NXT Live Results:
– The show opened with an appearance by Triple H. The set up of Full Sail is a little difference, with the stage and ramp removed to create more seating.
1. NXT Women’s Championship Number One Contender Fatal Four-way Match: Candice LeRae defeated Io Shirai, Mia Yim, and Bianca Belair. LeRae hit a reverse rana on Yim and a springboard moonsault to win the match and the number one contendership. After the match, Shayna Baszler, Marina Shafir, and Jessamyn Duke surrounded LeRae on the stage and tried to intimidate her.
– Keith Lee vs. Dominik Dijakovic was announced for next week’s episode.
2. Cameron Grimes defeated Sean Maluta. Grimes won immediately with a jumping double-stomp.
3. North American Championship Match: Roderick Strong defeated Velveteen Dream (c). Strong capitalized on Undisputed Era interference, a ref bump, and an End of Heartache but couldn’t put Dream away. Adam Cole superkicked Dream behind the referee’s back, and Strong hit a second End of Heartache to win the match and the championship.
– The episode then moved over to WWE Network.
4. Pete Dunne defeated Arturo Ruas. Dunne won by submission with an armbar while snapping Ruas’ fingers.
5. Xia Li defeated Aliyah with a tornado kick.
– A wrestler named “Denzel Dejournette” was suppose to face KUSHIDA, but was attacked and destroyed by Marcel Barthel, Fabian Aichner, and Alexander Wolfe of Imperium from NXT UK. United Kingdom Champion WALTER finally joined them, but was interrupted by KUSHIDA, who said this was his time. KUSHIDA briefly brawled with Imperium until he was caught by WALTER. KUSHIDA barely escaped, but apparently a challenge has been made.
6. Cruiserweight Championship Number One Contender Match: Lio Rush defeated Oney Lorcan. Rush won his return to WWE with a frog splash. He’ll challenge Drew Gulak for the Cruiserweight Championship.
7. Street Fight: Matt Riddle vs. Killian Dain went to a No Contest when the fight spilled out into the parking lot, sparking a roster-wide brawl including Imperium, the Street Profits, the Forgotten Sons, and a dozen others. The fight continued back into the ring with Riddle and Dain fighting off security, and ended with Dain hitting a huge dive through the ropes onto several people.
