Ladder Match Qualifier: Santos Escobar (w/ Legado) vs. Cameron Grimes

This was a back-and-forth, exciting match between two of NXT 2.0’s best. The near-falls were memorable and didn’t overly rely on the two men’s signature moves. It was surprising to see Grimes lose, but Escobar has been well-protected in NXT more so than The Technical Savage. It is still possible that Grimes could find his way into the ladder match.

A-Kid vs. Kushida (w/ Ikemen Jiro)

It was announced during the previous contest that the winner of this match would face Grayson Waller in a qualifier for the NXT North American Championship ladder match. Kushida seemed to have A-Kid’s number early on, but the NXT UK star answered him counter for counter. Kid shocked the Japanese Superstar with a tilt-a-whirl DDT to win.

Tiffany Stratton vs. Sarray

Tiffany Stratton attacked Sarray on her way to the ring. The attack continued into the ring. Once the bell rang, it took less than a minute for Stratton to take the win via a corkscrew senton off the second rope. Stratton hit a smooth corkscrew senton out of the corner.

Tony D’Angelo Takes His Shot at Tommaso Ciampa Ahead of NXT Stand & Deliver

He is disappointed he won’t be the NXT champion on WrestleMania weekend, and he said he had no idea what he would do. Tony D’Angelo came in with a crowbar that he dropped. He said he respected The Blackheart, but after they shook hands to agree to a match at NXT Stand & Deliver, D’Angelo kneed him between the legs.

Indi Hartwell vs. Persia Pirotta

Persia Pirotta went after Indi Hartwell’s wedding ring, which set off Indi Wrestling. Duke Hudson got involved to distract Hartwell, but Dexter Lumis arrived to counter. This allowed Hartwell to roll up Pirotta for three. Hartwell and Pirotta walked out together as though they were still a team but could not stop pushing each other on the way to the ring.

Dominik Mysterio (w/ Rey Mysterio) vs. Raul Mendoza (w/ Legado)

Santos Escobar cut a promo backstage, putting himself over as the greatest luchador. Rey Mysterio and Dominik Mysterio arrived, and The Master of the 619 told Escobar his son would bring lucha libre to the next generation. Raul Mendoza agreed to fight Dominik. Raul Mendoza was no match for Dominik Mysterio without help from Legado Del Fantasma. Fallon Henley, Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen evened the odds. This allowed Dominik to hit a 619 and frog splash to win.

Cora Jade Tries to Embarrass Toxic Attraction/Imperium Agree to Triple Threat

Dakota Kai and Wendy Choo told Toxic Attraction they did not appreciate their recent interference. The Creed Brothers took the ring, demanding to know who attacked them. MSK came out to make clear they did not attack the No. 1 contenders. However, MSK wanted their title match as well. Imperium agreed to a Triple Threat at NXT Stand & Deliver for the NXT Tag Team Championship.

NXT Championship: Dolph Ziggler (c) (w/ Robert Roode) vs. LA Knight

Bron Breakker arrived as Knight seemed to be finding his stride against Ziggler. Roode distracted Knight enough to get Ziggler close to the apron. This allowed him to get his foot on the rope for a near-fall. Ziggler sent Knight into two turnbuckles before hitting a superkick to win and retain. After the finish, Breakker stormed out and challenged Ziggler for a match at NXT Stand & Deliver. The Showoff accepted after the challenger laid out The Glorious One with a right hand.
