Tonight’s episode of NXT opened with a huge triple threat match, where Kushida, Tommaso Ciampa, and Velveteen Dream took each other on. After feuding with each other for a few weeks, Kushida and Dream used the opportunity to go at each other, but it was Kushida who walked away with a win after Ciampa fell victim to an inadvertent blindside attack.

Towards the end of the back and forth match, Velveteen Dream – who was wearing a cast on his left hand – was thrown outside of the ring, with Kushida and Ciampa fighting inside. Kushida shoved Ciampa into the ropes, where he collided with Dream, who was attempting to get back in the ring. Unfortunately for Ciampa, he hit his head against Dream’s cast, knocking him out and allowing Kushida to land a german suplex on him for the victory.
