5Roderick Strong vs. Dexter Lumis, Velveteen Dream Seeks Revenge
A late addition to the card was Roderick Strong vs. Dexter Lumis in a singles match.
It was a decent hard-hitting affair. In an interesting finish, Strong went over Lumis.
This match was interesting as WWE has been pushing Lumis, a former Impact Wrestling star, in recent weeks by having him do squash matches. This was his first real test against Strong, who has been someone that NXT has been behind for quite some time now as part of The Undisputed Era.
After the match, Lumis attacked Strong but was beaten down by the group until The Velveteen Dream ran out and made the save. Lumis and Dream stood tall to end the segment.
Dream already lost to Cole with the title on the line but it appears this feud is going on further.
