The May 27, 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

Drake Maverick again stunned the NXT Universe, albeit this time with some controversy. Replays revealed that Maverick pinned Kushida for the three-count a split-second after Jake Atlas tapped to Kushida's armbar, but the original ruling stood. Later in the evening, Kushida showed Maverick his respect, urging the underdog to go win one more and become champion.

Johnny Gargano offered up-and-comer Adrian Alanis what he called a golden opportunity, but it proved to be little more than an opportunity for Gargano to bully the young Superstar. But Johnny Wrestling didn't have the last laugh, as Keith Lee and Mia Yim poked fun at the Garganos with a dinner party of their own.

What was supposed to be a one-on-one encounter nearly devolved into an all-out melee between multiple adversaries. Tegan Nox came to ringside to try to thwart Dakota Kai's attempts to interfere on her enforcer's behalf, but Kai still left her mark, assisting in Raquel González's victory while the referee was distracted by Nox's confrontation with Candice LeRae.

Choosing Chelsea Green as her partner paid off for The Queen. Green sacrificed herself in service of Charlotte Flair, pushing her out of the way to eat Io Shirai's springboard missile dropkick before Shirai inadvertently struck Rhea Ripley moments later. The NXT Women's Champion pinned Shirai with use of the ropes for leverage, stealing victory in a way that would make The Dirtiest Player in the Game proud.

After labored negotiations with NXT General Manager William Regal, Adam Cole agreed to give Velveteen Dream another opportunity at his NXT Title — under the condition that Dream would never again be allowed to challenge him. Meanwhile, Regal declared that he would find a special location for the match where Cole and Dream could shine in the spotlight they so crave.

The Blackheart made short work of Leon Ruff in his first action since One Final Beat against Johnny Gargano, but he wasn't alone. Scarlett came to ringside to get a closer look at Tommaso Ciampa, who also received a stern message from his NXT TakeOver: In Your House opponent afterward.

The first-ever NXT Fight Pit played host to a barbaric showdown between the former tag team partners with WWE Hall of Famer Kurt Angle as special guest referee. Matt Riddle landed a massive blow when he launched himself off the side off the cage for a kick that knocked Timothy Thatcher's teeth loose. After Thatcher assured the doctor at ringside that he could continue, he and Riddle eventually took their clash to higher ground atop the scaffolding surrounding the ring. The Original Bro sent Thatcher crashing to the ring below with a ripcord knee before dropping jaws with a Floating Bro from high above. But Thatcher claimed victory, refusing to relinquish a rear-naked choke and rendering The Original Bro unconscious, despite Riddle's best efforts.
