On the June 6 episode of NXT, Dana Brooke and Cora Jade were the last two participants eliminated in a battle royal to determine the number one contender for the NXT Women's Championship. The following week, Jade interrupted Brooke during an interview, with Jade blaming Brooke for her elimination before slapping her. Later that night, Jade would take on Thea Hail, however, Brooke would cost Jade the match. As a result, a match between Brooke and Jade was scheduled for week one of Gold Rush.

During the match, the teams of Hank Walker and Tank Ledger and Josh Briggs and Brooks Jensen had been watching at ringside.

At Battleground on May 28, North American Champion Wes Lee defeated Tyler Bate and Joe Gacy in a Triple Threat Match to retain his title. On the May 30 episode of NXT, Lee and Bate faced The Dyad (Jagger Reid and Rip Fowler). During the match, Mustafa Ali appeared in the crowd, making his return to NXT. On the June 13 episode of NXT, Lee, Bate, and Ali defeated Gacy, Reid, and Fowler in a Six Man Tag Team Match. Later that night, Ali proposed that Lee defend his North American Championship against Bate with Ali as guest referee. Lee and Bate agreed and the match was later made official for week one of Gold Rush.

On the June 6 episode of NXT, Bron Breakker called out World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins, challenging him to a match. The following week, Rollins appeared in a video, accepting Breakker's challenge. As a result, the match was made official for week one of Gold Rush.
