WWE has announced a tag team match for tonight’s episode of NXT, which is set to be a big show.
This afternoon WWE confirmed that Rhea Ripley and Shotzi Blackheart will be looking for payback on The Robert Stone Brand as they’ll battle Aliyah and Mercedes Martinez.
The reason that this is a big show is due to AEW Dynamite being preempted because of TNT’s coverage of the NBA Playoffs. Dynamite will air this Saturday instead of tonight. Thus, NXT will not have competition from a wrestling promotion.
Here is the updated card:
Tag Team Match:
Shotzi Blackheart and Rhea Ripley vs. Aliyah and Mercedes Martinez
Johnny Gargano vs. Ridge Holland
Finn Balor vs. Velveteen Dream.
Six-Man Tag Team Match:
Legado del Fantasma (NXT Cruiserweight Champion Santos Escobar, Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde) will face Isaiah "Swerve" Scott & Breezango.
Adam Cole and Pat McAfee to meet face-to-face ahead of their match
