It has been promoted for weeks that ‘Giovanni Vinci’ is coming to NXT 2.0 and it was revealed that the former ‘Fabian Aichner’ is now going by that name. He is appearing on next week’s show.

It is official that on 6/14, newly crowned NXT Tag Team Champions Julius and Brutus Creed are putting their titles on the line against Malik Blade and Edris Enofé.

Former WWE Intercontinental and United States Champion Apollo Crews is back in NXT. After his segment with NXT Champion Bron Breakker, Crews returned for the main event and teamed with Solo Sikoa to defeat Grayson Waller and North American Champion Carmelo Hayes. Crews pinned Waller for the win.

Legado Del Fantasma (Santos Escobar, Joaquin Wilde & Cruz Del Toro) fell in defeat to Tony D’Angelo, Channing ‘Stacks’ Lorenzo and Troy ‘Two Dimes’ Donovan. As a result, Legado had to join Tony’s group and on their first night ‘working’ for Tony, Escobar lost to Nathan Frazer in singles competition. He refused to use the crowbar that was slid into the ring for him.

The following bouts have been made official for the 6/14 show:

  • Wes Lee vs. Xyon Quinn
  • Joe Gacy’s Druids in action
  • Roxanne Perez, Indi Hartwell & Cora Jade vs. Toxic Attraction (Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne)

With an assist from Brooks Jenson, Josh Briggs defeated Von Wagner. It was Wagner’s fourth loss since the NXT 2.0 reboot and his first singles loss since December 2021.
