Updates to the NXT Vengeance Day card

Feb 8, 2022 - by Marc Middleton

A stipulation has been added to the Steel Cage match between Pete Dunne and Tony D’Angelo at WWE NXT Vengeance Day.

Tonight’s Vengeance Day go-home edition of NXT 2.0 saw Dunne defeat Draco Anthony in singles action. Towards the end of the bout, D’Angelo tried to attack Dunne with a crowbar but it back-fired, and Dunne fought him off. Dunne ended up getting the win, and fighting off another sneak attack after the match. Dunne then went under the ring and brought out steel chairs, kendo sticks, a trash can, and a toolbox, and returned tot he ring with his cricket bat. Dunne warned D’Angelo that he will need more than a crowbar at Vengeance Day, and proposed that their match be changed to a Weaponized Steel Cage match with various weapons attached to the cage.

D’Angelo accepted the challenge and it was announced that this will now be a Weaponized Steel Cage Match.

On a related note, the finals of the 2022 NXT Men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic are now confirmed. Tonight’s NXT 2.0 on Syfy opened with The Creed Brothers defeating The Grizzled Young Veterans to advance to the finals at NXT Vengeance Day. MSK later defeated Edris Enofe and Malik Blade to advance.
