As a significantly more experienced team, Imperium controlled much of the action. However, the decisive moment had very little to do with Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel. Matt Riddle's monkey flip inadvertently sent Barthel flying into Timothy Thatcher, and a fed-up Thatcher walked out on Riddle, who was desperately seeking a tag. The Original Bro succumbed to the 2-on-1 disadvantage, suffering the pinfall defeat after the European Bomb crowned new champions.
Backstage, Riddle and Thatcher came to blows, and NXT General Manager William Regal granted The Original Bro a bout against Thatcher later in the evening.
"Impressive" Indi Hartwell showed no fear in her bid for an upset, but Tegan Nox was up to the task, taking down Hartwell with the Shiniest Wizard.
Jake Atlas put Tony Nese away with a top-rope "Rainbow DDT," keeping his hopes of becoming Interim NXT Cruiserweight Champion alive.
Cameron Grimes found the biggest win of his career thanks to an assist from Damian Priest. The Archer of Infamy struck Finn Bálor in the back of the knee with his trusty nightstick, leaving him a sitting duck for The Technical Savage's Cave-In for the victory.
Priest wasn't done, though, as he dropped The Prince with the Reckoning and revealed himself as the man who took out Bálor last month.
Isaiah "Swerve" Scott's dreams of winning the Interim NXT Cruiserweight Title were dashed thanks to Tony Nese. The Premier Athlete took out his frustrations on Scott, viciously attacking him before this bout and leaving him vulnerable, which resulted in a victory for Jack Gallagher.
Robert Stone was at ringside to get a first-hand look at Aliyah's performance, but he may have not liked what he saw as Aliyah tapped out to Kayden Carter's deathlock submission.
Timothy Thatcher used surgical precision to pick apart the already weakened Matt Riddle from his backstage attack earlier in the evening. While Thatcher showcased the full extent of his technical prowess, The Original Bro turned one of his precisely applied holds into a pinfall out of thin air to steal the win. Thatcher was far from done with Riddle, though, locking him in the Fujiwara Armbar afterward and refusing to let go while Riddle screamed in agony.
