The Royal Rumble will also determine Roxanne Perez’s opponent on Revenge Day. Overall, it was a productive evening for the brand.
Check out five things WWE NXT New Year’s Evil got right this year.
#5. Dijak becomes Wes Lee’s next NXT North American Championship challenger
Diack WWE NXT North American Championship with Tony D’Angelo in the No. 1 Contender match. Wes Lee joined the commentary team when the two big men took to the ring.
Dijak took control early on and did some punishment on Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo as well. The latter tried to protect D’Angelo throughout the game, shifting the focus from the game to their relationship as a family.
Tony hit a spinebuster and nearly fell before Dijak exploded with a Superkick and Chokeslam. Stacks tries to help D’Angelo, but Don tells him to get out of the way and take care of his business.
The distraction allowed Dijak to hit the Cyclone Kill and win, becoming Lee’s next challenger. It was a good game and Diack got the spotlight he needed. It’s time for WWE to give him the recognition he deserves and hand him the North American Championship.
#4. Jinder Mahal joins Indus Sher to surprise Creed Brothers
creed brothers Played against Indus Sher but Sanga was absent from Veer. It looks like fans will see a handicap between the two sides at WWE NXT New Year’s Evil before the surprise appearance of the main roster Superstar.
Jinder Mahal Come out to attack Creed and send Julius into the ring post, then place him with Khallas. Sanga, meanwhile, led Brutus out and sent him up the steel steps.
Later that night, Mahal played a singles match against Julius Creed. Babyface took control early on, before Jinder hit him with the Spinebuster. Julius didn’t stay on the ground for long and nearly fell a few times.
Sanga distracts Julius and keeps Jinder from jumping off the rope. A distraction gave Mahal a powerful kick and Khallas took the win.
The former WWE Champion has been working aimlessly on the main roster for years. Adding to the NXT roster could be a good move for Jinder, especially if Veer hasn’t competed in a while. He works perfectly as a heel.
#3. Gallus returns to present Pretty Deadly at WWE NXT
very deadly Look for a spot in this week’s New Day’s WWE NXT Tag Team Championship match. They play a challenge game against three teams this week.
The first team turned out to be a few enhanced talents, and they were helpless against the former champions. After a few double-teams, Pretty Deadly took the win with Spilled Milk.
Edris Enofe and Malik Blade were the second team to face Pretty Deadly. The duo took on Elton Prince and Kit Wilson and came close to winning with the Spinebuster.
The blade hit the frog splash again before the two sides broke into a brawl. Prince rolled up his opponent and won from the inside cradle.
Gallus Return to WWE NXT and surprise the Heel Team. Mark Coffey was hard at work in Pretty Deadly before Wolfgang took over control. The two played with Wilson and Prince before hitting their finishers for a landslide victory.
Gallus’ return will strengthen the NXT tag team division. This faction is one of the best tag teams in the company. New Day might have a hard time keeping the title alive against Coffey and Co on Vengeance Day.
#2. Grayson Waller and Bron Breaker can’t bring their match to a decisive conclusion
Grasyon Waller challenged brown buster Compete in the WWE NXT Championship. Heel tried to flee the game early, but when he came back, he was hit with a slam and a stand-up moonshot.
The Australian superstar made a comeback and hit the suplex, but the Bron was too strong for him. The two superstars swapped moves before the champion was sent into the turnbuckle. One of the clasps broke and officials had to fix it.
Once the action started again, Waller went on the attack and dodged the spear before hitting a big knee strike. He tried to free himself from the rope, but the turnbuckle snapped again, throwing Waller outside.
The challenger was eliminated due to his inability to return to the ring, while Breaker retained his title.Later that night, Sean Michaels announced that the two superstars would meet again on Revenge Day for the title, this time steel cage.
The match itself was fine, WWE found a different way to end the match while protecting both Superstars. This will keep Breaker busy for a while, as he has had a number of challengers over the past four months.
#1. Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne challenge Roxanne Perez for NXT Women’s Championship
With the 20 women’s battle royale taking off in the main event, the entire women’s roster has its sights set on the NXT Women’s Championship. Cora jade Tatum Paxley left the ring before he was eliminated.
The ring was quickly emptied as Lash Legend eliminated Amari Miller. Sol Ruca saved himself from elimination and returned to the field by walking on both hands.
Jade returned to the ring before being sent out almost immediately. Fans were surprised when Wendy Choo, Nikkita Lyons and Zoey Stark were also eliminated.
Alba Fyre, Lyra Valkyria, Jacy Jayne and Gigi Dolin are the final four players. Valkyria kills Fyre before Cora Jade returns to kill her.
Jayne and Dolin were the last two in the ring, battling each other to determine who would face Perez. They fought off the tarmac and went down at the same time, confusing the referees.Finally, they were both announced as the winner of the competition.
This game is good because it has some interesting bits. It also created some new competition. However, the ending could have been much better, as both women could have jumped out of the ring at the same time to show that it was all part of their plan.
Perez and his game toxic attraction Will be fine, because the champion will have to face two heels who have been working together for months. A win would help Perez get a huge boost.
