Winter Park, FL – Full Sail Live
Dark Match: Luke Menzies defeated Sean Maluta
In-Ring: Johnny Gargano, Tommaso Ciampa, Velveteen Dream – Gargano out, crowd is chanting “Johnny Champion” with a small minority chanting “Johnny Sucks.” He says it feels great to be North American Champion. “You deserve it” chants. Johnny says “Yes, WE deserve it.” Johnny Wrestling is back. Ciampa is out, he’s here to celebrate Johnny’s moment. He says Gargano got the belt because he followed Ciampa’s lead, together they own the world. Johnny says there is no “our moment” with Ciampa. Johnny Gargano will NEVER need Ciampa. Velveteen Dream out, he thinks this is cute, but tonight is not about them, tonight is about the man who stole Takeover: Phoenix by simply showing up. Velveteen Dream won the Worlds Collide Tournament and has earned an NXT title shot of his choosing. Velveteen Dream doesn’t want Ciampa, he wants a shot at Johnny Gargano and the North American Title. Dream just wants to know if when they finally go one on one it will be Johnny Wrestling or Johnny Jackass standing across from him. The crowd has turned on Gargano like 3 or 4 times in this one segment, that feels like a lot even for Full Sail.
Jaxson Ryker defeated Mansoor – After the match, The Forgotten Sons cut a promo about how they are overlooked in NXT and everyone should take notice. They will be the ones remembered as the team that takes the Tag Titles from The War Raiders.
Drew Gulak defeated Bugenhagen – Bugenhagen was a new crowd favorite at Full Sail. After the match, Gulak yells at the crowd for not showing him the proper respect. If there is someone in the back who wants to get stretched to come out now. Out comes Matt Riddle.
Matt Riddle defeated Drew Gulak – Riddle & Gulak did the Catch Point handshake after the match.
In-Ring: Bugenhagen – Bugenhagen is out to do an encore performance, the crowd LOVES him.
Bianca Belair, Io Shirai & Kairi Sane defeated Shayna Baszler, Jessamyn Duke & Marina Shafir – Io Shirai pinned Baszler after hitting a moonsault.
Dominik Dijakovic defeated Shane Thorne
In-Ring: Kassius Ohno, Keith Lee – Humberto Carrillo & Stacey Ervin Jr out for a tag match. Kassius Ohno comes out, says he’s been back in NXT for two years. He was sitting in the back and saw the “Notorious” Full Sail crowd. He says he detests Full Sail and he’s OUT OF HERE. He says he has options and he will go somewhere he can be appreciated. Keith Lee comes out and KOs Kassius Ohno. Keith Lee says don’t let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.
Street Profits defeated Humberto Carrillo & Stacey Ervin Jr.
In-Ring: Street Profits, Marcel Barthel & Fabian Aichner, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch, War Raiders, Undisputed Era – After the above match, the Street Profits get on the mic and call out the War Raiders but Barthel & Aichner come out instead and say that they deserve a shot at War Raiders. Lorcan & Burch come out get in everyone’s face. War Raiders come out, say there is a lot of talking but not a lot of fighting. Undisputed Era attack, everyone brawls, War Raiders stand tall.
Aliyah defeated Taynara Conti – Aliyah won with some help from Vanessa Borne. Horsewomen out and attack everyone post match. Shayna says do not get in their way and do not piss them off.
Ricochet defeated Adam Cole – Undisputed Era attacks after the match. Aleister Black tried to make the save but also gets taken out.
Punishment Martinez defeated Riddick Moss

Mia Yim defeated Xia Li – The Horsewomen do another run in attack. Jessie Elaban, Lacey Lane, and MJ Jenkins try and make the save but The Horsewomen took everyone out.
NXT North American Championship: Johnny Gargano (c) vs. Velveteen Dream – Velveteen Dream originally won the match with the Purple Rainmaker, winning the title. But as he was celebrating with the title, Gargano attacked him and made him tap out with the Gargano Escape, then took back the title. He then posed victoriously with Tommaso Ciampa on the ramp, with both raising their titles like at the end of TakeOver. Gargano also took a look at Ciampa’s title though… There was some confusion with this ending and it’s possible that they taped two separate endings in order to circumvent spoilers…
