Lio Rush (c) vs Angel Garza
They start the match off by posing before they have a stand off and Angel tries to shake Lio's hand before Lio ducks a slap and catches a kick before Angel goes into the audience and takes his pants off. Lio hits a suicide dive and a tornado DDT for a quick two count before they run the ropes and Lio hits a wrecking ball dropkick before Angel catches Lio when he goes for a suicide dive as we go to commercial.
We come back to Lio hitting a hand spring back elbow for a quick two count before Angel drops him with a bicycle knee and dropkicks him when he goes for a rebound cutter for a two count. Lio hits a twisting neckbreaker for a near fall before Angel catches him ascending the top turnbuckle before Angel hits a variation of a Spanish fly for a near fall. Angel stomps Lio down and rains down punches before Lio hits a standing Spanish fly and a whirlwind kick into a rebound stunner and Angel hits a Wing Clipper for a very close near fall. Angel then goes for a super Wing Clipper and they exchange headbutts until Lio drops Angel to the mat before hitting two Final Hours for the pin and the win.
Winner: Lio Rush retains his NXT Cruiserweight Championship by defeating Angel Garza via pinfall with the Final Hour.

Aliyah pushes Li down before Li drops her with a flurry of punches and kicks and Vanessa holds onto Aliyah when Xia tries to pull her back into the ring and Aliyah attacks her from behind. Xia then comes back with a cartwheel forearm and a diving ax handle before dropping Aliyah with a roundhouse kick for the pin and the win.

-We get a video package for Pete Dunne versus Killian Dain ahead of their match later tonight as we go to commercial.
-Finn Bálor comes out to the ring and puts down NXT, the fans and industry as well as Johnny Gargano and how he built NXT and once he left a bunch of crying little boys moved in and says that he chased Matt Riddle away before Matt shows up and chases Finn off. The Undisputed Era then come out and stalk Matt to the ring before he's joined by Tommaso Ciampa and Keith Lee and the two sides exchange barbs before setting up a match between Roderick Strong and Keith Lee for later tonight. Everyone is then separated by officials before UE start to leave and Keith pulls Strong into the ring as we go to commercial.
Roderick Strong vs Keith Lee
Keith takes control early, hitting a scoop slam before man handling Strong and Strong opts to chop the big man down with kicks to the legs.

Strong then traps Lee in the ropes in the corner and hits a high knee as we go to commercial.
We return to Keith and Strong exchanging strikes until Strong hits an enzuigiri and sends Keith out of the ring before Keith catches him when he dives off of the apron. Keith sends Strong into the apron and tosses him back into the ring through the ropes before Strong hits a wrecking ball dropkick that sends Lee into the barricade. Back in the ring Strong drops Keith with a basement dropkick before locking in a rear chin lock before chop blocking Lee and slapping him across the head. Lee grabs Strong and holds onto him before Lee drops him and Strong hits a superplex for a near fall before they exchange forearms until Keith turns Strong inside out with a lariat and the rest of Undisputed Era come down to the ring before they are joined by Riddle and Ciampa and both sides brawl until Matt is taken out by Finn Bálor.
