Tonight, Shotzi promises to break LeRae's best friend.

Match: Tyler Rust vs Tommaso Ciampa

We cut back to the ring and Tyler Rust is already in the ring, psyching himself up for this. Cue the awesome theme music, because here comes Tommaso Ciampa!

Match: Indi Hartwell vs Shotzi Blackheart

It's official, Gargano's group is called The Way. Indi is in the ring, warming up as her friends cheer her on. Shotzi Blackheart is out next to loud cheers, driving her new tank to the ring. On the front of the tank is TCB, which Beth Phoenix explains means "Taking Care of Business."

Backstage w/ Mackenzie & Isaiah "Swerve" Scott, then Ever Rise

Scott is asked about his loss to Jake Atlas last week and refusing to shake his hand. Scott says he was frustrated, and he gets frustrated when he loses, especially to someone "like Jake Atlas." He passive aggressively insults Atlas and tells Mackenzie that he's got a match next week against Atlas to settle things. As he leaves, Ever Rise shows up. They tell her that technically they didn't lose last week and talked to William Regal to make sure it's not on the record book as a loss. They then say they're undefeated and coming for Goldberg. Mackenzie asks them if they're saying they want a rematch, and Chase threatens to take a swing at Mackenzie. They eventually leave, and Mackenzie tells us she's got nothing to add to it.

New Year's Evil Host

We see Lumis on his perch, drawing on the tablet and the iPad screen is projected to the nearby tron screen. We find out that Lumis will be the host of New Year's Evil, as he's drawn a picture of himself and "New Year's Evil" with the word "host" scribbled beneath his visage. We go to break.

In Closing

Six matches tonight in a very strong episode of NXT. The Dunne/O'Reilly match was lengthy but very entertaining, as was the Ciampa/Rust match (surprisingly). Don't forget that Smackdown airs on FS1 this Friday in what's being hailed as a special edition of Smackdown. Y'all be safe, stay warm (or cool, you Aussies and Kiwis) and we'll see you all back Friday night for Smackdown! Also: The Disqus comment system is undergoing maintenance, again, on a Wednesday but that's out of our control. Sorry, chaps! I'll assume you were all cheering for NXT as the superior show over AEW!
