WWE NXT 2.0 – Episode 490 (01.18.2022) (Wrestling Review)


Orlando, Florida

Jan. 18th, 2022


Singles Match
Dexter Lumis vs. Grayson Waller

 A decent opener with a lame finish. Some good back and forth but it was really hard here to just care for anything going on. 

2 / 5

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic 2022 First Round Match
Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs vs. The Creed Brothers (Brutus Creed & Julius Creed) (w/Malcolm Bivens)

A match that had its moments but lost its pacing throughout. Some good moves though but some came off looking sloppy. The good moments worked though but I have to say the finisher either looked off or just comes off looking bad as a team move. 

2.5 / 5

Singles Match
Guru Raaj vs. Dante Chen

Not even a match as a run in happens a minute in. 

.5 / 5

Singles Match
Kay Lee Ray vs. Ivy Nile (w/Malcolm Bivens)

Actually a pretty solid match. I really enjoyed the leg DDT move as well. A cheaper finish though knocked it down into a weak finish. 

3 / 5

Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic 2022 First Round Match
Edris Enofe & Malik Blade vs. Legado del Fantasma (Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza) (w/Elektra Lopez & Santos Escobar)

Another interference match and 2nd match in a row to end with a roll up from the interference. Different team won than expected but this wasn’t a good match really. 

1.5 / 5

Singles Match
Dakota Kai vs. Yulisa Leon (w/Valentina Feroz)

Attempt to build up Kai but this 4 minute match does nothing to help that. 

1 / 5

Singles Match
Roderick Strong (w/Malcolm Bivens) vs. WALTER

No shocker these two put on a good match. Great back and forth between the two with both men having close calls. Hard slaps as expected from a Walter match and good finish to end the show. 

3.5 / 5
