Kayden Carter & Katana Chance def. Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark – NXT Women’s Tag Team Title Match
Tag Team Title Tuesday starting off hot with Kayden Carter & Katana Chance looking to defend their championships against Nikkita Lyons & Zoey Stark. The challengers made the first statement with a simultaneous catch of the titleholders’ splashes and powered them both to the mat with slams. A new era appeared to begin for the NXT Women’s Tag Team division after Stark countered with a roll up on Chance that delivered a three-count. However, the official would sort out the situation and inform Alicia Taylor that a tag of Carter had been missed initially. Carter & Chance made the most of their second opportunity. Chance saved Carter from Lyons’ signature split pin which allowed the champions to fire up the Highlight Reel to retain the titles in a wild clash.

Pretty Deadly def. Edris Enofé & Malik Blade – NXT Tag Team Title Match
Edris Enofé & Malik Blade were out to shock the world, and the challengers nearly delivered right after the opening bell with a Blockbuster and Picture Perfect combo that was milliseconds away from the three-count. Pretty Deadly’s arrogance left them vulnerable at moments, as Blade went high-risk, high-reward to wipe out the champions outside the ring and nearly took out Prince with another splash. Blade was devastatingly close to another pin with a roll-up reversal, but Pretty Deadly converted on their second Spilt Milk attempt to retain the titles.

Indi Hartwell def. Sol Ruca
Indi Hartwell was out to keep her momentum going, and an early clothesline showed Sol Ruca she wasn’t messing around. A blindside from behind put Ruca face first into the mat and backed up Hartwell’s malicious intent with a statement victory. There wasn’t long for Hartwell to celebrate, as the return of Elektra Lopez led to a brutal assault on both Superstars.
JD McDonagh def. Ilja Dragunov
Both combatants entered their showdown battered and bruised from Saturday’s NXT Title Triple Threat Match at Halloween Havoc. JD McDonagh locked in on the clearly damaged ribs of Ilja Dragunov, as the Superstar required medical attention after his rival sent him flying directly into the announce table. Dragunov showed his unbelievable grit and fire with a thunderous suplex and diving elbow despite obviously battling through excruciating pain. After turning the tables, it was clear McDonagh’s sick mind was spinning and a sadistic hold left Dragunov bloodied and lifeless forcing the official to stop the match.
