We’re not only on the Road To Wrestlemania, but also to NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver. It’s the first ever two night NXT Takeover event, which means double the open card slots. The roster is on high alert and looking to show their best as we inch closer. Tonight, the true NXT Cruiserweight Champion Jordan Devlin returns to action in the United States as he faces KUSHIDA. Also the future of the NXT Tag Team Championships will be announced, and WALTER returns to action. Those are just the tip of tonight’s iceberg, let’s break this card down.
Jordan Devlin & KUSHIDA Are Set To Deliver A Classic
The biggest announced match for most fans tonight is between Jordan Devlin & KUSHIDA. Prior to COVID-19 shutdowns, Devlin & KUSHIDA were mixing it up at NXT Live Events, to great reviews. This feud was never able to make it to TV, but tonight fans finally get to see what The Irish Ace can do with the former Junior Heavyweight ace of NJPW.
Devlin is on a crash course with the other NXT Cruiserweight Champion, Santos Escobar. Their unification match comes at NXT Takeover, but should KUSHIDA be able to beat Devlin here tonight? He will be in the conversation to face the victor of that match.
William Regal Addresses The Status Of The NXT Tag Team Championships, And Has A Solution For Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly
Last week on WWE NXT, Karrion Kross teamed with NXT Champion Finn Balor to take on the NXT Tag Team Champions, Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch. At one point, he hit both men with a double suplex, and Burch landed hard on his shoulder. The shoulder is separated, and therefore the NXT Tag Team Championships are now vacant. William Regal will address the next steps for those belts tonight.
Regal also has come up with a solution for the blood feud between Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly, who got arrested last week on NXT TV. He’s kept his lips closed about this one, but knowing Regal… it could be anything.
WALTER Returns To Action In The United States
Devlin isn’t the only one back from the UK for NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver season, as The Ring General WALTER is back. He attacked Tommaso Ciampa last week, and tonight he steps back into the NXT ring to squish Drake Maverick
Also announced is Jessi Kamea & Aliyah challenge for the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships, LA Knight vs. Bronson Reed, Karrion Kross vs. Oney Lorcan, and Zoey Stark & Io Shirai vs. Dakota Kai & Raquel Gonzalez.
