  • Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams defeated Charlie Dempsey and Drew Gulak by pinfall. Bron Breakker appeared on the TitanTron with footage of him at CutWiz to taunt Hayes and Williams.
  • Backstage, Lash Legend and Jakara Jackson complained to Noam Dar that all these talk shows are worthless and Lashin’ Out with Lash Legend should make a return.
  • Kiana James defeated Thea Hail by pinfall.
  • Wes Lee cut a promo about how Schism’s attack has led to Lee’s match with Bate being cancelled. If Joe Gacy wanted a title shot, all he had to do was ask. Gacy and Ava popped up so Gacy could officially ask for a title shot at NXT Battleground and to say that Tyler Bate’s been deceiving Wes Lee. This prompted Bate to come out, say he has a receipt for Gacy, and that he also wants a shot at the title. Lee was upset that Bate didn’t just say something before, to which Bate said he wouldn’t let that belt get in the way of their friendship. Naturally, we’re getting a Triple Threat match.
  • NXT Women’s Championship Tournament: Roxanne Perez defeated Jacy Jayne by pinfall.
  • Gigi Dolin attacked Jacy Jayne after the match. Then, Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams came out to call out Bron Breakker, who came out with security “for them”, rather than for himself. After some trash talking, a fight erupted, which saw Hayes and Breakker both laid out in the ring to end the show.
