The show opens up with a promo package from tag team champions Pretty Deadly where they hype tonight’s show up for us.

Hayes jumps in on Grimes, Sikoa paintbrushes him a few times and lays him out with a vicious back body drop! Carmelo runs away from stereo superkicks and Cameron grabs a side headlock on Solo! Off the ropes, schoolboy from Grimes, Oklahoma roll, O’Connor roll but none of them put him away!

Three-way slugging it out in the aftermath, Sikoa stacks ‘em up and knocks ‘em down with a backsplash in the corner! Big German suplex to Grimes, powerbomb on Hayes, true uranage... CAMERON BREAKS IT UP! Solo headed up top, Grimes cuts him off with an enzuigiri, nobody home on the Cave-In but he Frankensteiners both challengers at the same time!

Cameron Grimes wins by pinfall with Cave-In to retain the NXT North American Championship.

We get video of Mandy Rose going to a tanning salon earlier today.

She invites the other Toxics to come join her and lays down in the bed, unawares that Wendy Choo is dressed like a shark to sneak in and turn her controls all the way up. Rose gets out of the bed a horrible shade of red and doesn’t notice until Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne greet her with confused and terrified stares.

They make their excuses and leave her to her reflection, which she screams on seeing.

Nathan Frazer is interviewed backstage.

He says this is like a dozen Christmases and birthdays rolled into one and he’s been waiting for this his entire life.

Grayson Waller makes his entrance to send us to break.


Back from commercial, Roderick Strong rolls up on the Creed Brothers to give them a pep talk and remind them that he’s the leader of Diamond Mine, with Malcolm Bivens’ departure left completely unacknowledged.

Duke Hudson rolls up on Indi Hartwell, who looks like she’s in mourning.

He’s pensive for a moment and she says “oh hell no!” which leads him to “you wish!” and me to roll my eyes.

Grayson Waller vs. Nathan Frazer

Frazer ready to go, side headlock, shot off, leapfrog, drop down, dropkick takes Waller off his feet! Headlock takeover, hanging onto it, drop down, leapfrog, hip toss but Nathan lands an upkick and another headlock! Sending Grayson crashing to the floor, he runs away and takes a seat in the ramp, Frazer goes charging and throws him back in the ring!

Waller cuts him off, throwing grounded punches, clubbing him down, right hands, whip across, big chop in the corner and against the ropes, smashing Grayson’s face into the turnbuckles, back body drop puts Nathan on the apron, springboard blocked and he gets guillotined on the top rope!

Grayson winds up and charges to the floor with a vicious lariat and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Frazer cracks off an enzuigiri that sends Waller crashing to the floor, but he returns in and cuts him off, tuning up the band, to the ramp, Nathan with a suicide dive and he throws him back inside! Basement superkick, Grayson gets the ropes, no dice!

Back and forth, Waller gets the upper hand but slips on the ropes and goes throat-first into them! Frazer off the top...

Nathan Frazer wins by pinfall with a Phoenix Splash.

We get a video package for Fallon Henley.

We see Santos Escobar rolling up and we go to break.


Back from commercial, we see Bron Breakker warming up backstage.

We see Legado del Fantasma waiting as Tony D’Angelo and his boys roll up.

Tony says tonight they’ll settle things like businessmen, and Santos says no. Out on the street, everyone can trust him, but with D’Angelo, he can’t see the trust, because he keeps playing games. They talk about how peace is best for both of them and make a toast to the peace agreement.

And so we go to break.


Back from commercial, the Viking Raiders are interviewed backstage.

They say the Creeds are world-class athletes but they’re grown-ass men.

Pretty Deadly roll up to tell them they’re facing damaged goods, and the Vikings say if they interrupt again they’ll damage their goods.

Joe Gacy cuts a promo about how change is necessary and he is the change, and tonight we’re on the precipice of a big change.

Cora Jade & Nikkita Lyons vs. Lash Legend & Natalya

Legend and Jade to start, Lash with a back elbow, knocking her down, Cora with a Frankensteiner in return, powerbomb lift, ram into the corner, trading nearfalls, tag to Natalya, handshake denied, Jade blocks a boot, tag to Lyons, double snapmare, cover for two!

Neidhart with a front kick and a slap, nearfall off a schoolboy, Nikkita with a headlock, block with a stomp, tag to Legend. Front kick, big elbows, Lyons throws ‘em back, and we go to break as the action spills to the floor.

Back from commercial, Natalya in control, she gets Jade up in a Canadian backbreaker rack, and follows it up with a lariat! Neidhart draws her up, tag to Legend, working Cora over as a heat segment rolls on. Tag to Lyons, running hot with kicks, trading nearfalls with Nattie, running blockbuster... NOPE!

Lash in, big dropkick into mounted punches, Neidhart has a malfunction at the junction and knocks her down, Nikkita sends her packing and drops Legend with a huge German suplex! Tag to Jade, diving senton...

Cora Jade & Nikkita Lyons win by pinfall with a diving senton from Jade on Lash Legend.

We get a hype reel for the NXT Women’s Breakout Tournament.

Viking Raiders make their entrance and we go to break.


Back from commercial, Toxic Attraction’s tag team are walking outside when Wendy Choo and Roxanne Perez are shown following them to the beach.

Gigi and Jacy frolic in the surf and we see Choo and Perez stealing their shoes and their car keys. They give a merry chase but get stymied by the hot pavement between them and their car.

Creed Brothers (Brutus & Julius Creed) vs. Viking Raiders (Erik & Ivar)

Vikings in control on Julius early but he’s able to kick out of Viking Experience! Tag to Brutus, cleaning house, grounded punches on Erik, following it up with a Karelin lift, slamming his own brother into the big viking! Julius with punches, quick tags, judo throw, back body drop from Erik gets some breathing room!

Ivar with a splash off the top and to the floor and we go to break.

Back from commercial, Erik working a reverse chinlock on Brutus, tags are made, big slam from Julius! Boot up, suplexing Ivar into a powerbomb from Brutus... NOPE! Vikings double-team him, he floats over, Warbeard with a Tiger Driver... STILL NO! Ivar powerbombs Erik into Creed and heads up top for a 747 Splash... NOT ENOUGH!

Julius back and forth, Banzai Drop from Warbeard! He goes up top, Creed pops up, superplex! Demolition Decapitation from the Vikings, Brutus breaks it up! Cartwheel slam from Julius, Brutus sends Warbeard to the floor but Erik cracks a knee across Julius’ jaw! Roderick Strong runs in and pops him a knee...

Creed Brothers win by pinfall with a falling lariat from Julius Creed on Erik.

Post-match, Roderick Strong and the Creeds jaw at each other a bunch.

In the parking lot, Santos Escobar chats with Tony D’Angelo’s pal and tells him he knows how important he is to him and knees him in the gut before kidnapping him!

And so we go to break.


Back from commercial, we get another Alba Fyre vignette.

We see Brooks Jensen getting checked out by a trainer, who says his unusually strong arm muscles mean he’ll heal from his injury sooner than the 10-12 week estimate, in about 6-8 weeks.

Bron Breakker (c) vs. Joe Gacy (NXT Championship)

Feeling out, Breakker sends Gacy to the floor where he’s slow to return but Bron pulls him back inside. Joe cuts him off with a front chancery, standing neck crank, he blasts the champion off the apron and heads out after him. Whip reversed, Tiger feint lariat sends Bron crashing down as we go to break.

Back from commercial, Gacy hangs upside down in the turnbuckles and hits a Rock Bottom out of it for two! Grinding Breakker down, throwing headbutts, Hot Shot into shoulder blocks from the champ! Off the ropes, duck a lariat, throw a big one of his own... NOPE! Inverted DDT gets another two and both men slowly rise.

Diving bulldog from the champ, front kick and the straps are down! Military press, Gacy slips out, forearm to the kidneys but Bron hits a Frankensteiner and a belly-to-belly for recovery! Joe sidesteps, Alabama Slam connects, Liger Bomb... STILL NO! Gacy tells him he’s taking the title away from him, handspring, Bron ducks, spear...

Bron Breakker wins by pinfall with a spear to retain the NXT Championship.

Post-match, a pair of druids in red facemasks pop up behind Bron Breakker, but we see nothing further happen.

That’s the show, folks.
