NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams invited the entire Judgment Day (Finn Bálor, Rhea Ripley, Damian Priest & Dominik Mysterio) to NXT. WWE Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley appeared on the 6/27 program to confront Hayes and Williams for getting involved in Judgment Day’s business. A video from Bálor aired on the July 4th NXT and he accepted Hayes’ invitation. 

After Mustafa Ali secured a win over Tyler Bate, he issued a challenge to NXT North American Champion Wes Lee for the Great American Bash Premium Live Event on July 30th. 

NXT Underground took place as Eddy Thorpe, who was accompanied to the ring and ‘coached’ by Olympic Gold medalist Gable Steveson, bested Damon Kemp via referee stoppage. Post-match, Steveson suplexed multiple talents that stepped to him.
