- Axiom is following Wes Lee around today to make sure he gets the open challenge.
- NXT Tag Team Championship Match: Gallus (c) defeated Pretty Deadly by pinfall to retain their titles.
- Fallon Henley and Josh Briggs investigated Kiana James’ office. Henley saw a contract for a tag team title qualifying match that will happen later on tonight.

- On Twitter, Shawn Michaels announced Roxanne Perez may have to vacate the NXT Women’s Championship. There will be a series of qualifying matches to determine competitors who will be in a ladder match at Stand & Deliver.
- Qualifying Match: Zoey Stark defeated Sol Ruca by pinfall.
- SCRYPTS has his eyes on one man, but his vignette didn’t give any more information than that.
- Stand & Deliver Tag Team Title Qualifying Match: Alba Fyre and Isla Dawn defeated Katana Chance & Kayden Carter and Ivy Nile & Tatum Paxley by pinfall. They’ll face James and Henley at Stand & Deliver.
- Backstage, Bron Breakker was approached by Tony D’Angelo and Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo. They offered up the idea that they could take out Carmelo Hayes for Breakker. Breakker toyed with them about doing something Sopranos-style, but turned it down. Tony then told Stacks that they should try to go for the tag team titles.
- Ilja Dragunov cut a promo in the ring about how he needs to rid himself of JD McDonagh in order to advance in his career. McDonagh came out to respond and trade some verbal barbs. Next week, they settle this, as far as Dragunov is concerned, but McDonagh is looking forward to continuing their song and dance of inflicting pain on each other. This broke out into a brawl that spilled into the parking lot.
- Backstage, Pretty Deadly spoke to McKenzie Mitchell about how they want to host Stand & Deliver.
- After the commercial break, Duke Hudson spoke to Andre Chase. Chase said that Chase University is where he found his purpose in life, and the same goes for Duke. This has transformed Hudson into someone who cares more than ever before about actually winning. Meanwhile, Ava Raine had been listening in, and she walked over to Hudson and leaves her mask next to him.
- Superstars brawled backstage in an attempt to get to the open challenge. Axiom got into the ring, but was attacked by Scrypts. JD McDonagh went in the ring next, but Ilja Dragunov fought with him to the outside. Wes Lee eventually flipped onto the big pack of wrestlers on the outside.

- Gargano got to his home and fought with Waller outside.
