Adam Cole vs Aleister Black (Fatal 4-Way Qualifier)

Adam Cole controlled the match early as he took Black down to the canvas. Cole taunted Black and that pissed him off. Aleister launched Cole across the ring and connected with a flurry of kicks that knocked Cole out of the ring. NXT went to a commercial break with Aleister Black sitting in the middle of the ring as Cole was on the outside.

When NXT returned, Cole was back in control of the match and had a Chin Lock applied in the middle of the ring. The crowd cheered on Black as he fought through the pain and slowly made his way towards the bottom rope. Cole then stomped on Black several times while talking trash at the same time.

Cole backed off his attack and allowed Black to get back up to his feet. Black used the opening to hit Cole with some ridiculous kicks and then Aleister followed it up with a springboard Hurricanrana. Aleister went for the Black Mass but Cole was able to dodge it. Black connected with a kick for a two count. Cole planted Black with a Backstabber for a two count.

Both Superstars traded punches in the middle of the ring. Cole got the upper-hand and connected with a Neckbreaker for a two count. Cole attempted to knee Black in the face but Aleister blocked it. Cole then went for a Superkick but Black once again blocked it. Cole once again started barking at Aleister and wound up getting caught with Black Mass for the pinfall victory.

Winner: Aleister Black
