Dakota Kai pinned Jessi Kamea in singles action after blasting her with the Go To Kick, then wasted no time calling out Shirai. The Genius of the Sky overwhelmed the No. 1 Contender initially until Raquel González emerged from the shadows to floor the champion with a massive boot to the face. The Captain of Team Kick and her enforcer stood tall, leaving Shirai in a heap days before their title match at NXT TakeOver: XXX.

"Swerve" finally got his hands on the NXT Cruiserweight Champion, overwhelming him with offense.

Legado del Fantasma took control, and Escobar planted Breeze with a Phantom Driver for the victory.

Flanked by former Super Bowl Champion A.J. Hawk and former Indianapolis Colts teammate Darius Butler, Pat McAfee met Adam Cole face-to-face in the ring days before their NXT TakeOver: XXX showdown. Unleashing a scorching diatribe, McAfee said he made the former NXT Champion look like an "amateur" when he nailed him with a devastating punt two weeks ago. After single-handedly dismantling the security keeping them separated, Cole didn't put his hands on McAfee, instead opting to wait for TakeOver. But he confidently promised he would "end" the former All-Pro punter on Saturday.

The Velveteen Dream def. Finn Bálor to qualify for the North American Title Ladder Match at NXT TakeOver: XXX

Bronson Reed emerges from a melee: WWE NXT, Aug. 19, 2020

Finn Bálor battles Velveteen Dream while all hell breaks loose between the North American Title Ladder Match competitors. Catch WWE action on WWE Network, FOX, USA Network, Sony India and more.

The field is set with Velveteen Dream earning the final spot in Saturday's North American Title Ladder Match, but His Purple Highness didn't get there without controversy. Cameron Grimes, another competitor in the Ladder Match, took it upon himself to grab a bird's eye seat on top of a ladder positioned at ringside. The rest of the field — Johnny Gargano, Bronson Reed and Damian Priest — soon joined him, and all hell quickly broke loose.

The biggest difference-maker in the brawl, however, was Timothy Thatcher. Thatcher ambushed Bálor, leaving him easy pickings for Dream, who planted him with a Dream Valley Driver and Purple Rainmaker elbow drop to steal the win. The chaos continued from there, and Reed stood tall over his fellow competitors when the dust cleared.
