands and carry bags but instead they slapped them in the face and posed it on social media, because that’s what a sports entertainer does. He says he’s a younger, better looking LA Knight.
Bron Breakker steps forward and he mocks Ciampa and says he’s overlooking them. This week they’re coming to beat the black and gold team and then he’s coming for the NXT Championship. Tony D’Angelo says he knows a lot about gold and he respecs the black and gold team, they paved the road. But that road has potholes and they’re going to fill them with their heads. The announcer returns and reveals that Gargano’s opponent for tonight is Bron Breakker.
Gargano comes out and calls them rainbow-soaked rookies. He says they want to bury him and his peers in order to get ahead. Tonight he’s going one-on-one with the big bad booty nephew, which the fans start chanting. Gargano says he’s coming out here by himself tonight, so how about Breakker do the same. The fans want to see them go man-to-man. Breakker agrees and says he’ll kick Johnny’s ass in the ladder match.
MSK are in the car, searching for their shaman and they’re both so high they can barely drive. Their GPS is talking smack to them and Wes Lee wants to fight it but they finally arrive at the shaman’s house. The door opens and its all purple and foggy and we don’t see who he is.

Joe Gacy and Harland are in the ring for an inclusive invitiational, along with three random Superstars. Gacy says this is how he sees the future of the cruiserweight division. They believe Roderick Strong’s reign has created a toxic enviornment, but in his world the division will no longer be defined by height, weight or gender. He invited these Superstars here tonight to give everyone a glimpse into the future of NXT.
Gacy looks for a lock-up with his first of three opponents but the guy avoids it. The guy kicks him in the gut but Gacy connects with a pump kick and gets angry. Gacy splashes the guy in the corner, then hits a Book-End. Gacy hits a gutwrench bomb for the pinfall. Afterwards Gacy hugs the yougn man and invites the woman into the ring. Before they can lock-uo, the lights do down and out comes Diamond Mine.
Malcolm Bivens says Gacy didn’t need to create this spectacle and it’s lacking legitamacy. Bivens says Gacy should have told people they’re witnessing history because this was the first and last inclusive invitiational, because on Sunday Diamond Mine will shut him up for good. Gacy asks to quell hostilities and asks to speak to Strong without the rest of Diamond Mine. Bivens taunts Gacy and he asks Roderick if he always lets other people speak for him. Strong hits Gacy but gets caught with the handspring clothesline. Harland drags Gacy out of the ring as Diamond Mine rush in.

Xyon Quinn is walking outside and he spots Elektra. She says she wishes he’d stop messing with Legado, but she admires that he marches to the beat of his own drum. That said, good luck next week because he’s facing Santos Escobar.
