NXT Champions Io Shirai and Johnny Gargano will be in action tomorrow night, but neither of their belts will be on the line.
After a great debut last week, Zoey Stark will get to go up against the NXT Women’s Champion. NXT General Manager William Regal granted Stark the match after being so impressed by her. However, it is a non-title match since she hasn’t earned a shot at the title from a rankings perspective.

Meanwhile, Johnny Gargano will go up against Dexter Lumis in a non-title bout.
As summed up on WWE.com, “Gargano and Theory have been at odds with the black-and-gold brand’s Tortured Artist for several weeks. The stakes grew more frightful at NXT TakeOver: Vengeance Day when Lumis seemingly abducted Theory right behind Gargano. A dilapidated white van — similar to one we’ve previously seen Lumis involved with — pulled up last week on NXT, and Theory eventually reemerged in the Capitol Wrestling Center, though Lumis was nowhere to be found. Can Johnny Wrestling finally rid The Way of their Lumis problem, or will he be Lumis’ next victim?”
