Hot off the heels of Candice LeRae and Indi Hartwell winning the NXT Women’s Tag Team Championships, there will be plenty of gold on the line next week as well.

Firstly, Raquel Gonzalez will make her first defence of the NXT Women’s Championship against the vetern Mercedes Martinez.

Kushida will also put the Cruiserweight Championship on the line in a rematch against Santos Escobar.

In addition to this, Karrion Kross will have a singles match with Austin Theory.

This came about after Kross was challenged on NXT by a number of the top title competitors on NXT – Kyle O’Reilly, Pete Dunne, and the returning Finn Balor.

Although Kross managed to come out on top when the inevitable brawl ensued, he was then blindsided by Theory and his The Way cohort Johnny Gargano.

Finally, also confirmed for next week is a singles match between Killian Dain and Imperium’s Alexander Wolfe.

This is a lot confirmed well in advance, with plenty of other storylines which could intertwine with all of this showing the depth the black and gold brand has at the moment.
