Dragon Lee came out and stated that Rey Mysterio is still the greatest luchador in the world and challenged Dominik to a match for the North American title.

Noam Dar vs Tyler Bate
Noam Dar is still carrying around the duplicate NXT Heritage Cup trophy even after Nathan Frazer defeated Oro Mensah for the Cup. Mensah replaced Noam Dar in the Heritage Cup match due to his injury. Noam still claims he is the champion, and hence Tyler Bate challenged him to defend the cup against him.
Bron Breakker vs Von Wagner
On the July 25 episode of NXT, Breaker speared Von Wagner after the latter defeated Javier Bernal in a singles match. A week later, Breaker appeared in a pre-recorded segment and called out Wagner which set up a match this week. Who will win the battle of the powerhouses?
Axiom vs Mustafa Ali
During the August 1 episode of NXT, Axiom confronted Dominik, but he was cut off by Mustafa who started his own argument with Dominik. As a result, Axiom and Mustafa had a dispute which led to a match between them this week.
