WWE NXT Quick Recap for 5/11/2021

Matches Tonight: 6*
  • In what started almost a squash but ended in impressive fashion, NXT Champion Karrion Kross defeated Austin Theory.
  • MSK defeated Breezango in an incredible (surprisingly!) tag match. If you only watch one match tonight, let it be this one.
  • Pete Dunne defeated Leon Ruff. Ruff showed off his speed and agility but was knocked out by Dunne (ref stoppage).
  • Raquel Gonzalez defeated Mercedes Martinez to retain her NXT Women's Championship. A very solid match from the two powerhouses.
  • Kyle O'Reilly defeated Oney Lorcan. After the match, Pete Dunne and Lorcan jumped Kyle until a returning Bobby Fish made the save.
  • Our main event two out of three falls Cruiserweight championship match ran over, but saw Kushida victorious in retaining his title against Santos Escobar. Incredible match. Very, very good match.

* eight matches, if you count the 2/3 falls as individual matches.

Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Finn Bálor challenged Kross for his rematch, and Kross accepted.
  • After the MSK/Breezango match, both teams shook hands in a sign of respect. MSK spoke into the camera, calling out Legado (in the future).
  • The North American Championship match next week will now be a steel cage match, as Bronson Reed hopes to finally get his hands on current champ Johnny Gargano.
  • Isaiah "Swerve" Scott formally introduced us to the Hit Row consisting of himself, Ashanti Adonis, Top Dollar, and B. Fab.
