Itami hits a lariat on Maluta and then follows that up with the KENTA combo. Maluta crawls to the corner and gets crushed with an Itami leaping hesitation drop kick. Itami hits the Busaiku Knee and scores the pinfall.
Winner: Hideo Itami, by pinfall.

- Backstage, the NXT World Tag Team Champions, The Revival, state that they are the greatest tag team in NXT. TM61 interrupt and challenge the champs, but they are told to get to the back of the line. Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano interrupt and say they are the #1 Contenders, they are next in line and The Revival are dodging them. The Revival says they already promised TM61 a match, they'll just have to wait.

- Mojo Rawley vs. Chris Atkin: Rawley immediately hits the pounce and goes for a cover. An angry Samoa Joe hits the ring and attacks Mojo and Atkin, leaving both men laid out. Joe grabs a microphone and says that since NXT GM William Regal doesn't want to consult Joe, than Joe doesn't have to consult Regal before ruining his show. Mojo is back up and attacks Joe. Joe chases Mojo up the ramp, attacks Mojo and locks Mojo in the Coquina Clutch submission.
Winner: No Contest

- Backstage, Bayley says that she's not the same person she was when Asuka beat her at NXT Takeover: Dallas. Asuka interrupts and says if she's ready than come watch her match.

- Asuka vs. Aliyah: Bayley is on commentary for this match. Asuka toys with Aliyah throughout the match and stares at Bayley. The match closes out with Asuka trapping Aliyah in an octopus hold submission. Aliyah manages to land a kick on Asuka and goes to the top rope. Aliyah leaps off the top rope, but eats a big Asuka kick in the face. Asuka locks Aliyah in the Asuka Lock and makes Aliyah tap out. After the match, Asuka keeps the submission locked in. Bayley gets in the ring, Asuka immediately releases the submission and goes face to face with Bayley.
Winner: Asuka, by submission.

- Bobby Roode Promo: Roode says the wait is finally over, Roode realized that NXT was the place for him and in order for NXT to continue to thrive, they need Bobby Roode. Roode says that now that he has arrived the fans will consist of presidents and CEOs, not unwashed, fat losers. Now that Bobby Roode is here, NXT will be glorious.

- The Revival vs. TM61: The match closes out with Dawson and Wilder working over Thorne's shoulder. Wilder dives off the second rope, but gets kicked in the face by Thorne. Thorne tags Miller in and Miller hits a spine buster on Dawson for a near fall. Dawson hits Miller with a DDT and scores the pinfall. After the match, Dawson and Wilder say they are the best tag team in the world. Tommaso Ciampa and Johnny Gargano interrupt and again remind The Revival that they haven't beat them yet. The Revival attack Ciampa and Gargano, but Ciampa and Gargano hit their double team finisher on Wilder. Gargano covers Wilder and Ciampa makes a three count like a referee. Ciampa and Gargano celebrate with the titles to close the show.
