The August 26, 2020 Edition of NXT was a Professional wrestling television show of the WWE which took place at the Full Sail University in Winter Park, Florida.

Summary

Karrion Kross battled through a separated shoulder to dethrone Keith Lee as NXT Champion at NXT TakeOver: XXX. However, the severity of Kross' injury will prevent him from being medically cleared for the foreseeable future, forcing him to relinquish the NXT Title.

The second time was the charm for Fandango & Tyler Breeze to finally capture their first gold in WWE. Rising to the occasion, Breezango capitalized on a misfired double-team attack by Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner, allowing Fandango to make a much-needed tag to Breeze, who delivered superkicks left and right. After tagging himself back in, Fandango put them away by hitting a double leg drop on both opponents for the massive victory.

The Blackheart made a huge statement in his first NXT action in more than two months, dismantling Jake Atlas in short order. But Tommaso Ciampa wasn't done at the closing bell, pouring on the onslaught in vicious fashion against Atlas, even continuing to attack him after he had been loaded onto a stretcher.

Shotzi Blackheart once again made life living hell for Robert Stone, running him over with her tank for a third time before competing in this match against Mia Yim. Blackheart also took care of business in the ring, defeating The HBIC after a top-rope senton.

After conferring with Triple H, Shawn Michaels and NXT management, the NXT General Manager announced that Finn Bálor, Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole and Johnny Gargano would battle next week in the first-ever, 4-Way 60-minute Iron Man Match to crown a new NXT Champion.

Santos Escobar eschewed the rest of Legado del Fantasma's help, ordering them backstage as he made his way to the ring. However, they eventually got involved before being neutralized at ringside by Breezango joining the fray. Escobar donned a luchadore mask before blasting Isaiah "Swerve" Scott with a huge headbutt to put him away.

Seeking payback for Undisputed ERA's attack during his match two weeks ago, Drake Maverick came into this bout a house of fire, even taking out Bobby Fish and Roderick Strong at ringside with a top-rope senton. Kyle O'Reilly eventually took control, forcing Maverick to submit to a leg lock. Fish and Strong looked to escalate things afterward with a chair until Killian Dain stormed the ring and cleared house before dropping Maverick as well.

Dakota Kai & Raquel González enjoyed some help from Mercedes Martinez, who ambushed Rhea Ripley during this bout, leaving Io Shirai on her own momentarily. Ripley was weakened from Martinez's assault when she finally tagged in, and González took advantage, dropping her with a blistering big boot and a massive slam to pin the former NXT Women's Champion.
