The following matches were taped on March 13 in Winter Park, Florida at Full Sail University for tonight’s NXT television show.
-Triple H said he wanted to announce Tommaso Ciampa vs. Johnny Gargano for the NXT Championship, but that match can no longer happen (due to Ciampa’s injury). Hunter announced Ricochet vs. Adam Cole vs. Aleister Black vs. Velveteen Dream vs. Matt Riddle in a five-way match, and the winner will face Gargano in a best of three falls match for the vacant NXT Championship at NXT Takeover: New York.
-Adam Cole defeated Ricochet, Aleister Black, Velveteen Dream, and Matt Riddle in a five-way to earn the right to face Gargano for the NXT Championship at NXT Takeover: New York. Cole pinned Ricochet to win the match. The Forgotten Sons attacked Ricochet and Black afterward.
-Punishment Martinez defeated Riddick Moss.
-Humberto Carrillo defeated Albert Hardie Jr. (a/k/a ACH).
