WWE NXT 2.0 Results - September 14, 2021
All change for NXT
A new era of WWE's developmental brand arrived on September 14 and NXT will henceforth be known as NXT 2.0. Gone is the black and gold and WWE injected a healthy dose of pink and purple lighting throughout the broadcast to illuminate the 'Home Of NXT', no longer named the Capitol Wrestling Center.
Following Samoa Joe's relinquishment of the NXT Championship on Monday, a new champion had to be crowned and the four competitors in the title match - Pete Dunne, Tommaso Ciampa, Kyle O'Reilly and LA Knight - opened the show and cut promos. Knight's mouth dropped him in hot water, though, after the debuting Bron Breakker interrupted the former Million Dollar Champion.
This led to the opening contest and Breakker defeated Knight in three minutes in a generic squash match.
There was then a change to the main event later in the show as Pete Dunne and Ridge Holland attacked Kyle O'Reilly backstage, which led to the debuting Von Wagner being added to the NXT Championship match.
Once the main event match got underway, all four men fought back and forth for 10 minutes. The debuting Wagner looked to have the match won in the final moments after he decked LA Knight with a Double Underhook Slam, but Tommaso Ciampa connected with a knee before Von could make the cover. This left the motionless Knight easy prey for The Blackheart and Ciampa put him away with the Fairytale Ending to win the NXT Championship.
Ciampa briefly celebrated inside the new home of NXT but it didn't take long for his first possible challenger to reveal themselves as Bron Breakker came face-to-face with the new champion backstage as the show went off the air.
Beyond the NXT Title picture, Dexter Lumis and Indi Hartwell finally tied the knot. In a funny segment which included Dexter Gaylord Lumis choking out the priest and Indi revealing that Lumis snuck into her room while Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae were sleeping, both The Tortured Artist and Hartwell tied the knot after saying "I do."
Elsewhere on NXT, it was squash matches galore as several developmental talents made their TV debuts. A new mafia character in Tony D'Angelo also cut a promo on the mean streets of Chicago and he will be debuting inside the WWE Performance Center soon.
NXT did have another match that went over four minutes on the show as Mandy Rose, Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin, now known as Toxic Attraction, defeated Kacy Catanzaro, Kayden Carter and Sarray. The match was initially a tag team match between Carter & Catanzaro against Dolin & Jayne but the contest ended in a disqualification after interference from Mandy Rose. William Regal, in typical main roster fashion, then ordered the match to be restarted as a six-woman tag.
