Dominik and Rey Mysterio appear, women's Dusty Classic finals set for 3/22, North American Title Ladder match updates, A-Kid debuts

Former SmackDown Tag Team Champions Rey and Dominik Mysterio appeared on the 3/15 NXT 2.0. They had a segment with Legado Del Fantasma (Santos Escobar, Elektra Lopez, Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde) and that led to Dominik and Raul going one-on-one. Dominik scored the win in his first NXT match.

The women’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic finals are taking place on 3/22. Kay Lee Ray and Io Shirai will meet Dakota Kai and Wendy Choo with the winners receiving a shot at the NXT Women’s Tag Titles.

Santos Escobar is the first talent to qualify for the North American Title Ladder match at Stand & Deliver. He now joins the champion Carmelo Hayes in the match and on next week’s program, Solo Sikoa will meet Roderick Strong and in addition to that, NXT UK’s A-Kid is taking on Grayson Waller to fill two more spots in the Ladder match. A-Kid made his NXT 2.0 debut on 3/15 and defeated KUSHIDA.

At Stand & Deliver, Cora Jade is challenging Mandy Rose for the NXT Women’s Title. Jade provided an update on Raquel Gonzalez and shared that Raquel is expected to be out of action for 4-6 weeks. Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne) ‘injured’ Gonzalez during the Dusty Classic semifinals.

Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta went one-on-one. Indi was able to get the win as Persia was distracted by Dexter Lumis who was staring down Duke Hudson on the outside of the ring.

Before Sarray could ‘transform’ into her ring gear, she was ambushed from behind by Tiffany Stratton. Stratton defeated the ‘casual’ version of Sarray in singles competition.

Adding on to the lineup for next week’s show is The Creed Brothers (Julius & Brutus Creed) versus Grizzled Young Veterans (Zack Gibson & James Drake).
