The next episode of WWE NXT will have two gimmick matches on the card. Per WWE’s announcement, NXT Women’s Tag Team Champions Ember Moon and Shotzi Blackheart will defend their titles against The Way – Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell in a Street Fight where there would be no basic rules and anything goes.
WWE NXT General Manager William Regal already announced a title shot for The Way, last week. This week, he announced The Street Fight stipulation after The Way attacked Moon and Blackheart, prior to their non-title match with Aliyah and Jessi Kamea.
A Falls Count Anywhere Match will also go down, next week between Leon Ruff and Isaiah “Swerve” Scott as their rivalry continues for quite sometimes, now. This week’s WWE NXT featured a promo where Swerve declared that the squared circle won’t be able to contain them. The Falls Count Anywhere Match stipulation was then added to their next match.
Finn Balor is also set to return, next week. The former WWE NXT Champion hasn’t been seen since dropping the title to Karrion Kross on Night Two of the recent “Takeover: Stand and Deliver” event during the WrestleMania 37 Weekend.
Balor took to Twitter to reveal that he and his wife, FOX Sports on-air talent Vero Rodríguez were spending a vacation in Mexico. He is now refreshed and ready to be back,
“Viva mexico! Recharged, refreshed & refocused. Next Tuesday, Finn is back.”
