NXT 2.0 has one week until their next major event New Year’s Evil and tensions are bubbling all over the brand. Tommaso Ciampa’s veteran mentality towards Bron Breakker has taken a turn with Breakker a week away from potentially taking the championship while NXT Women’s Champion Mandy Rose is welcoming all challengers. Most of that is next week’s news. This week will be headlined by the in-ring return of Brian Kendrick, who resigned as a WWE Performance Center coach to face Harland. Here’s a look at the WWE NXT 2.0 card.

Brian Kendrick Aims For Payback Following Attack By Harland
To think that in the young and reinvigorated world that is NXT 2.0 we would see someone like Brian Kendrick step back inside the squared circle would have been an absurd thought but here we are. The 42-year-old veteran is set to have his first match since Oct. 28, 2020, in hopes of getting payback against Harland, who laid down a hellacious attack on him following his in-ring debut. Kendrick stated last week that he has handed in his resignation as a member of the Performance Center coaching staff and will join the roster just to stand up for himself.
The difficulty for Kendrick comes from the uncertainty of Harland. The world has only seen Joe Gacy’s follower wrestle once and that one time so total destruction. Kendrick has faced a number of greats in his long career but stepping back in there over a year removed from in-ring action sure sounds like a risk. It should be interesting to see how this one goes.
