WWE is already loading up the card for next week’s episode of NXT.
First, Mercedes Martinez will face Dakota Kai in a match with potential NXT Women’s Championship implications. The champion, Raquel González, is tag team partners with Kai, so a win over the former NXT Women’s Tag Team Champion could boost Martinez up the proverbial rankings.
Next, Bronson Reed will face Austin Theory of The Way. If Reed wins, he’ll get another shot at NXT North American Champion Johnny Gargano. Reed lost a title match against Gargano at NXT TakeOver: Stand & Deliver.
Finally, NXT Cruiserweight Champion Kushida will team up with the NXT Tag Tea Champions, MSK to face Legado del Fantasma in a six-man tag team match.
