We see several cars and SUVs driving on a road outside, with sirens and lights flashing. The Way is being driven to the Capitol Wrestling Center for a big celebration. We go to a picture-in-picture commercial.

A car pulls into the backstage area and out comes The Way – NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano, Candice LeRae, Indi Hartwell and Austin Theory. They all head to the ring as fans boo them. There is something on an easel in the ring, hidden by a black cover.

Gargano takes the mic and says that is “the way” you make an entrance. Fans chant “you suck!” now. Gargano talks about some famous curses in history and says none of them compare to his championship curse, which he finally reversed last week. The boos get louder. Gargano says now he is only cursed with being the best, real handsome, a sweet dancer. Candice talks him up and had something done for him, because she loves him so much and doesn’t want him to forget last week. Indi brings in a plaque to commemorate last week’s successful title defense over Leon Ruff.

Theory says Gargano is like a real life superhero, but one thing about superheroes is they are so giving, but never get anything in return. Indi agrees. Theory and Hartwell pull the cover off and reveal a custom drawing of The Way as superheroes. Gargano is impressed. What a great night this is, he says. He found a way to make this night even better. Gargano announces that he and Theory are entering the 2021 Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic tournament. The music interrupts and out comes Shotzi Blackheart on her tank.

Blackheart stops on the stage and howls, and asks Candice if she forgot about her. Theory walks up the ramp talking trash to Blackheart. She fires a projectile at Theory, hitting him below the belt and taking him down. Gargano rushes out and checks on Theory. Blackheart rushes the ring and sends Hartwell to the floor. She tangles with Candice and sends her to the apron, then kicks her in the head, sending her to the floor. Gargano yells at Shotzi and hits the apron. Kushida appears from nowhere and knocks Gargano off the apron. Kushida stands in the ring with Shotzi now as a “Kushida!” chant breaks out.

We see NYE host Dexter Lumis at ringside with the timekeeper’s bell. He points up at the big screen and one of his drawings appears, but it’s for this new mixed tag team match. That was quick. Lumis rings the bell and the match is official.
