WWE NXT 2.0 Outcomes: Tuesday, September 14, 2021
Bron Breakker def. LA Knight
NXT’s enviornment was massively improved from the darkish and desolate CWC.
Bron Breakker is the son of Rick Steiner, which I don’t consider was introduced up on commentary.
Bron Breakker seems like a younger Scott Steiner. It was nearly uncanny.
Breakker’s surprising win to open NXT 2..0 will lead lots of people to consider that LA Knight is successful the WWE NXT Championship. They’ll blame Kevin Dunn for it, however always remember that the outdated NXT featured Ilja Dragunov dropping his debut match earlier than successful the NXT UK Championship, and Carmelo Hayes dropping his first match because the NNXT Breakout Match.
IMPERIUM def. Brooks Jensen Josh Briggs
This was an enhancement match designed to function IMPERIUM, whom I’d argue needs to be used to function a extra charismatic tag crew.
Up to now, NXT has been largely par for the course. A few new faces, certain, however a lot of the identical product.
B-Fab def. Katrina Cortez
They stored this one quick, however B-Fab regarded simply advantageous in there and confirmed loads of star energy all through.
B-Fab and Elektra Lopez formally turned the primary ladies’s angle to be shot within the new NXT. Sadly, their confrontation was reduce quick as NXT threw to the again.
Carmelo Hayes Seems Stay with Trick Williams
I like that they’re doing one thing with Carmelo Hayes, however Trick Williams feels awkward as a supervisor and can be a greater match as a tag crew companion.
I used to be very shocked that Duke Hudson was overwhelmed down on this period of NXT. They couldn’t have saved this spot for Drake Maverick? That might have gotten far more warmth.
Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolan and Jacy Jane def. Sarray, Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter
Backstage, Kyle O’Reilly was massacred by Pete Dunne and Ridge Holland.
After getting kicked within the face a few weeks in the past, Mandy Rose’s masks gimmick led to her dying her hair brunette. Is brunette hair the remedy to a damaged nostril?
Kacy Catanzaro and Gigi Dolan ought to simply change their identify to the TikTok Tag Staff as a result of it’s far much less syllables.
Ridge Holland def. Drake Maverick
I used to be questioning why Drake Maverick couldn’t be the one taking a beatdown from Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams, and it was as a result of he was too busy getting beat up by Ridge Holland.
The massive takeaway right here is that Kyle O’Reilly was changed by the largely unknown “Vaughn Wagner,” who saved him after being overwhelmed down backstage. A part of me wished to see Wagner win simply to see how rapidly WWE Twitter would burn to the bottom.
The Creed Brothers def. Native Rivals
Wade Barrett hilariously referred to as the native opponents “meat puppets.”
The Creed Brothers slap one another within the face previous to tagging in. How will you not love these guys?
The Creed Brothers are in a short time changing into my new favourite tag groups. They’re so convincing in destroying all the things in sight.
Malcolm Bivens signed a shredded girl named Ivy Nile. Ivy had a diamond buzzed into her head which is extra dedication to this steady than NXT has proven in months.
With all these signings, The Diamond Mine went from being on the backburner of NXT to primarily turning right into a expertise company the scale of CAA.
Tommaso Ciampa def. LA Knight, Pete Dunne and Von Wagner—WWE NXT Championship
It’s not essentially the most promising begin in your vacant title, in a brand new period, that it may well’t predominant occasion over a comedy wedding ceremony.
LA Knight didn’t even get a correct entrance. After dropping to Bron Breakker within the opener, if Knight does win this title, WWE certain did an excellent job hiding it.
Von Wagner’s theme music was simply as generic as he’s.
Wagner, who at occasions was harking back to Jack Swagger, regarded fairly good within the ring, however he may use a supervisor to assist get him over. Possibly he can be part of the Diamond Mine together with all people else.
This crowd bought so quiet throughout a second the place it
Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis’ Marriage ceremony
I don’t know why, however I simply don’t belief Beth Phoenix on this storyline and have lengthy since felt that she was going to smash this wedding ceremony.
Austin Concept and Damian Priest appeared backstage as he returned to see Dexter Lumis get married. Not solely does this tie into Austin’s meathead character (he confused Damian Priest with an precise wedding ceremony Priest), however Priest and Lumis have wrestled one another up to now.
I like how they made the followers stand for the marriage in addition to the wrestlers in attendance.
As we speak I discovered Dexter Lumis’ center identify is Gaylord, similar to Greg Focker.
Ikeman Jiro fully stole this wedding ceremony with out saying a phrase in additional proof of that he needs to be on tv extra.
All people raised their palms through the “communicate now or ceaselessly maintain your piece” portion, prompting Dexter Lumis to flash his axe at them.
The gang actually helped elevate this phase.
“At any time when folks name Dexter a freak, I say ‘Hell yeah he’s a freak!’ Dexter, you by no means lose a staring contest…” Indi Hartwell was on fireplace. All Lumis needed to do so as to get a equally rousing response was give her a thumbs up.
Beth Ended up saving this wedding ceremony, which is the alternative of what I had predicted. This wedding ceremony was hilarious.
