An appearance by the new NXT Women's Champion will be kicking off tonight's NXT.

WWE has announced that Mandy Rose will open tonight's NXT episode. While making the announcement, Rose promised that she's got a few tricks up her sleeve.

Rose won the NXT Women's Championship by defeating Raquel Gonzalez in a Trick or Street Fight at Halloween Havoc last Tuesday. Gonzalez lost the match after Dakota Kai made her return to NXT and renewed their rivalry. While dressed as a hooded figure, Kai hit Gonzalez in the back with a shovel. Rose then pinned Gonzalez after hitting a knee strike.

Rose's Toxic Attraction stablemates Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne also became champions at Halloween Havoc. They defeated Io Shirai & Zoey Stark and Indi Hartwell & Persia Pirotta in a triple threat Scareway to Hell ladder match to win the NXT Women's Tag Team titles.

Here's the updated lineup for tonight's show:

  • Johnny Gargano & Dexter Lumis vs. NXT North American Champion Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams
  • Kyle O'Reilly & Von Wagner vs. Legado del Fantasma (Raul Mendoza & Joaquin Wilde)
  • Dakota Kai vs. Cora Jade
