NXT Super Tuesday II: Opening Match, "Battle Of The Bad Asses" Steel Cage Match Announced


A fourth match is now official for this week's NXT Super Tuesday II special on the USA Network, which premieres on Tuesday, September 8, 2020 at 8/7c.

WWE announced via their official website that the previously announced match between Finn Balor and Adam Cole for the vacant NXT World Championship will kick off the event on Tuesday night as the opening bout for the NXT Super Tuesday II show.

As noted, WWE added a new singles contest pitting Roderick Strong vs. Killian Dain to join the other previously announced non-title singles match on the show, which will see Bronson Reed vs. Austin Theory in one-on-one action.

Closing the show as the official headline bout at NXT Super Tuesday II this week will be a Steel Cage Match featuring Rhea Ripley vs. Mercedes Martinez of The Robert Stone Brand in a bout WWE is billing as "The Battle of The Badasses."

WWE.com released the following announcements:

See Finn Bálor and Adam Cole battle for the NXT Title, plus Rhea Ripley against Mercedes Martinez in a Steel Cage Match this Tuesday night

Two massive showdowns come your way this Tuesday night on NXT Super Tuesday II.

First, Finn Bálor will face Adam Cole for the vacant NXT Title to kick off the show. Both men are seeking to become two-time champions after tying in last week’s epic 4-Way 60-Minute Iron Man Match.

Plus, it’s The Battle of The Badasses as Rhea Ripley looks to settle the score with Mercedes Martinez in a Steel Cage Match in the main event.

Tune in for these two huge bouts and more tomorrow night at 8/7 C on USA Network!

Rhea Ripley to face off with Mercedes Martinez inside a Steel Cage at NXT Super Tuesday II

Rhea Ripley is tired of playing games with Mercedes Martinez and The Robert Stone Brand, and she isn’t hiding it.

That’s why she has called for Martinez to face her inside a Steel Cage — a challenge her rival eagerly accepted, setting the stage for The Battle of The Badasses in the main event of NXT Super Tuesday II

Martinez and The Robert Stone Brand have been a gigantic thorn in The Nightmare’s side for weeks. First, Martinez intervened in Ripley’s bout against Dakota Kai, costing her a potential NXT Women’s Championship opportunity against Io Shirai.

Teaming up last month with Shotzi Blackheart to face Martinez and Robert Stone Brand compatriot Aliyah, Ripley fired back with a devastating powerbomb to Martinez on the concrete.

That wasn’t enough to keep Martinez at bay. She again antagonized Ripley two weeks ago, ambushing her during a tag team match against Kai and Raquel González, costing her another victory.

Now, Ripley’s looking to put an end to her issue with Martinez once and for all in an unforgiving Steel Cage Match. But with Martinez more than eager for a battle, who will emerge victorious?

Don’t miss what promises to be a brutal encounter on NXT Super Tuesday, Tuesday night at 8/7 C on USA Network!

With that now known, featured below is a look at the updated official lineup for the NXT Super Tuesday II show on 9/8/2020:
