The finish saw Hayes get hit with a splash after missing his top rope leg drop. However, Jones was too comfortable with his cover, allowing Hayes to score the win with a crucifix pin.

With this victory, Hayes has earned an NXT title match of his choosing. He said after the bout that he wasn't sure which title he will go after.

Hayes defeated Josh Briggs in the first round and Duke Hudson in the second round to earn his spot in the finals. Jones had defeated Andre Chase and Trey Baxter in his two tournament matches to make it to the finals.
