Nikki Cross def. Reckoning
Have I mentioned before how much I think Cross' new entrance music sucks? It's such a downgrade from her old entrance theme. On the bright side, this was another quality contest from these two. Reckoning beat Cross last week, but Cross was able to avenge the loss here. This was a bit more hard-hitting and physical than their previous encounter. Mustafa Ali looked disappointed following Reckoning's loss, but we'll see if it leads anywhere or if it will be dropped like Reckoning calling out Raw Women's Champion Asuka.
WWE NXT Review - December 30, 2020
Bronson Reed def. Isiah "Swerve" Scott
I'm really digging this new heel character Scott has been doing lately and I'm glad Reed is getting back on tract following a long layoff. That said, these guys should not have faced each other because neither of them should have lost. Scott won't be too damaged by the defeat, but he shouldn't have lost decisively so soon after avenging his loss to Jake Atlas. On the bright side, this was a terrific showcase for two of NXT's most promising prospects.
Colt Cabana and AEW World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks def. Matt Hardy and Private Party
First and foremost, the 10-bell salute that opened the show for Brodie Lee was wonderful. It was honestly hard to not shed a tear while watching it, especially when the wife and kids were shown front and center. As for the match, I figured most storylines would be on pause with this being a tribute show and they were to an extend, but Hardy still showed some subtle heel tendencies down the stretch. This was an entertaining opener and it was nice to see Cabana spotlighted for a change.
