NXT Tag Team Champions Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch def.
Tommaso Ciampa & Timothy Thatcher in a non-title match

Timothy Thatcher used his proficient mat-based arsenal early
to ground and pound both opponents, later tagging in Tommaso
Ciampa, who complemented his partners style with a barrage
of crisp strikes. Thatcher & Ciampa were derailed by the
presence of Imperium on stage, however, distracting their
attention and stopping Thatcher from making a sorely-needed
tag. With Oney Lorcan knocking Ciampa out of the equation,
he and Danny Burch dropped Thatcher with a combination DDT
for the victory.

Afterward, Ciampa was beset by confusion and frustration
over Thatchers inability to make the tag because of
Imperium, questioning what he had seen.

Finn Blor confronted Roderick Strong

Roderick Strong demanded that former Undisputed ERA ally
Adam Cole meet him face to face, but he was instead met by
NXT Champion Finn Blor. The Prince said he knew the only
way to lure Adam Cole: with an NXT Title Match next week.
But Blor wasnt finished, taking issue with Strong blaming
him for The Undisputed ERAs implosion. Blor responded by
deriding Strongs lack of leadership bonafides, and the two
quickly came to blows before being separated by officials.

Austin Theory had a breakthrough in therapy with The Way

Thanks to a handful of cash, Johnny Gargano got what he
wanted out of therapy for Austin Theory: discord between
Theory and his friend Dexter Lumis. With Theory eventually
moved to tears and storming out when told Lumis said Theory
had mediocre abs, the not-so-upstanding therapists work
was done.

Ember Moon w/Shotzi Blackheart def. Aliyah w/Robert Stone
and Jessi Kamea

Aliyah impressed against the former NXT Womens Champion,
putting a big smile on the face of Robert Stone at ringside.
But Ember Moon battled back, dropping NXTs Boujee Superstar
with a big-time spinebuster. Stone interjected himself,
occupying the referee to allow Jessi Kamea to stop Moon from
a possible high-flying attack. Shotzi Blackhearts presence
at ringside proved pivotal, as she snuffed out the
shenanigans with a double-clothesline to both on the
outside, allowing Moon to connect with the Eclipse for the

WWE Womens Tag Team Champions Nia Jax & Shayna Baszler def.
Raquel Gonzlez & Dakota Kai

Renewing a rivalry from NXTs past, Shayna Baszler and
Dakota Kai kicked things off in intense fashion. The Queen
of Spades looked to execute the same maneuver she used to
break Kais arm years ago, but Kai evaded and defiantly
slapped Baszler. Raquel Gonzlezs entry completely upended
the match, eventually setting the stage for a showdown
between Big Mami Cool and Nia Jax perhaps the two most
powerful women in WWE.

The powerhouses battered each other, inadvertently taking
out the referee and eventually tumbling over the announce
table, leading to a controversial ending. Meanwhile, Baszler
trapped Kai in the Kirifuda Clutch, and though Gonzlez was
the legal competitor, Adam Pearce waved in a Raw official,
who called for the bell, ruling the decision a technical

Pearce and NXT General Manager William Regal were later seen
in a shouting match backstage, and Regal promised a major
announcement related to the matter next week.

Cameron Grimes def. Bronson Reed

Prior to the match, Bronson Reed crossed paths with LA
Knight, who played a decisive role in this contest. Having
seen enough after failing to chop the big man down, Cameron
Grimes attempted to high-tail it out of the Capitol
Wrestling Center, only for Reed to flatten him with a jaw-
dropping dive through the ropes. Reed seemed poised to
deliver the Tsunami splash to Grimes, but an altercation
with Knight upended Reed and left him a sitting duck for
Grimes Cave-In, making the win academic for The Technical

Legado del Fantasma took out Breezango and Ever-Rise

The scheduled match between Breezango and Ever-Rise never
started thanks to a savage attack on both by Legado del
Fantasma. After losing in a brutal Street Fight against
Karrion Kross last week, Santos Escobar seemed intent on
reasserting his dominance by leaving both teams lying.

NXT Champion Finn Blor def. Roderick Strong in a non-title

Laser-focused on his mission of taking out Adam Cole, Finn
Blor was at the top of his game and grounded Roderick
Strong for much of the matchup. Strong was eventually able
to quicken the pace and fight back with signature offense,
including hard strikes, a bevvy of backbreakers, an olympic
slam and a double-underhook powerbomb, after which he nearly
pinned the NXT Champion. The full arsenal of two of NXTs
most technically savvy Superstars was on display as Blor
answered with a Slingblade out of nowhere before Strong
blocked a flying dropkick and transitioned into the Strong

The Prince countered Strongs attempt at the End of
Heartache, firing back with a miraculous double-foot stomp
out of mid-air. Blors second attempt at his flying
dropkick found the mark, setting Strong up for the Coup de
Grace and 1916 DDT to secure the victory.

Adam Cole strolled into the Capitol Wrestling Center
afterward to lock eyes with Blor, setting the stage for a
mammoth NXT Championship showdown next week.
