WWE NXT results: April 26, 2022
Nikkita Lyons def. Lash Legend
It was another clash of the titans as Lash Legend looked to prove Nikkita Lyons' earlier victory was nothing more than a fluke, going right after Lyons before the bell could even ring. The two Superstars traded strikes in the center of the ring before Lyons took control with a Lou Thesz Press Takedown. Legend bucked Lyons out of the ring and tossed her into the steel steps, pummeling Lyons before delivering a sidewalk slam for a nearfall. Lyons battled back with a pair of suplexes, reversing a powerbomb attempt into a huricanrana before catching Legend with a spinning roundhouse kick for the pinfall.
Before Lyons could even stand up, Natalya slid into the ring and attacked Lyons, pummeling her with right hands as Legend began to join the fray. After a series of kicks, Cora Jade flew into action to save Lyons, using her skateboard to knock Legend out of the ring before Lyons bounced Natalya to the floor.
Von Wagner def. Tony D’Angelo
After Xyon Quinn was ruled medically ineligible to compete hours before the show, Mr. Stone stepped in to bring his client Von Wagner's suspension to an early end in order to fill in as Tony D'Angelo's opponent. The towering Wagner made the most out of his return match, knocking the new "Don of NXT" off his feet with a clothesline.
D'Angelo refused to back down eventually knocking Wagner over the ropes, but when he went to keep the mammoth down, D'Angelo paid the price as Wagner dropped him onto the apron. The two Superstars continued to toss each other around the ring, trading right hands until Wagner dumped D'Angelo to the outside floor.
As D'Angelo tried to climb back into the ring, Cruz Del Toro & Joaquin Wilde made their way down the entrance ramp until they were cut off by two men in suits, later revealed to be D'Angelo's associates Troy Donovan & Channing Lorenzo. As the referee tried to stop a potential melee, Santos Escobar flew in to drop D'Angelo with a crowbar to the back of the leg. After barely beating the count, D'Angelo rolled right into a big boot from Wagner to give the giant a return victory.
Nathan Frazer wiped out Grayson Waller
NXT UK Superstar Nathan Frazer was set to make his NXT 2.0 debut against Guru Raaj, but before the bell rang Grayson Waller sent Raaj flying into the announce table. Waller then verbally cut down Frazer and the entire Chase University section in attendance, including Andre Chase & Bodhi Hayward. Done with Waller's attitude, Frazer springboarded into the ring and pummeled Waller, knocking him outside the ring with a dropkick before flattening "The Arrogant Aussie" with a dive through the ropes and laughing at Waller's misfortune with Chase & Hayward inside the ring.
Katana Chance & Kayden Carter def. Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz
The two high-flying, high-octane tag teams of Katana Chance & Kayden Carter and Yulisa Leon & Valentina Feroz stunned and thrilled the NXT Universe in attendance trading unique acrobatic moves. As Chance & Carter isolated Feroz, she battled out to tag in Leon who dropped Carter with a massive missile dropkick off the top rope before dropping Feroz onto Carter for a nearfall. After a missed moonsault off the ropes by Leon, Feroz failed to see Chance tag herself in, running into a right hand before being flattened by a 450 Splash by Chance for the pinfall.
Legado del Fantasma def. Josh Briggs & Fallon Henley in 3-on-2 Match
After a backstage attack from Von Wagner moments before their Six-Person Tag Team Match left Brooks Jensen unable to compete, Josh Briggs & Fallon Henley charged into the fray to buck the 3-on-2 odds against Legado del Fantasma.
Briggs & Henley tried to level the playing field by wiping out the trio before the opening bell. The fired up pair stunned Legado del Fantasma with a pair of massive right hands as Cruz Del Toro & Elektra Lopez were hung up in the ropes. After Briggs caught Del Toro flying into the ring, Joaquin Wilde seized his moment and took the legs out from underneath Briggs. As the numbers caught up to Briggs, Lopez was tagged in and Henley went right after her, raining down blows on La Madrina as the two fought to the ring floor and into the backstage area. With Briggs on his own, Del Toro sent him flying with a dropkick before Wilde set Briggs up for Legado del Fantasma's tandem flying scissor kick and leg sweep for the win.
Solo Sikoa def. Trick Williams
Looking for retribution after Trick Williams interfered in his North American Title Match, Solo Sikoa went after Carmelo Hayes' right hand man with a body slam. Williams showed that he is more than mouthpiece, targeting Sikoa's injured shoulder and dropping "The Street Champion of the Island" with a picture perfect dropkick and swinging neckbreaker. Sikoa was not stunned for long, firing up to deliver a thunderous Samoan Drop before climbing to the top rope to deliver a massive splash for the pinfall.
The Viking Raiders def. Malik Blade & Edris Enofé
Back on NXT for the first time in nearly three years, The Viking Raiders locked horns with rising tag team Malik Blade & Edris Enofé. The former NXT Tag Team Champions showed the upstarts a thing or two with a series of massive elbows and a pop up knee to Enofé for a two-count. After Enofé escaped to tag in his partner, Blade returned the lesson with a stunning dropkick before a double crossbody finally took Ivar off his feet. The duo tried to keep the momentum rolling, but could not compete against the sheer power and size of the Viking Raiders as Ivar flattened both Blade & Enofé before he and Erik tandem powerbombed Blade to secure the pinfall victory.
Afterwards The Viking Raiders shook Blade & Enofé's hands before their future NXT Spring Breakin' opponents, The Creed Brothers, came out to size up their competition.
Mandy Rose def. Roxanne Perez
Determined to show rookie Roxanne Perez what a Champion looks like and that her win over Jacy Jayne was nothing more than a fluke, Mandy Rose welcomed the up-and-comer to NXT 2.0 by shoving her into a turnbuckle. After a series of pin attempts, Perez put an end to the NXT Women's Champion's smack talk by biting her finger and smashing her digit into the steel steps.
An incensed Rose turned the tables with a fierce backbreaker before slingshotting Perez into the ropes. Rose continued to control the match until Perez flattened her off the top rope, raining down right hands before hitting a backflip splash for a nearfall. As Perez kept her foot on the gas, Rose popped up out of a nearfall and caught her with a running knee for the 1-2-3.
While Toxic Attraction celebrated, Wendy Choo once again appeared out of nowhere with a pair of supersoakers, but this time Toxic Attraction rolled out of the ring before being drenched. But Choo was prepared, pulling a big red button out of her pocket and dropping a net onto Gigi Dolin, Jayne, and Rose. As Toxic Attraction struggled with the trap, Choo and Perez covered the three Superstars in silly string.
Bron Breakker is overwhelmed trying to get his hands on Joe Gacy
Surrounded by hooded figures, Joe Gacy spoke of how he has slowly molded NXT 2.0 towards his vision, but the work was not done and any Superstar who would not commit to his future will have no choice but to agree after he won the NXT Title at NXT Spring Breakin'. Gacy went on to say he would be crowned as the new NXT Champion since Bron Breakker was not cleared to compete after his "fall from grace."
Rick Steiner then stepped out to correct Gacy and inform him that Breakker was cleared to defend his title. As Gacy smiled and sicced his hooded figures on Steiner, Breakker stormed out to defend his father, fighting his way through the overwhelming numbers to make his way into the ring. As he got close, Gacy slipped out of the way and knocked Breakker out with his springboard clothesline before Gacy's disciples passed the NXT Title up to him, rasing it high above a fallen Breakker.
