- Aleister Black vs. Bobby Fish: The match closes out with Black hitting a knee, but Fish comes back with a suplex. Black and Fish trade punches and kicks until Black hits a springboard dive and a high knee on Fish. Black finishes off Fish with the Black Mass kick and scores the pinfall.
Winner: Aleister Black, by pinfall.

- Backstage, Hideo Itami blames Kassius Ohno for their loss last week. Ohno tells Itami he's changed since losing at Takeover: Chicago and Itami needs to start taking accountability for his actions.

- "Mae Young Classic Tournament Qualifying Match": Vanessa Borne vs. Jayme Hachey: The match closes out with Jayme trapping Vanessa in a submission. Vanessa escapes and unloads a series of chops on Jayme. Vanessa hits a spinning slam on Jayme and scores the pinfall.
Winner: Vanessa Borne, by pinfall.

- A video from last week is shown which shows Wolfe and Dain of SAnitY attacking and beating down Drew McIntyre in the parking lot.

- Backstage, William Regal informs NXT World Champion Bobby Roode that Drew McIntyre and Dain are both undefeated and potential challengers for Roode's title. Roode doesn't care because he could beat both on any given day. Regal announces McIntyre vs. Dain for next week with the winner getting Bobby Roode.

- Johnny Gargano Promo: Gargano says he's been gone awhile and has missed everyone. Gargano says he never thought that the man he'd take a bullet for would be the one to pull the trigger. Gargano says he'll never understand why Tommaso Ciampa did what he did, but he's not going to dwell on it and wants a spot on the NXT Takeover: Brooklyn 3 card.

- "NXT World Tag Team Championship Match": The Authors of Pain (c) vs. Heavy Machinery: The match closes out with Knight unloading clotheslines on AOP. Dozovic tags in, takes down Akam and then hits a belly to belly on Razar. Dozovic hits a power slam and then both members of Heavy Machinery hit assisted body slams for a near fall. Akam takes out Dozovic and then AOP hit the Last Chapter to score the pinfall and retain their titles.
Winners: Authors of Pain, by pinfall, to retain the NXT World Tag Team Championship.

- After the match, Wolfe, Dain and Nikki Cross of SAnitY appear on the stage and stare down the AOP. Pages from the Book of Pain fall from the ceiling as SAnitY play mind games with AOP to end the show.
