Roderick Strong storms to the ring on his own
Roddy says no disrespect to the boys in The ERA, but this isn’t about them, or the North American title. This is about Velveteen Dream crossing the line and putting his wife and son on his gear. He’s going to hurt Dream & he’s going to do something he’s not going to regret. He demands an apology… but he doesn’t get Dream. He gets Bronson Reed, who’s pissed Strong took him out backstage last week.
RODERICK STRONG VS BRONSON REED:
Reed with a Double Fish Hook, he sends Roddy into the turnbuckle hard for a 2 count, Inverted Bearhug, Roddy fights out and lights up Reed with a Chop, Reed with a Stalling Suplex, Roddy avoids the Butt-Butt, Reed with a Flying Shoulder Block off the apron, Reed with a Butt-Butt for a 2 count, Reed with a Stungun then a Lariat for a near fall, Snap Powerslam then a Senton, up top, but Roddy cuts him off, Roddy with a Step-Up Enzugiri followed by a Superplex for a 2 count, he sends Reed back in when the arena turns purple, Reed with a Tope Suicida, back in, he looks for the Australian Splash, but Roddy counters with The Knockout Knee for the win
WINNER: RODERICK STRONG
Dream’s voice hits the speakers, and we see his “Call Me Up Marina” tights on the screen. He asks if Roddy remembers when he met his wife, Marina (Shafir. one of Shayna’s thugs). Because he remembers when TUE tried to cripple him, and take away his career. Strong has a lot that could be taken away, and a picture of the Strong family comes on the screen. Velveteen promises that if anything ever happens to Roddy, someone will be there to take care of Marina. A pissed off Strong races backstage.
We get a video of The BroserWeights. Matt Riddle says “the three of them” need to get to Portland (him, Pete Dunne, and the Dusty Cup). Dunne says they can’t fly with the trophy, so The Bro announces ROAD TRIP! Pete drives on the wrong side of the road for a bit, and the BroserWeights get pulled over. Matt says to let him do the talking, then we hear Dunne saying that’s the last time Riddle does the talking as we see the car being loaded on a tow truck. Neither of them have licenses! Dunne asks what now, and we get a “To be continued…”
Cathy Kelley interviews Angel Garza backstage. He reminds us that he didn’t lose the belt, since Swerve was the guy Devlin pinned at Worlds Collide. Lio Rush interrupts and says the guy Garza beat for the belt a few months back? That guy is gone. Angel doesn’t seem worried about facing the new Lio Rush.

Adam Cole is with Kelley. He’s gonna teach KUSHIDA a lesson tonight, and he’ll teach Tommaso Ciampa a lesson. He’s sick of hearing about how Ciampa never lost the title. The belt means the world to him too, and he’ll do anything to keep it. He dismissed Cathy
We see The BroserWeights on some water, and Pete asks if Matt’s plan is to take a boat to Portland. The camera pans out and they’re pedaling a swan-shaped raft. Riddle says that’s not the plan, these are just his peaceful waters where he comes to think and chill. Light bulb dude! To be continued
We see Robert Stone at the head of a large conference table. Next week they’re getting a do-over against Kayden Carter. There’s no way she’ll get three against Chelsea Green again. They’re restarting their brand.

WINNER: BIANCA BELAIR
Belair gets a mic, and wonders about Rhea Ripley continuing to go to Raw like she isn’t even here. But go ahead and keep overlooking her, because on Sunday she’ll take the title.
That brings out the champ. Rhea hits the ring and gets a mic. She assures Bianca that she’s not looking past her. She’s looking right at her, and telling her that at TakeOver she’s gonna go right through her. Belair misses a punch, but quickly regroups to hit KOD on Ripley.
We’re back with the BroserWeights. Riddle, Dunne & DC are on a runway with a private jet. Pete can’t believe it, but Riddle says he knows a guy. They discuss how they’re gonna get the trophy in the boot, and Dunne doesn’t like Riddle saying “boot” or trying to do a British accent. The Bro convinces Pete to crawl in the luggage compartment first, then shoves the trophy in and climbs in himself. Dunne asks who’s plane this is anyway, and we see Triple H board. Matt shouts “We’re going to Portland!” and we see the plane take off.
Ciampa is in the PC conference room, watching the scene where he turned over the title before his neck surgery. He said he was gonna come back stronger than ever, but the truth is he was scared. He runs through some what ifs. What if he doesn’t beat Adam Cole Sunday and Cole becomes the longest reigning NXT champ in history? What if there’s one guy that wants it more? What if someone can beat him, though, and what if Ciampa is that someone? They say the man who has nothing to lose is the most dangerous of all. When Cole looks him in the eyes, he’ll know that’s true

Cole gets his belt and poses, but here comes the Psycho Killer! Ciampa slowly walks to the ring where the champ is waiting. He circles the ring, staring at Goldy. He climbs through the ropes and circles Cole doing the same. Ciampa says “In Portland, I take my life back”. Cole responds, “Over my dead body you do”
