  • Multiple Cameos: Former NXT veteran "the Bruiserweight" Pete Dunne wished NXT UK Champion Tyler Bate luck this weekend; Shayna Baszler warned Rose to win this weekend and unify or "everything you've said this last year is garbage."

Former NXT UK Champion WALTER (now known as Intercontinental Champion Gunther) showed up to wish Bate well and encouraged Bate to bring out the beast that fought 45 minutes with WALTER in Cardiff for the NXT UK title. Former NXT Women's Champion, former NXT UK Women's Champion, former Raw Women's Champion & former WWE Women's Tag Team Champion Rhea Ripley showed up to encourage Blair Davenport to unify the titles, something no one's ever done (in NXT/NXT UK). Last, but not least, Ciampa showed up to encourage Bron to do whatever it took to keep Goldie.
