Raw's Apollo Crews; Giovanni Vinci

WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap for July 12, 2022

Matches Tonight: 7 (approx. 48 minutes)
  • Singles Match: Apollo Crews vs Giovanni Vinci (fka Imperium's Fabian Aichner). Decent match with some big spots, mostly counters, from Giovanni Vinci. Crews looks like he's adding more muscle mass. Vinci picked up the win when Xyon Quinn attacked Crews behind the ref's back. 8:06-8:19pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Tatum Paxley vs Kayden Carter w/ Katana Chance. Thanks to some smart coaching from Ivy Niles, Paxley picked up the win. 8:40-8:43pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Sanga vs Duke Hudson. Short but entertaining match that saw Sanga win. 8:52-8:54pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Solo Sikoa vs Von Wagner. Solid match that ended in a double count-out as the two beasts among men brawled outside the ring a lil' too long. After the match the two brawled to the back and were shown later in the night brawling all around the Capitol Wrestling Center (approx 9:25pm) and, eventually, to the parking lot (approx 9:35pm), easily fending off refs and officials who attempted to separate them. These two brawled in the ring and out for over half an hour. 9:03-9:13pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Indi Hartwell vs Lash Legend. Rough, ugly match that saw Hartwell pick up the win after Alba Fyre distracted Legend. Fyre attempted to attack Legend after the match with her bat, but Lash took of running. 9:24-9:28pm EST.
  • Tag Team Match: the D'Angelo Family (Tony D'Angelo & Channing Lorenzo) vs Edris Enofé & Malik Blade. Outcome. 9:37-9:42pm EST.
  • NXT Women's Championship Main Event Match: Mandy Rose(c) vs Roxanne Perez. One week after Cora Jade & Roxanne Perez stunned Toxic Attraction by winning the titles at Great American Bash, Perez is hoping to dethrone the final member of TA with gold. Despite a beatdown earlier in the night and much speculation Perez showed for the match and almost pulled off the upset. Cora Jade turned heel, attacking Perez to give Rose the victory. Solid match from the "injured" rookie. 9:54-10:04pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Grimes, Devlin: Cameron Grimes cut a depressed promo until "Jordan Devlin" JD McDonagh attacked him, setting up a match for next week. 8:28-8:32pm EST.
  • Friday on SmackDown: Theory vs Madcap Moss; Natalya takes on Liv Morgan in a contender's match.
  • (Slight) Name Changes: Robert Stone is now, simply, Mr. Stone and Channing Lauren of the D'Angelo Family is now Channing Lorenzo. Jordan Devlin is now JD McDonagh.
  • Next Week on NXT: Pretty Deadly challenge NXT UK Tag Team Champions Briggs & Jensen for their titles. Roderick Strong vs Damon Kemp. Joe Gacy will "cleanse and purify" NXT, whatever that means. JD "Jordan Devlin" McDonagh vs Cameron Grimes. Axiom, a masked "super hero" lucha--formerly known as A-Kid!--makes his NXT debut next week.
