- #DIY vs. Dillon Miley and Michael Blaze: The match closes out with Miley showing tremendous strength by hitting a stalling suplex on Gargano. Blaze takes control after being tagged in. #DIY return on offense and pick up the pinfall with their double team finisher. After the match, an angry Miley viciously attacks Blaze and leaves his tag team partner laid out.
Winners: #DIY, by pinfall.

After the match, Ruby and Nikki have a staredown.
Winner: Ruby Riot, by pinfall.

Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall.

- Shinsuke Nakamura Says Goodbye: Nakamura says he came in a year ago from Japan, already had plenty of wrestling experience, but wanted to challenge himself. Nakamura says he's learned a lot from everyone in NXT, NXT is it's own brand with its energy and that makes NXT different. Nakamura says the NXT Universe is crazy with its singing, chants, pure passion and calls NXT "Our Style". Nakamura says he will always be NXT because WE ARE NXT! Nakamura dances and celebrates with the fans as the NXT locker room clears out to show their respect to Nakamura. Nakamura bows with respect to NXT GM William Regal and the whole roster and then gets a hug from a surprise appearance by Finn Balor to end the show.
