Hello everyone and welcome back to the usual NXT 2.0 appointment. The evening literally kicks off with the first match that finally sees the full Imperium in action. 6-MAN TAG MATCH: Imperium vs Diamond Mine It goes without saying that we are offered an excellent match with both teams fighting to the last.
Noteworthy is the exchange between Strong and Fabian with the member of the Diamond who manages to greatly worry his opponent until Gunther decides to intervene. One of the Creed brothers really tries everything to stop the Imperium battleship but Gunther is unstoppable and with a devastating powerbomb brings home the dispute.
Result: victory by pinfall of the Imperium. MSK and Jacket Time competed in their first matches in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic. Both teams showcased their athleticism and looked poised to win.
MSK and Jacket Time competed
The Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic is underway, and WWE NXT has just witnessed its first big debut of the year.
Zachary Wentz and Dezmond Xavier are no more the Rascalz, but MSK. They have also been rechristened as Wes Lee and Nash Carter and made their NXT debut against Isiah Scott and Jake Atlas. Now we are offered a spot that sees the Toxic Attraction engaged with the couple champions who warn Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta of the risks they will face having asked for a titled match.
The three are interrupted by Kay Lee Ray who, without too many words, asks Mandy Rose for a titled match, which she obviously refuses at first. The two have a heated argument with the challenger who claims to have made the history of NXT UK while the champion declares instead that he is superior to her and that no champion could ever take her place.
Kay gets impatient and then decides to go hard with her by hitting Mandy in her face and forcing all the Toxics to flee her by chasing them with the baseball bat. Now let's move on to an all-female match involving one of the best prospects of this "new" brand.
Later in the night, The Grizzled Young Veterans took on Andre Chase and Bodhi Hayward. Chase showed Bodhi some moves early, and the two men dominated James Drake for some time. Zack Gibson got the tag, and he laid out the Chase U teacher to take control. Bodhi saved his teacher a few times, but the two heels could not gain much momentum.
