The NXT 2.0 train continues to roll on in as it’s Tuesday, meaning it is time for more of the same. The show has been going through a heck of a transformation over the past number of months and last week was the first week in which Johnny Gargano and Kyle O’Reilly were no longer part of the roster. It not only felt to be that much more “new” but surely was missing something in terms of overall entertainment. This week will look to two of the black and gold generation as Dakota Kai will square off with Raquel Gonzalez in a Street Fight. We will also see the NXT 2.0 debut of AJ Styles. Here’s a look at the card.

Former Friends Turned Rivals Battle One More Time
After costing Raquel Gonzalez the NXT Women’s Championship, Dakota Kai has been looking to get her final payback in any way possible. The same, however, goes for Gonzalez, who is the one that made the challenge for a Street Fight last week. Kai has been a different person since making her return to the NXT brand, having some sort of voice going on in her head as she is not sure how to act. She even tried to help her opponent Cora Jade last week by telling her that Gonzalez will turn on her too. Interesting to see Kai try and help Jade, but it’s more likely she was trying to get in her head as well.
These two have had good chemistry the few times they locked horns. With a Street Fight in the mix, reminiscent of the first time they ever appeared together, it should be an all-out war. The future for both of them remains in question but that question could be answered depending on how badly these two beat the other up come Tuesday night.
