  • Oro Mensah def. Grayson Waller thanks to interference by Apollo Crews.
  • JD McDonagh def. Tyler Bate in a match to determine the #1 contender for Bron Breakker and the NXT Championship. However, as Breakker and McDonagh were staring each other down, Ilja Dragunov made his grand return. Dragunov, who had to relinquish his NXT UK Championship, has been out of action since July.

September 27th Spoilers

  • Joe Gacy def. Cameron Grimes. During the match, the mysterious masked woman was once again shown in the crowd.
  • Sol Ruca def. Amari Miller
  • Nikkita Lyons def. Kayden Carter
  • Ilja Dragunov cut a promo talking about how he had to vacate the NXT UK Championship due to injury but that was back now. He was interrupted by McDonagh, and then by Breakker. Following the tense interaction between the three, a triple threat match was made official for the NXT Championship, which will take place at NXT’s next TakeOver, the first in over a year, Halloween Havoc.
  • Damon Kemp def. Brutus Creed. Note: this match may have been re-taped with a slightly different finish as later in the night, Creed came to the ring for a match that ended in a no contest when Kemp attacked Creed with a chair.
  • Wes Lee def. Tony Dā€™Angelo via referee stoppage. While the extent of DeAngelo’s injury is unknown, it appears the injury happened when he was thrown into the middle turnbuckle. Conflicting reports from fans suggest this could be a head or knee injury. The match was stopped, indicating the injury, whatever it may have been, is real. Lee was given the win.
  • Mandy Rose def. Fallon Henley. Rose also cut a promo on Alba Fyre. Fyre was not there to respond in person, but did respond via video.
  • Ilja Dragunov def. Xyon Quinn.
