“WWE: Then. Now. Forever.”
The show opens inside the office of NXT General Manager William Regal, who addresses the injury of Drew McIntyre and the tournament to crown a new #1 contender to the NXT Championship at Takeover: Philadelphia. We will have four singles matches, and the winners of those will face off in a Fatal 4-Way to determine the #1 contender.
Tonight will hold two of those matches: Killian Dain will face Trent Seven, and Kassius Ohno was set to face Velveteen Dream…but due to injuries suffered at Takeover: War Games, there will be a new opponent set to take on Ohno. Regal wishes all of them the best of luck, and the NXT intro takes us to a packed crowd at Full Sail as commentary hypes the matches set for tonight, including Ruby Riott taking on Sonya Deville in a No Holds Barred Match! Back at ringside, the new NXT Champion Andrade “Cien” Almas and Zelina Vega make their way to the ring, taunting the fans along the way.
Andrade’s NXT Championship Celebration
Vega gets a mic from ringside, declaring us all as witness to the beginning of a historic championship reign. Ladies and gentlemen, respect the man…embrace the legend…rise for your NXT Champion, El Idolo, Andrade “Cien” Almas! A loud “SI” chant starts as Almas thanks Vega and says he told us he’d be NXT Champion. “I am the champion!” He beat…sorry, he hurt…Drew McIntyre. As for the next #1 contender, he beat Drew, and whoever is next will face the same fate. We are NXT…but I am the new NXT Champion! He drops the mic, yelling at the crowd as his music hits while he poses with the title. Commentary hypes one of the qualifying matches as Kassius Ohno faces a mystery opponent later tonight!

Back from break, we catch up with Lars Sullivan in an interview from earlier tonight as he addresses his upcoming opponent, Roderick Strong. He says Strong is a hell of a competitor and a handsome guy…but that’s not me. He likes to talk about his family, I don’t have a family. All Lars Sullivan cares about is getting his hands on Roderick Strong in two weeks, so that the NXT Championship is mine in Philadelphia. Addressing the title itself, he says it means that Lars Sullivan gets to show the world that he’s the kind of superstar that he always knew he was. Nothing will stop me…at Takeover: Philadelphia, the NXT Championship is mine! With that, Lars leaves as we go back to ringside, where Trent Seven makes his way to the ring for the first of the qualifying matches of the night! Killian Dain makes his way out next, and the bell rings to get this match underway!

Back from break, Undisputed ERA says they told the world they were gonna take over the world and that’s what they did. They not only survived War Games, but they won. Speaking of winning, next week Adam Cole faces Aleister Black. Aleister has run through nearly everyone on the NXT roster, but the problem is none of them have been named Adam Cole. You are not on my level, and next week I prove that. Kyle talks about he and Bobby facing SAnitY in two weeks for the tag titles. Bobby says that SAnitY talks about the chaos, but in two weeks he and Kyle will bring more than chaos. At Takeover: Brooklyn, Undisputed ERA shocked the system…at War Games, they took the system over…and now, Undisputed ERA rule the system.
Back at ringside, Ruby Riott makes her way to the ring for the next match. Out next is Sonya Deville, and the bell rings to get this match underway!

Back from break, Ruby is back in control with a modified dragon sleeper on Sonya, who gouges the eyes to get out of the hold before hitting a hard kick twice over! Sonya hits some hard forearms to follow up, taking Ruby to the corner to hit another kick before a snap mare and a sliding knee to the back gets her a nearfall. Ruby fights back as she gets to her feet, but Sonya hits a leaping lariat for another nearfall. Sonya with a side head and arm triangle, keeping Ruby on the canvas. Ruby struggles out of the hold, but gets taken back down by Sonya. Ruby slowly getting to a knee again, finally powering out of the hold to hit a STO on Sonya!

Sonya celebrates in the ring as we get a replay of the finish. We go to the back, where Ember Moon talks about winning the NXT Women’s Championship at Takeover. She talks about it being a dream and accomplishing her destiny, and hopefully being the best Women’s Champion in NXT history! The Iconic Duo interrupt, pointing out that Ember pinned Cross, meaning Peyton has the right to beat Ember up. Ember wants to know who she’s facing next week, and the Iconic Duo can’t decide…leading Ember to tell them that she’ll face whichever one of them next week. With that, the Iconic Duo agree that Royce gets a shot at Ember next week, but not to beat Ember up too bad so Kay can deal with her later. From there, commentary hype that match as well as a United Kingdom Championship match in two weeks as Pete Dunne defends against Tyler Bate!
