After weeks of vignettes, Axiom has arrived in NXT 2.0!
On the June 5th Great American Bash episode of NXT 2.0, a vignette showed a new character who appeared to be a math whiz and would go by the name Axiom. Last week, a second vignette for the character aired, showing him as a masked superhero, presumably one who uses mathematics to help in his quest for good. It was also revealed that Axiom would make his debut on July 19th.
Sure enough, the star – who formerly competed as A-Kid in NXT UK – made a splash on the latest episode of NXT 2.0, re-debuting against Dante Chen. The star’s entrance was a marvel to behold, showing an effect that looked like super speed.

Elsewhere on NXT 2.0, Cora Jade cut a scathing promo on her former best friend Roxanne Perez and said that their NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships meant nothing before throwing her belt in the trash.
Meanwhile, Joe Gacy revealed that two more former NXT UK stars were the men behind the mysterious cloaked members of the Dyad. Formerly known as Grizzled Young Veterans, they’ve been given new identities as part of their purification at the hands of Gacy.
In the main event of the show, Zoey Stark made her return from injury as a surprise entrant in a battle royal to determine the next contender to Mandy Rose’s NXT Women’s Championship. Stark went on to win the battle royal and will face Mandy Rose soon.
