Kyle O’Reilly made Adam Cole tap out to the Heel Hook

After last week’s melee between Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole, NXT’s special enforcer Samoa Joe was wisely on the scene this week when O’Reilly called out his former best friend. Cole claimed O’Reilly was not only obsessed with him, but that Cole had carried him for four years on NXT, while O’Reilly declared that he was ashamed to be associated with Cole.

Johnny Gargano attacked Karrion Kross throughout the night

The issue between NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Johnny Gargano appears to be far from settled. First, Gargano & Austin Theory ambushed the doomsday destroyer, prompting Kross to later call out Johnny Wrestling. Gargano effectively baited Kross while Theory attacked him from behind, though Kross eventually gained the upper hand and looked to take out Gargano with the steel steps before he was wrangled by security — only to be leveled by a Gargano superkick.

In an unthinkable act, Kross seemingly appeared set on running over Gargano, only for Samoa Joe to pull Gargano out of harm’s way in the nick of time. 

Isaiah “Swerve” Scott def. Bronson Reed to become the new NXT North American Champion

After telling the NXT Universe as much for weeks, Isaiah “Swerve” Scott proved to the whole world he really is built different.

Though Bronson Reed controlled much of the bout, Scott refused to stay down, and it eventually paid off. After remaining uninvolved at ringside for much of the bout, Hit Row made their presence felt, targeting The Colossal Superstar. Reed was ready, sending Top Dolla through the ringside plexiglass in shocking fashion before tossing Ashante “Thee” Adonis over the barricade as well.
