Mandy Rose is set for action on tonight's episode of NXT.

WWE has announced that Rose vs. Ember Moon will kick off tonight's episode of NXT. The match comes one week after Rose set her sights on the NXT Women's Championship by attacking Raquel Gonzalez.

Gonzalez retained her NXT Women's Championship against Franky Monet in the main event of last week's NXT. In an angle following the match, Toxic Attraction (Rose, Gigi Dolin, and Jacy Jayne) beat down Monet, Jessi Kamea, and Robert Stone on the ramp. Toxic Attraction then surrounded the ring as Gonzalez was in it. Gonzalez tried to fight them off, but Toxic Attraction's numbers advantage was too much.

Rose laid out Gonzalez with a knee strike and then posed with the NXT Women's title belt.

Rose and Gonzalez also had an interaction earlier on last week's show where Rose said the NXT Women's Championship looks good on Gonzalez, but it'll look a lot better on her.

Moon last wrestled on 205 Live two weeks ago, defeating Cora Jade. Moon was on a four-match losing streak prior to that.

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

  • NXT Tag Team Champions MSK, Josh Briggs & Brooks Jensen vs. The Grizzled Young Veterans, Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams
  • Odyssey Jones vs. LA Knight
  • Cora Jade in action
  • The debut of Tony D'Angelo
  • Ikemen Jiro vs. Joe Gacy
  • Mandy Rose vs. Ember Moon
