Mandy Rose, Gigi Dolan, and Jacy Jayne, are watching from the Toxic Lounge. The match starts with Jade and Carter locking-up and exchanging holds. Carter hits an arm-drag and chops Jade in the chest, then hits a springboard arm-drag. Katana tags in and is thrown up by Kayden and lands with a seated senton on Jade
Chance leaps over Jade and poses, then kicks her for a two-count. Cora hits a nice roll-up for a two-count, then connects with some European uppercuts and a front dropkick. Perez tags in and Jade whips her into Katana in the corner. Perez hits an arm-drag and grabs a shoulder-lock. Katana fights up but Perez tags Jade who hits an arm wrench and grabs a front facelock.
Perez tags back in and keeps the pressure on Chance but Katana blocks an Irish whip and makes the tag. Carter kicks Perez from the apron, then delivers some elbows to the neck. Katana tags back in and hits a tope for a two-count. Perez gets Katana up on her shoulders, spins her around and drops her neck-first on the ropes.
Jade tags in and dropkicks Katana, then Perez and Carter come in and we get a four woman stalemate. Perez and Jade toss them both out of the ring, then Roxanne wants to dive out but Carter slides back in and cuts her off. Katana pulls Jade off the apron and shoves her into the steel steps as we head to the break.
We return to see Katana tag in an hit a double stomp to Perez after a backstabber from Carter. Kayden quickly tags back in and applies a single leg Boston crab for a minute, then tags Katana and she applies the same hold. Perez spins her off and tags Cora, who comes in with clotheslines and a hurricanrana to Carter.
Cora knocks Chance off the apron, then hits a running knee to Kayden against the ropes for a near-fall. Both women get knocked down and Jade makes a tag but Katana is nowhere to be found. Perez runs in but Carter superkicks her, then Katana appears and gets the tag. They look for the neckbreaker/450 but Jade pulls Carter out of the ring, then Perez hits Poprox for the win.
Joe Gacy walks into Diamond Mine’s training room. He tells the Creed Brothers that Roderick Strong doesn’t appreciate them, but he would welcome them wholly into the family. Strong appears and tells Gacy nobody wants his Kool-Aid. He says Diamond Mine is the strongest family in NXT and they’ll be happy to prove it tonight. Strong hugs Brutus, Julius, and Ivy Nile, then stares after them and fist bumps Damon Kemp, as though he has something up his sleeve.
Toxic Attraction is interviewed backstage. Kayne says she was very unimpressed by Perez and Jade tonight. Dolan says it doesn’t matter if the two of them are best friends, they’ve beaten best friends before and next week will be no different. Mandy says Roxanne needs to know better than to use her contract on her title, then Nikkita Lyons walks up. She says she’s back and she’s putting Mandy on notice. Rose says Lyons can roar all she wants but when they step in the ring tonight, Lyons will realise who the real queen of the jungle is.
The match gets underway and Jiro does some cartwheels but Vinci grabs a wristlock. Jiro hits Vinci with his jacket a few times, but gets German suplexed. Vinci puts Jiro in the corner and chops his chest hard a few times. Jiro fires back with a kick and looks for a springboard moonsalt but Vinci rolls out of the way. Giovanni hits a springboard tornado DDT and a sit-out Last Ride for the win.
We see a clip of Brooks and Kensen winning the NXT UK Tag Team Titles this past week. The duo, along with Fallon Henley, make their way to the ring.
Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams are interviewed backstage. He says nobody can get one over on him, nobody can tell him what to do because every rule has an exception when you’re an exceptional talent. Grayson Waller appears with a basketball and merchandise and asks for a signing for his friends back in Australia. Waller thanks him and Hayes says he’s a trustworthy guy.
Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen are in the ring alongside Fallon Henley. Brooks Jensen introduces them as the NXT UK Tag Team Champions and the fans chant “you deserve it”. Briggs says they love to fight and they took it to the best the UK had to offer. Jensen says he remembers when they met and Briggs told him he had a lot of potential. He thanks him for picking him and they hug. Briggs says he’s proud of him but there’s one thing left to do and Henley says “drink some beer!”
Pretty Deadly come out and interrupt the party. Kit Wilson says they must be kidding. Elton Prince says those titles once meant something because they were around the waist of the two tastiest snacks in NXT. Prince says the belts are now around the waist of trailer-park trash. He says all they’ve done is lower the bar and prestige, and only they can raise them up again.
Briggs tells them to shut up and says they know the prestige of the belts, a lot of great teams have worn them, but Pretty Deadly aren’t one of them. He says they’re happy to defend the belts in the UK and the US, so how about they get things underway right now? Jensen jabs Elton and Briggs attacks Wilson. Briggs hits an atomic drop to Wilson and Henley slaps him across the face. Prince is sent to the apron and they knock him off where he lands on Kit.
We’re inside the women’s locker room where Kayden Carter and Katana Chance are bemoaning their loss earlier.

James is sent to the apron but she kicks Hartwell back and drops her. James grabs a waistlock and drives her elbows into Hartwell’s back. Indi fights her way out and lands a series of forearms.
James rolls to the apron but Indi lands a European uppercut, then boots her in the face for a two-count. Kiana counters Indi and shoves her into the corner but Indi jumps to the apron. Hartwell knocks her down and looks for a springboard elbow drop but Kiana avoids it. James takse Indi down and pins her with her feet on the ropes for the win!
We see Tony D’Angelo on a bridge with Stacks and they dump, what is supposed to Two Dimes’s body, over into the water. D’Angelo holds his leather jacket and says he trusted him but he tried to steal his throne. He throws the gold watch he gave him into the river, then Santos Escobar then calls Tony and taunts him. D’Angelo is furious.
Wes Lee says last week he was in the ring pouring his heart and soul out when Trick Williams came out and mocked him. Trick thinks his emotion is his weakness, but it’s actually his biggest strength and at The Great American Bash he’s going to find his inner peace at the expense of Trick.
Gacy starts with Strong and they lock-up and struggle for control. Strong grabs a sleeper but Gacy backs him into the corner and tags one of the druids.

Brutus continues to be held down with submissions and stomps by the two druids. Strong gets knocked off the apron and Brutus fights off both The Dyad and tags Julius. Creed is red hot with belly-to-belly suplexes and a spinning gutwrench suplex to both druids. Julius hits a rolling fireman’s carry and readies for the finish but Roddy tags himself in.
Strong and Julius shove each other until Gacy comes back in and tries to knock Roddy down but Brutus gets in the away. Strong starts fighting with him as well, meanwhile one of the druids comes in and replaces the other while the referee isn’t watching.

Solo Sikoa is backstage with Apollo Crews, angry about losing last week. Crews tells him to keep his chin up because he is incredible and he will be a Champion. Xyon Quinn walks up and tells Apollo he is the most perfect WWE Superstar because of his looks and his ability. Crews says there’s no doubt that people think Quinn has a bright future… but he doesn’t see it.
Wade Barrett introduces Cameron Grimes, followed by the NXT Champion, Bron Breakker. Wade looks to moderate but Breakker tells him they’ve got things. Breakker says Grimes is different than all the others he’s face. He knows they’re going to leave it all in the ring because Grimes has nothing to lose. Cameron says that’s not true, he has everything to lose.
Grimes says he gets that, for Bron, it’s just another big title defense. But what happens if he loses the title? He’s still Bron Breakker, he goes to Raw or SmackDown. Hell he’ll probably go to SummerSlam. Meanwhile he lost the North American Championship and he decided to put all his chips on the NXT Championship. If he fails at this he has no other options.
Grimes says Breakker must know about last resorts because this wasn’t his first choice, was it? Breakker wanted to be a pro football player but he failed and then called up his daddy to get him a shot in WWE. Breakker says he didn’t expect that from Grimes, he didn’t have to bring his daddy into this. Breakker says he isn’t fooled by Grimes’s cheap suit and fake smile. So next week he really is going to the moon but when he gets there he’s going to get his ass speared.
Grimes says he isn’t like all the rest of the people Bron’s faced, he keeps getting back up. Bron says he hopes that’s true because he wants to keep putting him down. Grimes says Breakker just doesn’t get it, he doesn’t have heart. But that’s to be expected, because his father didn’t have any heart either. That’s why he never won the big one.
Breakker grabs Grimes by the throat and lifts him up. Grimes slides off and Breakker charges at him but nobody’s home and he hits the buckles hard. Grimes then runs Breakker shoulder-first into the turnbuckles and the top buckle snaps off! Breakker is down holding his arm and officials rush down and stop Grimes. Breakker says his shoulder is out and Grimes leaves the ring.
