In the first round of the NXT Tag Team Championship Tournament, the Undisputed Era's Kyle O'Reilly and Bobby Fish battled the Heavy Machinery and right out the gate Fish and O'Reilly played mind games against Dozovic and constantly lured him into a 2-on-1 situation before Tucker Knight fought back and had both men on the fence until O'Reilly gained the advantage and the rest went down hill for the two big men before Knight was met with Total Elimination, giving the win the TUE.
In the main event, Gentlemen Jack Gallagher battled EC3 with the winner officially qualifying for the NXT North American Championship Challenge at NXT Takeover: Homecoming and the contest saw both men lay it all on the line, including Gallagher with a headbutt and EC3 executing the TK3, both of whom kicked out, frustrating the "Top One Percenter", who laid out the official but that came back to haunt him when Gallagher pulled out brass knuckles from his tights and knocking out EC3 just as the official was regaining his composure and went on to defeat EC3, officially qualifying for NA Championship Challenge.
