Two More Matches Announced For Tonight's WWE NXT


The announcements keep coming for tonight's WWE NXT show.

As noted, NXT General Manager William Regal announced a women's tag-team bout for the opening match on tonight's NXT on USA show, as Io Shirai and Tegan Nox face Candice LeRae and Dakota Kai.

Additionally, Isaiah "Swerve" Scott vs. Jake Atlas and a tag-team match featuring reigning NXT Tag-Team Champions Imperium -- Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel -- against a team yet-to-be announced.

WWE had previously announced the NXT TakeOver: XXX North American Championship Ladder Match Qualifier pitting Finn Bálor vs. Dexter Lumis vs. Timothy Thatcher, Keith Lee responding to Karrion Kross, Johnny Gargano vs. Roderick Strong and Shotzi Blackheart vs. Mercedes Martinez for tonight's show as well.

Featured below are the additional announcements regarding Scott vs. Atlas and Imperium's return for tonight's NXT On USA, courtesy of WWE.com.

Isaiah "Swerve" Scott and Jake Atlas collide in pivotal Cruiserweight matchup

Isaiah “Swerve” Scott made a very good point on the most recent edition of WWE 205 Live: He is the only Superstar to defeat Santos Escobar since the leader of Legado del Fantasma debuted in WWE.

Granted it was when Escobar was competing as El Hijo del Fantasma and before he recruited Joaquin Wilde and Raul Mendoza to watch his back, but “Swerve” nevertheless made quite the impression in the seesaw battle and is targeting a title bout with the NXT Cruiserweight Champion.

He’ll have a chance to strengthen his case tonight on NXT when he clashes with Jake Atlas, who came just one win away from competing for the NXT Cruiserweight Title during a recent eight-man tournament to determine a new champion, though he was defeated by Drake Maverick in a Triple Threat Match that also included Kushida. Now, Atlas is looking to reenter the title picture.

Which Superstar will claim a pivotal victory? Find out on NXT tonight at 8/7 C!

The NXT Tag Team Champions Imperium return to action tonight:

The era of Imperium continues as the NXT Tag Team Champions return to action tonight on the black-and-gold brand.

Fabian Aichner & Marcel Barthel dispatched their last challenge from Breezango in a chaotic tag team match that saw Indus Sher and Danny Burch & Oney Lorcan create a brawl outside the ring. Will one of those tandems step up to the titleholders, or will a new force emerge within the division?
