Weeks out from Stand & Deliver, NXT is presenting their special ‘Roadblock’ edition of NXT 2.0 on March 8th. Scheduled for the program is an NXT Championship Triple Threat match that will see Bron Breakker defend against Tommaso Ciampa and Dolph Ziggler. Breakker and Ciampa opened tonight’s NXT 2.0 and defeated Robert Roode and Dolph Ziggler.

The 2022 men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic winners The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed) will receive their NXT Tag Title match next week. They’ll be challenging Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel.

Also, the feud between L.A. Knight and Grayson Waller comes to a head when they meet in a Last Man Standing match.

The semifinal matches for the women’s Dusty Classic are locked in. Wendy Choo and Dakota Kai bested Persia Pirotta and Indi Hartwell to advance. Cora Jade and Raquel Gonzalez defeated Valentina Feroz and Yulisa Leon in the tournament. Below are the semifinal bouts:

  • Io Shirai & Kay Lee Ray vs. Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter
  • Wendy Choo & Dakota Kai vs. Raquel Gonzalez & Cora Jade

Lash Legend was in action on the 3/1 NXT 2.0. She picked up a win over Amari Miller. Post-match, she mentioned that she’s the star and not Nikkita Lyons, who made her NXT TV debut last week. It was then made official that ‘Lashing Out with Lash Legend’ is returning with Lyons as a guest.

According to PWInsider, Amari Miller was stretchered out after the match with Lash.

Solo Sikoa was undefeated coming into tonight’s show. His 5-0 win streak was ended by Gunther.
