Before NXT on USA Network went off the air, Grayson Waller ‘took over’ the production truck to address Shawn Michaels once again. Waller invited Michaels onto his ‘Grayson Waller Effect’ talk show at NXT Roadblock on March 7th.

Prior to the Waller segment, Bron Breakker had just defeated Jinder Mahal to retain the NXT Championship. 

After Tony D’Angelo scored a win over Von Wagner, he went on to issue a challenge to Dijak for a ‘Jailhouse Street Fight’ at Roadblock. 

The following matches are scheduled for 2/28: 

  • NXT North American Championship Open Challenge: Wes Lee (c) vs. TBA
  • Meiko Satomura vs. Zoey Stark
  • Carmelo Hayes (w/ Trick Williams) vs. Tyler Bate

In late January, Nikkita Lyons underwent successful surgery for a torn ACL. She appeared on tonight’s NXT in a backstage segment to continue the story about who ‘ambushed’ her in the parking lot area. Tiffany Stratton went back and forth with Lyons about it.

Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince & Kit Wilson) stuck claim to the NXT Tag Team Championships. They took out the current champions, Gallus (Mark Coffey & Wolfgang). Pretty Deadly got the jump on Gallus by sending out decoys that were beat down by the champions. 

During the first hour of the program, The Schism (Joe Gacy, Ava, Jagger Reid & Rip Fowler) confronted Tyler Bate which led to Chase University’s Andre Chase, Duke Hudson and Thea Hail coming to the ring to even the numbers. Chase and Hudson ended up losing to Reid and Fowler as Andre was tending to Thea Hail on the outside after she was startled by Ava. 

Sol Ruca stated that she wants a rematch with Zoey Stark. Sol lost to Zoey on 2/7.
