- Ricochet out with a mic, says that it's his mission to make sure people remember and talk about him. He continues that there is one thing on his mind (and it's not socks! The fans were kind of ripping on his dress attire tonight) it's the NXT Championship. Out comes The Veleveteen Dream and says "No!" and wonders who gave Ricochet the authority to ask for title matches. "Babe, I'm gonna need you to take a step back." He says Ricochet was right, there is one man, one experience, and Ricochet is looking at him.
"No matter how you flip or flop, you better make sure you land in the very back of the line, behind the dream." Ricochet says he gets he's the new guy around here and knows who Velveteen Dream is. Ricochet reminds Dream of his loss to Aleister Black. "Dream, you're good, I give you that, but you ain't Ricochet." Ricochet says he's here to steal Dream's spotlight and show. Dream returns fire with anything you can do the Dream can do better. Ricochet says to prove it and steps up to him. Dream looks to head out and tries to charge Ricochet, but drops down to the mat and slowly backs out of the ring.

Winner: EC3 via Pinfall
- Post-match, Cathy Kelley asks EC3 about his loss after the ladder match at TakeOver. EC3 says it's not about the loss, but it about what he does after. With his superior mind and body, he'll win over and over until NXT becomes NX3.
- Last week, Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch catch up with Pete Dunne and let him know just because they helped out Dunne, that doesn't mean they like him. Lorcan calls him a piece of garbage and all three agree that is, but there's three of them and they need to take care of Undisputed era.

The referee tries to get her to back off, but Baszler ends up choking out Borne as Kai just bails out of the ring. Baszler stares down Kai the whole time like a psycho. Kai runs off to the back.
- Moments ago, Kelley is backstage and talks with Kai right after her match. Kelley notes how Kai basically froze when Baszler came out to the ring. Kai says she doesn't really know what happened, but Baszler shows up and Kai just stands there frightened. Baszler asks her to do something, but Kai doesn't do anything. Baszler then says "That's what I thought" and heads off. Suddenly, someone is laughing, Kai turns around and it's Nikki Cross.

All four wrestlers star swinging away on each other. War Raiders get the upper hand. Rowe lifts and throws Hanson on Otis in the corner. Rowe is brought back in, couple big strikes.
