Winner: Jaxson Ryker via Pinfall
- Vignette for Velveteen Dream, who talks about his progress in 2018 and how the spotlight is now on him. We see a bunch of clips from his matches from the past year. Dream says if you don't believe the hype, don't listen to him, listen to Hulk Hogan, Shawn Michaels, John Cena, and Triple H (tweets are shown with their comments about Dream).
- Last week, we see the end of Johnny Gargano vs. Aleister Black where NXT Champion Tommaso Ciampa got involved to help Gargano win. The two former tag team partners would hit their dual kick to finish off Black.
- Random location, Ciampa says he is a man of his word and although he feels like he's talking to a wall most of the time, last week he felt vindicated when Gargano followed his lead. Gargano ended up winning against Black and maybe Gargano deserves a shot at a title the NXT North American Title. Ciampa talks to him about how they were two kids who came into NXT without contracts and the upcoming TakeOver could be their TakeOver as dual champs. "Two kids taking over the world, Johnny, the possibilities are endless."
- Next week: nominees for the NXT year-end awards, also, Matt Riddle vs. Kassius Ohno.
