WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap for March 15, 2022

Matches Tonight: Six (approx. 40 minutes)
  • Number One Contenders Match: Santos Escobar vs Cameron Grimes. The winner becomes the new number one contender for the North American Championship. Entertaining match that saw Escobar rip victory from the jaws of defeat. Escobar will face Carmelo Hayes at Stand & Deliver in Texas. 8:19-8:30pm EST.
  • NXT 2.0 Debut Match: A-Kid(d) vs KUSHIDA w/ Ikemen Jiro. The winner of this match, A-Kid, will face Grayson Waller next week in a North American Championship qualifying match. 8:39-8:44pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Sarray vs Tiffany Stratton. Stratton lightly beat up Sarray before the match, during her entrance. Stratton then squashed Sarray in seconds in the ring. Time includes ambush + ring time. 8:51-8:53pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Persia Pirotta vs Indi Hartwell. Both women made their entrance together, with Hartwell posing beside Pirotta as if they're still a tag team. Duke Hudson showed up, distracting Indi...but Dexter Lumis made his return, distracting Pirotta and allowing Indi to pick up the quick win. After the match, both couples had a kissing contest in the ring (yes, really). Expect a mixed tag match at Stand & Deliver. 9:17-9:19pm EST.
  • Singles Debut Match: Dominik Mysterio(d) w/ Rey vs Raul Mendoza w/ LDF. Dom picked up the win in his NXT debut. 9:26-9:32pm EST.
  • NXT Championship Main Event Match: Dolph Ziggler(c) w/ Robert Roode vs LA Knight. Knight lost in a valiant effort due to Robert Roode's interference. 9:55-10:09pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Miz TV featuring the Dirty Dawgs: Great segment that saw LA Knight come out on the mic and goad Ziggler into a championship match in the main event tonight. 8:03-8:13pm EST.
  • 619 2.0: The Mysterios were the latest main roster Superstars to visit NXT.
  • Ciampa's Ready to Hang 'Em Up: In a lengthy segment that was wrought with emotion, Tommaso Ciampa engaged with the NXT Universe as he discussed winding down his career. He wanted a fairy-tale ending match at Stand & Deliver, on the Grandest Stage of Them All during WrestleMania weekend, but by failing to win the title last week he can't see a path there. Enter Tony D'Angelo, who challenged Ciampa to a match at Stand & Deliver. Tony then nut-punched Ciampa and yelled that he would end Ciampa's career, theoretically, and become the new "don" of NXT. 9:01-9:12pm EST.
  • Cora Jade vs Toxic Attraction: Throughout the night, Toxic Attraction had to search for their titles after Cora Jade stole them. Cora managed to lock Jacy Jayne in an equipment locker, Gigi Dolin in a dumpster, and attempted to desecrate and steal Mandy Rose's car. Rose showed up and beat Jade, then agreed to give her a title shot. She then spray painted on Jade's back, a la Hall in the nWo.
  • Scott Hall Tributes: Wes Lee invoked "hey, yo" in a promo and a beautiful video package aired, paying some tribute to Hall.
  • Next Week: Solo Sikoa vs Roderick Strong and Grayson Waller vs A-Kid, with the two winners advancing in qualifying for a North American Championship match at Stand & Deliver.
  • NXT Stand & Deliver '22: Dexter Lumis & Indi Hartwell vs Duke Hudson & Persia Pirotta mixed tag match (my conjecture). Imperium defend their tag titles in a triple-threat against the Creed Brothers & MSK. NXT Women's Champion Mandy Rose vs Cora Jade. NXT Champion Dolph Ziggler vs Bron Breakker.
