Lio Rush vs. Jordan Devlin(c) [NXT Cruiserweight Championship match]
The first in-ring action of the night featured the battle for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship. Lio Rush got the upper hand initially and that forced The Irish Ace to take time to regroup.
Back from the commercial, Jordan Devlin had the upper hand. Rush managed to survive multiple suplexes from the Champion. A Crossface submission further weakened The Man of the Hour and although he made attempts to counter, Devlin would not allow him to build on the momentum.
Finally, Rush managed to lock The Irish Ace in a submission of his own but Devlin got out of it as well. The former Cruiserweight Champion didn't give up and hit an avalanche poisonrana on Jordan Devlin and followed it up with a Cutter. However, Lio Rush couldn't capitalize and eventually, it was the NXT UK Superstar who earned the three count owing to the Devlin Side.
Result: Jordan Devlin defeated Lio Rush to retain the NXT Cruiserweight Championship
