Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, and Roderick Strong are out together.
Cole on the mic first. He tells us how the era of Cole will continue and, really, no one actually thought the Velveteen Dream was going to win the title. He’s good, sure, but the problem is “he’s not Adam Cole, bay-bay.” Now he can no longer challenge for the title as long as Cole has it.
So what’s next?
“The answer is quite simple: It doesn’t freakin’ matter. I have run roughshod over this brand as the most dominant champion in this brand’s history.”
He says no one will be able to beat him for that title.
It’s time to shift focus to Dexter Lumis. He’s crazy, psychotic, a freak, and he’s always getting into ERA’s business. Fish and Roddy are real pissed off about this, Strong because everyone knows he hates being stuffed in trunks.
Roddy sees him in the crowd but when Fish and Cole turn to look, he’s suddenly not there. This is played like Roddy is going crazy over it, but Cole reiterates that they all have each other’s backs.
Cole promises to beat Lumis and send him back to the drawing board where he belongs & that, that’s Undisputed.
As they’re leaving Dexter is shown in the crowd so Roddy wasn’t seeing things
Cole and Fish were trying to console Roddy while telling him to chill out because it becomes a problem when he freaks out.
That’s when Keith Lee comes in and talks about wondering what’s next. He thinks he knows. Cole tells him not to even think about it and exits stage left.
“Soon enough,” Lee responds with a smile.

He’s gotta get warmed up for the match that will indeed be happening tonight

Rhea Ripley was asked backstage how she plans to bounce back from the loss at TakeOver: In Your House. She starts talking but is quickly interrupted by Robert Stone.
He’s breathing heavy and asking if she can feel the “client-manager chemistry.” He calls them both losers before saying they can be like a phoenix rising from the ashes if they get together. He says he’ll do everything for her, and together they can make the Robert Stone brand bigger and better than ever.

The new cruiserweight champion, El Hijo Del Fantasma, was out next.
He started to speak but was quickly cut off by none other than Drake Maverick.
Maverick mentions that they haven’t had time to talk since last week and he just wanted to congratulate the champ. “Thank you for the amazing match we had last week.” He says everyone should have been talking about Fantasma and his journey, not just Maverick’s.
“You deserve to be the NXT Cruiserweight champion.”
Maverick said he’s had so much on his brain the past few months, he can’t help but wonder what would happen if his head was clear, which it is now. He’s a full time contracted member of the NXT roster and he knows he can beat Fantasma. He asks for another shot at the title.
Fantasma agrees to it.
Suddenly, the two masked men show up.
Right then, Fantasma turns on Maverick and it’s revealed the two men are with him. They unmask and it’s Raul Mendoza and Joaquin Wilde. They put the boots to Maverick.

Cole was left in the ring alone with his title. The lights went out.
Scarlett appears at the top of the ramp & makes her way to ringside, she places an hourglass in the ring & turns it over.
