Solo SIkoa comes to the ring. His opponent, Grayson Waller, is out second and he has a microphone. He says he knows the fans love Solo, because they’re solo too, a bunch of losers with no friends.

We’re back live and Waller ducks a clothesline to deliver a leg lariat for a two-count. Waller connects with some knees to the head and drops Sikoa. He wastes a lot of time going to the top rope and moving to the rope that Solo is able to jump up and shove him off. Solo goes out and clobbers Waller on the floor, then gets him back in the ring.

Wes Lee comes to the ring and the chant his name. He thanks them and says it’s a blessing to still be here and get the love from them. He says he really needs this, especially after the last three months. He went from the highest of highs to the lowest of lows. From a two-time NXT Tag Team Champion with his best friend, his brother, to having their world explode.
Lee continues that, while his world crumbled down, all he could find was pain and anger. It consumed him and he wasn’t being himself. From Xyon Quinn to Sanga, he was trying to prove himslef and show that he can stand on his own two feet. Trick Williams walks out and tells Lee to shut up. Trick says Lee left his brother behind and he’s not the friend he thinks he is.
Lee says Trick has no idea, the way they had to rise together to reach NXT, let alone how he has stood by his brother. But he understands that Trick doesn’t get that, because he’s more than happy to lay second fiddle. And seeing how much hype Trick gives Carmelo, he wonders if he has anything left for himself. He tells Trick to get in the ring and prove otherwise, but Williams says he’ll just do what Lee’s friend did and leave him hanging.
Tiffany Stratton is sitting down to talk about Wendy Choo. She says she thinks Choo is tragic. You just feel bad for the people that have to be around that kind of moron. Just look at how she carries herself, then look at Choo. She’s never been first place anything. Has she ever even been in a gym? Stratton says she blames Choo for costing her a match and ruining her grear. She tells her to stay away or she’ll put her to sleep for good.

Ikemen Jiro walks up laughing and says he knows Vinci has style, but does he have strong style?

Toxic Attraction make their way to the ring. Rose says Roxanne Perez and Cora Jade are losers. They’re walking around like they’ve done something. Perez thinks all her dreams have come true and she’s about to take the NXT Women’s Championship. Gigi says this isn’t a video game, it isn’t a Disney movie. Perez is not Cinderella. Jayne says Perez can asks Cora what it’s like to face them because she knows what it is to fold under pressure.
Roxanne and Cora come out to the ramp. Rose says Perez needs to realise a couple of wins aren’t going to get her a title shot. Don’t be delusional. She doesn’t want to cash-in her contract on her. Perez says she does feel on top of the world but that’s because she knows she’s earned every bit of her dream. And dreams are better when you can share them with your friend. That’s why, as nice as it would be to challenge Rose, her and Jade want to face Gigi and Jacy for the Women’s Tag Team Titles.
Kayden Carter and Katana Chance come out and tell them to cool it with the title shot talk. They aren’t done chasing the Tag Team Titles. Cora says we all saw In Your House and they seem pretty done. Katana says Jade and Perez are really cute and they’re best friends, but so is her and Carter. Katana says Jade and Perez are the flavour of the month and they can’t jump the line.

She says Indi gives the women’s movement a bad name, she’s weak-minded and lacks the mental fortitude to go it alone. Hartwell says Kiana is very opinionated but the problem is, nobody cares about her opinions. How about she bring her opinions to the ring next week? Kiana agrees and says she will teach Hartwell a lesson. Indi says this is NXT 2.0, and “nobody likes a bitch”.

Joe Gacy is with The Dyad. He talks to his men, telling the story of how they felt lost and disillusioned. He was the one who showed them the light. They have been reborn. They have tasted gold before but when they get back to that, under his guidance, it will be so much more delicious.
