Gigi Dolin and Jacy Jayne rushed Carter and Catanzaro after the match and wiped them out with the help of Mandy Rose, who was wearing a medical mask just like Sheamus.


We saw Gargano, Drake Maverick, Odyssey Jones, Zombie referee, and Cameron Grimes at Dexter Lumis' bachelor party. Grimes decided to pay for the party to settle his past feud with Lumis, and Dexter agreed. Indi and LeRae showed up at the venue shortly after to spy on them.

The video package on NXT showed that the group went go-karting first. Lumis taught Gargano how to throw an axe and even went to a Laser Tag arena where Lumis knocked their opponents out before they won the match and the $10,000 bet Grimes made on them.

Gargano and Dexter had a great moment where they high-fived when LeRae and Indi came out of their hiding spot to celebrate.
