Malcolm Bivens had every reason to smile on the premiere of NXT 2.0 as he unveiled Ivy Nile as the first female member of his Diamond Mine faction.
NXT 2.0 saw a lot of new faces debut on NXT television as the new era of the former black and gold brand began. Bron Breakker – formerly known as Bronson Rechsteiner – made his debut as he upset LA Knight before Knight was due to fight for the NXT Championship.
B-Fab of Hit Row was in action, handily putting away Katrina Cortez in no time at all. She and the rest of Hit Row were confronted by Legado Del Fantasma afterward as Elektra Lopez let B-Fab know she’d be coming for her.
Tommaso Ciampa reclaimed Goldie as he won his second NXT Championship in a Fatal Fourway Match that included Pete Dunne and LA Knight. Kyle O’Reilly was supposed to take part in the match but was attacked by Dunne and Ridge Holland beforehand, this led to General Manager William Regal naming Von Wagner as the fourth entrant in the match.
The night was capped off with the wedding of InDex and Dexter Lumis and Indi Hartwell said their “I do’s” in front of a packed ring of their NXT peers. Nobody came forward to give any reason as to why the two couldn’t be joined in matrimony but this may have had something to do with the axe that Lumis had concealed in his suit jacket. In possibly the biggest upset in wrestling history, the wedding went off relatively without a hitch and the two were married by WWE Hall Of Famer Beth Phoenix.
In the middle of all that action Diamond Mine members, the Creed Brothers were in tag team action and gained an impressive victory.
Afterward, Malcolm Bivens introduced the world to Diamond Mine’s first female star, Ivy Nile. Nile is the real-life Emily Andzulis who competed on NBC’s Titan Games that was hosted by Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.
Ivy Nile briefly appeared on RAW as part of the short-lived RAW Underground segments, facing off with former NXT Women’s Champion, Shayna Baszler.
