NXT 2.0 Recap 8/30: Worlds Collide Brings WWE Invasion This Week

This Sunday night's NXT Worlds Collide event on Peacock was built on the promise of the NXT UK brand facing the stars of NXT 2.0, in some cases unifying the corresponding titles from the two brands.  But something we weren't anticipating was that the stars of Raw and SmackDown would get involved with the event and as it turns out after last night's NXT 2.0 on the USA Network, that's just what is happening.  Let's take a look at what went down.

Ricochet and other main roster stars made their presence felt on last night's NXT 2.0, courtesy of WWE.

While we saw quite a few stars from Raw and SmackDown show up on last night's NXT 2.0, none had a larger impact than Ricochet.  As North American Champion Carmelo Hayes was voicing his displeasure at being left off of the NXT Worlds Collide card and chalking it up to not having a worthy opponent, the former Intercontinental Champion made his way to the ring and laid down a challenge against Hayes for his title on Sunday night.  Ricochet then fought off attacks from Hayes and Trick Williams, letting them know he's serious about once again becoming North American Champion.

And that's that for this week's episode of NXT 2.0.  It was a pretty solid one, beginning to end with good action, and they did a nice job both filling out the card for Worlds Collide and making the upcoming event feel really important by bringing in main roster stars here.  Here's hoping the show on Sunday can live up to it!

Till next time friends.
