Updated: Jul 10, 2020

Here's what's set for night two of NXT: Great American Bash:

  • Street Fight: Mia Yim vs. Candice LeRae

  • Six Man Tag Team Match: Breezango & Drake Maverick vs. Legado del Fantasma

  • Mercedes Martinez returns

  • Johnny Gargano vs. Isiah "Swerve" Scott

  • WINNER TAKE ALL for the NXT Championship and the NXT North American Championship: Adam Cole (NXT champ) vs. Keith Lee (NXT North American champ)

We see highlights of last weeks action. Let's see if this week can live up to that.

We're starting tonight with the street fight! Mia Yim attacked Candice LeRae during her entrance and they wasted no time getting weapons involved. These ladies beat the hell out of each other and took the fight all over the building. At one point, Yim drop kicked LeRae off a platform sending LeRae through a table! The finish came when both women were standing on a table bridged across the top ropes in the corner and LeRae hit Ms. LeRae's Wild Ride on Yim off the table onto a pile of chairs!! Candice LeRae defeated Mia Yim in a street fight! This was a good brawl that lasted about 15 minutes.

Mark Henry makes his pick for the main event and he's going with Keith Lee.

Bronson Reed vs. Tony Nese is next. The ladies from the street fight are still laid out in the ring as we head to a commercial. We get a split screen commercial and we see Johnny Gargano come help Candice to the back. Mia Yim makes it back up and sits in a chair to an ovation from those in attendance and then walks out under her own power.

We see how the Bronson Reed vs. Tony Nese match came about earlier today. Bronson Reed defeated Tony Nese after big splash off the top! Tony Nese didn't get a whole lot of offense and I think Reed got the win as we expected him to in about 5 minutes. I'm not sure Nese has done much of anything since he did terrible in the cruiserweight championship tournament.

Mercedes Martinez returns tonight!

Backstage, Robert Stone and Aliyah approach Shotzi Blackheart and try to convince her to join the Robert Stone Brand. Blackheart isn't having it. Stone decides to try to recruit someone else. KILLIAN DAIN is here! Dain whoops Stone's ass. Blackheart runs over Stone with her tank!!! To Stone's credit, Stone screams and sells it like someone rolled over him with a military tank!

Time for Isiah "Swerve" Scott vs. Johnny Gargano! Shawn Michaels said earlier in the day on Twitter that this match could steal the show. This was a really good back and forth match with Swerve getting a chance to shine against Gargano. Swerve almost put Gargano away with the JML Driver but only got a near fall! In the end, Johnny Gargano defeated Isiah "Swerve" Scott with the One Final Beat DDT! The match was about 14 minutes.

We see a video package highlighting NXT Women's champion Io Shirai and Tegan Nox to hype their match for the championship. Their championship match will be NEXT WEEK!!

Keith Lee is warming up for the main event as we see the tale of the tape. Six man tag team action is next...

Breezango mocked Legado del Fantasma with a lucha libre type entrance. Legado del Fantasma controlled most of the match focusing on Fandango's knee as he injured it when he was thrown into the steps. Drake Maverick finally got the hot tag leading to a brawl with all six men. In the closing stretch, Legado del Fantasma defeated Drake Maverick and Breezango in a six man tag team match when Santos Escobar pinned Maverick after the Phantom Driver! The match was about 10 minutes.

Candice LeRae and Johnny Gargano are interviewed backstage where they gloat about their wins. Gargano says he would be beating Adam Cole tonight if it wasn't for Finn Balor. LeRae says they both have a few wrongs that they need to make right.

Drew McIntyre weighs in on the main event and he picks Adam Cole.

Santana Garrett goes one-on-one with Mercedes Martinez next. Poor Santana must have drawn the short straw backstage. I don't like her chances here. Mercedes Martinez defeated Santana Garrett in 2:40 with a fisherman buster. This was an extended squash.

We see highlights of the Damian Priest and Cameron Grimes feud. Priest calls Grimes a little bitch and they'll have a match NEXT WEEK!!

Mick Foley gives his thoughts on the main event and says Adam Cole and Shawn Michaels goes with Cole also but says a part of him thinks it could be Keith Lee. THE MAIN EVENT IS NEXT!

"One Turns to None" by Asking Alexandria is the official theme for NXT: Great American Bash.

Champion vs. Champion: WINNER TAKE ALL! This match has had huge hype and rumored spoilers online. They both get hyped up entrances and commentary plays it up that it's the most important match in NXT history. It's hard to argue that given the stakes. Early in the match, Adam Cole side stepped a charging Keith Lee and Lee went through the ringside plexiglass! Cole controlled most of the early portion of the match. Cole taunted before setting Lee up for the Last Shot and that's when Lee began to turn the tide. At one point, Lee was on the top and lifted Cole from the apron up and over for a huge superplex for a near fall! Lee hit Cole with a massive Spirit Bomb but Cole was able to literally get ONE FINGER on the ropes!! Lee hit a big moonsault from the second rope but only got a near fall. Lee set Cole up for the Big Bang Catastrophe but Cole countered with a pair of super kicks. More super kicks followed by THE LAST SHOT!! LEE KICKS OUT!! COLE IS SHOCKED!! Cole sets up for another but eats a big clothesline! PANAMA SUNRISE TO LEE!! LEE KICKS OUT AGAIN!! Cole sets up Lee and hits three more super kicks! 2 count!! Cole sets Lee up for another and hits THE LAST SHOT AGAIN!! Cole goes for another Panama Sunrise and LEE CATCHES HIM WITH A SPIRIT BOMB!!! BIG BANG CATASTROPHE!!! IT'S OVER @ 19:34!!! KEITH LEE IS NXT CHAMPION AND NXT NORTH AMERICAN CHAMPION!!! BASK IN HIS GLORY!!!! LEE CELEBRATES AS CONFETTI RAINS DOWN ON HIM!! KARRION KROSS AND SCARLETT WATCH FROM A PRESS BOX!

This is what's scheduled for next week:

  • Damian Priest vs. Cameron Grimes

  • NXT Women's Championship Match: Tegan Nox vs. Io Shirai (champ)
