WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap for November 16, 2021

Matches Tonight: Six
  • Singles Match: Dexter Lumis vs Tony D'Angelo. D'Angelo won by poking Lumis in the eye when the ref was out of position. 8:03-8:07pm EST.
  • Six-Man Tag Match: Odyssey Jones & Jacket Time vs the Diamond Mine. Great match that saw Jones & Jacket Time pick up the win. 8:27-8:36pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Andre Chase vs Xyon Quin. Quin dominated and looked great as usual. Worth keeping an eye on. 8:44-8:47pm EST.
  • Tag Match: Briggs & Jensen vs Kyle O' Reilly & Von Wagner. Wagner picked up the win for his team. Meh, that's all I've got for ya. 9:13-9:18pm EST.
  • Two-on-One Handicapped Match: Persia Pirotta vs Gabby Stephens & Jenna Levy. Persia Pirotta was scheduled for a tag match with Indi Hartwell, but Hartwell remained with Lumis in medical. Persia squashed both women in moments. Hey, they were on TV at least! 9:26-9:27pm EST.
  • Singles Main Event Match: Raquel Gonzalez vs Dakota Kai. This match started slow but ended fantastic, with a post-match multiple-woman brawl that set the stage for our first WarGames match. Gonzalez won via DQ after Toxic Attraction attacked her. 9:46-9:57pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Beatdown I: Following the short opening match, Trick Williams & Carmelo Hayes beat down Dexter Lumis and used a steel chair to work over his right hand. 8:07-8:09pm EST.
  • Stolen Valor: The Grizzled Young Veterans briefly stole the Women's tag titles in order to video call a relative and mislead them into thinking GYV were the NXT tag champions (they're not, it's Imperium). Afterwards, the GYV quickly clamored to return the titles.
  • Beatdown II: A returning Santos Escobar led a beatdown of Xyon Quin by the Legado faction on behalf of love-scorned Elektra Lopez. 8:47-8:50pm EST.
  • In-Ring Poker Showdown: Cameron Grimes versus Duke Hudson. We were given Texas Hold 'Em rules and a casino-style table was set up in the ring. Alicia the ring announcer moderated as both men played poker and verbally took jabs at each other. Whispered commentary was used for the segment as Barrett and co. tried to keep up the poker feel. Grimes won, bluffing Hudson into thinking he had a hearts-flush (Grimes had nothing, Hudson would have won with a trio of Fives had he not folded). Hudson flipped out and beat Grimes afterwards. 8:57-9:05pm EST.
  • Lashing Out w/ Lash Legend featuring Grayson Waller: Lash Legend addressed Kay Lee Ray, telling "KLR" that she's got to realize she's a one-woman army taking on the trio that is Toxic Attraction. Grayson Waller shows up and pulls up a chair. He talks to Lash about his issues with LA Knight, taking a few jabs about Knight as a veteran had to miss a lot of life. But Waller, as a "reality" star, didn't have to put the years on the road. He states this business isn't about DIY journeymen achieving their boyhood dream. Waller turns heel in this interview, claiming the game has changed and it's his now. He walks off to a shocked "audience." 9:22-9:25pm EST.
  • Steiner Math 2.0: During the Ciampa/Breakker segment just prior to the main event, Ciampa referenced Steiner math in giving Bron a 33 1/3rd chance of beating him. Bron got the reference, and with a laugh. 9:35-9:40pm EST roughly.
  • Next Week: North American Championship Triple Threat Match: Carmelo Hayes(c) vs Johnny Gargano vs Pete Dunne.
  • WarGames Build: It appears Toxic Attraction & Dakota Kai will battle Raquel Gonzalez, Io Shirai, and Cora Jade to a WarGames match. At this time, it is presumed that Zoey Stark would be the fourth member if she's medically cleared to go. We'll let you know when we know!
