We come back to commercial to a pre-tape of Mitchell interviewing Tyler Breeze about what the PC means to him. They’re interrupted by Austin Theory, who shades Prince Pretty about not being cut out to be a mega-star. Breeze takes his pic and when Theory asks why, he says he looks like a flash in the pan.
The NXT Women’s champ enters the PC. She says that if Charlotte Flair is going to play mind games, she’ll have to step up. She admits this is the biggest match of her career, but what gets her through is knocking the Queen on her royal ass. Before she can gets much further, Charlotte shows up.
She shuts down the “You don’t go here” chant with “I built here” they respond with a “Go back to Raw” chant. Charlotte says Rhea’s issue won’t be the 80,000 chanting her name, it’ll be that she’s too much for her to handle. At Mania she’s gonna take Ripley to deep water and drown the fastest rising star in WWE & Rhea’s not going to do a damn thing about it. The champ doesn’t wait to hear anything else and attacks. Charlotte gets the better of the brawl, and after bouncing Ripley’s knee off the ringpost, she locks a Figure Four on her around the ring post. Charlotte poses with the belt while the champ writhes in pain.
WALTER gets a video package that ends with Finn Balor holding up a passport and saying of the hype for the NXT UK champ that “lies travel faster than truth”.
Mia Yim being interviewed as she leaves the building. A van speeds by and 2 Shinobi in lucha masks jump out and abduct Raul Mendoza (It’s the ninjas that kidnapped Samoa Joe in TNA, they’re back! Ok in all seriousness this is probably leading to the arrival of the former King Cuerno/El Hijo del Fantasma if I had to guess)

Deonna goes right after the arm, Nox with a goozle, but Deonna with a Divorce Court Driver, Exploder Suplex for a 2 count, Shoryuken to the arm, Nox with a Running European Uppercut, Deonna blocks the Cannonboar, Pump Kick then follows into the Fujiwara Armbar, but Nox turns it into a flash pin for a 2 count then finishes Deonna with The Shiniest Wizard for the win to qualify for the Ladder Match as 3 of the 6 spots have been filled
WINNER: TEGAN NOX
More apocalyptic images as the Doomsday Clock continues to tick ever closer to midnight
Velveteen Dream’s music plays. He’s on the balcony, and says there are four little men in the PC ring. But he only has his eye on one, and that’s Cole and the belt. Because he was never interested in Roddy or his family. They’re just tights (he holds up and throws the tights with Marina & Troy over his shoulder). It was also Dream’s plan, Strong was just dumb enough to fall for it. So he wants to talk about the main event of TakeOver: Tampa, Dream vs. Cole.
The champ tells Velveteen to dream on. Next week, Cole is having a celebration as he’ll be the longest reigning NXT champion of all time. He says he and Roddy will head after Velveteen and end this right now, but Dream says not so fast and signals for the tag champ’s music

Tommaso Ciampa’s on the mic goading Johnny Gargano into delivering the explanation he promised. Johnny comes on the big screen in a conference room, bringing up Ciampa’s past 3 years, what he did to Gargano and to the fans and how he’s the worst person in NXT. Did he miss an apology? Why has Ciampa been redeemed?
Blackheart doesn’t even listen, rolling out of the ring and heading backstage to the conference room Johnny’s filming in. He says they’re doing this his way as slams a laptop over Gargano’s back, as he attacks Gargano.
He boots him down the hall, Johnny grabs a framed WrestleMania poster off the wall, Ciampa blocks, grabs it and slams it into Johnny’s back, Johnny slinks to the trainer’s room where he grabs a crutch from a dude being evaluated, Ciampa kicks a rolling cart into Johnny and grabs the crutch & slams it into Gargano’s back bending it as Drake Wuertz tries to stop him, a security guy comes in only to get his lights punched out by Ciampa. Ciampa throws a trash can at Gargano & tells him no more games, no more DIY.
They get to the gym, where Johnny is able to get some space by sending Ciampa into a weight machine, Ciampa sends Johnny into a garage door, Gargano gets some more space spraying an aerosol can in Ciampa’s eyes. He throws Ciampa throw a door’s window! More security & Johnny wastes both of them, thanks for coming guys. Gargano says this Ciampa’s house huh and throws him over a big tire, he says Ciampa’s a liar as he delivers a Running Kick to the ribs, he sends Ciampa into another weight lifting machine, he tells Ciampa to get up & look him in the eyes, then picks up a big weight and goes to brain him with it, Ciampa fights it off and blasts Johnny in the mid-section with it. He throws a pair of smaller weights at him, Johnny evades, the weights shattering a wall-length mirror! They finally fight through the locker area back out to ringside.
Trading punches in the bleachers. Superkick from Johnny! Big boot from Ciampa! he grabs a chair and uses it during a running knee that sends both men through a barricade. Tommaso stands on some seats and declares this is his house. He brings Johnny to the announce desk and goes for Powerbomb, but Gargano fights it off. Johnny heads to the balcony perch and Ciampa follows suit. They brawl there, and Tommaso tries to throw Johnny off. Gargano fights him off and he takes out a part of the railing! He gets him on his shoulders, but Ciampa fights that off by dislodging another part of the railing. More brawling, then Johnny gets Tommaso in the Garga-No Escape. Drake makes him break the hold, but Gargano decks him! He delivers a Superkick then sets for something off the perch, telling the crowd this is a teachable moment. That gives Tommaso time to recover. Air Raid Crash off the balcony perch through the announce desk!
General Manager William Regal arrives with more refs as both men are down. They’re calling for medical help as the show ends.
Just a reminder Smackdown is scheduled to be held at the PC tomorrow, that is if there’s anything left of it after this brawl
