WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap (March 22, 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 the penultimate one, ahead of next weekend's Stand & Deliver event during WrestleMania weekend. Tonight's program also featured eight matches with a record-setting 63 minutes of actual wrestling in the 88 minutes of broadcast time (not counting commercials). That's a pretty high amount of matches and wrestling time-per-broadcast ratio. (Yes, Il like numbers, sue me.)
