'Love Her or Lose Her match' to headline next week's WWE NXT


A "Love Her or Lose Her match" will headline next week's episode of NXT.

WWE has announced that Johnny Gargano and Dexter Lumis will face off on NXT next Tuesday. The stipulation is that, if Lumis wins, he'll be able to date Indi Hartwell. If Gargano wins, Hartwell has to stop pursuing a relationship with Lumis.

In storyline, Hartwell has been infatuated with Lumis for months. She proposed the "Love Her or Lose Her match" during a backstage segment with Gargano and Candice LeRae on tonight's NXT. Gargano and LeRae were upset after Hartwell received a drawing from Lumis as a gift. The drawing had Lumis included as part of The Way with Hartwell, Gargano, and LeRae.

Next Tuesday's NXT will again air on Syfy due to a scheduling conflict with the Olympics. NXT will then move back to USA Network the following week.

Here's the full list of what's been announced for next week's NXT:

  • Love Her or Lose Her match: Johnny Gargano vs. Dexter Lumis
  • NXT Breakout tournament first-round match: Trey Baxter vs. Joe Gacy
  • Bobby Fish vs. Roderick Strong
  • Hit Row (Top Dolla & Ashante "Thee" Adonis) vs. Legado del Fantasma (Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde)
