The match closes out with Nikki Cross appearing, heads to the ring and gets on the apron. Ruby fights off Peyton and Billie and tags in Nikki. Nikki unloads and gets a near fall inverted DDT on Billie. Peyton and Billie hit their double team finisher on Nikki, but Nikki kicks out at two and a half. Nikki tags Ruby, who leaps off the top rope on to Peyton and Billie. Ruby lands the Riot Kick and scores the pinfall.
Winners: Ruby Riot and Nikki Cross, by pinfall.

- Backstage, Lars Sullivan is interviewed. Lars says he's always in control of his rage. Lars warns Danny Burch, who Lars will face next week, to control his fear.
- Backstage, Zelina Vega is interviewed coming into the arena. She's asked if Johnny Gargano will ever get a rematch against Andrade "Cien" Almas. Zelina says they'd gladly accept a rematch because every victory Almas gets the closer he'll get to a NXT World Championship Match.
- Aleister Black vs. Lio Rush: The match never happens as The Velveteen Dream Patrick Clark attacks Rush from behind in the ring. Clark hits the Purple Rainmaker elbow on Rush and then taunts Black to get in the ring with him. Black hits the ring and sits Indian style as Clark retreats. Clark promises Black that he will make him say his name.
Winner: No Contest.

- Kairi Sane vs. Aliyah: The match closes out with Kairi making quick work of Aliyah. Kairi hits a spear, unloads kicks and chops in the corner on Aliyah and then hits Aliyah with two corner splashes. Kairi goes to the top rope and hits the Insane Elbow on Aliyah for the pinfall.
Winner: Kairi Sane, by pinfall. 

- "NXT World Championship Match": Drew McIntyre (c) vs. Roderick Strong: The match closes out with both men trading punches until Strong gets a near fall power bomb. McIntyre takes Strong up to the second rope and hits a Super Celtic Cross for a near fall. Both men trade more offense until McIntyre power bombs Strong right into the ring post. McIntyre drills Strong with the Future Shock DDT, but holds off on going for the pinfall. McIntyre charges and nails Strong with The Claymore to finally score the pinfall and retain the title.
- Winner: Drew McIntyre, by pinfall, to retain the NXT World Championship.

- After the match, Strong leaves the ring after shaking McIntyre's hand and heads up to the stage. The Undisputed Era suddenly arrive. Adam Cole pats Strong on the head, whispers something to Strong and then the Undisputed Era leave. Strong and McIntyre are both left confused to end the show.
