When Judgment Day showed up on the 7/11 NXT, Dominik Mysterio challenged Wes Lee for his North American Championship and their match is taking place on next week’s program. 

In the main event, Finn Bálor and Damian Priest took on Trick Williams and NXT Champion Carmelo Hayes. Women’s World Champion Rhea Ripley slid Priest his Money in the Bank briefcase to use on Hayes. Hayes’ opponent at Great American Bash, Ilja Dragunov, came down to the ring and stopped Priest from using the briefcase. The champion charged at Priest but ended up knocking Dragunov off the apron as Priest sidestepped. Damian capitalized on that, tagged Bálor in and for the second time, he pinned the NXT Champion. 

Joe Coffey and Channing ‘Stacks’ Lorenzo went one-on-one and if Stacks won, he secured Tony D’Angelo’s release from prison but if he lost, D’Angelo would have to go to trial. Coffey hit Stacks with a lariat which he kicked out of and then Coffey began to yell that they had a deal in place. D’Angelo called in live from prison and stated that Stacks would never trust Gallus. There was a point in the match when Bronco Nima and Lucien Price appeared and confronted NXT Tag Team Champions Mark Coffey and Wolfgang. Stacks went on to defeat Joe Coffey and on the 7/18 NXT, there is going to be a homecoming celebration for D’Angelo.
