Joe Gacy and the Dyad approach the Creed Brothers and Ivy Nile to invite them to join his faction if Diamond Mine implodes the rest of the way.
The Creeds say Diamond Mine fight amongst themselves, but they’re forever. Roderick Strong and Damon Kemp roll up and Roddy says he’s got that right, Diamond Mine are a family. Joe senses hostility and that’s the segment.
Giovanni Vinci makes his entrance to send us to break.
Toxic Attraction are interviewed backstage about their new contenders.
They say it doesn’t matter that Cora and Roxanne are best friends because they’ve beaten all kinds of relationships and if Perez even thinks of saving that contract for Mandy Rose...

He talks about how he’s earned his spot through being exceptional and Grayson Waller rolls up to talk him up.
He says he’s a little embarrassed and his mates at home are big Melo fans and he’s got some stuff for him to sign. Hayes is enthused with how trustworthy Waller is as he walks off.
Briggs and Jensen make their entrance.
They talk up winning the NXT UK Tag Team Championship and they put up a hell of a fight but best believe they brought the fight right back to them baby! And when Ashton Smith and Oliver Carter are good to go again, they’ll give them their rematch.
Brooks Jensen thanks Josh Briggs for picking him once upon a time to start their team, and Briggs wants to go off and drink some beer, but—
Enter Pretty Deadly.
They’re upset that American trailer trash put hands on the belts they made famous, and they’re the only ones that can save them, yes boy. Briggs lands a cheap shot and they send Pretty Deadly packing!
We get a Bron Breakker video package about how NXT is his life.
Indi Hartwell makes her entrance to send us to break.

Diamond Mine make their entrance and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Wes Lee gets a promo.
He says he was baring his soul last week when Trick Williams interrupted him, and the fact that he wears his heart on his sleeve doesn’t make him weak, it’s all strength, and at Great American Bash he’ll have no pity for him and nothing will stop him from finding his inner peace in that ring.
Diamond Mine (Brutus Creed, Julius Creed, & Roderick Strong) vs. Joe Gacy & the Dyad (Dyad I & Dyad II)
Strong and Gacy to start, collar and elbow, Roddy shifts to a wristlock, reversed, Joe grabs a side headlock and wrenches it in. Shot off, shoulder block, drop down, go-behind, waistlock takedown! A Dyad comes in, tag to Brutus, Creeds working the hooded man over.
Dyad falls to the floor, Gacy gives him a pep talk, he returns and drops Julius with a series of lariats! Fist drop into a forearm choke, overhead elbow into a rear chinlock, lariat and a cover. The match breaks down, all six men in the ring, Diamond Mine with straight suplexes in triplicate, send the Dyad to the floor and then Gacy right behind them with a dropkick to send us to break!

Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams are interviewed on their way out of the building.
Trick says the bigger badder man is going to beat that bum into oblivion, and it turns out that Grayson Waller tricked him into signing a contract for a title match. Carmelo is apoplectic but confident of a win.
Lash Legend interrupts a medical report on Alba Fyre and says Alba is on the shelf permanently and the NXT women’s division should stay out of her way.
Sanga is attacked during his entrance by Xyon Quinn and referees have to pull them apart as we go to break.
Back from commercial, the Creeds are flipping out in the locker room and Roddy joins them to yell at them about now listening enough. Julius says they won’t do this anymore, Strong accuses them of not hearing what he has to say, so he challenges them to a tag match against him and Kemp next week, for the tag titles.
Sanga vs. Xyon Quinn
Quinn bails and jaws at Sanga, back inside with jabs, right hands, forearms to the kidneys, off the ropes with a shoulder block but Sanga bowls him over with one of his own in return! Hammering Xyon in the corner, clothesline to the floor! Back inside, Snake Eyes, clubs to the back, Quinn gets off the ropes for a clubberin’ of his own.
Reverse chinlock applied, Sanga reverses, Cobra Clutch in the middle of the ring, Xyon fades, Sanga shoves him off and drops him with a lariat! Lying in wait, goozle...
Sanga wins by pinfall with a chokeslam.
We see Nikkita Lyons and Toxic Attraction walking backstage to send us to break.
Back from commercial we see Wendy tossing in her sleep and dreaming of Tiffany Stratton’s mean girl promo on her before her dream turns into a hype reel for her.
She wakes up and wanders off into the bathroom and brushes her teeth and says she gets under your skin to win and she’ll see Stratton at Great American Bash.
Commentary confirms that the Creed Brothers will defend the tag titles against Damon Kemp and Roderick Strong next week as well.
Mandy Rose vs. Nikkita Lyons
Collar and elbow, Lyons slings her around a few times, biel across the ring, three-point stance into a Stinger Splash and another biel! Mandy bails to the floor and regroups with the Toxics and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Rose raining grounded punches down, hamstring kick sets up an Achilles lock, Lyons fights out with forearms and mounts her for punches of her own. Mandy jawing at her, piefacing her, Nikkita blocks a punch, rises to her feet and decks her with an elbow!
Lariat and a chest kick, another kick, Stinger splash, short release German suplex, cover for two! Mandy off the top with a missile dropkick, Lyons with leg kicks and a crescent kick and the Toxics attack...
Nikkita Lyons wins by disqualification, presumably.
Post-match, Rose slaps Nikkita across the face and jaws at her, but Cora and Roxanne attack from behind and stand tall with Lyons!
Solo Sikoa is backstage with Apollo Crews complaining about his loss last week. Crews says he’s going to get Waller back and he should hold his head high because he’s got something special.
Xyon Quinn rolls up to pick a fight and Apollo says he’s got this. He asks if they’ve met, and Quinn says a lot has changed since Crews was last here, and he’s the perfect WWE Superstar. Apollo tells Xyon he must think his future looks bright, but where he’s standing, not so much.
We see Bron Breakker and Cameron Grimes arriving at the arena and we go to break.
Back from commercial we get another JD McDonagh vignette.
Wade Barrett is in the ring to preside over our face-to-face for Bron Breakker vs. Cameron Grimes next week.
Bron respectfully tells Barrett they’ve got it and he clears the ring.
Breakker begins by saying he’s had the honor of defending the title against a lot of great superstars but Grimes is different because he’s got everything to gain and nothing to lose. Cameron says it might seem like that, but if Bron loses he’s still Bron Breakker and he gets brought up to Raw or SmackDown and probably gets put on SummerSlam.
Grimes lost his North American Championship and instead of going after it he put all his chips in on Bron, and he doesn’t have a back-up plan. If he doesn’t win the title, that’s it for him. But then Breakker knows about back-up plans, actually, because he always wanted to play football, failed, and then called his daddy and got a spot in NXT.
Breakker says he can say what he likes with his cheap suit and fake smile, because next week he’s going to the moon and he’s not gonna like what he finds there when he gets speared in half. Grimes says unlike those guys on the field he’ll get up every time he gets knocked down.
Bron says that’s fine, he’ll keep knocking him down and make him regret challenging for the title and maybe when he’s done he can call his buddy Ted DiBiase and ask him what to do next. Cameron says he’s bigger and stronger and faster but he doesn’t have heart and he certainly doesn’t have Grimes’ heart.
But it’s not his fault, it’s genetics, and his daddy didn’t have heart either, that’s why he never won a world title. Bron’s had enough, he goes for the military press but Cameron slips out and shoves him into the turnbuckles! He throws Breakker at the turnbuckles again and the ring breaks and Bron’s bicep is all screwed up.
Grimes tells him he couldn’t beat him at 100% and he’s not at 100% now before telling the medics to make sure he’s okay so he can lose the title.
That’s the show, folks.
