WWE has announced two additions to the card for this week’s NXT.
Killer Kross and Scarlett are kicking off tonight’s show, with Kross having his second match for NXT. His opponent hasn’t been revealed.
Kross made his NXT in-ring debut by defeating Leon Ruff two weeks ago. He hit two Doomsday Saito suplexes and then submitted Ruff with the Kross Jacket.
Roderick Strong vs. Dexter Lumis has also been announced for tonight’s NXT. Last week, a video call aired where all four members of the Undisputed Era chose Strong to be the one to face Lumis.
Lumis got involved when Strong and Bobby Fish tried to interfere in Cole’s NXT Championship defense against Velveteen Dream two weeks ago. A ref bump took place while Lumis was fighting with Strong and Fish during that match. Dream hit the Purple Rainmaker and got a visual pinfall on Cole, but there was no referee to count the pin.
Dream then woke the referee up and took out Strong and Fish. When Dream got back in the ring, Cole hit a superkick and the Last Shot to retain his title.
Rhea Ripley vs. Io Shirai is also set for tonight’s NXT. Plus, group action in NXT’s interim Cruiserweight Championship tournament will conclude with Kushida (2-0) vs. Drake Maverick (1-1) in a Group A match and Akira Tozawa (2-0) vs. El Hijo del Fantasma (1-1) in Group B.
