"Swerve" improved his tournament record to 1-1 in crafty fashion, dealing El Hijo del Fantasma his first loss by pinning him with a crucifix roll-up after an exciting back-and-forth encounter.
"The Poison Pixie" has a new attitude, and it already appears to be paying dividends in the ring. Accompanied by husband Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae knocked off Kacy Catanzaro in vicious fashion, putting her away with the "Wicked Stepsister" — a surfboard face smash.
Already demonstrating instant in-ring chemistry in their first title defense, Matt Riddle & Timothy Thatcher showed they were also on the same page out of the ring during "The Newly-Bro Show." But the fun came to an end when Imperium's Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel sent them a devastating message.
Charlotte Flair looked comfortable in her first match since reclaiming her throne on the black-and-gold brand, forcing Mia Yim to submit with the Figure-Eight Leg Lock. The Queen wasn't able to soak in her victory for long, though, as Io Shirai immediately confronted her ahead of their title showdown next week.
The NXT Universe still knows very little about Dexter Lumis, but they've definitely learned he's a force to be reckoned with in the ring. He knocked off another opponent this week, making quick work of Shane Thorne with a modified Uranage before transitioning directly into the Anaconda Vice.
Despite being disrespected and underestimated by Tony Nese, Drake Maverick dug deep to keep his hopes alive, improving his tournament record to 1-1 after a massive avalanche bulldog.
Overcoming a bruised larynx suffered last week at the hands of Damian Priest, Keith Lee overcame The Archer of Infamy in perhaps his gutsiest performance yet. The Limitless Superstar thwarted Priest's attempt to once again use his nightstick, pinning him after a pair of huge Spirit Bombs.
