‘WWE NXT’ Review (Feb 6th 2024)

by Phil Wheat

Welcome to this week’s review of NXT, right here on Nerdly. Let’s get straight into it and see what went down in this episode…

Match #1: Axiom & Nathan Frazer def. Edris Enofé & Malik Blade

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Even though the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic has concluded, Axiom and Nathan Frazer are still teaming together and picked up a big win over Edris Enofé and Malik Blade. The action was fast and furious as all four Superstars showed off their incredible athleticism, punctuated by a Spanish Fly/Phoenix Splash combo from Axiom and Frazer. After Blade wiped out on the outside, Enofé was left all alone in the ring where Frazer hit another Phoenix Splash followed by a Golden Ratio from Axiom to give them the win.

My Score: 4 out of 5

Match #2: Lexis King def. Riley Osborne

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

After weeks of backstage confrontations, Riley Osborne and Lexis King finally squared off, but unfortunately for the Chase U star, the disrespectful King scored the win. Osborne was very impressive, and he looked poised to pick up the win with Mr. Chase and Duke Hudson in his corner, but one mistake opened the door for King. With King down, Osborne took just a little too long scaling the top rope, and it allowed his opponent to recover and hit Coronation to earn the win.

My Score: 2.5 out of 5

Match #3: Roxanne Perez def. Lola Vice

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Roxanne Perez exacted some payback on Lola Vice after they both came up short at Vengeance Day as The Prodigy scored a much-needed victory. Both Superstars were incredibly angry and unleashed a lot of pent-up rage on each other, but Perez was left standing thanks to an unexpected assist. Out of nowhere, Tatum Paxley ran to the ring and tried to cash in Vice’s Breakout Tournament contract, but since it wasn’t valid, it caused mass confusion. Vice proceeded to kick Paxley, but it left her wide open for a Pop Rox.

My Score: 3 out of 5

Match #4: Lash Legend & Jakara Jackson def. Fallon Henley & Wren Sinclair

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

Lash Legend and Jakara Jackson represented The Meta-Four proudly as they defeated Fallon Henley and Wren Sinclair in tag team action. Sinclair held her own against Legend and Jackson, but Henley was neutralized, leaving Sinclair to get hit with a Chokeslam/Powerbomb combo from Legend.

My Score: 2.5 out of 5

Match #5: Ilja Dragunov def. Dijak

The following is courtesy of wwe.com:

NXT Champion Ilja Dragunov may not have been defending his title, but he brought the same fire as he defeated his old rival Dijak in a heated matchup. The Mad Dragon was dealing with a nose injury suffered at Vengeance Day, and Dijak took full advantage by striking the champion’s face numerous times. Dijak was in control as Joe Gacy appeared from underneath the ring and struck him with a boxing glove. Despite the injury, Dragunov persevered and proved that he truly is unbesiegbar as he delivered an H-Bomb to a downed Dijak to secure his victory.

My Score: 3 out of 5

Final Verdict: 3/5

A better show than last week, this episode of NXT was a good follow-up to Vengeance Day with only a couple of dud matches letting the side down. The opener was easily the highlight of the show, with the Perez/Vice and main event closely following behind. Speaking of the main event, there was a nice bit of storytelling with Joe Gacy interfering and the appearance of Melo at the show’s close. Overall a solid show.
