The winner of that match will challenge Johnny Gargano for the NXT North American Championship on night two.

The final match, also confirmed for night one, will see Pete Dunne clash with KUSHIDA. Issues between the two spilled over in the battle royal as they were both eliminated early on. Before the match had even concluded, NXT General Manager William Regal had confirmed this match for TakeOver.
