A vignette hypes another NXT Breakout Tournament. The only other one was in 2019. NXT North American Bronson Reed is interviewed and he mentions that's how he got his start. Hit Row interrupts. Isaiah "Swerve" Scott challenges Reed to a title match tonight and Reed accepts!
Kross heads to the ring and calls out Gargano. "Johnny Wrestling" chants from the crowd. Austin Theory attacks Kross from behind. We get a big brawl that is eventually broken up by Samoa Joe and security. Kross sarcastically tells Joe he's doing a hell of a job and Scarlett says he'll pay.
Battery is 61%. I'm intrigued.....
The Way escape the building.
Roderick Strong defeats Asher Hale in a squash. It's good to see Strong leading a faction. Strong displayed a new found aggression. Post match, we get a promo from Malcom Bivens where he says the Diamond Mine is open for business.
Cameron Grimes wins a squash against Ari Sterling. Post match, LA Knight comes out and runs down Grimes. Grimes wants a Million Dollar Championship match. Knight initially declines but then agrees as long as Grimes becomes Knight's butler if he loses. It'll take place at the Great American Bash.
NXT Women's Tag Team Champions Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell interrupt Zoey Stark and Io Shirai's interview. The champs say they'll win next week because they're family and Stark/Shirai aren't even friends. Shirai reminds LeRae that LeRae has never beaten her.
Kyle O'Reilly heads to the ring and calls out Adam Cole. Samoa Joe comes out instead to make sure we don't get a brawl like we did last week. O'Reilly talks about their history and Cole says O'Reilly is obsessed with him. Cole takes a jab at O'Reilly's wife which leads to a brawl. O'Reilly gets a knee bar on Cole and Cole screams at Joe to get him off. JOE JUST WALKS OFF!!
Now we're at 71% battery.
Hit Row has a promo to get Swerve hyped for the main event.
Xia Li and Boa defeat Mercedes Martinez and Jake Atlas in a mixed tag team match. The match was seemingly cut short when it appeared that Li knocked Martinez out with a kick! Props to the ref for stopping the match.
MSK and Ciampa/Thatcher for the face off now. They argue over who the underdogs are next week. Things get heated and Ciampa gets slapped. MSK is ready to fight and Ciampa holds back Thatcher.
William Regal is interviewed about the Great American Bash. Sarray is here and she wants a match with Toni Storm. Regal will consider it.
Battery is 81% now. Will it be full at the Great American Bash?
Kross and Scarlett go to leave the building and are attacked by Gargano and Theory! Kross gets a car door slammed on him but he ends up choking out Gargano. Kross and Scarlett leave. Joe eventually comes and helps Gargano up.
In the main event, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott defeated Bronson Reed to become the NEW NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPION!! Swerve gets the victory with an assist from Hit Row. The win definitely helps elevate the group but one can help but wonder if Reed is heading to the "main" roster. Since Reed has recently been at Main Event tapings, that could be the case. Time will tell. If he's not heading to Raw or Smackdown, it seems soon to cut his championship reign short.
Apologies for no detailed coverage this week. Join us next week for the Great American Bash!
