** NXT **

- "NXT Women's Championship, Triple Threat Qualifying Match": Sonya Deville vs. Ruby Riot vs. Ember Moon: The match closes out with Ruby hitting a cross body outside, taking out Ember and Sonya and injuring her leg. Sonya traps Ruby in a ankle lock submission in the middle of the ring as Ruby tries to reach the ropes. Ruby is about to tap out when suddenly Ember hits the Eclipse Stunner on Sonya, breaking the submission and sending Sonya to the floor. Ember quickly covers Ruby and scores the pinfall to advance to the Fatal Four Way Match at NXT WarGames.
Winner: Ember Moon, by pinfall.

- Outside security footage shows The Undisputed Era confronting Roderick Strong and attempting to get him to join their faction.  Strong appears to turn down the offer and walks away.

- Backstage, NXT GM William Regal is interviewed. Billie Kay and Peyton Royce interrupt. Regal announces a battle royal next week to determine the last spot in the NXT Women's Championship Fatal Four Way Match at NXT WarGames. Billie and Peyton are disgusted with the decision and walk out.

- Raul Mendoza vs. Aleister Black: Before the match The Velveteen Dream Patrick Clark hits the ring, steals Black's jacket and stands on the ramp while wearing it. The match closes out with Mendoza getting a near fall senton on Black. Black catches a kick from Mendoza and unloads a series of kicks of his own. Black lands a springboard moonsault and then the Black Mass kick for the pinfall.
Winner: Aleister Black, by pinfall.

- Sitdown Interview With Drew McIntyre: McIntyre tells the story about his first run in WWE, getting let go, explaining to his family how he was unemployed and wondering how he would make it in life with wrestling being the only job he ever had. McIntyre never gave up and ended up back in the WWE and is now the NXT World Champion. Zelina Vega interrupts and says that Almas and McIntyre have a lot in common, except Almas was never fired and fell flat on his face like McIntyre. Zelina accuses McIntyre of dodging Andrade "Cien" Almas. McIntyre says he'll fight anyone, anytime and if Almas wants a title shot then he needs to come ask like a man instead of sending his associate to do his dirty work.

- Kassius Ohno vs. Cezar Bononi: The match closes out with Bononi missing a drop kick and gets hit with an Ohno senton. Ohno unloads kicks, sending Bononi outside and then hits a drop kick. Back in the ring, Ohno nails the huge rolling elbow to the back of the head of Bononi and scores the pinfall.

Winners: SAnitY, by DQ.

- After the match, the Undisputed Era escape as The Authors of Pain hit the Super Collider on SAnitY to end the show.
