WWE NXT 2.0 Results (02/01/2022 – Capitol Wrestling Center)
We kick off the Tuesday, February 1, 2022 edition of WWE NXT 2.0 airing from the WWE Capitol Wrestling center in Winter Park, Florida as the clock hits 8:00 p.m. EST and we see the opening theme before immediately heading into the arena as the commentary team reminds us that we are on the Road to Wrestlemania as we are officially welcomed to tonight’s edition of NXT. The entrance theme for Imperium sounds over the speakers in the WWE Capitol Wrestling Center as the camera pans to the top of the stage where we see Imperium and Gunther standing tall before they begin to make their way down the ramp and enter the ring.
IMPERIUM VS. DIAMOND MINE W/MALCOLM BIVENS & IVY NILE
With Imperium and Gunther at ringside, the entrance theme dies down as the crowd begins a “WALTER!” chant from around the ring inside the arena. The competitors make their way out next. The entrance theme sounds for Diamond Mine, accompanied by Malcolm Bivens and Ivy Nile. They make their way down the ramp and join Imperium inside the ring as they prepare to get the first match-up of the evening underway. Before the referee can signal for the bell, Before the bell can ring, Imperium attacks Diamond Mine which leads to an all out brawl around the ring
Finally everything settles enough for the match to officially get underway as the referee signals for the bell and we kick off the match with Fabia Aichner and Brutus. TO start the action, Aichner looks for a shoulder tackle though it doesn’t faze Brutus in the slightest. Brutus takes this opportunity to counter as he lifts and slams Aichner to the canvas. We see that Roderick Strong hasn’t made it back to the apron yet but the Creed Brothers keep Aichner isolated in their corner and utilize quick tags as the match continues.
We get some back and forth action between Aichner and Brutus until finally Barthel is able to successfully tag in where he immediately grabs Brutus for a submission attempt, taking hold of his arm. Brutus is able to get up with Barthel still holding on and Brutus is able to hit a spinebuster which he quickly follows up with some heavy ground-and-pound action. Next we see Julius tag in where he continues the offense until finally Barthel is able to counter with a snapmare followed by a running kick to the chest.
He stops to pose before Barthel then hits a kick in the corner, then an under-hook suplex and an elbow drop from the middle rope. At this point, Gunther tags in and immediately begins to chop down Julius followed by some heavy forearm blows. Next Barthel tags back in. We then see Creed hit a suplex and both Strong and Aichner get tags. Strong lands a series of chops and a backbreaker, then hits Gunther on the apron. Strong with some running forearms to Aichner leaning on the ropes, but Gunther tags in and clocks him with a lariat. Finally we head to the first commercial break of the evening!
As we return from the commercial break, we see Julius Creed tag in and run riot over Barthel. Aichner tags in but the Creed Brothers hit a double spine buster. Gunther breaks the pin, then tags in with Strong and they trade blows. Strong connects with a dropkick before tagging Brutus. Gunther elbows Brutus as Aichner and Barthel drag Strong to the outside and send him into the steel steps.
Everyone knocks each other down on the outside until we’re left with Gunther and Brutus in the ring. The crowd are firmly behind Brutus as Gunther grabs him with a sleeper. Brutus slings Gunther off and looks for a clothesline but it’s blocked by the general. Brutus eats a few chops to the chest, then a powerbomb and Gunther covers Brutus for the win.
Backstage – LA Knight Speaks
Following the first match up of the evening, we head backstage where we see LA Knight who is talking about Grayson Waller. Knight states that Waller is, “terrified of the ass kicking that is coming his way but no restraining order will stop it.”
At this point both Joe Gacy and Harland approach Knight. Joe Gacy informs Knight that he can help him get over his obsession with Waller. Knight responds by stating that he’d like the three of them to head out to the ring later tonight and see if he can’t get two more restraining orders. Again we head to commercial break!

To start off, Gigi Dolin calls Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta’s win last night “a fluke” as well as “a death sentence”. Chiming in, Jacy Jayne says they’ll put the tag titles on the line in two weeks at Vengeance Day. The entrance theme sounds for Kay Lee Ray.
Enter Kay Lee Ray
Kay Lee Ray joins and states that it’s Mandy’s turn to give her the title match that she wants, to which Mandy immediately declines. Ray nods as she states that she thought she’d say that so she wants to have some fun, and threatens them all with the bat. Rose tells her to put the bat down and Jayne and Dolin will leave, and they do. At this point Kay Lee Ray informs them that she’s the longest-reigning women’s champion of the modern era, and if anyone deserves a title shot, it’s here.
This leads to Mandy stating that she doesn’t care and she wants to talk about herself, asking Kay if she knows any of her accomplishments. She then proceeds to list them as she states that she has been the face of multiple international campaigns, seven magazine covers, bikini world champion, and she claims to be the epitome of what every woman aspires to be and what every man wishes he could be with. At this point KLR reminds her of when she was sucking face with Otis, and Mandy says that was then and she’s the hottest thing going now. She wants to be completely transparent in the nicest way possible— all the talent in the world will never replace her body. Kay says she’ll have her title match by the end of the night and slaps Rose across the face!

Jade jumps at Gonzalez who catches her mid-air and with a take down goes for the cover. Jade kicks out at two. More trash talk between the two women as the match continues.
Gonzalez plants Jade for another cover, Jade again kicks out at the two. Gonzalez makes her way back to her feet as Jade struggles to her feet, holding her back in pain. Gonzalez with yet another cover and yet another kick out. Jade is shouting out in pain as the crowd chants. Jade bends the fingers back of Gonzalez and is able to break free only to get a kick from Gonzalez that takes her down once again! Gonzalez stretches Jade over her shoulder before slamming her into the turnbuckles and sets her on the top rope.
Jade takes this opportunity to strike Gonzalez in the face. Jade hits a submission as she attempts to get a full arm extension while holding onto Gonzalez who finally slams Jade down to the canvas forcing a break. Gonzalez to the second rope, Jade rolls out of the way before getting back to her feet and running at Gonzalez. This time Jade rolls Gonzalez for a two count, Gonzalez kicking out just in time.

At this point, Breakker responds to Ciampa by stating that he respects that, and Ciampa. Next Tommaso informs Breakker that he wants to ensure that he remains Champion. This leads Bron to respond to Ciampa by stating that they’re going to rip Legado del Fantasma in half.
In-Ring – Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams
As we return to the inside of the arena, both the North American Champion, Carmelo Hayes, and Trick Williams make their way to the ring as their music sounds in the arena. Once inside the ring, we see Trick with a mic in hand and he begins by stating that Tony D’Angelo can’t beat Cameron Grimes… yet he thinks he can handle the A Champion? Same for Grimes who couldn’t hack it.
Hayes continues on to state that he won’t verbally run Grimes down because he is a true threat to him, even if the fans don’t like him. And that’s why he’s putting more work in in the gym, in the ring, and on Ollie Jayy. Hayes says he will always be looking down on Grimes.
Cameron Grimes Joins
On that note, the entrance theme for Cameron Grimes sounds as Grimes makes his way out. Before Grimes can say anything, Trick calls him a bum. He says he’s going to take his boot off and kick his slimy ass with it. Cameron responds by stating that he in fact is NOT slimy… he’s grimy (bazinga!). Grimes continues on to state that Melo’s hair looks like Spongebob’s house, which must make Trick Squidward. He finishes off by stating that he saw both men on Instagram looking at OllieJayy’s bikini bottoms.
Trick explains to Grimes that he didn’t catch a word of that, but he wonders which one of them is the Champion. Hayes chimes in stating that Grimes will find out in two weeks because he’s going to shoot for the moon and take the stars as casualties. Hayes and Trick leave but Grimes says it’s funny he mentioned stars because in two weeks it will be a one star match, and that star is going to the moon.
