  • Triple Threat Match for the NXT North American Championship: Finn Balor vs. Johnny Gargano vs. Keith Lee (champ) - Winner faces Adam Cole on 7/8/2020 for the NXT Championship - Winner Take All!!!

We open with footage from one hour before airing that shows Cameron Grimes walking away from Damian Priest down on the ground by his car complaining his back hurts.

Cameron Grimes makes his way out to the ring. Grimes gets a mic and says Damian Priest is going to no show. Grimes says he's faking all this stuff because he isn't man enough to face Grimes. Grimes wants a referee to come declare him the winner by forfeit. Here comes Priest! He's got taped ribs. Grimes attacks!! A referee is here and the match begins...

Cameron Grimes defeated Damian Priest after hitting the Cave In twice. Once outside the ring and followed up with one inside the ring.

Rhea Ripley was interviewed earlier today about Io Shirai saying this is her NXT. She's cut off by Robert Stone and he says she hurt him and hurt his heart. Stone tells her he has officially signed Aliyah. He tries to convince Ripley to reconsider and she throws him in a dumpster. Aliyah shows up and slaps Ripley!! They'll have a match later.

They talk about the stakes for the triple threat match tonight.

Earlier today, Roderick Strong was at therapy with Kyle O'Reilly disguised as his therapist. Adam Cole and Bobby Fish are with them. Strong says he thinks he is ready to conquer his fear. Strong realizes the therapist is O'Reilly. The UE walks Strong to a parking lot where they lock him in a trunk. The UE tells Strong he's going to conquer Dexter Lumis tonight in a match.

Tale of the tape for tonight's triple threat match.

Highlights of Indus Sher getting involved in the NXT Tag Team championship match last week. Malcolm Bivens and Indus Sher are interviewed by McKenzie Mitchell. Bivens is pissed! He says they walked out to the ring because they wanted to see who would win the match and they were attacked. They threaten Oney Lorcan and Danny Burch.

Video showing the build up to tonight's triple threat including Regal's announcement that the winner will face Adam Cole in 2 weeks for winner take all!!!

Highlights of Karrion Kross destroying people.

Dakota Kai and Raquel Gonzalez defeated Kacy Catanzaro and Kayden Carter. Kai made Catanzaro tap out to the Koji Clutch. Kai then looked into the camera and said it's not Io Shirai's NXT. It's Kai's and she's coming for Shirai.

Bronson Reed vs. Karrion Kross is next. Are we really suppose to believe Reed has a chance? If Kross can dominate Tommaso Ciampa, surely he will dominate Reed.

Keith Lee is backstage getting ready for the main event.

Karrion Kross defeated Bronson Reed when he used the Kross Jacket to make Reed submit. Kross dominated most of the match although Reed had a brief flurry of offense.

McKenzie Mitchell interviews NXT champion Adam Cole. She asks who Cole would rather see win the main event. Cole says it doesn't matter and he's more concerned about whether his mantle has room for one more championship.

Mercedes Martinez vignette. She's coming soon.

Rhea Ripley easily defeated Aliyah, with Robert Stone, after the Riptide.

Johnny Gargano prepares for the main event. Roderick Strong vs. Dexter Lumis is next.

Pre match, Roderick Strong wants nothing to do with Dexter Lumis. Bobby Fish has to push Strong towards the ring.

After minutes of stalling, Strong runs to the back. Therefore, Dexter Lumis wins by count out. They never touched each other. Lumis attacks Fish after the match but Fish escapes.

Backstage, Robert Stone asks William Regal for a rematch against Rhea Ripley. Regal makes a handicap match for next week. Robert Stone & Aliyah vs. Rhea Ripley. Ripley agrees to join the Robert Stone Brand if she loses.

Finn Balor gets ready for the main event and it's next! Looks like the match is going to get 20+ minutes.

Highlights of Io Shirai's win at NXT Takeover: In Your House. Next week, there will be a fatal four way to determine Shirai's next challenger. The participants are Tegan Nox, Dakota Kai, Candice LeRae, and Mia Yim!!

Dexter Lumis vs. Roderick Strong next week in a strap match!!!

Keith Lee defeated Finn Balor and Johnny Gargano in a triple threat match to retain the NXT North American championship!! Balor hit Gargano with the Coup de Grace followed by Lee pinning Balor after the Big Bang Catastrophe!!
