Grayson Waller to face Sanga on WWE NXT

Waller will face his former bodyguard on Tuesday's NXT.

A match between former tag team partners is set for tonight's episode of NXT.

WWE has announced that Grayson Waller will face Sanga on NXT tonight. Sanga (Saurav Gurjar) was introduced as Waller's bodyguard on NXT this January, but their partnership ended when they lost last week's gauntlet match for the vacant NXT Tag Team titles.

Sanga was pinned by Julius Creed in the gauntlet match. Pretty Deadly then defeated The Creed Brothers at the end of the gauntlet to become the new NXT Tag Team Champions.

In a post-show video last week, Waller blamed Sanga for their loss and said their business relationship is over. Waller said he doesn't need anyone and has never needed anyone. Waller declared that he's going to the top of NXT on his own.

WWE has also announced that, following their Tag Team title win last week, Pretty Deadly will be appearing on NXT tonight. Pretty Deadly made their NXT 2.0 debut two weeks ago when they were revealed as The Creed Brothers' mystery attackers.

Before coming to NXT 2.0, Pretty Deadly were part of the NXT UK roster. They held the NXT UK Tag Team titles once.

Here's the updated card for tonight's NXT:

  • Carmelo Hayes vs. Santos Escobar
  • Natalya vs. Tatum Paxley
  • Sarray vs. Tiffany Stratton
  • Grayson Waller vs. Sanga
  • New NXT Tag Team Champions Pretty Deadly appear
