Charlotte Flair’s speech is a pre-recorded sit-down where she puts over Rhea Ripley as the future. But she says her title win will make her the first woman to dominate three eras. She beat the stars of the past like Nikki Bella and Trish Stratus. She dominated her own contemporaries. And now she’s here in NXT to prove she’s better than the next generation. She runs down prospective challengers, and offers Mia Yim “the first lottery ticket” since Yim her first match after she won the NXT Women’s Title the first time.

Video promo from El Hijo del Fantasma even though he lost it in Mexico they’ve given him back his mask. In Spanish, he explains his history and says he can’t think of a better way to launch his NXT career than by winning the Cruiserweight title

Keith Lee says his journey to NXT started when he was five and his grandmother introduced him to wrestling. But when he decided to pursue it as a career, his whole family was against it. He stole his own car to make his own town, and almost got kicked out of the house for it.

For the next 13 years, he heard a lot of people tell him no. He’s too big, he doesn’t wrestle like them. But now he’s here on the biggest stage in the business, and he stands out. He thanks us for supporting him as we see his highlights since Survivor Series. He could have given up, but he decided to grind & work harder instead. And that’s what it means to be Limitless


Miles asks if anyone’s in there and gets a pair of clubs to his back for his trouble, Dexter with a Spinebuster, he stalks Miles, Sambo Suplex into the Kata-Gatame & Miles taps out


Cole is still at the pool. Did Dream actually think he was going to show up? Is Velveteen stupid? He’s still focused on protecting reality, and reality is that no one in NXT deserves a shot at his title. There are more important things to focus on right now… like Roderick Strong & Bobby Fish winning the Tag titles tonight and helping make Undisputed ERA whole again.

Dream is coming out anyway. He steps to the podium, saying it’s typical of Cole. Does he really think Dream is stupid? Because he thinks a lot of the champ. He puts over Cole’s accomplishments and calls him the greatest NXT champion of all time. But when it comes down to it, it’ll be Dream Over BAY BAY. We see Prince Balor over his shoulder. Balor steps to him and says he doesn’t know who he is,he doesn’t like him and up to this point he’s never spoken to him. But he will now, because if he keeps making incorrect statements about who the best NXT champion is, they’ll have a date. Velveteen suggest Balor pick him up next Wednesday.

Malcolm Bivens is here with Rinku and Sauruv, and he’s quoting Johnny Gill. They’re coming after whoever wins the titles tonight

Next week: Fantasma vs Gallagher, KUSHIDA vs Nese, Atlas vs Maverick, (in one of Drake’s final matches for NXT) Shotzi & Tegan vs Kai & Raquel

Stallion Pete is on the big screen to introduce the partner he picked for Riddle… Timothy Thatcher!

Tommaso Ciampa talks to the camera from backstage. He’s done with this, he’s done with Johnny & Candice. They agreed whoever won that was it and Johnny Gargano & Candice LeRae showed the world. So Johnny’s the better man, he’s CIAMPA’S ATTACKED! The camera gets hit so we don’t see anything, just hear a beating. Tommaso falls to the ground, and a high heeled vinyl boot steps next to his face. Then a bald guy in a leather blazer drops down. It’s Killer Kross & Scarlet Bordeuax!

Tick-Tock. As the show ends
