Wes Lee is hanging out backstage and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Apollo Crews cuts a promo about his 2/3 falls match at Vengeance Day and his battle plan to defeat Carmelo Hayes.
Wes Lee makes his entrance and gets on the mic.
He says we’re four days from NXT being back on the road and they’re swinging through Charlotte, North Carolina for Vengeance Day. It’s a big day, literally for him, because Donovan Dijak is his biggest challenge. Dijak claims to be serving justice, but ultimately he just wants the title on Lee’s shoulder.
Saturday will be tough, he’s gonna take an asswhooping, but the Cardiac Kid will rise as your North American Champion.
Enter Donovan Dijak.
He tells Lee to soak it all in and enjoy these moments because these are his final days as NXT North American Champion. It was a real empassioned speech he gave but it’s not gonna make a bit of difference, and he was too stupid to just hand the title over while he could.
So on Saturday he’s gonna be staring at the biggest, baddest man in the entire locker room, and he’s gonna rip the title from his hands. Wes says that’s exactly what he’s gonna have to do, and it’s easier said than done. He didn’t win the title by accident, he fought for it, every trial and tribulation.
When he felt he couldn’t go any further, the support of the fans showed him he could reach levels he never dreamed of, and on Saturday, Dijak won’t just be fighting he’ll, he’ll be fighting everyone on the Wes Side. Donovan says he might be fighting for them, but they damn sure won’t be fighting for him.
Enter Von Wagner, with Robert Stone with him.
Stone says Dijak ain’t the biggest and baddest, because he must have forgotten about Von Wagner. Wagner says the only injustice is the way he’s been overlooked, and Dijak says he has no issue with Von. Lee stirs the pot and says come Tuesday we’ll need a new number one contender and suggests a match between Wagner and Dijak tonight where Von can establish son bonafides.
Donovan shoves Wes aside and starts hammering Wagner with punches! Von runs him off, referees swarm to separate them, and we have a match!

We see Roxanne Perez and her challengers getting mic’d up for an interview and we go to break.
Back from commercial, Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams are interviewed backstage.
Trick says he’s shaking like booty meat on a Friday night, but not because he’s scared, it’s just cold in here. But he is worried about Apollo Crews, and Hayes tells him to come to Vengeance Day anwyay. He says Apollo can’t touch the level he’s on, and until he beats him 2/3 falls, he can never be Him.
Now we go to the satellite interview featuring Roxanne Perez, Gigi Dolin, and Jacy Jayne.
Perez talks about being in the Royal Rumble and Jayne mocks her and says she’s not going to WrestleMania, she’s going to lose her title on Saturday. Roxanne says they act like they’re best friends but they said a lot of truth during their fake split last week, and the Toxics cut her legs out from under her mocking her relentlessly.
They say it’s two against one on Saturday and her fifteen minutes of fame are over. Perez storms off and the Toxics finish the interview and they’re confident that one of them is gonna walk out as champion, although they can’t quite agree on who.
