NXT champion Tommaso Champa challenged Bron Breaker to the ring for a chance to become the champion he was looking for.

Raquel Gonzalez def. Dakota Kai in a street fight
Raquel Gonzalez wrapped up the final chapter of her bitter rivalry with Dakota Kai after a brutal street brawl that left both superstars beaten and wounded.
Gonzalez didn’t even make it to the ring before chaos began when Kai jumped backstage at Big Mami Cool. The two battled backstage at NXT Arena until they finally stepped into the ring using chairs, trash cans and steel steps to unleash their rage.
Gonzalez survived the devastation, blasting Kai up the steel steps before rolling her out into the ring and delivering Chingon’s thunderbomb to the bin for victory.
Cora Jade interrupted Raquel Gonzalez to stage a Triple Threat match with Mandy Rose at the NXT Women’s Championship in New Year’s Evil.
Immediately after the conclusion of Street Fight with Dakota, Kai Raquel Gonzalez set up a table in the ring and demanded a rematch with NXT women’s champion Mandy Rose. Instead, Cora Jade came out with a similar vendetta against Rose and Toxic Attraction. Rose was in a festive mood and she gave both superstars what they wanted: the opportunity to compete in the NXT Women’s Championship in New Year’s Evil.
GYV vs. The Creed Brothers ended without a competition
The tag team unit fell into chaos when a full-scale brawl erupted outside the ring during a clash between GYV and The Creed Brothers.
Julius and Brutus Creed beat GYV, but the quick wits and cunning tactics of Zach Gibson and James Drake turned the tide until Kushida and Ikemen Jiro set up their own private table of Japanese commentary in the ring.
With the two teams in the ring exchanging blows, Jacket Time was eventually joined by Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen on the entrance ramp. When the action spilled out of the ring, GYV attempted to smash Brutus Creed through the Japanese canteen, but Jacket Time intervened to stop them on the move, leading to an all-out fight between the four teams.
Dexter Loomis, def. Stunt Williams
Dexter Loomis waited a long time to get revenge on Trick Williams for his injured arm, and finally he put his demons on the air, putting Williams to sleep.
Williams kept Loomis hooked for a while thanks to the support of Carmelo Hayes in the ring, but Williams was eventually left all alone when Roderick Strong eluded the diamond mine to attack Hayes. The tormented artist responded with a side kick and threw his foot away, and when Williams made a cheap toss with his boot, Loomis parried and fell silent so Williams fell asleep.
As Loomis straightened up, Grayson Waller sneaked up from behind to destroy him with a barrage of chair blows, claiming to be “destroying the first NXT family one by one.”
A.J. Styles vs. Grayson Waller
Grayson Waller posted a few select words for AJ Styles on social media last week, and The Phenomenal One came to NXT 2.0 to give his answer in person.
Edris Enofe def. Von wagner
Von Wagner wanted to fulfill his promise to leave a path of broken bodies in his path of war, but he averted his eyes from the ball and Edris Inofe won a quick victory.
Wagner dominated Enofe throughout the match while Robert Stone was taking notes at the ring, but when Wagner went for a powerful bomb, Enofe turned the script over and folded it to win. Outraged, Wagner destroyed Enofe before bumping into Stone on his way backstage.
Io Shirai def. Electra Lopez
The drama between Electra Lopez and Xion Quinn continued when Quinn returned the favor, costing La Madryna her match against Io Shirai.
Lopez almost kept Shirai on the ground, but the Genius of Heaven could not be contained. Swapping blows between the two superstars, Quinn announced his presence in the ring by dropping Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde.
Leaping onto his apron, Quinn lured Lopez with a mistletoe before Santos Escobar ran into hindrance. The distraction was the revelation Shirai needed, punching Lopez with his palm before landing in a devastating lunar storm for the pin.
Pete Dunn, def. Tony D’Angelo
Pete Dunn may have made Tony D’Angelo eat his own words, but D’Angelo had the last laugh after crushing Brucer’s arm with a crowbar.
D’Angelo did it right in front of Dunne with powerful suplexes, but The Worst Man in the NXT bounced back with a U-turn and a blow to the head before starting work on D’Angelo’s joints.
D’Angelo ended the match with his modified swinging suplex, but Dunn caught his arm and snapped his fingers before delivering the Bitter End for 1-2-3.
After the match, “The Made Man of NXT” deflected his unfinished aggression against Dunn with his trusty crowbar before unleashing it on BruiserWeight’s hand.
