On Tuesday’s episode of WWE NXT, Tiffany Stratton challenged Fallon Henley to a match at NXT New Year’s Evil.

Tuesday’s show kicked off with Stratton and Henley competing in a singles contest. Henley scored the victory with a roll-up pinfall. Enraged by the loss, Stratton assaulted Henley and dragged her backstage where she dumped the contents of a trash can onto her rival.

Later during the show, Stratton cut a promo in which she declared that Henley had finally been put in her place, and that she would always be trash no matter what.

Stratton then challenged Henley to a match at the January 2nd show, stipulating that if Stratton won, Henley would become her servant.

Henley has yet to respond to Stratton’s challenge.

You can check out some highlights from the promo below:

Dragon Lee received some help on Tuesday’s episode of WWE NXT, as Joaquin Wilde & Cruz Del Toro returned to save the NXT North American Champion from an ambush.

Lee successfully defended the NXT North American Title against Joe Gacy and Charlie Dempsey in a Triple Threat match.

Following the win, Lee was attacked by the No Quarter Catch Crew until Wilde and Del Toro made the save.

The three babyfaces sent the four heels packing and celebrated in the ring together.

And finally, Ilja Dragunov was stretchered out of the arena following an “injury” on WWE NXT.

Tuesday’s show saw Ridge Holland make his return to NXT, interrupting a promo by Dragunov and challenging him to a non-title match.

During the main event, Holland delivered a move that dropped the NXT Champion on his head, leaving him seemingly paralyzed.

Dragunov was quickly stretchered out as Holland looked on in anguish.

For those wondering, this is all a work. The angle is playing off of Holland’s notoriety for the broken neck that Big E suffered when he wrestled the British Superstar on a March 2022 episode of SmackDown.
