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. 

Scheduled for July 11th is a singles match between Channing ‘Stacks’ Lorenzo and Joe Coffey. If Stacks loses, Tony D’Angelo will remain in prison until his trail. If Stacks wins, the charges against D’Angelo will be dropped and he’ll be set free. 

A vignette aired on tonight’s program that featured Baron Corbin burning items that are linked to past characters of his in WWE. 

Kelani Jordan scored a win over Tatum Paxley and she’ll be back in action on 7/11 against Cora Jade. Below are more announcements for the next NXT on USA Network: 

  • Bronco Nima & Lucien Price’s NXT TV in-ring debuts
  • Tiffany Stratton vs. Ivy Nile
