WWE NXT Quick Recap for 6/1/2021

Matches Tonight: 5
  • Our first match of the night saw a no-contest ending in the triple-threat number one contender match between Johnny Gargano, Kyle O'Reilly and Pete Dunne. Adam Cole interfered at the end of a great, 20+ minute match and was escorted out by a furious GM Regal and security.
  • LA Knight, one of the best heel mic players in the game, was defeated by Jake Atlas in singles competition. Ted DiBiase watched on from ringside for most of the match, initially impressed until Knight lost to Atlas--due to Knight's efforts to impress DiBiase and show off to Cameron Grimes, who came out at the end to talk to Ted DiBiase.
  • Kushida defeated Carmelo Hayes (Christian Casanova) to retain his Cruiserweight Championship.
  • The Way defeated Zoey Stark & Zayda Ramier in women's tag team action.
  • Our main event match saw MSK defend their Tag Team Championship titles successfully against Legado del Fantasma in what was an incredible match. The opening and closing matches are worth the watch by far.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
  • Ember Moon tried to call out Raquel Gonzalez, and Dakota Kai beat her ass from behind for the effort.
  • Adam Cole cut a promo on Karrion Kross, calling out the champ and his wife and leading to an interesting confrontation.
  • It's official: Karrion Kross will defend his title in a Fatal Five-way a week from Sunday at NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021 against Gargano, Dunne, O'Reilly and a returning Adam Cole.
  • Cameron Grimes will face LA Knight at NXT TakeOver: In Your House 2021.
  • Tian Sha (faction)/Xia Li (superstar) cut a promo, challenging Mercedes Martinez to a match at TakeOver
  • Christian Casanova debuted as Carmelo Hayes in a valiant, albeit losing, effort. Very unique offense, he's got talent.
