NXT 6/17/2020: Men's and Women's Tag Team Championships on the line

Here's whats on tap for tonight:

  • Imperium defends the NXT Tag Team championships against Breezango.

  • Sasha Banks & Bayley defend the WWE Women's Tag Team championships against Tegan Nox and Shotzi Blackheart.

We kick off the show with highlights of last week. We see Sasha Banks and Bayley arriving earlier today and we're wasting no time as the NXT Tag Team championship match is first.

Breezango mocks Imperium's entrance in a funny moment. Mid match, Indus Sher makes their way to the ring but Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch come down to make sure they don't get involved. Ultimately Imperium defeated Breezango to retain the NXT Tag Team titles when Fabian Aichner pins Fandango after a DDT.

Tom Phillips interviews Velveteen Dream. Dream talks about what's next for him when Dexter Lumis pops up and puts one of his drawings next to Dream. The drawing is one Lumis and Dream holding the NXT Tag Team titles. Dream says he helped Lumis since Lumis helped him at Takeover. Dream says he is a solo act and walks off.

Damian Priest arrives with Cameron Grimes watching in the background. Priest faces Killian Dain next.

Damian Priest defeated Killian Dain after hitting the Reckoning.

NXT Cruiserweight champion Santos Escobar will be live tonight.

During the commercial break, Killian Dain was walking to the back when Robert Stone was leaning against the plexiglass. Dain hit the glass and knocked Stone down.

Aliyah defeated Xia Li with a botched roll up. Aliyah spotted a seemingly drunk Stone down on the ground with a brown paper bag (assuming some kind of liquor) when she made her entrance. She helped him to the ring to be in her corner. Stone got on the apron and the end of the match and puked into the ring which distracted Xia Li allowing Aliyah to roll her up for the win. This was terrible.

Undisputed Therapy up next...

Timothy Thatcher gives lessons on submission holds.

Adam Cole and Bobby Fish say they're going to get Roderick Strong professional help to help with his problems with Dexter Lumis. Cole says they got the best doctor in the world and it's a disguised Kyle O'Reilly. Strong doesn't realize it's him as he vents to him. They do picture word association. A picture of a car trunk makes Strong flip out. O'Reilly says he needs to face his fear of the trunk. They take him outside to get in a trunk and he runs away!

Adam Cole is interviewed backstage by McKenzie Mitchell. He says each of his challenges has ended the same way and he'll always be champion. Keith Lee interrupts and says Cole's time with the belt is limited but it won't be Karrion Kross that takes the'll be him!! Lee breaks the hour glass and Cole walks off. Lee says "Tick Tock".

Adam Cole makes his way out to the ring. Cole says Karrion Kross is undeserving of a title match because he's barely been here. Sure, Kross beat Tommaso Ciampa but he already did that too. He addressed Keith Lee and says that maybe he wants the NXT North American championship so he can have that title for over a year too. LEE comes out to the ring now. Before Lee can say anything, JOHNNY GARGANO is out now. Gargano says he beat Lee last week. Gargano wants the NXT North American championship but why stop there? He wants the NXT championship too while Candice wins the NXT Women's title. Johnny claims he'll be Johnny Champ Champ. Lee said he cares more for Candice than Johnny does after last week. HERE COMES FINN BALOR!! Balor tells Lee he wants the North American title. Johnny says Finn isn't a triple crown winner and Balor says he's cutting to the front of the line. Balor says he'll take Lee's title and then take Cole's. Balor calls Cole a transitional champ and Cole reminds him that he broke Balor's record. WILLIAM REGAL is on the tron to interrupt them all. KEITH LEE DEFENDS THE NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPIONSHIP NEXT WEEK AGAINST FINN BALOR AND JOHNNY GARGANO!!! Whoever wins faces ADAM COLE ON JULY 8th IN THE FIRST EVER CHAMPION VS. CHAMPION WINNER TAKE ALL MATCH IN NXT!!!

Keith Lee is walking backstage when Candice LeRae approaches him to yell at him. Mia Yim is here and she brawls with Candice.

Dakota Kai w/ Raquel Gonzalez defeated Kayden Carter w/ Kacy Catanzaro by submission. Gonzalez provided a distraction and Catanzaro tried to stop her but had no such luck.

Backstage, Scarlett and Karrion Kross find the broken hour glass. You're unable to see their faces by Kross steps on it to further smash it.

Mercedes Martinez vignette. She's coming soon.

Bronson Reed defeated Leon Ruff in a squash match. Bronson Reed called out Karrion Kross after the match. He carries Ruff out after.

Priest comes out to the parking lot to find his car has flat tires. Grimes offers to call him an Uber.

Santos Escobar makes his way to the ring with Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza. Escobar says he will make Wilde and Mendoza leaders. Drake Maverick comes out and attacks Escobar but the numbers game catches up to him and the three of them beat him down. Escobar does a Phantom Driver onto Maverick through a table onto the concrete!!!

Maverick is taken away in an ambulance.

WWE Smackdown Women's champion Bayley and Sasha Banks successfully defended their WWE Women's Tag Team championships against Shotzi Blackheart and Tegan Nox. Banks made Blackheart tap out to the Bank Statement. This was a good match!
