Both Ruff and Scott battled back to the ring before the underdog hit a crucifix bomb off the top rope and almost won the match. Later, Scott managed to escape a pinfall by Ruff before goading him into the Confidence Boost for a near-fall.
Ruff nearly won the match after a series of springboard cutters. However, he wanted to make it look majestic, climbing to the top of a nearby stage. However, AJ Francis ruined his plan by catching him from behind. Swerve then planted Ruff with a JML for the win.
Cameron Grimes vs. Asher Hale
Asher Hale was beaten by Cameron Grimes by a pinfall. NXT newcomer Hale challenged Grimes for a match and somehow managed to counter many of the rich man’s signature moves. However, Grimes took the charge of the match later by hitting a Cave-In to win the competition.
Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher vs. Grizzled Young Veterans

Sarray vs. Zayda Ramier
