- El Hijo del Fantasma defeated Akira Tozawa by pinfall to advance to the finals of the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament.
- Timothy Thatcher challenged Matt Riddle to a rematch with no pinfalls—you can only win by knockout or tap out. Riddle later accepted the challenge and posed the idea it should happen in a cage.
- In a video package, Shotzi Blackheart talked about her personality, how she named her tank The Dirty Blonde and what she’s going to do to the NXT women’s division.
- Mia Yim defeated Santana Garrett by pinfall. Post-match, Johnny Gargano and Candice LeRae came out to talk some trash and attack her. Keith Lee came out to help even the odds and run them off.
- Roderick Strong defeated Dexter Lumis by pinfall. Lumis then attacked Strong after the match, locking in his submission. Bobby Fish and Adam Cole came out to try to stop him, but Velveteen Dream went after them. Dream and Lumis won the fight.
- In the parking lot during the break, Akira Tozawa congratulated El Hijo del Fantasma on his win. Tozawa was then attacked by the two masked men until Fantasma chased them off.
- Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch defeated Ever-Rise by submission.
- Keith Lee has a feeling this issue with the Garganos is going to come to a head at TakeOver.
- Drake Maverick defeated Kushida by pinfall in their Interim NXT Cruiserweight Championship Tournament Match. Maverick, Kushida and Jake Atlas are now tied 2-1 and will have to face off next week in a Triple Threat to determine the leader of Group A who will face Fantasma in the finals.
- Riddle vs. Thatcher will happen next week.
- Damian Priest challenged Finn Balor to a match for TakeOver.
- Charlotte Flair interfered during the Rhea Ripley vs. Io Shirai match and attacked both. Shirai either won by disqualification (as she was struck first) or it was ruled a no-contest.
