Matches Tonight: Eight (approx. 58 minutes)

- Singles Debut North American Championship Qualifier Match: Oro Mensah vs Grayson Waller: Oro Mensah was known as Oliver Carter in NXT UK and was an NXT UK Tag Team champion with Ashton Smith. After a bloody-eyed Apollo Crews showed up to distract Waller, Mensah picked up the win and advances to the ladder match. 9:37-9:42pm EST.
- Singles Number One Contendership Match: Tyler Bate vs JD McDonagh (Jordan Devlin). Good match with a fantastic final 3-4 minutes that saw Devlin pick up the win–he’ll face Bron at Halloween Havoc. 9:53-10:06pm EST.
Miscellaneous Non-Match Segments of Note:
- HBK Did Things: HBK stripped Solo Sikoa of the North American Championship, as Solo wasn’t voted by the fans to fight Hayes last week (thus making his win, apparently illegitimate.) HBK refused to give the title to Hayes, announced a series of matches culminating in another five-man ladder match at Halloween Havoc for the vacated title. Also, the logo shown last week? The letters are now white, the trim is black and gold, and much of the colorful 2.0 aesthetic is still present.
- Debuts: Oro Mensah (NXT UK’s Oliver Carter) and Ilja Dragunov made their NXT roster debuts officially.
- North American Championship Ladder Match, Updated: The first person announced was former champion Carmelo Hayes. Joining him was Oro Mensah who defeated Waller in a qualifying match.
- Next Week on NXT 2.0: Wes Lee vs Tony D’Angelo in a North American Championship qualifier match. Sol Ruca debuts. Cameron Grimes takes on Joe Gacy. Gallus takes on Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen in a Pub Rules Match.
