WWE Universe is eagerly waiting to witness the NXT Battleground 2024 premium live event, this weekend which is going to be the first joint production from WWE and UFC after the two brands have been placed under the same TKO banner. For the first time, a WWE Show will take place in a UFC venue, and the experiment might lead to something bigger.

One of the big attractions of NXT Battleground 2024 will feature an Underground Match where Lola Vice will compete against Shayna Baszler. Both these names had prior background in the MMA ring which promises this one to be a unique physical contest. Besides, things have become personal between the two since Vice turned on Baszler, a few weeks ago.

While no confirmation is there as to whether this stipulation will be added or not, the concept remains on hold,

‘We had heard of at least one pitch for Lola Vice and Shayna Baszler’s NXT Underground match to take place inside a UFC Octagon at Battleground, but have not heard if this is officially planned for NXT’s visit to the UFC Apex this weekend.”
