On the stage, Trick Williams said I’m dismayed Ilja Dragunov hasn’t been allowed to play tonight. Carmelo Hayes also said that I don’t believe it. I believe Ilja knew that Williams had been training alongside me, and got scared, and that’s a sure loss. Grayson Waller showed up and said to Williams that there was no way beat Ilja. Williams declared that”I’m Iron Survivor. Waller claimed I’m the first Iron Survivor back when you were Carmelo’s Valet. I’m guessing Carmelo is now the valet. Hayes stated that Williams is in good shape and needs someone to whoop him tonight. Waller claimed that”I’m a wrestler on SmackDown and I’m wrestling legends right now not flops like Williams. Hayes stated that Williams will take his best shot at winning tonight. Grayson agreed and Williams was shocked and surprised.

Winner: Arianna Grace

In the backstage area, Ava was asked why she was seen walking between the doors from Shawn Michaels office and making matches. Ava explained that it came to my attention several months ago after a wise person told me that if the brand grows, Shawn Michaels may need an assistant. That’s the role I play. I have a special relationship to members of the NXT roster. It is my personal thoughts. Sometimes they are successful. Sometimes, they do not. The only thing I know to work is that the week following will be the beginning of the men’s Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic.

In the backstage area, Nikkita Lyons snuck up from behind Blair Davenport and said I could have escorted your place like you did me for a period of 10 months. Davenport stated that your only chance of getting me out was from behind and not face-to-face. They argued, and officials split the two.

I’ll be there for you. Williams has said that we discussed this. I’d like to face this on my own. I’d like to fight Dragunov on my own, Waller by myself, and I’d like to do this the same way I’ve always done it by myself. Hayes told me that while we were training You were on your own? Williams told me I must manage this play alone.

In the backstage area, Andre Chase told Duke Hudson that we’ve got The Dusty Cup coming up. Jacy Jayne said to Chase that he should not. I’m taking over the job now, with your experience and track record indicates that you cannot concentrate on two things at a time So, your primary goal for the future will be your credit. The focus will be Duke Hudson and Riley Osborne in the Dusty Cup. I’m going to find us some money, and Thea Hail will assist me. I’m planning to revive Chase U from the depths of hell and bring it back to the top of the pile.
