4) Angel Garza vs “Gentleman” Jack Gallagher

NXT Cruiserweight champion, Lio Rush, is on commentary for this match as the two wrestlers in the ring are possible future contenders for his championship. Angel Garza launches Jack Gallagher to the outside of the ring with a Monkey Flip. Gallagher believes he has Garza scouted as he attempts to duck out of the way of the Suicide Dive, but Garza pumps the breaks and connects with a chop across the back. Back into the ring, Gallagher reverses out of a Powerbomb and connects with a Standing Headbutt that rocks Garza into a corner. Gallagher goes for a Running Dropkick into the corner, but Garza moves out of the way, slamming Gallagher stomach first onto the canvas.

Immediately after, Angel Garza does a Springboard Moonsault from the middle rope onto Jack Gallagher for the pinfall.

Winner: Angel Garza

5) Team Kick vs The Horsewomen of MMA

This match is to determine the number one contenders for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Marina Shafir gets the advantage of Dakota Kai in an Armbar, but Kai breaks the hold and connects with a Scorpion Kick before tagging in Tegan Nox. Jessamyn Duke tags in, but Nox delivers a Chokeslam to The Horsewomen of MMA. Nox hits a Diving Crossbody on Duke, but Shafir breaks up the pin attempt. Kai takes Shafir out with a Bicycle Kick and Nox hits the Shiniest Wizard on Duke to get credit for the pinfall.

Winners: Team Kick

Team Kick will face the Kabuki Warriors next week on NXT for the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships. Post-match, Asuka and Kairi Sane are on the video screen cutting a promo in mostly Japanese. Sane does say, “Next week, you have no chance.”

Main Event) “Limitless” Keith Lee vs Dominik Dijakovic vs “The Messiah of the Backbreaker” Roderick Strong (c)

This match is for the NXT North American Championship. Throughout this match, Keith Lee and Dominik Dijakovic impress the NXT crowd with their feats of athleticism. Dijakovic goes for a Sunset Flip from the apron to the outside on Lee, but Lee catches him out of mid-air in a Powerbomb position. Roderick Strong follows with a Dropkick between the ropes to Dijakovic, dropping Lee under the weight and momentum. Another great spot was when Lee did a Powerbomb to Dijakovic from the top rope while Dijakovic had Strong up in a Suplex position!

Dominik Dijakovic had a great opportunity to get the win with an Avalanche Chokebomb on Keith Lee, but Lee kicked out at two. Lee goes to the outside of the ring and Dijakovic hits a Diving Corkscrew Senton, intended for Lee, but to Roderick Strong. Lee then follows up with a Tope Con Hilo on Dijakovic that gets the NXT crowd to erupt. The momentum is on Lee’s side as he hits an Avalanche Sit Out Powerbomb on Dijakovic, but as soon as that impact is made, Strong hits the Sick Kick on Lee for the pinfall.

Winner AND STILL NXT North American Champion: Roderick Strong

The Undisputed Era comes down to the ring to celebrate with Roderick Strong, but that turns into a four-on-one attack on Keith Lee quickly. Tommaso Ciampa makes an appearance, dragging his crutch behind him. He gets into the ring to face off against the Undisputed Era, then Johnny Gargano makes his entrance to stand alongside Ciampa. The former DIY tag team is facing four-on-two odds before Finn Balor makes an entrance to make a stand with Ciampa and Gargano. Just when it looks like Balor, Gargano, and Ciampa are about to scrap with the Undisputed Era, Balor connects with a Pele Kick on Gargano.

A very effective heel turn for Finn Balor happens and the NXT crowd is as stunned as Tommaso Ciampa is. The Undisputed Era swarms Ciampa and Balor brought Gargano to the outside of the ring. A Shotgun Dropkick connects on Gargano, sending him into the guardrail so hard that the guardrail falls over into the crowd. Balor then delivers 1916 to Gargano at the bottom of the entrance ramp. The NXT crowd is passionately booing Balor.

After all of this, it is uncertain if Finn Balor is now joining the Undisputed Era. All four of the Undisputed Era members stand alongside each other in the ring, doing their stable hand gesture over a fallen Tommaso Ciampa. Balor doesn’t do it back, but does a double gun hand gesture to Johnny Gargano, calling back to his time as the original leader of the Bullet Club. WWE NXT goes off the air.
