WWE NXT Quick Recap for 4/13/2021

Matches Tonight: 5
  • Our first match saw MSK defeat Killian Dain & Drake Maverick in their first title defense. MSK was booed, surprisingly.
  • In our second match, Mercedes Martinez easily defeated Jessie Kamea in a short match. Martinez then announced that she's going after González next.
  • Our third match saw Kushida defeat Santos Escobar to become the new NXT Cruiserweight champion, ending Escobar's 320+ day streak as champ.
  • Our fourth match saw Isaiah "Swerve" Scott pick up the win over Leon Ruff in a very impressive match with both men performing at a high athletic level.
  • Our main event, eight-person match saw Ember Moon, Shotzi Blackheart, Dexter Lumis & Bronson Reed defeat The Way. At the end of the match, Dexter Lumis carried off Indi Hartwell (who has a huge crush on him).
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • After the tag team championship match, Imperium attacked Killian Dain. Dain was tricked by former inSAnitY partner Wolfe.
  • In a very sweet moment, new NXT Champion Raquel Gonzalez was met in the ring by new Raw Women's Champion Rhea Ripley and new SmackDown Women's Champion Bianca Belair. All three women embraced, all smiles and tears despite past animosity as the three friends celebrate together in the ring with a picture of the trio together from a few years ago on the screen behind them.
  • NXT Champion Karrion Kross put everyone on notice. Thrill recap, I know, but that was the gist of things.
