NXT 2.0 Results (7/26) – Tonight’s NXT 2.0 episode opens up on the USA Network with Zoey Stark coming out to a pop. Vic Joseph welcomes us to NXT at the WWE Performance Center in Orlando, Florida. He’s joined at ringside by Wade Barrett.
Stark is fired up as she says it feels so good to be back in this ring, we just don’t know how good. She says she wasn’t sure if she would ever get to feel this feeling again. After tearing her muscle off the bone at Halloween Havoc, doctors told her she’d be out for a year and that was a tough pill to swallow, but she knew she could beat that timetable, and she began the day after surgery at working for her return. Fans continue to cheer Stark on. Stark talks about wondering if fans would remember, and how she lived in the trainer’s room trying to get back, and she returned 4 months early. She goes on and thanks everyone for the reaction she’s received since returning last week.
Stark brings up how she is the #1 contender to the NXT Women’s Title but Toxic Attraction stands in the way, the same women who took her out and nearly ended her career. Stark says they almost took her career but she will take the title from Mandy Rose. The music interrupts and out comes Cora Jade. Jade is above the crowd on the platform now. She mocks Stark but fans boo. Stark recalls how she threw Jade’s scrawny ass to the floor last week. Jade says Stark has been back one week and she’s already sick of her. Jade whines about 19 others ganging up on her last week, and says she would be #1 contender and the one to defeat Rosa if it wasn’t for them. Stark was disgusted by what Jade did to Roxanne Perez. They have more words and Stark gets a pop for calling Jade a piece of trash. Jade goes on but she’s interrupted by Rose, Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne. Rose says they’re talking a big game but when it comes to this title, she only wins, and tomorrow she become the fourth-longest-reigning NXT Women’s Champion in history. She says goodbye Bayley, Charlotte Flair, Rhea Ripley, Raquel Rodriguez, and tomorrow… thank you Paige, but toot-a-loo to you too, honey.
Rose demands people put respect on her name. Stark has the perfect idea – Rose defend against her tonight. Fans pop. Dolin talks about how they’ve been running the show while Stark has been gone. Dolin says she will fight Stark tonight, put her back on the shelf, and her dream of winning the title will remain a dream. Stark talks trash to the heels as their music starts up.
– We go backstage to Grayson Waller, who calls the viewer an idiot. Waller says that girl isn’t following the idiot when she’s too busy following Waller. He goes on and says he’s going to embarrass Wes Lee tonight, almost as bad as the viewer embarrasses themselves by looking in the mirror. Waller laughs and walks off. We go to commercial.
