- Tommaso Ciampa defeated Grayson Waller by pinfall.
- Backstage, an interview with Joe Gacy was interrupted by LA Knight.
- Backstage, Toxic Attraction and Dakota Kai talked some trash about Cora Jade and company. They came across a bunch of broken glass and when they walked off, Kay Lee Ray was shown with a baseball bat having been the one to break everything.
- Cameron Grimes cut a promo about how he’s shown his doubters that he’s good enough. He then was interrupted by Duke Hudson. Grimes challenged Hudson to a Hair vs Hair match at WarGames. Hudson accepted.
- Vignette: Tiffany Stratton—a spoiled brat blonde girl playing tennis and talking about how rich and entitled she is—is coming soon because “Daddy said [she’s] ready to take over NXT.”
- Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter defeated Indi Hartwell and Persia Pirotta by pinfall.
- Andre Chase made fun of Cameron Grimes backstage, but Grimes just brushed him off.
- Santos Escobar defeated Malik Blade by pinfall. Legado del Fantasma spoke about Xyon Quinn after the match and how the team is back at full strength. Kyle O’Reilly and Von Wagner interrupted to say they want the tag titles and that Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza didn’t really beat them. Imperium then popped up to belittle both teams and speak on how they’ll stay champions no matter who they fight at WarGames.
- Tony D’Angelo has his money on Carmelo Hayes and thinks Pete Dunne stands no chance at winning the title match tonight.
- Cora Jade defeated Mandy Rose by pinfall.
- LA Knight vs Joe Gacy didn’t happen as Grayson Waller jumped Knight on the ramp. Gacy then cut a promo and was interrupted by Diamond Mine. It will be Gacy vs. Roderick Strong for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship at WarGames (despite how Gacy is 245 lbs)
- MSK had another part of their journey to meeting the shaman. This time, they were pulled over by a cop not for speeding, but for going only 7 miles per hour. They were let go with just a warning, though.
- Ivy Nile defeated Yulisa Leon by submission
- Vignette: Boa was spotlighted.
- Brooks Jensen and Josh Briggs defeated Grizzled Young Veterans by pinfall.
- Kay Lee Ray is officially the fourth member of the opposition for Toxic Attraction and Dakota Kai at WarGames.
- North American Championship Triple Threat Match: Carmelo Hayes (c) defeated Johnny Gargano and Pete Dunne by pinfall to retain the title due in part to Tony D’Angelo costing Dunne a pinfall. Waller and Knight brawled out after the match. Ciampa came out to help. Bron Breakker then joined the heel group and shouted WarGames to set up another brawl to end the night. It appears the WarGames teams are Breakker, D’Angelo, Hayes and Waller (no Trick Williams) seemingly against Knight, Dunne, Gargano and Ciampa.
