Roderick Strong is shown walking into the arena with his family as he prepares for his big title opportunity.

1) Killian Dain & Alexander Wolfe def. Hideo Itami & Kassius Ohno via running crossbody in over 6 minutes.

At the Performance Center, Ember Moon tells the press she's ready to be the next challenger for the NXT Women's Title. Ruby Riot interrupts to mention her name is still in the mix. We see footage of last week's Last Woman Standing match between Asuka and Nikki Cross.

Backstage, Drew McIntyre says the main event will be a fantastic match, but next time, we'll be talking about his title match.

Johnny Gargano returns next week. Additionally, Heavy Machinery will challenge The Authors of Pain for the Tag Titles.

At the Performance Center - Peyton Royce and Billie Kay are interviewed, but they complain about the lack of celebrating Kay's birthday. In the background, Andrade Almas argues with a woman (Thea Trinidad).

Last week - Bianca Belair beat Aliyah to qualify for the Mae Young Classic.

Another video package on Roderick Strong's journey airs.

2) NXT Championship Match: Bobby Roode (c) def. Roderick Strong via Glorious DDT in 19:55 to retain. Originally, Strong pinned Roode for the three, but Bobby's foot was under the rope, so the match restarted. Strong's mother and wife were in the front row watching.
