Next week’s episode of NXT is going to be a big one, and will include even more Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic matches, as well as a match for the NXT Cruiserweight Championship.
Confirmed during tonight’s episode, Santos Escobar will defend his title against Curt Stallion, a superstar from 205 Live that is quickly rising through the ranks. Elsewhere in the night, Finn Balor will team up with Kyle O’Reilly to take on Oney Lorcan & Danny Burch, and two more matches in the Dusty Rhodes Tag Team Classic will take place. In the first, MSK will take on the fan-favorite duo of Drake Maverick & Killian Dain, and Grizzled Young Veterans will take on Kushida & Leon Ruff in the second round of the tournament.
