WWE NXT 2.0 Results: Winners, Grades, Reaction And Highlights From December 7

Io Shirai and Kay Lee Ray confronted Raquel Gonzalez and Cora Jade, with both wanting the next title shot. Mandy Rose changed the match for the night, pitting the four women against each other to determine which two women would challenge the NXT women's champion at New Year's Evil.

Jade found herself in trouble against the veterans on the other side of this match. KLR trapped her in a single-leg Boston crab then tried to transition into the KLR Bomb. Jade barely escaped, and Gonzalez managed to pull her partner to safety.

Ray took out Gonzalez with a suicide dive, then Shirai hit a missile dropkick on Jade for a nearfall. Jade ducked the double knee strike in the corner then hit Ray with an enzuigiri to get the hot tag to Gonzalez.

Gonzalez hit KLR with the Chingona Bomb, but Jade took the blind tag. As Gonzalez and Jade argued, Jade rolled up Ray for three. The two winners argued about the finish as Rose mocked them from the titantron.

Analysis

While it was a shame for Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne to miss a main event, this was definitely the more interesting match to sell the night. It had plenty on the line, and four of the best made clear how much it meant to them.

Given the chemistry on display, it might be worth considering making these more permanent tag teams. The NXT women's division could use them both. Jade is a fine replacement for Dakota Kai as Gonzalez's smaller partner, and Shirai and KLR are firecrackers together.

Jade and Gonzalez needed to win as the more interesting immediate challengers to Rose. Shirai and KLR should also get title shots before Rose loses the gold.
