Ahead of the bout, it was revealed that the winner would face Carmelo in a championship match at Vengeance Day on February 15.

Grimes and D'Angelo main evented NXT in a showdown that saw Pete Dunne influence the outcome when he hit Tony in the hand with a cricket bat while the referee was distracted. Grimes was able to hit his finishing move immediately afterward for the pin and win. He traded words with Carmelo and Trick Williams as he celebrated his victory.

Hayes became the Undisputed North American Champion after defeating then-Cruiserweight Champion Roderick Strong in a Title vs. Title match at NXT New Year's Evil.
