WWE NXT 2.0 Quick Recap for October 5, 2021

Matches Tonight:
  • Singles Match: Ember Moon vs Toxic Attraction's Mandy Rose. Rose debuted new ring gear. Rose picked up the win in the short, but highly entertaining, match. 8:04-8:08pm EST.
  • Singles Match: LA Knight vs Odyssey Jones. LA Knight picked up the win after Andre Chase caused a distraction. 8:18-8:24pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Ikemen Jiro vs Joe Gacy. Short match that saw Gacy pick up the win after a hard-fought victory. Gacy hugged Jiro afterwards before leaving the ring. 8:39-8:42pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Cora Jade, in her NXT 2.0 debut, versus Franky Monet. Jade stole the win, leaving Monet in shock after the roll-up. Monet hits a beautiful spear. 8:47-8:52pm EST.

  • Singles Match: Tony D'Angelo vs Malik Blade. This marks Tony's debut in NXT 2.0. D'Angelo dominated; commentary continued using offensive Italian Stereotypes; Tony won with a unique Suplex-Spinning Fisherman combo, a finisher as-yet-unnamed. 9:16-9:21pm EST.
  • Singles Match: Mei Ying w/ Boa vs Indi Hartwell-Lumis. Hartwell stole the win. Mei Ying's wrestling gear look and actions made her resemble, to me, a mini-Undertaker especially after sitting up after immediately losing, Taker style. 9:29-9:32pm EST.
  • Fatal 4-Way Elimination Tag Team Championship Main Event Match the Grizzled Young Veterans vs Hayes & Williams vs NXT Tag Champions MSK & Briggs & Jensen. This match was originally an 8-man tag. Shortly before broadcast, it was changed to a Fatal 4-way. During a promo around 8:52, the teams decided to make it an elimination match. Hayes & Williams were the first team eliminated, at 9:57pm. The second team eliminated was Grizzled Young Veterans at 10:03pm. The third and final team eliminated was the team of Briggs & Jensen at 10:05pm. MSK retained their titles to end our broadcast. 9:54-10:05pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Golden Opportunity: Tommaso Ciampa addressed the NXT 2.0 Universe. He announced the return of Halloween Havoc to NXT 2.0! He then accepted a challenge from Bron Breaker, son of Rick Steiner, for the NXT title in three weeks at Halloween Havoc.
  • Toxic Environment: Toxic Attraction--Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin, & Jacy Jayne--threatened to jump Raquel after explaining they're championship material, and soon they'll hold all the gold. NXT Tag Team Champions Io Shirai & Zoey Stark hit the ring, evening the odds and forcing Toxic to back off.
  • Halloween Havoc Returns: Three weeks from tonight, Halloween Havoc will return. Already announced for the match is Tommaso Ciampa defending his NXT title against Bron Breaker (Rick Steiner's son) Expect more matches to be announced.
  • A Three-way: Gacy wormed his way into a match against Ciampa next week. If Gacy wins, the Woke Wrestler will be added to the title match at Halloween Havoc, turning it into a triple-threat, but only IF he beats Ciampa.
  • Next Week: Ciampa vs Gacy; if Gacy wins, he's added to the title shot at Halloween Havoc. Swerve defends his North American title against Santos Escobar.
