NXT is really hitting its stride once again after moving to Tuesday nights, and it’s time for another episode! We are going to have some seriously hard hitting action, considering both pre-announced matches fall under hardcore rules. Leon Ruff meets Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott in a Falls Count Anywhere match, while Shotzi Blackheart & Ember Moon defend their NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships against The Way in a Street Fight. In addition to those two huge matches, former NXT Champion Finn Balor is back.
Finn Balor Took Some Time Off, But It’s Time To Get Back To Business
At NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver, someone was finally able to stop Finn Balor as NXT Champion. Karrion Kross was able to smash through Balor to get the win, and reclaim the championship he never lost. Finn Balor took some time off after this, taking a vacation down to Mexico with his wife, but now it’s time to get back to business. Balor isn’t going to take this loss lightly, and tonight we will find out what is next for him. Will he go after Kross, or pick up where he left off with a certain NXT UK Champion…
Ember Moon, Shotzi Blackheart, & Candice LeRae Were Built For Hardcore Rules
The NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships are already starting to feel more important than the WWE Women’s Tag Team Championships, simply due to the level of competition that NXT provides. Ember Moon & Shotzi Blackheart have been excellent as champions, and The Way are one good night away from dethroning them.
We know Moon & Blackheart are hardcore, and anyone who doubts Candice LeRae can go in a Street Fight they just need to look into her past. The only random variable in this match is Indi Hartwell. She’s untested in this environment, and has her relationship with Dexter Lumis looming over her. Will she be the one to take the fall in this one? Or will she thrive as a hardcore wrestler?
Leon Ruff & Isaiah ‘Swerve’ Scott Finish Their Feud For Good
While The Way vs. Blackheart & Moon is a street fight, it needs to end in the ring. Ruff & Swerve can finish their last fight anywhere in the WWE Performance Center. Ever since Swerve decided that Ruff was being handed chances in NXT, and Ruff decided to fight back, they’ve been in a brutal war. Swerve won a one on one match between them, before Ruff attacked him backstage. Tonight, they go to war. We know Swerve can go deep into a fight like this, but can Ruff?
