Grayson Waller & Nikkita Lyons trended for different reasons

NXT 2.0 is for all you young people out in the world, with your TikTok and your trending topics. They even have a character who’s gimmick is an annoying influencer-type who’s always trying to go viral. That’s Grayson Waller, and his latest bid for 1.5 second of internet fame included an elbow drop onto the announce table that would make Shane O’Mac proud.

Waller would win his Last Man Standing match with LA Knight on the Mar. 7 Roadblock edition of NXT through legal-yet-underhanded means (assistance from his muscle Sanga, including being lifted to his feet by the big man despite Sanga being handcuffed to the ring post).

How does that have competition for the the night’s trendiest trend? Because NXT is tries very hard to be sexy now.

Nikkita Lyons looked great while rocking that outfit in a segment with Lash Legend (who also looked fantastic) where their trash talk included the lines, “What are you and those butt implants gonna do about it?” and “The only thing natural about you is that you’re full of shit!” Which might not be the best way to showcase a former WNBA player in Legend and a woman who’s impressed whenever we’ve seen her wrestling skills. But 2.0 gonna 2.0... and they did look good.
