Before he can say anything else, Dragon Lee's theme hits and the masked newcomer to the scene in NXT emerges. Booker T calls this his Shucky-Ducky Quack-Quack moment of the evening as he heads down to the ring. He tells Wes it's nice to meet him. Wes says it's good to meet him, too.
Dragon Lee says he loves the chaos and mentions wanting to be part of the challenge for the NXT North American Championship at NXT Stand & Deliver. Wes Lee says he's been following his career from Mexico and makes it official -- Dragon Lee has the first of the four spots for the bout.

Vic Joseph and Booker T set up the next segment, which features the newest member of the broadcast team, Blake Howard, hosting a debate between Chase U and Schism. Up comes the first member of each side to talk about inclusion as the first debate topic.
Duke Hudson wasn't a very inspiring first speaker on behalf of Chase U. The ladies are up next. The Schism's own female member gives her cult-like take and then the equally brainwashed Thea Hail speaks super fast and crazy smart. When she is complimented, she says she blacked out and didn't remember saying anything.
Now it's time for the leaders of each side. As they are talking, Tyler Bate, who was in the audience, pops up and joins the mix. As does the rest of The Schism and their dead-eyed followers.
Things culminate with a challenge from Chase U to The Schism for a multi-person match at NXT Stand & Deliver. The Schism aren't interested until Duke Hudson blurts out that Chase U will put their entire school on-the-line. The Schism agrees.
That wraps up the debate and now we head to another commercial break. When we return, we see a very drunk and/or exhausted group of Gallus, The Creed Brothers and the duo of Tony D'Angelo and Stacks in the pub. They seem to agree to a triple-threat match at NXT Stand & Deliver for the tag-team titles.
Now we hear Vic Joseph and Booker T run down the updated lineup for the upcoming NXT Stand & Deliver 2023 premium live event set for WrestleMania Goes Hollywood week. After that, we return inside the CWC inside the WWE PC.
The first team for our main event of the evening comes out. Pretty Deadly settles inside the ring and the co-hosts for the aforementioned NXT special event during WrestleMania 39 Weekend are ready for our final match for tonight's show.
Carmelo Hayes and Trick Williams make their way out next and head down to the ring. Their music dies down and the entrance tune for the reigning NXT World Champion plays. With that said, Bron Breakker emerges and joins his NXT Stand & Deliver opponent for tonight's headline bout.
The bell sounds and we're officially off-and-running with this one. We see Breakker and Hayes absolutely dominating the action with relative ease coming out of the gate. As some double-team trickery from Pretty Deadly sees the heel duo grab the offensive driver's seats, we head to a mid-match commercial break as the action continues.
As we settle back in from the break, we see Hayes go on an offensive spree, including a cool spot where he hangs from the middle rope and suplexes one Pretty Deadly member onto the other. We see Pretty Deadly capitalize on some more shenanigans to recapture the offensive control in this one.
Fans try and rally behind Hayes as both members of Pretty Deadly work him over in the ring. Hayes finally manages to buy himself some time, which he uses to make the much-needed tag to Breakker.
The NXT World Champion hits the ring barking, which the fans echo back to him, and begins taking over and taking it to both members of Pretty Deadly. He connects with a bulldog off the top-rope ala his father, WWE Hall of Fame legend Rick Steiner, and then goes for the cover, but it is broken up.
We see Carmelo hit the ring to even the numbers game. Breakker follows up with a huge spear and then he tags Hayes back in. Hayes comes off the top-rope with nothing but net for the pin fall victory. Once the match wraps up, we see Breakker and Hayes each with a hand on the title. Breakker raises it up high and Hayes stares at it as the show goes off the air on that note. Thanks for joining us!
