WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap for July 19, 2022

Matches Tonight: Five (approx. 48 minutes)
  • Singles Match: Cameron Grimes vs JD McDonagh. JD McDonagh, the former Jordan Devlin, made his repackaged NXT 2.0 debut. This match started meh but ended great in an impressive spot of ruthless aggression from Grimes. McDonagh held on to pick up the win, and Grimes once again acquires an "L." 8:05-8:19pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Roderick Strong vs Damon Kemp. Strong won after both men saw fellow Diamond Mine members being attacked by the D'Angelo Family backstage, using the distraction to hit a Revolution knee on Kemp to secure the win. 8:38-8:43pm EST.
  • NXT UK Tag Team Championship Match: Briggs & Jensen(c) vs Pretty Deadly. Despite Pretty Deadly's attempts to cheat, Briggs & Jensen retained. 8:54-9:06pm EST.
  • NXT Debut Match: Axiom vs That. Axiom was briefly known as A-Kid but has been repackaged in a Power Rangers/Lucha hybrid character it seems. Chen dominated for most of the match but Axiom's comeback sequence ended with the pin on Chen for the win. 9:27-9:30pm EST.
  • Number One Contender's 20-Woman Battle Royal: the winner and our new number one contender is a returning Zoey Stark who outlasted Yulisa Leon, Sloane Jacobs, Lash Legend, Tatum Paxley, Tiffany Stratton, Elektra Lopez, Arianna Grace, Valentina Feroz, Kiana James, Sarray, Wendy Choo, Amari Miller, Fallon Henley, Indi Hartwell, Cora Jade, Alba Fyre, Nikkita Lyons, Katana Chance, Kayden Carter, and Ivy Nile. 9:52-10:05pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Cora Jade Explains Last Week: As expected, Jade did it because she was jealous of the new girl, Roxanne Perez.
  • Joe Gacy's Dyads Revealed: Jagger Reed and Rip Fowler were disrobed and revealed to be Joe Gacy's Dyads. Who are these strange men, you ask? Jagger Reid is James Drake with a clean-shaven face; Rip Fowler is Zack Gibson, head/beard shaved. 9:08-9:10
  • Bron Breakker Spoke: He and JD McDonagh exchanged words. JD threatened not to beat Breakker, but to dismantle him by focusing on every muscle in the shoulder joint. 9:15-9:20pm EST.
  • Renamed Tag Team: This is starting to feel like a weekly process. The Grizzled Young Veterans are now known as Joe Gacy's Dyads. The artist formerly known as James Drake is now Jagger Reid; Zack Gibson is now Rip Fowler.
  • Big Return: Zoey Stark returned, having not been seen since November.
