Cathy Kelley catches up with Tyler Breeze at a photo shoot. He says he’s learned one of the things that’s changed since he left is that everybody has a team. So he has a choice, he can either adapt or… Before he can reveal that choice, Forgotten Sons roll up. They call him a blast from the past, and say he’s out of place now. Breeze gets in a crack about how much things have changed, asking if Jaxon Ryker was Buddy Murphy. Wesley Blake says there you go being funny, but Ryker is an absolute savage, something Prince Pretty’s never seen before. Tyler leaves, saying he’s seen everything

Kelley catches up with Keith Lee and asks about his tenure at NXT. That makes him think about his starts and stops, and how he was promised opportunities when he came here. He mentions how there was no Breakout Tournament when he started. Now there’s a newcomer getting more shots in Damian Priest, so maybe it’s on him to change the narrative? He thanks Cathy for the talk and we learn it will be Priest vs. Lee next week

NXT champ Adam Cole is here! He grabs a mic to talk about the BAY BAY Championship tour, and how he’s used it to show all the morons in the NXT Universe what a real champ looks like, what true power is. And while he was gone, his boys were taking care of business here at Full Sail. There is a definite change happening here, and that means he’ll be a fighting champ. He’s going to defend his title tonight, and he’ll do it against… Cole points to the ‘tron, and a video with Johnny Gargano starts. It’s Johnny at ACW’s wrestling school, and it’s set-up for the champ to introduce Twan Tucker, who interacted with Johnny and Cole during the vignettes at the school over the last couple months.

Cole says he’s giving Tucker a huge opportunity. He’s all alone, there’s no Undisputed ERA, so Twan can try to knock the taste out of his mouth if he wants. Tucker has a mic, and says he didn’t come alone… here’s Johnny!

Johnny Wrestling charges the ring, and a brawl ends with a superkick. Cole tries to flee into the stands, but Gargano follows. They fight up and down the stairs, and Cole tries to escape with a cheapshot, but Johnny throws him into the production area. Officals separate them and it looks like it’s over, but Gargano dives off the stage onto the champ with a Crossbody. They head back to the ring where another exchange ends with a DIY Superkick. Then he locks on Garga-No Escape until Cole taps. Refs finally get him off, and Johnny puts up three fingers as he backs up the ramp, signalling he wants the rubber match for the belt
