Cameron Grimes def. Carmelo Hayes & Solo Sikoa to retain the NXT North American Title
Cameron Grimes' rocket to the moon hit some bumps in a thrilling Triple Threat showdown with Carmelo Hayes and Solo Sikoa, but "The Richest Man in NXT" battled through the turbulence to retain his NXT North American Championship.
After running his mouth early, Hayes paid the price in the form of a 2-on-1 beatdown by Grimes and Sikoa, but the alliance did not last long as the two duked it out while keeping the former "A Champion" at bay outside the ring. Once Hayes found his way back in the ring, the three Superstars threw everything they had at one another in a fast and furious few minutes that saw neither one gain the advantage for long.
The exhausted trio traded blows in the center of the ring after flattening each other with a tandem superplex and powerbomb off the top rope. Sikoa decimated his two opponents with a massive splash in the corner, powerbombing Hayes onto Grimes and hitting a monstrous Uranage for a nearfall broken up by Grimes. Sikoa climbed to the top rope for a splash, but Grimes caught him with a kick before delivering a poisonrana to Hayes to kick off a flurry of jaw-dropping nearfalls. As Sikoa hoisted up Hayes for a Samoan Drop, Grimes flew in from out of nowhere for a top rope Cave-In to pin The Street Champion and retain his North American Title.
Nathan Frazer def. Grayson Waller
After Grayson Waller ruined Nathan Frazer's initial NXT 2.0 debut, The NXT UK Superstar flew into action to shut "The Arrogant Aussie" up. Frazer showed Waller, and the NXT Universe, what he was capable of with a picture perfect dropkick before utilizing his speed and unique offense to keep Waller on his heels.
Waller found his footing after dropping Frazer onto the ropes as he attempted to springboard back into the ring, leveling the NXT 2.0 rookie with a huge clothesline on the arena floor. As Waller rolled he began to taunt the Chase U student section and Frazer's mentor Seth "Freakin" Rollins which only served to fire up Frazer as he delivered two pinpoint Superkicks to drop Waller for a nearfall.
The two Superstars traded blows, but Waller appeared more interested in berating Andre Chase and Bodhi Hayward as they led the Chase U student section in chants favoring Frazer. After countering a Spanish Fly attempt from Frazer, "The Arrogant Aussie" looked to deliver a flying elbow, but was caught off guard by Chase sounding an air horn from the crowd. The sharp noise caused Waller to fall off the top rope and opened the door for Frazer to hop up on the turnbuckle and hit a stunning Phoenix Splash for the pinfall.

Cora Jade & Nikkita Lyons def. Natalya & Lash Legend
Cora Jade & Nikkita Lyons looked to prove to their recent tormentors Natalya & Lash Legend who are the more dominant female Superstars, but after a quick start Jade ran into a brick wall in the form of Legend.
Jade managed to escape and tag in Lyons, but little changed as Legend caught the viral sensation with a snap suplex before sending her tumbling to the outside floor with a clothesline. The former WNBA star and The BOAT asserted their dominance by isolating Jade, but after knocking Natalya for a loop with an elbow Jade tagged in Lyons who cleared house with a unique neckbreaker. Legend jumped in to quell the momentum before accidentally eating a kick by Natalya that allowed Lyons to plant Legend with a German Suplex and a split-legged splash followed by a top rope senton from Jade to earn the victory.
The Creed Brothers def. The Viking Raiders
For the first time in their young career, The Creed Brothers squared off against a duo that could match their power as The Viking Raiders manhandled Julius & Brutus Creed in the opening minutes. After withstanding the barrage, The Creeds showed off their own power as Brutus Creed gut-wrench suplexed Erik, but the tide quickly turned as Ivar was tagged in to squash Brutus with a splash on the outside floor.
The four heavyweights pummeled one another with clubbing blows until a fired up Julius Creed took both Viking Raiders off their feet with a chop block and a suplex respectively. After Ivar wiped out Julius Creed, he turned his focus on Brutus Creed, decimating him with a sit-down powerbomb before delivering a splash from the top rope for a pair of stunning nearfalls.
Somehow, The Creed Brothers withstood The Viking Raiders continued beatdown as Julius Creed hung Erik in the ropes following a rolling slam. Roderick Strong then came out of nowhere to deliver a drive by flying knee to Erik who fell backwards into a clothesline from Julius Creed for the 1-2-3. While celebrating in the ring, The Creed Brothers saw replays of Strong's involvement and questioned the self-appointed leader of Diamond Mine on his tactics.
Bron Breakker def. Joe Gacy to retain the NXT Title
After weeks of psychological torment and attacking his family, Bron Breakker was hell bent on getting ahold of Joe Gacy, but he was so incensed that Gacy was able to take advantage and level the NXT Champion with a huge clothesline.
Gacy continued to play mind games, slowly picking apart Breakker as his hooded followers popped up around the arena. After Gacy sent Breakker crashing to the arena floor once again, Breakker caught Gacy with a right hand as he attempted a dive through the ropes and planted him with a top rope bulldog for a two-count. The NXT Champion kept his foot on the gas, but was moving too fast as Gacy sidestepped a stampeding Breakker and delivered a monstrous sit-down powerbomb for another nearfall.
As Gacy berated Breakker he went for his patented springboard clothesline, but Breakker ducked out of the way and delivered a spear to earn the win and retain his NXT Championship. While raising the NXT Title in victory, two hooded figures in red masks hopped up on the apron to leer at Breakker as the show went off the air.
