NXT this week featured a title being pulled out of the trash and an eight-man tag team match in the main event.
Zoey Stark would kick off the show after winning the battle royal last week and earning the next shot at Mandy Rose's NXT Women's Championship. Stark challenged Rose to put the title on the line then and there but instead would face Toxic Attraction's Gigi Dolin later in the show. After Stark defeated Dolin and fended off an attack from Jacy Jayne, Cora Jade came out of nowhere to hit her with a kendo stick. This led to Roxanne Perez making the save and sending Jade scurrying out of the ring. It was later announced that Stark will challenge Rose on the August 16 episode branded as NXT Heatwave.
The future of the NXT Women's Tag Team titles was also addressed on this week's show. After Jade tossed her title in the trash last week, Alundra Blayze helped Roxanne Perez pull it back out again this week. Blayze then announced the titles will be decided in a fatal 4-way match next week.
It was also announced that at NXT Heatwave, Bron Breakker will defend the NXT Championship against JD McDonagh.
In the night's main event, The D'Angelo Family picked up the victory against the Diamond Mine, which may lead to further dissension amongst Roderick Strong, Damon Kemp, and the Creed Brothers.
