Tommaso Ciampa vs Angel Garza
Tommaso Ciampa comes out for his first match since March this year. Big pop as his name gets announced. Garza charges to start the match but Ciampa drops him first with a big shoulder tackle. Fast action continues and Garza hits an enziguri. Ciampa launches Garza into the apron, the barrier, and then over to the floor again. Back in the ring, Ciampa goes for a Fairytale Ending but Garza rams him back into the corner. Garza follows with a big dropkick to the left knee in the corner.
Garza sends Ciampa out to the floor and dives on him. Back again and Garza hits a missile dropkick. Ciampa counters and unloads. He drops Garza in the corner, charges in with a big knee to the face, sending Garza to the outside. Ciampa stomps away on Garza’s Mexican flag now and continues to disrespect it. He hits his finisher hanging DDT, the Willow’s Bell, to get the pin and win.
Winner- Tommaso Ciampa
After the match, all 4 members of The Undisputed Era come out. They march to ringside as Ciampa gets ready with a crutch in hand. O’Reilly goes to the commentary table and tosses them a USB drive. The Undisputed Era stares Ciampa and taunts him from the ramp. Mauro says he will get the USB stick to the production truck to air it on the show.
Back from the break, the video from the USB drive from the Undisputed ERA is aired. Adam Cole is talking trash to the camera backstage. We see The Velveteen Dream laid out on top of some boxes and Roderick Strong tells us that this is what he gets for getting in his way. Cole says the same thing will happen to Finn Balor if he becomes a problem.

Mauro Ranallo sends us to a video package on Johnny Gargano where he says he will do whatever it takes to be NXT Champion again. Gargano is backstage with Cathy Kelley in a recorded interview. She asks about the history with Tommaso Ciampa and Gargano replies that it has been documented with all the ups and the downs. He won’t know how things are between them until he and Ciampa see each other face to face.
