The titles will be on the line when Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch open this week’s NXT against Dain & Maverick. The titleholders will be looking to bounce back after a brutal WarGames Match defeat at the hands of The Undisputed ERA. Dain & Maverick found instant success in a stunning victory over Bobby Fish & Roderick Strong in their debut and have engaged in back-and-forth battles with Ever-Rise.
Can Dain & Maverick shock the black-and-gold brand with a breakthrough title win? Or will the championship brawlers be right at home in a Street Fight?

The foursome known as The Way has quickly imposed their will upon NXT, securing a third North American Title reign for Gargano, and most recently leaving rival Shotzi Blackheart lying last week on NXT.
What will they have in store next for the black-and-gold brand?
Rhea Ripley and Dakota Kai set for Wednesday night showdown
The bad blood is set to boil over when Rhea Ripley and Dakota Kai meet on NXT this Wednesday night.

The rivalry between Ripley and Kai has long simmered on the black-and-gold brand. Earlier this summer, The Captain of Team Kick bested The Nightmare in an NXT Women’s Title No. 1 Contender Match thanks to a timely assist from Mercedes Martinez. Kai was once again on the winning side, as Team Candice bested Ripley’s Team Shotzi squad at NXT TakeOver: WarGames. WWE Digital can confirm Kai has been medically cleared following the brutal Women’s WarGames Match.
Who will emerge victorious in the latest chapter between the two standout Superstars?
