Back from commercial, Von Wagner is chilling in the locker room when Kyle O’Reilly rolls up to ask why he’s got his back.

Tommaso Ciampa is in the ring to cut a promo.
He hypes up Halloween Havoc and says actions speak louder than words and he wants to know who has the balls to come here and take his NXT Championship from him.
Enter Bron Breakker, in his street clothes.
He says he’s treated Ciampa with nothing but respect since he walked through the door, but he doesn’t give a damn how long he’s been here, he wants to be the NXT Champion. He heard him say he wants to fight somebody with some balls, well Bron has the biggest balls in the locker room, and he challenges Tom to a title match at Halloween Havoc!
Ciampa says the difference between them is that Breakker wants the title, but he NEEDS the title, and it’s his entire reason for being. The way he sees it, Bron has three weeks to go from intern to PhD, challenge accepted.
Commentary hypes up Halloween Havoc for Oct. 26.
Joe Gacy cuts a promo from a dark room.
He says he sat with his voice, the voice of a righteous and inclusive generation, and he knows NXT 2.0 won’t crash like Facebook did, and tonight the ring will be our safe space. Tonight we gather in unity to prove that conflict can be resolved peacefully and yes, there can be two winners.
And so we go to break.

Raquel Gonzalez makes her entrance to send us to break.
Back from commercial we get a hype reel / roll call video for the Diamond Mine.
Raquel Gonzalez is interviewed in the ring.
She says Toxic Attraction has been making headlines but she wonders if the hair dye is seeping into Mandy Rose’s brain, because she’s been dominating this division for nearly a year and the title isn’t a fashion accessory, it means you’re the best female in the best division in the business. If she thinks Sarray busted up her face with that dropkick, she should go ahead and touch the title again, because she’ll be posing for a full-body cast.
Enter Toxic Attraction.
Mandy cuts a promo and says Raquel is coming off really desperate, like she knows her title reign is coming to an end, and her idle threats simply fall at their feet. They’re taking over, and not even the unstoppable Raquel Gonzalez is going to slow them down. Raquel says she’s staring in awe at the six staples she put in her head when she bashed it in with the title belt.
Jacy Jayne adds jealously to go with desperation, and in case she’s been living under a rock, they’re all over Raw and SmackDown as the faces of NXT 2.0, and soon enough Toxic Attraction will be holding all the NXT women’s division gold, because they’re THE attraction. Rose asks if she wants to have some fun, they surround the ring, but Io Shirai and Zoey Stark make the save pre-emptively!
Toxic Attraction make discretion the better part of valor.
We see Kyle O’Reilly backstage with a giant ice pack on his neck when Von Wagner rolls up to say that he’s got them a tag match against Pete Dunne and Ridge Holland, and whether he likes it or not, he’s the only one that’s got his back right now.
Briggs & Jensen make their entrance to send us to break.
Back from commercial I miss the beginning of it due to giving my wife her estradiol injection, but we get a women’s segment where Indi and Persia roll up to presumably challenge for the tag titles.
Commentary hypes up our signed matches for the near future.
Briggs & Jensen (Brooks Jensen & Josh Briggs) vs. Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams vs. Grizzled Young Veterans (James Drake & Zack Gibson) vs. MSK (Nash Carter & Wes Lee) (c) (NXT Tag Team Championship Elimination Match)

Cycling through, Jensen legal, Trick destroys him with punches and a crossbody! Carmelo with a pump kick, off the ropes, Manhattan Drop from Brooks and a tag to Briggs! Stereo shoulder blocks, stereo big boots, Grizzled Young Vets come in and the match breaks down until just B&J are left in the ring. They tag Lee in, he dives, back inside, folding press...
MSK eliminates Hayes & Williams by pinfall with a folding press.
And so we go to break.
