WWE NXT 2.0 Results - May 17, 2022

WWE NXT 2.0 Live Results (May 17, 2022) - Capitol Wrestling Center, Winter Park, FL, coutresy of our live coverage partner Mike Hogan of RAJAH.com.

 

Opening Video: Previously on NXT 2.0...

We open with a video highlighting the Natalya Neidhart and Cora Jade match last week, the end of their rivalry and the beginning of their apparent friendship after Jade--who lost to Natalya--managed to earn Nattie's respect.

Trick Williams & Carmelo Hayes Make an Entrance

Williams and Melo enter on the mic, insulting Solo Sikoa and Cameron Grimes. Melo states he's going to prove he's the real A-Champion.

Tag Match: Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams vs Solo Sikoa & North American Champion Cameron Grimes

Solo Sikoa makes his entrance to a great pop from the NXT Universe, who chant "Solo" throughout his entire entrance. North American Champion Cameron Grimes is out last to a decent pop but several boos, belt on his shoulder. We start with Williams and Sikoa. Sikoa lays into Williams with big rights and the fans continue to chant "U-so" for the fan-favorite. Solo bull rushes Trick into the corner and tells Grimes to tag in; Grimes complies and works Williams' left arm with a wristlock. Grimes whips Williams but fails to notice Hayes tag himself in by slapping Williams' back. Hayes takes advantage of the confusion and works with Williams to hit a sky-high springboard cross-body that wipes out grimes. Melo and Cameron but make tags simultaneously, and again Solo Sikoa brutalizes Trick. Solo runs him over and moves to the apron, where Hayes attempts to distract him. Solo turns his attention back to Williams, only to have Hayes sucker punch him. We go to break. When we return, we find Melo with Solo in a sleeper and we're shown clips of the action during the break, during which we're told Melo & Trick completely controlled Sikoa during it. Solo Sikoa attempts to fight back, popping Hayes over the top rope but Williams makes the assist and Hayes uses a springboard to flatten Sikoa. Sikoa endures a little longer and makes the hot tag to Grimes. Grimes cleans house then posts up in his corner. He yells "to the moon," only to have Solo tag himself in. Grimes seems perplexed and dismayed, possibly even flabbergasted, and Trick & Melo temporarily regain control. Solo Sikoa catches Melo mid-air, countering an aerial strike into a snap powerslam. Solo and Grimes work together to eliminate Trick and set up the finish that sees Solo go over Carmelo.

Your Winners, Solo Sikoa & Cameron Grimes!

NXT Women's Breakout Tournament, Round One Match: Lash Legend vs Tatum Paxley

Lash Legend is out first as we head to a break ahead of this first-round match! Paxley is out second to a decent digital pop. Yep, NXT 2.0 pipes in the digital crowd, too. The ref calls for the bell and Legend charges Paxley, dropping her with a spinning elbow. Legend immediately covers but Paxley kicks out. Legend whips Tatum into the corner and sets her up for a Lawn Dart. Paxley uses a thigh-lock takedown to drop Legend. Legend breaks the hold by kipping up. Impressive athleticism. Tatum drops the larger Legend with a pair of dropkicks, one to the knee and one to the chin, and covers for a two. Paxley attempts to hoist Legend up on her shoulders but crumbles under the effort. Legend drags Paxley to the corner, slips out the ring, and slams Tatum's knee into the ring post. Tatum uses a Sunset Flip but Lash rolls through and picks the left ankle, stomping away at Paxley. Legend often does cartwheels; she's tall, powerful, and spry AF. Legend uses a nasty knee to the chin to attempt another cover. Legend slaps on a Stretch Muffler submission hold! Paxley, impressively, powers up into a powerbomb position and punches Legend in the face before taking her down. Again, Paxley attempts to hoist Legend up in an Electric Chair position but, again, her knee betrays her. Paxley tries to rub some feeling into her knee, the target of Legend's offense, then hits a beautiful standing Moonsault for a close cover. For a third time, Paxley attempts to lift Legend and for a third time she fails. Legend uses a leaping Big Boot to immediately drop Paxley. Legend covers for the win. She'll face the winner of our final first-round match later tonight!

Your Winner and Advancing to the Semi-Finals, Lash Legend!

NXT Champion Bron Breakker Addresses Joe Gacy

Bron Breakker makes his return after a short hiatus. Breakker mentions that the last time we saw him, Gacy was dumping him like a piece of trash. And now Gacy wants to recruit him. Bron tells Joe that "with all due respect, after everything we've been through you can kiss my ass." He tells Gacy he's not coming to beat him but to "put you unconscious." Steinertalk for "knock you out." Joe Gacy's music plays and we see him with two crimson-robed minions up in the balcony. He starts to talk but Bron tells him to shut up and states he's ready for any of Gacy's plans. He tells Gacy to come down to the ring, but Gacy replies "when a man is consumed by his rage, he becomes predictable. And you have a long history of losing your temper, don't you, Bron? I can see the fire burning in your eyes, envisioning the violence you want to cause, but our journey together is not yet over. You rejected an opportunity...of a life time to join me. But I'm not the kind of guy that holds a grudge. I'm gonna give you--and what all of these people want--that's me and you one-on-one." Meanwhile, the crowd chants loudly "shut the hell up." Breakker accepts Gacy's challenge. "But it's time we up the stakes," Gacy goes on, reminding Bron that he's toyed with him, his father and his family's legacy. "By all means, Bron, you should kick my ass all over this arena. You should inflict pain on me like I've never felt before! You can, Bron, you can go crazy! You can lose control! But you lose control, you lose your most prized possession." Gacy then makes a stipulation that if Breakker is disqualified, he'll still lose the title. Okay. Breakker mulls it over for a few moments and the crowd starts singing "hey hey hey, goodbye." Bron accepts and we end this segment.

Cross-Brand Tag Match: the Viking Raiders vs the Creed Brothers II

War Machine The War Raiders The Viking Experience The Viking Raiders make their way out, sending us off to a break before their rematch against the Creeds. We start with Ivar and Brutus Creed. The two big men spar just briefly before Erik and Julius are brought in. Erik smacks Julius with a clothesline and tags in Ivar. The Viking Raiders use frequent tags and working holds to contain Julius. The crowd continues a dueling chant throughout the match. Erik and Ivar use tandem offense, including an Irish Whip-into-clothesline. Julius finally tags in Brutus and the big son-of-Kane-looking beast takes out both Viking Raiders. Brutus mounts Erik and pounds on him with big, meaty fists, absolutely pounding the bloody brute into proverbial pulp. But Brutus isn't done there as the big man sends Erik out of the ring, ascends the top turnbuckle and dives, wiping out the Vikings with what Vic Joseph and Wade Barrett dub "the Brutus Bomb"--a cannonball off the top from the brickhouse of a man. We head to break.

Back from the break. Julius spars with Erik as we return, then tags in Brutus. Julius body slams Brutus on top of Erik, who covers for two. The Creeds take Erik into the corner, where Brutus and Julius take a try at frequent tags to contain Erik. The Viking refuses to give in, however, and battles both men, throwing fists left and right. Ivar makes the hot tag in and Ivar runs over both Julius and Brutus! We see Roddy Strong show up at ringside, wearing a black hoodie like last week, and he's joined by Damon Kemp. Ivar is tagged in and Julius charges right into a sit-out senton. The Viking Raiders set up Julius, with Ivar climbing the middle turnbuckle to hit a huge diving splash on Julius. The match pace picks up as Julius fights off both Viking Raiders, including attempting a Superplex on Ivar off the top. Ivar perches on top of the ring post and looks for a diving splash but Julius moves! Julius covers Ivar only to have Erik make the save! The crowd rips off positive chants as both teams continue to go at it. Damon Kemp ends up causing a distraction to the ref, and Roderick Strong enters the ring--only to be wiped out by Julius Creed, who chastises Strong for interfering by yelling "we don't need you, Roddy!" This allows the Raiders to double-team Julius, thanks to the distraction/assist, and pick up the win, tying the series at 1-1.
Your Winners, the Viking Raiders!

Singles Match: Andre Chase w/ Bodhi Hayward vs Grayson Waller

After a prior vignette, in which Tiffany Stratton asked Grayson to "take care of" Chase for her, we're finally to the match. No, Bodhi's not dressed like a cheerleader as he was last week. Grayson and Chase battle early on, but Waller takes the lead early on and maintains it most of the match. Waller takes his time to taunt Chase U int he crowd and deliver slow, deliberate strikes to Andre Chase. Waller's arrogance gets the best of him as it leads to Chase firing up his comeback sequence. Chase uses two axe-handle blows and a snap belly to back suplex to drop Waller to a huge pop. Chase does the "Chase U" kicks in which he stomps Waller once for every letter in "Chase U." Waller attempts to rally; Chase dumps him over the top rope to the outside, inadvertently crashing him onto Bodhi. Andre stops to check on Bodhi, enters the ring and walks right into Waller's rolling cutter finisher.
Your Winner, Grayson Waller!

 

Backstage: Toxic Attraction

After Indi Hartwell called out Mandy Rose earlier in the program, we find Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne watching video of Kayden & Katana (KC2) talking about being the "only true tag team" in NXT's women's division. Rose and her TA compatriots decide they've got to remind the locker room who they are.

NXT Women's Breakout Tournament, Round One Match: Roxanne Perez vs Kiana James

Perez and Kiana James is out. James rocks the librarian-themed glasses and subtle gear but removes the glasses prior to the bell. James looks to lock up with Perez but Perez ducks under and applies a rear waist lock. James with a standing switch. James counters an arm bar into a shoulder hold. Roxy whips Kiana into the ropes but is run over by the larger James. Both women attempt move and counter each other, leading to both women nodding in respect. Perez uses three arm drags in a row before kicking James in the gut. Perez with a shotgun dropkick for a close two. James counters a suplex attempt and begins a lengthy stretch of offense. James uses working holds to wear down Perez before attempting a Boston Crab. Perez crawls towards the ropes only to have James drag her back to the middle of the ring. Perez escapes and rolls up James twice, then attempts a Crucifix Pin only to have it countered with a body slam. James hooks the leg but only gets two. James fails to put away Perez and Roxy starts her comeback sequence. Roxy battles James around the ring and gets a close fall after a Side Russian Leg Sweep. Perez attempts to lift James but her back, the target of most of James' offense, doesn't permit it. James with a Sidewalk Slam out of nowhere for another close call. Perez suddenly hits the Pop Rox to pick up the win!

Your Winner and Advancing to the Semi-Finals, Roxanne Perez!

 

Backstage: Edris Enofé & Malik Blade and Tony D'Angelo's "Mamamlukes"

We cut to the back where Edris Enofé & Malik Blade mock Santos Escobar and Tony D's vignettes earlier this night, impersonating them. Tony's henchmen--Troy Donovan and Channing Lauren--walk up. The two teams exchange words and set up a match for next week.

Singles Match: Nathan Frazer vs Wes Lee

Wes Lee is out first to a decent reaction, followed by Nathan Frazer (who's new entrance is much better). The crowd seems evenly split between these two youngsters, with loud chants for both men throughout the course of this match. Lee and Frazer start off lightning-fast as both high-octane cruiserweights seem at a stalemate. Each man attempts a move, only to have the other avoid or reverse it, with no man taking a hit for the first minute. The crowd cheers for both men and chants "NXT" at the impressive display of agility. Lee and Frazer go at it again, with Lee sending Frazer to the floor. Lee hits a springboard cross body to wipe out Frazer and whips him into the ring. Before Lee can enter, however, Frazer pops up and hits a Suicide Dive! Frazer looks for an axe-handle smash off the top but Lee counters and catches his foot. Lee drops Frazer with a German Suplex, bridging into a pin for a close two. Frazer and Lee fight on the turnbuckles as Frazer looks for a middle-rope Superplex. Lee counters mid-air, converting it into a splash and cover for another close fall! Lee runs at Frazer and right into a speedy Superkick that looked sick when it hit. Lee recovers, however, and both men run off the ropes. Both men crash mid-air as they both attempt cross body strikes. The crowd again rips off a "this is awesome" chant until Von Wagner strikes from out of nowhere!
Your Winner by Disqualification, Nathan Frazer!

After the Match: A Beatdown So Easy, Even a Caveman Can Do It!

Wagner sends Frazer out of the ring then destroys Wes Lee in the ring. Wagner picks up Lee and literally throws him out of the ring, across the walkway and sends him crashing into and across the commentary desk as the crowd yells "holy shit!" We get replays and, indeed, holy shit applies.

Singles Main Event Match: Tony D'Angelo vs Santos Escobar

Both men cut vignettes earlier in the night, ordering their respective groups to not interfere and not come out for this main-event match. We head to a break. Finally we get entrances for our main event as each man comes out solo as pledged. We get the bell at 9:54 with six minutes left! The crowd seems slightly more behind Tony and both men lock up. Tony with a gut punch before doing a little jig to taunt Santos. Santos uses a rear waistlock takedown and looks for a head lock. D'Angelo attempts to counter Escobar, but Escobar's technical skill set pairs well with his speed. Escobar takes a moment to mock Tony with a jig, just as Tony did to him earlier. D'Angelo takes an early lead, using a mount and pound on Escobar briefly before taunting the audience. Tony D throws shoulders into Escobar's midsection in the corner then counters an attempted springboard with a throat chop. D'Angelo drops an elbow across Escobar's head and this a running swinging neckbreaker to leave Escobar rolling in pain. Tony D with another neck lock then scrapes Escobar's face along the length of the rope as Escobar screams out. The crowd loudly with a hot dueling chant. Escobar starts to rally, using a step-up Enziguri to send Tony fleeing the ring. Escobar runs from rope to rope and back, looking

for a Suicide Dive--and instead catching a big right from Tony D'Angelo! We go to break!
During the break Tony D'Angelo maintains control. Escobar attempts to come back, throwing rights but Tony D'Angelo again shuts him down. Tony slows the pace of the match during the break, taking time to scream taunts at Escobar and he spends more time pacing than attacking. Escobar again attempts to fight back, ducking under a clothesline and attempting a Hurricanrana--but Tony D counters that into a Powerbomb! Tony kneels behind Escobar, looking for holds as we return from the break! We're now in overrun territory. Tony maintains control for two more minutes, taking his time with Escobar. Finally Escobar snatches back the lead and immediately goes after Tony's arms. Tony D finds himself in an arm submission and it takes several long seconds for him to reach the rope for the break. Escobar hits a dropkick on D'Angelo's left shoulder, continuing to focus his attack on the shoulder. Escobar looks for a cover but gets two.

Escobar continues to focus on Tony's shoulder, using a working hold before clubbing the shoulder with forearms. Now it's Tony D'Angelo's turn to fire up a comeback sequence, laying out Santos with a pair of clotheslines and a pair of belly-to-belly suplexes, firing up the crowd and himself. Loud boos and a "you still suck" chant for Tony D as the crowd seems to both love and hate both superstars. D'Angelo attempts a corner move but Escobar positions o the apron as D'Angelo sits on the top turnbuckle. Both men jockey for position as they both stand on the top rope. Escobar shakes his head and hits a top-rope Hurricanrana that elicits such a loud and lengthy "holy" shit chant that we lose audio for several seconds. Thanks, Censors. D'Angelo recovers and looks for his trusty crowbar. Out come Legado Del Fantasma and the Mamelukes (he called 'em that, so I'm rolling with it.) Both pair of men brawl on the ramp as Santos retrieves brass knuckles and clocks Tony, knocking him out.

Your Winner, Santos Escobar!

Joe Gacy Addresses Bron Breakker

We see Gacy outside with his hooded, cloaked minions. Gacy states that Breakker declining his invite was a big mistake as Breakker won't be able to control his anger next week, or even at In Your House. Joe Gacy thinks he'll win the title, and thus take over the brand and--as the Brain reminded Pinky weekly--take over the world. We have the camera zoom out to show him cackling on a roof top and we fade to black.

Next Week on NXT 2.0

The Diamond Mine's Roderick Strong & Damon Kemp vs NXT Tag Champions Pretty Deadly. Tony D'Angelo's "mamalukes" versus Edris Enofé & Malik Blade. The NXT Women's Breakout Tournament will begin its semi-finals round. Duke Hudson takes on NXT Champion Bron Breakker, and Indi Hartwell is set to face off with NXT Women's Champion Mandy Rose.
