Breakker levels Ziggler with a clothesline, then a big Spear.
Breakker presses Ziggler above his head but Ziggler rakes him in the eyes. Ziggler uses the eye rake to slide down back to the mat, then shove Breakker into an exposed turnbuckle, which Barrett says he saw Ziggler undo earlier in the match. Ziggler immediately follows up with a superkick for the pin to win and retain.
Winner: Dolph Ziggler
After the match, Roode rushes the ring and stands tall with Ziggler as the music hits. We go to replays. The Dirty Dawgs continue celebrating on the ramp as Breakker slowly recovers in the ring. NXT Stand & Deliver goes off the air with Ziggler raising the NXT Title in the air.
