This week’s NXT opens with a look back at Adam Cole’s shocking return last week, where he attacked Gargano, Dunne, and O’Reilly, before confronting Karrion Kross. Tonight all five men meet in the ring before their huge showdown on Sunday.

Theory takes him down but Lorcan quickly turns it into a headscissors. They exchange European uppercuts and Lorcan goes to a leg submission but Theory kicks him off and hits a clothesline in the corner.

Lorcan goes out and they exchange on the floor until Oney drops him. Both men are catching their breath when Pete Dunne comes stomping down to ringside.

By the time he reaches the ring, MSK join him and Legado don’t want none. Santos says he’s going to take the North American Championship and his boys are going to take the Tag Titles. How about they do it all at the same time, a 3v3 match with all the belts on the line. Reed and MSK accept to the winner takes all match.
Hit Row come out while the others are still at ringside and Swerve stares at Escobar but they walk past. Hit Row stand in the ring and talk trash with MSK and Reed. Swerve will be in action, next!
Dain forces Swerve back and he hangs through the ropes to force the break. Dain takes Swerve down with short-arm shoulder tackles and a fireman’s carry. Swerve kicks him back, then slaps his face.

We see Poppy arriving at the arena. Candace LeRae and Indi Hartwell are backstage for an interview and asked why they don’t like Poppy. Candace says people are more interested in Poppy than them and that’s why. Indi just talks about Dexter Lumis and she thinks he’s still in love with her. They walk off separate ways.
Cameron Grimes is trying to prove his worth to Dibiase, smoking cigars, drinking wine, and getting massages but it’s clear he doesn’t love it. Grimes says he’s focused on taking the mllion dollar legacy to the moon and he drives off in a nice car as well.
Mercedes Martinez comes out but she gets attacked by Xia Li on the ramp. Li beats her around ringside, then puts her inside. Mercedes starts firing back and drops her with a big boot.

Breezango are back and interviewed about Imperium. Fandango asks why Walter is so angry all the time, considering he’s been UK Champion for like nine years. He and Breeze argue about the names of the Imperium goons and say they seem to have sour grapes. They say they’re going to make sure Aichner and Barthel upset Walter once again.
Triple H, William Regal, and Poppy are backstage. HHH and Regal are praising Poppy’s music backstage and The Game asks her when her new EP drops and she lifts out her phone and says “right now”. She presses a button and releases her new music and Triple H plugs it. Dexter Lumis appears with a drawing of Poppy and he takes it, then hugs him. Indi Hartwell sees them hugging and runs off crying. Triple H and Regal look shocked and HHH says “well, this is awkward.”
We see Cameron Grimes and LA Knight arriving at the arnea in their fancy cars. They argue about who the richer man is and who’s better suited to carry Dibiase’s legacy. Ted Dibiase is in the ring and he invites Grimes and Knight to join him. Grimes says they’ve both done a great job but it’s time for them to literally climbt the ladder of success. A solid gold ladder descends from the ceiling and Dibiase says it’s a ladder match on Sunday.
Knight says it doesn’t matter to him what type of match it is because there’s only one man fit to carry the legacy and that’s because it’s his game. Grimes says Knight is right, he’s a little smelly and he’s a hillbilly living on a hilltop. Ted says it isn’t all about the fame and money, it’s about what happens in the ring and when Grimes is in the ring he cannot be beat. You can take his money and his fame because he’ll be taking the million dollar legacy to the moon.
Grimes starts climbing the ladder and says he doesn’t see what he’s reaching for and Dibiase instructs his handlers to bring a briefcase inside. He stands over the briefcase and tells them he expects to fight, scratch and crawl, use everthing they can to get this; the Million Dollar Championship title! Dibiase laughs like a madman as Grimes and Knight talk trash.
Gibson starts against Grey and takes him down with a front facelock. Grey fights back and makes a tag to Jiro, who takes a headlock. Gibson shoots him off but gets caught with a forearm. Jiro goes to the apron and hits a headscissors to Gibson. Drake gets the tag and they go to work on Ikeman, using quick tags and isolating him.
Thatcher and Ciampa come down the ramp and sit on chairs to watch the amtch. The Grizzled Veterans get distracted and Grey gets a tag. He comes in hot and takes them both down with lariats, then a springboard crossbody to Drake. Grey wants a springboard Unprettier to Drake but gets tossed off and clotheslined. Gibson gets the tag as Drake knocks Jiro off the apron, then he and Gibson hit Ticket to Mayhem for the win.
After the match, Gibson gets a microphone and says Thatcher and Ciampa just linger like a bad smell. They’ve told them they’re done with them, they proved they’re better than them. Ciampa says what they don’t realise is, they won’t get a title shot until they can go through him and toothless Timmy.
Gibson calls them stupid and Ciampa and Thatcher jump up and throw their chairs at them. Gibson says it’s fine, they can have a fight if they want it but it will be tornado rules. Ciampa says two things; first, they love tornado’s; and two, they odn’t need to wait until next week. Ciampa and Thatcher storm the ring but GYV bail. Thatcher screams at the that he can’t wait to break their limbs.
Candace LeRae comes to the ring by herself. She says e’s so sick of Poppy and the fans chant for the singer. Candace says she’s always stealing the spotlight and now she’s stole Indi’s man, and she can’t act like she didn’t know because everyone knows “Index” is a thing. Candace invites her to the ring to settle things.

Kross snatches the microphone and says Regal isn’t in charge and he’s definitely not in control. This is his show. O’Reilly comes out and says Kross clearly has very thin skin and he’s insecure because he knows it’s only a matter of time until a guy like him takes the title from him.
Johnny Gargano makes his appearance and stands on the announce desk, mocking O’Reilly’s promo skills. Gargano tries to goad Kross into attacking O’Reilly while saying he’s not in his league.
