Duke Hudson and Cameron Grimes's Poker Showdown on NXT 2.0

Duke Hudson and Cameron Grimes were set for their Poker Showdown and Duke said that luck was for losers like Grimes. Cameron fired back and said that Duke was sweating after the last time they played.

The game was started and Grimes had no idea how bad his cards were with a King and 3 and Duke had a pair of 5's. Cameron and Duke tried out-betting each other but neither one backed out before all five cards were revealed.

Duke was not happy with the river and Grimes and the crowd taunted him into making him fold. Grimes revealed his cards and Duke saw he had nothing before Grimes sang 'you got played' over and over.

Raquel Gonzalez vs. Dakota Kai on NXT 2.0

Gonzalez unloaded on Kai as the match started and tossed her around like a ragdoll before Dakota fled the ring. Raquel dropped Kai on the floor outside before smashing her head into the apron and dropping her onto it.

Kai somehow smiled through the beating while Gonzalez was enraged as she punished her former friend in the ring. Kai managed to get a big kick in and sent Gonzalez outside before we headed for a break.

Back on NXT 2.0, Dakota was in control and got a near fall before countering the Chingona Bomb. A turnbuckle was exposed by Kai earlier and Gonzalez took it to the jaw before Kai got her shovel.
