The contract signing for the NXT title match in Toronto took place. Everything was set up in the ring, but Samoa Joe came out and set up his own table a safe distance away on the stage.

Nakamura power bombed the final guard through the table and stared Joe down intensely.
15. Sanity defeated Kota Ibushi and TJ Perkins in a Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic second round match. In a presumably dark segment afterwards, Sanity came back down to the ring to attack Ibushi and Perkins when Shinsuke Nakamura ran out to make the save and took out all the members of Sanity.
