WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap (April 5, 2022)

For those of you who want just the quick results and don't want the details of matches, this is a quick recap of tonight's show. There are spoilers for tonight's show below. The full results can be found right here and you can find our preview over here! Tonight's episode was subpar and rather disappointing for NXT, to be frank. The show felt disjointed and retconned some of the events of Stand & Deliver faster than a Marvel Comics editor.

WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap for April 5, 2022

Matches Tonight: Five (approx. 45 minutes)
  • Tag Team Match: Imperium vs the Creed Brothers. The Creed Brothers picked up the win after some confusion between Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel caused Aichner to walk out on his partner. 8:13-8:19pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Dexter Lumis w/ Indi Hartwell vs Duke Hudson w/ Persia Pirotta. A double count-out ended what could've been a good match with tug-of-war InDex/Pudson stupidity that elicited a loud "that was stupid" chant from the crowd. 8:48-8:52pm EST.
  • Tag Team Championship Rematch: Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez vs Toxic Attraction. Toxic Attraction defeated the champs to become only the second two-time women's tag team champions. The first team--Kai & Gonzalez--have held the title twice and are 0-2 in title defenses. Sad. 9:01-9:16pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Nikkita Lyons vs Lash Legend. Lyons picked up the win. 9:33-9:38pm EST.
  • NXT Championship Match: Bron Breakker(c) vs WALTER. Actually decent match that saw Bron survive WALTER's best to retain. 9:47-10:01pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • The Champ Speaks: NEW NXT Champion Bron Breakker addressed the events of the weekend. He was surprisingly heckled by a noticeably sizable portion of the audience, who chanted "we want Ziggler." Imperium came out and WALTER was challenged by Bron for a match later tonight. 8:04-8:09pm EST.
  • The Other Champ Speaks: NEW North American Champion Cameron Grimes BLAH. Despite the trolling "new fans" crap, Grimes basically cut a promo stating how grateful he was to win and face challengers, such as his first--Solo Sikoa, a man who has fought hard to get where he's at. 8:33-8:40pm EST.
  • The Don Speaks: Incredibly boring segment--which the fans let us all know, loudly, through chants--that saw Tony D christened the new Don of NXT. 9:21-9:25pm EST.
  • Odd Crowd: The usually-hot NXT crowd was hot, but a loud portion of the crowd seemed to constantly boo the faces, including denigrating chants at times you wouldn't expect it. Very odd. And that was before it established itself as a boring episode.
  • Masked Assailants, Unmasked: The team attacking the Creed Brothers lately has been NXT UK's Pretty Deadly.
  • I'd Like to Report a Dog-Napping: Our program ended with Bron Breakker seeing his father on the tron/screen, only for the camera to pull back and reveal Joe Gacy & Harland have abducted the "Dog-Faced Gremlin" Rick Steiner. To be continued next week...
  • Next Week on NXT: Mandy Rose vs Dakota Kai for the NXT Women's Championship, MSK vs Grayson Waller & Sanga for the NXT Tag Team Championship.
