- The Undisputed Era (Adam Cole, Bobby Fish, Kyle O'Reilly, and Roderick Strong) head out to the ring. Cole on the mic first, gloats some about all the gold that's in the group. Fish says they've been thrown to the wolves over and over, but the Undisputed Era remain one step ahead every single time. Strong on the mic now, crowd gives him a pop. Strong says everyone wants to know "Why Rodddy why?" He says for once he did something for himself and at TakeOver he made the best decision of his career. Says he could have won the titles with Pete Dunne, but how long until Dunne turns on him? All he cares about is his UK Championship.

He continues that it's always been Roddy vs. The World, so why not fight together and take over NXT. O'Reilly gets his chance and says the group won't be back in a corner and they can't be stopped. The times are changing and we're leaving everyone in the dust. Cole back on the mic and says he's facing Oney Lorcan for his title and he's going to do it on his own because (as he laughs) he doesn't need any help beating Lorcan.
Adam Cole (c) vs. Oney Lorcan (NXT North American Championship)
Crowd with a "Oney!" chant as we get started. Cole with the taped up ribs for this match. Oney tries for an abdominal stretch, but Cole quickly gets to the ropes and bails out of the ring. Cole wants a timeout, ref starts count, Cole rolls in and out of the ring to get more time. Lorcan chase after Cole into the ring, shoulder block into Cole, but gets dropped and Cole stomps away on his opponent. Bicycle kick, punches to the face of his grounded opponent.
Lorcan recovers, big kick, running blockbuster, cover, two. Lorcan with a european uppercut, Cole returns fire with a kick, but Lorcan picks up and drops Cole over the top rope. Lorcan heads up to the top rope, but Undisputed Era heads with a doctor to check on Cole. The referee is distracted and Strong with a suplex on the apron on the other side of the ring. Cole gets back in the ring, kick to the head, pin, 1-2-3.
Winner: Adam Cole via Pinfall

- Last week, recap of Candice LaRae defeating Zelina Vega. Almas and Vega are now on SmackDown.
- Next week: Candice LaRae vs. Bianca Belair.
- Vignette of Belair being the "EST" of NXT. We see a bunch of clips of her training, previous matches, and how she whacks opponents with her hair.

Dozivic is able to tag out and Knight goes to work on Moss. Sabbatelli back on the apron, hand is reached out, Moss gets to him and Sabbatelli backs away! He heads to the back as Heavy Machinery take advantage by nailing the compactor for the 1-2-3.

- Vignette for a bunch of women wrestlers: Nikki Cross looks to come for the title. Aliyah talks some trash about Shayna Baszler and wishes she could ride the coattails of a best friend (doesn't actually say Ronda Rousey). Kairi Sane says she knows Baszler's weaknesses.
- Backstage, Cathy Kelley talked with Dakota Kai who's still upset and scared about having to deal with Shayna Baszler. Baszler suddenly shows up and Kai looks super nervous. Baszler says Kai looked to follow her dreams to NXT, but the women division run by Baszler is Kai's worst nightmare.
- Vignette for "The Finest" Kona Reeves, who will debut next week.
- More vignettes with women talking about Shayna. Lacey Evans say it's time for a classy champion. Vanessa Borne says she'll be the one to beat the champion. LaRae says she has what Baszler doesn't have, heart.

- Before the match can even get started between Aleister Black and Johnny Gargano can get started, Tommaso Ciampa attacks Johnny Gargano on the stage. He throws Gargano into the announce table and the entire announce team bails. He puts Gargano up on the table, yells at him "You think I'm done!?" Gargano starts to fight back and hits a superkick on Ciampa.
Gargano leaps off the table and swings away on his former tag partner. The two continue to fight on the stage until Ciampa kicks Gargano between the legs. Ciampa lines up Gargano and hits a hard running knee to Gargano into the stage screen. Ciampa then picks up Gargano and drops him down through two tables! Candice LaRae comes out to check on Gargano and a stretcher is brought out for him.
Gargano is stretchered out to the back as the crowd claps for him. Camera follow him all the way to the outside as they take him to an ambulance. Aleister Black walks by to look at Gargano being loaded into the ambulance. Camera pans up and we see Ciampa standing up high watching the vehicle drive off. Black heads to the ring and gets a mic. He starts to call out Ciampa, but out comes Sanity. Young on the mic, "Johnny Gargano provided hope, chaos took away that hope tonight." He continues that out of the chaos there will be greatest and sanity. Black cuts him off and asks him if Young is looking for this while holding up the title. Young nods and said then let's do this.

Young goes to work on Black and gets most of the offense early on. Couple strikes leads to a pin, two-count. Black with a knee to the midsection and Young heads to the floor.
