Nikkita Lyons Was Surprised Her WWE NXT 2.0 Pinfall Went Viral



As seen during the February 22nd episode of WWE NXT 2.0, Nikkita Lyons made her official debut and picked up a win over Kayla Inlay. The finish came when Lyons hit a spin kick on Inlay and then did a split legdrop for the 1, 2, 3.

A photo of Lyons making the pin would later go viral on Twitter and that surprised her.

During a recent appearance on WWE Espanol, Lyons said,

“I was still, ‘did that just happen?. I didn’t look at my phone until I got home. I was fortunate to have my parents there, my man, a bunch of friends came. I was super grateful and keeping that in mind that people close to me came to support me. That means a lot.

“After, I talked to my coaches and got all that going. People in the back were telling me great job. I just kind of sat there and continued to watch the show. I didn’t get out of my gear until the show was over. ‘I don’t even want to go to the locker room, I want to bask in this moment.’ It was beautiful. When I got on social media, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh.’ I was not expecting this reaction. A lot of people thought the finish was the split, but technically the finish was the tornado kick, the split was how I pinned her. That’s part of it and that’s what went viral. I was so surprised by that.”

For what it’s worth, Lyons will be appearing in a “Lashing Out with Lash Legend” segment on next week’s episode of WWE NXT 2.0.
