This week’s NXT opens with a look back at last week’s Spring Breakin’ show, where Bron Breakker defeated Joe Gacy but ended-up being swarmed by Gacy’s druids.
Perez makes her entrance but stops on the ramp and points behind Toxic Attraction where Wendy Choo is on the top rope and she takes all three of them out with a crossbody. The match gets underway with Perez and Dolan and Roxanne takes control and keeps Gigi away from her corner. Choo tags in and hits a double team with Perez before tagging right back out.
Jayne blind-tags in as Dolan gets rolled-up and she hits a neckbreaker to Perez. Jayne screams before knocking Perez down, then grabs a submission. Perez hits Choo on the apron, then turns back but Roxanne rolls under a clothesline and makes the tag. Choo with some clotheslines and a series of suplexes to Jayne. Both Dolan and Jayne get sent to the outside and Perez hits both with a flying clothesline off the apron.
We return from the break to see Jacey get a near-fall on Choo. Jayne grabs a submission but Wendy fights up and makes a hot tag to Perez. Gigi comes n the other side an Roxanne takes her down with a series of clotheslines. Roxanne lands a tilt-a-whirl Russian leg sweep for a near-fall.

Roxanne goes for a code red on Dolin but Jacey lands a superkick on Wendy for the pinfall victory.
After the match Mandy, Gigi and Jacy group-up and beat Wendy Choo down before posing with their belts.
We see a video from earlier this week of Tiffany Stratton taking Grayson Waller shopping to make him feel better. She says it isn’t fair what happened him with Chase University last week. Waller says they’re going to have a teachable moment because there’s nothing more dangerous than the Grayson Waller effect.
Roderick Strong is training backstage when The Creed Brothers come in. They aren’t happy about him getting involved last week. They say he didn’t have to and they’re going to get another opportunity and he better stay out of the way. Strong doesn’t see what he did was wrong. He says he’s brought a new member into Diamond Mine, a greco Roman wrestler and a man who will be a game-changer for Diamond Mine: Damon Kemp. Julius and Brutus tell Roddy that new members should be a group decision and walk off angry.
Joe Gacy comes to the ring with two hooded figures. Gacy says he opened his heart to anyone seeking inclusivity, but two stood above the rest. They were committed to the cause. His cause has been received. The fans chant “shut the Hell up”. Gacy says these two men are the faces of change, and they are part of his expansion. And expansion starts one man at a time, so he’s inviting Bron Breakker to join his movement. He assures the result will be eternal joy. Affliction and hardship await those who oppose.
Andre Chase and Bodhi Hayward are backstage warming up when Sarray walks in. She speaks in Japanese and the full subtitles are already there before she speaks… despite this being live. She says she can’t stand Grayson Waller or Tiffany Stratton, so how about they have a mixed tag match tonight? Andre doesn’t know Japanese but Bodhi does and he translates. Andre is impressed that Chase U has a foreign language department. He agrees to the match and Sarray says they will win.
Ivy Nile is hosting a challenge to a bunch of trainees. She wants them to do push-ups and if they can’t compete they have to leave. She does over 80 and one guy walks out.

Cora Jade is backstage for an interview. She says she is nervous to face Natalya, she’s a legend. But Natalya isn’t facing the same kid she took photos with a decade ago, the same girl she text last year, or the same women she slapped last month. She’s ready to step-up to the next level.
Solo Sikoa makes his way to the ring. The fans chant his name and Sikoa says “you damn right”. He says this is supposed to be Carmelo and Trick’s segmenet, but it’s his time now. Solo says they want to talk about the North American Championship but we know what happened last week. He’s going to be watching if Melo gets his shot against Grimes, and he wants the winner. He doesn’t care who wins.
The North American Champion, Cameron Grimes comes out. He says he respects Solo and understands he wants another shot at his title. It’s going to be him and Carmelo Hayes at In Your House, but as soon as he’s done with with him Solo has his word that he’s next in line. Grimes looks for a handshake but Sikoa walks past him.

Sikoa lifts the North American Championship but Grimes snatches it away.
Legado Del Fantasma find the empty SUV outside. Escobar makes a call to Tony D’Angelo and says whoever kidnapped his brother is in big trouble. D’Angelo plays dumb and says his right-hand man went missing too. So maybe the same person took them. Santos says he doubts it because A.J Galante is in rough shape. D’Angelo gets angry and says if he touches Galante again he will kill him. Tony cools down and tells Santos he will allow Cruz out of the trunk if he agrees to meet next week. Escobar agrees and says “fu$k you” before hanging up.
