- Channing "Stacks" Lorenzo confronted Wes Lee and noted that Tony D'Angelo is hurt. He confirmed that D’Angelo has an issue with his PCL, saying that it is going a different direction from the rest of the knee. "Stacks" then expressed his belief that Lee hurt "The Don of NXT" on purpose, and his actions have consequences.
- NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly kicked off the show with a State of the Commonwealth address, dressed in some colorful outfits. They bragged about their success, noting that they have beaten everyone. The duo made fun of their competition. The Brawling Brutes (Ridge Holland and Butch) interrupted them and challenged them to a match. Pretty Deadly defended the gold against the duo, and the SmackDown stars nearly emerged victorious. But Imperium interfered and cost the challengers the match. After the bell, Imperium fought around ringside with the Brawling Brutes.
- Carmelo Hayes battled Oro Mensah in a singles match. Mensah showcased plenty of impressive offense, but in the end, Hayes scored the win.
- The former NXT North American Champion joined commentary for the next match to find out who would qualify for the Ladder Match for the NXT North American Championship at NXT Halloween Havoc. Andre Chase battled Von Wagner, and he delivered a valiant effort. Robert Stone interfered, but Thea Hail removed him from the equation by slamming him at ringside. In the end, Wagner clinched the win by slamming Chase to the mat. Wes Lee blindsided Hayes after the match.
- Alba Fyre attacked Toxic Attraction and drove off in their car while Mandy Rose was still inside, seemingly abducting the NXT Women's Champion in the process. The scheduled six-woman tag team bout became a standard two-on-two contest. Zoey Stark and Nikkita Lyons battled Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne of Toxic Attraction in a Number One Contender's Match for the NXT Women's Tag Team Championship. At the end of a hard-fought match, Lyons scored the win for her team.
- Wendy Choo faced Lash Legend and picked up a decisive win over her rival.
- Grayson Waller hosted The Grayson Waller Effect and noted that he got extra security to make sure that Apollo Crews wouldn't be able to interfere. He revealed that Jade and Perez will face each other in a Spin the Wheel, Make a Deal match at NXT Halloween Havoc. After the two women traded verbal barbs, he spun the wheel, and it landed on a Weapons Wild Match. Perez and Jade brawled as Apollo Crews attacked Waller.
- Crews dragged Waller under the ring, and when the later emerged, his eyes had seemingly been gouged out.

- Ilja Dragunov discussed his road to recovery from his injury and noted that while he can't change the past, he can change the future.

- Gallus commented on their suspension and vowed to win gold once they return to NXT.
- Duke Hudson confronted the Creed Brothers backstage when Brutus Creed was in the trainer's room. Julius challenged him to a match and went on to score a dominant win over him.
