Aichner and Barthel attacked Riddle and Thatcher on April 29 episode of NXT as the champions were in the middle of the Newly-Bros Show. Thatcher replaced Pete Dunne as Riddle's tag partner and champion due to Dunne being unable to fly into the United States.

It was also announced that Finn Balor will take on Cameron Grimes next week as well. After Grimes won his match on NXT tonight, he called out Balor, saying he would slap Balor's face. In the middle of Grimes' promo, Balor appeared and confronted him and the two had a brief altercation.

On WWE's The Bump, William Regal also revealed that fans will hear from Rhea Ripley and teased a "major announcement" on NXT. It was later confirmed by WWE that Shawn Michaels & Triple H will be making the announcement.
