On Saturday, the events of the biggest WWE NXT 2.0 Pay-Per-View (PPV), Stand & Deliver, took place, a few hours before the kick-off of the tremendous, Wrestle Mania 38 Night 1.

All NXT 2.0 show's titles were on the line, including the NXT title, and NXT Women's title, on the other hand, the show saw several interesting single contests.

The show overall received huge support and praise from the fans, especially the North America title, and the single match between LA Knight, and Gunther.

I-The Kick-off

(NXT Women's Tag Team Championships)

The kick-off show contained one contest between Toxic Attraction and Raquel Gonzales and Dakota Kay who won second place in Dusty Rhodes Tag TeamCup Classic for the NXT Women's Tag Team titles.

The match can be good warming up for the well-planned and heavily booked Stand & Deliver card, and it witnessed new champions: Gonzales and Kay.

Rate: 2.75/5

II-Main Show

A- Championship Contests

1-The Ladders Match for the NXT North America Title

It was one of the best matches of the season, and every one of the five participants: Cameron Grimes, Carmelo Hayes, Solo Sikoa, Santos Escobar, and Grayson Waller, received a good time representing themselves in the ring, and in the match, and the five created an enjoyable performance in the ring full of action and ladder-based moves.

Cameron Grimes succeeded to capture the title to be the new champion.

Rate: 4.75

2-Triple Threat Match for the NXT Tag Team Titles 

Three of the best tag teams in the whole promotion: MSA, The Imperium, and The Creed Brothers stood together in the same ring in a contest for the NXT Tag Team titles.

It was one of the best matches of the night, and the style wandered between the essence of technical wrestling and the magic of high flying and acrobatic style.

MSK deserved this win after the impressive runs they did until now in the promotion.

Rate: 3.5/5

3-NXT Women's Title

The worst match in the whole show, and there were several mistakes in the entrances, especially for Cora Jade one. The four stars didn't deliver what was expected of them, in addition, the result of the match was not satisfying as Mandy Rose defeated Cora Jade, Io Shirai, and Kay Lee Ray by pinfall, and retained her title.

Rate: 2/5

4-NXT Title

There is no doubt that Dolph Ziggler is doing an outstanding job at the NXT 2.0 pision despite being part of the WWE's main roaster.

The contest between him and Bron Breaker was somehow disappointing and lower than what was expected from their feud that took place between Monday Night Raw, and NXT 2.0.

In the end, Ziggler succeeded to retain his title, despite being expected that Breaker would get his title back.

B- Single Contests 

Tomas Ciampa vs Tony D'Angelo 

This match was strong and full of power and tributes by Ciampa to the HBK Shawn Michaels and the Game Triple H who announced his in-ring competition retirement a few days ago.

Ciampa hinted that his run at the NXT 2.0 show will be concluded at Stand & Deliver.

The most unforgettable scene at that match was Tripe H's appearance at the show, greeting and supporting Ciampa after losing the match.

The appearance of the Game satisfied a lot of fans around the world due to the timing of his on-screen appearance.

Rate: 3.5/5

LA Knight vs Gunther

It was also one of the well-written matches, and the fight between LA Knight, and Gunther was highly anticipated by the fans.

The style of the match was super classic, technical, catch game match which satisfied real and classic pro wrestling fans.

The victory of Gunther was necessary to improve the actions more.

Rate: 4/5

III-Conclusion

Being part of WWE Wrestle Mania 38 week supported the event well, in addition, it gave the scriptwriters and the creative teams to widen the horizons of their minds so the audience could see a well-written and performed NXT 2.0 PPV.

The majority of the matches and promos except for a few segments and matches it was so impressive for the fans.

The NA Ladders match was the most praised and mentioned match by the fans on social media, and the appearance of Triple H was the moment of the show.
