Melo said that the deal was between him and the 'last guy,' so no one cared. Solo threatened the champ before Grayson Waller walked out and teamed up with Melo and Trick to attack Sikoa.

'Melo may have right now... but @WWESoloSikoa's GOT NEXT.#WWENXT @Carmelo_WWE

Sikoa tried to fight back but was overpowered by the trio and got stomped out before NXT continued.

In the parking lot, we saw Tony D'Angelo using the Legado del Fantasma as his personal assistants. Before leaving, Tony told Santos to get in his ring gear because he had a match tonight.
