– Before the show, the OC attacked the Undisputed Era in the parking lot. They kick off the show and Styles says that they’re taking over NXT, and that’s not phenomenal, it’s undisputed. Tommaso Ciampa arrives and says he is often asked about when he’d go to the main roster. He welcomes the O.C. to THE main roster and says this is THE show. It’s daddy’s home, and he is fine with them beating up Undisputed but if they want to take over NXT, they’ll have to deal with him. AJ says the three of them aren’t scared of one of him but respect him for being the only person with the balls to say anything. Ciampa is joined on the stage by Matt Riddle and Keith Lee. Ciampa says the three of them are preparing for Undisputed at War Games but they want to go to war with them in a match tonight; AJ agrees.

– Post match, Killian Dain arrives and dumps Priest so that he can destroy Dunne. Priest and Dain brawl some more and Dain stands tall.

– Rhea Ripley picked Tegan Nox and Candice LeRae for War Games while Shyana Baszler picked Bianca Belair and Io Shirai; the final spots are still open.

– Promo time for Dakota Kai, who says that she came back from her injury with more fire. She’ll prove why she deserves a spot in that match when she faces Shayna tonight, and we’ll see what Shayna says after Dakota kicks her face off.

The final score: review Good
The 411
This week’s episode of NXT TV was a really good show, with everything delivering in the ring (minus Taynara vs. Garrett), continued build towards War Games as well as Survivor Series with the OC appearance. I am fascinated to see if NXT’s recent inclusion on Smackdown & Raw will result in a ratings boost.
