Rose rallied to toss Henley around the ring with a variety of slams and suplexes. Henley fought through the pain to deliver a facebuster for a nearfall, but after trading a couple right hands Rose popped up to smash Henley with a running knee to score the pinfall.
Afterwards Rose grabbed a microphone to call out Alba Fyre.
Alba Fyre sent a fiery message to Mandy Rose
Wes Lee def. Tony D’Angelo to earn a spot in the Halloween Havoc North American Title ladder Match
With Connor's Cure Thriver Quinn "The King Crusher" Molitor by Wes Lee's side as he made his way to the ring, the former two-time NXT Tag Team Champion had an extra dose of motivation as he stood toe-to-toe against Tony D'Angelo. The high-flying style of Lee quickly took The Don off his feet and angered his right hand man Channing "Stacks" Lorenzo who stepped in to protect D'Angelo, but was instead flattened by a dive over the ropes before being ejected from ringside.
With "Stacks" gone, D'Angelo used his brute strength to take control of the match until Lee side stepped a charging D'Angelo to send him flying into the turnbuckle. During the collision, D'Angelo took a nasty fall forcing WWE trainers to step in and check on The Don resulting in the referee stopping the match and declaring Lee the winner.
Sol Ruca def. Amari Miller
Sol Ruca astounded in her NXT debut match against fan favorite Amari Miller. Ruca utilized her acrobatic background to counter and upend Miller before delivering a massive facebuster. Miller looked to spoil the rookie's debut, locking Ruca up in a submission attempt, but Ruca slipped out of the hold to hit a picture perfect dropkick. Keeping her foot on the gas, Ruca flattened Miller with a splash in the corner before landing a unique standing seated senton to earn the victory.
Joe Gacy def. Cameron Grimes
Cameron Grimes' animosity was on full display as he immediately attacked his tormentor Joe Gacy with a flurry of brutal kicks once the bell rang. After escaping the early wrath, Gacy proceeded to pummel Grimes, but it only fired up Grimes more as he leapt over The Dyad to take out Gacy with a senton off the apron.
The Dyad continued to distract Grimes at ringside allowing Gacy to take control. Gacy ridiculed Grimes while he rained down blows until a heated Grimes responded with a huge superkick. As Grimes lined up for a Cave In, Rip Fowler hopped up on the apron to provide a momentary distraction but he was met by a clothesline from Grimes. "The Richest Man in NXT" turned to deliver a Cave In, but Jagger Reid raced in at the last second to push Gacy out of the way, allowing The Schism's leader to level Grimes with his springboard clothesline for the 1-2-3.
Nikkita Lyons def. Kayden Carter
With Zoey Stark cheering her on from ringside, Nikkita Lyons looked to prove she and Stark deserved to challenge for the NXT Women's Tag Team Titles in a one-on-one matchup with Kayden Carter. Carter used her agility and acrobatic offense to avoid the hard-hitting Lyons, but she couldn't dodge Lyons for long as Lyons tagged her with a swift kick to the head.
After showing off some acrobatic offense of her own, Lyons continued to batter Carter with kicks before hitting a Michinoku Driver for a nearfall. Carter rallied to catch Lyons with a vicious kick, but as she hopped up on the top rope Lyons knocked her off and followed up with a spinning roundhouse kick and a split-legged splash in quick succession to earn the pinfall.
Ilja Dragunov def. Xyon Quinn
Following a fateful run-in backstage, former NXT UK Champion Ilja Dragunov showed Xyon Quinn he hadn't lost a step in his first match on NXT in over a year. Dragunov grappled with Quinn until the Samoan Superstar got a handful of hair to pull Dragunov off and hammer him with forearms.
As the two Superstars exchanged hands in the center of the ring, Dragunov bounced back to hammer Quinn with a kick and a clothesline. Feeding off the crowd, Dragunov picked Quinn up for a pair of suplexes before soaring in for a flying headbutt and the victory.
Brutus Creed def. Damon Kemp via disqualification
With his blood boiling due to Damon Kemp's recent betrayals, Brutus Creed refused to wait for Kemp to get into the ring, meeting the former Diamond Mine member on the entrance ramp to kick off a heated and brutul showdown. The two grapplers picked up and launched one another around the ring as Kemp tried to maintain control of Creed.
After Creed tackled Kemp out of the ring, an irate Kemp grabbed a steel chair and proceeded to batter Creed well beyond the bell until referees finally pulled him away. Fired up, Kemp yelled into the camera calling out Julius Creed.
Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen def. Gallus in a Pub Rules Match
After wreaking havoc throughout the NXT Arena leading up to the main event showdown, Joe Coffey was banned from ringside as Gallus and Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen threw down in a hard-hitting Pub Rules Match. With all manner of weaponry strewn around the ring, the two teams battered each other with trash cans, ropes, and steel chairs before obliging the NXT faithful by pulling out a pair of tables.
Gallus drubbed Briggs with a dropkick and a powerslam in quick succession on the arena floor before using their numbers to take out Jensen. Briggs jumped back into the fray to save his friend but was quickly beat down before Wolfgang and Mark Coffey lashed the country strong duo across the back with belts. With welts already formed on their backs, Briggs & Jensen returned the favor before smashing a pair of beer mugs on Gallus' heads.
Joe Coffey stormed out to the ring to turn the tide, but was kicked off the apron and sent flying through a table. Briggs & Jensen then turned their attention to Wolfgang, tossing him through a table before upending Mark Coffey, who was trapped inside a trash can, with their tandem high-low clothesline and leg sweep to secure the pinfall.
While Briggs & Jensen celebrated, Gallus regrouped looking to keep the fight going. WWE Officials and referees attempted to hold the trio back as they swung at anything that moved. Finally police officers arrived to handcuff all three members of Gallus and lead them out of the arena.
