NXT TakeOver 31 is set to take place in just a couple of days, and ahead of the big pay-per-view, WWE has announced that the NXT Cruiserweight Championship will be up for grabs, when Santos Escobar will defend his belt against Isaiah “Swerve” Scott. 

Scott has been gunning for another shot at the Cruiserweight Championship for a couple of weeks, and has already defeated Escobar in a handful of matches, including a Six-Man Street Fight alongside Breezango. During their first title match, Escobar head butted Scott while wearing what seemed to be a loaded mask, and retained his belt. 

Now, Scott will get another shot to take on Escobar, and will be looking to capitalize. NXT TakeOver 31 will take place on Sunday, October 4, at 7:00 p.m. ET, and will be streamed on WWE Network.
