  • Karrion Kross cut a promo about how people should expect casualties on both sides when they go to war. He did what he said he would do by taking the NXT Championship from Keith Lee, but his separated shoulder has forced him to relinquish the title.
  • NXT Tag Team Championship Match: Breezango defeated Imperium (c) by pinfall to become the new champions!
  • Timothy Thatcher picked a fight with Damian Priest backstage.
  • Tommaso Ciampa defeated Jake Atlas by pinfall in a squash.
  • Bronson Reed spoke about how he’s beaten Damian Priest, so he thinks he’s actually the next deserving of a shot. Austin Theory then popped up and said maybe by the time Reed is 55, he’ll be champion. Reed slapped him in the face.
  • Mia Yim was supposed to face Mercedes Martinez, but Robert Stone came out to say he wouldn’t let her wrestle after what Rhea Ripley did last week. Shotzi Blackheart then once again ran over Stone and decided to take Martinez’s place against Yim.
  • Shotzi Blackheart defeated Mia Yim by pinfall.
  • William Regal announced the NXT advisory board has come to a decision about the next champion. Next week, there will be a Fatal 4-Way to crown the new champion. The participants are Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Finn Balor and Adam Cole. This will be an Iron Man Match, too. This is going to be Tuesday night, not Wednesday night.
  • NXT Cruiserweight Championship Match: Santos Escobar (c) retained the title over Isaiah “Swerve” Scott by pinfall after headbutting him while wearing a seemingly loaded luchador mask
  • Kyle O’Reilly defeated Drake Maverick by submission. Killian Dain made the save for a post-match beat down and ran off Roderick Strong, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly. Then, Maverick walked over to Dain, only for Dain to knock him down.
  • Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez defeated Io Shirai and Rhea Ripley by pinfall.
