WWE NXT Quick Recap for 1/20/2020

Matches Tonight: 6
  • In our opening match, Kushida & Leon Ruff defeated the Way in a Dusty Classic match. Decent match that really highlighted Kushida's style.
  • Our second match was a short squash match (four moves executed total, not counting the pin) in which Karrion Kross continued his undefeated streak by defeating Ashante Thee Adonis in roughly a minute. Afterwards, Kross put the Kross Jacket on Adonis' partner, Desmond Troy. We were informed later that Adonis will be unable to compete
  • In a face-paced and incredibly exciting match, the Lucha House Party defeated Imperium.
  • In the first ever Women's Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic match, Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter upset the team of Toni Storm & Mercedes Martinez to advance to the next round.
  • In what was surprisingly a good match, Bronson Reed defeated Tyler Rust.
  • Our main event, which ran over about 7 minutes past 10:00pm, saw Timothy Thatcher defeat Tommaso Ciampa in the second-ever Fight Pit. The match is worth seeing for the structure alone, but finished stronger than it began. Thatcher is now 2-0 in the Fight Pit.
Updated Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic

As there's been only one women's match, there will not be an update on that bracket until next week. Regarding the men's:

  • The Lucha House Party will square off with Legado Del Fantasma in the second round.
  • MSK will take on Drake Maverick & Killian Dain also in the second round.
  • Kushida & Leon Ruff will face the Grizzled Young Veteransin the second round as well.
  • The Undisputed Era will take on the winner of Tony Nese & Ariya Daivari versus Ashante Adonis Desmond Troy & Unnamed Partner*, who have yet to compete in the final of the first round matches.
  • * Ashante Adonis was ruled out by NXT management after the attack from Karrion Kross. No replacement has been named as of this writing.

Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments:
  • Finn Balor was tasked with finding a partner so that he can face Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch next week as part of an effort to take out Pete Dunne's "arms." Later in the program, he asked Kyle O'Reilly to team up with him and KOR agreed. The two teams face off next week.
  • Santos Escobar cut a pretty nifty promo.
