WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap for October 12, 2021

Matches Tonight: Nine
  • Singles Match: NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa vs Joe Gacy, with a special stipulation that if Gacy wins, Gacy will be added to the title match at Halloween Havoc. Great match that saw Ciampa pickup the win. After the match, Harland (fka Parker Boudreaux) attacked Ciampa. Harland started to attack Gacy, but Gacy seemed to calm the beast by touching his cheek. 8:04-8:15pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Xion Quin vs Malik Blade. Great, albeit short, match that saw Quin pickup the win. 8:26-8:29pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Ivy Nile w/ the Diamond Mine vs Valentina Feroz. This was Ivy Nile's debut match in NXT. Nile dominated and tapped her competition with a very cool take on the Torture Rack! 8:38-8:41pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Julius Creed w/ the Diamond Mine vs Ikemen Jiro. Great match that showcased Creed's talent in his NXT singles match debut. After the match, the Diamond Mine beat down Ikemen Jiro. Kushida attempted to make the save but the numbers game won out. 8:44-8:51pm EST.
  • Tag Match: Kyle O'Reilly & Von Wagner vs Pete Dunne & Ridge Holland. Great match, great spots, and Wagner/O'Reilly proved victorious. Definitely worth watching for Wagner's move set and the Wagner/Holland clashes. 9:01-9:24pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Duke Hudson vs Grayson Walker. Short but solid match that saw Hudson steal the win by gripping the tights in a roll-up. 9:22-9:24pm EST.
  • Tag Match: Persia Pirotta & Indi Hartwell vs Sarray & Amari Miller. Hartwell & Pirotta won. After the match, they called out the NXT tag champs Stark & Shirai. Toxic Attraction then entered and all six women brawled, leaving the reigning champs standing in the ring. 9:32-9:35pm EST.
  • North American Championship Main Event Match: Isaiah "Swerve" Scott(c) vs Santos Escobar w/ Legado Del Fantasma. Swerve makes his way out alone, his Hit Row companions currently being held by the LDF cartel. Fantastic match--go watch it! Swerve retained and is taking the North American title to SmackDown, apparently!. 9:45-9:57pm EST.
  • North American Championship Match II: Isaiah "Swerve" Scott(c) vs Carmelo Hayes w/ Trick Williams. Carmelo cashed in his title-shot contract from winning the NXT Breakout Tournament. Swerve attempts to put up a fight but the far-fresher man easily dispatches, and NXT throws us a swerve as Carmelo Hayes becomes our new North American Champion! 9:58-9:59pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Toxicity: Mandy Rose challenged NXT Champion Raquel Gonzalez for the title at Halloween Havoc, and her comrades Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne challenged Io Shirai & Zoey Stark for their NXT Tag Team Championship belts at Halloween Havoc as well. 8:17-8:21 EST.
  • Next Week 2.0: Bron Breaker & Tommaso Ciampa vs the Grizzled Young Veterans. Duke Hudson takes on Odyssey Jones.
  • Halloween Havoc Matches: Ciampa vs Breaker for the NXT Championship; Raquel Gonzalez & Mandy Rose in a Spin the Wheel match for the NXT Women's Championship. Io Shirai & Zoey Stark defend their Women's Tag titles against Toxic Attraction and Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta in a triple-threat match.
