NXT 8/17/2021 Preview: Two Championship Matches; Kross/Joe Face-to-Face; More!



Here's what's on tap for tonight’s NXT:

  • Breakout Tournament - Semi-Final Match: Carmelo Hayes vs. Duke Hudson

  • NXT Cruiserweight Championship Match: Roderick Strong w/ Diamond Mine vs. Kushida (champ)

  • Mixed Tag Team Match: Dexter Lumis & Indi Hartwell vs. Robert Stone & Jessi Kamea w/ Franky Monet

  • NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez and Dakota Kai issue final words to each other before Takeover

  • NXT Tag Team Championship Match: Imperium vs. MSK (champs)

  • NXT Champion Karrion Kross and Samoa Joe meet face-to-face before their Takeover clash

The last semi-final match in the Breakout Tournament takes place when Carmelo Hayes faces Duke Hudson. Both men were impressive in the opening round. Who will advance to face Odyssey Jones in the finals?


Malcom Bivens has promised big things for the Diamond Mine. NXT Cruiserweight Champion, Kushida, was their first target when they arrived on the scene. Will Kushida be able to hold on to the gold or will Roderick Strong help Bivens put Diamond Mine on the map?


Jessie Kamea told Franky Money in an exclusive interview last week that if she had the opportunity, she would mess up Indi Hartwell. Robert Stone would then make a bold claim that he could beat Dexter Lumis in less than a minute. We'll see if that actually happens when we have a mixed tag team match tonight.


NXT Women's Champion Raquel Gonzalez and her Takeover challenger, Dakota Kai, will issue some final words for each other ahead of their Takeover championship match this weekend.


Imperium has been relentless in route to earning a tag team championship match. Meanwhile, MSK has proven their toughness with a win over Tommaso Ciampa and Timothy Thatcher. Who walks out as the champs when these two teams meet?


NXT Champion Karrion Kross has been sure to keep his distance from Samoa Joe ever since he provoked him weeks ago. Kross has found multiple ways to keep Joe's blood boiling including attacking William Regal. What will happen when these two meet face-to-face before their huge Takeover match?


Tune in tonight to see what goes down!
