- Backstage, Peyton Royce and Billie Kay are celebrating. Peyton guarantees she'll beat Asuka next week for the NXT Women's Championship.

- Interview With Tye Dillinger: Dillinger talks about SAnitY attacking him and Roderick Strong and No Way Jose helping him. Dillinger says he has an agenda and it doesn't involve SAnitY.

Jose connects with a punch on Roode and puts Roode down. Jose goes for the cover, but Roode plays possum, grabs Jose and hits the Glorious DDT for the pinfall.

- Kassius Ohno Promo: Ohno says the crowd and Bobby Roode know exactly who he is, he's been in NXT before, he has always taken what he wants and Roode has what he needs. Roode, who's on the NXT stage, claims to be a fighting champion and will fight Ohno right now. Roode hits the ring and takes out Ohno's leg and goes to work on it. Ohno fights back, unloads on Roode and leaves Roode laid out in the ring to end the show.
