Tag team match will kick off tonight’s WWE NXT episode

WWE had William Regal announce not only a new match for tonight’s episode of NXT but also the match that will kick off the show.

The NXT General Manager took to his official Twitter account this afternoon to announce that NXT Women’s Champion Io Shirai will team up with Tegan Nox to take on Candice LeRae and Dakota Kai in a tag team match.

The four stars have been feuding as of late. This is the third new match to be announced today to further hype the broadcast. Regal made the announcement by writing the following:

“This evening’s episode of #WWENXT will feature action befitting the black and gold brand and I’m excited to announce the match that will kick off tonight’s show:

@WWENXT Women’s Champion @shirai_io will team with @TeganNoxWWE_ against @CandiceLeRae and @DakotaKai_WWE!”
