On the road to a potential NXT Championship match against Tommaso Ciampa, Bron Breakker will face off with Roderick Strong.
WWE has announced that Breakker vs. Strong will take place on next Tuesday's episode of NXT. The match was made after Strong's manager Malcolm Bivens interrupted Breakker on tonight's show.
Breakker pinned Ciampa to get the win in the men's WarGames match on Sunday. Breakker then cut a promo on tonight's NXT challenging Ciampa to an NXT Championship match. But Bivens instead made his way out alongside Diamond Mine's Creed Brothers and Ivy Nile. Bivens challenged Breakker to face Strong next week. Bivens said Breakker may have his sights set on Ciampa, but Strong's sights are on Breakker.
Breakker accepted the challenge, saying he doesn't care who he has to run through to get another title match against Ciampa.
Ciampa retained his NXT Championship against Breakker at Halloween Havoc this October.
WWE has also announced that Harland will make his in-ring debut on NXT next Tuesday. His opponent hasn't been revealed.
Harland (real name Parker Boudreaux) debuted on NXT this October and is aligned with Joe Gacy. Strong defeated Gacy to retain the NXT Cruiserweight Championship at WarGames.
Here's the full list of what's been announced for next week's NXT:
- Bron Breakker vs. Roderick Strong
- Harland's in-ring debut
- No holds barred match: Cameron Grimes vs. Duke Hudson
- Tony D'Angelo vs. Andre Chase
- Boa vs. Edris Enofe
Grimes vs. Hudson is a rematch from NXT WarGames. Grimes defeated Hudson in a hair vs. hair match at that show.
