NXT's final build to TakeOver: Stand & Deliver took place last night.
In the main event of last night's go-home show, a battle royal decided the participants for the Gauntlet Eliminator match at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night one. LA Knight won the battle royal and will enter the Gauntlet Eliminator last. Leon Ruff will enter first, followed by Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, Bronson Reed, Cameron Grimes, Dexter Lumis, and Knight.
The winner of the Gauntlet Eliminator will challenge for Johnny Gargano's NXT North American Championship at TakeOver: Stand & Deliver night two.
After a confrontation earlier in the show, Pete Dunne and Kushida simultaneously eliminated each other from the battle royal. It was then announced that Dunne vs. Kushida will take place at TakeOver night one. A new match was also added to night two, with Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon defending their NXT Women's Tag Team titles against Candice LeRae & Indi Hartwell.
Last night's show featured promos and video packages building up matches for TakeOver, including a Prime Target special feature focused on Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly's unsanctioned match at TakeOver night two. Io Shirai and Raquel Gonzalez, who will face off for the NXT Women's Championship in the main event of TakeOver night one, brawled throughout last night's show. It ended with Shirai standing tall after hitting a springboard crossbody to the outside.
