They play a recap of Jordan Myles winning the breakout tournament and confronting Adam Cole, hyping up the NXT Championship match for later tonight.
Breezango vs. Chase Parker and Matt Martel
Breezango come to the ring in full Fashion Police gear, with a fresh new entrance and new tag team music. Mauro Ronallo hypes up the team of Parker and Martel as the unknown duo hug for an uncomfortably long time.
Fandango starts off the match against Martel. Martel and Parker dominate Dango until Dango hits a leg drop onto Parker and tags in Breeze. Breeze remains in firm control of Martel and Parker until some underhanded tactics give Parker and Martel back on the offensive.
Fandango gets the hot tag from Breeze and tag team offense from Tyler Breeze and Fandango hit their new tag team finishing move, the Fashion Faux Pas, and get the 3 count victory.
Footage from earlier in the day shows Jordan Myles and Keith Lee arriving at the arena. Myles looks clearly nervous about his match.
Just as we are about to cut to commercial break, we cut to backstage instead, where Io Shirai is pulled off of Candace LaRae after hitting her repeatedly with a kendo stick. Then, we go to commercial.
After commercial, Cameron Grimes is shown backstage having a breakdown after not winning the Breakout Tournament. He says that his new goal is to not just be #1 contender, but to be the champion. Then he puts on a black top hat and walks away.
NXT North American Champion Velveteen Dream vs. Kona Reeves (Non-Title Match)
Reeves and Dream are a surprisingly good team, as both are relatively technically sound, and their characters are almost like two sides of the same coin. Dream and Reeves use showmanship to try and get in each other’s heads, but Velveteen Dream ultimately gets the upper hand.
Reeves takes control back, but Velveteen Dream reverses a back body drop and gets back in control of Reeves. Kona reverses a sunset flip into a pin but grabs the rope for leverage. Reeves gets caught by the ref and the ref stops the pin.
While Reeves argues with the ref, Velveteen hits Kona with two superkicks and a Dream Valley Driver, then pins The Finest for a 3 count.
Winner: Velveteen Dream
After the match, Roderick Strong comes on TitanTron and taunts Velveteen Dream, showing Velveteen that Strong has set Dream’s couch on fire. Velveteen Dream appears more shaken up than ever, as we go to commercial break.
Back from commercial, we get a recap of Rhea Ripley confronting Shayna Baszler from last week and a hype package showing off how dominant Rhea Ripley was in NXT UK. Then, we are told that Rhea Ripley will go against Shayna Baszler next week.
Bianca Belair vs. Taynara Conti
Taynara is not intimidated by Bianca and even hits her with a monkey flip into a pinning combination for not even a one count. Belair’s strength and experience eventually give her the advantage against the more agile Taynara.
Taynara’s aggressive side comes out and she goes back on the offensive, but Bianca gets a rollup on Taynara for a two count. Taynara catches Belair with a superkick and gets a two count of her own.
Taynara takes Belair to the outside and goes for a crossbody off of the apron, but Belair catches her and hits her with a fallaway slam to the outside. Both women get back in the ring when the referee gets to a 9 count.
After laying in some heavy offense, Belair gets Taynara in the torture rack and hits her with a KOD for a 3 count and the pinfall victory.
Winner: Bianca Belair
Backstage, Adam Cole is shown looking very pleased with himself, NXT Championship over his shoulder, and then we are told that Jordan Myles vs. Adam Cole is next after commercial.
Next week: Johnny Gargano addresses his future on the black and gold brand. Also, William Regal announces that, in 2 weeks, we will have a triple threat match to crown the #1 contender for the NXT Women’s Championship. The contests are Mia Yim, Bianca Belair, and Io Shirai.
NXT Champion Adam Cole vs. Jordan Myles for the NXT Championship
The Panama City Playboy comes down to the ring all alone, suspiciously without any of the other members of the Undisputed Era. However, Adam Cole still looks supremely confident, as always.
The crowd chants “Jordan” before the match begins, but the chant dies out early and the crowd is split between Myles and Cole. Adam Cole’s cockiness is getting into Myles’ head, and he gets Myles in a headlock early. Myles fights back a little, but Cole takes Myles’ offense off the rails and goes right back into a series of headlocks.
Myles finally gets in some good offense after a hip toss and out-speeds Adam Cole, leading to a flurry of offense from Myles, but Cole again derails that offense before Myles can build up any momentum, slamming Myles into a ring post face first.
A hard irish whip into the corner takes Myles down. Myles fights back with some strikes, but Cole whips him into the middle rope and locks in a head scissors onto Myles. Myles eventually gets to the bottom rope to break the hold. Cole delivers some smack talk to Myles while Myles tries to fight back. They trade blows back and forth, but Myles eventually uses his speed and flips to get an advantage on Cole. Myles hits a diving crossbody for a 2 count, and then a German suplex for another 2 count.
Myles looks to take to the sky with a tope, but Cole cuts him off with a big boot and takes control of Myles once again. Cole his a backstabber for a 2 count. Cole looks for Panama Sunrise, but Myles avoids it. Cole gets Myles in a figure four leglock, but Myles gets to the bottom rope, forcing a break.
Myles goes for a dive from the top, but Cole catches him with a kick, then hits an Ushigoroshi for a close 2 count. Myles uses his speed to hit a PK on Adam Cole, and follows it up with a tope. After getting Cole back in the ring, Myles splashes onto Cole from the top rope for another 2 count.
Myles goes back to the top rope, but Cole gets out of the way. Myles takes Cole down and goes for another frog splash, but Cole gets his knees up during the splash, taking Myles down. Cole misses a Last Shot, and Myles goes for a roll-up, but Cole kicks out and hits a superkick. Cole then hits the Last Shot on a stunned Myles for the 3 count pinfall victory.
Winner: Adam Cole
After the match, Cole celebrates at the top of the ramp. Jordan Myles is helped up by the referee and begins his walk up the ramp as NXT goes off the air.
