NXT Women's Championship Match: Mercedes Martinez vs. Raquel Gonzalez (champ)
Imperium has gotten the better of Drake Maverick and Killian Dain in recent weeks. Dain will now get a chance to face Alexander Wolfe in a one-on-one match. One would think the rest of Imperium won't be far behind.
Austin Theory crossed the line last week when he made some suggestive comments to Scarlett. As a results, per Scarlett's request, Theory will go one-on-one with NXT Champion Karrion Kross in a non-title match.
NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida and Santos Escobar had a great match in their previous encounter. They'll be raising the bar this time when Escobar gets his rematch as they'll go one-on-one in a 2 out of 3 falls match. Will Kushida retain or will Escobar reclaim the gold?
Mercedes Martinez is the first person to challenge Raquel Gonzalez for her NXT Women's Championship. Will Martinez be the one to end Gonzalez's run? Gonzalez believes that Martinez is just the first of many challengers that will fall to her. What happens when these two powerhouses go one-on-one?
Tune in tomorrow to see what goes down!
UPDATED: Kyle O'Reilly and Oney Lorcan got into a confrontation earlier today in the parking at the Capitol Wrestling Center. O'Reilly challenged Lorcan to a match and it's now official.
