Next week’s episode of NXT 2.0 is going to be the brand’s Spring Breakin’ special and additions to that show lineup were made such as Lash Legend teaming with Natalya to take on Cora Jade and Nikkita Lyons. This came about after Lyons bested Lash in the show opener. Natalya ambushed Nikkita from behind and Cora Jade ran in for the save.

Tonight’s NXT 2.0 was supposed to feature NXT UK’s Nathan Frazer in action. Grayson Waller took out Frazer’s opponent and after a brawl between Frazer and Waller, they are now set to go one-on-one at Spring Breakin’.

In addition to those announcements, advertised for next week is Tony D’Angelo and Santos Escobar’s sit-down discussion. Escobar cost D’Angelo his match against Von Wagner by hitting him in the leg with a steel pipe.

Arianna Grace f.k.a. Bianca Carelli was the first name announced for the NXT women’s Breakout tournament which begins on May 10th. Joining the fray is Lash Legend, Kiana James and Sloane Jacobs.

In the final segment of the show, WWE Hall of Famer Rick Steiner appeared to inform Joe Gacy that despite Bron Breakker being pushed off a platform last week, he’ll still be defending the NXT Title against Gacy at Spring Breakin’. Gacy and his druids had Steiner cornered which led to Breakker coming out but ultimately, the final image before the show went off the air was Gacy holding the NXT Title in the air.

A new video package aired for Wes Lee as he embarks on his singles journey.

Kay Lee Ray is now going by ‘Alba Fyre’. In her vignette, she described the name change as a ‘rebirth’.

NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose was in action against Roxanne Perez f.k.a. Rok-C and Rose defeated her. Post-match, Rose, Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne were sprayed with silly string by Roxanne and Wendy Choo.
