Editor's note: This article references results from NXT's United Kingdom Women's Championship tournament.

Tonight's estimated attendance: 500 people.

- Jessie Elaban won a battle royal for the right to challenge for the NXT United Kingdom Women's Championship later in the night

Elaban, Vanessa Borne, Nikki Cross, and Lacey Evans were the final four. Other participants included: Dakota Kai, Aliyah, Jessamyn Duke, Marina Shafir, Reina Gonzalez, MJ Jenkins, Deonna Purrazzo. Lacey Lane, Taynara Conti, Xia Li, Kavita Devi, and Io Shirai.

- Tony Nese defeated Stacey Ervin Jr.

Nese used a rake of the eyes and a slam into the bottom buckle to steal the win from the exciting newcomer.

- Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch defeated Rinku Singh & Saurav Gurjar

Lorcan & Burch won this quickly.

- Kassius Ohno did an in-ring interview to discuss recently reaching his 20th year in professional wrestling. Adam Cole interrupted and declined a match tonight after saying Ohno has been mediocre and a failure for those 20 years.

- Cezar Bononi (w/ Adrian Jaoude) defeated Boa

Bononi won with a spinning kick.

- Lars Sullivan defeated Keith Lee

They had a hard-hitting and fast-paced match. Sullivan put Lee away with the Freak Accident.

- The Street Profits (Angelo Dawkins & Montez Ford) defeated The Forgotten Sons (Wesley Blake & Jaxson Ryker)

Ford got the win with a frog splash.

- NXT United Kingdom Women's Champion Rhea Ripley defeated Jessie Elaban to retain her title

This match had good action and the crowd was split. Ripley was too powerful for the energetic Elaban.

- Kassius Ohno defeated Adam Cole by DQ

The match was announced as ordered by William Regal after Cole had declined the challenge earlier in the night. They had a great match that got plenty of time.

Both scored near falls with their signature moves before a ref bump. Cole was down for the count before the disqualification came when the Undisputed Era ran in for the attack. The lights went out and the sirens of Cesaro’s music blared as the crowd went nuts. Cesaro and Ohno cleared the ring and celebrated.

Cesaro said he would keep it short and sweet, saying that “Chris is awesome.” Ohno thanked everyone for being there tonight and every night on the Florida NXT “coconut loop.” He spoke about how he can't say wrestling is the best it's ever been since he's only been wrestling for 20 years -- but it's the best he's seen it.
