In the main case, the team Ricochet, Pete Dunne and War Raiders managed to take out the undisputed time in the second game of NXT War Games full of bloodbaths, slander and brutality. Although Adam Cole, Roderick Strong, Kyle Reilly and Bobby Fish foursome almost adorned their opponents by locking Pete Dunne in their cell to give them a widespread advantage, the NXT United Kingdom champion would finally arrive at the ring as tables, chairs, kendo sticks and trash filled up the ring.
There were a number of wild spots that included a tower of paints from the cage that took out seven of the eight competitors. The last man who stood, Ricochet, would deliver an incredibly inspiring moment when he completed a double backflip from the top of the cage and on the beach of bodies below. There were also questions about Dunn’s credibility to his teammates, as both members of War Raiders would drive Dunne back into the cell when his number rang and took his place. Dunne would have several exciting moments where he managed to take out all four members of undoubted time when the pack surrounded him like wolves.
The closing sequence saw Adam Cole almost pick up his second consecutive victory for his team in the event when he destroyed a floating Ricochet with a super kick and clobbered Dunne with a brilliant wizard. However, Dunne would not take the three bills, dodged another brilliant wizard’s attempt and spotted the bitter end. A nearby Ricochet would finish the finish when the NXT North American champion struck a 450 splash as both Dunne and Ricochet, formerly enemies, covered Cole for the victory.
Tommaso Ciampa moved narrowly with the NXT championship against Velveteen Dream.
The dream had the audience at the Staples Center to eat out of the palm of his hand when he went on wearing N.W.O. black and white as “Hollywood Dream”. There were several callbacks to Hogan as Dream sank up, hit a big boot and almost snared the title with a trio of leg drops. But the unpleasant Ciampa would not renounce his title so easily. The duo fought with a tooth and nail all the time as Dream came sharply to become the new champion after meeting a dream driver on an exposed concrete floor and followed by Purple Rainmaker. Ciampa would kick out, avoid a second Purple Rainmaker and Spike Dream with a DDT on the iron partition between both rings to keep the title.
Aleister Black had to channel his wildness against Johnny Gargano to revenge on the man who attacked him and extinguished him several months ago. Gargano was one step ahead of the striker early, but the former NXT champion was simply too much for his opponent. A pair of Black Masks eventually ruled Gargano of their violations and put Black back on track to keep the title as he dropped to Ciampa.
In an evil sprint, Shayna Baszler used a little help from Four Horsewomen Marina Shafir and Jessamyn Duke to keep the NXT Women’s Championship against Kairi Sane. Baszler used the help of her MMA friends early to get a quick fall with a shock. But Sane equaled the score after an evil tip DDT on the ring apron and an In-Sane elbow got the three bills. But with Io Sharai and Dakota Kai who come to Sanes’s help, Baszler would benefit from a missed In-Sane elbow to quickly roll up Sane for the three bills.
After some rubbish, the NXT newcomer Matt Riddle talked the world with the notice of a flashy finish by Kassius Ohno in the opening book. Riddle challenged Ohno to open the show. Ohno answered, asked the judge to call the clock and would stop his bell ringing by a flying knee from the Kingdom of Bro. Three seconds later and that’s all she wrote.
