WWE NXT Quick Recap for 5/25/2021

Matches Tonight: 5
  • Our first match of the evening was a solid tag team match that saw Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart defeat Raquel Gonzalez & Dakota Kai. Afterwards, Raquel destroyed them both to avenge the loss.
  • Pete Dunne defeated Bobby Fish in our second match of the night. Fish looked great in his return to the ring after a long absence and Dunne barely stole the win. Afterwards, Oney Lorcan beat the crap out of Fish.
  • Mercedes Martinez defeated Zayda Raimier in a short but entertaining match. Afterwards, Tian Sha taunted Martinez and "marked" her as, presumably, Tian Sha's target.
  • Franky Monet (Taya Valkyrie) made her debut, defeating Cora Jade (AEW/Impact's Elayna Black) in a short, nearly-squash match.
  • In Bálor/Kross II, our main event for the NXT Championship, Karrion Kross defeated Finn Bálor by TKO (he put Bálor to sleep). Solid half-hour match that ran the show over nearly ten minutes.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Hit Row cut a video promo, hinting that they're coming after all the champs in NXT.
  • Promos throughout the night built up the feud for an upcoming Thatcher/Ciampa vs Grizzled Young Veterans match soon.
  • Santos Escobar informed North American Champion Bronson Reed that he's coming for the NA title because Mexico is in North America and "Canada doesn't count." His words and logic. MSK prevented the trio of Legado del Fantasma from triple-teaming Bronson Reed, hinting at a possible six-man match next week.
  • Matches announced for next week include a triple-threat match to determine the new number one contender for the NXT Championship that will pit Kyle O'Reilly, Pete Dunne and Johnny Gargano against one another. Also, MSK will defend their tag team championships against Legado del Fantasma.
