Finally, GSM closes out the episode with NXT and AEW Dynamite thoughts and talks Dominik Dijakovic challenging Keith Lee for the NXT North American Championship, the great back-and-forth between Johnny Gargano and Finn Balor, Jordan Devlin's potential, the six-man tag team main event and Velveteen Dream returning afterward, matches on tap for upcoming episodes of Dynamite, Britt Baker continuing her heel turn, tension within The Elite, MJF giving Cody 10 lashes, and more!
