NXT Stand & Deliver 2022 was the second annual Stand & Deliver professional wrestling live event produced by WWE. It was held exclusively for wrestlers from the promotion's NXT brand division. The event aired on pay-per-view (PPV) worldwide and was available to stream through Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network internationally. It took place on April 2, 2022, at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas.

The event was held on the same day as WrestleMania 38 Night 1, and had a special start time of 1pm Eastern Time. Although this was the second Stand & Deliver, it was the first to not be held as an NXT TakeOver event, as that event series was discontinued when NXT became NXT 2.0 in September 2021, reverting to being WWE's developmental territory. This was the first NXT event to be held outside of Florida since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

Production

Background

In April 2021 during WrestleMania 37 week, WWE held a two-night NXT TakeOver event titled Stand & Deliver for the NXT brand. In September 2021, the NXT brand went through a restructuring, being rebranded as "NXT 2.0", reverting to a developmental territory for WWE. The NXT TakeOver series was subsequently discontinued.

On January 24, 2022, it was confirmed that Stand & Deliver would continue on as its own event for NXT with a second Stand & Deliver event announced to be held during WrestleMania 38 weekend, thus establishing Stand & Deliver as NXT's annual event held during WrestleMania week. This second Stand & Deliver was scheduled to be held at the American Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas, on April 2, 2022, the same day as WrestleMania 38 Night 1. Due to this, Stand & Deliver will have a special start time of 12pm Eastern Time. It will air on pay-per-view worldwide and will be available to stream through Peacock in the United States and the WWE Network internationally. This will be the first NXT event to be held outside of Florida since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.

Storylines

The card was comprised of matches that resulted from scripted storylines, where wrestlers portrayed heroes, villains, or less distinguishable characters that built tension and culminated in a wrestling match or series of matches. Results are predetermined by WWE's writers on the NXT brand, while storylines are produced on their weekly television program, NXT.

After retaining the NXT North American Championship on the March 1 episode of NXT 2.0, Carmelo Hayes announced that he would be defending the title in a ladder match at Stand & Deliver. Qualifying matches then began to determine the other participants in the match. Santos Escobar defeated Cameron Grimes on the March 15 episode to qualify first. While on commentary during the match, Hayes and Trick Williams announced two further qualifying matches which would take place on the March 22 episode, with Roderick Strong facing Solo Sikoa and A-Kid facing Grayson Waller.

On the March 15 episode of NXT, Tommaso Ciampa would come out to address the NXT Universe seemingly announcing his departure from NXT. Tony D'Angelo would then come out and challenge Ciampa to a match claiming he wants to be the next "Man/Don of NXT". Ciampa would then accept and shake hands before D'Angelo would attack Ciampa with a low blow.

After defeating MSK (Nash Carter and Wes Lee) to win the 2022 Dusty Rhodes tag team classic at NXT Vengeance Day, The Creed Brothers (Julius Creed and Brutus Creed) were granted an NXT Tag Team Championship match against champions Imperium (Fabian Aichner and Marcel Barthel) at NXT Roadblock, however, they were mysteriously attacked backstage. MSK would replace them in the tag title match, but the match would end in a disqualification when the Creed Brothers attacked both teams. On the March 15 episode of NXT, The Creed Brothers would demand who attacked them, MSK would come out claiming that they did not attack them, but they deserve a match for the tag team titles. Imperium interrupted and attacked both teams stating that they will defend the titles against both teams as the champions stated that they don't fear anyone. The match was later made official.

On the February 8 episode of NXT 2.0, Raw's Dolph Ziggler made his first-ever appearance in NXT during the NXT Championship match contract signing between champion Bron Breakker and Santos Escobar. Tommaso Ciampa also interrupted the segment and attacked Ziggler. On the March 8 episode titled NXT Roadblock, Ziggler, Ciampa, and Breakker competed in a triple threat match for the championship in which Ziggler won the title by pinning Ciampa. After retaining the title on the March 15 episode, Breakker came out and challenged Ziggler to a match at Stand & Deliver and Ziggler accepted.
