NXT Breakout Tournament semifinals set


The NXT Breakout Tournament is down to its final four wrestlers.

Trey Baxter defeated Joe Gacy on tonight's NXT to advance to the semifinals of the Breakout Tournament. Odyssey Jones will be Baxter's opponent in the next round.

Duke Hudson vs. Carmelo Hayes is the Breakout Tournament's other semifinal match. The winner of that match will advance to face the winner of Jones vs. Baxter in the finals. WWE hasn't announced when the finals will be taking place.

Jones advanced to the semifinals by defeating Andre Chase in the first round. Hudson defeated Ikemen Jiro in the first round, while Hayes defeated Josh Briggs.

The winner of the Breakout Tournament will receive a shot at the NXT title of their choosing. The tournament will continue on NXT next Tuesday. 

This is the second-ever NXT Breakout Tournament. Jordan Myles (ACH) won the inaugural tournament in 2019.

Baxter (formerly known as Blake Christian) and Hayes (formerly known as Christian Casanova) both signed with WWE earlier this year. Hudson (Brendan Vink) and Jones (former Syracuse football player Omari Palmer) signed with WWE in 2019.

Hudson formerly teamed with Shane Thorne on both NXT and Raw.
