NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas vs. Fabian Aichner

He briefly gloats, charging at Fabian again…but Fabian hits a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker on the champ! Almas rolls out of the ring, but Fabian runs the ropes and leaps off the top rope, crashing onto the champ as they both hit the steel ramp! Fabian gets the champ back in the ring, and hops onto the top rope to hit a tornado DDT that gets Fabian a close nearfall! Almas is in the corner, but a quick distraction helps him catch Fabian by surprise. Almas whips Fabian against the ropes, but a leapfrog attempt gets caught by Fabian, who then hits a hard powerbomb for another nearfall! Fabian climbs up top but Vega distracts him, allowing Almas to toss Fabian to the floor. Whip to the stairs sends Fabian reeling, allowing the champ to get him in the ring for a Hammerlock DDT and the win!
Winner via pinfall: Andrade “Cien” Almas

Back from break, we find SAnitY hanging out somewhere ominous as Eric Young talks about scars, restless nights, and unfinished business. War Games was as beautiful as we thought it would be…the result wasn’t ideal, but we have not left the battlefield. Next week, we will finish what we started in Houston.
Commentary hypes the NXT Tag Team Championship match between SAnitY and Undisputed ERA next week as we go back to ringside, where Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch make their way to the ring for the next match. Out next are the Authors of Pain, accompanied by Paul Ellering as they head to the ring before this match gets underway!
Danny Burch and Oney Lorcan vs. The Authors of Pain
Akam charges Burch into the corner, and Burch tries to fight back with European uppercuts to no avail. Tag to Lorcan who goes after Akam, and Rezar rushes in, leading to chaos as Lorcan and Burch start to build some momentum hitting AOP in opposite corners…only for them to get caught by AOP! Death Valley Driver into the corners by AOP, followed by Super Collider and a Last Chapter on Lorcan leads to the Authors of Pain picking up a quick win!
Winners via pinfall: The Authors of Pain
AOP celebrate in the ring as we get a replay from the match. Commentary hypes them up, as well as Ember Moon taking on Peyton Royce in a non-title match…and that is coming up next!

Both women lock up, and Peyton hits a knee right to the midsection as she gets the advantage. Ember fights back, hitting a spinning heel kick and landing a head scissors takedown that sends Royce out of the ring. Ember climbs up top, diving onto both Royce and Kay! The champ brings Royce back into the ring, but is stopped by Kay which gives Royce a chance to lock Ember up in the Tarantula as we go to break.

Ember climbs up top, hitting the Eclipse for the win!
Ember celebrates as we get replays of the match, but Kay runs into the ring hitting Shades of Kay on the champ! She continues the beatdown, getting Royce to help as they drive the face of Ember to the knee of Kay! Before they can do more damage, Nikki Cross runs in to make the save. Cross acts crazy before setting her eyes on the Women’s Championship, and then the champ. Cross stares at the title again before running the ropes, leaving us with the champ holding her title as we go to footage from last week as Street Profits begin their own show, Street Talk, having a chat with the NXT Universe.

Out next is Aleister Black, who makes his way to the ring leaping into a seated position. The bell rings, getting this main event underway!
