Losing team joins the winning team’s stable
The opening bout of the premium live event saw The Family – Tony D’Angelo, Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo, and Troy “Two Dimes” Donovan – take on Legado del Fantasma – Santos Escobar, Cruz Del Toro, and Joaquin Wilde – with the stipulation that the losing team would have to join the winning team’s stable. Before the match, the referee was encouraged to search the ring for foreign objects and he found Tony D’s crowbar hidden behind the ring steps. The match began with the fast paced stylings of the underlings from each team before the kings of each stable, D’Angelo and Escobar, tagged in and handled their business in the ring for the first time. Later in the match, when Santos went for a move on the top rope but he was pushed off and crashed into the ring. Del Toro and Wilde returned momentum back to Legado before things broke down and both teams secured weapons. Joaquin Wilde knocked out Stacks with a crowbar but when Tony D found Escobar’s brass knuckles and used them to take out Wilde.

NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship – Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne) (c) vs. Katana Chance and Kayden Carter
The next contest was the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championship match with Katana Chance and Kayden Carter challenging the champions, Toxic Attraction. Before the bell, Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne jumped their challengers but this backfired when Chance and Carter gained the advantage. The challengers fought well after the bell but the cheap tactics of Toxic Attraction allowed the champions to make frequent tags and isolate Katana from Kayden. Later in the match, Carter was able to take out Jayne with a Cutter on the ring apron which the challengers followed up with a double team manoeuvre to achieve a two count. From outside the ring, though, Jacy Jayne struck Kayden Carter which allowed Dolin to drop her on her head with a German Suplex and pick up the 1-2-3.

NXT North American Championship – Cameron Grimes (c) vs. Carmelo Hayes (with Trick Williams)
The quest to #GetItBack was on next when Carmelo Hayes challenged Cameron Grimes for the NXT North American Championship. The fast paced stylings of both men led to a few stalemates and nearfalls in the early part of the match and the pair passed the momentum back and forth for the majority. Hayes started to build an advantage after delivering a DDT to the ring apron but, once back in the ring, Carmelo was unable to keep the champion down. Trick Williams got involved from the outside of the ring but Grimes fought back and delivered a Springboard Spanish Fly type move to get himself back into the contest. Grimes kicked Hayes in the face from the ring apron and got a nearfall after a Spinout Urinagi. Trick Williams got involved again but ate a Cave In for his troubles but this distraction was enough to launch Grimes into the ringpost and deliver a Leg Drop from the top rope, pick up the win and #GetItBack.

NXT Women’s Championship – Mandy Rose (c) vs. Wendy Choo
It was time to see if dreams would become reality next as Wendy Choo dreamed of becoming the NEW NXT Women’s Champion at the expense of the reigning, defending champion, Mandy Rose. During the introductions, Choo tried to launch a teddy bear at Rose which drew the ire of the champion. When the match began, Rose continued her dominance, verbally berating Choo as she wore her down with a number of submissions. Choo built a small amount of momentum but Rose put a quick and sudden stop to it with a Spinebuster on the ramp. Rose went for the kill with a knee in the corner but Choo used her body cushion to block the blow. The champion destroyed the pillow and threw it into the crowd but this allowed Choo to surprise Mandy with a Sleeper Hold. Choo went for a top rope manoeuvre but Rose threw her down and delivered a Running Knee to retain her Women’s Championship.

NXT Tag Team Championship – Pretty Deadly (Elton Prince and Kit Wilson) (c) vs. The Creed Brothers (Brutus Creed and Julius Creed)
Up next was the NXT Tag Team Championship match with The Creed Brothers challenging Pretty Deadly. The pressure was on for the Creeds because if they did not win the match, they would be out of Diamond Mine. As the match began, Brutus Creed dominated Kit Wilson with his amateur wrestling ability. Julius tagged in and continued where his brother left off, manhandling Elton Prince with the same skill. The Creeds had complete control of the match for the majority until Pretty Deadly were able to drop Julius Creed on the ring steps with a double team manoeuvre and finally build some offense of their own. This only lasted while they were able to isolate Julius and his weakened back and so when Brutus got into the match, he delivered a Cannonball from the top rope and achieved a nearfall. Elton Prince tried to slip the title belt to his partner but Julius intercepted it and returned it to the referee. Julius then went to the top rope, delivered a Shooting Star Press and followed it up with a Basement Clothesline to become the NXT Tag Team Champions for the first time.

NXT Championship – Bron Breakker (c) vs. Joe Gacy
If Breakker is disqualified, he will lose the championship
The In Your House main event saw Bron Breakker defend the NXT Championship against Joe Gacy with the stipulation that if Breakker was disqualified, he would lose the title. During the introductions, Gacy did his best to rile up the champion by slapping him as he held up the championship belt. Breakker started the match aggressively but held his composure enough to not take things too far and be disqualified. Bron’s holding back could have been the reason that Gacy was able to take control of the match, though, and he started to wear down the champion with a Senton on the ring apron and submissions in the middle of the ring. Bron Breakker pulled out every stop he could inside the rules and took back control by dropping Gacy from the ring apron and diving over the top rope to crush him at ringside. Frustrated, Gacy channelled his best Eddie Guererro and after striking the mat with a chair, tossed it to Breakker and dropped in order to try and force a disqualification. This almost worked but another referee came to the ring to set the score straight. Breakker continued his dominance, knocking Gacy from the ring apron and through the announce table at ringside. Back in the ring, Gacy once again handed Breakker a chair and invited him to use it. Bron handed it to the official but was low blowed while the referee was distracted. With yet another chair, Bron hit one of Gacy druids. Breakker then delivered a Spear to Gacy and finished things off with the Shoulder Press Slam to retain his NXT Championship.
