NXT 2.0 Results

*Live from the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, FL.

*Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark backstage with McKenzie…they’re excited to be in the WWE Women’s Tag Title Tournament & to have the advantage of being the unknown team…but both have business here tonight first.

(1)  Nikkita Lyons def. Kiana James…Lyons hits a Spinning Back Kick & follows with the Clam Slam for the win (04:10)…AFTER…James recovers enough to retrieve her bag of research & clobber Lyons with it from behind.

(2)  Wes Lee def. Trick Williams in a Rounds Match…which apparently these two have decided will be a boxing match…

Round 1:  No falls…but both keep on the boxing gloves that I thought were just part of their entrance…the round ends with Lee raining body blows on Trick & Trick being “saved by the bell.”

Round 2:  Gloves are off this round…they fight to the floor & Carmelo Hayes holds Lee’s foot as he tries to slide back in, allowing Williams the time to deliver a Pump Kick to the face for the 1st fall by pinfall (00:59 of Rd. 2)…Williams 1-0.

Round 3:  No falls.

Round 4:  Carmelo Hayes loads something illegal into one glove, so Trick starts the round with only his left glove on…Lee uses a Crucifix for the Roll Up pinfall to take the 2nd fall (1:20 of Rd. 4)…Williams 1 – Lee 1…after the bell, Williams finally makes contact with Lee’s jaw & appears to knock him out between rounds.

Round 5:  Lee can barely get to his feet to start the round, as it ends Lee has the upper hand…he grabs one glove of his own & lands a right hand that’s good enough for the 3rd fall by pinfall (02:54 of Rd. 5…13:19 overall)…Lee 2-1.


*Arianna Grace is in Andre Chase’s office to complain about Thea Hail hitting her in the face with a football…Thea explains it was an accident, she was playing catch with Bodhi…both ladies will debut tonight & settle their beef in the ring.

*Carmelo Hayes is still in the ring…pats himself on the back for beating Nathan Frazer last week…Frazer’s music plays, but it’s really Giovanni Vinci who shows up in the ring behind Melo to surprise him with a challenge for Heatwave…Melo accepts & takes a swipe…both men miss a few strikes & refs separate them.

*Tiffany Stratton walks into her private dressing room where Wendy Choo is waiting to turn the lights out & use night-vision goggles to dish out a beating…Choo stands over the fallen Stratton & tells her, “this isn’t over.”

(5)  Pretty Deadly def. Malik Blade & Edris Enofe…Prince slides a chair in the ring to Wilson, but before he can use it Josh Briggs takes it away…when Enofe charges Wilson, Wilson steps aside & Enofe runs into the chair Briggs is still holding, knocking Briggs off the apron into Brooks Jensen…Spilt Milk on Enofe, Prince covers for the win (04:38)…AFTER…Lash Legend attacks Fallon Henley.

*Cameron Grimes is walking backstage when Javier Bernal teases Grimes about getting knocked over last week during the Wagner/Sikoa Street Fight…Grimes takes a step towards Bernal, but a member of security calms him down…Joe Gacy & the Schism approach…Gacy asks where Grimes is going…Grimes says, “Home”…Gacy asks, “To who?”…Grimes walks out.
