This week’s NXT opened with Mauro Ranallo making his return to commentary after the controversy involving Corey Graves last week. Ranallo was interrupted by Killian Dian, who demanded an opponent for a matchup.
Killian Dain def. Pete Dunne: The Beast from Belfast took down the former NXT UK Champion in a hard-hitting match to kick off the night. Dain fell on the ground with Dunne on his back in the sleeper hold position to get the pinfall victory.
The Undisputed Era made their way to the ring without the injured Bobby Fish. NXT Champion Adam Cole took the mic and talked about their dominance throughout the month of November on all three brands.
Cole also talked about Finn Balor‘s betrayal last week, and how he wants answers for Balor’s actions. Keith Lee interrupted and reminded Cole of last week when Lee destroyed Cole with a tackle. Lee got in a brawl with the trio, before Tommaso Ciampa joined the fun. Ciampa and Lee cleared out the ring, and Ciampa held the NXT Title up high to a major pop.
Shayna Baszler def. Xia Li: Before the match, Li promised to take revenge for the attack by Baszler and her goons from last week. Baszler took the victory with the Kirifuda Clutch in a dominant performance.
Kassius Ohno called himself the best British Superstar in the world and hyped the upcoming NXT v NXT UK battle at Royal Rumble weekend next month.
The Forgotten Sons def. Leon Ruff and Adrian Alanis: The Forgotten Sons squashed the two enhancement talents in a rather quick win.
Rhea Ripley vs. Dakota Kai never started as Mia Yim made her way out to the ring and launched a vicious attack on her WarGames attacker Kai. Ripley was attacked by Baszler, Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke. The former NXT UK Women’s Champion tried to fight it off but the numbers proved too much for her. Baszler took the mic and said she’ll defend her title against Ripley in two weeks’ time.
Tommaso Ciampa and Keith Lee, along with Dominik Dijakovic hype the main-event match against the Undisputed Era, in a repeat of the War Games battle.
Matt Riddle def. Kassius Ohno: The Ultimate Bro took down Ohno in a fun matchup. Riddle brought out his ultimate game and eventually won with the Bro Derek.
Kushida def. Cameron Grimes: Kushida made his return from injury and was scheduled to face Raul Mendoza, who was attacked by Cameron Grimes. Grimes and Kushida went at it before the Japanese superstar won with a roll-up after thwarting a German Suplex attempt.
Keith Lee, Dominik Dijakovic and Tommaso Ciampa def. The Undisputed Era: In a thrilling main-event encounter, the babyfaces overcame the most dominant faction in NXT. Finn Balor attacked Cole and Ciampa in the match, but Lee eventually hit the Jackhammer on Cole for the victory.
Post Match, William Regal announced a triple threat between Lee, Balor, and Ciampa to determine the next challenger for Cole’s title.
