This week’s NXT opens with some highlights from the In Your House premium live event on Saturday.
The new North Amercian Champion, Carmelo Hayes, comes to the ring alongside Trick Williams. Trick says things have returned to normal with Hayes back with his title. Hayes says he needs to give props to Cameron Grimes for their match at In Your House and pushing him to his limit. But he achieved what he said to do. He doesn’t chase dreams, dreams chase him. He says he is the most illustrious Champion and the fans wish they could be him.
Solo Sikoa comes out and the fans chant his name. Solo congratulates Hayes but says nobody wants to hear him. Sikoa says this is NXT where they fight more than talk. So he’s going to keep things short and sweet: everybody knows he’s got next. Trick says Sikoa made that deal with Grimes, that’s no longer relevant. Hayes says Sikoa bet on the wrong man. Sikoa tells them to look in his eyes and says they don’t see any fear because he has their number.
Grayson Waller comes out to the boos of the crowd. He says Sikoa isn’t famous enough to have Carmelo’s number, and if he did he would let it go to voicemail. Waller says he doesn’t care what blood Sikoa has, who his daddy is, his brothers, his cousin, or anyone else. Nobody likes him around here. Sikoa says “news flash idiot: shut the Hell up!” Sikoa says he fights solo in the ring but he has the fans. He says Waller wants some, then turns and hits Trick and Hayes. The numbers game get the better of Sikoa and Waller leaves with Trick and Melo.
The D’Angelo family arrive at the arena, Legado Del Fantasma in tow. Tony asks if they arranged the meetings that he wanted and they say yes. He wants a meeting with city hall. He then tells Escobar he needs him to get out of his suit and into some gear because he’s arranged a little match for him tonight.

Before getting inside, Wagner grabs Jensen’s arm with the cast on and slams it into the apron. Wagner gets in the ring and Henley is arguing with the referee. Jensen slips the cast off and throws it to Briggs who hits Wagner with it! Briggs with a clothesline for the win.
Solo Sikoa is in the trainer’s room and Mackenzie asks him how he’s feeling. Sikoa says this isn’t one of those times when you get your revenge a week or a month down the line. He wants Grayson and Hayes tonight. Mackenzie asks if he’s asking for a handicap match and he says he doesn’t care, he just knows he’s going to leave them both lying by the end of the night.

Quin n says that, where he’s from, you don’t call that a win, you call it luck. He wants a rematch, and when he’s done Sanga better be nearby to help lift Lee’s unconscious body.
The NXT Champion, Bron Breakker, makes his way to the ring. Bron says In Your House was an intense physical battle. Gacy challenged him mentally and physically, but no matter what he did he couldn’t take that title from him. But it wasn’t just about him, NXT is special and he couldn’t let Gacy have his way with it. Bron says he could see that everone backstage wants a shot at him, so the question is: who’s going to step up to the challenge?

Apollo says he left NXT way too soon and he left a lot on the table, so he is here to make and correct history. He envisions him and Breakker making history together down the line. They shake hands.
