WWE NXT 2.0 featured the long-awaited reboot of WWE NXT amid reports of talent feeling uneasy and weird with Triple H currently on the mend at the start of a new era. With the monolithic Internet Wrestling Community sharpening its anti-WWE narratives about the new NXT, longtime WWE employee Kevin Dunne was reportedly backstage just to be sure.
Coming off the news of Samoa Joe vacating the NXT Championship due to an undisclosed injury, tonight’s Fatal 4-Way main event between Kyle O’Reilly, LA Knight, Pete Dunne and Tommaso Ciampa will crown a new NXT champion to kick off the new era.
WWE NXT 2.0 advertised the following matches:
- The Creed Brothers (Brutus & Julius) will be in action
- Ridge Holland will be in action
- The official in-ring debut of Hit Row’s “B-Fab” Briana Brandy
- Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter vs. Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne
- The wedding of Indi Hartwell and Dexter Lumis
- LA Knight vs. Kyle O’Reilly vs. Pete Dunne vs. Tommaso Ciampa for the vacant NXT Title

WWE NXT 2.0 Results: Tuesday, September 14, 2021
Bron Breakker def. LA Knight
NXT’s arena was massively improved from the dark and desolate CWC.
Bron Breakker is the son of Rick Steiner, which I don’t believe was brought up on commentary.
Bron Breakker sounds like a young Scott Steiner. It was almost uncanny.
Breakker’s shocking win to open NXT 2..0 will lead a lot of people to believe that LA Knight is winning the WWE NXT Championship. They’ll blame Kevin Dunn for it, but never forget that the old NXT featured Ilja Dragunov losing his debut match before winning the NXT UK Championship, and Carmelo Hayes losing his first match since the NNXT Breakout Tournament.
IMPERIUM def. Brooks Jensen Josh Briggs
This was an enhancement match designed to feature IMPERIUM, whom I would argue should be used to feature a more charismatic tag team.
To this point, NXT has been mostly par for the course. A couple of new faces, sure, but much of the same product.
B-Fab def. Katrina Cortez
They kept this one short, but B-Fab looked just fine in there and showed a lot of star power throughout.
B-Fab and Elektra Lopez officially became the first women’s angle to be shot in the new NXT. Unfortunately, their confrontation was cut short as NXT threw to the back.
Carmelo Hayes Appears Live with Trick Williams
I love that they’re doing something with Carmelo Hayes, but Trick Williams feels awkward as a manager and would be a better fit as a tag team partner.
I was very surprised that Duke Hudson was beaten down in this era of NXT. They couldn’t have saved this spot for Drake Maverick? That would have gotten way more heat.
Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolan and Jacy Jane def. Sarray, Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter
