It’s Tuesday night and that means a brand new episode of WWE NXT for April 12th, 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 2.0 should bring us more information on the shocking abduction of Bron Breakker’s father, Rick Steiner. Joe Gacy and Harland revealed that they’d kidnapped Steiner after Breakker defeated Gunther to retain the NXT Championship in the main event of last week’s NXT. Breakker will likely be furious and it’s certainly going to be interesting to see what happens next.

Of course, we have three championship matches tonight, with Cameron Grimes defending his North American Championship against Solo Sikoa, and Mandy Rose defending the Women’s NXT Championship against Dakoa Kai. An unfortunate story broke last week that saw one half of MSK, Nash Carter, get released from the company, and so tonight the vacant NXT Tag Team Titles will be on the line in a five-team Gauntlet Match: Grayson Waller & Sanga Vs. Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde Vs. The Creed Brothers Vs. Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen Vs. Pretty Deadly.

That’s the preview for tonight’s stacked episode of 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 Champion, Bron Breakker comes to the ring. Bron if Joe Gacy was looking to get his attention he succeeded. He says his father is home now, safe and sound, but Gacy has some nerve pulling that crap last week. His father gave twenty years to this business, a Hall of Famer and a legend. So how about Gacy come out to the ring and they can see how tough he really is?

Gacy appears on the screen and he’s outside with a fire burning in front of him. Gacy says he knows more about Breakker now, after spending some time with his father. He pulls out the Hall of Fame ring that Steiner got recently and says this represents his father’s life’s work. It’s the reason Bron is where he is, but he wants to know who the family is without the ring and he throws it into the fire.

Cora Jade comes to the ring. She says WrestleMania weekeNd was the most important of her entire life and it was bigger than she ever imagined. And the best part was that her parents got to sit in the second row and watch her perform. She says she competed against three of the very best female competitors in the world and she thinks she held her own. She really thought she would walk out as Champion but coming so close has made her need it.

Jade says she will be a WWE Champion because it’s all she’s dreamt of since she was a child. She wants to follow in the footsteps of her heroes: AJ Lee, Paige, Natalya, Beth Phoenix, etc. And the generation of Jade will… Natalya’s music hits and she comes to the ring! The fans are shocked and Jade looks like a kid, stunned and thrilled. The fans chant “holy $hit” and Natalya tears up.

Natalya says this building brings back so many memories for her. She says it’s very good to finally meet Cora Jade and she introduces herself. Jade says she knows who she is, she’s the B.O.A.T. She was her first-ever action figure. She sent Natalya a message on Twitter in 2011 when she was ten because Natalya pointed at her at a live show. Natalya says she remembers that because when Cora debuted for NXT she DM’d her and told her how happy she was and that she was so glad she pointed to the right girl that night.

Natalya says Cora has everything: she’s beautiful, talented and she has all the passion in the world. She says she has competed against the very best the industry has ever had and she can say with confidence that Cora is the future of it… but that future is BLEAK! Natalya slaps Jade, then scoops her up and applies the Sharpshooter! Jade taps instantly and a bunch of referees rush down and try to pry Natalya off. She eventaully relents and calls Jade a bitch.
