Commentary Team: Tom Phillips & Byron Saxton
We get video highlights from last week, then leads right into Tom Phillips informing us that Prince Balor’s been attacked, his current status is unknown and will not face Velveteen Dream tonight
Dream heads down to the ring, and repeats “new levels, new devils” several times. He starts to address Balor, and here comes the NXT champ.
Adam Cole says everyone assumed whoever won Balor vs. Velveteen would be the new #1 contender, and he sees what Dream did. He didn’t take out Balor, but Undisputed ERA will take out Dream. Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong attack Velveteen from behind while he’s focused on Cole on the ramp. He’s taking a three-on-one beating when here comes Keith Lee! The North American champ fights off Strong & Fish, then Pounces Cole into him them! He checks on Dream as the ERA angrily backs up the ramp.

McKenzie Mitchell interviews Jake at the podium. He says he’s on top of the world, then shouts out Drake as he’s helped to the back. Atlas says he was rooting for him, but the world will know his story. One down, two to go.
We start to get the video package for Keith Lee we saw last week, but it’s cut off by Damian Priest, who doesn’t give a damn about Lee or where he came from. All he cares about is the NA title. Priest says Keith’s picked contenders he knows he can beat. He’s ducking Damian because he knows he hits hard. He knows Keith likes making moments, so he reminds him of the moment he made in his first NXT match – pinning Lee. He’s taking the belt.
KUSHIDA VS TONY NESE:
KUSHIDA works on the arm, Nese with a Running Hotshot then throws KUSHIDA through the barricade, back in the ring for a 1 count, KUSHIDa with a Handspring, but Nese slides out and grabs his wrists & slams him into the barricade again, back in the ring with a Body Scissors, KUSHIDA fights his way out, Nese hangs him in the rope, Springboard Moonsault, but KUSHIDA avoids it, Handspring Back Elbow, Cartwheel Basement Dropkick, Masahiro Tanaka, PK to the arm, Nese with a Wrist-Clutch, but KUSHIDA counters the Viagra Driver into The Hoverboard Lock, but Nese counters into a Northern Lights Suplex for a 2 count, up top, KUSHIDA with a Handspring Double Mule Kick, up top, Nese fights him off, 450 Splash connects, but only gets a near fall, KUSHIDA with a pair of Shoteis, up top, but Nese with a Shoryuken, Avalanche Fireman Carry, but KUSHIDA with the Hoverboard Lock, Avlanche Spanish Fly right into The Hoverboard Lock & Nese taps
Block A: Atlas & KUSHIDA tied at 1, Maverick & Nese tied at 0
Matt Riddle & Timothy Thatcher are interviewed. It’s more odd bromance like Riddle had with Pete Dunne, and includes him confusing Thatcher’s eye color with “Stallion Pete’s”. He has a plan to show the world what a beautiful man Timothy is next week. Thatcher asks what he has in mind & Riddle tells Thatcher to trust him
Scarlett Bordeaux narrates the newest Killer Kross video, telling us she gave us fair warning that it was coming & everyone needs to know that you can’t stop it. Doomsday is upon NXT & laughs. We get confirmation that Killer Kross is now Karrion Kross
We’re at the Gargano’s place, which is candlelit. Johnny is talking about how great a day it was when Candice became Mrs. Wrestling, but he was lucky enough to have multiple fairy tale endings in his life. He runs down his NXT accomplishments, and talks about how no one believed he could beat Tommaso Ciampa. Candice (now with very light purple tinted hair) brings in his dinner and says “we did” (the cup he wore to beat Ciampa in under glass on the table).
He rants about what’s wrong with NXT, and how it’s a place that rewards horrible people and punishes good ones. Candice cuts in and says that’s just NXT. She’s been unappreciated since she got here. And she served as the mother of the locker room, but when she needed them, they weren’t there. It happened over and over, which is the definition of insanity. But insanity gave her clarity. She’s done eating second.
Johnny says they can only trust each other, and says they’re gonna tear down NXT and rebuild it in their image. They’ll be the first married couple to reign over the brand as men’s and women’s champ
Io Shirai gets a video package for her upcoming title shot at Charlotte Flair. The castle where the beautiful queen lives she’s destroying it. Io bows down to no one
McKenzie Mitchell catches up with a teary-eyed Drake Maverick outside somewhere. He says Jake Atlas is great. Every other athlete in the tournament is fighting their opponent. He’s fighting his opponent and himself. Maybe everyone was right about him
MIA YIM VS JESSI KAMEA:
(Kamea was previously Jessie Elaban from the last MYC)
Yim with a Football Kick for a 2 count, Kamea with a Spinning Wheel Kick for a 2 count, Springboard Twisting Elbow Drop for a 2 count, up to the second, Yim avoids the Missile Dropkick, STO, then finishes Kamea with Protect Ya Neck for the win
WINNER: MIA YIM
The Queen is here. She’s in street clothes and has her Women’s title and a mic. Out of the deepest division in WWE, she wants Yim first. She hopes Mia wants it too. She says she’s enjoyed watching Flair grow as she grows into the HBIC. Charlotte says Mia’s always been a good hand, and she looks forward to making her a star next week. Yim is not happy with the disrespect that Charlotte is showing her & the entire division
Gentleman Jack Gallagher gets a video. His tattoos prove he can take pain. He’s bringing something different to this tournament as he looks to capture the title that’s evaded him for three years
Chelsea Green is posing for pics by a pool while Robert Stone directs her, and says it’s just another day for his brand. She swims over and joins him for some lounging as they run down the other women in the division and put her over as a future champ

Mitchell goes to interview him, but he asks for the mic to cut a promo in Spanish about becoming Cruiserweight champ
next week: Charlotte vs Yim, North American Championship as Lee defends against Priest
We see Fantasma talking to the camera and loading his truck outside when the masked kidnappers that took Joaquin Wilde & Raul Mendoza roll up in their van. He fights them off easily (rather suspiciously) and they speed off
