The main event of NXT Spring Breakin’ saw Bron Breakker successfully defend the NXT Championship against Joe Gacy. Following Breakker’s win, two druids got on the ring apron and stared Breakker down as the show went off the air.

The North American Championship remains in Cameron Grimes’ possession following his win over Solo Sikoa and Carmelo Hayes in a Triple-Threat to open the show.

Scheduled for next week’s NXT 2.0 is Alba Fyre (Kay Lee Ray’s) first in-ring appearance since undergoing her name change. In addition to that, NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne are taking on Wendy Choo and Roxanne Perez in a non-title bout.

MTV’s ‘The Challenge’ star Mark Long was in attendance to support Grayson Waller. Waller went one-on-one with NXT UK’s Nathan Frazer and fell in defeat to Frazer after a distraction from Andre Chase.
